Maxine Chutter - Personal Trainer
Maxine is passionate about helping people to create long-term lifestyle changes and empowering people in their choices. She’s interested in using holistic approaches to help build clients’ self-esteem and make the process enjoyable. Maxine also loves to help create healthy habits with an understanding that you don’t have to be perfect.
“I love seeing how an established, regular exercise routine not only enhances their physical and mental health, but infiltrates into many other areas of their lives too. For example, it can benefit their social life, performance at work, personal relationships, self-efficacy and more.”
When she isn’t working, Maxine loves to practise Kundalini Yoga, finding space within her body and a sense of calm. She finds reading a good book really therapeutic and loves to walk as much as possible.

Matt Hill - Personal Trainer
Matt loves training people and helping them achieve what they never thought possible. Even before becoming a personal trainer he would regularly get family and friends to train in the gym and cook healthy meals to show them the positive effects that health and fitness can have on the mind and body.
Matt has had personal experience of lacking in confidence so used the gym to build his mind and body to become a more confident and outgoing person.
“I believe exercise is one of the most basic human needs, so it's brilliant to see when people can bring that back into their regular lifestyle and feel amazing for it.”
Matt loves lifting weights in the gym and doing any crazy fitness challenge that is thrown his way. He also enjoys going for nature walks with his family to rest his mind and spend time with friends.

Laura Hawkins - Personal Trainer
After discovering her love for fitness when struggling with weight and self confidence issues of her own, she realised how much exercise and healthy nutrition can change your life.
“I am passionate about uniting the importance of both mental and physical wellbeing. A healthy body is a healthy mind! :) Exercise and a healthy routine really can change someone’s life. Taking the time to focus on yourself and your body is so vital but something that a lot of people forget to, or don’t find the time to do.”
When not in the gym or training her self, Laura enjoys acting and is regularly taking part in local theatre company performances. She also likes going on countryside walks, exploring new places and traveling, and trying and eating foods from different cultures!
