About our Gym

The Gateway Gym at BNU is fully equipped with the very latest training equipment. We have fully qualified, experienced Fitness Coaches who are on hand to assist at all times and can work with you to develop a personalised training programme, based exclusively around your goals. Our dedicated group cycling studio is complete with a MyRide+™ system and disco lights to fully immerse participants throughout the ride.

Other group exercise classes take place in one of our two large studios. We also have a new personal training studio complete with functional rig available for use within personal training sessions. This opens up amazing opportunities for 1-2-1 and small group training targeted specifically to you. Pop into the university and ask for a gym show round if you would like to take a closer look.

Meet our team...

I graduated from BNU with a degree in Dance Fitness and achieved the personal trainer award as part of the programme. I am passionate about helping people achieve their health and fitness goals and to enjoy the many benefits of being active. When I am not working, I love dancing, spending time with family and friends and walking my dog, Bero.

I began an MSc in Sports Therapy at BNU in 2019, after having spent the previous 7 years living and studying in Newfoundland Canada. I have been involved in health and fitness from a young age, starting out as a junior athlete and developing into a senior athlete where I represented Memorial University Canada in basketball and track.

I am currently studying Dance and Fitness at BNU. Through my studies I have gained my Exercise to Music and Fitness Coaching Awards. I am also working towards my Personal Trainer qualification. I strive to bring an element of fun and enjoyment to our members’ time using the gym. When I am not working or studying I enjoy going out with friends or family.

I moved to the UK from South Africa 3 years ago and I am now studying Dance and Fitness here at BNU. I have recently gained my Personal Trainer Qualification and I am looking forward to training clients at the Gateway Gym. I may be softly spoken but I have huge amounts of energy, enthusiasm and encouragement to offer. When I’m not working I like to dance, explore new things and eat chocolate!

Unmistakably Italian but living in the UK since 2012. I competed as a cyclist from the age of 6 till 18 and achieved a Bronze medal at the Italian Track Championships in 2003. I have worked in the Fitness Industry for the last 2 years and you can count on me to bring a smile and fun into the Gym. When I’m not working I love to cook (and eat!), dance Salsa and Bachata styles, as well undertaking D.I.Y projects.

I studied Sports Science and Coaching at BNU, so it feels as though I have not really left. I have a passion for running and have witnessed first-hand the benefits it can bring. I love helping people build up their running abilities and would welcome any enquiries in this area. When I am not working I am either running, helping out at the Marlow Park Run, or watching Wycombe Wanderers FC.
