Adrian Wyszomirski, Fitness Instructor

I’ve recently started working for Marriott Leisure Club. My passion for sport was always present since a young age. In particular, I’ve always enjoyed distance running, cycling and gym-based activities. I’m always happy to help and answer your questions.

Samantha Gibbon, Fitness Instructor

I have recently just joined the Marriott after working in another hotel Health club previously for 3 years. I have been a PT for little over 3 years now and still love every part of helping clients reach their goals and targets! I have been involved in fitness from a very young age, I started skiing when I was 6 and my love for all activities have grown from there. As I’ve grown older I’ve become increasingly interested in yoga, weight lifting and running to help strengthen my body and reduce the everyday stresses life can bring.

Joe Charman, Fitness Instructor

I have recently started working at Marriott after completing my level 3 PT qualification. I have been involved in sport and fitness from a very young age, including competing internationally as an acrobatic gymnast from the age of ten. Gymnastics has taught me a lot about fitness, strength and conditioning and I enjoy adapting these principles into both my own and my client’s workouts.

John Firby, Fitness Instructor

Having always had a keen interest in sports, I decided to choose a career in an industry where I have real knowledge, passion and can make a difference to others. I run competitively to a high standard so I have all the knowledge to keep my weight down, my cardiovascular fitness levels up and I can help you do the same. Please dont hesitate to ask me for information or advice on how to meet your personal goals and targets.

Judith Leonard, Leisure Club Cleaner

I have recently moved to the Leisure Club after working for the Marriott for 9 years in the housekeeping department. I will be using my skills and experience from housekeeping and transferring them to my daily routine in the leisure club to ensure the club is cleaned and maintained to a high standard. I have been made to feel very welcome by both the staff and the members in the leisure club and I enjoy interacting and helping the members and guests using the facilities.
