Here is a short intro video from me explaining why I started

Active-Rest and my reason for being a Personal Trainer.


I couldn’t believe how many calories I was burning...

When we went into lockdown the gyms shut so I was unable to do any training at the gym and was finding it hard to motivate myself to do any kind of fitness.

I then discovered Richard East, a Personal Trainer, at Active-Rest who was doing online live sessions every day for an hour doing just body weight exercises.

I couldn’t believe how many calories I was burning and I continued doing the online live sessions and some on demand sessions if I was unable to make the live ones. Each session was different, really well thought out and made you work hard. The more sessions I did the more I enjoyed doing them, could see and feel the benefits and wanted to keep doing them.

At the end of 2019 I weighed 78kg and when I weighed myself in May 2020 I was 76.3 kg. By June 2020 I weighed 74.6kg which was the lightest I had been since my twenties and I could see a transformation in my body.

I really enjoy the live sessions most - Richard is so encouraging and helpful...

I have been a member of Active Rest since the start of the pandemic, as I couldn't go to my usual PT during lockdown. I really enjoy the live sessions most - Richard is so encouraging and helpful, and having the option to have live session suits me as it can't be put off until later!, and its true, you always feel better after a work out :) The website has so much content, that you can always find a work out, or combination of work outs to fit in with time constraints etc. There are lots of options at each level too. The nutrition advice and ideas is also really inspiring. I would recommend Richard and Active-Rest to anyone who wants to get fitter or just maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The meal planner has been a lifesaver with so many great recipes that are really tasty and not too hard to make!

The LIVE! Sessions and exercise videos speak for themselves and I've really enjoyed doing them for a few months now, but what I like the most is the amount of beneficial reading I've been able to do. Richards articles are so good and cover every part of health which I'm loving learning about.
