I found Steve after I hit 18 stone and realised that I needed to become more active in order to shed weight. My gym membership was only effective in draining my bank balance so I knew I would need help to realise my goals. The initial introduction session was extremely difficult and made me question whether I was capable of seeing this through, but with Steve’s support I soon started to see fairly rapid improvements.

It wasn’t easy and I did need to become more disciplined in my everyday life, but the motivation I gained from training with Steve helped spur me on. When you’re doing squats in a park at 5am on a cold December morning, suddenly going for a run in the sunshine doesn’t seem so difficult!

Steve was extremely accommodating to my schedule and having a trainer that comes to you makes it so much easier to stay committed.

I have already achieved so much more than I expected in the 10 months since that initial training session. I have completed my first 10k, my first half marathon and even made a foolhardy attempt to complete the 145 Kennet & Avon Canal Race. I didn’t come close to finishing but the 36 miles I did manage is something I wouldn’t have dreamt about a year ago.

I will continue to use Steve’s services in future and would recommend him to anyone that, like me, struggles to motivate themselves and has already invested far too much money in unused gym memberships.

I was already working out regularly when I met Steve. I was looking for a trainer because although I was exercising, I wasn’t seeing the kind of results I was hoping for, plus I wanted to lose some weight before my wedding. Steve is a very nice and funny guy. Even though his routines are challenging he still manages to put a smile on your face and motivates you to keep going in an encouraging manner, instead of yelling as I have experienced with other trainers. Since training with him, I have been able to lift more weights and do more reps. For example, I used to use 50 kg on the leg press when working out alone, I did 120 kg yesterday!! And I would only do push ups on my knees before but now I do them on my toes. Aside the exercises, he also provides advice on diet and makes helpful recommendations. There’s an improvement and I highly recommend him!

I've have always struggled with motivation, and have spent over a decade wasting money on unused gym memberships, equipment and fitness DVDs.  PT sessions with Steve have made me fitter, stronger and healthier than I've ever been, and cemented a regular fitness routine that I actually enjoy. I've even signed up for Tough Mudder! 


Kathryn Jarvis & Andrew Hunter(Team GB Bejing 2008   13-12-17


We really enjoyed our time with Steve. Through using a combo of bodyweight, high intensity, TRX exercises and boxing we both feel in much better shape having both lost over 8lbs. Importantly however, despite the early mornings outside, we had fun! Steve pushed us both where appropriate and made sessions that suited our ability. We are disappointed we can’t take him with us to our new home!

If I have to summarise my relation with Steve I will say it was a life changing experience!

I was always a kind of active person, with seasons doing more sports and activities than others but in general lines an average sporty-person. Several times I tried to improve my fitness levels going to the gym and trying new sports but nothing helped. After one year doing zero exercise I decided it was enough, I wanted to make a change in my life-style, my habits, my diet,I wasn’t happy with my body neither.

I found What A Life Fitness through Google reviews and decided to give it a go but honestly not expecting big things. I was totally wrong, Steve not only helped my with my fitness but also with motivation and setting my goals higher than I ever think I could. After 7 months meeting him weekly I lost around 2.5 stones of weight, increased my muscle mass and pushed to the limits my cardio and stamina. I learned how to eat healthier, I learned how my body works and how I can get the most of it, also learned how to control your thoughts to push harder and further. All of this thanks to him.

My testimonial wouldn’t be complete if I’m not mentioning how fun is to train with Steve also! Having a great time in every training makes think every week in the next one.

I absolutely recommend What A Life Fitness to anyone looking for a change, YOU CAN DO IT.

I was lucky enough to be given 10 sessions with Steve as a birthday present from my husband. I started the sessions in December 2016 to complement training for the Brighton marathon and after the 10 sessions finished I decided to continue seeing Steve once a week. As an experienced long distance runner, Steve was able to put together a training regime which would ultimately enable me to finish my first marathon feeling strong and capable. Steve's experience meant that he was able to give me the right advice when I was overdoing it, petrified with nerves or feeling despondent about training. I couldn’t have finished the marathon without him. 

Steve is a brilliant trainer who brings good humour and positivity to exercise and despite having to drag myself out of bed at 5am on a Friday morning, I always look forward to our sessions because I come away feeling great about myself. 

I’ve carried on training with Steve since finishing the marathon because I enjoy it so much and I have undoubtedly noticed a huge improvement in my running fitness, form and endurance.

'Steve is great at giving you a positive mental outlook as well as getting you stronger and fitter. Over the past two years I've gone from not being able to run 1k to running a half marathon and I sit up better and walk taller too. My teenager daughter trains with me too and there is never, ever a session where we don't head home happy and smiling together - even if we've turned up tired and in a grump. Can't recommend his approach enough'. 


Holly Boyd & Michael Gentry 20-04-17


Holly and I have had Steve as a PT for a few months now and we have already booked up for the next few months too.  Steve has a fantastic way of pushing Holly and I to our individual output/effort limits week after week and always with a different workout to keep the session fresh and us continually guessing.  Steve has great banter too which lifts the spirits towards the end of a session when energy levels are at their lowest. I cannot reccomend Steve highly enough



Carolyn Hoffman 01-06-16 


When I began training with Steve 2 ½ years ago, I was struggling with low energy levels, frequent migraine headaches and severe shoulder, knee and hip pain due to far too many hours seated at a desk in front of a computer. Thanks to Steve’s constructive approach – he always challenges me in a positive, encouraging and upbeat way – my migraine frequency has been reduced by more than half, my shoulder, hip and knee pain have been virtually eliminated and my energy levels are significantly improved. I have a five-year-old son with special needs and being able to carry, piggy-back and hoist him onto my shoulders with ease is hugely important to me – as is my re-discovered love of running and the previously unknown satisfaction of a boxing workout! Steve keeps sessions challenging and fun, changing things up regularly to ensure that neither I nor my muscles get bored or complacent, which means that my sessions are something I look forward to, rather than simply another “must do” on a long to-do list. I cannot recommend him highly enough – his sessions are effective, tailored to my needs and priorities and a lot of fun to do.

"I've been working with Steve for 6 months now. He is has been a fantastic trainer, helping me by designing and delivering a custom fitness training programme. He makes each session different, interesting and tailored based on how fit I am at that time. He is punctual, reliable and highly committed to improving my fitness and life in general. Steve also makes the sessions fun and engaging. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a personal trainer in West London.”



Liz Clarkson Testimonial 25-02-16


I started training with Steve 4 months ago and I can't believe the difference it has made! 

I originally had the goal of getting back into a good fitness routine which I have definitely done, as well as my sessions with Steve I'm back running, have taken up spinning and doing lots of Hiit training. Although that was my goal I've achieved so much more than I thought possible. I've done a series of 10k runs during this time and have managed to knock over 3 minutes off my pb and lost inches from toning up! It must be all those jump squats!!!

I would recommend Steve to anyone, whether you're looking to lose weight, train for an event or just get back into fitness - if you put the effort in the rewards are great!



Daisy Ziegler Testimonial 30-09-15


"Turning 30 and getting married within a few months of each other came as quite a shock, my biggest fear of bingo wings in a wedding dress was about to be realised....


Having lost four stone through diet and spinning, I was in real need of someone to help motivate me into toning up and losing the last stone or so before my big day. Steve was a godsend, he listened to what I wanted and tailored my sessions to be interesting, fun and really target my problem areas while ensuring that I kept up my aerobic exercise with some hard core tabata.


He had great advice and made sure I really got everything out of each session, while teaching me new exercises that I could use in the gym and also at home -  I am a total TRX convert (apart from jump squats...!). I lost inches all over, including several around each arm - something I never thought would happen. Steve was kind, supportive and fun to work with - and most importantly he got me the results I wanted.”



Alexis Moore 14-10-14


I hate gyms, I hate sports or anything that is athletic. My idea of pushing myself would be to get out of bed on time. But I decided last year that enough was enough and I needed to do something to lose some weight and get fit. 

And so I went to Steve. 


My first session was hilarious. After half an hour later, I was the colour of beetroot and trying my hardest to not pass out or throw up in the park. It was embarrassing. But Steve was great and didn't laugh at me and just encouraged me to keep going. 

That was a year ago and I've been doing sessions with him twice a week ever since.


I am definitely fitter, I can do so much more than I ever expected and I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I think I actually enjoy it now! 


Steve is brilliant - a lovely man who persists with trying to make me push myself (regardless of the amount I swear at him).  He keeps it interesting and varies each session so you don't get bored and there's just something lovely about being out in the park in the morning, rain or shine, knowing that you're being good and exercising. 

I can't thank him enough for being a great friend and showing me that fitness doesn't have to be horrible and unpleasant. I have lost weight, my jeans fit better and I can do press ups on my toes! So happy!


I would tell anyone to sign up to his sessions immediately. It will be worth it and you'll be really pleased you did. It's a life changer....But just watch out for those Burpees! Ugh! 



Caroline Collins 09-09-14


I have been training with Steve now almost 6 months. After turning 40 I decided that my non existent exercise routine should change. Steve has helped me achieve a level of physical fitness I would not have thought possible, certainly never left to my own devices. I have definitely seen a big change in my body shape and lots of friends and family have commented on how well I look. This is all down to Steve's personal training routine that's designed just for me. His encouragement, expertise and motivation have made these last six months not only very productive but also very enjoyable ( although don't get me wrong it's hard work too!) He also has a great sense of humour which helps! 


I would certainly recommend Steve to anyone, whether you are a beginner or just want to build on your current exercise regime. 



Jodi O'Brien 21-07-14


I started training with Steve three months ago with the goal of improving my overall fitness and getting back into a regular exercise routine.  The sessions with Steve have helped me achieve this and more.  They are always fun and no two sessions are the same.  Steve is a fantastic coach and each session comes with a good balance of encouragement, support and pushing through barriers to the next level.  I genuinely find myself looking forward to the training (despite the 100s of burpees I’ve done) and feel much fitter, stronger and more energised than before. 

Through Steve’s continued encouragement I have also rekindled my love of running and am now training for a 10k race in September with the hope of a new PB.  Overall I fully recommend Steve’s services to all who want to get fit in a fun and supportive environment.



Tom Roberts 18-03-14


I started training with Steve with the goal to improve my running times and after only a couple of weeks of core and strength training I was beating my previous best times by over 10%. I have continued training weekly with Steve for the last five months and the benefits have been amazing: much improved all round strength, faster recovery times after running, totally injury free and inches lost off my waist! My only regret is not having signed up with Steve earlier!
