After so long of hating the way I look, not being able to fit in my clothes and trying every fad diet going, I put out a public plea for help and Viv responded.
She has created a tailored program which has helped me start feeling so much better about myself. I have so much more energy and have started being able to fit back into some of my old clothes.
Viv is not just a personal trainer, she becomes your own personal cheerleader too... The support she gives is incredible and is always there if you have any questions or are struggling with anything.
I am excited to continue working with her and finally get the body I want.

Viv is so easy to talk to and listens, honestly listens! She produces workouts around you, your lifestyle and any equipment you may have whilst also tailoring the plan to your goals. I never feel like a “cut and paste”. Viv has also helped with my nutrition to the point I have leaned out whilst gaining muscle and still full of energy. One of the best points is you never feel like a bother when messaging and she will always answer. Totally a great find. More...

I’ve been having PT with Viv for over a year now, but have known and trained with her for many years. She is so enthusiastic and supports whatever I’m working towards. Pushes me when I need it and really listens and reacts if I’m fatigued etc. Viv’s not only helped me on my training goals but also a great friend and listens through the tough times. Feel completely supported by her and whenever I message her, she always responds quickly with whatever I need etc. Love my sessions, both in person and virtual in the current climate. Would not hesitate in recommending Viv to anyone More...

Viv has been my trainer for a few years now, and has totally transformed my body and my physical performance. I came to her feeling very shy but with a desire to learn how to lift weights, fast forward a few years and I’ve lost dress sizes, a whole load of fat, gained muscle and confidence and even competed in a fitness competition.
Training is always tailored, she is receptive to your goals and structures her programmes to best help you meet them. I cannot recommend her enough.

I started training with Viv a few weeks before lockdown in face-to-face sessions in the gym, and boy did she work me hard! Pushed me to my limits whilst working round a back injury which kept flaring up. During lockdown, her training plans have kept me going and active, and a weekly online training session has kept me very much on track. My fitness has improved hugely, as has my strength, and I'm finally losing the dad bod. Do I come out of her sessions peppy and full of energy? No, I can barely stand and am dripping with sweat - but that's the point, isn't it?! Throughout the week, we keep in touch via messages, and she's always there to answer any questions about technique or things I'm finding tough. Highly recommend Viv - she has changed my mindset and my body tremendously over the last four months. More...

Looking for a personal trainer can be a challenge. You just think you’ve found one and then something just isn’t right for you.

When I saw Viv’s profile I was excited because she seemed like she had experience of building fitness and losing weight and was able to advise on nutrition. Nutritional advice was important to me as I had been struggling to balance losing weight and having enough energy for the workouts I had been trying to do myself.

I laugh now because our first couple of chats involved me reeling off all my past injuries (so many!) and where I still had pain. With viv’s help I have been able to get stronger and change my body shape in line with my goals.

It hasn’t been easy and I still have work to do but Viv has been so supportive through my ups and downs and has been able to adapt my routine to fit what I am able to do.

I would definitely recommend giving Viv a call, you won’t be sorry. There are times I still find difficult but Viv is always supportive and understanding and is always able to make me laugh. The more you put in the more you will get out of it and the results are there for the taking of you are willing to work hard.

Viv is a super PT, she is passionate for you to reach your goals and get the results you’ve longed for. She is your biggest supporter & her workouts are challenging as well as exciting and bespoke to you. I am loving my fitness journey with Viv! More...

Viv is a bundle of energy who always helps me to stay motivated and makes sessions fun. She understands my goals and what makes me tick and ensures I am always moving out of my comfort zone as I progress. Excellent Pt with a great understanding of people. More...

I've been training with Viv for a few years. I have built up good muscle strength & tone. I'm much stronger plus I'm in my late 50"s but still able to do all exercises because Viv explains them really well teaches them at your pace. She'll make it easier, then once you understand what to do then makes it harder but within limits. I've never hurt myself doing Viv's workouts. She's great fun! We always have a laugh no matter how tired I am!
Definitely feels like training with a friend!!

When the York Puregym first opened I thought it was up there with all the other ones in terms of equipment and set up, however it doesn't feel like it's aged well. I would suggest more refreshing would bring it back into line with the other ones. Amending previous review up from 3 to 4 as it still has a decent range of equipment. Just needs a bit of smartening up IMHO. More...

Yes, sure. I will add it now: So, between the time I usually go (18-20), the gym is extremely busy and I need to wait in order to have a bit of work out. I am aware this does not depend on you...but maybe, buying additional equipment may help. The parking is extremely full. Especially after B&M parking has been closed due to the fire. Moreover, I got my car damaged once.... The changing room is very cold! During the winter I can't benefit from it. Moreover, the new showers are just very uncomfortable. The water keeps switched off every 30 seconds and the very little of water comes out due to the poor shower head. Need to cancel my subscription, unfortunately. I think it may worthy to pay more and be able to enjoy a little bit more my work out. More...

The gym is great for its price but unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a cap on the number of members they will accept. At peak times, you can find yourself waiting for groups of people to use machines at once. This means lots of people are standing around. Perhaps they need to have a second floor of equipment (?)However, the classes and personal trainers are great and being open 24 hours gives so much more flexibility. More...

Left Bannatynes to try Pure and the place is a disaster. Free weights are left everywhere. Asked staff if they would tidy up and they couldn’t care at all. Making me do their job just so someone wouldn’t get hurt! Members using barbells without weight guards on a weekend meaning the weight can just fall off and potentially on to someone’s foot! No moderating whatsoever! Disgusted in the upkeep and fully regret coming here. I’ll probably take the hit and go back to Bannatynes if the extra £10 just means I’m paying for a maintained and safe gym! Take photos of the heavier ones I’m in no way risking my safety tidying for the staff! More...

Been going since it opened. Price is great. There's often a few bits of kit out of order and the rope pulling machine has disappeared completely which was one of my regular exercise items.

I tend not to go at peak times so it's not usually too busy and you can usually get onto the kit you want.

It's ALWAYS too cold though. I've overheard a few people saying the same. I know we warm up during exercise but I think they could done down the air-con a bit. And conversely the (men's) showers can be very hot. That's been a bit of a problem since opening.

Having said all this is still recommend it. It's always open, well priced and they have lots of kit.

Let down by general maintenance, for the past two months the toilet cubicle door has not had a lock on the door, lockers need replacing/fixing also barbell clips are scarce also there's not a single foam roller in the building.
The issues would seem straight forward and cheap but have not been sorted

Q&As

I provide training programmes according to the clients’ goals, needs, available time, equipment, space and current ability! I give them nutrition advice and guidance as well as being constantly available for support via message on most platforms whenever needed.

Consistancy! Doing something, no matter how small, on a regular basis is better than doing nothing!

Helping people to achieve their goals! The messages I receive from clients telling me how they’ve been able to fit into an outfit they’ve not worn for ages, telling me about how they can now walk up the stairs without getting out of breath, or they can play wirh their kids without getting over tired; thats what i do my job for! I share in your joys as well as your hardships, and it makes my heart sing to see you guys so happy!

A very well timed redundancy 8 years ago! I used to be a Pension Administrator, I’d joined the gym and lost over 4 stone! We got given 12 months notice of our impending redundancy and all I felt was joy! Finally! I could spend my days helping to make people feel as good as i did!

I have over 8 years of experience of helping people to lose weight (up to and over 10 stone), tone up, build their strength and confidence, run half marathons, enter (and reach the finals of) crossfit competions, put their T2 diabetes on hold, show their children a healthy and active lifestyle, feel amazing on their wedding days and in their beachwear and simply be able to walk up their stairs without getting breathless! No matter what your goal is, I can help, and if I can’t, I’ll be sure to refer you to someone more appropriate/better qualified!
