jane before and after

After trying and failing several times to try and lose some of the 3 stone that I gained in under a year, I joined Abbey Mill Fitness Club just 5 months ago and took up the Unlimited Personal Training Program with Stephen. What a difference this has made to me. Stephen pushes my own boundaries all the time and what I love is that he makes me compete with myself by keeping track of all my stats and gives me targets to head for. (I love a bit of number crunching!)

The variety of one to one and group PT sessions really mixes things up so workouts are certainly never boring and you get to meet other people striving for the same goals as you (and breathing just as heavy as you)  – I work shifts and also have a long commute, but the flexibility of the PT sessions always accommodates my needs which is great.

During a tough year I had lost my mojo for running and tried several times and failed to get it back, but I joined the runners in the Run Club and thanks to them and the training with Stephen, my mojo has gladly returned and I am now training for Stirling Marathon in May.

I cannot express how friendly and encouraging the run club members are and coming from someone who described herself as a “lone runner/trainer” I now love to run with other people and look forward to the run sessions whenever I can make them.

I have been a member of a few gyms and had PT sessions from various PT’s and although all were good, I have to say that this gym with it’s combined PT from Stephen, Run Club, general gym and most important of all the people that attend is the best I’ve been to.

In the 5 months I have been there I have dropped 2 stone, 3 dress sizes and lots of inches all over. My fitness is vastly improved and I’m continuing to push myself and exceed my own targets. This wouldn’t have been done without the help of Stephen’s encouragement and the goals he sets for me.

If anyone is looking to improve their fitness, their health and feel better within themselves then this is definitely the place to be.

The results speak for themselves.
