MANDY M - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“For many who are less fit like me the thought of any activity is enough to keep you on the sofa. This year I found the strength to give it a go with Peak Performance and I wish that I had started it years ago. I will never be that racing snake nor do I aspire to be, for me the improvement in my general and mental health is worth far more. Each session is different which keeps your mind occupied. Nick fosters a very supportive atmosphere where everyone works to their own level and everyone is welcome. The key is improvement to reach your Peak Performance. Nick, thank you very much for your ongoing support and encouragement.”


DAVID A - PERSONAL TRAINING CLIENT

“I’ve always been active, but my past training has been somewhat lacking in structure. Having committed myself to competing in Ironman France 2019, I realised I needed help. Nick at Peak Performance has been meticulous in his planning and support; providing me with a phased and targeted training plan, which is varied, achievable and constantly seeks to measure improvements and adapt accordingly. Race day is still a way off, but I am confident, that with Nick’s ongoing support, I will reach the start line in the best shape possible.

In a world where being a Personal Trainer seems to be a fashionable career choice, with qualifications seemingly being bandied about by a lot of people with questionable subject knowledge or experience; You can be assured that Nick at Peak Performance is the real deal. With his knowledge and your hard work, success is unavoidable!”


ALI M - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

”I started with Peak Performance as I felt my gym lacked real inspiration and atmosphere. After the first session I knew that I had made a good choice. These sessions are great, everyone is welcoming. Every session feels like progress. It’s such an encouraging atmosphere - everyone works at their own level. I feel encouraged and I can feel the changes in my fitness. I have lost weight, gained fitness and my blood pressure has gone down. All positives. Onwards and upwards!”


TINA H - PERSONAL TRAINING CLIENT

“Having completed two half marathons, one with a plan from Nick and one without, I can honestly say what Nick does WORKS! Not only that, he is flexible and adaptable, sessions are always varied (even the runs are a different mix of speed work, hills, interval etc), and his easy chat is a good distraction from whatever exercise you are in the middle of!”


HARRY H - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“Although gruelling, Nick's sessions are immensely fun. He really hones in on the teamwork so everyone feels comfortable. The groups at Peak Performance are mixed ability but no one feels out of place. The fitness tests are a great way to track your fitness and I dare say most people improve each month. Due to uni, I see Nick fairly sporadically but every time I do see him I notice how it has helped me at work (I'm a landscaper). The music choice is questionable though...!”


KRISTINA G - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I started Peak Performance in January 2018 and the difference it has made to my life is amazing. I feel so much better about myself inside and out, I actually look forward to going and have made some great group training buddies. Every time I consider staying at home but make myself go I'm so glad I did. The constant change in routines, fun music and games make it different to your boring gyms, and Nick's puns never cease to amaze me... Highly recommend x”


DAVID S - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I have only been a member of Peak Performance for a short while and I have already noticed an improvement in my fitness and particularly my core strength. What I enjoy most is the time spent with the people in the group. I am always encouraged and I never feel as if I am behind everyone else. I also think that my own personal challenges are considered and that is reassuring. Group Training is one thing I look forward to every week.”


MANDY B - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I originally only intended to join while training for an upcoming OCR event... a year later I’m enjoying the group training sessions more than ever! There’s always a fantastic vibe in the group (even super early in the morning!) and Nick does a great job motivating everyone, mixing cardio and strength building. It’s really helped improve and maintain my overall fitness. Peak Performance brings the fun back into exercise and at the same time has the ability to push you to meet individual goals. Would highly recommend”


KATE N - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I started Peak Performance two years ago and it’s the only thing I’ve really stuck at fitness wise! I’ve achieved things I never thought I’d achieve - a 24k bike ride for a start! And numerous obstacle course races! And also my confidence has rocketed by being part of a community and I have made friends for life! I love every session hard or hard! Varied and fun but wake up with a different muscle aching everyday - I love that feeling :) ! I love Peak Performance - all ages and abilities attend and that’s what I love the most - being with people I wouldn’t usually come across! I love improving myself but I also love seeing others grow too. The support we all receive from Nick is encouraging, helpful and always appreciated! Peak Performance forever!”


MARY W - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I’ve been going to Group Training every week for three years now and Nick’s planning means no two sessions have ever been the same! The variety, camaraderie and sheer good fun makes it the perfect combination of brilliant all-round fitness and enjoyment.  Great if you have fitness goals in mind but also great if you just want to enjoy your exercise rather than dread it!”


ALEX H - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I started coming to Group Training sessions when my daughter was 6 months old. In three years, I’ve gone from a size 14 to size 10, lost two stone, and gone from not running at all to completing a half marathon and now training for a full marathon. But one of the best things is that my daughter sees lots of great examples of women doing sport and being healthy outdoors. She loves holidays when she comes to sessions too!”


ROSE S - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I’ve been attending the Saturday session of Peak Performance every week for 6 months and I love it! Don’t get me wrong, it’s blooming hard work (if you throw yourself into it) but it’s different every week and Nick always makes it fun...! It is brilliant for all ages and all levels of fitness as you can make your workout your own. I’ve lost weight, definitely improved my fitness and my core strength is so much better that I don’t get tweaks and pains from carting my kids around! If you’re thinking about coming along, go for it! There will be plenty of people ready to welcome you and support you along the way.”


CLAIRE G - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I have been attending Nick's sessions now since January 2015 and over this time have not only seen my fitness and energy levels spike to beyond anything I thought I was capable of, but my self-esteem and confidence have also shot through the roof. I cannot recommend Nick Smith enough, whether it be attending his Peak Performance sessions or his personal training sessions. 
As for the sessions themselves, I've never known such a friendly, happy bunch of people to work out with!”


SENGA M - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“A place to be you, make a change, have fun and feel better about yourself. The Peak Performance family are supportive, friendly and encouraging, lead by the best.. Nick Smith, his forever changing sessions to challenge you and keep you motivated, with songs that will drive you bonkers, songs that will inspire you and songs you won't get out of your head. A good place to get fit and stay fit both body and mind.. The best money I spend all month.”


TRACEY W - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I found Nick and all of the other attendees so helpful, knowledgeable and encouraging. I was worried about going being middle-aged and not at all fit. I was made so welcome and although others of course were much fitter and faster I was encouraged all the time. I love it!”


GILLY M - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I’ve been training with Nick/Peak Performance for more years now than I can remember. It’s the first fitness activity that I’ve stuck to for more than a few months. Why? Because what Nick provides is the perfect balance between fun, a challenge physically, and mental support. I felt able to push myself to start running at age 38(!) and after 18 months (and a race training plan from Nick) managed to run 2 marathons. They may say that life begins at 40, but I reckon life begins when you find the right trainer.”


TORI D - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“As a busy working Mum of two I didn’t ever feel like I had time to squeeze exercise into my daily routine, but since finding Peak Performance with Nick the flexibility of the morning sessions have allowed me to get my exercise hit and be back home before the rest of the house has even woken up! Not only do I feel much more motivated as a result, I also feel both physically and mentally stronger and have met a great bunch of people along the way. I would recommend Peak Performance to anyone looking to increase their energy levels and who enjoy fun, innovative workout routines with like-minded people.”


MARK H - GROUP TRAINING CLIENT

“I originally started with Peak Performance to just get fitter for a National three peaks challenge but having enjoyed the group training sessions so much, feeling the benefits & honestly feeling more energetic, I’ve just not stopped. There is a great variety to the sessions which keeps my interest each time & would strongly recommend to anyone.”
