“The ZEST24 team provides a comprehensive week of hard work, information, fun laughs, sweat and most importantly, achievement! I successfully lost 6kg (13.2 lbs) over the duration, but much more importantly learned a protocol for continuing the journey myself when I return home.”my healthy journey.”
“Thanks for all the help and support on my fitness journey, so appreciated, already feel healthier. Overall a wonderful bootcamp, would 100% recommend to anybody. Coaches made everyone feel at ease and comfortable, couldn’t ask for more.”
“Very enjoyable, challenging week. Excellent people and team of ZEST24 personal trainers. Cannot speak highly enough of Jays culinary skills as well!”
“Chris, Katy and Suzy are very enthusiastic about what they do and are committed to help you achieve your goals. They are also supportive when needed and helped me achieve a lot more than just an increase in my fitness levels and weight-loss. Thank you very much and I hope to see you again.”
“I had an incredible week, my fitness levels have soared and I have lost 2% body fat. The team have been fabulous, extremely knowledgeable and professional, along with an amazing chef. They have equipped me with the tools and knowledge I need to continue my healthy journey.”
“I think you all did a great job. The classes were all good, food really tasty and plentiful. All coaches were encouraging. The location was lovely. It was a fun week.”
“I achieved all my goals and more. I can’t thank you guys enough. Between the 3 of you I was able to get the help and support I needed. A well balanced team. I will definitely come again and recommend to work friends. If you are at the start, middle or are more experienced, this camp has it all. Well done and thanks again.”
“Chris, Zest24’s head coach has been part of the 3 biggest events in my life, whipping me back into shape twice after both my children and helping me achieve the wedding day figure I desired. I’ve trained with Chris for almost 5 years and our sessions are constantly evolving. His expertise in exercise and nutrition are second to none, and if you do as he says (I do put up a little bit of a fight for fun) he will get you the body confidence we all dream of.”
“Having sustained a double break to my tibula and fibula in my left leg whilst playing football, I wanted to get back to my day job of tennis coaching as soon as my body would allow. To speed up the process and regain full range of movement in my leg I went in search for someone who could assist me with this. With glowing recommendations from friends and staff members at my gym, I found Chris and it was clear he would be able to help. His enthusiasm and knowledge came across in every aspect of his work and my recovery was a fast and enjoyable process as he kept sessions fresh and varied.
He has a great ability to be personable and relevant depending on the situation which was probably why i was so disciplined with carrying out my weekly sessions. Since training with Chris he not only got me back on court quicker with more confidence but also ignited a passion inside me to train and push my self physically 3 years on. I would recommend him for all your health and sporting needs in a heart beat. Thank you Chris, your work will always be appreciated.”
“I have been training with Chris from Zest24 for 5 years now. In late 2011 I suffered a disc prolapse and thought I might never be able to enjoy sport again. Chris helped me build core strength with tailored exercises and I now feel fitter and healthier than ever. I have lost a stone in weight and built muscle. Latterly I have been working with Chris on Olympic lifting, which has been quite a milestone for me, given what was a serious injury. All down to fantastic coaching from Chris and a bit of hard graft from me! It just goes to show what a great PT can help you achieve”.
“Since working with Zest24 I’ve changed many things; my weight, shape and body confidence have all been improved for the better. Zest24’s instructor Katy always pushes me for more as she believes i can do it and always makes me leave a session on a high. There is no pressure to achieve society expectations of how you should look. Its about your goals and aspirations and its done in a way that builds you up to be your better self. If you have a day when the food plan is a struggle there is no guilt given! More a confidence boost that you’re human and you will get back and smash it again tomorrow. I highly recommend Katy as working out with her will change you for the better.”
“Having been diagnosed with diabetes type 2, struggle with weight and poor exercise I found Zest24 and have been training with them. Now I am in clear of diabetes and I feel fitter and healthier, Zest24 helped me get my life back on track, I love to training with Chris, he has a great ability to be personable, disciplined and very enjoyable to train with great trainer, so he helped me to achieve my goal, so you can too.”.
“Before I found Zest24 I was stuck in a rut with my diet and exercise plans. I had no idea what exercises were the best for my goals and I didn’t realise that some of the foods I considered to be healthy could have been hindering my progess.
The team at Zest24 made me a personalised training plan which was tailored to my goals and created recipes for nutritious meals using foods that I enjoyed.
I managed to lose around 16lbs during my time training with them and it felt amazing having finally made some progress! I have since moved away, but I have taken all of the knowledge I gained during training with me. I can even hear Katy cheering me on in my head sometimes!”
“Zest24 are simply incredible. I was so insecure about my appearance and hitting the gym to get fit for my wedding and my career makes my diet sporadic and hard to maintain. They really boosted my confidence and gave me great ideas to eat healthy on the run. My PT sessions were energising and really helped with my confidence issues. The photos speak for themselves. Zest24 knew exactly what to do to bring out the best in me. Thank you!”
“I’ve been training regularly with Katy from Zest24 for a few years now. I initially decided to work with a PT because I was unhappy with my own progress in the gym, and had recently given up playing netball due to persistent pain and frequent injuries during games, so I had started to see my body fat and weight creep up slowly. I wasn’t eating enough of the right foods, hardly ever ate breakfast, and compensated my lack of calories during the day by eating loads of quick and easy carbs in the evening and my metabolism, as I approached 40 was really suffering. I felt sluggish and unfit. Well not anymore!
Katy’s focus on strength and resistance training, coupled with injections of cardio and high intensity interval training has been incredibly effective. I’ve lost body fat, and gained muscle, with an obvious change in muscle tone and shape across my upper and lower body. I’ve worked out, with Katy’s help, a way of eating which works for me and which makes it easy to control my weight.
Going into my forties I feel stronger and fitter than ever and even better, I’ve been able to start playing netball again. The strength training seems to have strengthened my back, hips and knees and I can now withstand the high impact nature of netball. I no longer need to strap up with supports and braces, and I also have the endurance to play full games against girls in their mid-twenties!
Katy has a holistic view of training, she offers great nutrition advice, can design easy to follow and effective diet plans if weight loss is what you are looking for, and regularly switches up the sessions in the gym to keep them fresh and fun and interesting. She pushes me harder than I could ever push myself and I absolutely love working with her.”
“Training with Zest24 has transformed my body! I was always very fit and regularly running half marathons but unable to lose weight beyond a certain point. They understood my weight loss and muscle building goals and prepared an exercise and eating programme to achieve this. I’ve lost over 2 stone of fat, dropping from a 36″ waist to 32″ and from XL t-shirts to mediums! I’ve also built muscle and got much stronger, training with Zest24 was the driving factor behind all of this.”
Katy is a fantastic, always enthusiastic and knowledgable personal trainer. I have struggled for a long time with my body image and Katy has taught me so much about training, nutrition and has always been a constant support to me emotionally and mentally. Definitely beyond and above your average PT! She has helped me so much along the way, which I am forever grateful for. Im still on my journey, but as Katy always reminded me it is about the journey, not the end result! Thank you for everything you have done for me and for making me laugh – I do miss our sessions!
The bootcamp was amazing – Katy and Chris are a wonderful, talented team and such lovely, awesome people! The bootcamp training was so much fun, which is what fitness is really about. It was so great to meet new people at the bootcamp and work together as a team whilst being outside enjoying nature. Couldn’t recommend it more.
