With its friendly staff, owners Simon Vickers and Richard Tyler, fitness staff Cameron Smith  and Emma Marshall are on hand to help with all your training needs. We also have a strength coach and kettlebell instructor, Yolandi van der Vyver, Michelle Strydom as a Personal Trainer on board, Leigh Vickers as a trainer and admin/social media lady, as well as our Biokineticist Claudia Cummins.
