As a competitive runner and triathlete I usually focus quite one or two sessions per week on strength work – in the past this usually meant dragging myself to the gym and force myself to do the same or similar reps week in, week out. Yawn.
That was until I discovered Mike’s Wednesday night (and Saturday morning) bootcamp! Everybody (whatever your level of fitness) is made to feel welcome at the sessions which are professional, well organised and there is always a little twist to make sure you are pushed to your limits. You leave the session feeling like you have had a full body strength, agility and cardio workout. It did not take very long before I started feeling and seeing the benefits in my body and performance.
Mike is also great at providing valuable advice on correct posture and technique for each of the exercises, and is always ready to lend an ear if anybody has any questions.
I no longer dread the facing the boredom of an hour in the gym, Mike’s sessions are a blast and something to really look forward to.

Since working with my personal trainer Mike, I have massively improved my upper body strength, core strength and cardio; and my overall fitness levels have increased dramatically.
Each session planned is tailored to my individual needs & Mike is constantly changing & adapting the programme to challenge, encourage & improve my fitness & lifestyle.
Mike is positive, enthusiastic & inspirational; who will push you to your absolute limit and make it possible for you to achieve your fitness goals.
He always helps you realise and reach your full potential in each training session, so that you feel you have accomplished your aim. I would recommend Mike as a personal trainer to anyone who is looking to lose weight, gain muscle, build body confidence and improve all over body fitness.

In 2010 my whole life changed, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After six months of intense chemotherapy and 20 days radiotherapy my fitness levels were at rock bottom.
For the following three years I found exercise and mobility difficult, but struggled on. Feeling very unfit, I was convinced that this was how I had been left from all the treatment I had previously received.
Mike has changed my outlook on life by showing me that exercise can overcome a negative state of mind, with a can do approach. I have never found the gym enticing, finding it boring. Mike works with me on a one to one basis pushing me to limits I did not know I could reach.
The results are, in six weeks with one hour per week sessions I have dropped two dress sizes, have become unrecognisably active as opposed to being a couch potato. If you recognise this as being you, please I urge you to make changes and contact mike as you really will benefit from the experience and feel very energised.

Before I started training with Mike I was overweight, conscious of my appearance and lacking confidence, I had never trained before or entered a gym.
Mike was recommended to me by a close friend who had been training with him. I thought, 'what have I got to lose', so I contacted Mike, explained my concerns and was asked to meet him for an informal chat.
Since then Mike has been training me on a one to one basis, I have lost weight, become fitter, my stamina has improved so I can go on walks that I never did before, but best of all my confidence has returned.
I am a better person than I was a year ago. I 100% recommend Mike and I am sure that he can do for you what he did for me.
