Hi I'm Neil Mehrtens, founder of Ethos. I live and work in Devon.

I live in Babbacombe, Torquay with my family, my wife and two boys aged 4 and 2.

I have a lifelong passion for fitness and over 15 year's experience in commercial gyms, private corporate clientele and Royal Marines Commando Training. Add to this a wealth of nutritional knowledge and a passion for improving your lifestyle, I make sure you are well and truly looked after.

I am also a keen national level Powerlifter for GBPF (Great British Power Lifting) and have competed at national level. I also enjoy road cycling the hills of Devon.

My goal is to motivate you to achieve a sustainable new lifestyle (a whole new ETHOS) of exercise underpinned by a healthy diet, so that eventually you will not need my help and can continue progressing on your own.

Following five years as a Personal Trainer in a local gym, I spent ten years in HM Royal Marines, completing two tours of Afghanistan and one of both Iraq and Somalia. An injury sustained in Afghanistan led to my eventual medical discharge and extensive physical rehab, an experience which inspired me to start my own Personal Training business.

''Too often I see people focusing solely on physical training. Health and fitness is not only about exercise''

I can offer you some great advice to make you not only physically stronger but mentally stronger, with proper nutrition, diet and lifestyle advice.

Covid - 19 has brought a unique opportunity to offer safe virtual PT. Many benefits can be had from a real time trainer, no skipping the video or doing just a half of it. Accountability and consistency is key for positive change.

One of the key fundamentals is that intelligent exercise prescription and correct form is always used, and I bring this ETHOS to every one of my clients.

Approachable and non-judgmental Personal Training experiences to people serious about improving their health and bodies.

Whether you are preparing for a marathon, want to make a body transformation or just looking to shape up for your wedding day, ETHOS will guide you all the way through.
