YOUR CPC INSTRUCTORS

CPC is the result of a lifetime of fitness experience. Created and delivered by 3 of the UK’s leading fitness coaches: Ollie Marchon, Jenz Robinson and Aymon Ismail, the course combines personal expertise with proven success to connect, understand and influence every aspect of fitness.

Ollie Marchon

Co-Founder of the PFCA, Ollie is also the owner of one of the UK’s leading Functional Fitness brands, MARCHON: a best-in-class destination gym and innovative, online training and nutrition coaching platform.

His motivation is simple: to transform the fitness experience for consumers and coaches, redefine the industry standard and accelerate the career prospects of every fitness professional.

Having played professional rugby with England rugby 7s, he knows all too well what coaching and operating at the highest-level entails. He also has a first-class degree in sports and exercise science, and multiple strength and conditioning qualifications.

This unique skill set has enabled Ollie to build strong partnerships with leading fitness brands. He remains head of performance for the National Fitness Games and is the lead trainer of Functional Fitness for both Nike and Maximuscle.

Jenz Robinson

South-African born and bred, coach Jenz has a passion for helping people and a determination to be the best that has seen him reach a level few ever achieve.

Using the same drive and commitment that propelled him to play professional rugby in South-Africa, he opened his first gym at 25, motivated 1000s of clients to achieve their fitness goals and inspired numerous professional sportsmen to reach the highest level.

Jenz’s proven interpersonal skills make the complex simple, applicable and fulfilling for the coach and client.

His personal approach to education and development has led him to adopt a white-belt mentality. This hunger for improvement is just one of the reasons why the PFCA remains at the forefront of applied functional fitness training today.

Aymon Ismail

Aymon’s passion for coaching stems from an underwhelming entry into the fitness industry. He noticed that the standard of personal trainers just wasn’t good enough, and saw an opportunity to make a difference.

Aymon’s journey to coaching began after University. Once qualified as a Personal Trainer, he continued his development as a MARCHON client. When the team saw the effort and detail Aymon brought to everything he did, they gave him the opportunity to join the MARCHON coaching team.

Today, he is a Senior Coach and shares his expertise at the PFCA.

“I am a firm believer in the old saying, “how you do anything is how you do everything.” With a keen attention to detail and willing effort, we can all be great at everything we do.”
