My name is Leon Coupe, and I am a full-time personal trainer in Northampton.
I developed a passion for health, fitness, and exercise at a young age, beginning as an aspiring footballer. Later I explored other avenues of fitness and joined my first gym, and began weight lifting. I also started my sports diploma to work in the fitness industry. I retained my love for playing football but gained an increasing focus on gym-based exercise.
In July 2011, I completed my diploma and decided to aim for my personal training qualifications to start my own coaching business.
I completed my level 3 personal training in May 2012 and was fortunate to begin coaching in a brand-new gym in August, PureGym Northampton Central. I have continued doing my one-to-one sessions there to the present day.
During this time, I have worked with hundreds of clients, building up an impressive portfolio of success stories. Due to my increasing portfolio, I have extended my reach online, ensuring that my exercise and nutrition methods are available to benefit people globally.
In July 2022, I competed in my first Men’s Physique competition and made it into the PCA British Finals on October 15th 2022. I have documented my journey to the stage on my blog.
