Managing Director, Head Coach
Coming from a sporting background I always loved the associated training component. When I was 15 we were asked to put together a business plan as part of our coursework. Mine described a community based gym that had the following core values:
-Quality, constantly evolving coaching
-An ego-free atmosphere
To this day, these are still the core values that underpin GO:VER GYM
Hello I’m Claire. When we set up Go:ver Gym in 2014 I had no idea how many fantastic people I would meet along the way and what a wonderful community we would come to be a part of. I am very lucky to have such a nice place to go to work every day.
My name is Antonia and I am the manager at Gover Gym.
This gym is a one-off, often loud and a little chaotic, full of laughter and always with a story to tell. I feel proud of our growing Gover team, our network of hugely talented instructors, and the most fantastic of members. It is true when we say we genuinely share in their successes, triumphs and goals; there’s a little bit of magic that happens in this place, and I’m immensely proud to be part of it.
Hello I’m Tim. You will most likely come across me with a paintbrush in my hand as I help out with the maintenance of the gym. A great sense of community and all round friendliness makes Go:ver Gym a lovely environment to both work and train in!

Pilates and Dance
When I joined Go:ver Gym I was immediately welcomed into the family – this is the friendliest gym I have ever worked in. I teach Pilates, Dance & Barre classes with the focus on variety & fun with attention to detail & lots of motivation thrown in to keep you coming back for more!
I didn't get into fitness until I was in my mid-twenties by which point I was trying to work out how to recover from major ankle surgery! I place an emphasis on functional exercises and high intensity full-body workouts- perfect if you want to lose weight, increase flexibility and stamina, tone up or for those who want to be a better all-round athlete.
I'm a yoga teacher with a focus on Ashtanga based yoga, specifically Vinyasa Flow. I fell in love with yoga in 2012, yoga fast became 'my time' & eventually I wanted to share my passion with the world so trained with FIE & started teaching in 2014. I completed 3 other 200 hour yoga courses, & most recently became a qualified Thai masseuse, expanding my anatomical knowledge to new levels. My classes are fun, casual & sweaty!
