Real People, Honest Opinions.


Angsuyan Fokouh

“I trained with Brandon for a period of 2 months. I had him on a one to one programme in witch he gave me the tools to built a life based on routine, consistency and one of my biggest problems, good sleep. Brandon is always around when needed and will always give you the best for you specific need. Before choosing Brandon as my personal trainer I followed him on IG and put into practice loads of his advises and loved them all. I would ask him questions and he would take the time and give me an honest and personalised answer. That is why I choose Brandon.”

Andras Juhasz

“Brandon is a great PT. He is motivating, knows what will work for you and has attention for detail. I trained with him because I wanted to improve my technique and be more confident with doing some exercises. He helped me achieve both. Brandon also gave some excellent nutrition tips. Our training sessions were good fun.”

Bree Van Zyl

“If you are looking for a personable personal trainer you have found him. Brandon really does care about you as an individual. Everyday he would not only enquire about my fitness but also my personal health as well. You're not only getting health advice but someone who will listen to you, no matter the time of day.

I took part in Brandon's online 4 week Christmas challenge as I was impressed with his enthusiasm for fitness and health on his personal Instagram and hoped the challenge would spur me on during one of the hardest months to keep your fitness goals in check. Which I am glad to say it did! 

I had also become stagnant in my workouts and burnt myself out with the same cardio and weights routines. Brandon worked out a new routine after talking through what I was comfortable to do and achieve within the week, which made me feel confident, the new routine would work.

Sadly I did get ill with the flu during the last week of the challenge, so couldn't push myself with the workouts. However, I did keep to the set nutrition goals and still lost weight during that time.

In the end Brandon helped me to keep track of my fitness goals and be held accountable for everything I did within the 4 weeks of the challenge. As an online client, I wasn't worried about messaging him at any time and getting feedback by sending videos was also very helpful. Thanks Brandon!”

Gemma Souden

“I first met Brandon that teached our spinning class! He was always motivating & friendly & would always have time to chat to u at the end with any fitness related questions. When I was looking for a PT I knew I wanted Brandon. Through our PT sessions Brandon gave me his 100% attention & pushed me out of my comfort zone & got me trying new things. I’ve learnt a lot from Brandon & I’m confident using free weights. I still use his training plan he gave today in my own training! Highly recommend... great guy!”

Will Cotterell

“Brandon has done an amazing job at helping me with my nutrition and training. He cares about what he does and is always available whenever I have any questions or concerns!”

Marcus Wright

“Before starting with Brandon, I was extremely self conscious and the gym was a very intimidating environment for me. Diets and nutrition used to discombobulate me and I was very poor at keeping hydrated. Being accountable to him with weekly check ins, not only am I more confident, I’m well hydrated, I’m loosing fat and gaining muscle with the definition I wanted.

After just 3 weeks I saw a huge difference giving me the motivation to carry on and see what I could achieve. Brandon’s there 24/7 to answer any questions and drives me to be my best with the respect to personal limits (carrying injuries) but high motivation to crack that comfort zone and reach full potential. Ever session is tailored to your needs showing his passion in not only what he does but helping individuals achieve their results. I now love going to the gym to work out.

Thank you Brandon for everything. Amazing guy, brilliant P.T and would highly recommend any one of his programs as a valuable investment to mind, body and overall well-being.”

Joey Ma

“Great man and helpful coach. Always encouraging, never giving up. Great process with him to have a healthier way of working out, diet and living.”

Matt Mortimer

“He's a great guy with lots of advice and support to get the best results for me as the client. He's a fantastic nutritionist and is always checking in on me with if he can help me any further with food or work outs. 

Before I started coming to the gym I never had the confidence to just pick up a weight in a gym as I always thought people would stare at me etc but actually working with Brandon he's helped me find the confidence to pick up a weight and do many different exercises I never thought I'd ever do (Thank you for that Brandon!). He's also a lovely guy and asks how my week has been etc but most importantly during every workout he customises it to suit me and will push me way past my comfort zones but with his motivation and drive he has helped me get closer to my goal of using all the equipment in Gymbox, CG and get to where I personally wanted to be as strength is a big part of my work and he's helped me strengthen up and has given me greater understanding of my body's nutritional needs.

Thank you for everything you've done/doing for me to get to where I want to be, couldn't of done this without you! I would 100% recommend Brandon to absolutely anybody who needs that extra push to achieve their Gym goals or just to find confidence in using the equipment or even for nutritional purposes!”

Roxanne Nejad

“Training with Brandon has really supported my confidence in the gym. It's a pretty intimidating place at first and Brandon has been very patient and adaptable to my personal goals around strength and confidence in the gym. 

It's not just about the workout either, he's supported with my (plant-based) nutritional goals and also my general knowledge on the biology of my body to help its performance. 

I'm not someone you would describe as being "into her fitness", I'm just someone who is trying to help their body do things it couldn't before, and Brandon has been a fantastic support through this journey and continues to be so.”

Elisha Wilson

Couldn't have asked for a better trainer! Really passionate about his clients and just a generally great guy. Highly recommend!

Ryn Zhan

“Brandon is an amazing P.T. He's very passionate in what he does and I find him very motivating as well!! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone who can encourage you to push your boundaries and is committed to help you every step of the way.”

Ayman Awan

“Absolutly Brilliant PT, Great Results, Probably the best PT in and around London, Thanks Brandon”

Maz  Foster

"Brandon at the Covent Garden Gym Box and it completely switched my mind-set on exercise and nutrition. Before I saw working out as a necessary evil and being mindful of my nutrition was focussed on calorie counting and not eating carbs. Now I exercise more than I ever have and actually want to fit in my training. I'm also eating more than I was before but am so much more aware and better educated when it comes to what I'm putting in my body. Plus I don't feel like I'm depriving myself so it's the best of both worlds. I saw the changes in my body and strength so quickly (3 weeks) and it was Brandon's expertise and tailored advice but, more importantly, his constant support and enthusiasm that's made the biggest difference. Really can't recommend Brandon highly enough!"

 

Chris Cox

"I used Brandon as my PT at Gym Box in Covent Garden. In our first session, Brandon sat down with me and we talked through my goals and how I might achieve them. He then designed a training and food plan for me to follow and I trained with him once a week, following the plan for the rest of the week. Brandon’s plan definitely gave me the results I was looking for and regular check ins and updates helped me stay motivated. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Brandon as a PT."

 

Elena Flondor

"I found Brandon by mistake on Facebook when I was searching for a gym to get in. After speaking and have a session with him I started my personal training with him, it's the first time when I've see someone so passionate about his job and so interested in helping others to achieve their goals. I didn’t expect that someone will give me motivation, even thought I’ve been trying to go to gym for one year now but I was lacking motivation. Now because of Brandon's help I get my full motivation and I started to love doing to the gym. Thank you! I highly recommend Brandon. He is the best!"

 

Hector Godoy

"Training with Brandon has been amazing. He constantly pushes me to reach my goals whilst keeping me motivated and offers great insight as to how to keep on track. I highly recommend training with him."

 

Valentina Catalano

"Recently started with Brandon, all I can say is... Best PT ever , he really help me a lot, for me was a struggle in the last few years even trying to put my mind in starting to get healthier, but with is support and all his programs just designed for myself, I already feel so much better only 1 month after. People around me started noticing the change, and now for the first time in a long time I am looking forward to my gym session. Really amazing Man!!! Thanks!! He is teaching me that every is possible."

 

Eloise Emley

"Awesome PT! Brandon has been so helpful in really teaching me what I need to be doing, both in terms of my personal goals and protecting/preventing my recurring injuries. Lovely guy, really personable and attentive. Would recommend!"

Elaine Floyer

"I trained with Brandon while I was visiting London from San Francisco.
He was very responsive to my training goals and helped me achieve them in a short period of time. My goal was overall muscle toning. He has a great acumen about what was required of me. He is very knowledgeable and is passionate about training and fitness and it shines through. I loved training with him. 
Thank you Brandon!"

 

Ben Storey

Sarah Kolb

"I started training with Brandon as part of my late-stage knee injury rehabilitation programme (I'm a professional dancer) in order to build more explosive strength and to even out muscle mass and strength in my body again after a long period of inactivity and I couldn't be more happy with my results! Not only did I achieve what I had set out for myself with Brandon's knowledge and encouragement in less than 12 weeks - the muscle mass in my legs is perfectly symmetrical after 10 weeks of training -, I also and much more importantly rediscovered my love for movement and physical exercise and newly discovered a love for weightlifting! 
Brandon had me confidently using weights and machines with a focus on proper form and safety in no time - any woman will know that this can be an intimidating task - and has been nothing but positive, encouraging and supportive since our very first trial session. He is clearly extraordinarily passionate about his profession and deeply cares about his clients' wishes, goals and progress. I always feel comfortable approaching him with any questions and he always takes the time to answer with as much knowledge and consideration as possible.
This is my first experience with personal training, and I can confirm that it absolutely is a valuable investment in one's health, fitness and well-being. Training with Brandon is absolutely the right thing for anybody looking to improve their fitness and/or physique as well as their body confidence and quality of life."

Rachel Sheppard

"I started with Brandon about a year ago. After speaking to him about my goals & what I would like to achieve I came away feeling I could reach them. I didn’t have much confidence in myself & I always overthink things, this has all changed. He has shown me a verity of exercises I can do in the gym & if I didn’t get it first time, he would show me again & again until I did. I find it hard to maintain my weight but since following a nutrition plan that is specified to my needs I haven’t lost anything, I have gained which is a big thing for me. Nothing is ever to much trouble, I couldn’t of got this far with out all his constant help. Even though I don’t work with Brandon now he has moved to London he’s still there for me, always giving me advise & checking on my progress."

 

Jamie King

"Brandon is a great PT, He helped me achieve my goals and was always there to motivate me this was at the gym and over the phone. I would highly recommend him."

 

Alex Hepburn

"Had Brandon as an online coach for a while now. His enthusiasm and energy and great programs keep me motivated and to keep striving for bigger and better goals. Couldn’t recommend him enough for anyone who is looking to gain strength, weight loss, or just as a motivational figure."

 

Sarah Lacy-Smith

"I went to Brandon as I really enjoyed his classes and wanted to get stronger, but didn’t know where to start with weights training. Within a few sessions he has got me confidently using barbells, dumbbells and the weights machines as well as equipping me with routines for me to do by myself. It was brilliant to be trained by someone who was so knowledgeable and passionate about what he does!"

 

Scott Jolly

"I could not be happier with my results with Brandon, since our initial chat he was clear about his intentions and how he treats his clients and this did not disappoint. 

His focus, dedication and drive towards me reaching my goals has been second to none. I am able to follow a carefully developed training program, and meeting my nutrition goals with ease. Brandon is always there to guide and support me whether it is training or any nutrition questions. There is no question about Brandon's outstanding coaching methods and I could not be happier with the results.

If you're looking for someone to push you every step of the way, challenge you and offer you all of the guidance you need then Brandon is your man. A credit to the industry! Thank you for all of your hard work whipping me into shape!"

 

Craig Iremonger

"From day one Brandon has given me 100% dedication. Every session I’m learning new things, pushing my strength and confidence further. Brandon is not just a PT. He’s a life Coach. Motivate and Inspire #TeamBH"

 

 Sophie Fuller

"I started my fitness journey in a very unconventional way. I am on the road to recovery from an eating disorder and was absolutely petrified about setting foot in a gym again. I had no confidence, no self esteem and for me was a huge leap out of my comfort Zone
I first approached Brandon and was totally honest about my recovery and areas which I really struggled with (food) and unlike other trainers, he was more than happy to help me.

Whilst I'm very early on in my journey I can't thank him enough. He's so understanding when I don't want to weigh myself, or when I'm too tired to give 100%, yet he's still pushing me in the gym, which is helping my confidence both in and out of the gym.There's days where I feel like I can't push myself any further and that it would be easier to give up yet with Brandon's support I somehow manage to get there and hit weights I never thought I'd be able to. 
I've been open and honest about my Challenges with food and Brandon's given me so much time and helped me build a plan around the foods I feel comfortable eating. And it's working! 2 months in and there are positive changes. 

All that's great, but the thing that sets Brandon apart is his constant support, whether than be at 6am or 10pm, he's always there."

 

Silvia & Alberto

"This is our first experience with a personal trainer and could not be better. Training with Brandon is a pleasure; he has always a smile for us. 

The first time we met, we were a bit worried as people say that PT are really expensive.... nothing, however, could be further from the truth.
We are training 2 days a week (1.5h each day) with him. He prepared a tailored program for the both of us and takes measurements of our body every week. However, the most important thing is the support he provides 24/7.

It’s amazing the results we are getting following his training programme and the diet dairy. We went to the gym looking for something we thought impossible but we will achieve it because of him. 

Thank you very much Brandon."

 

Kelly Monahan

“I first got to meet Brandon through attending and enjoying his spin & fat burn classes at the gym, after a couple of months and meeting a gym buddy we both felt we had come to a stand still with our goals an needed some direction - so we approached him for some PT sessions to train together.
Before training with Brandon I would never have felt comfortable or confident to use the weights and machinery I was just sticking to loads of fitness classes and very restrictive dieting. PT sessions are always fun an testing but outside of the gym he is always checking in with us making sure we are ok an motivated, an providing advice when we need it.
After nearly 3 months of enjoyable training sessions we are both also training 2-3days a week on our own following the workout plan he has set for us.  We are both completely re-educated towards nutrition - I was fixated on loosing weight an he has made me realise this was not the answer an I have actually gained a few pounds, (which was my biggest fear) but my body shape has changed an I'm much more toned.
I highly recommend personal training with Brandon he is devoted and cares about helping his clients to achieve their goals - thank you Brandon.”

 

Ben Donkor

“Let me tel you why Brandon is the best personal trainer you'll ever work with: I've worked with so many personal trainers in my life, and none of them worked for me - no follow-ups, no drive, no real interest in what my goals were, and it felt very transactional, just there for the money but not for me. 
Then I met Brandon. Brandon not only changed my perception of having a personal trainer, but he also showed me what a personal trainer should be like: he's attentive, encouraging, he checks in regularly to see how my fitness journey is going because he genuinely cares, and he knows that it's not just about dumbbells and free weights - he knows that fitness covers nutrition too, and he's helped me so much with it too. Despite my busy work schedule, he's given me the motivation to keep going, to be better than the last time he saw me, to eat and live healthier, and to reach my fitness goals. I'm now at a point where I honestly crave my next sessions with him, and I looking forward to hitting the gym as often as I possibly can - something I never felt before I met Brandon. If you're still looking for the ultimate personal trainer, stop looking - you've just found him.”

 

Elthon Albuquerque 

"It’s been a pleasure to be training with someone so passionate about what he does. Even though we have only been training for a few months I am enjoying every session. Brandon not only motivates me to make it through each session he does it in a way that I really look forward to the next one. He has also provided useful advice for making changes to my lifestyle, which has helped contribute to improving my fitness levels.                                                                                                 

Another plus is that you can feel that he really cares about his clients, with regular follow-ups and check-ins (he's not the kind of PT you only hear from on your appointment slot).                                                                                                   

I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a PT, Brandon will help you achieve your goals."

 

Brooke Helmore

"I'd been going to the gym for a couple of months before doing any PT sessions with Brandon - I was losing weight on my own but mainly by consuming very little calories a day, & going to as many classes as I could! I loved the way Brandon taught his classes (& still attend the weight-training & spin classes), but I realised that this wasn't the healthiest/best way for me to achieve my goals of losing a little weight & building muscle...so this is when I turned to Brandon for PT sessions. 
Over the past few months he has given me an education in nutrition, & has made me feel confident at using the weights section at the gym; this was a very big hurdle as I felt too intimidated to step anywhere near the machines or weights due to being female, but I now confidently workout in this area a few times a week using a training programme Brandon specifically wrote for me & exercises he has taught me in the PT sessions. He also continuously checks in with me and gives motivation outside of sessions, & always makes himself available to answer my questions & give advise on all things health & fitness. 
Since I have started working with Brandon I have noticed, I have heaps more energy, I feel much healthier, & my body shape has changed for the better. 
I would 100% recommend Brandon as a personal trainer, & I know that we will have many more PT sessions together!
Thank you for all your help, advice & motivation Brandon!"

 

Georgina Frances Godo

"Brandon is an amazing personal trainer! Every week is varied which means the sessions are never boring, learnt so much already and not just about training but lifestyle choices as well, so pleased to have met him, would definitely recommend!"

 

Jozef Kocian

"I've started training with Brandon around 7 months ago and I can say I'm glad I did so. Brandon helped me to understand how my body works, always pushes me one step further and motivates me to go forward and beyond. 

Great trainer, motivator and person!"

 

Gemma Souden

"I first met Brandon with him teaching spin class. Not only was Brandon welcoming & friendly but his class was really motivating. I soon only booked on his spin class... So when looking to do some PT sessions I went straight to Brandon. He's been motivating, listens to me & very patient & detailed in showing me training movements. 
When I'm unsure about doing weight lifting movement he assures me & watches me so I don't hurt myself. 
He's given me confidence in free weight training but also in believing in myself. Outside PT sessions he thought me to listen to my body & not to beat myself up when feeling down about myself. Nothing but amazing supporter in pushing me to achieve my goals! Look forward to future working out together!"

 

Keren Hack

"Brandon is very in tune with the overall process of changing your lifestyle not just achieving your short term goals. He definitely didn't accept no for an answer but was happy to adapt to my limitations! He really helped me understand more of what would work for me and I saw results particularly in my attitude to training!"

 

Kim Leigh

"I have been training with Brandon for over a year now and it is the best thing I have ever done. Each session is challenging and I never thought I would feel comfortable in the free weights section but I am. Brandon is motivating and supportive, even to the extent of having pictures of my food each day. I would definitely recommend him as a trainer to anyone!"

 

Robert Wienesen

"Started my PT at the end of summer last year and haven't looked back. He is realistic and a good motivator and has kept me coming back over the past months (including restarting a food diary). The exercises are tailored to my level and it's always a good workout gaining confidence with the free weights and other equipment in the gym. Highly recommended."

 

 Lucy Palette

"I've only recently started training with Brandon but already noticing big changes. He always pushes me to my limit and makes me keep going when I want to stop! Ive learnt so much, and each session we always try new things. Having a training plan to work on my own has been so helpful. I would definitely recommend him."

Sarah Allman

"I've been training with Brandon since January and results came quickly and consistently. I've noticed massive changes in my physique, mental state and overall wellbeing. Brandon pushes you to be your absolute best every time. It's pretty clear that he really enjoys what he does and that means that going to the gym isn't something I have to force myself to do!"

 

Michaela Beech

"I have had experience of a few personal trainers since taking up a healthier lifestyle and Brandon is by far the most motivating. He is constantly pushing me to do better and is always there to answer any questions about my training or diet! Brandon is realistic when it comes to diet, nutrition and exercise. He encourages you to ensure you live a balanced lifestyle but also makes sure you will see the results you want. He is patient and dedicated in every aspect of what he does. We have a laugh when we train and I believe that is key..... Training for me is not a chore now but something I want to do and enjoy doing! Thanks Brandon."

 

Lesley Reeve

"Brandon’s customer engagement is faultless and he is a natural motivator and coach. He supports and adds to my addiction to never give up. He loves what he does and he emanates that. During my postoperative care from a surgical procedure, I was asked to take it easy and not train for 6 months. Being an amateur runner, who has never had a rest period and an active parent, I found that difficult to adhere to, I needed to keep fit and active. Brandon was recommended to me as someone who would not be deterred with the surgery. We have planned and achieved 2 goals since my journey began in March 2016. (1) Strength, recovery and small weight loss in 9 weeks (2) More strength and more definition in a further 7 weeks and now my next goal (3) More muscle and to get ready for competitions again. Going beyond just running, I am ready to take on Triathlons. I believe with his help, I will smash it!!"

Omar Ehsan

"Brandon has the patience, knowledge and discipline to take my fitness to the next level. I'm so impressed with his fitness level."

 

Katherine Keeber

"Brandon started training me back in August after I decided to swap Personal Trainers and I honestly can say I have never been happier. Brandon is a natural born motivator and pushes me to be the best that I can, His routines vary each week and I always look forward to each session, He does not give up on me. When I have said in the past I cant, he helps me rise above and doesn't take no for an answer, He has a true passion for personal training. Brandon has helped me with not only fitness but he has also transformed my nutrition, he goes into detail with my foods, and guides me for what I can and cant eat and gives me guidance, suggestions and most importantly the support I need, and is happy to go shopping with you to help you reach your potential further, I have seen amazing results already, and have dropped 2 sizes in the space of a few months. I am excited to see more results with Brandon's training. Swapping Trainers to Brandon has truly been the best thing I have ever done. Brandon puts 110% into his clients and I feel like without Brandon I wouldn't have been able to have reached the point I am now. Brandon has transformed my life and I feel even more confident every week, and would recommend Brandon to all of my friends. Thanks Brandon."

 

Mark Brackstone

"Brandon is a first class personal trainer who I couldn't recommend enough. We have been working together now for just over 3 months and I can certainly see and feel the difference! With Brandon's help I have lost weight and am slowly but surely toning up thanks to his tailored workout plans, great nutrition knowledge and very positive attitude he is always at the end of the phone offering help and encouragement so whatever your goal as long as you're dedicated, committed and prepared to put in the work you can't go wrong!!"

 

Jenna Nash

"I was never one to get to excited about going to the gym. But since signing up for personal training sessions with Brandon I feel so much more enthused about the gym. I'm feeling healthier and started to notice results, in how I feel and look, a lot sooner than I thought I would. I would recommend Brandon to anyone wanting to get into shape, he helps you to make the most of the time you spend in the gym, can assist with diet plans and makes exercise fun!!"

 

Mikala Nash

"I have struggled with my weight since I went to university, my studying had me working shifts causing an irregular eating pattern and my weight has fluctuated ever since. 5 years ago I stopped smoking and I piled weight on despite dieting and exercising. Over the years I would join the gym and lose some weight but, like a lot of people, I would get bored and stop going even though I was still paying for it and then finally quit even though I hadn't reached my goal weight.
This is the first time I have ever used a personal trainer at the gym and it's the best decision I have ever made! Brandon is amazing; he has kept me motivated, our training sessions are always varied and he makes me push myself further than I would just training on my own. I have finally got back down to a size 12, which is the size I was when I started university 10 years ago and I am still loosing weight, which wouldn't have been possible without his help and support."

 

Daithi O'Brien

"I've been active and sporty my whole life, I've worked and competed as a kayaker, tried various training programs over the last ten years and recently started racing triathlons. I've been to numerous gyms and tried personal trainers but never felt impressed. After tearing my rotator cuff I knew I needed professional help to get my fitness and strength back but was reluctant to pay a personal trainer. I chose Brandon because Unlike most trainers he is a very successful and seasoned athlete (despite being young!) more than just going through the motions you learn on a PT course Brandon has the knowledge and experience to help you achieve your goals. I had high expectations going into these sessions but I've been blown away by how good he is. By really tailoring the sessions to my needs he's helped me make huge gains in strength that has had a great impact on my kayaking. And then despite having no triathlon experience he was able to use his understanding of the body to help improve my triathlon race times. The sessions have been tough and he really pushes you out of your comfort zone but that's where the magic happens! I cannot recommend him enough!"

 

Mark Reading

"I first started working out a few months before seeing Brandon and managed to lose weight but this was from doing endless cardio as well as lifting weights but not really knowing what I was doing. I'd got to the point where I wanted to get some sort of muscle and definition but had no idea how to achieve it. I'd been thinking about a pt for a while and am so glad I finally decided to do it. Brandon gave me a workout plan to follow and explained all the exercises as half of them I pretty much had no clue. My form was awful on some exercises and he got me lifting less but with the correct form which I now understand the importance of. I am now lifting weights which I never thought I would be in a million years and that's thanks to him pushing me and me giving me the confidence that I can do it, which makes me want to continue to achieve more.
The other thing which he has a been a huge help with is my diet as i was continuing to lose weight when I didn't want to anymore. On top of this I was starting to feel tired and run down. I now understand food so much more and realise you need to put the food in to your body in order to grow so I'm now eating so much more than I was but the correct foods too. 
I've never done weights at the gym prior to starting this and now realise what I've been missing out on. I look forward to training each day and strive to increase what I can lift (with correct form of course). I feel so much better in myself and my lifestyle has completely changed compared to 4 or 5 months ago."
