NUYU Fitness Chester was created because people like you weren’t getting the service or results they deserved from the big gyms brands, let’s be honest, nobody knows your name and personal training is an added extra on top of the monthly fees. If you’re not sure what to eat, not sure what to do in the gym, need a little bit of motivation or accountability – even if you have never stepped foot inside a gym before – then NUYU is the gym for you.

“Love NUYU! A perfect setup, all the equipment you could ever ask for, and perfectly formulated programs that have helped me get in the shape I wanted to be in!”

Founder & Head Coach

Ben Collins

Ben was raised in Chester and has a passion for helping others achieve their goals while ensuring that exercise remains fun, exciting and sociable. From a young age, Ben was a keen sportsman but today his life is focused on his young family and his desire to become a leading light in the fitness industry. Ben has taken part in multiple charity events and fitness challenges in recent years and thrives on what can be achieved through mental toughness, hard work and endurance.

Ben is a charismatic, energetic and determined coach whose main focus is to not just ensure that exercise is enjoyable and purposeful but safe as well. Ben believes that anyone looking to achieve amazing results must be adherent, consistent, have the right attitude allied with the correct guidance.

FUN FACT: Ben’s played football in the Europa League. He doesn’t like to talk about it, though!

Trainer & Coach

Sean Dillon

Sean was originally from Port Sunlight on the Wirral before he escaped to the sun-kissed island of Majorca which was his home for three years. He returned to the Wirral before moving to Chester as a young lad. Sean received a life-changing diabetic diagnosis when he was 19 and looking after his own health and well-being became paramount. His personal battle inspired him to help train other people and help them with their own aspirations.

Sean has been part of the NUYU team since 2018 and is hugely popular with our members. He is a perfect fit for the NUYU philosophy which mirrors his own view of discipline and dedication, set alongside an enjoyable journey to better health and fitness.

Away from the gym and personal training, Sean loves to play and watch football – unfortunately supporting Liverpool FC! Just to show that you can eat well while training at the highest level, Sean enjoys a trip to Hickorys and going on long strolls with family and friends.

FUN FACT: Sean used to be the British record holder for the 100m skiERG!

NuYu has completely changed my life. After 3 months I’ve lost nearly 2 stone. I feel so much stronger and more toned. Everyone is really helpful with encouragement and support. A lovely family feel to the place that helps you gain confidence and empowers you. Ben has taught me not just to exercise correctly but with nutrition too, along with lots of great banter! I wish I’d joined sooner! Highly recommended.

Antonia Roberts

This isnt just just a gym its a membership to a family. The team work you hard but you dont realise as you will have such a laugh with them and other members of the nuyu family. You will never feel alone as there are regualr updates of other team members doing really well. If i had to sum up NUYU in 3 words i would say Patient, Motivational and Fun!!

Jennie Helen

Ben is knowledgable, efficient, and very good at his job - definitely one of the best personal trainers around! Not just for his knowledge but his ability to keep clients motivated and consistently hitting personal goals! Highly recommend.

Rob Ward

I was really scared when I joined, I’m unfit, very overweight and had no confidence In Myself. I joined 6 weeks ago and I’ve lost 1 stone and feel fitter and stronger both physically and mentally. I actually enjoy exercising and that is something I never thought would come out of my mouth! I can’t recommend nuyu enough, no matter what your level of fitness, as you will be supported and coached by the fab trainers. My only regret is I didn’t join years ago!
