#fillourtable : Dynamic Fitness

It's the last day before the winter equinox, and we have a brilliant guest here to #fillourtable at our (hypothetical) Figbar Christmas Dinner Party. The incomparable Ross Lenton from Dynamic Fitness Norwich! And he definitely brings the party wherever he goes. 

Ross has an endless supply of energy, positivity, and the most motivating playlist you'll find. He knows when to pump up the volume and when you need to turn it down a little. He is a fab listener, incredibly thoughtful, supportive, and just plain fun. We definitely need a cool guy like him here at our dinner table. 

One of the best things about Ross and his awesome personal training studio, Dynamic Fitness, is that once you start, you don't want to stop! They have running clubs, summer BBQ's (don't worry, egg and spoon races are likely to appear here!), rowing competitions, press-up challenges (he even had Chef Jaime Garbutt doing the 6 weeks to 100 press-ups!), and more. Ross is another Norwich gem born and raised. He's well-travelled, but he knew the best place to settle down was obviously our Fine City! So 10 years ago he rooted his dynamic business here (see what I did there? ;-), which is currently located on Ber Street. I know, I know, having a personal trainer in our midst may make us a little anxious- rethinking that extra helping of mashed potatoes (oh. my. goodness. I know this dinner party is hypothetical, but Jaime's mash is unbeatable- sorry, Mom), but I promise- Ross gets it. He gets good food, moderation, extravagance, and that this dinner party especially is a time to go a bit overboard. So, let's dig in, Figbar fans! We've got Ross to help whip us back into shape come January! 

Ross Lenton of Dynamic Fitness, thank you for bringing the party and coming to help #fillourtable!

A Bit About Ross: I'm a Norwich boy originally but after Uni I went to Sydney, Australia and qualified as a Personal Trainer. After some amazing results I decided to come back to Norwich in 2008 to set up Dynamic Fitness. I have had almost 10 successful years of helping clients get fitter and happier, together with running many successful Fitness Events.

Currently, I live in the Golden Triangle with my lovely new wife Sarah. My amazing Mum lives in Norwich and my 2 brothers live in Thailand and Vancouver!
