Personal Trainers - a brief history
Did you know? We have been personal fitness trainers in the Alton Hampshire and Farnham Surrey areas for over 20 years. We started small in 1992, just like any business with just the two of us (Ginny and Nick Upshall) and a small car. We travelled to peoples homes to do one-to-one fitness training sessions in and around the Hampshire and Surrey areas.
In 1996 we started to grow our new business, so much so that in 1999 we were employing a couple of fitness trainers and urgently needed 'office' space to break out of our home/office. This is when we stumbled upon the barn in Binsted near Alton, Hampshire. It was a little big for an office (!) but Ginny had always dreamed of putting a gym in a converted barn so we signed our lease in 1999. Following an extensive repair and refit we officially opened our doors in August 1999 as a personal training studio!
Since that time we have organically grown the business through word of mouth and extended our facilities to include a larger gym space and pilates studio. We have trained hundreds of clients for thousands of hours and have amassed a huge depth of fitness knowledge.
We will continue to grow and develop our small business to this date and hope you may consider joining our small personal training centre in Alton, Hampshire.
