Before

After

I first started training with Sonia over a year ago. I hadn’t stepped into a gym for over twenty years but I wanted to get back training again to lose weight improve my fitness. The thought of going into a public gym was intimidating and I didn't know what to do because of my back pain. I finally bit the bullet and booked my first session with Sonia. Straight away I was made to feel at ease; on my consultation, her wealth of knowledge shone through. We spoke about what I wanted to achieve & Sonia gave me advice and helped me set realistic goals. She created an exercise plan that worked around my back pain and other injuries. I’ve never been the healthiest of eaters but after talking with Sonia, she gave me advice on healthier substitutes for the food I was eating. After a year, I’m still seeing Sonia. My confidence has grown, my eating habits are healthier, and I have noticeably improved my mobility. I can’t thank Sonia enough for literally changing my life.

"Sonia is amazing! She is a great personal trainer and nutritional coach. I would recommend her to anyone. I could eat what I wanted and Sonia providing the motivation and encouragement I needed to make a change. Sonia was eager for me to do well and that she wanted me to learn how to look after myself, not just to lose weight over a short period of time. I lost 3.5st and haven't put any on since! Thanks Sonia, I could not have done it without your help and support!"

"I started training with Sonia about a year ago and ever since my passion and enjoyment for training has grown. Along with many young women, I have always been interested in getting fit but haven't quite known how to. Sonia improved my overall confidence and knowledge of weight training massively. She taught me skills and techniques that I have taken into the gym independently and all round changed the way I work out."

"Sonia from Murray Health has given me body confidence I never thought possible at the age of 50. A year ago, my husband and I wanted to climb Mount Snowdon; I couldn’t walk up a hill without getting out of breath. We trained with Sonia 3 times per week. She gave me the strength and endurance to tackle this huge mountain. I was so pleased with my achievement. I then asked Sonia to help me lose weight and tone up. She gave me invaluable advice on creating a healthy eating plan that fit around my busy lifestyle. I did two personal training session and two circuit classes per week and the results were amazing. I was asked to do photo shoot and I actually had the body confidence to do it. I am so pleased I have come this far and I have to thank Sonia so much for this. It wasn't easy and I had a few setbacks but Sonia was there to support me every step of the way."

"I was running about twice a week but found it quite solitary and boring. I saw an advert for Sonia’s circuit classes with Murray Health and I thought I would them a try. I was hooked after the first session. I have noticeably improved my fitness and met a great bunch of people. Everyone works to their own ability and no one is in competition with each other, which is what has kept me there for almost a year. The circuit classes are lively and fun but most importantly, Sonia designs them to work all muscle groups. She changes them each week and uses different equipment at each station so you don’t get bored doing the same exercise. They are now part of my Tuesday evenings."

The top questions we get asked

We can train both males and females over the age of 18.

You can book in between 6.00am – 8.00pm, Monday to Friday and 8am – 12pm on a Saturday. We understand people are living busy lives, so our hours are flexible to suit all needs.

The nature of personal training is such that it incorporates your needs, goals and preferences. We will need to ask some initial questions during the consultation, which probe the demands that are placed on you from your job or lifestyle. Typically, the consultation last about an hour will include questions about.

  • Basic personal details
  • Medical background
  • Fitness background
  • Lifestyle factors (e.g. smoking or drinking)
  • Nutritional habits (you may be asked to keep a diary)
  • Personal goals and objectives in relation to fitness

Depending on your recent fitness and exercise programmes (or lack of) we may ask you for a doctor’s certificate if we believe that medical conditions and/or past injuries will affect your participation in a training session. If you are under the care of a doctor for any reason, you may be asked to see your doctor to obtain their clearance first.

Please be aware that your doctor may charge you for this.

Yes. We completely understand that people lead busy lives, so we’re flexible on sessions and you won’t have to stick to the same time each week.

A minimum of 24 hours’ notice of cancellation is required for all sessions, so we can reallocate your session.

Notice of less than 24 hours will incur full payment of the session fee.

If you are late for a session the session will not extended and will end at the previously agreed time. If the trainer is late, additional time will be added to the session or to subsequent sessions.

Clothes should be comfortable and non-restrictive; footwear should be comfortable and provide adequate support.

Yes, we are fully qualified Personal Trainers. See the qualifications section higher up this page for more information.

We do a mixture of resistance, functional and cardiovascular training, but we will only do the exercises that you feel happy to do.  Our job is to create a personal training programme best suited to you and that you’ll enjoy and stick to in order for you to reach your goal.

Prices vary, as we offer various packages with discounts on block bookings.

You can pay cash, bank transfer, debit card, or monthly by standing order. For a one-off session you can pay on the day at a cost of £30 per session

Yes. Whether it’s working out as a couple or with friend we have the package to suit you.

We are fully aware that in order to change an unhealthy lifestyle you have to work within it. You will find that we can give you nutritional and lifestyle advice – whether you take it is up to you. We will give you the skills and support for you to make healthy choices that will last.

No, only qualified dietitian can prescribe a diet plan. We will work with you and give the advice and skills for you to create your own healthy meal plan that is tailored to your needs and best suited to achieve your goals.

The aim is to provide long term strategies for change and not quick fix options that won’t last.

A personal training session will normally last for one hour. This will consist of a brief warm-up followed by your main training programme where you will focus on your goals using cardiovascular, strength or flexibility exercises. Finally, there will be a cool down and stretching. Any programme may vary from one session to the next according to the client’s needs and progress.
