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.

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!
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… Read more “They contributed to me having an extremely positive pregnancy…”
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.
Training with The Fitting Rooms is fun and exciting. Every personal trainer is 150 percent focussed and never fail to motivate and inspire me during my sessions. Their encouragement continuously reassures me that there is nothing stopping me from getting fit. TFR focus on my form and technique without fail at every session making every movement count. Moreover, they always explain what / why I am doing certain exercises, and without fail answer my questions with knowledge and professionalism. I am happy to recommend them to anyone who wishes to improve their fitness.
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… Read more “The best thing I have ever done”
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!
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.
