What My Clients Say

Personal Trainer Perth | Steve Bonthrone Fitness

“Working with Steve was like counselling sometimes. He varied the sessions based on my ability and interest. He took me out running and the most important session was walking up Moncrieffe Hill. I said to Steve I feel like myself again during that session. He gave me a couple of tools to use when I was struggling with exercise and motivation. I found the sessions hard at times but never out with my ability, just pushing at my ability. He’s not one of these trainers who’ll shout or belittle you, not at all.

The one greatest result from working with Steve was the increase in my confidence, I hadn’t realised how low it was but having achieved so much with him, I felt mentally lighter and proud of myself. It wasn’t a goal we were working on but it made the biggest difference to me.”

“I had been running for a few years and not making much progress. Then I met Steve and after following his advice for just a few months I took 4mins off my 10k time. I feel stronger, fitter and am now training for my first marathon, something I wouldn’t have considered in the past, but with Steve’s help I know is achievable”

Personal Trainer Perth | Steve Bonthrone Fitness

“I have gone from an uncomfortable 12 to an uncomfortable 10. That’s a dress size down! I don’t really weigh myself as I become obsessed. I’ve also noticed a huge difference in my skin, I don’t feel the need to shovel on loads of make-up anymore!

The sessions have given me the motivation I was definitely lacking. If I hadn’t started, I’d be procrastinating and putting the gym off, not eating the right stuff and still drinking 4 cans of diet coke a day!! My other half has been really impressed with how dedicated I’ve been with eating lots of protein and veg, drinking more water and the circuit training 3 times a week. I have 3 kids and it’s been easy to follow although we do still tend to eat ice cream or cake after tea but not as much for me now!

Having these sessions, the knowledge and the support has been a life/waistline saver for me. Thank you!!”

“I’ve been working out with Steve twice a week for 5 weeks. I feel amazing, I’ve got so much more motivation and energy. I can definitely feel and see the difference in my body. Very happy :-)”

“Never thought I’d ever be able to run 5k, but that’s exactly what I did tonight with the 0-5k Group. Brilliant support, he makes you believe you can do it. I’d recommend Steve Bonthrone Fitness to anyone :-)”

Gill Nelson

“I like to try and keep myself active and decided that I’d like to get back out running. As I hadn’t done any running for a few years (and I wasn’t great even then), I decided to look out for a running club where there would be likeminded people, supporting each other and helping improve technique. After a little searching I came across Steve’s website and noticed the 0 – 5k in 5 weeks. This actually sounded perfect. I contacted Steve and was booked on the next block starting the following week!

There were 4 of us in the group, each with our own reason for doing it. Just as I hoped, it was a friendly, supportive group. Not pretentious in any way. We all had a bit of banter … it actually felt like we’d all known each other for years!
Over the 5 weeks we were given different challenges / tasks to help us improve our technique and find our ideal pace to enable us to run for longer. The distance was also increased a little each week, culminating in a full 5k run on week 5. I am so pleased to say I did it … I managed to complete the 5k in week 5! It was hard at times … particularly feeling exhausted after a busy day at work but I’m so glad I opted to join. I would highly recommend this group to anyone who perhaps hasn’t done any running for quite a while or who would like some help with technique”
