“I started training with Maz over 2yrs ago and I was a 28yr old and 14st. I was fat and unhappy. With his expert help and guidance I am now 31 and 10st 6lb with just 6lb to go before I get married in August. I feel healthy, toned and happy. I cannot recommend Maz enough. He has kept me motivated through the hard times and now I look forward to my sessions. Anyone thinking about having him as your PT just do it – I did and its changed my life!!”

“Keeping Fit

I joined Hollyoaks in early February, which lets face it, is a dreadful month. It’s cold, it’s dark and as well as looking pasty, we’re still trying to lose the excess weight from the excesses of Christmas and New Year. However, in the dressing rooms it was a very different story. My fellow cast members were glowing with health – I couldn’t turn around without seeing chiselled torsos, washboard stomachs and rippling biceps. And that was just the girls. So what was their secret? It comes in the form of Personal Trainer and Nutritionist Maz Ajtar who runs MazFresh Personal Training in Liverpool. As well as training an array of celebs to get them red carpet ready, the testimonials on his website from his clients made me really keen to find out more. I’ve had personal trainers in the past but quickly lost motivation and I can honestly say I hate the gym. But, determined to get myself toned up for Summer, I’ve just started training with Maz and it’s been a revelation. I’m actually enjoying it! My workouts are always varied and his nutritional advice has been really useful. I may never be up for Sexiest Male at the Soap Awards (they’ve banned the category now anyway apparently) but with any luck, I’ll not feel like such a bloater when I’m sat on the beach this summer! Watch this space… For more details about Maz follow him on twitter @MazFreshPT.”

Here is a video of me using the body suit and pads on my client Stephanie Davis. The pads are great to relieve stress and are a good form of cardio. Great for the obliques and arms too.

Maz’s five steps to a better workout

Category : BLOG POST

          1-  “70% diet, 30% exercise”

This short and memorable phrase is a key tip that should be treated like a religion when it comes to your workout regime. It’s okay doing a ten mile run followed by bench pressing 70kg weights for half an hour, but if you get home from the gym and all you want to do is cook that 5000 calorie microwave meal and crawl into bed then all of your hard work is being reversed. It’s important to maintain a balanced diet and always remember that it’s much better to eat small regular meals than to just overload on oversized meals at less frequent points.


          2-  “Know what you want and when you want it.”

It’s important to know exactly what you want out of your workouts and when you want them. Don’t expect to leave the gym with a six pack after one workout. Setting achievable goals at the beginning of every workout will help you feel more accomplished. Studies have shown that you’re 72% more likely to give up workouts all together if you have set unrealistic goals and yet still feel disappointed when you don’t achieve them straight away. Remember, slow and steady wins the race. Set yourself smart goals!

S – Specific
M – Measurable
A – Attainable
R – Realistic
T – Time bound


          3-  “Get your beauty sleep.”

You need ideally a minimum of 8 hours sleep per night to allow your muscles to recover and grow after a workout. If your workout’s have been challenging enough then you will find it easy to sleep through a full night.


          4- “Rise and shine it’s cardio time!”

“Fasted cardio” is very effective and nearly always successful.  This is doing cardio on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning. It will get your day off to a successful start and increases metabolic rates and fat burn.


          5- 50/50 workouts”

Doing a cardio workout and strength workout in the same session can often reverse each other. Doing vigorous cardio increases stress hormones often counteracting muscle growth.
