Darren Lee

A former elite cyclist, Darren is internationally renowned as a specialist in cycle-based power concept training for athletes from all sports, working  as a consultant to top cycle studios and strength and conditioning coaches all over Europe.

Inspired by the gift of a bianchi mondial bike when he was 14, he began cycling at an elite level just four years later for the UKs team Raleigh Banana. He progressed through various criterium and indoor leagues before signing a professional contract with road cycling Team Andalucia Cajasur in 2001 and raced competitively with the team in Spain until retiring from pro cycling in 2012.

An expert in biomechanical and physiological power production, his work motto reflects his racing style: "Life is just one long hill...so keep climbing.”

Rachel perry

Rachel is a on mission to encourage more women to get into cycling.

After years of feeling self-conscious, Rachel credits cycling with changing her life by giving her the confidence and discipline to get fit again after putting on weight while having children.

Initially training at her gym’s cycling studio, she started commuting by bike and eventually began riding regularly with a group of cyclists. Having completed her fitness training and taking part in RPM and Sprint events, she is now an advocate of power-based rides and believes in training smart, not hard.

Her passion, unconditional love for cycling and ability to adapt to suit all needs and fitness levels mean Rachel is in demand as a trainer.

Mel Thomas

Fitness all-rounder Mel brings the same passion and energy to physical training that compelled him to pursue a successful career in competitive boxing and American Football.

Having competed nationally and internationally for more than 30 years, Mel is in demand as a fitness instructor and trainer. He has been a guest presenter at Club La Santa since 2013 as part of the Bodyworks Week of Fitness and also helps deliver the annual Bodyworks Nyborg fitness weekend in Copenhagen.

As well  as presenting CicloZone workouts, Mel is in demand as a personal trainer and is a regular guest presenter at Beachbody Insanity Live.
