Scott Appleby

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I have been qualified as a Personal Trainer since 2014 and since this time I have built great rapport with clients through my friendly and encouraging style of training. My sporting background is martial arts and I hold a 4th Degree black belt (Master Level) in a martial art called Tang Soo Do, which is similar to Taekwondo. I used to run my own martial arts club and coached students to win Gold Medals in the World Championships and British Championships.

In 2018 I began studying Functional Patterns which looks at training people, using the movement patterns that humans evolved to do. This means integrating the body as one whole unit when working out. You’ll find through this way of training that cardio, strength and conditioning, coordination and mobility are all covered in the same exercise! I will be attending a course in Hawaii at the end of 2021 and will the be qualified as the only Human Biomechanics Specialist in Wales meaning you will be getting some very specialist training. Come and give it a try!

  • Human Biomechanics Instructor with Functional Patterns
  • Injury Rehabilitation/ Joint Pain Management
  • Rotational training for a strong, functional core/abs

Robin Hammett

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I was always very sporty in my teens and early twenties, however without realising the weight was slowly creeping on and I was almost 17 stone. Due to this, I was then put on high blood pressure tablets. This scared me into taking action! I joined a gym and within 6 months, I had lost over four stone. I had found a love for fitness and exercise that made me want to become a personal trainer and help people change their lives.

I have been there and I can help you achieve your goals.
