“My son has a muscle weakness on one side of his body and a balance problem. Cris has designed his exercise program to target these areas of weakness, and to improve his co-ordination and balance. My son enjoys his one-to-one sessions and thanks to Cris’ help and encouragement has improved and continues to improve in all these areas.” — Mrs V. Farr
“I was most impressed by Cris’ training techniques, which were far better than those of previous trainers I have used. He put together an excellent and innovative training program, concentrating on core strength, balance and leg strength. This meant for the first time ever, I arrived at the resort at the beginning of the season with a high level of fitness and body strength.” — Mr A. Price (Alpine Ski Instructor)
“I have enormously enjoyed training with Cris and have derived a huge amount of benefit from it, both losing a substantial amount of weight and gaining a greater level of strength and general fitness than ever before.” — Mr R. Graham
“I wanted to let you know I have passed my Police fitness test. I’d like to thank you very much for all your help, support and encouragement over the past 2 months. I don’t think I could’ve passed it without you.” — Ms J. Norris
“In the short space of time I have been attending training sessions with Cristian my body-shape has dramatically changed, my confidence has grown and my whole lifestyle is slowly but surely changing, and it’s all thanks to him.” — Mrs J. Cosford
“Cris taught me how to maximise my workouts and get the best and quickest results. I am also less injury-prone now.” — Mrs S. Rawle
“Cris is an excellent trainer; good at designing programmes to match the trainee’s goals and good at updating and adjusting the programmes to avoid boredom or getting in a rut. He helped me achieve more in a year at the gym than I had done in the previous 5.” — Mr A. Hamilton
“I first went to Cris after a dose of Radiotherapy on my neck and shoulder. Cris managed to put together a programme which not only strengthened my shoulder but improved my overall posture and core. Cris also prepared me for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, which I eventually managed to conquer. I can say that Cris is the main reason why I now feel stronger, fitter and healthy again.” — Mr S. Jones
“The first thing Cris will do after all the normal form filling is agree a target for you. Mine was simple; after having my knee crushed by two cars, all I wanted to do was walk without a limp. Now after only 3 weeks my limp is 90% better. I was told by my doctor if I was 18 I would recover 100%, if I was 80 it be 10%, as I’m a unfit 46 year old who already has beaten the doctor’s target I would recommended anyone to see Cris. Now, I’ve just got to set a new target for myself! Maybe becoming a fit 47 year old!” — Mr M. Whittingham
“When I started training with Cris I had a long standing shoulder injury which had given me a lot of trouble over the years. After 6 months of training with Cris and adhering to his workout program which was specifically tailored to my needs, my shoulder is now 100% better. For the last 18 months I have continued to workout with Cris and am glad to say I am in the best shape of my life. In short I would recommend Cris no matter what your fitness goals or needs are.” — Mr D. Hedges
“The diet and exercise programme Cris put together for me enabled me to lose 4 and a half stones. Cris has helped me tone up my body and build up my strength and fitness. This is the best I have felt in years. I have had a weight problem for 20 years now and since I met Cris he has supported me in person as well as via email when I’ve needed it! He has been able to advise me on my nutrition as well as exercise. I cannot recommend him highly enough!” — Mrs N. Chauhan
“Cris is knowledgeable trainer who uses a holistic approach to fitness. No psycho-babble just common sense coupled with an open outlook of what works for the individual is best. I am a very fit and athletic person with over 35 years of sporting activity since leaving school. He has raised my fitness to a new level. I have seen many coaches and he is one of the best. He keeps up on new developments, and uses them with more traditional techniques to suit the individual. Speaking as a sports coach myself, I know that whatever your fitness level, Cris can offer you something you may not have found elsewhere.” — Mr G. Heard
“As a very overweight, nearly-approaching-fifty, lady who has never exercised in her life, I was probably not the most likely of clients to land on Cris’ doorstep. However, I have been a regular client for nearly four years which is a testament to his professionalism, positive approach and friendliness. (And, YES! at the beginning I wanted to give up so VERY much, but he helped me through those bad patches). He never fails to encourage, motivate and make you feel good about your efforts. Cris takes a holistic approach to your health, fitness and emotional well-being, so he is far more than a ‘personal trainer’. He is very knowledgeable and continues to learn, upskill and drive his understanding to new heights. If you are serious about getting fit and looking good, then Cris is the person you need! He has made an enormous difference to how I look and how I feel about myself – thank you Cris.” — Mrs D. Swallow
“Unfit and overweight, I reluctantly started to train with Cris. Being in my fifties, having done no exercise for years, and having various health and skeletal issues, combined with a natural reluctance to put myself through any physical exertion I imagine I was not a model client! However, Cris brings to his job a very positive approach, he is professional, purposeful inspiring and always very encouraging. I cannot believe how he has motivated me, and what I have already achieved. Already I feel more mobile and my posture has improved. My health issues are still with me but Cris is addressing these as well. With his holistic approach to treating the whole person and his determination to help each of his clients become the person they ought to be I have no doubt that together we will persevere and I will improve. Professional, well qualified, knowledgeable and always researching to maintain and improve his knowledge Cris is a Holistic Fitness Coach in whom you can trust and have complete confidence.” — Mrs C. Murrell
“Year after year, I promise myself that I’m going to improve my posture, get fit, toned and that perfect body I’ve been promising myself for so long. I was dubious in the beginning due to past failed attempts but Cris has a way of giving you that extra motivation to reach your goals and he pushes you to reach them. Since joining Cris I have also now for the first time got a gym membership that I use frequently. I’ve changed my lifestyle and my eating habits and I’ve never felt more alive.” — Ms Y. Allen
“I am a mum of four, and training with Cris has produced dramatic results, not only in my body and fitness levels but my confidence too! Being a mum of four it is hard to find the time, but Cris is very flexible in accommodating time for me. Cris is very knowledgeable in his chosen field of work and practices what he preaches. I have already recommended Cris to close friends in need of help and would recommend him to anyone else.” — Mrs C. Heron
“I have been a member of a few gyms in my time and have made use of several personal fitness instructors. Cris is by far and away the most knowledgeable and motivational instructor/trainer that I have come across. He always seems to be able to pin point the areas where I need to improve upon both physically and nutritionally. He has continuously been able to improve my performance and, as a result, I now have much more lean muscle and less bodyfat. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking improve their health and appearance.” — Mr R. Manjouneh
“Despite a demanding City job and accompanying lifestyle, Cris devised numerous and interesting programmes for strength, fitness, flexibility and nutrition which has resulted in me losing over two stones and being stronger and fitter than ever before. Cris takes a holistic approach to your aims and there is little this guy doesn’t know. With his dedicated approach clients of all ages and abilities can achieve their goals, be it weight loss or general strength and fitness, in a private comfortable environment.” — Mr M. Clifford
“Cris offers an excellent service and gives support and is motivational. He assessed my flexibility, strength and posture and compiled a plan specific to my abilities with an aim to improve my strength, power and flexibility. I would thoroughly recommend Cris if you want a quality and tailored approach to achieving your goals.” — Mr M. Evans
“I have been going to Cris for over a year. Mid forties and unfit I decided I needed to take control get fitter. With Cris’ choice of exercise I am in much better shape and am very happy with the results so far. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a knowledgeable and understanding trainer.” — Mr D. Hurst
“I was looking for a knowledgeable, experienced professional and that is what I have found in Cris. His holistic approach has helped me to work harder than I ever knew I could, and realise and focus on what I want to achieve. I struggle with motivation sometimes and what I like best about Cris is his flexibility. He can adapt a workout instantly to suit my needs and keeps me motivated by setting goals and challenges.” — Ms H. Blanchard
“Cris has a vast depth of knowledge and is passionate about what he does. He takes the utmost care to ensure that his clients are looked after in a holistic manner, enabling them to reach their goals. Although I’m a qualified personal trainer myself, I hired Cris to help me with my training. The first time I worked with Cris he enabled me to gain a great amount of lean muscle. The second time he helped me using his corrective exercise skills to assist in my recovery from a car crash.” — Mr J. Cusick, Personal Trainer & IKFF Certified Kettlebell Instructor
“Cris has been brillant. I first went to Cris because I ruptured my stomach muscle after running. My object was to work on my core strength and get back to running asap. Not only am I back to running better than ever before but have developed strength I didn’t know existed. My whole body shape has changed. I am absolutely delighted with the results! Cris is professional, immensely knowledgeable and dedicated to helping you achieve your goal whatever that is. Cris has been great I could not recommend him enough. Thank you Cris for your motivation, support and advice.” — Mrs H. Goody
“It is hard to praise Cris enough. It’s very simple, if you do what he says, it works. I came to Cris because I needed a routine that fitted into my busy life. I wanted to be stronger and a better shape. Within 6 months I was in the best shape I’ve ever been. It’s changed my life in many ways. I’m more confident, healthier and happier. But it’s the little things that mean the most. Shopping feels lighter, carrying kids to bed is a doddle and the wife seems happy. The great thing about Cris is he’s not pushy or judgmental. He lays it in front of you and says: “Do what I say, put the work in and your body will change, it’s up to you.” And you only have to train with him once to know he practices what he preaches.” — Mr T. O’Callaghan
“Before meeting Cris, I had started to attend a gym and some spin classes. I knew I wanted to try something new and possibly build my strength and use some equipment I wouldn’t have tried at the gym. Before our first meeting, I was a little nervous. I needn’t have worried as Cris was welcoming and professional. He took plenty of time to get to know us and help establish goals.
During our sessions, I always felt challenged and Cris’ manner meant I felt supported without being pressurised to attempt things which initially I thought were beyond me. This allowed me to grow in confidence and strength which in turn inspired me to want even more from the sessions.
My time training within Cris allowed me to reach my goals and motivated me to continue working in other exercise activities too. I would highly recommend Cris for his professional and engaging manner and ability to really understand a person’s motivations and needs, which makes for engaging and productive sessions.” — Ms R. Roberts
“If you are already thinking about finding a new healthier, fitter you, look no further than Cris! He offers so much more than a simple PT service. Cris will take the time to help you understand your goals before then coaching you toward them. He ensures that he looks after the mind as well as the body and that will open so many doors for you.
For those who are intimidated by the idea of a crowded gym and being PT’d to exhaustion then this is the perfect atmosphere to find your own levels at your own time. Even if you have tried and failed in the past, Cris will lead rather than push you to exceed your expectations in yourself. You couldn’t meet a nicer person and that is very much part of his USP. Give Cris a try. You will not regret it!” — Mr P. Napthine
“Cris is professional, knowledgeable and passionate about health & fitness. His coaching is completely bespoke and adapted to each person’s needs and ability. Cris helped me win a key race by creating and guiding me through a training routine specific to developing me as a runner. Cris ensured I was challenged whilst offering me a safe progression. I can highly recommend his services for anyone looking to improve their fitness and wellbeing, regardless of level.” — Ms E. Barnes (Marathon De Sable Winner 2015 & 2017)
“I wish to personally thank and recommend Cris for his encouragement and support during my one-to-one training sessions. I found myself becoming fitter and stronger and am now able to train at home with exercises suited to a home environment, provided by Cris. His quiet encouragement and positivity during training in the studio was invaluable and very uplifting. I would not hesitate to recommend him” — Ms Heather Banks
“Having trained with Cris for over a year, I can highly recommend him. He took the time to get to know us and understand our goals and needs and made the sessions engaging and challenging.” — Ms R. Roberts
“My husband and I have been training with Cris for a few years now. His studio is perfect and he provides dedicated, effective, knowledgeable (without being patronising!) and non-judgmental coaching!” — Mrs J. Buckle
“I’ve been working with Cris since 2018. I feel so much stronger than when I started. My weekly sessions have become key ‘me time’ during the week and I leave feeling recharged and ready for another week. I’ve also noticed my posture has improved too. Cris is extremely knowledgeable and personal-able and really embodies his philosophy. I would highly recommend him!” — Mr B. Saxon (Yoga Teacher)
“My husband and I have trained with Cris for a few years now. I cannot recommend him enough. He has an amazing way of pushing you without you realising it. The results we have got were exactly as we had asked for. We needed to tone up whilst getting advice on eating sensibly. I cannot thank Cris enough for training us.” — Mrs B. Wright
“I have suffered with severe anxiety, depression, lack of self worth and confidence issues from an extremely young age. With each passing year, my conditions worsened. By the time a friend introduced me to Cris, I had visited my lowest ebb, and the fear of returning to that place was causing debilitating fear, resulting in extreme panic attacks and daily medications.
From our first session, I felt at ease with Cris. His non-judgemental, empathetic and positive approach made me feel comfortable, hopeful and inspired to reach my goals.
For me personally, although I allow my weight and size to have a huge impact on my life, and therefore required the physical training sessions, it was Cris’ life and mind coaching that helped me through some very challenging times.
During our coaching sessions, Cris and I discussed many topics, including some very private and personal life events. Cris genuinely listened, he did not judge, he asked questions, and he helped me to see other perspectives and alternatives, and to find acceptance and closure.
I thank and credit Cris for all of his support and professional knowledge and experience, in helping me to reach a place that I can maintain. I still have a long road ahead of me, but Cris has helped me to gain the confidence to keep walking.
I very much look forward to continuing my progress with Cris and I would recommend his services to anyone who feels they have an area within their lives that could benefit from enhancement.” — Mrs E. Gaskin
“Before I started working with Cris I was excessively overweight; depressed as a result, lacking the confidence to join a gym and was scared to start exercising having not done so for years.
My only concern was that I had “one to one” training in a private setting; I did not want to exercise in a crowded gym. I was embarrassed enough about my appearance/state of health and knew my fitness was at an all time low.
Excellent progression has taken place over the years.
This has been founded upon support from Day 1; gentle suggestions and persuasions of health benefits that I could implement to assist my ultimate goals; quality referrals to similar minded professionals to address certain issues that were highlighted through the training development programme that we have followed.
Now – my life style and fitness levels have changed dramatically and very positively. I am fit, well and have a blood pressure that befits a man 20-30 years younger (according to my GP).
I have considerably more confidence in myself and my appearance (whilst there is still work to do); I have become far more focussed and relaxed at work and am generally less agitated and stressed thanks to the benefits of weekly training.
The best result has been the impetus to continue to strive for development.
There was never a goal that ultimately saw me intending to say thank you and leave training; as each year has passed we have focussed upon a target and sought to deliver it.
This year, for instance, has been focussed upon delivering far greater cardio based fitness than I have ever possessed – it simply would not have been possible to do this before.
What Cris brings to the party is total support and understanding, within an environment where his extensive experience and medical knowledge allows him to gently coax out the maximum possible from me without ever having “broken me” or leave me feeling like I don’t want to come to the gym.
My overriding comment is that there are many professionals whose career turns them into a couch potato.
Excessive drinking and eating, no exercise and then a sudden remembrance of the importance of not destroying your health in pursuit of “career development”.
You realise that “something has to be done”.
Then the panic sets in, together with equal measures of self-doubt and embarrassment.
I believe many people want to address this, like I did, and have the means to pay for the kind of service that Cris offers, though it’s coupled with a fear of starting the process, which ultimately holds back or puts off completely. Try not to be….
Cris can help you, as he has me, if you choose to let him.” — Mr G. Raven
“About 5 years ago I was in Spain on a business trip with my close friend Andy (who has also been a client of Cris’ for a number of years).
At the time I was overweight, drinking too much, on an asthma steroid pump daily plus a very high dose of blood pressure tablets; a real recipe for success!!
Whilst in Spain, Andy and I were out walking one day. We went up a hill, and Andy could see that I was breathing very heavily and said “You really need to do something about this”.
On our return to the UK he arranged for me to pop in and see Cris for a chat/consultation.
Cris told me he could help me and I began training with him.
It was obviously slow-going at first and we discussed my drinking and eating habits, which were clearly not great.
The first thing that I decided to change was my diet. It was not easy, but I decided to focus on eating plenty of meat, veg and some fruit, whilst cutting out grains and some root veg.
Along with the training I really started to lose weight and strip fat, whilst my breathing and training sessions drastically improved too.
On the 15th November 2014 (I will always remember the date), I went round to see my parents.
At some point my Dad pulled me to one side and said “If you don’t stop drinking I will be burying you”; it really touched a nerve.
I went home and tipped all my drink down the sink and went on a water only regime.
This continued and along with Cris’ really progressive training schedule the following year my doctor removed my blood pressure tablets and steroid pump; this was something that I thought would not be in any way possible 18 months prior.
Since that point I have been training four times a week (once with Cris and 3 times on my own), always taking Cris’ advice on the best programmes for me and also taking on board his lifestyle recommendations.
As a result I am now training to a very high and satisfying level, reaching goals that I could have only dreamed of achieving.
This is all because of Cris’ direct help and influence.
Cris, please take this as a massive thank you from me, my family and friends.” — Mr T. Robinson
“Cris is super knowledgeable and passionate about his work. His experience and qualifications are huge. You would be hard pushed to find someone to match his expertise. He walks the walk and talks the talk. If you’re serious as a beginner or as an experienced athlete, Cris will help you set your goals and achieve them. On the way you’ll learn so much – about nutrition and form as well as recovery from injury from a man who understands human nature, physiology and motivation and who will support you to be the best that you can be.” — Ms H. Carmichael
