Christian Vila owner operator

Founder and Operator - Brighton Kettlebells

Christian was one of the first Personal trainers to become certified to teach Kettlebells in Brighton & Hove. Having been in the health & fitness industry since 1998, he has a passion for training and helping others achieve their fitness goals. After graduating with a BA (Hons) Sports Science degree, he’s had the best training in the industry possible, leading to a level 3 Personal Training qualification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

Disillusioned by the fitness industry, Christian turned to Kettlebells in 2008 and has trained under the world’s best trainers, including Angie Dowds (Biggest Loser series) , Steve Cotter (IKFF) , Martin Rooney (TFW) and Mike Mahler (Aggressive Strength) to become one of the country’s top Kettlebell trainers.

Christian went on to launch the successful Brighton Kettlebells classes in 2008, which now has several classes a week around Brighton & Hove.

Christian also offers personal training under the CVPT banner around Brighton & Hove.

Online Supremo

Jesse joined the Brighton Kettlebells team in 2019 and can be seen leading the classes outdoors and online.

Jesse is a nutrition coach, personal trainer and biomechanics trainer based in Brighton & Hove. She works from both her home gym and online, working with clients all over the world. She is the Fuel Coach for Her Spirit, an online women’s health app, and a health and fitness writer, regularly contributing for Triathlon 220 magazine and other women’s features.

After many years of trying to manage her health and fitness unsuccessfully, joining gyms, overexercising and under-fuelling my body, she began to educate myself about how to create more of a sustainable, practical and long term approach.
