Stephane Karam

Hello everyone and Welcome to Pure Gym Newtownabbey!


My name is Stephane Karam and I am a personal trainer here at Pure Gym Newtownabbey. During the last 6 months, I have loved the community here and I hope you do too!


What got me interested in starting a career in personal training is that in this job you get to meet a lot of new and interesting people and share a common interest in health, fitness and exercise. I also think that with every workout you get to develop yourself, and this will help to improve your outline and perception of life outside of barbells and machines. Whatever your goal in the gym, training and preparation is no different than a marathon or trek up a mountain.


When I started exercising myself, I did not come from a very athletic or competitive background, but I was the guy who kept showing up. Having Asperger Syndrome myself, I have found exercise to help me prepare of physical and psychological demands of the world outside of the gym.


When I am not personal training, I like immersing myself in education, endurance and explosive workouts that stimulate the body and mind. Remember, I am here to provide physical and mental guidance and support in your health and fitness journey whether you are a beginner or a regular exerciser.


Please come and say hi as I would be happy to meet you and share my passion for endurance with you all. Remember you won’t always be motivated, but it’s showing up day after day that will creating lasting results!
