The Chapel is a luxury private club dedicated to top level personal training. Access is by appointment only and the club always operates with 1-3 trainers at anyone time providing 11-55sqm of space per person - in essence a full commercial club with no more than 6 individuals in. Each guest is required to utilise anti-bacterial hand-gel, complete a temperature check and change into indoor shoes. The gym is cleaned hourly with anti-bacterial products and no guest utilises any equipment previously touched without a full anti-bacterial wipe down by your trainer.

Healthy Eating that Works
Practical, Realistic Eating Plans

We can provide 'best choices' from many of the leading supermarkets and coffee chains if required and even help select menu items from your chosen restaurants.
The key is to work with each guest so that their programme is achievable. If you do wish to food prep or explore a particular diet in advance detail then we are more than happy to provide more in-depth levels of detail and advice; everyone is different.
Above all, the most important aspect of any healthy eating programme is to understand its basis, the short term objective and the long term consideration of nutrient intake upon all aspects of health.
Our Team can even help with Menu Selections from Restaurants, Coffee Chains and Supermarkets.
