About Dubai PT Craig Lapsley :

In his late teens Craig's health and fitness wasn't important to him. He practiced Jui Jitsu maybe once per week because a relative owned a MMA club, apart from that he wasn't in any way truly involved in the fitness world. In fact, it would be safe to say he took his health for granted. Think coco pops for breakfast, whatever he could grab for lunch and maybe some veg with dinner on a good day.

Just before Craig turned 20 he was diagnosed with Crohns disease. Having never been the most confident person, this diagnosis took that remaining confidence away - he lost weight, became weaker and energy-less. The map to Craig's self-confidence was unreadable and he slipped into a depression. Having dropped out of University Craig quit his job. He was on 22 tablets a day and could only eat a limited number of foods.

There was a gradual change in his physical and mental health from that low point and he decided to get fit again. It was then that a friend introduced him to lifting weights and the world of bodybuilding.

This was the game changer for Craig. For the first time in his life he was getting stronger and he even started getting a few compliments on my physique.

Craig's journey into the world of health, fitness and personal training involved reading, researching, training and experimentation. Not just reading about training or nutrition but on the psychology of confidence and happiness. You could say it become an obsession. He likes to think of it as finding his passion.

It took a good number of years to get to where Craig is now. He is now completely medication and symptom free. Craig went from a skinny weakling to a strong, muscular, confident and happy person.

Craig coaches people as a personal fitness expert one to one in Dubai and online worldwide, changing peoples lives for the better through physique development. No matter your starting point you can make a massive change to your mind, body and health. It may have taken Craig a number of years to change but with the knowledge he has obtained he can transform your physique in a matter of weeks.

    Craig has been a blessing to my boys. I cannot praise him enough. My youngest suffers from a medical condition that needs physio therapy to strengthen his bones. He has been very patient and caring and motivating towards him and given him appropriate exercise to improve his endurance and overall strength. He has patiently been listening to my sons constant chatter while doing this .. this could not be an easy task .. lol .. with my two older boys he has been great. Giving them cardio and weight training appropriate to each ones capabilities. My youngest is keen on boxing and he has inspired him and motivated him. I cannot thank Craig enough for all that he has done for my 3 boys.

    Craig helped me achieve what i was looking for in a short time. Having pain in my knees, he knew which exercises to do to help build up muscles around and eliminate the pain. He’s very helpful in explaining about nutrition facts and how the body adapts and reacts to all the changes, it helped me understand more about what suits me. I highly recommend training with Craig.

    When I started training with Craig nearly 6 months back, I had set myself clear objectives to reach and I can easily say that all my objectives have been reached and even exceeded. Craig is committed to help his Clients achieving results with his dedication, hard work and excellent planning. His advise when it comes to dietary needs has been very helpful to compliment the efforts done in the training. I highly recommend Craig for anyone who is looking for a personal trainer in Dubai to start his change journey.

    I originally contacted Craig as I wanted to lose the weight I gained since moving to Dubai. However not only am I achieving this, I am also gaining muscle strength and knowledge. Knowledge on which exercises to do and why, as well as nutritional teachings. Craig has helped me to set goals and have a clear vision on how to work towards them; he has taken me from barely being able to squat, to being able to squat more than my body weight. Craig not only coaches you but teaches you too, and always goes above and beyond to provide you help even if not solely related to training.
