Ryan Cadman 3

Meet The Staff: Ryan Cadman

NAME: Ryan Cadman

AGE:  23

WORK TITLE: Health and Fitness Instructor

WHAT DOES YOUR WORK INVOLVE: Helping people find specific health and fitness goals, then helping them obtain them within the gym environment. Giving people plans that they can follow which are suited to their individual needs and goals.

HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR: Helping and seeing a close friend lose up to 6 stone and getting them much fitter. Also winning my Pro card in Bodybuilding by coming first as a Junior Bodybuilder.

SPECIAL WORK CHALLENGES: Trying to make people see that the gym isn’t that big and scary but how it can be a fun place to be. Also there’s no point in doing a workout in which you don’t enjoy, if you enjoy it you give it 100%.

FUTURE PLANS: To learn more about the fitness industry as it is forever changing, you can never know enough! Branch out my knowledge to more cardio based exercises rather than strength and conditioning.

BEST THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE ARENA: Since I joined the team I was made very welcome and comfortable from the start. People are more than happy to help each other.

Meet The Staff: Mark Peach

NAME: Mark Peach

AGE: 42

JOB: Catering Operations Manager for Bolton Whites in the Arena.

CAREER SO FAR: I was born and brought up in Derby and first went into the catering industry at 16 as a bottle-washer. I progressed to becoming a barman and supervisor then assistant manager. I came to work as deputy manager for The Malthouse Farm pub restaurant in Chorley when it first opened and was there for about five years. Then I  went to work for De Vere’s at the Bolton Whites Hotel for seven years as bar manager, dealing with the hotel and conferencing for about two years which was a very busy lifestyle with hundreds of staff. I wanted to improve my work/life balance (I’m married with a seven year-old son) so moved over to working for Bolton Whites in the Arena just a month or two ago.

WHAT ARE YOUR DUTIES NOW? I look after all the conference and event catering at the Arena and also the Refresh Café.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE ARENA? It’s less corporate and  more family-oriented and I really like all the smaller clubs which are attached to the Arena. There’s a great atmosphere and buzz here and people are very friendly.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGE CURRENTLY? The Refresh Café – we want to get it absolutely right and I’ve been asking lots of customers exactly what they want from it.

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS HERE? I’m looking at several different things including outside catering, taking orders – including made by Twitter – to the various businesses and offices nearby.

WHAT ARE YOUR SPORTING INTERESTS? I like running and I’ve also started using the Arena gym – it’s great that we can do this so easily.

WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS? I’m here for the long-term, and looking forward to all that brings.

Meet The Staff: Gaynor Higson

NAME: Gaynor Higson

AGE:  49

WORK TITLE: Senior Health and Fitness Instructor/Inspire Bolton to Action Mentor

WHAT DOES YOUR WORK INVOLVE: The main aspect of the job involves helping members achieve their goals at the gym, whether this is for fitness, social, fun, health or a combination of these. This is by setting progressive programmes, dealing with general inquiries, taking active one-to-one sessions or just by interacting with them.

BEST THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE ARENA: Being paid to talk to people about fitness and training! What’s not to like – and, of course, all the people I meet.
