Meet the Trainers
Felix Deer – LemonBody Founder
Captain Felix Deer joined the Army in 1985 and served in a number of Training Officer roles, qualifying as a Unit Fitness Officer in 1986. Since leaving the Army in 1994, Felix has sold property, built houses and flown airliners for a living, but has always maintained his keen interest in Fitness.
A pioneer in mixed ability group fitness workouts, he freely admits to having “mostly hated” P.E at school and is of the firm belief that making workouts fun and catering for all abilities is vital in helping people get fit and stay happy and healthy.
His hobbies include Flying, Hiking, Rock Climbing, Weight Lifting, Trail Running and Conkers. Felix is 52 and lives in Surbiton with his dog, Ning Nong.
Will – Advanced Instructor
Will was an aircraft engineer in the Royal Navy, joining straight from school and serving for 24 years. Will has spent a good deal of his time keeping fit whilst onboard various Naval ships and also a lot of time operating with the Royal Marines. He has lived in snow holes (chilly), operated in the jungles of Sierra Leone (hot) and has conducted operational tours of both Iraq and Afghanistan (very hot).
Will qualified as a personal trainer specialising in strength and sports conditioning and GP and exercise referral. Aligning work with a passion was key when deciding on a new career and Will is really enjoying his time working within the fitness industry.
He tries to bring a military slant to his bootcamps which is going down well with the regulars.
Will is a keen sportsman, who loves his water sports, especially windsurfing which he has been doing since the age of 11. Will also managed to represent the Royal Navy at beach volleyball in a tournament in Australia. It was work, honest.
Sean – Advanced Instructor
Sean was given his first training programme by his Father when he was just 13 years old and since then he has had a passion for fitness and exercise.
His work as an actor and model requires Sean to stay fit and in great shape, so it was a natural progression for him to expand his knowledge and qualify as a Personal Trainer in 2012.
Sean has a huge passion for health, sport and fitness and has found Personal Training to be an incredibly rewarding job and very much enjoys instructing our Members at 1000 Calorie BootCamp.
He also has a great deal of experience training within the gym and as an athlete, competing in the Decathlon, Triple Jump and 200m.
Sean lives in Kingston and his hobbies include weight lifting, rock climbing, athletics and eating at Nandos (it’s addictive!)…
David – Advanced Instructor
David became a personal trainer in 2005 and has worked extensively in the fitness industry after graduating from St Mary’s University with a degree in Sports Science.
David started playing sports and exercising at a young age and has played at international level in Rugby Union, playing for Scotland U21’s and Scottish Exiles as well as county and club and teams.

Natasha – Advanced Instructor
After Leaving University in 2011, Natasha decided to pursue a career in Health and Fitness and began running her own Personal training Company, which is very successful.

A former gymnast, Grant has always been passionate about health and fitness and keeps himself in shape with Cross-Fit and regular obstacle assault courses throughout the year. He often brings this experience into his BootCamp Workouts – they’re tough, but Grant prides himself on making his Workouts fun and never boring!
