Meet Colin Jackson, Owner/Operator, BPM Fitness

I am passionate about health and well-being, and believe that the expression of human movement is a powerful tool for healing. Fitness is a means of moving oneself to challenge the body, mind, soul, and emotions. I started my own journey into health and fitness at a young age to help cope with the stresses of going through adolescence, being bullied in school, having low self-esteem and negative body image/dismorphia. I have been fascinated with human movement ever since.  Throughout my healing journey, I've played with several modalities of movement (CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting, Powerlifting, Yoga, Martial Arts)- I have found that having an authentic love relationship with myself and my body- detached from outcomes or goals- has been the single most effective way to find healing! Now, instead of using fitness as a means to an end, I use and inspire people to have fitness as the end- in and of itself. Come and try one of our classes, and see how you too can heal and grow! We are in this together. Together, we are better and stronger.

Meet Eddy Phimphrachanh, Founder, BPM Fitness

The story of my health transformation begins in my mid twenties. I was a young entrepreneur dealing with the stress and excitement of two thriving businesses, a restaurant and a nightclub. The restaurant and club industry led me to a lifestyle that involved late nights, poor food choices and frequent alcohol consumption. In the beginning I had no trouble keeping up with this lifestyle because I was young and had a great amount of resiliency. As the years passed, I began to see the effects of my late nights, and my food and activity choices. I lost control over my cravings, and I began to see a shift in my energy levels. I had low energy, low libido and a low immunity to illness. I had acne, allergies and frequent sinus and respiratory health issues. I had chronic piriformis syndrome for 2 years. I was taking various, strong medications for these ailments including Accutane, Advil, and antibiotics. These medications combined with chronically high cortisol levels caused leaky gut syndrome, which led to food sensitivities, allergies, and a low immune system. These ailments, along with a significant weight gain over time, motivated me to make some changes.

I started by hiring a personal trainer, which has been one of the best decisions I have made to date. I started to understand my body and how it works. I also learned that, although exercise is a crucial element of well being, I was missing a significant factor in the complete picture of health – proper nutrition. I began doing my own research about nutrition and I soon found myself enthralled with a new world of wellness. 

I made critical changes to my diet, and after some months of experimenting with different dietary plans, I found the key to my success. 

Using fitness and nutrition I am able to control my acne, allergies and respiratory issues, and I find it easy to maintain a healthy weight and muscle mass. After experiencing these incredible results I wanted to share my findings with my friends, family and others. I realized that the key to my success was the combination of understanding the proper diet for my body, a positive mindset, and consistent exercise. 

This is when I started learning from the best teachers at the best institutes and decided to open my own training facility in order to offer London just that – a place where the complete picture of your health is analyzed and both dietary and exercise needs are met by professionals in the field.
