    Hi I’m Chris, I’m a certified fitness trainer and a Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist, so not only do I train to feel good and healthier in my skin but I also have the knowledge to train and manage low back pain and address postural concerns you might have. 


    As a trainer, my aim is to help you connect with your inner self and to provide a training space as a safe space where you can let go, let your inner child play and embody through movement. Also, I can teach you how to manage and strengthen areas in relation to a healthy posture.


    Whatever your goals are, I am here to support, encourage, inspire and empower you in helping you achieve and overcome any barriers/obstacles you might have. 


    My mission as a PT:



    To empower and inspire people through mindful exercise and fitness. To create and promote fitness not just as a means of building gains or losing weight but also as a means of living a healthier lifestyle, medicine, learning and growing, building one’s confidence and overcoming mental blocks, to be the best version you can be and a reminder that anything you put your heart and mind to is achievable. A healthy mind, a healthy body. We exercise to ignite our energy.


    I look forward to working with you 🤗

    Hey, I'm Barney (He/Him) Gym Manager/PT!
    As a queer trans man, I want to create a safe space where folks can learn to move their bodies without fear of judgment and outside the realms of toxic gym culture– instead, we’ll focus on feeling stronger mentally and physically.

    I work with a range of clients, but my particular passion is supporting queer folk, those with marginalised bodies, gender-affirming body recomposition, and those with health conditions. 

    I am also the creator of Queerasize, a small-group PT class, aimed specifically at the queer community. These sessions are more financially accessible than 1:1 PT and a great introduction to gym-based activity. 

    I currently have space for full-time 1:1 Personal Training– if you would like a free consultation, drop me a DM or follow the link in my bio!

    Hi, I'm Kath. I've been a personal trainer for just over 5 years and run Cynisca Personal Training and The Bicep Brotherhood. I have a level 4 Strength & Conditioning qualification and I'm just about to start my degree in Sport & Exercise Science with Brighton University. 


    My training passions lie in the realms of functional fitness, lifting heavy things, running around in a sweaty mess and just generally feeling like a bad ass! 


    The core values of my business are courage and kindness. Regardless of your level of experience or ability I will provide you with a safe space to explore your capabilities within the gym. It is my goal to provide each and every client with the knowledge and confidence to stand proud as who they are, in or out of the gym environment. 


    As an openly gay woman, I find myself working largely with the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. I have also recently established The Bicep Brotherhood. This is a group exclusively for the transgender or non-binary person and provides a safe space to enter into the world of fitness without fear of judgement or prejudice. I provide online training programmes specifically aimed at masculinising the physique. Our community provides tremendous support and encouragement to all of it's members, not only in terms of gym stuff but also all things transitioning, medical or otherwise. We discuss everything from the best surgeons to the best place to buy pants! 


    I currently have space for in person and online PT clients, and also plenty of space available within The Brotherhood. For more information please check out my pages @cyniscapt and @the_bicep_brotherhood

    Hi I’m Lou. 😝 @louiseptuk 

    Owner of @thezonebristol and @thehideoutbristol & @sakura_bristol


    I am super passionate about my clients mental well-being and make sure that this is at the forefront of our sessions, alongside hitting the goals they want to hit and keeping the sessions fun and enjoyable. 


    I am level 3 qualified in GP Exercise Referral and I’m also studying towards my Level 4 In Low Back Pain. 

    I’m really looking forward to helping a new set of clients to relieve pain and try and better their lives as much as I can. 


    I currently have some 1:1 availability during school hours and some small group session availability during the evenings. I am also running 6 week beginners weight lifting courses. Please message me for details.
