Personal Training

Therapy Banner

Our emphasis is on personal. We all have our own needs and goals be they fitness, weight loss or just enjoying testing our physical condition. Setting a personalised programme is essential and all our trainers will initially determine what is right for you.


We are very fortunate to have so much talent under one roof. There are trainers who specialise in back and neck pain and balance disorders. We are very keen to help rehabilitation of injury or assisting recovery after major surgery. Unfortunately the NHS only allows very little physio and no personal training which we know are essential for making a full recovery. If you want help with weight loss then it is a simple equation increase exercise and calorie use and reduce calorie intake. All our trainers work with nutritionists to make this happen for you but it does require each and every one of us to take ownership of our health and wellbeing.

Personal training needs to be enjoyable as well as affective and challenging. It should be something to look forward to on a regular basis knowing you have the encouragement and support not just of the trainers but all who work at The Body Factory.

Mark decided early that fitness and personal training was for him and rapidly passed his level 2, level 3 and level 4 personal training qualifications. He has also completed the GP referral course.  This will make him one of the few personal trainers who have extended their knowledge to that level. He has a special interest in back pain and weight loss.


A more than useful footballer, he is a natural at all sports and has an enthusiasm about his training that is as effective as it is inventive and enjoyable.  Mark works on the principle that all aspects of life are fun and that should include what you do with regard to your physical health and training programmes. 


He has been a full time Personal Trainer within the David Lloyd organisation. He has developed a specialist interest in the Personal training of people with back pain Many PT’s fight shy of this problem as it can be so challenging to help. Mark has the opposite approach recognising that such sufferers need extra skilled assistance and Mark will work with you to make sure you are in control of your back not your back in control of your life His working motto is “Get Back in control”.
