Nick Lane

Owner / Personal Trainer / Head of Programme Design

After spending 3 years at Hartpury College studying Sports Conditioning and Coaching, Nick found his calling in coaching health and fitness, and began training clients in 2009. Since then Nick has worked with Olympians, GB athletes, arctic explorers, local teams and people simply wanting to improve their health, fitness and wellbeing. This led Nick to open the NLFitness Facility in March 2015, and devotes himself to pursuing innovative ways to train whilst filtering out the nonsense. Not a fan of quick fixes and fads, Nick uses small, consistent changes to create habits which point you in the right direction and lead to big changes over time.

Nick has studied in America, holds qualifications in fitness, nutrition, strength and conditioning, is a Level 3 Sports Massage Therapist and a Level 4 Personal Trainer.

Outside of health and fitness, Nick enjoys spending time with his family, BBQing and DJing (badly).

Ruth MacIntyre

Personal Trainer / Head of Online Training

After an initial run in teaching, mum of 2 Ruth found her calling in Personal Training. After noticing huge improvements in her running and body shape from a structured strength and conditioning program, she decided to use her teaching background to guide others on a similar path. Ruth has since completed her pre and postnatal training qualification and although not limited to training mums, Ruth knows the struggle it can be getting your confidence and body shape back post-children, and the best plan of action to get you back on track and feeling yourself.

Ruth sees professional development as vital in her role and knows that what we do in the gym is only a small part of the picture. With this in mind, she has recently embarked on an accredited life coaching qualification to help those that are at a crossroads and need some help getting on the right path.

Ruth has gone on to become a Level 4 Personal Trainer, training 1-to-1 clients and groups, both in person and online, helping them regain confidence, body shape and energy.
