Success Stories

I look forward to my sessions, and I’ve never said that about any exercise – ever!

“I struggled to lose the weight I’d put on when I had my son (about 5 stone) but at the end of 2018, I decided enough was enough. I wanted to be healthy and fit, and to set a good example for my son.

I had no reservations about trying Personal Training sessions at Fitness Works. I chose to come to Fitness Works, which is a short bus ride away, as opposed to the gym which is within walking distance from my home, because I knew I’d be in good hands.

I’ve been to every session since I started, which is a big thing for me. Usually, by this time, I would have started doing less and less sessions at a ‘normal’ gym, or I’d have even given up by now. I look forward to my sessions, and I’ve never said that about any exercise – ever!

I would 100% recommend Personal Training at Fitness Works. Normal gyms can be quite soulless places, whereas Fitness Works has a more ‘personal’ approach. I feel Kelly is invested in my health and fitness as much as I am, and she motivates me to work that little bit harder in a supportive and encouraging way.”

With the support from Kelly, the Healthy Eating Meal Planner, and the small group personal training, I have lost nearly 2 stone!

“Before joining Fitness Works, I did very little exercise. I had joined gyms in the past and went a few times, but then continued to pay without going. I felt uncomfortable asking for help on equipment so, when I did go, I would just stick to the equipment I knew how to use.

Before joining small group personal training, I was worried I would feel self-conscious with there only being six in a group – so not a lot of people to hide behind! I was worried I wouldn’t like it and, again, wouldn’t commit to having a healthier lifestyle.

This is the longest time I’ve committed to doing exercise! Waking up on a Saturday morning and enjoying going to my small group personal training is the reason I’ve been able to commit. With the support from Kelly, the Healthy Eating Meal Planner, and the small group personal training, I have lost nearly 2 stone!

I would definitely recommend small group personal training to people! Everyone is really supportive of each other and not judgemental in any way. It’s not a mega serious environment like ‘normal’ gyms; we chat and have a joke whilst doing our exercises. Kelly is really supportive and encouraging, and pushes when she feels you need that extra boost.

I’m so glad I bit the bullet and messaged Kelly and I look forward to seeing myself continue to get fitter, stronger and healthier.”

Jo, Small Group Personal Training member

I really look forward to my sessions knowing that each one will be different, as well as fun and beneficial.

“I run a couple of times a week, but I wanted to tone up. I already knew a few ladies who were members at Fitness Works, so it came highly recommended to me.

I was a bit worried that I would find excuses not to go to the classes and pay for something that I wasn’t using or enjoying. I was very wrong – I find myself juggling work and home to make sure that I can get to all my classes!

I can honestly say I now enjoy exercising! I really look forward to my sessions knowing that each one will be different, as well as fun and beneficial.

I would recommend the fitness classes at Fitness Works to all the ladies out there who want to tone up, get fit and feel great. There’s such a great support network and no one judges you. Give it a go!”

I’ve stuck to the promise I made two years ago to never ‘diet’ again, and I know that I will keep to this now, forever.

“I had spent my entire adult life ‘dieting’ and never being happy with my body.
There were times when I lost a decent amount of weight over the years – up to nearly three stone – and felt fab, but inevitably it went back on… and more!

When I had my second child and my daughter was 5, I knew I needed to lose weight again and felt horrible about myself, but I was so tired of counting points or ‘syns’ or calories and beating myself up every time I couldn’t stick to these restrictive diets, or I couldn’t enjoy things that my friends and family did. I knew I didn’t want to do that anymore.
I was terrified though – I hated exercise!

I always knew that Kelly (Fitness Works owner) would be lovely to work with. She was my kind of girl and a genuinely lovely one at that. My biggest apprehension though was that I just wouldn’t like it. I’d never stuck at the gym for very long, paying memberships over the years. I may as well just have burned my money. The fact was I just hated exercise. I hated the way it made me feel out of breath and weak, and that I just didn’t know what to do. However, I liked the sound of what Fitness Works offered, opposed to a normal gym, so I knew I had to at least give it a go!

From the minute I started at Fitness Works, I found the whole place and atmosphere so much more welcoming and relaxed than anywhere I’d been before.

I tried fitness classes at first and loved them! I still didn’t like the breathlessness, but the classes were fun and the time always flew by. I felt amazing when I’d finished and raved about it at home and work – something I’d never done before – going to the gym was something I forced myself to do (if I went at all) and I’d never felt like I got results.
I joined small group training not long after, and fell in love with this. It was so good to have someone guide you to do exactly what you needed to do, and not just wander round machines trying to do it yourself!

The best part about it all was the education side that goes hand in hand with what Kelly does. My whole understanding about food as fuel for the body, and what I should be eating and in what proportions, has totally re-educated me. I’ve completely changed my outlook on exercise and food and I’m proud and so grateful to Kelly for that.”

I asked Kat what her two best results were, since joining Fitness Works. She said:

1) I’ve stuck at the gym for over two years – longer than ever before and it still more than fulfils what I want from it – I still enjoy every single session!
2) I’ve stuck to the promise I made two years ago to never ‘diet’ again, and I know that I will keep to this now, forever.
Oh, and can I have a third?
3) My daughter loves to hear about the gym and what I’ve been doing. She came with me once and said “Wow Mummy, you’re so strong!’ And that, is more than I could have ever hoped for. She sees me as being fit and healthy not dieting. How good is that?!

Thank you, Kelly. You’ve changed my life!”

Kat

My biggest result is my arms! I’ve always had weak upper body strength so I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved there.

“I first came to Fitness Works because, after exercising all my life, I was struggling to know how to exercise because of pain in my hip.

I’d had major surgery in 2013, which changed the way I felt about my body and it knocked my confidence, although I was still able to exercise. Once I had the hip diagnosis (a labral tear) I gave up because the fitness classes I was doing, although I enjoyed them, were just painful and unmanageable. So when I first came to Kelly at Fitness Works, I had put on a lot of weight (in my terms) and felt unfit.

I didn’t have any reservations about working with Kelly. The only thing was, I had always been convinced that running, high impact, cardio-type exercise was the way to burn fat so moving to lifting weights wasn’t something I was used to and I wasn’t sure it would have an impact on my body.

It’s been fab working with Kelly. I feel like she listens to me, she works around my health issues and she’s produced a programme that works for me. Kelly pushes me to try harder by encouraging me. She pick me up when I’m down and she has created a gym that isn’t competitive or judgmental – it’s supportive and encouraging.

My biggest result is my arms! I’ve always had weak upper body strength so I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved there. But I think the best result is, I’m better at focusing on a good diet and losing weight slowly in the right way.”

Waking up on a Saturday morning, and actually enjoying going to my small group PT, is a big part of why I’ve been able to commit.

“This is the longest time I’ve committed to exercising. Waking up on a Saturday morning, and actually enjoying going to my small group PT, is a big part of why I’ve been able to commit.

The bonus I’ve had is the support from Kelly and nutritional advice which, combined with the exercise, has helped me to lose nearly 2 stone since the end of November.”

Jo, Small Group PT Client

“I look forward to coming to my classes – even after a full day at work I can’t wait to come and get training!!! Love all the Trainers and love the fact they have given me the confidence to live my life.”

Sharon Columbine

“I have never stuck at exercise until I started training at Fitness Works and that’s because I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t like it. This place has made me the fittest I’ve ever been and it’s so friendly and down to Earth. I love it!”

Kat Thornburn

“Fitness Works is a brilliant place. Kelly and Wayne are fantastic Personal Trainers. Kelly has built a gym where people are supportive and encouraging – it’s my happy place!”

Louise Astbury

“Fitness Works is an absolute gem of a place. I started training here back in November 2017 and I’ve never looked back. Kelly and her team are fantastic.”

Gemma Hough

I’ve been training with Kelly for three years now and have no intention of stopping.

“Absolutely love Fitness Works. I’ve been training with Kelly for three years now and have no intention of stopping. In all that time I’ve never wanted to quit once. It’s not just a gym; it’s a team/family. Genuinely the best place I’ve been a part of. Kelly has created a place that’s supportive, motivating and welcoming. The Trainers are ace, clients are inspirational, and I can’t recommend it enough.”

Liz Burnett

I would highly recommend this gym to anyone looking to train and be challenged in a supportive environment.

“Best place I’ve ever trained! The atmosphere is so supportive. I continued to train with Kelly throughout my pregnancy and she adapted everything for my growing bump! Now I’ve had my baby, she is really helping me regain my fitness and confidence. I would highly recommend this gym to anyone looking to train and be challenged in a supportive environment.”

Kirsty Foster

A fabulous, friendly place to reach your goals!

“Kelly is a fabulous PT who has been able to train around my various injuries to help me achieve things I never thought possible; every session is different and tailored to my needs and best of all, Kelly is an absolute role model who practices what she preaches. A fabulous, friendly place to reach your goals! Thank you so much for all your help.”
