Training and coaching people just feels like fun , rather than a job “I gain more satisfaction from seeing clients/members progressing and achieving their goals than I do from my own achievements. I’ve previously been a member of North Staffs Tri Club, Manchester North Stars, Rochdale Tri Club and Bolton Tri Club. I joined Knutsford approximately 5 years ago. I currently take spin classes at the club and am keen to help out in other areas whenever possible. “
