Hi, my name is Lee Clay and I am a Personal Trainer from Gateshead.
During my time going through school I was always interested in competing and enjoying different sporting activities – football, running, cycling, swimming and anything else in between that kept me active. Over those short years, my focus turned more towards football where I progressed through youth leagues, onto the county team, then from there I played for Newcastle United academy for 2 years. At the age of 16/17 I was released by Newcastle and shortly after I moved onto Gateshead College, where I started a 2-year course in Sport Performance and represented the football team.
As I was completing my College studies, I found this to be the biggest turning point for me. Although I was still enthusiastic about my football training during the first year, by the second I pretty much lost all interest in it. As a student I would go to the gym in my lunch break in small groups or on my own, either way I would always make sure I got myself in to train regardless. Back then I didn’t really have an end goal in mind, however this is where my commitment to fitness started to unveil itself.
Once I had completed my sport performance studies, I wanted to branch out into a fitness role, where I could express my passion and help others first hand. This is when I knew I wanted to become a Personal Trainer, so I looked at various courses and enrolled with ‘Fit Training’ in Eldon leisure, Newcastle. Shortly after qualifying as a REPs Level 3 Personal Trainer, I started to pursue my career at Gateshead Pure Gym.
This is where I started to become heavily involved in Bodybuilding and Strength & Conditioning. After my studies, some thinking time and countless hours of my own research I then began to compliment the work ethic I was putting in on the gym floor with sound nutrition. Over the 3 years I worked within Pure Gym, I instructed multiple classes that were popular amongst members, this enabled me to expand my client base and build on my reputation and experience.
In 2017 I moved to Aurora Athletic in Newcastle, which was a semi-private gym located just outside Newcastle City Centre where I worked from for 5 months with new and existing clients. Due to the unit being taking over by a new company I decided to start free-lancing out of other gyms. I’m currently working from Gateshead International Stadium and 3D Health & Fitness – Cardinal Hume. All clients recieve free access to both gym sites during PT sessions once any of the block booking options or packages have been purchased.
