Allistair J Watson

Nickname: 'Elite Personal Trainer'

Changing lives...ONE client at a time...


Born in Pretoria South Africa

Sure, healthy eating and lifestyle choices play a part. But the truth is that special glow emanates from within.

It is self-pride. It is that sense of achievement, that sense of accomplishment when you look in the mirror and are awed by the results which YOU created. Genuine pride is doing your best ... when no one else is watching!

There is nothing that inspires me more than helping people achieve their goals. I love watching as the glow takes root and begins to grow. I love seeing my clients shine!

I've been involved in the Health, Fitness and Wellness Industry for several years now. I have extensive knowledge on the correct techniques and methods to ensure you reach your goals as quickly and effectively as possible. My Goals are to see You reach Your Goals!

When you make a commitment to better your physical health and appearance, you will find that the same self-discipline, focus and drive for success, will carry through into the rest of your lifestyle choices.

I firmly believe in my "Back-to-Basics Training Modules," which I have been implementing over the past couple of years through my Total Body Transformation packages, which will teach you about the fundamentals of correct techniques, execution and style of training that will allow you to further your health, fitness lifestyle choices.

If you are ready to follow the latest and hottest "TREND" then you are halfway to achieving the Brand New You!

Time: - If you are seriously committed to continuous improvement you will make the Time.
Routine: - Getting into a healthy Routine will create the habits that become your lifestyle.
Effort: - What you put in is what you get out. Make the Effort in becoming a New You!
Nutrition: - Ensure that your body has the right fuel to keep you energized throughout the day by following a well-balanced Nutritional Guideline.
Discipline: - Discipline yourself in order to maintain your Time, Routine, Effort and Nutritional intake.

Elite One-on-One Personal Training Is a multifaceted service that provides clients with The Education, Motivation, Focused Attention, Commitment and Accountability, The Passion, Achievable Goals and Dedication that everybody requires in order to maintain a healthier and prolonged life. Bottom line is...It should be a lifestyle and that's why we are here to help guide everyone on that path of Wellness.

1. The Education
Struggling with training in circles? Are you relentlessly performing arbitrary exercises with little understanding and little development, over and over again? Feel like you have been training for eternity and not achieving the results you wanted? If this sounds familiar, then you may be lacking the necessary knowledge to make a powerful difference in your workouts and daily routine. Working with an Elite Personal Trainer is the fastest and most effective way to learn the essentials of strength training, nutrition, weight management and healthy lifestyle development.

2. The Motivation
Anyone can benefit from the influence and motivation from an enthusiastic mentor; Elite Personal Trainers are mentors of Physical Fitness, Health and Nutrition. It is their purpose to help push you through your self-imposed limitations so that you can finish what you started? Strong!

3. The Focused Attention
Cutting Edge One-on-One Personal Training is...hands down...the only way to get the focused attention that you need to quickly and safely develop perfect exercise techniques in any training application with our unique Back-to-Basics training methods. And with all of the attention, you will be confident that you will be training in the most effective fat-burning intensities that are specific to you.

4. The Commitment and Accountability
Think about it...how many times have you promised yourself that you're going to workout today or my personal favorite - "I'll start on Monday?" Only to find the next day that you have, yet again, lied to yourself, and failed to get it done. Sound familiar? If your commitment to yourself is lacking, then let an Elite Personal Trainer help you! Personal Training will make you accountable by developing a relationship based on integrity, motivation, passion and a solid commitment to fulfilling your goals.

5. The Passion
Have you ever noticed how healthy people have a certain glow about them? Have you ever thought about where that glow comes from? Really thought about it?

Sure, healthy eating and lifestyle choices play a part. But the truth is that special glow emanates from within. It is self-pride. It is that sense of achievement, that sense of accomplishment when you look in the mirror and are awed by the results which YOU created. Genuine pride is doing your best ... when no one else is watching!

6. Achievable Goals
There is nothing that inspires me more than helping people achieve their goals. I love watching as the glow takes root and begins to grow. I love seeing my clients shine!

7. The Dedication
Changing lives...ONE client at a time...
