*I’ve been training with Gary now for a while and when I first started I was quite unsure whether I was doing the right thing, as I’m 61! Gary has been extremely encouraging and supportive. I have trouble with one of my knees so Gary asked me to see a Doctor first to ensure we would not be doing any damage then he adapted the training to suit me. I’m finding it challenging but I also enjoy it too. I would definitely encourage people of my age to use Gary for personal training.
James is hugely knowledgeable in all things relating to health and fitness*Myself and My daughter in law had James as our personal trainer for three months. We were both wanting to improve our strength and fitness prior to holidays and both felt that our objective was met. James is hugely knowledgeable in all things relating to health and fitness whilst possessing a kindly and caring approach to his clients.He was always well prepared with a different regime to suit our needs on each visit and on occasions also managed to keep my little granddaughter entertained whilst we were working out! Thanks James.
Absolutely loved having James
*Absolutely loved having James as our personal trainer, he was very professional and the work out was always different, tailored to what we wanted and liked to do. James is also absolutely lovely, we had such a laugh. I would definitely recommend him.
Lucy was able to bring out the competitive spirit in me
*I have trained with Lucy for three years. During that time she has challenged the way I think about myself with her enthusiasm, dedication and encouragement during our training sessions. I now eat more healthily and I have become a much stronger woman physically. I can actually say I am proud of the way I look (quite an achievement at 49). She was able to bring out the competitive spirit in me and I have enjoyed the variety of activities and sessions she has always provided. Thank you Lucy, you’ve been a star.
Mel has helped me gain confidence in my own abilities
*Im not going to lie, i was lazy, didnt want to train, got stuck in a rut. But Mel changed that!! My experiences over the last 12 weeks with Mel have been uplifting and brilliant. She is inspiring, encouraging and knows her fitness in and out. She has helped me gain confidence in my own abilities, all the while helping me get fit and reaching my goals. Her friendly yet tough approach to training has made me get out of my cake eating rut and feel great! I would happily recommend her and am taking out another 12 week contract.
I have no hesitation recommending Jimmy to anyone
*Jimmy is an excellent PT, he is very flexible and easy to get on with making you feel relaxed when participating in one of his sessions. I have no hesitation recommending Jimmy to anyone looking for a Personal Trainer.
Jimmy has been great he provides a really tailored training service
*Working with Jimmy has been great he provides a really tailored training service, making sure that your sessions are enjoyable but also exactly what you need to reach your goals. Its just the right balance of being incredibly hard but fun at the same time that keeps you wanting to train. What started as a 4 week trail has now become a longstanding arrangement i couldn’t be without.
I am now training for the Bristol and Cardiff half marathons
*After returning from travelling, I gained a stone of weight, since starting training with Lucy, I have lost the weight and got into shape. I achieved my goal of running a sub 45 minute 10k, and I am now training for the Bristol and Cardiff half marathons.
Lucy made me feel comfortable straight away
*I used to use every excuse to try and get out of doing exercise. I had been working away from home for 3 years, living on hotel food and generally being very lazy. I realised something had to change when my sister was 3 months pregnant and still lighter than me! At first I was nervous, I hated exercising in front of people and felt very self-conscious. But Lucy made me feel comfortable straight away and after a few sessions I instantly started seeing improvements. The sessions that we did together were actually fun, which I wasn’t expecting, and varied enough so that I didn’t get bored and wanted to keep going. Lucy also helped me with food planning which I really enjoyed. After 7 months I had lost a stone, 14 inches and got down to the size 10 I wanted to be for a long time. Without the help and support Lucy gave me I just wouldn’t have got there on my own. My confidence has grown and Lucy has taught me so much about what my body is actually capable of doing. If you are looking to get in to shape and have fun I would highly recommend Lucy and OneLife.
I’m so pleased with the end result
*I Couldn’t have done this with out you Lucy. I’m so pleased with the end result – all the hard work & burpies was worth it!! Thank you so much for all the personalised training sessions to help me get wedding dress trim & ready!!

I feel much happier
*I can’t explain how depressed I felt about my weight before I came to you. After trying slimming world which did not work for me at all I had really given up & my eating was really out of control. I knew I had to do something and the rest is history as they say. I’m eating food in your food planners that I never thought I’d eat & what’s more the food is lovely. I lost over 2 stone in 12 weeks thanks to Lucy. I feel much happier, confident & have even started jogging which I never thought I’d be able to do.

I have found Lucy’s approach flexible and willing to accommodate meeting times
*I have a very busy work schedule that always comes first however I have found Lucy’s approach flexible and willing to accommodate meeting times for our one on one sessions. In addition the sessions are ALWAYS structured and progress is effectively monitored and this is really important to me as I like to see progress made! Really tough/exerting sessions but very rewarding, keep up the good work Lucy!

I have lost inches all over and feel absolutely fantastic
*I started my training 6 months ago with Lucy in an attempt to tone up for my wedding day. Lucy listened carefully to my goals and tailor made my sessions to work mainly on my arms. Each session is varied and interesting. I have lost inches all over and feel absolutely fantastic, especially on my wedding day. I have chosen to keep up my training after the wedding as Lucy is now training me for my first 10k, which i’m very excited about. All round Lucy has been a fab trainer and I would recommend her to anyone.

My family and friends are impressed with the six pack stomach I am developing
*I’ve been using Onelife for a number of months now. My family and friends are impressed with the six pack stomach I am developing and i’ve lost inches all over. However the real results are in my personal bests. I’ve smashed half an hour off my 10K time in just 5 months. Lucy gives great advice and encouragement both in terms of the fitness coaching and nutrition. Unlike some PTs she doesn’t stand on the side lines, she is with you all the way.

Lucy is encouraging and will push you knowing you can always do a little bit more*I spent a lot of time researching personal trainers so that I knew I would get the right one for me and I can say I am glad I took that time and found Lucy. No two sessions were the same so no chance of getting bored, the sessions were hard but manageable leaving me with a real sense of achievement as I worked out doing exercises I would never normally do. I never once felt intimidated which when you are a bit out of shape is important, Lucy is encouraging and will push you knowing you can always do a little bit more. I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions, thank you.
Vicky, 40, Emersons Green
I have become very addicted to exercise
*Lucy I want to say a big thank you to you. I have lost over 1.5 stone, dropped a dress size and bizarrely become very addicted to exercise. I went to get a new pair of jeans yesterday and have dropped 4 inches from my waist and come home with a pair of skinny jeans. Thanks you!

Mel and I always have a laugh which is what makes it fun
*I decided to get a Personal Trainer when I realised that even though I was spinning / running 3 times a week my heart was just not in it and I was bored. I have never enjoyed exercise as much as when Mel turns up at my door, no 2 sessions are ever the same. Whether it’s running through a field with a parachute attached to me, to circuits in my living room I love every minute of it. Mel is extremely motivating and although I work hard at every session, we always have a laugh which is what makes it fun. Personally I am pleased that Mel turned up on my doorstep, I couldn’t ask for a friendlier person to help me with my ongoing training. Thank you!
I look and feel healthier than I ever have before
*Lucy has a very motivated attitude towards helping people to achieve their goals. Her group classes are a healthy mixture of fun and hard graft made up of people of mixed abilities to which Lucy can very easily adapt her sessions to. I felt I could achieve in an environment that supported me rather than hold me back or leave me behind. For once I felt motivated to exercise. The results I have achieved with Lucy, I have never come close to before. After 6 months I had achieved a massive 4 stone weight loss and I had dropped 2 jeans sizes! I look and feel healthier than I ever have before. But most importantly I have now successfully passed my medical and fitness tests for entry in to the Royal Air Force – an ambition I have had for a very long time which is now suddenly achievable thanks to Lucy!
