Hi, I'm Keith ''Concrete'' Symes. In 2012 I hung up my chefs jacket and made the switch to Health and Fitness, starting out as a gym instructor. Soon after learning the ropes I was allowed to start taking personal training clients and assist in the running of group fitness classes. Enjoying training many people at once I decided to launch my own indoor/outdoor classes which included boxing, circuit and cardio drills. I create programmes for my clients to change their lives and create a better version of themselves. Thanks for visiting :)
