The 25-year-old fitness guru says he is different from other trainers as he really cares about what he is doing.

“I’d been working out for so many years that it became a passion. I was in the gym and helping people, giving advice so becoming a personal trainer was a natural progression.

“My big thing is that I take it personally. I really want to see my clients get the results they want.

“If they’re paying me then I’ve made a commitment to them to get them to where they want to be.”

The Bucks Beefiest competition is a calendar raising money for Oxfordshire charity Helen and Douglas House Children’s Hospice.

Leon has made it through to the last 12 and will appear in the final copy which is launched on Saturday.

“The winner hasn’t been announced yet. Of course I’m hoping I won it. It’s going to a good cause.”

A fully-qualified fitness instructor and personal trainer, Leon offers an online and hands-on service using the great facilities at Thame Leisure Centre, which is owned by Nexus Gyms.
