Personal Trainers

Rob Smith

Rob founded R8 Fitness in July 2013 and has been a full-time freelance Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist since 2004.
His passion for health and fitness began at a very young age which doesn’t seem to have faded with time. Now with over 30 years of learning and training, his fitness classes are second to none.
Rob’s vast experience and knowledge have led him to work with various companies and clientele including:
Jordan Fitness, International rugby players, Olympic and world-class rowers, swimmers, triathletes, plus bodybuilders and physique competitors in various categories, both male and female.
Rob also worked with Hurstpierpoint College for 7 years, running the college gym and providing strength and conditioning and match-day physio and first-aid to their rugby, athletics, hockey and netball teams. He also set up a sports injury clinic to assess and advise appropriate actions and treatments for pupils.

Rob’s passion and enthusiasm for his strength, fitness and physique have led him to compete in Indoor Rowing, Bodybuilding and Strongman in recent years. He has set 9 different World Records in Indoor Rowing (look him up on Youtube “Rob Smith rowing”) and has two trophies and top placings in the UKBFF British bodybuilding finals 2014.

Sports massage


Katie offers professional sports massage treatments to local people – whether you are a competitive athlete, a weekend athlete, or just enjoy working out at R8!
R8 Fitness on Friday afternoons and Tuesday evenings.
R8 Fitness clients receive a reduced rate on their first treatment – £40 for a 60-minute treatment.

Why opt for a sports massage treatment?

  • Helps you recover from injury and reduce your likelihood of re-injury
  • Helps to reduce muscle tightness or imbalance, before it causes you discomfort or injury
  • Helps you recover faster after a workout (or an event), helping you to train more regularly and to a higher intensity

How does sports massage help?
Sports massage is based on classical Swedish massage with the addition of more advanced soft tissue techniques. It aims to identify and reduce stress and tensions within the soft tissues of the body – i.e. your muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues; this is achieved through assessing, palpating, manipulating, stretching and strengthening the soft tissues.
