I had been seeing a personal trainer for about 8 years and had thoroughly enjoyed working with the same self-employed PT based at another Chester venue. I decided to take a break just before Christmas with a view to going back after we had moved house. I met Steve at a networking meeting and was immediately impressed with the drive and vision he has for his business. We had a 1-2-1 at his gym and I was very impressed with the whole set up and feel of the facility. I subsequently took Steve up on the three introductory sessions offer he makes to new customers but decided after two that Steve’s set up was exactly what I needed to get my motivation back to start training again. His sessions are interesting and varied but always very well thought out. I have arthritis in both knees as well as in my back which limits some of the things I can do, but Steve always finds a way around that so I always get a full work out. I now have my motivation back and really look forward to every session. The combination of Steve’s knowledge and the environment that his gym creates is unbeatable and unique in personal training in Chester. I simply cannot recommend Steve and Elysium Health and Fitness highly enough. Barry Frost Director Commercial Plus (Chester) Ltd
I first contacted Steve quite a few years ago after having seen how he had helped my friend to lose weight. I wanted to lose weight too and so my journey began. Steve and the Personal Trainers at Elysium have worked safely, patiently and very effectively with me to achieve my goals of weight loss and they have improved body strength and fitness. Sessions are focused totally on my goals using a huge variety of equipment; my favourites are kettle bells, bungee rope and boxing. Training is now fun! I have learned how to strengthen my body and become more toned and my goal is being met and I am now more keen to consistently adopt my newly learned lifestyle changes to become fitter and stronger. I have become mentally stronger too. A huge part of my continuing to train at Elysium are the excellent facilities. I can confidently try new things in the privacy of the studio, parking is easy and the gym is spotlessly clean and tidy. Equipment is always where it should be! I’m always offered a protein drink after my session before I go for a shower. Showers are immaculately clean and contemporary with freshly laundered white towels and complimentary luxury toiletries. The PTs also offer remote nutrition tracking via an app which reminds me of my nutrition goals and keeps me accountable. They can also give nutritional advice and great ideas for meal plans that fit into normal family life. Elysium is my “place and state of perfect happiness”; my journey continues……..
Been training at Elysium since its opened and I absolutely love it. In the last year I’ve completed the Wilmslow 10k, Chester 10k, Chester half, The Great North run, The Chester Metric Marathon and I’ve signed up to the Chester full marathon 2019. The facilities are excellent, there is everything I would expect and more in terms of great equipment and nice clean showers/changing facilities. I really enjoy the structured variety of the trainer offer, everything from rehab and not letting any injuries affect my progress to making every session fun & enjoyable, i feeling fitter than ever! I would highly recommend these guys to anybody considering getting fit & healthy.
After a number of years of PT in a commercial gym was thrilled with the opening of Elysium. A lovely rustic building, with a very special welcome inside. All the equipment you could possibly need but without anything to distract from focusing on your workout. Well planned workouts without waiting for equipment. No worries of too many others watching you get into shape. Love the privacy, which helps to gain confidence. Parking pre workout, protein and showers post workout. Perfect place with amazing trainers. Hilary.
Steve now runs Elysium, so for anyone who feels like I did this is perfect for you, no one else is there it is so personal just you and a trainer. Don’t be like me and convince yourself with excuses do it now – Steve is an amazing trainer so whatever your goal whether it is to lose weight or just to get fit I cannot recommend or thank him enough.
Since training with Steve my fitness level has gone through the roof, I am off the blood sugar roller coaster, as a result I have more energy levels and I feel safer. The Nurse that downloads my data has never seen results like them!
Since training with Steve he’s opened my mind into different ways to train which has enabled me to be fitter and stronger, learning new exercises, applying correct techniques whilst enjoying my training.
