Client Testimonials

From someone who was on the verge of becoming a proper couch potato, Mark has managed to get me back to enjoying exercise again. He pushes you, but not to the extent that you feel like giving up. He is supportive and really listens to what your goals are and provides an effective programme that is flexible to fit in with other commitments. With previous trainers and gym memberships, if something got in the way I would just let it and slowly find my attendance and enthusiasm declining but with Mark, I go out of my way to rebook sessions if I cannot make the session planned. He is enthusiastic, welcoming, friendly and really cares. Coupled with that, his sessions, either individual or group are very good value for money. I would not hesitate in recommending him to all age groups and all ability levels. My health, both physical and mental has markedly improved as a result of sessions with Mark.

Go on give it a go, you won’t regret it.

I approached Mark a couple of years ago after completing chemotherapy looking to build up strength and get fit. It has been the best investment I have ever made. From the beginning, he was patient, approachable, reasonable and encouraging. Over the last two years, I have changed beyond recognition thanks to his hard work and dedication. Training with Mark has become one of the most important parts of my week and I cannot thank him enough or recommend him highly enough. A true gentleman and professional – don’t bother looking around – just get on the phone.

Seriously you are fantastic Mark, you never fail to engage with everyone. That is why you are superb at what you do and support each and every one.

Started back with Mark 5 weeks ago already and I am delighted with the results. In this time, I have lost 7lbs in weight and 7 inches overall. Massive thanks to Mark for all your help, support, and motivation.

It’ll have been a full 18 weeks since classes started and they’ve been a brilliant motivation to get up and into my day. I even have some upper body strength now which I’ve never had. Thank you, Mark.

I Will really miss these classes, it has been fantastic. Very tough some days but fantastic all the same. Thank you very much, Mark.

Having been a regular gym user and then moving into lockdown, Marks’ classes have been brilliant for ht daily motivation, energy-boosting and maintaining my fitness levels. Being able to still have a feeling of normality was important for my own wellbeing which has been achieved with the daily routine that Marks’ classes offer, I would recommend them.

My daughter has 1-1 swimming lessons with Mark. Since he has started teaching Livia her swimming has become so much stronger and she is much more confident in the water. Mark takes the time to explain everything carefully and clearly and he’s very patient with her. I also love how the lessons include Important skills such as life-saving skills, paddling to keep afloat and diving into the water. I see how confident a swimmer my child has become and how much she loves to learn to swim – I definitely recommend him.

My son had 1-2-1 swimming lessons with Mark I cannot believe the difference it has made, would thoroughly recommend it, thank you, Mark.

Mark is training me to climb Kilimanjaro on the 1st of October. 16 weeks ago I was a 20 a day smoker never been in a gym had only ever climbed the stairs in my house. I quit smoking have climbed the cobbler, Ben Nevis and mark is getting me fit enough to climb Kilimanjaro. I can’t believe how much stronger and fitter I feel. Thanks, Mark.

I’ve been training with Jodie for about 5 weeks now and she absolutely smashes it every session with her workout plans to suit my goals. Not only have I gained confidence within the gym but I have already started to see results that I didn’t think were possible through Jodie’s help, whether it be keeping me on track with eating healthy or keeping me motivated in the gym even when it is so hard I want to give up. Jodie’s professionalism is excellent but keeps it fun at the same time! Can’t thank her enough.

I’ve been training with Jodie now for 5 weeks and I can’t thank her enough for all the help and guidance she has given me, even just giving me more confidence within myself and going to the gym myself and doing a workout!

Mark is a very fine personal trainer whose methods are varied and interesting. He finds innovative ways to use exercise to ensure that the client achieves maximum benefit. I always look forward to our training sessions and invariably feel the benefit.

Mark is professional, motivating, understanding of my requirements, kept training sessions interesting & challenging and I was very pleased with my results. I couldn’t recommend Mark more highly.

Mark has trained me now for almost 2 years.

I have recently started back after struggling to find time for the gym due to work.  The results I achieved previously, I never thought would be possible. Not only do I feel much fitter but I have found the confidence I never thought I had.

Training with Mark feels more like a hobby than a dreaded workout, I look forward to every single session and can’t wait to see the results this time around.

Not just my PT but a great friend too. Thank you for everything Mark!
