Rob Lodge

Rob, 33, has suffered from significant injuries to both his knees and although they had recovered, he still lacked confidence in them and as a result stopped his Martial Arts training and cycling. Due to this lack of physical activity Rob had gained some weight that he wanted to shift before his wedding on the 30th September 2006. Rob starting training with me in July 06 and since then has lost 11lb of body fat and improved his physique through resistance training, dramatically transforming his body shape - his mates now call him "skinny"! He has regained his confidence in his knees and can run and cycle without pain or discomfort. His personal best pedal speed on the bike is 167 RPM!

Mark Stephenson

Mark's goals are to lose weight, build some muscle and improve general fitness. He suffers from stomach ulcers and this presents him with a real challenge as it sometimes affects his diet, wellness/energy levels and ability to exercise. Owning his own IT solutions company often presents Mark with another challenge; being consistent with his training. His work takes him all over the world, Mark has to show extra dedication to ensure he is consistent in completing his weekly workout plan! Click on his Blog to keep up-to-date with his progress:
