Coached is the creation of local fitness entrepreneurs Sol Gilbert and Alan McGuinness, founders of the award-winning and multisite fitness space Underground Gym. Their new concept is aimed at those who want to improve their health and fitness but may not feel comfortable in a traditional gym.

Co-founder Alan McGuiness says: “We realise that there are a lot of people out there that want to commit to a healthier life but are stuck in a rut or worried about making that change, concerned about judgemental looks in gyms or that it may be too difficult, and stressed that they may fail.”

Coached is rooted in a holistic approach that aims to work with both mind and body. Alan says: “When we talk about getting you into shape, we’re not just talking about the body. We’re talking mindset, attitude and emotional fitness, too.

“It’s not just about what you do in our four walls. It’s how you move outside of them, how you fuel yourself, and how you deal with stress and recovery. At Coached we want to empower lifelong health, wellness, and mental fitness. We help our members achieve this through a field-tested fusion of education, honesty, and empathic accountability.”
