INSTRUCTORS

Mark Poleon - Chief Instructor

Personal Statement:

Your health directly impacts every aspect of your life, so why not invest in yourself and maximize your potential to look and feel great!

 

I believe that exercise should not only be effective, but enjoyable! It has a positive effect on your physical and mental well-being. So whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle and strength, increase flexibility, improve cardio fitness or stress relief, I can help!

 

We all set ourselves goals, but more often than not; certain things prevent us from getting where we deserve to be. But whatever your goals, I’ll be there to give expert advice, understand your needs and provide you with the necessary information, motivation and support you need to succeed.

 

The only risks you regret in life are the ones you never take!

Laura Crouch - Instructor

Personal Statement:

With our current lifestyle, we've got packed schedules and never seem to have time to prioritise our health and fitness. 

 

It's time to reprioritise, put yourself first for a couple of hours a week and you'll notice the difference.

 

Those who exercise regularly have more energy, sleep better, feel fitter and stronger which contributes to improved mental and physical health. 

 

I'll be here to help you ease into the change, set realistic goals and have fun in the process.

 

This is a judgement free space so come along and see what we can do for you. One step at a time.
