It's Not Too Late To Be Great!

Hello and welcome to ActiveU. My name is Mick Hurrell and I’m a man on a mission! I’m a 50-something fitness professional dedicated to help my peers in the over-50s generation to get moving to get Fit for Life!

I’m a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, plus an approved Nordic WalkingBoxercise, and PrimeMovers® /PrimeFit instructor.  Based near Warwick, I’m also both a walk and run group leader.

50-somethings have a different mindset, capabilities and potential. I really get that – because I'm like you.

In today's stressful post-Coronavirus times, exercising to boost fitness and mental health is accepted as being an essential part of daily life. More than that though, getting fitter allows us to achieve cherished life goals and ambitions. Look and feel better to enjoy more! 

We all have very personal goals. Yours could be:

  • Lose weight, firm & tone. Revitalise your body! 

  • Reclaim your fitness following a career focus

  • Prepare for the adventure holiday of a lifetime

  • Get fitter to spend more active time with children or grandchildren

  • Get into shape with/for a new partner

  • Tackle an illness or long-term chronic condition

  • Return to cycling, jogging, running, work-outs

  • Realise the ambition to take up a new activity

  • Effective Rehab and Prehab

  • Build your strength, energy and flexibility to keep doing things you love for longer. 

So, tell me:
What's your 'Why'?

Helping You Succeed

There's a bewildering volume of fitness resources online – especially since the COVID-19 restrictions!  However, at our age, unless you know what you're doing you can be ineffective, or even hurt yourself. Besides, what's really the best activity solution for you to meet your goals?


Only you really know that. It's your journey. You know how you feel, what you do and don't like, and what will help you to commit to and stick to changing the way you live and reaping the benefits for years to come!

That's where I can make a dramatic difference for you: 

  • Working together, I'll help you crystallise your goals – to find your "Why?"

  • Whatever your starting point, we'll carefully piece together a fully personalised, progressive programme for you to help you succeed

  • Face-to-face and online, I'll be supporting you all the way, because no-one has an infinite amount of will power, focus and energy! 


Are you ready? We can get started online now!

Join Me For Effective, Fun Fitness Coaching

Do Things You Love! 

As a Personal Trainer and fitness coach, I understand that starting out at the gym, or starting jogging can be daunting for both men and women. We shouldn't let that get in the way of us getting fitter, stronger and healthier.

My philosophy is that we don't need to pump iron, or pound the treadmill staring at a TV screen, wishing it was over! Getting fitter should be both challenging and fun! It should leave us wanting more, not thankful that it's over! Don't you agree?!!


So, lets get creative:

  • Circuits

  • Flows

  • Suspension

  • Aerobics

  • Jogging

  • Boxing

  • Mix it up: with strength, cardio, flexibility and mobility. In 1-2-1, groups and classes!

Training options outdoors and online for all abilities PLUS at your home with ActiveU@Home:

  • 1-2-1 PT sessions from just £22

  • Couples/friends/small group PT sessions from just £10pp


Stimulate, not annihilate!

"Mick’s patient and thoughtful approach has helped me to get back into a fitness routine after some years of training intermittently. I feel fitter, calmer and more enthusiastic about setting myself realistic goals. Mick has been the catalyst for that change!Eddie, Coventry

Why Wait Any Longer?

To be your best – Fit to Live your Best Life – you need to raise your standards in other ways too. So, we'll look at improving nutrition as well as activities. There's an old saying: "You can't out-exercise a bad diet". It's true. Exercise is a stimulus – high quality nutrition, hydration and sleep are what really underpin sustainable change. Say goodbye to fad diets and yo-yoing weight loss!

Prehab, rehab, exercise prescription, getting fit for life. Whatever your starting point we can:

  • Embark on your fitness journey

  • Elevate your current fitness levels

  • Recover the fitness you used to have

Discover The Power Of Nordic Walking

Turbo-Charge Your Walking!

Nordic Walking is a popular outdoor fitness activity and it's easy to see why. Nordic walking – with special, ski-type poles – is a full-body aerobic & strength conditioning exercise. It's easy on the joints and safe for all ages/fitness levels. 

  • It uses up to 46% more energy than walking and uses 90% of your muscles, compared to fewer than 50% when walking and jogging!

  • Walk intensity can be safely varied – from gentle walks for people with health issues, to workout walks, which are a great way to improve fitness, lose weight and tone your whole body.


  • Regular Nordic walking can lower your risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers. It can also be used as part of a weight-loss exercise programme.

  • Wanting to get back to walking after illness/operation/ lockdown? With patented "Activator" poles I can get you moving again, safely and progressively Also highly recommended for Parkinson's sufferers.

Leamington Spa is a great location to explore and enjoy the parks and countryside on the door step. But I also run courses in Warwick, Stratford and Kineton/Wellesbourne too.

Group Class Sessions. Get Social, Get Fitter!


Play Together, Succeed Together!​

Want to get more out of being 50+ and fabulous?! Being an Over-50 gains you exclusive entry to my wide range of ActiveU groups and gives you the opportunity to get active with people like you! 

Attend as many groups as you wish. Designed and delivered with the 50+ generation specifically in mind, you'll find them challenging, safe and fun! Do something. Then try something else. Do more, get better, feel better! 

Working out in a "motivational pack" is an increasingly popular approach to exercise. Workouts with others improve consistency because they involve a commitment.

‘No shows’ and cancellations get noticed by others and positive peer pressure can help curtail the urge to skip a session… or, perish the thought, quit!


Here's an idea for you...why not get together with your friends and family and have your own private group classes with me?

Just Take Your Pick!

Whatever your current level of fitness and whatever your goals, there's a group class for you. Choose your ideal  starting point and work your way up! Do one, do several...mix it up and keep it fun!


I've groups starting regularly. Click on the ones that take your fancy for more details.



  • PrimeMovers® seated group classes
