“Working with Laurel has taught me so much, not just about physical fitness but also on having the right mindset towards my weight-loss. I’ve been a constant yo-yo dieter and this is the first time I’ve been able to have a fully balanced lifestyle, still enjoying a social life and while achieving my goals.”
“Laurel is super focused on working with you to get you the results you want. She is a rare and unique combination of great fun to be around, professionalism, and really knows what she is doing, that you need from a PT”
“Laurel listened to my goals, and assessed my form, correcting any issues before increasing the weight. Since starting with her, my deadlifts have increased from 40kg to 95kg and Leg press has increased from 80kg to 150kg. Laurel motivates me to achieve my goals and push beyond them.”

Chrissy reignited my love for the gym, and introduced me to weigh training. Few months later I found myself squatting and deadlifting more than my own body weight. Loved our training sessions and the push she gave me for them last few reps. Would recommend in a heartbeat.
We had great few months together with tough workouts but with very worthwhile results. I was shocked with the before and after results in my photos. She got me in shipshape for my wedding I be forever thankful for. I’d recommend her as a brilliant pt and very genuine person.
I love training with Chrissy, She really listened to want I wanted to achieve. I got the results I wanted and now we continue on training because no one will push you like she does she brings out the best in me . Best pt around!

When I started in Raw, I was a member for two years who never strayed too far from the cardio machines and never tried a class. When I started training with a personal trainer who introduced me to weight training, I then decided to go back to study fitness. I had one clear mission, to be able to educate and empower women, help them gain confidence in who they were but also show them how strong they could be through weight training and exercise. Remember lifting weights does not make you big and bulky.
Exercise has always been a passion of mine, having competed in swimming competitions for years, I've been lucky to use exercise for both a physical and mental aspect. Believe me, once you start to exercise and push your body and mindset to a new level you will feel like a winner.
Hannah has made me fall in love with training again and empowered me to feel the best I've ever felt.
Training with Hannah has reinstalled my confidence, along with both my physical and mental strength, having a positive impact on all aspects of my life.
Hannah always delivers a challenging workout that will renew confidence in your body and lift your spirits. After years of being clueless going from fat to fit - I'll never leave her!
I started working as a trainer in 2008. In that time I have seen different training fads come and go. In an industry that has so much conflicting information, I like to be a person's bridge into this world, helping them become more knowledgeable, comfortable and independent in the gym. If I can do this, I feel it’s mission accomplished.

Boxing training with Antony got my fitness levels back up and fast. The sessions are challenging, fun and definitely never boring – I’ve learned a lot! I couldn’t recommend him more highly.
I started training with Anthony almost a year ago, and I couldn’t be more thankful. He has totally changed my outlook on different training techniques and opened my eyes up to the world of boxing.

’Working out with Nicola was the highlight of my week. She is enthusiastic, motivating and completely in tune with my goals and how to meet them. She helped me to feel confident with myself inside and out!
Nicola is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and motivated personal trainer who has helped me push past my personal bests and motivate me to strive for more! Would recommend to anyone!
’I have been attending Raw gym since July and to give me that extra push to ensure I would attend I signed up to personal training.. I requested someone who was supportive and challenging and Nicola has fulfilled that roll. What I particularly liked that she listened to my needs and created a programme to suit me. As I get older going to the gym isnt always just about losing weight, I feel I have got stronger and its helped with posture. Initially feeling like an imposter in the gym Nicola encourages supportes and challenges me where I now feel comfortable . I would totally recommend her.’’
