  • Laurence Arca-Bathe
    Director

    Mum of two, passionate about sports and fitness, yet in the wrong body for my passion! Keeping fit requires huge amounts of effort and commitment but it’s become part of my life and I couldn’t do without it. I played rugby for a ladies team, enjoy running around with my boys and there is nothing I like more than the satisfaction of achieving something I thought I couldn’t do.

    Having grown up with 5 siblings in South Africa, we were all introduced to sport early and were encouraged to play every sport that our school offered us.

  • Zoe Irvine
    Fitness Instructor

    To put it simply- I love my job. Seeing clients strength, mobility and endurance improve gives me a buzz. In turn I have seen clients posture improve, and become leaner and fitter.

  • Kathryn Lewis

    I love what I do, I love waking up and going to see my clients everyday, being outside and helping people who want to better themselves.

    I have always led an active lifestyle even from a very early age. My background is in martial arts, I started karate when I was 8 years old and I moved onto Taekwondo when I was 11 years old. Now my main passion for my personal fitness is Muay Thai and I spend a lot of my holidays in Thailand training.

  • Carolyn Onland
    Fitness Instructor

    I have had a varied and sporadic interest in fitness all my life, but the big change came in 2016. I decided, like many women do, to get fit and healthy for my wedding, I hired one of the Urban Energy Fitness Personal Trainers and the rest is (modern) history. To say I enjoyed the training sessions would be an understatement, seeing the progress I was making from session to session, I began to inspire myself with the results. I decided if I could get such incredible results, I wanted to inspire others to do the same. I began to qualify as a group fitness instructor and a personal trainer. When 2017 came around I had left my job and joined the Urban Energy Fitness team where it all started for me.
