When I contacted Lorna after seeing her website, I had no idea that she would become what I call my“ Guru”! I have a daughter Daisy with a rare condition called adams olivers syndrome, and I had to get fit and lose weight for the 3 peak mountain challenge to raise money for her.
My diet was appalling and I was crying daily, eating lots of chocolate and feeling stuck in an angry bubble that I didn’t know how to get out of. Living with my daughters condition is draining and you need to have lots of energy to cope.. and I wasn’t coping, I was using caffeine to keep me awake. Giving up caffeine was a huge benefit for me, and I now can’t believe I even used to drive with it in my body as I feel so much more alert after giving up.
Lorna helped me all the way, I lost 19lbs of fat in the first 8 weeks and came off my 40ml anti depressants and now feel I have a much more balanced lifestyle, and can now even wear Lycra!! I love it! I even find myself choosing to wear it over other clothes just so I can work out when I need to! My kids have started to respect me, especially my little girl Izzy who is on the larger side, its good for her to see that I now look after myself. I feel less stressed and have so much energy and am a more organised person!
With Lorna’s help, I now know how hard I can push my body and I will never go back to how I was. She was always there for me, even with little things that I felt I didn’t understand about food. She never made me feel uneasy or embarrassed and if I fell off the wagon, she was there for me and got me straight back on track.
Thanks so much Lorna, I don’t cry anymore, and you helped me get fit to climb the mountains for our Daisy. Oh and one more thing.. I don’t even visit the chocolate Isle anymore.. not even when penguins are on offer in tesco!! ;)

I decided to start personal training after they successfully transformed my twin sister prior to her wedding day. Having been a keen runner triathlete and cake eater, I found the diet tips so easy to follow. The homework given to me when I wasn't personal training was straight forward to complete and I soon began receiving comments from friends as I became leaner within the 10 sessions I had booked. My goal was based on losing body fat and was realistic. They were always there to help with my queries via email or text also.
I looked forward to the sessions as we always seemed to do something different! Its now great to fit into my old clothes and the weight loss and strength from the weights program has really improved my running. I am now looking forward to this summer & the London Triathlon... Thanks guys!

My personal training experience has been the most positive, life-changing experience ever!
Well into my fifth decade, I could hardly climb stairs without getting out of breath. Running was a total no-no. I chose Lifestyles for Living because I liked their friendly website and also wanted to be trained by a woman. Right from the start my trainer has been amazingly supportive, never being judgmental or making me feel bad. She tailors workouts to how I feel on the day and can always find fun alternatives if something is too hard at the moment. She puts 100% into what she does and is always ready with friendly, encouraging emails and texts.
These guys are backed up by some amazing sports massage therapists who freed off a painful shoulder joint before the start of my sessions.
Two months down the line on the Gold Package, I've lost a stone, feel so much more fit and cheerful and find that exercise in the gym and at home has become a natural part of my daily routine. If you're looking to improve your fitness and health levels, to amaze your family and friends, to have lots of fun as well as going down several clothes sizes then sign up!
Their motto says it all - "Together we'll do it"
"My training was great fun and really educational. In my first 12 weeks I lost 17lb of body fat and gained 10lb of muscles, Damn!!! I lost 3 inches off my belly, gained 2 inches on my skinny thighs and added an inch of muscle onto my guns, even though I lost all that fat. The dieting and exercise tips they gave me fit into my life-style really well and I now have much more energy to play with my little girl! I feel way more confident about my body image and now know what to do to keep it off. Cheers guys."
"I signed up for 10 weeks of Personal Training and 10 sessions of Yoga. And I must say my experience has been incredible. I've always been healthy, but a tough year or so meant I'd put on some weight and was feeling really low in self-confidence. Thanks to these guys, I am now in the best shape of my life and feel super sexy.
They make it really easy for you, helping you with nutrition and exercises to do at home and I saw incredible results after only 4 weeks of working with them. I've never been a runner, but with their help I can now run for miles and really enjoy it. They are incredibly supportive of their clients and they have loads of tips and ideas to keep you motivated and make things a little easier for you if you find some things hard.
I've not only seen changes in myself, but also in some of their other clients that I know, and their results are unbelievable. If you want to lose a little weight or completely overhaul your body then these guys n girls can help you get there. If you can imagine it, you can achieve it."
Kathryn Jones - Norwich
"I started my personal training over 6 years ago now with a long standing calf injury that I could not shake off. They took the time to look at how my body was (or more to the point wasn't) working and explained how other muscles were not working correctly, which in turn was putting pressure on elsewhere. Since then, they developed a training programme which allowed me to return to football fitter than I had been for some time, and also helped to sort out my poor posture, which had contributed to various strains and injuries over the years. As I approach 50, I feel confident with my new knowledge and continuing guidance and I can now continue to play sport for a few more years. These trainers are clearly passionate about what they do, and I only wish that I had visited them before, as maybe some of the problems I have had over the years could have been prevented. They don't just look to just offer short term solutions, but to work with you on developing longer term plans also, to prevent future re-occurrences and also to make you feel better about how you look and how you feel. If you have a problem with poor posture, an injury that you can't seem to shake, or just need some personal training to tone up that tired body, then look no further,"
Ian - Norwich
“It’s so easy to stray off course and make excuses not to train, but I am now so focused and really enjoy every training session. I can see and feel addictive results in the mirror, in the clothes that I wear and seeing the results in the gym and the 15lb of muscle I gained in my measurements gives me a real boost. I never felt any personal trainers in the past listened or took any real interest in what I wanted so ended up with a one size fits all program to follow which did not motivate me at all. They really do listen and understand exactly what you want then help you get it! Staying focused means achieving my goals and if I achieve my goals then I am happy. I just know that this is the best shape I have ever felt in my life! Thanks!”
"I love the way that i'm pushed through my workouts and always shown what can be achieved and where I can improve. I now know that it is possible for me to get down to my target shape as I never used to feel like it would be possible. I'm so much more positive now that I know that I'M WORTH IT! 😜 My measurements are coming down fast, I'm getting to the gym and going outside for small runs (which I never thought I would be able to) and I'm now in control of my food and alcohol which feels great. I have lost over a stone and am half way there which should take me another 9 or 10 weeks and I know I will do it. I used to feel sorry for myself, get stressed at little things and never speak my mind but now i'm a very different person. I would recommend Lifestyles for Living very highly because if they can do this for ME then I think they can do it for anyone."
“The coaching and training advice I received was exactly what I needed. I was so bored with exercise, making annoying excuse after excuse not to train and boy do I hate not training! I needed something new and to see some real results badly as I had become stale and was about to give up completely. After gaining some support and vital new exercise and nutritional tips, I quickly regained my love for exercise. I could never previously get over the 13 stone barrier building muscle but soon packed on half a stone of strong, lean muscle along with the energy I once had. I now train harder than ever and an occasional monthly review and programme update gives me just the edge and motivation I need. Trust what these guys say, stick to it and you will get the results.
"I have been personal training for 3 months now and have found it great fun and very professional. Each week my motivation increases even further, my workouts are never boring and each session has lots of variety. I love the tailored knowledge of not only training and exercise but nutrition too, which has been an enormous bonus for me being vegetarian. I have also had some Sport massage that helps. My posture is now better than it has been for years. A true professional with lots of good advice along the way! Thanks Lorna & Mark. I have come a fair way in 3 months but still have a bit more to do! You have both been such a great help to me!"
Angie - Horsham St Faiths
"A friend recommended Lifestyles for Living to me nearly a year ago as I was having persistent trouble with my back despite treatment and also my personal life. In that time we has worked some minor miracles! I was given some specific exercises for my back and now it only gives me trouble if I forget to do them. My personal troubles have not been so easy to cure but my trainer is always there with excellent coaching to get me back on track when I feel I have hit rock bottom. Even when I ignore their sound advice they still give me the support I need, which has been invaluable to me and I know I will soon be living the life I deserve. Thank you!" 😁
Martine - Norwich
“My sessions have been so motivational and have helped to build my confidence dramatically. I used to spend hours on a treadmill doing boring cardio but they showed me that a tailored exercise and nutritional programme for my body type and personality could give me far greater results than I expected in the 5 months of my training plan than the previous 10 years of training on my own! I went from 28% bodyfat down to 21% and it was so much fun finding out the answers to my questions and watching the weight seemingly fall off!! These guys are great role models and knew what I needed to do. This new approach has given me my life back as I work out for half the amount of time. I also used to be totally obsessed with my food, counting calories and getting really frustrated with doing what I thought was right, but now i'm much happier and more relaxed in my relationship with my food as I now know how to control my results. These skills really have changed my life.” "Thanks guys" :)
"I am 62 years young and in the best shape of my life! I have been training on and off for 25 years but I could never lose the stone of fat around my tummy! And I used to train for half an hour and think "thank god that's over"! But now I have abbs and my workouts are now like a drug, I just wouldn't do without them! I never feel like i'm doing the same workout twice and they always know just how far to push me. My diet and exercise sessions now give me more energy for my very demanding roofing business and hobbies such as scuba diving! I'm at least 20% more confident than I used to be and I never get the aches or injuries I used to get before! It takes time and you have to keep it up but the effort and money is worth it!"
Peter Futter (Norwich)
Back in 2004 I was trying to get back on track after some trauma in my life and I was struggling to improve my time for the race for life. Since then I decided to try a personal trainer and after receiving such great support and fantastic results I’m now a very different person. I have gone from 28% body fat to just 18% and I now run half marathons regularly and just completed the London Marathon at the age of 50 eh hum something… I enjoy a more balanced approach to life, thinking more positive, eating healthily and using exercise to raise my energy levels which in turn makes me feel like a stronger person inside and give me that feel good factor too!
My sessions are great fun, the service I receive is always consistent and my whole visit feels really worth while. It’s not just the exercise knowledge I need it’s the real understanding and supporting nature that makes me feel better about myself even when I come off the rails. I have been so inspired working with these guys for the last 7 years that I am now a qualified Personal trainer myself and now take group exercise classes to help inspire others to improve their lives as I did."
Sally Ann Protheroe (Lowestoft)
"My workouts have been amazing. Never judgemental. Always positive, friendly, welcoming and professional. I've lost nearly 2 stone since I started 4 months ago and I look fantastic from the outside (so people tell me!) and have regained my previous figure. More to the point I feel fantastic inside and know that I am fit and strong as well as slimmer, which is what I wanted. And I now have a new man and was delighted to wipe the floor with him when we went cycling in Suffolk last night with my new super fit thighs - I think I need to book him in for some sessions himself :) Positive life coaching approaches are so important with all of this. Thanks Guys"
Natasha Santos - Norwich
“As a frequent gym user I started to go through the motions, standing around chatting too much and leaving the gym feeling unfulfilled. Well I tell you what, that was 10 years ago and I have never looked back since. Having someone take a genuine interest in you and you’re goals is such a motivation. The coaching I receive gives me that "try harder" boost I need for my own self respect but also to make my trainer proud. A regular sports massage also ensures I don’t pick up any injuries and keeps me feeling ache free. If I am totally honest my trainer being, friendly, entertaining and faceable also helps. Hey let’s face it guys and girls you have to like and respect your personal trainer as you need something to aspire to and these guys have bodies to die for.”
Maxine Bye (Olton Broards)
“Training with Lifestyles for Living has been great fun! I have so much more energy, feel much fitter and I can’t believe how much keener I am to willingly exercise on my own at home now. I used to dread training at home always finding excuses or going to the gym because I didn't know what to do and found things so boring and not to mention intimidating! Before I started I disliked my body shape in particular my arms and tummy. I marjorly needed to tone myself up and lose a few pounds and really wanted to feel a much healthier person who was confident looking in the mirror and socialising. I always felt like giving up in the past but they really encouraged and inspired me to keep going naturally. I needed a great motivator and not just a pretty face as they helped me to understand the way my body works and to believe in myself so that I could achieve my original goals of fitting into a size 8 losing 6 and a half inches from my tummy within 5 months!” "Thanks soooooooo much"
"When I first started I was overweight, unfit and miserable, especially since I had just turned 50.....They didn't just design a programme for me; they helped me work out why I had not managed to reach my weight and fitness goals in the past, and why I had repeated patterns of behaviour that clearly were not effective. We worked together on mobility and agility, slowly building up my fitness level in order for me to be able to safely start the exercises which make all the difference. Along the way I have had times of incredible energy and achievement and others where I have felt I am literally dragging myself uphill and not getting anywhere, but throughout it all they have been positive, supportive, encouraging, available, strong, bold and determined. They have taken me so far outside my comfort zone that I have hardly believed some of the things I have done. They had a vision and solid belief of what I needed and helped me believe that what I wanted were actually attainable. I am now 10 weeks into my regime, I have boundless energy, I sleep well, I have lost 20lbs, I'm changing shape and am the most fit I have been for decades. Having such experienced, professional and friendly support in your life is a breath of fresh air, a burst of energy and an excellent investment in the future"
Catherine Hall - Norwich
I have lost 6” off my tummy, 2” off my thighs and 2” off my hips since I started my programme. That was 2 months ago and I can’t believe that it felt so easy. I was very nervous before I started because I didn’t have a clue on what to do for exercise and I had so much mental anguish over food and other habits, but I knew I had to do something when I started to get back into my black clothes and hated getting bigger! The nerves soon went because the support was great and it was heaps better than anything that I had done before. It is an all round programme and makes so much sense to me. I got exercise and eating advice specific for me and I’m now going to keep going for me and not anybody else. I feel much stronger mentally and physically and have more fun. It was also important for me that this programme was affordable long term and it is. If you are thinking of giving it a try then I would say go for it.
"I quickly felt very comfortable and confident with my trainers ability to help me and I find their sessions very motivational, always focusing on targets and just doing things with much more vigour! I really feel as though they are committed to my goals and that really helps encourage me to achieve them. I love the variety in my workouts and the advice out of the gym is just as if not more than important. If I had not have started working with these guys then I would still be in lots of pain with injuries trying to ignore them and plodding along doing the same old exercises and only doing enough to not make me feel guilty. I'm so much further along now over the past few months and I would gladly recommend that anyone thinking of training with these guys just get down there to meet them."

"I feel I want everyone to be doing what I’m doing because I want to be able to share the experience. If you have a goal in mind these personal trainers will get you there.”
