Toby Garbett is an Olympian and two-time World Champion
Hello and thank you for looking at my website, I look forward to helping you achieve your goals. I am an Olympian and two-time World Champion rower, an experienced Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer and enjoy providing leading edge fitness training to private clients. I first represented Great Britain in 1997 aged 19 and competed in 5 World Championships and attended 2 Olympic Games. I have now swopped rowing for triathlon, gained my second GB vest, becoming National AG Champion in 2012 & 2013 and 6th at the World Triathlon Championships in Hyde Park.
I like to think that my approach to fitness and well being is unique and this has been developed through my own experiences as an Olympic athlete. With access to some of the world’s leading coaches, physiotherapists, nutritionists and sport psychologists, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and understanding about what it takes to succeed. I bring my indepth understanding of focus, motivation and self belief into my work with clients and can help them achieve their goals, whether they are complete beginners, returning to fitness after a break or competing for competition.
Sport at a world class level is always evolving and athletes are continually becoming stronger and faster. This is achieved not only by hard work but by always being on the cutting edge of development in sport whether it be nutrition, physiology, psychology or general technical advances. In elite sport, the margins between success and failure/winning and losing are slight and I have developed the mindset required to sustain performance at this level. During my international rowing career, I experienced illness, injury and disappointment which tested my motivation to the fullest. Bouncing back from these setbacks gave me renewed energy and determination which I bring into my work as a Personal Trainer, pilates instructor and Level 2 Triathlon Coach.
