Personal Trainer/Kickboxing Instructor/Private Chef
I’m Ian Shaw, a Certified Personal Trainer, Muay Thai Kickboxing Instructor, and Private Chef.
I have been working in the Health and Fitness industry for nearly 2 decades. Being a trainer/teacher has been one of the most transformational aspects of my life, and I’m honored to have been able to help so many people find their health and transform their lives.
I was the stereotypical “fat kid” growing up. From 7-15 I was overweight, unhappy, angry at the world and myself. I hated my body, how I looked and felt, and one day I decided enough was enough and committed to making a change. In the course of 10 months, I went from 253 lbs down to 175. I know first hand what it feels like to have to make a life-changing approach towards your life. And I had had the opportunity to learn that lesson a second time in my 30’s, so I can understand what it takes to get to a weight goal and what is required to be successful.
My love of fitness, martial arts and teaching have kept me in this industry, but most of all it is knowing there is nothing more fundamentally more powerful in this world than helping others awaken to their potential and to take back control of their health.
