TARA 45 and ALEX 38 from Mums to Marathon runners
Phil has driven us hard from the first day we met. We told him that in 3 months time we wished to run a marathon ... and incredibly we did, having previously hardly run at all.
Phil always kept the training focused on our goal but more importantly we had fun at the same time and we even looked forward to it ... sometimes !
Since completing the marathon we have both dramatically cut our body fat %'s whilst building lean muscle. 'Tara - 'I have had many personal trainers but Phil is quite simply the best'.
SUE from France,
Fit and slim at 58.
After a serious back operation 6 years ago I was nervous about exercising. I kept putting it off and gained 5 kilos which made me unhappy. My response was to hide under baggy clothes. Phil inspired me to take control of my body, change my attitude and get myself in shape. He put me on a 6 week starter fitness and nutritional plan working out 5 days per week, half an hour a day.
Now 3 months later I have dropped a dress size, conquered my bingo wings and have toned muscles that I have not seen since I was 21! I have loads more energy with no mid afternoon slumps and sleep like a baby. I found it tough at times but without Phil's continual encouragement I know I would have dropped out after a few weeks . Today my eating and exercise regime has become a way of life ... and I get to buy a new wardrobe!
DOUG 55, Lost 17 pounds in 12 weeks
Former Major in the British army.
When I first met Phil I was running on a treadmill 40 minutes a day, 5 days a week for years. I never lost any weight in fact I got fatter and my diet was poor. I saw the results Phil was getting and he put me on a completely new fitness and nutrition regime. It was a revelation to learn that I did not need to eat less to lose weight, I just had to eat better. My long slow cardio regime was thrown out and in came 5 days per week of High intensity exercise for only 10- 15 minutes per day as well as a strength/weights session of about 15 minutes. This new eating and exercise regime has literally changed my life. In 3 months I have lost 17 pounds in weight (fat) and gained lean muscle. I have not been this fit and healthy since my army days and am now totally committed to this new lifestyle. On our one to one sessions Phil is patient but demanding and he always gets the best out of me … and still does! - I have a suspicion that he used to be in the Special Forces though he tells me he was a model/sports agent … I’m not convinced :)
I couldn’t recommend Phil highly enough.

I've always tried to keep in shape but as I grew older I have found it more difficult to control my weight. Phil put me on a specific nutrition plan that cut my weight quickly and effectively. I now use this plan to keep myself toned and in good shape. And, by combining this with a programme of high intensity exercise this has succeeded in reducing my body fat and slimming my figure. The high intensity programme is hard and I have cursed Phil out loud on more than one occasion, but it is quick and effective and I am now confident that as I get older I have the necessary tools to maintain my muscle tone, fitness and health.....
.... On a separate note if you ever get invited to Phil's house for dinner do not be surprised if he has you working out before the starters arrive!
JOHN loses 62lbs and 27% body fat in 9 months
I was diagnosed with Adult onset type-2 diabetes over 14 months ago and was clinically obese. The specialists had prescribed various drugs which just managed my condition and over time my condition would become worse. I did some research and discovered I was just a big fat couch potato that would die 10 years prematurely if I didn’t do anything about my situation. At the right moment Phil appeared and gave me the direction and encouragement to get my health back. It’s not easy but you have to believe that you can do it. Hard work, clean eating, plenty of exercise, and a positive mental attitude will take one a long way. I have now lost 62 pounds and expect to put my Type 2 diabetes into full remission very soon.
Phil has given back to me a life worth living. Thanks Phil
lost 10 pounds and 4% body fat in 7 weeks!
'It's like there was a tipping point where it started to accumulate and
gave me a muffin top, and no matter what I did, it wouldn't budge but muffin tops are not an option for me and once I started on my new programme slowly it started to deflate and weight loss picked up speed. I'm 40 in December and have no desire to look like a tooth pick, just toned. I think the thing with metabolism and Phil's advice and gentle persuasion was to start looking at actual carb grams in food. Everyone knows bread, pasta etc is carby, but has everyone checked the carb grams in there bbq sauces lately?! All sugar just seems to basically mess with blood sugar levels, release excess insulin and makes us store fat ...
ANDREA 47 Athletic toned figure
I'm sure others have said it but Phil has quite simply been an inspiration to me. I was not overweight apart from some annoying fat around my lower thighs and knees which, by the way, Phil kindly pointed out :) I also lacked any muscle tone especially on my arms. Phil carefully designed a fitness regime that would build muscle tone throughout my whole body and this coupled with his 20 minutes of very intense training cut the fat. My son saw me in the gym and said he had never seen me work so hard!
Phil expects you to succeed which helps build your confidence and so after a complete nutritional overhaul where I adopted everything he said down to the last detail I now have the athletic figure I always wanted and I feel great. If you follow his advice, it works ... and incredibly it only took 10 weeks.
