Welcome to Real Fitness

Real Fitness is about finding out who you are and who you want to be, and helping you achieve your dreams and goals.

We are an independent fitness and training team who work with the Totterdown Gym in South Bristol and also arrange outdoor training programmes. At Real Fitness, we have some pretty simple core principles:

* Fitness for everyone

* Work hard and play hard

* Workouts for real life

Real Fitness is not just about bodybuilders.

While we do offer personal weight training and muscle building regimes, the majority of our clients are not bodybuilders. We cater for all needs and all levels, whether it is looking to lose some weight, get in shape for a holiday or for wedding day, or to get fitter or to apply specific training methods to become better at a sport. We are for all people who care about their health and their training.We specialise in weight loss, muscle building, strength training, fitness and nutrition.

Work Hard, Train Hard, Play Hard

Real Fitness was founded to put our philosophies into practice. We want to offer the most comprehensive packages offering personal training, outdoor training, hard as nails suicide camps, beach/wedding fitness regimes, circuit training, weight control, and junior box-it.

This philosophy is simple: work hard and have fun while doing it. By keeping it fun and building a sense of team spirit; especially in our classes, we make losing weight and getting fitter a positive life event and that’s something we should never forget. Fitness programmes, weight training, getting slimmer and building core strength is about improving your life.

keeping it real

The final part of our core philosophy is reality. That’s why we’re Real Fitness. We understand that there is a major difference between a professional athlete and an everyday person trying to improve themselves. Real Fitness programmes are based around making small and incremental changes to your daily routine and lifestyle. We aim to fit our personalised and tailored regimes, activities and sessions around your unique needs and schedules, so you can reach your goals without completely upsetting the rhythms of your life.
