Before I met Nick, I was a huge fan of crappy fad diets and cardio was my best friend, I was a long distance runner and that was that. Since working with Nick, I’d say my diet has dramatically improved and I’m confident on the gym floor. I have fallen off the wagon with my diet a couple of times, but Nick has always been supportive and understanding. I have been given a few stern words now and then but they have always re-motivated me and got me back on track.
Being naive, I had always thought that weights were for men, and the thought of doing anything that involved them freaked me out. Nick taught me that being strong and healthy is far more important than being ‘skinny’. So I decided that if I was going to do this, I’d do it properly, I’d trust him whole heartedly and give everything 100%. His many years of experience within the industry and his fat loss expertise made it hard not to follow his plans with complete confidence.
I changed my diet, I started taking supplements, and I began to lift weights. The biggest change I saw was my confidence, I wasn’t scared to be in a gym and I certainly didn’t feel intimidated by anyone in, or out, of the gym anymore. There were visible differences in my body, the way it looked, how my clothes were fitting, how much more we could do every time I went to the gym. I had gone from struggling to lift 10kg to being able to deadlift 70kg with ease. I’m currently on the leader board for women for the 20kg Snatch Lift and we are working towards smashing the Squat Gold, which currently lies at 87.5kg.
The amount of time and effort Nick puts in to your programmes, diet/nutrition plans, and general well-being is astounding, and I doubt you’d get the same dedication or quality anywhere else. Whenever I text or e-mail with a question about a certain exercise or part of my diet plan, he always replies and goes above and beyond to give the information I need. After two self-inflicted injuries, he went out of his way to find as much information as he could on my condition to put my mind at ease and speed up my recovery in the healthiest, safest way.
Working with Nick is like working with a mentor or a friend. It never feels like a chore and the sessions we have are the best part of my week. That’s when I’m most motivated and push myself further because there is someone else there to celebrate my achievements with me. Although he is very professional, he makes an effort to get to know you as a person, which only adds to your success. He knows when you need the extra motivation, he knows what motivates you, how far you can push yourself, how far you’re willing to go to achieve the results you want, and how to keep you going when you feel like you want to quit. I’d say Nick is and will be as dedicated to your success as you are, if not more.
I have been training with Nick for a few years now on and off, although if it was up to Nick there would be no off.
Nick is the most motivated and driven trainer I know, I’m a hard person to get motivated but he kicks me into gear!
The dietary sheets Nick provides help me achieve my goals in a healthy manner. His knowledge of how the body works, along with how it reacts with a good diet is, to say the least, impressive!
Nick has created a tailor made program and diet sheet that works and fits in with my work commitments as well as my social ones. He also helps me keep motivated out of the gym with texts, Facebook and phone calls; it all helps, as I need that type of commitment.
I now have a friend training and dieting with Nick also, and he loves it just as much! I’d refer Nick time and time again.
In my mind I knew what I was doing. I was a keen runner and studied A level PE in 1994. What could anyone teach me?
I have known Nick for over 20 years but it was not until Jan 2013 that I decided to listen and take his advice. Because I had run and studied exercise I never thought there was much anyone could do for me. How wrong could I have been? I needed to lose a stone at least and despite my running could not shift it. Within a week of providing my current diet Nick had sorted a new diet and exercise plan to cut the fat. That is where the story started. I stuck to his plan to the letter and saw the visual results within a month.
I could not believe how my fitness had increased too with what seemed to me not much time spent on cardio! HIIT was the way forward. Nick continued to develop and manage my goals throughout the year with simple yet effective and easy to follow training plans. His knowledge of training plans and how diet and the body work to achieve results is second to none.
His flexibility to adapt training plans to what I have wanted is also a plus. In January 2013 I wanted to go back to running and tried my 1st 10k race for a few years. As a result of his training plan I managed 6-minute miling and finished in the top 100 of a 1000 strong field.
If you are in need of a switch and looking for some professional advice on weight loss or training plans then I cannot recommend Nick highly enough.
If you are committed about training and think you are achieving your best I would urge you to think again and consult Nick to take you a step or two further.
I’ve been training with Nick for a few months; already I would highly recommend him. His knowledge of the human body and physical fitness is amazing.
I have also had gout in my knee for the last four weeks and he has made sure I do everything the right way so i do not damage my knee further and to help me with my recovery.
He has been very helpful with my diet plan and explained the large range of vitamins and proteins available. We have discussed all of the options thoroughly and he has given me lots of advice on how to achieve my goals through personal training.
Thank-you for all your help and support.
I cannot recommend Nick enough. He got me fight ready in 8 weeks. He goes the extra mile. Very committed. Thanks nick
The last six months Nick has changed my whole outlook on training. I’m stronger more mobile and and have a better understanding of what I need to do to stay fit.
Been Personal Training now with Nick for 4 months. He gets results. His programmes are structured and variable to keep them fresh. He is reliable and is always willing to give dietary advice and home workouts as well. Highly recommended and I just wish I’d used him earlier. Don’t hesitate!
