This is Alex Montgomery Health & Lifestyle, a bespoke personal training service for those wishing to make a lifestyle change in the Exeter region.
I help lots of individuals to improve their health and lives through tailored exercise training. With every client I take on, we agree various goals and expectations and build our strategy around what’s best to achieve those goals.
My clients come with a large variety of goals including weight management, increasing strength, increasing muscle mass, improved flexibility, improved endurance, toning, training for an event or sport and exercise for health problems.
I'm exercise referral qualified meaning i am able to work with more complex populations. People which may suffer from certain health problems.
Alongside my personal training qualifications I have attained a BSc (hons) degree in Sport & Exercise Science at Cardiff Metropolitan University, completing a dissertation project around the effects of traumatic lower limb injury on unilateral bilateral tasks.
Continuing my studies I'm currently in the process of completing an MSc (pre-registration) in Physiotherapy at the University of Plymouth.
I believe we never stop learning as individuals and I for one am always willing to go that extra mile to continue to develop my knowledge within the health and fitness industry.

How It Started
My journey came about from an increasing curiosity with how the body works. From there I learned to apply this knowledge to myself to benefit my sporting performance, health and wellness as best I could. I continue to reach new levels of sporting performance despite not achieving the elite level within my sport.
I started Alex Montgomery Health & Lifestyle in 2018 not long after graduating from university. I've always had a passion for health and fitness Having worked in a fitness environment as part of my degree and seeing the impact my work could have. This changed how I approached exercise, I was hooked and started reading more research articles in order to develop my methods. I soon looked to complete my personal training qualifications so that I could work with more people.
Having achieved small success with friends I was set on making a difference within the local community of Exeter, this is where I joined Westbank. Westbank provided Individual gym-based group programmes for those with medical conditions or injuries with the aim of improving health and independence to their lives. Spending time at Westabank allowed me to develop a specialist skillset allowing me to better tailor exercise plans taking into account a vast variety of medical conditions including hypertension, COPD, obestity, osteoporosis, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lower back pain, depression and anxiety.
As time has gone on and my services have grown, so have my clients. Today, Alex Montgomery Health & Lifestyle help ambitious individuals of all ages and fitness needs.
It’s been quite a ride, but it's never done. Nothing beats the feeling of seeing clients grow and knowing I've been a big part in achieving that.
My Vision & Values
I've helped my first ever client reduce their bodyweight from borderline obese to a healthy weight. This changed their life and i've been hooked achieving that sort of impact. The buzz I get from seeing a client’s reaction to smashing their milestones is a feeling like no other. Personal training is my passion and focus because I've seen what it can do for people and their lives.
That’s why it’s my goal to be one of the most established personal trainers in Exeter.
My values are that I want to make a difference to the local community in order to promote and improve health and wellbeing of the population. I feel I act with compassion and integrity. I respect and value every individual equally in order to improve their health and wellbeing. I am always seeking to learn and improve myself.
