With over a decade’s experience of striving to perform at the highest level of sport, Frano knows exactly what information athletes and sports people crave in their quest for self-improvement. Having completed a master’s degree in mathematics at Loughborough University, Frano has trained alongside some of Great Britain’s best track and field athletes at Loughborough’s National Performance Institute (NPI) including Olympic medallist and two-time European Champion Martyn Rooney. With a mathematics background, analyses of the raw data from testing to give useful insights as to what the numbers mean and how they relate to the athlete’s performance, it is easy for Frano to identify the key weaknesses in an athlete and produce a simple plan to strengthen them. Frano has been part of the Gmax family for over a decade now and can testify to how beneficial not just the training, but the overall environment is. Athletes from his very first training session are still close friends to this day. And over the years as more people joined, plenty more lifelong friends have been made. Through Gmax I have learned about sport, I have learned about life and I have learned about myself. As membership manager I aim to help this legacy continue for many more athletes and many more years to come.

My name is Charlie Carter. I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2013 with a degree in Business Management, and now work in the Restructuring department within KPMG. I have lived in East London since moving to the capital, and have no plans to change that! Outside of work I play plenty of sports, including football, golf and tennis. I’ve also secured a spot in the 2022 London Marathon so will soon need to start getting ready for that! Sports aside, I love venturing out to new restaurants in and around London, so please shout if you have any recommendations!’
