In February 2016, Nick Robinson broadcast live from our JBPT Ultrabox class to millions of listeners of the Radio 4 Today Programme. Nick was a great sport and even joined in with the class, partnering with one of our class regulars, GP Sian Edwards, who was interviewed live along with Shona. Check out Nick's blog article on the BBC website discussing his visit, which was also featured in the Swindon Advertiser.
Shona visited BBC Wiltshire in July to talk to Simeon Courtie to discuss the #thisgirlcan campaign and its goal to encourage more woman to excercise regularly. If you missed it, check out the interview below!
Shona and Jules popped in to the BBC studios in Swindon yesterday to talk to Radio 2's Alex Lester about lack of adherence to NHS guidelines on regular exercise, especially amongst women. If you missed it, check out the interview below!

The July 2012 edition of Wiltshire magazine featured an article by JB Personal Training's Julie Boyle with advice to improve the wellbeing of the county's office workers. Entitled "9 to 5 Office Shake-up", the published article offers practical tips to integrate into your daily office routine.
"Julie Boyle is 42 going on 24 and runs JB Personal Training. She helps people become fitter, enhance their wellbeing, lose weight or improve their sports performance. She was previously a fitness adviser for Swindon’s RWE NPower and has a background in sports therapy. She is also a qualified rugby coach and has worked with Swindon’s Supermarine RFC. In the town, Julie is known for her early morning boot camps – where participants undertake a 14-week programme of fitness before going to work. She can often been seen leading exercise classes in the open air at Lydiard Park.
She was brought up in Wiltshire, attending Wootton Bassett School but moved around as her father was in the RAF. She now lives just outside Swindon with her civil partner, Shona, herself a fitness trainer and former international rugby player.
