Isla Cloke

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

As your trainer, I believe my role extends further than just instructing movement patterns and exercises; it is my aim to equip you with skills and knowledge so you can take control of your own health and fitness journey. Understanding why you are doing something is far more empowering and effective in producing long-lasting results. I also enjoy helping people who are new to training become more confident and comfortable within the gym environment.

Using knowledge learnt throughout my university education I also have the ability to help individuals living with chronic diseases (such as diabetes, cardiac and respiratory diseases) to live a healthier and more fulfilling quality of life.

Anna Cornock

Fitness Manger and Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

With my interest in sports massage, it was natural that I found a passion in sports injuries and rehab. I have had the pleasure of working with many clinical patients who have had a wide range of injuries such as; broken backs to complete knee replacements and everything in between.

As your trainer, I find nothing more rewarding than watching you achieve goals that you never thought you could or would. I am here to help you push your boundaries one step at a time to achieve your end goal.

My love of sports has been with me for as long as I can remember. I played hockey at a high level throughout both secondary school and college before transitioning into dance and spending 16 years as a cheerleader and cheerleading coach where I was lucky enough to travel to the World’s competition.

What my Clients say:

“Anna has been an unbelievable help and her rehab knowledge is second to none. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. After a complete knee replacement, I had no idea if I would ever walk without the help of a walking stick but with Anna’s knowledge, help, encouragement and patience not only am I walking unaided but I have been back on a bike, do a run (even if it was super slow) and I am even squatting using the bar. Something I never thought I would be able to do. I cannot thank Anna enough for everything that she has done for me and because of this I cannot recommend her enough.” - Andy D

Jay Quick

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I became interested in fitness and training when in 2015 I made the choice to change everything I did and through training, effort and willpower I lost five stone in two years, so I got my level 2 and 3 in fitness in 2017 and changed the idea of where I wanted to be, because of this I want to inspire and motivate people into achieving their goals, from weight loss and feeling fitter to strength and building muscle.

I like to create programs that are diverse and fun, something to make you enjoy your training and feel you are getting the most out of it. Also, I like to build up ideas of what you will be able to do and set goals for future training.

I feel that training has a huge knock-on effect on our everyday lives; using the gym will improve it so that you feel you can live better and feel wonderful.

I believe it is important to get the best understanding of your training because it is not just the body that changes but also the mind. I will help you understand, keep focused, motivated and feel good.

My qualifications

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer
  • CIMSPA 35143

What my Clients say:

"My PT sessions consist of things that I would never have thought to do on my own, they are challenging and fun."

"Though very new to using a gym I have felt supported by Jay every step of the way."

"I find Jay relatable as he has been on a journey of changed and transformation and I want to do the same, he understands what it is like to be the kind of person who never use to use a gym and seeing how he has changed makes me want the same thing and with his help that is what I am doing."

Matt Shepard

How can I help you improve your health?

Being a PT is just the best job, watching people’s confidence grow and achieve things they never thought were possible is very rewarding.

I believe with fitness it's about developing the mindset to achieve, taking you from human to hero.
