Olivier Monty was born and raised on the island of Mauritius where he spent most of his childhood between studying and exercising. He wavered among various sports teams – soccer, badminton, track and tennis – before finally sticking to swimming. He spent high school years on his national swimming team, competing at the international level. At the age of 19, he left for Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA, where he earned a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in Chemistry in 2014. He then joined Rice University for a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry, which he is presently working on obtaining.
"Olivier’s motto regarding physical fitness is, ‘Let your envelope be indicative of your soul, for the former is what flesh sees.' Since we humans are flesh as well as soul, why not satisfy the flesh as well. In other words, let your Self shine through your appearance, for most of us mostly see the latter."
Olivier is an NASM certified trainer and his focus is to bring you the right muscles, in the right place, with the right proportions and with the proper performance. In essence, he wants to bring you functional aesthetics. His confidence in being able to train you lies in his experience taking up sports from scratch. ‘Having to start over every time puts one in the skin of the beginner and allows one to experience the challenges thereof. Striving to catch up fast enough forces one to deeply understand the discipline so as to make the most efficient changes along the way.’ He also believes his scientific understanding of human physiology and anatomy will enable him to guide you in a measurable way towards your fitness goals.
