I’m Michael. The owner and founder of Winchester Fit Club! I'm a Personal Trainer, Run Leader with England Athletics and have a passion for using your own body as the one tool you need master to succeed in health and fitness.

I believe that fitness should be affordable, accessible to all and a foundation for a happy, healthy community and after moving to Winchester I found that this was missing. So, along with my wife Laura and Coach Andy we started this incredible club. It’s been a brilliant journey so far and I’m excited for what’s to come.

I began in the Wellness industry in 2016 with a plan to help people get fitter and healthier.  The next year I was involved in the newly formed, but now multiple award winning Winchester Fit Club, which we all now know and love.


I gained my qualification as a Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach and I have also gained certifications in Nutrition, Human Mechanics & Physical Therapy, Workout Techniques & Delivery, and Life Coaching. This not only supports my passion for wellness, but enables me to apply all of this to what I deliver for our members. 

I'm Emma, a qualified fitness instructor and volunteer coach for Winchester Fit Club. 

I started going along to fit club sessions about three years ago and loved the sessions and WFC so much that I decided to train as a fitness instructor and now run Monday evening sessions out and about in Winchester!
