What We Do
Getting The UK Fitter!
Reach Personal Training provides private, members’ only fitness facilities where our personal training clients can relax and retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life by focusing on their health and fitness and restoring some balance to their life.
The Reach Personal Training approach to health and fitness is no-nonsense but fun, friendly and motivating. We don’t do short-cuts, we don’t do fad diets or Herbalife or Juice Plus! Our training programmes are based on science and common-sense and they get long-lasting results.
We work with a huge range of different clients, some of whom are struggling to run round the block, some of whom are relatively fit and want expert advice but virtually all of our clients are have one thing in common – they are normal people, with jobs and real lives who want a friendly, non-intimidating personal training programme.
If you hate the thought of drifting aimlessly from machine to machine around a commercial gym, with Jeremy Kyle on the TV, then get in touch today to enquire about what we believe is the future of trainer-led health and fitness.

This is particularly relevant for start-ups and SMEs, where the cost of absence can be crippling.” (Jon Andrews, HR consulting lead at PwC)

Reach Fitness UK Group
Reach Fitness UK was created by Danny Sroda (The Real Fitness Coach) to provide a trusted alternative to the ubiquitous "get fit quick" pyramid schemes that prey on the thousands of frustrated and desperate people in the UK who would like to improve their health, fitness and quality of life, but don't know where to start.
Danny's background as an HE lecturer in management, teaching personal development and organisational behaviour combined with over 12 years researching, practicing and coaching health and fitness, means that he is uniquely qualified to help people over the physical and mental hurdles of getting fit.
Reach Fitness UK now provides intelligently designed and sustainable fitness programmes to the public and industry and are leading the way in getting the UK fitter.
Our Fitness For Business, Body-Toning Bootcamps and Personal Training programmes are based on three core principles:
1, Science - Our training and nutrition programming is underpinned by science, not supplement sales!
2, Sustainability – It doesn’t matter if the plan is perfect if the client can’t stick to it. Better to work at a sustainable 50% effort for 30 years than 100% effort for a few weeks before giving up.
3, Friendliness – This is what has driven us from day one. We only want to work with nice people because we only employ nice people. It’s not a business thing – it’s just how we are as people.
“I created Reach Fitness because I believe that, for the general population, good health and fitness is based more on psychology that physiology. By creating the right mind-set from the outset and putting the needs of our clients before making a quick buck (you'll never find us pushing spurious, quick-fix diet pills), we have helped hundreds of people to change their lives for the better; without wanting to sound too hyperbolic - we've saved lives. I'm immensely proud of what we've achieved and I truly believe that our expert knowledge of motivation, personal development and organisational behaviour, combined with our education and experience in health and fitness makes us a leading player in the fitness industry.

Fitness isn’t just about how fast or how far you can run. There are many different areas of fitness, each of which is interrelated with the other, for example: strength, speed, cardiovascular endurance, local muscular endurance (e.g. rowing), muscular strength endurance (e.g. repeated heavy squats), mobility and flexibility, psychological fitness, agility, power, balance and coordination. Our centralised programming means that we achieve our clients’ individual fitness goals through a consistent and value-driven methodology. This ensures that each and every client gets access to our industry leading expertise.
Our nutrition plans are built on solid, scientific research, combined with over a decade of real-world planning and implementation of nutrition programmes. Our clients eat whole, healthy, unprocessed foods and do not go hungry – in fact they often to lose weight by eating more food – the “right” foods! There is growing evidence that lifestyle, including the food we put in our bodies, is a major contributor to serious diseases such as cancers, strokes and heart attacks so we want to be at the forefront of changing attitudes towards nutrition. Our nutrition plans help our clients to look better, feel better and more than likely live longer!
Motivation isn’t just about intensity, it’s also about direction. Someone who sits on the sofa day-in day-out is highly motivated – to do just that! That is a real level of commitment to what they are doing! So, before we work on intensity and geeing people up (that soon wears off!) we focus on direction through education, leading by example and an empathetic approach – we try to see the problem through our clients’ eyes before we come up with a solution.
We work with all kinds of different people, each with unique and individual goals, expectations and levels of commitment. We aren't "gurus" or slaves to one method of training because we know from experience that there are numerous ways to achieve the same goal. All we ask is that our clients align their expectations with their level of effort and commitment in order to create a lasting and sustainable approach to health and fitness.
