Lisa CurtisCoach - 5S Fitness
Lisa has spent years progressing her training and nutrition, constantly striving to develop programmes that are specifically designed to meet her every need and goal. Over the many years of trialling different training methods and diets she has found a passion for Strength training and metabolic conditioning, knowing that in order to stimulate changes in the body, we need to work to high intensities and take ourselves outside of our comfort zones.

She has also developed a keen knowledge of nutrition and how to best develop nutritional programmes that are tailor made to suit each and every client. Diet and nutrition is not about stripping away as many calories as we can, it’s about finding the right balance that is going to help you achieve your goals, while also being sustainable long term.

If you’re looking for a coach that is not only going to make sure that your training is of the highest standard, but will also ensure that you maintain a healthy and nutritious diet and lifestyle, then Lisa is the coach for you.

Bex Ward
Bex WardNutritionist / Coach - 5S Fitness
My name is Bex Ward and I’m a qualified nutritionist. Nutrition is an ever-changing and often very confusing landscape and I am passionate about coaching people so they are empowered to make choices that allow them to reach their goals, whether they are weight loss, sports performance or optimal health, without making unnecessary sacrifices or overcomplicating things. I help people build long-term habits, fuel their body for exercise and have a great relationship with food that means they know that no food is off limits. My hunger for knowledge and determination to turn information into easy to follow advice allows my clients to not only get results, but be empowered to continue to manage their nutrition on their own.

Having come to a bit of a crossroads in my life & career, I was looking at my Instagram feed one day when I realised that nearly all the content was food related. This lead me to a bit of an epiphany: “Why don’t I become a nutrition coach?!” So I researched the most reputable courses and wanting to learn from the best, I signed up to MNU (Mac Nutrition Uni). After 12 amazing months being engrossed in the fundamentals of nutrition and how to be a successful coach, I qualified as a fully certified nutritionist and started Balanced Nutrition. I knew for a long time that I wanted my company to be called ‘Balanced Nutrition’ because I have a strong belief that so many good things in life come down to finding a balance, especially when it comes to food.

Nutrition and sport have both played huge parts in my life for more than 25 years now and are as prevalent in my routine as ever; and having been involved in amateur sport for more than 20 years, my passion for both has grown year on year. I love to help athletes understand how to fuel their body effectively so they can get absolutely everything out of their training & competitions, and increase their confidence in their performance.

Sadie Mackay
Sadie MackayCoach - 5S Fitness
I am passionate about training women using dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells and a whole variety of resistance exercises. Seeing my clients grow stronger, gain confidence and feel better about themselves is hugely rewarding.

As a full-time mum of two, I know how difficult it can be to find the time to get into the gym. This is where a Personal Trainer can really help. By building programmes that utilise your time in the gym effectively, I can help you to reach your strength and fitness goals.

I began resistance training eight years ago. Back then, I didn’t think weight training was for me. I found the free-weights area of the gym quite intimidating. With the guidance and support of my own PT, I overcame my inhibitions and now I love it. Feeling stronger has given me confidence in all aspects of my life.

So, I decided to turn my passion and sport into my profession, and I am now qualified as a level 3 PT instructor, supporting my clients to excel with their fitness goals.

Working at 5S has given me the opportunity to work alongside some amazing trainers and to learn from their knowledge and experience.

Jon Cain
Jon CainCoach - 5S Fitness
I am a passionate Strength & Conditioning coach for youth athletes and sports-specific athletes. Lockdown led me to take my level 4 qualification with Jason and swapping ideas with fellow trainers led me to deliver park sessions to keep people sane through the lockdown. This has led to me training Adult Team players and County Junior Squad players for Tennis.

My background is Tennis coaching and I run a quality coaching program for over 300 players with a coach team at Prestbury Tennis Club and in the local community. The role is about attracting and retaining players interest in the sport as well as the performance of players in competitions.

The key to longevity in any sport is understanding the motivation of an athlete, preparing them long-term and preventing injury. Learning the foundations of fitness at any age is vital whether a tot learning the fundamentals of movement, an adult training for competition or a senior athlete trying to stay participating in their sport. If athletes can learn and understand the benefits of physical training they will have the building blocks for a robust body and mind.

I still play in National Tennis Events (ITF Seniors) and enjoy the outdoors. This does lead to injury but I have turned this negative into a positive through learning about injuries, correct training technique, long-term planning and overall a greater understanding of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD).
