Client Success Stories

Ian L, 71, a retired orthopaedic surgeon from Bristol.

I had retired from my job and wanted to stay physically active. I had been sporty while growing up in Australia, including rowing in the University Eight for the Oxford Cambridge Cup

We met and had a rapport. He really listened to what I wanted to achieve and where my interests lay. He created a programme which was tailored to my needs and around activities I enjoyed.

My fitness has improved, rather than deteriorated, with age and I plan to carry on as long as possible as I am well aware, through my observation of patients over many years, of the benefits of exercise in maintaining health and mobility.

Jacky F, 41, a software consultant, Redfield, Bristol.

I used to run and do body pump four to five times a week. Then one day, when I was helping somebody to move a cooker, I felt a ripping sensation. I was left unable to get out of bed or work for over a week. I was put on heavy pain killers.

By the time I first saw Chris, I couldn’t do one press up or touch my toes. I was lucky to meet someone as expert as Chris to help get me back into shape safely.

I went from not being able to do any exercise, to getting back to the level of fitness I had before my injury. In fact, I am stronger now in many ways than I was before.

I would recommend him not only for his recovery-based training, but as a personal trainer in general.


Steve, 59, a WPA healthcare partner from Warmley, Bristol

I had been sporty and played cricket professionally for several years in the UK, Australia and South Africa. But I ended up suffering various injuries through years of exertion.

The pain got worse over time and doctors advised me I would need a new knee but I should wait for as long as possible. I’ve since had four operations and a knee replacement.

He helped me to get fit while preventing further damage to my knee. The exercise prior to the operation also eased the pain.

Chris is very thorough in his approach to personal training. He presents the information well and I’m confident he is the right person to train me.

More Client Successes

"I chose to do Personal Training with Chris as part of my preparation for the World Age Group Triathlon Championships, Olympic Distance, held in Australia (where I came 7th). My biggest benefit was a definite improvement in very specific areas of my cycling and running strength and power where I was able to slash 13 minutes off my personal best and win the British Triathlon Championship. I would add that I found Chris pleasant and calm to work with, he has the ability of making his client work hard without any element of bullying or unnecessary pressure and he spent quite a bit of his own time researching the finer points of cycling technique and specific training practice that suited me best. "

Jane L
Easter Compton

"My main leisure activity is racing a sailing dinghy and my reason for choosing personal training was to improve my fitness in order to improve my sailing ability. Chris constantly encourages me to push myself further and this has resulted in significant improvement to my strength, fitness and sailing, I feel much healthier, more alert and I feel that I have really progressed in that short time"

Bob C
Easter Compton

"I had been a member of a gym for many years and lived a relatively health lifestyle but no matter what I did I couldn’t lose weight. When I met Chris I weighted 234lb’s I told him my dilemma, straight away he knew what to do, after 3 months with Chris I had achieved something I didn’t think was possible, I had lost 28lbs that’s 2 stone of fat gone! This is the lightest I have weighed in 20 years, thank you Chris."

Indy A
Stoke Bishop

"I wanted to lose weight, feel more confident about my body and learn more about how exercise can help me do this, when I started I want to lose a stone and a half in my first 12 weeks and now those 12 weeks have finished I have lost 2 stone which far exceeded my expectation and I feel much better, fitter and am really enjoying the sessions. Chris helped me achieve this designing a program specifically for me that sets new challenges for me all the time, he has also encouraged me to eat well and gave me great advice about what to eat. I love the training sessions and would strongly recommend Chris to anyone wanting to lose weight or improve their fitness."

Joanna H

"I wanted to run the Bristol 10k in 50 minutes and asked Chris for help, he was able to write a training plan specific to me that was able to my running speed and technique. With this training plan combined with weekly 1 to 1 sessions my motivation always remained high, resulting in me completing the 10k in 48 minutes faster than I originally planned"

Jane C

"I have a hip labral tear and I was told I needed to keep my hip strong. I am restricted in the movements I can do and therefore the exercises I can do. Chris has been able to identify the exercises and stretches that are best for me to keep my hip healthy"

Monika M
Westbury Park

"I started training with Chris in 2016 to keep up my fitness as I get older. The training is varied and challenges my cardio fitness, strength & stability. If I ever turn up to a session with a hip ache or shoulder pain he knows how to sort those as well so I leave feeling better than I arrived."

Why is this the best Personal Training for you?

You'll do the right exercises

Exercises like sit-ups and crunches can contribute to injuries, aches and pains. You'll do better ones that get you fitter and stronger.

You'll have better exercise technique

Whether it's lifting with the hips or packing your shoulder, better exercise technique helps your muscles work properly.

You'll improve your flexibility

If your joints are tight your body is saying there's a problem. When your joints move freely your muscles work better.

You'll build core strength & stability

Everything starts with core strength & stability. When this is better, everything is stronger and more stable.

I’ve worked with many different clients, of all ages from 8yrs old up to 75yrs old, retired professional sports people to people that don’t like gyms but know they need regular exercise.

This is the reason for a personal trainer, I’m here to take you from the fitness you are currently at to the fitness you want. 

I have worked with all age groups from 8yrs old to 75yrs old, my longest serving client is in fact in their 70’s and has been working with me since 2009.

Each session is 60mins long. What you do in the session is decided based on your goals, fitness level and likes and dislikes that we find out in the consultation. Sessions normally start with a warm up, which could be followed by cardio and/or weights and finishes with a cool down.

You can do as many as you wish, most people do 1 session per week, some do 2 session and a few do 3. 

Loose comfortable clothing, trainers, tight leggings, shorts, t-shirt, hoodie or whatever makes you most comfortable.

If you’ve never exercised before there will be an initial phase where your muscle can get sore because they are adapting to the exercise. This will be short lived and should only happen after the first few sessions.
