I've been attending personal training sessions with Neil for approximately 5 years and although they're tough, I thoroughly enjoy them. All the Bourton Mill staff always made me feel very welcome and Neil is very supportive, a great motivator and really patient.
Whilst I've become stronger and fitter during the first 4 ½ years I didn't really significantly improve my physique until I finally followed Neil's advice: from the very beginning, Neil stressed that in order to see a real difference, I must also address my nutrition alongside the training. I have watched what I eat before, i.e. how many calories, but never really paid much attention to the macros. Then, in January 2019, Neil and I put together a nutrition plan and in just 6 months my physique has gone through a huge transformation.
I've now dropped 3 dress sizes and everybody comments on how good I look, which leaves me even more motivated to stick to this new life style.
Neil has been my trainer for 5 years now. Over that time Neil has tailored my sessions to meet my fitness level while ensuring that I’m always improving my strength, endurance and flexibility. Neil has also given me great advice on what I should or shouldn’t eat when I want to lose weight gradually while still having all the energy I need to workout up to 4-5 days a week.
In the last 6 months Neil has helped me lose 25 pounds while gaining strength in all areas. Neil is great at pushing me to my limits with quiet, determined encouragement. And when I hit my limits Neil is there immediately to support me so I can “max out” as I complete my exercise set. Neil varies my workout so I’m never doing the same thing all time but still repeating exercises often enough that I can gradually improve my technique.
I really look forward to my sessions with Neil as I can have a great, relaxing conversation with him while knowing he can read my energy levels and push me to new personal bests on a regular basis. No pain, no gain...and Neil makes it fun!
I have been training with Karen on and off since November last year. My goal was to feel fitter and healthier. Before training with Karen I felt really out of my depth in a gym. I wasn’t sure what to do or what machine to use. Karen has educated me in how to train in the gym. She always keeps my PT sessions unique, using different equipment, different exercises and pushes me to reach my potential. She is also a lot of fun which definitely helps at times! I would absolutely recommend the personal training to help you reach your goal and to gain more confidence in the gym. Karen has been great!
I have been having weekly personal training sessions with Karen for the past 18 months, I am 58 and have relapsing remitting Multiple Sclerosis. Karen has taught me how to run, I can now run 5k easily and do this 4 times per week. My overall fitness has improved ten fold , my coordination has been transformed, not only has Karen been my fitness mentor and inspiration, but she has become a lovely friend as well.
Karen is a dedicated fitness professional who is so passionate about what she does its infectious. She delivers fitness plans which are extremely effective and tailored to your needs. I have found her help highly beneficial, her plans are effective and your really can see results if you put the effort in! I would definitely recommend Karen, her knowledge around fitness and well being is impeccable. She makes exercising become addictive, which I never thought I would say!
I approached the Bourton Mill gym having seen a pop up advert for them on Facebook. Having had a hip replacement 15 months previous (my second) and needing a knee replacement I’d allowed myself to become overweight and very unfit. I rang, explaining my poor physical state and asking if they had someone there who could cope with someone with limited movement/unable to get up and down off the floor etc. Nicola replied that she felt she could help me.
At my introductory session she was keen to see “where I was” and what I might be able to do. We discussed my diet/lifestyle/goals etc and I came away feeling encouraged and motivated.
I have had several sessions with Nicola, now, every one of which has been varied with very little repetition (this means no dreading an exercise you may not have “enjoyed”!) and we work on all parts of the body always accompanied by that cry of “core strong”!
My goal was to lose weight, gain more movement in my knee, gain some cardio fitness and just generally feel fitter and better about myself. All those goals have been met and at the end of my 10 sessions, after just 5 weeks, I lost 5kgs, and I have continued to train with Nicola. My knee bends a little further and I have been on the rowing machine a few times (something I thought I would struggle to do ever again due to my reduced mobility in the hips and the unbending knee). My 500 metre time has come down by 25s.
I have enjoyed all my sessions. Nicola is very motivating in a quiet but commanding way and has found some great ways around my problems; always suggesting something new with “let’s just see how you get on with this” and then, if it’s caused my knee discomfort, finding a different exercise which exercises what she wants me to exercise but in a different way.
Approaching Bourton Mill gym has certainly changed me physically and mentally, too, leaving me feeling that I can do so much more than before. It was a good move.
I have been training with Nicola for about a year now. Nicola always does really good work – after each pt session I feel like I’ve gotten exactly what I need out of it and it always feels great. She’s very empathetic so knows what’s best in the moment. Her massages have saved my shoulders, I actually don’t know how people survive without them
