I can't recommend Gavin at 3Fs personal training highly enough. He worked with us from the very outset, differentiating our plans to accommodate our modest fitness in the beginning, encouraging us over the 12 week period to reach our goals. His sense of humour and music tastes only served to make the process more fun! He's fab, a great personal trainer and a truly nice guy. We're gutted he's moved to Spain but delighted for him. You can't go wrong! More...

I used a 10 session block to kickstart me back into exercise having been knocked off my usual routine by the pandemic. Having a regular weekly time in the diary really helped me get my mind back into exercise and healthy eating. I lost around 5kg of lockdown weight over the course of our sessions which I was really happy with. Gav was great to work with and created a relaxed, friendly environment whilst ensuring sessions were challenging and motivating. I would recommend for anyone looking to get back into the swing of things! More...

Although I do a lot of running, my GP advised me that "at your age" you should also be doing some strength and resistance work.

I was looking for a PT that worked with me, not against me, and as no longer a youngster I did not want some sort of 'boot camp'. I have held a weekly session with Gav for the past six months and have seen visible improvements in tone and muscle but perhaps more importantly an increase in my energy levels.

Shifting half a tone of compost at my allotment in one morning recently was completed without feeling exhausted either during or afterwards.

My sessions with Gavin are hard work (that's what I expect) but done in a constructive and gently encouraging way that focusses as much on form and technique as well as actual weights shifted.

I am very satisfied with what Gavin has helped me achieve so far.

Gav is thoroughly professional and experienced, providing tailored and well structured and timed training sessions. Had to train over Zoom but again well organised and didn't detract from the session.

Gav specialises in training for the over 50's, I would recommend him absolutely.

I find Gavin very professional his continual commentary very helpful as you can concentrate on the exercise rather than looking at the screen. I have been doing the sessions for five weeks and can see a marked inprovement already in my body tone. More...

Gav’s training sessions are pitched perfectly for us. My wife and I aren’t the most natural or enthusiastic exercisers but we knew we needed to get into a better, healthier routine, motivated by someone who would push us without getting all sergeant-major-like. We also wanted the sessions to be fun, a weekly date in our diary that we’d actually look forward to – and, yes, they genuinely are.
Our training programme has been carefully devised to suit our personal needs – taking into account our ages, our lifestyles, our fitness levels, our goals, any injuries etc. It's a long way from the one-size-fits-all approach you often encounter elsewhere.
If you're looking to shape up (particularly if, like us, you're in a somewhat more, erm, senior age bracket), we can’t imagine a better motivator.
We've been with Gav now for the best part of a year and feel fitter and more energised than we’ve felt in ages.

Highly recommend....Gav has helped me over the last couple of months to become fitter and eat healthier. I'm 61 and feel that I'm in better shape now than when I was in my 30’s! ! I have changed my lifestyle and am overjoyed with the new fitter me. More...

The training is excellent. I have never done a zoom class before but would recommend Gav's. The notification comes 30 mins before so plenty of time to sort yourself out. A recording is sent either the same day or the next day allowing you to catch up, if you've missed a session, or do an extra session if you want to!! Each exercise is clearly explained and often there are a number of alternatives catering for individual's ability. I have tried following videos in the past but usually give up before the end. Having Gav leading the session helps keep me going to the end.
Gav telephones you before you start the course to discuss it and offers nutritional advice. He also publishes articles on his website.
What I particularly like is he never tries to sell you anything other than the next session. These are Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 2pm.
Highly recommend. Thank you Gav.

It has changed my life, I'm 66 and fitter than I've been in a long time, the classes are enjoyable and work, I live in a second story flat and some days found it hard to get up the stairs, now I find it easier, even carrying my shopping up isn't a chore any more, I'm going out for longer walks with out getting tired. Gavin is an amazing trainer and would recommend him to anyone who wants to feel better in them selves and get fit, I've lost weight and inches. Go for it 👍 More...

I have been participating in Gavin's online 3x a week HIIT classes for about 9 weeks now and I can't believe how much fitter and leaner I feel. All my back aches and knee twinges have also disappeared! Gavin is absolutely great, he varies the routines and explains modifications to the exercises so you never feel like you can't do something. He is also upbeat and very personable so it is a pleasure to spend time with him. I would thoroughly recommend Gavin as an experienced and empathetic personal trainer who understands the challenges of trying to get fit in your 60's and knows when its a good idea to push you that bit further and when to let you work at your own pace. Thanks very much, Gavin - you are an absolute star! More...

Completed six week online HIIT programme designed for people 60+. Found it very motivational and has helped me improve my lifestyle and boosted both my physical and mental fitness. I’m feeling great.

I have rated 3Fs Personal Training highly since Gav's presentation, patience , preparation and follow-up are excellent. The pace and scope of each session have been tailored to meet the demands and challenges of us senior members of society. Gav explains the safe approach to each exercise and provides various options to successfully tackle it; these range from the less taxing to the more strenuous. I have now been attending his free tri-weekly session for 10 weeks now and the benefits, both mentally and physically, have been beyond my expectations. Each class is delivered at the right pace. Every session commences with a warm-up and is closed by a cool down in order to avoid injury and muscle soreness. In addition, each session is recorded and sent via email to you should you wish to repeat the session. This recording is just of Gav demonstrating each exercise so there's no need to feel self-conscious about you being recorded. If you have never tried a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) session then I highly recommend you give these training session a go and come and join us. These sessions are fun and aimed at maintaining your mobility , flexibility and aerobic capacity as we move into the next chapter of our life. More...

I have found the experience quite surprising considering my age (74yrs). Only wish I had started something like this years ago. Gav’s routines for me have been just right, I certainly feel more energised. More...

I have enjoyed personal coaching sessions with Gav both in person and online for the past 2 years. I have always found Gav to be highly professional, caring and supportive to meet my personal training goals. Gav is highly motivational, keeping the sessions varied whilst delivering the results and health benefits. I would highly recommend Gav and his approach to personal training. More...

And thank you! Andy Briggs 58 (becoming a young 58) More...

I have been working with Gav twice a week since last June as a way to rehabilitate form long Covid - and 20 years commuting ! I originally signed up for three months but find he is supporting me to turn my whole life around in a way that's really valuable to me and have no intention of stopping now. He is kind, dedicated and committed to my wellbeing and Im learning to be the same ! More...

I have been working with Gav for over a year and this has been predominantly online. He has been amazing to work with - I was a novice and he’s gradually built up my strength and appetite for exercise. I have lost over 1.5 stone and feel great in myself - sleeping better and less stressed. He’s approachable, great company and he knows when to go easy with me or push me a bit further. I can’t recommend him highly enough. More...

Very impressed so far, have had 4 sessions with Gav and he is very good and has set programmes to suit my needs! He is very encouraging and am enjoying getting fitter and feel motivated from the first session! So far so good!!!

Q&As

I start by investing in a complimentary 1 hours health and fitness consultation to understand your current level of health and fitness. I then take time to understand your goals; weight loss, tone and cardio fitness, increase muscle mass, beach body fitness, special event such as your wedding day. I will then beginning the process of designing a bespoke training programme, that will set some SMART goals. SMART simple means; S - Specific, M - Measurable, A - Achieveable, R - Realistic, T - Timeframed.

Me putting 100% effort into each and every session, you doing the same.

Seeing the transformation as clients achieve their goals, that go beyond fitness.

My lifetime passion for keeping fit, led me naturally to retraining for this career, gaining a Level 3 Diploma in Gym Instructing and Personal Training at YMCAfit in London. I love sharing the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle. There is no greater reward than seeing each of my clients moving forward and achieving their individual goals.

At 53, I'm an older trainer with old-fashioned communication skills combined with cutting edge personal training expertise. My focus will be on you, and only you throughout your session. Here are recent client testimonials:

Gav is fab!
Gav is an excellent motivating and positive personal trainer...he helped me completely reverse my diabetes and that is no small feat as I was a doctor dreading the onset of the disease. Your goal becomes his goal and I cannot recommend him enough
Rageni Sangha, Brighton

Gav is a great trainer!
I had 3 or 4 injuries that had been preventing me from doing too much at all. Gav was very thorough and spoke with my physio before he would work with me so that he knew exactly what he was dealing with. We then started slowly and cautiously and it wasn't long before my confidence and my strength were growing. I was struggling to feel motivated and thought what might make it worse was if someone came and started shouting at me (like some reality TV trainer). However, Gav is extremely encouraging, motivating and helpful without needing to do that! He brings a fresh workout sheet each week and leaves me with a post workout feedback sheet to keep a check on injuries. I highly recommend him!
Sue Prince, Rottingdean

Best way to keep fit
Gav offers an excellent personal training service. He's professional and very knowledgeable. The sessions are well thought out and enjoyable. He has a lovely manner and is very patient explaining everything fully. I highly recommend him.

Gavin is absolutely brilliant
Gavin is absolutely brilliant. He really knows what he’s doing and has been central to my return to fitness. It had been a long while since I had done any formal exercise and he built a programme that reflected that. He is incredibly knowledgeable but makes it all accessible. I like the variety in the sessions - we mix things up with different pieces of equipment and changes in emphasis. And he’s a genuine and very pleasant person to be with. I wholeheartedly recommend him.
Jo Redfern, Brighton

Personal Training at its best
Gav’s passion and enthusiasm for personal training is infectious!
Gav takes his time to get to know you and your goals and then puts his experience and expertise into action to enable you to achieve your results. Each session is different, with Gav tailoring your individual programme to suit your specific needs. I would not hesitate in recommending Gav for both face to face and remote personal training. He provides a bespoke programme to motivate and enable you to achieve your goals, walking every step of the journey with you .... quite literally!
Heath Scott, Brighton

Excellent PT and great motivator.
Have been training with Gavin now just for a year and recently through Covid 19 lockdown have been doing remote training via What’s app, Gavin is very positive and he is so encouraging and adapts the training to you and your needs! He has a different session each time and I feel motivated and positive after each session! He is calm and patient and you get encouragement throughout each session! Highly recommend Gavin as a PT and cannot be more positive about the training I have and continue to have.
S Clarke, Peacehaven
