Spent a few months in Exeter for work and needed a gym to join as I wanted to build strength for a triathlon. Tried a few but Quay Fitness was by far the best. Staff very friendly and supportive. Provided me with great planning and advice, and kept me motivated. Equipment was high quality and location ideal. Would definitely recommend. More...

After seeing a post on Facebook about Hiit the spot and reading up about it. I was very interested in going along for the 1st week free session to see what it was like. There I met Paul Little the fitness instructor and followed Some of his many execises. I later went home and mention this to my friend who then came along. Well I loved it and decided to join up. 8 weeks on and i am still going strong � � At first this wasn't easy,but as time has gone on I have seen an improvement in not only my fitness but my mental health and body shape. Come on lady's if you are 35 years of age and up wards then come along and give it a try. What have you got to lose remember first week is FREE � yes that's right first week FREE TRIAL � if you have anymore questions free free to ask....... More...

7 months on edit: I have been working with Paul now for about 7 months and still think he is an absolutely amazing trainer. He pushes me and gets me to work harder than I would ever work training on my own and I have achieved so much. I still have a long way to go as I was starting at a very heavy and extremely unfit starting point, but here are just a few things I can no do, that I could not before, both the little things and big are just as important to me. I can now lift 100kg, I can do full sit ups, I can walk for miles, I can do press ups, I can sit cross legged, I can kneel down, I can keep up with my brownies, I can run for a bus and not die and keep up with people half my size who have been training for years in a boxercise class. All things I never thought I could do and with Paul's help and encouragement I have achieved, along with reducing my severe anxiety to almost nothing and sleeping better than I have ever slept. I have also found a genuine love for what I am doing, it is no longer a chore to go to the gym, its something I look forward to at the end of a working day. I am someone who easily gains weight and so this is something I will need to work at forever, but Paul has helped me find a way to enjoy it and look forward to continuing working on myself.Edit: In an edit to the below review I posted a couple of weeks ago, I have come to the end of my initial first 6 weeks with Paul and done my measurements. In 6 weeks I have lost 4 inches off my waist, 3 inches from my stomach, 3 inches from hips/bum and many more inches elsewhere!!! Hooray!!! :-)Original: I first looked for a personal trainer to help me to lose weight, I just searched applied to a database of trainers and Paul contacted me back. We had our initial meeting to talk about what I wanted from training and it was clear from the start that Paul was full of knowledge and really cared about helping people reach their fitness and health goals. I have now been training with Paul for over a month and the improvements I have seen in myself is amazing, it is no longer just about losing weight for me either. Paul has helped me immensely with nutrition, exercise and general lifestyle. In just 5 short weeks I am less stiff and aching, especially first thing in the morning, my energy is up, I am sleeping better and the inches are coming off. I could not recommend Paul highly enough as a personal trainer. More...

I have trained with Paul for the past two months now and am really enjoying our weekly training sessions. As a complete beginner to weight training and structured exercise, Paul has been great at creating a non-intimidating and encouraging environment. I have learnt a great deal and now have the confidence to train in all areas of the gym! I can’t believe how quickly my mood, energy levels and physical appearance have improved too. More...

Paul has been very thoughtful when planning our sessions, which take place in my home, gradually increasing the intensity of exercises, but encouraging all the time.
He does keep me focused, but if something really does not suit me, he adapts it or changes it to achieve the same results. I am really benefitting from the sessions with him.

My partner and I decided to employ a personal trainer after Christmas in an effort to kick start our weight loss and fitness program. We chose Paul on the basis of other reviews we'd read about him and have not been disappointed. We were not in the market for a drill-sergeant approach, more someone who would work us hard and challenge us without making us feel demoralised. Paul has come up trumps on all fronts. He put together a personalised training program that has been both effective and challenging, but never to the extent that we felt overwhelmed. After our initial six week program we have now gladly committed to training weekly with Paul and look forward to our weekly sessions and to adding to the progress we have achieved to date. More...

I took up training with Paul because I wanted to build muscle and to help get fitter. I've had a few sessions with him each week over the last six months and feel so much more confident in using the various gym equipment and executing different exercises. I've also noticed how I feel much healthier and my muscles are bigger and I feel more confident in the way I look. Paul has been a great support in achieving my goals, he is highly skilled and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a personal trainer in and around the Exeter area. More...

Paul was a huge help to me gaining more confidence with fitness, and in particular, with doing weight training. He is also really supportive and sensitive to the individuals' needs- definitely a top choice for a PT in Exeter!

I found Paul to be an excellent trainer. I am 70 years old and he was respectful of my age with the exercises he set for me but at the same time did not allow me to slack.
I would have liked to have continued with my training but my finances would not allow it. However I have put into practice much of the training that Paul gave me while I was with him.

Hi, promised I would be back well here I am. Paul did not know what he was taking on seven months ago!!! To say the least my health has been so bad (COPD, weak muscles and knee replacement pending) that Paul has had to change my whole programme when he has walked through the door. All I can say is that the improvements in the last seven months have been fantastic; I can walk further than I have done for three years (did go out in a wheel chair) my upper body strength is coming on leaps and bounds. I will never run a marathon or be a gold medal weight lifter but Paul has helped me to get back my life, rather than sitting on my bum all day. Thanks Paul, you should be called Mr Motivator.

I have been training with Paul for six weeks now and the difference in my overall fitness and weight loss has been unbelievable. Paul is a great PT he pushes me when I need it and is very patient when I need him to be. Paul listened to my needs and built a my personal programme around this. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone who is serious about getting fit and wants to engage a personal trainer. More...

Paul Little of Inspiring Fitness is a very knowledgeable and personable fitness professional.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who has any training goals and would benefit from learning more about their nutritional intake.

I wanted a Personal Trainer to help me loose weight, get fitter and improve my energy levels. Paul seemed a little different to the other personal trainers around Exeter, so decided to sign up to 6 weeks initially.

Paul really seems to understand what motivates me to loose weight, what exercises I enjoy and has created a variable routine which is helping me loose weight. He understands the science / physiology behind weight loss and exercise and can explain this in a way which makes sense.

I particularly like the flexibility around when we have training sessions and ability to fit around my home, work and family commitments. After a few weeks Paul really understood me, my values and attitude to exercise. He pushes me during our training sessions, in a nice gentle way, rather than drill sergeant you see so many other personal trainers doing.

I would recommend Paul to my friends and family.

I am. 67 year old woman with serious health problems with no strength in my legs at all after being on steroids for 37 Years.. I have only been with Paul a short while but have found Paul to be very understanding, caring and motivational. I am physically really weak and Paul has designed a programme for mr which is constantly evolving as I get stronger. I think everyone should be lucky enough to have a trainer like Paul, and anyone thinking of giving him a go should. Whatch this space I will be back to let you know how I am getting on, Paul and I have set a goal of being able to walk the length of Sidmouth seafront by August 17th. Wish me luck. Lyn More...

Q&A

I help my clients achieve their goals by providing safe, effective training routines, excellent nutritional advice and meal plans and through encouragement and support. I am available to answer questions 24/7 via text messaging or email.

There is no "secret" to achieving the body of your dreams. All it takes is hard work, persevereance and, above all, consistency

The best thing about my job is seeing the delight my clients show when they reach a milestone and race past it.

I just got to the point where I was fed up with other people running my life and decided to do something about it. As I'd been involved in fitness and weight training as a personal activity for many years I decided to use that enthusiasm and knowledge to help change people's lives for the better.

With me what you won't get is someone shouting at you like some kind of army drill sergeant! Instead you'll get a friendly, warm, encouraging and supportive trainer whose sole aim is to help you achieve your goals and who doesn't try to boost his own ego by having his clients end up as a sweaty mess on the floor!

Of course, I expect you to follow my instruction and to work hard. However, at the end of the day it's your decision how much effort you put in but if you are prepared to do what others won't do you'll have the body others only dream of.
