Who we are

Our Story

It’s all about growing…from little acorns mighty trees grow!

Our story…In the beginning, LIFT started with just Tiff…she was never much a fan of fitness, she didn’t feel the need to factor a fitness routine into weekly life. Then one day we were told to stay at home, aka lockdown 1 and the onset of the lockdown bulge!

She began to start lifting some of Darran’s weights (the brains behind LIFT, or so he thinks!) Darran, a fitness professional with over 30 years experience wrote her a fitness plan and along with her cousin, Natalie, began to train 3 – 4 times per week.

Tiff immediately fell in love with LIFTing, and after a few months of seeing the changes in both herself and Natalie decided to find out more…not long down the line, and with a Personal Training qualification in tow, along with her teaching and counsellor qualifications, she decided to build a studio gym in the garden. Specialising in teacher females to lift free weights, Tiff adapted her approach to incorporate mindset coaching within her PT sessions, something her clients not only benefited from but, most importantly went away feeling positive and ready to take on the day ahead.

When we rolled into a second lockdown, Tiff had clients whom she could no longer train in the gym and the idea of a cold wintery park, for most, was not ideal. She began to train her clients online, offering strength training and legs, bums and tums classes. She did not want to see their fitness and mental health suffer during gym closures.

Over the following few months LIFT emerged, and the idea of encompassing not only a fitness routine but a mindset and nutrition regime seemed of the up most importance to ensure all her clients where active. A website was built a long with a membership area, in which clients could gain access to the LIVE workout classes, recordings, nutrition support and mindset coaching.

We have since gone on to recruit a team of fitness professionals from across the UK and World to support people in all areas of life.

Together we bring you the HOME HEALTH club with access to online LIVE classes along with 24/7 workouts for you to choose from, nutrition support and mindset coaching. In addition we can provide you with a Personal Trainer who you can train with you from the comfort of your own home or a small private gym.

The idea behind, LIFT has always been to support people in not just their physical health but their emotional wellbeing. After all, our mind, body and spirit form a whole and we need to ensure our alignment is on point in order to live a full life.

Tiff will always be at the heart of LIFT, greeting every new member personally on application, to hosting some online classes and personal training.

Our mission

Hey, my name is Thomas Stockton and I am a personal trainer and online coach with a passion for health and fitness. My journey began 9 years ago and my time in the gym consisted of anything from bodybuilding to powerlifting style training. I later discovered bodyweight fitness which I became a big fan of due to being able to workout anywhere, learn cool skills and most importantly because its fun! I now take a more holistic approach to training through strength, mobility and endurance work.

Yoga, FitSteps and Zumba Instructor

I’ve been instructing various classes for 30 years from Rosemary Conley, Aerobics, Step, Zumba, Fitsteps, Yoga and Pilates. As a mum of three, I’ve found yoga has given me so much physically and mentally, it’s just a case of getting on the mat. Yoga improves balance, strength and flexibility. It reduces stress, insomnia and unwinds body and soul. Yoga is something everyone can join and enjoy.
