DAVID PARKER

PERSONAL TRAINER / GROUP CLASS INSTRUCTOR / OWNER

With 19 years experience in the fitness industry, I will empower you to push your body’s physical boundaries through modern functional training methods. I am a former youth international and semi-professional rugby player that believes ‘The only limit in life, is yourself and through guidance and perseverance anything is possible.'

My career in the fitness industry started in 2003 when I became a certified Personal Trainer while studying at the University of Gloucestershire where I graduated with a BSc in Exercise & Health Sciences.

In 2006 I worked at Bath Rugby Club as the Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach where I gained valuable experience in the professional world of sport.

 

Come 2018, I became a Ride Instructor at London's premier boutique spinning company, Psycle, where I worked with some of the best instructors in the country all over the capital over a two year period.

In 2019 I worked at a unique bespoke personal training facility called Opus Fitness in the heart of Notting Hill, London while still co-owning and operating Body4you gym in the Cotswold's. I have worked with a variety of clientele ranging from elite athletes, celebrities to the general population.

With over 30,000 individual personal training sessions worth of experience, my intention is to leave you feeling energised, positive and inspired to work towards your fitness goals.

NICK CAFEARO

PERSONAL TRAINER / GROUP CLASS INSTRUCTOR / OWNER

I’ve worked in the fitness industry for 19 years and have co-owned and coached at Body4you since 2008.

When I first stepped into fitness coaching, my interests were sports specific performance, body building and group circuit training.

As I’ve matured in this industry and worked with a wider range of clientele, my passion has evolved into helping people of all different abilities to meet their fitness goals. The most important thing for me is getting to know you as an individual, helping to make you feel at ease and bringing fun into the workouts. My approach is to tailor every session to the individual and make it as productive, and more importantly, as enjoyable as possible.

I’m a family man with a wife and two beautiful young daughters who are my absolute world. I love my sports, especially rugby and golf which I have played for the majority of my life. 

As the company owner I’m super proud how the body4you gym has developed the warm approachable atmosphere it has and I feel blessed with the loving community we have. It’s like an extended family, and I’m confident in knowing you won’t find another gym like it.

ETEL COWLING

PERSONAL TRAINER / GROUP CLASS INSTRUCTOR / PILATES INSTRUCTOR

I live in Winchcombe with my husband and two teen-aged children. Growing up in Slovakia I had a very active childhood and a keen interest in sports; skiing and ice skating in winter to hiking and cycling in summer and playing volleyball during high school. After meeting my husband, moving to a foreign country (that I love and call home now) and having two children quite close together my lifestyle changed considerably and I found myself very unfit, insecure and overweight.

Through a friend I discovered Pilates and enjoyed it so much that I decided to become an instructor. I completed my Pilates diploma in 2012 and began teaching weekly Pilates classes and one-on-one sessions locally. I also started running and joined the Body4you gym. I still remember the first time I walked through the doors feeling timid and out of my depth only to be put at ease by the team and the friendly members. I rediscovered my love for exercise. I completed a Level 3 Personal training course in 2013, and a few others since (kettlebell training, pre and post natal exercise).

I started working as a personal trainer at Body4you in 2018. I really enjoy coaching the classes and individual clients. I strongly believe that anyone can exercise and I take joy in helping my clients get fitter, stronger and more confident in themselves and their abilities. I understand that every client is unique and so are their needs and we work together towards their goals with attention to detail.

LUCI SWIFT

PERSONAL TRAINER / GROUP CLASS INSRTUCTOR

I am a level 3 PT with qualifications in personal training, group based training, spin and nutrition. 

 

I have been qualified for nearly 10 years now but I have been running my own outdoor and in home personal training business for the last two years. 

 

My aim is to make keeping fit an enjoyable experience as well as the process it takes creating and working towards your fitness goals. I feel that everyone should feel comfortable and proud in and out of their bodies. We do have to spend our whole lives in them! 

 

As a mother of 3, I have the personal desire of wanting to feel fit, happy, healthy and strong. I feel this is so important not just for physical health but for emotional well-being and a happy life. 

 

I will help you set goals and push yourself towards achieving them. I believe we are all more capable than we think and with the right coaching I can help you see that potential. I personally thrive seeing my clients evolve and fall in love with this process. 

 

I use a mixture of strength and weight training with functional movements to improve fitness, endurance, aesthetic and strength.

JAMES O'MEEGHAN

PERSONAL TRAINER / GROUP CLASS INSTRUCTOR

I left university thinking I was going to use my biochemistry degree to become a chemistry teacher, but after a few months at Teacher’s College, I decided it wasn’t for me.

It was shortly after this that the Director of Coaching of my local gym suggested I turn my passion for fitness into a career.  That was in 2013, and I’ve been coaching ever since!

I’ve been fortunate to coach in gyms in New Zealand, the Middle East, and in UK. Working with people from all walks of life, and a variety of physical abilities.

I started in the CrossFit world, and have since discovered that helping people be fit for life is my greatest passion!  Life-long sustainable fitness, for me, is what true freedom is about.  Making sure we have the strength, fitness and mobility to allow us to experience life to its fullest.

Personally, I love doing it all. Endurance running, open water swimming, gymnastics, strength training, skiing, golf, whatever allows me to have fun while being active!

Having spent the last 9 years of my life in the fitness industry, I know there’s still plenty more to learn, and plenty more to experience! And I look forward to that, as well as helping as many as I can on their fitness journey!

CHARLIE BABB

PERSONAL TRAINER / GROUP CLASS INSTRUCTOR

I am a movement coach and online trainer with over 10 years of industry experience who helps people of all ages and ability ranges improve the way they move, feel and look.

My main goal is to practice and explore natural human movement patterns that will ultimately create a well-rounded body, able to function to the best of its ability in day-to-day life. In order to achieve this, I teach people how to restore and re-learn natural patterns of movement, establish sound posture and fundamental skills that we have forgotten and lost through bad habits.

I believe that functional strength, mobility/flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness are the three pillars of training needed to achieve a balanced and all-round human being. To move mindfully, play intentionally and grow naturally is at the heart of what I stand for.

My ethos is to inspire as many people as possible to move mindfully and with intent, whilst educating them on how to re-inhabit their bodies to become strong, mobile, resilient and pain free by moving functionally every day, at every opportunity.
