Cynthia Miller dropped two dress sizes in a matter of months with CR  Performance, Birmingham
I’ve worked with personal trainers before and Chris Murray is, hands down, the best. Chris genuinely cares about your results and is always patient, encouraging, extremely knowledgable and utterly down to earth. In the few months I’ve worked with him, he’s helped me lose weight (I’ve dropped two dress sizes having struggled with my weight for years) and more importantly has completely changed the way I see nutrition and training in general. If you’re serious about being healthier, working with Chris is the best decision you’ll make.”

Les O'Brien's blood pressure and arthritis improved with our PT program
“I am 54 years old and I started going to the gym last year because no exercise for the last 25 yrs, high blood pressure, bad back and arthritis in my knees something need to be done then I meet Chris told him I was a challenge. It took a few months for muscles to start working again and the correct ones to work for the right reason, lot of pains and aches but finally things started to improve. I then started to loss weight which then started to give me confidence in myself but also over time my health started to improved, blood pressure has come down, don’t take my inhalers any more, back pain gone and I am not getting any pains in my knees from the arthritis. I am feeling really great and as I continue with Chris I know things will continue to improve and my weight will continue to come off. So if you are thinking of starting Chris is absolutely brilliant, very supportive and I could not have done it with out him..

Zana Dauksaite lost weight with CR Performance
“I thought about training for a while and thought it might be good for me. I was already ok with going to the gym and my diet wasn’t too bad. I put it off for a while and a couple of my friends had training with Stuart. I procrastinated for a little bit and eventually got round to starting. The training was good and the diet info was helpful but the changes didn’t happen right away. I was already in ok shape so it was a bit of a struggle to do the level of exercise and diet I needed to for changes to start happening. Having Stuart continually nudging me to get to the gym and sending across my food diary every day helped to keep me on track to get me into the best shape I’ve been in for a long time. We also went through exercises and training plans I just wouldn’t have known about or been able to do without properly being shown how.”

    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.

    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.

The guys are so professional and genuniely care about your result, highly reccomended!

    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
