With a passion for playing in the mountains and being fit & active in general, Steph is fascinated by the human body, athletic performance, and by the relationships between exercise, health, well being, food, and performance. Steph has been living in the French Alps for 15 years, and it's fair to say there aren't many Alpine sports she doesn't enjoy! An all-mountain 'athlete', keen trail runner, cyclist, skier, climber, Steph loves pretty much anything involving a physical challenge ... as well as chocolate, red wine and yoga! Qualified in several inter-related sport and physical therapy disciplines, Steph blends the latest personal training methods, nutrition info, and sports therapy practises, with a harmonious mix of 'anatomical' yoga, massage and healthy eating. Equally comfortable putting you through your paces lifting man-sized weights as running a restorative yoga class, her most geeky side comes out when it comes to preventing / treating injuries, and muscle imbalances.

Charlotte is our consultant nutritionist and also a primary school teacher. Fluent in both English and French, Charlotte is the expert on all things good for you, as well as the girl you'll meet running our kids club. When not heavily involved in the Chamonix Gym, or planning her upcoming nuptuals, Charlotte is another keen and sporty chick - aiming for her first sub 4hour marathon in London in April 2011.

Ruth is a totally enthusiastic, all natural, all Scottish lass - with truly magic hands! Chamonix’s favourite masseuse runs Chamofix Massage and has an undeniable talent for finding your aches and pains and knowing how to melt them away – be it sports massage, Thai yoga massage, or relaxing hot stones. A keen boarder and talented runner, Ruth is in her element in the great outdoors. Ruth - and her dogs! - are currently training for a sub 6 hour Chamonix Marathon.

With a massive number of successful expeditions, first ascents, and first ski descents to be proud of, these guys know mountains. Be Pure Fit work alongside Dream Guides to help you get fit and ready for any skiing / climbing trip or remote adventure. We offer specialist fitness consultancy and training 'holidays' for expeditions and treks. Guy is also a closet geek with a secret talent as a database programmer - cheers!
Charlotte brings ‘cool’ to science, with a phd in sports biomechanics. With 5 years experience working with elite athletes and top skiers, she has all the skills to analyse your biomechanical strengths and weaknesses - to improve your technique, performance and prevent injuries. When not wiring athletes up to electrodes, Charlotte keeps busy cycling, skiing, and running around Chamonix ... as well as being a mum to Felix, 1!
Jane owns and runs Chikara - our favourite technical sports clothing brand, aimed primarily at female cyclists and runners. Jane embraces everything she does with 150% passion and Chikara is going places. We saw it first! When not ski touring, running, or indulging in her favourite hobby, road biking, Jane can be found at the Chamonix Gym, in the yoga studio or having a massage. If you don't know Jane yet, she's easy to spot - she'll be dressed from head to toe in Chikara!
