Yes, a fitness test along with a questionnaire about your previous experience, goals, medical health etc. is done on the initial complimentary consultation. This allows Barry to tailor make a bespoke routine just for you.
Barry won’t fully know until an initial health and fitness assessment is conducted. This will allow for a more detailed adaptation to your training if required.
If a Barry’s client has no health issues or allergies he can educate clients as much as possible and make initial changes each week to their current nutrition regimen rather than giving out diet plans. From Barry’s experience, drip feeding information and changes to nutrition is the most effective way for long term success, this way has given him the best and most consistent results with clients.

I never lost the baby weight after having my little girl so when I got engaged it spurred me on to do something about it. I started personal training with Barry 9 months before my wedding. I went from a size 18 to a size 12!!! This was only possible due to Barry pushing me giving me confidence in my abilities and helping me believe I could do it when I didn't believe myself! He taught me to concentrate on how I felt after working out, the mental benefits firstly and the physical benefits would come naturally. He wasn't wrong and I cannot thank him enough. He genuinely cares about your well being not just results. Fab trainer and now a very close personal friend!
I trained with Barry as I really had no idea what I was doing when at the gym. He set realistic goals and gave me workout plans and kept me motivated! Was always available if I was having any problems or questions. Really encouraging and a positive attitude, if you’re looking for a PT I would definitely recommend Barry!
Barry keeps each session fresh, fun and challenging. He always knows how to motive me and is full of patience. Barry is an absolute pleasure to train with! I've gone from a size 14 to a size 10. I thought it would take me a year to achieve this sort of weight loss, but to loss body fat, AND gain knowledge of nutrition and confidence on the gym floor in only 16 weeks, is simply incredible. Would recommend personal training in Dubai with Barry to everyone!
I have personally known Barry for around 8 years and he has shown nothing but a positive attitude, and care towards his team mates and personal trainer clients. Barry always has his clients grow in confidence and body confidence, he is a top trainer with a great personality.
Barry is a great trainer. I trained with him for 7 months in Dubai and he's helped me in a lot of ways and I couldn't of asked for a better trainer
