Keeping active: Formerly a rugby player with both Saracens and Bristol, Glenn's senior playing career was cut short by a knee injury. He officially retired from playing rugby in 2012 although still turns out for the local vets side. Glenn often cycles in the 15 miles from home to the office and enjoys both road biking and mountain biking on the nearby south downs. He completed Ironman France 2012 and vowed shortly after crossing the finishing line never to do anything so ridiculous ever again. He is of course now considering another one.

In addition James also heads up our GymFlex operations, a rapidly expanding area of the business.

Keeping active: All of the time! A new baby daughter, a dog who thinks he is a baby, cycling, running, swimming, half marathons all keep Emma busy. When the heart rate is resting then it's time to hit the books - currently studying sports nutrition.

Rachel Barber, Key Account Manager

Starting as a receptionist and ending as the Assistant Business Manager at the City of London Club whilst also teaching both swimming and spin classes to members.

Keeping active: Not quite as active as she used to be, but then she's no longer in training for County swimming competitions. However any opportunity to dive into the swimming pool will always be taken! Rachel keeps saying that she would like to participate in a Triathlon but has not actually committed to signing up yet!
