I’m often asked how I stay fit when I refuse to step foot in a gym? The answer is, I work out via Skype with Monte Cox.

Monte has a passion for fitness and healthy living that is positively contagious. Over the past 3 years, he’s transformed me from someone who hates working out, to someone who looks forward to our weekly sessions. With a keen eye for form & posture, he motivates and guides each class to ensure that I get maximum benefit.

Also, as a personal trainer Monte has a brilliant sense of humour. You won’t notice the pain, because your workout comes with blood, sweat and plenty of tears of laughter.
