    Jonny Murray

    Jonny, originally from Hull is a history and politics graduate who had a successful corporate career in renewables.  However, like many of us he realised that there is more to life and embarked on his own fitness journey, getting into shape and discovering how physical fitness can transform a person both physically and mentally.  He loved the journey and in changing himself, realised that he was passionate about all things fitness.  He therefore gave up the corporate world to re-train as a personal trainer and CrossFit Coach.  Jonny is a new addition to our team but already, we can see that he loves being able to use his gym and crossfit disciplines to really ‘mix it up’ for our members in both classes and 121 coaching.   He is a natural born competitor so knows how to enthuse and motivate himself and others.  Jonny truly believes that we can all better our life circumstances by taking simple steps to become both physically fitter and mentally stronger.

    “There is nothing more satisfying than helping empower people to push outside of their comfort zones and see them realise the true potential for brilliance within! No matter where you are on your fitness journey, whether you are setting foot in the gym for the very first time, or have been an experienced athlete for many years, my priority is to encourage, envision, and help you reach your goals.”

    Emma Mackey, Pheonix Fitness PT

    I started enjoying fitness in 2011 and I decided to take a huge leap of faith to have a career change to study to become a PT in 2018. I started my PT journey by running weekly Bootcamps and I quickly gained some clients from there. I have been working at Energy gym now for 6 years and I still run 2 classes per week, alongside my 1-2-1 PT sessions. I have helped a variety of clients with their running technique, strength and fitness goals and have gained various certificates along the way.  I firmly believe in the importance of mobility training which I use myself, plus with all my clients, to enable them to move as pain free as possible, then together with strength training, I can help them to become stronger and to reach their goals. I have recently qualified as a Functional Range Conditioning coach and with this new knowledge I hope to be able to help clients to improve their range of motion, to build strength within that range, allowing them to move better for longevity.  Daily movement is essential, over and above everything else and I truly believe this. If you are interested in becoming stronger, moving better, or simply enjoy circuit classes, then please get in touch.

    Andrew Watson, Golf Fitness Coach

    My name is Andrew Watson, I am a TPI Certified personal trainer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Golf has always been a constant in my life… from hitting my first golf ball at the age of 5, to competing for Turnhouse Golf Club’s junior section. However, when I was 17, the opportunity to a start career in football arose and it was too good to turn down, meaning golf – temporarily – took a back seat. Fast forward 6 years to the age of 23 and unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances in the form of a cardiac arrest, it was football that had to take a back seat and once again, golf became the constant in my life. Following on from this, I embarked on a new career in personal training. Once I had 10 years experience behind me and several years of research into the physical training underlying great golfers, I decided to combine the two things I loved: golf and fitness. This was already something I had been incorporating into my own fitness training and using to enhance my golf. Through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) I am now a fully qualified specialist in helping people to optimise their bodies and their range of movement for golf.
