"I have been coaching and Personal training for over 30 years and in that time have attended a vast amount of courses and gained a wealth qualifications and accreditations. I attended this course to refresh, refine existing skills and did that and learned so much more, not just about the lifts but about coaching techniques...

"After struggling with my body being unresponsive to changes in my exercise plan and adjustments to my nutrition I was becoming frustrated. As ever, Karl listened to my moaning! But then started to interrogate my collection of subtle symptoms - feeling stressed and anxious, increased frequency of night terrors, mood swings, weight loss not...

Paul Lynch

"I was one of Karl's oldest clients at the age of 60. I wanted to move away from resistance machines to free weights but thought I might be too old for Cheshire barbell. Karl assured me that I wasn't. Karl coached me both in the weight lifting workshop and as a personal client. Karl is passionate about fitness and brings energy, enthusiasm and a wealth of knowledge to every...

"I attend the November Olympic Weightlifting Course at Cheshire Barbell ran by Karl Page and found it to be full of tips and facts and plenty of coaching but overall it was fun! I am not a seasoned lifter, nor am I training for a competition and to be honest was a little apprehensive about going on this kind of course as I thought I would look stupid or not be able to do any of the lifts. The pre-...

"For anyone who is interested in Olympic weightlifting I highly recommend Karls workshop. Over the course of the weekend he demonstrated and informed us on the various techniques to perform the lifts. Karl is really friendly and informative coach who brings a great atmosphere to the training environment and his tips bringing...

"Would like to say a big thank you to karl on helping me achieve my goal of a fitness cover model. I highly recommend Karl as a coach as he was always available for advice and direction. The meal plan and workouts are both individualistic which is the main reason I chose Karl as a coach...

"I worked with Karl for a initial period of 16 weeks. My goal was to get as lean as possible while building lean muscle. The first four weeks we used various foods to see how they affected my body. The remaining 12 weeks was a very enjoyable and satisfying experience. Karl sent me my weights programme and tweaked my nutrition if necessary on a Tuesday after I sent him my progress photos and...

"I've just completed a 2 day course at Cheshire Barbell with Karl Page and I highly recommend it to anyone of all fitness level! I've always been interested in how Olympic lifters can shift such a huge amount of weight above their head and make it look easy, so this course was perfect for me to attend. Over the 2 days Karl went over the snatch, clean and clean & jerk step by step until we were confident enough to try the full movement

Taryn Kinsey

"I have just completed a weightlifting course at Cheshire Barbell and it was amazing. I have been wanting to take it up for a while but was always frightened of getting injured,but this course has totally eased my mind. Over the 2 days Karl went over everything with us step by step, we practised each move till we all felt comfortable to move up to the next stage, and if any of us were unsure we all helped and gave...

Mike Ward

"I have just completed a 2 day Olympic Weightlifting Course with Cheshire Barbell and what a course it was! Over the 2 days we covered the lifts, Snatch, Overhead Squat, Clean and Jerk. As well as the lifts Owner Karl showed me a huge variety of mobility exercises for my hips and shoulders. I thought I would struggle with the lifts due to a lack of flexibility, because of a lot of Rugby related injuries. But with Karl’s coaching...

Nathan Tindsley

"I sought the help of Karl this year with the aim of building some more muscle and getting rid of some fat. Karl gave me an exercise program to follow including exercises, reps, sets, intensity and timings. The document also included an exercise database which gave me links to videos showing how to do the exercises. Karl was able to change the exercises in my program dependent on how I felt about them or any injuries/niggles I had. As well as doing...

Leza Walker

"Having trained for almost 20 years I became aware that I was doing the same thing over and over and making no progress what so ever. I was introduced to Karl 12 months ago and I instantly liked his passion and dedication for everything fitness, he revolutionised my work outs and my whole attitude to training. Before meeting Karl I would spend hours in the gym doing mainly cardo and seeing very little results. Karl devised a personalised training programme for me and the results I have seen are amazing. No longer do I spend hours hammering the treadmill...

Sarah Glendenning

"Hi Karl, thought I would send you an email with a follow up from our training just for your monitoring and assessing process. First of all a HUGE thank you for getting me through my 1st dan and 2nd dan. You are amazing. Couldn't have done it without you. This time I started with your meal planning.  I doubted it initially but became a believer when I felt better than ever although I struggled with the amount of protein I had to
