Hatha and Vinyasa flow Yoga - with Davina

Hatha comes from two words – Ha stands for sun and Tha is the moon. So it’s two forces – the active and masculine force of the sun and the feminine and receptive energy of the moon – that join together to purify the body. Vinyasa is about linking the movement of the postures to the breath. Vinyasa yoga gives a lot of importance to the journey between the postures; while Hatha yoga is about the postures only. This yoga with its flowing movement and fast pace, builds heat in the body and stretches the muscles of the body. Like all styles of yoga, Vinyasa has both mental and physical benefits. Physically, toxins are released and your body re-energised. Mentally, the synchronized breathing relaxes your mind and helps to release any blockage of energy flow throughout your body.

I teach and embrace Yoga, in order to share with others so that it can also support their own individual journeys.

I come from the best land down under (that is New Zealand for the misinformed, don’t believe the Aussies – they are just jealous). I have been a fitness instructor/personal trainer for over 5 years, with the last 2 years at The 52 Club. I believe that exercise should be enjoyed so I try my best to make it fun. With my keen interest in martial arts and nutrition I am guaranteed to keep you “Fighting Fit”.

When I am not at the gym you will probably find me watching or participating in some sort of sporting event. Everyone should be aware that my taste in music is widely remarked upon and that I am notoriously bad at press-ups.

Personal training

I have been helping my clients achieve sustainable results in health & wellbeing for over 4yrs. My focus is helping people to make simple, constructive changes to their nutrition, lifestyle and activity level. I provide individually tailored, progressive coaching that allows them to consistently achieve positive results.

I offer support with body composition (fat loss & muscle gain), improving posture, increasing strength, speed, power & stamina, as well as correcting exercise technique.

Sessions are fun and interesting as well as effective. Make training with me the first step on your path to a healthier, fitter you!!

I now am only available 1 weekend per month, but will be delivering a boxing based class on the Saturday mornings that I am in - email me if you want to book joe.depina84@gmail.com

I’ve been working in gyms since late 2009, and I haven’t stopped learning and loving every moment of it since. With an adaptive and flexible approach to health and wellbeing, I believe that the gym should be a safe space where we all leave the world at the door and enjoy making our bodies and minds better.

I have been an active personal trainer since 2011, training a wide variety of clients, from muscle gain to weight loss. My main passion is injury prevention, rehabilitation and functional fitness, with a bit of body sculpting too.

I'm also passionate about my studio teaching, where I love to plan and teach all manner of classes, including pilates, kettlebells, spin and meditation. So expect to start seeing more and more of me in the studios.

More than anything, I believe that your health club should be a place for you. It should be a fun facet of your life that you enjoy and anticipate, and my goal is to make that happen for you.

So I’ll see you soon, in the gym.

It was more than 10 years ago that I began working in the world of fitness from working behind the scenes managing clubs to standing at the front, leading the classes. I am trained to teach a whole variety of classes including the international leading Les Mills programs, Body Attack and Body Pump. I'm known for focusing on posture and technique as I'm also working on gaining my Pilates qualification. Seeing everyone progress together to get their results is the ultimate reward for me and I love to be a part of their team.

Body Pump, THE REP EFFECT™ allows us to get all the benefits of resistance training without lifting heavy weights. It’s the key to developing long lean muscles, and it’s also getting rid of some of those weight-training myths. The truth is you can develop toned, lean muscle without lifting heavy weights.

BODYPUMP gives you a total body workout, it is an effective way to get – and stay – in shape. It uses the effect of high repetitions with much less weight to fatigue the muscles – and it’s muscle fatigue, not muscle load, that tones and strengthens.

I love the simple things in life, gym (obviously), nights outs, singing (and no I don’t have a good voice - but that won’t stop me). And I know, my name is can be difficult to pronounce, so you can just call me Giov.

But enough from me, I hope to see you around the gym sometime soon.

The 52 Club team have been a very welcoming and supportive environment from the day I started. I’ve always had an interest in health and fitness which is why I wanted to start working in this environment. The fact that I have spent most of my free time at the gym since I was 16 years old really indicates how passionate and eager I am to enjoy a career in health and fitness. My main goals for the future are to achieve my level 2 in fitness instructing and then level 3 in personal training.

Going to the gym isn’t my only satisfaction in life. I’m a huge lover of music and enjoy travelling. I have one philosophy when it comes to training and getting yourself in the best position physically and mentally, and that is that if you stay dedicated, focused and consistent, you WILL see results.

 I feel very driven and inspired to achieve and constantly improve at something that I love doing, and the fact that I’m being paid to do something I love is a bonus.
