ABOUT MOBFIT

WE ARE A TEAM OF FITNESS, YOGA, NUTRITION, MINDFULNESS, AND MASSAGE EXPERTS WHO ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT EMPLOYEE WELLNESS.

Thank you for taking a peek at our website!

We founded MobFit after working in corporate jobs for years. Lack of time and lack of emphasis on health and well being in the workplace were two of the major reasons we struggled with the city jobs. We became frustrated with our working environment and felt there were simple changes that could be made to benefit everyone's wellbeing and allow people to thrive in their work. We took the leap to set up MobFit in 2016, and built a team of amazing individuals who were as passionate as us for improving the health and happiness of office workers. We would love to hear from you!

Mark & Rob

Mark Briant

Founder

Mark has always been a competitive athlete, playing semi-professional rugby for Blackheath RFC where he achieved ‘world class’ fitness rankings, and now competes in Crossfit. Prior to MobFit, Mark worked in banking so understands the challenges of juggling health and fitness with a demanding office job.

 

As well as being a personal trainer, Mark also has a passion for food and is a qualified BTN Nutritionist. He loves discovering new ingredients and combinations that not only taste great but fuel the body and mind for optimal performance. The world of nutrition is a confusing one and he helps clients simplify it, getting the best out of themselves.

Rob Smith

Founder

Rob began learning about fitness as a teenager. An unexplained hip injury caused him to walk with a severe limp for 5 years which led him to discover the gym and weight training during his teenage years. His passion for coaching grew after he founded a rugby team whilst at Manchester University, after the first year he handed over the coaching job to Mark!
Rob loves having variety in training, competing in triathlons, boxing, Crossfit, and ultra marathons. Currently, he is training to run across England (with Mark of course) and is learning Yoga!

Jonny

Jonny has been practising mindfulness and meditation for over 17 years. He began his training in traditional meditation and mindfulness practices in Zen, Vipassana, Yoga and Tai Chi before moving into Mindfulness and Compassion training.

He is recognised on the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations UK listing. This listing recognises teachers that ‘meet the UK Good Practice Guidance for Mindfulness-Based Teaches'.

When not leading one of our mindfulness workshops, you will find Jonny hanging out with his rescue dog, training with his kettlebells, or enjoying nature!

She has extensive Animal Flow and movement training, hence why she is the lead instructor for our 'Primal' class. Alongside the bodyweight moves, she also is a very good Olympic weightlifter and strength trainer. If that's not enough, she has also qualified as a sports and remedial massage therapist!

Jenny

To her, yoga is accessible to all, and there as a tool to help improve your state of mind.

When Jen’s not teaching in Kent and London she likes bouldering, taking nature photography, and cooking up Italian food.
