8 months of training, if you work this hard, you can get the ProBalance results...
Belinda Hanks (Confetti.co.uk Editor)
Picking a personal trainer is a crucial decision for anyone serious about getting in shape, training for a big event or nursing themselves back from injury. Having seen the ProBalance team in action, I'd recommend anyone to choose them. One-on-one professional advice from sportsmen who have been there and done that. A private gym to use in the centre of Manchester City Centre at your convenience. 24/7 availability.
I got in shape with the help of trainer Andy and the VibroGym.
It was unconvential training to say the least, but really helped
me nurse my lower back to health and gave me the energy to do more
and more exercise. Having one-on-one direction and privacy made
all the difference to my recovery. I am now at a point where I am
able to motivate myself and train alone, but always use the trainers
at ProBalance to give me an extra boost and added advice whenever
I need it, especially now I'm getting married and need to stay in
shape for the big day.
I found them helpful, friendly, and informed. Thanks guys.
This lady (Michelle) was responsible for getting me into shape for my wedding last week! It was a challenge (I smoke, avoid exercise and have been known to eat 3 curries in one week) met with enthusiasm. As a member of various gyms i never actually attended; sessions with Michelle were different. Instead of daunting they were made fun and I was encouraged to reach my goal through support and laughter. I credit this lady with not only helping me look fabulous on my big day but changing my attitude towards fitness. Having only intended to train in the 3 months up to the wedding. Michelle now has a long term client and lifelong friend! Thank you once again Michelle for you patience and support. Love the new Mrs Mendoros xx

Andy was my trainer for many years before I flew off to Central
America to work on the Panama Canal expansion project. I am not
a naturally athletic person, but Andy's subtle influence got me
running, circuit training and thinking about my health generally.
He is certainly the best personal trainer that I know and I hope
to work with him again when I return to the UK.
Fran Eccles-Bech (Executive Director
- Manchester Law Society)
I have known Andy for nearly a year now. He rather foolishly took
me on to train me for the BUPA Manchester 10k! I could not have
done it without him.
His enthusiasm for everything he gets involved with is incredible.
He just oozes confidence and personality and is always so passionate
about his work. Andy is a fantastic personal trainer and is very
enthusiastic and certainly motivated me to exercise which is a feat
He is a master at making people feel at ease when in his company
with his very down to earth approach and what he doesn't know about
personal training, exercise and nutrition is not worth knowing.

Family Department - Pannone LLP)
Andy is the best trainer I have ever used. He is knowledgeable and
will devise the right programme for you whether you just wish to
get fit/lose weight, recover from an injury or train for a marathon.
Stephen Poole (Mayor of Tameside
I am 36 years old and Andy has been my personal trainer for 3 years
now. In that time, I have achieved noticeable and commended improvements
in both stamina & endurance through cardio training and strength
capability through work with weights. Improvements have been sensibly
gradual, with staged increases to push me further as ability allows.
The atmosphere is good and my results are monitored per session
so I can see the real progress I am making, which in turn is a tremendous
boost to self-esteem and confidence. People really do comment on
the improvements to my physique and general fitness. Andy is a great
personal trainer. He has a terrific, friendly personality, he never
pushes you further than you can go, but he does constantly encourage
you to develop your potential, in line with the goals you have agreed
for your personal training. I like to try new things too and there
is no shortage of ideas and methods with which to enhance my workouts.
Dr Chris Gordon (Ex Deputy Mayor
and retired Consultant Clinical Endocrinologist)
Three years ago, at the age of 56, I finally decided that my lack
of fitness and the high stress levels involved in my work required
me to have a major change in my lifestyle. During the three years
I have been training once a week at Pro Balance with Andy, I have
lost 17 pounds in weight, changed my body fat from 28% to 16% and
am, and feel, fitter that I have been for twenty years. Having spent
30 years in the NHS telling others to look after themselves, I finally
took my own advice and can honestly say that it was the best thing
I have done for years. The most important part of the training,
however, is the tremendous fun and enjoyment I have whilst exercising.
Andy is a great and innovative trainer and never allows me to get
bored with the regime. This means that I look forward to my sessions
at the gym, not something that I would have thought five years ago.
You are never too old and never too unfit to start being healthy.
Trust me, Im a doctor!
Rob Davies (Promotions Company Director)
For a couple of years, I had been a constant 13 stones in weight,
and was aware that for my age and height, I should have been lighter.
Even though I am always on the go, busy running around, my physique
did not change. Putting on another few pounds by comfort eating
did me no favours, and then developing gout I knew I had to act
I contacted Pro Balance and Andy Jeffries became my personal fitness
instructor. Three months later I was under 12 stones and far better
physically and mentally. Due to my actions people are so surprised
and pleased for me, and comment on my achievement. It is hard to
believe that after only 10 weeks, I had lost a stone and a half.
I cannot thank Andy enough for his patience, support and help with
my regime. He comes well recommended!
Javaid (I.T. Trainer)
I have been coming to Pro Balance for 15 months and in that time
have achieved a weight loss of over 3 Stone. As someone who hate's
gyms and finds it very hard to get motivated to exercise, this is
a great result for me. I would recommend Pro Balance to anyone!
