Richard Taylor

CEO

Hello, and welcome to my site! I’m Rich and I’m the owner of Tiger Fitness and the Functional Fitness suite, based in Thetford, Norfolk.

I’ve always had a keen interest in health and fitness and have trained in various ways over the years. From putting on size through strength and weight training, to losing it from high intensity interval training using just body weight exercises!

I run the Functional Fitness Suite in my local area and specialise in Circuit Training as well as express HIIT classes, other classes I provide and Tabata body weight classes, core and boxercise.

The Suite is a bespoke fitness room which you can hire hourly for private use, it’s exceptional for those interested in their health an fitness but are not keen on a gym environment.

Private Hire enables you to come and work at your own leisure. Play the music you want to listen to without head phones getting in the way, train how you want to train. Not have to wait for equipment to become available. Feel comfortable in what you do without being judged and receive help from myself, if needed.

Stacey Owen

Instructor

I have a very diverse fitness background. In school my favourite subject being sports and come school sports days I would enter every event and win quite a few too.

Moving on from that I joined the military and I was named ‘runner up for best PT’ during my training. While I was serving I played a wide variety of sports at all levels within the military. After leaving the service I played netball for Thetford and I joined Thetford Athletic Club where I coached in speed and endurance.

When I wasn’t coaching I enjoyed taking part in cross country events for the club, something which I still take pleasure in today. I also enjoy OCR (obstacle course racing) I race for Team Kitbrix and their partners Kitbox and AM sports. I have had a good number of podium finishes in OCR and I have also placed well in the UK Spartan and mudstacle leagues.

In 2015 I was named UK Spartan female champion and I have even raced at the world championships in USA and Canada in 2015/16 in the elite wave and the team events. I still work within the MOD and that gives me the opportunity to take part athletic events with the military representing the civil service.

When I’m not racing I also take part in Thetford’s weekly parkrun where I have recently become a run director who organises the weeks event. My latest achievement is qualification in fitness instructing where I hope to use my experience to help other achieve their own goals.

Feel free to ask me any questions about OCR's, Athletics and my classes within Tiger Fitness.

Stephanie Wilson

Strength and Power Instructor

My name is Stephanie, I am a wife and a mother of two small kids and two giant huskies. I love all things food and never want to compromise on taste to get the results I am looking for. I love to read a good book and being active is a must for me and my family.

I started out in fitness when my youngest was a little over two years old. Like many I felt depressed, had low self-esteem and was constantly trying to find something that worked for me while still being able to give my family 100%.

I found that this was certainly not a walk in the park and it was discouraging. As I bought expensive product after, expensive product, only to realise I was not finding the results I was looking for.

That’s when I had enough of yoyo dieting, and quick fixes and expensive in-home products and made myself a priority. I’d been training for 2 years before I decided to step into the fitness world.

I started training with a fitness professional and this is when I knew my love for the fitness and nutrition was going to help me help others. I graduated from Kaplan University where I studied Nutrition and received my bachelor’s degree. As I was in university I continued training over the course of 3 years and found my niche in strength and power performance. In my last year of my degree program I decided that I wanted to become a fitness professional. I am now a certified fitness professional through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and absolutely love every minute of training.

I currently run the Strength and Power classes here at Tiger Fitness and look forward to seeing you soon.
