About Will Canty

Hi, I’m Will Canty. I’m a personal trainer and nutrition coach based in a private gym just a short walk from both Wanstead and Snaresbrook tube stations. While primarily training out of this studio I also offer at-home sessions within some of the surrounding areas such as Walthamstow, Leytonstone, South Woodford and Aldersbrook.

My history

I first began training at the age of 17 although, admittedly, without knowing exactly what I was doing. I made a lot of mistakes but over time, through experience, research and experimentation I started to understand a great deal more about fitness and nutrition. This thirst for understanding has continued to this day as I am always looking to expand my knowledge so that I am in the best position possible as a Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach to not only train my clients but to help educate them.

I’ll be honest though, when I began training all those years ago and for many years after that my main motivation was to develop ‘impressive muscles’ and chase down that ‘6-pack’ that everybody wants. That stuff is great, it really is. It’s nice to look good. Having said that, where’s the point in looking good if you feel exhausted from your training? Or if every time you train you’re increasing the risk of injury through faulty movement patterns?

Ultimately, our body can only take so much misuse. My philosophy on training is that we should train to preserve youth, vitality, function, health and well-being. The physical changes will follow. But let’s prioritise our bodies’ health first. Both in terms of what we fuel it with (good nutrition!) and how we use it. I know I’d like to be able to go for a 10km run for another 20 years without my knees giving out. Or to pick up a grandchild in 40 years time without my back buckling. Wouldn’t you?

My Philosophy

Of course, weight loss and muscle gain is our goal. But not at the expense of our health and well-being. This philosophy on training has ultimately lead me towards trying to learn as much as I can about nutrition and fitness so that I can coach you through becoming lean and fit while boosting your happiness, health and sense of well-being at the same time.

If you've been going to the gym regularly but you're not losing weight then you need to know about Hedonic Compensation.

In this video I discuss what it is and how you can use your understanding of it to get the results you want.

Stop talking about and counting calories.

Macronutrients and calories are the wrong variables to try to control. In this video I explain why that is.

When we try to change we, more often than not, try to do far too much too soon only to wind up falling off the wagon.

In this video I discuss this common pitfall and what you can do to avoid it.

I hope it helps 💪🏻
