Personal Training

Need some motivation? Unsure about how to make the most of the gym equipment here at CBX Gym? Training for a race and need guidance? Struggling to lose weight?

There are many different reasons why people choose one to one training sessions.

Training Plan Examples:

  • Book weekly, fortnightly or monthly sessions.

  • Book a one off session to plan a workout that you can follow on your own in the gym.

  • Book a one off session to show you how to confidently use the gym equipment.

  • Book in for weigh/measure/Body fat calculation. This could be just once a month if you prefer to help keep you on track.

  • Pay for a diet plan for weight loss or muscle building.

  • Small group or one to one running session.

  • Small group nutrition lessons. Share the cost with friends.

Our trainers can tailor a program specifically for you. Just ask!


Jennifer Leach

Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor

Why do I love being a fitness professional?

Because I am really passionate about health, fitness and well-being. I started teaching a couple of years ago as I had always wanted to be a spinning instructor.

I qualified in Exercise to Music first and set up classes in the community for ladies only. I focused on making exercise and healthy living achievable for all ages, but in particular those who were new to exercise. I still have many of those original clients. From there I have gone on to be a Personal Trainer and have continued with my passion to help people to eat better by starting my own healthy food workshops.

I currently work with a wide range of clients, with varying of fitness goals from improving running PB’s, to preparing for social events.


In my home time I am a keen cook, always looking for time saving ways to stay healthy. Just like you I have my own fitness goals, and I am developing my own strength training skills. 

I take a holistic approach to fitness, it is a mind body and soul approach.

 Special interests and skills:

  • Long term adaptations to diet which are simple and effective to achieve

  • Empowering client’s to remain motivated and disciplined

  • SMART training

  • Promotion of healthy lifestyle and self-care

  • Core strength and stability



  • Level 2 ETM

  • Level 2 Gym Instructor

  • SpinCycle

  • Aqua Aerobics

  • Level 3 Personal Training

  • Barre Strength Instructor

  • Qualified Relaxation Practitioner

Bruce Robertson

Personal Trainer and Athletics Coach

I have been sports coaching for over twenty years.  During that time I have coached athletics with North Shields Poly Athletics Club and football with Newcastle United Football in the Community, but in recent years have focussed more on developing general health and fitness.

My current qualifications are:

  • Level 3 Exercise Referral 

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer

  • Level 2 Fitness Instructor

  • Level 2 Athletics Coach

  • Level 2 Kettlebell Instructor

  • Level 2 Circuit Training

  • Level 2 Nutrition

  • NAT Level 1 Anatomy of Exercise and Movement

  • Foundation Certificate in Strength and Conditioning 


I am also doing my Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral at the end of January/start of February.

I have particular interest in strength and conditioning using free weights/medicine balls/kettle bells and resistance bands rather than the general conventional weights machines you find in gyms, preferring to train the body as a whole rather than individual parts.

I work with an ever growing community of athletes and tri-athletes ranging from novices to age group internationals.  

Outside of training others, I still try to run and do triathlons and completed the Cleveland Steelman (2k swim/ 58 mile bike/ 13 mile run) in 2017
