Laura's Fitness Journey

I started training with Martin 2 years ago.

I needed someone to help me improve my physical strength and general fitness, specifically to help me with playing tennis and skiing.

Following a recommendation from a friend, who had been seeing Martin and achieved great results as well, I thought I would give it a try. I had never been to a gym before never mind used a personal trainer. Early on I felt very comfortable with Martin and the environment of the gym. I was 53 when I started so was worried about being surrounded by fit gym bunnies! But it has been fun getting to know the other gym members who are friendly and are from various age groups and physical abilities, so I have always felt comfortable.

Martin listened to my requirements and tailored a program for me. After only 8 weeks I went on a skiing holiday and was able to keep up with the younger members of my family for the first time in years and stayed out all day. I have continued with Martin for 2 years and subsequent skiing holidays have given me equally great experiences.

Over that time I’ve had a few injuries and been through some difficult times at work. Martin has been patient with my limitations and my frustrations with work and I can honestly say he is more than a fitness mentor - he has also been my counsellor and physio and now a friend too.

Thank you so much Martin.

Laura, 55, Newark,
