“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.”

Bob chose to come to Embody Fitness as he had been struggling to achieve the results he desired in the gym. He joined towards the end of the year and trained with Personal Trainer Tom Ward on our 12 week Muscle & Physique programme – impressively keeping up his training throughout the festive period. Bob went from 9% body fat to 6%, and gained 4kg of lean muscle mass on the 12 week programme.
Bob pushed himself every single session and made a real commitment to the nutrition and his lifestyle. He was always asking how to optimise his results and if there was anything else he should be doing to progress. The hard work and drive show in his impressive results – a massive well done from the team at Embody Fitness.

“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!”

“Following an overindulgent Christmas and Festive Period I came into the New Year not looking or feeling in great shape. So instead of doing the customary annual dry January I decided to make a more committed investment to my health and fitness and looked into a transformation programme with Embody Fitness. I started off with a 4-week Winter Blitz programme then continued onto an 8 week programme, training 3 times per week, with my main goals and objectives of reducing my body fat percentage (to lose the gut), getting back into the routine of training and also developing a more focussed approach to my nutrition, which being honest I’ve always overlooked.
The training sessions were tailored to my individual needs with input from the Embody Sports Therapist and whilst at the start I found them tough, my personal trainer Joey was great at giving me the motivation to succeed and get through them. The strict attention to nutrition, which included a daily tracker to ensure I was sticking to my macros became second nature after a few days of getting used to it. The regular check-ins and re-tests also helped to keep me on track and motivated.
Getting to the end of the programme and seeing the results has been life changing. I succeeded in reducing my body fat from 19% to 11%, I rediscovered my passion for training and am also now a lot more conscious and aware of what I’m eating and drinking. Mission accomplished! I enjoyed the experience so much so that I’ve continued to train with Joey to make even further gains in my strength and physique – and to now get below 10%! Thank you Embody Fitness. Wayne”

“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.”

“Embody Fitness is a superbly staffed and equipped personal training gym offering the best results based training. After over 20 years of messing around in other gyms I decided to go to Embody Fitness to get some proper training and advice. In just 8 weeks Steve, Greg and the rest of the team have taken me from the worst shape in my life to the best. Their sound advice and training on the gym floor was backed up by body composition assessments every 3 weeks and tailoring of nutrition and training in accordance with the results. There is no guesswork here. If you’re serious about getting results from your hard work in the gym I recommend you get yourself down to Embody Fitness.”

James, like many of our clients, had never stepped foot in a gym before but with a dream of looking like one of our transformations in a short period of time.
Being a web designer, James had a sedentary lifestyle and by his own admission, a terrible diet full of junk food. James was able to drop his body from 23.6% to a hugely impressive 7.8% in just 12 weeks.
His trainer Mark, kept him on track throughout with regular monitoring and changes to his programme to ensure James delivered the best results he could dream of. Although he initially dreaded the thought of the tough training sessions, he soon looked forward to each session and has continued to train with Mark and make further strength and fitness gains.

“Like many people I struggled to maintain my fitness during lockdown. I tried home workouts etc but could not achieve the same results as using an actual gym and fitness classes. I knew once lockdown was over I needed something radical to get back into shape and to feel fit and healthy again. I knew I wanted to try out a personal trainer having never tried one before. I did a lot of research and wanted to go for a highly reputable, best-in-class PT facility, hence why I chose Embody.
The initial consultation was great. We went through my current activity levels, fitness goals and took measurements so I had a clear understanding of where I was at, and where I needed to get to to reach my targets. The nutritional aspect was really important given that is half of the journey in itself. I had clear daily calorie and macronutrient targets which kept me on track. The therapy assessment was fine, fortunately I didn’t have any muscular or skeletal imbalances/issues.
My nutritionist Danny was great, friendly, very professional and clearly knows his stuff. I have been training for the last 15 years of my life and the core principles of fitness and nutrition which Danny took me through were in line with what I have learnt over the years, with additional tips. The training program was equally as good, I’ve learned new methods of training, new exercises and have developed the weaker parts of my body to build more well-rounded strength. My PT Joshua was fantastic, very motivating, always had high energy, and consistently offered guidance on ways I could improve my form. He helped me push limits, particularly on days when I would enter the gym feeling tired – I always left feeling refreshed and energised.
To anyone considering a programme at Embody, I would 100% recommend going for it. Even though I have been training for the last fifteen years, I was able to learn a lot in the last 10 weeks, push myself past my limits, and get back to where I wanted to be health and fitness wise. It was exactly what I needed after months of being in lockdown. It has been a breath of fresh air both mentally and physically.”
Lost 9kgs to reach sub 10% body fat
My journey at Embody has been incredibly fulfilling. I’ve always been involved in sports and training, however really dedicating myself to proper training and knowing what to eat and how much to eat has been a real eye opener. Embody really do embody health and wellness and have really shown me that quality trumps quantity. I’ve managed to shed fat, increase muscle and get into the best shape of my life while enjoying the entire process. The trainers are also extremely qualified, knowledgable, and professional which is helpful to know you’re in the right hands.
Lost 10% body fat
From start to finish my experience with Embody was great. The team really know how to push you to your limits whilst keeping the sessions fun and engaging. I felt I have learnt a lot throughout my time here, even my friends are impressed with my new found passion for training! If you are looking for that extra push to get you into the best shape of your life, Embody is the perfect choice.
Lost 7.5% body fat
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.
Lost 17kg body fat
We’re incredibly proud of Richard’s transformation. Starting out at 27% body fat he had a personal goal to get down to 9% – which he smashed in 9 months of training with Natalie and the team at Embody Fitness. He shed an impressive 17kgs of fat in the process and lost 14kgs of body weight.

Whilst I’ve always been in relatively good shape I’ve always found it hard to gain definition in my muscles. After researching a number of body transformation gyms online Embody really stood out, the consultation backed up what I saw online and I am incredibly happy I made the commitment. The training was challenging but rewarding, I can’t believe what I achieved in such a short amount of time.
Gained 4kgs muscle mass
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!
Lost 15% body fat
“Undertaking the 8 Week Rapid Fat Loss programme has given me fantastic results in a short period of time. Not only was I able to lose a significant amount of body fat, but I also gained a significant amount of muscle mass dropping my body fat from at least 10% down to 6%.
Whilst I have trained for 14 years on my own, this is the first time I have used a PT and let me tell you, they will put you through your paces! After every session I had well and truly used up all of my energy. The sessions were tough because I wanted the PTs to push me to my limits. I have never trained as hard as with Embody Fitness and the amazing physique transformation is exactly what I wanted. The guys are also very knowledgeable about nutrition and are truly experts. Thoroughly enjoyed my experience and would highly recommend! Thanks Embody!”

“I’d been staying active over the summer but saw that my results were beginning to plateau. I’ve never been able to push myself that little bit harder nor stay consistent enough, that’s when I came across Embody.
I ended up choosing Embody for a number of reasons. The results on their website looked amazing, as did their testimonials. But it was their approach – which offered nutrition and supplementation, sports therapy and of course the personal training, that made me choose Embody. The all-inclusive approach meant I had no excuses if results didn’t go my way. Additionally, their location in London made it an ideal place to go before walking to work!After I reached out, Embody replied quickly which meant I could get started as soon as possible. The initial consultation made me really excited for the journey ahead. The therapy assessment helped make my personal program and also taught me some interesting information that I didn’t know about myself!
Meeting Danny for the first time got me excited for the journey ahead! I particularly liked that, while a lot of factors were going to be handled by Embody, my results were going to come down to me and how much I was willing to change and push myself – which was true!
I found the training really challenging, but in a good way. While it was clear my fitness was improving, the workouts never really got easier, which was good because I was constantly being pushed to get better and better.
I loved the team approach at Embody. Working out at a gym can often feel quite intimidating, which is why I’d often be reluctant to go. But at Embody there is a real fun atmosphere. All the trainers are making jokes which helps make you feel like you’re part of the team.
The approach of combining the nutrition and supplementation and the personal training as well sports therapy if I ever had any muscle issues meant that I had everything accounted for which lead to me having to worry about less factors.
If I had to choose 2-3 key things that stood out about my journey I would choose;
Passion – as well as pushing me to my limits, I really liked the passion the team at Embody had. Particularly from Craig, if I ever had a question, he would go into great detail, even using studies he’d recently read in his answers, which really showed how passionate he was about the fitness industry and thus made me more interested in it as well!
Real personalised programme – after doing my initial consultation, which included measuring my weight, body fat % and even seeing how flexible I was, the team created a programme just for me. Even afterwards, the programme would change depending on how I reacted to some exercise types.
Friendly – if I didn’t get on with Craig, my trainer, then my motivation for getting up early 3 times a week would have been very low. By being friendly and making jokes (even at my expense) the trainers made me want to work hard not just for myself, but for them as well!
“I feel I have a lot more energy than I did before, especially in the early morning! My posture has also improved, I used to slouch quite a lot, so it’s great that I look a little taller now.
As well as all the physical benefits, I’d say my knowledge of training and nutrition has improved massively. Because Craig and Danny took the time to not just tell me what to do, but explain why, means I have a much better chance of maintaining my fitness.
It’s an amazing feeling to see my before and after images! I originally thought when I began my Embody journey that I was relatively fit, but seeing the before and after photos were staggering!
It’s actually quite emotional – seeing all the hard work that you’ve done to achieve the goals you set out for really is satisfying. My close friends and family couldn’t believe how quickly the change occurred, even people I’m not close with could tell that I had broader shoulders from working out!
If anyone is considering the Embody programme – I understand that it can seem to be somewhat daunting, but once you get into the gym, see the trainers and the culture, those fears will go away. The quicker you decide to join, the quicker you can start your journey. You won’t just get the body you’ve always wanted, but also learn about the fitness industry which can help you maintain it in the long term.”

“After being on holiday in February I had a sudden realisation that my clothes were too tight, I felt very unfit and lethargic. I walk a lot with work so I never went to the gym, I thought walking was enough exercise – clearly for me it wasn’t!! At this point I weighed 103kgs and realised I needed to do something about my diet and exercise. That was when I turned to google and found Embody. The testimonials on their website, and the proximity to where I work inspired me to get in touch.
In my initial consultation we discussed my diet and exercise, I quickly realised that my goal of getting healthier and fitter was realistic and achievable. The 12 week body transformation programme was exactly what I was looking for, and from that point onwards I was 100% committed. I haven’t looked back since!
After signing up I was introduced to my nutritionist, Danny. He helped me understand where I was going wrong with my current diet, and enabled me to implement the changes needed for a healthier lifestyle. We met to discuss my nutrition and monitor my progress throughout my programme, I found him incredibly easy to talk to, helpful and supportive.
After meeting Danny I was introduced to my Personal Trainers, James and Joey. Initially I found the training really hard work, as it had been years since I had done any type of exercise. But through their friendly and welcoming manner, encouragement, motivation and constant pushing me to achieve my best, I’m proud to say it’s paid off. I’ve lost 16kgs and 15.5% body fat and feel I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in, both looks and health-wise.
The highlight for me has been when my friends and family have complimented me on how much weight I have lost, and how much healthier I look. It makes me realise it has all been worth it, and I couldn’t have done it without their guidance, support and belief in me to succeed.
I would recommend Embody as they have helped me to achieve all of my goals and given me the tools to continue with a healthy and balanced lifestyle. I look forward to continuing to work with them on my next stage.”

“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!”
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 w as slowly getting obese. For me the turning point was around Christmas when I went to the darts. I had about ten pints and a hot dog, and on the way home I had six nuggets, two hamburgers and a large fries, and I didn’t think anything of it.”
“I’m no stranger to training – I have half and full marathons under my belt – but like a lot of people, I was scared to lift heavy weights. I’d rather be on the treadmill for an hour.”
“I had also tried numerous diets in the past, “the 5:2 fast, the smoothies” – but none of these had lasting changes. The first three days of the Embody nutrition plan were tough because I couldn’t eat any of the crap I normally have, but after that it was a breeze. For breakfast I’d have chicken or steak or salmon. People pull a face when I say that, but I wouldn’t get hungry for hours – so it works. It doesn’t take long to make either, so I’ve learnt there really is no excuse for not eating healthy.”
“I’ve replaced binges with new habits, for example I love black coffee now. I’ll still have a curry, but with a healthy sauce. I have 95% chocolate for a treat – I don’t need to indulge myself all the time.”
“When I met Chris he said, ‘There’s 168 hours in a week and I’ve got you for three of them, so the rest is up to you’. That really motivated me. Other people can help keep you on the road, but you’ve got to want it too. Everyone’s got it in them. Don’t think of it as an end – think of it as a new way of life.”
Lost 16.3% body fat
“I was tired of seeing other guys with the results that i wanted, knowing that they weren’t working any harder than i was in the gym. So finally something gave after training on my own for 15 years and i visited the experts at Embody. 10 weeks later i’m clearly over the moon – i’m actually spending less time in the gym but i am stronger than ever and my body fat is sub 10% from 23%. The program from Embody actually complimented what i enjoy – lifting weights, little cardio and lots of food, especially proteins from meat and fish.
The whole food program was so structured that i just followed the steps and put about 2 hours per week preparing my food. the sacrifice of cutting out starches and dairy was completely manageable and made a huge difference. I was never really hungry either given all the food that i was eating. I am so much more knowledgeable now about my diet. I know that i won’t ever revert back to old habits.
On the gym side of things, i spent 3 hours per week with my trainer Greg. That’s it! Every 2 weeks Greg switched up the program to shock my muscles into change and growth. this was completely different to the same routine i had been doing for years, and me also likely overworking myself with too much muscle burning cardio. so i got stronger with less work, and my body looks better. Greg was super positive and made the gym one of my favorite things each week to look forward to.
It all sounds simple because the team at Embody makes it simple. If you think that you can’t do it then you’re fooling yourself. You only live once so make the most of it. It is easy.
The buzz of my results has got me continuing at Embody now to keep pushing the results and see where I can get my fitness levels to. Really happy with the team there and I’ve recommended the program to numerous people who are asking me “how the heck did you change your body, you look great”.

“From the first time I entered the gym I knew it was somewhere I could truly recognise my full potential, not only from the amazing equipment they supply but the incredible vibe the place exudes, it ‘s like nowhere else and is somewhere, and something you have to encounter to truly understand and appreciate.
The environment is purely there to create success and that is blatantly obvious when listening to the way the team wax lyrical about their roles within your transformation. Their experience within the industry, in my opinion, is unrivaled and they are all there to help you achieve your goal. In an industry that, from experience, is difficult to trust, Embody delivers on every level…. with spades.
Professionalism ooze’s from everyone you speak to but not in a arrogant way at all, its more reassuring, its somewhere you know you are in safe hands and almost part of the team. I’ve trained in many different places over the years and I can honestly say nowhere even comes close. As for my trainer, there are no words but let me try. He’s became a friend, someone who wanted me to succeed whole heartedly, sometimes more than I did myself.
Someone I didn’t want to let down! I found myself asking “what would Tek do” when I came to a difficult place within the diet. During workouts he would always get that extra 10% out of me when, the same 10% that if training on my own I wouldn’t, and that’s the difference. I can honestly say I enjoyed every single session and found myself looking forward to an hour of Tek banter! No question was ever unanswered, silly or to much trouble he was a wealth of knowledge and his enthusiasm was infectious.
A true personal trainer in the purest form, he practises what he preaches and that, for me, is key. He knew what to expect, when and how to deal with it, when to push me and when we needed to take a second. An ideal role model for anyone thinking of getting in to the field and someone I look up to.
The rest of the team are all fantastic and were always there with helpful advice, a knowing ear or just a laugh and joke when needed. At this point I feel George needs a special mention. He was always there with a smile on his face and a witty quip, Embody wouldn’t be the same place without you. Thank you so much to everyone at Embody, as Arnold would say….I’ll be back!!” – Ben
Lost 13% body fat
“To say Embody Fitness lived up to their reputation would be somewhat of an understatement. Such was my trainer’s infectious enthusiasm, depth of knowledge and passion for getting me to the goals I wanted to achieve, that by the second week I was genuinely more afraid of letting him down than myself – a fear that proved useful when the pub was calling or that cheesecake was eyeballing me from the back of the fridge.
When someone is willing to put so much effort into providing you with a bespoke diet plan and tailored fitness regime, the motivation to stick to it summons itself. After just eight weeks I achieved the sort of results I’d spent the last five years failing miserably to get anywhere near.
You’ll find a range of apparatus and level of service you just don’t get anywhere else. More than just the aesthetic transformation he helped me achieve, I left the course feeling stronger, healthier and an altogether more confident person.”
Achieved cover-model physique

“The nutrition advice was delivered exactly how I needed it: very specific and detailed (no vagueness allowing me to be able to bend the rules) and always quick to respond to my questions. The training was extremely enjoyable all the way through, excellent trainers and the fast progress meant that my motivation stayed high all the way through.
It’s certainly no easy ride, and requires a lot of hard work, and most of all discipline to stick with the nutrition plan. But if you’re ready to commit to it these guys will push and guide you through exceeding your fitness goals as they did for me.”

Transforming Deputy Editor Ben Ince from a podgy, out of shape 18.5% body fat, to a lean, athletic cover model physique in just 8 weeks, for many might have seemed like a slightly audacious task. However, this is par for the course for the team at Embody Fitness.
Following our Rapid Fat Loss training and nutrition protocols to the letter and Ben was sporting his new lean and athletic physique for the pages of Men’s Fitness magazine just 8 weeks later. Whilst the primary objective was to drastically transform his body to look aesthetically pleasing for the cameras, Ben also noticed he felt significantly healthier, fitter and stronger than ever before….

Rob is a busy city professional working in the insurance industry which comes with one of the biggest challenges a lot of our clients face – work drinks and client entertaining on a regular basis. With help from his Embody nutritional expert, Rob was able to stay on track and loose a serious amount of body fat whilst making gains in lean muscle mass.
He heard about Embody Fitness from another client who informed him this was the best place in London for guaranteed results when it comes to Personal Training.
Rob trained with Tekin who pushed him week after week and kept him on track and motivated throughout, even during those tough times that everyone faces. Rob continues to train at Embody due to the constant challenges on the gym floor and the great atmosphere that motivates him to keep coming back.

“I was one of the many people that went to the gym week after week, without seeing the results I wanted. 12 weeks after I started I realised it is possible to achieve amazing results in a short period of time. All it takes is sticking to the plan 100% and giving it your all without deviating from the strict regimen. The nutrition team and my brilliant trainer have taught me a lot.
Not just about training – but also about food, coffee, supplements and how to optimise the diet to get great results. This made me more self-aware about living a healthy lifestyle and not going back as I was before. It’s also proved to be a huge motivation and inspiration to carry on chasing new goals.
This is not just a 12 week transformation but the beginning of a new lifestyle; when training and eating in the best possible way becomes a part of your everyday life.
I am writing this from my holiday in South Beach, Miami. And yes, I am more than happy to take my top off.”

Embody Fitness wanted to put their reputation as the worlds leading body transformation experts to the test. Taking an out of shape, ordinary guy to a cover model physique in just 10 weeks may have seemed like the impossible, but the final result speaks for itself.
Combining cutting edge nutritional science with 15 years personal training experience helped Mark Sansom achieve one the most incredible 10 week transformations ever seen. Not only replacing the beer belly in favor of sculpted cover model abs, Mark added 7 kilos of solid muscle with a perfectly balanced physique whilst feeling stronger and healthier than ever.

“I don’t have the right body shape. My metabolism isn’t very good. I’m sure diet isn’t that important if you exercise. These were the excuses I consistently told myself to help make me feel justified about my body. After what seemed like years of trying different gyms, fitness magazines and crazy fad diets; a heavy Christmas and a change of job finally gave me the kick up the backside to try and see what I could achieve.
“12 of your finest, Matt”. These would be the words that would both haunt me and get me through each session. But it also (cheesily) applies so much to the whole Embody team. Everyone is ridiculously knowledgeable about fitness and food, and it really shows in the results these guys are achieving. The fact that the trainers are doing similar diets and workout types makes you confident that you can achieve the outcome you want.
I could not have asked for a better trainer. In fact to call him a trainer doesn’t really do him justice, more of a life coach. I don’t think I found a topic that he didn’t know something about, but unfortunately for him that resulted in me inundating him with emails for help (which he always obliged to answer).
I followed whatever I was told to do to the letter (I don’t think he fully realized the power he had!) and the speed of the results was enough to make me grateful for his assistance. But more importantly, I saw him as a friend. By the end of my transformation I wanted to achieve great results to make him proud, as well as me, and this really helped me get through.
These 12 weeks have positively changed me, both physically and mentally. I look forward to progress in the future, and would thoroughly recommend Embody to anyone looking to step their training up a notch!”

“I’m like a lot of guys in that I’ve had a pretty hit and miss approach to training over the years. I was pretty serious and committed when I was younger and then through my mid-twenties and thirties its been all ups and downs. Sometimes I’ve had periods working with personal trainers and sometimes I trained on my own but never consistently and always with relatively mixed results. Now in my early forties, and having found myself in a less than presentable state, I decided that I really wanted to commit to training again with the aim of achieving real results.
Having taken a little time to consider my options I decided to sign up to a training programme at Embody Fitness and I could not have made a better decision! The results that I’ve achieved in 12 weeks has been incredible, 20.8% to 5.6% body fat, and well beyond what I’d hoped for.
Embody has created a truly unique training environment which is both professional and inspiring and everyone in the team that I met provided me with real encouragement. My personal trainer was knowledgeable and supportive and put together a really strong programme. He was also very aware of how I felt each session and would always get the best out of me no matter what. It was hard work at times but I always looked forward to the sessions I had each week. The nutritional plan and the regular check-ins and adjustments really helped me to see progress and to stay on track.
If you are someone who wants to take on a challenge and is looking to really transform their physique I do not believe you will find a better place to achieve great results than Embody Fitness!”

“I never believed the images I saw online of the transformations that were taking place at Embody. I have to be perfectly honest and say that I joined Embody at a point of desperation, as my training with my previous trainer was going nowhere. I’d stopped seeing any development and had lost the desire to train altogether. My initial meeting was amazing and I knew straight away I was coming to the right place. No dreams were sold – instead it was clearly explained what I could hope to achieve and I was made to feel at home knowing I was now in the right hands.
It was explained to me that my training was to be completed with a dedicated trainer and my nutrition to be handled by the nutrition team. I have to say that the biggest factor to achieving what I have was largely down to my diet, and the incredible level of expertise and attention I had not received in the past. Everything was simplified and explained down to the last meal. I wasn’t just being told what I could eat, I was being educated as to why, what and when I am eating it.
Now I am able to just look at the macro breakdowns of my meals and know everything I need to about the nutritional values. The meal plans were amazing, as I could pick from so many different things and I suppose it didn’t really feel like I was dieting at all. Don’t get me wrong, cutting out carbs initially was difficult but to achieve success in anything you have to sacrifice. If it was easy, everybody would be able to do it and everybody would have an incredible physique.
My trainer was hand-picked for me, as he was the best trainer to help me achieve my desired results. He had the body I wanted and knew everything we had to do on the gym floor to achieve it. The pace was set by him and quickly adapted to suit my ability. The whole customer service experience was so different to what I had previously received. The only way I can sum it up is to say that everybody actually cared how I was doing in the gym. Greg kept me motivated throughout every single training session, which were always executed perfectly. There were mornings when I was just not into it but he always found a way to keep my motivation levels up. Without him I wouldn’t sit here today with a 6 pack. He continuously challenged me to better myself both inside and outside of gym. I accepted his plank challenge, which we do need to make time for soon!”

Despite working regularly with his personal trainer, Billy consistently failed to make any significant progress with his fat loss efforts. A simple fix of Embody Fitness trainer, putting him through our cutting edge weight training programmes, coupled with expert nutrition plans being monitored and adapted along the way by one of our team of nutritional experts, and the final results speak for themselves.

“After reading about Embody Fitness in City Magazine and seeing the results achieved with their clients I was keen to throw myself into an intensive 8 week programme. The friendly and encouraging atmosphere was a pleasure to be a part of and it really shone through how the entire team where behind me every step of the way. The results I achieved in just 8 weeks have been fantastic, dropping from 18.9% body fat to 11.9% whilst adding a ton of muscle. I feel fitter, stronger, healthier and the lessons I’ve learned with regards to training and nutrition will last a lifetime.”

“Working with the entire Embody team proved to not only be a thoroughly enjoyable experience but also one which tangibly demonstrated that individual commitment combined with their expertise does produce outstanding results in a short period.

“2 years had passed since I was last in good shape, due to illness, caring for my terminally ill father and 2 very busy years at work, the weight had crept back on. I needed to sort things out so looked around the area for a 12 week intense package and decided to take up the embody challenge although due to a trip away and wedding had 10 weeks to achieve my goals.
Embody set me up with someone to look after my nutrition, somebody to look after my training and I had a pre-training assessment with their therapist. I really found the diet easy to follow and stick to, even though there were no cheat meals and no alcohol, didn’t really find myself feeling hungry. I trained with my trainer Tekin 3 days a week and once or twice on my own, Tekin’s sessions were always challenging but extremely enjoyable and he always got the most out of me in every session, even when sometimes was exhausted ( I start work at 2am), and would personally recommend him to anyone that wants to achieve their goals.
I found the gym very well equipped and never overcrowded, and all staff friendly and helpful at all times, would like to thank everyone at gym but special mention to Tekin and Dave who stood in when Tekin was off, and Greg for diet plan. Results really are achievable if you give everything in training sessions and stick to your personal nutrition plan.”

“Training at Embody has given me a renewed sense of accomplishment in life. I’ve tried every programme imaginable in the past and always struggled to maintain any sort of consistency when it came to nutrition and exercise. Thankfully with the guidance of the professional coaches and nutritionists at Embody, I’ve been able to achieve results I thought were unattainable in just 12 weeks. I had the support of a wonderful team that held me accountable and motivated me to push harder than ever before.”

“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.”

“I came across Embody through a friend of mine, he had completed an 8 week transformation at Embody and his results were unbelievable, he suggested I book an appointment to see what I thought, this recommendation has been the best to date!
My goals were to tone and lose fat, I have always been a member of a local gym and trained to a good standard, so I thought!! However, once I committed to the 12 weeks training program with Embody and met my trainer Bridie, I realised the error in my ways. I went from going to the gym 4 times a week lifting weights incorrectly and dangerously to progressing in all areas in a safe and more productive way.
The Staff at Embody are all very supportive from start to finish and Bridie my trainer pushed me to the limit, she kept our sessions intense, exciting and left me looking forward to the next one, if your lucky enough for Bridie to be your trainer please expect to sweat and work like never before, but also have a laugh whilst doing so.
The result I accomplished was so surprising, I was really shocked comparing the before and after photos. I now feel fitter, healthier, younger and more confident and can’t wait to see what new goals I can go onto achieve here at Embody.
I would recommend signing up to Embody immediately!!! I wish I done it years ago.

“I started my fitness journey with Embody last year 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 came to embody when I was a little lost with my fitness and didn’t know how to make more progress. I have always wanted to do a triathlon and all the research online about different training schedules didn’t work because I simply wasn’t strong enough to do a distance like an Iron Man Triathlon.

“19 year old Vishaal joined Embody with the goal of gaining weight and building muscle. During his transformation he gained 10kg in 8 weeks increasing his body weight from 53kg at 4.3% body fat to 63kg at 5.3% body fat.
With hard work and consistency Vishaal was able to reach his goal of building more muscle mass. He also gained great levels of strength, confidence, and nutritional knowledge.”

“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 mould 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.”

“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.”
