Hemione

I have lost 2 stone in a 5 month period and managed to maintain my weight at my target level for over a year! I am also much fitter than I have been in years and can keep up with the family on our skiing holidays.

I decided to start training at MWFITNESS as I had put on too much weight and was not as fit as I would like to be. I did not have the time or motivation to exercise alone or focus on losing weight. I have lost 2 stone in a 5 month period and managed to maintain my weight at my target level for over a year! I am also much fitter than I have been in years and can keep up with the family on our skiing holidays. Mike always takes the time to understand what I want to achieve and tailors the program accordingly. I particularly like the variety of exercises – you never know what you’ll be doing next! Give it a try – you won’t regret it! Notes from the Trainer - Mike Williams Hemione came to me very determined to lose weight ready for her 40th birthday party. A busy work schedule meant that little could be done to increase the amount of time we could spend in the gym so we looked at her nutrition in a little more detail. Hemione's weight loss in testament to her ongoing discipline with her eating and drinking. As the results started to show, her motivation only grew stronger and therefore her work rate in the gym kept going up and up. A total weight loss of 28lbs, 8% reduction in body fat and 6 inches off her waist. A fantastic achievement.

Our first ever 'Member of the Month' winner tells us her story.

There were a few factors that drove me to start training at MWFITNESS. I was 51 and had been gaining weight steadily for 10 or more years. I was feeling unfit and my joints were stiff. I finally felt like enough was enough! Since starting the program with MWFITNESS, I have lost weight changed my body shape and generally feel better about myself. I enjoy shopping for clothes – the first time in 20+ years! I like the fact that the program gives me a structure for exercise – I would never have achieved this on my own! My Trainer, Mark is knowledgeable, reliable and easy to work with and I trust his advice and skills. The outcomes achieved rely on a partnership but you must follow the advice and instruction given! If you commit to this for 6 months to a year, the rewards become evident- healthy living is not achieved in a few weeks.

I'm always amazed that after 8 years Mike still finds new exercises for me to try! My sessions are varied and fun and I always feel more energised by the end. Mike is incredibly knowledgeable and approachable. He has a happy and positive demeanour and is always available to offer well-considered advice.

Lindsay came to MWFitness off the back of a hip replacement and wanted to increase her capacity for exercise and regain the strength and ability she had before the operation, needless to say she has smashed those goals!

The following is a testimonial written by Lindsay after training with Mark at MWFitness for just over 2 years "I joined MWFitness 2 months after undergoing a total hip replacement for osteoarthritis. I felt that I needed help to regain all the strength and flexibility that I had lost prior to surgery. I am a keen skier and I was determined to be able to enjoy skiing again! I am delighted with the progress I have made by training and feel that I have more than regained the strength that I had lost which is shown via the fact that I skied 10 months after surgery and will be going again in the New Year. My general fitness has improved hugely and its good to know that even in my sixties I can go on getting better! I have to admit to feeling very apprehensive about joining a gym and working with a personal trainer, however I really enjoy working with Mark and feel that I could not have improved so much without his knowledge and encouragement. Every session is different and I have especially enjoyed doing new things such as boxing. I would definitely encourage anyone of any age to join MWFitness. I have had gym memberships before but have always lapsed after a while. Its very different being able to work in a small and friendly place with someone that is investing time and enthusiasm in each individual." - Lindsay Lindsay's Personal Trainer, Mark, had this to say about her fitness journey It has been brilliant to watch Lindsay's progression as a client! She came to the studio that first time and was quite nervous about what Personal Training would entail. Gradually through her training we have built a great understand and rapport, to the point  where Lindsay will try any exercise and is fully reaping the rewards, with her hip showing no signs of weakness anymore.

With Mike’s expert knowledge and support I have totally changed my body shape and feel fitter now than when I was in my twenties. I‘m not going to say its not without hard work and I still have some way to go but with Mikes support I am not at all daunted by this prospect and I would recommend personal training to anyone wanting to lose weight, get fitter and generally just feel more energised.
