BNAthlete Coach Angel Fernandez

Angel Fernandez

HEAD PERFORMANCE COACH

Right then, so writing about myself...not my strongest skill but I will give it ago.

I am a very friendly, happy enthusiastic person and am passionate about sport, health, fitness and helping others. I have a long history in sport starting back in Spain where I was a successful rower and sparring partner for the Spanish super middleweight champion boxer.

I have lived and worked in a number of places in Spain and Lanzarote before moving to the UK where I continued with boxing becoming the Southern Counties champion with an undefeated record and a chance to turn professional. However I chose to focus on being a personal trainer instead working up to managing a gym in Brooklands.

My passion is for training people the correct way, for not cutting corners and for my clients results. I invest a lot into every single client and want them to experience amazing results and learn to understand proper training.

My area of real passion is strength and power.

BNAthlete Coach Alex Stott

HEAD PERFORMANCE COACH

So a bit about me then. Well I like to think I am fairly laid back and like to enjoy life, have a laugh and obviously enjoy my health and training. I have competed in a huge number of sports, many to a decent level which is probably where the passion for health and performance came from.

I have been incredibly fortunate to have worked with top level athletes in a range of sports. But I have been ever more privileged in that this has taken me all over the world and allowed me to see and experience cultures from all corners of the globe.

The work with athletes, my sporting background and studies have shaped how I coach. No matter who I am with I place a strong focus on the quality of coaching I provide, blending cutting edge sport science with elite athletic preparation methods, yet implementing them to suit the demands of each clients individual circumstances and lifestyle.

What is my area of specialty? Strength, Power and elite performance.
