Dixie Rowland - 17/07/2021

Sam has been amazing to work with, he is supportive and knowledgeable. His positive attitude and encouragement make even the toughest work out bearable and I have been so pleased to see improvements in my strength. Sam has made sure to take into account previous injuries and my personal goals so even though the sessions are definitely hard work I always feel I’m really improving thanks to Sam.

 

Ben Jones - 12/07/2021

I have trained with Sam on two occasions, both with two distinct goals in mind: The first with the goal of bulking up before going travelling, and the second time (a couple of years later) with the goal of doing a clean up to lose some lockdown fat and build some lean muscle. Both times Sam has helped me reach my goals and has kept me motivated throughout. He also knows his specialism inside and out as well as being incredibly easy to get along with. If you put in the work in and out of the gym and put your trust in Sam, you WILL see results.

Have been training with Sam for a few weeks now , nothing is to much trouble and his knowledge is second to none , my training is aimed towards my goals and the increases I have made in such a short time are impressive. Sam is decent trainer who pushes you towards you goals and motivates you to get that last rep in. Cant wait to see where ill be in a few months under Sam's guidance. Would highly recommend Sam to anyone and everyone, you'll be pushed to find a better PT.

Chris S - 01/08/2020 - PERSONAL TRAINING DURING COVID

I really wasn’t sure how getting back in the gym after a four month gap was going to work out. Sam has been a huge help and provided some much needed motivation as well as the benefit of his own experience. It is really important to have someone who can challenge you in a realistic and safe way. Sam understands the need to start at a manageable level rather than attempting to go all out. He is also really good at ensuring that all the equipment we use is clean and safe. Sam is a great PT.

Anne-Marie- 31/07/2020 - PERSONAL TRAINING DURING COVID

Had my first personal training session back today with Sam Gough at physiques and shapes . I was very pleased with the layout and the social distancing measures that were put in place . Sam made me feel very comfortable and was professional in wiping down all the equipment before I used it and then again when I was finished, there was cleaning products all around the gym and a system in place for entry and exit I would like to thank all at physiques and shapes for all their effort to make sure you felt all was put in place to make your gym session feel safe and welcome so if you are thinking about going back or even thinking about starting a gym I would definitely recommend 😃great to see you again !

He is so helpful and has set me up with everything I need. whenever I have a question or need him, he is always there. Really gets to know your personal situation and what you want to achieve. He is fantastic and I would definitely recommend.

Sam has a well balanced approach to training and keeps clients motivated with constant progression.

Emma H. 01/03/2020

Sam has been great from the start, professional, with the patience of a saint. 10/10 despite his annoying habit of standing just out of range when you want to make kicking him look like an accident. Clearly a seasoned pro.

Alan B - 30/01/2020

Sam is knowledgeable and reliable. He takes care to have me work in a safe way while pushing me my limits in a programme designed for me as an individual. I would recommend Sam to anyone.

Jess B - 30/1/2020

I have been training with Sam for just over a month now and being a nurse my schedule is extremely limited and at times unreliable. Sam always manages to work something out with my hectic time table and has created a programme which pushes me but also supports me. I always feel comfortable and I know I’m in safe hands. I’ve never been someone to go to the gym but I find myself looking forward to the sessions as it’s been so good for me to switch off from life for a little while. Would highly recommend.
