Personal Training

Do you want to feel good about your body?

Meet Personal Trainer Dean Schaffer

If you’re looking for a personal trainer that promises a fast route to dropping weight by banning carbohydrates and exercising until the point of exhaustion, then I’m not your guy! Why? Because to me, fitness is a lifestyle, not a fad and I’m trained to look at the long game, not just the short term gain.

Heavily into martial arts – I’m a black belt in Kung-Fu and weight training since a teenager; I’ve always been passionate about fitness. For me, it’s a big part of my life and as founder of The Fitness Club I want to make it a part of your life too.

Big on communication and trust, my friendly but focused training gets anyone hooked. There’s a lot of copycatting in fitness, but I’m a trainer who’s a little bit different. For one, I listen and secondly, I care. I adapt my techniques to create programs around my clients’ needs according to their abilities and goals.

Working both anaerobically (short and fast exercise) and aerobically, I use core, resistance and circuit training to improve and empower their life through exercise. I like seeing my clients happy, and the right program will undoubtedly raise confidence levels, making you look and feel good. My personal mantra is ‘health is wealth’, and I like to think of myself as the backbone that keeps my clients standing up straight and looking to the future.

Working with all ages from 18 to 83, I’m consistently challenging my clients – whether they’re overweight, stressed city suits or post natal mums, and pushing them towards their next goal. I’m always thinking of new ways they can progress. I understand bad days and whatever problem my client has, I have a solution. Ultimately, my personal training sessions are about you, not me. I get enjoyment from seeing results – and that makes me thrive.

What our clients say about us View All

  • When I started training with Dean I was totally out of shape and I was overweight. I was not walking properly and I couldn't do a single push-up. After training for three months I have lost 8Kg and my body fat has gone down from 18% to 15%. My metabolic age is 15 years less than my physical age. Now I can do 300 push-ups No problem Each training session is different and more challenging than the last one. You can feel you improve from week to week. What I liked the most is that training is really carefully tailored for my needs and goals, and even if it is hard work (as it should be!) it is feasible and effective. Nutrition is also very important and if you follow Dean's advice (not crazy or impossible diets but straight to the point adjustments to your Life style) results are guaranteed. No stone is left unturned to help you achieve your goals. Juan A. Rufes (Age 45)

  • There is no such thing as a slow session at Dean's gym. Dean doesn't take prisoners or do compassion but then who would want to join a gym that does.Since starting training eight months ago my body has completely changed shape. I have been training all my life, getting nowhere, but now I can see muscle tone and feel real strength. It's not always easy but Dean pushes you forward to achieve the goals we all hope to gain.

  • I explained what I wanted to achieve and finally someone understood my goals and the results are fabulous. I am an individual that cannot stand repetitiveness and Dean’s sessions are always exciting as you just don’t know what to expect apart from one thing, RESULTS’ Sophie Bowman, 30, London

  • The Fitness Club London allows one to truly understand what a good gym actually is. I have been to many gyms over the years and finding one that has a broad range of top quality equipment which is perfectly maintained and clean is hard to come by. If you too are looking for that then this gym is the right gym for you

  • I have been training with Dean since last July and it has been fantastic.  I had been struggling with a back injury for several years and had tried all kinds of Physiotherapy and Osteopathy with mixed results and only temporary relief.  Dean felt he could help and very rapidly he started strengthening my core and doing manipulations to release the lower back.  He started very carefully making sure I did not make the injury worse and within four weeks there was a huge reduction in the amount of pain I was suffering on a constant basis.  Since then he has built things up and we work on the rest of the body now, as well as my diet and cardiovascular exercise.  I feel much healthier, stronger, and fitter, in addition to the pain relief, and it is due to Dean’s professionalism and talents as a trainer.  I would recommend him to anyone, he takes his job very seriously and gets results.
