I was always extremely active when I was younger, participating in sports such as boxing, rugby and football.
However, at 15 I had both legs surgically broken, parts of my own bone replaced with ‘fake’ bone and then pinned and plated together. Immediately following the operation, I was in a wheelchair for 8 weeks and unable to walk.
Once I’d endured the 8 weeks and was given the all clear to start walking again I realised just how much muscle and strength I’d lost all over my body. My clothes hung off me, I was walking like Bambi and I was miserable.
I decided to start reading about the fastest ways of growing muscle tissue, covering all facets of training, nutrition and supplementation. I was hooked!
Learning about how certain amino acids can trigger specific processes in the body, how placing carbohydrates at different times of the day would lead to the body to utilising them differently – I couldn’t get enough of it!
Fast forward to now and I’ve worked and consulted with many top coaches in the industry. These include supplement formulators and PhD’s of nutrition, so it’s safe to say I’ve learnt a tonne consulting with these. I’ve worked in small intimate gyms, large Olympic-standard gyms and most recently one of the most world renowned exclusive personal training companies (delivering seminars on behalf of them in UK & Asia, and holding Senior Trainer status).
I believe what gives me an edge over other trainers within the industry, is that not only do I continually read textbooks, pay for Skype consults and attend seminars to further my education, but I practice what I preach.
I know what it’s like to have those food cravings, I know what it’s like when the scale isn’t going in the right direction. When things aren’t going to plan (we’re dealing with the human body after-all) I’m able to draw upon my personal experiences to make the changes needed to steer things back on track and still get that jaw-dropping transformation within the planned timeframe.
Thanks to all of the above, I’ve honed my skillset to be able to assess client body types and personalities very quickly – allowing me to fast track my clients to the results they both seek and deserve.

He specialises in transforming the bodies of City executives, CEOs, actors, physique athletes and regular people who want to be in the best shape of their lives. Akash has written for T-Nation, Elite FTS, Flex Magazine, Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health, MensXP, the Square Mile, Muscle Monsters and Ultimate Performance.

My own journey in health and fitness began as a skinny fat 17 year old weighing 58kg, who first stepped into the gym with his friends in the hope of filling out his t-shirt and building more confidence. This challenge sparked something inside that led me to abandon my initial pursuit of a career in law, and focus entirely on becoming the best possible personal trainer.
Over the years, I became obsessed with learning how to build muscle (gaining 30 kilos in the process!), gain strength and lose body fat.
I attended countless seminars, hired coaches and mentors, read 100s of books and spent hours and hours in the gym with clients and myself in search of what works and what doesn’t.
This learning process was solidified with four years spent working as a senior personal trainer, mentor and writer for Ultimate Performance. During this time I also delivered body composition seminars to other personal trainers in London, Manchester and Hong Kong, as well as placing top two (out of 125) in the company in both 2015 and 2016 for the most transformations.
I’ve always been of the belief that if you want to take your clients to the extreme, you need to know what the extreme is yourself.
Which is why I love competing in bodybuilding, where you’re pushing your body to the extremes of body composition. Whether it be fat loss or muscle growth.
I used to be like many of you, paralysed by the information overload that’s constant in the fitness industry. For years I made zero progress. If you ask any of my closest friends, they’ll tell you all the fads I’ve tried and all the hours of overthinking I’ve subjected myself to over the years.
This is one of the reasons we’ve created RNT. Our aim with RNT is to provide a one-stop place where you can learn how to maximise your results in the minimum amount of time, whilst educating you to enable long-term progression.
No more overthinking, no more confusion. We want you to learn from our mistakes and experiences. No fluff or fads. Only valuable advice that works in the real world, with normal, non-genetically gifted people, just like you and I.
Leigh Clayton is a body composition specialist based in central London, with over 7 years experience in the industry. He’s got an excellent track record of achieving outstanding transformations with a wide variety of different clientele. Busy lawyers, actors, business owners and even other personal trainers have all benefitted from Leigh’s skills in delivering a life-changing result for them. Leigh’s unique approach stems from his passion in biochemistry, where he’s been able to break down seemingly complex topics into simple terms and apply it with his clients to help take their results to the next level.
Fitness helped me develop my confidence to what it is today. As a teenager, I was overweight and depressed.
And so the feeling I got when I first had properly defined abs is something I’ll never forget. I felt amazing, happy and confident in myself for the first time.
Fitness helped me understand myself, and getting in shape allowed me to finally feel liberated.
But, I still wanted more.
So I read every magazine and book I could get my hands on and started copying all the workouts from there to try and take it to the next level.
All this experimentation and pursuit of knowledge is what led me to study Sport & Exercise Science at University. It was during this time that I really found my passion in the industry: biochemistry.
I started to obsess about learning all the different pathways in the body, and how they could be manipulated in the real world to bring results in my clients.
This learning during University, coupled with the student life, also enabled me to develop some pretty unique strategies to keep myself looking good year round, whilst still having fun.
In recent years, I’ve been fortunate to work for some of the most prestigious personal training companies in the industry. At the same time, I’ve invested thousands into my education, attending workshops and seminars across the globe.
All this has fed into creating my own unique coaching style that is now responsible for producing transformations in 100s of clients that I’ve had the opportunity to work with.
I’m a geek at heart who thrives off learning new things and digging deep into the science of the body. But nothing excites me more than achieving a life changing result for a client. That’s what I do what I do – I love it.

My journey in the health and fitness industry began as skinny 17 year old who was desperately trying to pack on muscle and build strength. I was 63kg (10 stone) and over the course of 3 years I’d trailed and experimented with just about anything and everything I had learned about training and nutrition. Fast forward 3 years and I’d gained a massive 27kg (4.2 stone) and had gotten significantly stronger in the gym.
Over the last decade I’ve spent time studying at Bath University and have attended countless seminars and courses with the leading coaches in the fitness industry. During this time I also worked at two of the leading body composition gyms in the UK, M10 Fitness and Ultimate Performance.
I’ve refined my craft and carved out a niche that specialises in spectacular body composition results. I love my profession and helping others get the most out of out of themselves.
I’ll help you achieve things you didn’t think were possible.
