Personal Trainer at City
Area of expertise: Strength & Conditioning Coach (Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation), Fat Loss
Even before choosing to pursue a career in health and fitness both academically and professionally; Shayaan worked on both aspects respectively. Through various sporting activities, gym sessions and practising a healthy balanced diet, he realised the positive effect this had on his well-being and performance. He took this passion one step further when he developed an interest in the human form and the bio-mechanics involved in movement.
He fulfilled his fascination through completing a Sport & Exercise Science BSc., for which he graduated with a First-Class Honours degree. His academic prowess saw him publish prize-winning research in injury prevention. Further to this, Shayaan was keen to develop himself further by training to become a REPs Level 3 Qualified Personal Trainer and attending the UKSCA Strength & Conditioning workshops.
After completion of his studies and training, Shayaan bolstered his experience by taking on various coaching roles both in the UK and abroad. Starting with voluntary roles and internships, he supported a charity in Cambodia by helping the older adults in the community to improve their functional mobility and coached athletes at Imperial College London to improve their performance. He has also been the lead Strength and Conditioning coach for Benchmark Gymnastics and for the Youth Tennis academy at Gosling Sports Park, where he designed his own programmes and sessions. His work with athletes was recognised by the Empower team in Kuwait, as he was scouted to coach Kuwait’s MMA athletes at the prestigious club.
Shayaan’s holistic and scientifically validated approach to fitness allowed him to take on a number of personal clients and he transformed their health and fitness. By ensuring that everything from his training sessions to after-care is bespoke; taking into perspective not only his clients’ physical fitness concerns but also reflecting on their emotional well-being and the social support structure that will keep them motivated in reaching their goals, he is able to offer the complete package of personalised training and you will not be disappointed.
