At Nxtep Personal Training, you will have a training programme written specifically for you. This is key in achieving your desired results.
Your Personalised Gym Programme
As part of your tailored training programme, you will be given workouts that are specifically designed to meet your abilities, needs, and goals, along with a meal plan that will complement your exercise regime with the right nutritional balance.
We will arrange a time for you to speak with one of our personal trainers, who will carry out a complimentary Initial Consultation that can be accomplished online, over the phone or in person, to assess your basic training goals, needs and any other things we should know.
The next step is to come in for your more thorough comprehensive consultation where we will ask you to carry out some basic movements and exercises to assess your fitness levels and whether you have any physical restrictions or injuries, as well as discuss your lifestyle, diet, set your goals and more. If you are there in person for your initial consultation, you may be able to do your Comprehensive Consultation immediately after.
Comprehensive Personal Training Consultation
The Comprehensive Consultation will help your trainer understand where you currently are, where you want to get to and how best to help you get there, so that we can build your Personal Training Plan. This comprehensive consultation will cover the following:
Body Composition Analysis
Functional Movement Screen
Identification of Barriers
Objectives for Personalised Training Programmes

If you want to get fit, build muscle or lose weight but you’ve never been to a gym or exercised much in your life, you might not know which exercises to do, how much of them to do, when to do them, or even what your diet should look like. By hiring a personal trainer, a complete beginner never has to think about any of the above! At Nxtep we train absolute beginners and athletes alike.

Our corporate personal training programs for businesses are designed to help employees improve their overall health and well-being, and are often provided as a benefit by the company, or simply as a one-off team building exercise. The goal of these programs is to help employees maintain healthy habits and lifestyles, which can benefit both the individual and the business as a whole. We can provide fitness sessions in your workplace, in a nearby location such as a park, or small groups of employees can visit our studio in Knutsford on a regular basis. Call us today for a chat about your business’s needs, and we can put together a bespoke package and arrange a visit.
Both exercise and nutrition are essential elements of a healthy lifestyle, as proper nutrition is vital to provide the body with the necessary nutrients for daily functioning, energy, and overall well-being. Combining personal training with nutrition helps you reach your fitness goals, leading to a healthier and more fulfilling life.
At Nxtep Personal Training, all of our plans include both personal training and meal plans which cater to different lifestyles and fitness goals. Our certified trainers are also nutritionists who work closely with you to ensure you achieve your desired results through following your bespoke personalised training and nutrition plan designed especially for you.

Small group personal training is simply sharing one personal trainer between a maximum of 6 people. You save money by splitting the cost, while benefiting from the enhanced motivation provided by the group setting. Either book as a group, or join an existing group and make new friends. Alternatively, if you’d rather have personal training with just one other person (your partner, a friend or even a colleague), you can try personal training for couples.

Many people want to improve their appearance and have specific goals of increasing muscular definition and losing fat. A combination of exercise and diet can help achieve stronger, firmer looking muscles and a toned physique.
What Your Personal Training Programme Will Consist of:
You need three main components in your core training program regardless of whether you wish to lose weight, get healthy, or simply improve your general physical fitness:
Weight training: If you’re just starting out, you don’t have to lift heavy weights or spend a lot of time on weight training. But you must lift some – even light resistance training is good. Strengthening your muscles will make daily tasks easier, and increasing your muscle mass will help you increase your metabolic rate and therefore burn more calories.
Cardio training: A cardio workout is any activity that gets your heart rate up, such as walking, jogging, cycling, and high-intensity interval training. Warming up with light cardio (e.g. 5 to 10 minutes) is always a good idea regardless of your exercise.
Flexibility training: Exercises require you to be flexible enough to perform the full range of motion. When you stretch after exercising, your flexibility improves, and your body recovers faster. People sometimes set aside a day for flexibility, but stretching should be incorporated into each workout without needing a separate workout.
Some people believe it is best to do only cardio or strength training on certain days. However, if you even just moderately fit, you can do these exercises together as part of a single session. Our bespoke personal training programmes will consist of varying amounts of the 3 types of training above, tailored specifically for you, your abilities and your goals.
Whether you choose our one-to-one personal training where you can choose between 4, 8 or 12 sessions per month or our semi-private personal training in a very small group, where you will attend the gym for a PT session 3 days per week, the care, attention to detail and quality of coaching you receive will be the same.
Maintaining motivation is perhaps the biggest challenge people face when working toward their fitness goals. The sun can make going out with your friends for that “just one drink” more tempting than going to the gym.
However, you are statistically far more likely to show up if someone you have paid to help you, and who you have built up a positive relationship with, is expecting you to.
It is human nature to try harder when people know that someone is watching them, so a personal trainer will help you stay motivated during your sessions as well. Training with friends can be better for motivation than training alone, but a personal trainer will not allow you to miss a rep when they are watching whereas your friend may be more forgiving!
Even if you lack confidence or feel low, your trainer will always be there to help you. You will receive constant feedback and unconditional support from your trainer because your success is the most important thing.
I signed up for the 6 week body transformation initially to help me get my pre baby body back after gaining a lot of weight through pregnancy. I lost 8.6kgs in the 6 weeks and have since renewed my membership to continue with my progress and I’m almost down 10kgs in total only 2kgs away from my pre pregnancy weight. I have always hated going to the gym and would dread going initially but now I am 8 weeks in, training 3x per week and feeling fitter and much happier in myself it is something I definitely want to continue. I feel it has really changed my lifestyle and I am making healthier choices everyday with a much more positive outlook, my family have commented that the old Hannah is back as before I felt I’d lost myself since becoming a mum for the first time. Chris and Luca are incredibly knowledgeable about anatomy which was very important to me after having a C-section and I have seen huge improvements in my core and lower back stability. I am also enjoying the new friends I am making from the sessions and never thought I’d say it but I’m looking forward to continuing the training long term and being in the best shape of my life!!
I've really enjoyed the community at Nxtep. I've never been this thrilled get up before 7am to attend the gym. Chris and Luca are brilliant and I feel I've come so far in the year since I started coming. Looking forward to more progress and the pride that comes with working hard
I initially joined Nxtep to get a better grip on my fitness levels after yo-yoing for years with sporadic classes and runs. It was an excellent decision as the sessions are three times a week which quickly got me in a good rhythm. Chris and Luca are both fantastic and very patient with a newbie like myself who had never lifted weights before. They have really helped me understand fitness and weight lifting a lot better. They also adjusted any exercises based on my capabilities as I had an injured shoulder for a while, and with the rehab exercises they gave me that’s now back to normal. I can’t recommend Nxtep enough!
I've been working with the guys at Nxtep for about a year now; I originally joined thinking it would be a short-term thing to lose weight for my wedding.A year later and I'm married, 12kg lighter than when I first started, lifting much heavier weights and am in much better shape in general. Chris and Luca have been amazing with my training; they always challenge me to try new things and to push further, which is really helpful for someone who's training has always seemed to plateau in the past.They've also taught me about health and fitness as a lifestyle; there's so much more to it than lifting some weights or constantly being on a diet, and they always keep things new, fun and flexible. They're also really helpful and approachable guys; I've messaged them lots of times to ask for training tips and advice when I'm going to the gym outside of training hours, and they're always more than happy to help.
I first met Chris in January 2020. I was 12 weeks pregnant with my first child. As a trained dancer, and teacher I was hoping to maintain my levels of fitness whilst minimising the risks of my pregnancy. My early dance training concentrated on training my limbs, while often neglecting my ‘centre’ or ‘core’. It wasn’t until a back injury in 2012 due to weak lower back muscles that my approach to training changed. When I first found out about my pregnancy, I worried about my back and how to keep it strong.Chris helped me through my pregnancy teaching me safe ways of keeping my core strong, helping with my postural alignment as well as addressing some muscular imbalances that I wasn’t aware I had. Most importantly, Chris gave me the confidence to continue training through pregnancy. I knew I was in safe hands. Chris is phenomenally knowledgeable in how our bodies work.May 2022, I am currently pregnant with my second child and still continuing to train with Chris at Nxtep. Luca has also joined the team and is a fantastic addition. They are a great team, and I am very lucky to be trained by them both. I would highly recommend anyone thinking about pre or post natal pregnancy training to consider Nxtep.
Before starting at Nxtep I would go through a cycle of starting to get fit, injuring my back, then avoiding exercise for fear of making it worse. The same happened when I started here, with my over eagerness to improve leading to the same old injury. Chris and Luca kept me motivated and coached me through the recovery process, allowing me to strengthen the areas susceptible to injury and enabling me to carry on where I’d previously have given up. Now I’m lifting ~100kg more than when I first started and the past few years of persistent back injury seem a distant memory. The guys have helped me with my nutrition, my outlook and overcoming what I previously thought I couldn’t. I can’t thank them both enough!
I’ve been working with Chris and the team at Nxtep, and the initially just wanted to get stronger and fitter somewhere local when the gym near work was no longer an option due to the pandemic. I know feel really confident handling weights and my diet. I recently saw myself in a film from before I started at Nxtep and other people couldn’t recognise me from me who didn’t know me well so, it definitely works! Highly recommended.
Training at Nxtep during Covid was tricky but Chris and Luca made it work! Started with training outdoors in the carpark before we were allowed to move indoors, it was always fun and I feel I made real progress.It never felt just like a business and always felt more caring, I was also doing it as part of my DofE to which Luca/Chris were very helpful with.I've had to stop due to other focuses in life but I've got some real fond memories of the time and am hoping to go back later if I can!
Wanted to improve all round fitness especially strength and conditioning so contacted & met with Chris.....was very impressed with his approach and was motivated to getting started & looking forward to the challengeChris was fundamental to me in making the nutrition and exercise changes required to achieve goals.... inspiring, motivational, encouraging & supportive he is great to work with......regular tracking & updates help me to stay focused..... Chris is easy to get along with and the sessions are challenging but enjoyable.....
