THE TRAINERS

Em and Andy met in the gym in 2002 and have now been married for 10 years. They set up their personal training business together in 2004 and have been working in partnership ever since. Both Em and Andy have more than 15 years' experience in health, fitness and/or professional sport. They provide a professional and reliable service whilst being friendly and down to earth. They are great at motivating and encouraging clients to achieve their goals and will be there to support clients when they need them most.

Em was born in 1979 and began her career in fitness in 1998, completing both an HND and a BSc in Science and Management of Exercise and Health. During her four years of studying she also trained for 2 years with the Fitness Leader of the Year 1997/98, gaining valuable knowledge and experience that most personal trainers go through their entire career without. She is a qualified aerobics instructor and spent 2 years as the Group Fitness Coordinator at one of the UK’s largest health and fitness clubs.

As a result of her qualifications and experience, Em was head hunted to train Formula 3 and Renault World Series motor sports teams. Her client portfolio includes Reading FC, Melinda Messenger, Danyl Johnson (X-Factor), the former UK #1 snow boarder, a member of the GB synchronised swimming team and a county level shot putter. However, Em gets most pleasure from improving the lives of everyday people who range from church ministers to doctors and mums.

Em’s background is in dance but these days she enjoys horse riding in her spare time. She has a horse who she regularly competes in the sport of eventing.

Born in 1979, Andy began his career in the fitness industry as a professional rugby player with Northampton Saints RFC. He has dedicated his time to fitness instructing and personal training since 1998, following a 2 year BTEC National Diploma in Sports Science. Since this time he has also gained YMCA and ACSM qualifications and has more recently completed Lifetime Dynamic Training.

More than 7 years of Andy’s fitness career was spent at one of the UK’s largest health and fitness clubs at senior instructor/personal trainer level. He has extensive experience in injury rehab, pre and post-natal exercise and sports specific training.

Andy is known for achieving results through delivering fun, creative and effective workouts. His clients include movie stars, television personalities such as Lenny Henry, sports professionals, mums and busy office managers. On a more personal level, Andy enjoys a variety of fitness activities including CrossFit, rugby and tennis.
