Lloyd Cowan
Head of Sprints at British Athletics & Coach to Olympic 400m Champion Christine Ohuruogu

“I have known Mark for a number of years and have had the pleasure to coach him 2008-2010 in that time he showed everything you would want from an athlete he was focused very good at paying attention to detail and was a really hard worker. Mark was always on hand to encourage the training squad in sessions even when he was suffering from the effects of our very intensive sessions, which led me to believe he was destined to be involved in sport and the fitness industry once he eventually hung up his spikes. We continue to work together helping young athletes with their progression in sport.."

"Running a business can provide a quite stressful lifestyle, and in order to handle the demands I simply needed to get in shape. Findlays Fitness not only helped me increase my fitness, strength and endurance but helped me stay focused mentally and inspired me to achieve my goals both inside and outside of the gym. Mark Findlay has a wealth of knowledge within the area of strength and conditioning training. He's a keen motivator and his style of training with a iron fist within a velvet glove is perfect for getting results".

Stefania Bello
Surrey Storm Netball Team

“I started training with Mark a few months ago as I wanted to increase my elastic strength and improve my on court performance. I knew him as a very driven athlete and knew he would bring that same dedication to his coaching. He didn't disappoint. The first few weeks were tough and DOMS was a regular visitor, and then the improvements kicked in. I was hitting PBs and this showed on court. I love the variety in what we do and despite knowing he is going to beast me, I look forward to each session as I know I will have achieved something by the end of each one. Mark is one of those few coaches that you really go all out and want to impress and as a result you get the improvements you're looking for".

Emma Staplehurst
Probation Officer

“I approached Mark Findlay for PT sessions because I did not feel very happy with my body, through age I have lost confidence in the way that my body has taken its form".

Having had PT sessions with Mark I have witnessed not only my body shape change, I have also felt that Mark has increased my motivation to train harder. I felt that he listened was attentive and maintained a firmness that I was comfortable with. As a result I am happier within myself both mentally and physically. I love my new shape and am motivated to continue to exercise.
