Lets See What Just Some Of Our Clients Have To Say About Us...

I’d like to say a huge thank I you to both Tom and Dan for their support, encouragement and most of all their expertise in helping me regain my fitness this year. 
The years of sitting at my desk and commuting in the train had taken a real toll on my health. At the start of the summer I set myself a personal goal to focus on my health and well-being, with a specific focus on getting stronger (not just slimmer).
At my initial meeting with Tom he listened intently and asked thoughtful questions about my goals and objectives. 
I’ve been training with Tom and Dan for 5 months now and I  incredibly proud To say I’ve lost weight, lost inches, gained muscle mass and increased my fitness levels.
This was possible because the team set very clear training objectives for me from the outset, they listened when I made suggestions and incorporated those into the programme. They reassured me me when I felt I wasn’t making progress and celebrated me when I did. 
The training sessions are continually adapted to stretch me or reflect my increased fitness ability.  I have never watched the clock when during a training session and I’ve never been bored! Quite the opposite.
One of the best things about training with this team is the client activity weekends they organise. I joined them on their Snowdon trip this year which was an absolute blast.  Fabulous fun from start to finish.  It’s great way of testing your fitness levels after months of training as well as incentivising you on carry on.  I’ve already signed up to the Norway trip which the team are helping me to get physically fit for.
Once again, thank you both for your professionalism and support. Looking forward to the next challenge!

This time last year these shorts were a snug fit (LEFT / UP).

Finally the hard work is now showing, people have been commenting but I didn't believe it until now. 

I have been consistent in my training, rarely missing a session, together with just moving more and eating a little less.

More importantly I feel good in myself, I didn't wave a magic wand, I haven't followed a massively strict diet, and I have slowly chipped away at it for 14 months with the help of Dan & Tom from Tom Richards Personal Training Ltd.

Roll on September and slipping into my wedding dress!!

Stacey Doddsworth, Harlow

I have been training with Tom for the past 2 years, only stopped as I'm going travelling as I would still be training with him.
Since being with Tom I have learned so much about how my body and muscles work, and have borrowed all of his knowledge to be able to use on my own.
I've always loved going to the gym but having a personal trainer makes a session a bit more fun and I find I push myself a little bit more when I train with Tom. Not only does he offer Personal Training and Dietary Advice, he does a few client trips each year which are always fun and give you something to work for.
I would highly recommend Tom if you want to change your lifestyle and have fun while getting in shape.

Fay Chapman, Harlow

Tom is very professional and very reliable. He's very knowledgeable and keeps records of everything to do with your road towards better health and weight loss..
Skilled personal trainer with a good attitude towards life

Antonio Giambrone, Old Harlow

Dan knows how much I don't like the gym but he still motivates me to turn up every week. A blend of small challenges and encouragement has helped me achieve my goals and for the first time I have made long term sustainable change to my fitness and overall health and well being.

Mary Compton, High Wych

Tom & Dan are amazing! I have so much fun in the hour of pain I get twice a week!! I feel so much more energized and actually look forward to working out now!!

Lisa Moir, Fitness & Toning, The Matchings

Since I started training with Tom Richards Personal Training, I have caught the fitness bug which I didn't believe was possible after years of trying to get fit. The sessions are motivating, enjoyable and there hasn't been a time since I started where I haven't looked forward to the next one. They have shown me that I can achieve more than I imagined and have helped me achieve targets I never believed I could. I have gained in confidence and would recommend these guys every time.

Pailin Myson, Weight Loss & Fitness, Harlow

Been using Tom for 18 months now which given my previous motivation for the Gym speaks volumes to his ability as a Trainer


Ryan Kelly; Weight Loss & Toning, Sawbridgeworth

In the time that I have been trained by both Tom and Dan, I have always felt positively challenged and personally supported. They have been sensitive to, and understanding of, my complex personal circumstances and have still made me feel motivated to work hard. Even in the breaks I have had to take in my training, Tom has kept in touch, and checked up on how I'm doing. I like to work hard when I train and I have made steady, positive progress every time. I really can't recommend them enough really. If you're looking for committed, personable, motivating trainers to help achieve your goals, whatever they are, I'd definitely recommend these guys.

Above are a couple photos of me in Orlando two years ago. I didn't realize how badly I had let myself go. Jan 14 I thought I need to change and found Tom Richards - PT. We worked on my fitness until I went away in July 14' for 3 months, until September 14'. I then came back in September and we set a goal of being in shape for when I go away in July 15'. I think it is safe to say there are some minor differences! What I have done has been a life style change and if I can do it anyone can do it. This is only on training 3 hours weights per week. The rest is in the kitchen. I have learnt lots on the way & met some great people down the gym as well. Even if this inspires just one of you to get fit & lose weight it will be worth it. A very big thanks goes to Tom, without you I couldn't have done it.

Ian Gilder; Weight Loss & Aesthetics, Harlow

I have really enjoyed the training, it has been hard but rewarding at the same time. I can unreservedly say that I have exceeded my goals, Losing close to 5 stone and 10 inches off my waist in under 4 months was far better than I could have imagined possible when starting at a point where I could hardly run 100 meters. Now being able to cover 5 miles at a decent pace is all I could have asked for.

I am really pleased with the results and am looking forward to carrying on and increasing muscle definition and losing the last few pounds that I feel need to go.

You have been fantastic during my training sessions I have never cancelled a session because you have over worked me nor because I am getting bored which I am sure would have happened had I been training myself. I will continue to book/rebook sessions for as long as I can.

Jon Franklin; Weight Loss and Fitness, Sawbridgeworth

I have recommended 2 people to Tom's Business, one being my boyfriend who is a nervous 'gym goer' and has had a bad experience with trainers in the past. He has used trainers that focus on getting through the session rather than teaching a proper technique. As someone that has never exercised before and is very conscious and apprehensive of being trained, he has thoroughly enjoyed Tom's technique and has signed up to 10 sessions. I would definitely recommend Tom & Dan, even if it's just to meet them for a consultation, you can get a feel for how they train and how they will work best for you. 

Tracey Brennan; Toning & General Fitness, Old Harlow


'I train several times a week with Dan and I thoroughly enjoy training with him.  Dan is very supportive and keen for you to achieve your results and targets.  He is firm but encouraging and we always have a laugh in every session.  I have trained for a number of years but in the six months I have been training with Dan I have achieved my goals faster than before!  Dan is very conscientious, professional in his approach and always explains the exercises in a clear and easy way to understand.  The sessions are varied and you never do the same session twice so you never get bored with 'the same old routine!  I would highly recommend Dan if you are looking for a great Trainer as part of the Tom Richards Personal Training Team, he will expect you to work hard but you get lots of support and plenty of banter in return!'


Julia Haines-Daniels; Shaping & Toning, Bishops Stortford



'I've really enjoyed the Sessions so far - Tom is Friendly but Professional and pursues my Goals with Clear Plans and Instructions. He is encouraging at all times and I always feel challenged yet accomplished. I am fitter than I expected to be by now and can feel the progress that I've made. I will continue to have Sessions with Tom on a permanent basis as part of my Fitness Routine, as it's the perfect way to integrate a busy lifestyle with keeping fit.'


Nikki Baines; Fitness & Toning, Epping / Matching



'I really enjoy the Training Sessions that I have with Tom. After just 8 Weeks of Training I have definitely noticed a difference, I feel a lot better about myself and my general shape is improving. I feel much stronger, and this will only increase as time goes on. I definitely feel the benefits of Training with Tom in my Training Sessions, I would not get the same results on my own and would not push myself as much. Tom certainly pushes me, all in the name of results which is good. I'll be keeping up the sessions with Tom until I reach my goal - Which is to look like Arnold in the old days! Benefits so far have been continual sessions, structured training plans and accurate food menus etc. I would definitely recommend Tom as a Personal Trainer.'


Nick Stockwell, Bodybuilding, Sawbridgeworth



'I've only been training with Tom for 4 weeks, but have already started to develop tone and bodyshape, and have lost over half a stone!'
