I have been training clients for over 20 years. I specialise in working with pre and post op clients who have special needs. As I am sports massage qualified I thrive off helping clients who are injured, using sports massage to relieve symptoms then offering specific training to aid recovery. My experience lies in martial arts and strength training, offering the only H.I.T facility in the North of England. Here we offer brief but intense workouts that no other trainers can offer.

Hi I’m Jodie

I recently moved up to Newcastle to study my master’s degree in applied sciences, Nutritional Science.

I’m a qualified and certified sport and exercise therapist specialising in exercise prescription rehabilitation methods.

I have a strong sporting background having competed at national level in swimming and horse riding.

I predominantly work with free weights and gym machinery as strength and conditioning the body helps improve general health, maintains healthy bones, prevents injuries, and improves posture and balance.

Gym members will always be the centre of my attention, so if you have any questions regarding health, nutrition and wellbeing please don’t hesitate to ask me!

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a person make changes to their lifestyle and achieve their goals and at Axis Fitness, you can do just that !

Working mainly in the office, I look after the Admin for the gym, keeping the wheels turning while the Instructors look after you. I train in the gym and sometimes cover shifts, so say Hi to me next time you are in.

See you soon 🙂

Hey, I’m Claire

My work background is in nursing, however I have always had a keen interest in health and fitness.

After completing my Level 2 Gym instructor qualification, I joined the Axis Fitness family. I love to help people improve their health, well being and self esteem. I thrive to see people become happier and healthier in themselves, physically and mentally.

I am passionate about martial arts training, in particular Muay Thai.

Keeping all the members happy is my main priority and I am always happy to help.
