Discover Ultimate Health and Fitness

Hi, I'm Chris Melhuish, Founder and Head Coach Of Ultimate Health and Fitness

I have worked in the fitness industry for 15 years now. Progressing from working as a fitness instructor and PT in several gyms and on the cruise ships, to opening up my own personal training studio in 2012.

In 2017 we extended the premises and re-branded the business, becoming known as, Ultimate Health and Fitness.

We wanted to keep the exclusivity and personal touch, rather than turning it into a general gym. We now offer small group training sessions.  

In August 2018 we moved to much larger, self contained premises. We are now able to provide changing facilities, as well as somewhere to relax and socialise.

The training area is much larger. We have been able to accommodate more equipment and generally have more space. 

I am passionate about what I do. I have always enjoyed physical activity, including playing rugby. I have to keep fit and healthy for my job. I have to set an example to my clients. With three young children, I understand how hard it is to have that work/life balance.

I want my clients to feel comfortable in the training environment, not to feel intimidated by the equipment or other people. 

I like to be on hand, to make sure my clients are getting the most out of the training – getting individual attention. To make sure they are performing the exercises correctly and to inspire every single client who enters the facility to get in the best shape of their lives.

Results and offering a high quality, friendly service are my top priorities.
