Coach and Owner

With 20+ years of experience in the health and fitness industry, Joe began his career in 1999. He trained and worked for the prestigious flagship Holmes Place Health Club on the Fulham road while studying for his diploma and then BSc (Hons) degree in Sports Science and Fitness evaluation. Along with a few others in the early ’00s, Joe then became one of the original park personal trainers based around Chelsea, Battersea, Wandsworth Common, Mayfair, Fulham, Clapham, and Kensington. Obviously, since then, the industry has exploded and rightly so.

As a keen sportsman playing to a high level in Rugby and then in his later 20s amateur league football, Joe has always enjoyed and been interested in exercise. He has helped people with many various fitness goals, including injury recovery and prevention, weight loss, weight gain, lifestyle changes, and general fitness.

Since opening up Guts 5 years ago, Coaching, Group Training, and Programming have been Joe’s passion. He still has the same enthusiasm as he did 20 years ago, and over this time, he has been lucky and privileged to work with so many wonderful clients whom he now considers friends, many of them for decades. Everyone has the guts to achieve their own personal glory; sometimes, they just need a guide.

Joe is a fully insured member of the National Register of Personal Trainers and a qualified British Olympic Weightlifting coach.


Brenda fell in love with Yoga 4 years ago in the UK after moving from France for a work opportunity. She discovered it in Farnham, where she met a beautiful local community. She followed Julie Montagu’s 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training course.

Brenda truly believes that Yoga has many powers. Among them, Yoga helps with flexibility and strength, but it also brings people together, helps people manage their stress better, and increases their self-care and self-love. Brenda’s goal is for her students to leave the class feeling stronger and more in love with themselves.

Brenda’s classes are dynamic, fun – and there is always room for some play time, suitable for beginner and advanced.


Working in London as a Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructor since 2016, Pandora has had extensive experience teaching a variety of classes, on top of running her own successful PT business.

Pandora was never the fit kid at school – instead, she always used to try and skip PE. Once she discovered the kind of training she enjoyed, it built her strength and confidence – and now she wants to help others also reach their fitness goals. Whether you’re coming to a group class or working 1-2-1 with her, Pandora will always focus on education, good technique, and trying to make your session the best part of your day.


Mark’s passion for all things fitness started at an early age; growing up in a very Rugby-centric household, he was naturally running around playing all sports and throwing himself into anything competitive.

As he grew up, Rugby became more professional, and Mark represented Yorkshire at age-grade level while playing in the National Leagues for Otley. Alongside Otley, he was dual registered with Leeds Carnegie, who featured in the Premiership.

Having hung up his boots, Mark’s main focus has since shifted towards building his portfolio as a fitness professional, Personal Trainer, and Coach. He is a huge believer in ‘lowering the barrier to entry’ to exercise and fitness, as it has given him so much, and he aims to provide as much of a gateway to as many people as possible.

Mark’s style of coaching very much gravitates to hopefully leaving clients feeling ‘Trained’, not ‘Drained’. He believes that everyone has the potential to be the best everyday athlete they possibly can be, unlocking new skills, forging friendships, and challenging themselves physically and mentally, all components of what makes exercise and fitness so special.


Throughout her life, Scarlett has always participated in sports, from playing competitive hockey and rugby to competing in triathlons. However, she found that the gym, strength training, and weights soon became her passion and number one hobby. This passion later led her to competitive powerlifting, and as part of a team, they won the British championships in 2018. Since then, Scarlett has trained and experimented with many other forms of training, finding a love for CrossFit and functional fitness.

Scarlett coaches because she wants people to enjoy moving and challenging their bodies, pushing themselves physically and mentally to achieve their best while enjoying the rewards that come with this.

Every class led by Scarlett will be fun, challenging, and rewarding, leaving participants with a high on endorphins!


Kara has been a PT for 5 years and has a background in Psychology. With her love of fitness and her passion for helping others, she nurtures her clients, but there is no hiding in her classes; she will help push you outside of your comfort zone… but don’t worry you’ll be happy about it!

She loves pretty much all music genres, so you can expect to hear a mix of 90s, disco, house, and techno in her classes!

Great class I’ve done this one twice now and I love the boot camp style but it’s a different set up each time. Definitely will be doing it again and highly recommend.

Foundation with Joe

Really good class and overall environment. I was lucky enough to be one of the only 3 people in class which made it very easy for Pandora to go around correcting posture and adapting the exercise when needed. I'll be back!
