Our staff at Guildford

Jon Chu

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I chose to become a Wellbeing Personal Trainer here at Nuffield Health because of my focus upon high-level training whilst encouraging healthy, sustainable training and lifestyle choices and my belief that this is not emphasised enough within Gym culture. I specialise in aesthetic movement, posture, body sculpting, weight gain, weight loss, agility, functional movement and mobility as well as performance biased strength and conditioning and injury rehabilitation.  I have been a qualified personal trainer and sports rehabilitation massage therapist since 2004.

I am married with two kids, and I am a former professional contemporary/ballet dancer and senior university lecturer… In fact, I was a Founding Lecturer on the dance undergraduate degree at Kingston University and taught there, full-time, for more than a decade. Being in my mid-40’s now, I am increasingly aware of all the physical changes that time brings with it, and how to adapt physical training and lifestyles accordingly. 

I also have a background in martial arts and have trained under Master Huang Ping in Modern Wushu and Taijiquan (Tai Chi). I was a Taijiquan Jian (straight sword) gold medallist at SENI in 2008.

I'd love to hear from you and have a chat about how I might be able to help you with any training goals that you might have, especially if you have an interest in the type of training I do. 

I am also a fan of general natters - especially if it involves hot coffee.

Leigh Clark

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I have been involved in the Fitness Industry for the past 13 years. After several years of being sat at a desk for work I noticed that my body was beginning to tighten up and as a result I experienced pain and reduced mobility.

I was forced to find a solution, which led me to the functional training and rehab I focus on today. I focus on the fundamentals of movement that we as humans naturally exhibit. I use a number of techniques to create muscle balance in the body, all of which reduce pain and create more efficient movement.

I aim to educate my clients on all aspects of health, fitness, nutrition and overall wellbeing. The goal is for my clients to have the tools to live a healthy and happy life.

What my Clients say:

“Leigh is very good at explaining the reasons for some of the training methods he uses. I would never have thought to do this type of training but I’m glad I have! I don’t feel tightness in my legs any more and he makes the sessions fun….”

Reece Edwards

How can I help you improve your health?

What my Clients say:

“I have been going to the gym for many years now but have never seen an improvement. Reece had approached me and offered some guidance and when taking his advice, I started to see improvements.  I didn’t feel this was enough, so I decided to sign up for Personal Training. Within no time at all I had seen vast improvements and smashed my targets. I have never felt so happy with myself inside and out. He has given me a new healthier and more positive life and I can't thank him enough!”

My qualifications

  • CIMSPA Level 3

What my Clients say:

“I’ve found Sam to be an excellent Personal Trainer. I was nervous about joining the Gym, but found that he was as interested in me as a whole person, rather than separating out the fitness side of things. He took into account my lifestyle and health and set some goals and aims that have given me the confidence that nothing is too difficult. If it is, he seems to find a way around it.”

“Sam is kind and has a warm personality which has made it a pleasure to have the training sessions with him.”


Andrew Lane

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I want to help you be the best you can be. My main passion in life is teaching and no matter what I've done through the years I always seem to end up teaching it to people.

For myself, I'm a martial artist and I have been training, competing and teaching Brazilian jiujitsu for the past 7 years. Most of my own training revolves around being the best athlete I can be in a very dynamic contact sport. I have always cross trained and been interested in all aspects of fitness and this is where I can help you. Remember, I want to help you to be the best you can be!

Rachel Tasker

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I have been working at Nuffield Health Guildford Fitness and Wellbeing Gym for two years now. Rowing was a big part of my life for about 18 years, the reason I loved it so much was the mixture of fitness and friends. This is what I bring to my training sessions, balance of fun and fitness. I can help you build your cardio capacity and gain confidence with building strong muscles with free weights.

I am recently qualified to accept referrals from GP's to work with individuals who are currently living with: hypertension, diabetes, obesity, bone or joint conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis, COPD and mental health.

If you are considering PT sessions come and have a chat or book a free consultation.
