Level 1 CrossFit Trainer /  Assistant Director

'My crossfit journey began in 2016, new to the entire fitness world; I was of course intimidated by the very idea of putting on gym leggings and training in front of people. However stepping into the Hive was like I never would have expected, the amount of support from coaches and members inspired my love for the sport and got me here now. Many people struggle with body image on a daily basis, as a coach I want to inspire people to not only love what their bodies look like but what they can do, this means setting goals, smashing PBs but most importantly having fun! CrossFit is a sport focusing on functional skills performed at high intensity. This combination can only benefit your health and
well being, both physically and mentally. What
more can you really ask for?!

Completing my Level 1 qualification has allowed me to use what I have learnt in the last two years, to successfully coach and support others in their CrossFit journey. I am still only at the beginning of mine, and continue to challenge myself daily to reach targets and push my limits. My aim now is to discover how CrossFit can benefit children throughout their development, and I hope to inspire the younger generation to live a fun, healthy and active life. The great thing about CrossFit is the constant room for progress as well as the noticeable daily improvements.'

Fitness, Martial Arts and Nutrition is most certainly a way of life and shouldn’t be looked upon as something that is done temporarily. Fitness  improves mental and physical health and should be a part of everyone’s life. Regardless of age, current ability or gender, everyone should be given the chance to explore and start their fitness fulfilled journey.

'I believe that my forever expanding knowledge of nutrition and fitness combined with my motivational ways, I am able to understand my client’s goals, using and manipulating a variety of equipment, exercises and training techniques to reach my client’s goals inside and outside of the gym.'

ED Clery

Personal Trainer

Former professional Breakdancer and Drummer Ed Clery has shared a genuine passion for fitness, nutrition and inspiring people to become amazing for the past 15 years.

Ed loves promoting healthy living and optimal fitness through the constantly varied, hight intensity world of Crossfit.

"The combination of weightlifting, gymnastics, metabolic conditioning and nutritional focus leads to a complete transformation of your personal quality of life, strength and fitness".

After retiring as a professional Breakdancer and Session Drummer a few years ago Ed made the decision to concentrate on his other passion, Crossfit, Health and Fitness.

Seeing the results for himself, Ed soon realised the benefits of Crossfit’s training methods and decided that coaching was an endeavour he would gladly like to pursue.

“There is nothing better then being able to witness not only the evolution of a persons ability but also their mindset as they accomplish goals they never thought they could achieve. That’s what drives me to be the best coach I can be alongside my own personal development”.


Archie Swinyard

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

'I get a massive buzz from progressing within CrossFit, regularly achieving personal bests and by instructing and motivating others to reach their full potential

Although originally self-taught using body weight
calisthenics movements, I moved on to CrossFit training when I joined The Hive. I find that CrossFit perfectly combines strength training, body weight movements and cardio. CrossFit also encourages friendly camaraderie which means that working out at the Hive has always been fun. I believe ‘having fun’ is an essential part to an
individual’s long-term improvement and motivation..'


Kathryn Earnshaw

Certified Health Coach

I believe life is all about balance and enjoying the day-to-day. Focusing on what you want, not on what you don’t want and giving all the things you want to a go even if you’re scared to!

Health is a big part of that – feeling great when you look in the mirror, having more energy, more confidence. Health isn’t just about weight but overall wellness, it’s about how you live, and how you nourish all areas of your life.

And that’s what health coaching is – getting you to the place where you have all of that!

I have had many hours of coaching myself and it has made me see life through different eyes, significantly changing it for the better. I want to help others who really want to stretch themselves and be the best they can be, have the same.
