About

Welcome to UmaxFitness, the online home of one of the leading elite personal trainers Eastbourne has to offer, Umberto Massimino.

Like a false horizon on a long journey, many Eastbourne locals have made their way hopefully to local gyms, only to find that their individual inhibitions or lack of experience prevent them from achieving the results they hoped for.

Results PT! I joined Umberto for several reasons, post major op, frozen shoulder, weight loss. In such a short period of time . . . Life changing! His style, understanding and goals are such a motivator. I’ve gone from a nervous exerciser to a much more informed gym goer, never thought I’d be a person who enjoyed weights. Would thoroughly recommend, havn’t looked back, worth every penny. More...

My husband and I are just about to start our third month of individual sessions with Umberto, which speaks for itself really! Although i haven’t always found it easy to leave the work stresses at the door, Umberto has been patient and supportive every time. His positive outlook and encouragement gives me confidence even when I don’t have it myself. I am now starting to see some real progress and changes to my body and I am excited to continue training with Umberto. If you are looking for focussed 121 training geared towards your individual needs and abilities, I can highly recommend Umberto and Umaxfitness - he has incredible knowledge and experience in fitness and training.

Umberto is simply amazing! Sessions with him are never boring, quite the opposite. There's no time for messing around during any class. He keeps me engaged throughout and my body goes way beyond what I thought it was capable of. I suffer from back pain and incorrect posture, Umberto kindly explained the causes, shared helpful tricks & tips and walked me through some exercise to address my issues. I highly recommend you get in touch with him. You won't regret it Thank you so much Umberto More...

I have been working out for a number of years, but my training and nutrition have been all over the place. Working with Umberto gave me another level of confidence I didn't know I had. I really enjoyed the sessions with Umberto, and his encouragement allowed me to lift weights that I never would have on my own. He teaches great techniques to get the postures and statures correct- so as to get the most out of a work out and to avoid getting hurt. Thank you Umberto :) More...

A few weeks ago I was really stuck in a rut and knew things had to change. I did a search on the Internet and liked the idea of getting back into fitness with a personal trainer, in a relatively private setting. My main aim, really, is to get into a routine where activity and training are part of my lifestyle, although I would like to lose some weight (classic) and generally feel better about myself. In my first meeting with Umberto, he listened to my aims, asked pertinent questions and as a result has devised a programme that I am really enjoying. He gives you all of his attention in the sessions, focusing on good technique as well as firing up muscles that have been asleep a long time. I leave the sessions feeling energised and positive, and look forward to each one. He doesn't just give advice for the hour you are there. He helps you to adapt your lifestyle, little by little, so that the little changes become healthy habits. I have not cut down on food at all over the last two weeks (although I am supposed to be cutting back on the vino) - if anything I have been eating more (protein especially on Umbertos advice), yet have lost 2kg. Not only that, but I keep prodding myself in the stomach since I am convinced it is starting to tone up (as well as admiring my legs in the mirror and striking muscle-man poses but that is probably too much info). I really recommend giving it a try, especially if you need to find your mojo again! More...

Umberto is an excellent trainer. Sessions are never the same. Before having PT sessions with Umberto I lacked motivation in the gym and had quite bad back pain. After 4 weeks of training with him my motivation has returned and my back is so much better. I lost body fat and gained muscle. He has taught me so much in that time. Would definitely recommend him.

After years of failed attempts, I finally feel like I have the right guidance and mentoring to achieve my fitness goals in an attainable, sustainable and highly tailored way. Umberto pays extreme attention into ensuring I learn the correct techniques as well as the theory behind every exercise (once again paying close attention to my specific physical needs).

Excellent Personal Trainer. Very experienced and knowledgable. Highly recommend

14 January 2019

I have been training with Umberto for a couple of months now and in my opinion believe he is one of the most experienced and committed Personal Trainers around. Having struggled with illness and not being very active over recent years, I was overweight, felt very lethargic and lacked the confidence and motivation on my own to better myself.
Since training with Umberto my fitness and strength has improved considerably and each day I wake up feeling more proactive. Umberto knows how to motivate me during our sessions and makes each of them challenging and rewarding. He ensures that my technique is always correct to avoid any injuries and he is always ready to start training ahead of time with an exercise routine planned out for me.
I have been able to do things I never thought I could possibly achieve! Umberto has given me the push I needed and I look forward to continue working with him throughout the foreseeable future. I highly recommend him as a Personal Trainer to anyone needing help to achieve their fitness goals!

I would highly recommend Umberto. Never had a personal trainer before and was a bit nervous if i could do this being middle fifties and very much overweight. He puts you at ease, and only after one week I feel so much better in myself. Umberto pushes you and you don't realise it. His nutritional advice is extremely good. He is reassuring and very knowledgeable. More...

He takes the time to get to understand your goals & with his help over the years I have done things I never thought I could! the gym is amazing, great space with some challenging equipment, but I always leave feeling amazing about the workout! ❤️ More...

I have regular 1-1 training with Umberto. He is an excellent PT who tailors sessions to meet my goals; includes plenty of variety – free weights, bodyweight, HIIT, stretching, co-ordination and mobility – in the workouts; and is knowledgeable about physiology, anatomy and nutrition. He is also incredibly supportive, engaging and encouraging and, unlike some PTs, doesn’t prejudge or underestimate what his clients can achieve. Whatever your age or gender, Umberto will encourage you to achieve your maximum. With his help, I have lifted heavier weights than I would have managed otherwise; strengthened my core; improved my posture, stamina and co-ordination; and become more mindful of how my body should feel and respond to exercise. It’s also had unexpected benefits – my yoga practice has improved immeasurably as I can focus more closely on each muscle – and I sit much better at my work desk. I have no hesitation in recommending Umberto for either 1-1 or group training sessions. More...

I love Umbertos classes, he switches it up every time so it's varied and gives a full body work out. I always come out feeling amazing and like I have worked to my capacity even in the 30 minute classes. I firmly believe that without these classes I would not have lost the weight I have this year and am really grateful to him for his help! Not only are the classes great but he is always there for nutritional and health advice going over and above what you would expect from a PT! I can't recommend him and his classes enough! ������ More...

So I had my first session with Umberto a few days ago, and didn't realise I was quite that unfit! He definitely made me work a lot harder than I would have done alone, but also made sure the exercise were safe for my first proper work out post c-section. Would definitely recommend him!!

Q&As

I do have a different approach to fitness where knowledge transfer is at the heart of the session. My clients are empowered so they can apply techniques and programs in future on their own. Adaptability and flexibility to clients needs are a must in my business.

Hard work and consistency. There are no short cuts!

I define myself a people person and i love the interactions with everyone. Because of that i have the opportunity to learn something new every single day, something not strictly related to fitness only.

A motorbike crush! When i broke my left shoulder i didn't receive adequate care from NHS and i thought "i will never be able to use my arm normally again". But at some point i decided to fight back and apply the small exercises from the physiotherapy in a bit larger scale in the gym 6 times per week. My recovery was astonishing. In 3 months doing that i recovered almost 90% of the normal use of my left arm. At that time i was heavily overweight as i was on bed for a while after the crush so i set to lose weight as my next goal. Using HIIT training with light weights and fast speed i lost around 30 kilos in 4 months! One day my girlfriend said "if you like what you do that much why don't you help others to achieve the same". So here i am.

Differently of some other PTs i have experienced pain, i have experienced frustration, at some point i hated my body and i know how people feel when they talk about their life. For this reason i have created Umaxfitness gym. A completely different environment compared to commercial gyms. A small community where members come from similar experience and they are looking for something a bit more advanced for their training.
