Our Founder

"Define Your Ethos"

Hi, my name is Shane Raymond DFAC Pro and CEO of Body Ethics Gym. Body Ethics is the culmination of a life’s work in the health and fitness industry and truly represents the next step for me, for the industry and my team. Body Ethics opened its doors in Hitchin in 2020 with a vision of best in class coaching and to build a community for anyone willing to commit to making a change in their life.

My journey started with a former British Bodybuilding Champion, a love for resistance training and the hunger to be better tomorrow than I am today. I have learnt many lessons as a natural bodybuilder, foremost that hard work pays off! Applying this ethos to other aspects of my life has defined who I am as a competitor, business leader and most recently a father. Great things do not come without sacrifice, knowing this I committed completely to my vision of competing and started down the path to become the coach I am today allowing me freedom and the opportunity to share my knowledge in helping others achieve their fitness goals.

Gym Manager

I’ve known Shane for well over 7 years now, we first met as I came to him regarding PT and have continued that on to this day. Having worked with him for so long, I knew I could invest into Shane and, more importantly, Body Ethics.

My training has mainly been weight training and included positive nutritional habits to help me lose over eight stone – I was 24 stone back then, so I know the importance exercise and nutrition can have!

Hi, I’m Ella. I started working at Body Ethics on reception and Body Ethics truly became a second home to me. With a degree in musical theatre I have a huge passion for the arts. Equally I am very passionate about the gym and self development.

Training in the gym has become a vital part of my lifestyle and my self-care and I hope to continue to build my strength and fitness with the help of the coaches at Body Ethics.

I work on reception here at Body Ethics.

I would say that my interests include personal development as fitness is a big part of my life now, due to Body Ethics giving me the opportunity to work and train in an organised and friendly environment.

Before joining Body Ethics I went to college to study sports coaching and whilst working and training here has given me the chance to improve on my overall physical strength and self-confidence, I believe it will also help me discover the next steps towards my future.
