Firstly I must say a huge thank you for helping me achieve my goal to break 20mins for a 5K run. For me being over the half-century it was even more of a challenge.
Despite the pain I must say I really enjoyed and looked forward to every session. You clearly understand how to get the most out of a training session and not push the body too hard but hard enough to make it adapt to the desired objectives. The box jumping was a revelation in what explosive power can be created, and with your gym work focusing on one leg at a time was, in hindsight for me, so logical as we run on one leg at a time!
Your energy, motivation and knowledge is second to none and I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone serious simply about progressing their fitness level or looking to a new challenging goal.
Keep up the great work Pete and thank you for helping me. Kind regards,Angus
Our workouts had become repetitive, monotonous and boring, so we decided to start training with Pete. His knowledge of weight loss, lean muscle gain and nutrition is phenomenal. This all helped us achieve our goals and increase our own knowledge . He created tailor made workouts structured to our abilities, whilst keeping them fun but challenging. Working out as a pair is a great option as we enjoy the friendly competition and also motivate each other to work harder. As we share similar goals we can work with Pete and with each other outside of the sessions. This makes it easier to stay on track and also share the experience. We still train with Pete to this day and its one of the best decisions we have ever made.
Pete has been providing personal training for me for about two years. My goals have been to increase strength, to increase mobility and to maintain my weight, all of which Pete has helped me keep. As I am naturally quite lazy when it comes to exercise, he ensures the sessions are focused, yet relaxed in manner, so I find the hour passes very quickly and I always feel great at the end of it. His new gym is kitted out with high quality and visually pleasing equipment and I look forward to keeping fit, strong and healthy under his instruction.
After turning 40 it was my goal to get fit again. I was stuck in a rut and needed a different routine. I signed up for weekly PT sessions with Pete and I never expected to get the results I have. With Pete's guidance and knowledge he not only just trained me, he pushed me and educated me along the way. I have a completely different perspective on training and eating and I have Pete to thank for that. He's super patient, knowledgeable and I actually now look forward to exercising!
Pete has coached me for the last two years to get my strength up to scratch for me to complete an Ironman triathlon in Lanzarote last year and now my next challenge is to run The North Downs Way 100 miles,
Pete not only provided me with a tailored weekly training plan he also has managed to keep me injury free.
Ironman Lanzarote 13hrs 31mins.
South Downs Way 50 mile run
“Since signing up for personal training with Pete we’ve both become a lot more confident in working out, especially using free weights which we previously hadn’t used. Pete is extremely knowledgeable and an amazing personal trainer who really focuses on your goals and helps you to achieve them. Not only have we become more confident but we also completed our first Spartan Race this month with the help of Pete’s training”
About 6 weeks ago I went to Peter to complement my training routine. I was in the process of training for my Krav Maga G1 grading. I spent an hour with Peter discussing my needs, as I have some historical injuries Peter designed a program that helped with injury reduction and strengthening of key areas.
I returned to Peter a week later and after a short warm up he took me through the set of exercises that he had designed for my needs.
I followed the program as best as I could factoring in work and my Krav Training.
Two weeks ago I went up to Harlow and completed a six and half hour grading, thanks to Peter's program I passed my grading and I am now qualified as a Krav Maga instructor. Thanks Peter
As an osteopath I’m constantly telling my patients how important core stability (and maintaining a sensible weight) is for your back.
Unfortunately I didn’t practice what I preached until last year when I met Pete.
I’d been suffering with pain in my thoracic spine and knew I needed to strengthen my back and core if I wanted to be pain free.
Within a few months I achieved this goal and by going regularly I haven’t suffered since.
Since my first visit he has been extremely patient with my ever changing goals, he is knowledgeable, encouraging and safe.
I can’t thank him enough and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any of my patients to him.
Thank you Pete.
I’ve always chopped and changed between exercise regimes, trying to find something I could stick to. I got in touch with Pete because I wanted to focus on feeling positive about my body - learn to appreciate what it’s capable of, instead of picking holes in how it looks! Pete has been fantastic to work with. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and every session feels truly customised - to my personality, as well as my ability! That means he gets the very best out of me every time. He’s patient and reassuring and the private studio setting is perfect for an introvert like me! I always leave feeling energised and refreshed, and find it a brilliant way to wind down mentally too!
I contacted Pete when i decided, after hitting nearly 19 stone (266 lbs), enough was enough. I was overweight, sluggish, unfit and old before my time (47 felt like 65!). I wasnt happy with how i looked or how i felt so took some action in contacting Pete.
I started by first session in June 2019 and had 12 weekly sessions. I lost 52 lbs thanks to Pete’s tuition, improved nutrition, reducing alcohol and of course exercising in between sessions with Pete but with his guidance. I have dropped 6 inches from my waste, 4 from my chest i’ve had to buy a whole new wardrobe and feel a million times better than before.
It was Pete who helped me focus on all aspects of what i needed to do and was there for me each week to keep me motivated and to keep me honest i couldn’t have done it without him. Thanks Pete!
