S.H.A.P.E. Fitness was established in 2007 by Company Director Wayne Lewis. Wayne has a wealth of experience in the Exercise & Fitness industry, dating back from when he was a teenager. At the age of 13, he was representing his school & county of Sussex at the National Athletics Championships in both track & field events. This is where he became the Long & Triple Jump champion as well as a runner-up in the 100 & 400 metre track events.
At 14 years of age
Wayne signed for professional football club Tottenham Hotspur where he spent 4 memorable years. He had the privilege & honour of training with some of the greatest players this country has ever witnessed. It was very clear to the eye that Wayne was simply a natural at sport, however what made him different from so many others, was his willpower to succeed. Throughout his life he has based himself on 100% commitment, dedication, hard work & his ability to make sacrifices where required in order to reach his goals.
Above all this
Wayne's belief is all about having fun... No matter how competitive we can all be... I think we enjoy the camaraderie as much as anything. It's about getting out there, exercising & making new friendships along the way, no matter what age, body type or fitness level you are at.
After Several Years
After several years out from participating in sport (mainly due to an horrific injury he sustained while playing football) he pursued a career as a Branch & Area Sales Manager in retail... However, he soon realised he needed to return to college & further study his love for the industry he called his passion.
2 years later
S.H.A.P.E. Fitness was founded, enabling Wayne to use his knowledge & expertise to help educate, motivate & inspire people to believe that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. The Company motto is: "Focusing on a Lifestyle that will last 4ever" Because we believe that exercise & fitness should not have an expiration date, but merely should be a way of life. Wayne's motto's are simple, "If you want something that bad, You will find a way"; "If you don't, Then you will find an excuse". So why don't you "leave your excuses at home" & make that change you've always wanted. But remember to have fun & enjoy the journey along the way.
