"The massage I received at ESPH was incredible, just what my aching muscles needed!"

After months of hard training and a successful half marathon I decided to treat myself with a sports massage. The massage I received at Esph was incredible, just what my aching muscles needed! The masseuse asked about my sporting history and after the massage recommended areas of tension to work on. The environment was professional and friendly and I will definitely return again.

"Leading up to and after my knee surgery I used the physios at ESPH and they are just fantastic."

I’ve been going to ESPH for about 5 years now and I’m still amazed by how well run it is. I use the gym about four times a week and the physio and Pilates services. Leading up to and after my knee surgery I used the physios at ESPH and they are just fantastic. Their expert advice really makes you feel comfortable re-conditioning yourself back to shape. **THIS IS NOT A GYM FOR ‘BROS’** – seriously, if you’re into grunting, screaming and three hour ‘super sessions’ stay away and don’t ruin it for the rest of us. Aside from the training staff, the office staff are also extremely efficient and always give great service. They know you by name and are more than happy to help you out at any time. The only cons are that they don’t have any barbells at the moment however plans are underway to change this. The changing rooms and showers are worth the price alone and there are always clean towels free for you to use. The Pilates studio looks like some kind of medieval torture chamber but it’s quite safe and fantastic to use. The instructors are all very knowledgable and eager to help you workout in a safe and efficient manner. This is a fantastic gym that just lets you get on and do your workout without sweaty screaming blokes hogging the weights and machines while they push out another hernia.

"Without exception, the overall service is first class."

I’ve used a wide range of ESPH’s services over the years, everything from physio to massages to fix a back problem to the gym and the 1-on-1 pilates sessions. Without exception, the overall service is first class. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and most importantly what they do has worked for me. State of the art gym and pilates machines help enormously in avoiding injury and making the work out sessions more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

"I am well on the way of achieving my weight loss and fitness targets and would be happy to recommend ESPH to friends, family and work colleagues."

I became a member of ESPH in January 2011 for the purpose of losing weight and improving my overall levels of fitness and health. I have been very impressed with the care, commitment and friendly nature of all the staff. The instructors are very knowledgeable and highly skilled about all health, fitness and exercising matters. The ESPH facilities are well maintained, clean and provide an extensive range of equipment and spaces to exercise. The range and variety of classes available are very impressive which allows you pick the best approach you wish to take to maintain your commitment to visiting the gym, the class I enjoy the most is ‘box fit’ . The induction session is very detailed and is used to establish your personalised programme to support the best use of the gym and variety of classes. I am well on the way of achieving my weight loss and fitness targets and would be happy to recommend ESPH to friends, family and work colleagues.

"When I filled in the membership form there was a box that said ‘duration of membership’ and I wrote ‘forever’ because I really can’t imagine anything worse than stopping."

My Secret to Feeling Fit & Fabulous at 40 something! 12 months ago when I became one of the participants in ESPH’s Exercise, Health & Wellbeing study run in conjunction with the UK Active Research institute & Greenwich University it was all about losing weight. Here I am a year down the line, feeling truly FIT & FABULOUS and yes, about 2 stone lighter…. BUT (and I know Alexei will be proud to hear me say this), the past year has been about so much more than just weight loss. Much as I hate to admit it, I am middle aged. It has crept up on me when I wasn’t looking; it seems like yesterday that I was rocking my 20’s, now suddenly I find myself looking down the barrel of my 45th birthday. The thing about middle age is that out of the blue your body starts to behave differently, muscles that used to stay toned as if by magic start to relax, you get back ache when you spend too long on your feet, your knees ache when you go up hill. As for running…. (especially after childbirth). Ha! Don’t even go there. BUT, much as I hate to sound evangelical about this, it IS possible to turn the clocks back without resorting to surgery or the latest fad diet, you just have to get off your butt and start exercising! 1.5 hours in the gym 3 times a week has, quite literally changed my life. I am leaner, fitter, stronger and happier in both mind and body. I’m the one dragging my kids off to the park and wanting to play ball with them (previously unheard of). I’m the one telling my friends we need to go out dancing like we used to do in our 20’s. I am quite honestly astounded by how much more energy I have got these days, and by the amount of muscle tone I have been able to establish. The great thing about this is that the better your muscle tone, the better your posture, the better your body supports itself and the less aches and pains you get! So where to go from here? Well I have reached my target weight and I’m now in size 10 trousers (I was delighted to be down to a size 12 six months ago, so frankly I’m almost speechless to be a size 10). I have – of course – joined ESPH as a member and my goal from here is to really focus on specific muscle groups and core strength, and to make sure I keep on setting myself new challenges so I don’t get lazy. When I filled in the membership form there was a box that said ‘duration of membership’ and I wrote ‘forever’ because I really can’t imagine anything worse than stopping. Being fit is a way of life for me now and I don’t ever want to get fat, lazy, or old again (I know for sure I can achieve at least 2 of the 3)!!!
