Well where do I start?? Martin has been my PT since I was 16 and in all fairness I hated the gym and In all honesty I still do, but back then I had nothing to work towards and giving me a routine to follow was like putting boiled tea in a chocolate tea pot (pointless), I just enjoyed meeting up for chats - pretty expensive counselling session I'm sure you'd agree haha.

For those interested I finished my fitness test 45 minutes ago and smashed it.
