I've had an amazing journey with BPT. I started in Jan 2019 on a three month introduction offer and ended up staying on for the rest of the year. I've never enjoyed gym environments, feeling intimidated and not knowing what to do always put me off. However mike's sessions are in small groups with like-minded people that support you no matter where you are in your fitness journey. I've never done any weights before and Mike's sessions introduce you to this at a progressive pace (which is totally addictive as you see so much progress ). I'm quite into cycling and I found using weights so complimentary to my cycling which I wasn't expecting ! I would recommend BPT to anyone looking for an alternative option to a conventional gym. Thanks Mike and the Team x More...

Started with BPT over a year ago and can honestly say it is one of the best things I ever did. Not only am I physically fitter but mentally to. Mike and his team care about you and become more friends than trainers. It’s this personal touch that makes it such an excellent experience. More...

I can't thank Mike enough for his amazing work prepping me for my wedding. As someone who has never particularly enjoyed working out, I was dreading trying to get in shape. Mike made the whole experience awesome (and dare I say good fun!!). I got so many compliments on my wedding day and it's entirely down to the hard work Mike put in. A MASSIVE thankyou!! More...

I am one of those people who has never been sporty or into fitness. Going to a regular gym never worked for me as I didn’t really know what I was doing, didn’t get the results I wanted and I felt intimidated by all the people there. Working with Mike for the last 5 months has been perfect for me. I’ve lost 10cm off my waist and my body fat % has dropped from 30 to 23. Getting in shape was the goal when I started, but now I’m enjoying training, pushing myself to lift heavy weights, have improved balance and feel so much better in myself. Could not recommend this place enough. More...

I had the pleasure of working with Mike for a little while and experienced first hand his passion, skill and knowledge. He's generous in sharing all of this and I couldn't recommend him more. It's refreshing in this day and age to see a personal trainer who cares more about the quality of information shared than to post pseudo motivating pictures without a top on. More...

I've been training with Mike for over a year and can't praise his skills enough, for a long time I was suffering from back pain and within a few months he got me into shape and taught me some valuable tricks to stop my back issues returning. There is not much he doesn't know regarding fitness and health, he is also a genuinely great guy, would thoroughly recommend him and The Physical Preparation Studio to anyone wanting to get fit or simply get in the right way with their health.

Not only that, he trained my parents for a long time and they absolutely loved his sessions! Mike is great and certainly knows his stuff! More...

Following a personal recommendation, I took Mike’s 8 week course, after he assured me he could
mostly fix my knees which have pointed inwards for decades, well longer than I can remember (which is a long time). After a couple of sessions he upgraded his assessment and said we could get them all the way. The use of WE in the previous sentence, is deliberate Mike shows you the way but YOU need to do the ‘homework’ he gives you, it’s not much, under 10 minutes twice a day and you don’t need any special equipment, I only had to buy a child’s ball £1.99 which most people would probably have lying around the house anyway. During the 8 weeks Mike explained what we were doing and why, his knowledge of how all the parts of the body are connected is extensive. All through he was supportive and encouraging without being overbearing.The cost for me was something I had to think twice about, but after 3 or 4 weeks I wish I’d done this years ago, it was well worth the cost. After 6 weeks the ski instructor at @snowtraxuk commented on how much my skiing had improved, which was the main reason for seeing Mike. More...

Mike knows his stuff. The development in knowledge of exercise physiology and nutrition since I studied Sports Science has been huge and Mike's knowledge and ability to apply it in a bespoke and prescribed manner is incredible. There is no denying it he is getting consistent and honest results well above normal expectations. More...

I had sufferred with pain and discomfort in my neck and hip for well over 10 years and I had tried virtually every kind of therapy. From chiropractics to accupuncturists and several physiotherapists along the way, it was always the same cycle of 30 minutes treatment followed by short term pain relief, followed by another treatment 3 weeks later. So, as you can imagine, I was more than a little sceptical when Mike told me he could get me pain free within 6 to 8 weeks! 8 weeks later, I now have good posture and I am virtually pain free. I have also acquired all the tools I need to keep me pain free for life. Each session with Mike lasts 90 minutes on a weekly basis, along with "homework" exercises during the week. So be prepared for some fairly intense work. There are no gimmicks or miracle cures involved in this treatment. Mike works on muscle imbalances throughout your whole body and prepares sets of exercises which develop as you progress. You take a video recording of each exercise, to play back at home. These videos are invaluable as each exercise is tailored to your personal needs. From my first meeting with Mike it was clear to me that he was an anatomy "genius". Combine this with the enthusiasm he has for what he does and a passion for achieving your pain free goals with you, I could not give Mike any higher recommendation. More...

I came to Mike suffering with a bad back that I'd put up with for several months. I'd been wearing orthotics for four years to help me when I'm on my feet all day at work. I have to confess that his massage treatment was occasionally very painful but the relief that followed made it worth the agony! I was given exercises to do at home between sessions to get my muscles working properly and in six weeks I'm pain free, out of my orthotics and feeling in great shape now, so much so that I've been able to increase my exercise regime! Thank you for helping me even if you made me suffer while doing it! More...

I have SO much love for this company! Mike has helped me a couple of times over the last 2 years. Firstly for 8 weeks 2 years ago to flatten my stomach and build strength and now over the last 10 weeks to further reduce my body fat percentage, build on the definition and get even stronger. Mike is SO patient, knowledgable and encouraging- there's absolutely no doubt that he knows what he's talking about �. I wouldn't go anywhere else, purely because with Mike there's no pretentiousness or any of that rubbish; you'll get a program, tailored to you and if you put the work in you'll get incredible results. Simple. �� More...

I started seeing Mike to help with an injury as I was training for a marathon but ever since then I've been seeing him 2-3 times a week for about 4 years now and have managed to run yet another marathon since. He sat me down asking me what I want to achieve and writes a program to help me. Since then I have become a lot stronger and got a few PBs under my belt in bench press, weighted squats and deadlift, it's just a shame that I have to move away but will still be keeping fit with videos that Mike is sending me with exercises and techniques to help me. � thank you Mike.

I’ve been trying to lose weight for the past 3 years and I couldn’t get any results, but for the past 4 months, I’ve been getting my ass kicked by Mike and the results exceeded all my expectations. Mike really knows what he’s doing, he is incredible skilled, knowledgeable and fun. I’ve started to like doing exercises, learning new techniques and started to motivated myself to push even harder. Mike has an incredible eye for details (there is no way of cheating with him) and he constantly made me sweat which is worth it. More...

Q&As

It’s all about personal programming and having fun really. The best program is the one you can stick, and that really comes down to how much you enjoy it. That’s why we have our sessions take place in small groups around 4-6. You still have your own personal program but the group atmosphere is so much fun and you get an extra level of support you can’t get in a 1-2-1 session.

It’s fun and consistancy, it’s simple but it’s true. You could have the best training and nutrition program in the world, but if it’s not something you can follow, stick to and enjoy; it won’t work.

I love seeing the look on a people’s faces when they achieve something they never thought they would, and seeing people who previously ‘hated’ exercise have a great time in our sessions.

As cheesy as it sounds I love helping people, and the human body is fascinating. On top of that there is a huge amount of misinformation in the fitness and nutrition industries, that I really enjoy uncovering. It really is simple when you know what to do.

You’ll have fun and achieve more than you ever thought was possible. We take the time to learn what success really means to you and never make assumptions. I’m looking forward to meeting you and having some fun with your training.
