Pauline Owen - 61

"Chris makes fitness achievable, training sessions (individual or small group) are enjoyable yet challenging, pushing me to the limit. Muscle tone and core strength has developed significantly, enabling progress to be felt very quickly. Advice on lifestyle and diet together with a workout for the gym helped increase my confidence and along the way he corrected techniques to avoid injury!

Chris has a positive attitude and his patience enabled me to feel good about myself, working on weaknesses as well as strengths. Im feeling fit and feeling great"




Christine  Sekhri

Chris has trained me since 2007 and I have always found the training to be very enjoyable. During this period, I have run 3 ultra marathons and 2 full marathons and Chris’s training has helped me achieve a personal best. The training has always been balanced and well thought through, when I got injured, Chris helped extensively with his knowledge on rehab and conditioning, I was fit in no time! I always look forward to training with Chris.

Sylvia is absolutely inspirational! Her classes are so much fun that I don’t even notice the calories burning away! I have been privileged enough to attend her classes for a few years now and can’t believe how much fitter I am as a result! Thanks so much Sylvia you’re a star!

"An Inspirational Teacher and Motivator"

I had said last year that I would send you a message Sylvia just to say how brilliant and inspirational I found your teaching methods when I attended your Zumba classes last year. Thank you so much for making such an impression as an inspirational and motivational teacher that I just have to come back. Gill x

The website says ‘be who you want to be’ and that’s exactly what Chris delivers. I had a clear vision of what I wanted to attain and straight away I felt that Chris understood my goals and always refers to them during our training sessions. A very likeable individual, he has a unique ability to push me to my limits whilst maintaining an energy and level of interest. Training is never monotonous, that’s for sure. Advice on diet, posture and attitude is all part of the service. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.


Anne Senior - 64


"Chris has been my personal trainer for around since 2007. He is easy to get on with, enthusiastic and a positive inspiration when it comes to working out. I usually see him twice a week and the sessions are varied and interesting and I feel much fitter and healthier as a result. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others."

"Sylvia is my dance instructor for Zumba classes in Leeds. Every lesson has been enjoyable and is a great way to workout. You can learn at your own pace, so it would be ideal for beginners as well as advanced and would suit all ages. The classes are well attended and everyone is very friendly."


Paul Sharpe - 17

"I started training with Chris as a complete beginner to boxing, his patience and knowledge has enabled me to become fitter than ever before. As well as improving my fitness and self confidence Chris has without doubt taught me the art of boxing and acquitted me with the skills and knowledge that I would never thought possible. His great attitude to training enables me to push my body to the limit in a safe and controlled manner. I am delighted with the progress I have made and I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to achieve there goals and aspirations."
