Massage with Sam
I had a recurring problem with my right knee.
Went along, and was a little apprehensive..
Yes, the massage was sore,

Sam immediately realised it was my thigh & calf that was the problem.

He's very calm & knowledgeable,explaining as he went.
fantastic result
Pain free knee!!
Would recommend him to anyone.

I will certainly be going back.

Sam has been my personal trainer for the last 9 months; we have been working together on resolving ongoing issues with my lower back and hip. Some of my problems were due to poor muscle tone, bad posture and a lack of understanding – despite many years of running. However, since working with Sam I have a much stronger core, i.e. I now have abs, a much improved upper body strength- (apparently runners do need this) and leg strength. Our sessions are always challenging and appropriate for the issue I am experiencing. As well as this, Sam keeps an eye on levels of pain and always manages to find alternatives or ways around it for me. I recommend training with Sam. More...

After reaching a point whereby I knew I had to make changes in order to get fit and lose weight (exercise was limited to doing the shopping and housework). I also wanted to break the cycle I had got into of endless yo yo diets, so after reading the amazing reviews I got in touch with Sam, and it is one of the best decisions I have made. Right from the start Sam has always been really supportive, knowledgeable and really comfortable to be around (very important to me as I had very low self confidence at the start, so finding someone who never judged, and understands was key). Sam started me on a nutrition plan, and we started on a 2 day per week exercise routine.Cut to a little over 4 months in with nearly 3st lost and 3 clothes sizes down, I am feeling more confident and now exercise most days, through walking, training with Sam, Pilates, and even starting on a couch to 5k programme (running was never ever going to be part of any exercise for me!). I still have a way to go, but with Sam's continued encouragement, I hope that the changes to diet and the complete change of exercise routines are changes for life. More...

I hate exercise, really hate it. But I reached a point where I had gained weight and knew I couldn’t shift it on my own, because I had tried every diet out there and while great for a quick fix the weight always ended up coming back. Sam is professional, he knows his stuff. He works me hard and I moan all the way through each session, but it has worked! I have lost a lot of weight, he did me a diet plan,which I have never once felt hungry on, and exercises to do at home as and when I can! I still hate exercise, but I do it because mentally and physically I have never felt so great! It has been a lifestyle change which I could not have done on my own. I really don’t live for food anymore, my mindset is different now and I eat to fuel my body not to fuel my emotions. I really really recommend Sam! More...

I got in touch with Sam because I wanted to get myself in a routine when it came to exercise. Sam has really helped to focus me and enjoy exercising. Even though I didn’t have a lot of weight to lose I did need to tone up. I lost 10cm on my waist and increase the size of my thighs, arms and chest. I’d happily recommend Sam to anyone wanting to see results - be prepared to be challenged! More...

I have been training with Sam for over 10 months and during this time my general health, fitness and life have improved dramatically. I was extremely overweight, could not walk 200yards without stopping due to pain and breathlessness, was a high concern with my GP as uncontrolled high blood pressure & cholesterol, was struggling to work etc etc. I had tried every diet in the book and my GP had even offered to pay for gastric banding! I had given up (and at 48 resolved myself to the hopeless bin).

Well that all turned around when I found Sam. I spoke to him first and was reassured by his calm yet confidant approach. The first session I had to have help tying my shoe laces and could not get up and down off the floor ! The journey has been hard but Sam is there encouraging and pushing me when I need it. I now have a completely different life everything is easier as my fitness levels are so much improved, I have lost weight and my GP is no longer worried about my BP and cholesterol as they are normal. Oh and as for getting up off the floor I can now cycle, run and feel I can do anything!

I still Sam At the beginning of March when Caroline and I decided enough was enough and we were going to start taking care of ourselves. The embarrassment of those first few sessions just showed me how unfit and overweight I was, but Sam was always positive and encouraging. He always manages to push you that little bit further when you think there is nothing left to give and always provides constant encouragement. Six months on and I look forward to the torture 3 - 4 times per week and for some reason always say thankyou when it is over. Sam has turned my life around and I have even voluntarily started running even on holiday. 5km is my current distance of choice. Something I thought I would never be capable of. I could not recommend Sam highly enough as he makes the pain certainly a gain every time. So far lost just over 3 stone with the will to lose more. More...

I got in touch with Sam at end of the summer, I had literally given up.
I had tried everything I could think of slimming world, weight watchers and ofc the slim shake diet and was still gaining weight.
I didn't know what to do, I was well and truly stuck in a rut.
Even tho I had a gym membership "which was hardly being used"
Well that's all starting to change now Sam came to the rescue, but it's not been easy and definitely got a longggg way to go, I'm starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel, which I haven't seen for the past 3-4 years.
Sam is more than a trainer he is there all the time for advice or a kick up the back side. He doesn't give up on you even if you've given up on yourself.
I am now excited for the changes ahead

I cannot praise Sam enough! We have been training since March this year twice a week and I first contacted him at the beginning of the year after deciding enough was enough, I had spent years trying fad diets and avoided exercise and my weight had been creeping on. I was very nervous at first and felt very embarrassed about training, but as soon as I met him I felt comfortable and was put at ease. I can honestly say I have never enjoyed exercise as much and i look forward to our training sessions, since meeting Sam my life has changed in so many ways, the journey has been hard but Sam has always encouraged me and pushed me to reach new goals and targets.

So far in my journey i have lost around 35lb and my fitness has massively improved, Sam has helped me turn my life around for the better, i feel so much more confident in myself, my fitness and my eating choices. Sam's support and guidance of what food's to eat has made such a huge difference.

I cannot praise him enough and would highly recommend him. Such an awesome, down to earth honest guy who pushes me more every session and has helped me put such positive changes into my life. I cannot thank him enough and look forward to the next set of goals.

Ok so for those who know me for me to involve anyone in my training usually is a big no no.. so having an online PT really was a massive step for me. I chose my online PT Sam because of two reasons I have seen his personal goals being achieved in becoming a Strongman and then the 180 change to a lean strong PT and it wasn’t done over night like a gimmick like you see on all the adverts. Anyway I spoke with Sam told him exactly what I wanted to achieve he tailored an online workout plan for me that is fab as it has video to show you how to do the work outs and also I had 3 different diet plans done for me to fit around Daily life,Half marathon training and marathon training. (Note buy Tupperware it will become your best friend) So 6weeks ago I weighed 13st 13 and currently I sit at 13st 3 so 10lb loss in weight which is great and my strength in the last 6 weeks has grown so so much, additionally I have also booked 3 PB in running and taking nearly 3 min of my half marathon distance run. I have also educated myself massively through the process by understanding what I am putting into my body and also why. I still have new goals I need to achieve and that’s why I am using Sam again in mid April for a further 6 weeks. If you are stuck in a rut need structure or just need to know where to start and need a helping hand the. Sam pardon the punt is your man. Five stars ⭐️ More...

(Derek's wife) I first started training with Sam when I was the heaviest I had ever been. I was always hungry, always tired, my skin was awful and the horrible pains in my stomach had me convinced there was something seriously wrong. I had absolutely zero motivation and knew I needed someone to force me into exercise, so I contacted Sam. I had seen the photos on his facebook of transformations, read the reviews, basically did my homework and I was impressed. I knew I needed someone serious about his own fitness to guide me and Sam is nothing if not that.

The first session I was very unfit (two minutes into the warm up and I was gasping for air) but I felt good afterwards. As requested, after a few sessions I happily had my husband take my pictures, I had lost about half a stone through the training and eating right and I was absolutely horrified at how I looked. Fast forward 10 weeks, training twice a week and doing a few of the sessions at home Sam has put together for me, along with an eating plan and the changes are dramatic. I've lost over 2 stone and am toning up.

Sam is always punctual and enthusiastic.The sessions are always different, always challenging. He finds what works for you to keep you going. Sometimes its encouragement, sometimes it's tough love. He works around me and my schedule that changes weekly. He keeps in contact between sessions which is a lovely touch. He remembers when my weigh in day is and is as enthusiastic as I am when I get a loss (every week). When my wrist was acting up he even appeared with some wrist supports.

With Sam you really do get more than a personal trainer. You get advice on eating, a tailor made workout to do at home, you get a coach who supports you and cheers you on and someone who doesn't mess about. You WILL get results and you WILL get compliments and you WILL learn to love pushing yourself. It's just what he does, and he is the best at it.

As I'm sure you can imagine, my stomach troubles have dissapeared. I
