With over 100 employees, the Poole-based company has trained 3,000 people in the last year to qualify as fitness instructors. It has 16 academies around the country, and it partners with gym operators such as Fitness First and David Lloyd to help personal trainers obtain jobs at the end of their course. Under founder and chief executive Jonathan Davies, 40, sales reached £8.6m this year, and private equity firm LDC acquired a c50% stake in a £20m deal in October.
