Prior to working with Chris my exercise routine was very sporadic and my fitness levels were pretty low. Chris has helped me achieve much higher levels of fitness which in turn has helped me feel better, physically and mentally. I can now squat down and get up without huffing and puffing! Result!… read more
In my 20s and 30s I had always struggled with my weight and gradual increases over the years had seen my weight peak at a size 18/20. I’d tried joining gyms but it was always the same, I never knew what to do when I got there and soon cancelled the membership. Fitness classes were the same, I would start full of enthusiasm to do something but nothing would change and I’d gradually stop going… read more
I approached CD Fitness on Instagram in October of 2018 after driving past the gym every day on my way to work. I had lost about 3/3.5 stone with Slimming World in the 12 months prior and I was looking for that extra ‘boost’. I didn’t really do much exercise alongside Slimming World and I found the idea of entering a gym with no idea what to do very daunting… read more
I started training with Chris after a trial session and in 5 months Chris helped totally transform my body. I have been with other trainers in the past and never been inspired to lose weight and get fit until I met Chris. He offered me 24/7 support on top of training me 3 times a week to help me lose over 3 stone. Sessions are always different; they can be… read more

My weight has yo-yoed over the years and last summer decided that the time had come to start to get fit and lose some weight. My husband Gary and I joined the gym and I was keen to make a difference and worked out regularly.

I started training with Chris in January 2014 in the hope to shed those extra unwanted pounds in time for my wedding in July 2014.

When I turned Professional in 2014 I had a goal to continue to increase my levels of strength & fitness and improve my concentration.

My weight has increased over the years- with the help of Weight Watchers, I managed to lose a stone last year but noticed that I wasn’t shifting any more weight or toning my body up either even though I was exercising regularly.

I met Chris Dean when feeling in bad shape following a large shoulder operation; didn’t think I could do anything to keep fit but he inspired me with a specially tailored exercise program.

His approach gave me the motivation to stick to my goals and keep doing more without making me feel… read more
I have been going to the gym on a regular basis for 12 years and got stuck in a routine of doing the same thing every time I trained. I decided to have some personal training sessions with Chris in the months running up to my wedding with the hope of loosing a few pounds and generally toning up for the big day and honeymoon… read more
Before using personal training I had successfully shed a significant amount of excess weight and achieved a level of fitness that was not too bad. But I wanted to lose just a few more kilos, be fitter still and improve stamina. My energy levels were very low. I wouldn’t run fast for more than a minute or last more than 20 minutes at the gym… read more
