How can I help you improve your health?

Starting off my training experience as a teenager I went through every sports phase imaginable. Starting off as a rugby player I’ve been fortunate enough to experience a lot through playing the sport, which brought me to focus on strength and conditioning. Currently I call myself a CrossFit “athlete” spending a lot of my free time perfecting various new skills always learning to compete to the best of my abilities.

Training in a gym can be an intimidating experience at times and I’m here to make it as fun and stress free as possible. Having followed my own training plan since I got into training 8 years ago I come with a vast knowledge across different training philosophies. From functional fitness, sports conditioning, Olympic weightlifting, fat loss and muscle gain. So don’t hesitate to stop me on the gym floor and ask some questions relating to your goals.

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I want to help clients create healthy habits and have fun exercising. I have a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science and an MSc in Clinical Exercise Science, during which I focused on promoting exercise to prevent and manage long term health conditions.

I am qualified to work with clients living with and beyond cancer, using exercise to improve the associated side effects.

I work with clients to ensure they feel confident using the gym and that the programme is specific to their goals, and I aim to improve physical and mental health through exercise sessions.

About Ciara
I am friendly and caring, and have always been interested in exercise. I trained and competed at a high level of Irish Dancing from a young age, winning major competitions including 2 world titles alongside my team. This has given me a good understanding of the training required to compete at a high level. I would like to pass this on to junior members to provide support for their own training. When I stopped dancing I struggled with finding a healthy balance with exercise and a change in body shape following years of intense training. I now train to manage my mental health and reach the physical goals I set. I have found enjoyment in my training and want to help others do the same. I understand the challenges that are faced with exercise and changing our behaviours and want to encourage others to live a healthy lifestyle, build confidence and enjoy exercising!

Jaxon Kerr

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I can help you reach your health and fitness goals with a tailored programme designed specifically for your goals and lifestyle in mind.  I have recently left the military after completing my level 2 & 3 personal training qualifications, however, my time in the military included training with incredible athletes that used a large selection of training methods. I have had success with training my clients for a wide selection of goals from fat loss to ultra-endurance sports events. No matter your goal, I am here to help with a fun but focused training regime that is proven to work.

About Jaxon

I like to class myself as a hybrid athlete mainly because of my range of training from strongman to 500-mile bike rides. I joined the Army when I was 16 and travelled to some of the worlds most isolated places each of which I completed some sort of sporting event, from a marathon in the Falkland Islands to a strongman competition in the deserts of Iraq. My biggest sporting achievement was an 80 mile run around an 800m camp in Afghanistan which took 48 hours to complete due to the environment and job role. If you ever want to talk about health, fitness or just life in general, I am always happy to chat.

Jamie Neill

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I have a Sports Studies degree and 15 years’ coaching experience in fitness and sport, spanning several countries within leisure centres, education and mental health groups. This has developed key skills that ensure I meet the needs of any client, notably communication, drive, empathy and a positive attitude. Whether a shy starter, to training for a competitive event, I’ll give you my knowledge and motivation to smash any limiting beliefs and make progress.

At Nuffield, I also provide Sports Massage, teach Boxercise, Les Mills GRIT and Spin, plus tutor the Lifeguard and First Aid course.

About Jamie

I’m friendly, outgoing and love a challenge, and keep health and fitness as an integral part of my life. I competed internationally for Scotland at badminton, reaching 75 in the world and winning the Scottish title twice; a journey that meant full-time training and commitment. I’ve since began hiking, bagging 100 Munro mountains in 2019, and completing a triathlon, the West Highland Way and the 4000-metre Mount Toubkal in Morocco; all for charity. The outdoors and gym have greatly improved my physical, mental and social health. Since 3 of my family have dealt with MS, I value living life to the full and am passionate about helping others to get fitter, build a strong mindset, and develop their confidence and self-belief, both in the gym and in everyday life.


What my Clients say:

“Jamie’s skills and knowledge identified with my goals, and his motivational style of teaching and training brought the best out of me. He was thoroughly interested in my health and wellbeing and had the passion, personality and sense of humour to make me feel at ease from the beginning, then to persevere and work hard."
