PERSONAL TRAINER AND FOUNDER OF BASTION FITNESS
Hi my name is Mike, personal trainer and founder of Bastion Fitness.
I’ve been working within the sport and fitness industry for the last seven years now and I can honestly say that none of it has really felt like work. Getting to see the joy in people’s faces when they finally take down those hard fought goals is what makes this job so special. Whether it’s that first pull-up, fitting into those jeans purchased in 2008. It’s just awesome to see and even more awesome that I get to be a part of it.
Personally I like walking, weightlifting and brazilian jiu jitsu to keep my mind, body and soul happy and healthy. Outside of the realms of fitness though I’m a huge fan of video games, books and all kinds of art. So much so that the reason I first stepped foot in a gym was to be fit and strong like my favorite video game characters!
My goal with Bastion is to educate, inspire and help my fellow gamers, geeks and introverts take that first step into the magical world of health and fitness, to lose weight, build muscle, strength and confidence while bloody enjoying the whole process.
Hi, I’m Lewis. I am 23 and like to partake in exercise regularly, particularly football. I recently passed my level 2 fitness instructor course, and I am next planning on completing my personal training qualifications. Excited to start taking classes and meet all our members! See you soon.
CO-FOUNDER DIRECTOR & INSTRUCTOR
It’s been an amazing few months working with All Strong and they have gotten some team together! I now some of you already know me but I just wanted to take this chance to introduce myself to some of the new-comers. My name is Claire. I am a mommy to an amazing 3 year old and we love going out and keeping busy. We’re usually out walking the dog, out on the bikes, or spending time together as a family. I first qualified as an aerobics instructor in 2014 while I was working as a lifeguard and swimming teacher. I qualified as a Zumba instructor around this time too. Ever since then, fitness has been a very big part of my life, and from being someone who exercised VERY rarely, I was hooked. I am very passionate about a healthy lifestyle and keen to encourage others to give it a try too. I am currently working on getting qualified as a gym instructor, and following that I hope to do my Level 3 Personal Trainer. Look forward to seeing you all.

I am a keen footballer and I’m working towards my level 2 fitness instructor course so I can teach classes at the gym. You will see me at the gym! I look forward to meeting you all soon.
I love lifting heavy and my own training focuses on compound lifts and increasing my strength. However, I do also enjoy working up a sweat in my sweat class- Step it Up! It’s been amazing instructing such a big energy class and seeing people push themselves and being proud of their achievements. It has also been great fun writing articles for Women’s Wellness group on the All Strong app and getting involved in the Fitness to Feel Better programmes. I am also excited to have contributed to our relaxation section on the app with some tapping mediations.
Hobbies: Outside of work, I enjoy reading fiction. I have two degrees in English Literature and just obviously love books. I also enjoy finding yummy vegan recipes and cooking them for my boyfriend and family.
