Reception Team

Aimie

Receptionist

I am currently undergoing a Level 6 Degree Apprenticeship in Architecture at London South Bank University, when I am able to study and work simultaneously.
As I attended all the schools on School Lane, but recently moved out of the area, I have found working at Yateleys to be a great way of staying connected with the local community.
Fun Fact: Ami taught me to swim before I started School!

Ben

Receptionist

I started my fitness journey a few years ago, when I was introduced to the gym. I have loved training ever since and I am always excited to get stronger day by day.
Currently I’m studying sports and activity, and in the future become a fully qualified personal trainer while also specialising in nutrition. Furthermore, working here at Yateleys Health and Fitness, has enabled me to start my career in the fitness industry.

Megan

Receptionist

I am currently studying Sport and Exercise Science at St Mary’s University in Twickenham. I really enjoy working here at Yateley’s Health and Fitness because, I get to meet so many new people and it has enabled me to get some experience in the sporting industry early on in my career. My hobbies are to play football for my University team and I used to be a competitive swimmer too.

Sue

Receptionist

I have lived locally for over 40 years, and have 3 sons and 3 grandchildren. I have recently retired from a career in banking after 30 years of service. I am a very sociable person and love to chat to other people. I love to dance and enjoy all varieties of music. I was also a competitive swimmer when I was younger. I now love to be outside in my garden and seeing my grandchildren.
Currently I am trying to teach myself the piano which is another passion of mine.

Tom

Receptionist

I’ve been working at Yateleys since I was 16 and enjoy a variety of sports such as basketball, tennis and swimming. I’m also a Lifeguard here and enjoy socialising with new members and swimmers. Working at Yateleys has given me valuable insight into fitness and in the future, and I hope to continue working within the health and fitness industry.

James

Receptionist & PT

I am a qualified fitness instructor and personal trainer I love everything to do with the outdoors and fitness. My favourite sports are Football, Swimming, Golf and American Football and I also have a huge passion for traveling, Australia is my favourite place I have visited so far!

If you ever need any advice in the gym, please do not be afraid to ask.

Jenny

Receptionist & Lifeguard Coordinator

I have worked on reception at Yateleys since 2017 and during that time I have taken on the responsibility of looking after our lifeguards. I am known for talking a lot and enjoy socialising and attending music events with my friends and family. I also work at First Steps pre-school which has equipped me well to handle our PT’s!

Class Coordinator & Class Instructors

Hannah

Class Coordinator & Class Instructor

My journey into fitness started with my love of dancing, a passion I have had since a child.
I began to go to fitness classes as an adult and quickly realised not only did I love participating in group fitness, but that I really wanted to learn how to motivate and inspire other people to enjoy the classes as much as I did. Nearly 20 years later, I have learned many different programmes but currently teach Body Balance, Body Pump and Zumba at Yateleys.
As well as my teaching, I am fortunate to be Group Exercise Co-ordinator at Yateleys. This means I get to work with the best instructors in the area to deliver a fantastic timetable of classes, and also have the opportunity work with our lovely members to help build a true group fitness community.

Alex

Class Instructor

I’m one of life’s Tiggers; I am a bouncy, energetic and enthusiastic motivator.
Inclusivity, comfort and participants’ confidence in taking part in my classes are important to me, so I try to plan and structure my classes for all fitness and co-ordination levels. I absolutely love dance fitness; including as many dance styles and sneaking in as many fitness variations as I can!
I come from a Project Management background and whilst I enjoyed motivating and making things happen, with my restless genes, I much prefer sharing my energy in a studio!

Ami

Fitness & Class Instructor

I was born in Athens and came to England after college to study for my degree in English.
I always like exercising and got involved in lots of activities when my children were younger.
I have been working as a gym and class Instructor for quite a long time and absolutely love what I’m doing. I also love motivating and being with people.
If you haven’t already booked onto one of my classes, please come and give it a go.

Amie

Class Instructor

I’ve recently joined the Yateley fitness team, who’ve been so welcoming.
I’ve been on such a fitness journey the last 10 years it’s been incredible! I’m extremely passionate about how important exercise is it for your mental health and well-being.
I make my classes as fun as possible so you don’t realise how hard you are working out. My favourite saying is exercise in disguise.
I look forward to welcoming you at Yateleys Health and Fitness and join you guys on your fitness journey.

Becky

Class Instructor

My fitness journey started over 15 years ago, teaching all things studio and gym from aerobics to water aerobics to personal training and many other bits and pieces.
I was encouraged to try Pilates and honestly once I started a Pilates journey there’s just no looking back, I’m a bit of a body and movement geek so I am constantly learning and trying to add to my knowledge base.
I love teaching Pilates as I can see the benefits it has to everyone that comes.

Katie

Class Instructor

I am Katie and there are many strings to my bow but most notable at Yateleys I teach Group Cycle and Pilates.
I love what I do and I hope it shows in my classes where I create a friendly and inclusive atmosphere: everyone is welcome no matter what ability.

Liz

Class Instructor

I have been teaching various types of exercise classes for nearly 25 years! I started attending exercise classes at my local leisure centre when I was just a teenager and thought how I’d really like to be up the front motivating other like minded people.
Exercise for me is a way of life, I couldn’t just not do it as it makes me feel so much better mentally and physically.
About 15 years ago I qualified as a Les Mills instructor. As a Les Mills instructor we have to attend training to stay certified plus learn new choreography every quarter. I am now qualified to teach Les Mills BodyBalance.

Monique

Class Instructor

I’ve been teaching since 2010. I started because my friend was an instructor, it took me a while to pluck up the courage to do the course, as I was really shy.
Best thing I’ve done as it’s made me come out of my shell and every year I’ve been teaching I learn more about fitness.
I’m currently studying to be a PT.
I taught lots of zoom classes during lockdown. I’ve also started weight training in the gym 3 times a week.

Personal Trainers

Chris

Personal Trainer & Class Instructor

You cannot transform your relationship with food, exercise or your body without first changing your mindset.”
As an instructor and coach, I believe that education and mindset change are more empowering than exercise alone and so this is incorporated into everything we do together.
I have been working at Yateleys Health & Fitness since 2013. During that time I have specialised in Lower Back Pain, Pre and Post Natal Training, Yoga and Postural Analysis & Correction.

Gareth

Fitness & Class Instructor and Personal Trainer

I have been working in the fitness industry since 2007 and qualified as a personal trainer in 2009. I started at Yateleys in 2018.
I have worked in a range of fitness environments from commercial gyms to bootcamp and transformation centres. This has helped me learn how to coach people and a wide range of techniques.
My aim as a trainer is to give my clients the information and techniques to be able to train themselves safely.
I also run 6 week challenges here, these are not all about losing inches but focus on strength and moving effectively.

Matt
