Our Story

Ian Potter founded My Fitness in 2014. Having spent over 18 years in the industry he has previously developed a successful personal training business and a large private health club and a gym and Spa facility.

In 2014 Ian decided to create a new venture to develop his passion for the industry and people.

Ian said “I saw an opportunity to create a great training environment for people from all walks of life. An environment whereby we would care for our clients and understand their requirements. We would make sure our gym was well equipped, spacious, bright and easily accessible. Our staff would be educated, caring and motivated by helping people achieve great things. We would ensure that our prices were affordable and offer great value. Finally we would get to know you by name and face not just another number on our financial budget. I needed to make it happen!

“That vision is now a reality and we have created a gym environment that is second to none in Guernsey”.

The My Fitness ethos is straightforward and can be broken down as follows:


Get people to use their body and explore its capabilities through a variety of training methods.


Eat as close to natural as you can manage but allow yourself to enjoy food and drink too. Happiness is very powerful.


Quality sleep and adequate rest is vital. Take it when you can and create a sleep environment that calms you and relaxes you.


Recognise and reduce it. It comes from many angles so be aware that small changes can help the overall goal of low stress. Smile and laugh more. Life should be fun.

I hope this gives you an idea of what My Fitness is about and why I set it up. I look forward to welcoming you in the future.
