Phil Spencer trains with Dom Thorpe
TV’s Phil Spencer

Over the last 15 years I have used various gyms as well as personal trainers but the results never seemed to quite match the effort required. I heard about DT Training via a friend and am happy to vouch for the fact that they offer an entirely different experience from anywhere or anyone else I’ve ever trained with. A highly professional consultation and free session at the outset convinced me to give them a go and they have succeeded where others have failed! I’ve been seeing Dom since the start of the year and, as well as being fun, he has managed to keep training sessions varied and challenging as well as informative. I get bored doing the same exercises week after week but he’s still introducing new ones 9 months later. He’s highly qualified and seriously knows his stuff. With Dom’s help I reckon I’m now as fit I was 5 years ago – the goal is to try and be as fit as I was 10 years ago. I couldn’t recommend Dom highly enough!

Personal Training with Dom Thorpe has changed my life.

I came to Dom a few months before my fortieth birthday. I was tired, wasn’t sleeping properly and I had a wardrobe of pre-baby clothes which had not been worn in a decade. Dom provided me with a training program which ensured I was ‘fit at forty’.

The sessions were designed such that they were varied enough to be motivating and fun, but consistent enough to allow me to measure real progress. We worked on strength (I can now do three sets of twenty full press ups) and cardio (I can run around 5k in 30mins).

I turned forty in better shape than I was when I turned twenty.  I’ve dropped two dress sizes (almost 2 stone, 30″ waist jeans to 26″ waist jeans), have loads of energy and feel so much more confident.

We also worked on my diet, where I was encouraged to think about my real priorities when deciding on what to eat each day. I learned how to make sensible substitutions when dining out, swapping wine for gin & slimline and saying no to the bread basket but allowing myself to enjoy a steak – it doesn’t have to be salads all the time.  At no point did I feel hungry or ‘deprived’ and in all my years of dieting, this was a new experience for me.

Dom has helped me make so many positive changes to my life – I eat more healthily, I’m stronger, I’m fitter and I’m happier.

Thank you Dom!

Brigitte Halliday trains with Dom Thorpe Personal Trainer

I’m not overweight but I have been trying to lose a few pounds around my middle that has slowly appeared over the last few years. I kept convincing myself that it would disappear if I kept going to the gym but it didn’t. So I finally decided that I would do something about it.

I asked Dom if he could help me and I committed to a 10 week fitness programme. Dom asked me all sorts of questions from my goals to how I’d like the sessions to be conducted – chatty or Ninja serious!

A 10 week exercise and eating plan was devised and I committed to 4 weeks without alcohol or sugar – a terrifying thought, and to stick to mainly protein based meals. I also followed a gym cardio and weight training programme.

Our weekly 1 hour one to one sessions were pivotal to keep me on track and Dom bought me some pink boxing gloves as a surprise – a really nice touch and we incorporated boxing into the workouts.

Amazingly, I really liked it. I followed the exercise plan in the week (although broke it quite a few times too) but always got back on track.

So 10 weeks later I was finally a few pounds lighter, but more importantly, I had much more muscle definition. And because it was a gradual process – 2 weeks on, I’m back to normal eating and drinking, still exercising, and haven’t gained any of the weight I’d lost.

Dom was easy to work with and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

I’ve done a few triathlons but stupidly I signed up for a race from London to Paris, including a channel swim. I knew I couldn’t do it without putting in some serious training which was when I decided to hire a personal trainer. I found Dom via his website and he really took my fitness to another level. I’m pleased to say that I successfully completed the race and have kept seeing Dom since then.

I’m a bit lazy (understatement) and since leaving Uni I’d gained almost 2 stone. I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror last Christmas and realised that I had to do something about my weight. I enquired with Dom and within 5 minutes I was booked in for a free taster session. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done and I’m even slimmer now than I was when I left Uni. I’m still lazy but Dom really works me hard and I can’t speak highly enough of his services. I also understand what got me into that state in the first place and some fairly straight forward rules which prevent me from going back to that place again.

I assumed that age had gotten the better of me as I approached my wedding year. I met Dom who taught me that age isn’t a factor in my weight gain and that at 30 years old there’s no reason why I can’t be in the best shape of my life. He showed me how the lifestyle I had settled into was responsible for my weight gain and that a few simple changes would make losing weight, toning up and maintaining my body shape a simple task which I can take with me well into my senior years. Dom got me in great shape for my wedding and not only do I look and feel great, but I’m confident that this is the  body and lifestyle I’ll continue to lead for as long as I can-assuming the baby weight doesn’t get the better of me 😉

Merav and Will

We both work long hours and struggle to fit exercise around work and other commitments. Lack of motivation was also a factor and we therefore decided to think about going with a personal trainer.
DT Training was definitely more appealing than other personal trainers we contacted, as they could accommodate our different fitness levels whilst challenging us both using tailored programmes and they didn’t charge extra for training a couple like most personal training outfits would. This meant that we could train together and we have been thrilled with the results.
Since Dom has been our personal trainer Will has lost almost 2 stone, and I have lost almost a stone. This has been done over a 6 month period of 2 personal training sessions per week. We are both much fitter, mastering advanced exercises and running techniques we never thought we could get to on day 1!
Our personal training sessions start at 6am as this is the only time we are both free on a regular basis, and while it’s sometimes a struggle to get up, the exercise makes you feel much more energised! We have no doubt this is only thanks to Dom – whilst we both used to get bored of the same routine at the gym, we now enjoy exercising outdoors and Dom regularly introduces new personal training programmes and different types of workouts to ensure we continue to improve. He works with us to understand our goals and tailors each programme to push us that little bit more!
Dom is a highly recommended personal trainer.

As promised, I’m sending you some Before and After pics, and wanted to thank you for your work and achievement with us for our wedding, we looked our best on our BIG DAY!

The 5:2 diet became a lifestyle to me, mainly for health reasons. Also Duncan started it , both of us are still on one fasting day a week though as maintenance, which help us keep the unwanted kilos away too!

We keep going running, and I’m still doing pole once a week. I keep recommending you to our friends and we might want you back at some point (it’s just that the new house is taking a lot of money from us at the moment)

Hope you like the pics

I cannot recommend Dom from DT training highly enough. He did a fantastic job, helping me get to my target weight for my wedding and toning up my body, so I felt great on my big day.

Lots of people have commented on how my body looks slimmer and more toned and my new husband absolutely loves it!

I feel leaner, stronger and most importantly, I can now do 30 press-ups in a row!

Thank you Dom
