Hi I'm Rich, and I run Sapien Training.

My career background is in Personal Training and Exercise Rehabilitation, and away from that I'm a climber & calisthenics monkey (and founder of the Sapien Training community).

My training ethos is heavily influenced by our ancient movement patterns (physically speaking, I believe we're evolving in the wrong direction).

I believe that by practicing our movement and connecting with our inner homo-sapien, we can restore our innate levels of movement and physical resilience.

Here at Sapien Training, I coach Boxing, Calisthenics, Strength & Conditioning, and also deliver 1:1 and small group coaching.

Hi I'm Rosie, resident Yoga instructor at Sapien Training.

I'm a dancer, yogi, and exercise instructor from Brighton, now living in the beautiful South Downs, where I love to get out in nature!

Behind every successful man lies a strong but overworked woman and thats me. I help to run Sapien Training and coordinate the creative cacophony that is my partner, Rich.

My ethos is to make people happy first, and strong will naturally follow second. I want to introduce the life changing benefits of yoga to anyone who's receptive to its power.


Yoga and dance have changed my life and I LOVE seeing it change my clients lives too.
