Andy Griffiths Online Personal Trainer
Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself; I'm an Online Personal Trainer based in the UK who specialises in fast-tracking body transformations. I help everyday busy people achieve the results they have always wanted, quicker than they ever thought possible. I do this by creating a bespoke Training and Nutrition plan based on the individual's lifestyle and fitness goals, whilst utilising proven training methodologies and providing weekly video feedback.
I come from a military background where I spent five and a half years in the Royal Welsh Infantry. I've been to places such as Afghan, Canada, Cyprus and Kenya. In the Army, I was an All Arms Physical Training Instructor (AAPTI), following completion of my course at the Army School of Physical Training. Thus, it was my job to make sure the Battalion was at peak physical fitness ready for operations. I left the Army and continued to pursue my passion for health and fitness.
I'm a business owner (Expert PT LTD) and have two beautiful children. Thus, I understand the high demands of everyday life and how hard it can be to fit healthy eating and exercise around the chaos of every day.
My mission is to help you transform both your body and mind in the quickest possible way!

Why Online Personal Training?
After years of coaching people in the military, in commercial gyms and private studios, it dawned on me that I was only able to help a small amount of people. There were only so many hours in the day, only so many clients I could work with. I found myself saying no to a lot of people who really needed my help, I simply didn't have the space to fit them in.
Eventually, I had an epiphany, I decided to take my service online! Taking my service online would give me the time I needed to help more people, to have an impact all over the UK and internationally. So, I did what anyone does when wanting to take on a new role, or simply find something out, I Googled it! What I found was both shocking and inspiring, I found that none of the Online Personal Trainers were offering the service they were promising. I wanted to really experience what was out there; so I trialled as many online trainers / coaches and nutritionists as I could find, on Google, on Instagram as well as Facebook. This wasn’t cheap! Overall I felt that there was a serious lack of support, I didn’t feel like I had a coach, I just felt like I was following a plan. A coach should make you feel at ease, make you feel that what you’re doing is correct. A coach should keep you accountable and push you through the struggles. A coach should be able to push you further than what you ever thought possible. And most importantly, a coach should make you feel like he cares!
This inspired me, I found a gap in the market, I didn’t believe there was an Online Personal Training service out there that offered enough support for most individuals to reach their goals. I felt it was my job to create one, to create a truly bespoke service. From that day my mission has been to create the highest quality Online Personal Training service the UK has to offer.
