Yes we cater for all abilities.  

Classes are written so that everyone there will be pushed to their fitness level.  

Some sessions are banded Green (Beginner) Yellow (Intermediate) and Red (Advanced).  The sessions are run in the same format for all but the exercises given may be slightly varied dependant on your band.

You do not need to bring any equipment as this is provided.  The majority of Catton Park sessions are bodyweight only or we incorporate resistance bands.

At Whitlingham we are able to use more equipment, which is sanitised and supplied for your workout.

All exercises can be adapted to your current level of strength or fitness.

We recommend you bring a water bottle and hand sanitiser.  A backpack is a good idea too.

These classes are for over 16’s.  No maximum age group.

The classes are designed to test every level.  An advanced class is not required nor is a beginners class.  All abilities will be pushed to their level in the Bootcamp.


  • Craig is a great PT he is very relaxed and approachable and is happy to organise as much or little as you want but keeps pushing you on to improve. His gym is well equipped and is a really nice working space.

He is always enthusiastic,attentive and motivated to help people reach their goals. I would highly recommend Craig to all those who are looking for a personal trainer.

  • Craig's popular Core Conditioning classes are good fun and a good work out, and they always vary slightly each week. Craig demonstrates each exercise at the beginning of the class and he offers several alternatives if you've got an injury or weak spot, and he will come and show you on the way round if you forget what to do. The music is great, and I always seem to enjoy the exercises more the second time round the circuit! Thanks Craig for the interesting exercises!

  • I had a training session with Craig today.I hadn't been to the gym in a few months but I did surprisingly well, Craig's encouragement helped. I learnt a few new exercises too. I liked the fact there wasn't any equipment involved, the flexibility means you could do it at home if you wanted.Craig explained what muscle groups the various exercises focused on and gave a thorough demonstration of how to do the exercises correctly.I thoroughly enjoyed the session and recommend his personal training skills to anyone, whether you're starting out or want to change up your exercise routine.Thanks again Craig 😊

  • I had never used a gym and started my weekly sessions with Craig with some trepidation but I have come to really enjoy our training sessions.

    Every week I feel stronger and even things I did not think I could do I have managed, and really enjoy. Craig’s encouragement and positive reinforcement to complete the workouts has helped me to lose weight and build core strength and general conditioning which is the reason I started with him. He has given me advice about diet and calorie intake and steady weight loss, and I continue to see improvements each week.

    Craig is very knowledgeable, ensures training is carried out safely and puts you at ease. I would not hesitate to recommend him and I look forward to continue to work with him.

  • Craig is a brilliant PT. Super motivational and friendly, but pushes you all the way at the same time. I was a bit out of practice exercise wise due to lockdown, but Craig got me over my nervousness really quickly, and now I'm feeling great about getting moving again.

    Both Craig and Stu are knowledgeable and professional instructors. Come along to the Bootcamps, you will love it.

  • I would absolutely recommend Craig for personal training, he is very knowledgeable and manages to keep me motivated even on the days I don’t feel it. His pricing is very reasonable and I get a lot out of each session, he even manages to keep each session interesting by introducing new exercises that are easy to do on your own inbetween sessions.

  • I have been going to Craig's Core Conditioning class for some time. This is a brilliant class, challenging and with enough variety to keep it interesting. As i have had some injuries when needed Craig has adapted the exercises to stretch me but help my recovery. Recently I have had a couple of sessions to work on specific areas - the sessions were perfectly tailored and easily explained. They are sessions I will be able to fit into my schedule and I know will develop my fitness further. I can't recommend Craig enough - fabulous PT.
