We believe that health and fitness are not 'one-dimensional'. At the Nutrition and Training Academy, we don’t just focus on the physical exercise aspect of fitness - we believe that for someone to achieve their full potential, and become the best version of themselves, they need to focus on their fitness, nutrition, and mindset. Here we offer people the chance to do just that, and because everyone is different, we create plans to suit the individual.  

If you feel like you don’t have the energy, confidence, and motivation to make you achieve your goals and give you that unstoppable confidence you deserve, then you need a guide to show you the way and strip down the refuse dump that is poor advice and information we are bombarded with day-in-day-out. Pride in ourselves is what makes us achieve and flourish, and you can get that ‘seize-the-day’ confidence by working with us. 

We understand that getting the right work-life balance is incredibly important, but we also know that having a healthy body makes us feel good. It raises our self-esteem, boosts our confidence, and makes our bodies better equipped to fight off infection which means fewer sick days and more opportunities to get that promotion or enjoy spending time with family and friends. So, we have not only got a facility where members can participate in semi-private personal training onsite, but we also offer online coaching. Have a look at the services we offer to find out which will work best for you.

Nutrition & Training Academy (formerly Switch Academy) was founded by Chris Patch and has been designed to give people a chance to not only achieve amazing results, but also to give members the tools they need to maintain those results long-term. Chris has been working within the fitness industry for over 15 years, and in that time he has built up his knowledge through a combination of formal training and experience whilst helping his clients achieve results that have not only improved their health and fitness but made a positive change to their everyday lives. Chris believes that improving someone's fitness is not just about turning up to the gym a couple of times a week, doing a workout, and leaving it at that - it is about looking at the big picture.

Hear What Others Have to Say

Thank you for all your help.  I couldn’t have done it without you. I feel much more confident in myself, at the gym, and for my holiday.


Physically I have lost over 8kgs and gained strength (gains on measurement to chest/legs and losses to waist).  Mentally I feel awesome that I am on the way to achieving what I want. 


I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for me.  Thank you for all the laughs, training sessions, getting me to the British Powerlifting Final, the life advice and check-ins.
