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…”
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 broader than just the hour session itself, giving encouragement afterwards or sending helpful articles to explain a point. Yasmin recognises my goals and celebrates with me when I achieve them so that it feels like a working partnership. The sessions themselves are physically very well balanced – I showed a… Read more “The training programmess are always fun and varied…”
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 operation and I am now participating in distance running and cycling events and have completed a triathlon: something I never thought I would do! My son, Ben, has also recently started joining my personal training sessions. Sharing sessions has introduced more fun, enthusiasm and a little competitive edge to the… Read more “Pushes me beyond what I capable of doing alone…”
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 to offer advice and help. I cannot recommend them highly enough if you are looking for a fun, focused and professional team to help you keep to your programme and push you to improved fitness levels.
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 in a normal gym. I trained weekly until just before my due date. It was great fun and I found it highly effective. My overall fitness level and strength definitely improved, and I even got some definition in my arms. I had no back pain at all during my pregnancy… Read more “A safe programme to help me cope with the pregnancy…”
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.
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.
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 without having to queue up. They have everything to match whatever fitness goal you have from losing weight to building muscle. Above all else, the PTs are friendly and highly knowledgeable. I have been to the gym on and off in the past but I have received great tips for… Read more “The PTs are friendly and highly knowledgeable…”
