Hi I'm Neil Mehrtens, Head Personal Trainer and founder of NMarine Lifestyle Fitness. I live and work in Devon.


I live in Babbacombe, Torquay with my family, my wife and two boys aged 4 and 2 months.


I have a life long passion for fitness and over 15 years experience in commercial gyms, private corporate clientele and Royal Marines Commando Training. Add to this a wealth of Nutritional knowledge and a passion for improving your lifestyle, I make sure you are well and truly looked after. 

I am also a keen national level Power-lifter for GBPF (Great British Power Lifting) and have competed at national level. One of the key fundamentals is that intelligent exercise prescription and correct form is always used, and I bring this ethos to every one of my clients.

Specialist and Educational Qualifications:

Following five years as a Personal Trainer in a local gym, I spent ten years in HM Royal Marines, completing two tours of Afghanistan and one of both Iraq and Somalia. An injury sustained in Afghanistan led to my eventual medical discharge and extensive physical rehab, an experience which inspired me to start my own Personal Training and Sports Massage business.


My goal is to motivate you to achieve a sustainable new lifestyle of exercise underpinned by a healthy diet, so that eventually you will not need my help and can continue progressing on your own.

''Too often I see people focusing solely on physical training. Health and fitness is not only about exercise''


I can offer you some great advice to make you not only physically stronger but mentally stronger, with proper nutrition, diet and lifestyle advice.
