I have lost over two stone since been workin out with Pete. My life has changed so much from wearing baggy clothes to feeling fantastic in what I wear and enjoy every second off it. I have struggled for years with my diet but with Pete’s diet plan and help and support I am finally getting to where I want to be, when having a bad day and struggled with my diet almost took the fridge door off, your motivation kept me going knowing that all the hard work you put in with myself I have never wanted to let Pete down, he is one in a million and has changed my life forever [in helping me and pushing me to achieve my goals]. I highly recommend him, he’s brill 🙂

I’ve been working out with Pete for around 6 months. What a guy! I’d never been to the gym before, so when I first started I had no clue on what to do. I kind of felt lost haha. Pete was very helpful and really made me feel okay about been there. Any questions I had about anything to do with the equipment or the training he was giving me he just answered or showed me. He doesn’t judge you and is really patient with you. He really knows what he’s doing! When your there training he knows your limits, and when to stop but still pushes you to do more. You always have a laugh with him too, which makes it more fun. Great personal trainer and I would recommend to any one! Don’t be scared of joining up or anything you won’t regret it!

Pete is the key your looking for if you want real change! I have been committed with training everyday for 2 years before starting with pete. I needed help to get me to the next level and needed to find somebody who was serious about the gym and serious about the lifestyle like I am and he is most definitely that guy. He’s changed my full diet, my workouts and overall Improved my knowledge and mindset that I can now take with me for years to come. He’s gone out his way many times and it’s them little extra things that always make the difference for me. He’s full of knowledge and massive value for money for the amount he teaches you. Happy I met him and will use again. Thank you again Pete 💪👍

I met Pete about 18 months ago after my friend recommended him as I had been trying to recover from a carb training diet plan that didn’t work for me. Pete put a plan together which was great but my weight loss began to stall again. So after a few more tweaks, Pete has produced a diet/training plan that works perfectly for me. I’m not hungry and I have so much more energy. Pete has fantastic nutrition expertise and he fits the plan around you, what you like, what you don’t. I train with Pete once a month. His training is always hard but fun and he pushes you a lot. He really motivates me, chasing me to check when I’ve not done something and checking to make sure everything is ok. Pete is committed, driven and always gets the best out of his clients.
I’d recommend Pete to anyone wanting to train hard (you will be sore and hurt) or to anyone starting weight training ?

I started training with Pete at the end of January this year, I wanted to lose some weight and tone up a bit to help me feel more confident again in myself after having my kids. He set out with a nutrition plan as I am a self confessed lover of all things sweet and bad for me, and this plan combined with the training has worked miracles. Not only have I lost weight and toned up to the point I am now in a dress size I never, ever in a million years thought I would see as it is even beyond my pre pregnancy size. It has given me the confidence to also start cooking which sounds stupid but I never did before. I now feel so much more energised and motivated to keep going, and it’s all thanks to Pete. He is a brilliant confidence giver, motivational and always around at the end of the phone to offer help and advice. I’m so glad I bit the bullet to train with him, as I have seen results I never thought were possible.

2 stone and 4 pounds lost at the time of this (Pete)

After trying the gym for the last 15years and not getting the results I wanted, I decided to look for a PT. I booked a 12 week plan with Pete Gawtry with the goals of some weight loss and toning up. I never expected the results we achieved.I over excelled myself with both. Pete is a world class trainer with a very professional work ethic and knowledge that is second to none. Not only did I over achieve inside the gym but gained in self confidence as a person and can only thank Pete for this. He makes training fun with unreal results. Thank you Mate and see you again soon!

Pete Gawtry is a genius. He has helped me loose over 2 stone. What he did was not only train me physically, but give me the mental strength and drive to achieve more than I thought was possible, through support and encouragement. The diet advise was invaluable and the plan he put me on really worked. I would recommend Pete to any man or woman, that really needs a push in the right direction. Pete I appreciate all the time you have dedicated to helping me get the weight off, you are fantastic!

I first came into contact with Pete back in January 2018 on a post he did on the over 40s bodybuilding group and I was looking for someone who could help me with diet advice to start the year for a two month diet plan to see if I could get to a point to decide if I wanted to compete in July 2018. After the contact and prices agreed Pete took all my information about food preferences and stats and ask my goals. Very quickly and very professionally a plan was returned breaking down foods for all meals broken down and weight/ amount giving me my perfect diet but more importantly macro balance. Through out the two months Pete was always there to help and guide me and I can’t thank him enough for the end results and putting me on the right track for my show in July and was the best money I have ever spent and now I have the diet to use again and again so was a fantastic investment. We all think we know how to put on muscle and lose fat but listen to the wrong advise for years- I will never return to my old ways of eating now this masters champion has put me on the right route. Thanks so much Pete for all your advise help and guidance for which was all done remotely.

So I came to train with Pete about 5 months ago after he started to train my husband, I saw instant results so thought I would give him a try, as I wanted to loose the last of my baby weight. I was so nervous as I suffer panic attacks he made me feel instantly at ease and what can I say I lost the remaining weight in the first week. He designed me a nutrition plan that worked with my everyday lifestyle and I saw instant results. I continued to train with him as I also wanted to tone up. He’s a great man, it does not matter what time or day it is, he’s only a text away for support and questions answered. I feel fitter more confident and I have so much more energy. I also know so much more about nutrition. I’ve been able to use that towards feeding my children so we have all benefited from it, a big thank you and keep up the good work Pete..

Training with Pete has been an excellent and fun experience!

Pete took time to understand my goals, motivations and tailor a programme to suit me.  Pete was observant of aspects of exercise that motivate/demotivate me and set the workout around this to ensure we optimised each session for the best results and grew my confidence in my capabilities.

He is dedicated & extremely knowledgeable in his field and took time to explain technical information around diet/exercise in clear and accessible way.

Applying Pete’s programme (alongside the therapeutic coaching techniques I use personally) has meant I can build a whole new outlook that feels simple to maintain.

Over the 12 sessions I have become 2.5 stone lighter!  I am stronger and fitter which means I am able to return to other exercises without causing myself injury!

The programme has given me an excellent foundation for long lasting changes.

I would highly recommend Pete’s approach and focus to anyone ready and driven to take on a healthier and more active lifestyle.  I will be recommending him to others in particular coaching clients who may be looking for a well-round approach to improving their health and achieving weight loss.

Been training with Pete for about 5 months and started seeing instant results, pushes you to limit to get the job done, plenty of doms from the workouts which leaves you wanting more , cracking meal plans, not like some of the boring meal plans out there, helps you to the best he can to get you to the shape you want to be, he’s helped me loads and will defo be training with him for some time to come.

I’ve been training with Pete since the end of February after wanting to get fit and tone up to improve my self confidence. I’d seen the results for myself after starting a healthy diet when my wife started training with Pete back in January. Since being with Pete I’ve had a healthy diet plan and training twice a week and so far have lost 3 stone.
Pete is an amazing guy full of motivation and support. I also have issues with my joints due to arthritis and Pete has helped manage this by recognising when things are too much and knowing when to push harder with other things.
He’s a great bloke to train with, I can have a laugh, be myself and get results all at the same time.
It’s even given me the confidence to go train at the gym on my own which is something I would have never done before.
I seriously recommend him to anyone wanting to loose weight, get fit and gain confidence.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the dedication, motivation and direction you have shown my Dad and I over the last 12 weeks

Although the sessions have been demanding, they have been fun – in the main – and I feel and look so much better than I did before. 

As someone who had never stepped foot in a gym before I started our sessions, you have made me realise how fun and rewarding it can be.  Numerous people have commented on my weight loss and I would have no hesitation in recommending you in the future.

Thanks again and see you when I get back from Rio!
