onesixeight:fitness – launched by Becky White in 2010 – provides personal training and fitness solutions as well as nutritional advice to people in the Loughborough area.

Becky successfully pitched her idea to win an award in the University’s 2011 Business Plan Competition.  Specialising in sessions for beginners as well as those who need more advanced training programmes, Becky now offers a wide range of services including one-to-one sessions, online personal training, and a beginners’ running group. She also provides exercise guidance via two mini-trampoline workout DVDs and over 60 YouTube videos.

By the start of the London 2012 Olympics, she had exceeded the goal she had set herself two years earlier of helping over 10,000 people improve their health and well-being through exercise and healthy eating.

She is also en route to appear in the Guinness Book of Records, having encouraged more than 300 University staff and students to take part in a record-breaking bounce-athon.

Long-term, she plans to launch a onesixeight:fitness gym in Leicestershire – before branching out nationwide.

onesixeight:fitness was named Small Business of the Year by Oak FM’s Pride of Loughborough Awards sponsored by East Midlands Airport in 2012.
