    I had the great pleasure of working alongside Miro for over a year at Precision Health studio in Kew, Australia. As a teacher trainer in my fields of expertise for over 25 years, my eyes are always watching those teaching around me. I did observe and noticed Miro evolve into a truly caring, dedicated, and highly skilled trainer. On a professional level, Miro, read, attended workshops, and subjected his own body to a range of fitness modalities that all lead to a greater understanding of functional fitness needed in his body, and therefore, a greater understanding of the functional fitness needed in the bodies of clients he had in front of him. He changed his own body with dedication to correct exercise and a healthy eating regime.

    Having always considered myself to be a fat person, I had never really expected that to change. Whilst I am not morbidly obese, I have never really shifted my puppy fat through a combination of laziness, denial, and a lack of basic knowledge and understanding of what it takes (and how easy it is) to have a healthy lifestyle. The main bonus for me was that he is a genuine expert in his field and not just a “gym bunny”, who fancies becoming a personal trainer. We set off on a three-month intensive program to achieve the following: shed the puppy fat, improve energy levels, and to get fit for the new football season, by a combination of carefully controlled meals, regular exercise with the aim of leaving me with the motivation, and skills to eat and exercise healthy for the rest of my life.

    I first trained with Miro in Bristol, in 2011. Miro was a complete breath of fresh air and broke the mold of typical trainers. Miro listened to what I wanted to achieve and took into account my then lack of fitness and ongoing health issues. Each session was different and varied to prevent boredom and served to continuously motivate me, not only during the session but outside of the sessions under my own steam. What sets Miro apart from other trainers, is his passion for what he does and his genuine desire to see you succeed in achieving your goals, no matter how challenging or ambitious they are. His positivism and professional, yet friendly, disposition engenders a feeling of self-belief and delivers results that I didn’t think were possible. I enjoy each and every session and I am so glad Miro is back in the UK to get me in shape for my wedding.

    When I reached 19.9 stone, I decided I wanted to change. With Miros help, I have managed to get to under 13 stone by using healthy eating and exercise. Now, I want to get my body fat to under 15% and build loads of muscle! He completely changed my eating without putting me on a diet, and he is always on hand to help me when I have any questions about food. I really enjoy the fitness sessions, and he always keeps me motivated by setting new goals. As I had overweight in the past, I worry about putting the weight back on, but we also do regular health checks. Even during days when I am tired, I end up leaving the session feeling great!

    Miro Caminade helped me lose three stone in three months. The results are amazing. He really does help you with so many different aspects of fitness. Not only have I lost the weight but I feel so good now and, on top of that, I have managed to stay fit and healthy.

    Miro has been doing personal training sessions with me once or twice a week for three years. In this time, he has been skillful at adapting training to different goals, such as participating in a 10-kilometer road race, having never run before, maintaining fitness, losing weight, and recently rehabilitation for a knee injury. Miro was always punctual and reliable and in all that time he never cancelled a session or was late. He is friendly but always appropriate, and makes the sessions enjoyable. He clearly keeps himself up to date with research into nutrition and training techniques, and as a result, he keeps the sessions fresh with the introduction of new exercises. I recommended him to three colleagues, all of whom have enjoyed and benefited from training with him. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

    I went to Miro for help because I had left my half marathon training too late; five weeks before the race. I've done half marathons before, but usually had more training time under my belt. First of all, Miro made it clear that we only have a small amount of time, so we had to be realistic. I play in a band on most weekends, so there is beer and bad food aplenty. He stressed the importance of no alcohol, changing my diet, and getting plenty of rest. Believe it or not, I was even ill on the Wednesday before the race and worried because I had not got my last couple of sessions in. He reassured me that as long as I recover before race day I will be fine. He gave me a race strategy and I am proud of the results!
