James Davies
Gym Manager

The gym bug bit at the age of 14 when I wanted to get stronger and bigger for rugby to enhance performance, though It was only after trying a few other careers did I decide that I should be in the gym helping people to better themselves with their own goals. I’m still a massive rugby fan and unpopular with my support of the All Blacks! yet now I train more for powerlifting as nothing beats beating personal records!

Though I am more in the back managing the gym, I still like to get down to the nitty gritty with members and seeing how there training is going and helping to break barriers

Hamid Alawiye
Fitness/Class Instructor & Personal Trainer
I have a passion for fitness, health and well-being. My first love is sport, been involved on all levels from competing to coaching in different range of sports. I have been in fitness professional industry for over 5 years. As a firm believer in empowerment through movement and balance, I was drawn to the art of Pilates. By experiencing first hand both the injury prevention and rehabilitation benefits, as well the strengthening and sculpting benefits, can help improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension. Using in-depth knowledge and understanding of the human body, I’ve developed a system of training techniques to elicit effective strength, muscular size/definition and weight management adaptations. Having worked with people of all ages in both sporting and non-sporting environments, I am able to identify a wide range of dysfunctions, both acute and chronic.
