Our Personal Trainers


Maya Petrova:

I am very passionate about exercising, keeping active and participating in various sporting events and competitions. I always look for new exciting ways to challenge myself and so far I have done 7 marathons (my PB 3 hours 13 minutes), races like Total Warrior (x3), Dirty Weekend which is 20 miles and 200 obstacles (x2), Major Series (where I finished as a first woman), Howard Hobble Fell Run (32 miles) and many more… Another passion of mine is HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) which I have been practicing for last 6 years. I also enjoy Boxing, Swimming, Cycling, Hiking and discovering new ways of keeping fit.

I strive to share my passion and knowledge for healthy living and keeping fit. My belief is that a healthy lifestyle does not have to be a chore but a lot of fun, especially if it involves friends and family members being active together. Therefore, I enjoy consulting people about possible lifestyle changes, taking one step at a time and guiding them through the process.

As well as my passion for healthy living I can offer knowledge and practical experience gained through studying and training.

Reece Samuels:

In my younger years I had an inactive lifestyle and carried excess weight.
As I got older I decided to make a change and began to loose weight and gain muscular definition due to regular exercise.
Myself and others noticed my progression which made me feel great that my hard work was paying off.

Now fitness is a part of my lifestyle that I truly enjoy. I compete in Mixed Martial Arts which involves regular training of combat sports such as boxing, wrestling
and kick boxing. I also do strength, conditioning and varied forms of circuit training to keep myself in shape.

My journey has lead me to where I am today. I use my past experience and current knowledge to motivate others who are on the same mission that I was a few years ago;
to become fitter, loose weight, get in shape and feel great.

These are some of the many benefits of exercise that have a positive impact on your life. As a personal trainer the key to my success is creating fun, enjoyable
sessions that are effective to meet your goals. I will motivate and push you one step closer each time, It’s not easy but it’s more than worth it.

Luke Walker:

I am extremely passionate when it comes to promoting a healthy lifestyle and I am determined and driven to help people achieve their goals. My aim is to make your training hard and challenging, but also enjoyable and effective.

I really enjoy training myself and take it seriously, I’ve been training myself and others now for years and don’t think there is a better feeling then walking out the gym knowing you’ve worked 100% and couldn’t have given anymore.

I have had experience with training a wide range of people from the super fit to the trying to get fit, there is no discrimination and I believe that anyone brave enough to take the first step and start training are already champions.

If you feel like you want to change up your training and try something fun and effective, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch for further information and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
