Gary has been my Personal Trainer for the past 5 years. I had a knee replacement and needed to get back to fitness and lose some weight as I had only been able to cycle because of the knee and was very unfit. I am happy to say that with Gary's help I have lost weight and am doing things in terms of fitness that I never thought possible!
I am stronger, and fitter than anyone I know of my age (66) it's astonishing what goals Gary gets me to accomplish with humour and encouragement, even though I sometimes tell him I hate him!!! Our sessions are hard work, but fun. I no longer have to do 'seniors' classes at the gym, can happily join 'high energy' and spin classes and regularly power walk 5k. Uphill!
As Gary says,"Personal Training is all about being the best you can be at the age you are, no matter what that age is, whether you're 18 or 80."
I was a bit unsure of whether I should sign up for a course of personal training, not because I didn’t need it, but because I didn’t think that I would be any good at it and I felt that at almost 50, all hope was lost anyway! Oh yes, and because I find exercise boring.
But now 2 months in and I’m very glad that I did, as I now feel much fitter, have lost weight, and have become very conscious of what I’m eating throughout the week! Having a personal trainer makes exercise much easier than training alone, in fact, I find l push myself far harder with a trainer standing next to me than I ever would alone, especially as they do all the boring bits for you like the thinking, counting, motivating etc, oh, and it’s never boring! (In fact, dare I say it, I actually look forward to my weekly P.T sessions with Gary, as he keeps me motivated and is always very professional).

My sons and I have benefited greatly, health and fitness wise, from our sessions with Gary which we have greatly enjoyed despite the pain! Only joking. Gary has trained the 4 of us in Group Circuit Training Sessions since January 2011 and we have all experienced great strength and cardiovascular improvements and shape change.
I have no hesitation in recommending Gary who has so well structured our training to suit our different ages and fitness levels.
