John joined The PT Studio back in August last year with a goal to get in to the best shape of his life!

After deciding his best chance would be to focus on first, building enough muscle mass before stripping the body fat to show off his results, he first completed a number of months working on gaining some size.

Once he reached the goal weight set out for him, it was time to start his Fit & Lean Transformation Programme!!

The results below have been over just 15 weeks losing an incredible 3 stones and 8 pounds!!!

Check out John’s story below…

“These are the results of my 15 week Transformation Programme at the PT Studio with Niki.

I joined the PT Studio in August 2017 when I decided it was time to change my approach in order to achieve my long term goals. I was assigned to Niki and we sat down and formulated a training and diet plan that was sustainable around my personal commitments.

It was made clear that in order to achieve my desired goal it would be done in 2 stages. Initially a bulk phase was needed to increase my body size, muscle mass and strength then a second cutting phase would return me back into a lean body frame.

I had never done anything like this before and I felt I was goin in the wrong direction but my advice is
“Trust the PT Studio process” it has left me in the best psychological and physical condition of my life.

The physical changes in my body are obvious but this is only a bonus to how I feel inside!

I am honoured and proud to call Niki my PT. This young man’s attitude and outstanding level of knowledge in relation to the science behind how the body works is impressive. He has guided me through every step and rep of my journey.

All the PT studio team create a welcoming and motivating atmosphere in which to train, inspiring you to achieve your goals.

Thank you PT Studio”



Heather started her Transformation Programme with us Just 12 Weeks ago and crushed it!!

Her goal was to learn how to take control of her health, fitness and body shape to get into the BEST shape she could in just 3 short months…

Losing over a stone, building some incredible lean muscle definition and dropping 24 inches all together with a huge 8 inches lost from around her waist alone!

But rather than go on and on all day (And we could 😉), I’m gonna hand over the microphone to Heather to tell her side of the story…

“Prior to embarking on a Transformation Programme with Marie, I had been a member at the PT studio for a few months. The decision came about at a time in my life where my wellbeing needed a positive focus.

Not only that, but as I am due to make the change from full time work back to study later in the year, I wanted to learn as much as possible about diet, form & technique while I had the chance.

So, I gave myself 3 months…

After a discussion with Marie I decided to have 2 PT sessions a week, topping that up with 3-4 weekly workouts on my own. With no real goals in mind, I told Marie that I wanted to ‘hammer’ the three months and work toward being able to do one unassisted pull up.

Marie made training plans available to me and pointed me in the right direction as to what I should train every week and I experimented with them, adding some of my own exercises too.

The PT sessions were tough but I wouldn’t have had them any other way. Marie knew when she could push me and test my limits – although those sneaky extra reps just about ended me!

A big part of what I wanted to gain from my time with Marie was understanding the diet do’s and don’ts. As much as training is important, the results I’ve achieved would never have been possible without the diet plans and the advice of Marie and all the coaches at The PT Studio.

It’s so helpful to be able to ask any questions and know any of the coaches will be on hand to answer. Plus, having them on your back means that in the inevitable tougher times you’re making the right choices knowing that they are watching e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!

The PT Studio is a friendly and inclusive gym and one that I’ve found to be very body confident. When people see others doing well – they tell them! A big change from some of the other gyms I’ve been to. It’s so good to see people of all shapes, sizes and abilities getting on and doing their thing.

The three months have been so valuable to me – my physique has changed, I’ve boosted my self confidence and formed healthy habits that have changed me for the better.

I’ve talked to loads of people who have said ‘I couldn’t do that’ or ‘I’ve not got the willpower’ and I always say the same thing – I didn’t set out to achieve what I have, but managed with the guidance of the right coach, a bit of focus, determination and self-belief and if you dig deep you might just surprise yourself.”
