Johnny Hamilton is a 33-year-old personal trainer, actor, and fitness model. After growing up playing rugby, Johnny moved into the fitness industry and trained as an instructor while holding other interests in gymnastics, callisthenics, and trail running. He talks to Sundried about his goals and shares his philosophies.
How did you get into fitness?
I started back when I was 15 playing Rugby at school and haven’t looked back. Back then it started with weightlifting to improve my game, now I stay true to my weightlifting roots and have endeavoured to learn a lot of strongman exercises and Olympic lifts.
What are your fitness aspirations?
I’m training towards a healthy life, whilst trying to maximise the skills I pick up along the way. I love the learning element of gymnastics, spending time practising and mastering new moves regardless of age. I love the challenging bodyweight exercises of callisthenics and am always finding new ways to move my body and test it with static holds.
What is your training philosophy?
I stay fit because it makes you feel good, it is that simple. If you look good, you no doubt feel good. Time in the gym is never wasted, be it for stress relief or simply to achieve that better level of fitness, it is worth it.
Why work with Sundried?
As an active person and personal trainer, I particularly warmed to Sundried’s trousers for personal trainers and Dom Tee. The trousers were very comfortable to work in and still had a professional look and feel to them. If I need to train I’m ready to just grab my bag and head off for a workout. Working as a model, I was impressed at the attention to detail and design points the brand offer. I need to be on trend and am happy I’ve got Sundried activewear to help me achieve this.
