Russell Knight – Personal Trainer

I have always been an active person and have taken part in many sports and events including football, cricket, golf, half marathons, marathons, multi distance triathlons. Aside from team sports I have explored the varied avenues of adventure sports. I love the idea of planning and achieving something previously thought impossible. I always like to have something in the diary way in the future that I am working towards. You can read about my latest Scottish experience in the link. The next challenge is hopefully still on the cards! Also listed below … The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.

With over 20 years in the fitness industry I would like to think that I am well placed to help you and encourage you to improve your fitness levels at a rate that is appropriate to you. It doesn’t matter what level you start from, it is my passion to help you improve you and your ability, without comparing you to anyone else.

I have been personal training for over 16 years now and have built a great team around me. We all work together to offer you the best service possible. As a collective we strive to help others improve their quality of life.

Will Knight – Personal Trainer

I’ve always been a very active person with a love for fitness. I enjoy training clients to achieve their fitness goals by creating a fun and effective program which not only educates them but helps them to reach their potential.

I have played different sports throughout my life which sparked my interest in training, and in turn helped me pursue a career in the fitness industry. Training is not just a way to stay in shape, it builds a good base to improve your lifestyle in a positive way.

I hope my passion for health and fitness shows in the way I talk to clients and members by giving them different tips and tricks to improve their workouts.

Tommy Penney – Personal Trainer

I have always said that if I can help one person achieve their fitness goals then I have a achieved a lifelong ambition. I am now in a fortunate enough position where I get to do this on a day to day basis.

My philosophy focuses on continual lifelong learning as I work towards enhancing the well-being of my clients by empowering them with the knowledge, skills, support and motivation to assist and inspire them on their journey to a healthier life.

Together we will transform your quality of life through tailored personal fitness activities and the integration of guided fitness programmes, to make your health goals become a reality, in a caring, fun and friendly environment.

Ed Andrew – Personal Trainer

I have been working within the fitness industry as an instructor since 2016, qualifying as a Level 3 Personal Trainer just over three years ago. I have a passion for helping others achieve their fitness goals – through improving their physical health, to maintaining a healthy mental-health mindset.

I thoroughly enjoy instructing classes (with great tunes if I do say so myself), as well as guiding customers through 1 to 1 personal training sessions. I believe in making fitness fun, enjoyable and progressive, to suit all ages, abilities and goals. One of my favourite quotes that I resonate with is – “Don’t start a fitness routine that has an expiration date, focus on a lifestyle that will last forever.”

James Lee – Personal Trainer

I have worked in the fitness industry since 2015 and qualified as a personal trainer in 2017. I have completed a BSc Human Nutrition degree, which has lead me to become an accredited nutritionist.
I have a real focus for combining exercise and nutrition to help people achieve and maintain their health and fitness goals. I thoroughly enjoy supporting and motivating people throughout their fitness journey and seeing them succeed in reaching their goals.

Dylan MacIsaac – Receptionist

I have always enjoyed being active and taking part in sports, so being part of a gym team is a familiar environment for me.

I enjoy helping the gym and physios to grow by doing the behind the scenes work that allows them to spend more time with clients/members.

There is a real community feel here at Elite, and I look forward to taking part in the upcoming group events with members.
