I had damaged my ankle muscle from a fall whilst travelling in South America. I gained so much weight waiting to heal. I felt so depressed, I am normally an active person and couldn't even do the simplest of things; going up the flights of stairs, running or even walking more than 5 minutes.
Before my injury I hiked a lot, went on long walks and did basic exercise. It was mainly exercising when I was in the mood - no real routine.
The results I got from the program were amazing! I'm much less fatigued and have so much more energy, I'm no longer depressed, and I lost half a stone in 3 weeks!!! I can walk fast, and deal with stress so much better now. I feel happy, and I now really enjoy exercising.
Gavin and his support and being reachable and flexible at any time has been invaluable. I learnt so much including how important my diet is and introducing protein, and he made the exercise fun and engaging. Also, I didn't have to spend hours working out to get the results I wanted!
The support of Gavin, and the flexibility of the workouts were amazing. Gavin is very knowledgeable, and he helped me to understand exercise and nutrition. Lastly, I know love lifting weights! I didn't know what to do before, but Gavin helped and guided me through everything, and now I can't believe how much I can lift!
The support is 100% there in gym and out of gym! Trust Gavin and believe in yourself. Ask Gavin as many questions as you need to, its all an education! You can do it! I went from injury and gaining a stone, to losing over a stone in under 2 months!
Thank you Gavin for being amazing!
I was making no progress in the gym or with my fitness goals. I tried some lifting, and mainly cardio and classes, but I didn't make any progress at all. It was very disheartening and I knew I needed some help.
I was going to the gym but didn’t understand how to make progress, struggled with using machines and never used free weights. Found I was just hurting myself from not using them correctly and then giving up!
So far I’ve lost all of the weight I wanted to lose, which was about 3 stone, and I’m seeing more definition. My friends and family have also noticed the difference!
Gavin kept me motivated to stay on track, his simple no nonsense advice has really helped me to understand how to get the results I wanted for so long! The app also really helped me stay focused and disciplined when I had a bit of an “off” day.
It was nice to have a laugh whilst training with Gavin, he always made me feel confident in pushing a little further. I’ve now become more confident in the gym and training on my own. I’ve also now built the foundations of strength to give me confidence in knowing that I can do certain exercises without injuring myself or doing it incorrectly.
It’s great to work with someone so down to earth and willing to help. If I’ve ever had a query on how to do something, Gavin is always ready to send me a demonstration video or a voice note to talk me through it. The app is great for tracking everything, and I’ve found it’s really helped to view all my info in one place in order to keep track of progress.
Thank you so much for helping me get to where I am, I’m the happiest in myself I’ve been in ages. I also feel like I’ve changed my lifestyle completely, so fingers crossed for more progress!

I re-gained weight after having bariatric surgery 4 years ago. I had a lack of confidence in using equipment in the gym, so I lost my mojo with my training and had no direction in what to do next to lose weight, tone, strengthen, and gain confidence in the gym and every day life.
I did lots of classes in the past initially after bariatric surgery, which worked to a point. Tried other personal trainers and online coaches, but they didn't understand my injuries from past accidents and lack of confidence in using new equipment or doing different exercises.
My mobility has increased so much, strength in my injured shoulder and left knee is stronger and more mobile, have lost 6.5kg since working with DeadFit to date. Fitness has increased so much. I'm so happy all round with the work I put in daily and the encouragement and support I receive.
Working with Gavin and DeadFit is great; he makes training fun, mixing it up every month means you cant get bored with the schedules, allowing you to keep pushing yourself further than you ever thought you could. Smashing my personal bests, week on week, seeing those inches & kg come off.
Learning to enjoy exercise, learning to use new equipment and liking how my body is looking, gaining more confidence!
Gavin and DeadFit are great to work with, as you learn what each exercise does, which muscle groups are being worked. You might not think your working hard, but the next day DOM's will prove that you have worked so hard. The recipe sheets he sends monthly have some delicious dishes that aren't difficult to make. DeadFit gives fantastic nutritional advice, not everyone is the same on their calorie intake. After my bariatric surgery, my daily calorie/portion size is greatly reduced, and working with DeadFit on maintaining this we have tweaked my daily intake so I am still losing weekly without going hungry or feeling tired through lack of nutrition
Gavin and DeadFit have given me so much confidence in myself that I can achieve anything. I feel I would of given up and not bothered with continuing to lose weight way past what the bariatric surgeon said I would lose, or increased my fitness so much, not only since the gym's re-opened, but all through the lockdown too DeadFit worked with me training in the park via Zoom.
I could never stick to a workout and didn't know what was good for weight loss and toning. I had preconceived ideas that spending hours on the cardio machines was the best way to do it.
I just did a few things myself. Cardio, some weights, some free classes in the gym.
I lost approx 10kg and dropped two dress sizes. I also have toned up, gained muscle and have muscle definition, which I didn't think was possible! I've never felt so good, and I have already got my next programme!
The support I got was amazing. If I was struggling with something I could message Gavin and he would give me guidance. The workouts allowed me to see results and I felt like I wasn't starving myself or missing out when it came to nutrition. Gavin not only trains you, but educates you so you can have a healthier lifestyle without restriction.
The feedback and advice every week was invaluable to me, as it help me to stay on track and keep me accountable to my goals. The app was incredible as it allowed me to see my progress and track nutrition. Gav's motivation and support was second to none, and I couldn't have done it without him.
I would definitely recommend DeadFit, I haven't felt this good about myself in such a long time and going to the gym doesn't feel like a chore.
No matter how much I went to the gym I couldn't shift certain areas of fat or tone up. I felt like I wasn't making any progress, and I'd gotten stuck in a rut.
I was just going to the gym. I thought that if I just went and did stuff, I would get the results I wanted.
The results I got were incredible! I lost well over a stone in weight. I toned up the areas I was struggling with, gained confidence working on weights which I had never done before, pushed my myself to do things I wouldn't have done before and enjoyed the gym. I also gained body confidence, which made me very happy.
Gaining body confidence and feeling happy in myself was by far the best things about the program.
I got a tailored program for what I wanted to achieve, and Gavin was at the end of the phone if I needed him, and the app allowed me to easily track my progress.
For anyone who's on the fence about doing it, I would just say do it! Gavin is friendly and helpful and works with you each step of the way no matter what.
I couldn't of got where I am without DeadFit. The structure, workouts, tracking, and progression are something I've never had are things I've never had. Thank you.
