Joining FIT just over 2 months ago has really kick started my fitness having tried to work out at home with an 18 month old. To date not one session has been the same and I've really noticed a vast improvement with not only my strength but my cardio levels too. All the trainers are exceptionally qualified and more than happy to support with queries or amending sessions to work around an injury. Best gym I've been too and and a great atmosphere to exercise in. More...

visited Christina for a sports massage last week. I was very impressed by her knowledge and she clearly understood sporting injuries well. and could offer advise throughout the treatment. I will happily recommend her to friends at various run clubs if I'm asked who to go to!! More...

Just wanted to say how amazing Darren and the team are. My wife and I have just ran 150 miles across the Sahara Desert for charity in the annual Marathon Des Sables race. They successfully treated and managed our injuries during training to limit our ‘time off’ as well as giving advice on nutrition and training. Now the race is over, they have the more difficult job of putting our broken bodies back together! More...

Just been for first appointment re long standing knee problems. Brilliant session with exercises to do at home. Great explanation of the problem and great that it looks to be soft tissue issues and strengthening needed. Had thought it was a bone issue so very happy. Can't recommend Darren and his colleagues highly enough. More...

3rd time I’ve visited for different racing injuries and they have never failed to get me back on a bike. Darren sorted a knee injury a couple of years ago and now David has first sorted out a torn rotator cuff muscle / broken collarbone and now a trapped nerve caused by whiplash from a racing crash. These guys know their stuff and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone More...

An amazing place! I was nervous about going to a new gym, but I shouldn’t have been. The staff are so friendly as soon as you walk in the door. I’ve had a knee injury and I’ve done PT and strength classes to build my strength and confidence back up. All of the staff really know their stuff and push me to achieve, but never beyond a realistic goal. I would highly recommend this gym. More...

FIT is the best gym I’ve been to! After sustaining a knee injury during a skiing accident, I joined FIT to regain the flexibility in my knee and the strength in my legs to hopefully make it back for the first game of the hockey season. The highly qualified team quickly got me back to the pitch, stronger and faster than ever. I’ve been attending semi-private training sessions ever since. It’s so much fun working with the team on your goals, improving your technique and getting stronger week on week. I couldn’t recommend this gym highly enough! More...

Fantastic facility and great instructors. I had a very thorough assessment here which went far beyond what I've experienced previously. This resulted in a personalised training plan designed to enhance my strengths and improve my weaknesses. It's a vibrant and clean facility with excellent kit and the instructors clearly love their work. Highly recommended for anyone after a good strength and conditioning gym. More...

I joined FIT (twas called Smart fitness when I joined) as a reluctant participant and although in many ways I still am (reluctant) it's the longest I've ever attended a gym without having to be carried there kicking and screaming with the promise of copious amounts of cake and alcohol afterwards. Just kidding...mostly. Great trainers (including the kind you wear), excellent facilities, decent price. I would like to say I'm on the way to being a convert but convict would probably be more appropriate. If you're thinking of joining a friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable gym I doubt you'll be disappointed with this one. If you like looking at yourself while you train, this gym aint for you. More...

First appointment today and Steven was fantastic. I’ve had a niggling running injury and decided that I needed some proper, professional advice rather than just ‘googling’ it! Steven was very knowledgeable and thorough. He explained everything clearly, with superb advice and gave me a clear exercise plan. I can not recommend Steven and the practice highly enough! More...

At the age of 54 it was early in my life to have both knees replaced but it was necessary! Dave Fothergill was my physiotherapist for all of the rehabilitation (on and off over 17 months) I had to go through and I can only say great things about him, Darren and the staff. It was vital the treatment and encouragement I received and it has helped me attain my goal of simply being able to walk dogs easily! Their knowledge and care is second to none. I would highly recommend Newcastle Physiotherapy to anyone. More...

Been now a few times to see Darren and he has always fixed my injuries. He’s very knowledgable. On my most recent visit for sore ankles he has somehow got rid of all my pain in one session and provided me with some great advise to reduce any further problems. All of the staff in reception are really nice. I would definitely recommend this place. 5 stars . More...

Thank you to Emma for her fantastic service. I had some anxiety over pain in my lower back, Emma listened to everything I was worrying about and her assessment and massage gave me complete peace of mind. She also gave me some suggested exercises to help me self manage my back ache. There was no pressure to come back at all but I would definitely come back if I needed to. I recommend this place completely. I was even greeted with a cup of tea on arrival by the lovely receptionist. More...

The FIT groups are great. I have always attended gyms but Smart Fitness pushes me so much further. The groups are lead by highly qualified coaches. As a Physio I know that they provide good safe advice and implement exercise that drives you to your limit without breaking you! I couldn’t recommend Smart Fitness highly enough. More...

My daughter Maggie loves her S&C sessions here! She is so impressed with the progress she's making and how her sessions are specific to her own sporting needs. It's not easy finding a professional fitness programme for children but Teleri and her team have provided her with the opportunity to encorporate this into her golfing life....golfers are athletes after all! Thanks for giving us exactly what we were looking for! More...

I was a member of Smart fitness for 2 and 1/2 years, attending their FIT group sessions. I’ve since moved and miss this gym so much. I’ve never felt as strong and fit as I did when I was training at Smart. All the coaches work hard to ensure each member of the group is suitably challenged whilst ensuring the sessions remain fun. I’m working on a way to be able to go back that doesn’t require me moving house! More...

I joined Smart Fitness for just under two years whilst studying at Newcastle University. In that time, I made a huge amount of progress which was all credit to Teleri, Nathan and Dani.

I needed a lot of help in recovering from a back injury which required a huge amount of dedication, commitment and expertise, all of which were provided to me and helped me drastically improve physically and led to me exceeding my original goals, including playing tennis and squash again. I needed to train 2/3 times a week and thoroughly enjoyed my time there as Teleri and the Smart Fitness team were all incredibly kind and helpful and always pushed me to my limit.

I am extremely grateful for all that they put into my training and I couldn’t recommend Smart Fitness enough to anyone!

Visited Darren in early February have injured my knee haphazardly training for my first Marathon. Darren helped me from the early stages of rehab, through a program of training and stretching, I genuinely don’t think I would have made the start line without his expert guidance. Completed the hottest London Marathon ever in 4 hours 22 minutes, not bad for a near 50 year old with 6 weeks (very focused) training, I cannot thank you enough, highly recommended – cheers Paul Hardingham More...

I have been attending this clinic for just over a year now and my physio Darren is excellent. I had been recommended to him by my son who has been attending the clinic for quite some time. I was thinking of changing my physio to look at different options and treatment but was not thinking of travelling to Newcastle as I am based in Durham! However I am so very pleased that I did. Darren listens and offers advice as well as expert physio treatment to suit my needs at the time. His manner is very calming and his knowledge is tremendous and I have never know any physio who can discuss my problems in such a detailed way without it going over my head! (and as I said previously I have visited various physio over the many years). So I feel very confident in his experience and appreciate his patience! I must make a shout out for the Receipt Staff as well, who are welcoming and very professional. Highly recommended - Angela Cowens More...
