Opened by industry leading Personal Trainer Richard Tidmarsh (@RichTidmarsh on Instagram) in Clapham North in 2011, Reach Fitness has become one of London’s leading gyms for Group Fitness, Personal Training and Sports Conditioning.

Following on from a degree at Loughborough University, Rich launched the ‘Reach’ brand in 2006 building up a national and international client base including England Rugby player James Haskell & UFC Fighter Jimi Manuwa.

Opening the Reach doors in 2011, Rich has gone on to create a unique gym space that is now home to the likes of Jamie Roberts (Wales & Harlequins Rugby) & James Horwill (Australia & Harlequins Rugby) as well as famous faces including Professor Green, Vogue Williams, Jessie Ware and Gethin Jones.

Reach is the ‘go to’ brand if you want to be challenged, have fun and hit personal goals. Over 400 dedicated members of #TeamReach train in the 5,000 square foot Clapham gym, equipped with the latest cutting edge equipment used to create a workout that will push you to your limits in a group training environment.

John O’Farrell – May Contain Nuts

‘May Contain Nuts’ is a funny, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny book. It starts out as a farce,  an almost biting satire on ridiculously competitive urban upper middle class parents hot-housing their children into Prokofiev appreciation and contract bridge, children scheduled, tutored and stimulated; never left alone to do ‘whatever’, never let go.
