Gemma is a fantastic personal trainer. Her training sessions are a mix of fun and hard work. If you think exercising is boring, I can ensure you, Gemma will prove you wrong. Having done her sessions, I never felt like they were repetitive. She always made me look forward to the new week and new workouts and leave with a big smile on my face (and sometimes with achey legs…).
I have achieved so much thanks to Gemma. She has not only made me love exercising again, but she has also helped me to change my whole lifestyle. My eating habits are much better, I am more energised and sleeping much better. I started to work with Gemma in September 2015 and by the end of the year I had already lost so much weight that I needed a whole new wardrobe, including new smaller size gym clothes!
No matter if you want to lose weight or just get fit, Gemma is the one who will help you achieve all your goals and have fun while doing it.

For the past two years Jermaine has been instrumental in my development as an amateur boxer, working on developing my technique, fitness and skills. As a personal trainer he is an expert in his field but also has a broad knowledge of the general areas of strength and conditioning training and fitness which has been really helpful for me. Jermaine is a great trainer to work with, he brings enjoyment to training, knows his stuff and is very motivational. I highly recommend him.

Ten years ago I was a very lazy person. After my sons birth I became a lazy and heavy person but still with no intention whatsoever to work out. I hated working out. Then I met Gemma. She started working out with me on a yoga mat in Hyde Park. One day she brought along her boxing gloves and that’s where I got hooked;)
Gemma is extremely knowledgeable when It comes to body, anatomy, nutrition, and what to do if you have injuries. She is constantly evolving and educating herself and in turn you never get bored with her ever changing programs. Her patience showed results. Soon I looked different and felt different all thanks to her professional and motivational methods.
Gemma is extremely flexible, honest and has a fantastic personality. We have become very good friends and I very much look forward to my weekly workout sessions. I would strongly recommend her, whether you are a lazy beginner or a well trained sporty person, she will meet your needs. All in all you are extremely lucky if you have Gemma as your personal trainer!

I quite simply could not overstate how much Jermaine and Gemma have meant to my training routine over the last two years. I have known them as boxing and fitness coaches at Islington Boxing Club in North London and attended their classes at least twice per week. Although I had always been active and committed to daily exercise, working out in Gemma’s and Jermaine’s classes pushed me well beyond my usual level. I was able to significantly improve my overall physical conditioning, endurance and strength. Even when working in groups, they quickly learn about your abilities and needs. They always manage to give you personal attention and help you improve your performance. Their routines are rigorous, challenging and engaging. One thing that has always stood out for me was how unafraid they are about mixing things up and keeping our sessions interesting and exciting for everybody in the class. Most importantly, they create such a welcoming and friendly environment that you actually WANT to spend your time training with them, be it after work, on a Sunday morning or during your vacation. They are highly professional, reliable and caring trainers that will get the most out of you and help you be fit, healthy and happy in your life. I am really sorry to see them move from London, but am positive that they will have a great time working in Chichester and wish them every possible success in their career.

Gemma’s and Jermaine’s classes have been my favourite at the Islington Boxing Club for nearly two years now. In addition to giving an excellent opportunity to reach your most demanding personal fitness goals and improve your boxing skills, Gemma and Jermaine create a very friendly and encouraging atmosphere at the gym so that, no matter how intense and strenuous some exercises are, you always look forward to their classes. Brilliant coaches, very inventive and determined in their effort to make their workouts challenging and effective, yet engaging and enjoyable, Gemma and Jermaine are exceptionally caring, considerate and attentive to individual needs and aspirations of their students.

I’ve always wanted to try boxing. I had read and heard so much about the benefits of taking classes but was far too intimidated to attend a public class. For someone who is less interested in the “boxercise” trend and who is genuinely interested in acquiring the skill, it can be difficult to find a gym that caters to this. . Jermaine eased me into training, being very kind, encouraging and sensitive to my feelings of unease and my physical abilities. Jermaine has truly helped me build an appreciation for boxing as a sport as well as for exercise. Our sessions are not watered down – there is truly no workout quite like boxing. After each training session, you genuinely feel that every muscle in your body has been worked. I train with Jermaine once or twice a week and in this time he has helped build a strong foundation in boxing, building my strength, endurance and fitness all while being the kindest, most understanding and encouraging coach.

Gemmas classes are highly inspirational and invigorating and her teaching technique is very motivating, encouraging and supportive.
Class format is tough, it really works your body as a female, core, legs and butt- a superb strengthener and a real burner.
Complete endorphin rush and I always feel so elated after my training sessions with Gemma.
Thank you for keeping my mind and body in great shape!
