Testimonials - John Ferry Fitness


I'm of two who’d returned to work with little time or energy to exercise or diet. I lost over a stone in just 8 weeks! If I can do it anyone can. I didn’t live off rabbit food. I didn’t weigh myself every day or obsess about calories. I just followed my plan and made it work around my work and home life. My family ate what I ate and it felt good showing our kids how to be healthy too. I was encouraged to make my own goals and supported to achieve them. I've genuinely never been so motivated or energetic about a weight loss or exercise programme and I’ve tried every diet going. This was just easier. I put my success down to John. I felt like he was reading my mind. He knew exactly how I was feeling and when I needed it, he’d pull something else out of the bag to motivate, guide and support me.  He wasn’t unrealistic, he understands that life gets in the way and he never makes you feel bad. He even got me planking, he must be good!

A year ago I decided to focus on my health and well-being. I had become sluggish and overweight and I wasn’t happy with myself. I did use the gym but with mixed results and I really needed help with my diet. John offered to help me.
First, we assessed my eating habits. I was given some guidelines to follow and food swaps recommendations that were easy to implement. 

To this day I still prepare most of my meals in advance so I don’t find myself snacking on fast foods.
I now exercise 3 times a week which is less than I was doing before but I get better results. I have cut the cardio right down and use more weights. The difference is amazing! I can now see a real shape to my body and muscle definition. 
Over the course of a year, I have lost over 3 stone and I am very happy with how I look. I can’t recommend John enough!

I started training with John to lose stubborn weight around my middle and tone up. Being a bit of a binge exerciser in the past I found John's calm and controlled approach to training worked for me. Through various bodyweight workouts and weight training my overall strength & fitness has improved and I've completed exercises I would never have tried on my own in the gym.
Thanks, John!

This was an amazing programme. John helped me lose 13lbs in just 8 weeks with his plan. I found his support and dedication was key in helping me reach my goals. He was always there to help and advise. There are not many trainers who go above and beyond but John Ferry does.  

Tracy McElhinney, 30

I wasn't happy with my body shape, the extra weight or my level of fitness. I was approaching my mid-forties and knew I needed to be kicked into gear. John Ferry helped me do that. I found him extremely approachable and understanding of the rollercoaster of losing and gaining weight. He's easygoing but at the same time, he gives you that boost that you need to keep going. A big bonus for me was that he gave me the confidence to step inside the world of the gym which I had been too terrified to contemplate before. There were days when I didn't feel like working out but with some words of encouragement from John, I did it. I feel and look so much better after using his programme, thank you, John

John is a very encouraging coach and his nutrition advice and tailor-made exercise sessions have helped me to understand my body's needs.

What an amazing life changing decision and experience this has been for me. I managed to lose half a stone in the 6 weeks leading up to Christmas with the Mission Lean plan. John is a fab coach who offers incredible support. He is there for you 24/7. I would recommend him highly. If you want to lose weight this year then John is your man.
