Athletes and A-Listers get access to the best Trainers - Now you can too!

Are you ready to be expertly guided on how to train and how to eat to reach your physical potential? Hi I'm your Coach Gareth Sapstead, and in here to help you become strong and unstoppable through my high-performance Coaching system.

About me

Hi I'm Gareth, also known as The Fitness Maverick. I'm the guy that's going to get you looking, feeling and performing better than you ever have before. But i'm sure you're thinking "but yeah Gareth I've heard it all before". And yes so have I. And to put it bluntly it pisses me off! 

So just for now I want you to ignore the money hungry so-called "online trainers" and fitness influencers, and focus on what matters: YOU!

Simply ask yourself "is Gareth the professional that's going to truly help ME?"

In my over 15'000 hours of coaching people 1-2-1 in the real world, I can tell you that what matters is: 1) If we're a good Coach/Client match, and 2) If you can trust in my skills enough to be open to what i'm going to tell you. That includes putting yourself in my hands to completely transform your training and nutrition, and your body along with it.

I've been told many times that just £60 a month for working with me is way too cheap, especially when its actually me you're working with and talking to daily. But it's that cost-efficient because I truly want to make working with me accessible to all. Not just the celebrities and athletes that have paid me ££££ a month to train with me in-person.

But that also means i'm going to kick you off my program if I feel my time is being wasted. I'm never going to be a millionaire by charging just £2 a day for distance coaching, but I can make a difference in your life, just like the many others I have before you. And that's what is more valuable to me. So let's work together on this!

You'll have seen me in the most respected websites in the industry, hardcover books, and other forms of media since 2005. But first and foremost i'm a Coach.  So get in touch if you're willing and ready to take action, and BE COACHED. I look forward to it!

The Nutritionist in your pocket.

I believe that the most effective plan is one that is both nutritious, exciting and sustainable in the long-term. There is no one size fits all approach to nutrition, and that is why you will be coached through a nutrition plan that fits around your tastes and lifestyle. To accompany your plan you will also receive my very own recipe book full of tasty ideas to refuel with, along with a supplement guide to give you an extra edge (and ensure you're not wasting your money on worthless products!). With MyFitnessPal intergration I can also cleverly track how well you stick to the program and make changes as you go along.

I really hate talking about myself, but since you asked then here goes....

 I've been in the industry since 2005, where in that time i've spent well over 15'000 hours coaching clients and athletes face-to-face. From Celebrities to Pro-Athletes to CEO's to new Mums, I've done it all. 

I've just come off spending a year in Melbourne, Australia, training clients out of the famous Dohertys City Gym. I'm now based in the U.K full-time. I traded up sun and Vitamin D for friends and family. It was a tough decision.

I have Undergrad and Masters Degrees in the areas of exercise science, and am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). I've also published a few scientific research papers in my time. Basically that means i'm a fitness nerd and I really know my shit (at least more than the instagram fitness models anyway!). I like to think i've got a great combination of theory and practical expertise, but equally I still spend half of ever day trying to develop.

In between my in-person and distance Coaching practice, i'm a contributor to many of the industries best websites for trusted information. I've also written a few books, including being published by Dorling Kindersley. This is my time where I take off the Coaching sweats, and do that writers thing at Starbucks (actually not starbucks, i'm a coffee snob and don't like what they're selling, but you get the picture).

In my spare time I also make funky healthy recipes. That's because i'm a former ice cream addict and need my fix. I sometimes share my recipes on social media, but more often they're just for me. I can show you how to get your "not so guilty" high-protein fix too if you like though.

Anyway, that's me in a nutshell. If you want to talk more about coaching then great, give me a shout using one of the links on this page. If you don't then now problem, I hope we get a chance to talk one day anyway.
