TESTIMONIALS

If the testimonials and success stories from around the site aren’t enough, here is our growing wall of testimonials and compliments…

“I started PT sessions with Jon Borland at PTUK a year ago. My goal was to tone up and to get fit. I’ve certainly achieved that, and for the first time in years I have worn sleeveless tops and dresses. In addition to this, I’ve dropped a dress size!

Jon listened to what I want to achieve and he has got me there. He motivates, and I always come away feeling great! I train with Jon twice a week and can’t imagine not doing it now!  For the first time ever I can honestly say I’m happy with my body shape and it’s all thanks to Jon at PTUK.”

“After suffering from bad knees and ankles during my training for the London Marathon, I asked Jon if he could help me as I couldn’t afford to keep missing training runs due to injury. Jon was incredibly flexible and able to accommodate me at times that suited me and created a suitable training plan to help me build up my core strength throughout my training.

Happy to say that with Jon’s help, I was able to complete the rest of my training and the marathon with no more injuries. I then decided to continue with a number of PT sessions after and have stronger than before and avoided injury ever since. I would definitely recommend Personal Training UK to others.”

“I have been attending Jon’s classes 2 to 3 times a week for the past three years. Everyone there is very friendly regardless of your level and ability.

The classes focus on cardiovascular strengthening body toning and weights etc and are always varied. John is very motivational and pushes you to achieve more. ”

Amanda Offord

“I have weekly Boxing 1-to-1’s with Jon Borland at PTUK. We regularly work on boxing technique, fitness, conditioning, power and footwork. We use pad-work for boxing combinations and improving technique, Specific Plyometric exercises to increase punching power and fitness drills to develop cardio.

Jon’s attention to detail and guidance  has allowed me to improve in all of these areas and my overall fitness is better than it has ever been. PTUK is well equipped and has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Each session is always different from the last and the variety makes it very enjoyable.”

Harry Balman

“I’ve been attending PTUK Bootcamp for several months now, and have found it has really helped improve my fitness levels.

Bootcamp is always challenging, fun, and also a friendly atmosphere. Using Tyres, Logs, Rings, Battle ropes, Kettlebells and the odd surprise, you’re tested to the limits!

You will never have two sessions the same, each session is always completely different from the last.”

Chris Parry

“Since starting sessions at PTUK I have seen a change in myself I did not think would be possible in such a short time frame.

The knowledgeable, friendly and motivating staff PTUK helped me to change my daily routine to achieve my goals.

I started the 1 to 1 sessions with Jon as well as classes at ClubClass, which are a great way to sociably achieve success.

I will continue with this routine, and adjust it as I set new goals.”

Lewis Thorton

“Three months ago my wife and I both were looking to tone up and loose a bit of weight, as we both had seemed to have reached a limit with just running.

Having found PTUK on Facebook through a friend, we popped along to meet Jon, who gave us a few options on how to proceed.
Having two children, finding time is quite difficult but he was really flexible and would fit in around us and our busy schedule.
We both have a training session once every two weeks and do various classes when we can fit it in, varying from Boxercise to Circuit training. The improvements have been significant and noticeable with each week and we would recommend anyone, whatever level of fitness, to give it try.
The other attendees have always made us feel very welcome and are all friendly and supportive. This creates a excellent atmosphere where all participants can feel at ease and share a common goal.”
Andy & Kerry White

“I’ve known jon for many many years now and have been attending his classes at ptuk regularly for the past 5 years which is testament to the quality of the classes, the sessions are always different and varied, coupled with jons enthusiam, professionalism and experience i always look forward to attending them.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone to try the sessions out for themselves”

Peter Saunders

“Jon is a personal trainer that we have known for many years. We thought it would be a good idea for him to start training our son Ronnie with some basic Boxing movements to help him with his agility and overall fitness.

Four years later, and Ronnie (now aged 11) is still training with Jon on a regular basis. Jon is extremely friendly and approachable and ensures the training sessions are fun and interesting and he certainly pushes Ronnie to his limit!!

Jon often changes the workout sessions so that they’re not repetitive – this helps Ronnie a lot as sometimes when he loses a bit of motivation, Jon is there to encourage him to try that little bit harder.

Overall, Ronnie thoroughly enjoys his training sessions with Jon and we believe this will help Ronnie to live a healthier lifestyle in the future.”

Ronnie Scarlett

“Having taken part in the Nuclear Races earlier in the year, I committed to Tough Mudder in September which was more than twice the distance. Along with PT Plus & Club Class, I took part in Club Bootcamp in order to prepare for the event.

We worked on my fitness, strength and most importantly stamina, in order to get me ready for the event.

Club Bootcamp was intense and great preparation for the OCR season.”

Paul Stevens

“I met Jon 3 months ago. Since working with him in PT sessions, I’ve lost over a stone in weight and 4.5 inches off my waist.

Starting at 9st 11lb and now 8st 10lb. I’m very very pleased with these results and will continue to visit Jon once a week until my big day in March.

I don’t think I could have done this without the extra help from a Personal Trainer. I enjoy my PT sessions which I didn’t think would be the case. Thanks Jon.”

Stephanie Hayman

“My daughter and I have been doing PT with Jon for 18 months now and thoroughly enjoy our sessions.  They are always varied so we never get bored doing the same thing all the time.

I have arthritis in my hip but I’m fitter and stronger now than I have ever been and in less pain and my daughter has lost over 4st and her body shape is changing and her fitness is getting so much better.  He is extremely professional and definitely gets the best out of you. ”

Jackie & Courtney Blundell

“I have been training at PTUK in the group exercise classes since the beginning of the year and have loved every minute. Having been a member of a number of larger gyms in the past, I was used to very large group classes, with little personal training or assistance from the instructor, PTUK sessions are a brilliant mix of personal training and group exercise. Attending PTUK has enabled me to perfect my technique within group training, achieving much better results than ever before.

There is a friendly atmosphere within the gym and I was welcomed in straight away, I have particularly enjoyed the social aspect of the gym with organised events and challenges for the whole group. “

Abby Baker

“I started BoxPlus with Jon in a bid to lose some of the stubborn fat and generally tone up. What I achieved with Jon’s help was far more than this!

Using boxing, my overall strength and fitness improved so much in a short space of time. Each workout is tailored to your goals, so you can achieve exactly what you have discussed.

Jon is energetic, fun,hard working, committed and inspirational… I can’t recommend him enough!”

Nick York

“Attending Club Bootcamp allowed me to introduce a different level of training into my weekly routine. A different intensity to the aerobic classes I usually do, this allowed me to build up my strength with gritty outdoor challenges.

I didn’t think I’d enjoy getting dirty, wet, and cold, but this is what Bootcamp is all about, and it was surprisingly fun and a great sense of achievement.

I would recommend Club Bootcamp to all levels of fitness.”
