I started my training with The Fitting Rooms back in October 2021, doing 3 days One-on-one PT sessions a week. The changes were amazing from the beginning, and in my 5th month of a tailored training, I can see the improvements in muscle definition, health and strength that I was looking for. The amazing team of trainers share their experience and improve the sessions week by week and push me to deliver better results. The atmosphere is funny and light, so that the sessions are enjoyable and motivating. I completely recommend The Fitting Rooms for anyone that is looking for good results, a nice place to be, an amazing team of trainers and flexibility to adapt your agenda.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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… Read more “A safe programme to help me cope with the pregnancy…”
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.
