APWelcome to Sheffield’s premier personal training, health, fitness and weight loss service. With a fully equipped, completely private gym, Get Physical is a training facility that offers all the equipment, knowledge, experience and motivation you will ever need – but without the crowds!

Lifetime of experience

Get Physical is owned and run by myself – Paul Lonsdale, and my partner – Ann Hirst. Not only are we qualified and fully insured personal trainers but also, and more importantly, we each have over 25 years of experience in many aspects of exercise, from weight-loss and toning, fitness, weight training, nutrition & weight management to body-building, boxing & martial arts. We’ve been there, seen it, done it and bought the proverbial tee-shirt (to be honest, we were around before T-shirts were popular!).

“Over the years I have learned so much from them. I am sure that any future clients of theirs will be able to reach any goals they have set with the help of the best two trainers possible.” – Jon Hall Olympic GB Wheelchair Basketball ...(read more)

Entirely private sessions by appointment only

In many gyms or studios in Sheffield you and your trainer would be in an open environment, under public scrutiny, sharing space and equipment with other trainers and their clients. At Get Physical, we believe that if you are paying for a personal training service you should have both your own trainer and your own private space to train in. We don’t allow other trainers to use our gym so you will never have to queue for equipment; there will be no interruptions and no-one watching - we are not open to the general public!

This is what makes us unique: you will receive purely one-to-one training and expert nutritional advice in complete privacy.

Sensible and permanent weight loss

We have another ‘ace up our sleeve’ that demonstrates our ability to solve anyone’s training and diet issues: we’re the only personal trainers in Sheffield to have written their own, fully comprehensive guide to permanent weight loss  (available in print for just £9.99 or as an Ebook – both options available from Amazon)

Dump the Diets

Dump the Diets

It’s called Dump the Diets, Ditch the Scales, Drop the Inches  (Just click on the image for more info…) You may think all of this experience and exclusivity has a high price tag – wrong!  There is no membership, no joining fee nor any hidden admin costs – you only pay for your sessions, with prices starting from £35 


‘Get Physical’ is more than just a gym, it’s a representation of our life-long philosophy: a set of ideals based around the core principles of efficiency, honesty and integrity. Often, the quickest route from A to B is the easiest one – following the path of least resistance.  We don’t pull punches or offer empty promises; there are no quick-fixes, magic pills or beach bodies in just six days!  There is only hard work, determination and usually some sacrifice, but neither do we believe in inflicting unnecessary pain or depravation just for the sake of it – a good exercise and nutrition plan should not become a ‘near-death’ experience!  Our basic doctrine is to determine not how much you need to do, BUT HOW LITTLE!  Our job is to use all of our experience and knowledge to plan the simplest and the most stress-free path to get you to your goals. We will design for you a bespoke training programme based on our  ‘Train Smarter, Not Harder’ workout principles.  We also run a weight loss consultancy, ensuring all your nutritional & weight management goals are met by tailoring our hugely successful ‘Dump the Diets eating guide precisely to your nutritional requirements.

In addition to all of the above, we’re happy to announce that, in association Annurca heading 2with Annurca Health, we are now able to offer a comprehensive, personal health and well being assessment, including cholesterol levels and tests for liver disease and diabetes, etc.

Whatever your needs Ann and Paul will be able to help you, they do not promise miracle cures or overnight weight loss sensations, they do not need you to have the latest fashion wear, but they will offer you 100% common sense and support and a way to change your fitness and health levels for life.
