Cath, 07949 013693. I was feeling very low, self-confidence at rock bottom and completely lacking motivation to do anything and then, I found Mark.  Although anxious about making contact, I felt comfortable with Mark from the outset. He has a great knack of putting you at your ease. I found him friendly, easy going and, very importantly for me, non-judgemental.  
We worked through my programme together until I felt comfortable with it.  Our weekly sessions are all different, all challenging, but doable with Mark’s support. His attention is 100% as is his encouragement. He is a hard taskmaster but fair and has a great sense of humour. My fitness level has gone from below average to excellent! After 3 years Mark has done so much more than improved my fitness.  My weight loss and toning have boosted my self-confidence, mentally he’s helped me to get the old me back on track and I’ve been able to reduce my meds.  
As far as I'm concerned, continuing my training with Mark in the future is a no-brainer.

Sam Leach 07762 764340. As a semi-professional footballer, sport has always been an important part of my life. I was aware of Mark’s profound development with other athletes, and approached him after a frustrating season riddled with various injuries, niggles, and underperformance. In my first fitness test Mark was honest and enlightening and quickly identified a number of issues affecting my performance such as posture, flexibility and balance. He developed a short-term programme which almost immediately ironed out imperfections and made me feel lighter and more dynamic. Mentally I felt totally transformed. The last three years have been staggering. Mark has a very progressive style and is an expert in psychology and understanding how people tick and thrive, not just in athletic performance but in permanent improvements to mental wellbeing and thinking under pressure. Sessions are always varied, challenging and well-planned. Head and shoulders above trainers I have worked with before.  Mark’s knowledge is second to none, and always delivered in an approachable, accessible and inspiring way.  I am now the fittest and quickest in my team and have had no injuries since training with Mark. My only regret is not doing so sooner. As a director of a business with 20 staff, Mark’s philosophy has helped me improve my abilities to communicate, empower and support others, with many approaches that can be applied to business as well as sport. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mark’s services to anybody.

Sarah, 07388 898840. In 2008. I was due to go on a trek in Nepal and was worried my fitness wasn’t good enough. I had tried all the usual stuff, (couch to 5k, exercise classes, home fitness videos, joined gyms and wasted loads of money), so needed a different approach and motivation to get fitter and feeling better about myself. I had all the usual worries, but eventually picked up the phone and Mark immediately put me at ease. Mark works from his purpose-built well-equipped gym attached to his home, which is lovely. He also works outside but I never feel exposed to lots of people when I'm with him. Mark is a warm, genuine family man. He makes each training session varied, but totally about you and your goals. He really listens to what you want and adapts to your goals. He is a very experienced trainer with years of fitness and life experience, and a normal family man with life experience. I have achieved many life goals through mark including climbing onto the Eiger but I am a normal 50+ woman with all the same self-doubt as anyone.  Mark has kept me sane for many years now and I have achieved so much stuff I never thought I could do.  

James 07834 165638. I have been working with Mark for over a decade and during that period he has supported me in a number of different sporting endeavours from Rugby, Marathons, Long Course Triathlons, and many other challenges. He has helped develop a strong core both physically and mentally and has done his best to manage my cheese addiction!  Whilst I initially started working with Mark for training and fitness, it is his focus on the whole athlete which has kept me with him. He has helped train both my wives at different times, during chemo’ and post child birth (twins) and always has been keen to push both me, them and himself to get the best out of all of us. He has provided emotional support and guidance during my first wife’s battle with cancer and subsequent bereavement.  I have yet to meet a PT I would rather work with, or would trust more.

Lizzy 07775813802. I am a 36-year-old mum of toddler twins. After pregnancy my body had changed, I had gained weight and needed to gain focus and motivation to improve my physical health.  Mark’s experience, knowledge and personality has given me motivation and determination for a better, healthier and stronger me. Mark’s 1:1 sessions focus mainly on physical fitness; however, he offers much more of a holistic coaching approach which I have found very beneficial.

Lorraine Gregory 0113 2547366. I can highly recommend Mark Baxter. My partner and I have been going to Mark for many years and have seen real tangible benefits. I am now not only physically fitter and stronger, but more mentally alert and have more stamina to cope with a very busy job. The bonuses are that I have lost weight, I no longer wear my knee brace for sport and I have taken up running. My partner has had similarly dramatic results. His fitness is such that he can now compete in fell races and he is much more laid back about the stresses of his job. The result is we are both enjoying life more. Mark is extremely professional in his approach to clients and has a wide portfolio of experience to draw on. If you work with him, he will certainly help you get the results you want.
