A former professional rugby league player for Castleford, Wakefield and Hull Kingston Rovers has opened a one-to-one personal training and wellbeing studio for people living or working in Leeds city centre.

Jon Wray, who holds a masters in exercise science from Leeds Metropolitan University and was a part-time lecturer on its sports science and health-related fitness degree, has more than 20 years’ experience as a health, fitness and conditioning professional.

Called Jon Wray Health, Fitness and Wellbeing, the studio is at 12 Park Place.

One-to-one sessions mean only the trainer and client are in the studio, making them entirely private and compliant with the latest exercise-related public health guidelines.

Wray, who played in the 1992 Challenge Cup Final for Castleford against Wigan, said: “Everything we do at Jon Wray Health, Fitness and Wellbeing is based on understanding the wants and needs of individuals.

“We work across a broad spectrum of people ranging from individuals who want to lose weight and feel more energised to elite athletes looking to further enhance their performance.

“The one thing that unites all our clients is the way we individually assess them in terms of resting measurements such as blood pressure, heart rate, body fat and blood levels, physical tests and analysis of eating habits.

“We then set specific goals and agree an individual plan to suit that person.

“This activity is supported by our physiotherapy and sports massage offer to further help our clients achieve their objectives.”
