"Upon realisation that I had let things slip in a big way, to a weight which was borderline obese, the severity of my non-existent training really did hit home. All my life I had played rugby at district level and always being a starting player, yet having taken a year and a half away from sport I gained roughly 3 stone. I began training on my own, using the knowledge gained from on-tracks with Craig to start cutting away the years of excess weight." read more...

"We've be attending Craig's classes for the past year now at Esporta and now at No.9 and have seen big improvements in our overall fitness. Not only can Craig push you to your limit he will make it enjoyable at the same time." read more...


Catrin Walters ,27, Bridgend

"I recently completed 10 x 1 hour personal training sessions with Craig Harper. I had been an occasional, often half-hearted gym-goer for a few years but always knew I wasn’t pushing myself anywhere near enough. I always felt that personal training was a luxury but it soon became clear that having one was really making a big difference in a relatively short space of time." read more...


Claire Price, 38, Bridgend
"I started personal training with Craig in April when my little boy was 7 months old. My goal was to regain my fitness levels after childbirth and to finish the 5k race for life - in any way I could!! After 4 months of training with Craig I not only finished the race I ran it in 42 minutes, something I could never have done without the motivation, support and encouragement I got from Craig." read more...

Chris Tough, 39, Bridgend

"After joining the gym I was a bit wary of having a personal trainer especially as I felt so unfit and lacked confidence, after a couple of weeks training by myself I decided to bite the bullet and booked a personal trainer, after a few training sessions I couldn't believe the difference in what you could achieve and how much further I was able to push myself."  read more...


Mark Hitchcock, 56, Bridgend
August 2010

"I found myself training on a regular basis but wasn’t seeing the benefits. At that point my motivation slipped and my passion for training began to fade into the background. I had mentioned I was looking for personal training sessions and this was when I met Craig. Craig reviewed my current routine and went straight to heart of the problem. read more...

"I remember the first time I really noticed Craig in the gym - he was giving personal training and his client was really working hard. I made some comment along the lines of 'Poor woman' and was impressed when he replied 'she's fine doing that'. This was said with no flippancy and I got a strong impression that Craig really did know exactly how to assess clients state of fitness and work with them to help them realise their full potential." read more...

I would summarize Craig as: 

Professional, approachable: Always friendly and cheerful, willing to answer questions, repeat techniques to aid understanding, available to text / call for advice when needed.

Supportive: Always positive about what you have achieved, even if it hasn’t been as successful as you had hoped. He doesn’t shout or tell you off for having the odd chocolate bar!

Each and every class has been different and Craig endeavours to mix it up and keep it fresh. Each week is thoroughly well planned and it is clear, with so many regular attendees at 6.30 am week in week out that I am not the only one who appreciates the ‘team’ ethos and atmosphere that Craig has created. read more...

As our training sessions continue, I feel that my confidence has grown dramatically and I am feeling a lot fitter in myself.  I have also taken on board Craig’s advice on healthy eating and as a result, in total have lost 21 pounds and toned up considerably.  What I like about our training sessions is that they are always different; I never know what we are going to do next.  read more...

"Once I got over the shock of seeing how small his arms were we very quickly clicked as a team and my objective of turning my upper body in to a dairy lee triangle began to take shape.  Craig understood what it was that I was looking to do from the start, and committed to helping me achieve my goals.  Whilst I will not say that it wasn’t hard work, it was a good laugh along the way too, as Craig has a way of making repetitious exercises fun, and making the gym a laugh." read more...

"I would just like to say it’s been a pleasure training with Craig. The progress I have made has been great, I’ve noticed a big difference in muscle mass and I also feel a lot more fitter and energetic in myself. My body fat has decreased significantly with my weight staying on average the same due to body building. Craig always set me targets and recorded my results so that I could see pen to paper how I was improving, especially on the rowing machine." read more...

"I have hugely enjoyed the sessions I have had with Craig. He starts each session with a welcoming smile and continues to be supportive and encouraging throughout. I have achieved my goals thanks to Craig. He is reliable, adaptable and extremely knowledgeable. Three words – please don’t leave!" read more...

"Craig helped me progress with my fitness in many ways and I thank him for that. I have had on going knee pain for quite some time now, and chatting with Craig gave me some confidence. He showed me a variety of stretches and foam roller work to help with my knee pain. Craig incorporated plenty of stretching into each session, our workouts were always fun, especially on the rower." read more...

"Training with Craig has been great. Craig was kind enough to give me a few taster sessions to ensure we created a good bond whilst boxing. Every session was varied working on a variety of boxing techniques and circuit’s which was most enjoyable. I always left the gym knowing I had worked out. Thanks, all the best." read more...

Camelia’s Story
"To put a long story short I had a huge accident where I fell off my horse. I had several brain haemorrhages to recover from, which had left me with a multitude of symptoms.  Only the right side of my body worked partially, whilst the left was pretty redundant.  When I got home with the help of a wheelchair I remained in bed for a year.  I could only stay awake up to two hours a day.  It took me two years to go out for the first time on my own half way down the road and back.  read more...

"Craig has been very professional throughout and provided me with some great personal training sessions. As a personal trainer he is very personable, approachable and reliable. I have lost just under a stone, seen positive improvements in my fitness and my arms have toned really really well. Each session always helped me take my mind off my work and study :-), thank you!" read more...

"Craig’s session really made me look forward to going to the gym, every session was different and I found out what I had been doing wrong all this time. Craig always found away to set targets for me to achieve, and when we repeated the fitness test it was great to see how I improved over six weeks. Not only that I lost a stone in weight and 3 inches on my waist. I am now also running the London 10k this year." read more...
