Jenn Howell

I’m a fully certified Personal Trainer from the North East of England and fitness has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I’ve been through my own transformations and experimented with various types of training and nutritional programmes to build a knowledgeable portfolio for a range of cases. Whether you’d like to trim down, tone up, lose weight or simply maintain, I can design a programme that works for you!

I’ve been described as contagiously bubbly and infectiously energetic and you may find some of my classes a little bit quirky…  but my aim is to always make you feel at ease whilst giving you a supportive push towards your goals!

Bruce Robertson

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 2 Fitness Instructor

  • Level 2 Athletics Coach

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer

  • NAT Level 1 Anatomy of Exercise and Movement


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

Louise McDonald

Hi, I’m Louise and I’m full of energy!

My Personal Training experience for the last 18 years has been mostly in Sydney/Australia, where I ran my own business and also worked closely with two Celebrity Trainers assisting them with their huge member base, offering programming assistance and on going guidance throughout their fitness journeys.

I live my passion every day, I am focused and committed to assisting those that need motivation and I believe it is my responsibility to nurture and empower with knowledge, education and clarity.. all with less seriousness than how that sounded!

Wellness, as an overview, incorporates so many aspects and I believe it’s vital to work on all of them to achieve the greatest of results.

I work with absolutely every level of fitness and realise how daunting starting out can be too. It’s at the top of my list of priorities to make sure that all of my clients feel super comfortable and we have heaps of fun along the way!

I’m very easy going as a person and your goals are my number one focus! Come up and say hi :-)

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
