OUR COACHES

RICH

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

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


ETHOS

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!

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


ETHOS

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.

Claire

Hi I'm Claire, Massage Therapist at Sapien Training.

I'm a runner, yogi, and cyclist from Hurst!

Having exercised all my life iv'e learned how to treat injuries and maintain healthy movement through advanced massage techniques, and movement disciplines such as Yoga (i'm also a qualified Yoga teacher).

In my treatments I use a range of advanced techniques; heat, trigger point, fascial, deep tissue, and passive stretching to-

 
  • prevent injuries

  • increase joint range of motion
     
  • alleviate stress

    reduce pain & discomfort

ETHOS

My ethos is to give people the ability to carry on doing what they love, whether it's walking the dog or running a marathon!
