Willan joined the fitscape team of personal trainers in October 2013 and has become a firm favourite of our guests on fitscape fitness holidays since then. We thought, therefore, you might like to know a bit more about him apart from his basic biography which is alongside all our other expert fitscape personal trainers.
So, we did a quickfire Q & A with Willan - which is the first in our series, so look out for another one every month.
Here's how he answered our questions:
