I’ve been training with Yasmin since 2014 and have loved every minute! Before starting personal training, my fitness had plateaued and I was feeling demotivated with my gym visits; I was focused mainly on cardio based exercise and had limited experience in training with weights. My training has now been completely reinvigorated and I look forward to every gym visit, especially when I have my one-on-one sessions. Yasmin’s passion and knowledge is clearly demonstrated and I have seen my fitness and strength improve dramatically which has been extremely motivating. Training at The Fitting Rooms Personal Training Gym only serves to enhance my sessions as I’m confident you could not get a more friendly, inclusive and welcoming training environment than that at The Fitting Rooms. The gym is also equipped to the highest standard, being of a far superior quality to any other gym I have trained at. I have loved… Read more “The gym is equipped to the highest standard…”
If you’re after a friendly, accessible and results driven gym then The Fitting Rooms is for you. All the staff are so dedicated to what they do, It’s definitely not your average gym. The equipment used is top quality unlike other gyms I have encountered in the past. I can’t recommend it enough – there is nowhere else I would train.
Helped me improve my technique, posture and lifting weight significantly…
I’ve been weight training with Yasmin for just over a year and she’s helped me improve my technique, posture and lifting weight significantly over the time. She structures my sessions so that there’s a decent progression each time, without pushing too hard or too fast, and builds in variety by changing around the programme every few sessions. I don’t know how many other clients Yasmin has, but she always remembers what we were chatting about in the last session. It’s a small thing, but it’s a personal touch I appreciate about her training
Dave has been training me twice a week for 5 years. I am so pleased with the results, my muscle definition & strength has improved tremendously. Dave’s great strength is that he seems to know my body’ capabilities & idiosyncrasies better than I do so I trust him completely with whatever exercise he asks me to do. He has guided me through rehabilitation exercises after I had my anterior cruciate ligament replaced in Oct 2013. Dave has in depth knowledge of sports training anatomy etc. and so explains clearly to me the aims & benefits of each exercise or regime of exercises. I have learnt with Dave that you are never to old to set & achieve new levels of physical fitness & strength.”
I first joined The Fitting Rooms whilst training for the 2016 Boston Bhangra Competition, one of the biggest international Bhangra competitions in America. I was a little bit apprehensive about weight training at first, but after my initial Taster with Yasmin I knew that the well thought out training programmes provided by TFR would be the perfect addition to my training regime – and they really were. I trained 2-3 times a week on the Shared personal training programme in the lead up to my competition and very quickly noticed a significant difference in my strength, tone and stamina. The team at TFR create an extremely friendly and motivating environment to train in and really go the extra mile for all their clients. With the help of the team at TFR, I was able to reach peak condition in time for the competition and our team went on to take… Read more “Quickly noticed a significant difference…”
Working with The Fitting Rooms has allowed me to follow a healthy workout regime whilst performing in eight shows a week. This is something I never thought I’d be interested in, let alone achieve. The space is very welcoming and the location is extremely convenient. It was recommended to me by a friend 3 years ago and I’ve not stopped since. I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been and with my job I’ve been able to maintain a lot of energy when performing on stage. I couldn’t recommend training with The Fitting Rooms enough!
I became one of Steve’s clients in March 2013 and have been training with him three times a week ever since. I previously rowed for Cambridge in the lightweight boat so I have always been able to push myself and had very good aerobic endurance. However, I was looking to increase my strength and build a little muscle but was lost when it came to free weights, which is why I decided to train with a personal trainer. Within the first six months of working with Steve I put on just shy of 10kg whilst keeping my body fat to around 11.5 %. I also more than doubled my strength in the big lifts such as the squat, deadlift and bench-press. Steve always works with me to constantly tweak and vary my training and this ensures that I continue to progress and stay motivated.
I have been doing Shared Personal Training with Steve at The Fitting Rooms for about 2 months now. I am an avid runner, but prior to starting at TFR I had never done any weight training. Now, having done personal training for about 2 months, my only regret is not starting sooner! My programme is focused on Body Composition and core strength, as I wanted something to help me tone up while also strengthening my legs, back and core for those long runs. Within the first few weeks I began to see results in many ways: how I look; increased energy levels and better sleep. My running times also began to improve, even seeing some PBs after over a year of plateaus. I am now able to push myself harder and recover more quickly, and I am looking forward to incorporating work with TFR as part of my training plan… Read more “My only regret is not starting sooner!”
