We Understand How You feel

Getting in shape and staying in shape isn’t easy. In fact, for the majority of us it’s hard! And what makes it even harder is feeling like you need to already be in shape just to join many fitness programmes out there – or feeling like you don’t fit in when you finally do get there. How are you ever going to be consistent enough with your fitness to see the changes you want if you feel uncomfortable all the time? Or if you have no idea what to do in the gym to get you where you want to be.

“It always seems impossible until it's done.”

- Nelson Mandella -

The best way to get started is to book a free 30 minute consultation so you can come and meet us in person, discuss what we do, what we don’t do, how things work and to find something to suit you. If after the consultation you decide to do something with us, we will support you and look after you on your journey. On the other hand, if at the end of the consultation you decide that for some reason it is not for you, that is no problem at all. We only work with clients who are keen to work with us.

“The only way to predict the future is to create it.”

- Abraham Lincoln - 

When you are ready to create a future for yourself that's full of energy, confidence and vitality, Podfit will guide you all the way.

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!

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.

The Podfit philosophy and the four pillars of health

Whereas some of the immediate results of starting our programme will be improved energy, increased fitness and rapid weight loss, we deliver a much longer-term solution.  It is a programme of study, where you will learn to master the 4 pillars of health (movement, nutrition, mindset and relaxation), so that the results you get are long lasting and that you continue to look and feel healthier than ever.

Our programmes are not a quick fix.  We are tired of the fitness industry offering you dramatic quick fix solutions: You know deep down that they do not work in the long term and sooner or later they will bring you back to this point, looking for something that works for you permanently.  Our programme will give you:

  • A smaller waist
  • Firmer arms, legs and thighs
  • Faster metabolism to burn more fat at rest
  • Increased muscle tone and flexibility
  • Better sleep
  • Greater confidence
  • Decreased stress
  • Look and feel better in your favourite clothes
  • Greatly improved posture
  • Better relaxation

The studio philosophy is to build pillar strength: hip, shoulder and core stability. We will teach you how to lift weights in a way that targets your core and your fitness. We will keep your body guessing to maximise results by giving you different phases of training, including a strength phase, an endurance phase and a speed and power phase. Each session has six elements and this type of  methodology is used to train global athletes. We have adapted it to work really well with busy professional people.

Our studio programmes are all underpinned with an online support programme, that consists of lifestyle courses and 28 day challenges.  These focus on the four pillars of health: movement, nutrition, mindset and relaxation. Our courses cover exercise, sleep, alcohol, sugar, food tracking, food planning, how to build lasting habits, and food knowledge and education.  We have several 28 day challenges, like the one on this page, all geared to help you implement courses in a practical way, so that you are really successful with lifestyle change.

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,

I've finally found and place full of friendly and motivating people

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
