Fitness & Rehabilitation – Testimonials
Being new to the idea of personal training, I needed to find a personal trainer who would be knowledgeable, and encouraging, and able to make training fun and relevant. Jules fits the bill perfectly. He is able to inspire and motivate me to ever higher levels of effort, and provides expertise and session planning that has made a real difference to me and my fitness levels. Two years on, I am still enjoying the training, and, more importantly, enjoying being fitter than ever, with the expectation of yet more to come. I cannot recommend Jules too highly for effective, balanced and fun personal training.
Jules has developed a training program that is tailored specifically to my needs and which is constantly modified to achieve great results. He is an amazing motivator, he has inspired, pushed, and nurtured me in my quest to keep fit and undertake ridiculously daunting challenges! I am one of his oldest clients (now 60) and with his help I have survived trekking at 17,000 feet in Peru and thanks to him I shall complete a half marathon in September.
I cannot recommend him highly enough, he puts the ‘personal’ into personal training!!
I have been training with Jules for two years now since my 50th birthday, it has not only improved my physical condition way beyond my expectations, I am certainly fitter now than I have ever been, but also my confidence has had a huge boost.
Jules has provided a very careful and structured plan for me with noticeable continued but gradual and permanent improvement from the start, all done with a friendly positive approach that has been flexible enough to accommodate my sometimes erratic work schedule. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their fitness.

I’ve lost 10% body fat and 3″ off my waist whilst training with stuart. I feel and look fantastic!
I’ve been working with Stuart for a number of months now and I’m chuffed to bits. I initially wanted to try personal training in order to lose weight and tone up ready for getting married next year but now I can’t imagine doing exercise without Stuart’s motivation and expertise.I’ve always struggled to maintain any weight loss and motivate myself to go to the gym, spending endless money on a gym and never atually going. It has been so much better value than joining a gym as the workouts are tailor made and always varied. Stuart always motivates me to keep going and make me feel at ease. Healthy eating has always mystified me and as part of his service gave me some handy notes on what sort of things I should be eating and avoiding.
I’d thoroughly recommend Stuart to anyone, I dreaded going to my initial consultation and he made me feel comfortable at once. He’s fun to work with and I always leave with a sense of achievement knowing I’m getting fitter and thinner by the week.

I have been using Stuart now for 5 months. I originally started using him as a top up before climbing Kilimanjaro. I was so impressed by the results of his training I kept it up upon my return. Thanks to his training I am competing in the Invesco Perpetual 24 peaks in 24 hours challenge in September 2009 and my long term goal is to climb the highest mountain outside the Himalayas, Aconcagua, in December 2010.
Stuart is a fun person to be around. He is firm but fair and will get you performing to your limits. I have no hesitstion in recommending Stuart whatever your abilaty level.
Every session is different; he knows exactly how far to push me and I always leave having worked much harder than if I’d spent an hour on my own in the gym. We workout outdoors as well as in the gym,which keeps things challenging and intresting.
I always look forward to my next session, which also motivates me to keep fit in the meantime. I would definitely recommend giving Stuart’s personal training a go if you want to get the most out of your workouts. He extremely knowledgeable about fitness and very fun PT to workwith.
I was in a near fatal motor cycle accident and nearly lost my leg, Stuart helped with my recovery with getting my ankle to move a lot more efficient with rehabilitation.
