Joe Ash  - Platinum Fitness

Joe Ash – Personal Trainer

I have been in the Leisure and fitness industry for 17 years. I started out as a fitness instructor and worked my way through the ranks, becoming an advanced gym instructor and then a personal trainer.

I have also had experience in management and became a Platinum Personal Trainer for David Lloyd back in 2010.

My passion for sport and fitness came from a young age and fond interest in rugby, which I continue to play and coach still. My biggest passion now (apart from training my clients of course) is my family. I have two gorgeous children who keep me on my toes.

From my many years as a trainer, I have had the pleasure of working with people of all ages, levels, and abilities, helping them lose weight, tone up, rehab, training for a specific sport and core strength. So, whatever your gym goals may be, I would love to help you.
