Hi there, I am Neil-Olivier MacSween.
Here’s some information about me and some of the things I like doing. So you can understand my personal passion and ideas behind my workout programmes. Plus my motivation on flexibility fitness.
I grew up and lived for many years in France, I have been living in Bristol since 2005. I love living in a vibrant city that has so much going for it.
What I like to discover in my clients, is their ambition and drive. I am very much a people person. We are all unique and different in our own ways. So I look for the positive aspects in people, understanding them also is important. If they have ambitions, goals, or even fears. I want to try to help them with their chosen focus. Anything is possible!
I thrive on being busy and as active as possible. My biggest passion lies with understanding and communicating with people from different walks of life.
I have been practicing martial arts for many years. The main reason why I continue to do so, is because I enjoy pushing my body hard and working my mind at the same time. They have many benefits that I go for: strength and control, following a code of conduct and learning to show respect & improving overall fitness. Also practical, if required, is the added security of self-defence …
I am constantly looking to improve my knowledge and expertise. For many years I have practiced Judo [1st.Dan black belt] and Ju-Jitsu, and I’m currently learning more about Kung Fu and Kickboxing. Finally I love taking part in other activities such as cycling, running, squash, scuba diving [PADI open water diver], paintballing, snowboarding and more conventional sports.

Founder of the ” PRO Flex classes “. At first this class was brought up to fill a missing part of physical fitness: Flexibility fitness. It still fills this gap in the spectrum of all classes. Despite being unique, this class incorporates many elements. Which are:
Mixed ages & flexibility levels. A very specific order & choice of stretches for a realistic result. Weekly progression of the same stretches [can include variations to a stretch]. Plus, introducing variety with different stretches weekly. Always stretching every muscles of the body. Balancing-out the stretches intensity on opposing sides. The list doesn’t end here, expl: all stretches performed, are to be with minimum physical effort. The use of a good but thorough posture …
In every session, I aim to make each moment unique and enjoyable for my clients: an area to clear their mind. My main priority is technique quality. Making certain that the clients exercise safely, but fully within their own capabilities.
Along side feeling great, yet also a realistic sense of achievement.
Try out a healthier body & lifestyle that fits you!
