Toby Garbett

Toby Garbett is an Olympian and two time World Champion rower.  His unique approach to fitness and wellbeing has been developed through his own experiences as an Olympic athlete.  Toby is a highly experienced fitness consultant and pilates instructor, providing leading edge fitness training to corporate and private clients.   He first represented Great Britain in 1997 aged 19 and went on to compete in 5 World Championships and attend two Olympic Games. During his long international rowing career, he experienced illness, injury and disappointment which tested his motivation to the fullest. Bouncing back from these setbacks gave him renewed energy and determination which he now brings into his work as a personal trainer.  His own belief is that if you have determination you can succeed.

As an Olympian, he has access to some of the world’s leading coaches, physiotherapists, nutritionists and sport psychologists; he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and understanding about what it takes to succeed.  He brings his in depth understanding of focus, motivation and self belief into his work with clients and can help them achieve their goals whether they are complete beginners, returning to fitness after a break or injury or competing for competition.

Toby is a certified Stott Pilates specialist, not only for individuals but also for schools, teaching good posture and body awareness and for companies in promoting general health and fitness.  He has a special interest in workplace ergonomics and well-being and is available to give presentations as well as practical demonstrations in this often over-looked area of corporate life.
