“I am delighted to provide a testimonial for a great Personal Trainer and all round nice guy, Tristan Hand. I originally started training with him in June 2016 with the intention of sticking around for a few weeks to get in shape before my summer holidays. I ended up staying for 8 months.

We all set out with goals for our personal training - lose weight, gain muscle etc. but what I’ve learned it that it’s equally important to know why you’re doing what you're doing. It’s all good and well doing what you’re told to get results, what sets Tristan apart as a trainer is his ability as a teacher as well. It’s a willingness to share knowledge, an approach and principles with clients that separates Tristan from the rest.

In my experience many trainers out there are focused on short term strategies that will ensure you reach a goal rapidly, all the while creating an unsustainable approach to diet or training that is only building you up to come crashing down. Not Tristan! Tristan’s approach is firmly focused on the systems and processes you need to create a sustainable lifelong habit that you can continue to build. Tristan’s approach has fostered an interest in health in me that I will carry through life.

To sum up, for Tristan, personal training is not a job, it's a passion. I highly recommend Tristan if you want someone knowledgeable, interested, motivational and pleasant to help you work out your goals and make steady progress that can transform your life.”
