Personal Best

About Me

With over 25 years experience, I offer an empathetic and balanced approach to exercise, from our exclusive one to one personal training studio.

What Can I Do For You?

My philosophy on health and exercise is that we are unique individuals, who are more than just physical beings. By removing the ‘fears’ of exercise associated with gym culture and offering an empathetic approach to health and well being, one to one personal training can enable an individual to develop across the full spectrum of physical fitness. Understanding how the body works and feeling the body in movement along with sound nutritional advice and a balanced approach to exercise will allow the individual to make significant progress in their physical fitness and general health. Positive motivation and a non-judgemental approach will develop a positive mind set, which can help remove the obstacles in the way of our personal development. Exercise, diet, lifestyle, thoughts and beliefs can have both positive and negative impacts upon our lives. By working with the body we hope to unlock the doors to our true potential.

Carl Benton is one of the best practioner in the fields of personnel development, health and fitness and body work that I have had the pleasure of working with. His enthusiasm is matched by his knowledge and expertise. Pete Cohen GMTV Life Coach

Not only have Carl and the team at Personal Best helped us keep in shape, they have also made the whole process fun. And until I found PB I never associated gyms with fun. Indeed I hated them, which is why I never managed to stick with any fitness regime for more than a few months. The fact that we are still training at PB ten years after we first met Carl says it all really.

I used to do several exercise classes and play tennis but had a bad fall and broke my hip. It was a complicated break and I was on crutches for 18 months. After that I became very sedentary and wasn’t motivated to risk anything until Roger bought me some sessions with Personal Best. It took me ages to get round to going but once I did I was hooked. Carl and Kristine and the whole group there are amazing. I’ll be 80 in March and I feel so much better. People say why don’t you go for a walk instead but it’s not just physical, it’s mental – the team make real contact with you. It’s a lovely venue too – which is a gift in itself. I was an interior designer and can see the skill that goes into making the place work. With little touches, like having a candle burning in reception, they make it so welcoming. It doesn’t feel like a sweaty gym or a sterile surgery – just a nice place to sit and read a magazine! Jean Dyer

"I am very grateful to the PB team for their support. Over the years they have become like a second family. As a full time golfer, I rely on just a few of the services that PB offer; from Personal Training, to massage, Chiropractic therapy and Physio. They are a very friendly and professional team, who have provided me with invaluable assistance to help keep me in excellent physical shape. I look forward to continuing to work with the team for many years to come. "
