I’m Kate Staples, former GB athlete, British record-holder in the pole-vault, and ‘Zodiac’ on Gladiators for 6 years. At the height of my athletics career, I broke my neck during a live arena show – just before I was due to join Team GB at the Sydney Olympics. In spite of serious injury and a long rehab journey, my passion for health and fitness grew and grew.
With over 20 years experience in the fitness industry, I am proud to have launched two successful businesses. Aspire to Greatness offering athletics clubs for kids in schools, which runs in over 40 schools across the Home Counties. Adventure Fitness Camp is an outdoor bootcamp for women which I ran locally for many years and franchised in the UK.
I hold a Master Diploma in Outdoor Fitness Training, Level 3 Premier Training in Advanced Health and Fitness as well as certification in power yoga, TRX, core training, functional movement and resistance training techniques. Since 2000 I’ve been working as a PT and master bootcamp trainer, guiding my clients towards a healthier lifestyle. In 2013, I co-authored Burn Fat Fast with Patrick Holford which follows my low-GI diet approach with fitness for maximum results. I’m currently studying Level 4 Obesity and Diabetes, as well as Level 4 Stroke Rehabilitation to continue my professional journey.
Kate Staples’ World Class Fitness Trainers
Kate utilized all her expertise to create the first Adventure Fitness Camps in the UK and has selected some of the most accomplished and empathetic trainers in the country to run them.
It’s not just about having the highest fitness qualifications, it’s about life experience and how they are with people – that means we value empathy as highly as accomplishment.
Our trainers have a phenomenal range of experience between them, some are Olympic or international athletes and champions in their own right; others train the top British Olympic hopefuls – all are professionals who know how motivate and help you become the best you can be.
It’s fantastic and motivating team, at the very top of their game and we feel lucky to have them on board.
