I'm a committed gym-dodger but training with Sarah never felt like a chore - she kept me motivated throughout with inspiring slogans ("Man Up", "Grow a Pair") and taught me a huge amount about what works and what doesn't.
Dave is an excellent personal trainer, one of the best I’ve encountered. Spends a lot of his own time researching and finding out what is the best protocol for you and not just an out of the box tick list. I saw some impressive results over the year I trained with him. I feel comfortable and confident that what he taught me will allow me to train on my own with the same result. I would highly recommend and am looking forward to working with him again.
Really fantastic. I’ll always keep training with Dave, as he’s flexible and understanding enough to fit a plan around you – rather than whatever crazy fitness trend happens to be doing the rounds at that very moment. With a great atmosphere which blends a perfect balance between friendliness and encouragement, you’d be silly not to work with him!
A revelation… I’ve tried regular gyms in the past. I just faffed about, wasted time & money, lost interest and dropped out. Then I joined The Foundry… I was made to feel welcome from the moment I walked though the door (Helen), I was properly assessed by a pro (Tommo) before starting training and I was assigned a great and very experienced trainer (Graeme) who has perfectly tailored my workouts and diet to my body, abilities, goals and available time. The first couple of weeks were really tough but after only 2 months/16 sessions I’m already noticing the difference – physically and mentally. I can strongly recommend The Foundry and my personal trainer, Graeme, in particular!
I have been working with The Foundry for the past month in preparation for a move abroad, in the hope of receiving a new professional contract.
The intensive, yet sensible training program has allowed me to quickly and efficiently correct all the minor discrepancies that were initially found in my assessment in order to be able to move onto my Strength & Conditioning work.
On the Health, Strength, Fitness, Speed & Agility side of things the trainers have put me through my paces via tough yet enjoyable exercises both challenging me on a physical and mental level in which I will need to be able to perform under highly demanding training schedules. Dave Thomas, through his experience, encouragement and intellectual insight has in just four weeks helped me become, and feel, much stronger and more powerful, which not only show in my physique but also in the statistics with me being able to lift more weight week after week.
A HUGE thanks to Team Foundry for all your help & I look forward to working with you in my professional future.
The service the guys at The Foundry is outstanding. They go out of their way to make sure that not only do you get personalised training sessions but also the relevant nutritional and technique support you need to be make the most of your time. They help keep you focussed, make the most of your time and ensure you get the results you want in double quick time.
I approached Dave for a summer of personal training primarily because of his rugby knowledge as I wanted to be in the best shape possible for the start of the new season. I wanted a personal trainer in Central London who understood the game, and was experienced in the kind of training methods needed for my playing position. Dave did not disappoint. After a series of assessments, I embarked on a programme that targeted a number of related areas – strength, speed, power, flexibility, stamina, etc. The training was never dull, comprising gym work, track sprints, and plenty of circuits. The results have been fantastic, and fully justified the personal and financial commitment needed for a 16-week programme.
Just want to say again, thanks for everything Dave it’s been a pleasure to train with you. I couldn’t have done it without your incredible support and knowledge. I’ve lose a huge amount of body fat and weight and I’ve never been this strong. This has enabled me to move up a team with my rugby club after one year of playing the game.
I was looking for a personal training centre that would offer a ‘bespoke’ service and focus on my needs rather than work with a PT in a big chain gym. Low and behold, Dave offered exactly what I was looking for. I’ve seen great results since I started training. Dave is friendly, professional and most importantly, very knowledgeable. I really am indebted to you Dave, and at the same time proud that I’ve stuck so rigidly to the program and healthy diet. Highly recommended!
I am a very active person but for a while I had a feeling that something was not right in terms of my posture and diet, which was having a negative impact on my training. I feel so much better now and my friends and family have all commented on the positive change in me. Last week I had the most amazing run of my life so thanks to Dave I have finally discovered what the fuss about exercise is all about!
I didn’t really know what to expect as I had never used a Personal Trainer before, but was spending time and money at the gym and not seeing results.The first few weeks were very tough – lots of soreness and adjusting to a new diet – but I couldn’t believe how quickly I saw results in body shape and fitness. At my age, I can’t believe I feel strong, leaner and more toned than I ever have and how much I’ve become addicted to the diet and training. The training is varied, intense and you always feel like you’ve gotten the most out of a session. I’m a major fan!
I have consistently surprised myself with my progress. I’m the fittest I’ve ever been, my confidence has improved and, best of all, I feel like I’m finally in control of my health and fitness goals! You have literally changed my life for the better.
A huge THANK YOU!
For me it was evident from the moment we started that this form of personalized training shows better results, is more motivating and provides higher return for money than any alternatives. My posture has improved dramatically, I have gained weight while reducing body fat at the same time and I feel much more energetic and fit. While I have achieved my initial set of goals, I will continue to work with Dave focusing on sports specific training to improve my surfing and squash.
