January 2017 – July 2017
Progress pic from my guy Ben. He’s got a very strong work ethic, always shows up when he’s supposed to, and realises that the basics are what brings results. No fad bullshit or 3 hour workouts. Just heavy lifting, some pump work, and sprinting. Hopefully the next pic will be even better.
Previously a high level karate competitor in Italy, Federico is training for MMA and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu specifically. We’ve been working on strength and conditioning to prepare him for his future MMA career.
Great six month progress from my client. He came in with the goal of losing weight, feeling healthier, and getting back to doing what he loves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. After stopping Jiu Jitsu for 6+ years, he has finally returned to the mat!
I have been working with decorated Muay Thai world champion Greg Wootton since January 2016. Please see the interview we did together here.
November 2016 –
Highly skilled amateur boxer and current Southern area middleweight champion Obi has been training with me since 2016 to support his push for national honours and a future professional career.
Raph and I have worked together for about a year and a half, and the picture above is taken on the night of his first semi-professional boxing bout. I helped him out with fitness work to make sure he was in top shape come fight night.
September 2016 – November 2016
Aidan and I have been training for about 6 months at the time of writing. We started off with mostly traditional weight training, but despite making some good strength gains, he still had a little fat to lose around the midsection. We needed something bigger to really fire him up and take the results to the next level.
With one month to go, we signed up for the Spartan Sprint and began very intense group sessions which were always high energy and fun. He was always training hard but once the race was locked in, he went up a gear with the effort he was putting in (both in the gym and nutrition wise).
We trained in the gym, in the park, ran up hills – we mixed up the training and hit it hard every time.
Aidan ended up losing 5% body fat, improved his overall fitness, and smashed most of the obstacles on the course (having never done most of them before).
August 2016 – October 2016 (but has been training with me for longer than that)
Here’s Alba after 5 months of training:

“Mustafa has helped me see a difference in my body. Before the way I was training left me with no results. I made so much progress in my first 12 weeks with Mustafa. Seeing the changes only motivated me more. I felt like every session I made a personal best and was constantly improving. I felt so much stronger and was able to do things I never thought I could do!
Before training with Mustafa I was going to the gym for about a year and a half prior. However I was just doing exercises like running and crunches and not a lot of weights. I think I made more progress with just 3 weeks of training with Mustafa than I did in that year and a half!!”

“I was fat, very fat and I lost a lot of weight (6 stone in fact) but I got to point where I didn’t know how to make any further impact, and I needed to. I didn’t have a plan.
I had been thinking about a personal trainer for some time but kept talking myself out of it -‘I knew what I was doing’ (I didn’t), ‘I couldn’t afford the money’ (but I would happily spend £35 on a random night out!).
In April 2015 I bit the bullet and found Mustafa! What a great find that was, he’s been instrumental in improving my fitness, improving my strength, and making me love the gym!
Before I had no plan, now I’ve a focus and I see improvements almost every session, I can lift more, I’m stronger and my body is leaner and more toned! I really never thought I could achieve what I’ve done and whilst I know I’ve done all the hard work, it’s been the planning and effort from my personal training sessions with Mustafa which has been the key to my success!
You cannot afford not to give personal training a go. Iin fact I wish everyone could have had the experience I’ve recently had – hard work equals results, but having someone to put you on that path is priceless!
I would recommend Mustafa and his work to anyone he’s a pleasure to work with and makes you believe you can do it – and you can!”
“You have been great to work with Mustafa, you have changed my outlook on the most effective way to get to where I want to be and in these 12 weeks I can safely say that I am fitter, stronger and generally feeling great and motivated to work harder back in New Zealand.
Its also been great for me to see you grow in your role as a PT and think you will do very well and clients will be lucky to have you!”
