WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
Stephanie Ireland (client of the month and BC21day winner)
I have been struggling with depression and anxiety for 3 years, while feeling lonely, low on energy and unhappy with my health. I realised I was fed up with these emotions and needed to help myself as I no longer wanted to feel unhappy with my fitness levels. I needed to make a long term change for my family and myself.
I was scrolling through FB and saw Chris talking about the positives of the programme he offered. Chris sounded upbeat about the benefits of Stronger for Longer which encompasses small group PTs, nutritional advice and regular accountability sessions to keep me motivated and feel supported.
Chris, Zoe and Jon are amazing and so compassionate with their clients. They are positive and keep you motivated. Their dedication is apparent from the first phone call, to first accountability meeting, to the first training session. Throughout, they show friendship and a non judgemental attitude. Alongside this, the 6 week foundation programme is a great price.
If I were describing this to my friends I would say it is the best thing I have ever done. Stronger for Longer adapt their service to each individual with a positive, friendly attitude. They make the hour long sessions fun every time and can adapt routines to suit different abilities. You can do as many sessions as you like in the first 6 weeks. They are dedicated to getting the very best results and they are there whenever you need them, messaging back promptly.
I really needed help with my nutrition and food planning. They have a great understanding of what I need to eat, to become healthier. They provide structure and routine to my exercise and diet. I have the energy to do more exercise and the confidence to try more complicated training moves. I love working out in a group of people. I have improved my knowledge of how to train and use gym equipment. I’m confident to push myself to the limit and have a passion to achieve my weight loss target.
I’ve tried other gyms in the past and none offer the support that Body Complete does. I can access good advice from Zoe, Jon and Chris as well as enjoy general chit chat. You get well constructed sessions at an affordable price. This experience means that I can lead a healthier, happier life. I am more confident, have energy to play with my kids and my mental health has improved. The changes I have made I can stick with for the rest of my life. I can become stronger for longer.
Steve Flintoft on Small Group Training
I realised I needed to reignite my passion for fitness. I have always been a keen runner, but I needed advice on looking after the full me. (more…)
BodyComplete came highly recommended by my physiotherapist. I had been struggling with some niggles and wanted to start taking my fitness seriously, so I approached Chris for training.
I had a bike accident on a track day where I high sided my motorbike and went over the front. I landed on my shoulder and broke my clavicle. After having physio on it there was still a reduction in movement and the muscle groups around it had tightened.

Over 5 years ago I had a bad cycling accident which unfortunately resulted in my right shoulder being dislocated and broken and my left shoulder with a dislocation also. The injuries sustained to my right shoulder have been extremely debilitating and frustrating for myself, resulting in very limited mobility and lack of strength in the shoulder. (more…)
I joined Body Complete just over a year ago, after my husband joined. I wasn’t looking at joining a gym, as I did running/cycling/yoga already. However, after my husband raved on about BC I thought I would give it a go. Well… I haven’t looked back!
I’d like to share with you my weight loss and fitness journey with Body Complete and Stronger For Longer.
Heading ever nearer to 50 (and far quicker than I’d like) I decided to join Stronger for Longer, after a recommendation from a friend.
Over the years I’ve trained with Body Complete as its evolved from it’s starting point as an outdoor bootcamp to a small group inside training business incorporating semi private and private training sessions.
Team Bowes – Stuart and Sharon
We first met Chris in a previous life, when joined a gym he was connected with and we realized what a massive amount of knowledge and enthusiasm he possessed with regards to his profession. (more…)
In my 20s I was extremely active – my day job was very physical and I was healthy and quite strong. However from my late 20s onwards I had a very sedentary job – basically sat in front of a computer, all day every day, and I didn’t get much exercise in my spare time either.
As a result, all through my 30s and for most of my 40s I became increasingly overweight.
I joined the Stronger for Longer programme initially as I had a bad back and felt like an old croc struggling through the day. GP couldn’t help so I asked Chris for help. After the first few minutes he had identified the issues and after the first 30 mins I felt well-oiled and like a new person. I’ve had no issues at all ever since. (more…)
7 weeks ago I asked Chris Stringer and George Barker if they would put a 6 week “Beasted” program together for me. This came from watching former world strongest man Eddie “The Beast” Hall record a series of “Beasted” challenges where he took people with completely different body types and put them through 6 weeks of training.
The Coaching Team
Latest feedback from our clients on the BC Dream Team.
Chris, George and Jon are all excellent coaches and bring different aspects to each session. It is good to experience all of the instructors to learn different methods and thoughts on how to approach getting fitter and stronger.
Chris brings experience and humour and his sessions flow brilliantly. He pushes you on to maximise your efforts to get the most out of you. (more…)
What does SFL mean to me:
Life, living, vitality, energy, well-being, positivity, structure, strength, hope, which ripples to the whole family.
From feeling 100 with a bad back and lifelong painkillers, Chris sorted me out in 3 minutes. The sessions have transformed my mindset and health which has impacted on my family. (more…)
My Husband said he wanted to join a gym and I said ‘why, we have joined gyms before and been those people that pay and do not go?’ He said this is a different gym. So he went for a meeting with Chris and joined. A month after that our daughter joined also.
A month later after listening to what Pete had been doing with Chris I decided to have a chat with Chris and then joined. (more…)
BC 21 Day Participants Review
I have thoroughly enjoyed my short time on the 21 day challenge with Chris ,Zoe and the early riser Jon . The classes are totally enjoyable but tough. They know their stuff and it was addictive .. friendliest gym I have ever walked in to . The results were awesome and now I’m looking forward to January when I feel I will be ready to go back . Loved it , see you all soon , Anna
I started the 21 day challenge to kick start my healthy eating and increase my exercise. (more…)
I joined Body Complete in September 2018 on the BC4X programme. I’ve been running for four years – usually three or four times a week, but not really doing anything else in the way of fitness and exercise. I wanted to do something that would complement the running; I have no upper body strength and my core needed work! (more…)
Over two years ago I had a bad cycling accident which unfortunately resulted in my right shoulder being dislocated and broken and my left shoulder with a dislocation also. The injuries sustained to my right shoulder have been extremely debilitating and frustrating for myself.
I cannot recommend Body Complete enough. I love all the people that attend. They are so friendly and welcoming. The workouts are never the same which keeps you on your toes. Chris is amazing at ensuring that technically you make every rep work for you. Nip in and speak to Zoe who will show you around and chat through the best options for you.
I use to compete for fun in 10k trail and road runs, mountain biking and triathlons, then I tore my cartilage in my knee which stopped me from doing any sport, it was operated on in May 2017 and they found arthritis in my knee. (more…)
Since meeting Chris on our first session I was encouraged by his personality, knowledge and his ability to quickly understand you, not just what you want or problems you might have but what works for you as a person. (more…)
I joined Body Complete just as a 21 day challenge was about to start so the timing was perfect for me (even though I didn’t really have a proper idea of what I was signing up for!). (more…)
I’ve just finished the 21 day Challenge with Body Complete, and am over the moon with the results.Thing is, I knew I would be. It’s a programme that works, and that’s for a number of reasons:
Alan Prole (21 Day Winner)
The results of the 21 Day Transformation programme have surpassed all my hopes and expectations.
Before starting I was the heaviest I’ve ever been and I’d not done much exercise for months. I doubted if I had the willpower to stick to it and maybe I was just getting to old to bother with the gym.
I have always tried to look after myself and keep active but have always done it on my own, either at home using DVDs or swimming and walking.
Never even considered PT until I had a hip replacement and found that some of the follow up exercises were hurting my knees.
I’ve always been into exercise and stuff, have tried to keep active and fit but mostly done it on my own at home. I exercised from videos and went walking but if my routine got interrupted by anything it took me ages to get back into it.
My name is Anne, I’m 54 years old and I want to tell you about my experience of being a client of Body Complete gym.
My story starts some years ago when I discovered that I weighed more than 16 stone.
I signed up for private training sessions with Chris at Body Complete….
It was quite challenging at first as I had not done much resistance training in the past, but after just a few months I really noticed improvements in my general fitness, core strength and flexibility.

My sister and I have been going to Body Complete for four weeks now and we love it!
This is not your usual gym – we have regular check ins with Chris to monitor progress and we have been given nutrition plans which has changed our entire way of thinking about food.
