About Us


The Gymrun Story

I am a qualified teacher and personal trainer. I have a degree in Exercise & Sports Science from Exeter University and a PGCE in PE from Bath University. 

From 2001-2016, I worked as a PE teacher, Head of PE and Director of Sport in state and independent schools. In 2016, I set up Gymrun to improve physical health, literacy and well-being in more pupils in more schools. Three years later, I set up the Gymrun Group, forming partnerships to share and scale this work.

Essential. Transparent. Inclusive. Sustainable. Gymrun is a proven vehicle for building a physical health culture in all schools.
