Owner, Matt Richardson
Specializes in weightlifting and addressing movement dysfunction.
Dan has been in the fitness industry for 8 years. His speciality lies in weightlifting and addressing movement dysfunction. Dan is quite a perfectionist (in a good way) and takes great pleasure in helping clients learn to lift well and safely.
His attention to detail is what makes him a fantastic trainer. He is great at communicating and uses a variety of visual, verbal and kinetic coaching methods to get desired response, whether it be teaching somebody their first squat or a seasoned weightlifter fine tuning their technique.
Having had a period of time away from weightlifting due to injury, Dan has explored other areas of training within his rehabilitation program that now aid him hugely in working with clients who may be coming back from injury themselves. He works with a wide range of clients to have varying limitations that means programming has to be fine-tuned to meet their individual goals.
His current training is focused towards correcting structural imbalances through rehabilitation and strength work. with his aim of getting back to Olympic Weightlifting.

Elin is a Level 3 Certified Personal Trainer with a passion for using exercise as a tool for positive mental health.
She has a focus on overall health and wellbeing as opposed to purely physical results like weight loss and body transformation. She believes that these are simply a by-product of exercise, and tries to encourage her clients to shift their mindsets from aesthetic transformation onto the positive physical and mental health benefits.
Elin says “I think that exercise is one of the highest forms of self-care. For me, feeling like I am getting stronger not only makes me feel like a bad-ass, but makes me feel so happy and confident in my own body. Most importantly, it helps me clear my head and deal better with the stresses of daily life. I myself have been sucked into the trap of exercising purely for aesthetics, and the truth is that I was never satisfied. Now I exercise because I love how it feels to get stronger, fitter and more flexible. My mission is to steer people away from diet culture and towards joyful movement!”
Elin is planning to team up with Verity to run some projects for those suffering with mental illnesses in the community. They want to create a safe space where people can learn new skills, do something for themselves and most of all have a good time meeting likeminded individuals.
