Francis Mathew

Hammersmith Fitness Centre


I have always loved exercise in whatever form it comes in. I spent 5 and a half years training to be a stuntman, which covered a wide variety of training. It was later on in my life that i began to properly understand the importance of having correct technique when performing exercises and it was fairly recently that i found a deep passion for helping others when people started coming to me for advice, seeing the progress that they made from my help is an amazingly rewarding feeling. I love sharing the knowledge that i have learnt over the years and help others achieve their goals and dreams.

I did crossfit for many years which is where i found my passion for calisthenics and learned correct lifting techniques.

Nothing is impossible when you put your mind to it!

I now focus mainly on body weight based exercises with kettle bells thrown in occasionally. The body is capable of doing amazing things with the right training and I love teaching myself new, tougher movements, which in turn i will pass on to any client who would like to learn them.

"I've been having personal training sessions with Francis once a week for the last few months and can honestly say that I've seen a big improvement in both my fitness and stamina levels. The sessions followed a promise to myself that I wouldn't just maintain the fitness level I was at but would find a way of improving it and Francis has been invaluable in helping me to succeed. Not only has he introduced challenging sessions (which he's always managed to convince me I can finish!) his extensive experience as a personal trainer means that he is quick to recognise and advise on how to correct and improve my technique.   For me that's helped in particular with squats and lunges as well teaching me the value of stretching properly afterwards. If you want to improve your current fitness I strongly recommend that you consult Francis."  Diane Lawson

"I began PT sessions with Francis in October 2016. Being a wheelchair user (I have MS), my expectations of what I might actually achieve were fairly conservative. From my very first session, Francis made me realise that my goal to become fit was totally achievable.  His dedication to helping people is genuine and admirable. At my first session he had already researched my condition and made a plan for the weeks ahead. In the early days I was apprehensive, but Francis put my mind to rest very quickly. He built up my confidence, and I have achieved so much in a relatively short amount of time. I am seeing results on a constant basis, and for that reason I continue to train with Francis as well as attend the gym on my own the other days. I am stronger, fitter and as Francis continues to introduce new elements to my program, he has made my goal to become fitter reality, and I can't help but be excited for the future!"

"I was very new to the gym and needed to lose weight and was looking for a PT when i met Francis. He is great fun to work with and has introduced me to a variety of new exercises which have helped me enormously  and pushes you when you need that extra push. If you want a personnel trainer Francis is your man"
