I stick to the basics: bread and butter exercises that are proven to get you the maximum results. You need to love to squat and deadlift. If you are breathing, in my opinion, you're an athlete. Let me show you what you are capable of achieving.

WHAT Jose's CLIENTS SAY
Working with Jose on my fitness has been great. He has been nothing but encouraging and supportive of all aspects of my wellbeing not just my muscles. Our sessions are always hard work but always with an element of fun, enjoyment being so important to keep me motivated. When I think I can’t do something I am never allowed to give in. I achieve what I believe sometimes to be impossible. No shouting, no humiliation just pure encouragement and belief. My best result from working with Jose? Self-belief! The faith Jose had in me that I could achieve has given me the self-belief that I can!
He is such a knowledgeable and personable personal trainer that I trust and value his guidance to drive me forward!
I can’t recommend Jose enough!
I came to Fitness Playground twelve months ago having lost motivation and enjoyment in training. Jose has been instrumental in making training fun again (his humour and taste is top shelf stuff) and improving my strength and endurance in ways I never envisaged. Somehow, he has made me like leg day, just a little.
After 5 years training at various gyms with few different PTs I finally found my PT match 藍 ... not only he can speak the same language as me and have a similar personality he showed me what it is to really train hard and push myself to my limits, I changed my body and grew some serious muscles where I didn’t even know was possible . His training is hard, painful, but so effective that since training with him for over a year now I can see so many changes in my body. He is so knowledgeable and doesn’t complicate things when it comes to training, he uses simple techniques and compound exercises that actually work. I have the best time training with him, we laugh, we swear, we talk ... and I found in him a good friend ...
Not only is Jose a trainer, I would classify him as a therapist and endorphin dealer at it's finest, not having the motivation to push myself forward, I went through a giant transformation mentally and physically and he played a massive part in that. Doing classes with Jose will always make you feel like you belong. Many thanks.
P.S. our mutual love for Portuguese chicken is unreal.
