Last week, we heard fromGeorge Rose.This week, we’re featuring Rory Knight.
A born-and-bred Londoner, Rory Knight travels the world for both work and adventure but always finds himself gravitating back to his home city. As a group fitness instructor at Equinox’s London locations, he teaches Tread & Shred, Precision Running, and cycling classes. A runner himself, he focuses on 5K, 10K, and 1-mile races. Knight’s training style is focused especially on mindset, and he prides himself on his “ability to connect with people and enable them to unlock their athletic potential” by combatting a lack of self-belief. “I instill people with the confidence, belief, and the positive mindset that they need to reach and achieve their goals,” he says.
