Justin - Head of Fitness

How would you describe your philosophy on fitness and wellbeing? Do you specialise in anything?

Health, fitness and well-being should be a lifestyle – not a finite endpoint. At the heart of my ethos is that training should be fun and enjoyable, that way it becomes a continual part of your lifestyle and you avoid extreme fluctuations in your approach to staying fit. I have a BSc (Hons) first class degree in Strength & Conditioning Science from St. Mary’s University. I specialise in rehab/prehab, movement biomechanics and functional fitness.

What inspired you to get into fitness?
Having come from a sporting family and having competed to county level in both cricket and tennis I’ve always been into training and continually striving to be the best version of myself as possible.

I am a self-confessed sport nut: tennis, golf, cricket, running, skiing, you name it I’ve probably tried it or willing to give it a go; and spending time with my wife and two kiddies!


Kim- Senior Personal Trainer

How would you describe your philosophy on fitness and wellbeing? Do you specialise in anything?

Physical fitness is a state of health and well-being, achieved through good nutrition, moderate to vigorous exercise and sufficient rest. This for me equals wellness and happiness, mentally and physically. A lifetime in fitness has given me the opportunity to experience most fitness trends. My favourite being strength training and Pilates, but I also enjoy teaching boxing and Yoga amongst other training methods.

What inspired you to get into fitness?

My biggest inspirations are my parents, who live in Austria and at the age of 80 still head to the gym frequently. After studying classic dance and fitness for many years in Austria, I moved to England. After taking my exams for sports therapy and massage I decided to stay in the UK. After 35 years in the fitness industry, I am still very passionate about improving and helping my clients reach their goals.

What do you get up to when not in lycra?

I spend all my time with my six-year-old son who we home-educate. He fills my diary outside the gym. We are usually found outdoors, either in the beautiful New Forest or our local beach. When at home gaming or reading books.

Our Personal Trainers


Ross- Senior Personal Trainer

How would you describe your philosophy on fitness and well-being? Do you specialise in anything?

I would describe my philosophy on fitness as a healthy holistic approach. Tackling all aspects of fitness, from the grind in the gym to the lifestyle at home. Fitness is a constant journey that can be made enjoyable, exciting, and personable - as you discover training styles tailored to your lifestyle and your goals.

With my experience, I can specialise in a variety of areas, from body transformations to ski instructing, from prehab to rehab. I can specialise in creating a safe and informative environment for those taking the first steps in their fitness journey, or I can fine-tune the performance of experienced lifters.

What inspired you to get into fitness?

My passion for fitness began once I started to win fitness competitions, as I find I have a healthy competitive spirit! From winning my school cross-country race in year 1 to winning a variety of sporting tournaments in recent years, to beating my own ‘personal bests’ in my own fitness journey. I love the progression, the grind and the feel-good factor that comes along with it. If I can help others do the same, then I get an even bigger kick from it!

What do you get up to when not in lycra?

When I’m not teaching fitness, I’m trying to live it! I take part in a variety of sports; football, badminton, tennis, swimming, and skiing as often as I can. Otherwise, I am in the gym or at my local beach on the Jurassic Coast.

Today’s human needs to Re-wild itself!  Modern life is having a detrimental effect on us all. A fully holistic approach to fitness, nutrition and wellbeing is needed. It’s important to embrace our ancestors and environment to reap the benefit of the wonders of the world around us. I specialise in Functional Patterns, Human Mechanics and Movement including Barefoot I also practice sports therapy/rehab and massage.

What inspired you to get into fitness?

I’ve always strived to be the best of the best! I enlisted into the Royal Artillery and passing “The All-Arms Commando Course” one of the world’s toughest military courses in 1995 serving with 29 Commando Regiment RA, where I PTI class 3 course (Physical training instructor) during my service I prepared recruits for both Para and Commando selection and in my final years of service in 32 Regt RA, I looked after the rehab needs of my unit.

What do you get up to when not in lycra?

When I’m not working, I’m either out on the water on my SUP board or at “Snowtrax” skiing, coaching friends and family or just enjoying myself. My family and I love being out in the forest or beach enjoying the wilds and wonders around us. I also enjoy traveling, from Finish Lapland in the depths of winter and warmer places such as Morocco and Greece.


Flossie- Senior Personal Trainer

How would you describe your philosophy on fitness and wellbeing? Do you specialise in anything?

My Philosophy of fitness lies much deeper than what we see on the outside. Exercise is all about overall wellness, including mental wellbeing. Fitness is the concept of looking after your body and also listening to it. Working out should be fun and enjoyable as well as a challenge. I have a fond interest in bringing out the best in everyone, by reaching your goals and having a good time whilst doing it. Whether you want to grow muscle, feel more confident or need assistance with rehab or prehab I will make it my goal, to achieve your goal.

What inspired you to get into fitness?

Fitness has very much dominated the majority of my life. My hunger for success all began at the age of 8, when I competed in artistic gymnastics. I began to outgrow gymnastics as I found myself going up the England hockey pathway. I started out playing for Hampshire and after serval years of trials, I secured a place for the England U18 squad at the Home Nations tournament. Playing at Lilleshall was an eye-opening experience and it really taught me the foundations of athleticism and professionalism in the industry.

What do you get up to when not in lycra?

When I am not at work you will probably find me at the beach, swimming, surfing, running or walking my dog. As well as giving myself my own fitness goals at the gym. Anything outside in the elements is my idea of heaven.


Steph - Senior Personal Trainer

How would you describe your philosophy on fitness, and do you specialise in anything?

Acknowledging that everyone's fitness journey is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Understanding your own body, preferences, and limitations is key to designing a fitness and wellbeing plan that works for you. Emphasizing moderation in exercise, diet, and lifestyle choices is crucial. I strongly believe fitness is like anything in life; the more you put in, the more you get out.

What inspired you to get into fitness?

I was the school girl that would skip P.E lessons and my eating habits were a rollercoaster to say the least. Lockdown came around whilst I was at my heaviest, I saw this as an opportunity to use this time to my advantage. I set myself a small goal to feel better about myself and to start loving the girl staring back at me in the mirror. After moving more and eating less the weight started coming down. By the end of the first lockdown, I was 5 stone lighter. I felt the best I'd ever felt physically & mentally; fitness was never a chore anymore. By the end of the third lockdown (just in time for the gyms to re-open) I had my Personal Training qualification so that I can inspire others that fitness doesn't need to be scary and it can be fun. I have always enjoyed challenging myself, now that I've found fitness it's a perfect match.

What do you get up to when not in lycra?

On weekends you’ll find me in cute coffee spots after a long walk in the forest. Evenings are taken up by watching crime documentaries on Netflix and spending quality time with my partner.

Charlotte - Senior Personal Trainer

How would you describe your philosophy on Fitness and do you specialise in anything?

My philosophy on fitness is incorporating every element of overall health together to join the jigsaw puzzle. Looking into movement, functional strengths, health, well-being and nutrition in order to feel your best. Working for over 10 years in a medical spa, I have experience in Gut health, prevention, nutrition and working on many elements of the body inside and out to help reset and re-energise. I also work a lot with neuro sensory stimulation and barefoot movement.

What inspired you to get into fitness?

I have always had an interest in sports and activities. My passion developed more over time with personal life experiences. I love trialling and testing new ways of looking after myself in order to be able to pass and share this with others. I love being with people and forever learning new skills and knowledge.

What do you get up to when not in lycra?

In my spare time I love to be outdoors, early morning walks along the seafront and outdoor exercise. I play the Saxophone, so I love music and a good dance. Movement and music make me happy! I also love cooking, being brought up within a family restaurant.
