Ollie Martin, founder and director, has an extensive and exciting background in the police force and the wider public sector. Off the back of a series of events at home, work and in health he wanted to reignite the fire in his belly that existed before careers, before children and before life’s reasonability’s had taken over.
He has manifested the tools, experiences and lessons he has learned in his own journey of self-discovery into creating Get Curious.
Now he thrives on encouraging men to take their own journeys of curiosity towards a life that delivers more for themselves and those around them.

Throughout his childhood and early adult life Joss suffered severely with OCD, Pure O, Agoraphobia, Derealisation and Depersonalisation. He had been down every path of therapy and medication that he had been offered, doing hours of research and making very little progress. Not only was this hugely expensive but it also only gave him the ability to manage his struggles in the very short term. He knew there had to be a way out of the torturous existence he was living on a daily basis. Having hit rock bottom, he found Charles Linden and his story.
He has now been fully recovered for four years and has done more than he ever thought possible; travelled, a home with his beautiful girlfriend, and bringing his first child into the world. All of this he previously thought he was not be deserving of. Now he is passionate about moving forward whilst showing and inspiring everyone who is currently suffering, that they can and will recover.
Joss has been a member of Get Curious for 12 months and now a fully accredited and licenced Anxiety Recovery Coach.

He has great empathy and an appreciation for life, practicing gratitude daily so he stays present and fully appreciative of all the greatness there is in his life. That at times is not easy as Jason deals with his own challenges, but he shares this with the men and it is clear we can all learn from him.

Hi! I am Jamie, the Owner and Head Coach of Bath Kettlebell Training. I want to share a quick story with you.
Eight years ago I was 18st, a smoker and a heavy drinker. My nutrition was awful. I could eat a large Domino Meat Feast Pizza, Chicken Strippers and large bottle of coke to myself. Most of my food was fried, takeaways, crisps you name it. I had it!!
I would go to the gym and try to lose weight, do a few reps of this n that, then walk out, not really achieving anything. Never lost weight. How many times did I say to myself ‘start again on Monday’!!!
Then one day I had finally had enough, I took the plunge and joined Bath Kettlebell Bootcamp. I lost 14.3lbs in 4 weeks!!! It was amazing. Finally I had found something that worked for me. Each month I would sign up and see better results time after time.
This inspired me to become a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor, specialising in Kettlebell Training and Indoor Cycling.
Jamie has been an active memeber of Get Curious for 12 months and now provides online cooking shows and workouts!
