Before becoming a certified Personal Trainer in 2012, Tomasz Zielinski competed in many races and championships from an early age (2000-2007). These included triathlons, duathlons and cross-country races. He achieved top three finishes in these races, winning two bronze medals in triathlon at the National Championship of Poland and one silver medal at the Polish Forces Fitness National Championships.
After leaving school at the age of 19, Tomasz decided to move out of his parent’s house and to head to London, UK. At his first job in this new country, he worked at an equestrian centre as a stable helper, putting in 60 hrs+ a week. While working at the equestrian centre, Tomasz continued training at the level of a top triathlon swimmer, getting himself noticed by poolside staff who realised his sporting potential. A few months later, Tomasz qualified as a lifeguard and secured a job at a central London leisure centre. Shortly after, being nothing but skin and bones, Tomasz joined the gym at his workplace and started to follow a proper. training program and a healthy diet. During his stint as a lifeguard, Tomasz decided to qualify as a Level 2 Gym Instructor and soon became a certified Level 3 Personal Trainer. Tomasz worked at top London gyms and swimming pools in a variety of roles: lifeguard, swimming teacher / coach, triathlon coach, Personal Trainer and Group Exercise instructor. He also runs boot camps, indoor cycling classes, triathlon conditioning programs, 20+ people circuit training classes, power-bag trainings, outdoor training, kettlebell training, TRX training and a weightlifting club with his Level 3 Strength & Conditioning qualification. Alongside these work activities, Tomasz continues his studies in nutrition, increasing further his fitness knowledge, experience and expertise.
