Pierre grew up naturally feeling a need and desire to exercise. He can remember at 6 years old getting up in the morning to do 20 press ups and sit ups all just because “it just felt right”. The call of fitness has always been powerful for this dedicated professional athlete who brings you years of expertise and passion in a number of disciplines.
At 11 Pierre started karate and perused this with vigour until at the ripe old age of 13 he became National Shotoka champion and a black belt 2nd Dan. Having excelled in karate Pierre discovered a new passion which was to consume his life, that passion was step. He committed many hours to perfecting his step technique and then moved into the arena of general fitness qualifying as one of the youngest teachers in the UK at just 16.
A career in Presenting blossomed from there as the shy lad of yesterday was replaced by a more confident young man, the years of athleticism have paid off, although on the site Pierre’s choreography is quite tame, he has the skill of a trained dancer and his performance step routines are absolutely staggering.
He now works regularly as an international presenter and also for gym box, fitness fx, jumpy bumpy, clickmix.com, fit fantastic, fit camps, fit pro, fitness fiesta and of course us.
- What drives Pierre?
Pierre is driven by a desire to make people feel great through his extensive knowledge of fitness. However, let us not forget that knowing fitness is one thing, inspiring others is another, Pierre’s open and charismatic style really engages with his audience. He puts this down to his “energy and love for health, fitness and music”.
- Why fitness is important to Pierre?
Without it I wouldn’t be who and where I am today. A strong body makes a strong mind.
- Pierre’s tips
* Water is the magic fluid, drink it every couple of hours!!
* Vitamin C is under rated, consume a little more than recommended because if the body doesn’t need it, it will discharge it.
* The best time to burn body fat is first thing in the morning before breakfast.
