“I'm just so happy to have done it...I say it's absolutely worth it”
When Katherine came to see us, she was unhappy with her bodyweight and body shape after having kids.
Having unsuccessfully tried different diet plans on her own, she wanted to seek the help of professionals to finally get her the results she was after. Katherine is not only in the best shape of her life now, she has regained the confidence that she was lacking before and has also achieved her first chin up!
In 20 weeks, Katherine managed to lose over 10kgs and reduced her body fat by 12% all while drastically improving her fitness levels.

“What a fantastic experience!
My husband and I went in to see what this was all about and were given a very warm welcome. After seeing the gym and having a chat with David about the process, we decided to give it a try. We later met our awesome trainer Fadel, and after training with him for a couple of weeks, we were sure that we had made the right decision in joining Embody.
I’ve done the transformation program and the results I’ve seen are incredible! In just 3 months, I’ve lost 9 Kg’s and 12% of my body fat. I am also the strongest I’ve ever been and feel great overall!
Prior to joining Embody, I was training regularly and had what I thought were good eating habits, but I was still struggling to lose this weight for the past 2 years and had just about given up hope on losing it until I started this program.
I would highly recommend Embody, and especially Fadel as a trainer as he is highly professional and knows how to get the most out of his clients. He is not just a trainer, he has been a great partner throughout this journey, and it is very clear that he’s fully dedicated to his clients and helping them achieve their goals.”

I have been following Embody on Instagram for a while and am always blown away by the client body transformations they post. Turning 40 this year was the push I needed to sort out my health and fitness and to shed the weight I had gained during lockdown and regain my confidence. I joined Embody in August this year for their 3 month body transformation. My first point of contact was David who explained the process to me and their packages. David made me feel extremely welcome with his kind and friendly manner and patiently answered all my questions.
I next met Olivia, my nutritionist. Olivia was involved on a daily basis with all my dietary concerns. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and easy to talk to. I have learnt so much from her and cannot thank her enough for her expertise, time and encouragement. I appreciate how invested she was and how closely she followed my daily tracker. I was pretty clueless in the nutritional department at first but she has made me re-evaluate my relationship with food! Next, I met my wonderful Personal Trainer, Harjeet Singh. He listened to my goals and indeed transformed me! I have lost 10kg in 3 months and 16% body fat. Harjeet was completely focused on me and helped me push my limits in ways I had never imagined. He is a complete professional, talking me through every step of the programme. His daily encouragement and advice has changed my life and I always look forward to our sessions. He is polite and friendly and puts you at ease immediately. So much so that I renewed for another 3 months with him. His dedication and passion to helping me meet my goals was all the motivation I needed. Although I didn't work with any trainer other than Harjeet, it is clear to see all the PTs at Embody are passionate about health and helping people in being better versions of themselves in a fun and safe environment.
I fully recommend Embody to anyone who is wanting to feel great in their skin and literally change their lives. From the lovely ladies at reception, the gym staff and management, everyone is professional, warm, friendly and encouraging. This gym is second to none and so is the staff!

"I first started training at Embody Fitness two years ago during my school summer holidays, I made great progress but unfortunately, I only had time to complete a 4 week taster. Two years on and I am in my peak physical fitness thanks to everyone at Embody Fitness. I have just completed a 12 week transformation programme and I am more than happy with my results.
At Embody Fitness, you are treated as an individual after a quick physical examination the team can put together a specialised training regime tailored to your needs and therefore, have fast effects. I started to see results instantly, which only motivated me more. Joshua, my personal trainer, gave me regular feedback on my technique in the gym and well as extra exercises which I could do in my own time at home. I have had the pleasure of working with a number of the trainers at Embody and they are all welcoming people who really care about their clients.
Since I have completed my transformation, eating healthily and exercising on a daily basis is now a part of my everyday life rather than a ‘chore’ and I feel so much better for it. I have learned a lot at Embody and now I’m pushing myself every day to reach my goals."
Decreased body fat from 30% to 18%
“I signed up for personal training as countless years of trying (and failing) to change my body at the gym had left me feeling frustrated and demotivated. It was immediately apparent that this training regime would require me to overcome some deep rooted beliefs that had plagued me for many years …namely that eating any fat would make me fat, lifting heavy weights would make me bulky and I would not see results without pounding the treadmill for several hours a week. However, a few weeks of following Embody’s diet plan and training regime dispelled those myths as my body fat started to drop and my body shape started to change beyond my imagination.
I would like to thank the team for their tireless commitment and dedication in helping me achieve my dream. They have completely changed my outlook on food and has helped me develop a diet which is not only sustainable but actually allows me to eat more than I used to. Mark is a truly exceptional personal trainer. He has pushed me harder than I thought possible but his unwavering enthusiasm and energy makes every session enjoyable. This experience has changed my life and if you are committed to achieving your dream, they can do the same for you”

“As soon as I walked in the door I knew I was in the right place. The trainers are really focused on my success and designed a bespoke program for me in terms of nutrition, supplements and personal training sessions, together with regular reviews.
This has been the central organising principle of my life this year, and has really transformed the way I look and feel, there is absolutely no way I could have done this on my own. It has completely changed my physique and I feel so much better within myself.”
I joined Embody because I wanted to lose weight for my wedding. After years being unhappy with how I looked in pictures, I decided that my wedding would be finally a time where I decided to make a difference. I chose Embody fitness, because the staff were knowledgable and having had lots of clients having gone through a similar process they seemed like the experts in the field. The initial consultation was thorough asking me about every little aspect of my life, assessing me top to toe to make a tailor-made personalised programme. Charlie is an excellent PT. He worked really hard to help me achieve my goals. He pushed me during each session to my maximum limits and was constantly trying to push me to reach new goals. It’s amazing how much I progressed from the beginning in terms of what I can do with the weights. We also became great friends, and he helped open my mind to lots of new ideas. He was also always happy to be contacted so if I was having an off day, he would help me decide what to do and keep giving me little tips. He really cared.
The thing I liked most about Embody is that everyone at the gym helped me with my goal. Whenever I was in the gym, even PTs who I didn’t work with were checking in on how I was doing. It felt like a real family. As well as losing more weight than I anticipated, one of the big things I learnt from the programme is to to be open minded. I always though that those people that go to the gym regularly and eat healthy is something I could never be. In my head that just wasn’t me or my personality. However the programme showed me that as an individual you can be whoever you want to be and all you have to do is focus your mind on it. I shouldn’t shut myself off because ‘its not me’ . Also my mood was so much better, I felt a lot more happier and positive. I felt empowered to achieve my best in all aspects of my life. I am really proud of my before and after photos. I was shocked to see how I looked before and absolutely stunned with the results. I can’t believe that I can now wear whatever I want, I don’t have to hide particular parts of me and I’m happy for people to take photos of me. The number of compliments I got from friends, family, work colleagues has been overwhelming. A real confidence boost. To anyone thinking about joining the Embody programme I would say its not easy, however the team will help you along every step of the way, and it will be 100% worth it. You will be blown away with the results.

Training at Embody Fitness has not only transformed my body but changed my life. It provides so much more than bespoke, best in class, premier league personal training. After being overweight for over 20 years I did not believe it would be possible to change. I had limited self-confidence and was full of insecurities which had a negative impact physically, socially and professionally. I made the decision to invest in myself and a commitment to change.
From my initial conversation to final training session the support I received at Embody has been immense. The 360-degree approach works. Even before I stepped on the gym floor I had a musculoskeletal assessment, initial measurements, photographs, nutrition plan and supplements to ensure optimum results.
The team were able to design a programme that worked around restrictions from my hip replacement. The nutrition plan was very straightforward to follow. I liked the way there was no weighing and did not take much preparation time, I could also find something on plan at most restaurants too. Joshua my trainer is truly amazing. He knew exactly how to push me to my limit at each session and I loved hearing my % improvements! The structured, statistical approach works, every rep is recorded. I had never trained with weights previously and now I cannot imagine not lifting – the endorphins! My highlight was having the strength to do chin-ups.
The frequency of check-ins with Greg ensured I stayed on track, reduced the temptation to stray, allowed tweaks to be made to the nutrition plan and most importantly the numbers showed the progress I was making. I was shocked by the numbers and % change at each re-test. Others noticed the changes before I did and I had to learn how to accept compliments rather than bat them away. Training has now become an integral part of my day rather than reluctantly squeezing in a session as a chore. Embody has enabled me to be a much stronger person than I ever believed possible, not only physically but in all aspects of my life.

“I was working an office job so had a very sedentary lifestyle. Eventually my weight snowballed; I wasn’t being very active at all. It got to a point where I didn’t feel like myself anymore, I was carrying all this extra weight and everything was much harder than I remember it – I was like, “is this really me?” At that point I knew I had to do something about it. And then I found Embody. The journey at Embody felt like it was customised to me. I was paired with Joshua, my personal trainer, and from the get-go it was really easy to work with him, I felt completely at ease. He would push me and continue to motivate me at the same time which was great. The programme itself wasn’t easy, but the team made it as simple as possible. With the training, all I had to do was show up – everyone else did the rest for me. In terms of the nutrition – the whole programme was shaped around my lifestyle instead of being a short term fix – for example, they could have just given me recipes to cook but instead it was more based around portion control, so over the course of the programme it taught me how to be better with the food that I eat, and be more disciplined – and that worked really well.
In the first 3 months I lost around 20 kilos, so a lot! It’s hard to believe I was carrying all that extra weight. It’s shocking to see how much can change in such a short period of time. The main thing I say to others is that it is entirely possible to get the results that you want, there is only one thing you need to do which is show up and be consistent with the diet – the rest just follows. It’s worth investing a short period of your time in order to make that change happen.”

"Weam wanted to get stronger, build muscle, and improve her overall lifestyle. She wanted sustainable results that would last. Not a short-term fix that would not lead to any lasting change.
After joining Embody, Weam and her coach created a clear plan of action to move toward her goals. They identified the biggest obstacles and how she would work around them to stay on track. All Weam had to do was take action consistently.
Fast forward 1 year from her first session and Weam has exceeded all her expectations for what she’d hoped to accomplish.
Weam dropped 12% in body fat, reduced her waist down by more than 10cm and achieved a stronger, healthier, leaner body.
This was done by training 3 times a week at the gym with her coach, building healthy nutrition habits, and prioritizing her health and well-being."
