Daniel Betts

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

  • I’m Level 3 qualified personal trainer  that has had a passion for health and fitness for most of my life.
  • I believe exercise shouldn’t be a chore, it should be enjoyed, so I would ensure any personal training session or programme would be created with that in mind and tailored personally  around what you are wanting achieve and how you like to train.
  • I can help with all aspects of training, whether you are looking to tone up, gain muscle or lose weight. I can also provide advice on nutrition which can assist in helping to achieve your goals.

What my Clients say:

"It is no overstatement to say that starting personal training sessions with Dan has had a hugely profound impact on my physical and psychological wellbeing. Having almost no experience of organised exercise or the gym environment, I was incredibly anxious about attending a gym. However, Dan's professionalism, energy, courtesy, humour and caring nature in all our meetings, quickly put me at ease. Dan demonstrates his extensive knowledge of all aspects of training through well organised and effective programmes of exercise that are continually adapted to provide an holistic approach to reaching your goals. Every component of his sessions are consistently fun, diverse, challenging and engaging with their rationale's explained to a high standard. Through Dan's support and guidance with exercise and nutrition, I have lost 15kg in 11 weeks and have a new sense of confidence and motivation to live a healthier lifestyle. I can unreservedly recommend Dan to others." - Club Member


Max Fillingham

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Helping people reach their goal is my number one priority. With personal training programs and working close with my clients, I make sure I get the most out of them every training session.  With my wide range of knowledge I can assure you that you will not only achieve your goal but enjoy the journey along the way.

Alongside my PT qualifications I am also a qualified swimming instructor. Swimming is a great form of exercise which I think is greatly underused.

The benefits of exercise and a healthy lifestyle go much further than just looking good. Whatever help you need I can offer the motivation, support and guidance needed so you can achieve your goal.


What my Clients say:

“Max is focused on helping me achievement my goals. I find that he makes every session challenging but somehow fun too.
He's a good motivator with fountains of knowledge of routines and technique.  I will not hesitate to recommend max to people out there looking for an experienced motivational personal trainer that succeeds with client’s goals.  Highly recommend"

Greg Sheard

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

"With over 10 years’ experience of training myself and others I am now one of the top Personal Trainers within the Nuffield organization. My aim as a Personal Trainer is to make your fitness training programme varied and effective, and above all for you to enjoy yourself and achieve the results you want.

I love to focus my client’s training not only in a gym environment but also offering outdoor workouts including running and boot camp style training. Training sessions could also include: weight training, cardio, boxing and grit style studio sessions. Intensity will depend on your current fitness levels but from this you will become healthier, fitter and stronger. I also run our recovery plus program which helps clients recover from any injury/surgery they may have had, this could be useful to yourself if you have a specific area that is weak and needs to be focused on within your training program."

What my Clients say:

"Greg is a great personal trainer, he has the knack of pushing me forward, by encouragement & keeping me motivated. He really listens & I'm much fitter & stronger than I have ever been. He encouraged me to start running & has run the Wakefield 10k with me for last 2 years; 10 minutes quicker on second attempt!  He's really flexible & will fit in sessions when it suites me nothing is too much trouble. I really enjoy sessions even when I don't want to go he keeps me going!" - Liz Cook

"I have been training with Greg for about 2 years and I can say that he has kept the training both varied and challenging which has kept me motivated, and ultimately, reach my fitness goals. As a PT trainer Greg is very accommodating in working with you and listening to what you want to get out of the training and really flexible with training times." - Nigel Cox

I highly recommend Jen and feel very lucky to have found her” - Debbie Dallison
