My name is Stuart Best and I have worked in the Health & Fitness Industry for over 20 years.

I qualified as a Personal Trainer in 1996 and since then has worked in a variety of roles including Personal Trainer, Master Trainer, General Manager and Health Club owner. And as you can see I have an extensive list of professional qualifications that include…

  • CrossFit Coach
  • Personal Trainer
  • Strength & Conditioning Coach
  • MovNat Instructor
  • Function Movement Screen Assessor
  • Fascial Stretch Therapist
  • Qualified Tutor & Assessor
 
My own training is geared towards competing as a Master CrossFit Athlete (45-49 yrs). Currently I'm training towards the 2018 season after taking 2017 off following knee surgery.
 
My personal exercise experience goes back over 30 years when I first started lifting weights and exercising to lose weight and improve my sports performance. At the time I played Rugby for my school and Wasps.
 
In addition to working as a Personal Trainer I am also a full time student. I'm currently in the second year of a four year degree studying a Masters in Osteopathy at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine. Subjects studied in the masters include human anatomy & dissection, physiology, biochemistry, nutrition, clinical dietetics, biomechanics, massage and osteopathic techniques.
