"After the pandemic I realised that during lockdown I had put on a lot of weight. Throughout my life I have always been skinny, and always enjoyed going to the gym and staying fit, but this 1.5 years worth of lockdown I realised that I had grown a massive belly.
Someone in my family- for the first time in my life, pointed out that I was getting fat so I realised that now that the lockdown restrictions have been lifted I should be joining a gym.
I didn't want to go to a commercial gym, I wanted to go to a place where I had proper advice, where I would have a dedicated fitness trainer and I could get dietary related advice as well. Hence I googled it, and the first thing that came out was Embody Fitness.
Because it was a big financial commitment I wanted to be 100% sure this was the right place for me. The beauty of Embody Fitness was that I reached out to them and I was able to schedule a session where they would give me an introduction to the gym, their facilities, and how the programme works, so that cleared all the minor doubts I had.
In the past I have always done training which was targeted towards building muscle. How it would work is that I would go to a personal trainer, he would give me a programme that I would follow for 3 to 4 months and I used to aim to build muscle. However, at Embody Fitness, the programme was constantly refreshed, the trainer was with me in every session making sure my form was correct, my technique was correct, that meant better results, quicker results.
I started noticing the results within the first 3 weeks, I noticed I had lost weight, I lost body fat. The beauty of Embody Fitness was that every 3 weeks they did checks so I was able to stay up to date with my progress. When I started I weight 80 kilos, now I weigh less that 70 kilos, so I lost 10 kilos in total and also built muscle at the same time - my body fat percentage has dropped to 12.5%
My journey has had an incredibly positive impact on my life, first of all, before I started I used to feel lazy - because I was working from home, I used to feel like sleeping during the day, just tired and not very active. Now, I feel active, I actually feel refreshed, and because I know about nutrition now I am eating the right things so I feel healthier. I don't feel as thirsty because I am not eating as much oily food and takeaways, so it has had a positive impact and I feel more confident.
My family were shocked, they were very pleased, they actually couldn't believe it was such a simple formula, you need discipline and you need to stick to that formula, people tend to overcomplicate. I told them about this simple formula and they were quite impressed.
I would like to thank Embody Fitness, I never thought I could achieve this transformation within 3 months. I am honestly, shocked and overly pleased and I have learned so much about nutrition. I think this is the major takeaway, not only was my body transformed, I also gained key knowledge about nutrition. I will tell anybody to pursue it.
If you are serious about changing, transforming your body and feeling healthier, active and more energetic, this is the place to come. It’s worth every penny."

"Embody gym has been awesome to me. Their trainers are exceptional, the overall vibe is great, and I have had nothing but good experiences. I recommend them to my friends and family.
It was my first experience with Embody Fitness and they did not disappoint! I trained at Embody 3 times a week by joining the well worth 12 week Transformation Programme, but ended up extending for another 12 weeks. I never expected to see such great results. I first weighed 78kg and had 31% body fat, and today I weigh 59.5kg and am sitting at 12.9% body fat. I must say that I have been to many gyms and have had many trainers, but none of them gave me the body I have now.
I feel deeply indebted to Mr. Harjeet Singh, my personal trainer. He really helped me get back in shape. I feel like I am healthier and happier than I was before. He guided me all the way with instant feedback and adjustments during the workouts and with the right amount of encouragement. Most importantly, he gave me confidence, and I am extremely thankful to him for believing in me when I did not even believe in myself. This journey has been life changing!
It has been an amazing experience with an incredible trainer, and I'm very proud of what I managed to achieve at Embody. Thank you so much for all the support along the way."

Deniz realized that his lifestyle wasn’t conducive to what he believed a healthy mind and body should entail.
He wanted to ensure that this part of his life, health and fitness, was given the attention that it fully deserved.
Accepting that a change needed to be made, he decided to join Embody and start personal training under the guidance of his coach Fadel Saadeddine.
Here’s what Deniz had to say:
“Since this was my first time working with a personal trainer, I had no expectations as to how things would go so I walked into it with an open mind.
My goal was to create the habit of going to the gym consistently and feel comfortable throughout the entire process as it’s been a very long time since I created any momentum with this action.
Looking back at my journey, the entire coaching experience has been a revelation and the results have been astounding!”
After joining Embody and working with Fadel, Deniz lost 16kg and 19% body fat. In addition to improving his body shape and looking his best, he was able to move away from his old lifestyle and create the habits necessary to finally be consistent with his health and fitness.
“Working alongside Fadel has been brilliant and I feel very lucky to have met such a professional who has guided me from my old ways and body to a new outlook in terms of how to remain fit and healthy throughout life.
Fadel has a great ability to listen carefully to how I feel and adapt the program to suit where our goals lie in the future. He can also foresee where I would like to be before I can see it. We are now working towards new goals beyond what we have achieved to see where we can end up.
That means the psychological barrier has been broken and new habits have been formed. For me that has been the biggest achievement.”

Over the past few years Andrew's work and the travel that came along with it became the main priority but the impact it was having on his health was quite significant.
He developed poor nutrition and sleep habits, picked up new injuries, and felt a lot of mental fatigue. All of this was affecting Andrew's health as well as his ability to focus and perform at the highest level as a business owner and CEO.
Andrew tried to fix everything on his own but wasn’t seeing much results and felt like hit a plateau. At that point he decided it was time to put his trust in someone else and see how far he can go working with a personal trainer for the first time.
Here’s what Andrew had to say about his Embody experience and the results he achieved with the help of his coach Fadel.
“The results have been very rewarding. For all my goals I have surpassed my expectations and enjoyed the whole experience.
Following Fadel’s guidance and attention to detail with the training, I’ve built so much strength around the areas I wanted to improve on to the point where I no longer feel any pain around my knees or shoulder and I’m able to run again as well as train without any discomfort.
Throughout this process, my body fat has also reduced from 18 to 11%, stress levels have gone down, blood work has improved significantly, and the fact that I feel better and I am enjoying my training again is the best outcome.
My experience at Embody has been great. The whole ambience is about improving and getting results. In terms of having a motivating training environment, I would say this is outstanding and something I’ve never seen before.
Fadel as a trainer and guide through my transformation has been patient and incredibly professional. He has incredible knowledge and can see that potential long before you can and takes the task of fulfilling your potential very seriously. I am extremely grateful to him and would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a serious improvement in their lives.

“This is a complete holistic experience to getting your life in order”
At 63 years of age, Philip had recovered from a serious case of Covid-19 that forced him to reflect on his future and what he could do to provide him with the best chance to live a long and healthy life.
Before joining Embody, Philip was doing lots of cardio and fasting regularly in an attempt to lose weight which worked up to a certain point.
But he eventually reached a stage where he wasn’t making any more progress with his body composition or strength.
He felt like he went from “fat to skinny fat” and recognised that resistance training was essential but was uncertain how to approach it so he decided to seek professional support and started personal training at Embody.
Here’s what Philip had to say about his Embody experience working alongside his coach, Fadel.
“It was a revelation.
The main surprise was that the training at the gym was only a fraction of the overall program. There were several other areas I had to work on such as nutrition, sleep, stress, and my overall mindset that were hugely important.
My goals were to improve my strength and body shape. My trainer Fadel and I attacked that by reducing my body fat from 19.5% to 9.7% as the primary goal. Along the way I lost 10kg from 78Kg to 68kg, which is the lightest I have even been since I was a teenager!
This has all happened “on auto-pilot” where I just followed the plan and the results simply appeared naturally as part of the journey.
I found that the Embody program was a perfect way to take advantage of the Covid era of remote work and limited travel. It was a unique opportunity to improve the most important thing in life, health and vitality, without the usual distractions.”
Reduced body fat by 10%
“Before Embody I was a typical desk jockey and I never looked at what I was eating – I would just grab what was easy or nearby. Then, throughout the pandemic I ate a lot of takeaways… I was eating two takeaway pizzas a week at one point!
Eventually I reached a rut and wanted to change my life, so I put a google search out for body transformations/ weight loss and Embody came up as “the go-to place” so I thought I would check it out.
I’ve been to commercial gyms before and I’ve often lacked the motivation, so I was a bit hesitant at first due to the investment. I wondered if I would drop off, but then I thought, for what I want to achieve I’ll need specialist help – with a team that really knows what they’re doing, maybe they will give me the tools I need to own it. After speaking with Danny I decided to go for it…
I’ve done running workouts on my own in the past and have also had a few personal trainers in commercial gyms – they’ve always felt very rushed, and I felt like the sessions were just a box checking exercise. Embody was a game-changer.
The team at Embody really take the time to get to know you, they always take the time to ensure you’re getting the movements right, and work with you to get the results you desire. After one hour in the gym you really feel like you’ve had an intense workout.
I noticed results from month one. Two weeks in it was challenging but I stuck with the programme and as soon as I saw the results, I was motivated to keep on pushing forward.
Since starting I’ve lost over 4.5 stone – and a foot around my waist! It’s been totally life-changing, the best thing for me is having confidence in myself and knowing I have a healthy platform to build on. The way people interact with me has changed, they can tell I have more energy and I feel better in myself. It’s by far the best thing I’ve ever done – it’s the best investment I’ve made in myself. I’m so glad I didn’t stay sitting on the couch after lockdown!
My friends and family don’t recognise me, even these days – when I approach someone with a face mask on, they don’t recognise me walking up to them. They’re absolutely thrilled for me and can see how much effort I have put into making this positive change.
The most powerful lesson I have learnt is nothing is impossible – it takes little steps to make big changes. The way Embody break the journey down into a step by step, day by day process has really been the key thing for me – I’ve also applied this strategy into other aspects of my life – so big tasks don’t seem impossible now.
My advice to anyone considering starting is take the plunge! It’s easy to sit there and think I’ll do it next year – I’ll do it whenever. My advice is do it now – don’t put it off any longer!”
Went from 103kgs to 74kgs in 7 months
I joined Embody to get stronger as I was experiencing many injuries from the HIIT workouts I was doing that would keep me out for a long while until I recovered. My goal was to strengthen and condition my upper body to be less susceptible to injuries in the future moving forward.
After my wife, Tamara, and I met with David at Embody and explained our goals, he set us up with our trainer, Fadel who was with me every step of the way. He made me feel that the journey was a collaboration rather than instructional and one-sided. Fadel is an experienced coach who knows his stuff and able to adapt his approach to difficult situations and road bumps I was facing as they occurred along the way.
Looking back at my transformation, I am very happy with the results I have achieved. I have been injury free during the entire process and I am stronger and in better shape now than I have ever been! I also feel I have better mental clarity as this journey gave me something to focus on during the COVID pandemic aside from my work which helped me make healthier choices.
Embody is the place to train and feel safe during these turbulent times. And Fadel is your go-to guy. He will be there to help you through your journey every step of the way. Training at Embody requires commitment, so you need to bring your A game to the table. It’s a matter of discipline and focus, the rest you can leave to your coach to mold you into something quite unique.

"My obstacles, for many years, has been the thinking that I do not have the time to exercise and would rather spend my free time brunching and leading a generally unhealthy lifestyle. I had exercised and dieted in the past but my time at Embody is the first time that I have fully committed to changing myself.
When I started at Embody, shortly after my 39th birthday, I did not really know what my goal was. I just wanted to look good for my 40th. Simply put, I have surprised myself and feel I am ready for my 40th with a few months to spare.
A big change has been in my mindset. I now believe I am worth the time and effort to maintain a healthier lifestyle. I feel lighter on my feet and when I go running it feels much more enjoyable. I have also been taking spinning classes and because of my transformation I am able to really push myself in the classes while still having fun. I love that I can now go out and buy better fitting clothes!
My trainer Fadel had a very calm, composed and professional approach where he was able to push my boundaries and achieve results I never thought were possible. I found the openness with Fadel, in particular around my nutrition, really helped me to stay on track with my transformation.
Embody is worth every penny when it comes to investing in yourself."

"I joined Embody fitness with certain goals and it's safe to say that I reached them and some more. I wanted to look Lean again and lose excess fat all whilst increasing my cardiovascular capability for other sports.
I lost 12kg and 10% of body fat which was above my expectations and this was due to the intense sessions by Harjeet who also monitored the food intake daily and was monitoring weight and fat on a weekly basis. I was also feeling stronger and fitter each week.
As I was becoming leaner he was adjusting my calories and I could also see that I was adding muscle in a controlled way. Harjeet was getting the best out of me in the PT slot from high intensity sessions to building muscle all whilst becoming leaner. We also were ensuring that I felt good and the shape of my chest and abs were showing which gave me the motivation to push harder.
Sessions have been intense and motivating, there’s nothing better than feeling like you’re achieving your goals at the gym. Harjeet also stays in touch through the day to ensure you’re not losing track of the end goal.
I would recommend the plan to any individual as it can be a life changer if you stick to the plan. It is safe to say I will be continuing with Harjeet here. You’ll also feel healthier day to day at work and other sporting activities in your spare time.
Thank you guys"

To start off, I have never liked gyms or ever thought of going to a gym! Last time I tried was 15 years ago and I only lasted for 2.5 weeks and was absolutely bored, no motivation and no objective whatsoever... 2020 was tough for everyone, my wife encouraged both of us to start looking for a place to change some of our habits - mainly eating and we wanted to start exercising but not in normal gyms.
We visited a couple of places and looked for transformation programs in Dubai, and to be honest the first time we stepped foot in Embody - we just got attracted and attached. Even before we met David - the ambience of the place, the amount of sunlight and the brightness of it just felt right.
David is an amazing consultant, he talks you through your objectives, priorities and what you want to achieve. And that talk just made us feel we can start right away.
The first couple of weeks were very stressful and challenging, but with the guidance of my trainer and nutritionist everything made so much sense, it's not only a body transformation program but it's an educational one as well.
I have learned a lot of things about my body, how important sleep is and what it means to live a healthy lifestyle.
With determination, consistency and focus, it all came through. I can't thank the Embody family enough from the trainers, nutritionists and everyone who is part of this organisation. They all make you feel very welcome and this fills you with a lot of positive energy at all times.
That being said, Embody is not just a GYM, it's where you redefine your lifestyle and health goals.
Lost over 12kgs of fat

I started at 104kg and 38% body fat.
I turned to Embody for the 12 week programme as my health was in a very bad state. They truly delivered! They turned my life around and I can’t see myself going to any other gym. I completed the 12 week programme and the results were amazing. I was not the same man that started. Even after the 12 weeks I decided to stay on and truly push my body to the limits.
I am currently at 80kg and 16% fat. This is still dropping. The Embody gym is very clean cut with a no bull**** approach to training. The equipment is to athletic standards and are always kept very well maintained and cleaned. I love the fact I had a whatsapp group to keep in touch at all times. The personal trainers are all friendly and have a real passion for fitness.
The best advice I can give is follow the programme, trust the programme and watch the results come in. These guys know exactly what they doing.
I would finally like to thank James for the great results. Truly changed me. Sessions where tough but the results speak for themselves. Also I would like to thank Tim for dealing with my nutrition and making sure what I ate was exactly what my body needed for the changes.
If you're not at Embody, you're not training right.

"I started my fitness journey with Embody last year when I moved to Dubai from Singapore as I was looking for a fresh start on my fitness goals. I had in the past put this as a secondary goal but decided that for myself this needed to change as I was overweight as well as having low energy levels.
My main goals from the start has been to lose the excess weight I had gained over the past few years with bad diet habits as well as not really doing enough exercise to sustain this.
Going forward I needed to change my mind set to a different direction as well as self-motivation to achieve what I want.
With this in mind that I have managed to increase my strength as well as losing weight I had gained in the past as well as feeling more energetic. Also, I have been learning lots of new techniques on various lifting movements which has been great as I found I have been able to achieve more than I ever expected to do as well as a good educational tool for oneself.
It’s never easy at the start but once you get into a routine the benefits are worth it. With the right training advice, diet and patience you can achieve results you are looking for."

"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."

We’re incredibly proud of John who went from 30% body fat down to just 15% on a 6 month Body Transformation Programme, shedding 15 kgs of fat in the process.
A great testament to what hard work and dedication can really achieve – well done John. John always gave it 110% in the gym and was a pleasure to train. His hard work and commitment really did pay off!

“Everybody has a different motivation for wanting to get in shape. Mine came in the form of 4 children kindly pointing out that I was “getting quite large like Granddad”. Even looking in the mirror it’s not something that you necessarily want to acknowledge or accept however.
I had tried various gyms and personal training plans previously to no avail. Too much time had been spent in the office and my daily 5 hour commute was beginning to take its toll, all compounded by having had significant back problems for the last 4 years due to a climbing fall. I realised I needed to do something and invest some time into looking after my health.
From the first time you step into the Embody gym you realise that there is something different and special about it. From my initial consultations with both Chris and Greg it was clear that they were listening to what I wanted to achieve and develop a training and nutrition plan that would help me achieve those goals, rather than just following a standard formula.
Having got over the initial shock of the first weigh in (107kg) and body fat check (36%) I stepped into the gym to meet my personal trainer Tom. From the first session it was clear that he was as motivated as I was to get good results. We settled on pattern of 3 training sessions a week, the training programme was adapted and amended to keep my body guessing and develop muscle growth whilst burning as much fat as possible. Tom left me broken but with a smile on my face after each session… despite the weighted sled pushing!
I was shocked how quickly my body began to change, sticking closely to the food plan and training regime, my body fat started to drop and I was begging to put on lean muscle. I was surprised how many people noticed the changes before I did, The food plan was straight forward to stick to and became habit rather than a chore and I was surprised how much energy I had even having cut out carbs for the first few weeks.
Regular checks with Greg helped monitor progress and set realistic new targets and goals. The progress was staggering as I surpassed my own expectations at each session. By the end of the first 12 weeks my body fat had dropped by 22% down to 14%, my weight was down to 85Kg. I’d also lost 5 inches off my waist, a problem no tailor can solve and has left me with the requirement for a new wardrobe as none of my clothes now fit me!
This has left me motivated to carry on working with the team at Embody to see how far I can push myself and achieve even greater levels of fitness. Even going away on holiday Tom gave me a body weight programme to use to maintain my momentum. The result being as we start the next phase of training my weight is down to 81.6 KG and body fat down to 12%.
I would like to thank Chris, Greg and Tom for helping me achieve my goals, Tom is a great personal trainer he has pushed me harder and further than I thought possible, all done with great energy and even humour when the going got tough. I would happily recommend the Embody team to anybody; they really will help you transform yourself.”

“When I was active it was easy for me to drink and eat what I wanted, and I would never get any heavier than about 15 stone [95kg]. When you’re 6ft 4in [1.93m] your height can hide a multitude of sins, but at the end of last year I was struggling to fit into anything I could buy on the peg. I had a 38in waist: I remember thinking, ‘That’s quite big’.”
“My training with Chris was intensive, tough, but good fun. I mentioned to him that parts of my body that I didn’t know existed were hurting, and I thought I was physically unable to do the things he wanted me to do, he said it’d get easier and I didn’t believe him.
But he was right. The real education for me came along with my new diet. I didn’t know the difference between protein and carbohydrate; I’d never taken much notice of what exactly it was that I was eating – or how much of it I consumed. I’d be in the studio at 5am, then I’d have a breakfast at 6.30am and maybe another one at 8.30am, and it was sausage or bacon sandwiches, tonnes of coffee… looking back it’s kind of shocking. People persuade themselves that they ‘need’ a big breakfast to start the day, but it’s just what they’ve always had. Now I have two eggs with porridge and that’s it.”
“I’m in the best shape I’ve been in for over a decade. You see it in the little things, like running upstairs: a year ago, I was carrying an extra three stone up. I feel brighter, my complexion’s better, all of those things. To anyone thinking of changing their own lifestyle, my advice is simple: Don’t be afraid of the challenge. The hardest bit is the first couple of weeks. Then it keeps getting better.”
Lost 14% body fat
“I’d let my training go over the years and although my diet was good, I had excess weight in places which I couldn’t ever shift. I also wanted to build strength and muscle and that’s why I signed up to Embody.
I’ve had the best training anyone could want for at Embody and achieved results that I could I really aspired to.
The transformation wasn’t just aesthetic but also changed my mindset to future training and nutrition, allowing me to continue developing my exercise and fitness beyond the one-on-one training. I learnt a huge amount about correct training techniques and nutritional approach to food.
Over my programs I was trained by Tim Richards, Greg Cornthwaite and Chris Walton, all experts in transforming bodies, dedicated and detailed in their attitude and vision to see you succeed.
Every workout was challenging and supportive and I looked forward to every session.
I couldn’t be happier with how I look and feel today.”

“I would like to thank everyone at Embody for the part they played in my transformation, especially Marcel, Tom and Jess. Embody is an amazing gym with a special and friendly feel to it. Starting as a complete novice, I never once felt embarrassed or weak as I have done many times are other gyms or classes.”
“Everyone at Embody Fitness contributes to this. Rose and Laura on reception are very friendly and take an interest in your development offering encouragement and compliments along the way.”
“Tom gave me my nutritional advice and spends lots of time explaining the science behind it and really helped me understand exactly what I needed to eat and when. I thought the diet would be the hardest part about the transformation but with Tom’s help it became very simple and enjoyable. He has now completely changed my mind-set towards food.”
“My training sessions were with Marcel. I cannot speak highly enough of this man! He made training fun, I always looked forward to the sessions and felt comfortable knowing that Marcel would push me the right amount and never let me risk injury. His knowledge of the human anatomy and how to train is incredible. Being in the hands of an expert allowed me to relax and enjoy the sessions and never worry about what else was going on around me. A key part to the success of my training has been how much I have enjoyed it. It was by no means easy but it became very addictive and enjoyable and a huge part of that is because of Marcel.”
I would also like to thank Jess who trained me whenever Marcel wasn’t available. She was great fun to train with and I really enjoyed our sessions. Jess is a lot of fun to be around and really knows her stuff and is good at getting the most out of me!”
“My body transformation with Embody has been one of the best things I have ever done. It has been completely life changing, not only do I look better but I feel better and that has really helped me in all areas of life.”
Thanks again to everyone!”

I had been training on a more or less regular basis for the last couple of months and made an effort to eat more healthily in order to lose weight and get into shape, but was not seeing any real results. I therefore wanted to sign up with Embody to see whether their programme could kick-start my transformation and give me the motivation I needed.
My trainer and nutritionist both asked me at the beginning of the programme how committed I was. At the time, my honest answer was 7 out of 10. I was willing to work hard and make certain sacrifices, but was not willing to give up all my bad habits, such as the occasional drink here or there. The team took on board my comments and did not try to impose on me a programme that was more restrictive than I was willing to commit to, but instead gave me helpful and practical advice how best to minimise the negative impact of any bad choices I was going to make. Ultimately, however, I ended up following the programme more strictly than I had originally intended, and was blown away by the results I was seeing after the first week already. The results spoke for themselves and gave me the motivation to give 100%.
It was great to have a whole team working with me. Whilst I was able to discuss any nutritional issues with my trainer, it was amazing to have an extra resource in the form of a nutritionist (Danny) who would ensure my diet was adjusted throughout the programme to reflect the progress I had made and the targets we had set. Regular assessments with my nutritionist were extremely motivating and helped me keep on track. Working with Embody’s sports therapist was an added bonus. Whilst it wasn’t my initial goal, I now feel less aches and pains and workout even more effectively.

“I have lost about a stone by doing cardio before joining Embody however i didn’t want to end up just being skinny so I decided to join embody and gain muscle tissue as well as learn how to lift and what to do on the gym floor. Embody seemed to be the perfect match for me, close to work and an all-round programme with nutrition sessions as well as personal training sessions.
The Director made me welcome when I attended my consultation, the programme was very appealing and it was clear they were professional. The Sports Therapist assessed me before I started my programme to make sure I didn’t do any exercises I shouldn’t be, and to make sure I performed exercises within my limitations, then my nutritionist Tom set up my individualised nutrition programme to take me through the coming weeks.
My personal trainer Vicky is professional, she looks after my form and also explains why we do what we do. She is also a great listener and knows when to push you and when to pull back. The programme has been hard but very rewarding, it makes you feel accomplished when you gave it your all and achieve amazing results. I wish I had done it earlier!
The team approach is really what sets Embody apart. It is great to have accountability not only to my trainer but to my nutritionist too. When I had any niggles I could also easily book into a sports therapy session to make sure it didn’t get in the way of me achieving my goals.
My journey with Embody has had the biggest impact on my confidence and my everyday life. I am a lot happier in my body and it shows on the outside too. I feel like I have more energy to do my daily job now and more focus at work.
In terms of long term benefits – I have learned how to lift! I am deadlifting more than my bodyweight and I have also learned new habits and how to maintain my new weight and now set up a goal to gain more muscle.
When I saw my after before and images I was speechless. I am completely amazed by what I have achieved. I keep asking myself why I didn’t do this before! My coworkers have all been asking what am I doing… as well as my children!
To anyone who might be considering a programme at Embody… all I can say is “Do it!”. You are not going to regret it. Take control of your life and take control of your habits. I wish I took ownership of my health and my body earlier, but it is never too late!”

"Embody has been an absolute revelation. From the first meeting with my coach, Fadel, I realized that Embody’s approach was to leave no stone unturned.
We discussed everything from my lifestyle and sleep habits, to my activity levels to food choices. Everything is logged and tracked by the day to keep you focused on each step of the journey.
The numbers really speak for themselves. 107Kg and 33% body fat in October 2021 down to 83Kg and 10% body fat in July 2022.
But that’s not the entire picture.
I’m a happier and less stressed husband/father. I’ve also improved my self-image and have increased levels of confidence both from the compliments and people’s reactions, but also from proving to myself that I have what it takes to achieve such a drastic transformation.
Whenever I’m asked about Embody, I tell people that as long as they have the motivation and commitment to put in the effort, they should have no doubt that Embody will provide the rest of what’s required.
Joining Embody has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve never felt better in my life."
