Anthony Bajada

Fitness being a passion from the young age of 14 where I used to swim & compete with Sliema ASC, then this leading me over to the commencement of waterpolo where I spent over 6 years playing also for Sliema ASC and was luckily enough to form part of a special team that lead the wins through many of the minor league titles. I had then ventured into athletics through an inspirational coach and mentor Gerald Grech (to whom I still look up to till this day) - he had led me to the success in an unbeaten MAAA 5km road running series. In the recent years through my passion & love for sports I was spotted and asked to form part of the National rowing team which has been yet another great experience landing the qualifying and participation in two championships BRIC & the world national series in France.

Q&A with Anthony

We asked all of our athletes a couple of questions to get to know them better. Check them out for yourself!

  • How many days per week do you train?


  • What is your approach to dieting?

    Clean eating always and a combination of intermittent fasting though depending on training program and goals.

  • How many times per day do you train?

    Depending on the program goals. It is common for me to train twice daily. One session is strength focused whilst the other is more focused on conditioning.

    Strength session between 60 to 90 minutes.

    Conditioning session 20 to 45 minutes.

  • Use three words that, in your opinion, describe the charactaristics of a champion.

    Humble backgrounds.

    A never ending desire fueled with passion and drive.

    Preserving no matter the surrounding or circumstance.

  • If you could use one short sentence to motivate someone, what would you say?

    Do not look at others & wish to be like them but use that to work on pursuing the best possible version of YOURSELF. We all have what it takes, it's just about tapping into our potential & creating the right mindset

Anthony's Story

Leading me to why I do what I do ! Passion drive & energy - i will stop at nothing to better myself in every aspect and sense of fitness capabilities that i can - why ? To better learn the skill of resilience and share that mental capability to inspire and motivate others that we ALL have what it takes.

Thirdly that's a good one - I do all three recently concluding studies where i graduated in an MBA last year - work within the consulting sector (engineering / operational structures) and also coach - give group session, 1 to 1 sessions which you can almost call a full time basis or majority of my time is spent.
