Dr. Grimshaw

One of my important goals when I retired was to improve my fitness and strength.  Being naturally inclined to sit in front of a computer it was with some trepidation that I walked into a gym.  Eighteen months later I’m still here and can’t imagine life without the continued and varied challenges Ollie offers.  My weight has plummeted; my energy levels, strength and flexibility continue to rise.  What’s more, I positively look forward to our sessions and, if I’m away on holiday notice their absence.

 Ollie is flexible with his time and generous with his advice.  One of the things I most respect him for is his enthusiasm for learning; to become both more knowledgeable and increase his range of skills.  At this gym you get good science balanced with a personal approach that never pushes you past the point body or mind can go.  It says something for his attention to detail that when I started he asked me to score how difficult something was after ten repeats on a scale of one to ten “9.5 is good” (Ollie’s score) – “8.5 is quite enough, really do you want me to go on” (red faced clients pleading).  Eighteen months later he is still adapting my programme so he gets 9.5 from me.  And I’m still continually improving (and still whinging that 8.5 is good enough).

 Is this a recommendation?  Most certainly, go on try it, see if this can do for you what it’s done for me.

I walked into Oliver’s studio one January approx 2 stone over weight….over a period of 4 months his fantastic work reduced me to a fit 12 stone man. Also due to his excellent knowledge of food he educated me, what to eat and when. Two years on I am still the same weight and follow all of the exercise knowledge program set out by Oliver, I cannot recommend the studio enough, great atmosphere where you are pushed to your own limits…

thanks

Training with Oli at Peak Fitness has really helped with my running. I do speed work, tempo runs, hills and weekend long runs with my club and other training partners. But what I also need, to be able to stay as injury proof as possible, is very targeted strength training for my legs and core and I also like to keep my upper body fit for running as well – which is where Peak Fitness really helps!

What’s great is that I have been training with Oli for a while so he knows my history and my weak points and what to look out for in terms of even the slightest imbalances. I also like the fact that I can swap a training session every now and then for a Trigenics treatment and also get some great advice on things like nutrition as well.

Why Peak Fitness?

It delivers results!

I arrived at the doors of Peak Fitness as an overweight/unfit (size 22 plus) and lethargic 53-year-old female.

My Experience

Completely positive….

The environment at Peak Fitness is professional and completely non- judgemental. The trainers are friendly and approachable as well as being extremely well qualified to the highest proficiency level. Their knowledge and understanding makes me feel confident that I am in safe hands whilst exercising.

Sessions are individually tailored, varied and extremely well organised but at the same time challenging; they are also strangely enjoyable. Be warned; you might try and wriggle out of a particular exercise but these tactics will only be met with what can best be described as quiet determination, on the part of the trainer!

Progress to Date

Various old sporting injuries meant I had lost confidence in my ability, as far as any sort of exercise was concerned. Crucially in the pre training assessment at Peak Fitness they picked up that I had high blood pressure! Cue for action.

With Ollie’s guidance and support, my fitness levels and flexibility have improved significantly, so has my nutritional understanding. Gone are the days of buying endless rounds of magazines looking for the quick fix to being overweight.

I still go through the doors of Peak Fitness now as a 55-year-old female, with a normal blood pressure (GP very impressed), one who’s dropped several dress sizes! Things carry on getting better with the continued support of Peak Fitness.

Please give them a ring and you too can enjoy the rewards.

Rachel Wade

Rachel WadeI had lived what I thought was a relatively healthy lifestyle; regular exercise and a supposedly healthy diet. Over the last few years I was struggling to keep up with the exercise and keep the weight off and years of stress had taken its toll. I was overweight, had low energy levels, low self esteem and had resigned myself to living in a body shape that I wasn’t happy in.

I then came to Peak Fitness and Oli discussed my lifestyle with me and recommended BioSignature to bring my body back into balance and help me achieve my goals, with the focus on a healthier lifestyle. I also coupled the 12 week programme with regular personal training sessions and a weekly circuit’s class.

It wasn’t long before I could see and feel the benefits, Oli had re-educated me in terms of diet, food and exercise. I was sleeping better, stress levels were reduced and my body shape was improving.

At times it was tough but Oli kept me motivated and the BioSignature results were motivation in its self. By the end of the BioSignature, I had lost 6% body fat and a dress size but more importantly I was eating better, feeling better, sleeping better and my life was so much more balanced.

Since BioSignature I have continued with the healthier food choices, personal training and circuits and my bodyshape has continued to improve. Oli is always on hand to give advice in terms of diet and exercise.

Making the choice to come to Peak Fitness, do BioSignature, the personal training sessions and circuits have made immense improvements on my life and I have not and could not have achieved the results alone and within such a short time. I am looking forward to continued results with what I have learnt in terms of diet, lifestyle and exercise.

I would highly recommend Peak Fitness, a very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, credible and supportive environment with a personal and individual approach.

C. Leese

I came to Peak Fitness as a last resort. I had struggled with disordered eating since I was a child and had gained and lost huge amounts of weight since I started dieting around the age of 12. As a result of the last two years of very low calorie dieting and years of constant stress I found myself obese, with adrenal fatigue, exhausted and despairing of ever finding any solution. I had been to see hypnotherapists, psychotherapists, medical doctors, nutritionists and complementary therapists and had tried every diet known to man. I was extremely ‘good’ at dieting; very focused with great amounts of willpower. But each time I tried to eat a balanced diet the weight piled back on.

The first few consultations with Oli were a huge shock to me as Oli told me I had to radically change my eating to turn my health around. Everything I ‘thought’ I knew about healthy eating from years of conventional research and reading was flawed and I had to learn how to eat again, practically from scratch. He educated me, session after session until finally the importance of clean nutrition sunk in and soon I was eating foods I hadn’t touched since I was a child.

I signed up for Biosignature and every few weeks saw evidence of the changes that were happening within my body. Initially I was obsessed with weight and inches, but as my body changed and I learnt more I soon found far greater benefits.

I began to sleep better than I had in years, found my energy levels increasing and most importantly for me personally, the violent cravings I had for sugar and carbohydrates subsided, bringing great relief. The personal training sessions were carefully thought out and highly individualised to my physical needs and I actively looked forward to each session.

I started Biosignature and personal training at Peak Fitness as a size 18. I was incredibly ashamed of my body and actively loathed clothes shopping. I was depressed, very unwell and my life was completely ruled by food. One year on, my adrenal problems are resolved and I am currently a size 14. I sleep well every night and most importantly for me, I feel I’ve ‘conquered ‘my disordered eating. Something I didn’t think was possible. I’m passionate about weight training and continue to see my body change as I become healthier. I’ve learnt that over 20 years of abuse takes time to reverse and I continue to strive to improve my nutrition and training on a daily basis. The changes that I’ve seen are so profound that I studied to learn more about this approach to health and fitness; and have since qualified as a C.H.E.K Holistic Lifestyle Coach so I can help others reap the same benefits. I hope to go on to become a personal trainer myself.

The team at Peak Fitness have consistently educated, encouraged and motivated me to transform my life. Every session is enjoyable and training there has become the highlight of my week. I can honestly say that Oli saved both my life and my waistband.

Paul Dilley

The guys at PEAK FITNESS delivered fantastic results with a truly personalised training plan, which offered not just expert advice in training but also a fully tailored dietary regime which delivered results far exceeding all my expectations. In just over 3 months I have lost over 5 stone!

BeforeAfter I would recommend them to anybody, any shape, size and build, from beginners to professionals in the gym, you will not find other trainers with both expertise and true a willingness to help you achieve your goals not matter how big or small they may be.

Thanks!

 

Dr J Henderson

Retired family Doctor. At nearly 74 and feeling a bit jaded and stiff, i was amazed to find out, with proper professional guidance, just how much physical exercise I could safely do.

It has given my self confidence an enormous boost and made me much fitter.

 

Dean Macey FORMER TEAM GB DECATHLON

I have been lucky enough to know Mark for most of my life, and for eight months solid during my preparations for the World Championships in 1999, we trained together every day.

 

Although since then I have had a number of world class training partners from all over the world, none have come close to having Mark’s enthusiasm, dedication, and knowledge. I look forward to many more sessions in the future, Dean Maceye.

 

Mr I Campbell

I had become overweight and unfit due to a combination of heavy work commitments, poor diet and little exercise. As well as becoming a first-time dad!

I found that I did not have the time or the motivation to join a gym so I decided to try having regular appointments with a personal trainer.

I have been going to Peak Fitness for over a year now and in that time I have found the staff very friendly, approachable and more importantly excellent personal trainers.

It is apparent that they enjoy what they do and this comes across in my appointments. I have found them to be very knowledgeable in all aspects of health and fitness. They have gone to great lengths to make me more enthusiastic about my personal fitness and have prepared a specific program for me to follow.

Over the time I have been visiting Peak Fitness; I feel much healthier and have gone a long way in achieving my personal health objectives. The staff’s energy and attitude, their extensive knowledge of the human body and their ability to understand their client’s needs have made this on-going experience at Peak Fitness one that I would wholeheartedly recommend.

 

Dave Nicholls 4th Dan British Judo Association Coach. FORMER GB JUDO SQUAD

As an ex National Judo Team member I trained full time, in many different countries, for 7 years leading up to the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 and I like to think that I know a bit about strength and fitness myself.

Mark has helped revitalise my training regime; he has invigorated my personal motivation and he as added lots of new and varied training ideas.

My very high opinion of his methods has been confirmed by the significant improvement in my fitness, strength and flexibility.

 

Ms J Treewick

Pre booking my workout sessions ensures I attend rather than making excuses. This, along with Mark’s personal approach, has enabled me to achieve my fitness goals.

 

Mr D Durham

Having a tailored personal workout program ensures I am doing the correct exercises to achieve my fitness goals. My programme is regularly updated so I am always challenged and can see the progress I am making.

 

Mrs A Henderson

I have found great benefit in coming to the studio, not only has it helped me to tone my muscles whilst developing my strength, it has benefitted my breathing and helped control my asthma.

I certainly recommend Peak Fitness!
