Lissa Ameur Chief Operating Officer at Oakminster Healthcare :
“Working in partnership with Burns Gym has had multiple benefits for Oakminster Healthcare. Not only do our residents love the exercises they conduct, but it promotes health, well-being and independence with our residents.
Participating in physical activities is such an important aspect of our resident’s day to day lives, especially for our Young Physically Disabled residents as it gradually gives them the courage to do more for themselves every day, therefore enhancing their independence.
Joseph and Anthony have maintained a high level of professionalism with our residents and staff, and they have done an absolutely fantastic job leading these exercise sessions with our residents, it has been a real privilege to be able to work with them.”
Megan Allan, Operations Director of Oakminster Healthcare, said:
“It’s had a huge impact on residents.
“They really look forward to it. I think some of the residents see them as being like their grandsons.
“Their approach is very dignified and very respectful. They go round everyone, it’s very one on one. We had one class where the residents asked for a double session, they were enjoying it so much. It was about 40 minutes.”
Louise Traynor, Lifestyle Co-Ordinator at Chester Park Care Home-
“The residents thoroughly enjoy their visits from Burns Gym, these regular work out sessions with Joseph and Anthony have become a huge hit within our home. Not only have the sessions encouraged the residents to participate in more physical activity, it has also increased their confidence and motivation.
In addition to the physical benefits of exercising with Burns Gym, the residents also love the social aspect of it as it encourages them to get together and have fun with each other. After the exercise session, Joseph and Anthony join us for a cuppa and a chat which is nice for everyone to socialise and relax after the work out”.
Eddie, one of the residents said the sessions make him ‘feel young again’ and another resident,
JR said: “Great exercises. I liked the boys, they made it easy for us.”
Personal Training Clients
I started with the boys at Burns Gym a week after the Cheltenham Festival which for me is 4 days of 10 hour drinking sessions, fry ups in the morning and Chinese or Kebabs at night and had ballooned to 14 stone, heaviest weight I have ever been and clearly overweight & unfit. As someone who used to be very fit & active (ex football player) I had been conscious of my weight for about 18 months. Clothes I had for a while were feeling tighter & some I just couldn’t wear and having to buy a size up in all new clothes just to feel remotely comfortable, fitness levels atrocious, diet even worse – I was simply kidding myself on. I booked a block of 12 weeks with Joe & Ants because I thought if I try to go to the gym myself I’ll chuck it after 4 weeks & just go back to the norm. What followed has changed my lifestyle completely. Firstly the training was tremendous, enjoyable, varied, weight training that improved my strength, physical condition and resulted in me losing around 1 and a half stone in 12 weeks.The nutrition plan and support away from the sessions was second to none. Always giving fresh ideas, recipes and the best way to look after your body away from the gym. This started to give me a daily structure and routine towards my eating and allowed me to cut out a lot of the junk I was filling my body with. What I would point out though is that in the 12 weeks I wasn’t living on chicken, rice and water. I had birthday parties, nights out, weekends away but the difference was my mind set. If I had one of the above events on I would ask the guys to put a circuit together for me that I could do in the house that would allow me to indulge a little bit more but also make sure I was maintaining fitness levels.I found this to be a huge help. The environment in the gym is really good, 2 knowledgeable, positive instructors providing you with the relevant training to achieve your goals. I couldn’t recommend Burns Gym highly enough and can’t wait to get started on the next 12 weeks
I have been training at Burns Gym in Glasgow now for 8 weeks and cannot say enough good things about it. The Studio is immaculate and its a joy every time i step through the door to train. I have completely transformed my shape. When I joined my main goal was to see my abs. I enjoy the training at Burns Gym so much that I will be taking another 4 week block out. I believe this is only the start of my journey with the boys at Burns Gym .I would definitely recommend Burns Gym to anyone as the support you get throughout your training is second to none.
Had the best experience with these two for 5 weeks. I lost more weight then my goal and they were always so easy to work with,talk to and they continually make you feel motivated in everything you do. Couldn’t recommend them enough !!!!! Can’t wait to go back for another package.
Had an amazing 5 weeks training with Joe and Tony! Me and my friend were doing two group sessions per week with them and the results I’ve seen have been outstanding despite actually being out getting steaming every single weekend of the training 😂.
The boys helped me push myself to my limits every session (something I usually struggle to do because I tend to train by myself when at the gym) and their nutritional advice was fantastic as well. Longest time I’ve ever followed (and enjoyed) a diet.
They’re also great guys who always kept up the banter so we could laugh through the pain between sets 🤣💪 can’t thank them enough 11/10 would recommend!!
