Chris Keep - Owner, Coach and Senior Personal Trainer
Chris has been qualified as a Personal Trainer for 8 years, and still gets the same satisfaction from helping people move forwards in their journey. “I spent a lot of time working in larger commercial gyms - I had a great time and learned a lot, but I was always troubled by how few people made a commitment to themselves and actually stuck to it. In particular, I learned how important weight training is to women of all ages, but understood that not many women felt comfortable or confident to go into the weights area and become stronger!”
The idea around my gym is - to create a positive, non-judgemental, encouraging environment in which we educate and support our members to do exercises they wouldn’t do in other gyms - and then get results they wouldn’t get in other gyms!
Our reviews on facebook speak for themselves - as a member of my gym, you’ll never just be a number, and we’ll always help you to progress your training. Almost always, people are capable of a lot more than they believe - they need time to learn the technique, and a gentle push in the right direction.
Why Chris as your Personal Trainer?
“Quality is the driving factor behind everything which I strive for. My main areas in which I consider myself specialised are movement proficiency in compound lifts, and I enjoy applying attention to detail to help people improve daily aches and pains - particularly backs and knees! If you’d like to know more about what we offer our members, and what I do with my Personal Training clients, it would be a pleasure to speak with you.”
