Having trained on and off, all over London, I've been keen to find a gym that's not too intimidating..you know what it's like ladies...men hogging the free weights, etc. After years of battling the bulge, I was also keen to find a personal trainer who wasn't a stereotype and majorly scarey..I don't like being shouted at, I don't like being patronised and I hate running machines.
Well, I can honestly say that both, Sarah and James have got it totally sussed... a gym that's affordable, frequented by people like me and you and I have the best trainer in the world. I train with Shahin Shamloo who mixes up my training so that I do pad work one day, work on the gym rings another and has me smashing up a gigantic tyre with a sledgehammer on another! Some days I don't feel like training at all but he has this knack of getting me to do my work out and it's all over before I've had chance to complain!
Other members equally rate Lee, Mr T, Sham and some new Welsh bloke called Niko, who is apparently Cosmopolitan's trainer.
Anyhow, get yourself down there... I've gone from a Size 14 to a 10!
