Axel has a down-to-earth, no-nonsense approach with great big splashes of dry humor making it easier to get up on cold, dark mornings for training. In the 6 months I've been working with him I haven't had one repeat training session - the variety is incredible which really helps to keep me motivated. I can honestly say that I've achieved the best ever results with my body and health since working with Axel.

Sarah - Life Coach

Axel is endlessly patient and encouraging and always happy to explain the finer points of an activity. Even in groups he pays individual attention to ensure each person works to their potential. His training sessions include a mix of strength and cardio activities that give a good all-over workout. Boxing and kick-boxing are a particularly fun way to blow off steam. What´s more, his uniquely German sense of humor means we always have a laugh.

I have always had trouble sticking to an exercise routine long term.  Axel's approach is focused and effective and I have seen and felt results.  He keeps his sessions fresh and is always incorporating new techniques which keeps me interested.  He is also one of the nicest trainers I have encountered who finds a way to bring some humour to the hard work! I have trained with him now for two years and dont plan to stop.

I have trained with Axel for over 6 months and I'm hooked. No two sessions have ever been the same and the variety and intensity has toned and strengthened my body like never before. He has a 'lifestyle' approach to fitness and went out of his way to help me prepare for a half marathon. I had never been one for early morning exercise, but his encouragement and sarcastic charm certainly help.

I started training with Axel in mid-2012 with 1 hour sessions three times a week. I have nothing but good things to say about Axel and the sessions. Every day is different and Axel creates a great mix of exercises which not only work on different areas of the body but also keep the mind from boredom. In the past I have struggled to maintain an exercise routine but with Axel as a positive motivator and the variety of the sessions I haven't stopped! The result; weight loss and mental and physical energy. I cannot recommend Axel enough.

Dave Randall, Support Services Officer

My time training with Axel has been great. He has been an excellent trainer. He adapts the programs to suit each persons individual needs allowing new starters to not feel left behind by the more experienced people. He speaks with each individual training to ensure they are okay and not feeling out of their element. The programs are suited to anybody whether they are fit or not. Axel is a very personable trainer and easy to get along with. He is happy to answer any questions you may have and offers support to help you reach your goals.

Although I try to keep fit through a variety of activities, such as running, yoga and team sport, I find my best workout of the week is with Axel. I am a bit of a plodder when it comes to running, but I have already cut 22 seconds off my per/km running time in just a few weeks!! I really like the way he is able to accommodate for the various fitness levels within the group, and encourages us all to do our best.

Axel has been an inspiration to myself and my partner over the last year.  As we embarked on a new, healthier approach to life he was always there to keep us on track.  Each session was fun, and challenging, and I can honestly say that in 12 months of training no two sessions have been the same.  It’s not easy to get up at 05.40 twice a week but Axel made it worth it.  We always left thankful that we had dragged ourselves out of bed.
