Sophie Russell
Director, Personal Trainer & Instructor

Sophie brings over 20 years’ experience working as a fitness professional having left the corporate world behind in a bid to bring change to people’s lives in a more personal way. An award winning group exercise instructor & trainer, she brings a desire to educate & a sense of fun to all her sessions, serious nonetheless in her mission to help people improve their physical selves in order to not only feel good in their skin & be able to move through life mobile, confident & strong but also to reap the ongoing rewards of creating positive change.

“I want people, some of whom may never have felt sporty or physically confident, to see just how much they can achieve & what is possible because from this come healthier decisions affecting other areas of their lives”.

Sophie has multiple qualifications & has taught just about every type of class over the years as trends have come & gone but now specialises in sessions that are essentially linked to strength & fitness both inside & out, be it weight training, circuits or Pilates.

A pocket rocket with questionable counting skills…..

Qualifying in 2001, Greg has been involved in fitness for over 20 years, working for many of the UK’s top gyms both as a trainer and a manager.

Throughout that time he has worked with hundreds of clients of all levels with many different goals. With experience in all aspects of health and fitness, he can help you with that extra kick up the bum you may need.

Greg has a history of training athletes and strength based training. He has also been running our successful weight management course over the past 18 months.

You’ll find Greg in the gym most days lifting heavy weights and shouting at himself or others.

Nikki Margetts
Club Secretary / PA

Chances are, if you’ve had any questions or issues Nikki has been the one to respond. She is in charge of all things administrative and accounting, a huge fan of organisation and her ever-growing To Do list.

Being Greg’s wife / partner of over ten years, her most difficult task is keeping on top of his schedule / general dopiness!

You’ll often find Nikki in classes or the gym, trying to stay fit enough to keep up with their three children.

You will normally find Claire with her wellies on, plodding around the farm, tending to her pigs & chickens & looking after her guests in the holiday apartment. Fitness has always been a passion of hers &, over the years, she has attended group classes for pretty much everything you can think of. Claire also loves lifting weights in the gym. Her dream of becoming a fitness instructor came true last year & she has recently qualified to teach Clubbercise & HIIT circuits.

Claire’s wish is to empower people through fitness by making it a fun & friendly space where you ca be yourself & enjoy the exercise you are doing. Improving mood, boosting energy, improving sleep & burning those all important calories. She guarantees you will leave with a smile on your face!

As well as our well equipped gym, Purbeck Fitness Hub offers a weekly schedule of classes for every fitness fan.

Whether you want to dial up the intensity or take a more relaxed approach, work your arms or core, we've got a class with a spot just for you. Create your own personalised schedule by choosing the classes that suit your needs.

Since joining PFH I have noticed a difference in my body fat to muscle ratio. Sophie, Greg and their team work to ensure that members achieve their goals in a fun and safe environment. Individual personal training is second to none, with invaluable advice and compassion thrown in.

The classes are welcoming to all levels of ability and usually end with lots of giggles. I really enjoy going to PFH and my husband comes along to classes too!

Mrs H, Wareham

PFH is a fantastic independent gym with excellent facilities and classes. The team are REAL, supportive and inspiring, whether it be a class or 1:1 you are always made to feel welcome. Working with Sophie on my fitness has been one of the best decisions I've made, she has been nothing but encouraging and supportive of all aspects of my wellbeing, not just my muscles.

I cannot recommend PFH enough, there really is something for everyone, no matter what age or fitness level.


Having trained with Sophie for a number of years joining PFH was an easy decision to make, and I haven't looked back. Classes are varied, welcoming and challenging to all ages and levels of fitness. The gym is well equipped and personalised training programs are available so you get the most out of every workout. 

Sophie has a wealth of knowledge in health, wellness and fitness and the enthusiasm she brings to to every session, from strength training to Pilates is just a little bit contagious.


I joined PFH when it opened in April 2021, run by Sophie and Greg. Plenty of classes, courses and PT, suiting all levels of fitness.

Sophie and Greg always welcoming and ready with advice and any help needed. Small classes, all very popular.

They are continually updating classes and always open to suggestions. Great place to meet new friends, best gym I have ever been a member of, highly recommended.
