I’ve been going to gyms for 25 years and had many different trainers. Marco is without a doubt the best trainer I’ve ever had. His relaxed approach belies the expertise and preparation that goes into every session. No two sessions are ever the same and the variety and results help keep up the enthusiasm. Every programme is tailored to the individual and he never imposes some kind of generic programme, it is always bespoke. As well as his professional expertise he is good company and he makes all workouts enjoyable. I’d recommend him highly to anyone interested in personal training. (But his singing is dreadful).

Marco is an expert at what he does, enthusiastic and full of energy, knowledgable in so many different areas, and a great motivator. He is approachable and friendly, and training with him is not only effective but great fun too. I recommend him!

I first started exercising with Marco just after I’d had serious covid. I could barely lift one kg, yet the class was great fun and left me feeling stronger and more energetic. It’s now about two months my later, and I’m going from strength to strength. Marco is always friendly and professional, the exercises are really varied, and I’m really enjoying getting fitter. Thank you!!!!! (I’m only being nice so he goes easy on me in the next class…)

I started training with Marco in 2016. At that point I had lost confidence in my body. I’d had a baby and was still struggling to lose the final few kilos a year on. I had tried everything from high impact cardio, bikram yoga, bootcamps and pilates and nothing was working for me. Marco totally changed my approach to training. He made everything very simple and explained that I could easily reach my goal as it was all science based. It was so reassuring and refreshing to hear that it would no longer be such a challenge. Sure enough in just a few months I was in the best shape of my life. I had lost the weight and really loved working out. It was no longer something I “had” to do. The difference was notable. He didn’t just focus on weight loss he worked on my posture, technique and building up my strength. I have been training with him ever since because I know that I can trust his process and that it will deliver results. Each session is varied and specifically tailored to you. His friendly and calm approach always makes sessions fun even though they push you to go beyond your limit. Marco is great trainer, the absolute best and I would highly recommend him.
