Welcome to Podfit Personal Training: How can we guide you?

Transform Your Fitness, Energy, Shape and Wellbeing

At Podfit Personal Training, we have created a non-intimidating and encouraging community of members and coaches that will make your training experience enjoyable and will support you to achieve long-lasting health and fitness results.

1-2-1 Training Programme

Train in your own fully equipped private training zone (Covid safety partitioned) and learn how to lift weights safely, in a way that targets your core and your fitness. Never wait for equipment, or feel intimidated by an overcrowded gym floor, or feel vunerable to catching Covid-19.

Small Group Training

Our small group sessions never exceed the 1:4 ratio. We incorporate all of the features you would expect from a traditional 1-2-1 approach with an additional dose of motivation from like-minded people within your training session. You follow a structured plan, personalised to you and receive supportive coaching and guidance through every step of the way.

Virtual Training & Online Support

Train with us virtually via Zoom either 1-2-1 or in a group and get all the benefits of exercise with an expert training team.

Our online programme will give you all the resources and knowledge you need to support your studio sessions, to make sure we guide you every step of the way.  This programme also works really well purely as an online programme, so you can follow along at home, without having to come to the studio, if that's what you prefer.

Our studio in high demand because its perfect for socially distanced training,  and we have a proven track record of helping people to get into great shape.

Matt Parker


Matt lost over 30 Kg and ran a marathon within 6 months of joining

Life changing experience! I've gone from couch potato to running a marathon in less than 6 months, dropping 5 stone in the process! Every session is different and fun, and tailored individually to your needs, I saw an add on Facebook and was a bit sceptical but after meeting the guys and doing a taster session it was a no brainer!! There is a wealth of expertise between the trainers and some great equipment. Podfit has helped me make lifestyle changes that are here to stay! Thank you Jack, Neil and the podfit family you really have changed my life!

New to Personal Training

Alex encourages me and pushes me (in a nice way)

I have been a member at other gyms before but I soon got bored and never pushed myself and soon gave up.  This is the first time I have had a personal trainer and would highly recommend it. Alex encourages me and pushes me ( in a nice way ) that bit further and because of this and discussing food and meal plans I am seeing results in my body shape as well as losing weight which is fantastic.
I cannot thank Podfit and Alex enough for encouraging and helping me with my weight loss and fitness journey.

You don't have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great.

This is so much more than a gym

David is a great personal trainer. He tailors the sessions to be able to challenge me but also to increase my confidence in my own ability. I would highly recommend Podfit and feel very comfortable there, everyone is so friendly. This is so much more than a gym, David advises on diet and lifestyle choices and helps me set challenging goals that I would never have even thought about doing on my own,

Having put off getting into shape for many years I’ve finally found a place full of friendly and motivating people to guide and encourage me through, what turns out to be, a fun process. I’d heartily recommend anyone who wants to improve their fitness, diet or general strength to get themselves along to PodFit. You won’t regret it!!

I see muslce tone in places I didn't know I had!

Since starting at Podfit 5 months ago I have seen a big difference in myself. I see muscle tone in places I didn't know I had muscles lol, I definitely feel fitter and stronger, my inner confidence has grown too. Never liked the thought of going to the gym before as I felt intimidated, Podfit is perfect, the trainers are all great and they set fitness session for each individual. I would highly recommend Podfit to everyone whatever your goal is
