Angelo grew up in Mauritius and has been into sport from a young age. He talks to Sundried about training and motivation.

Please tell us about sporting events you have taken part in or have coming up.

I am currently playing football for Catholic United in the Essex Olympian Division Four League.

Tell us about your journey to fitness? Where did it all start?

My journey started back in Mauritius. I began playing football from a very young age and then progressed to playing at a national level. I also competed in various other sports too – athletics, handball, and basketball – during school sporting events. Growing up, fitness has been in every aspect of my life and now I am trying to give it all back.

What are your training goals now?

My training goals are to get stronger, quicker, improve speed and agility, and get shredded.

What's an unusual fact we might not know about you?

I share the same birthday as my Father - 31st of December.

What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?

That it all comes down to consistency and hard work.

What do you do to keep your clients motivated? Do you have any top tips to keep motivated?

My top tips would be not to overthink or over-complicate your life. Everything in life is about finding balance, so too should your approach to fitness.

Talk us through your training regime.

My training regime is quite simple. I do weight training three times a week - push, pull, and legs, as well as 2 days of high intensity interval training (HIIT).

How do you keep your fitness knowledge up to date?

Watching webinars, reading books, going to workshops and via fitness newsletters.

What are your top 3 trainer tips?

1. Master execution.

2. Challenge yourself.

3. Stay consistent.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

My mum's chicken curry with white rice.
