“I noticed that rather than the lethargy I used to get around that time of the day, going into the studio after my workout left me buzzing.”

What struck me first was the intensity of the training. My trainer Mark Woodcock had me doing endless circuits and sprints. I soon realised that I was going to have to change my lifestyle if I wanted to succeed. I’m on the radio in the afternoons and I noticed that rather than the lethargy I used to get around that time of the day, going into the studio after my workout left me buzzing. I felt more organised and my work improved as a result. I’m going to keep my targets interesting – just looking in the mirror isn’t enough anymore thanks to Mark Woodcock.

“I’ve also been doing boxing with Mark. I love it! You can get all of your aggression out and it strengthens your arms too. What a bonus!”

When Jade Goody left the Big Brother House, she hired a personal fitness trainer to whip her back to a svelte size 10. However two years on and two children later, for Jade it was a simple decision to find a fitness trainer again... My trainer is Mark Woodcock and he’s been great at setting me a routine to lose weight. I’ve really enjoyed the circuit training that Mark has had me doing. When you’re doing circuits you’re constantly moving and challenging yourself and you don’t have time to get bored or think about anything else. I’ve also been doing boxing with Mark. I love it! You can get all of your aggression out and it strengthens your arms too. What a bonus!

“Mark provided me with an excellent workout regime and kept me constantly motivated… I always felt comfortable and felt better about myself from the get go… He is a great trainer!”

I've always been insecure about my weight and the way I looked and decided I wanted to make a change. I never really liked sports and had no idea what exercises I should be doing at the gym so I decided to hire a personal trainer and after my initial consultation with Mark I'm so glad that I did. He provided me with an excellent workout regime and kept me constantly motivated throughout the summer.. I always felt comfortable and felt better about myself from the get go. Not only is he a great trainer, he's also become my friend and at times therapist, as well as dealing with all of my moaning about sit ups like a true gentleman!

“Mark has a natural ability to make you want to keep pushing yourself.”

Although personal fitness training sessions with Mark are physically tough, he definitely doesn't fit the archaic ‘no pain, no gain’ personal fitness trainer cliché. Instead Mark has a natural ability to make you want to keep pushing yourself, and calmly instills a firm belief in you that you can. Working with Mark was always enjoyable, the training schedule he devised was spot on and the fitness gains were well beyond my expectations.

“Mark is more than just a fitness trainer, he is also able to advise on dietary needs and weight loss programs.”

We have really appreciated everything Mark has done for us – it has improved individual fitness levels and awareness, and been a great team bonding exercise. Mark is very professional and always makes the session good fun with plenty of friendly competition to stretch everyone’s fitness levels. He is very knowledgeable on nutrition and science behind fitness training which makes every session very educational and interesting. Mark is more than just a fitness trainer, he is also able to advise on dietary needs and weight loss programs. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone considering making the move to take on a personal trainer. He is very respectable, polite and never late.

“Initially I had decided that I only wanted to work with a female, but after speaking to Mark on the phone, he put me completely at ease.”

I had been unhappy with my body for a while and knew that I needed to do something about it. After searching on the internet I found Mark's website and felt myself drawn to phoning him. Initially I had decided that I only wanted to work with a female (due to feeling a little intimidated by the thought of working out with a male), but after speaking to Mark on the phone, he put me completely at ease and before I knew it I had booked a consultation. Mark is a really lovely person who just wants to help you achieve your goals. He works at the pace which is right for you, constructing a personalised fitness and healthy eating plan. I have just finished a block of twelve sessions and feel so much better about myself. I am definitely going to continue the good routines Mark has put in place. If you are thinking about starting - go for it! You will be in really safe hands.

“Mark has been instrumental in providing a tailored program to build up my strength, fitness and body shape!”

I chose Mark as my personal fitness trainer 6 months ago (May 2013) as I prepared for a challenge to row across the Atlantic Ocean. This was an excellent choice as Mark has been instrumental in providing a tailored program to build up the strength, fitness and body shape needed for this type of physical challenge. This has not only included a variety of challenging (and fun) personal training sessions, but a structured weights program and diet regime. Mark is a personal trainer of the highest calibre, he clearly enjoys what he does, and his natural energy and enthusiasm for helping people achieve their personal fitness goals is a great motivator.
