I have been a member of Fashionable Fitness for nearly 3 years now and only have good words to say about the club.
During that time I have been supported and coached by the great staff there. Every time I train I am greeted with a smile and someone to give me help and advice.
I usually prefer the structured sessions and regularly attend BodyWorx, RBT and Kettlebell with Ricky, Rob and Ben giving advice along the way. In the classes there is usually a great atmosphere with members supporting each other.
I did a course of PT sessions with Ricky which in addition to giving me technique advice also prepared me for marathon and triathlon competitions. We have a team entered in this year’s Yorkshire Warrior so bring it on!!
The return to my fitness journey began on the 16th of October 2014 when I finally plucked up the courage to ring the gym and make an appointment to discuss membership. I was given an appointment and told to come, have a chat, take a look around and see where things went from there.
On arrival at my appointment with Rob, he explained what the club was all about without the use of too much industry jargon and it really made sense. After the initial consultation Rob put together a programme to ease me back into training, as it had been a while and, to be fair, sporadic at best. The programme was broken down over three cards with reviews scheduled at various points to check on my progress. This was a bit of a surprise to be honest as other gyms I have trained at in the past you have to really push to get a work out card never mind a review, normally its a case of “here’s the gym get on with it”.
The fact that the team at Fashionable go the extra mile with advice, structured programmes based around your individual goals and reviews to check your progress is what has made me feel even more comfortable with choosing Fashionable Fitness as the gym I want to be a member of.
Here we are now over 3 years down the road and the results of Robs advice, tailored programmes and the support of the team at Fashionable Fitness have paid off. I have seen gains in all areas of my training, so much so that I have a new passion for power lifting which I plan to compete in later this year. Also my waist circumference has reduced immensely, my overall fitness and physique has improved massively and my body fat percentage has dropped considerably as well. Keep up the great work Fashionable you make training an absolute pleasure even if it hurts like hell some times, couldn’t have got this far without your help and encouragement!
I Joined the Gym back in February 2009, my main goal at the time was weight loss, I took part in a lot of spinning then moved onto weights with help from Rob. I really started to enjoy the strength training over the years and decided to try competing in powerlifting.
I competed with Ricky and Gaz in our first competition, and caught the bug. I have also taken up Olympic weightlifting and now compete in both Powerlifting and Weightlifting. I competed in British Powerlifting Championship this year and the European Masters in Weightlifting in Sweden.
Since taking up Powerlifting and Weightlifting I have dropped three weight categories, and I feel stronger and leaner for it. My plan for the next year is to qualify and compete in the English & British Championships and the World Masters in Barcelona.
Thanks to all the staff at Fashionable Fitness, they have supported me throughout my journey, and go the extra mile from help with spotting in the gym to a cup of tea at Reception.
Fashionable fitness is by far the best gym in scarborough. I’ve been a member for 2 years and it has completely changed the way I think about fitness. I joined when I was really unhappy with the way I looked and in July 2017, after struggling to see results I started personal training with Rob. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I am now achieving consistent results. I’ve lost over a stone in 12 weeks and improving my strength week on week. Rob has changed the way I think about food and I couldn’t ask for a better personal trainer. All of the instructors are lovely and make a real effort to get to know you. I can’t recommend fashionable fitness enough!
Started at fashionable fitness 5 years ago as a skinny guy looking to gain weight and advice to build my confidence. I felt welcomed by the team and made me feel part of the ‘family’. I then gained 2 stone in muscle and learnt so much from the likes of Ricky and other instructors. Furthermore I started competing in 2016 as a fitness model and made the final at bodypower in 2017
The team helped me with posing and mobility work when I was injured. My physique has been created and helped by fashionable fitness and has made me have model opportunities in London and New York. I would recommend anyone to join fashionable fitness as your journey & opportunities can be found there.
I have been a member of the gym for several years. My initial reason for joining was weight loss, I have had some success with that but now my overall goal is to maintain my fitness levels and become stronger.
There is always a warm welcome when you enter reception. The fitness team are all encouraging and supportive and are always willing to advise you or help however they can. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my goals without the support of Rob. He has supported me through my weight loss and injuries, he has always found alternative ways for me to train around my injuries without causing further problems.
I vary what I do in the gym between classes and training with a friend. There are various classes to accommodate everyone and all are delivered with good instruction and enthusiasm. I would highly recommend fashionable fitness to people wanting a good, clean well-equipped gym.
Wowzers what an incredible journey so far, 5th November will be my 2nd year anniversary, since I made a big decision to join a gym. I was completely unaware my life would change forever. From my first PT session with Ricky I knew my fitness journey was going the be challenging, Ricky with his vast amount of fitness knowledge, soon tailored a program suitable for my goals. Which was to lose weight and become stronger, as the months went by I noticed radical changes and my confidence grew.
Now I’m making tons of progress and having fun, I have seen a significant fat loss and healthier more positive change within myself.
The staff at fashionable are like my 2nd family, always helpful and supportive.
I attend many classes a week, but my favourite is total body conditioning which is strength based training. I’m always trying to push myself and I have made so many friends who support and encourage me. I love helping others and I love to be that inspiration for others.
Just a few words of thanks to Lauren and all the gang at Fashionable Fitness.
There are many reasons why people go to the gym, different people of varying ages and abilities. For me it was mental health.
I have been a sufferer of depression for a number of years, experienced lots of low times and been in some dark places. I’ve seen therapist and taken lots of medication.
I am very fortunate to have an amazing wife in Lucy, and a family who have helped me through these times, and I thank them every day.
I would also like to thank Lauren and all the staff at Fashionable Fitness for helping me on my journey.I was unsure whether or not exercise could help me at all, and at first, I had to force myself to workout. 18 months on I now have to force myself to stop and I feel it has played a significant part of me getting better.
In the gym there are no variables, its just me and the machine or weights. It’s a place where I can put on my headphones, shut out the world and get in the zone.
I would highly recommend Fashionable Fitness and all the great staff (especially Lauren) to anyone who may find themselves in the same position.
Thanks again Fashionable Fitness for pushing me and helping me to be more.
