Meet the manager

My name is Jake and I have been the Store Manager of Up and Running Birmingham since 2019. I am originally from Cape Town, South Africa but I have been living in the UK with my family since 2015. 

I come from a personal training background specialising in sports nutrition and exercise sciences. Sport has always been a big part of my life, and even as a young boy I took part in athletics (5000m), competitive swimming and cricket. In my spare time I enjoy weightlifting, running, swimming, surfing, fishing and any adventure sport. I currently run between 5-10km a week and my favourite shoe is the Hoka Elevon for longer runs on the road and the Hoka Challenger for trails. Sport has taught me self-discipline and to never give up on my life goals. I believe exercise and sport are the best remedies for both mental and physical health.
