Andy Bavister

St Austell Leisure Centre


I am a fully qualified Personal Trainer with a drive and desire to help everyone achieve their individual health and wellbeing goals, regardless of their physical abilities or levels of fitness. My philosophy is that fitness is predominantly about feeling good where looking good is just the by-product of a healthy and active mindset and lifestyle. This is why I enjoy working with everyone on an individual basis to provide a holistic and innovative approach to your health journey. 

Prior to becoming a Personal Trainer, I was a paramedic which I believe provides me an advantage and insight to this industry as I understand the body’s anatomy and therefore pathways to improve an individual’s physical capabilities. Having also worked extensively with those rehabilitating from injury I can work within everyone’s abilities and provide a personalised approach. 

I love to get to know my clients and have a passion to share my knowledge with them. I will tailor sessions, offer structured advice and of course have lots of fun along the way! 

As you can imagine I love sport and fitness and this has shaped and influenced my life significantly. So much so that I spent 12 years in Europe and across the world as a snowboarding instructor and moved to Cornwall to spending most days windsurfing and surfing the amazing Cornish coast. Set in this wonderful county there are so many opportunities to improve your health, let me be one of them.

Reviews left before star rating

"I  looked forward to my PT sessions, I was not a ‘Gym Type’ but Andy has made the sessions challenging but fun. He is professional but friendly, knowledgable but relays details and facts in an easy understandable way. I would not have made progress or continued with out his person centred attitude and crazy commitment to make others healthy. Thank you  Andy."  Mandy Wells


“Andy, I cannot thank you enough for encouragement and motivation, you are an absolutely wonderful PT. I am now so much more confident, fit and healthy and you have given me the determination to carry on improving my fitness and who knows maybe one day I may have muscles that you can actually see. I will miss you, Cornwall is very lucky to have you and we hope you enjoy your new life by the sea”  Linda and Oliva


“So sorry to see you go! Your spin classes were simply ‘The Best’!! Very best wishes for the future”  Brenda and David
