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.
Hi, I'm Laura, the manager of the gym.
Working here is a pleasure in itself, the team are fantastic, as too are our lovely members.
I'm responsible for the day to day running of the gym, you'll usually find me nattering away in reception or head down in the office. We're a very friendly bunch, GO:VER is the true embodiment of a Community gym, which I love. Pop in for a coffee and a chat with me anytime.
Personal Trainer & Sports injury Prevention & Rehab
Having played sport all my life, staying fit, healthy and mobile have always been important to me. That alongside injury prevention and rehab give me a great understanding into individual needs when it comes to exercise.

Reflexology & Cosmetic Acupuncture
Pilates & Dance Instructor
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!
Yoga & pregnancy yoga instructor
My name is Trudi Dawson, I’m a Doula UK doula, a FEDANT-approved Antenatal Teacher and a RYT300hours Yoga Instructor. My yoga classes support women through all stages - pregnancy, postnatal and pelvic floor restore being my main focus. I have been a member of Go:ver Gym since it first opened and I think it’s an awesome place to work and work out!
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!
I teach the Body Control method of Pilates focusing more on the classical style.
I trained as a ballerina for 10 years with the Royal Ballet School and Elmshurst School for Dance, and throughout my training, Pilates has always been a part of my daily routine.
Due to injury I was unable to carry on with my ballet career, but wanting to help more people discover the amazing benefits of Pilates has lead me to train as a level 3 Pilates Instructor with Body Control Pilates.
I was a massive fan of circuit classes, so much so I got qualified to take the classes myself! Great tunes, nice people (no egos) just working hard and getting sweaty. A full body workout designed for beginners to advanced ... and everyone in-between.
I have worked at Gover for 3 years now, being a part of this friendly community has helped me grow stronger both physically and mentally! My favourite place to be (apart from my bed) :)
I really enjoy seeing the physical and mental benefits of the gym environment.
You'll usually find me dancing with the mop or hoover around the gym floor.
Hi, I'm South African but I've lived in Botswana for most of my life. I joined Gover Gym back in November, 2 days before lockdown but that hasn't stopped me smiling. Whenever I'm on shift be sure you'll always be greeted with a warm South African smile :)
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!
