ABOUT OUR TRIBE

We have Tribes in Bournemouth & Poole (Dorset), Dulwich (S.E London) and Hastings (East Sussex).

 

Empowerment through movement is the VIBE of our TRIBE.

Physical fitness and mobility, mental health, nature, inclusivity, community and building friendships are what we are about

Our holy grail is the endorphin release high that comes when you are smeared in sweat while immersed in nature, feeling like a strong and energised BADASS!

Our feel-good sessions are suitable for ALL fitness levels and abilities - They are full of variety and are pretty damn addictive too!

Mums & Little ones - As well as our mixed gender sessions we run exclusively women only sessions where babies & toddlers are welcome. (Just bring along toys and snacks to amuse them!) 

We train in ALL weathers, all year round... so come prepared with your water plus your sunscreen / raincoat /gloves / snow plough... you get the picture!

Amy Bowley

Owner &

Head Honcho

BOURNEMOUTH & POOLE

Amy is passionate about helping others feel AWESOME, both inside and out. Watching her clients realize their ability and unique greatness is what makes her tick.

Technique, posture and optimising mobility are key to Amy's style of training.

 

After collecting a catalogue of injuries in her twenties (yes, she was one of those "no pain, no gain" idiots!) she embarked on a anatomical journey that would spark her vision to create a high energy, technique focused and inclusive space for functional movement that empowers ALL bodies, safely - all while immersed in our beautiful nature...

BodyFit Tribe was born.

Experience: Level 3 Personal Trainer, Level 3 Nutrition Coach, Bootcamp Instructor, Indoor Cycling Instructor.

Boxing is her favourite way to exercise and release her inner badass!

Max Cotterell-East

Head Honcho

 

 

LONDON

Max is a level 3 Personal trainer, a running coach, marathon and ultra-runner and a mother of one.

 

She starts every day with meditation; it’s the last time she will be still or quiet that day. She swears, sings badly, and always has your back.

 

With a love of functional fitness and a drive to promote inclusive fitness whatever barriers society throws at us, Max is always finding new ways to get individuals ‘lifting and moving sh*t’. 

 

She gets her kicks from watching that beautiful moment when a client’s confidence starts the shift… they get that little grin, then they hit a goal, and you see the pride beaming all over their face.

She. Loves. That. 

Naomi McMaster

Head Honcho

 

 

HASTINGS

Naomi is a Level 3 Personal Trainer with a desire to make exercise and movement accessible to everybody.

She knows there is a type of movement for everyone and she’s here to help you move in ways that feels good, and maybe even push you to lift heavy stuff you never thought possible.

She LOVES training groups outside in nature, regardless of the elements (of which there are many on the South Coast)!

She thinks she’s hilarious so you might have to put up with some awful attempts at comedy whilst your sweating and panting!

In 2019 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and exercised throughout her 18 months of treatment. This fuelled a fire in her to train as a cancer exercise specialist which she is currently working towards.

Her experience of treatment and surgery side effects (long and short term) has made her a pro at adapting exercises for all abilities, conditions and disabilities

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I was a member of the local gym for many years however I felt uninspired and unmotivated... I was exercising but did not see any physical change in my body shape.  Training with Amy is a breath of fresh air; she is fun and welcoming and makes everyone feel at ease while pushing you to your limits. The sessions are intense, challenging and upbeat with each day being totally different. 


I would encourage anyone no matter what age or ability to give it a try...one thing I'd say for sure - you will never regret it. You'll make new friends too!

Exercising in a small group with other women I became strong  and most importantly confident and happy.  I was able to see results over 12 weeks without injuring myself and this is only because I had personal attention.  After 12 weeks I lost 5cm's off my hips, 5cm's off my waist and 2cm's off my arms. I lost 9lb's in total and replaced 5lb's of fat with muscle.

I am 42 years old & I have done many group exercise programmes but none have been more focused, fun and inspiring and encouraged me to give it my best.
