Samm Thorpe – Personal Trainer

I have always been interested in sports and fitness, playing every sport going at school, for local teams up to regional levels. This love of sport lead me into studying Sports Coaching Science to fully understand how training affects the body. I am experienced in different training types, nutrition and how psychology can affect sporting performance and overall health.

After studying the principles of training, I put this into practice as a full-time sports coach and Physical Education teacher. This included motivating those who hated sport to try and take part in some kind of fitness for health benefits and sport specific fitness training for different individuals within teams. The passion for helping people reach their goals motivated me to get into Personal Training and I love every minute! From physically training, to passing on knowledge in a meaningful way to you, relating to your goals, to overcoming barriers which may affect your participation.

I completed my level 3 Personal Training in 2016 and enjoy working with a variety of people, from those who are looking to get into exercise, to improve health, to lose weight or those who are training for a sport. No matter what your target is, feel free to come have a chat with me and see what I can help you to achieve.

Important Message Regarding Covid-19

Booking System

We are not operating an online booking system, access will be as normal.

This is because the square footage of The Gym Club and the quantity of equipment is very large compared to the membership base. In accordance with the government guidelines we must be able to maintain safe social distancing. We calculate we can accommodate 50 people on the gym floor maximum. There has never, even on the busiest of days, been that many people on the gym floor, so we do not envisage any issues in having access as normal. The system knows exactly how many people are in the gym so we can easily monitor the situation. If social distancing does become problematic, we do have an automated booking system that we can switch on, that operates through the existing app.

Air Conditioning

The Gym Club’s air conditioning system is designed for purpose. The building is fully airconditioned throughout. The air is HEPA filtered as it is cooled/heated. In addition there is a separate fresh air in and extract air out system in every individual area/room of the gym. So you can be assured that the air is getting regularly replaced with fresh air all the time.
