Jenny is the gyms head coach and a very highly regarded fitness professional within the industry.
Her story inspires people that all things are possible, having come from being put in a wheelchair in her mid teens after suffering a brain haemorrhage, learning to walk and talk again, and becoming someone who sky dives, wake boards and runs marathons to name just a few.
She also holds a 3rd degree black belt in freestyle kickboxing, a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, loves holidays to anywhere hot, and is a mother to three lively boys (four if you include Buster the dog!)
Aidan is a coach in our academy and currently doing his fitness apprenticeship to become a personal trainer.
He began his time here as 9 year old kickboxer and is now someone who all the academy students look up to having won titles at regional, British, 5 Nations, European and World level.
Aidan's unassuming nature and ability to mentor academy students of all ages makes him a perfect fit for a coach here at P2, who has a very bright future ahead of him as both a competitor and a coach.
He is a 1st degree black belt in freestyle kickboxing and is quite possibly the worst dancer on earth.
Dan is the head coach in our martial arts academy. He previously served as an infantry reconnaissance soldier with The Royal Green Jackets, completing operational tours in Bosnia and Kosovo in the late 1990's.
After leaving the military Dan went on to teach. He studied Sport & Exercise Science at Wolverhampton University and gained his teaching qualifications with Staffordshire University.
Dan holds a 4th degree black belt in freestyle kickboxing, is a registered and qualified boxing coach, a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and is a father to three very lively boys (four...once again...if you include Buster the dog!)
Adele is a coach on the gym floor and group exercise instructor for numerous classes.
Having left her job as a primary school teacher to pursue her passion for fitness as a career, Adele qualified as a gym instructor before going on to complete her courses in Body Combat, Body Pump and Body Balance.
Adele is currently completing her course to become a personal trainer which we know she will excel at. Her warm and friendly character makes her very popular with everyone within the P2 community.
Don't be fooled though if you do one of her classes, she takes no prisoners!
Chloe is a coach on both the gym floor and also in the martial arts academy.
She has been with for over ten years, starting as a 12 year old school girl helping with the KS1 kickboxing classes, and gradually making her own way up through the belt system.
After completing 6th form at school Chloe began her fitness apprenticeship here at P2, quickly passing her gym instructor qualifications before going on to qualify as a personal trainer.
Chloe holds a 3rd degree black belt in freestyle kickboxing and a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and loves cocktails and cottage pie (although not 'always' at the same time)
Summer is a coach in our martial arts academy whilst completing her A-Levels at school.
She began her time with us when she was 10 years old and gained her black belt before joining the coaching staff.
A very keen gym enthusiast, Summer is extremely popular with all students within the academy and is looked up to by many of the KS1 and KS2 age group. Providing a wonderful role model to our younger members.
She holds a first degree black belt in freestyle TKD, is a self confessed nerd in the areas of history and politics (seriously don't start her off!) and is the proud owner of the most ginormous hair.
