Michael is head and shoulders above any other personal trainers. I have been training with Michael for over 5 years. His sessions are excellent as he explain and shows me how to use the apparatus correctly as well as encouraging me to take myself out of my comfort zone. I am 71 years old now and he has helped me maintain a fit mind and body.
Recently I have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s which Michael is very much aware of and tailors my work outs to accommodate my condition.
Michael is a very dedicated, professional and enthusiastic about his work.

I worked with Mike for several months and the results that were achieved were amazing. He helped me implement a practical diet and fitness regime into my daily life and I started seeing brilliant results after the very first week. In the past I have struggled to keep up motivation however Mike was always there when that little boost of motivation was needed. I have lost a significant amount of weight and my overall fitness has improved massively, and I would never have been able to achieve the results I did without his help. Mike struck a perfect balance between professional and friendly, and each session was just as challenging as the last. I would definitely recommend his service.


If you want results then mike is definitely a guy I would highly recommend. He will make you train harder than you would push yourself but also with amazing results, its all down to sheer dedication and hard work but the results are fantastic. Mike has been my personal trainer once a week since january and in that short time, he has pushed me to my limits and I've lost a massive 2 and half stone. My fitness level is much better than it was. He is also very good at nutrition and its not like being on a diet as you eat often and are never hungry its about eating the right things. If I didn't have mike as my personal trainer then the results I want would still be a million miles away.


Mike is all about getting you where you want to be. He has the right tools and knowledge to get you fit in no time. Moreover, he is a very friendly and easygoing person, which makes his workouts fun. I've been working out with Mike for a while, and it always was a great pleasure, as he would push me beyond the limit every single time, which is what you need, if you're looking to get results, without wasting your time. Mike gave me all I needed to help me achieve my goals; training routines and coaching, nutrition advice, and of course, motivation.


I started training with Michael in a bid to lose some fat and tone up. After having a few sessions, I started seeing the results and I felt great. I carried on training with Michael and he had tailor made the work outs to suit my needs and to help me get the results I wanted. I now feel strong physically and mentally too. Everyone now comments on how good I look and that wouldn’t be without the help from Michael and his expertise.


I need to maximise the limited time I have in the gym. I visit the gym fairly often, but get better results from an hour's training with Mike, because he will challenge you to push yourself further than you think you could manage. That extra push makes you ache, but pain means results. A trainer who motivates you is great. I would recommend him over others I have tried.


Mike is a nice lad, been training with him now for about 5 months and lost nearly 2 stone. Training very hard and he give me good motivation and advice.


I've never been so fit and healthy as a result of being trained and receiving nutritional advice from Michael Standing. Not only have I seen massive improvements to my fitness levels, my confidence and self esteem both inside and outside of the gym have improved due to Mike's encouragement and motivation.


I've been working with Mike for 4 months and have seen amazing results in that time. I have never felt stronger or healthier. Mike is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. His easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! He also places a high value on correct form with each exercise. He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results. I have incredible energy, my balance and flexibility have improved immensely and I've got great new muscles. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Mike will lead you every step of the way.

Thank you Mike, you are the best!
