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… Read more “My only regret is not starting sooner!”
I have been training for around 10 years and have always been very comfortable pushing myself to achieve my fitness goals and as a result of this I had never considered using a personal trainer. This all changed when I developed a rotator cuff injury after overtraining. Dave was highly recommended to me, not only as an exceptional personal trainer who achieves fantastic results for his clients, but also for his knowledge of injury management and prevention. Through my training sessions with Dave I have not only overcome my rotator cuff injury but have also got myself into the best… Read more “The best physical shape of my life…”
Super friendly and very effective. I dropped 2 dress sizes in 4 months (I did stop eating carbs at night) and had a great time doing it. The only reason I’m not still going is because I’m moving offices and I just pray I can find somewhere that comes close to TFR. The shared sessions worried me at first as was scared there would be super fit people in the same group and it would be an issue but you’re only training against yourself and it always worked out well. The trainers are all fab. I’ll really miss it there.… Read more “I dropped 2 dress sizes in 4 months…”
The training programmess are always fun and varied…
I have been training with Yasmin for over a year now and I have come to really value her as a PT for many reasons… She is very positive in the way that she trains me, using encouragement, flexibility and patience to get results, without any BS! She has a real passion for her work and this is incredibly motivating. During our sessions Yasmin is totally focussed on my agenda making me feel like I am her only client and I love that she never texts, chats or gets distracted whilst training me. She obviously sees her role as being… Read more “The training programmess are always fun and varied…”
A safe programme to help me cope with the pregnancy…
I had my first session with Yasmin the week I found out I was expecting my first baby. Before then my fitness wasn’t great, especially as my job is quite sedentary. She designed a safe programme to help me cope with the pregnancy and prepare for labour. I worked full time throughout, leaving little time to exercise. Having one-to-one sessions meant I got the most out of an hour’s training, without ever overdoing it. Because of Yasmin’s expertise I was able to work with weights, which I would not have had the knowledge or confidence to do on my own… Read more “A safe programme to help me cope with the pregnancy…”
Put simply, I’m that person who loathed any form of physical exercise — its just not in my DNA to move my body in a way that will create sweat (okay, there is one way, but my mum might be reading this…). I was the least sporty boy at school, the one who always sat on the sidelines. I was useless at rugby and football, not the best swimmer and forget about any kind of gymnastic ability — a forward roll was about my limit. So with all that said, I shall now be that annoying person who tells you… Read more “Working out has become enjoyable…”
I was trying out at this gym when I visited London two weeks ago. The location is very convenient. Being a General Manager of a global service management company, I could feel everyone was so naturally nice and friendly to welcome you when I stepped in. I have been Equinox for years, but I love the cozy and warm feeling at this gym. You can really focus on your training without distracting from anything else. The personal trainer, Mike, really helped me to engage in the program particularly designed for me during the three sessions. I had a such solid… Read more “I love the cozy and warm feeling at this gym…”
I have been training in the shared personal training sessions every Monday and Wednesday evening, since October 2015, with Steve. These are fantastic sessions and never in a group of more than 4, and often just 2, so the attention is really focused on each individual making it incredibly effective. Steve is a very dedicated personal training guru and everyone who takes part in the group PT sessions leave at the end having had a great work out. I have started to notice significant changes just in the short time I have been doing these and I look forward to… Read more “I am a huge fan of the Shared PT…”
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… Read more “Quickly noticed a significant difference…”
The Fitting Rooms is a really fabulous gym with a truly fantastic team! When they say personal and tailored for you they mean it! I have been training with Dave Jordan for over four years and have achieved more than I ever thought possible thanks to his expert knowledge and abundant motivation, encouragement and inspiration. If you’ve not tried The Fitting Rooms gym yet then it really is a MUST!
I’ve been training with Yasmin for around 3 months and it’s one of the best things I’ve done. I’ve never been really sporty but with Yasmin I can feel myself getting stronger and fitter every week – not only in the gym but in normal life too. It’s very satisfying not having aching arms when I’m carrying the Sainsburys shopping home! Yasmin is really supportive and has helped me enjoy the gym, which is something that has never happened before! Taking up one-on-one personal training was honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made: even in such a short time,… Read more “One of the best things I’ve done…”
I had major spine surgery some years back and have to be mindful of continuing disc degeneration. This means that what I do when exercising is really important. The expertise and equipment available at the Fitting Rooms has meant that I have achieved a level of strength and flexibility I would not have imagined possible. This has had a substantial positive impact on my quality of life as well as being fun with all the added benefits of shaping up, better sleep quality and greater energy levels.
Highly recommending The Fitting Rooms PT gym. Convenient location, great equipment, friendly and motivating staff. Personal trainers there know their jobs very well and help you get the best out of your sessions. I was never a fan of going to the gym, but after training in TFR, gym is now an enjoyable part of my routine.
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 started training with Dave in 2014 and really recommend using him. I was looking to enhance my all round fitness and he has helped me to do that and build strength. I have achieved things that I never expected to and I am in better shape than ever. Plus with better diet and eating I no longer get energy lows in the afternoon. Training with Dave has made positive difference.
My husband and I have been training with David Jordan for five years and we were delighted to join his new family-run gym. The Fitting Rooms feels exclusive, clean, very friendly, and doesn’t have all of the distractions of a “typical” city gym. David has been professional, reliable, easy to talk to, and has always offered a well-rounded service: quantified strength, flexibility, and nutrition. Now that I am pregnant we trust him to train me as far as possible and will continue with him post-baby as well. The Fitting Rooms and Dave are highly recommended by this SE16 resident –… Read more “The Fitting Rooms feels exclusive…”
They push you and keep you going till the very end…
I started at The Fitting Rooms a little apprehensive as I’d never trained with weights before. It didn’t take long for me to actively look forward to my Shared PT sessions at TFR. The team is wonderful and incredibly motivated – they push you and keep you going till the very end. Programmes change every month – keeping things fresh and challenging you at every step of the way. I joined with a goal in mind and I can safely say that I wouldn’t have reached it without the constant guidance and support from all the trainers at TFR. I… Read more “They push you and keep you going till the very end…”
Having not done any regular exercise for far too long I joined the Shared PT sessions at The Fitting Rooms at the start of 2016. I have both thoroughly enjoyed my sessions at the gym and seen a marked improvement in my overall fitness and general health. Their sessions, which vary and evolve over time, are challenging but realistic, the HIIT circuits are not for the faint hearted but the post workout endorphin rush is worth the effort! The team, led by Dave, Steve and Yasmin, are all knowledgable and tough trainers who also are friendly, approachable and always willing… Read more “Fun, focused and professional…”
You really feel part of the family when you train here!
I decided to invest in the ultimate focus package and it was the best decision I have made. It was important to me to find a place where the staff are friendly, facilities are clean and somewhere I enjoy going and I have definitely found that here. Other members are open and chatty, the PTs are all very experienced and knowledgeable and I am already seeing great results!! If you are considering a Personal Training studio I would highly recommend coming here. It is a family business through and through and you really feel part of the family when you… Read more “You really feel part of the family when you train here!”
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… Read more “The gym is equipped to the highest standard…”
I have been training with Yasmin since June 2014, during which time I have seen my strength and fitness massively increase. Yasmin has a wealth of knowledge and a real passion and love for fitness and strength training. She approaches our sessions with such consistency and attention to detail. Under her expert eye, I have been able to lift heavier week on week, which is really rewarding, whilst still maintaining a strict program and improving my form. I have learnt so much over the past year; my confidence on the gym floor is such that I don’t think twice about… Read more “I have been able to lift heavier week on week…”
I couldn’t love training with Yasmin at The Fitting Rooms more. The facilities are pristine and lovely and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. I had never tried weight training before and am now completely obsessed! I had hit a plateau at my old gym, spending hours doing cardio, not noticing any change in my body, and certainly not enjoying myself. I now cannot wait for my sessions with Yasmin. She has taught me so much about my body and our sessions are never dull. Funnily enough, weight training increases my heart rate more than I ever noticed doing… Read more “I finally feel strong!”
I have been training with Yasmin since May 2013 and I give her all the credit that I now look forward to going to the gym and am a self-confessed gymaholic! Her dedication to her work combined with her knowledge and understanding of fitness have been extremely inspiring for me. Yas’s approach to training is fun, effective, unique and motivating. It is not a repetitive, mechanical process of doing reps and is not all about running on a treadmill aimlessly for hours on end. She focuses a lot on activating the various muscle groups so it’s impossible to cheat and… Read more “I now look forward to going to the gym…”
When I started training with Fitting Rooms I hadn’t trained properly for over 6 months and was definitely in need of a kick start so did I did the 3 months Shared PT Focus package, training three times a week. I loved every minute of it and the results were clear to see. I was pushed in every class I had with each trainer bringing something new to the shared session. Sharing the sessions made it both cost effective and motivating as each week you saw someone new or someone progress. I’ve moved jobs now and am no longer local,… Read more “The results were clear to see…”
I’m really happy with my 1-2-1 training at The Fitting Rooms – it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach and after my first few months I’ve seen a real change in my body. The emphasis is on strength building with correct form so I’ve learnt loads and am not left broken after a session. The staff are all super friendly and the changing rooms / showers are big, bright and clean. Another plus point is the free provision of towels and padlocks.
Shared personal training is really cost effective…
Great staff, great atmosphere & great results (if you put the effort in)! Could not recommend highly enough. Shared personal training is really cost effective too and everyone there is so friendly. There really is a team effort when training. Transition between exercises is so smooth and your trainer knows exactly what weight you lifted previously and what they should raise you by to push you further. One word of warning beware the HIIT sessions 🙂 tough but very effective!
The trainers are all very friendly and knowledgeable…
I started attending The Fitting Rooms in May and so far the experience has been great. The training is varied and I get to learn a lot of new things and machines to use. The concept whereby the trainers gather a lot of information and know exactly what weight/effort you need to put in and also monitoring your progress, is very innovative. The trainers are all very friendly and knowledgeable and as someone who has been averse to gyms and their grumpy instructors in the past, this is a real plus. All in all, for me going twice a week,… Read more “The trainers are all very friendly and knowledgeable…”
There’s a genuine warmth woven into the fabric of this gym…
What makes The Fitting Rooms great and draws me back time after time is quite simply the dedicated staff and welcoming environment. I was always quite apprehensive about joining a gym and felt a little intimidated about gym culture. However, The Fitting Rooms is unlike anything I’ve previously experienced. There’s a genuine warmth woven into the fabric of this gym, which helps to create a positive and friendly community. Since I’ve started training at The Fitting Rooms, I’ve felt an increased level of confidence and focus in my life. I always look forward to the next session, knowing it will… Read more “There’s a genuine warmth woven into the fabric of this gym…”
Feel stronger and can now run long distance easily…
I love The Fitting Rooms because it’s not like your usual gym where you are battling for a space on machines or fighting for weights along with all the other sweaty people trying to get bikini / budgie-smuggler ready for the summer. This gym is private and personal and ideal for people who are self-conscious or work out better without distractions. As a female wanting to get into shape and lifting weights for the first time, the results have been amazing! I feel stronger and can now run long distance easily, not to mention all the other good changes within… Read more “Feel stronger and can now run long distance easily…”
I have been to a few gyms and I really recommend this place for its friendly atmosphere, facilities and its knowledgeable staff. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. You sign up for shared personal training sessions with three other people (sometimes less) and you are each shown by the trainer how to do a particular exercise. You get to know the other members and everyone actually says hello to each other, which came as a shock to me at first! A different feeling from other chain gyms. As it’s shared PT, you will always be able to access the facilities… Read more “The PTs are friendly and highly knowledgeable…”
I’m squatting and deadlifting weights that make me proud of myself…
I have been working with Dave since 2014 whenever I can fit in a session. I have always been a keen sportsman and had a good understanding of how to exercise certain muscle groups so hadn’t really looked at working with a PT before. Dave changed that opinion! I developed a knee injury from running which I have been unable to shake so working out in different ways became important to me to keep fit and in shape. On top of introducing me to specific exercises to help my knee problem which work (a number of physios have been less… Read more “I’m squatting and deadlifting weights that make me proud of myself…”
Training with the team at The Fitting Rooms in London Bridge has given me both a varied and challenging workout regime to follow alongside my usual gym routine. I’ve been introduced to an entirely new way of training and one that really gets results – the results I wanted but wasn’t getting from my boring gym cycle before. The shared personal training sessions offer great value for money and the quality of sessions are by no means compromised. I would highly recommend The Fitting Rooms to anybody that wants to tone, build strength, and generally make their workouts interesting again,… Read more “A varied and challenging workout regime…”
I’ve worked with James at The Fitting Rooms over the past eight months as part of my rehabilitation following major abdominal surgery. He has been outstanding. There was a proper handover sought from my physiotherapist and he has submitted his programme and report to my physio again for external review and she has noticed real gains. He and I feel that I am well on my way to pre-surgery levels. His approach has been planned throughout, always getting the right balance between ensuring safety and developing my core strength and general fitness. Significantly, he has identified the additional psychological components… Read more “I am well on my way to pre-surgery levels…”
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… Read more “I more than doubled my strength in the big lifts…”
This is the best place on earth! I love training at The Fitting Rooms. I had never trained with weights before but it didn’t take long for me to actively look forward to my Shared PT sessions at The Fitting Rooms. The team is fantastic and incredibly knowledgable, friendly and approachable. I get constant guidance and support from the trainers and already, only after 4 weeks, I can see changes within my body. TFR isn’t like your usual gym! It’s private, personal and very female-friendly. I feel very comfortable training there and this is an ideal place for people who… Read more “This is the best place on earth!”
I’ve had more noticeable and rewarding results in my first 10-weeks at The Fitting Rooms than after a decade of ‘being a member of the gym’. The team are friendly, professional, engaged, and take your training and progression seriously. The workouts are challenging, but achievable, and having an active, passionate trainer keeps you engaged, accountable and progressing. Shared training is the way of the future!
The best thing I have ever done for my health, happiness and confidence…
The best thing I have ever done for my health, happiness and confidence was joining TFR. If you are looking to work with passionate, experienced and talented trainers who are experts in their field, this is the place for you. The shared personal training is an inspired way to give folks the individually tailored and challenging attention they need, while making it more accessible to people who don’t want 1 to 1 PT for whatever reason. Dave, Steve and Yas have built an inclusive environment where I feel completely comfortable (something rare for a gym) and where you can also expect fun… Read more “The best thing I have ever done for my health, happiness and confidence…”
Has helped me build the knowledge and confidence to workout on my own…
Before I started training with Yasmin I was a semi-regular gym goer, sticking to the same limited selection of exercises I was comfortable with. I kept to the cross trainer and static weight machines, too intimidated to enter the free-weights area, and was making very limited progress. More than 18 months later and it’s completely different story. Since I began my sessions with Yasmin I’ve had a very clear focus, she regularly changes up my plan, taking time teach me exercises I’m unfamiliar with to ensure proper form and challenging me to get the best results. Yasmin has helped me… Read more “Has helped me build the knowledge and confidence to workout on my own…”
I started training with Dave in 2011. As I put on a middle age spread I was keen to get back into shape. Working with a personal trainer once a week helps keep my training in focus and now forms an integral part of my overall exercise regime. He structures my programme to suit my individual goals and targets and encourages and pushes me beyond what I capable of doing alone. I am fitter, stronger and have a better physique than ever before in my life. Dave was invaluable in taking me through rehabilitation and strengthening work after a knee… Read more “Pushes me beyond what I capable of doing alone…”
Quite simply, The Fitting Rooms has completely changed my life! I actually look forward to working out and feel great afterwards. I was a complete gym novice – never ventured near scary looking weights and stuck to the standard treadmill, bike etc. However, The Fitting Rooms has made me feel excited to work out and most importantly made it easy to integrate it into my lifestyle. The Fitting Rooms offers a complete package too: easy sign up, consultation free of charge and an option to buy a block of passes which you can use any time to suit you. All… Read more “The Fitting Rooms has completely changed my life…”
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… Read more “Guided me through rehabilitation exercises…”
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
They actually care about your fitness and well being!
Amazing Gym! Amazing Workout!! Amazing People!!! From someone that doesn’t have a lot of spare time, these guys know their stuff! They even explain the benefits of each exercise you do. There are not a lot of private gyms in zone 1 (London) that are professional as well as personable with their clients. They actually care about your fitness and well being! Highly recommended!
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.
They know their stuff and will make you feel welcome!
I love working out at this gym. Everyone is friendly and the facilities are fantastic. All the sessions are conducted with a personal trainer so you never have to wait for the machines – or the showers – which is what I hate about big gyms! I’m really pleased with the results I’ve seen while training with Dave Jordan. He listens to my fitness goals, creates programmes that work with my lifestyle and pushes me just the right amount. It’s extremely motivating to see improvements in my training week by week. I always look forward to my workouts here. I… Read more “They know their stuff and will make you feel welcome!”
I started working with Yasmin in January 2014 and it is genuinely the best thing I have ever done. Prior to this I had never really done much in the gym and always felt a bit stupid because I didn’t know what I was doing, but now I genuinely enjoy exercise and look forward to it. I absolutely love our sessions together – she pushes me further than I ever would myself and I have seen truly amazing results. I was a rather wobbly size 12/14 and now I’m a toned size 10 and I’ve never been happier – not… Read more “The best thing I have ever done”
