“I started in October 2015 and have been with Dale as my PT since early 2016. I haven’t looked back since and have often thought why I didn’t I start all of this years before as the benefits and the way I feel about myself since starting have been tremendous. Before starting I was getting steadily heavier and heavier. I lied to myself that I could control my weight if I wanted too and imagined I was lighter than I really was. I just put it down to getting older and taking no exercise. Buying clothes in a larger size every time was just of those things. It seemed like a big awakening when I finally took a real look at myself in the mirror one day and took notice of how breathless I was just climbing a few flights of stairs. Starting off was a real surprise! I thought I’d get loads of put-downs and feel even worse about myself but the reverse was true! I got loads of encouragement with plans set up for regular exercise and improved diet. Even my humble attempts at the beginning were met with positive responses. My diet habits were looked into and I felt personally motivated to change things around. So, today, after a year I’ve lost loads of weight and my fitness levels have improved beyond anything I could have thought possible and I look and feel so much better about myself. I’ll be honest and say it hasn’t been a straightforward journey. There have been hurdles such as xmas, full-board holidays and other events. Life I suppose! My feelings are though that it’s all under control, even the step backs get turned around. The way I feel about myself now both mentally and physically has given me a real can-do attitude. I know I couldn’t have done this without Dale. He’s given me so much advice and encouragement, for exercise and diet, over the months and is really knowledgeable and professional. I do weekly gym sessions with Dale plus weekly indoor and outdoor fit camp sessions as well. Dale is always positive and upbeat and I feel motivated by him to continue and I’m really glad to have him as my PT. I’ve quite a way to go yet to reach my personal target that we’ve discussed and with Dale I know I’ll get there thank goodness. Loving it all !!!”.
“All my life I’ve been quite slim but after being in a relationship for 2 1/2 years i got comfy and the weight piled on, one day I looked in the mirror and new something had to be done! I was already a rep for juice plus so I started on the weight loss program and started PT and was also going to the gym 3 times a week and can honestly say it’s the best decision I’ve ever made! I’ve gone from a size 12 to a size 6-8 and I’ve now gained so much more confidence. I’ve always hated my ‘chubby’ legs, but now they definitely have muscle definition. I now couldn’t be happier with my body.”
“I decided I needed to get back into a bit of shape and loose some weight. I had become a bit sluggish and podgy! I called Dale who couldn’t be more helpful in getting me in for a FREE consultation. This was the first step. A quick questionnaire about my lifestyle and habits to get an idea of what I was after and how Dale and his team could get me to achieve my goals. Dale has been working twice a week with myself since March. We clicked straight away, very easy to get along with. Dale very quickly understood my limits and knows exactly how and when to push me to get the most out the sessions. I’m now loosing weight and over 10% body fat gone & have much more energy. I was definitely daunted by the gym environment before calling Dale, however Dale and his team made the process easy. The sessions are tough, very tough at times, but having someone there to push you just that little bit further really does help. I have learnt a lot, from technique in the gym, again to get the best results to learning about diet. Dale is always on hand to text a question to. Thanks to Dale for the progress – long may it continue!”.
“I started training with Dale in January 2016. In that time I’ve discovered strength I never knew I had, cut my body fat by 14% and lost around 2 stone in weight. Whilst I allow myself little treats, I have completely changed my eating habits and as a result noticed a massive increase in energy levels and my skin (so not just weight or body related improvements!) has never been in better condition. As we go into 2017, I am looking forward to finding out what else I can achieve with Dale!”.
“Looking back I thought I looked OK, being honest I would say I was overweight and I felt fairly fit but no where near as fit as I am today after eating sensibly and exercising. I now know I look good and feel fit enough to face anything and not to let anything stand in my way. Determination and hard work has made me physically and mentally stronger and a more confident person”.
“I had always been fairly sedentary, unhappy with my level of fitness and how I looked and with no idea where I was going on life. Running more than 100 metres would give me an asthma attack, clothes never fit properly, I struggled with low confidence and anxiety and generally felt crap about myself. Starting PT opened a whole world of possibilities, where everything you do – with the support and guidance of someone who knows what they’re doing – improves your quality of life. It literally has turned my life around and I want to be able to share that with others who are in the same place that I was in just under a year ago; if I can help even one person feel like they can take control of their life and make lasting improvements and changes, it would be a massive honour to be part of that process”.
“I have had pt sessions with Dale now for about 9 months! I wish I’d have done this year’s ago. I have lost quite a lot of weight and my fitness levels have increased greatly. My confidence in myself has also grown, something I never thought could happened from coming to a gym and having PT sessions. I thoroughly enjoy my sessions with Dale. I never thought id day this but I really enjoy my time at the gym. I think this is down to having a good PT. If at any time I need advice maybe about nutrition Dale is always happy to give advice. I would certainly without a doubt recommend him as a PT”.
“I spent years trying every fad diet but only gained weight, I was very depressed and hated the way I looked. I was fed up of buying bigger and bigger clothes, After a very embarrassing incident trying to lock my harness on a rollercoaster I realised I needed help. I have been having PT sessions will Dale for 12 months now and it’s the best thing I have done. I have lost nearly 5 stone, I am fitter and healthier than I have ever been. I have gone from getting out of breath walking up a flight of stairs to be able to run 8 miles and have registered for a half marathon next year. Dale is a very positive person he never makes me feel bad if I fall off the food wagon or struggle with an exercise he is always encouraging. His workouts are never boring and are full of variety. I know I would have given up when it got tough a long time ago but Dale always pushes me on and to go further. He is very knowledgeable and full of great advice and tips. He is also a great guy. I cannot recommend him enough. If you are reading this thinking I won’t be able to do it, if I can anyone can and Dale will be there every step of the way. I can honestly say he has changed my life”.
“Had been doing the gym for a while but unsure what I was doing, not seeing results and started to feel unmotivated so my daughter decided to look for a personal training. Best thing we’ve done is getting in touch with Dale. Only been with Dale about a month but already lost weight and inches, feeling stronger and more toned and best thing is I’ve got my motivation back. So if you need someone to motivate and push you I would highly recommend Dale. Really looking forward to my next session that I know will be hard but will be well worth it“.
“I’ve been going to the gym for a while but haven’t really been seeing results and started to feel unmotivated by what to do, so me and mum decided to get in touch with Dale, we’ve only been with him a month but I’m starting to see changes already, I can feel myself getting stronger, my squats have improved and my clothes are fitting better already! Even better that we really enjoy the training sessions, I feel so much more motivated now, I definitely recommend Dale, he definitely knows what he’s talking about and pushes you further than you thought you could go! I look forward to keep training with Dale to get fitter and shift this body fat! I’m so glad I started, no looking back now!“.
“Since turning 30 I noticed I was not only gaining weight but the cellulite on my legs and thighs had become very noticeable. When I was in Jamaica this summer I saw a video of myself walking around the pool and was horrified at how bad it was. I looked around at other ladies older than myself and their cellulite was half as bad as my own. I knew my diet was poor but as I have never been overweight I thought I could get away with consistently eating junk food. This was my wake up call, I realised no amount of starving myself and following ridiculous faddy diets was going to work. Dale was recommend by a friend so I took the opportunity to do things correctly. I’ve now been with dale for 8 weeks training just two sessions per week combined with a healthy clean diet.. I can’t believe that in such a short amount of time I’ve not only lost weight but my cellulite has massively reduced and my whole body shape has changed. I think for the first time in years I’m starting to feel so much better about myself and would highly recommend Dale to anyone. Dale is very knowledgeable and very easy to approach.. I wouldn’t go with anyone else 10/10”.
