MEET THE TRAIN STATION GYM TEAM
DirectorJames became a PT because he realised he got on very well with people and was able to build their confidence through exercise whilst having a bit of a laugh. He originally trained as an actor however when he didn’t get the role of James Bond, he decided to deny the acting world of his talents and handed them to the fitness industry instead.
He has a Dip (Hons) in Sports Therapy and is further qualified in Advance Kettlebell. He is also a Pre-Hab Trainer and Kaiser Trainer.
His style of training works multiple joints and muscles whilst at the same time leaving you gasping for breath and his philosophy is not spending hours in the gym. Abbreviated training every time. Get in. Get on. Get out.
ManagerMike started working with Phoenix Fitness Group in 2008 after qualifying as a PT with Premier Training. He now manages their The Train Station Gym which opened in 2013.
He loves all sorts of exercise. The more varied the better. Endurance running, hill sprints, gymnastics, boxing and weightlifting and even (shh) a spot of CrossFit.
He believes that every session should be varied, fun and effective.

Nikkita fell upon personal training after being encouraged to go out to Spain with a friend to the European Institute of Fitness to train as a PT. What started out as a hobby and a bit of fun 10 years ago has turned into a full blown fitness career.
Nikkita works mainly with women and has a varied training style. Core training is her thing alongside kettlebells, weights, running and walking her beloved doggie. She is currently a full time BSc Counselling student as is passionate about mental health issues.
She likes going on active holiday’s such as surfing or walking and her philosophy is that life is short so do things that will help you live a life you enjoy!
Personal TrainerSteph used to have a stressful city job in finance when she saw the light and moved over to the fitness industry. She has a passion for health and fitness and decided she wanted to help others in that field so trained as a PT with certificates in nutrition, sports massage and pre/post natal.
She likes HIIT and core work and has recently become a yoga convert. Her philosophy when it comes to exercise is to look at the bigger picture, concentrating on mind and body balance. She advocates good nutrition and is a big fan of avocados!
Personal TrainerSarah is our resident CrossFitter. She has a Level 3 Personal Training qualification and is currently studying a BSc in Physiotherapy. She loves working her clients with weighted compound movements to build strength and raise the heart rate in a totally different way.
She works individually with clients to find and exercise style that suits them. Her philosophy is that exercise needs to be something that you enjoy as well as having something to work towards.
Trish has gone from being a receptionist at an Italian food importers to gaining Level 3 qualifications in Personal Training and Pole Fitness. You can sometimes see her perform pull ups or ‘the flag’ which is an indication of her incredible strength. She loves HIIT and weights, as strength in women is something she aspires to.
She loves working with female clients encouraging them to do more weights as she is proof in the pudding that being strong does not mean you have to get bulky!
