Huw Lloyd Davies’s fitness-training and life-coaching career took off in no small part due to his personal sense of adventure. Not only has he earned fitness-based credentials from CrossFit and the C.H.E.K. Institute, but he’s also an accredited instructor in sea kayaking, outdoor survival, and adventure-based learning. Stu White has a similar penchant for tackling adventure—he walked to California all the way from New Zealand, blindfolded. His inestimable expertise in human muscles and movement inform an extensive repertoire of physical training, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. Together, Huw and Stu started BodyWorks Lifestyle as a place where they can help others improve their own health and fitness. Alongside an excellent supporting staff, the team curates a curriculum of group training classes, personal-training sessions, nutrition consultations, and holistic life coaching.
The center also offers an online training program, a portal full of videos and written workouts for people who can’t make it to classes because their motorized unicycles are out of gas. The online program includes a weekly telephone chat with one of the gym’s trainers, who speaks to the philosophy of BodyWorks Lifestyle’s inspirational founder.
