Meet your coaches!
Nathaniel has been coaching fitness for over ten years now, and has worked as a Strength & Conditioning coach and as a head coach within the world of functional fitness.
He’s a big believer that whatever you do in the gym should maximise your life outside of it and doing that as part of a community can add years to your life. The gym is not a place to punish yourself but a place to build yourself up. One of his big passions is coaching young people and helping them become excited about the gym and how to see it as part of a healthy life.
