About Us

My name is Sue Jackson and I live just outside Bath, in the village of Timsbury.

I have been a dedicated sportswoman all my life and have always had an interest in fitness . I  have played lacrosse, netball, volleyball, tennis and squash for various teams over the years and am a keen golfer and walker having 2 exercise hungry dogs. I also regularly trek or cycle in interesting places. It is always good to have a goal or challenge to work towards…

I have attended many gyms over the years mostly in Bath but decided to complete my Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Training exams so that I could pass on my passion for fitness to others and base my gym in the villages to provide a service to people outside of the city.

I have completed many challenges over the years and including cycling from the Vietnam capital to Anchor Watt in Cambodia. Trekking in Costa Rica and Dog sledding in the Arctic. I believe having a goal will motivate you to achieve it, whether that be to get fitter or run a 5k race.  I have trekked for 10 days in Burma. This was hot humid and difficult sleeping conditions but glorious unspoilt countryside. For this challenge I raised Money through the gym for the Leonard Cheshire home, Green Hill House in Timsbury. Most recently I have climbed Mount Toubkal for the “Get Busy Living” campaign for he Matt Hampson Foundation for injured sports men and Women. Most recently I Trekked 100 miles in the Sahara and some of our gym members came too.

The Gym is set in beautiful countryside and is peaceful, quiet and private. This gym is designed for all those who would like to train in idyllic surroundings in a personal and unique training space with free parking and no traffic queues into and out of Bath!

Balance The Countryside Gym is all about combining healthy living with personal training, coaching and mentoring. Conventional gyms can sometimes feel impersonal and can be busy with loud music and an emphasis on youth.

Everyone can get fitter and improve their quality of life whatever their age, size, shape or fitness level.

If you want a quieter and peaceful place to work out and get fit then Balance The Countryside Gym could be the perfect option for you with its mature environment and functional approach to training.

Sue is fantastic – she’s such an inspiration.
