Our highly motivated and dedicated trainers are here to guide and support you to reach your goals.
Founder & Personal Trainer
10 years ago I was running a building company and fitting in as much exercise as possible around a stressful, pressured job and I was very unhappy. So I changed my life!
My passion for fitness and health and my love of competitive boxing, pushed me towards personal training as a career so I qualified and my desire to open a gym came about. Rock has developed over 10 years, from an outdoor business to opening the Rock Studio and with a great team working with me, we have developed a brand that gives clients more!
Rock is More than a Gym!
I am passionate about changing my clients lifestyles, increasing confidence and improving health. I have a special interest in hyper-mobility, rehabilitation of injuries and women’s health. I believe everyone should lift weights and that everyone can with the correct coaching. I am a soft tissue therapist and offer massage and assessments in the Rock Sports Injury Room.
I had a total hysterectomy and bilateral oophorectomy in December 2019 and I am now in surgical menopause. We offer online plans and have a training APP that all clients can join for personalised coaching.
Personal Trainer & Studio Manager
In December 2017 I turned my love of exercise into a career and qualified as a PT. I joined Rock in 2018 and have never looked back!
Since becoming part of the team, I have learnt new skills on the job, have furthered my knowledge by qualifying as an England Athletics Run Leader and in July 2020 I became the Rock Studio Manager. I have a wide client base ranging from runners, weight loss clients and those looking to make strength and confidence gains.
My main love is running and I love to introduce the sport to others. There’s nothing better than to help people learn to love running and watch them develop. I am the Rock Running Club coach alongside Emma and between us we have created a fun and friendly environment for all levels of ability. You should check our Facebook Page and definitely come and try us out!
Teaching people to make lifestyle and mindset changes and showing them how to enjoy exercise are definitely among the reasons I enjoy my job! Watching the progress of clients from the first time they walk in the gym door is very rewarding and at Rock we get to work with some lovely amazing people!
In terms of my own training, I have a MASSIVE love of running! I compete in a variety of distances throughout each year varying from 5K to my first Ultra Marathon “The Ultra Tour of Edinburgh” in October 2018. I crossed the line a very respectable second woman! To compliment my running I also love to strength train – kettlebells being my favourite. The addition of strength training will make a huge impact on my running, as it has mine. If you need any help or advice then I am always ready to talk running!!
I look forward to seeing you all at the gym!

I’m a strength & conditioning coach, I love the infusion of resistance training layered with cardio for epic results.
I have experience in hypertrophy for muscle gain and weight management for fat loss. I believe that this approach can be tailored to reach each clients goals.
My views on health & fitness reach wider than just exercise and nutrition, I advocate the importance of mental health & self-care.
I use my social platform Instagran @kayleighfit_ to spread my message.
Qualifying as a PT has been one of the most important qualifications I ever succeeded in. It made me realise how much I really love helping people, not only to achieve their goals, but to change their whole life. There is no better feeling in my opinion. This is what I push towards for everyone who walks through the door at Rock!
My own training mainly consists of Boxing/Strength and Conditioning based workouts, as this is what I have been used to from my days of competitive boxing. I won 2 titles during my Unlicenced boxing career, boxing all over the country which taught me a lot in regards to training and life itself. I still keep myself healthy and live and breathe and clean lifestyle thanks to my boxing days.
Therefore this is what I try implement on my clients. My sessions are a great stress reliever, very intense, whilst also trying to keep the training fun, which is the most important part!
Having led a very full and varied life and I am incredibly passionate about physical and mental wellbeing. I believe both are linked and integral to achieving self-satisfaction and happiness.
I recently retired from the Police Service having served over 33 years in a variety of roles across my Military Police Service and Hertfordshire Police. My speciality was Child Protection and the safeguarding of young people which was both challenging and rewarding. I loved working with young and vulnerable people, I genuinely feel I made a difference and I achieved numerous awards, commendations for both policing and charity work.
I am very experienced and qualified in Ju Jitsu having been practicing it for over 40 years. I have been fortunate enough to train and teach both children and adults all over the world. My Ju Jitsu training led onto Muay Thai and Western boxing allowing me to train in both Thailand and Vietnam. Combining my martial arts skills and Policing experience, my self-defence training is reality based with a focus on female safety.
I believe setting goals is key to achieving personal aspirations and have completed numerous challenges including 15 marathons. I have a passion for the outdoors and have progressed this to leading groups on Mountain challenges all over the UK.
Over the last few years I have struggled with my own mental health and I believe that exercise has been my saviour. I feel strongly about lifestyle change and improvement in both physical and mental wellbeing. My goal is now to create a purpose for others – to help people to make life changes and have a fitter, healthy existence and a happier life…
I will always strive to create a programme in line with your goals and aspirations at the centre. I believe with my support I can better equip you and support you in your new found venture
Assistant Run Coach
I’ve been a runner for a long time, taking part in local events for about 15 years, with a few halves and a couple of London Marathons thrown in too, they were all very social events and a huge support to my mental health, not at all serious or competitive.
My love for running and fitness upped a notch in 2020 when I signed up for my first ultra event…. Race to The Stones! The experience and total enjoyment I had whilst training and during the event really sparked my interest in the details around running and all it involves, and it led me to train as an England Athletics Run Leader.
I currently help Gayle with the Run Club at Rock on a Sunday, it’s a very relaxed and social run and everyone is very welcome.
