Jon Bond the director of Storm Fitness Academy

Jon Bond BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE, QTS

Founder and Fitness Director

About Jon

My number one passion is exercise and physical activity. In 2012, I founded Storm Fitness Academy Ltd so I could share my passion with other fitness enthusiasts. When I qualified as a PT in 1999 I was full of enthusiasm but I didn’t really know what to do next. There wasn’t any post-graduate support. I had to figure everything out for myself which meant I made loads of mistakes and my progress in the industry was very slow. Although my CV looks good I can assure you it has been no easy ride and I believe it would have been so much easier if I had been part of a community with a coach to help guide me along the way.

George Horlock

Tutor and Assessor

About George

I’ve always been active since I was old enough to walk. My childhood was filled with gymnastics, martial arts, rock climbing and outdoor adventure holidays. I joined a gym at 16 and instantly knew I wanted to help others feel more comfortable in a gym environment. I went to college and got my Level 3 Personal Training qualification along with a sports massage therapy qualification. I then started training clients and haven’t looked back since. Helping students and clients achieve their goals is my greatest passion, and it’s never too late or too early to get started! After meeting Jon Bond and learning about Storm Fitness Academy and its success, I joined the team and became an assessor to help guide students down the same path as myself.
