What People are saying about PT Stef

"Professional, dependable, committed and focused are just some of the words that come to mind when I think of Stef. I had the pleasure of working with Stef and experiencing his business from the initial fitness program, progressing to the complete holistic CHEK program. I would highly recommend Stef as a personal trainer and for anyone truly committed to their health I would definitely recommend his CHEK program for overall well-being and fitness." - Mike (Corrective Exercise with Nutrition & Lifestyle Coaching Client)

"I highly recommend Stef. He volunteers to help assess the movement, posture, and core of Gulf for Good challengers in the lead up to their challenge. He is very insightful, knowledgeable and helpful. Also, pleasant to do the session with. Thanks Stef!" - Jen (Gulf for Good Challenger)  

"I met Stef after my body had crashed. It was weak, full of pain and my heartbeat was to the roof. I was always out of breath, had gained so much weight and nothing seemed to work. Stef is patient and calm. He navigated all the challenges that my body was presenting and adapted the program to the needs of my aches. I now feel strong, fit, and getting stronger everyday. Stef you are a hero! Thank you, thank you, thank you!" - Rouba (Personal Training Client)

"I avoided running like the plague. It was boring, I found it hard and most of all no music ever motivated me to keep up the distance. With the support of Stef, running was brought into my personal training regime and we worked closely together to start doing 100 metre sprints, then 500 metres, then 1 kilometre without stopping, three times per week. Three months later we completed 'together' the Dubai ABRaS 10 km run and I will never forget Stef supporting me under the hot Dubai sun. It was the slowest 10km he ever did but I finished my first ever 10km that day and I am grateful that Stef taught me how to run. I now have participated in a few 10kms within Dubai, collecting the participating medals along the way." - Leanne (Personal Training Client)

"I really enjoyed my workouts with Stef. As he is a runner himself, Stef understands the needs of one (aspiring) perfectly. His workouts have al. ways been varied, fun and very results oriented. I lost 5kgs in 3 months while increasing my stamina and speed of running significantly!" - Gaurav Khemani (Personal Training Client)

"The outcome of my one on one personal training sessions with Stef in the gym have really started to pay dividends. I am seeing, and feeling my level of fitness improving significantly. At least twice a month I have a sports massage in the privacy of my apartment. The positive effects and results are almost immediate and both muscular stiffness, and aches and pains are gradually disappearing. The other outcome is that my new, improved flexibility has greatly facilitated my one on one training sessions. It is not often that I write testimonials, and this one is completely unprompted by Stef. I highly recommend Stef to other clients. My only regret: I’m sorry that I didn’t start these sessions earlier." - Barry Evans (Personal Training Client)

"The experience we had with our daughter in Stef’s course was awesome on two different levels. First, he has a very good intuitive contact with young kids and he is able at first to gain their confidence. Secondly, what our daughter achieved in two courses was terrific. I must confess she is nearly able to swim now and she is enthusiastic to start a new course, and is requesting for Stef’s course every day. I strongly recommend this swimming teacher and wish to have additional courses for our daughter." Michelle Wibaux (Mum of Swimming Child, Clementine)

"Stef took time to discuss with my son and my daughter to improve their feelings with water. After only three lessons my four-year old French son was jumping into water and appreciated swimming under water even without knowing perfect English. At five lessons he was making flips as easy as he can walk. You can easily imagine how happy my husband and I are, and how impressive Stef is as a swimming instructor. My three-year old daughter makes big step after big step at every lesson. Thank you Stef for your fantastic and genuine job with our children. They believe in you, trust in you and so try their best." - Cecile Guillemyn (Mum of Swimming Children, Baptiste and Ambre)

"A friend recommended Stef to me and assured me I would achieve results quickly – I wasn’t disappointed. Every training session is different. We always do free weights, core and some cardio, and mix it up with boxing, TRX or Tabata. My weight is down, my fitness levels are up and I have so much energy. For the first time in 20 years I can actually run several kilometres and I feel super fit. Stef is very encouraging and supportive, and offers realistic advice about diet and lifestyle, without being ridiculously strict. Stef is as keen as I am to achieve results and regularly assesses my weight and measurements. In doing this, I stay focused, having clear attainable goals." - Laura McDonald (Personal Training Client)
