Meet The Team


Before qualifying as a personal trainer and massage (both Sports and Swedish) therapist, I was an officer in the Royal Navy and a chartered accountant.

Not being somebody who likes to be bored and always being up for a new challenge, over the last ten years I have embarked on a career as an exercise class teacher; personal trainer and massage therapist. A decision I certainly don’t regret!

I enjoy getting to know new people, being out of doors and generally being active but I also love food and drink and believe that it is possible to have a balance between the two. I enjoy setting myself challenges and have just completed my Stott Pilates Matwork Course and am currently working towards my exam for formal Certification. I have also finished my Level 4 Qualification in Exercise and Nutritional Inventions for Obesity and Diabetes and also a Level 3 Qualification in GP Exercise Referral. This allows me to work with clients with a wide range of illnesses ranging from high blood pressure or high cholesterol to depression and anxiety.

“I use my imagination and the wide variety of equipment available to ensure that each training session is different but challenging and fun. My ethos is never give up, if you have a set back put it behind you and keep moving forwards and look to the future.”

Specialist Areas

Are functional training (exercise based on everyday movements); the use of exercise in managing lower back pain and massage (Sports and Swedish). I also love training with kettlebells, boxercise, TRX, medicine balls and VIPrs. I primarily work from my home studio in Park Gate, near Fareham

Grant Smith

I have been involved in the fitness industry for over 18 years. Including managing gyms in Saudi Arabia.  I’m currently working at Spirit Health Club as a personal trainer.

My passion is basketball which I’ve played at both National and European level.  I also spent the summer training with an NCAA side in America. I still train on a regular basis and also enjoy both strength and power training.

I have two young daughters who keep me on my toes.  Both under 10 and extremely active.  Looking after them is a workout on it’s own!  But I love every minute of it.

“No two sessions are ever the same. I like to challenge my clients by using a variety of training techniques. I’m a great believer in the ethos that if you don’t enjoy what you do, you’ll never stick to it”
