About Gary O’Connor
I have been involved in the health and fitness industry for approximately 30 years with extensive experience as an exercise instructor, personal trainer, gym manager and health and fitness specialist.
As well as training some of the world’s most recognised artists, musicians and celebrities I work extensively in specialised exercise prescription for the rehabilitation of medical conditions such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes and stress management.
During my career as a health and fitness manager I spearheaded the development of a community exercise referral scheme that utilised the skills of healthcare professionals and those working in exercise and fitness. As a manager I received a lifetime achievement award for the successful and continued development of health and fitness projects.
I have been Rod Stewart’s exclusive personal health and fitness specialist for the last 15 years. During that time I have been responsible for his health, wellness and physical training needs including management of any injuries, ailments and their subsequent physical therapy.
Using the latest computerised fitness assessment software, I collect data on my client’s health and fitness and use this as the backbone of bespoke training and healthcare plans. I am able to monitor my client’s blood pressure, oxygen saturation, lung function, body composition, ECG, cholesterol and blood glucose levels.
