"We have been training with Rob for a number of years. He is helpful, encouraging, trustworthy and very reliable. When we started I had done no exercise for years and was very unfit. For the first few months we trained in my garage as I had not got the confidence to go out. Fast forward to today and we run regularly outside and my fitness and stamina have improved immensely. All down to the gentle coaxing and encouragement shown by Rob. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob no matter what your fitness levels are."

I have been training with Rob for 11 years now. My goals were not to lose weight but to have a healthy body. And today I do. He routinely switches my programme to maintain my enthusiasm and motivation. In that time, we have either been running, cycling, weight training, rowing or doing pilates-based exercises. We have trained outdoors and indoors. When I have had health issues my training has been adapted to allow for it. There hasn’t been a time where anything was too much trouble.

He tunes in to your health and fitness requirements and works diligently with you to achieve those needs. He inspires confidence in how to attain them. If a recommendation is required, then I couldn’t rate Rob highly enough.

“I signed up with Rob in September of last year after feeling very unfit and lethargic. I was terrified about starting to exercise again but Rob was fantastic and very understanding, he came to my house for our first few sessions as I was extremely anxious and nervous about exercising in public spaces. We now meet in the park as my confidence and fitness has improved dramatically.

Rob has taught me the importance of consistency with exercise, and how something is always better than nothing..

I would highly recommend Rob as a trainer, he is very supportive and extremely reliable."

“We enlisted the help of Rob some three years ago now and we have tried to meet with him three times per week subsequently. We cannot speak too highly of Rob, who as a professional young man:

• Has a thorough understanding of personal fitness regimes
• Understands the workings of the human body in conjunction with his job
• Has stretched us to the limit but not so as to feel uncomfortable
• Has a subtle and friendly attitude that has enabled us to continually improve our fitness performance as time elapses

On a general basis, the following points have also proven to be important to us:
• Rob has always been flexible as to the time when he can see us
• Never on one single occasion has he been late for an appointment
• Never on one single occasion has he had to cancel an appointment
• He has been most understanding when the reverse has applied due to unforeseen business commitments at very short notice

Rob would come with a strong recommendation in every respect on both a professional and personal basis. We are sure that any client will enjoy their sessions with him and feel much better for them."

“As an ‘over-40s unfit person’ I was unsure about personal trainers. However, I found Rob to be a brilliant coach and an effective encourager. I had never run for more than three minutes in my entire life, but less than three weeks later, Rob had me running two miles! I am three stone lighter and fitter than I have ever been – a new lease of life! Thanks Rob – you are worth every penny and more!”

“I started training with Rob in Oct 2011 as I was in a rut. I had a long term knee injury which physio hadn’t resolved. Having previously completed triathlons at a good level of fitness I was fed up with only being able to run for 15 mins before my knee stopped me. I also knew that I don’t possess the personal motivation to do the training I needed to overcome the injury. I have never used a personal trainer before and had a reasonably healthy skepticism but had also run out of ideas.

I trained twice a week with Rob in our local park and we focused on strengthening the muscles around my knee and generally building up my fitness. In June 2012 I competed injury free in the Great Midlands fun run and ran 8.5 miles in 64 minutes which is further and significantly faster than I have ever run before. I am very proud of this achievement. There were setbacks along the way and days and weeks where I couldn’t do much running from the knee pain. Rob adapted as required and we did something else or turned back if the knee started playing up on a run.

One of the key things I learned training with Rob is work around the injuries that you have. Rather than stop training train differently. Rob is very friendly, his coaching style is amiable and not pushy. He makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. Rob has a lot of experience which he modestly puts to good use for his clients. I would thoroughly recommend him.”

“With the help of Rob over the last six months I have managed to achieve my objectives of losing weight and generally getting fitter. Not only has Rob guided and motivated me during weekly exercising sessions he has also given me advice and guidance regarding other exercise to undertake when he is not present and with regard to other aspects of life, which affect health and fitness levels. Rob’s overall manner is one of consideration, offering encouragement when needed, adjusting the content of sessions as required and always pushing to gain the most benefit, but in an understanding way.

I have not regretted working with Rob and would gladly do so again in the future.”

“I’ve been training with Rob for some time now and would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone thinking of working with him.
He’s happy to train at any pace and his down-to-earth manner means that the sessions are structured in a friendly and encouraging way. His commitment is impressive and he can often fit appointments around my work and other responsibilities even if that means an early start in the morning! So, even if you are a beginner, as I was, Rob will make sure you become fitter, as I definitely am now! And what’s more, I enjoy my training sessions!!”

“I have been training with Rob for over a year now and during this time he has helped me achieve my goals of losing weight and toning up. I lack motivation and would not go to the gym at all on my own, but Rob’s relaxed style of encouragement has motivated me to train three times a week and achieve a level of fitness I never though possible. Rob is always on time and has never cancelled an appointment. He also gets the best from me every session, even when I least feel like it. Training with Rob would come with a strong recommendation. He gets results, is fun to train with and offers excellent value for money.”

“Couldn’t run 100yds but with Rob’s patience, persistence and encouragement I ran a half-marathon the day before my 40th birthday!! Have done another couple since too!! And I never believed I would ever achieve anything like that!

He listens to me whinge, complain and rant about a hill (a slope!), a twinge, my breathing and he always positively works through it and soon enough you’re up the hill, the pain has gone and your lungs are still working!!

I asked for Rob’s help after my child started school because I wanted to become fit and I still go running with him every week after 5 years!! Even now he still pushes me to the edge of my comfort zone in order for me to achieve my goals. Let Rob be your trainer! He’s the best! You’ll be amazed how much you will achieve without even realising it!!.”

“When I first met Rob I was overweight and lacked motivation. I’d decided on a personal trainer to kick start a weight loss and fitness programme and chose Rob for his easy going likeable personality and the fact that he came to my house rather than meet at a gym, (I have been a member of a gym for 4 years and am amongst the majority that just do not go! Together with most of the PT’s I called insisted on meeting me at a gym – waste of time for me as a gym member I never wanted to go there, so home based was what I wanted). We decided on a programme that included getting me running (for the first time in a long time) to assist with fitness/weight loss and free weights for toning. I must admit the training was hard at first and I often thought my lungs would burst and that this whole thing was a mistake, but through Rob’s patience, dedication, enthusiasm and encouragement I am now running 3 or 4 times a week plus toning with the dreaded weights and loving every minute. I could sing Rob’s praises for paragraphs, but bottom line – would I recommend a personal trainer to anyone for any training regime – be it like me, a complete novice aiming to lose weight and get fit or an enthusiast training for a marathon? – yes I would. Would I recommend Rob? – only 110% – Fantastic! Rob – I cannot thank you enough for the “new me” – your patience (in abundance) and the fact I haven’t a clue what is going on in Eastenders (as I am out running) is the best reward. As you can imagine – you are a star!”

“When I first contacted Rob I was struggling with being overweight and sluggish after a long period of stressful study and setting up in my own business. I was frustrated that I was not fit and had been considering learning to run aged 47! I remember thinking that there was no way that I was ever going to be able to run a mile, yet within 4 weeks thanks to Rob’s guidance and encouragement, I was. Rob is an excellent coach, he is motivational, evidence based and oozes experience. I have now been running for just over 3 years and have completed several 5k and 10k runs and I have run in the Cardiff 5 mile. Rob has always understood my needs and is very person centred in his approach. I feel confident knowing Rob is there. We have run in the spring in the rain, in the summer sun, in the autumn and in the winter in sometimes deep snow which has taught me that it is possible to enjoy running in any season.

Recently after a period of illness and putting weight back on, Rob helped me regain focus and find my mojo again. He has helped me through physical challenges and injuries. Rob has been and continues to be flexible with meeting me both early morning and later in the evening, he is also very accommodating when my work takes me away at short notice.
Always on time, totally reliant and has a smile for you .

I have no hesitation in recommending Rob and providing a testimonial so as to share what an absolutely great personal trainer Rob is.

Many thanks to you for being there.”

“I have been having personal training sessions with Rob on and off for the last 12 months. I have found them invaluable and that my fitness levels have, without doubt, increased. I have received great guidance and encouragement, and have found that Rob pitched me at the right level for me to progress and feel encouraged about my results. I would definitely recommend Rob, and consider the training I received as good value for money.”
