Jo Sullivan

Founder & Head Coach

“This Chick Really Can” and that’s why since 2013 Jo’s been nurturing a community which empowers and supports women to realise that they ‘can’ too! Trained in Kung Fu and Kickboxing, she packs a mean punch and has an even mightier kick. She truly gets powered-up by seeing amazing strong females fly high!

From kettlebell flow to powerful pull ups, a class with Jo is technique driven, dynamic and challenging. She instinctively knows when to keep things simple and when you are ready to turn up the throttle and break beyond that comfort zone. Safe, supportive and sustainable fitness is her approach every time.


Senior Coach

When it comes to working out, Steph means business! Her energy and motivation is infectious! Steph’s dance background adds a certain finesse and elegance to her coaching style.

Whether it’s teaching a ChickBoxing class or introducing a Flow, expect plenty of enthusiasm, power and flair, whilst utilising every piece of equipment to keep the workout fresh and challenging. Steph is The ChickBox’s fully certified pre and post-natal and menopause coach. She also runs our technique driven Run Club Sessions. She is passionate about supporting females to thrive in their fitness, step outside their comfort zone and feel empowered when it comes to their health, fitness and wellbeing.



Naomi loves nothing more than seeing members progress, whether it’s building their confidence to lift those heavier weights or seeing a new member fully embrace our unique and creative training methods. A class with Naomi is perfectly balanced, focused and supportive towards different ability levels – a Kettlebell is never far out of sight!



Sheree, joined the coaching team last year after training with us as a member for over 4 years. Sheree is qualified is a Level 3 Personal Trainer, and is passionate about helping women achieve their fitness goals through personalised coaching and motivational support.

Sheree’s classes are known for their welcoming and encouraging vibe. She focuses on individual goals, helping members master new movement patterns and celebrate their progress. Her favourite exercise to coach is the deadlift, where she loves seeing members confidence grow as they lift heavier weights.

Outside the gym, Sheree loves to stay active: walking, swimming, paddle boarding and entering fitness events. Her positive outlook on life is summed up by her favourite motto: “Just one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.”
