“ If my health wasn’t at risk I may not have invested in Personal Training. While I was happy to spend money on a good haircut, a bottle of wine or an evening out, a Personal Trainer had always seemed outrageously self-indulgent. Surely you have to be worth as much as Madonna or Gwyneth Paltrow to afford a one-on-one workout? This is what I thought until I found myself enviously eyeing a work college’s figure at our Christmas Party last year. “It’s my personal trainer”, she whispered and passed on the details for Manjit, a 40 (plus) year-old fitness instructor from Swindon who looked in his late twenties. Although I’m a sofa slacker by nature, I did join a gym for the New Year New You – along with an estimated 500 other well-meaning people. By April Fool’s day a third of us had stopped going altogether. Yes, unfortunately, I was one of them. With this history of failed health kicks behind me, I took the plunge and called Manjit’s number. The first hour-long training session can be daunting to the uninitiated – just watching people in the gym doing squats and lunges was terrifying! Manjit and Jazmin have their own private studio, so no one was their staring or judging which was great for me! – And I had to be taught how from scratch. It was a revelation. Almost a year on you can see from my pictures I am fitter, my posture is much better and a dress size or two smaller, actually 4 dress sizes smaller! I run around with my nieces and nephews too, they love it!
Crucially, I am still exercising! My confidence is sky high; I even show gym members at my new gym how to exercise! I see Manjit or Jazmin about once every two months, which keeps me motivated and learning new things! It has all proved far more worthwhile than my lapsed gym membership which cost hundreds of pounds a year without shedding any fat and knowing what to do!
Manjit And Jazmin train clients in Central Swindon putting fitness freaks and sloths through their paces for about £40 an hour. Admittedly, it’s not a small cost but from what I read in the context of the £37 million Britons waste each year on unused gym memberships, exercise and slimming classes it doesn’t seem so bad. I was one of them. I am always recommending new clients to Manjit and Jazmin, it’s the best thing that I’ve invested in, and I believe it has prolonged my life. “
