I always leave each session with a huge smile

I joined The Fitting Rooms back in October 2021, and have never looked back since. The Shared PT programmes are truly exhilarating. I always leave my sessions energised and wanting more. The monthly programmes are expertly curated by the trainers themselves, which means that they can then tailor the programme to my goals and progress. Speaking of progress, I have not felt this good and this strong in a really long time. As one of the unexpected outcomes from joining The Fitting Rooms, I always leave each session with a huge smile on my face, and that is down to the staff incredibly upbeat, always positive attitude. I’d gladly recommend joining The Fitting Rooms to anyone that’s looking for a great fitness and/or conditioning programme delivered by a great, fun team.

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!

Darren Leach

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!

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!

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

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 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

It feels 1:1 even when you have 3 others in the session…

Thanks to Google and testimonials, I found the perfect gym for me at TFR. I’ve done a variety of other classes and types of workouts, but I knew strength training was what I needed to see real results. The Shared PT is perfect for someone like me who enjoys the social aspect, but wants to still have personalization. The workouts are challenging in the best way. I immediately saw results in how much stronger and better I could lift just in my first month of sessions. All the trainers are amazing – they really help you with your form and it feels 1:1 even when you have 3 others in the session. Once I got back into the right workout routine, I figured it was time to look at my diet too. TFR nutrition has been key to seeing fat loss results. After some intensive and failed diets, the combination of training and food with TFR has felt like a sustainable lifestyle change. They really listen to what you need and help you adapt your life slowly so it’s truly sustainable. I can’t recommend TFR enough – they truly have it all and help you make a lifestyle change that will stick.

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

Really friendly trainers and a fun atmosphere!

“Really friendly trainers and a fun atmosphere! I joined The Fitting Rooms in April wanting to get stronger but was always a bit intimidated by weight training. After a few months, I feel much stronger and way more comfortable. The PTs we’ve worked with really take the time to give personalised guidance and are all ultra knowledgeable. The feedback and encouragement you get from the trainers is also really helpful. Would definitely recommend joining this gym!”

Natalie

The best gym I have ever trained at…

The Fitting Rooms is, by miles, the best gym I have ever trained at. Worth absolutely every single £ I’ve put into training there. Going to back to the gym after a long time can be intimidating but the personal trainers there are amazing at making everyone feel comfortable, unique while ensuring we all improve our performances week after week. In the space of 2-months I went from bench-pressing 40kg to 72.5kg and from squatting 40kg to 75kg. After 3-years on and off working out, I am beyond happy I have finally found a gym that keeps me disciplined and pushes me to my limits in a friendly environment. Every week I look forward to my sessions there. A massive thank you to everyone at the Fitting Room! Your gym deserves an award and all of you are amazing people.

Jonathan

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

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.

I now feel the best physically and mentally that I have in a long time

“Joining The Fitting Rooms Shared PT sessions has been one of the best decisions I’ve made this year. Ahead of my wedding, I wanted to get myself into shape and I now feel the best physically and mentally that I have in a long time. It had been a number of years since I’d done weight training, but through the support of the PTs, I have been seeing real progress in each class and getting stronger, which is very rewarding. I would highly recommend TFR to anyone seeking a results driven training journey as part of a fun, like minded community.”

Fraser

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
DIRECTOR OF CURRICULUM

Each week I learn something new…

I’ve been training with TFR for over 2 years and continue to really enjoy it. I’ve gone from a complete weight-training novice, to feeling comfortable and confident in the gym. Each week I learn something new about myself, nutrition, or weight training; and I’ve seen consistent results and progress in my goal of building lean muscle. What separates TFR to other gyms is how committed they are to delivering customer service, creating an open environment to allow people with different levels of experience and different goals, to train together.

Alex Maidwell

I’ve lost weight while increasing muscle & gained confidence…

I was struggling to find an effective and sustainable approach to fitness until I came across The Fitting Rooms. Shared PT has been absolutely brilliant for me. I love that you get coaching on form and progression from fantastic trainers, challenging routines that change every month, and a flexible timetable so you can always fit it in around your schedule. Since joining merely 4 months ago, I have lost weight while increasing muscle, and gained a huge amount of confidence.

Zach Rothstein

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.

Best fitness experience I ever had!

Best fitness experience I ever had! Joining The Fitting Rooms has probably been the best decision for my well-being in 2023. I struggled going to the gym, used to feel frustrated and never showed up consistently. Since I joined TFR three months ago, not only have I become fitter, but now I enjoy exercising, I’ve educated myself, know what works best for my body and on top of this, met incredible people who have similar goals 🙂 I joined for results and I’ll stay because of the lifestyle!

Irene

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!

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!

Chantelle Taylor

The workout programmes are well-designed and really work

I discovered The Fitting Rooms during the pandemic lockdown, as somewhere I could go for socially-distanced weight training. Since then, I’ve been completely hooked. The trainers are knowledgeable and help me push my limits without going overboard, and the workout programmes are well-designed and really work. My sessions with TFR give me a sense of accomplishment far beyond what I get working out by myself. I’d recommend them to anyone!

Albert Chu

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.

I have seen a massive improvement in my overall fitness…

I joined The Fitting Rooms about a year ago and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I have seen a massive improvement in my overall fitness, it was especially evident on my Christmas ski trip – I felt stronger and more confident on the slopes, and was able to ski for longer periods of time without getting tired. I know that my membership at The Fitting Rooms helped make that possible. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their fitness and have a better time on their next ski trip!

Rob Jenkins

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!

Sarah Jane Flavell

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

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
Commercial Property Manager

Get back on track after the lockdown…

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

Flavio Oliviera

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!

Tom Carter
Deputy Head Teacher

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.

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
Head of Product

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
Social Worker

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

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!

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.

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

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.

Linda Rose

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

In just a few months I have seen great results…

This is a very good 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!

Kritsana

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
Executive Director

All the PTs are a joy to spend time with…

I never wanted to join a gym. However, as I turned 55, I knew there was compelling evidence that I’d benefit from strength training. My challenge was to find a gym where they could work round my old creaky joints and I wouldn’t feel hopelessly out of place. The great news is that I found The Fitting Rooms. All the PTs are a joy to spend time with and somehow manage to strike the perfect balance of support and challenge. I joined the gym hoping to get stronger. What I didn’t expect was to also laugh so much along the way!

Ruth

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

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

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 trainers are excellent…

From my very first session at The Fitting Rooms, I felt so welcome. The trainers are excellent, and the sessions are hard for sure, but also so much fun. The training programmes change every 4 weeks, which means you never get bored. I decided to have One-on-one PT alongside the Shared PT group sessions, which works well for me to keep me consistent and accountable. The trainers really engage with you about your goals and celebrate all your wins with you, which is really lovely!

Nilly

They contributed to me having an extremely positive pregnancy…

I started training at The Fitting Rooms when I was around 12 weeks pregnant with my twins. I had always trained but was keen to get some expert prenatal training support given this was my first pregnancy and I was unsure what I should / shouldn’t be doing. I had also undergone fertility treatment to conceive so I was a little bit more cautious but knew that I wanted to remain strong and healthy throughout my pregnancy both for me and the babies. It was honestly one of the best decisions I made. They were knowledgeable and supportive – I felt in very safe hands. The workouts were challenging but so enjoyable – I really looked forward to our sessions each week. I honestly believe that they contributed to me having an extremely positive pregnancy and birth experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Fitting Rooms to anyone looking to exercise, both during pregnancy and afterwards.

Carys

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

I genuinely look forward to exercising and working with the trainers….

After not making much progress in commercial gyms, my wife suggested I join TFR. My outlook on going to the gym has now completely changed. I genuinely look forward to exercising and working with the trainers. The programmes are challenging, varied, and you receive fantastic and personalised feedback on form. Training has now become a part of my routine and I’m grateful that TFR is helping me to keep fit in a sustainable way.

Joseph

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.

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.

I did my Prenatal strength training with TFR and they are fantastic

“I did my Prenatal strength training with TFR and they are fantastic in designing adaptations for me at different stages in my pregnancy, with PTs that give personalised support and attention in small mixed classes. I felt encouraged at the progress I was making, being able to move my body and feel strong throughout my pregnancy has been amazing!”

They truly are a one-of-a-kind gym

I can’t recommend The Fitting Rooms enough! What really sets them apart is the incredible trainers – everyone is friendly and supportive and they made me feel comfortable from my very first session. I was a complete newcomer to training, and used to find other gyms intimidating and working out a chore – now I look forward to my sessions every week. The PTs always take the time to talk you through exercises, push you to achieve new goals and celebrate with you when you achieve them! I’ve really enjoyed meeting and training alongside new people in the shared classes, and I’ve noticed a massive difference in my strength, fitness and confidence. I’m so glad I gave The Fitting Rooms a go – they truly are a one-of-a-kind gym.

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!

I am feeling healthier and am more confident in my appearance

“This is a very good 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!

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!

The training helped significantly in me bouncing back…

“I joined TFR when I was a little over six months pregnant. I was keen to build up some upper body strength in preparation for the big arrival. Yasmin was splendid. Being a mother herself and certified to design prenatal training plans, I felt completely comfortable. I feel the training helped significantly in me bouncing back as fast as I did. It gave me more strength and stamina. I was back at the gym as soon as I could. It has been a big confidence builder to see what I can do after having given birth.”

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.

Shared PT transformed how I feel about going to the gym…

I’ve only just started going to the Fitting Rooms (just over two months now) and I am already feeling much better, and looking much better. After putting on a lot of weight in lockdown I was struggling to find any motivation to go to the gym. I’d not done any exercise regularly for about five years (and now thanks to a lot of what they’ve taught me I realise even then a lot of what I was doing wasn’t right for me). The Foundation Shared PT sessions have completely transformed how I feel about going to the gym. For the first time ever, I look forward to it. I didn’t think I’d enjoy training with a couple of other people, but everyone here is incredibly friendly. All the trainers here are excellent. Because they keep track of what you’ve been doing, what you’ve been lifting and how you’ve done, they are incredibly good at making sure each person is doing what’s best for them, even in a group. I’ve learnt loads from each of them, and they all take the time to focus on technique as well as progress. I thought I’d do this as a kickstart, but to be honest I can’t imagine stopping.

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.

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!”

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!

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.

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!

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.

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..

You get a lot of guidance…
