Vino y Tapas!

posted 26 May 2017, 23:41 by Mitch Mitchell



I moved to Lanzarote almost 2 years ago and I treated it like an extended holiday,
overindulging in vino and tapas 
and forgetting any exercise other than a dip in the pool when it was too hot. 
Having decided ‘enough is enough’ when I couldn’t fit into my favourite jeans, I decided to get back to exercise. Over the years I have been to many gyms, usually giving up when I can’t see any changes. I have done many fitness programmes with many trainers but none have given me the results that I have got with Mitch in just 6 weeks! 

I met up with him at his home gym and explained what I wanted to achieve, signed up for a six week course, turned up 3 times a week and did what he told me to do. In my first six weeks I trebled the amount of push-ups I could do, increased my flexibility and fitness levels and lost 5 inches from my body and a further inch from each arm! Incredible results without a diet, although for the last couple of weeks I have used his food plan (never once being hungry or feeling massively deprived). I have just signed up for the next six weeks and look forward to weight loss and more inches off with a further increase in flexibility and muscle tone. Although my results speak for themselves there are also the results that don’t show on the outside, the increase in confidence and self-belief, the sense of achievement and feeling fitter and stronger in myself.

If you want to work out in a private gym, with coaching completely tailored to your needs and ability with a really nice bloke who instills self-belief and motivates without being pushy then Mitch is your trainer. 

I really cannot recommend him highly enough.

Great results!!!

posted 17 Apr 2017, 23:38 by Mitch Mitchell   [ updated 17 Apr 2017, 23:42 ]

I'm 51 years old, female, with a healthy weight, a balanced diet and an active work pattern but despite all of that, my energy levels had plummeted. Then, one day a friend suggested I find a personal trainer……..and I discovered Mitch.

 

I started to train with Mitch 2-3 times per week and I couldn't believe the amazing results after just 6 weeks!!!!!!

My energy levels have improved tremendously, I've lost weight (and I wasn't even trying), I've lost inches, I'm more flexible, stronger and I discovered that my muscles are toning up nicely thank you very much!!!!

The great thing is that Mitch closely monitors your heart rate and progress throughout the session so you don't “overdo it” while at the same time he really pushes you with lots of encouragement so that you improve each time…….and no sore muscles….wonderful.

 

The programme NEVER gets boring as Mitch changes it according to ability and progress so there are always new challenges and a great feeling of personal achievement.

 

 Also, very important from a woman's point of view, he is never inappropriate. He is always very respectful and professional. He also has a great sense of humour so we always have a laugh and the hour flies by.

 

To sum up: Great results!!!! Thanks Mitch.

An amazing week!

"My 74-year-old mother and I trained with Mitch every morning for a week whilst on holiday in Lanzarote and came home feeling fitter than either of us have been for years. Mitch pushes you hard but also takes the time to explain exercises. He also tailors training exactly to your needs and understands physical problems, drawing from his years of experience working with people. 

On top of that he's a really nice man - we couldn't recommend him more."
I remember all your exercises and have been doing many of them when I'm training by myself.

Thanks again for the amazing week

STILL GOING! STRONGER!

posted 31 Jan 2017, 14:55 by Mitch Mitchell   [ updated 31 Jan 2017, 14:57 ]

In 2008, after very debilitating breast cancer surgery and treatment, I began 
working out with Mitch once a week during the six months a year we’re on the island. My husband and I both credit much of my return to an active life to the careful, competent, fun and challenging training Mitch has been taking me through, and inspiring me to continue. 
Lately, after some weird sort of hip injury (don’t tell me it’s my age!), he creatively and immediately re-invented my training regimen. I am now practically without a limp, without pain. 

A VERY HAPPY 71 year old! Lucky me.

Thank you, Mitch.

A rewarding journey!

posted 4 Jan 2017, 04:25 by Mitch Mitchell



I started training with Mitch after reading his website and testimonials, I decided to make contact. 
From day one I have always found Mitch to be on time, gives you 100% of his attention and always correcting your form. His knowledge and love of the job shows in everything he does. He makes you feel comfortable and will motivate and push you. 
I'd recommend Mitch to anyone looking for a dedicated, motivated personal trainer who can make getting stronger and healthier a fun and rewarding journey. This guy has changed my life for the better and can not thank Mitch enough for this.
I work long hours and have a busy family life but squashing Mitch into my busy time schedule has made me a better and stronger person. 
I look forward to carrying on training with Mitch.

Tucking me under your motivational wing!

posted 20 Dec 2016, 23:41 by Mitch Mitchell   [ updated 21 Dec 2016, 00:06 ]


I started training with Mitch 4 months ago. I work from home in a pressured role, you never have the time for exercise but you have to make the time. It’s more important for my health though as I was born with a muscle wasting condition called Muscular Dystrophy. Not all the muscles are affected so it’s really important I keep the good muscle as strong as possible for as long as possible. Mitch took the time to read up on the condition and has been so incredibly understanding working together to test out what I can and can’t do and making adaptions along the way until we had a cracking programme to follow. He does come up with new ideas every now and again, may or may not work, but I love the fact he looks for these new angles.

Mitch is very motivational, I want to achieve for him just as much as for myself. I’ve made so much progress, in my own limiting way, even if I can only push for an extra minute on the bike or go for a couple of extra weight presses Mitch is there to encourage me and tell me I can do it! I’m really excited about the results so far both in my fitness and in my jeans! You only have to see just a little bit of improvement and it encourages you to keep going.

No matter where your starting point is, I can’t recommend Mitch enough for his expertise, motivation, patience and he also happens to be a really great guy as well J. Thanks Mitch very much.

Rocking up towards 70! You´re never too old to be young!

posted 1 Dec 2016, 13:33 by Mitch Mitchell

Image result for lanzarote in winterFor the past four years I have been working with Mitch during the winter months. I am now rocking up towards 70 and have never been fitter in my life. It isn't the type of fitness you see in youngsters, but for me it is just right. 
When I started, I was clocked by the doctor as being obese and had difficulty walking any distance or bending...well a whole host of issues really including getting up from a settee. By slowly losing weight which has been helped by my increased mobility, I recently found that I was back in a size 14. I look about ten years younger..I haven't ended up with bingo wings or wrinkles through dieting too quickly - I just eat sensibly and walk more as well as my gym sessions with Mitch each week. Other benefits have been coming off a skip of medication and vastly improved mobility and, most importantly, I feel younger too!
Thanks Mitch!

The best way to get something done is to begin!

posted 24 Aug 2016, 02:05 by Mitch Mitchell   [ updated 24 Aug 2016, 02:17 ]

At the end of July my sister and I signed up to Mitch's six week programme. Over the past couple of years we had both put on weight and basically let ourselves go. The most exercise I had done was walk to and from the car and my sister was not much better. We both decided that something had to be done.


Mitch designed a specific exercise plan for us tailored to our needs and one that would help us achieve our goals along with a meal plan with plenty of suggestions of what sort of foods we should eat.


We trained for three one hour sessions per week. Two hours with Mitch where he trained us to build up muscle and improve our stamina. We did a lot of cardio and ab work and some self defense. Then on the last session of the week we had Shona, she helped us to improve our flexibility and to target specific areas of our bodies that we wanted to work on. We also got to spend the last 20 minutes or so working out in the pool which was thoroughly refreshing and definitely needed after an intense session in the summer heat.Thanks to Mitch and Shona we spent the last six weeks losing kilos and inches, improving our bodies and our fitness and we certainly couldn't be more grateful.


Thank you both.

The change I needed!

posted 3 Jun 2016, 23:26 by Mitch Mitchell

I started training with Mitch 6 weeks ago. After a long a long run of no exercise and over indulging I needed to make a change. Mitch designed a programme tailored to me. 

I am a mother of two and am busy working full time in a high pressured job. I finish work and Mitch is there giving me the motivation I need to get myself into shape.

I have now started my second 6 week programme and Mitch is pushing me even harder. I am looking forward to seeing the results, just in time for the summer. I couldn't recommend Mitch enough!!

Motivation needed!

posted 20 Mar 2016, 04:56 by Mitch Mitchell

I started working out with Mitch six weeks ago. I had got myself in a rut where I was eating and
drinking an unhealthy diet. I was sluggish and putting on weight. I knew I had to do something but just didn't have the motivation. I avoided looking at myself in the mirror as I hated what I saw. I have always been an active person but I just couldn't be bothered. So I made the call and signed up with Mitch. I have to say I am very happy with the results so far. In the first 4 weeks I lost 11 inches in total and 3 kilos. He is guiding me with a diet plan and created a workout regime specifically for me. Some days I have to really drag myself to go, as after a full day at work and all the normal chores waiting for me at home it is hard to muster up the energy, but I always do and always leave feeling revitalized. He really gives me the motivation and pushes me through. The results so far say it all. I still have a long way to go but I now believe with Mitch's
 help I can do it.
