What our clients say
I started using Wowfit when I was looking for a PT to help me lose a little bit of weight. Someone recommended it and from the first minute customer care was fantastic! I was able to try different trainers for free before choosing the best fit for me. My trainer Luzane is very good, she keeps the sessions always a bit different and enjoyable. Happy to say that I nearly reached my weight goal!
Fantastic service at a friendly price. My trainer Ryan helps me push towards my goals by squeezing that extra rep. Customer support keeps an eye on my activity and nudges me back into training whenever I have to skip a few sessions. Highly recommended!
I met the greatest Personal Trainer!
I am training with Luzane, she is great! I used to have a PT on a regular basis for three years and after moving to London I coudn´t find a way to have the same routine. Wowfit was the thing I needed! You can choose different trainers depending on your goals, level and preferences. I chose Luzane and SHE IS AMAZING! I absolutely recommend!
Absolutely love my sessions with my Personal Trainer. I was very nervous about taking the first step as I was so overweight and so unfit. I had a free trial session and loved it. I was given a choice of trainers who were suited to my level and goals. My trainer (Tamsin) has helped me so much on my journey so far. I was only going to sign up for a few weeks but now six months in and still looking forward to our sessions twice a week. I would never have plucked up the courage to go to a 'real' gym (let alone been able to afford a session with a trainer at a gym). The one-to-one sessions are very affordable, the trainers are so knowledgeable, and I can do it from the comfort of my own home rather than having to travel. I'm slimmer, fitter, stronger and loving life.
Arranging the free trial and signing up for a package afterward was quick and easy. My trainer Lola is AMAZING! I absolutely hate exercise and haven't been able to stick to an exercise routine since school. But Lola makes my workouts fun and keeps me motivated by adjusting my workouts for my specific needs. Now that I'm working with Lola, I look forward to my workout sessions!
It’s been an amazing journey with Wowfit. I tried another company in the past and the difference in service is outstanding. I really love wowfit because there are multitudes of trainers with a wide range of available timings. You get to do your workout at any time. Even after work. The customer service is amazing as well. Responsive and helpful. Lastly and most importantly, I lost more than 5kg since I joined. Isn’t that amazing?
Amazing customer service. The admin team is so helpful My fitness expert is lovely professional friendly encouraging. She has really adapted our routine to accommodate my hip injury. Highly Recommended. ❣️
Wowfit is a very professional platform for the best trainers out there. What's amazing is that they tailor the program based on your needs and select the best fit for you. On top of that, you know it's an investment when you’re not entitled to utilize the sessions in a month or so as there is no expiration! I love it and I’m seeing the amazing results with my PT Anastasia!
Anna was excellent with assessing which trainer would be a good fit for me as well as arranging a trial session & discussing package options prior to me signing up. Judy, my trainer, is lovely & an all around STAR! She is knowledgeable, empathic, patient, motivating & deeply caring!
My experience with the personal trainer has blown my mind because I am not into fitness. I went from not knowing what an arm raise or a squat was to enjoying and looking forward to each session with gusto. I enjoyed the human connection that comes through even on the screen. I have certainly improved my fitness level and learned so much.
I have had trial sessions with different coaches, in-person and online. At first, I thought that online would be very impersonal but found out that I felt more heard and understood by Maria than by the in-person trainers I have met with. Maria was listening and getting to know who I was, my goals, my needs…After one session with Maria, I automatically felt motivated and I know that this is going to work for me. I encourage everyone to book a trial session.
I love my Judy's sessions. She is supportive, cheering and motivating. So my workouts are as entertaining as they are challenging. Thanks wowfit for this opportunity to exercise remotely with Judy! Online live sessions are so convenient with my busy schedule.
I was amazed by the results that come from personalized workouts. In just 60 minutes of training, in my living room, Victoria led my transformation and helped me finally get back in shape! I also feel more energized, confident and inspired. I have never met her in person, but she is now one of my biggest supporters! Workouts with WowFit truly helped me in weight loss and goal achievement!
My workout sessions with Judy have been extremely valuable. In the last month I have definitely become stronger and increased endurance. Since our first session, Judy listened to my needs and has structured our workout sessions accordingly. Judy is always on time and easy to communicate with outside of our sessions.
Wowfit comes with a bunch of advantages: 1. Time saver. You can get better use of your time getting to- and from the gym; 2. Money saver. Its personal trainer services cost a couple of times less than anywhere else; 3. Orientation on results. You state your goals; then, the system picks up the best coach depending on your exigences. It worked out for me particularly well; 4. Efficiency booster. (Applies to who never uses personal trainer services.) Personal trainer drastically increases the efficiency of your exercises. Doing things the right way helps you to achieve your objectives much quicker. It has been a lovely experience, and I go on using its services!
Leandi is an experienced and very professional trainer. I've been training with her for almost 2 months now with personal 1-1 live online sessions and I see very motivating results. She is focused, nice (sometimes tough), she cares about me and understands when to push limits to get results. I trained with her 2-3 a week, and really enjoyed the variety and challenge she put into the sessions. She is focused on helping me achieve my goals and makes every session challenging and fun.
I want to highlight that her online live sessions work perfectly for me! Initially, I was a little bit skeptical about this approach (I was not sure is it possible to correct my techniques using just a video call / can we interact online with a trainer as with regular trainer?). Everything started working well after 2 sessions. (Be honest, the first session was a little bit weird for me because of this new format). Finally, I can say the online format is super convenient for me from a time-savings perspective and at the same time, it is even more affordable (no need to pay gym fees).
