The Team



Adrian, General Manager, is the vital link to most things in the Health Club and has been for years. Adrian manages most of the vast amount of equipment needed to keep the Club running and he is also our IT systems Manager.  So there is nothing (and we mean 'nothing') that happens here that Adrian is not involved with.

Adrian is also a fitness instructor and our lead Aqua aerobics instructor.  When he is not doing all of this, he can be found doing gym inductions and negotiating with Harriet and her wild ideas about seasonal decorations.

Adrian is a keen traveler and if he is not on duty he seems to have just  'popped ' on a flight somewhere for a quick visit.

Rosemary is our PIlates Instructor. She's always been passionate about physical activity be it netball, athletics or yoga – indeed anything that made her move.


She came upon Pilates about ten years ago and what attracted her to it was its inclusivity.  'It didn’t matter what age you were or what physical condition that you were in, it presented you with the opportunity to take control and condition yourself for the rest of your life.'

She possess the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Instructing Mat Based Pilates which is Ofqual regulated.


As part of her continuing personal development she is currently studying Specialised Orthopaedic – this will enable her to assist people troubled by arthritis and other debilitating conditions.

Scarlett is one of the Yoga instructors here at the Club.


Her yoga journey began ten years ago when she hesitantly attended her first class. What began as a weekly class grew into more than just a form of exercise, She developed a new appreciation for how yoga could influence all aspects of her life and the wonders of being part of a like-minded community.


Her aim is to make yoga accessible for everyone – she offer modifications for the majority of postures to ensure you can take the class at your own pace. She want to ensure that no matter what your level of practice that you find confidence on (and hopefully off) your mat!

Scarlett's sessions soon book up, so be sure to get your name down.


Emma is one of our lovely yoga instructors at the Club. 


In Emma's words ..

"I .... host community classes teaching yoga and breath-work as a passion project. Bringing individuals together, each with their own backstory, into one space to breathe and move together - and then seeing the often visible shifts in their sense of wellbeing - felt like a privilege. I’d felt that visceral shift in my own body and I became curious."
