How it all began...

Caversham Health Club by iST Fitness was created by Isaac Smith Tibby and Sophie Melton.

It all started when Isaac set up his personal training business back in 2012. Fast forward a few years, he met Sophie who at the time was running her own pilates and fitness business. Together they joined forces and set up their first fitness studio in Caversham offering bespoke personal training, group training, fitness & pilates classes whilst creating a fun uplifting fitness community.

Their goal was always to expand and build on their already thriving fitness business and offer more services from a larger facility that they could design from scratch and create the perfect environment for their members. When the opportunity arose to take over the former Caversham Centre building, they knew it was a big task considering the state it was in, alongside the fact that we were in the middle of a global pandemic but they pushed through and spent a year designing and developing what is now Caversham Health Club.

"Incredibly friendly"

"Issac & Sophie (and the whole team) have completely turned me around and now I actually enjoy going to the gym. It's been 3 months or so and I'm still going strong. This is not an intimidating place. People of all levels and goals are here and everyone is incredibly friendly."

"The classes are excellent"

"A fantastic new boutique gym with great equipment. Nice central Caversham location next to Waitrose and good private parking making it easy to access. Staff are really friendly, and the classes are excellent, especially the box club which was a great introduction to boxing for fitness with an experienced instructor."

"A hidden gem"

"A hidden gem - worth a look round to see what you're missing out on! Check out the technogym equipment you can connect to your phone, a spinning studio with stats displayed on the screen, excellent boxing gear, free tea/coffee and snacks. Plus, it is a local business!"
