Justin - Head of Fitness

How would you describe your philosophy on fitness, and 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.

 What do you get up to when not in lycra?
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!

Bringing the best out of you

OUR PERSONAL TRAINERS

Ethan PT

ETHAN - Senior Personal Trainer

How would you describe your philosophy on fitness, and do you specialise in anything?
My journey with fitness has been a roller-coaster to say the least. At the start of the pandemic. I found myself to be in a low place, I was physically overweight and unmotivated. The summer lock-down drove me to try new things. I started running daily and working out in the sun. I found my passion and in just a few months my life changed forever.  

What inspired you to get into fitness?
Initially, I was inspired towards fitness thanks to my military training. The demanding standards have always pushed me to try new things and adapt my learning. These conditions drove me to love fitness as I had an end goal which needed to be achieved. Since then, my journey has been adapted and I have thus discovered all elements of fitness, from power lifting to running marathons and everything in between.

What do you get up to in your spare time?
My spare time is jam packed with anything you can think of. I enjoy working with horses, shooting, boxing, playing guitar and exploring new places.

Jana

JANA - Senior Personal Trainer

How would you describe your philosophy on fitness, and do you specialise in anything
Fitness is a life journey; you achieve what you work for and you conquer what you aim for.  

What inspired you to get into fitness?
My mum wanted me to be a ballerina, but after watching a few Bruce Lee movies I wanted to be a fighter! Since I was very young I started karate and over many years of training under Japanese masters I gained a high level in this art. I opened my first dojo and taught students to become World and European champions. Throughout the ups and downs in my life, the karate-way was what always kept me focused, disciplined and happy. 

What do you get up to in your spare time?
You name it I do it.  Skydiving or diving, snowboarding or wakeboarding, mountain biking or road cycling and travelling with my two girls and making millions of memories through our adventures.
