We believe in a world where you have total freedom to choose who you want to be, without judgement. 
To experiment. To express yourself. To be brave and grab life as the extraordinary adventure it is. 
So we make sure everyone has an equal chance to discover all the amazing things they’re capable of – no matter who they are, where they’re from or what the strongest version of themselves looks like. We exist to give you the confidence and guidance to be whoever you want to be.
Forward Thinking Fitness
MACHINES is A place for all
Our audience (AKA you) is incredibly diverse. And we do everything we can to help you find your fitness. Our role is to help you discover your true potential, focusing on your strengths and helping you overcome obstacles. 

Body positivity

It’s vital for us to promote a healthy body image – we’re not about conforming to any stereotypes – so we work with our clients to achieve what THEY want for themselves. The spectrum of what’s healthy is considerable broader than what the media portrays, we only concern ourselves with what is medically proven. The rest is down to what YOU want from yourself.

The Next Generation
Your childhood shapes your future, what they learn today is who they become tomorrow. Teaching children about confidence, self worth, strength, working with others and having a positive mindset is just as important as anything academic.
"We believe the Children are our Future"
Our Team
Our Team at MACHINES is diverse, each coming from different backgrounds, having experience in vastly different areas. However, every Coach at MACHINES has at least one thing in common. They were all clients of ours before they became coaches.

That one fact makes our team an incredibly powerful force for change when it comes to helping you. Because, at one time they were EXACTLY where you are now!
Every coach knows what its like to be a client, walking through the door of a place they have never been before, having fears of what to expect. They have each lived their own journey towards a better version of themselves. Whats more, they enjoyed the process so much that they made the commitment to help others enjoy the same success. 

Most personal trainers out there are fresh out of school with just a 6 week qualification under their belt, what can they possibly know about juggling all of life's priorities at that stage?

Our team are Parents, Spouses, Carers, Business owners and most of all people with real life experience. They know your struggle and most importantly they have been where you are now! They have first hand experience of success, but not only this. To become a MACHINES Coach they each needed to complete a minimum of a 2 year internship learning directly from the founder of MACHINES.

John Machin
Prior to founding MACHINES over a decade a go, John  worked as a chemist at a global pharmaceutical company. 
His scientific background makes him uniquely placed to deliver the latest scientifically proven training and nutrition to our clients.

Kathy Shannon
Kathy has over a decade of training experience under John, learning directly from him. Prior to becoming a coach Kathy was a hair dresser. This makes her uniquely placed to understand her clients on a personal level. Anyone who trains with Kathy will tell you she just gets you!

Alison Nuttall
Alison met John at an NHS wellbeing conference. As the head of cheshire east wellbeing Alison saw great value in the lessons John was teaching. Alison suffered with terrible back pain from a bulging disk. Through the MACHINES methods she is now pain free and one of the strongest women you will likely meet. This chance encounter changed her life and inspired her to pass on what she's learned.

Graham Cooper
Graham was Johns first ever client and its fair to say he has a real passion for fitness. Most weekends you will find Graham running a marathon, Mud run, obstacle race or something generally crazy. Graham helps Machines to deliver world class group personal training sessions right here at our Congleton HQ.

Jo Li
 Jo met John at a Ninja warrior party. Unhappy with her low body weight she enlisted Johns help. In the last few years she has learned more about nutrition and healthy mindset than most coaches learn in a career. Jo also works in major injuries for a high level law firm giving her unique perspective on the importance of health and rehabilitation to quality of life.

Romilly Wills
In true MACHINES tradition Romilly has learned directly from John and Kathy. Prior to becoming a coach Romilly worked in the field of mental health.
So many choices we make around what we eat, when we train and the lifestyle we lead are routed in our emotional and mental wellbeing. Romilly is uniquely placed to help you to gain mastery over your choices.
