Meet the Coaches


HEAD COACH – Craig

Like many, I left school not really knowing what I wanted to do in life, and ended up spending 7 years in retail as a result. I wouldn’t say I hated it, but it definitely didn’t excite me enough to consider it a career.

During this time I started my own fitness journey, and after a few years I encountered a frustration that so many people experience – a big fat lack of progress! This created a desire for me to learn and understand the theory and science behind my failings so I could learn from my mistakes, which inevitably ignited my passion for fitness and nutrition and made my transition into the industry a no-brainer.

In 2014 I qualified as a Level 3 PT and have worked in gyms ever since. I’ve participated in group exercise, CrossFit, strength training, long and short bouts of cardio, obstacle events, and training to change my body shape. I was Pure Gym’s PT of the year in 2015 and have more recently certified as a nutritionist with MNU, achievements I believe that, when combined with my failures, outline some of my key attributes – knowledge, compassion, and the willingness to help others.


ASSISTANT HEAD COACH – Lucy

My background has always been Health and Fitness – I did a BSc in Sports Biomedicine and Nutrition, an MSc in Sports Coaching and then went on to do my Level 3 Personal Training qualification as a side project. Little did I know that that side project would turn into my career!

I’ve worked in a gym since qualifying in 2012 and manage Leisure clubs as my full time job. Group Exercise classes and group sessions are my absolute passion and I want to bring that community and camaraderie into all aspects of my coaching.

I’m like you. I love chocolate, sometimes going to the gym is the last thing I want to do, and I would be a typical yo-yo dieter if I wasn’t educated in fitness and nutrition. I can relate to the everyday struggles of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and accountability is the one thing that keeps me on track.

I’m here to support you through the everyday struggles, with a group of likeminded people, on the same mission, who will hold each over accountable.
