A strong core is as essential part of living a healthy, injury and pain free life. Developing core strength is not about how many sit ups you can do, it;s not even just about how long you can maintain a plank for. A strong core is developed through a combination of multi-joint movement patterns and isolated core static holds. Many people don’t even know how to activate the core, let alone activate it naturally at the times when they need it most. We are experts in core development and if you have ever suffered with back pain, it is even more important to build a strong core, now.

I’ve been training with Podfit for almost five months, in that time I have managed to lose almost six stone, which is absolutely mind blowing for me. I never thought in a million years that was even possible.Huw: Fat Loss
So is it working – hell yes!! I’ve lost over 2.5 stone already (only 1.5 to go), I’ve nearly halved the insulin I’m taking for the diabetes and I’ve just bought a pair of jeans 6” less than before I started – happy days.Andrew: Diabetes Management
Neil has worked with the necessary patience throughout and gave me a variety of different exercises that I could work with between sessions. After a few months of rehab, my knee is now back to the point where I can squat and deadlift without pain!David: Rehab
I was introduced to Podfit by a friend of mine where I had seen the great results
he had achieved. I had become seriously over-weight and despite really trying to
increase my exercise was struggling to shift any weight through a combination of
the exercise I was doing and also not managing the diabetes well so that every
time I was exercising hard I was then having to massively eat to recover sugar
levels and undo any good I was achieving.
After an initial consultation where Neil proved an excellent listener and
motivator, I have been assigned to Tom and am now about 3 months in to my 6
month programme. I like to think of Tom as a smiling assassin – No two training
sessions are ever the same, the motivation is excellent and everything he asks is
always delivered with a calm smile before I then embark on achieving things
have had great support with respect to diet – I’m now on my second diet plan
and it keeps evolving to ensure I’m managing the diabetes, getting the right foods
and all contributing to what I truly feel will be a lasting change. I’ve found that all
this coupled with my own motivation which has gone through the roof with the
confidence in the results has transformed my energy levels – and as well as my
sessions at Podfit I’m also now doing exercise most days by supporting the
programme with swimming and running.
So is it working – hell yes!! I’ve lost over 2.5 stone already (only 1.5 to go), I’ve
nearly halved the insulin I’m taking for the diabetes and I’ve just bought a pair of
jeans 6” less than before I started – happy days. I really recommend Tom and
Neil has a great team and I am looking forward to the next few months to continue this journey.Andrew
I’ve been going to the gym and lifting weights for over 15 years, but recently developed trouble with me knee, which stemmed from a muscle imbalance. While working in York I was recommended Podfit by a friend. I had a chat with Neil, explaining my situation to him, and what I wanted from the sessions; rehab the knee before progressing to a full weight-training programme again. The rehab has been a slow, frustrating process as expected. However, Neil has worked with the necessary patience throughout and gave me a variety of different exercises that I could work with between sessions. After a few months of rehab, my knee is now back to the point where I can squat and deadlift without pain! I’m now able to progress onto a full training programme, all the while continuing with the exercises to further rectify the muscle imbalance. I really enjoy the environment in Podfit, away from the usual gym “grunters”, and it’s really reinvigorated my training. The range of equipment in the gym is great, and it’s a comfortable environment to train in. I’m looking forward to progressing over the next few months!David
PT Client: Rehab
Neil has been my Personal Trainer for well over 2 years. I aim to have two PT sessions a week as part of my fitness programme, as well as daily exercises at home. My aim is to gain fitness and build muscle. The thought of using a large gym always put me off exercising, but Podfit offers the perfect surroundings for the nervous beginner. Not only has my physical finess improved, but my mental attitude has changed. I am more positive and always finish a PT session with a feeling of well being. Changes in my diet have also helped my fitness levels. Podfit offers the perfect package and I have no problem recommending Neil and his team. A highly professional service.Richard
I’ve been with Podfit a few years now. After every PT session I always feel I’ve achieved something positive. I never think I’ve wasted my time. Neil is significantly better than any of the PT’s I’ve had before. He treats me like an adult, making sure I have good form and motivates me to achieve the results I want. If I get it wrong he’s there to show me how to do it right but never makes me feel stupid. He’s professional 100% of the time. So different to the ones in the big commercial gyms: more interested in themselves and showing off to the ladies. And for weight loss Neil has given me a brilliant food plan. In just 8 weeks I’ve lost a stone, and not far off my weight loss target without any gimmicky diet fads. Just good sensible eating that works, and is enjoyable. I don’t even feel like I’m on a diet. And my belt now keeps my trousers up instead of keeping the seams together. Since going to Podfit my confidence in what I can achieve has improved so much. For the first time in ages I’m looking forward to a beach holiday. I’d recommend Podfit to anyone. The coffee’s excellent too!Jonathan
- I recently visited Yorkshire for a period of 3 weeks for a work project. I wanted to find a Personal Trainer and a gym that could temporarily replace the type of training that I was used to in London. Following an initial consultation, Neil Owens and the other staff at Podfit were able to adapt very quickly and created a training program that was perfectly suited to my needs. Neil proved to be an excellent Personal Trainer, offering expertise and motivation, whilst also being able to identify the type of training that I wanted to do. The Podfit gym is well appointed in the centre of York and well equipped.Aly Flind: Cowboy Films

I broke my leg in a bad cycling accident in September 2013. After 4 months of enforced rest, with little exercise and no weight bearing, I had a difficult balance of hopes and fears; hopes for a speedy recovery and a return to cycling, and fears of doing too much to the leg where I had considerable pain in the joints.
After a recommendation from a good friend, I made an appointment to see Neil Owens at Podfit, the first time I had felt the need to work with a personal trainer. Neil earned trust and respect immediately by listening carefully to the facts of the accident and convalescence, the conflicting feelings I had about recovery, and then outlining a plan with some clear goals and expectations.
After seven weeks, we have already reached my twelve week target.
One of the most challenging aspects of rehabilitation from a serious injury is the ability to remain objective; to stay motivated when you feel you are taking two steps back for every one you take forward, but also to pull back when you are pushing too hard and risking setback or injury. Neil has been great at providing motivation, energy and advice throughout the process. The variety of exercises has kept the process interesting and fresh, and looking forward to each new session.
In addition to his strength and conditioning programme, Neil has educated me on how to eat sensibly and lose weight. This has included a thorough nutritional consultation and subsequent plan (I had been living in a hotel for the first 4 weeks of my eating plan) and I have lost almost two stones in weight.
The Podfit Methodology is extremely professional and thorough, from consultation to delivery and all of my workouts and target are tracked digitally on a very clever online programme, so we can how my workouts are improving.
I have already gained the necessary confidence in myself to sign up to two, 100 mile plus sportive cycles, one in York and the other around lake Geneva. I am totally confident in the expectation that Neil will have me in great shape, mentally and physically. I would recommend Podfit to anyone wanting or needing to challenge themselves to make real improvements in health and fitness.Peter
I’ve been training with Podfit for almost five months, in that time I have managed to lose almost six stone, which is absolutely mind blowing for me. I never thought in a million years that was even possible.I have seen massive improvements to my lifestyle, diet, behaviour and confidence and I have absolutely loved every session. My training sessions they have become a part of my life and who I am: I wouldn’t have thought I would be at the gym more than once in a blue moon, but I go twice a week, every week, despite lots of other commitments. The gym has given me a lot of confidence in other areas of life. Non of this would have been possible with out the inspiration and motivation Podfit gives me.Huw
