I first started working with Grant last summer after requiring physio for an injury stemming from a congenital orthopaedic problem. I had always maintained a reasonably good level of fitness prior to this, running and regularly practicing yoga, but this had been curtailed for some time.
I was quite anxious about transitioning to training as I was still carrying quite a lot of discomfort and had concerns about being pushed beyond what was appropriate. I don't know why I worried! Grant made contact with my physio to ensure that my PT programme was complementary to what she had been doing and would continue my recovery - it felt like real team work!
Since then I have trained with Grant at least weekly gradually increasing the intensity and giving me the confidence to now work out in the gym on my own as well. He knows when I need to take things back a little to correct any issues, but pushes me when he knows I can take it - he's a great motivator (& knows that I respond well to a bit of gentle teasing and competition!) His knowledge of physiology and the accessible way that he explains the benefits I should derive from the exercises he adds to my programme give me reassurance that we are heading in the right direction
Grant has a very professional attitude to what he does but this doesn't stop our sessions being great fun - it always brightens my day to spend time in the gym with him and his encouragement has been fantastic.
I feel fitter, more motivated and have considerably more energy since starting to train regularly and I have seen a positive impact on all aspects of my life as a consequence.
I have no hesitation in recommending Grant to anyone looking for a personal trainer, for whatever reason, remedial or fitness
