Chris Nicklin

Chris Nicklin brings a wealth of expertise from his experiences as a Personal Trainer, having delivered over ten thousand one-to-one Personal Training sessions.

Chris has trained a diverse range of clientele throughout his career providing him with a vast range of experience to plan training and nutrition programs for every possible aspect of your lifestyle.

Working with clients such as:

  • Business owners dealing with high pressure, high stress jobs.
  • Athletes who are looking to break into their respective teams or coming back from injury.
  • People who may require speciality programs and care after coming back from major heart surgery.
  • Not forgetting the pre and post-natal mums who either want to stay fit in the run-up to their pregnancy or just can’t seem to shift that extra bit of baby weight.  

Chris has also had huge success in helping people achieve their ideal body transformations, with countless success stories and life-changing experiences for the clients he has trained. 

He specialises in understanding every client’s needs and works his programming and nutrition advice to make sure every client receives the highest level of service possible. 

Chris is excited to bring his wealth of knowledge and experience to Knutsford to succeed in positively impacting on many more lives. 




Chris has found in most recent years, clients are becoming more and more susceptible in having to deal with higher pressure situations in their lives. Therefore, his ethos, as a specialist Personal Trainer believes in offering the whole lifestyle solution, providing his clients with the most efficiently structured programs to achieve unrivaled results.

With this at the forefront of his campaign he has helped to develop market-leading strategies in mindset coaching, to provide the highest adhering levels of commitment to clients exercise and nutrition programs.

His encouraging and supportive approach has been successful with countless clients, creating life-changing habits.

Chris took me on as a client and in a few short weeks he helped me to tone up, get fitter to go hiking and more importantly, bring my blood pressure down as it had been high, bordering on needing tablets to reduce it.
Chris took the time to understand what I wanted to achieve and developed a plan with me to fit in with my busy work lifestyle (planes, trains, office based, dining out, hotel living etc). He then pushed me, encouraged and supported me on the journey.
So sorry he’s moved away, our loss is Knutsford’s gain!


Jenny Hackwell

Since the age of 3 Jenny has trained in Classical Ballet as well as many other styles of dance including Jazz, Contemporary, Spanish and Salsa.

After completing 3 years of full-time training at her local dance school, she then went onto dance professionally with Northern Ballet Company aged 17.

Rehearsing and performing up to 12 hours per day 6 days a week, Jenny fell in love with fitness and supplementing her training with gym-based work to prevent injuries and to strengthen herself further.


Jenny’s biggest achievements are winning gold for GB in 2014 in the International Ballet Competition held in Richmond, Virginia. Jenny was also a finalist in BBC’s Young Dancer competition. She has performed worldwide and danced principal roles she’s always dreamed of.

A new beginning meant that she could focus on helping and inspiring people to tailor their bodies and minds to become strong and powerful through different types of exercise, whether it be strength and conditioning, weight or bodyweight workouts.

Jenny can utilize her international ballet experience at Nxtep with special programs available to provide adult ballet and barre focused workouts.
