How Do We Do It?

What do we listen to?
We listen to what you have to say about what you want to do and how you think we can best help you do that. We ask the right questions such as what have you done before and what was good and bad about it? What foods do you like? Do you prefer to have fun when you’re training with a gamification approach or a firm structure?

How do we design an exercise plan
Though the plans are designed around you they are still very much based in evidence and technique to ensure you progress with your fitness and knowledge as quickly and as safely as possible.

How do we design a diet plan
Sometimes these are rigid plans that you stick to but much of the time they are a constantly evolving and flexible solution to your day to day needs. This is possible due to the regular contact you have with your trainer outside of the gym.

Though the plans are designed around you they are still very much based in evidence

How do we keep you accountable
When we meet in the gym you will be weighed, unless there is a valid reason not to. Your daily and weekly food intake is monitored and deviation from the agreed plan is discussed and solutions are found. We’re not here to shout at you but there may be a raised eyebrow by your personal trainer if the only reason is you were busy or a bit tired that day.

How do we support you
We are here for you. Weight loss is more complex than just eating less and moving more. If it was that simple everyone would do it. Your day and your life is an ever changing landscape. We are there through the ups and downs to keep you on a happy and successful track.

We get you results
If you work with us and you are honest, you will be successful. We will also teach you the skills and techniques such as self monitoring and appraisal to allow you to keep your weight and shape under control and in a place where you can be proud, happy and healthy.

Please use one of the many methods to reach out to us and you might just find the happiness, the shape, and the health you know you deserve.

Chris Murray


“Hi my name is Chris Murray. I have been Personal Training and helping people improve their health, fitness and lose weight for 15 years I consistently study the latest courses available and always look to improve my knowledge where I can. When working with a client I like to make sure people are firstly at ease in the gym and with what we are doing. Depending on the goals of the person I will put together a plan that will ensure the quickest possible result.

If you want results you have to be willing to train hard, I have found as long as I can fully explain why I want a client to do something, it is easy to get them to push past their limits. I train myself pretty hard so I like people to feel the same pain I do. “

    Incredibly knowledgeable, patient and effective Personal Training from Chris Murrat that focuses on mindset, nutrition and technique as much as lifting weights! And a lovely guy to boot. Highly recommended - one of the best PTs in Birmingham.

    I’ve been training with Daniel Grimes from Body Transformation for about 7 months now and I’ve lost about one stone since then. I feel so much stronger, healthier and in shape than ever before. He is an amazing trainer! I’ve learned quite a lot about training and nutrition from him and have finally found a routine that I can continue to work towards my end goals. Besides the actual in-person training, he keeps in touch between sessions with texts and emails to keep me motivated which is very encouraging. Daniel is really easy to talk to and fun to train with that you would never feel under pressure in his company as gym atmosphere can be quite intimidating for some people. Besides all that Daniel is truly an awesome person who genuinely cares about his clients. Anybody looking for a bespoke training in a friendly yet professional environment with great results I would highly recommend him.

    I worked with Bodytransformation during Lockdown on their online program. They showed me how to eat and exercise effectively, something i thought was straight forward but obviously not! I lost 2 stone (14kg) and i am pretty sure that if I hadn't have started the program woud have put more weight on! The guys are so professional and genuniely care about your result, highly reccomended!

  • If you're looking for bespoke, personable and professional training, Stuart is the guy for you. From nutritional advice, to adaptable work out plans, he offers all the support and advice you need to achieve your goals. After a back injury, with Stuart’s help a plan of rehabilitation was started, gradually increasing in intensity. Within a month I was completely cured and back to playing the sport I love. Stuart has a vast knowledge of the human body and is very professional and friendly in his approach. I would highly recommend body transformation.

    I’ve known Chris for 7 years in total now. I had a break from training for a few years when my children were young and work took over. I needed to get back to training. Chris is the ultimate professional and has always got the best out of me. He motivates and tailors a programme to help achieve individual goals. This includes exercise, lifestyle and a change in mind set. My body shape is changing again and I feel great! Importantly this is all done in a non-judgemental way and is fun!! I now have the confidence to go to the gym independently too. I can not recommend him and body transformation more highly

    I have been working with Stuart for just under 3 months. In that time , I have lost nearly 2 stone and have gotten back into a healthy routine. His knowledge of 'what works' really shows. He keeps me focused and his engaging personality makes it a pleasure to work out with him.
