Steve Fletcher

Being active, playing sports, competing and rising to challenges is what I’ve loved to do since I was a young boy. The drive to better myself is a trait that has allowed me to achieve several personal goals and achieve personal success, often off the back of failure.

In my younger days I played tennis and rugby predominantly, which I continued throughout University where I competed for both Greenwich and Loughborough University. During this time, I was fortunate to win a number of County and National competitions as well as being part of the first international rugby team to play Greece, in Greece.

Nowadays and to my wife’s annoyance, I like to set physical challenges. My latest one is an Ironman 70.3 in Mallorca in 2019. This challenge is all the more challenging as I’ve had a long-standing knee injury and I had to learn to swim. The enjoyment for me is not in the achieving of a goal but the journey I’ve taken to get there.

Two rules to live by: 

  1. A goal without a plan is just simply a wish, so plan how you will reach the goal. If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail!
  2. You only get one turn at life so choose to do what makes you happy and don’t be afraid to make few mistakes along the way.

Top Five Training Tracks:

  1. 'Eye of the Tiger' – Survivor: This old school track still gets me going!!
  2. 'Break Stuff' – Limp Bizkit: An angry one
  3. 'Breathe' – Prodigy: Excellent beat for an extra push
  4. 'Monkey Wrench' – Foo Fighters: Just a great song
  5. 'Papa Roach' – Last Resort: An important one when hurting

Interests:

Predictably, most of my interests are sports. I follow pretty much all sports and athletes at the top of their profession. In recent years I’ve become more interested in cycling as my enjoyment in the sport grew. Outside of sport, I do like to cook, particularly on a BBQ. It’s a good thing I do maintain my activity levels as my love of food wouldn’t be good for my health!

These classes have been specifically designed to allow participants to work at their own intensity level, with the ability to modify all exercises according to their own personal fitness.

Beginner

A person new to training or an individual with below average fitness levels can be termed as a beginner. These classes are also suitable for those returning to exercise after a break/injury.

Intermediate

A person training at intermediate level should have a fair amount of base fitness and coordination and thus can be exposed to a higher intensity workout.
