Claire

Owner/Trainer

Claire

“The hub is a friendly, independent approachable gym with lots of character.”

After having completed a degree in Marketing and Drama Claire went on to build a career in Sales. Claire opened The Portishead Hub in 2011, moving into the new premises in 2013. During that period Claire had a little girl, Ava in 2012 and a boy, Presley in 2013. Naturally motivated and motivational, Claire returned back to fitness and training and hasn’t looked back. In 2016 she expanded the brand and hub Chepstow was born. Now she manages both gyms and plans to extend the business again in the future. Claire is constantly looking at ways to expand her knowledge and alongside the business is passionate about The Hub Body Transformation courses designed for women.

It almost goes without saying (if you’ve read the above!) that Claire is hard-working and ambitious and dotes on her ‘two little babies’. Having done it herself she also loves helping people get back into fitness, tries to help local charities as much as she can and quite simply “loves the environment of the gym.” Running your own business is challenging, it can be hard to fit everything in and you can’t always please everyone but at the hub we definitely try. Claire credits the talented team that works for her to ensure that the hub is a friendly, independent and approachable gym with lots of character.

Hi! I’m Daisy, your new PT. My passion in life is helping others find empowerment, strength and confidence, the same way I did.

I specialise in weight lifting, cardio strength training and HITT and love nothing more than the feeling I get after a hard session, when I’ve burned off some steam and my muscles are fully exhausted. I’ve helped people achieve their health and fitness goals through at home workouts for the past 6 months, and now I’m ready to take it a step further.

Whether you want to build that J-Lo bum, tone up, lose fat or just generally get your health and fitness up, I’ll be your biggest fan and will be cheering you on and holding your hand, every step of the way.

You can become healthy, strong and toned in an achievable and maintainable way, and have a laugh whilst you do it. Come train with me and TOGETHER, we’ll start the first day of the new and happier YOU

Aimee

Trainer

Aimee

I joined the hub as a Gym Assistant in August 2015 after previously being a member since June 2014. I wasn’t always interested in fitness from a gym aspect until I joined the hub and started to get to know other members and all of the staff, which helped me learn more about training and try out all different types of exercise! I started training at CrossFit Portishead and I absolutely love the variety of weights, gymnastics and general fitness.

Since working at the hub, I have studied for my Level 2 and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications and have taken on various classes across both gyms alongside working full time as the Manager of our Chepstow premises. Teaching classes is so rewarding and it always makes me feel good when I see members pushing themselves and getting a sweat on!

Every day is different, and I love working with such a friendly team who are always motivating each other as well as all the members we see.

I joined the hub as an Apprentice Level 2 Gym Instructor. I am now well on my way to becoming a Level 3 Personal Trainer. I started at the hub back in February 2019, after having a big change in careers. From the age of 6 I played high level football around the country, I started at Cardiff City from age 6 to 11, I then went to Bristol City from age 11 to 14 and finally being transferred over to Newport County, where I stayed until I was 17 and unfortunately my contract wasn’t renewed. After always thinking I would be a professional footballer forever, I suddenly had to re evaluate and find a job I would enjoy and was passionate about – which of course was fitness related. After taking a year off and living abroad, I came home and seen the hub advertise the vacancy and I took the plunge, and I am so glad I did!
In addition, becoming a personal trainer has now led me into a new sport I am very passionate about and I pursue everyday – bodybuilding. My personal goals are to compete within bodybuilding and get as far as I can within the sport.
I have loved every minute of working at the hub, the members and the team make everything worth while.
