Personal Training

For anyone needing discipline and motivation to achieve your desired results a Personal Trainer will ensure you do. At Fitness By Design we have two private personal training rooms, air conditioned and very well equipped to give you unlimited variety in your workouts and now even include the latest pro5 power plates used by celebrities like Madonna and professional sports atheletes for that accelerated path to the toned body we all desire. All staff at Fitness By Design have to be highly qualified and affiliated to REPS (The Register of Exercise Professionals). Virtually all are level 3 (the highest level) Personal Trainers so you can choose a male or female Personal Trainer of your choice. All are qualified to give nutritional advice and can help you rehabilitate from injuries. Some are qualified with GP referral and have sports massage therapy certificates. You really are in safe hands with us to help you every step of the way. We have more highly qualified staff than any other Health and Fitness Club within 30 miles.

Prices range from £35 - £40 per hour which can be shared with another person if you choose.
