Kris Ryan Instructor

Kris Gregory

Hi, my name is Kris Ryan and I’ve been working in the fitness industry for over 20 years now.

Anyone that knows me will tell you that personal training and teaching group exercise and physical activity is one of my greatest passions! I’ve taught within the community, at local leisure centres and for a number of health clubs including David Lloyd, Roko and Virgin Active. I am a Personal Trainer and am qualified and experienced in teaching a wide variety of group exercise classes including aerobics, aqua, body conditioning, gym based exercise, indoor cycling, indoor rowing, Interval Training, Kettlebells, Pilates, Step, Stability Ball and Zumba.

My qualifications include:

  • OCR Pilates
  • NVQ Level 3 Diploma – Personal Trainer
  • NVQ Level 3 Diploma – Anatomy & physiology for exercise & health
  • RSA Exercise to Music
  • CYQ Instructing Physical Activity for Ante/Post Natal Exercise
  • CYQ Gym Based Exercise
  • NVQ Kettlebells Exercise
  • Group Indoor Cycling – Loughborough College
  • Speedo Aqua Fitness

In January 2011 I started Kris Fitness delivering 1-2-1 personal training programmes and a range of community based exercise classes across Nottinghamshire.  Kris Fitness expanded to provide a range of other freelance work with groups and businesses including the NHS, local schools and health clubs.

My background includes six years as the Health & Fitness Co-ordinator working across five leisure centres in South Nottinghamshire. My role included managing and developing the group exercise class timetable (roughly 120 classes a week), managing the Exercise for Health programme (formerly GP Referral) and auditioning and recruiting group exercise instructors. I worked closely with a number of partners including Nottinghamshire County Council, Rushcliffe Borough Council and the NHS and secured funding to set up a number of health and fitness initiatives. These initiatives included the MEND (childhood obesity) programme, an exercise programme for Stroke patients, COPD group exercise sessions, youth sports and activities schemes and the Baby Fit programme (group exercise for mothers and their babies).

My business ethos is to provide safe, effective and enjoyable sports and physical activities that are accessible to all members of the community.
