Meet Gus Martin, newest member of the COACH LONDON team

July 2022

My journey into the health and fitness industry came after spending 9 years in the Royal Marines as a Physical Training Instructor. The transition from this role to that of a Personal Trainer (PT) seemed a natural choice.

My time in the Marines taught me many skills but what truly resonated with me were 3 key things: the virtue of hard work, teamwork is essential for any level of success and that all humans are capable of achieving incredible things if they are sufficiently motivated and surrounded by the right people.

After spending less than 6 months as a PT I realised that to make a real difference with people, I needed to further my knowledge of nutrition, eventually I decided to enrol in a Level 4 Nutritional Therapy Diploma with the Institute for Optimum Nutrition.

My clients are all professionals who are looking to get lean, healthy and strong despite living busy, stressful lives. They also recognise that hiring a professional to guide them in their fitness journey is an investment that continues to pays dividends.


Where does your passion for health and fitness come from?

My mum and my internal desire to test my physical and mental capabilities.


What do you love most about working with your clients?

The relationships that we cultivate and the impact I have on their lives.


What areas do you specialise in?

I work with the general population and specialise in helping busy stressed professionals become strong, healthy and lean.


Were there any challenges you had to overcome when you first started training?

I was 19 when I first got into exercise. Before then, I played sports. I was 25kg overweight and not having the best time. Facing the reality of having to lose this weight was tough and quite overwhelming at the time. Thankfully I had a coach who guided me through the whole process and I have never looked back.


What’s your favourite thing to do in the gym and why?

I love lifting heavy things (barbells etc) and “putting myself to the sword” on the rower, skierg or assault bike. To me, there is no better feeling than being strong and fit. I love it!


What are your personal fitness goals?

Remain capable of what I was able to do in my 20s. So far I am doing ok.


How does training in the gym help you mentally?

I would be a wreck and very grumpy if I didn’t train regularly. It is my meditation.


What are the top 3 questions you get from clients when you first start working together?

1. How many times do I need to train each week? The answer is 3 x 45+ mins on average

2. How do I lose fat around my middle? Sleep well, increase your low-level movement (steps) and make sure your energy intake is in accordance with your output.

3. How can I get rid of this niggle/pain in my……


Are there any fitness or nutrition myths that you’d like to debunk?

Carbohydrates are not the enemy. You need them to fuel your training.


What’s the best bit of advice you could give to someone who wants to get fit and healthy but is struggling to get started?

Almost everyone has been in your shoes (I certainly have). Seek help from a professional or a friend who has the fitness, body and health you desire. They can help guide you through the process so you don’t make the mistakes many make and lose motivation.


If you had to choose only one piece of gym equipment to take with you to a desert island what would it be?

The rower.


What music do you like to listen to when you train?

I like to listen to house music.
