Allie - Helen is honestly incredible! I have been going to her outdoor classes for 18 months now and have never even considered another option for exercise! The classes are always different, fun and challenging in the best way! Being outside is also way nicer than a smelly gym, even in the winter!!

Emily - I’ve been to quite a few HG FIT classes and I absolutely love them. The sunrise fit class is such a great way to start the day. It’s a great/challenging workout which is fun and everyone is very welcoming. It’s different workouts every week too! Helen checks your form as you’re working out and makes tweaks where necessary! It’s also outdoors in the fresh air which makes a great change from being inside a gym! Look forward to more classes in 2024!

 

Indi - Where do I start with this review on such a fabulous trainer and a such a special and genuine person - Helen is truly one of a kind. Since joining Helen, not only have I gained confidence in exercising and becoming stronger (mentally and physically) I have also made a genuine friend. No two classes are the same of Helens and she is always striving to make each class different in a challenging and fun way. Helen encourages all abilities and never makes anyone feel like they cannot achieve that one burpee or that run to the tree and back or that perfectly formed squat. She makes exercise fun  - which makes you want to keep coming back to her classes! Helen’s passion not only exuded into the classes but also into the socials she organise, as well as all the money she raises for charity. You will most definitely not be disappointed if you come to join Helen classes – truly a wonderful lady and an exceptional trainer.

Kathryn - I‘ve been going to Helen’s sunrise fit and full body fit classes and would totally recommend to anyone. She makes exercise a really fun, enjoyable and rewarding experience (minus the burpees!) and the warm and friendly atmosphere she creates makes everyone feel really welcome. Helen makes an effort to get to know all of her clients and you can tell she really cares. She also pushes you and suggests more variations during the class for an extra challenge which I love. I’ve noticed a big difference in my fitness since I started training with Helen and always look forward to the classes - my boyfriend says I always come back buzzing afterwards, even when it’s cold and raining! A highlight this year was Helen brining water pistols to class to get us through the heatwave. Thank you Helen! 😊

Allie - I started the evening classes back in March and I love them and have barely missed a week! Helen has an amazing knack of getting you out of the I don’t want to exercise mood straight away! The classes are always super fun and varied, never repetitive, we always have such a laugh and everyone who attends are so lovely too. I always leave in a way better mood and am super grateful that she turns up for us rain or shine. Just don’t sit down otherwise it’s five burpees for all!!! :)

Catherine - Helen is the best kind of PT; fun, friendly, knowledgeable and really motivating. She encourages you to do your best (and then that bit extra!) with a real focus on improving your personal form. I love the group classes on the Common and would recommend them to anyone, wherever they are on their fitness journey!

 

Erica - Helen's classes are my favourite way to exercise! Love getting outside after a busy day at work, shockingly enjoy that especially in the winter! Helen always makes the classes different, they're challenging but not intimidating and there's such a fun friendly vibe. Especially enjoy boxing and circuits and would recommend the classes to anyone.

Miguel - I have been doing Helen's classes for a year or so (she can confirm it) and what I like the most is this vibe ... relaxed. She knows how to push you when needed but at the same time understands you, what is your pace and your mentality for exercising and this is what I like the most as I am really keen to do sports (been doing it since I was 9 years old) but "gym" classes are not my strong and every time I am doing one of Helen's classes I feel good and ... lazy as well and that's OKAY. I would recommend Helen for all this as you will have a funny group of people, some more keen some more relaxed but at the end you are exercising and that's the goal ... and of course, sometimes there might be a dog passing by :)

Gemma - I really enjoy Helen’s classes on the common, they’re really welcoming and have such a friendly atmosphere. Helen keeps the sessions varied and challenging, but also fun!

 

Rachel - I've been training with Helen for a couple of years and she's still coming up with ways to challenge and surprise me! She was an absolute saviour during lockdown moving all her classes online and keeping everyone motivated with her positivity and energy. Even in the cold and rain I cannot recommend her classes enough!

 

James - I've been working out in Helen's group classes for best part of 3 years. It's great working out in the fresh air with a great bunch of people. Helen adapts the classes to any fitness/ability level and it's always great fun and really satisfying.

 

Omar - I have been with Helen for over two and a half years. She has a variety of sessions to cater for different training styles. Her lessons are fun, exciting, and, most of all, enjoyable. In addition, Helen is extremely friendly and easy to approach; her vibrant, energetic persona reflects in the lessons and positively impacts classes. She is also caring and considerate and will adapt lessons to suit the client's needs. I highly recommend HGFIT. Sign up now!

 

Dan - I have been going to Helen’s excellent classes for nearly two years now and find they are perfect if you want an exciting, energetic and varied session - a world away from the monotony of the gym! Helen is a very good teacher and takes time with everyone to make sure they can do the exercises properly, whatever your fitness level or experience. She clearly takes a lot of time planning the classes, because they are always different, always fun and always leave you glad you attended. Cannot recommend highly enough!

 

Anna - I’ve been training with Helen for a couple of years including through COVID. She makes every session fun and challenging and the group has become a real community. Group training always felt intimidating to me but Helen makes it accessible, fun and so inclusive that I look forward to sessions even in minus degrees and snow. My strength and fitness has improved hugely since training with Helen and as a bonus I have a bunch of new friends.

 

Kirsty - Helen’s classes on Tooting common are brilliant. She is enthusiastic and encouraging and makes sure that everyone is included and monitored during the exercises. Her chatty and friendly approach is infectious and you can’t help but leave with a smile on your face. She’s helped me improve my fitness by telling me when to push myself to try and do more. I can’t recommend her classes enough - full body and circuits are firm favourites.    

Mona - I've been going to Helen's exercise classes for 4-5 years and I must say that every single class has been great in one way or another! I started with going to her Insanity and Piyo classes, then online during lockdown and now I try as much as I can to sign up to her classes on Tooting Common. Not one class is the same so you will never get bored, I always feel that I pushed myself but also that I can work at my own speed if I don't feel like I have the energy. Helen is an amazing trainer, she is very enthusiastic and positive!

Carri-Ann - I’ve been working out with Helen since the pandemic and my fitness has gone from “couch potato” to the best it’s ever been. She has boundless enthusiasm and I’ve made some great friends through her classes. Helen’s sessions on the common are pitched to all level of fitness with modifications based on ability and energy levels. I always come away feeling like I’ve done a great workout.

JJ - Great lady, love the vibes she brings to in person classes at the common. Definitely recommend.

 

Ellie - I’ve been doing Helen’s classes and PT for over a year now - couldn’t recommend them more!  Helen is fantastic at working around injuries and making sure everyone’s form is good whilst also making the sessions fun!

 

Joel - Helen creates such a friendly environment to all. Been to many of her online classes and the vibe is out of this world. Who knew you could have a work out, sweat loads and still have a laugh. She offers exercise at affordable prices, if you want to get fit, get in touch with HGFIT! If you have not been to one yet, why not?

Lizzy - I’ve absolutely loved Helen’s classes, both out on the common and online during lockdown. Helen has made keeping fit fun by making classes varied, inclusive and always being supportive and motivating, I never thought I’d actually look forward to working out in the rain!

 

Emily - Training with Helen is the perfect balance of fun and challenging. I've got so much fitter and enjoy excercise so much more thanks to both her classes and the 1:1 PT sessions I've had. Would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to get fit and meet lovely people who are encouraging to train with, rather than intimidating.

 

Laura - I've attended Helen's classes for years now and always enjoyed the challenge, but never appreciated them as much as during the last few years lockdowns! Even in tough times Helen is there to keep you motivated and feeling your best - physically and mentally - and I can't recommend her classes enough! She also teaches a variety of classes which meant alongside my usual go to HIIT workouts I got to try weighted workouts and yoga inspired classes which I Ioved! If you want to feel your best and be part of a fun and friendly group you can't do better than joining one of Helen's sessions!

 

Marco - I have started to train regularly with Helen. If you are looking for a training regime that improves both strength and cardio, look no further. Helen's your woman. She continues to deliver an effective training regime that has helped me build on my fitness goals week on week. The workout is enjoyable and the class is friendly and welcoming to people of all ages and abilities. I can't recommend it highly enough.

 

Rachel - I've been training with Helen for a couple of years and she's still coming up with ways to challenge and surprise me! She was an absolute saviour during lockdown moving all her classes online and keeping everyone motivated with her positivity and energy. Even in the cold and rain I cannot recommend her classes enough!

 

Gerda - I discovered workout sessions with Helen just after the second national lockdown. Got back to my pre-covid fitness level within 4 weeks. Love that she puts so much effort into planning - every class is different, I get the buzz from not knowing what's coming! Silly chats and positive energy makes the challenges so much more fun. Thanks Helen!

 

Carri-Ann - I used to hate exercising; I found the gym boring and lacked the motivation to go running in the depths of winter. Then I found Helen! Her classes are fun and her relentlessly upbeat energy keeps everyone motivated! I was worried about outdoor classes, having seen hard-core military fitness-type sergeant majors yelling at people on the Common but Helen’s classes are not like that at all. They are encouraging and positive, pushing everyone to achieve their best. Her classes are brilliant for mental health during these uncertain times, and particularly for those of us spending time working from home… they get you out of the house at the end of the day and are a chance to run-off all that pent-up energy- particularly Boxfit! Helen’s classes improved my physical fitness which has boosted my overall well-being. Thanks Helen!

 

Dan - I had never done outdoor exercise classes before going to Helen’s, but having enjoyed them so much I don’t think I would go back to a gym. The different daily sessions throughout the week mean there is a constant variety and Helen’s encouragement and expertise make them a joy to attend. My fitness levels were not good after a lazy lockdown, but these sessions have brought my health and strength up again. I would not hesitate to recommend Helen and her HG Fit classes to anyone, of any level. I enjoyed them so much, I even bought the T-shirt!

 

Kim - I am not a natural exerciser in the “workout” or “training” sense. But the fun, enthusiasm, and sense of community that pervade Helen’s classes has kept me coming back over and over and has seen me do many a thing I swore I never would (or could). Her positivity, energy, and kooky approach to life make her classes hugely enjoyable and mean that the people you will meet in the classes are there for the experience as much as they are for the training. Helen offers something for everyone and I have no doubt that trying out her classes will lead to doing more. Come join the HGFitties (as she recently realised we could be called) and you will not regret it.

 

Kath - I found Helen on ClassPass......and hands down it’s been the best outdoor fitness class I’ve ever done. Immediately put at ease by her friendliness, the classes are ram packed filled with different circuits, you never know what’s coming next which subsequently makes the class fly by. She’s professional, encouraging and just a genuinely nice person to be around......all this filters through her class members making it the most welcoming class EVER. Thank you Helen! You’re the best!! Xx

 

Nicola - I've loved going to Helen's classes for the past year now - longest I've stuck with any exercise class so that's saying something!! She grades the programmes well so they are nice and accessible if you are a beginner, but challenging enough if you want more. Her fun personality makes working out seem a lot more entertaining, and her endless energy keeps you motivated. Would definitely recommend trying her classes.

 

Jonathan - Helen's enthusiasm in her classes is fantastic and it really helps to keep you motivated when your feeling the burn. She's a great PT and I've seen a big increase in my fitness and conditioning since taking part in her classes. Highly recommended.

 

Heather - Helen is a great trainer. I've been attending her classes for two years now and each week there's something different to keep the classes varied and enjoyable. I'd highly recommend Helen's classes for a fun and challenging workout!

 

Sally - First experience of bootcamp and 9 of 10 sessions in I'm still enjoying going. Each week is different, each week uses (clearly) dormant muscles as indicated by that wonderfully reassuring pain in the days that follow. Helen is friendly, welcoming, active, encouraging, enthusiastic, creative and the first person to actually get me doing proper burpees.

 

Ruth - Amazing classes on Tooting Bec common. Helen is a brilliant instructor.

 

Erica - Really enjoy Helen’s Bootcamp classes, they’re tough but such a friendly atmosphere. Helen is really encouraging and she mixes it up so every week is different. It’s also good to get outside after spending all day in the office!

Chris - The fact that Helen has got someone so incredibly lazy to return every week is testament to what a good class she runs.... highly recommended.

Sara - Helen is a brilliant PT and her classes are always motivating, fun and educational. I have been going to her classes for years now and she has really helped me understand fitness and nutrition while being open and friendly. The classes are offer huge variation which means you can challenge all parts of your body whist also being a fantastic place to be socially. I couldn't recommend her classes or her PT services more. She will get you the results you want and as an extra bonus you'll make a great friend!

 

Lauren - I love outdoor fitness and have been doing it for 5 years. I joined Helen's group classes about 6 months ago and then PT 3 months ago. The classes are challenging and fun, they take you out of your comfort zone with friendly encouragement. After a day in the office there is nothing better than getting outside and exercising the day away with Helen.

 

James - I have been attending evening sessions for 2 months now and all I can say is; incredible. Helen is an amazing motivator, an incredible trainer and frankly a miracle worker. Working out with Helen and her classes has got me stronger and fitter than I could ever imagine and really helped me cope with a tough few months. I can't wait to crack on into 2020!

 

Helen - I do not run and I definitely do not do push ups is something I say A LOT! Yet Helen has managed to get me doing both, outside in the dark, in the cold. Her classes at Tooting Common whilst challenging leave me feeling like I've achieved something and are helping me get fitter and stronger.

 

Maja - Been going here for almost a year, and they are the most encouraging and fun classes I’ve done - even though it’s cold and raining! Really good workout and versatile workout, my fitness has improved so much since starting with Helen!

 

Rachel - Really enjoy these classes, Helen makes it really relaxed and fun but pushes you hard. The classes are very inclusive catering to all abilities which is great. Definitely recommend.

 

Rosie - I absolutely love Helen’s classes and she is fantastic. It’s so nice to get outside and exercise after being in the office all day and I am getting noticeable stronger and fitter. I 100% recommend her classes to anyone is any fitness level.

 

Ems - Helen’s classes are AMAZING! She makes the group sessions on the common full of fitness and fun, whatever the weather! She is a brilliant motivator and is always coming up with different routines to keep it interesting. I highly recommend Helen - you will NOT be disappointed!

 

Jon - I've been training with Helen for 2-3 years. The best thing, apart from Helen and the training, is the community, familiar faces, new faces, who just want to do a good bit of affordable exercise locally without all the membership. So c'mon to the common!

 

Olly - Helen's classes are well structured and suitable for all fitness levels. There is a lot of variety across the week so you will always be challenging a different exercise. I would recommend signing up to her six week blitz challenges, they are very cost effective and Helen can help you reach your end goals :-)

 

Kate - I've never found exercise classes or activities that I've wanted to keep going to. The classes that Helen run have turned into a hobby whilst improving my fitness at a comfortable pace for me. The classes are very encouraging and there is a very friendly atmosphere.

Rawden - It’s when you come away from an ‘insanity’ class on a cold Monday night in Feb and feel properly energised you know it’s good!! Helen’s a fantastic instructor and from walking in over a year ago with no idea what the class what about I haven’t looked back!


Louise - I’d highly recommend the class and Helen's teaching style to anyone looking to get started or needing that boost to reach their goals!Helen’s sessions, from Insanity to Bootcamp, are awesome. She knows how to mix fun and hard work to get the best results. Always encouraging, she pushes you to your max, which is just what you want in an Instructor. Looking forward to joining her sessions in 2019! Thank you Helen!

Amanda - Helen is an excellent trainer, her Spin and Insanity Classes are fun and a great workout (yes Insanity and fun in the same sentence!). Helen’s natural style, enthusiasm and energy make you work hard, give more than you think you can and importantly see results. Helen makes sure your technique/posture is right and explains the benefits of each move. Since taking her Insanity class I’ve seen my core and upper body strength improve- which has also improved my running- win win!. If you have never tried Insanity head to Helen’s class in Tooting, you won’t regret it!

 

Chris S - I've been going to Helen's Insanity group classes for about a year now and I have to say it's changed me for the better. She's a great instructor - always motivating and pushing you to do your best. She pays attention to what everyone's doing and corrects anything that may be a little bit off, so you can FEEL THE BURN more (and prevent you from getting injured). The Insanity class is varied in ability and full of really nice people so no one feels like they feel out of place or uncomfortable. Highly recommended.

 

Justine - I first attended Helen's sessions doing the 12 weeks to Christmas Insanity Challenge. Before long I found I was going to both Monday and Wednesday insanity sessions and piyo on Wednesdays too! I can now do a burpee - HOORAY! (...and I don't entirely hate them - double hooray!) In fact I can do a lot more than I thought my asthmatic bee-hind was capable of! Helen was keen to help me overcome my nervousness in starting to exercise again - her quick replies with any questions I had prior to starting and her encouragement to come and see each class to see what best fits my exercise style was so helpful and very much appreciated. Her energy keeps me pushing through each session and looking forward to the next. I now find myself actually wanting to exercise - Can't recommend enough! Keep up the great work Helen

Grace - Helen's Piyo class in Tooting is brilliant. A very friendly and relaxed class, it caters to lots of abilities and is good value too. I come away from every class feeling refreshed. Definitely come and try it!
