"Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable & totally at ease with. Highly recommend."
Wheelchair bound, arthrodesis of the right leg resulting in 4 inch length loss, only able to walk a few yards on a flat surface at home with a walking aid. Sounds bad but my situation is now getting better thanks to a Personal Trainer willing to take me on. Strength, weight loss, co-ordination and self-confidence is a quick resumé of the improvements Simon Farrar has made. I have lost 2 stone in body fat, walked on uneven surfaces outside with a little help and even been to the shops on my own (electric wheelchair) for the first time in over 10 years.
Simon, you're a miracle worker!
I started seeing Simon in August last year, having resolved to have another go at getting in shape, something that I've tried multiple times before and always bounced back to where I start, if not heavier and even more unfit each time. Over the last 11 months Simon has helped me get back into exercise and increase my dietary awareness. I've dropped quite a few kilos and have shrunk from a 44 inch waist jeans to a 38 and whilst this is great the biggest change is in my fitness, I am now the fittest I ever remember being, aches and pains from poor sitting posture and general inactivity are gone. Simon encourages and leads me to outperform myself in every session, getting the maximum benefit with gentle coercion and support and allowing me to set my own targets. I've seen Simon once or twice a week for the last eleven months and every session is varied and enjoyable.
As an actor on Eastenders, I often get up at 3am and travel to London. It's hard work, but I can now do it with a smile thanks to my training. Simon plans everything, so that all I have to do is turn up, do what he tells me to do and get fitter! I have so much more energy for EVERYTHING.

Having just trekked to Mount Everest Base Camp, I made some discoveries after training with Simon. During my trek, when my heart was pounding and my lungs felt like bursting, it felt normal! I was not perturbed by it and was able to concentrate on the activity rather than worrying that I was over-doing it. I had greater mobility than some of the younger ones and when I felt I couldn’t keep climbing for one more second, I took a deep breath and was able to carry on. I don’t think I would have been able to achieve what I have done without Simon.
We started training with Simon 7 months before our wedding. It is infinitely more enjoyable than the gym & the benefits are so much more tangible. I achieved my goal of dropping two dress sizes and losing over a stone in weight. I felt fantastic on our wedding day. We continue to train with Simon as it's become an important part of our life.
Simon has a great personality and I like his approach. He is always well prepared for each session and he is constantly working with me to help me achieve my goals. He knows exactly where I am now, where I am going and how we are going to get there. Thanks to Simon I am fitter now than I have ever been in my life and I have lost 26 lb of fat. Simon never takes you beyond your limits, but is always pushing you to achieve your potential. Where I am today, I would never have thought possible a few months ago. I would encourage anyone to contact Simon, I am glad that I did.

I have been training with Simon 2 to 3 times per week for over a year now. I feel so much fitter and stronger since starting and, having lost 7 lbs of body fat whilst toning up, I'm a lot trimmer now. Simon is very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. He makes every session worthwhile - the progress you can make is amazing when there's so much variety in everything we do. Choosing Simon as my Personal Trainer was the best choice I ever made.
