Here are just a few of my more recent testimonials from people I have helped
Choosing to train with Marcus was genuinely one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Before I met Marcus I was a person who lacked a lot of self confidence. I was over weight at 16 stone 3 pounds and I was out of breath during the warm up. What I can honestly say about Marcus is that I never ever felt judged or pressured by him in the slightest, it was the complete opposite. He became a friend and gave me tremendous encouragement and as a result installed confidence in me making me realise I could definitely achieve my goals. Within a couple of months I had lost 2 and half stone with Marcus and I was delighted by the rate of my progress. A year later, and although I am no longer training with Marcus, he is still always more than happy to give me incredible advice and now I am a healthy 11 stone weight and I feel healthier than ever. Marcus's tips on nutrition are excellent and his dedication is clear from the very beginning. Marcus is energetic, fun, committed and inspirational…and I can’t recommend him enough!
Before we met with Marcus I had never done any structured exercise. My then fiancé had and was always talking about the benefits of exercise. We had decided to get married and so she decided it was time that we started to get fit.
Marcus was brilliant, we started a little bit at a time and within a matter of weeks we were both losing a weight and toning up. I also felt much better in myself. By the time of the wedding, 6 months later, I was feeling great and had lost about a stone and a half. We have decided to continue using Marcus and cannot recommend him highly enough.

On first meeting Marcus I found him approachable and friendly. His knowledge of nutrition was outstanding and the training routine that he has placed me on feels just right for me as I`ve been out of shape for some time now. Over the last 5 months with Marcus I now feel as though I have alot more energy and have lost a good bit of weight. First class training!!
Marcus has been helping both my wife, Frankie, and I over the last couple of years. He helped Frankie to recover from the injuries resulting from a fall and did so well that the consultant discharged her ahead of schedule. He worked with me to strengthen the muscles around my knees which my GP advised to postpone the need for knee replacement. He is still doing this for me and I am doing very well and my GP is very happy with the progress. He is now working with Frankie to rebuild her strength after a lengthy stay in hospital after another fall and a stroke during which she lost 20% of her body weight! This is his latest challenge and it is going very well. Frankie has total trust in him as do I. His knowledge and advice on nutrition has also been very welcome. He is meticulous in his care and always enthusiastic and a splendid motivator. His time keeping and professionalism have always been first rate. Both Frankie, who finished her working life as a Head Teacher and I as the Head of the school's Maths department and a Yea Leader also now retired, have complete confidence in recommending Marcus to you.

I have done personal training with Marcus over the last three years. I started with Marcus initially to help me recover from a torn knee cartilage. Marcus did a great job of focusing on agility and knee strengthening exercises to help me in playing badminton tournaments and matches. Soon after that I fell pregnant and Marcus was quickly able to adapt our sessions to take into account my growing bump! After the necessary break to concentrate on my new role looking after my baby daughter I am now training with Marcus again and he has adjusted the sessions wonderfully well yet again to help me get my cardio and core strength back. Marcus always seeks feedback during our sessions and will raise or lower the intensity of the activities to ensure I am working at an optimal level. I have no hesitation in recommending Marcus!
Having put on over 2 stone in the past 3 years working in a demanding office job, I knew I needed help. I tried to lose weight, but it felt like I never had time to exercise and it was impossible to eat well. Marcus helped me to plan my exercise and diet around my busy timetable whilst keeping me motivated. I am now back to my original weight! I am happier, healthier and slimmer, and I have Marcus to thank for that!
My partner and I had become the comfortable versions of ourselves and we struggled to maintain weight loss. We were unable to fullfill the easiest of day to day tasks that involved strength and exercise.
In just 3 months of an effective pre planned programme we have lost 2 stone between us. It has been slow but constant and maintained. He has provided us with a fun joint training session run by him and provided us with the tools to succeed on our own.
We would highly recommend Marcus who is always professional, reliable and always willing to go that extra mile for us. We find him engaging, motivating and mindful of our needs. He has not only set us on a physical journey but a mental one as well. Each week he unlocks potential we never knew we had!
We have a new relationship with exercise now and that's down to his inspirational coaching! Friends, family and work colleagues have made comments on the results they have seen in us both. We have already seen the results and are now seeking new challenges in both the short term and the long term. Thank you Marcus.

Marcus is genuinely an inspirational trainer, he transformed my diet, fitness and self confidence using a personally tailored training programme. He listened to my goals, answered my questions around nutrition and motivated me to stick to the plan! I would not hesitate to recommend Marcus, he is an excellent Personal Trainer.
I knew that I had the motivation to succeed, but not necessarily the knowledge on how to proceed to reach my goals; this is where Marcus' expertise became invaluable. Marcus provided clear and concise information to me regarding my training regime, diet and next course of action to strive to reach my goals. I have found working with Marcus an enjoyable and rewarding experience that continues to push me towards my full potential.
I found training with Marcus to be incredibly motivating. He explained clearly how I could lose weight, improve my health and nutrition. With a sedentary job and a lot of driving, it became obvious I needed to make some changes in my fitness levels. Having Marcus support me over the months has really helped and I wouldn't have been able to achieve this without his encouragement and knowledge.
If you've found yourself in a bit of a rut with your training then Marcus will definitely help you push passed it. I'd consider myself fairly experienced with training, especially with weights, but Marcus was great with motivating me to train beyond my usual expectations and with thinking about different ways of attacking my sessions for even better results.
A whole new way of training! Initially I was intimidated by resistance training, but Marcus gave me the confidence to try a different approach, finding the best individualy tailored solutions for me. The results were great!
Marcus has helped me immensely over the last six months with my goal of achieving better cardiovascular fitness and explosive strength for Rugby. His combination of modern training techniques, mixed with old fashioned hard work has enabled me to perform to a level on the rugby field that I haven’t enjoyed since I was in my early twenties (now 33). I was also immensely impressed with Marcus’s knowledge of the special dietary requirements required by people with diabetes, I am an insulin dependent diabetic myself and so my diet and training regimes had to be tailored to suit my condition, which Marcus did with an air of professionalism and personal care that left me in no doubt that I was in expert hands. If you are a sportsman or woman looking to get the edge on your opponents with your fitness then Marcus is the man to show you how.
