Testimonials

Working with Paul at PD fitness has really improved my strength and balance and power over the last 2 years and it has been really welcoming and helps you keep motivated and towards your goals.

The services and personal training is second to none and it’s an amazing place to be and really good facilities to use that accommodates my needs as an up and coming Team GB athlete!

Daph Schrager

The whole Brady family have been members of PDFitness for many years and love the place for different reasons. I have been “beasted” by James Atwill on a weekly basis and achieved a level of fitness that I didn’t think possible, which has returned me to competitive hockey at international level and given me the confidence to push through several marathons, triathlons and even attempt an IronMan. As James says on a regular basis “there’s always more…” and he’s right!

Steve Brady

A good variety of fun classes, friendly welcoming staff. PT sessions with James (J2) are always hard but great fun and are helping me achieve my fitness and weight-loss goals.

Paula Webb

I highly recommend James Atwill and his awesome, but gruelling PT sessions which have helped me achieve my goal of a sub 20 minute 5k which I accomplished last year.

James has helped me for the last 18 months and I am always welcomed by the other PTs and I think the atmosphere here is great, along with excellent facilities too.

I am now, after 6 years, having a break from Triathlon and representing GB in my age group. Just for a year where my focus is on getting leaner, stronger, with a heavy focus on my nutrition, which will only help me when I come back to triathlon.

I am in no doubt James has some ‘lovely’ weight based sessions lined up for me when I start in September and will be just as tough as my cardio sessions were.

I have always struggled with maintaining a regular routine with exercise however I decided to give the gym one last shot. In my 50th year I realised I had to start building my strength and stamina to supplement my general fitness and well-being.

I have been a member of PD Fitness for five months and I have found the gym to be very friendly, calm and relaxed. I have engaged a personal trainer (James2) and I have been able to maintain regular weekly appointments and have seen fantastic results.

I have also joined in with the spin class which I am really enjoying. PD Fitness have worked wonders and I am looking forward to the next five months – thank you to James2 and the team for their motivation!

One morning aged 50 and a half I made myself walk into the gym I’d seen every time I buy the dog food. 4 months later, twice a week I’m still walking in that door.

I don’t skip in the door, won’t do classes or go it alone -but I will do as I’m told for an hour and leave light footed and happy.

Family, friends- and me! are surprised (and impressed) the gym hater goes to the gym. I am no longer scared to sweat or raise my heart rate, am not bored, can’t believe what I can do – and that’s down to James 2 and the friendly, relaxed, atmosphere at PD fitness. I still don’t want to go to the gym but I wouldn’t miss a session.

Sophie Malpas

I have been a member of this extremely friendly gym for 8 years. There is always helpful advice on hand from the staff. I have benefited from personal training sessions from Paul who has helped me immeasurably with my re – hab following 2 spinal operations. I am now fighting fit and raring to go.

Joan Cato

When I was looking for a gym to train in, I personally wanted somewhere that offered a good range of equipment, somewhere I would feel comfortable, somewhere with a friendly atmosphere and trainers who I could trust knew what they were talking about.

For me PD Fitness ticked (and still ticks) all of these boxes. I had ten months until I was due to get married and a very tight wedding dress to squeeze into. Naturally, working in a Beauty Salon, I asked my clients if they could recommend a Personal Trainer, and several people without hesitation recommended PD Fitness. I went along, trained alongside Paul every week up until the wedding, managed to fit into the dress (phew!) and haven’t looked back in six years – I am so grateful to have found this gem of a gym!

In terms of the gym itself, there is no doubt it is an absolutely fantastic gym. The trainers themselves are all highly knowledgeable, extremely friendly and professional and offer a good selection of classes including yoga. All of the PD Fitness team take a genuine interest in each one of their members and always go out of their way to help, support and encourage all of us to achieve our goals.
