I looked for a personal trainer who would help me regain my confidence to train after breaking my leg 2 years ago. I saw Mike online and after speaking to him, sharing my concerns and goals, his approach seemed perfect to me. Having met Mike at training studio I was convinced he could help me improve my fitness and my confidence to exercise. His approach, support and help has exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier with the results so far.

I am one of those people who has never been sporty or into fitness. Going to a regular gym never worked for me as I didn’t really know what I was doing, didn’t get the results I wanted and I felt intimidated by all the people there.
Working with Mike for the last 5 months has been perfect for me. I’ve lost 10cm off my waist and my body fat % has dropped from 30 to 23. Getting in shape was the goal when I started, but now I’m enjoying training, pushing myself to lift heavy weights, have improved balance and feel so much better in myself.
Could not recommend this place enough.

I found Mike when looking for personal trainers in Bournemouth. I contacted all those that I felt applicable, but Mike's community/family atmosphere appealed to me. I spoke with other trainers, but Mike was the only one I felt was knowledgeable about problems and injuries. It was how well Mike articulated his passion, understanding and care that set him apart. It was instantly apparent that he understands people, with an emotional intelligence as well as an unbeatable knowledge. It’s not all about muscles and false body images with Mike. You engaged with me as a person. Showed care and consideration, thank you Mike.

I found Mike to help me prepare for the Obstacle Course World Championships. He is a real specialist in movement who understands the human body in a way that blows my mind at times. He's drastically improved my strength, balance, co-ordination and physique. The training is so personal and specific, but what really sets Mike apart is the support he gives throughout no matter what, inside and outside of your sessions. No trainer compares!

I was sold after one trial session, my wife had joined a while before me and I could see how much it had benefited her. I was always put off by the idea of normal gyms and I was worried that personal training would be too much given that I have never done anything like this before. After the first training session I loved it and have every session since.

Me and my housemate have been training with Mike for just over 3 months now and now can’t imagine training with anyone else! Not only has he helped us lose 13% body fat between us, he has also helped with problems with my knee that have caused me anxiety when it comes to exercising for years. Mike is always happy to listen and really knows his stuff. Along with being super friendly and motivating without the feared personal trainer style of shouting commands at you. Couldn’t recommend Mike enough.

I've been training with Mike for over a year and can't praise his skills enough, for a long time I was suffering from back pain and within a few months he got me into shape and taught me some valuable tricks to stop my back issues returning. There is not much he doesn't know regarding fitness and health, he is also a genuinely great guy, would thoroughly recommend him and Physical Preparation Westbourne to anyone wanting to get fit or simply get in the right way with their health.

The reason I chose to train with Mike over others was because my confidence was really low when I started and Mike never made me feel like I needed to be embarrassed of where I was starting from. I really appreciate everything Mike helped me achieve with my training.

I wanted a personal trainer rather than to join a gym, a friend recommended Mike after my spinal surgery, so it seemed like a really good place to start. Then when we met I could tell Mike was passionate about what he does and knew exactly what he was talking about. Friends who are personal trainers have offered me mates rates but nothing compares to the results I have experienced with Mike, you can find cheaper, but you won't find better!

Mike helped massively when I had problems with back pain, he knows his stuff and the best thing is that he takes the time to make sure you know it as well! Thanks to that the back pain very rarely returns, but if and when it does I know what to do to fix it!
