Following 11 years of work as a Firearms Officer with Sussex Police, Simon returned home to Somerset to fulfil an ambition of running a successful Personal Training based fitness centre. Phoenix Fitness opened in 2001. Since that time the club has gone from strength to strength. Simon and his team work closely with the members to help them achieve their personal fitness goals, no matter their age or ability.
Simon completed the Hour of Power certification course in 2010 and immediately introduced the class to Phoenix Fitness. Initially starting with 2 classes at the gym, this has now grown to 6 classes a week, with an age range of participants from 18 – 70 years.
Simon achieved a personal fitness goal of running the London Marathon this year and his next challenge is to complete a 24-hour continuous workout at Phoenix Fitness for charity- This will inevitably involve an Hour of Power!
