A great place to train and stay healthy. Egos are left at the front, what you're confronted with is a friendly atmosphere where all abilities are welcome.
It's more than a gym to me it's a community who support each other.
Dan has a great sense of humour as well, I mean when you look like Whyte Goodman from Dodgeball you must have
14th December 2020
I used to hate the gym.... but I have now been going to Combat Fuel Fitness since August 2019.
Combat Fuel is not just a gym but a great community, it's the first gym I have been to where I have not felt judged, not only is the team super supportive, but they are also really knowledgeable in their field of health, nutrition and the right exercise to help you reach your goals.
11th December 2020
Following a recommendation to try Combat Fuel, I wound up at the door on my way home from work one evening mid January. Before I could talk myself out of it I opened the door and shuffled inside......Fast forward 11.5 months, one crazy year full of lockdown and face masks and I'm still here!
I never dreamt I'd find a place where I could finally complete a work out, without having people laugh, stare & whisper.
PT sessions with Alex are a fun challenge - even when you tell him your knackered and to go easy, he never lets up, he encourages you to keep going, keep pushing and feel proud of what you've achieved. Changing up the excersises each session so you're working different muscles and dont get bored.
During lockdown I stuck to my weekly sessions via video call, which provided their own set of challenges but helped keep me sane while the rest of the country went berserk over toilet roll & pasta!
Alex never gave up on me and today I can say I'm chuffed as punch to see what I've achieved in the space of a year, my weight is down, my body fat is down, my shape is starting to emerge from its thick old blanket, I'm still working out AND I'm enjoying myself! Who'd have thought it!
Thanks Combat Fuel!
10th December 2020
I joined Combat Fuel Fitness in the summer of this year after lockdown finally came to an end.
A fresh start in a new environment was a definite must and to source a friendly, professional gym that could offer me support to aid in achieving my desired physique.
I discovered this fab little gym called Combat Fuel who seemed to be able to offer that to me and more. All I can say is I wish I had joined sooner!
Upon my first visit to Combat Fuel to enquire about joining I was greeted by a very friendly Alex and Lewis and was instantly made to feel at ease and welcome. First impressions count for everything and I walked away feeling confident this was the gym for me.
Combat Fuel has been life changing for me in that just after 4 months of joining my physique has transformed quite considerably with the help of Alex's comprehensive, detailed training programmes.
Alex is a very personable, extremely professional and knowledegable individual who takes huge pride in what he does, his attention to detail is second to none.
Always a super friendly, relaxed, and welcoming atmosphere when I arrive and an extremely supportive environment in where Alex and the team and even fellow gym members are always happy to help.
Combat fuel really is an awesome gym. Its fully equipped, extensive onsite free parking available, toilets, and shower facilties, 24/7 CCTV coverage from the car park plus the wonderful members that make training here such a pleasure. Plenty of laughs and banter had too!
This place is a real gem.
10th December 2020
Really nice, clean tidy gym, staff and members always very helpful and the vibe is just perfect. Help is always at hand if needed and the range of equipment is more than enough to suit everybody's needs from keeping fit to strength training to body building. I would highly recommend this gym for any one in or around Andover!
9th December 2020
The best gym for miles, staff are always extremely helpful, equipment is A1 and other gym members always welcoming! It's more of a community than a gym as well, and for myself very nice to have other veterans and civilians alike around to spin dits with. I feel like I've made friends for life. All of this is before I've even mentioned the quality merchandise and supplements on offer. BZ Oppos!
9th December 2020
I joined Alex at Combat Fuel Fitness when he first opened and from a humble beginning I have seen Alex turn Combat Fuel Fitness into the best Gym in the area with the best equipment that caters for all. The Gym is a friendly community so if you want to keep fit, join the best, join Combat Fuel Fitness as Alex is an extremely knowledgeable Gym owner/PT.
9th December 2020
Combat fuel fitness is by far the best facility around, from the equipment, to the trainers, the nicest and most knowledgeable staff in the business today. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alex as a personal trainer, his military background and knowledge of the fitness industry give him a range of skills that are second to none. As well as the facility, obviously combat fuel is more known for its incredible quality supplements and charity work for help for heroes, and I won't use any other company because they don't get better than combat fuel!!!!.
9th December 2020
I have been using Combat Fuel Gym now for over 4 months. The equipment, atmosphere and sense of community has not only improved my health & fitness but mental health as well.
Alex and his team are always there to provide first class advice and encouragement.
Combat Fuel offers a community that other large gym chains simple cannot compete with. A welcoming environment no matter what level of fitness you are.
10th November 2020
Absolutely quality gym, I attend PT sessions here and the staff are great they make you feel welcome, the other gym users are welcoming. The equipment is class and the atmosphere is great. Attending a smaller gym like this made me very nervous but all the concerns I had were just in my head. I can't recommend them enough.
1st October 2020
I've been training here, since the gym opened! It has such a welcoming atmosphere, everyone that trains here are so supportive and I have been able to build some great friendships with those people!
The gym is packed with amazing equipment that will allow you to be able to get the results you want, no matter what your goal is!
12th September 2020
Amazing, fully kitted out gym with its own supplements store supplying some of the best supps on the market. Veteran owned and supporting veterans through help for heroes with an awesome community to boot.
8th September 2020
Great gym and the team take a personal interest in you and your development. They work out a plan that is going to get the results you want.
1st May 2020
I've spent two years attending (loosely) large commercial gyms, however, within a very short period of time I have found these to be very frustrating and soulless (these gyms are focused on revenue generation and not the members themselves)
I must say that since joining Combat Fuel Fitness, I have re-gained my love of fitness and the drive to better myself, this is largely due to the gym's approach to myself and other people (welcoming all like friends not like a money pit) by having a relaxed and positive atmosphere. It is very apparent (from my mind set) that this is a gym that makes you feel welcomed, and (most importantly) caters for all shapes and sizes of people without the feeling of being intimidated when you first start at a gym.
I highly recommend this gym to all (not just for the training itself but for the social side as well).
28th April 2020
I can't recommend Combat Fuel enough. Epic, welcoming gym with an awesome vibe and mega equipment and kit.
Cant wait to get back!
1st April 2020
The best gym I have ever been to. Not only do they have amazing and helpful staff, but all the members are so lovely and welcoming. It's not a large commercial style gym but yet still has everything you need for a proper workout! The staff are friendly and very proffesional, especially with privacy and confidentiality. Not only has it helped me lose weight and gain confidence, it has also aided me mentally and emotionally. No matter your circumstances or lifestyle, Combat Fuel Fitness can and will cater for you. From the elderly and disabled, to enabled and muscle builders, they can offer personalised programmes you.
28th February 2020
I have been going to the Combat Fuel gym for just over a year following a total hip replacement. It had taken me slightly longer to recover from the operation than I expected, and extensive physio was recommended to ease the problems. Alex designed a set of exercises for me which he redesigns every five or six weeks to keep my development going forward.
I recently was signed off by my surgeon and he was delighted with my progress. Effectively I can do every thing that I used to do before the operation, the same or better now. This is because I am actually a lot fitter than I was before the hip replacement. Thanks to Alex and Combat Fuel I hope to back on skis again later on in 2020.
27th February 2020
It's not like most gyms, there's no egos and everybody is welcomed and made to feel comfortable. A brilliant well kitted out setting with friendly management and clientele, and supports amazing causes through events and profit share.
Plenty of free parking too which is a nice bonus. HIGHLY recommended.
1st February 2020
A great gym with targeted equipment to allow you to enjoy a quality and challenging training session .
They have a welcoming community that makes you feel at home, always happy to help.
Worth a trip if just to buy some quality supplements
17th January 2020
Great gym. Love how everyone is so friendly and really help you out if you need it.
15th January 2020
I never thought I would have the courage to go to a gym, I am now 3 weeks in to my first month and I love it. Alex is amazing and helps you to feel comfortable as soon as you walk through the door, everyone I have met have been really supportive.
Only 3 weeks on and I am already noticing a difference, I am now no longer constantly in pain with my lower back and legs, I feel stronger and I really enjoy going to the gym, something I never thought I say.
Thank you Alex for being amazing and supportive of my journey xx
1st January 2020
A big thank you to Combat fuel fitness for being the best.
I'm your typical gym novice (running was my thing). I wanted a gym I could feel comfortable in, somewhere friendly and where I didn't feel awkward or under pressure. Alex and his team delivered and more. A program was set, help was given (I didn't know anything) and always a friendly relaxed atmosphere when I arrive. This is my 3rd month in and I'm honestly seeing some amazing results !!! So wether you want to join a professional gym, have personal training sessions or bootcamp, Combat Fuel is your choice
19th December 2019
BEST GYM EVER! Period!
Such a friendly environment where everyone is welcome, Alex makes sure he spends the time to get to know each and everyone of his clients and members, it's a real community.... a little gym family. We've just had the most fantastic Christmas do it's a real pleasure to part of this community. THANK YOU! combat fuel!
11th October 2019
I'm at the beginning of month 3 and Combat Fuel Fitness has made a huge difference to my life. After 7 surgeries on my foot and ankle and countless physio sessions, I was told that this was as good as it was going to get. I had a niggle/ ache constantly and could only walk a short distance without having a lot of pain.
After seeing the results Alex had achieved with others, I decided to give it a go and gave him a long list of things I was told I couldn't do.
Alex took the time to listen and really understood the problems I faced and with a few tweaks had me doing lots of exercises I didn't think possible.
Not only have the results shown physically with weight loss and increased strength, but I now have days where I am completely pain free. Today for the first time in years I was able to do a shopping trip and spent hours walking around. This would have not been a possibility before.
The gym is a super friendly place to be and everyone is supportive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alex and Combat Fuel Fitness to anyone and wish I had found it sooner.
10th October 2019
I've been impressed so far with this fab gym. Alex has me doing exercises I never thought I'd do. I'm in a wheelchair but with or without his help he has me using bench press, rowing machine, squats and they are sort of improving. I can't take much weight at all through right leg but I improve with the squats. He doesn't let me leave 1 or 2 either. I am surprised he doesn't treat anyone different to anybody else. We have a laugh as well. It's a nice gym, friendly he has banter with all people that go to his gym. It surprises me that I can achieve some things with Alex. He is bossy but it's fun I guess. I want the exercise, but I wouldn't be able to do it on my own. It makes a change that I can do things. If I did this alone on my own I would have given up by now. Alex pushes me to do it. I guess that's what I need. I am quite surprised that I've been with CFF for roughly 6 weeks so far x
20th September 2019
If you are thinking of coming to train at Combat Fuel Fitness, stop thinking and do it!
The gym has excellent equipment and free weights if you want to work out on your own and Alex has exactly what you need from a Personal Trainer: empathy, knowledge, specialist qualifications, someone who will make sure you reach your goals if you do your bit by putting the work in.
Alex gives you 100% of his attention and the benefits of that in terms of results show very quickly.
This gym is not a poser's palace, but a welcoming, friendly and inclusive environment. You will thrive here both mentally and physically.
Strength training is vital especially as we get older. I told Alex that I am not going to be that little old lady who cannot get off the loo on her own, can't get out of a chair, or has falls and is in and out of hospital all the time. When you are strong you stand better, walk better, your clothes fit better, and you feel much much better. Hard work gets results. It is worth it.
Stop thinking, just do it :)
24th July 2019
Well it's been an absolute pleasure to train at combat fuel fitness ltd. Alex is an amazing personal trainer and Genuine nice guy!
So much so, even though I'll be 3000+miles away in Canada I am staying with Alex as an online client!
I am gutted to leave such a nice friendly inviting gym!
All the best Alex see you in hopefully 3 years but I'll be in touch.
18th June 2019
Such a friendly gym, everyone is really nice and helpful! There is always such a nice atmosphere and Alex is a brilliant PT
31st May 2019
I throughly recommend this gym! Alex has been a great help with not only my fitness, but helping me explore the limitations around my disability. With the recently expanded gym unit, theres not only more space but more equipment to use. Even with the severe pain due my C.R.P.S, I can go to the gym and knowing not only my foot is safe, but I'm not as limited with the equipment I can use to get my fitness back on track.
19th April 2019
I would highly recommend this place!!
I was very nervous and had no confidence in the gym and no idea what I should be doing. Alex was incredibly supportive and always happy to help out when I needed a little extra guidance (which happened quite alot in the beginning). Really nice supportive environment where not just Alex but the other gym users are really happy to help.
5th April 2019
What an amazing gym. They have great staff who are always friendly, up for a laugh and very knowledgeable. Always good vibes. They also support an amazing cause.
30th March 2019
Started with Alex in January after moths of training on my own and getting nowhere. With his knowledge and expertise I have all ready made vast improvements to my training methods, my nutritional intake and also my basic knowledge of all aspects of the gym. Combat fuel fitness is a really nice chilled gym to be in, I feel welcome and part of the family every time I walk thorough the door.
8th March 2019
Excellent gym, very welcoming and friendly environment. Great kit and they also sell loads of supplements!
2nd March 2019
I have used Combat Fuel Fitness Ltd a few times now and can say each time has been a positive experience, the staff are friendly and are always willing to help no matter what your training requirements or experience. Probably the most ideal gym in Andover for those Who wish to step foot in the gym for the first time as nobody will judge and everybody is friendly.
2nd March 2019
After training with Alex for a year my self confidence and mental attitude is 100% improved from this time last year. Don't ever be afraid to ask for help, Alex is always there to support you in the gym. The gym environment is a friendly non threatening and non judgemental place to be any female would feel safe and welcome.
27th February 2019
PT with Alex has got me from 22% body fat to 15% in 6 months. Alex knows his subject very well and makes the sessions interesting and enjoyable. I would recommend him for his professional attitude, and also his sense of humour.
21st February 2019
Since joining Combat Fuel Fitness Ltd back when it opened in November my confidence within the gym has grown. The gym atmosphere is very warm and welcoming which helps to make anyone that is feeling nervous instantly feel relaxed and the owner Alex is always happy to help you and answer any questions you may have. I would recommend this gym to anyone regardless of gym abilities or age as it caters for all.
16th February 2019
I suffer with complex PTSD and depression, and am down on my luck at the moment, but Bez has been so kind to me, offering me a place to train for free until I get myself back in my feet, I'm so grateful to him.
11th February 2019
I would have no hesitation recomending Alex as a Personal Trainer. Having struggled to get enthused about excercise and strugling to stick to the discipline of regular workouts, I have now dropped from 24% to 12% body fat, track what eat daily, drink less alcohol, eat way less fast food, and feel much much healthier and better all round. I can also keep up with anything my two sons ask me to do with them. None of this would have happened if i hadnt signed on with Alex. Yes its very hard work, but with Alex it becomes enjoyable, rewarding and, most importantly, sustainable.
7th January 2019
Only started last week but I'm already loving this place. The detail that is put into each member is beyond anything I've had anywhere else and I've been a member of quiet a few gyms over the years!
Looking forward to seeing what the future brings.
6th January 2019
Awsome gym. Fantastic equipment. Very friendly and professional staff. A nice enjoyable atmosphere
4th January 2019
If your thinking about signing up to a gym this year just take a second to look at this gym it's not the biggest gym but it has everything you need and if your a person that gets anxious about going to the gym like I was myself, this place is warm and welcoming and if you get stuck with anything Alex is always happy to help I've been training with Alex now for just up to two year and I've learnt so much from him and has helped me achieve goals I've never thought I'd achieve especially having trouble with my leg having a club foot I thought I wouldn't ever get to lift heavy weights or any for that matter he's not only a great PT and awesome at what he does but he's also become a great friend to of mine.
22nd December 2018
Combat Fuel Fitness is a really clean, tidy and nice little gym and has a great atmosphere. Alex is really helpful and knows what he's talking about, always love having a good laugh with him, a very funny bloke.
22nd December 2018
Top bloke, really helpful and understanding, definitely more of a friend than a pt.
21st December 2018
As someone who used to hate the gym, never did I think going to the gym would turn into one of the highlights of my week. Fantastic gym with great equipment and perfect environment to push yourself. Alex tailors your programme to whatever your needs are and truly helps you meet and exceed your goals.
21st December 2018
Combat Fuel Fitness gym is clean, well maintained and the atmosphere is amazing as well as having a wide range of equipment which is all you need to train.
I suffer from anxiety and panic disorder but I feel completely comfortable in combat fuel fitness's gym.
Alex the owner is a very approachable person and he has vast amounts of knowledge about personal training, if I need some advice about training or just a general chat he's willing to listen and offer advice.
I highly recommend that anyone who is thinking of starting the gym or is looking for a change to check out this awesome gym.
17th December 2018
Combat Fuel Fitness offers a great gym atmosphere and the right knowledge and expertise to help you improve you. The gym is warm, clean and kit is excellent. Other members are friendly and will offer help if you want it. This place will grow and with direction and motivation it will help you grow also. Great independent supplement range too, and great to know this business helps support our veterans.
30th November 2018
I started with Alex, back in August, and I can honestly say that I would happily have him over any other Personal Trainer in the world. The way he actually makes you feel welcome no matter of where you are in your fitness journey whether that be as a complete novice or a avid gym goer.
The results I have seen in myself in this short space of time is amazing, I can't wait for my training sessions each week, even though he really puts you through your paces. But I wouldn't want to train any other way.
4th October 2018
I started with Alex in February this year after being recommended by my wife. I have asthma and a foot injury, but within ten weeks of starting with Alex, I had stopped using my inhaler. I would recommend Alex to anybody who is thinking of wanting a PT, as he has made me feel fitter and stronger to the point that I go three times a week now and I feel better for it.
26th July 2018
After years of thinking I was too old to go to a gym (and far too embarrassed too) my daughter bought me 10 x sessions with Alex for Mother's Day. I was nervous going to the gym the first time and meeting Alex but I shouldn't have been - Alex immediately put me at ease.
After my first session I thought - mmmmm I'm not sweaty or particularly hot - is this going to work for me. 2 days later I was very stiff and aching - obviously it had done some good. I am now 4 sets of 10 sessions in with Alex and am about to sign up for my 5th.
Alex is amazing - he pushes me to my limit and beyond - with safety, knowledge and encouragement. We have a good laugh, but he won't let me get away without putting in the maximum effort.
I have recently been ill, and Alex has been very caring and understanding - easing me gently back into the swing of things.
I have seen fabulous results in such a short time - I would definitely recommend Alex as a Personal Trainer to anyone, of any age, who is looking to train - he is the ultimate professional.
My husband has now signed up with Alex too and we are both losing weight and more importantly inches together. Little bit of competition never hurt anyone!!
I never thought I would look forward to exercise, but I now do - the hardest part is walking out of the front door.
Thank you so much Alex - looking forward to the next stage of my training starting next week :) :) :)
5th June 2018
Very good PT, pushes you to the max to ensure you achieve your goals. Sets up nutritional plans and makes sure you follow them. Gives out of gym training where required to make sure I'm doing what needs to be done to hit my goals and improve my general fitness in every way possible. Highly recommend to everyone.
15th May 2018
Alex is a very dedicated and knowledgeable personal trainer who genuinely wants to see you achieve your goals. He knows how to get fantastic results and is a great motivator.
8th May 2018
Alex is great. Always works me really hard and pushes me to my limits all while having a laugh. Really enjoy our sessions.
8th April 2018
Alex is a great personal trainer! Been training with him since the start of the year. We have a good laugh and he makes working out fun! He pushes me much further than I would push myself which is what I needed. Never thought I would be the sort of girl that looks forward to doing exercise, but because of Alex I am.
28th February 2018
I have been training with Alex for about 8 months. I also was never one for the gym, but, Alex as made each session detailed to what i could do and as continued to push me to new levels. He is dedicated, professional, enthusiastic and most of all encouraging. I'm so glad that I was introduced to Alex. Look forward to the next 8 months
12th January 2018
I've been training with Alex now for 2 months I'm seeing real results and on track to get back into shape. It's great to be pushed hard and beyond boundaries I thought wouldn't be possible. It's great to see changes and keep pushing my physical boundary with someone who clearly knows his stuff.
3rd December 2017
Alex is extremely knowledgeable, not just with exercise but with how the body is composed, nutrition and has the ability to push you further than you would ever push yourself. I'd never set foot in a gym before meeting Alex and he instantly puts you at ease and encourages you right from the start. Every trip to the gym was an enjoyment.
30th November 2017
Most knowledgeable PT I've worked with, any questions with training or diet Alex will always give the best answer.
27th November 2017
I saw Alex's post on fb that he had openings for new clients. I am no gym bunny by any means !!, but i haven't looked back since 10th October. I love every session ( the rowing machine is not my friend), but i will not let it defeat me. Alex is always there to push you to your limits, every session is different no reason to get bored. Alex has taught me in this short time not to put myself down and anything is possible. Really even if your unsure speak to Alex he really can help and give you advice.
17th October 2017
I've been training with Alex since April and I've enjoyed every minute of it. I'd been doing lots of cardio for a number of years but I wanted to change things up and start introducing weights to my fitness regime. I tried going it alone in the gym, but I didn't have the confidence or self-discipline and I kept injuring myself because I wasn't using the right technique. I decided to look for a personal trainer and searched for recommendations online. Alex kept popping up and I was impressed with his reviews and the progress his clients were making.
Alex's knowledge and expertise is vast. He keeps our sessions varied and so they never become tedious. I've found sessions with Alex to be both motivating and challenging; I'm always buzzing afterwards and it's satisfying to see and feel the progress I'm making.
28th September 2017
Training with Alex has not only been an improvement to my fitness but also a pleasure. In the last few months, with guidance and direction my size, strength and overall fitness has increased at an unprecedented rate compared to my efforts independently.
Alex will work you hard, but no harder than you can take, and the banter and humour is a good laugh. His knowledge of the anatomy and techniques mean you get tailored training specific to your needs. Highly recommend.
29th August 2017
Alex is a great personal trainer, he has given me the confidence to believe I can achieve the best possible results, my body shape has changed significantly since starting with him. My health has improved and my weight has gone down. He is the best at what he does!
29th August 2017
Absolutely awesome trainer, lots of experience and knowledge. A good friendly guy who will help you achieve your goals and more. Love going to the gym with Alex, would always highly recommend him.
28th July 2017
To be honest, I wasn't looking for any sort of exercise - let alone a personal trainer - when Alex's posts kept popping up on Facebook. The thought of approaching a young, clearly well trained guy, was quite frankly embarrassing. After the fourth or so post I realised that there were clients from all walks of life with great results. They all seemed happy and hadn't run off so I thought 'what's the worst that can happen?' and sent a message.
It went something like this:
'...I could well be your most hopeless case yet... I am overweight, have been for a long time and am totally disillusioned with trying to lose weight. I've tried everything, I've given up everything, from diets to exercises. I don't like any kind of exercise, I'm lazy and find all sorts of excuses not to do any... I'm terribly impatient and don't like the fact it's going to take hard work and dedication to get to where I want to get...'
This sounds very dramatic but that's how I truly felt. I think it's safe to say I was very depressed and frustrated.
To my surprise he didn't turn me away, in the contrary.
Alex is an extremely professional person, taking pride in what he does and how he does it. He made me feel comfortable from the very first session and knows exactly what I can and can't do now and so he won't ever let me get away with slacking.
Don't get me wrong, it's been hard work at times and a fair amount of moaning, huffing and puffing has passed my lips (it just gets ignored) but it's THAT proverbial kick that has driven me to achieve and push for more.
Alex's attention to detail is second to none, no day is ever the same, we have a fair amount of banter and not once have I felt the urge to make an excuse for not turning up. For the first time I love to exercise and I am extremely proud of what i have achieved in the last 3 months: 6" loss round the waste and 21.3lb loss in weight.
Not to forget, I can now fit in a seat on a plane without getting stuck, I feel happier and healthier and am ready for the next 3 months.
Thank you Alex, for proving to me that it can be done.
7th July 2017
I can't recommend Alex highly enough. He's always friendly, polite and is very knowledgable and always happy to explain why you're doing what you're doing instead of just telling you to get on with it.
I was very pleased with my results after just 12 weeks
27th June 2017
I have struggled with my weight for years and have tried many different things in order to lose weight. Alex differs the personal training sessions each time in order to push me to what I can do not what I think I can do. Each session is hard but rewarding by the end of the week, regardless of if I can walk after a session...jelly legs doesn't cover it. But after 2 months I am still enjoying the sessions, being pushed to work hard to see results.... I can now no longer see my belly over my boobs when I look down.!! Steady and slowly results for me with my other health problems but every inch counts.
19th May 2017
I have trained for 6 weeks with Alex. Each session has been varied, informed and interesting - testing me in different ways and I have benefited enormously in general fitness, muscle gain and fat loss. I would definitely recommend him and I will be doing another course very soon.
18th May 2017
I was apprehensive about starting with a PT after suffering with back pain for many years and struggling to be pain free for any significant length of time, I didn't want someone who thought they could fix me overnight! I chose Alex as he's experienced in dealing with people with similar problems and has always been able to make our sessions interesting and varied despite back troubles.
Never have I had a boring session, Alex is always mixing it up and finding new ways to keep it interesting.
Our sessions are challenging but Alex knows my limits better than I do and I can honestly say that left to my own devices I wouldn't push myself half as hard! But it's paying off and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone!
13th April 2017
Thought I would put a few words down and thank Alex for his help, been suffering with Achillies Tendon problems which can't be cured but which were really affecting my training levels. Thought I would give it a go and booked a one to one session with the big fella, we talked through why and how it happened, he checked my mobility and range and came up with a plan, seems the problem was on a bigger scale and made me a daily program of exercise working the hamstrings and glutes. Well after years of getting nowhere with doctors and hospitals I now have less pain, more mobility, back lifting weights and starting to do short runs again, BIG thank you Alex so pleased with the results of one lesson a real eye opener.
13th April 2017
I trained with Alex for a month and he was brilliant, I would recommend him to anyone. He's extremely knowledgeable and is a really great guy, a pleasure to work with.
17th March 2017
Probably one of the best decisions I've ever made was choosing Alex as my personal trainer. From my initial consultation and training session Alex has been extremely supportive, understanding and encouraging.
Alex is a very personable guy, yet extremely professional and knowledgeable. The training sessions have been varied and some what unpredictable, but they are always appropriately tailored depending on your capability at that point in time. Nothing goes unnoticed with Alex... he is definitely a stickler for technique and having the correct form during each and every exercise, which I believe has been one of the biggest contributing factors in achieving the results I have so far. After only 8 weeks I have definitely noticed a difference, not only in size and weight but with my self esteem and confidence.
I really cannot commend Alex enough for everything he has done for me so far... he has really motivated me in trying to achieve my goals, supporting and encouraging me every step of the way- making me stick at it, even when things have been tough (in and out of the gym).

I have been training with Alex for about 2 months now. I have Polymyositis, which is an auto immune illness that destroys muscle tissue.
Alex devised a personalised training programme for me to strengthen and tone my muscles. Alex takes great care to ensure that I experience the full benefit of weight training without causing further damage to my muscles and health in general.
I have lost 14lbs since I started training with Alex and I can already see an improvement in my body shape, especially in my problem areas, which are my hips, thighs and stomach.
I highly recommend Alex to anyone who has specific training requirements due to illness and/or disabilities who would like to lose weight, improve their overall fitness, lose fat, build muscle and tone up.
I also think that Alex's rates are very competitive taking into consideration the thought, effort and support he provides.
Thank you Alex, you rule!

I have undertaken the 12 week transformation and dropped 10.8 kg in weight and lost 14% of my body fat. I'm overwhelmingly pleased with results so far and it has made a huge difference to me for many reasons! During training Alex is encouraging, pushes you to your best and is extremely conscientious about technique. My clothes have had to be changed. Strength has been steadily increasing and have managed to nab a couple of spots on the leader board. I'll be looking forward to the progress to come and getting my first pull up.

It's only been a few weeks since I met Alex and started on the journey of getting healthier and also getting some strength back in my old legs.
All I can say is Alex is a great coach, he pushes me and gives great advice on the technique of each exercise and also nutrition.
Having not been near a gym for years he really put me at ease.
If you're undecided about getting a personal coach then let me make your decision easy... contact Alex, he is a top guy and inspires me to keep on my journey.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all you have done to help me reach my goals. To lose 6 kg plus and body fat coming down 14% I feel a better person.
I would certainly recommend your PT Skills to anyone, your army training and humour also helps, it has been worth every penny to me.
Keep up the good work.

First and foremost Alex is a top chap who is very friendly, professional and attentive to your needs and requirements, and I feel I've made a great friend. I've been training a while, but found my progress wasn't what it was. With the help of Alex we set clear defined goals and the way to achieve them. Over the course of 3 months I smashed my goals losing 6% body fat whilst getting stronger in the process. I have a 4 month son, so it's tough, however with Alex's guidance and understanding we are continuing to hit new heights. Top work and thanks very much. Onwards and upwards!

Previously always struggled to stick it out at the gym for more then a couple months, but with the friendly approach and thorough thought out training sessions provided by Alex it has been easier then ever to stick to it and commit myself to working towards my goals. Highly recommended

Really supportive personal trainer, he helps you reach better results and push yourself further. The sessions feel hard work but it's done with a laugh to make you feel more secure. He is very professional and has helped me use correct form. I would recommend to anyone.

Having trained for a while solo, and to be honest having not made any real progress for a long time I thought I'd give AAB a try. Alex set me a new tailored exercise and nutrition program every fortnight for 12 weeks. From Alex's advice I soon realised how far off the mark I'd been in my previous training and particularly my nutrition. In the 12 weeks I've enjoyed my training, dropped 3% body fat, (to a lean 11.85% ) and gained 2kg of lean muscle at the same time! Thanks Alex.

Alex is an amazing personal trainer. I was so nervous about going for my first session, I almost quit before I had even started. I now absolutely love it. We do different exercises each time, there is lots of variety which keeps the sessions fun. Alex is really supportive and motivates me to keep going when I feel like giving up. I'm excited to see the change in my body shape and my fitness as the sessions go on. If you are looking to change the way you feel about yourself I would definitely recommend you get in touch with Alex.

Really knows what he is talking about, his previous military experience means he takes no prisoners lol but knows how to build someone up well worth the money.

Trained with Alex a lot in the Army, he really knows his stuff. Would highly recommend him. Its a small price to pay for the amount of Knowledge you will receive from him, top bloke.

Great personal trainer!
Really respectful of what you can and can't do! Encourages to lift appropriate weights with correct form as opposed to going stupid heavy and hurting yourself with poor form. At the same time pushes you to your absolute limits! You will notice a difference in yourself and your approach to training after just a few sessions.
Would highly recommend!

I personally trained with Alex for a few months, I broke so many of my PB,s with his tuition and motivation.
Whether you want strength or size gains or health and diet advice, young or old, Alex is your man!

Couldn't recommend him enough!
