Polina Banushkina

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I’ve been working in the fitness industry for more than 10 years and it has led me to understand that every client is unique with their own goals, lifestyle and fitness experience. For every goal, my role is to design and deliver a personalised programme that is rewarding, efficient and lifestyle changing.

What my Clients say:

From the first session I really enjoyed our training. You can instantly tell she is so motivating and passionate about helping people achieve their goals. During the first month I lost 2-3 kg in weight. I found my core strength improve really quickly and tone up, which I’m so happy about as it was an area I didn’t like about myself. Thanks Polina!

Whether you’re new to the gym or a seasoned gym goer, I’m here to help you progress and achieve your goals. Fitness is more than just weight loss, it’s about how you feel and perform.

What my Clients say:

"For each session, Catherine had planned different exercises or circuits specifically tailored to my current ability and my goals. This made the training super fun and kept me motivated! She helped me to better understand exercise and training, by teaching me what muscles were engaged during each exercise, and teaching me the importance of timing and breathing to help with completing each rep - particularly during those last few challenging ones! She was full of encouragement and positivity and I left our block of personal training sessions with a breadth of knowledge that I am going to be able to use in my own workouts going forwards. Catherine is an expert in her field, with an abundance of training, fitness and dietary knowledge, she is reliable and consistent and as long as you’re prepared to put in the hard work, then Catherine is definitely the perfect PT for you."
