About Us

Welcome to Motive8

Founded in 1998, motive8 began its life as a specialist personal training company. Today we are a global organisation and established market leaders in the design & installation of residential and corporate health and fitness facilities.

motive8 is privately owned and managed by one of its original founders, Nick Sadler. Sarah Cleland-Smith and Richard Moon, two of the first full-time employees, are now Co-owners and Co-directors, with Omar White joining the Board of Directors in 2016. The directors are supported by a team of experts in their respective fields, from consultancy, design and project management to facility maintenance and management.

We also have a number of personal trainers, many of whom are qualified in rehab and nutrition, as well as a team of beauty professionals, to deliver services in our manned spas or from our training hubs in London & Leeds.

motive8 also has a coaching team dedicated to delivering sports sessions to children in South West London. Managing Director, Nick Sadler, has always been passionate about ensuring children have a positive experience of physical activity from a young age. Nick has maintained his involvement in this area of the business, which now delivers over 200 sessions per month for children aged 5-16 years.
