I get a real buzz from helping people and seeing them achieve or exceed their goals. It's such a rewarding career.”
Martin isn't one for sitting back or slowing down and still has further aspirations.
“I'm ambitious and very excited about progressing the gym further. We have lots of ideas and plans of how we want to grow and develop the business. There's no plans to sit still - moving premises in 2019 was just the start of a new chapter!

Colette Gough - Personal Trainer
As a mother of five girls I understand how hard it can be to stay in shape whilst balancing a busy lifestyle but, with the right nutrition, training plan and motivation it's all possible. Whether your goal is to lose fat, build muscle or just be healthier I have the knowledge and personal experience to help.
I have always enjoyed sports and being active and getting back into fitness has given me more energy and a new lease of life. I am always setting myself new goals and last year I achieved my goal to compete in a fitness model competition. This has given me more confidence in my personal training and new goals to work towards. My aim is to share with others all that I have learnt and inspire them on their own fitness journey.

Ian - Strength & Conditioning Coach
I am a Strength & Conditioning Coach with more than 25 years experience in the sport, health & fitness industry. Years ago, Strength & Conditioning (S&C) was associated with athletes. Today, it has become one of the fastest growing training methodologies for the general public. I fell into this niche in the late 2000’s and have been using it with great success for my clients ever since. S&C is a combination of scientific and evidence based practices. It is an effective, fun and unique method of training and helps you achieve a wide range of goals: body weight/fat loss, injury reduction and increasing your strength and cardio-vascular fitness. I have worked with a broad range of clientele from regular gym users, injured persons to professional athletes. If you do want to lose a bit of body weight or body fat although it is not your only goal - you want to feel better physically and mentally, move better, have less injuries and live a better quality and longer life. Strength & Conditioning may be exactly what you are looking for. Contact me to ask me a question, ask for more details or arrange a free consultation.
