Frustrated with fads, quick fix mindset, unsustainable training (think twice a day or 7 days a week) and yoyo dieting trend. The lack of support that gyms and health clubs have to offer throughout the world, which often only focuses on how you look but not how you feel and function, founders of Imani Tribe, Mel & Ronnie bring together a permanent and gimmick free approach that helps to end the cycle of unsustainable yoyo dieting trend and discover new way of living.
We believe that a healthy outside starts from inside and our bodies are a reflection of not only what we physically consume but also what we feed our minds.
Therefore if you don't like your body, then you need to change both your eating habits and your MENTAL habits for a successful and long term body transformation.
There is simply no way around it because if you try to change your diet/ nutrition without changing your mindset you will only achieve temporary results. You must train your mind to believe that your body can become whatever you want it to be.
Train your mind to eat like the fit, CONFIDENT, lean person you want to look like.
Train your mind that you are eating according to your highest values/ you are a person of integrity and of your word, therefore you will not eat foods that disrespect your health and abuse your metabolism.
In order to begin the process of changing your body, you must begin to utilise the power of your mind. As you do this, it will be much easier what you control what you put in your body and to have a good relationship with food. We help women and men to build CONFIDENCE with a strong fit and sexy body and empower them to keep their results forever.
We work with women and men who have tried quick fixes in the past and failed (lost weight and put it back on plus more, not changed their body shape or rebounded) and offer real life long term solutions to their lack of discipline, confidence and mindset problems when they are ready to be accountable to their fat loss goals.
We are more than a gym because we work very closely with you to identify where you have gone wrong in the past, your sabotaging habits that keep holding you back and focus on where you have got it wrong in the past and provide real solutions to achieving a permanent body and mind transformation. Pills, fad diets, shakes, not eating, weight watchers, training more and eating less, meal plans, 28 day challenges and 12 week challenges do not provide real life solutions to the habits that are holding you back.
We focus on how you look, feel and function whilst empowering you change your habits, mindset and CONFIDENCE.
We educate you on understanding motivation and how to develop in discipline in your life.
We hold you accountable and provide you structure to stay committed long term.
When you are ready, we provide accountability and empowerment to change your habits and create discipline, CONFIDENCE and focus on your life to achieve the sexy, confident and fit body that you crave. Our programs are developed where we can help you at any point in your journey and where ever you live in the world.

What the people are saying about Imani Fitness!
"Ronnie and Mel have built something very special at Imani. They have created a space which generates a genuine sense of community amongst members. It makes rolling out of bed bright and early to go to the gym much more appealing when you know you’ll be walking into a room full of smiling faces and shared agendas.
Their metabolic programmes are grounded in scientific method and research, something which of itself is incredibly valuable and unusual in a world full of health and fitness gimmicks. They encourage building consistency over the long term, while celebrating the small achievements along the way.
However, the true gold is found with Ronnie and Mel themselves. Not only are they lovely people, their combined experience and knowledge is outstanding. They are measured and methodical in their approach to technique, and my husband and I have improved in both our body shape and our general levels of fitness in a relatively short period of time.
They show a great duty of care to their clients, always going above and beyond our expectations. Their workouts are fun and challenging, utilising playful strategies which not only distract you into exercising, but push you beyond your perceived limits.
This is not your average gym. You will be pleasantly surprised."
"Trainers Ronnie and Mel are passionate about changing lives and genuinely care about their clients. I've learnt so much from them in the few months that I have been a part of the 'tribe' and I can't wait to learn more! They're professional and at the same time super friendly and approachable. In joining Imani, you'll be made to feel like you're a part of a big family who are all there for the same reason - to get fit, healthy, and strong! I intend to train with Imani for years to come!"
"Absolutely love being a part of Imani!! From the minute I made contact I’ve been welcomed and guided by not only Ronnie and Mel but the whole crew!
Well educated trainers who live by and reflect exactly what they teach.
Love the fact that not only are they focused on training and fitness but also teach self love, no matter where you are at in your journey.
My experience so far is 10/10! Can’t wait to take on a Transformation in the future!
Thanks for everything so far Ronnie and Mel!"
"Imani has become so much more than just a gym for me. It's my 2nd home, where I go to relax and unwind, my safe space free of fear & judgement, and my happy place where I can laugh and just be me. Where friends and family are made, new healthy habits formed and dream bodies created. Imani has helped me realise what's really important to me in life and is now teaching and enabling me to live it to the fullest, on my terms."
"There comes a point in life when you want to be a better person in life, love and health. When I 1st contacted #IMANI on 12th December 2016, I wanted to change my life. I was looking for something special...not just your regular PTs and gyms.
I walked into the studio at IMANI for a 45 minute consult that ended up turning into nearly 2 hours. WOW!!! I was blown away! These people were promising me everything I had dreamed of....I had heard all of this before from other gyms and PTs BUT the difference was that Mel and Ronnie were special. They have created a safe place, where there is no judgement. They are special because they actually care, you are not just another number, you are apart of a family. They believe in you, even when you don't believe in yourself! They want you to succeed, not just in fitness, but in health and mind too. #IMANI has seriously changed my life. I look at myself differently. I know that there is a bigger plan than I think I have for myself....There is a MUCH BIGGER plan! #IMANI are teaching me things I never knew about and I have done things that I never thought I could do. #IMANI is where #CONFIDENCE is built and #DREAMS are made. It's never too late to find your #IMANI"

"I love the community, support & love that Imani gives! You are constantly learning, growing & developing with every workout & activity. You get challenged and pushed out of your comfort zone, which results in positive growth. Imani teaches you how to live life to its fullest, which is one of the reasons why I love going here!
I have nothing but respect and admiration for the trainers of Imani, Mel & Ronnie. They go above and beyond to create a safe, fun and encouraging environment for everybody.
I wouldn't look any further for health & fitness needs. Imani are simply the best!"
"My life has changed since I've joined Imani. Mel and Ronnie not only focus on your body transformation and improving your fitness but more importantly for me, their approach to training is wholistic. They genuinely take time to get to know you, and the support I get from them as trainers and now friends is priceless.
I have gained so much confidence and self worth since starting training with them.
And the people who trains at Imani are all amazing and so supportive. They will motivate and push you and will become your life long friends. I feel truely blessed to have found my tribe!"
-Davis Kim Lim
"Are you ready to change? Are you wanting to grow and face your fears? Do you really want to see what you are made of and what you can achieve? Look no further - Imani is your tribe. Personal training that is truly tailored to you so that you can reach your goals in an environment free of judgement and full of support! Yay Imani!"
"Safe environment, beautiful souls, encouraging you to be the best version of yourself as you see it- no one else. I will be with IMani for a long time to come."
"I'm fairly new to IMANI and I have found the experience thus far to be wonderful. The IMANI Tribe are inclusive, welcoming and encouraging. The trainers Mel Cook and Ronnie Oliech genuinely care for their clients and want them to be the best version of themselves possible. Thus the workouts are tailored to suit the individual and their support is next to none ... Mind, body and soul. Having had a bad 'gym' experience in the 80's I was of the adamant belief that all gyms were full of steroid pumped bullies. My involvement with IMANI has completely shattered that misconception and I now look forward to my gym sessions. If you want to see results and feel great I highly recommend IMANI !!"
"Great coaches that genuinely teach others correct methods not based on quick fixes, fads or diets."
"Although I am not an IMANI FITNESS participant, I find their posts absolutely motivating, that I feel like I'm part of their tribe!
I met Mel Cook last year through hip hop classes and this lady lives what she gives out! She has a heart of gold and has personally given me time and the use of her studio to help me practice my dance routines, something that she didn't have to do! I have never met a couple who inspire, guide and motivate each other through the love for themselves, their fitness and their way of life! I can only imagine what it would be like to be part of IMANI Fitness, they are definitely leaders who inspire and will ignite a fire in you through their knowledge and their way of living through their infectious nature.
With Mel and Ronnie, I truly know that you will be in great hands!"
"Amazing area with fantastic trainers! Couldn't recommend a better place that will focus on individual training, transformations and group fitness. I have found my Imani!"
"Excellent facility, hidden gem in the heart of Croydon. Coaching of the highest quality."
"Fantastic facilities and amazing vibe. Such friendly, happy people to train with and Ronnie and Mel are experts in their field. I wouldn't train anywhere else."
"'Imani' means 'faith' and that is what both Mel and Ronnie put into anyone who walks through their open door. They both automatically believe in those who have had the faith to believe in themselves and reach out for guidance. Love my sessions at Imani."
