About Us

Who is Rachel… 

Firstly, welcome to my website, please stay and have a good look around to discover the different Personal Training sessions and Small Group Fitness Classes we have to offer Bedford.

Let me tell you a little about me. I am a Personal Trainer in Bedford and I have worked in the fitness industry since 2000, as a gym instructor, class instructor, in management, sales, marketing and as a personal trainer. I am now Master Trainer with the highest recognition of achievment on REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals).  Take a look at my qualifications here. I began my career as a fitness professional in London where I worked in the city, you now find me in Bedford as the creator and owner of Rachel Benton & Associates at East Wing Fitness Studio. Here I work with other like minded fitness professionals, coaches and therapists to bring you a fitness service that is holistic in approach and progressive in outlook.

Why? Well I have worked as a personal trainer for a long time now and seen many client successes and also worked through many disappointments. I have helped clients lose weight before their weddings, after pregnancy and gain confidence as they see their fitness improve and body shape change. I have helped clients recover from surgery, manage their back pain and go on to lead fulfilled active lives not to mention the runners and triathletes I have helped train for events. With each one of those clients I have aimed to help them understand how to train, eat, sleep and live better healthier more balanced lives and I have seen many of my clients going on to do just that…and more importantly they now have the skills to do that forever. That is why.

The Associates…

The Associates are a changing and growing group of professionals,  personal trainers, therapists and coaches and other professionals who we are mutually happy to refer our clients/patients to. They are each one of them outstanding in their commitment and expertise within their profession, so take some time to meet them now.
