About

Laura Shaw Photography

I am Andrew Shaw aka The Fitness Gentleman, Health Coach from London, England.

MY WHY

I firmly believe that by being fitter and healthier you will improve the quality and happiness of your life.

I love to motivate people to help them achieve improved health. By providing knowledge and guidance that will not only improve your health but have you looking and feeling great too.

The reason I will never stop sharing and educating is from my own experience of nearly losing my father to heart disease. Brought about by a negative lifestyle which meant he had to have life-saving heart surgery. This was very scary as I child, the possibility of losing a parent, and it was the genesis for me taking up a vocation where I could help people improve their health and fitness. Not only for themselves, but for their family too.
