But don’t just take our word for it! Hear what our clients have to say…

I finally feel strong!

I couldn’t love training with Yas at The Fitting Rooms more. The facilities are pristine and lovely and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. I had never tried weight training before and am now completely obsessed! I had hit a plateau at my old gym, spending hours doing cardio, not noticing any change in my body, and certainly not enjoying myself. I now cannot wait for my sessions with Yas. She has taught me so much about my body and our sessions are never dull. Funnily enough, weight training increases my heart rate more than I ever noticed doing loads of cardio. I finally feel strong! I can’t recommend The Fitting Rooms enough.

They push you and keep you going till the very end…

I started at The Fitting Rooms a little apprehensive as I’d never trained with weights before. It didn’t take long for me to actively look forward to my Shared PT sessions at TFR. The team is wonderful and incredibly motivated – they push you and keep you going till the very end. Programmes change every month – keeping things fresh and challenging you at every step of the way. I joined with a goal in mind and I can safely say that I wouldn’t have reached it without the constant guidance and support from all the trainers at TFR. I would highly recommend the TFR to everyone – regardless of your experience (or inexperience) in weight training or whatever fitness goal you’re working toward.

Shared personal training is really cost effective…

Great staff, great atmosphere & great results (if you put the effort in)! Could not recommend highly enough. Shared personal training is really cost effective too and everyone there is so friendly. There really is a team effort when training. Transition between exercises is so smooth and your trainer knows exactly what weight you lifted previously and what they should raise you by to push you further. One word of warning beware the HIIT sessions 🙂 tough but very effective!

Steven Jennings

The trainers are all very friendly and knowledgeable…

I started attending The Fitting Rooms in May and so far the experience has been great. The training is varied and I get to learn a lot of new things and machines to use. The concept whereby the trainers gather a lot of information and know exactly what weight/effort you need to put in and also monitoring your progress, is very innovative. The trainers are all very friendly and knowledgeable and as someone who has been averse to gyms and their grumpy instructors in the past, this is a real plus. All in all, for me going twice a week, it is a perfect addition to my existing training schedule.

Benjamin Beer

I have achieved things that I never expected to…

I started training with Dave in 2014 and really recommend using him. I was looking to enhance my all round fitness and he has helped me to do that and build strength. I have achieved things that I never expected to and I am in better shape than ever. Plus with better diet and eating I no longer get energy lows in the afternoon. Training with Dave has made positive difference.

Andrew Nye

Feel stronger and can now run long distance easily…

I love The Fitting Rooms because it’s not like your usual gym where you are battling for a space on machines or fighting for weights along with all the other sweaty people trying to get bikini / budgie-smuggler ready for the summer. This gym is private and personal and ideal for people who are self-conscious or work out better without distractions. As a female wanting to get into shape and lifting weights for the first time, the results have been amazing! I feel stronger and can now run long distance easily, not to mention all the other good changes within my body. The Fitting Rooms really is an outstanding gym with highly dedicated, knowledgeable and motivational Personal Trainers and I really can’t recommend these guys enough, as! If you are looking for trainers who will guide and support you fully through your fitness journey, this is the place for you!

Alexis Jackson

I dropped 2 dress sizes in 4 months…

Super friendly and very effective. I dropped 2 dress sizes in 4 months (I did stop eating carbs at night) and had a great time doing it. The only reason I’m not still going is because I’m moving offices and I just pray I can find somewhere that comes close to TFR. The shared sessions worried me at first as was scared there would be super fit people in the same group and it would be an issue but you’re only training against yourself and it always worked out well. The trainers are all fab. I’ll really miss it there. It’s a real gem.

Judy Dunne
Digital Delivery Consultant

It’s the first gym where I’ve looked forward to going

I love this place and its staff. The training is all built around what you want to achieve and boy I’m seeing results for sure! The staff are just amazing; you feel cared for and they always accommodate your needs . They have the personal touch and make you feel at home. It’s the first gym where I’ve looked forward to going weekly and nothing will keep me away from this little hidden treasure in the heart of London. If you want results this is the place but beware, they push you to your limits and beyond!”

Johnny McElhinney

You really feel a part of a great community

I’ve been going to the Fitting Rooms for nearly a year now. Not only have the results been amazing, but you really feel a part of a great community of trainers and clients alike. I look better, feel better, sleep better and have more energy than I did when I started – which is so important for me, my lifestyle and my professional career. Having been to several gyms in my time, I couldn’t recommend this
personal training gym enough.

Chris Tingley

All the trainers are highly professional…

I would recommend The Fitting Rooms to anyone. All the trainers are highly professional but also really personable which make the work outs fun! I appreciate the way they take their time with explaining each move so we have the correct form when performing each exercise. They have a caring attitude as well as working you hard! The gym has a really friendly atmosphere – it is not at all intimidating and good value for money. I do the shared PT sessions which are fun and supportive..

Sarah Willis

I love the cozy and warm feeling at this gym.

I was trying out at this gym when I visited London two weeks ago.  The location is very convenient.  Being a General Manager of a global service management company, I could feel everyone was so naturally nice and friendly to welcome you when I stepped in.  I have been Equinox for years, but I love the cozy and warm feeling at this gym.  You can really focus on your training without distracting from anything else.  The personal trainer, Mike, really helped me to engage in the program particularly designed for me during the three sessions.  I had a such solid training and wonderful experience at this gym.  I highly recommend it and definitely go back again when I travel to London.

Jay Hwang

I’ve seen a real change in my body…

I’m really happy with my 1-2-1 training at The Fitting Rooms – it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach and after my first few months I’ve seen a real change in my body. The emphasis is on strength building with correct form so I’ve learnt loads and am not left broken after a session. The staff are all super friendly and the changing rooms / showers are big, bright and clean. Another plus point is the free provision of towels and padlocks.

Helen Thornborrow

Fun, focused and professional…

Having not done any regular exercise for far too long I joined the Shared PT sessions at The Fitting Rooms at the start of 2016. I have both thoroughly enjoyed my sessions at the gym and seen a marked improvement in my overall fitness and general health. Their sessions, which vary and evolve over time, are challenging but realistic, the HIIT circuits are not for the faint hearted but the post workout endorphin rush is worth the effort! The team, led by Dave, Steve and Yas, are all knowledgable and tough trainers who also are friendly, approachable and always willing to offer advice and help. I cannot recommend them highly enough if you are looking for a fun, focused and professional team to help you keep to your programme and push you to improved fitness levels.

Jack Thoms

Have achieved more than I ever thought possible…

The Fitting Rooms is a really fabulous gym with a truly fantastic team! When they say personal and tailored for you they mean it! I have been training with Dave Jordan for over four years and have achieved more than I ever thought possible thanks to his expert knowledge and abundant motivation, encouragement and inspiration. If you’ve not tried The Fitting Rooms gym yet then it really is a MUST!

Joanne Richardson

It’s definitely not your average gym…

If you’re after a friendly, accessible and results driven gym then The Fitting Rooms is for you. All the staff are so dedicated to what they do, It’s definitely not your average gym. The equipment used is top quality unlike other gyms I have encountered in the past. I can’t recommend it enough – there is nowhere else I would train.

Amit Patel
IT Manager

I’m down 12kgs and I’ve lost 15cms around my waist!

“Get in better shape” has always been a new year’s resolution. I’d sign a 12-month contract with a corporate gym, lose interest by February, then be locked into a contract I wasn’t using.

The Fitting Rooms is different. After a month of sessions I started to look forward to going. Me… look forward to gym… that was a first. Then I started noticing results; another first, since I’d never stuck with anything long enough for that to happen.

The whole vibe and ethos is different to anything I’d ever experienced in the fitness world. The trainers are friendly and encouraging. The other clients are lovely, and there’s no sense of toxic competition – everyone wants to do well and they want you to do well as well.

And those results? I’m down 12kgs and I’ve lost 15cms around my waist. So whether I’m rating The Fitting Rooms on atmosphere or achieving goals, it’s two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

Zoe Henry

Tougher than I ever imagined a home workout could be!

I’ve been doing both the Virtual Classes and the Virtual SPT and I’m loving them. They’re tougher than I ever imagined a home workout could be! The Virtual SPT is great for being kept accountable and I’ve found having sessions booked in has really helped with keeping some structure and sense of normality to my days – I’m still dreading weekly HIIT sessions even when the gym is closed! (Also, my first isolation purchase was a set of kettlebells and I hold TFR entirely accountably for that!). Thank you for setting up all the Virtual sessions, they really are keeping me sane!

Helena Blake

Helped me gain confidence and strength…

I trained at The Fitting Rooms for 2.5 years on and off, it was the only real exercise regime I ever stuck to! Especially in the lead up to my wedding last year, I was religiously there twice a week in my shared training sessions with Toby, who helped me gain confidence and strength I didn’t know I had in me. I’m so thankful for the supportive group sessions as I couldn’t afford 1 on 1 and going to the gym by myself scared me so this was a perfect compromise. And I made great friends too.. what could go wrong? I just wish there were more sites as unfortunately now my work has taken me away from Southwark so I am unable to come to my regular slots. I hope to be back some time soon though. Thanks guys!

Jo Grant

The Fitting Rooms feels exclusive…

My husband and I have been training with David Jordan for five years and we were delighted to join his new family-run gym. The Fitting Rooms feels exclusive, clean, very friendly, and doesn’t have all of the distractions of a “typical” city gym. David has been professional, reliable, easy to talk to, and has always offered a well-rounded service: quantified strength, flexibility, and nutrition. Now that I am pregnant we trust him to train me as far as possible and will continue with him post-baby as well. The Fitting Rooms and Dave are highly recommended by this SE16 resident – the 381 bus makes it easy!

Nadia Tess
Assistant Vice President

They know their stuff and will make you feel welcome!

I love working out at this gym. Everyone is friendly and the facilities are fantastic. All the sessions are conducted with a personal trainer so you never have to wait for the machines – or the showers – which is what I hate about big gyms! I’m really pleased with the results I’ve seen while training with Dave Jordan. He listens to my fitness goals, creates programmes that work with my lifestyle and pushes me just the right amount. It’s extremely motivating to see improvements in my training week by week. I always look forward to my workouts here. I fully recommend visiting the Fitting Rooms team – they know their stuff and will make you feel welcome!

Gemma Bridge
Comms Specialist

Great venue, amazing amenities, cool vibe…

Cannot recommend enough the Fitting Rooms! Great venue, amazing amenities, cool vibe and most of all the people who work there are lovely. They really know how to get you to the next level and offer you a variety of sessions tailored to your needs. Also great that there are no gym fees!

Julia Pavlova

I am well on my way to pre-surgery levels…

I’ve worked with James at The Fitting Rooms over the past eight months as part of my rehabilitation following major abdominal surgery. He has been outstanding. There was a proper handover sought from my physiotherapist and he has submitted his programme and report to my physio again for external review and she has noticed real gains. He and I feel that I am well on my way to pre-surgery levels. His approach has been planned throughout, always getting the right balance between ensuring safety and developing my core strength and general fitness. Significantly, he has identified the additional psychological components that led me to over-protect the surgery site and has used graded exposure to help me build my confidence when making certain movements. I cannot recommend him and The Fitting Rooms highly enough for this rehab-orientated approach.

Ben Papps
Clinical Nueropsychologist

You get a lot of guidance…

With the gyms still closed I was desperate to get back into some sort of weights routine and that’s when I saw The Fitting Rooms ad. I’ve really liked the small group sessions outside and the workouts are good mix of upper, lower or full body using weights and body weight. There’s never more than four people and a PT so you get a lot of guidance which after a long break of doing nothing has really helped me get back into the swing of things.

Johathan Beaumont

I have been really impressed at the quality of the virtual coaching

I joined The Fitting Rooms the week before lockdown started, and assumed this would put a stop to training and kill my motivation for getting in shape. When the team announced they were going to be hosting virtual sessions I was a skeptic at first and had assumed these wouldn’t be effective, but thought I would give it a go. I was massively proved wrong. I have been really impressed at the quality of the virtual coaching and variety of exercises, and as a result have seen great results – both with my physical health but also mental health with having something to focus on and bring a sense of purpose each day during lockdown.

Now that gyms have reopened I have been doing a mixture of virtual and face-to-face sessions, and I feel I’m getting the best of both worlds. Having never lifted free weights before I was hesitant at the prospect of doing so, but the intimacy of the sessions allow the trainers to pay close attention to detail – getting your form right, ensuring that you’re challenging yourself but not pushing yourself too quickly. I’ve been able to build on the foundational strength I built through the virtual sessions, and feel much more confident and that I’m making gains more quickly.

What separates The Fitting Rooms to other gyms is how committed they are to delivering customer service – whether it’s adapting how they deliver sessions virtually or face-to-face, or creating an open environment to allow people who have different levels of experience and different goals they want to achieve, to train together.

Alex Maidwell

The best thing I have ever done for my health, happiness and confidence…

The best thing I have ever done for my health, happiness and confidence was joining TFR. If you are looking to work with passionate, experienced and talented trainers who are experts in their field, this is the place for you. The shared personal training is an inspired way to give folks the individually tailored and challenging attention they need, while making it more accessible to people who don’t want 1 to 1 PT for whatever reason. Dave, Steve and Yas have built an inclusive environment where I feel completely comfortable (something rare for a gym) and where you can also expect fun while you get fitter! They’ve staffed this place with excellent trainers like Issie and Toby who are adaptive and encouraging. And to top it all off, have a model that gives us clients exactly what we need. Would highly recommend to anyone of any ability who is looking to make a lifestyle change and invest in themselves.

Guided me through rehabilitation exercises…

Dave has been training me twice a week for 5 years. I am so pleased with the results, my muscle definition & strength has improved tremendously. Dave’s great strength is that he seems to know my body’ capabilities & idiosyncrasies better than I do so I trust him completely with whatever exercise he asks me to do. He has guided me through rehabilitation exercises after I had my anterior cruciate ligament replaced in Oct 2013. Dave has in depth knowledge of sports training anatomy etc. and so explains clearly to me the aims & benefits of each exercise or regime of exercises. I have learnt with Dave that you are never to old to set & achieve new levels of physical fitness & strength.”

Paul Williams

Great equipment, friendly and motivating staff…

Highly recommending The Fitting Rooms PT gym. Convenient location, great equipment, friendly and motivating staff. Personal trainers there know their jobs very well and help you get the best out of your sessions. I was never a fan of going to the gym, but after training in TFR, gym is now an enjoyable part of my routine.

Sokratis Konstantinides

I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been…

Working with The Fitting Rooms has allowed me to follow a healthy workout regime whilst performing in eight shows a week. This is something I never thought I’d be interested in, let alone achieve. The space is very welcoming and the location is extremely convenient. It was recommended to me by a friend 3 years ago and I’ve not stopped since. I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been and with my job I’ve been able to maintain a lot of energy when performing on stage. I couldn’t recommend training with The Fitting Rooms enough!

Killian Donnelly

I more than doubled my strength in the big lifts…

I became one of Steve’s clients in March 2013 and have been training with him three times a week ever since. I previously rowed for Cambridge in the lightweight boat so I have always been able to push myself and had very good aerobic endurance. However, I was looking to increase my strength and build a little muscle but was lost when it came to free weights, which is why I decided to train with a personal trainer. Within the first six months of working with Steve I put on just shy of 10kg whilst keeping my body fat to around 11.5 %. I also more than doubled my strength in the big lifts such as the squat, deadlift and bench-press. Steve always works with me to constantly tweak and vary my training and this ensures that I continue to progress and stay motivated.

James Wright

One of the best things I’ve done…

I’ve been training with Yas for around 3 months and it’s one of the best things I’ve done. I’ve never been really sporty but with Yas I can feel myself getting stronger and fitter every week – not only in the gym but in normal life too. It’s very satisfying not having aching arms when I’m carrying the Sainsburys shopping home! Yas is really supportive and has helped me enjoy the gym, which is something that has never happened before! Taking up one-on-one personal training was honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made: even in such a short time, it’s really changed my life.

Dani Jeyes
Corporate Finance Analyst

The best thing I’ve done for my fitness

I started training at The Fitting Rooms in October 2018 and without a doubt its the best thing I’ve done for my fitness, strength and general wellbeing. I hadn’t done this kind of weight training before but any fears I had were soon dispelled by the friendly and down-to-earth trainers… The one-to-one attention and family atmosphere makes TFR unlike any gym I’ve been to before. I couldn’t recommend the gym and the team more highly!

Reeta Gill

I now look forward to going to the gym…

The-Fitting-Rooms-Personal-Training-Client-Lara-London Marathon

I have been training with Yas since May 2013 and I give her all the credit that I now look forward to going to the gym and am a self-confessed gymaholic! Her dedication to her work combined with her knowledge and understanding of fitness have been extremely inspiring for me. Yas’s approach to training is fun, effective, unique and motivating. It is not a repetitive, mechanical process of doing reps and is not all about running on a treadmill aimlessly for hours on end. She focuses a lot on activating the various muscle groups so it’s impossible to cheat and you see (and feel!) the benefits even after a short time. Yas creates specific training programmes to help you achieve your personal goals and varies this frequently to keep you and your body challenged and constantly progressing. I can’t thank Yas enough for her patience, skills, knowledge and friendship.

Pushes me beyond what I capable of doing alone…

I started training with Dave in 2011. As I put on a middle age spread I was keen to get back into shape. Working with a personal trainer once a week helps keep my training in focus and now forms an integral part of my overall exercise regime. He structures my programme to suit my individual goals and targets and encourages and pushes me beyond what I capable of doing alone. I am fitter, stronger and have a better physique than ever before in my life. Dave was invaluable in taking me through rehabilitation and strengthening work after a knee operation and I am now participating in distance running and cycling events and have completed a triathlon: something I never thought I would do! My son, Ben, has also recently started joining my personal training sessions. Sharing sessions has introduced more fun, enthusiasm and a little competitive edge to the work out to ensure we continually raise the bar, outside of being good father-son time! I find the pace of the session is even better regulated when the focus is not entirely on me, and watching Dave tutor Ben helps to improve my own technique. Just as importantly though, training is more enjoyable with lots of banter. Dave is very personable and makes training interesting and enjoyable, I cannot recommend him, or The Fitting Rooms, highly enough.

Michael White
Property Investment Director

Positive impact on my quality of life…

I had major spine surgery some years back and have to be mindful of continuing disc degeneration. This means that what I do when exercising is really important. The expertise and equipment available at the Fitting Rooms has meant that I have achieved a level of strength and flexibility I would not have imagined possible. This has had a substantial positive impact on my quality of life as well as being fun with all the added benefits of shaping up, better sleep quality and greater energy levels.

Lisa Vlahovic
HR Director

There’s a genuine warmth woven into the fabric of this gym…

What makes The Fitting Rooms great and draws me back time after time is quite simply the dedicated staff and welcoming environment. I was always quite apprehensive about joining a gym and felt a little intimidated about gym culture. However, The Fitting Rooms is unlike anything I’ve previously experienced. There’s a genuine warmth woven into the fabric of this gym, which helps to create a positive and friendly community. Since I’ve started training at The Fitting Rooms, I’ve felt an increased level of confidence and focus in my life. I always look forward to the next session, knowing it will be challenging and fun.

The new programmes have included exercises that support & strengthen posture

Huge thanks to The Fitting Rooms. The move from Shared Personal Training sessions to Virtual Shared PT has been seamless. We still get the regularly updated programmes, tracked progress and expert guidance and adjustments, but now we also get hugely creative solutions to weights (everything from tins to filled backpacks to bags of cat litter) and even more attention than before. The new programmes have included exercises that support and strengthen posture, which is definitely needed in our new WFH world. But best of all, we still get to train – and laugh – together. Definitely needed when you’re cursing Toby for yet another challenging set.

Jane Cloete

A varied and challenging workout regime…

Training with the team at The Fitting Rooms in London Bridge has given me both a varied and challenging workout regime to follow alongside my usual gym routine. I’ve been introduced to an entirely new way of training and one that really gets results – the results I wanted but wasn’t getting from my boring gym cycle before. The shared personal training sessions offer great value for money and the quality of sessions are by no means compromised. I would highly recommend The Fitting Rooms to anybody that wants to tone, build strength, and generally make their workouts interesting again, no matter what your level of fitness is.

Georgina Lineton
PR Account Manager

The whole team are experts in their field

Completely deserved 5 star average for The Fitting Rooms! I’ve been training with them for over 6 months now and haven’t missed a week, which says a lot! The shared PT sessions are just as good as any one on one session you’ll find, if not better. Having others around you helps you to keep pushing yourself and, so importantly, makes it affordable meaning you can maintain the training long term. The whole team are experts in their field, they put you at ease in what can be an intimidating environment, and always try to get the best out of you. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Shefali Sood

The trainers are all at the top of their game

The Fittings Rooms is an EXCELLENT place to train. I have trained at a number of personal training studios over the years and this is my favourite. The trainers are all at the top of their game and the combination of strength and HIIT training is an offering lots of places don’t have. My results have been fantastic since I joined and, just as importantly,
I’m enjoying training more than ever.

Pete Ogden

The gym is equipped to the highest standard…

I’ve been training with Yas since 2014 and have loved every minute! Before starting personal training, my fitness had plateaued and I was feeling demotivated with my gym visits; I was focused mainly on cardio based exercise and had limited experience in training with weights. My training has now been completely reinvigorated and I look forward to every gym visit, especially when I have my one-on-one sessions. Yas’s passion and knowledge is clearly demonstrated and I have seen my fitness and strength improve dramatically which has been extremely motivating. Training at The Fitting Rooms Personal Training Gym only serves to enhance my sessions as I’m confident you could not get a more friendly, inclusive and welcoming training environment than that at The Fitting Rooms. The gym is also equipped to the highest standard, being of a far superior quality to any other gym I have trained at. I have loved training with Yas at The Fitting Rooms and I look forward to continuing to do so in the future!

Vicky Chappell
Audit Manager

Quickly noticed a significant difference…

I first joined The Fitting Rooms whilst training for the 2016 Boston Bhangra Competition, one of the biggest international Bhangra competitions in America. I was a little bit apprehensive about weight training at first, but after my initial Taster with Yas I knew that the well thought out training programmes provided by TFR would be the perfect addition to my training regime – and they really were. I trained 2-3 times a week on the Shared personal training programme in the lead up to my competition and very quickly noticed a significant difference in my strength, tone and stamina. The team at TFR create an extremely friendly and motivating environment to train in and really go the extra mile for all their clients. With the help of the team at TFR, I was able to reach peak condition in time for the competition and our team went on to take first place! With a fantastic, experienced group of trainers, high quality equipment and a very personal touch, I have loved every minute training with TFR. I could not recommend them enough. In fact, I’ve even come back to continue my training even though my competition training is over!

Manpreet Sagoo

The money is the best I have ever spent

I joined the fitting rooms in advance of my wedding, and cannot fault the service, effectiveness or fun of the guys there. I was a pretty typical guy working in London, too much drinking and fast food, not enough exercise, had tried gyms before, always on my own and with little effect. Steve and the team were brilliant and put in place a tailored training regime and diet for me, supported me with encouragement and advice and made sure the sessions were challenging but always within my ability. The money is the best I have ever spent and allowed me to shed 20KG in 4 months. As long as you’re willing to put in the work, they are definitely the guys to go to. I would 100% recommend anyone considering signing up.

Elliot Golds

I have been able to lift heavier week on week…

I have been training with Yas since June 2014, during which time I have seen my strength and fitness massively increase. Yas has a wealth of knowledge and a real passion and love for fitness and strength training. She approaches our sessions with such consistency and attention to detail. Under her expert eye, I have been able to lift heavier week on week, which is really rewarding, whilst still maintaining a strict program and improving my form. I have learnt so much over the past year; my confidence on the gym floor is such that I don’t think twice about setting up a squat rack or knocking out a few deadlifts. In a world where the weights room is a bit of a ‘man’s world’, Yas is a breath of fresh air and a total gem. I highly recommend her and The Fitting Rooms gym without reservation.

Laura Comerford

You really feel part of the family when you train here!

I decided to invest in the ultimate focus package and it was the best decision I have made. It was important to me to find a place where the staff are friendly, facilities are clean and somewhere I enjoy going and I have definitely found that here. Other members are open and chatty, the PTs are all very experienced and knowledgeable and I am already seeing great results!! If you are considering a Personal Training studio I would highly recommend coming here. It is a family business through and through and you really feel part of the family when you train here.

Monika Noor
Enterprise Solutions Consultant

Helped me improve my technique, posture and lifting weight significantly…

I’ve been weight training with Yas for just over a year and she’s helped me improve my technique, posture and lifting weight significantly over the time. She structures my sessions so that there’s a decent progression each time, without pushing too hard or too fast, and builds in variety by changing around the programme every few sessions. I don’t know how many other clients Yas has, but she always remembers what we were chatting about in the last session. It’s a small thing, but it’s a personal touch I appreciate about her training

Jock Busutill

They actually care about your fitness and well being!

Amazing Gym! Amazing Workout!! Amazing People!!! From someone that doesn’t have a lot of spare time, these guys know their stuff! They even explain the benefits of each exercise you do. There are not a lot of private gyms in zone 1 (London) that are professional as well as personable with their clients. They actually care about your fitness and well being! Highly recommended!

David Wong

Working out has become enjoyable…

Put simply, I’m that person who loathed any form of physical exercise — its just not in my DNA to move my body in a way that will create sweat (okay, there is one way, but my mum might be reading this…). I was the least sporty boy at school, the one who always sat on the sidelines. I was useless at rugby and football, not the best swimmer and forget about any kind of gymnastic ability — a forward roll was about my limit. So with all that said, I shall now be that annoying person who tells you how great the gym is, and that’s all down to The Fitting Rooms. When I first met my Yas, I was terrified. I braced myself for her to bark orders at me and make me run until I threw up and laugh when I struggled to lift a bag of sugar. But, she didn’t. She was funny and jovial and knew just how to motivate me and tailored my workouts to suit me. Training with Yas has changed my perspective. Working out has become enjoyable rather than something I feared. Not only does she make me laugh, but she encourages me in a positive way and gently pushes me to do better than I originally thought I could manage. To turn a lifelong couch potato into a gym goer is no small feat. Yas is terrific and I wholly recommended her and her team at The Fitting Rooms. My new trim body thanks her whole heartedly too!

My sessions are the highlight of my week!

When I started at The Fitting Rooms I was nervous that I wouldn’t enjoy it or fit in.  Six weeks in & my sessions are the highlight of my week! I’m making incredible gains, with 1 to 1 attention from the trainers who ensure that you’re getting the most out of the session plus the social side of training in a small group is a fantastic bonus. I’m lifting weights I never thought I would and actually enjoying it.

David Ian

This is the best place on earth!

This is the best place on earth! I love training at The Fitting Rooms. I had never trained with weights before but it didn’t take long for me to actively look forward to my Shared PT sessions at The Fitting Rooms.
The team is fantastic and incredibly knowledgable, friendly and approachable. I get constant guidance and support from the trainers and already, only after 4 weeks, I can see changes within my body.
TFR isn’t like your usual gym! It’s private, personal and very female-friendly. I feel very comfortable training there and this is an ideal place for people who are self-conscious. I love the fact that the programmes change every month which keep things fresh and challenging. Also, the TFR app is great which allows you to book your sessions easily and plan your training. I would highly recommend the TFR to everyone. Looking forward to book my next session.

My only regret is not starting sooner!

I have been doing Shared Personal Training with Steve at The Fitting Rooms for about 2 months now. I am an avid runner, but prior to starting at TFR I had never done any weight training. Now, having done personal training for about 2 months, my only regret is not starting sooner! My programme is focused on Body Composition and core strength, as I wanted something to help me tone up while also strengthening my legs, back and core for those long runs. Within the first few weeks I began to see results in many ways: how I look; increased energy levels and better sleep. My running times also began to improve, even seeing some PBs after over a year of plateaus. I am now able to push myself harder and recover more quickly, and I am looking forward to incorporating work with TFR as part of my training plan for the London Marathon in 2016. I now get many compliments on how I look and I recently got married and it was fantastic to look and feel so lean and fit in my dress! I wholeheartedly recommend shared PT sessions at the Fitting Rooms. In addition to being great value for money, their dedicated and professional PTs work with you to create a plan to work toward your particular goals and motivate you to achieve them!

My sessions have made me much more confident

I’ve been doing the shared PT sessions at The Fitting Rooms for around 12 weeks now and have absolutely loved it. With a max of 4 people per session, it makes it a sociable experience but also allows the trainer to make adjustments specific to each person. My sessions have made me much more confident when in the gym on my own as I have the knowledge of correct form and I’m not scared to be (often) the only girl in the weights section of the gym!

I’m squatting and deadlifting weights that make me proud of myself…

I have been working with Dave since 2014 whenever I can fit in a session. I have always been a keen sportsman and had a good understanding of how to exercise certain muscle groups so hadn’t really looked at working with a PT before. Dave changed that opinion! I developed a knee injury from running which I have been unable to shake so working out in different ways became important to me to keep fit and in shape. On top of introducing me to specific exercises to help my knee problem which work (a number of physios have been less than helpful), Dave has introduced me to a number of different workouts that challenge me in a number of different ways while keeping it fresh. I have never been into lifting heavy weights but now I’m squatting and dead-lifting weights that make me proud of myself while having a variety of free-weight exercises to hand that work other areas. Besides being very professional and great at his job, Dave is also a great guy who is easy to get along with and we often find ourselves having a good laugh in between the sets.

Shared training is the way of the future!

I’ve had more noticeable and rewarding results in my first 10-weeks at The Fitting Rooms than after a decade of ‘being a member of the gym’. The team are friendly, professional, engaged, and take your training and progression seriously. The workouts are challenging, but achievable, and having an active, passionate trainer keeps you engaged, accountable and progressing. Shared training is the way of the future!

I have seen great results…

This is a fantastic training gym! I was a complete novice when I started so was quite nervous about joining a gym. All of the trainers are very friendly which creates a welcoming and supportive environment. In just a few months I have seen great results, I am feeling healthier and am more confident in my appearance. I would highly recommend The Fitting Rooms to anyone who is looking to begin their fitness journey!

The physical and mental benefits are noticeable…

I’ve been training at The Fitting Rooms for almost a year. I enjoy it immensely and the Shared Personal Training sessions are a really social way to workout. Seeing the same friendly group of encouraging faces each week is as much of a motivator as the knowledgable un-intimidating Trainers. As lockdown has eased I’ve been mixing outdoor 1-1 PT with the shared sessions and couldn’t be happier with the results. The physical and mental benefits are noticeable.

From the moment you enter everyone is really friendly and welcoming.

I couldn’t recommend the fitting rooms enough. From the moment you enter everyone is really friendly and welcoming. One thing that separates this place from the competition is that people of all different shapes and sizes train together (no need to feel awkward if you’ve never had a PT or don’t look like a “gym bunny”), and all the members really encourage each other. There are different trainers each with their own style so you can pick and choose sessions to suit what you want to work on and who with! The price point is excellent and the option of shared PT means that you get to train with like-minded individuals who really spur you on (which is often necessary!). The way that they have morphed this into online/outdoor training sessions so quickly after the covid-10 lock-down is really impressive. Don’t be fooled, even without the standard heavy gym weights these experts really know how to make you sweat!

A safe programme to help me cope with the pregnancy…

I had my first session with Yas the week I found out I was expecting my first baby. Before then my fitness wasn’t great, especially as my job is quite sedentary. She designed a safe programme to help me cope with the pregnancy and prepare for labour. I worked full time throughout, leaving little time to exercise. Having one-to-one sessions meant I got the most out of an hour’s training, without ever overdoing it. Because of Yas’s expertise I was able to work with weights, which I would not have had the knowledge or confidence to do on my own in a normal gym. I trained weekly until just before my due date. It was great fun and I found it highly effective. My overall fitness level and strength definitely improved, and I even got some definition in my arms. I had no back pain at all during my pregnancy and felt very well prepared for the birth. I have now started training again to help my body adjust to the demands of looking after my little one. Yas clearly knows her stuff and is really lovely to spend time with. I’d recommend her to anyone.

I am a huge fan of the Shared PT…

I have been training in the shared personal training sessions every Monday and Wednesday evening, since October 2015, with Steve. These are fantastic sessions and never in a group of more than 4, and often just 2, so the attention is really focused on each individual making it incredibly effective. Steve is a very dedicated personal training guru and everyone who takes part in the group PT sessions leave at the end having had a great work out. I have started to notice significant changes just in the short time I have been doing these and I look forward to continuing. Not only is it a great work out (I find it more productive than when I have had 1 on 1 PT sessions at other gyms) but it is also good fun and it is good to have other people taking part so you can push one another. Furthermore it is fantastic value for money when you compare this with your average 1 on 1 PT session in a big brand gym and the results are a lot better for me too. I am a huge fan of the Shared PT training and couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

Get back on track after the lockdown…

Great PTs, excellent programme. Highly recommended if you want to get back on track after the lockdown.

The best thing I have ever done

I started working with Yas in January 2014 and it is genuinely the best thing I have ever done. Prior to this I had never really done much in the gym and always felt a bit stupid because I didn’t know what I was doing, but now I genuinely enjoy exercise and look forward to it. I absolutely love our sessions together – she pushes me further than I ever would myself and I have seen truly amazing results. I was a rather wobbly size 12/14 and now I’m a toned size 10 and I’ve never been happier – not just because of my body, but my mind and soul too! Yas has taught me what to do when I am on my own so that I am using the time most efficiently to get the best results (I try and train another 2-3 times a week outside our personal training sessions). She also helps me with nutrition planning and nutrition advice, so I’m not just fitter and stronger but I’m healthier too. Having Yas as my personal trainer has transformed my life… I know that sounds ridiculously over the top but it’s completely true. I’m happier, healthier and more beautiful both inside and out than ever before!”

Noticeable and measurable change in muscle vs. fat mass

I have been attending the Shared PT sessions for just under a year.  I hadn’t ever really been to a gym consistently before  and was daunted by starting from the beginning but The Fitting Room team and the fellow gym goers have made it an absolute pleasure to attend.  Although the sessions are tough, I actively look forward to them. Some of the benefits I have found include: Noticeable and measurable change in muscle vs. fat mass; Better posture; The regular exercise really helped with changes in other areas of life from my diet and psychological/motivational approach to my domestic and business life; Feeling more positive and motivated in general. I have attempted to go to the gym in the past and failed but having the PT there to record your progress and see measurable improvements with either increased weights or reps as the sessions progress is addictive.  There is also a great social aspect too with the other attendees all being supportive and really welcoming and making the experience fun. With the recent Covid19 interruption I took advantage of The Fitting Rooms’ virtual sessions.  I was apprehensive at first on how effective they would be without being in a physical gym, but I have been amazed at how good these have been!  I have been in as much pain (in a positive way!) as I have by attending the gym in person by using a variety of body weight exercises, towels, water bottles and even tins of beans as equipment. Thanks guys for all the support so far and for helping me make such a positive change and improvement to my life!

Has helped me build the knowledge and confidence to workout on my own…

Before I started training with Yas I was a semi-regular gym goer, sticking to the same limited selection of exercises I was comfortable with. I kept to the cross trainer and static weight machines, too intimidated to enter the free-weights area, and was making very limited progress. More than 18 months later and it’s completely different story. Since I began my sessions with Yas I’ve had a very clear focus, she regularly changes up my plan, taking time teach me exercises I’m unfamiliar with to ensure proper form and challenging me to get the best results. Yas has helped me build the knowledge and confidence to workout on my own and now I’m a gym regular, three times a week. The hard work has payed off as I’ve seen clear progress which no doubt is down to Yas’s great work.

I already feel so much stronger running…

I was pretty nervous when I first walked through the door at the Fitting Rooms in February. I shouldn’t have been, the Fitting Rooms is a really welcoming place and Yas was lovely. I’m targeting three hilly ultra marathons this year and wanted to start doing some strength training. Yas has been working with me ever since, making sure I build strength where I need it and encouraging me to work hard. I’ve made far more progress than it ever would have done on my own or in a class (which are the other options I was looking into). I already feel so much stronger running on the hills and I wish I’d found the Fitting Rooms earlier!

The training programmess are always fun and varied…

I have been training with Yas for over a year now and I have come to really value her as a PT for many reasons… She is very positive in the way that she trains me, using encouragement, flexibility and patience to get results, without any BS! She has a real passion for her work and this is incredibly motivating. During our sessions Yas is totally focussed on my agenda making me feel like I am her only client and I love that she never texts, chats or gets distracted whilst training me. She obviously sees her role as being broader than just the hour session itself, giving encouragement afterwards or sending helpful articles to explain a point. Yas recognises my goals and celebrates with me when I achieve them so that it feels like a working partnership. The sessions themselves are physically very well balanced – I showed a year’s worth of training programs to a physiotherapist when I was injured and they couldn’t fault them, and in fact suggested I just carried on with the training sessions rather than prescribing any specific rehab exercises. Yas is totally dependable and has never missed or late cancelled a session, and is very responsive to text and email making it easy for me to manage my diary. The training programmess are always fun and varied and are clearly effective: in 14 months of training I have dropped around 10% body fat and seen my strength, power and endurance levels increase dramatically. The results speak for themselves!

The Fitting Rooms has completely changed my life…

Quite simply, The Fitting Rooms has completely changed my life! I actually look forward to working out and feel great afterwards. I was a complete gym novice – never ventured near scary looking weights and stuck to the standard treadmill, bike etc. However, The Fitting Rooms has made me feel excited to work out and most importantly made it easy to integrate it into my lifestyle. The Fitting Rooms offers a complete package too: easy sign up, consultation free of charge and an option to buy a block of passes which you can use any time to suit you. All the trainers are personable, approachable and take into account any specific requirements you have to create a tailored programme. I have done only the shared sessions and found this to be a great way to meet new people and also motivate each other. The biggest bonus for me is how easy it is to book sessions online via the MindBody app. My schedule is slightly unpredictable so the flexibility of doing morning or evening sessions has been really helpful. I couldn’t recommend The Fitting Rooms highly enough!

The PTs are friendly and highly knowledgeable…

I have been to a few gyms and I really recommend this place for its friendly atmosphere, facilities and its knowledgeable staff. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. You sign up for shared personal training sessions with three other people (sometimes less) and you are each shown by the trainer how to do a particular exercise. You get to know the other members and everyone actually says hello to each other, which came as a shock to me at first! A different feeling from other chain gyms. As it’s shared PT, you will always be able to access the facilities without having to queue up. They have everything to match whatever fitness goal you have from losing weight to building muscle. Above all else, the PTs are friendly and highly knowledgeable. I have been to the gym on and off in the past but I have received great tips for doing big movements like deadlifts safely. You feel like you are in safe hands and the PTs are very focused on technique and posture. The shared training sessions make it a more affordable way to tap into their knowledge and boosts your confidence when you are doing these exercises.

The results were clear to see…

When I started training with Fitting Rooms I hadn’t trained properly for over 6 months and was definitely in need of a kick start so did I did the 3 months Shared PT Focus package, training three times a week. I loved every minute of it and the results were clear to see. I was pushed in every class I had with each trainer bringing something new to the shared session. Sharing the sessions made it both cost effective and motivating as each week you saw someone new or someone progress. I’ve moved jobs now and am no longer local, but I still get up at 5.30am once a week so I can go to a session. I’ve trained elsewhere and you just don’t get the same great, dedicated and well thought out service that leaves you feeling exhausted and exhilarated all in one! I would recommend to The Fitting Rooms Shared Personal Training to anyone!

The best physical shape of my life…

I have been training for around 10 years and have always been very comfortable pushing myself to achieve my fitness goals and as a result of this I had never considered using a personal trainer. This all changed when I developed a rotator cuff injury after overtraining. Dave was highly recommended to me, not only as an exceptional personal trainer who achieves fantastic results for his clients, but also for his knowledge of injury management and prevention. Through my training sessions with Dave I have not only overcome my rotator cuff injury but have also got myself into the best physical shape of my life and I now have a whole arsenal of exercises I hadn’t ever done before! Dave is not only ideal for reaching your fitness goals and injury management but he is also a great laugh which makes the training sessions something I would look forward to, even after a hard day of work.
