Tom Dingle – Programme Director/Personal Trainer

I have been a keen and successful participant in sport from an early age, achieving county standard representation in a number of sports including football, rugby and athletics. This passion for sport led me to pursue a career in the fitness industry which I have been a part of for over 7 years. I have worked in various positions in both commercial and corporate fitness environments and take great pleasure in helping others to achieve their fitness goals.

My philosophy

Everyone is individual and there’s no one ‘best exercise’ to achieve a goal. Try and find out what works for you and enjoy yourself along the way. Integrate as many training concepts into your sessions as possible and see which ones fit your body and your personality.

Justine Besch – Assistant Programme Director

About me

My interest in the fitness industry began whilst working at a local hotel and health club, so eventually taking a career change in 2005 I studied with Futurefit training. Shortly after completing my qualifications I started working for Sona Positive Health (now Nuffield Health and a lot bigger company!). I was immediately placed at a corporate facility based in Newbury – Vodafone!

Having worked my way up to a Programme Director, completing many courses along the way (see below), I have recently taken a step back due to my new role as a “Mummy”. I am here on Mondays and Tuesdays only, but you may see me covering classes on other days to help out the rest of the team.

In my spare time I enjoy running, swimming, skiing, cooking, the odd glass of red wine – not so many these days, holidays in the VW Camper and spending time with my family.

My philosophy

Enjoy what you do.

James John – Wellbeing Advisor/Personal Trainer

About me

I have been working in the Health & Fitness Industry for over 10 years, working my way up from a fitness instructor to various management roles at some large health club operators. In 2008 I took up a position of running a tennis programme for both adults and juniors at a large racquets venue in Swindon, having played tennis to county standard this was an opportunity I could not pass up! During this time I was still teaching group exercise classes, delivering personal training sessions and expanding my knowledge by completing a diploma in functional performance.

I have never lost the enthusiasm for helping others with their training which is why I arrived here at Nuffield at Vodafone HQ.
I like to ensure that my sessions are enjoyable, motivational, inspiring and most of all results driven. The skills I have developed from the functional performance training have really opened my eyes as to what can be achieved from personal training, so be it general fitness, sports specific, weight loss or injury/joint or muscular issues please don’t hesitate to contact myself.

With a little hard work, you would be surprised as to what YOU can achieve!
