Review of Gavin Townsend Personal Trainer by mark

I was initially tentative about going to a personal trainer as my goal was to improve my fitness and very sport specific. Rather than dictate to me what i should be doing Gavin asked me lots of questions around my personal goals and challenges in the past and built a bespoke plan for me. The motivation and workouts have really helped me to get into better shape and take on a big challenge later this year.

Gavin has been AMAZING! I’ve been using him for a couple of weeks now and bought 10 sessions but will definitely be continuing.

Being 20 it can be quite intimidating contacting people for a PT when your not very confident in fitness but he has been nothing but patient and made me feel very comfortable exercising which I never thought I would say.

6/5 stars would defo recommend ☺️☺️

Working with Gavin has been fantastic. I started with him having suffered with mental illness issues. I was looking for guidance and direction for my physical wellbeing to improve. Having cerebral palsy, I needed someone who could accommodate me and my extra needs.

Since I’ve started with Gavin, I’ve been given incredible guidance and support that is transforming my life and changing my daily routine for the better. I am extremely confident that my sessions with Gavin are working to improve my physical health and subsequently has improved my state of mind. The sessions are tailored to my own abilities perfectly.

I met Gavin through my daughter and started training with him at the end of May 2015. My weight had always fluctuated. With Gavin's help i have lost nearly 3 stone, and have changed my eating habits, having taken his advice on nutrition and we train weekly. I am the leanest, strongest and happiest with my body than ever, and at the age of 52 am going to get on stage in one week in heels and a bikini. I'm still in shock but looking forward to posting the transformation photos. Thanks Gavin x

Gavin's been a friend for a few years now and his passion for his job is unquestionable! I've been having personal training sessions with him for less than 9 weeks now and he's helped me get back into shape. I was in a bad way when I came to him and he's encouraged me to keep pushing myself in fitness and other aspects of my life and I'm truly grateful!

I started going to Gav for my PT's around 8 weeks ago. I have just started my 2nd block booking. I am seeing results myself however as I work with the public, I have had numerous comments on my body shape changing.... He's not just A PT. to me he has transformed my body shape. It's all the nutrition advice. You get the whole package.
My aim is to wear a crop top in the summer. Will I be? DEFINATELY! So if you are thinking about doing something. This is the person. You will not be dissapointed.

Always makes the sections enjoyable and not a chore. Well worth the investment, would and have recommend Gavin's 121 to anyone wants to look learner and feel better.

Great PT that has developed into more than a pt...he's always eager to offer me advice and motivation on training and nutrition, I started my fitness journey last year around February originally with the aim of just losing weight and gaining muscle...I would say I lost around 2 stone of fat in all under Gavin's regimes and grew so much In confidence that I started doing my now lifelong passion of MMA and Jiu jitsu... So I have a lot to be thankful for. So why delay ? Get fit! Get confident! And achieve what YOU want

After a Google search of a good PT in my area, Gavin's name came up. I bit the bullet and met him in September 2013, I knew then I had nothing to loose but weight! Gavin's expertise and experience put me at ease and I soon started to shed the weight I needed to loose. If you are serious about investing in yourself, he's the one to help, with a no prisoners approach don't want to have a PT who won't say it like it is. Don't let that put you off! He's amazing at what he does!

The advice Gavin gave was at the right time for me and the plan has been sustainable. He is highly motivated and it's infectious making you feel and realise that it is possible.
Healthy Sustainable Eating and Good Training Plans. You get what you pay for.

Review of Gavin Townsend Personal Trainer by James Lang

Went to see Gav 6 months ago for nutrition and workout plan to kick start my year. I was underweight and my efforts at the gym were getting me nowhere. Although I haven't been as strict with myself as I could have been I have followed the routine and used the meal plan pretty consistently and gained over a stone - most of it lean muscle. Gav also recommended another PT he works with who was able to tweak my leg day plan to account for my scoliosis (which means I can't squat effectively) and it's given me more confidence and a solid base to kick on from.

Gav has helped me not only with my fitness, but with my nutrition and motivation too! I needed to be fitter and faster for my job and my sport of dog agility! I will certainly be sticking with him!!

Review of Gavin Townsend Personal Trainer by Aneel Akhtar
5 Aneel Akhtar

Since getting a plan from Gav I have lost incredible amount of weight in the last 3 months. One thing I like about this guy that he keeps you going and most of all encourages you. Nobody can force you to push or do Anything your not comfortable with but with the right people around you and to mentor you throughout is the best motivation you can get. Look forward to do more with Yah Gav and learn more of course. TOO MAN ���
P.s be prepared for a video ‘on the spot’ ��

Review of Gavin Townsend Personal Trainer by Nick Sanders

Can't say enough for what Gavin has done for myself and others that I know during the time I have spent training with him.

I was carrying more weight than ever and had let too many things such as work and other stresses become my excuses for poor nutrition and exercise habits.

Gavin went through every single detail from my lifestyle and daily nutrition to the exact amounts and intensity of cardio whilst helping me to plan effective goals that were obtainable and progressive.

I set the target of my wedding (and of course Stag Do) to get myself in as good a shape possible.

I lost over 3 stone and build more lean muscle giving me a confidence I needed in myself and also allowed me to feel like I could shop for more variety as opposed to clothes I was comfortable in.

The psychological benefits were the biggest help in guiding me with assurance and confidence which changed my outlook on day to day life. I've become a stronger all round person and I can't thank Gavin enough.

He remains a fantastic friend and will give advice and help whenever needed.

My brother has since since joined and you can see he has achieved even greater things to which my whole family are grateful. We lost our father to heart disease at a young age and this has spurred us on to focus on the importance of health and fitness whilst still being able to enjoy ourselves.

Highly recommended and like anything, try it before you judge and doubt.
