Had a great session with Artan today! He was so encouraging and friendly and I can't wait to train with him again. I would highly recommend him as a trainer!

I’ve been training with Artan from the spring of this year and have noticed a great improvement in my fitness and I am delighted that I have lost inches from my hips and waist. Artan is very professional and tailors each session to the individual. I would not hesitate to reccomend him .

Artan has knocked 16 years off my metabolic age. I feel younger and fitter, have more energy and sleep more soundly. I would not have got to this stage without his support, encouragement, wisdom and good humour.
I’ve been training with Artan for four years now and he’s the only trainer in thirty years who’s been able to keep me motivated - he’s always so encouraging and funny and keeps the training varied, working with whatever my goals are - he’s helped me to run my first 5k, helped me to lose weight and generally keeps me healthy. I’d recommend him to anyone because he’s so flexible and positive.
I am in my early 70s and have been training weekly with Artan for over two years. I appreciate the fact that he is always punctual, is attentive to what I want to achieve and ups the content of training activities accordingly. He is always very positive, friendly and encouraging. My fitness, strength, stamina and suppleness have all improved since training with him. I am pleased to receommend him without reservation. Five stars! David
It's been almost 8 years of training with Artan and he's helped me get and stay strong ...last year my fitness age was half my chronological age... he is the gentle but firm conscience, and the encouragement, that keep me focused even in between sessions.
Artan is helpful and professional. He helps you to achieve you goals in a friendly and supportive way. Highly recommended.
I've been training with Artan for 10 sessions, the goal was weight loss, I've managed to drop from 95 kg to below 80 kg. Artan made sure I kept motivated both during the sessions with him and outside - while training on my own or when struggling with my diet. He managed to tailor the workout program so that I started enjoying going to gym and made progress. I would recommend training with Artan to everyone!

I have been training with Artan for a few months now and the experience has been excellent. Always on time and professional, Artan is also a great company and makes the effort feel less so. Highly recommended!
Exercise should be fun and that's what personal training with Artan is. As well as increasing strength, stamina and flexibility sessions with Artan lift the mood and give you a sense of wellbeing. I've trained with him for over 10 years and wouldn't have anyone else.
I've been training with Artan for 9 months and can feel a real difference in my general fitness and flexibility. Sessions are fun and routines are personalised to my fitness goals and Artan offer great encouragement and support. Highly recommended.
I have been training with Artan for almost 2 years now and look forward to every session. He is so easy to get on with and seems to know when to push you further during a session and when to go easy if you're not on your best form. He is fun and relaxed, enthusiatic with a smile, and adapts and varies the sessions to suit your needs. I am so much stonger, fitter, slimmer and happier since starting workouts with him. I'd thoroughly recommend him to anyone!!
I have been training with Artan twice a week for 5 weeks. He has really help me figure out what I need to do to achieve my goals and has helped push me to set better targets. He has equipped me with what I need to continue my training on my own. Thank you Artan!

“Thank you for a great PT session today, Artan! Somehow, you always manage to be cheerful at 8am – and it needs some skill getting me to do sit-ups with a smile!” Kym

I started seeing Artan when I was training for the London Marathon 2011. He was a huge reason why I was able to complete it with no injury and in a good time. He is a great personal trainer and makes what could be 1 hour of hell real fun! I would recommend him in a second.” Emily

 “I am going out to buy a new bikini after losing 11cm from my waist … thanks to Artan and to myself for being de-termined.” Arona

“I am no longer in the overweight category. I have also lost 6cm from both my waist and hips. Thanks for your help Artan. I’m looking forward to losing more in the New Year! Merry Christmas!” Leela
