Petra has a great attitude to training. She explains everything clearly and gives you the confidence to “have a go”. Her words of encouragement help you to push yourself a little harder which gives you a great sense of achievement after the class has finished. I love her passion and enthusiasm 💪👍

I signed up with Petra 7 weeks ago following recommendation from my daughter. Over the years I have tried loosing weight by various methods but none lasted more than a couple of weeks. I am 58 years old and so was unsure whether lifting weights would be right for me as I d no experience of this type of exercise. However Im really enjoying and can see progress as the exercises are getting easier and I m able to do much more than when I started. The nutritional advice is easy to follow and means I m never hungry. My wins so far are - have lost a stone in weight - have dropped a dress size and had to buy new jeans ! - family and friends have noticed I ve lost weight - my knees would hurt climbing stairs are now pain free I feel I m now well on my way to more healthy life style and feel sure I ll get to my goal weight in the next few months. Thank you Petra !!

Petra's coaching style strikes the perfect balance between being relaxed and focused on achieving proper technique, which has definitiely helped me improve my form. Petra is also skilled at encouraging me to push myself outside of my comfort zone, and as a result, I have seen great improvements in my weight lifting. Additionally, Petra knows how to make the classes fun, which is a huge bonus! Her upbeat and positive attitude helps create a motivating and engaging environment. If you're looking for a knowledgeable, skilled, and motivating personal trainer, I highly recommend Petra! :)

I have recently completed the 6 week programme and was thoroughly impressed with Petra's professionalism and enthusiasm. The work outs were well balanced and progressively harder each week. The nutrition guides were easy to follow and have instilled healthy habits- much better than any other diets I have tried in the past. Petra shared podcasts each week which were informative and helpful, and she was very quick to answer questions and make adaptions as and when needed. I highly recommend Patra Bland Fitness for anyone looking to improve fitness, health and diet in a supportive and fun environment.

I can’t thank and recommend Petra Bland Fitness enough for getting me back into exercising. The sessions are tailored to my needs and modified around existing injuries so I can still train and not miss a session. I can train and plan my nutrition around my busy work and home life, making this the perfect way to stay fit and healthy.

I highly recommend PB Fitness. Petra has helped me get out of the middle-age/menopause rut by introducing strength training to my fitness routine and finding ways to tweak my dietary habits and diary routine. Petra has a wealth of knowledge. She analysed my daily fitness routine & dietary habits and kept me motivated throughout my 3 months with her, checking in weekly to make sure I was on track, tweaking anything that was not working, and building up my fitness routine. I now feel much stronger physically and more confident with strength training. Petra has also given me routines and advice to carry on my fitness journey for myself. If you are fed up with the short-term fads that inevitably do not work, but want sensible, friendly advice and assistance for sustained success in achieving your aims then check out PB Fitness & Petra. Thank you Petra.

I’ve been working with Petra for 9weeks and I can highly recommend her as a trainer. She has a much more holistic approach to fitness/nutrition and general wellbeing than I’ve experienced before. It’s not about fads and quick fixes, it’s about life changes. If you’re looking for help to not only reach short term goals but also create better life routines (that you actually enjoy) Petra is for you!

I have no hesitation in recommending Petra to anyone who is thinking of starting their weight loss journey. I can't praise her enough for helping me to achieve my own personal goals this year. I approached Petra as I wanted to tone up and loose body fat but was very apprehensive about it all, Petra put me immediately at ease. We chatted and she listened to what I'd like to achieve and then created a exercise and nutritional plan that was achievable for me based on my lifestyle. She introduced me to resistance training and got me to start lifting weights, this was a completely different type of exercise that I was previously used to and believe me, in the past (nearly 60 years) I've tried them all! I can honestly say I always looked forward to my PT sessions and soon started to see the results of my training plan. I also started to sleep better which is something I've always struggled with. I'm about to become a Nanny for the second time so please don't think you're too old to try something new, Petra will always adapt her workouts so you get the best from them without causing any injury or pain to yourself. She has also taught me to always look for the positives when things don't go quite to plan ! Thank you Petra.

When I first went to Petra I was not exercising at all and wanted to lose a lot of weight, having used to be very fit I just couldn't motivate myself to get moving but really wanted to. Petra worked with me to get me enjoying training again and believing in myself and then after thr first month when I was loving training again asked what my focus and goal was so I could start working towards it. I've lost weight, I've got stronger and fitter and I believe I can do it. Petra is easy to get on with, knows what she's talking about and is so encouraging its more like having a friend than an instructor. I've loved every step of my journey so far. Couldn't recommend Petra highly enough xx

Hi everyone, I thought I share with you my little journey to a new lifestyle and say massive THANK YOU TO PETRA for helping me to achieve this. It has all started almost 3 years ago, in September 2019. I am a mum of now 7 years old twins and after their birth I struggled to lose a weight. I was studying for the past 3 years as well as working full time so it was difficult to find a time for myself. And I was lacking energy to do anything. I was always bad with diets, never was able to follow one. I have tried a few, spend a bit of money on them but it wasn’t a long-term solution. I did not want to be on a diet anymore, I needed a plan which would specifically work for me and I would be able to follow around my daily life and there is where Petra came in and suggested to help me with my food choices, planning and changing few of my habits. The help came from a very busy mum, real and down-to-earth person who went through a similar journey and shared her own experience. I was able to relate to and in a way got inspired by it. She has created a plan for me, we chatted a lot and she helped me to find bit more time for myself. I have started to plan and prepare all my meals, concentrating on more healthy choices. I have started to move more, walk more especially because my new job is in the office. The first goal was to lose a weight and then slowly improve my fitness. Another reason why I needed a change, I wanted a change was to be able to keep up with my children and be healthier. I could see results after each month but the biggest change I guess everyone noticed was after 3 months. My energy levels increased too! I had a lot of motivation and almost daily checks from Petra from the beginning until I have formed a habit, I really needed it as beginnings can be tricky. Or at least it was for me, sometimes I just need bit of ‘telling off’ (not literally but in a good way 😊) and putting me on the correct path. And I still need it even after 3 years from time to time. I have slowly started with HIIT training few times a week. Last year I set myself a new goal – be as fit as I have never been. Petra created for me a new plan, mostly resistance training and I love it! I see the results! I eat healthier and my family too. Don’t get me wrong, I still have chocolate (my weakness) and a cake and a take-away but I have learnt to manage it. Just simply to say Thank you to Petra is not enough, she is always there for me, for the motivation, moral support, to listen to my frustrations…list is endless. So if you are someone who wants to change anything and don’t know where to start and how, I hope I helped you little bit to find the right person for the job 😊

THANK YOU TO PETRA for helping me to achieve this. Petra suggested to help me with my food choices, planning and changing few of my habits. The changes she suggested made me feel more energised and motivated.

Petra’s made me see my weight loss journey in a more healthy and sustainable way – my goals are more realistic and achievable and I’ve created healthy habits which will last a lifetime. Petra has helped keep me motivated and has made me enjoy exercising again! As someone who feels self conscious when exercising in front of other people, I feel completely comfortable around her.

Jana Szaszova

In a short amount of time she has transformed my approach to health and nutrition.
She is incredibly supportive and has a really positive approach to coaching which is motivational, encouraging and realistic!
Her work out plans focus on building at your pace and really cementing technique and form which is so refreshing. She really looks towards the longevity of health and fitness.

Faith Walsh

Petra has a very individual based approach, on what the client’s needs are and not her own agenda. she listens to your ideas and asks probing questions to make you think about what it is you want to achieve. she is also very motivating and pushes you to get the workout done.
