Watch: Arsenal’s Theo Walcott put through his paces
Arsenal star Theo Walcott hits the gym with personal trainer Bradley Simmonds
Theo Walcott was put through his paces by personal trainer Bradley Simmonds as the Arsenal striker looks to get in tip-top shape ahead of the 2016/17 Premier League season.
The 26-year-old wasn’t included in Roy Hodgson’s England squad after a disappointing season for the Arsenal striker, falling behind Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck in the pecking order.
Walcott was linked with a move to the Gunners’s Premier League rivals Liverpool and West Ham United during the season but Arsene Wenger has insisted the forward remains part of his plans.
And the England forward linked up with personal trainer Simmonds for a session on Tuesday afternoon as the former Southampton man looked to maintain his fitness during the off-season.
Simmonds posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote: “Brilliant first session with Arsenals @theowalcott today. Really looking forward to working with Theo this Summer as he looks to get super sharp, preparing for next season ⚽️ I’ll be posting what we do here on my Instagram so stay tuned. Check out my snapchat – bradley_simmo 👍🏻 #bradleysimmonds #personaltrainer #theowalcott #arsenal #adidas #fitfam #fitspo”
Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table last season after a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa on the final day of the season.
