Emma Reynolds trained as professional dancer after being awarded a full scholarship to attend the renowned Laine Theatre Arts establishment. As a professional performer her career took her from the classical world to musical theatre to the more commercial world of the record industry, working as a performer, choreographer and teacher. Emma established performing arts schools from 1987 and spent the next 9 years building these academies until she opened the first combined health club and performing arts centre in 1996 with husband Jason Hall.
Jason Hall trained as a carpenter and joiner gaining in depth knowledge of the building industry that would prove invaluable in the growth of the Reynolds Group, before changing careers and training as a fitness professional. He worked for a number of years in the leisure industry before opening the first Reynolds health club with wife Emma Reynolds in 1996.
Since these beginnings Reynolds Training has expanded into a national private and government funded training company delivering vocational qualifications in Performing Arts, Fitness, Beauty, Customer Service, Horticulture, chef training and Leadership and management across the UK. As well as delivering private and government funded training to individuals we also deliver the training and development needs of staff within large and small companies large, from re-engagement community projects to leadership and management qualifications at degree level significantly contributing to their corporate social responsibility.
