Hi I’m Sam. I’m a qualified personal trainer, clinical and remedial sports therapist, Pilates teacher and sports masseuse; a bit of a mouthful as a job title but I feel that this combination provides the best possible service to you; being able to spot body imbalances and correcting them is a great help in avoiding injury, especially if you are new to exercise or changing the amount of exercise you are doing.

Having recovered from injury and weight gain myself in the past I know how important it is to access good training and nutritional advice; I am a qualified clinical weight loss practitioner therefore as well as physical training our sessions can be full of information if you wish.

I am a passionate middle distance runner (I am a coach in our sister company the Brighton running school), and in a previous life I was heavily involved in all things equine from competitive riding through to equestrian business management + studies. I am keen to practice what I preach and try to attain a healthy work life balance, I do work very hard but I try and counter this with quality time with family, friends, as much travel as possible and great food!

Hi I’m Connor, I have been fortunate enough to combine my passion for sports (mine is rugby) with my work. After graduating with a degree in Strength and Conditioning science I worked as a strength coach for the London Irish RFC, London Wasps and England Women’s Rugby, in more recent years I’ve relocated my work to the coast, had a family and decided to take a post as the lead strength and conditioning coach for the Sussex cricket team. I am thoroughly enjoying the challenge and variety that each day brings me.

Whilst working with top class athletes is great, I am acutely aware they are not a reflection of the population at large (myself included!!). Armed with a wealth of knowledge from nutritional requirements to biomechanics, human physiology and anatomy I get equal, if not more, satisfaction from sharing this with my personal training clients. I support and guide them in building a healthy, lean and strong physique to empower, compete, look good, feel great and challenge themselves!

Hi I’m Kirstin, I own Brightonfit and I worked as a personal trainer in Brighton for over 20 years. Whilst you wont see me out in our studio’s training clients these days I will pick the phone up to you or respond to your initial website inquiry, write our blog and am still intrinsically involved in the running of the show!

I am an ‘all rounder’ fitness- wise these days; I like to combine gym work and outdoor training (predominantly running), although in my 20s and 30s I  was lucky enough to have a long career as a semi professional kickboxer. Midway through that I set up a not for profit boxing club which targeted socially deprived youths in Brighton and Hove; we took referrals from Brighton’s youth offending and Social services.

Recently I have become a student again and after completing a masters in Biomedical Engineering I am now pursuing a PhD in the same field where I am designing the next generation of bionic limbs for amputees (humans and dogs). I find this work is extremely rewarding in a very different way to personal training but oh boy does my body miss being active all day! I now completely understand all the complaints you used to walk into my studio with – my back hurts from sitting, I am battling  postural problems and so the list goes on!

Hi my name is David, I have a huge passion for all sports but especially rugby. Historically I took things a little more seriously, playing professionally for Yorkshire Carnegie, Ulster rugby, Bristol and Doncaster Knights but after an injury and a chance to reflect I decided I could make the biggest change in the sport helping up and coming players.

I gained an MSc in strength and conditioning and rely heavily on this knowledge to offer a top class personal training service. I also do a few hours for Sussex cricket, working with the youth development scheme (Aldridge academy) and women’s cricket…..and of course I still play rugby!….although not quite at the same level as before.

I get fantastic results with motivated people particularly interested in building strength, fitness or to reach a sports target such as your first 10km run.

I operate one to one sessions from our Brighton and Hove private gyms, your home or a local park and I can help you really enjoy sport and getting fit as well as reaching your goals

Personal training Brighton testimonials:

  • I began looking for a female personal trainer in Brighton and found Kirstin, after 18 months of personal training I reached my target weight loss of over 3 stone. I now maintain a healthy lifestyle and recently married my childhood sweetheart in a size 10 wedding dress! *

  • Personal training in Brighton with Brightonfit has been a very pleasant experience. I had really only been a cyclist before I began fitness training with them and within 12 months of training in the comfort of my own home I have completed a 10km run, comfortably squatted my own body weight and even become a fan of burpees! *

  • I was working in an office, out of shape, and unhappy. A friend bought me some Brighton personal trainer sessions to get started with and I can honestly say it has been the best experience of my life. In fact I lost so much weight (3 stone) and became so fit in the 2 years of sessions that I changed my job and am now training to be a fully qualified nutritionalist. *

  • As a fitness instructor in Brighton my time is so pressed, its hard to get time to find to put towards my own exercise. I decided to look for a personal trainer in Brighton and Hove and came across Brightonfit; what attracted me to them was their Strength coaches as Olympic lifting was something I had always wanted to learn. I am 9 months in and feel amazing! My lifting technique is improving all the time and I cannot recommend the Brighton personal trainers at Brightonfit enough! *
