Jake joins the team at Fit 20

12 June 2017

20-year-old Jake Ellam has joined the growing team at the health and fitness studio Fit20 – based at Fox Valley in north Sheffield.

The Fit20 studio can be found at Harry Brearley House at Fox Valley above stores including Seasalt and JoJo Maman Bebe.

The company is pioneering a completely new approach to fitness offering 20 minute instructor led work-out sessions aimed at people who find the gym too time consuming.

Jake has worked at gyms and health centre’s across the region and is a semi-professional footballer for Ossett Town – he’s also just completed his Level 2 Fitness Instructor Course and Level 3 Personal Trainer Qualification.

He joins husband and wife team Niri and Catherine Patel who introduced the new concept to the UK earlier this year when they opened the country’s first Fit20 studio at Fox Valley.

The Fit20 work outs consist of slow and controlled high intensity training - which means no sweating and no need to change into gym clothes making it the perfect work out to fit into a busy schedule or a working day.

Sessions are taken 1-2-1 with a fully trained Personal Trainer using the latest technology to track results and progress.

Jake said: “Fit20 is completely different to a conventional gym – there is no loud music, it’s a very calm and tranquil environment and with all appointments there is a personal trainer with you.

“We also aim to have no more than two people in the studio at any time and we really focus on making sure our clients get the very best out of each session which is tailored to their needs.”

Jake is working full time at the Fit20 studio and the company is looking at extending its current opening hours as membership numbers expand.

Niri said: “We are delighted to have Jake on the team, he is a really focussed young man who understands what we are trying to achieve with our approach to health and fitness. “
