Aaron KitcherPersonal Trainer
I am a qualified BSc(Hons) Nurse, working at Mater Dei Hospital as a Cardiac Intensive Care Nurse. In addition, I act as a weight management facilitator helping coach, motivate and advice people dealing with weight issues. I’m also professionally active in Cardiac Rehabilitation, sharing knowledge and advice on dietary modification for a better, healthier lifestyle.
Before joining the Cynergi team, I underwent training affiliated with the UK-based examination group OCR, successfully achieving Level 2 Gym instructing and Level 3 Personal Training certification. My special interests are weight management and weight training. As part of my continuous professional development, I am currently undertaking training towards my qualification to teach indoor cycling.
At the moment I am undertaking a masters Degree, specialising in Exercise and Nutrition Science, at the University of Chester in the United Kingdom. I am to use the knowledge I gain from these studies to better understand the needs of my clients, and help them achieve their goals in a more holistic and professional manner.
Bea TotokPersonal Trainer
Sport has always played a key role in my life and I have always enjoyed engaging in physical activity. I have been training intensively in many areas of sport and it has shown me the benefits of fitness. After experiencing many sports, my drive for more information on how to improve the body, mind and performance led me from primary school teaching to fitness instructing. This combination, of being passionate about teaching and having a keen interest in fitness, became the foundation and inspiration of my new career.
As a personal trainer I use my varied fitness background and qualifications to provide professional fitness programmes. I have considerable experience with clients who want to lose weight and tone up and I am competent in pre and postnatal fitness.
I began my fitness career in the early 90s when fitness in Malta was booming, obtaining my RSA (Royal Society of Arts) UK qualification in exercise to music.
I started freelancing at various clubs in Malta, gaining experience and regularly attending conventions in Europe, subsequently qualifying to teach in all areas of studio fitness including indoor cycling, body conditioning, step, hi/lo aerobics, Reebok core training, flexible strength, stability ball training and BOSU.
In 2006, I successfully graduated from the University of Malta with a Diploma in Sports & Leisure Studies and began looking into the possibility of offering courses in exercise to music to local students. Affiliated with OCR (Oxford, Cambridge and Royal Society of Arts), a registered awarding body within the fitness industry, I directed my first course in exercise to much in 2008, and continued my own education – obtaining my OCR certification in Advanced Gym Instruction & Personal Training (Level 3).
Keith Bartolo ParnisPersonal Trainer
My interest in fitness and sports started at a very young age, my favourite being tennis. At the age of 16, I started my education in the fitness industry. I began freelancing at different clubs in Malta, gaining experience along the way. I also worked at KMS as a Fitness Coach for kids ages 3-7 years, coaching them and teaching them the physical components of fitness. I also am a tennis coach for children under 9 years of age.
I have obtained MCAST Level 2 BTEC Fitness Diploma in Sport (Exercise and Fitness) and MCAST BTEC Level 3 Extended in Sport (Development, Coaching and Fitness). I am also qualified as a Fitness instructor (OCR Level 2) and a personal trained Active IQ Level 3. My recent qualification is as a TRX suspension and rip trainer.
My aim is to help individuals in general and guide them to achieve their personal goals.
Sue GrechPersonal Trainer
My physical fitness stems from a dance background, which has given me a great sense of discipline and an attitude of ‘mind over matter’: something which translates into every aspect of my life. I gained my gym/experience to music instructor qualifications a few years ago, later stepping up to become a qualified personal trainer. This carer choice has fuelled my passion to inspire, motivate and teach others about something that will impact their lives in a very positive way.
Whilst promoting safe and effective exercise (through appropriate client screening, consultation and evaluation) in an effort to improve levels of fitness and maintain enhanced health and wellbeing, I am committed to continuously updating my knowledge and education in this industry in order to provide my client with challenging workouts enabling them to achieve their goals through tailor-made programmes.
The philosophy I preach is to love yourself enough to commit to a lifestyle change and to always be true to your wellbeing. I look forward to take you on that journey!
Vivien Horvath Fitness Professional
I grew up playing sports my entire life. I started kick-boxing when I was just 8 years old and I quickly fell in love with it. Kickboxing perfectly challenges my mind and body. Therefore my first sport related qualification was a kickboxing trainer certification. I then obtained a Diploma in Gym Instructing and Advanced Personal Training, including Kettlebell Training.
I strongly believe that introducing sport and a healthy lifestyle into people’s lives can help them increase their quality of life, teach them to focus and work hard to reach their goals.
During my training I like to adopt Functional training methods to reflect movements found in daily life and then train the muscles in a similar manner. I like to pay attention to all key areas equally, developing speed, power, balance, reaction time and agility.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. I am here to help you become the fittest person you can be.
