Help Desk Team
- JaneHelp Desk Manager
I joined CHANGE as a member back in 2009. I was new to the whole gym experience but quickly became addicted. I found the gym so friendly that in November of the same year I came to work on the reception team and I have stayed since!
Our job is to make sure we live up to our reputation of being Hove's friendliest gym and be on hand to point you in the right direction, any time you need.
- KatHelp Desk
I joined the Team here in December 2014. I'm not alone in saying I was new to gym life then and despite being terrified in the beginning, I figured if I was working here it was as good excuse as any to dive right in. I have never looked back.
I'm prone to disappearing every so often on an overseas adventure, but I'll always be back. In between time, I've got Zahra to give me the lowdown on what I'm missing back home.
- JacobHelp Desk
I am the Sunday Guy. I have been at CHANGE now for 2 years and honestly, I don't think one single Sunday has ever felt like work, which perfectly suits my student lifestyle.
I genuinely enjoy showing potential new members around our club and making them feel like this could be somewhere that they would genuinely enjoy being a part of and getting to know.
Aside from my work on the reception, I am often on the gym floor chatting to members about their achievements, and if they are up for it, sharing their stories with our social media crew. So grab me and let's break the internet in Brighton.
- KimHelp Desk
I have been a member of CHANGE gym since 2015 and have always found it to be friendly, welcoming and a great place to come for my workouts. My favourite classes are Step, Boogie Bounce and Hour of Power. I absolutely love the the atmosphere and the amazing attitude towards fitness.
I'm really looking forward to working on the help desk and being part of the team to help all members achieve their fitness goals! When I'm not working you'll find me taking long walks on the beach, arranging flowers and out and about with my friends.
Our PT Team
- LynziPersonal Trainer
Based in Shoreham, I used to work in the West End as a Sound Engineer with a few well known celebrities; Mr Blobby, Basil Brush, The Nolan Sisters [all 4 of them], Sir Ian McKellan - but after blossoming to 15 stone I decided to run away from the City.
I ran away and finished four marathons, a few halfs, a couple of bike rides and lost 5 stone.
I then retrained as a personal trainer and today my poor partner gets roped into my charity races and rides. Even the cat has lost 2kg.
So now I'm working with people to help them lose weight, train for a specific event or just improve their personal fitness and well being. If you fancy a compadre to run along the seafront or over the downs, myself and my four-legged friend would be more than happy to join you. Or if that's not your cup of tea, we'll design you an indoor cycling session, a 1-2-1 in the weights area or a boxing session to release some steam. Whatever your likes or dislikes, if you want to get moving, then come and have a chat. I've been there, I know exactly what it's like. I even still have the old baggy pair of jeans as proof!
- BryanPersonal Trainer
At the age of 50 I retrained and qualified as a Personal Trainer and indoor cycling instructor.
I enjoy working with a diverse group of people who have various levels of fitness, especially those who have never exercised in a gym before, or are returning after a break.
I recognise that the first time you enter a gym can be very daunting. So I make it my personal responsibility to make those initial steps easier for you. Once you are through that, you will be flying!
If you have any questions or fancy a chat, give me a nudge. The whole team are here to help you achieve your goals and to make training fun.
- JessPersonal Trainer
Hi, I'm Jess, I joined CHANGE as a gym instructor and have now qualified as a PT after starting my own fitness journey right here! I had previously struggled with my weight and nutrition plus had an avoidance issue when it came to exercise. All that changed when my confidence hit an all time low and I needed a plan to get back on track. I started at CHANGE and have never looked back since.
I want to help other people do the same. You will see me working around the gym. I can help you with programmes, inductions and eGym. When I'm not working you will see me training right alongside you!
- BrandonBosski and Owner
I have been involved with fitness in Hove for over 15 years now. Essentially, I am all about offering great quality fitness solutions at an accessible price, so that as many people can get involved as possible. Sounds a bit corporate I know. But it's true. I want as many people in our awesome city to experience amazing training and lifestyle choices, without a whopping price tag.
I have a history in martial arts, rugby and tennis and like to challenge myself and keep my waistline in check with regular endurance races, like the obstacle course events and half marathons. Outside of the office, if I'm not with the family or with my other love affair - motorbikes - you will see me around the gym keeping a handle on things, or else teaching our HIIT classes - a personal favourite. They tell me I take no prisoners!
Thank you for helping us to create CHANGE.
- DebbieGeneral Manager
I originally started out as a CHANGE member. I have now worked here for 6 years and I love it. This year we have seen lots of exciting changes and I think our new look is brilliant.
I love to spend as much time as possible chatting to members and responding to their feedback. I really enjoying trying different classes and mixing up my workout routine to keep me interested. I am already addicted to our eGym equipment and my personal challenge this year is to gain strength as I have always been classes and cardio biased. As part of my role I enjoy visiting other gyms in the local area, it's always good to know what the competition are up to, that way we can keep a few steps ahead!
- PatOperations Manager
I had been a member of Change for many years and have seen a lot of changes over that time, all for the good, making the club look more exciting and great to work out in. The latest eGym equipment is just amazing, giving you a really great work out with minimum brain effort... I love it.
Brandon, the club owner, never seems to let the grass grow under his feet which is maybe why we have fake grass in the gym now!!
I loved the club so much I decided to become a member of staff and really enjoy my job - you might not always see me in the club as I am beavering around in the background, but when you do see me I am always happy to help with any questions and feedback you have or even just to chat - I enjoy a good chat.
- ReeceFitness Manager
As the Fitness Manager it's my mission to get each and every member on the correct pathway to achieving their desired results. Whether this has you jumping on eGym, HIIT training in Tribe or setting you up with one of our dedicated personal trainers for a programme or 1-2-1 session - no goal is impossible.
I have been with CHANGE since 2014, straight out of the fitness industry in Australia after three years straight. However I'm back for good, and with the incredible team here, we've worked hard to create a work-out environment with something for everybody. Please feel free to approach me at any time, I am always around and ready to help you on your fitness journey.
