Stephen Rutherford-Bate: Owner Body Fitness PT

Steve’s Story

I’ve always had a passion for exercise and well-being. My lifestyle over the last 10 years has made that more and more difficult. Finally, after accruing almost 1 million Airmiles, enough was enough and I quit my role as Account Director of a large multinational. I fully retrained to pursue my passion – lived what I preached, lost 3 stone, ran a marathon, climbed Mont Blanc, and now run my own successful studio and am developing our holistic coaching practice for the future.

There are many of us with similar stories so it’s not just sports professionals our clients deal with – they are real people that truly understand the real pain and obstacles people are faced with on a daily basis. Along with our unique hormonally based approach this gives us an enormous insight into how to help people become their best self!

Cat Stayte: Senior Coach

Cat’s Story

As a child I was chubby, hated sports and was always the last to be chosen. How bad can it get? Well that’s what I thought then! Then I thought, how could I prove them wrong?

As a teenager I joined the gym and became addicted to training. I also learned to horse ride and got involved in deep sea diving. Wow – how sports changed my life! I worked in theatre for 14 years and eventually decided to retrain and follow my fitness dreams! At 35 I became pregnant and managed to return to my normal size in 2 weeks due to my healthy nutrition and training during pregnancy. I was still jogging 3 weeks before he was born! I am not the fittest or strongest female but I am healthy and happy… What more could a mum ask for?

You tell me what you strive for and I will help you get there.

Brijesh Gohil: Coach

Brij’s Story

Brij is the perhaps most regarded by his clients as making things fun and effective (though he has the most questionable music taste of the BodyFitness PT team!).

Previously a manager at Livingwell Health Club, Brij found that he started to lose his touch in fitness due to the pressure to keep on top of his H & S and Sales at the club. Since moving to BodyFitness the change has been well worth it. Be prepared for some fun workouts with plenty of laughs during your session with Brij – he’s got a real aptitude of making exercise fun, diverse AND successful.

Brij has a real passion in weight lifting, combine that with his sports skills and the skills he has picked up at BodyFitness, plus his personality, then POW, You have a Great Winning Formula!!!

Qualifications: Level 3 personal trainer • Pool life guard trained
