Reach Fitness London is Boutique gyms’ first feature facility. It is a leading gym for group fitness, personal training and sports conditioning; a thrilling hub for challenge, fun and attainable goals. Reach is the true definition of a fitness community. It is where strong friendships grow through a mutual desire to train hard and achieve results. Reach trainers are exceptional professionals. They identify their clients’ strengths and weaknesses and create a motivating environment that commands success.
Over 400 dedicated members train with Richard Tidmarsh and his experienced team in the London gym. Rich has a dazzling CV, but is the most grounded, approachable guy we have had the pleasure of liaising with. He completed his degree at Loughborough University and had a successful elite level rugby career. Rich went on to work with athletes at Reebok and launched the brand Reach Fitness in 2005. He is now recognised as one of the leading voices in the UK fitness industry.
Reach Fitness London opened in 2011 as one of the first independent group training facilities in the capital. In creating his unique gym space and training ethic, Rich has built up a national and international client base that has included England Rugby International James Haskell, UFC Fighter Jimi Manuwa and GB Beach Volleyball players Jody Gooding and Gregg Weaver. Rich has also worked alongside a host of professional athletes and famous faces in the world of music and television. Rich and the brand Reach are now supported by leading international firms including Under Armour, Optimum Nutrition and Bulletproof Coffee.
With over 10 years experience, Rich has delivered more than 10,000 one-to-one training sessions. He has the passion, knowledge and expertise to push his clients to their limits. Reach’s inspiring, innovative equipment, and wide variety of high-octane group workouts cater for all fitness abilities.
Classes are diverse and unique, intense and challenging, but always focused on fun. From the fitness fundamentals to full-body conditioning blasts, there is something for everyone. Reach‘s Primal Yoga programme for strength and flexibility is one of many hugely popular workouts. It is their very own unique blend of Yoga, Animal Flow and bodyweight training that brings out the frogs and lizards to the hottest tunes.
Reach’s unique features spread far and wide, way beyond the gym in Clapham. Clients can access Training on Demand workouts, designed exclusively by Rich, that run alongside their normal training regime and can be performed anywhere in under 15 minutes. There are also Reach holidays to be taken in stunning locations. What better way to focus on fitness than to head to the beautiful Balearic Islands to train with Rich and the team? Members can stay in a luxury 5* villa, work out at the on-site gym and local beach, then recover with meals cooked by a gourmet chef and some snoozing around the pool.
Reach Fitness is a way of life for its London clients. Memberships and training packages are tailored to the individual’s needs and busy lifestyle, and there are benefits aplenty to be enjoyed from partnerships, in the city and online, with a range of international brands. Reach offers on-site sports massage and dry needling, and treatments which both members and non-members can benefit from to help recover from training, improve postural problems and treat injuries.
“My aim is to pass on this passion and my knowledge on to all my clients. Above all, I try to understand each client, but the real trick is to make hard work fun.”
