This month we’re taking the opportunity to introduce you to one of West Byfleet’s newest team members, Emmanuel.
He has us day dreaming of Mauritius and contemplating dinner with Gordon Ramsay (it takes a brave person to want to cook for him!)
Who is your hero/who do you look up to?
My hero is, and always will be, my partner. She has helped me come out of my shell and inspires/motivates me in many different ways. When we first went to the gym together she was lifting heavier weights than me which was quite embarrassing.
Where in the world would you most like to visit?
Both my parents are from Mauritius and moved over here before I was born. I haven’t yet been able to go and see the country for myself. I have heard that it is beautiful and I would love to see where my family is from, so this is the place I would most like to visit in the world!
What’s your favourite film and song?
My favourite film is probably ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’ as I’ve always loved cars! My favourite song is ‘Let Me Love You’ by Mario as it was the song my little girl was born to. It brings back really special memories when I listen to it!
If you could have any job in the world, which one would you choose?
If I could have any job in the world it would probably be managing a chain of gyms/studios.
What’s the best piece of advice anybody has given you?
The best piece of advice I have been given is that it doesn’t matter where you have come from. It is down to you to make your own future and hard work pays off so don’t give up and if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again!
If you were stranded on a desert island and you could choose three things to have, what would they be?
If I was stranded on a desert island the three things I would choose to have are: a boat (so I can get away!), my girlfriend and my daughter (so I’m not lonely!)
You’re hosting a dinner party and can invite any three people (dead or alive) who would you invite and why?
The 3 people I would invite to a dinner part if I could, would be, Gordon Ramsay (in case my food is terrible and need a back-up – plus he uses very colourful language), Will Smith (very good/funny actor and love his music), and lastly Michael McIntyre as he would make us all laugh.
What one item would you want to save if your house was on fire?
If my house was on fire I would save my phone as it has ALL of my photos/videos and memories stored on it!
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life it would be my mother in laws curry!
For you, what’s the best thing about training at Speedflex?
Speedflex has such a great atmosphere as all the members and people that I work with are really friendly and funny. It’s great to train with like-minded people that work really hard! All the sessions are different and unique so you never get bored and continue working your body in different ways!
