About Manos

Manos has always nurtured the talents in others…fostering Commando Spirit as a Physical Training Instructor in the Royal Marines, helping children to take the plunge as an ASA Swim Teacher, leading adults down their first black run as member of the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors…the list is as long as it is diverse!


One thing that has remained the same throughout his career and that is the constant support and confidence he provides during his classes and mentorship.

Among the first to pioneer Crossfit in the UK back in 2008, Manos has always strived to push his knowledgebase further and not one for accepting any one definition of fitness other than his own, he branched into Forrest Yoga under the teaching of Jambo Truong in 2013.


“I’m grateful for the Teachers in my life and their willingness to share freely the gifts and knowledge they have worked so hard for”


Manos discovered Kit Laughlin’s revolutionary Stretch Therapy in 2015, and is super excited to bring this extraordinary therapy and wealth of information and experience to the North East.
