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
Completely deserved 5 star average for The Fitting Rooms! I’ve been training with them for over 6 months now and haven’t missed a week, which says a lot! The shared PT sessions are just as good as any one on one session you’ll find, if not better. Having others around you helps you to keep pushing yourself and, so importantly, makes it affordable meaning you can maintain the training long term. The whole team are experts in their field, they put you at ease in what can be an intimidating environment, and always try to get the best out of you. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
From the moment you enter everyone is really friendly and welcoming.
I couldn’t recommend the fitting rooms enough. From the moment you enter everyone is really friendly and welcoming. One thing that separates this place from the competition is that people of all different shapes and sizes train together (no need to feel awkward if you’ve never had a PT or don’t look like a “gym bunny”), and all the members really encourage each other. There are different trainers each with their own style so you can pick and choose sessions to suit what you want to work on and who with! The price point is excellent and the option of shared PT means that you get to train with like-minded individuals who really spur you on (which is often necessary!). The way that they have morphed this into online/outdoor training sessions so quickly after the covid-10 lock-down is really impressive. Don’t be fooled, even without the standard heavy gym weights… Read more “From the moment you enter everyone is really friendly and welcoming.”
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 would highly recommend the TFR to everyone – regardless of your experience (or inexperience) in weight training or whatever fitness goal you’re working toward.
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 continuing. Not only is it a great work out (I find it more productive than when I have had 1 on 1 PT sessions at other gyms) but it is also good fun and it is good to have other people taking part so you can push one another.

I would recommend The Fitting Rooms to anyone. All the trainers are highly professional but also really personable which make the work outs fun! I appreciate the way they take their time with explaining each move so we have the correct form when performing each exercise. They have a caring attitude as well as working you hard! The gym has a really friendly atmosphere – it is not at all intimidating and good value for money. I do the shared PT sessions which are fun and supportive..
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 that led me to over-protect the surgery site and has used graded exposure to help me build my confidence when making certain movements. I cannot recommend him and The Fitting Rooms highly enough for this rehab-orientated approach.
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!
