Chris Nicholls Fitness & Wellbeing Manager

“I have been working in the fitness industry for over 20 years and have always had a passion for health and wellbeing. Some of the clients I have worked with include those going through post-operative rehab, to individuals who are pregnant or who have just given birth. There is no case that doesn’t intrigue me and I thoroughly enjoy helping people reach their short, medium and long-term goals, whatever they may be. My aim is to help clients make exercise a regular and enjoyable part of their lives, using simple but effective habit-creation techniques.”

Rue Kasinathan Personal Trainer

“I used to weigh just north of 120kg (19 stone+) and had little confidence or hope that I could be more than I was. Once I started to lose weight and see a change in myself physically and mentally I knew that I wanted to do this for other people too, that this would be my career path. Over the last 10 years I have lost over 40kg (6 stone+) of fat, gained lean muscle mass and have built a strong cardiorespiratory system. I prescribe a holistic approach to my clients of: Strength, Muscular Size, Cardiorespiratory Endurance, Mobility and Flexibility. I have a background in Strength and Conditioning, and my sessions lean towards a high energy output, with maximal intensity which I believe to be the most efficient way to transform your body.”

Jenson Brasenell Personal Trainer

“I started out in the army,  where hard work, respect and teamwork was instilled into my everyday life. This was also the time where I started getting into calisthenics – a form of strength training.

I have a wide range of knowledge when it comes to fitness and wellbeing that comes from attaining my FA coaching badge, Level 3 Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science and my personal training qualification, so I am well equipped to help you achieve your fitness goals.

When I’m not in the gym, I’m either playing football or out on the golf course.”

Dan Toley Sports Therapist & Personal Trainer

“In 2022 I graduated university with a degree in Sport and Exercise Therapy (BSc). Whilst studying, I also obtained my personal training qualification which included areas such as strength and conditioning, sports conditioning, flexibility training and more. My specialities are in injury treatment and rehabilitation.

I have worked with a wide range of clients in a clinical setting and for a local semi-professional football team where I provided injury assessments, sports massage and rehabilitation, leaving them at a greater level of fitness than they started with.

I’ve always loved sports and have played football since a young age and have a genuine passion for helping people get fit and stay fit. Having experienced a few injuries myself, it was the physiotherapy that really inspired me and made me want to pursue a career in the industry.”

Hotel guests can book a personal training session for £50 an hour.
