November 2015 I was struggling with weight/loss of energy and generally feeling unfit. I had just moved to Finchley, busy job, three teenagers and seemed to be always eating. 8 PT sessions later and I have lost 1.5 inches on my waist and importantly regained my energy. Ismael has pushed me really hard but I needed it!! It’s a long journey that I have just started but I can see immediate results and I know if I stick with his programme, transformation is on the way. Not only does he make me work hard I now think more about what I eat!! (plus cut down on the wine!!) Thank you Ismael and yours is one of the best programmes I have joined. The extra energy is very welcome and every so often I get one of the family to come to the class. The PT session and the classes are a great combination …I felt too old and too overweight but the programme is carefully tailored to suit all ages and levels of fitness ..and there is no turning back.

Hi, my name is Nickie and I train with Ismael at work.
A year ago we began kickboxing on Mondays and weight training on Thursdays, at that time I weighed in at over 18st 10lb.
Although I lost some weight and my fitness levels had increased, in October I wanted to see further results with regards to weight loss and started dieting in conjunction with the exercise. I’ve now lost 73lb weighing in yesterday at 13st 7lb.
Although I have another 28lb I want to lose this is a very proud moment for me as this is the lightest I’ve been in 8 years and I would like to take the opportunity to thank Ismael for his support and encouragement, I know I’m hard work sometimes as I don’t believe in myself but I’m getting there and couldn’t have done it without you so thank you very much.

Work in progress

I have recently enrolled with Ismael and it has proven to be a great decision. The sessions on Monday sets me up for the week. It's not easy and makes me dig deep within what I'm capable of and more. I have never been able to achieve these levels by myself and have to thank Ismael for not only being an excellent trainer but pushing me to get the best out of myself
