Meet the trainer - Peter Azzopardi
I’m Peter Azzopardi, Personal Trainer and owner of PMA Personal Training. I’ve worked in the fitness industry for over 18 1/2 years.
Between 2007 and 2015, I was an NHS Physiotherapy Assistant, responsible of running group sessions and 1:1 for back pain, weight loss, osteoarthritis and sports injuries.
In March 2015, I became fully self employed. This has enabled me to devote myself to working as an in home personal trainer in Norfolk and Suffolk.
In addition, for 13 years I’ve been a Cardiac Rehabilitation Personal Trainer in Bury St Edmunds for Upbeat Heart Support.I have also run a Kettlebell group class in Thetford for the past 4 1/2 years.
In August 2019, my fascination in nutrition and the fact that 80% of weight loss is diet related, has lead me to begin studying a Post Graduate Diploma in Sport and Exercise Nutrition.
This is a 12 month, part time programme with the IOPN and is accredited by the British Dietetic Association and can be topped up to a full Master’s Degree.
Since 2001, I’ve helped thousands of clients just like you, to overcome and cope with limiting beliefs and medical conditions and improve their quality of life through physical activity.
Whatever your fitness goals, I’m well equipped to assess your situation and create a lifestyle plan that will allow you to see results.
