See what some of my clients have to say.
What I really love about my sessions with Siobhan is the variety. I never get bored, I always feel challenged and I always leave with a sense of achievement.
I made the decision 18 months ago to really address my health and fitness and Siobhan has played a massive part in motivating me to push myself physically! I love the way my body has started to change and although I know it's going to take me time to get where I want to be, I really feel inspired and empowered to get there!
Before starting with Siobhan I wouldn't have considered myself the typical sort of individual for personal training, but what I've come to realise is that actually the clients of personal trainers are a massively varied bunch! My advice if you aren't sure it's for you, is just do it; give it a try to see how you feel.
I can honestly say it's the best decision I ever made for my fitness! It's also had a big impact on my life in general, giving me confidence and improving my mood, something that I hadn't even considered would happen to me and which has been a hugely unexpected bonus!!
I have been training with Siobhan for over 3 years and I am not posting ‘before and after’ pictures because my body image is not why I see Siobhan, although my body has changed for the better undoubtedly. My confidence in my physical abilities have improved markedly and I know I can do more than I would ever have believed possible. This is down to Siobhan's individual, careful and focused approach.
The reason I see Siobhan is because I have a chronic neurological condition called Charcot Marie Tooth Type X. This means my balance is poor and my legs & arms don't work very well, and my legs often feel wobbly as if they could give way. Siobhan has a fantastic positive approach and yet is able to understand when you are struggling, and will always help motivate &support you. Siobhan is kind yet firm & focused, and always knows the best way forward for you as an individual.
I am an NHS Community Occupational Therapist and I know that the natural skills Siobhan has in motivating me, improving strength & stamina, and improving overall physical & mental health are really valuable.
Siobhan is non judgmental and although she has a dodgy taste in music, is sensitive to each individual clients needs and will adapt a program accordingly.
Siobhan gives solid nutrition advice and help with personalised meal plans - This often underpins why folks want to train and their personal physical goals.
Siobhan is positive and friendly and knowlegable and I would recommend her to the whole planet! Get off the sofa and get booked now.
Training with Siobhan has honestly been not only a physical journey, but a mental one as well. She offers all kinds of support, not only in my sessions but outside of those as well. She pushes me beyond any limit I thought I had in the gym, which is not only improving my body and fitness but my confidence within myself as well.
Every single session is different so I never get bored and working out never feels repetitive. She has really listened to my needs the and goals I want to achieve (my current mission being a Kardashian booty) and helps me continually push myself to achieve those goals. I have only been training with Siobhan for a couple of months but I already see the difference and look forward to seeing her every week.
She puts up with copious amounts of moaning and swearing, and I ALWAYS leave every session not being able to use that body part for a good 2 days!
She is now helping me with my diet as well as exercise, sharing her vast bag of tricks to help me shift this final half a stone.
I love training with Siobhan so much that I have now upped my sessions to two a week to train with a friend. She's not only great at what she does, but she's a top girl and a great friend as well.
I started training with Siobhan about 2 and a half years ago and came to her at a really low point in my life…
I'd gained a lot of weight and my confidence had hit rock bottom. I started avoiding nights out and the nights out I did go on I wore a kimono so not to have my arms out.
Initially I struggled with the eating plan but after my many conversations of "Why haven't I lost any weight?" and Siobhan replying "Doritos" I took on the eating plan, and my results, along with Siobhan's sessions transformed both my body and my confidence.
As for my sessions, I love the challenge of trying new things and gaining strength. I am doing things in the gym now that I never imagined I'd be able to achieve. 60kg deadlifts are a personal achievement of mine, Ab definition is definitely a close second!
I could never thank Siobhan enough for what she's done, and continues to do for me.
I began training with Siobhan in August 2014 after a 30 minute induction session convinced me that she could help me to achieve my goals of becoming stronger and fitter, whilst gaining a better body fat ratio. Prior to this I was a certified gym-phobe who was too shy and awkward to enter the free weights area, but working with Siobhan has given me the confidence to even brave the squat rack completely on my own.
I am not the easiest client to train as my confidence levels do fluctuate along with my exhaustion levels as I work 12.5 hour shifts including night duty. Nevertheless, Siobhan keeps me focused and for the first time in my adult life my weight hasn't yo-yo'd up and down, having lost a little over 2 stone.
I train in a ’Group Session’ alongside my husband, N, who takes his training to a whole other level. N competes in triathlons, cycling sportives and running events but Siobhan still manages to devise a program that pushes us both and meets our goals. I am constantly surprised that a 40 something like me who had never had a gym membership has achieved what I have but I am still eager to push myself further. Siobhan understands my capabilities and gives me the confidence to lift heavier where I would otherwise stay in my comfort zone.
I enjoy my chats with Siobhan as much as the training sessions and she keeps me motivated to continue and not fall into the trap of paying for a gym membership that I don’t use! I'm still aiming for that 100kg deadlift, and with Siobhan's encouragement I know I'll get there.
