A Family-Run Personal Training Studio in Hethersett
Brother and sister duo – Carlos & Bex – started working together in 2015 when Carlos first opened his North London personal training studio. Together, they built a hugely popular and successful business in Finchley for 9 years called The Carlos Method, amassing 85, 5* Google Reviews. Over lockdown, they launched the Carlos Method Fitness YouTube channel to help clients keep fit at home while the studio was closed. This is still going strong with 260+ videos uploaded and has grown to over 3,200 subscribers worldwide.
Carlos chose to move to Norfolk in 2023 to be closer to family and immediately spotted a gap in the market to bring 30-minute personal training sessions to South Norfolk. Whilst there are a lot of fitness services in the area, we believe that what we offer is unique, due to Carlos’ friendly personality and training approach. Personal training is about the technical skills and experience of a PT, together with being an easy person to work with, who can get the best out of you, on any given day.
Bex steers things from behind the scenes and helps Carlos with the marketing and operations of the business, leaving Carlos to do what he does best – personal training, client care and social media. As a small, family business they have created a safe, inclusive, and energetic training space, where clients are motivated to come and get fit.

His friendly, down-to-earth nature, together with his expert personal training skills are what keeps his sessions fun and interesting – whilst still always delivering a tough workout. Carlos loves seeing a client smash through a challenging session with him and setting new personal bests, which they didn’t think possible at the outset of their training. Carlos gets his clients enthused about exercise and even looking forward to their upcoming sessions. He always listens to clients and how they are feeling on the day, and what they feel like doing. This will factor into his design of each session. Through his training skills and experience, he formulates and delivers workouts that keep clients both mentally and physically engaged.
