Why do I go to the gym? To lose weight and get fitter

Why do I go to the Better Body Group gym? To lose weight and get fitter and, because somewhat perversely, I enjoy it! How could you not. Everyone from the staff on the front desk to all the trainers make you feel so welcome. You are given masses of encouragement from everybody even when you may have never had a training [...]

“I smashed the challenges”

For the couple of months prior to embarking on a 6 week fitness challenge, I had been dipping in and out of training sessions with my mum at the Better Body Group. I really enjoyed the sessions but did not feel committed as I was not working towards any specific goal and I had no [...]

Lucy has been amazing

The word ‘exercise’ always had negative connotations in my head - although I knew I wanted to tone up and get fitter, I lacked the motivation and partner to get up and do it! My school gym would have the basic machines and equipment but I would have no clue how to use them, making [...]

Running was painful, and I couldn't squat, plank or do much other than basic exercises. With the help of my wonderful trainer Lucy, who has [...]

If she says I can do it, I know I can

Every time I go through the door of the Better Body Group I am reminded of why I’m here. I love the friendly greeting I receive, always by name, each time I enter the gym by all of the trainers. Like all clients, I am made to feel welcome and valued. And each time I [...]

I would not hesitate to recommend her

I cannot be described in any shape way or form as one of life's natural gym goers, most of my time playing sports had reached that stage where my prowess improves with the telling rather than the doing. That is until I met Lucy, to say the transformation has been remarkable is an understatement and [...]
