“I have tried many personal trainers in the past but never had much success. Tirrel was recommended by the friend who had also faced a similar issue so I thought I’d give it a go for my wedding. He helped me every step of the way including the diet and exercise. I lost 2 stones in 3 months and reached my best ever weight. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a true body transformation. He will guide you every step of the way and ensure you don’t lose your momentum and motivation.”

The training was intensive and pushed me to my limit and that’s what I wanted

I was looking for an 8-week intensive transformation program and visited a number of gyms around London to find the right trainer for me. A number of factors made me choose Tirrel; he’s easy to get on with and has an infectious positive attitude, he clearly knew his stuff, was clued up on nutrition and his prices were sensible.

 

We discussed the goals I had in mind and he worked out an evolving program over the 8 weeks covering sessions with him and sessions on my own. He added a nutrition plan to this which included an array of natural supplements that I admittedly had little knowledge of beforehand and now wouldn’t go without. 

 

For me the training was intensive and pushed me to my limit and that’s what I wanted. Despite the hard work it was hugely enjoyable and I recommended a friend of mine to train with Tirrel – a clear indication that I was happy with how it all went! The results were great and also the knowledge that I gained through the 8 weeks on both exercises and nutrition made it even more worthwhile. I’ll be back training with Tirrel when I return to the UK.

Think yourself Fit

 

With the New Year looming and all of the Christmas parties in full swing it can be really easy to give up on all of the work you’ve put in this year. But fear not as long as you adopt the right attitude you can make it out the other side unscathed.

Have in the front of your mind how much you have accomplished plus all that you’re yet to achieve. Ensure you have a clear set of goals, this will enhance productivity also motivation to conquer the fitness fit list that was created by yourself. Think your self fit, everything is created in the mind then in reality. With the right mindset you are sure to a much better chance of staying on track in tis festive season.

I’ve always believed that it’s much easier to be consistent with training rather than to adopt a start stop approach. Remember a little something is better than a whole load of nothing when it comes to exercise. A 15-minute interval session will do a world of good compared to a session missed. Balance Is essential, so why not aim to create time to fit in some training plus be social with your friend’s and family. Or even go one better and invite them to the gym with you. Give yourself the best shot at success by planning ahead, getting together some sort of training pattern will ensure your goal still seem attainable as we head into the new year.

Get prepared Mentally with a list of obstacles that may stand in your way and then a solution to each of them, think damage limitation. We all know that the Christmas period can easily spiral out of control into a whirlwind of calories especially on Christmas day. I myself really love the Christmas season and will be the first to admit than on Christmas day my plate is fully loaded! But so long as everyday doesn’t mirror this you’ll be absolutely fine. Enjoy yourself but try not to turn it into a binge that lasts a few days that when you’re asking for trouble.

Think yourself fit, know that you will have a great time over the next few weeks but you will also stay focused on the long term goal of getting in shape think yourself fit, think long term happiness over short term pleasure.

 

What ever you do have yourself a very Merry Christmas, if you would like us to conjure you up a plan to combat the Christmas calories please do get in touch.

 

my body AND mind Completely Transformed

pat_ward

 

 

I was one of these people who went to the gym often but never really saw massive amounts of change. Within weeks of starting to train with Tirrel i was seeing changes in my body i never thought i would.

Over the next 18 months my body AND mind completely transformed. I started at 55kg witch for a man is clinically underweight. With 18 months Tirrel had got me too 64.6kg of lean muscle, people who new me couldn’t believe it was the same person. He gave me so much motivation and knowledge after i finished training with him (only because i moved and got my first mortgage) i decided i wanted to do a qualification in personal training so i could become someone like Tirrel who helps people change their life’s by reaching their fitness goals.

He really changed my life and the way i few my body and fitness.

I Saw Visible Improvements Within Just A Few Week

ian side transformation

 

“When I decided to see what I could achieve when I properly committed to both fitness and nutrition for a consistent period of time, I knew I needed something more than a standard Personal Trainer from one of the major gym chains. I spent a couple of weeks searching the internet to seek out the best personal trainer I could find and am pleased to say that I chose Tirrel Grant.

Tirrel fulfilled two important qualities I had set out to find in a trainer:
– he is someone who has achieved an excellent physique himself and so knows exactly what it takes to achieve the transformative change I wanted
– he is someone who could motivate me to push myself without just being shouty or militaristic, but could listen and understand me as an individual

From the first meeting with Tirrel I felt completely confident that I was starting my journey with the right person. He is extremely friendly and engaging, full of energy but also very perceptive and focused on what you want to achieve and what might be your personal pitfalls that could stand in the way of achieving it. After a detailed analysis of my lifestyle, fitness levels and goals, he setabout creating an initial programme including nutrition and supplement plan and we began meeting twice a week for some challenging but extremely enjoyable sessions.

I saw visible improvements within just a few weeks and before long decided to increase the intensity to three sessions, buoyed by the burst of energy and positivity I gained from the results and from the genuine fun I had each time I trained with Tirrel. He has a fantastic sense of humour and can get you into the right headspace for a good session even on occasions where you were having a bad day before arriving.

After a year of training with Tirrel, I was in the best shape that I had ever been in and discovered that I could achieve results I had always felt may be beyond my reach. If you are looking for a trainer who can help you achieve more than you thought possible and someone who makes the whole process enjoyable rather than something to endure, then I would urge you to contact Tirrel Grant, before someone else books your slot in his schedule!”
