Here's what our clients have said:
Stephanie Ireland (SFL client of the month and 21 day winner January 2022)
I have been struggling with depression and anxiety for 3 years, while feeling lonely, low on energy and unhappy with my health. I realised I was fed up with these emotions and needed to help myself as I no longer wanted to feel unhappy with my fitness levels. I needed to make a long term change for my family and myself.
I was scrolling through FB and saw Chris talking about the positives of the programme he offered. Chris sounded upbeat about the benefits of Stronger for Longer which encompasses small group PTs, nutritional advice and regular accountability sessions to keep me motivated and feel supported.
Chris, Zoe and Jon are amazing and so compassionate with their clients. They are positive and keep you motivated. Their dedication is apparent from the first phone call, to first accountability meeting, to the first training session. Throughout, they show friendship and a non judgemental attitude. Alongside this, the 6 week foundation programme is a great price.
If I were describing this to my friends I would say it is the best thing I have ever done. Stronger for Longer adapt their service to each individual with a positive, friendly attitude. They make the hour long sessions fun every time and can adapt routines to suit different abilities. You can do as many sessions as you like in the first 6 weeks. They are dedicated to getting the very best results and they are there whenever you need them, messaging back promptly.
I really needed help with my nutrition and food planning. They have a great understanding of what I need to eat, to become healthier. They provide structure and routine to my exercise and diet. I have the energy to do more exercise and the confidence to try more complicated training moves. I love working out in a group of people. I have improved my knowledge of how to train and use gym equipment. I’m confident to push myself to the limit and have a passion to achieve my weight loss target.
I’ve tried other gyms in the past and none offer the support that Body Complete does. I can access good advice from Zoe, Jon and Chris as well as enjoy general chit chat. You get well constructed sessions at an affordable price. This experience means that I can lead a healthier, happier life. I am more confident, have energy to play with my kids and my mental health has improved. The changes I have made I can stick with for the rest of my life. I can become stronger for longer.
Steve Flintoft on Small Group Training
I realised I needed to reignite my passion for fitness. I have always been a keen runner, but I needed advice on looking after the full me. (more…)
I have been training at the Body Complete gym since October 2017 and couldn’t recommend them enough. Full professionalism, huge knowledge that constantly deepens, delivered with an amazing sense of humour! Amazing trainers that will do anything to help achieve your goals. With all my heart and all the muscles I had no idea about, I fully recommend.
But why did I start this fitness journey in the first place?
In 2017 I had dropped the excess weight and wanted to sustain it. I wanted indoor gym sessions having briefly tried bootcamps but soon realised large classes don’t work. No one was correcting technique and I wanted to join somewhere that would actually train me. I knew I wanted to do the exercises correctly. Chris was highly recommended, and my initial goal was to be able to run properly. Chris has a huge knowledge in this area and delivered structured running sessions to improve my technique as part of their programme. And so it began.
I initially chose the small group training programme because they were approachable and I liked the feel of what they offered. I tell all my friends and colleagues about my fitness experience. They are knowledgeable but relaxed. We have fun and yet I know I am covering all aspects of my fitness in each hour’s session. And it’s not just strength and cardio. I might not enjoy a core workout in the same way, but I know I must do it for my running to improve. The coaches are friendly but so are their other clients. We give it our all and inspire each other to try harder, which is motivational.
I knew I really needed help with my tight hamstrings and poor core muscle strength. Chris’ assessment of my functional movement identified the problems and I have followed his advice ever since. I really wanted to run but kept incurring injuries because I wasn’t training right. Now I get expert coaching in a small group setting, plus 1-2-1 access to Chris and his team whenever I need it. I can now train safely on my own and feel motivated to do so. Another positive from my experience is that on 16th Oct 2017 I weighed 91kgs, my visceral fat was 7, my metabolic age was 34 and my body fat % was 21%. On 18th Oct 2021 I weighed 83kgs, my visceral fat is 5, my metabolic age is 20 and my body fat % is 15%. I could not have achieved these incredible results without the team around me.
This experience means a lot to me because I don’t want to be a fat dad who can’t keep up with my two young boys. I want to set them a positive example and lead by that example by being as healthy as possible for as long as possible. I am in my thirties and don’t want to be large again. I feel so much better in myself, and I am going to continue with this fitness journey because my health means a lot to me and my family.
Chris on the path to leaness!
For years I just wanted to be guided by a personal trainer, just for a few months, to have someone watch over me, make sure I was executing exercises correctly, someone to help me keep motivated, get fit and flexible, especially now in my later years. I’ve spent quite a lot of my adult years exercising at home to various videos etc but never knew if I was doing them properly. All the stories I was reading, about people losing weight, changing their body shape, being fit etc all involved a personal trainer. In my head though, all PTs were in the big cities, certainly not in my area of Scarborough, but then I discovered small group personal training.
I plucked up courage to contact Stronger for Longer – only needed the courage because I’d always felt intimidated in these places. I’d tried joining gyms in the past but never stayed as I always felt they were clicky places and I’d feel awkward until I eventually didn’t go back. This fitness provider has never made me feel this way, maybe it’s because the classes are small but more than likely its because the coaches are the very best, and strive to help you reach your goals. Its not easy but as long as you are willing to put the effort in they will be behind you 100%. You couldn’t find a better person than Chris Stringer to coach /train you, he’s a crazy guy who never stops pushing you that extra mile as he wants you to succeed in achieving your goals. All the coaches/trainers are brilliant in their own right and bring their own special format to the table but above all else they are interested in you and what you want to achieve and they also go the extra mile to get you there.
Keeping motivated is really hard for me but with the support of these guys I have managed to turn my few months into a few years and am still going strong. Stronger for Longer is exactly what the name suggests a good all round place to get your health and body on track and keep it there. If your looking to invest your time and money into a good cause, then invest it in yourself by joining the A team, it will be the best thing you ever do.
Sarah’s Fitness Journey
I became a member almost 3 years ago. I was very nervous about joining a gym, being unfit, overweight and over 50. However, Chris and Zoe put me at ease straight away. There was no ‘hard sell’ and I got to do some taster sessions before signing up. The small classes mean that coaches get to know you individually. They adapt exercises to your ability and are endlessly encouraging and supportive. They also offer regular accountability meetings to discuss your goals and keep you on track. The other members are great, so even when classes are challenging you have a laugh. Going to classes is now just part of my routine. I am fitter and stronger than I have ever been. Perhaps best of all, after years of yo-yo dieting, I have managed to drop 2 dress sizes and maintain a healthy weight, without constantly worrying about what I eat and drink.
I’ve always been active throughout my life, mainly running, but I felt it was time for something different, other than clocking up miles. I did a summer boot camp a couple of years ago and loved it. However, due to work commitments and mental health ups and downs, I never kept it going.
Michelle’s thoughts on Body Complete:
I started with Body Complete 3/4 years ago doing the Bootcamp. Chris Stringers motivation, energy and personality got me through two freezing winters on the beach, made me a lot fitter, stronger, thinner and mentally happier. (more…)
Having been a very loyal member for nearly three years, I got a job a bit far away to make it back for core every Friday (Holland).
But I want to tell you all, what the guys at Stronger for Longer train into you doesn’t just help you in the sessions you go to. That stuff is life changing, attitude changing, stuff that sticks with you. I’d still be an avid member if I was back in the UK but now I’m here I started HIIT and kickboxing sessions. And I’m listening to my new trainer as best I can, and he’s good. (more…)
I joined Stronger for Longer because I wanted to lose weight and do a bit more exercise. My weight had been gradually creeping up and I was horrified to find myself a size 16. I was really nervous about being fit enough to do the classes, however Chris and Zoe put me at ease straight away. There was no pressure to join and I had the chance to go to a few classes first, to make sure it was right for me. (more…)
