Two and a half years ago I was hospitalised after contracting a rare tropical disease which left me with damaged lungs. I slipped into a lazy lifestyle and convinced myself I didn’t need to do much exercise. I wasn’t careful about what I ate and consequently got myself into pretty bad shape.
In October 2014 I decided enough was enough. I had heard good things about Sterne Performance and decided to go for an introductory session with Michael. Knowing that I had zero will power or motivation to give myself the kick up the ass that I needed I thought personal training was the only solution. I was right!
I’m 15 weeks into my sessions with Michael and I can honestly say he’s changed my life. I am strong, fit and so much more confident. He has made me feel proud of my achievements and has completely transformed the way I think about exercise and diet.
Not only have I seen a huge physical difference, I am a happier and more energised person. I honestly can’t believe how far I’ve come with Michael’s guidance and support.
His approach is always supportive and well informed. I can always rely on Michael to push me but I know that he understands my limits better than I do! I have gone from being unable to do 2 mins on the running machine to now running 4 miles 3 times a week and lifting weights I could have only dreamed of.
If you are looking for someone who can give you not only a great one on one session in the gym but also guidance and help with diet and lifestyle changes to achieve whatever your goals are, Michael is the PT for you. I can’t thank him enough for what he’s done for me.

I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into when I signed up with Mike and at 45 thought I was probably beyond hope! However 6 months later I am fitter than I probably have ever been, have more energy and have significantly changed my body shape reducing my body fat to 21%. Mike is always enthusiastic and always has a smile on his face even during those sessions when I wasn’t very motivated. The sessions were hugely varied so I didn’t get bored and Mike ensured that the level was upped each week to push me a little further. His encouragement pushed me beyond what I thought I could achieve but I never felt I was being made to do something I didn’t want to do. The additional support with my diet and a variety of gym programmes for when I worked out on my own helped us reach our goal! Thanks to Mike I now enjoy exercising and I have confidence in the gym to use equipment I would never have gone near in the past. Several of my friends have commented that they need a Mike in their life too!
