Meet the Team
Mark is a strength and conditioning coach and a qualified personal trainer, who believes that people should be active, as there are so many physical and mental health benefits.
Mark’s core beliefs are that personal training and strength and conditioning should be bespoke, and be both enjoyable and challenging. He also believes in helping educate clients to the ‘whys’ of training to help people understand the reasons for doing certain exercises.
Mark enjoys training those looking to push themselves to reach their goals: whether that’s getting fit for a sport, fat loss or increasing muscle mass, or just to get that bit healthier. The benefits of exercise not only help with performance and improvement in sports, but in encouraging an overall healthy lifestyle and boosting mental wellbeing, Mark can help you reach your goals, not matter how big or small they are. From his experience working with a range of people – from an aspiring fitness model to a retired ice-climber in remission from cancer, as well as training sports teams such as Brighton and Hove Albion youth team and American Football, Mark has been able to improve performance and wellbeing for a diverse range of clients.
As a professional in the ever-developing fitness industry, Mark is always keen to keep learning: studying and reading to help him improve his own performance. He knows it is vital to keep his own expertise up to date if he want to train you in the best possible way. Mark’s free time is spent trying to stay fit, by lifting weights in the gym and signing up to the occasional challenge: from marathons to half ironman distance triathlons. He also enjoys relaxing by spending time coarse fishing.
Chris is a fully qualified personal trainer, Pilates instructor, massage therapist and holistic lifestyle coach. Her keen interest in health and well-being means that she is continually adding to her repertoire and exploring additional ways to help improve people’s health, fitness and everyday movement.
Chris has an endless curiosity for the human body, mind and movement. Despite her enthusiasm for all things health and fitness, she acknowledges it’s not something everybody is fascinated with or chooses to prioritise. She spent many years in the corporate world, frequently travelling abroad, so is well aware of the stresses and time challenges many face when trying to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Our bodies and minds are all unique and because of this, Chris strongly believes in tailoring programmes to suit each individual. She enjoys using her resources to help, encourage and empower a wide range of people to achieve their fitness goals however small or large those goals may be. Whatever stage of life you’re at she’s keen to emphasise that it’s never too late to start making changes to improve your health.
In her spare time as well as weight-training and Pilates, Chris enjoys trying different exercise and movement classes, travelling, riding her bike, walking, spending time by, on or in the sea, listening to music, trying her hand at different crafts, socialising with friends and family and eating out.
