I was never particularly overweight but just wanted to tone up after having two children. After several months my bottom was firmer and my legs and arms got stronger and more toned. I then started the 1-2-1 Nutrition Coaching programme and things really started to change. I was putting off starting it for almost a year because I was worried about changing my lifestyle, which I thought would be impossible, given I loved my wine and dining out every weekend and in general never having to really think about what I was eating.

I finally decided to sign up and I can honestly say I have never looked back. My energy levels went up, sleep has improved and I feel great but, most of all, the way my body shape has changed in such a short space of time has shocked me to the core, and others around me! My body fat has been stripped back giving me abs, muscle tone without flexing and very little wobble left. It’s been the best decision I have made with regards to my health and fitness and my new lifestyle. I don’t miss the weekend drinking and the eating out and the podgy, sluggish feeling I would get on a Monday and Tuesday. I can still have a drink but it’s more controlled, rather than habitual for the sake of it.

The coaching side has been great from the get-go, Dan is always there for support and guidance and giving you encouragement on a one to one basis as well as within the nutrition group. He makes it easy for you to follow as he does all the ratios and working out of calories for you etc. Meal plans are shared which broadens your horizons massively on what to eat, along side the training, which has been a real eye opener.

Overall I would 100% recommended this to anyone.

Kathryn Metcalfe

Over the years I have tried tons of fitness classes and weight loss programmes. Slimming World, Buggy Fit, spinning, kettlebells, Body Pump…the list goes on. 

Reach is different! It’s literally been the best thing I’ve ever done. Today I bought a pair of trousers in a size 6! The only thing I’ve ever had in a size 6 is a pair of shoes!”

Do yourself a favour and see what it’s about. You won’t look back! 

Lucie Page

Never in a million years did I ever think I would achieve what I have without the expertise and knowledge of the coach’s Dan and Cat. I’ve got the will power but didn’t know what to do with it to get where I wanted to be. These guys and the other clients make it a great place to train. Everyone supports one another without being judgemental. I don’t have to think about anything as it’s all planned for when I get to the sessions. I love the fact you are shown to do each workout in a safe manner making sure your technique is right to get the maximum benefit. Hooked for life. Over 2 stones down and I’m loving seeing my body transform into a better shape.

Vanessa Dean

Well what can I say, I feel emotional writing this. From receiving the leaflet through my door and plucking up courage to book a trial session, my health and fitness journey has been fantastic with Jo. I’m now over 3 stone lighter, much fitter and have toned arms for the first time in my life. The hardest bit was making the decision and sticking with it. A brilliant team, with immense support. I’m a different person. I can’t thank Jo and Dan enough.

Gill Bowie

I have been training with Cat from Reach for just 6 months. I see myself very much as a beginner after years of attempting the gym and feeling completely intimidated by the Lycra and complicated looking equipment! Picking up the phone to Reach was the hardest part. I have literally transformed my opinion of health and fitness in an incredibly short space of time. The sessions are highly personalised, structured and focussed on what I want to achieve. Cat is absolutely fantastic at pushing me in the right direction to ensure I get the best results. I don’t do the 1 to 1 nutrition it may be something I choose to add to my fitness plan in the future, however Dan is still on hand for support and advice to steer me in the right direction which is always appreciated. I am seeing fantastic results in six months having lost 2.5 stone and half a metre off my body with a sensible, realistic exercise and fitness plan, combined with highly effective nutritional advice. As a result, a few weeks ago I wore a skirt for the first time in a billion years!! I can’t recommend Reach highly enough, they offer excellent value for money in a supportive environment and they really do what they say on the tin! Thanks Cat and Dan.

(Since this was written, Zoe has lost over 5 stone and 100cm body fat).

Zoe Bawn

I’ve worked at home for 3 years, feeling increasingly isolated and chair shaped.The fear of bladder leakage, perimenopausal aches and pains and loss of confidence almost stopped me from joining Reach. I’m so glad I felt the fear and did it anyway!
I have just signed up for my third consecutive 8 week training package because I LOVE IT!!
Reach training and it’s inclusive culture has helped me to achieve:

☑️ Improved mental health and well-being.
☑️ Healthy weight loss, strength gain, better body shape and increased confidence.
☑️ I feel happier and have made some great friends.
☑️ I am comfortable to train with bladder challenge (and am sensitively supported to exchange activities that cause difficulty).
☑️ We are just everyday folk optimising our potential and celebrating each other’s strengths and achievements.

I absolutely love working out at Reach. Dan, Cat and Joanne are so friendly, supportive and positive about what you can do, not critical of what you can’t…

Even my son has decided to join the Reach Teens sessions 😊. Go on, treat yourself…. Join our Reach Family. You’ll never look back 🤷‍♀️

Emma Heeson

For anyone debating whether to start personal training with Reach I can honestly say it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made! To the best Personal Trainer in the world – thank you for making me believe in myself! 

Roman Zagajewski

At first I was a little hesitant about joining because I hadn’t been to the gym for a long time and I was always too busy spending time with my family but it was the best decision!

I have lost three stone. I am now the fittest, strongest and healthiest I’ve ever been. 

Treesje Bentley

I’ve just celebrated my one year anniversary with Reach. I signed up to an 8 week offer and thought I’d just do 8 weeks, give myself a boost and then go back to what I was doing before. One year later and I’m still here, I’ve loved every minute of training and I’ve also added a one to one PT session to my week and I love going to Saturday morning PERFORM sessions when I can. Reach has helped me with so much more than my weight and has become a massive part of my life.

Sue Harrison

Dan & Cat are brilliant coaches. My body shape has changed due to nutrition coaching, help, guidance and motivation from both coaches and other members. I have gained muscle definition and I look good! We are one big happy family and I’m so glad I made the decision to join! 

Lorraine Hammond

The Reach team are amazing! I can 

Paul Blandford

Becoming part of the Reach programme has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself on a personal level, investing in my health and allowing myself some time for me. I’ve been pretty sporty and active my whole life and thought I understood nutrition. I didn’t know the half of it! I now train twice a week at Group PT and attend the PERFORM session at the weekend (supplemented with my other regular activities like netball and home workouts). 

I feel absolutely empowered and invigorated by Reach because of everything I’ve learned in the last year. I can honestly say that the changes I’ve made will be with me for life because I have been given the knowledge to understand and know-how to adapt them. There is nothing rigid and no assumption that one size fits all, just guidance and help to find a lifestyle change that works for the individual – both in terms of nutrition and training. On a purely aesthetic level, I look better! This was never my main goal but is a very welcome development. 

I used to eat well and exercise a lot but my body didn’t respond like I felt it should. I told myself that I just didn’t have the right body type/metabolism for muscle and after 2 kids and approaching 40 I should just learn to be content. The changes to my body prove that with the right advice anyone can see an improvement and become more than just content. One final and very important mention goes to the coaches and the Reach “family”, everyone is so supportive, friendly and welcoming. I look forward to every session for a laugh and a catch up with friends while I sweat, just because we are working hard doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it! I would recommend Reach to anyone. 

Nina Robinson

I decided to join the Reach programme just over 8 weeks ago. I had hit rock bottom with my health, depression and self-loathing. Something had to change. I had to change. That first day I was terrified, I didn’t know what to expect and how I would be received. I was met with a warm friendly smile. Cat and the other members of the group were so supportive and encouraging through each session. Dan has been really supportive and patient with me while I have been getting to grips with my nutrition.
I am still under construction – body, mind and soul and have signed up for a lifetime membership (no getting shut of me now, ha). I have lost 16lb in just over 8 weeks and feeling better about myself. Only you can make the change, however with a fantastic team like the Reach team behind you, you are sure to succeed in your goals.

Marie Latham

I can’t recommend Dan enough as a trainer. He’s not only knowledgeable about his trade but it’s clear that it’s also a great passion of his. This is certainly evident in the programmes he devises. All achievements are recorded, which makes it easy to set personal goals but also shows how much progress has been made. I personally have found this to be the greatest motivation. He’s got a great rapport with all his clients making classes fun as well as functional.

Sarah Cameron

I was going to start to write about the personalised, structured and well planned sessions. I was also going to mention how each session is varied, tailored to my current targets, ultimate goals and current fitness level. I could also mention that Dan has been able to both motivate and push me to working towards my goals but is also very supportive. His depth of knowledge on fitness training and nutrition is informative, helpful and reassuring. However, I’m not going to write about any of that. I would like to tell you about losing over 2 stone in weight and of the unbelievable confidence I have gained from it – no longer hate looking the mirror or having my photo taken. I am going to tell you about feeling uncomfortable and awkward in size 20 clothes to now easily fitting in size 16 – even have a couple of size 14 tops! I am going to tell you about struggling to run even 100m to now running regularly and able to complete distances of 5-10 km. I am going to tell you that I haven’t yet reached my goals but feel I have the key to success – personal training with Dan at Reach.

(Since this was written Heidi has lost over 5 stone).

Heidi Halliday

I started doing the 8 Week Fitness & Fat Loss Camp back in September and I haven’t looked back. I am a size 18 and have not been to a gym in years (even then, I gave up quite quickly!) and had very low fitness. I was nervous at first, this was out of my comfort zone and I was worried I would show myself up and not be able to do everything as well as someone fitter. I needn’t have worried. Cat, Dan and Jo are amazing at making you feel comfortable but at the same time pushing you to try your hardest. They have great knowledge on fitness and nutrition, are really friendly and care about their clients. I highly recommend Reach. I am fitter than I have ever been and never once have I felt like the odd one out, or made to feel uncomfortable with my level of fitness. Cat, Dan and Jo see the positives in what you do and it really motivates you. They are a great team and I can’t thank them enough.

Cassie Sykes

The Reach team are amazing, I can honestly say they’ve changed my whole outlook on fitness and health. Now I know what it takes to get lean and healthy!

Paul Blandford

I’m a busy working mother who’s always been fairly keen on health and fitness, then I met Dan. Alongside his expert knowledge, intelligent training and well placed encouragement, I’ve worked hard, made some lifestyle tweaks and have lost over two stones in weight. I have gone from “I can’t run!” to a sub 23m 5K. I’m over the moon with that and my journey is not over yet. Thanks to Danny and the adjustments he’s helped me make to my nutrition, training and seeing my potential, I feel great! I’m stronger, leaner and doing things I never thought possible. 

Claire Doyle

I absolutely love my sessions! They push you to the best of your ability and the results are there for everyone to see. If you want to improve your fitness, your physique and your future then look no further!

Lisa Hewitt

I’ve been training at Reach on a regular basis for a while and the positive effect it has had on my body, health and wellbeing is huge. Don’t just expect a workout, expect a tailored lifestyle change. One of the best decisions I have made!

Shahid Hussain

Since starting at Reach I’ve become stronger, fitter and a lot more confident in myself.

Becoming part of the reach team has been a lifestyle change but not one I’ve begrudged, instead, something I’ve really enjoyed. I’ve found another friendship group, we encourage each other and you feel part of it, no matter your level or fitness.

I would 100% recommend Reach to anyone looking to improve their fitness! If you’re willing to put in the effort, you will get results.

Alyce Heeley

Joining Reach was the best decision I’ve done. The results are amazing, although it is down to you how well you follow the nutrition plan and how hard you push yourself.
