I wanted to have PT to push myself in to new ways of training; I wanted to be able to lift heavier with correct technique. My ultimate goal is to change my body shape and at just 3 sessions in, working with Sarah, I am already noticing changes. Sarah is helping me to change my attitude towards training and my overall lifestyle.

I really enjoy training with Tor because she is good at motivating me, she pushes me to work harder and she is positive and encouraging. I have lost 2 stone so far and I’m feeling better about myself.

What’s not to love? Helping others achieve their goals through advice, structure and support makes being a PT the best job imaginable!

Training Background

I have been training for a number of years, starting off as a triathlete in my early 20’s. I switched to bodybuilding due to a back injury which meant running was a no go for a while. I now compete as a bikini athlete and have done for over 5 years. I enjoy all elements of my sport, the commitment and focus needed mean that I am challenged mentally and physically on a daily basis.

What I love about being a PT is supporting people to reach their goals.  I like watching people progress and reach goals they didn't think was possible.

Training Background

After years of training I decided to enrol on a level 2 fitness instructor course which led to me becoming a Level 3 personal trainer.  Completing my training has enabled me to learn the theory and science behind how the body and mind works.  I now use my knowledge to help others break down their mental and physical barriers to help shape the body as well as developing the mind.

name - paul christmas

I trained to become a P.T because I’ve always enjoyed the physical and mental benefits of looking after myself, be that though a better diet or exercise.

Training Background 

I was always being given misleading or contradicting information when starting my own fitness journey, or I found that the information I was given was generic and not focusing on what was best for me. Through my professional training and my own fitness I have evolved in to a trainer that takes a no-nonsense approach, I don’t believe in quick fixes, fad diets or getting people to do over complicated workouts. Everyone is truly unique and that deserves my attention.
