Owner, Coach, Chief Programmer and Business Development
About Ross ThompsonHi, My name is Ross, Owner, Creator and Coach of "Warrior Women" and "Strip and Rip" I am 32 years old, I am the fiancé of Sarah, and I am a proud dad of two young boys, Jake and Dexter, who are the most awesome little boys a dad could ask for. Sarah is not only my life partner but my business partner who keeps things organised here at RT Fitness and co-coaches our signature programs alongside me. It has never "been easy" for me as some might look at me and think. Genetics only goes so far and I've had a chest and peaks since I was about 10... but I've also got FP... Fat Potential... I've learned the hard way that I can't eat what I want and I've made some massive mistakes in my training by trying to do it all my self, my way... [···]

I’m also found Co-Coaching the signature programs alongside Ross and on Social Media, scheduling, and a touch of blogging! I also give some of our clients Pads sessions for that extra burn!

Coach - RT Durham
About Daniel BreenHello, my name is Daniel and I am the Coach of "Team Carnage" also known as Captain Carnage! I was 17 when I first started to take an interest in health and fitness having always struggled with weight and health issues from a young age, I wanted to get things sorted. I’ve experienced both ends of the spectrum first hand; having gone from being fat as a young teen to being skinny and very unhealthy as I got older. All I focused on between the ages of 13 -16 was losing weight. However, due to doing this in a very unhealthy manner I felt worse than I ever had when I was fat. I couldn’t concentrate, I was constantly tired, I developed skin issues and my mood had dipped massively... So I spent a lot of my teenage years not being in a good place either physically or mentally purely through putting pressure on myself to weigh less... Once I left school I was determined to do something about it before I started college. There was only one problem; I had absolutely no idea what I was doing... [···]
Lift weights lose fat…simples!Sarah, Warrior Women member
So far Sarah's progress means she has lost 35lbs...she has followed a strength and physique program for women via the Warrior Women classes to get stronger, get leaner and fitter.
Strip & Rip worked for me…Micky, Strip & Rip Member
Micky had a holiday in Ibiza booked at the end of August so he got himself in gear and really stepped it up a notch via our Strip & Rip classes. In 8 weeks Micky lost an incredible 4% body fat and put on 9lbs of lean muscle tissue.
I’m now in the best shape of my lifeJamie, Strip & Rip Member
Jamie did the Strip & Rip course with great results, his strength has grown so fast. From only doing 1 chin up to hitting 10! His 1 rep max on the deadlift was 160kg and we ended up on a 220kg! Not bad for someone who doesn't hit weights much.
