What our clients say

So, I came to Carlos after having my second child and not being able to shift the last bit of weight as timely as I wanted to… GREATEST DECISION EVERRR! Carlos is an amazing trainer… kind, personable, patient. He trains you like a beast but understands that your best can be different each day. I love the fact that he is flexible with his training regime and doesn’t stick rigidly to a pre-planned work out. He is also very helpful with nutritional advice and doesn’t mind you bombarding his phone with your meals! He’s an all-round good guy, can’t recommend him enough, but don’t take my word for it… If you want to look after yourself by way of keeping fit, give Carlos a go… he even gives you a free taster session!!

I’m so happy to have discovered The Carlos Method this year. I’ve dabbled a bit with other trainers and gyms/classes in the past, but this is the best service I’ve found by far. Carlos is a brilliant trainer and clearly so dedicated to what he does. It’s a very welcoming environment and the 30-minute format works well in terms of intensity + time effectiveness. Carlos also always ensures to tailor everything to my needs (and remembers my strengths & weaknesses so I feel in safe hands). Before/after your sessions you are also allowed to use the gym facilities to do additional cardio etc. which makes it super value for money. I would highly recommend to people of all ages and abilities.

My teenage son has been going to Carlos regularly over the last couple of years. Carlos has a great understanding of what is needed to get fit and stay motivated and he delivers his sessions with energy and kindness. Such a great place – I highly recommend!
