Ryan Farber has been my personal trainer since December 2017 and I am very pleased with progress. With Ryan’s guidance on the best ways to gain strength I have made more progress more quickly than I ever have since I first started attending a gym regularly in 1983. In 6 months there have been significant increases in weights and endurance and understanding of the physical self. My coordination and balance have improved, and I have less general aches. I am age 72 but feel I have now got back to where I was 20 years ago in terms of fitness and optimism. Ryan’s attention to details of diet has helped with my resolve to reverse my past recent weight gains with age and has helped me reduce alcohol consumption, having someone to raise and discuss and monitor these issues is an important part of motivation and discipline. I am now being helped with therapy by two of Ryan’s staff to mitigate the effects of an old (30 years ago) neglected skiing shoulder injury. This sort of help can be incorporated within the regular sessions and so avoids a special arrangement with another organisation and this facility makes coordination of advice much simpler. I certainly recommend Ryan’s approach which is both very encouraging and careful.

"I sought a Personal Trainer and found Ryan Farber. Ryan consistently advised me that 'you can’t beat the system' and '80% of what we need to work on is nutrition.  When I finally started to follow his daily meal plans, nutritional advice and attend his training sessions, the weight began to fall off. I lost 21 kilos in three and a half months."  Dimitri Raftopolous, May 2018

"I've been training with Ryan for over 3 months, and it's honestly the best workout experience I've ever had. In such a short space of time, I'm much fitter, stronger and faster than ever before, and this is down to Ryan's disciplined but friendly approach. Since Ryan uses a variety of exercises in the sessions I'm never bored, and always challenged to push myself a little more each time! He also makes sure that I'm using the correct form, which has meant no injuries and better results! Ryan also takes a personal interest in his clients, and I can see that he is genuinely excited when I have made progress - that for me is going above and beyond! I'm really glad to have the opportunity to train with Ryan, and just want to say a BIG thank you for his support!"  Oli Joba, Oct 2017
