Our Coaches

Chris Gell

I started my own fitness journey when I was 29. I was fed up of feeling out of shape, I didn’t like the way I looked and I didn’t like my lifestyle.

This was the moment I changed, with my mental health not at it best, I made the decision.

I joined a gym, I got myself a Personal Trainer and we made a plan. I trained hard, I controlled my nutrition, changed my habits and started to make progress. Yet, I was still unhappy.

Then I made more decisions, not easy ones but I made them, as I had to change. I studied to become a Personal Trainer, I moved to Manchester and I became a better version of myself. I found balance with work, nutrition, recovery and life. I have become a better person and I help others to make the changes they want to become better themselves. The journey is not easy, you have barrier, good days and bad days but what counts is you trust the process and you keep yourself accountable with a coach.

I never thought I would be the competitive type until I came across Hyrox. A hybrid programme of training combining strength, functional, cardio and endurance. Then the Hyrox race itself, competing with thousands of people in a race where the only person to beat is yourself.

This was a game changer and could be the challenge you need to get into better shape and achieve something great. The atmosphere is unreal, the community is motivating and the accomplishment will drive you to want more.

I’m now hooked and plan to compete 4/5 times in the next season. So if you want to get your fitness journey started, you want to achieve or you want to take part in a Hyrox I am here to get you off in the right direction and with you every step of the way.
