Sports Science graduate launches Project You to help get Milton Keynes fit

After seeing his business partner suffer a heart attack, 23 year old Harry Archer from Flitwick decided to kick start his career in health and fitness by retraining as a Personal Trainer. The Sport Science graduate and competitive swimmer always had an interest in fitness and nutrition but decided to take the plunge in 2014 to set up his own weight loss management company, Living Proof Synergy, aimed at helping local people to trim up and get fit.

From stopping yo yo dieting to tackling how to manage stress in a corporate environment, Harry Archer and his business partners Scott and Anne help a wide range of clients from across the region to achieve their health and fitness goals, including 40 year old Ali [Centred in Photograph below] who’s lost an incredible 59lbs.

“With Scott suffering from a heart attack, I wanted to get my personal training qualifications as you can never be sure of what the future holds. Having done much research into which company to take my Level 3 Diploma with, I settled on Premier Training International as I felt they were the best in the industry. The tutors have incredible in-depth knowledge and I have since gone onto complete a further qualification in Advanced Nutrition for Weight Management,” comments Harry.

In less than a year, the company has built up their client base substantially and now boasts an 80% retention rate. Offering monthly cycles of workshops which cater to individual needs, Harry and the Living Proof team combine the three core components of exercise, nutrition and a healthy mindset in order to change client’s habits for good.

“Setting up Living Proof last year allowed myself and my team to combine our own expert knowledge and produce Holistic Development classes. Through these individuals can begin to take accountability for their own behaviours and break the weight loss/ weight gain cycle. As well as weight loss management, our team are now looking towards expanding the business further into the corporate world and have recently developed a Corporate Wellbeing programme to help combat capacity levels and strategies on how best to tackle stress management within businesses. The tutors at Premier Training International have enabled me to boost my own skill set and allowing me to train my own clients in addition to growing Living Proof further,” added Harry.
