What to expect

Our Health and Fitness Manager will meet with you to discuss your objectives and what support we can offer, before pairing you with your SportBU personal trainer.

Initially, your trainer will assess your current fitness level (through some exercises and body movements) and then use this as a way to keep track of your progress.

From here on in, each of your personal training sessions will be tailor-made for you and your fitness aims. 

It won't be an easy journey; your trainer will challenge you to push yourself, both physically and mentally, as you work towards your fitness ambitions. But they'll be with you every step of the way, motivating and supporting you as your fitness goals start to become a reality.

Hear from our clients


Since starting my PT sessions, I am much more confident in using the gym and I've seen a positive difference in my strength. The sessions are well thought out and really good fun! At the point you feel like stopping, you'll be encouraged to keep going.


My PT sessions are always challenging, in the best way possible. My trainer has an almost sixth-sense for knowing how far he can push me! I am now far more confident in my fitness journey and would recommend to anyone.
