"To be honest, I was seriously worried at the start of this programme because I had just invested in a fitness trainer and coach from the other side of the world that I had been talking to for just 20 minutes!

I had nothing to worry about because that first call showed me that you meant business.

Fast forward to now, I've lost 14.5kg in 12 weeks on your programme and my strength has gone up. I didn’t see this coming mate!

I still can’t comprehend how easy it was to lose weight on your 12 week programme.

I had a picture in mind at the very start of the program of drinking meal replacement shakes and having to starve myself all day. How wrong I was.

The flexibility of what you can eat in this programme makes it very easy and the best part is that it is a lifestyle that I can now continue on and maintain with ease, thanks to your coaching."

I am thrilled! I am fitter, stronger, healthier and have the beginning of a toned body. I reached my goal of losing that lingering post-pregnancy weight. I now look and feel even fitter than before both my pregnancies.

In the 12 weeks I lost a total of 8kg going from 58kg to 50kg!

Gav has a simple, very effective approach in his 12 week programme.

He gets you where you want to be and even shows you the way beyond that if you want to. And he does that in a no-nonsense way, whilst listening to you and giving you tools and insights helping you to achieve your goal.

Thank you Gav"

I started following Gav on LinkedIn a year or so ago, and appreciated his honest and straight to the point approach to weight loss and coaching.

When I received his newsletter saying he was looking for women to join his 12-week coaching programme, I knew I had to give it a go.

In the last few years, I have gained a few extra kilos that I was struggling to shift permanently. I tried different programmes - HIIT, some weight training but nothing that I felt was sustainable and didn't feel like a diet.

Gav's programme was easy to follow - gave me the freedom to eat/drink whatever I felt like, as long as I hit my protein and calorie goal.It took some diet adjustments, but I quickly realised that by including high protein foods in my diet I can keep feeling full and also allow myself little treats like chocolate, ice-cream and G&T's.

I have achieved excellent results in the last 12 weeks, I haven`t looked and felt this good in years!

I have achieved excellent results in the last 12 weeks, I haven`t looked and felt this good in years!

I lost over 7.5kg and am down 2 dress sizes!

I feel more confident, enjoy shopping for clothes and am looking forward to a beach holiday this summer as I know I'll be feeling great in a bikini.

I haven`t achieved my dream body yet, my first goal was to lose 7kg in the 12 weeks, which I smashed in 10 weeks! I now want to lose another couple of kg and tone up further.

The most important result of the 12 weeks transformation with Gav has been that weight loss doesn`t frustrate me anymore, I know that if I follow the process I can achieve my weight goal!

"I met Gav on LinkedIn a couple of years back and frequently read with interest his philosophies on life, work, nutrition and weight loss on his posts.

I have been working in the Business Software arena for nearly 25 years spending most morning sat in the car, most days sat at a desk or standing at a white board and evenings in hotel rooms.

Nights in a hotel typically meant I was swigging a couple of pints each night, eating burgers and feasting on the cooked breakfast in the mornings.

Slowly but surely over a period of about ten years it’d crept up from around 14 stone to just under 20 and had struggled to lose it.

Like most people, I’d tried all sorts of diets and ‘cures’ but nothing worked for me, and my weight was impacting on my health (sore knees, bad lower back etc.)

I knew something needed to change and that I needed mentoring.

I know that Gav worked with people who travelled frequently and decided to give him a call.

So in November 2018, following a nice informal chat with Gav, I joined his 12 week programme and lost a total of 24lbs in the three months, following Gav’s easy to follow system.

I continued to eat the foods I enjoy, tried new foods and learnt about nutrition and how to work and understand the numbers and was introduced to other lifestyle “gold nuggets”.

I still have a long way to go but now I have the tools and the mindset to succeed and get down to my goal weight; I’m looking forward to continue to work with Gav to help me achieve this.

I found Gav’s programme easy to follow, extremely educational and fun to do.

I’ve learnt far more in the three months than I thought I would.

Gav is also really easy to talk to and his friendly, honest, straight talking approach was exactly the kind of coaching and support I needed.

I'd recommend working with him because he will help you make small steps that will have a huge impact on your life and wellbeing, steps that you can follow each and every day, regardless of what life throws at you.

Thank you, Gavin."

“I have always struggled with my weight (and suffered with an over-reactive knife and fork). I had always done a lot of weightlifting but had never taken the nutrition seriously – I had always thought that to lose weight I’d have to basically become vegan and live on Lentils and sunflower seeds. I was also afraid I wouldn’t be as strong if I lost weight, but 12 weeks on and 2 stone lighter I couldn’t be more happier.

I eat a lot of high protein/low carb foods which means I’m always full up and also means I’m not losing muscle with the fat! And I can now deadlift and bench press more than ever!! I couldn’t have done this without Gav’s knowledge, experience and his 12 week coaching plan - he gave me a plan to follow and I did just that - and it worked.

I'd 100% recommend working with Gav - thanks"

"Wow. I’ve never expected to have such dramatic before and after photos. I’m extremely pleased with the results.

His format of training, two half hour sessions a week, is perfect to combine with two workouts on your own, with one rest day. It really helps to keep your motivation up, week-on-week.

Along with high intensity training, Gav helps you tweak your diet to ratchet up the results. He knows when to push and when to lay off and always does it with his trademark sense of humour.

If you’re umming and ahing about whether or not to have a trainer and just go for it, follow his advice and watch the results start to happen from the outset".

"My wedding day was March 21st and not only did folks compliment me on how great I looked, they pointed out how amazing my arms looked too!

I’d never had toned arms before and my bingo wings were finally gone! Instead of hiding from the camera on my wedding day, I never once thought about my weight or how I looked.

This peace of mind was the greatest gift Gavin could have given me."

Lynne

Lynne

"Six months on, here I am feeling in the BEST shape of my adult life.

Although I have only lost about 6kg in weight, my body shape is completely transformed and the clothes that had become uncomfortably tight / unwearable are now all hanging off me / in the bin (I shall be sending Gav the bill for the entire new wardrobe I have had to buy!).

I have now made a genuine and permanent change to the way I eat and think about food, gained a real commitment out working out and feeling healthy and I’m determined not to slip back into my old ways.

Most importantly I feel really HEALTHY and full of energy, rather than being constantly tired."

Peter

Peter

"Last summer a good friend of mine decided he wanted to climb Kilimanjaro and my siblings decided they wanted us all to run the London Marathon.

I told Gav all of this and we started on a proper training plan.

I definitely enjoyed both Kilimanjaro and the marathon a lot more because of Gavin’s training and tips along the way.

The goals were achievable but because I was prepared for them properly I had the energy and belief in myself thanks to Gavin."

Alex

Alex

"I’m very happy with the results that I achieved when training with Gav.

His knowledge about nutrition and training is second to none and I think my pictures speak for themselves.

I never imagined I could achieve this type of condition. For anyone looking to compete in a fitness/bodybuilding show, please contact Gav as he seriously knows what he is doing.

Matilda

Matilda

I used to be in the gym 5-6 times a week working my bum off at gym classes, constantly on the treadmill/cross-trainer and eating what I thought was healthy but never got the results I wanted, until I started training with Gav.

Gav taught me more about getting in shape in the past few months, than years of going to the gym. His passion for health and fitness is contagious, and the results are obvious!

My body has never looked better, and I have Gav to thank for it!

Anna

Anna

"I signed up to the competition with hopes it would give me the extra pressure I needed to make significant changes in my fitness and shape… and it did!

I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive or knowledgeable PT than Gav, he was there all the way encouraging me on.

Gav has such a passion and it is contagious, not only that, the amount I have learnt both about training and health is almost overwhelming. The competition was worth every penny, the effort and training has really paid off."

Mark

Mark

"I was hoping for a good result in the competition but I never thought I would end up winning it. I am really proud and I will continue working with Gav Gillibrand to get myself to the next level. Without them it would not have been possible!

After the 6 week competition I flew straight to the Maldives and posted my first beach picture on Facebook. The replies I got from people were amazing! People were asking me if I had a personal trainer and where I had been hiding my body for the last years. They just could not believe it and to be honest neither could I.

I felt great, looked great and was really happy with myself."

Ania

"I lost 13 kg in 4 months and it was great to go back home for Christmas and see everyone’s reaction. They were amazed to see what I achieved in such a short amount of time and they were even more amazed when I told them that all I did was weight-lifting once a week combined with tabatas and sprints.

The moment I started training with Gav Gillibrand my life has changed and it is not only about the lost kilograms but also about the gained confidence and respect for myself

I never looked so good in my life and it is because I learned so much about healthy dieting and exercising."

Oliver

Oliver

"So I woke up one day and realised that despite the fact that I cycled 80-90 miles a week to and from work I didn’t really like what I saw – I was middle aged and really looked it!

I started training with Gav Gillibrand, listened and absorbed what they had to say – I took it all on board and have acted on most of it but not necessarily all at the same time.

I’m loving the “journey” and do see it very much as that. I don’t usually do this type of testimonial but Gav Gillibrand is more than just a Personal Training. Lifestyle coaching and fitness guru is a better description and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants to make a change to their life."

Yogini

Yogini

"I have always struggled with my weight since I was a teenager, never really knowing how to shift it effectively. I discovered Gav Gillibrand and started training with Gavin twice a week.

With me being vegetarian it has always been difficult trying to make my suggested daily protein intake that Gavin suggested but by having two protein shakes EVERY day I can do that and easily.

Losing this weight has made a massive positive impact on my life and I just went out and bought new gym clothes 2 sizes smaller than before. Thank you Gav, you are fantastic."

Rob H

"Over the years I’ve found that its getting harder and harder to shed that winter coat. I knew that my cavalier attitude to my friend beer was going to have to change.

We progressed steadily over the weeks, the body fat dropped off and the muscle appeared. So I think I can pat myself on the back for working hard during my sessions but I have still enjoyed myself at the same time.

I’ve seen my strength increase significantly and achieved my body fat goal in time for my trip. I dropped over 3 inches from my waist line which was a real shocker as I slipped into a pair of 32” waist trousers for the first time in… well a lot of years!"

Paul

Paul

"I exercised regularly but the Pump classes weren’t making much headway against the gin & tonics I knew I was drinking too often.

Gav got me moving, kept me motivated and gave us a gym programme to follow 2-3 times a week in my own time.

I worked hard but it was worth it. After four months working out with Gav, I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ve lost weight, gained strength and muscle, and feel great."

Cynthia

Cynthia

"I wanted real muscle definition and a change of shape. Gavin very quickly discovered what I needed. Because of my body type I tend to gain muscle very quickly so to achieve my goal, we had to adapt my training.

Gavin has focused my journey through fitness and body sculpting and I know what I need to get results! Right now I can safely say I am in the best shape of my life!

Body fat is down, shape is much trimmer and I have more energy than I know what to do with. I feel great."

Stewart

Stewart

"A high blood pressure diagnosis and a trip to Australia in November where swimsuits would be involved, were the prompts for ‘something’s got to change’.

After some research I met Gav from Gav Gillibrand and decided I’d ask him to help me to get back on track in the four months until the trip.

I liked his approach. I said ‘Don’t tell me to join the steamed broccoli and chicken brigade – I like food with flavour’. He assured me I’d have plenty to eat but that I’d earn it – and I did.

I followed the eating plan to the letter and it was so satisfying to see the kilos starting to drop off within days. It’s true – abs really are made in the kitchen as much as they are in the gym."

Duncan

Duncan

"I’ve worked with Gav for a few years now but this pic was taken after 6 months. Before that I was the typical guy in the city, smoking, drinking too much and eating crap food. Gav changed all that and I’ve never looked back.

I dropped over 2 stone in 6 months and regained my health, energy and I just feel fantastic.

Thanks Gav!"

Terry

Terry

"Gav took me from being underweight, unhealthy and feeling like sh*t to be honest, to feeling confident and happy about my body.

I gained 8kg of lean body mass in just over 5 months. I was more than impressed with this and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his services to anyone."

Lawrence

Lawrence

"Like many thirty-something year-olds in the City, over the last fifteen years exercise has taken an unintentional back seat in favour of the ‘City life’: sedentary work life followed by overindulgence of foodstuffs which, when combined with a lack of exercise, results in an undesirable level of fitness and deteriorating body shape.

Gav has provided me with a diet plan which I have not really followed in the first three months, but he has chipped away at me and cordially explained: “What is the point of doing half of it? You’re just spending money on PT sessions and wine / beer now!

So, the next three months is about really trying to change my lifestyle and adopt the Gav Gillibrand way of living. That’s not to say one cannot enjoy oneself, but to know one’s limits.

What Gav doesn’t know about PT and nutrition, in my opinion, is not worth knowing and I look forward to the challenge of the next three months."

Ian

Ian

"I first noticed Gav's postings on Linkedin a few months ago. I knew I needed to get fitter and become healthier and was looking for a more enjoyable way to do it than simply joining a gym. I also loved the daily emails, all positive stuff and loads of advice for free.

I dropped Gav an email and we had a chat about what I wanted to achieve. We started training for half hour, 3 times a week and Gav gave me a diet sheet and told me to cut down on the drinking.

I stuck to the plan and within a couple of weeks I started to notice the difference. More energy, looking far healthier, even the soda and limes in the pub were tasting better.

I'm 7 weeks into our first 12 week block and I've lost 5kg, which is all body fat."

Mark2

Mark

"I’ve lost 15kg of body fat training with Gav in just 6 months and we’ve only just started.

Gav gave me a plan to follow and I did just that – every day. I was hungry for this as I knew I had to change my weight and my health.

We are now into the second phase and I cant wait to see the results."

Ibiza Retreat, 2016

Susanne & Giles

 

324I really wanted to start with a massive thank you for an amazing week.

I feel like I have had my reset button pushed and really do feel like a new person which is never something I thought I would say.  Before I came away I was stuck in a bit of a rut, making excuses for why I couldn’t make time for exercise, eating pretty poorly and letting lots of things get on top of me. Having the week away with you guys gave me exactly what I needed in terms of the kick start.  I may not be getting up at 5am but I am getting up at 6am which is 45 minutes earlier than I used to.I am using that time to do some exercise- so far this week I went for a run Tuesday and Thursday, 15 mins of tabata on Monday and Wednesday and half an hour of Yoga today.

I have so much more energy for the day and I am using the rest of the extra time in the morning to be in less of a rush.  It’s amazing how having a leisurely breakfast and a drive in to work where I am not rushing sets me off on the right track rather than getting stressed and frustrated! I have also been loving the Yoga. I have bought myself a mat and now when I am home alone instead of watching some crap on TV between 9 &10pm and messing on my phone at the same time I follow a Yoga video. This has been perfect for relaxation and I feel great after it and ready to head straight to bed for a good sleep. I have also been looking at some evening classes nearby so will try to persuade Susanne to join me!

In terms of the eating I have been cutting a lot of the rubbish out.  Always difficult when you work in a Chocolate factory but making sure I have healthy snacks on my desk instead is working.

I am also trying to bring a few of the ideas and ingredients from the Ibiza kitchen into mine and we are definitely eating more fish and less red meat. The most important change I have seen is in my own positivity and outlook.  I look at challenges differently and more positively and I am actively making time for myself and setting objectives for what I want to do.  I am not yet keeping up with the journaling but as my attitude is changing I can see that I may take it up.

It has been amazing the changes people have seen in me.

My work colleagues keep on referring to me as the ‘new Giles’ as I am much more relaxed and positive and outside of work my friends keep saying how well I look.  I do feel a lot leaner and stronger which is exactly what I wanted as had felt this slip over the last few years.

Again a massive thanks to you both.  Not only did I have a fantastic time whilst out in Ibiza with lots of laughs, relaxation and fun, I also go so much more out of the week that will hopefully stay with me for a long time to come.

I do feel incredibly lucky to have got the opportunity to come on the trip so have a massive thanks for Susanne for booking in the first place and Andy for giving me the chance to take his place. It would never have been the type of thing I would have signed up for myself but am so glad the opportunity came along and I would definitely do it again.

Thanks again and hopefully see you again soon”


-Giles Naish-

melThe retreat was thoroughly executed.

Owen and I throughly enjoyed it – fantastic accommodation, great food, great workouts and great activities. If it could have been better we can’t imagine how. I hope you’ve given yourself a great big pat on the back for a job well done.

Thanks for the memories. Hugs and mush,

Melanie & Owen

329Dear Gav & Tom

Thanks so much for a truly wonderful week in Ibiza. I loved every moment, even the 5am club. It was a fantastic experience and one I will never forget. You did a fantastic job and out such a great effort into it all. I hope you both enjoyed it too? I miss everyone and I miss Bootcamp. Pete and I are trying to carry on with some the good habits and new ideas we learnt last week. The whole trip was such a positive one and I smile every time I think of it. A thousand thank you’s and I hope to see you again soon.
