Paul is very effective. He instills good discipline and at the same time has a sense of humour. I would recommend him to anybody trying to improve their physical shape and general wellbeing.
A routine visit to my GP (having reached the age of 70) revealed the weight had held steady but there was a natural loss of strength and top body mass. He recommended exercises to restore the situation. After some trial and error, I met Paul Suggitt. Paul made further tests, gave recommendations and set targets to be achieved. I now train 2 or 3 days per week, muscle strength and balance have both greatly improved. I am far fitter to enjoy outside sports, fishing and hill climbing. Body fat has also been reduced and I have improved physical and mental strength. Sessions with Paul are serious and vigorous but enjoyable. He is comfortable to be with and has a positive and encouraging approach to life.
I trained with Paul for 10 sessions spread out over about an 11 week period. Before working with Paul I had done quite a bit of gym work and was in fairly decent shape with a fairly good knowledge. But working with Paul has progressed me so far in a short time. My aims at the beginning of the personal training were; to reduce my body-fat, maintain muscle size and improve general fitness. I have seen great gains in all three areas in the 11 weeks. My body-fat dropped by a third, I now feel stronger and my fitness has improved greatly, as shown in the 30% reduction in my resting heart rate. I generally feel a lot fitter and healthier with the advice from Paul, especially the dietary advice, which was very in depth and helpful. I think the most impressive thing with the training was the techniques that Paul showed me with my weight training. I now feel that my exercises are performed spot on which helps me keep injury free. I would recommend Paul to anyone that is keen to become fitter, healthier and generally happy with their life.
Paul is an outstanding personal trainer. He has a style which he adapts to suit his clients circumstances – mood, health, motivation, fitness. He links the desired outcome to very clear objectives. He has a realistic approach and the endearing quality of giving you a gentle push to get the maximum benefit from the time spent together!
His all round knowledge of diet nutrition health and fitness add real value too.
I have no hesitation recommending Paul to my personal friends and colleagues and will continue to do so.
My name is Len Baker and I suffered a serious stroke in 2006. Paul Suggitt has looked after me for over a year as a personal trainer and has contributed enormously to my physical recovery. He has strengthened not only my bones and muscles but also my mind. He also has the ability to interact with my family and all those about me. He is a natural born teacher and will go far.
I was referred to Paul as he was highly recommended from a friend, and from the start Paul was very patient and understanding and gave me well needed advice with my diet and training with the goal to drop a few dress size ready for the summer. Within the first two months my body fat percentage had dropped by 4%, losing 2″ off my hips, 3.5″ of my waist and 3″ off my thighs. It was great to get into a pair of size 12 Jeans instead of the old size 18. I would definitely recommend Paul as a Personal Trainer especially if you’re looking to get into a special outfit for a special occasion or just to improve you overall health and fitness level.
A friend recommended me to Paul after I mentioned that I wanted to lose some weight and tone up my body. I have now been training with Paul for over a year and I have lost 1.5 stone and gone down to a size 10 from a size 14. Every session that I spend with Paul is well planned and thought out and most of all it is fun, the sessions have varied from training at the beach to cycling in the woods! My overall fitness has never been better and I have re-gained the confidence that I had lost through weight gain.
Paul’s knowledge of nutrition has been a big help with sticking to a healthy diet and even when I have had bad days his motivation has been enough to keep me on track.
I would recommend training with Paul to anyone, whether you want to lose weight or improve your fitness, his knowledge, effort and enthusiasm is a real motivator!!

When I met Paul I was 15st 3lbs and had clear aims of reducing that significantly but also to gain greater fitness. Thanks to his expertise we have succeeded in getting my weight down to 12st 4lbs and the change in my shape has given me back the confidence that previously had gone.
Paul structures the sessions very well and the variety ensures that there is no stagnation setting in and that every time you turn up you feel energised at what is about to take place. He has such drive and enthusiasm for his work and this really translates onto his clients, raising their performance levels. He has a very pleasant humorous manner about him but is always respectful and supportive which to me is vital.
Paul also put together a nutritional programme for me, which I have followed and this has also delivered benefits in the weight loss area, but also a clearer knowledge of how to manage my diet on a day to day basis.
Of course I would and indeed have recommended Paul to friends. In these days when money is tight and we all look for value in that area, Paul delivers time after time.
Since training with Paul I have found I am so much more confident when I train on my own and know what to do to achieve my goals. He is very thorough and his work is always 100% helpful. In myself I can tell I have improved in my fitness level and my appearance. I would recommend Paul to anybody who finds it hard to approach the gym and also who just need that push!
Paul is an excellent personal trainer. he manages to deliver sound advice and training plans that really help you achieve your fitness / training goals. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of fitness and health and is able to devise fitness plans and advice specifically suited to the individuals in question. He is an enthusiastic teacher and manages to keep a good level of motivation beyond what is achievable on your own. I would recommend Paul to anyone.
Paul has trained me for just over a year. In that time I have improved my fitness and lost weight. I now feel in good shape, whilst sleeping better and in general I feel able to take on the world. Paul is very motivating and no training session has ever been the same.
I have never kept gym training up and after one year, I believe it is now an improved way of life.
Paul is superb as a trainer because he has both the academic and sports/ health understanding and respect for the human body. He listens to his clients and produces a programme to suit them.
To an unfit mum, he provides kind support, self belief and encouragement with a great personality!
Paul has been a great personal trainer for me. He listened during our first session regarding what I was looking to achieve and helped me set realistic and achievable goals based on the level of commitment I could make. During our sessions he continues to push me to the furthest point possible, far beyond the point where I would have stopped had I been on my own.
Each session is slightly different, which means they do not become monotonous, and the exercises we go through are straightforward enough that I can do these when working out on my own.
Paul has also helped me look at by diet and general health, so that all the hard work I do in the gym is not wasted by an unhealthy lifestyle away from the gym. After 5 weeks I started to see changes in my overall fitness levels and body tone, and with Paul’s help have no doubt I will reach and or exceed my original expectations and objectives
Playing a good standard of rugby I needed some specific advanced drills and fitness. Paul is a great trainer, I have used other trainers but they just haven’t been able to take care of my needs.
