New Fitness Manager at Ponds Forge

It’s time to welcome the latest addition to the Fitness Unlimited team; Chris Pattinson.

Chris joins the team as the new Fitness Manager for Ponds Forge International Sports Centre. We’re excited to have Chris on board and we hope you can join us in giving him a very warm welcome!

Having spent the last 6 years in the sports and leisure industry Chris has excelled in a number of roles including fitness instructor, personal trainer, GP referral trainer, duty manager and fitness manager. Chris’s previous role, working for a well-known luxury hotel and spa, saw him successfully manage their gym refreshment project.

Chris not only brings a wealth of experience in the fitness industry but he’s had a whole other career too spending 26 years in the Royal Air Force as a dental nurse, practise manager, dental nurse tutor and is a self-proclaimed tooth fairy! He certainly doesn’t look old enough to have had such a long career but we suspect this is down to his ‘moisturising routine’!

When we asked Chris what he was most looking forward to in his new role he said:

“I’m looking forward to making a real impact on the gym floor. I enjoy interacting with members and having some fun!”

Chris will be responsible for managing the gym team and personal trainers along with the group exercise timetable. He will also be teaching some classes mainly Les Mills Body Pump, RPM, Sprint and GRIT so make sure you check out our fitness timetable.

You’ll find Chris wreaking  havoc in the gym so next time you’re in venue, make sure you come and say hello and make him feel right at home.
