Through my sessions with Sam my strength has increased more than I could imagine, my body shape has positively changed, along with my attitude towards food thanks to his nutritional advice. Sam explains the exercises in a way which is easy to understand and he also advises what muscles the exercise works and why it is of benefit (which personally I find really interesting). I love the sessions. They are varied, so there's no risk of getting bored and Sam will adapt them to take into account any niggles you may have or if you're struggling with a particular move. Sam has helped me achieve (smash!) the goals I have set myself. He is always positive and encouraging and will give you that extra push when you need it. I walk away from each session feeling brighter and with a little bit more confidence. I can't thank him enough!
When I came to Sam I'd been weight-training for close to a decade but I had hit a plateau. Since then, Sam has helped me to gain 10kg in a little over 100 days whilst ensuring I stay looking lean. Sam developed an enjoyable training plan as well as a meal framework that I customise to fit my week and what I want to eat. I feel like I have a much better understanding of nutrition and training which has led to better results rather than just being told to do X, Y or Z as was the case with previous trainers I've worked with. Sam is a knowledgeable trainer but is also very honest and a realist so there's no mind-numbing exercise routines, boring meal plans or ridiculous promises of results without hard-work. The way I see it is that Sam provides the map and all I need to do is follow it and put in the effort. I would definitely recommend Sam, as long as you are serious about achieving your goals and not just "showing up".
I first began training with Sam approximately 4 years ago, after struggling to lose my baby weight following the birth of my daughter. I was 30kg overweight and struggling to fit in to my size 18 clothes. Needless to say my self-esteem was low and it felt like I had a mountain to climb! My first goal was to get down to a size 14 in 2 months in preparation for a wedding in Italy. Initially Sam trained me at home using just bodyweight and kettlebells, it was hard work but by training with Sam 3 times a week and being careful with what I ate I achieved my goal and fitted in to the dress I wanted. Since then I have continued to train with Sam, and am now am happy with my body and fitting in to size 10 clothes. Training with Sam helps keep me focussed and the constant changing programs and workouts he plans helps keep me motivated. If you are willing to put that hard work in I have no hesitation in recommending Sam to anybody who's looking for an outstanding Personal Trainer.
