Linda age 41

“Who’d have thought that a 10 week fitness programme would give some fantastic results! I signed up to Lean and Learn for a couple of reasons.  Reason 1 for me, reason 2 I needed a new focus.  Why? well with in 3 weeks both my kids were due to leave home and I decided if I didn’t act on this I could end up sitting every night eating bad food!

So while on Facebook one night I cam across ‘The Fitness Guy’ saw the pics and read his blog and thought this is for me!……To say I was excited was an understatement.  I was ready to start my new 10 week programme which focussed on healthy eating and exercise which is the only way to go.

The programme for me has been fantastic.  I’ve eaten proper good food and as for snacks I must say some days I really can’t eat them all.  As for the exercise which is 20/25 minutes… It’s no time at all.  Not only have I lost weight but more importantly cm’s consistently over the last 10 weeks.

With every week that passes my energy levels have gone up!  I’ve found a new love for cycling!  I’m looking forward to continuing in the support group as have set myself a new 8 week target.”

Meghan age 27

“Signing up for Lean and Learn is the best £99 I have ever spent! After having two gorgeous baby girls in the last 14 months, I wanted to get back in shape and in 10 short weeks I am now the smallest and healthiest I think I have ever been.

I smashed my weight loss goals and I also set a goal to be able to run 5k with ease by the time I had finished the program, which I did no bother with the help of Steve’s hiit workouts! This plan has showed me how to enjoy my life, enjoy food and continue to be sociable while leading a healthy lifestyle. It’s all about mindset and Steve and the team at TFG has totally changed my approach to “dieting”. No more yo-yoing for me!

I never imagined 3 months after giving birth I’d be happy with my body but I have never felt so confident. You only regret what you didn’t do so sign up – you’ve nothing to lose but inches!”

Lisa age 34

“I’m so glad that I’ve done this programme. I’ve loved the eating plan and the workouts and looking forward to continuing the graduate programme. I feel so much more confident.  I didn’t feel that I was missing out as the food is yummy! The group is so supportive. I’m delighted with my results and have lots more confidence!”

Lesley age 33

“I can’t believe what a difference this programme has made in such a short time!
Not only do I look different but I feel so good! No more headaches, no more bloating, and so much more energy to run around after my boys!
I even went on holiday and still had great results that week.. as a graduate told me before signing up “if you can’t do this while on holiday, you’re not doing it right”
It felt so good to have the support group, there to answer any questions or simply there with encouragement.
I am so pleased with my results, how much I have learned, and excited to join the graduate programme!
Thanks TFG and team!”

Jamie age 36

“I’m a 36 year old mum of 3 whose been in the throws of child rearing for 11 years.  Always putting myself last and failing miserably to squeeze in the classes I’d like to and loved my nightly treats.  I decided 2017 was my year to change and stop making excuses and put myself first.

After feeling apprehensive about TFG I soon got into the swing of it and I’m amazed at how easily it fits in with family life.  There’s nothing complicated and if anything it’s saved me time and not to mention the money we’ve saved on food shopping. Within 4 weeks we’d saved the £99 it cost me to signup. I’ve never been hungry and never had to eat anything I don’t like.

10 weeks on and I’m amazed at the new life that’s been created, by learning how food works and how I can apply simple and effective principles to see the results I’ve always wanted since having my children.  Bizarrely putting myself first has meant everyone benefits as I’ve more energy, my mood is better and all the usual female struggles have lessened.

The support of the group has been fundamental to me and my goals and the accountability within the group really keeps you on track.  Can’t thank TFG team enough for their continued support and resources.  Anyone thinking about change should start here. “

Yvonne age 57

“The past few years my weight has been creeping up. I thought: that’s it… The dreaded after meno pause results
This summer a friend came to visit, looking fabulous after loosing more than 10 kg, with the Lean & Learn Programme.
My initial aim was to join to be able to fit in a long dress for a wedding. I had to take in the dress in the end😜
I enjoyed the 10 weeks immensely. I find the programme easy to follow. No need to go hungry, easy recipes and the work out videos are great. Very stimulating. I did them 5 times a week. Now I joined the graduates programme since I want to loose a few more cm. I am very pleased with all the recipes and workouts available.
And, as a last comment, being part of a group made it all easier and fun sometimes
Thanks Steve and all the coaches”

Nicola age 38

“The 10 week lean and learn programme has given me back control, when I was spiralling in a negative circle of sugar addiction and stress eating.  I don’t really “do” diets, this is definitely a lifestyle choice that I have made.  I feel better, stronger and happier.  I found the programme manageable and the food easy to prepare.  All the family ate the meals from the recipes.  I’ve had nights out and “treats” but have just got back on track again in the morning, or made allowances during the week.  I’d recommend anyone to give it a go and see for yourself how it can fit in around a manic family life.”

Claire age 35

“I’m so glad I joined L&L when I did. I had reached a point where I was at my heaviest weight and my eating habits were spiralling out of control. I felt like I was stuck in a loop of unhealthy choices, looking after 2 young children i had no time to go to the gym, and the thought of meal planning just overwhelmed me. Steve made it simple, stick to the meal plan and do a 20min home workout three times a week. There’s no magic tricks involved, no complicated diets just healthy choices. The meal plan was flexible with lots of swap options so it worked perfectly for the family, and the weekly workouts where fun but challenging, with each week getting harder as your fitness improved – I loved them!”35

Gillian age 41

“I joined the 10 Week Lean and Learn Programme to help me lose some weight and tone my figure up, and I have done exactly that, but in addition I feel I have adapted the way I think about food and exercise, learning that there is definitely a balance to be found to still enjoy my food, and enjoy exercise. My partner also enjoyed the recipes I made from the programme.
Overall I found the programme really easy to follow and fit into my life, seeing the weight fall and measurements steadily reduce it motivated me to be good and do even better for myself. I’ve learned and I’m Leaner.”

Michelle age 39

“So I hummed and hayed on whether to join the  programme to start with….. because I didn’t believe in myself, that I could do it, I had been in a hard place, food & exercise, weight & confidence was getting out of control, but emotionally and mentally it had been a difficult few months, so self belief was none existent….. But thankfully, I bit the bullet, gave myself a shake, started to turn a corner in my head & heart and signed up! I thought it’ll give it a go, it’ll give me focus! I didn’t want a “diet” I wanted to have a healthy body & mind & educated! That’s why I did it, that’s why I chose this!
Hand on heart, one of the best decisions I have ever made, the food plan, the workouts, the support and most of all the RESULTS are fantastic.
Thank you for kickstarting me to a healthier me! Thank you for giving me my self belief, and body confidence back!”

Amy age 23

“I never joined the 10 week programme to lose weight but more to tone up and feel better about myself and I am so glad i did this because i have done just that!
My clothes are fitting me better, im less bloated and im feeling great and looking forward to wearing my party dress for my Christmas party this weekend!
Thanks for all the support TFG and team.”

Briony age 22

“I am so happy I did this before Christmas, I am feeling fantastic and so much more toned.  I really enjoyed the programme and all of the support along the way.
I now feel confident and comfortable in my own skin.”22

Jen age 34

“Exercise has been a big part of my life for many years and wasn’t the problem. But Having had 3 kids, I had fallen into a real bad habit of calorie saving and gorging on sugar during the evening when the kids were in bed and when I was tired and needing sugar. I really needed to re-educate myself on how to eat healthily and the Lean and learn programme definitely did that. I eat loads now during the day of all the good stuff and although I still need/enjoy chocolate at night I factor it in and as I am eating better during the day I don’t have the massive sugar cravings and led to me losing control. Thanks to the lean and learn team.”

Gail age 41

“I have really enjoyed the 10 week lean and learn program. The meal plan is easy to stick to with everyday foods and easy to swap the things you don’t like. 10 weeks and I haven’t been bored of the same things. The workouts are easy to follow and the bonus is doing them when it fits in with your routine and suitable for all abilities. I am amazed by the results in 10 weeks and plan to continue. If you are thinking about it then go for it…..you won’t regret it!”

Emma age 45

“I joined Lean and Learn after seeing The Fitness Guy pop up on my Facebook feed, I had a look at his page and saw some before and after photos of women who’d done the course which were really impressive.

Even though I did exercise I could see little to no change and definitely felt the weight harder to budge as I got older, so decided something had to be done!

I was unsure about what to expect at first, but everything is set out very clearly, and is easy to follow. There’s also coaches available if you have any questions or need advise.

The meal plans are easy to follow, with plenty of choice and the recipes are quick and easy to prepare. There’s also plenty of snacks included daily so I was never left feeling hungry. I still enjoyed my g&t’s each week and even a few nights out during the 10weeks, I’d just make a few adjustments to my eating or do an extra workout.

I actually loved the exercises, they were quick to do and because they changed each week never got boring. It amazed me how quickly my fitness improved by doing the exercises.

I’m thrilled with my weight loss but I’m even more impressed with the cm’s I lost as I see a real difference in my body shape. I’m proud of myself for sticking at it  and feel much happier in myself now…I’ve joined the graduate group and look forward to continuing my success”.

Karen age 53

“Thoroughly enjoyed the lean and learn programme! Feel stronger leaner and healthier with more energy than I have for quite a few years
Loved not feeling hungry and having a better understanding of what I’m eating and the benefits for my body. Still socialising and even having a holiday during the ten weeks.
I’ve enjoyed the exercise videos and am learning to love exercising and the way it makes me feel.
I don’t feel like I have a 53 year old body anymore, result!!!”

Megan age 36

“After a hard pregnancy and traumatic birth I found myself with several postnatal problems, 2 stone heavier and a shell of my former fit self. I was overwhelmed by trying to eat right, exercise and look after my daughter, dogs, run a house and work. I simply wasn’t getting anywhere with weight loss or fitness. I joined the program and decided I’d simply stick with it for the 10 weeks and see what happens.
10 weeks later and I am absolutely delighted with my results but more importantly the way I FEEL! The diet plan was simple and easy to follow and the recipes are delicious! The workouts allowed me to exercise in the evening when my wee one was asleep so I didn’t even need to leave the house. The more workouts I did the better I felt! But this program is more than diet and exercise….it’s about support and dealing with life issues, physical and mental that sometimes get in the way. I loved the videos on women’s health and they have helped me greatly. There is a massive amount of support from the coaches and others on the program. The whole program has helped me get back on the path to where I want to be giving me a great balance to be a healthy, happy Mummy and a positive role model for my family.”

Carol age 43

“Loved, loved, loved these past 10weeks.
Definitely the best thing I have done in a long time.
No food is off limits you just need to allow for it.
So proud of team TFG. It really is a team effort and the program is as unique as you are.
I have had chocolate everyday( sorry can’t live without it) a McDonald’s every week, although I’ve cut down from a medium meal to a happy meal.
I have had 2 Chinese’s, a chipper and also a weeks long cruise on the Mediterranean, with constant food available.
I have done the minimum 3 periods of exercise per week and have still steadily lost weight. To say I’m delighted is a complete understatement.
I have joined the graduate program as I would like to continue losing weight in a way that suits my lifestyle and will give me a realistic chance of keeping the weight off.
It’s also not all about the weight loss. I feel so much better. No more afternoon naps. No more headaches. I have more energy and am able to take part in new activities I never thought possible 10weeks ago.
Just give the Lean and Learn program a go. You have nothing to lose by trying ( apart from some weight!!)
Thank you team TFG. Looking forward to the next phase.”

Abby age 23

“I really wanted to try and find a programme that would be a lifestyle change, one I could stick to and see results and I certainly have been able to do both! The meal plans are easy to follow and the workouts are fun and easy to fit in. I’m so proud of how I’ve stuck to the 10 weeks and the results I’ve seen I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to make changes and see results! I can’t wait to start the graduate programme now!”

Claire age 28

“I started the lean and learn programme 6 weeks after giving birth to my son. At the time, I thought I would never see any sort of muscular definition on my stomach for a very long time but just 10 weeks later I am amazed with my results! The workouts are great and the support and guidance you get from week to week is just amazing.

Thank you so much to everyone involved, this is definitely a lifestyle change that I’ll be carrying on with beyond these 10 weeks!”

Angela age 49

“I’ve been trying, unsuccessfully, for years now to shift some weight and tried every diet going, including counting macros!  Then boom, just 10 weeks after starting the Lean and Learn program, this amazing transformation happens.

It’s not the meal plans, its not the exercise program, its not the pep talks and advice from Steve…its the combination and being part of the group.

This community of like minded women inspiring, motivating and challenging me to pull out another successful week that has made the difference.  My only regret…not signing up earlier!”

Lesley age 52

“I can’t thank Steve and Jodie enough for all their help and encouragement over the 10 week lean and learn programme. Whilst I’ve done various food plans over the past five years, I can honestly say this is the first one which is based on normal everyday food the whole family can enjoy. I also can’t believe that by eating so much, how much my body shape has changed. I even felt guilty at times for the amount I was eating and at the beginning I was convinced that I would put on weight rather than loose it. How wrong was I ! 

 I’ve also got the severe sweet tooth cravings I had always battled with well under control and even went on holiday to Las Vegas half way though the 10 week plan and didn’t gain any weight.  The support group is fantastic and I would encourage anyone thinking of signing up to do it because it does work and teaches you a whole new way to look at the everyday food you eat to find the balance and achieve a healthy and happy lifestyle. I’ve certainly done it and if I can, anyone can.”

Julie age 40

“Lean and Learn has been a fantastic programme for me. I have found the menu easy to follow and stick to. The workouts were challenging but so quick and easy to fit in to every day life. Overall, I’m delighted that I’ve not only changed the way I look but also the way I now think about food, it’s a much more positive and healthy relationship. Thank you to The Fitness Guy team!”

Zoe age 45

“I am a self-confessed hater of exercise. I can stick to diets no trouble but have always struggle with the exercise side. This was great for me as I could do it in the comfort of my own home , with no equipment and at a moment’s notice. I have not only noticed weight loss and cm loss but I have more energy, sleep better and generally feel better about myself. I have loved the support from my Facebook group as everyone has been very honest about good days and bad. I cannot recommend this enough the best £99 I have spent in years.”


Debbie age 49

“I joined The Fitness Guy in April after the Christmas eating had got out of hand and I needed to get back in control. As the weeks went on, it became obvious that this wasn’t like any of the other weight loss or fitness programmes I’d tried in the past. The best difference was the support every member receives. You are placed in a small Facebook group so you get to know the other women in the group and the coaches are always there whenever you need a word of support. I loved that the workout videos changed every week, so you never got bored – and the educational videos helps reset your mind to help it be a long-term fitness lifestyle with the emphasis on inch loss. And the last amazing thing is the Graduate programme for when you finish the 10 weeks – you’re not just left floundering, or prone to drop all your good habits – but it’s even better and more supportive than the original 10 weeks. Highly recommend TFG for anyone wanting to start their shaping up journey.”

Paula age 50

“This is the first time I’ve ever stuck to any plan. I’ve enjoyed the workouts. it has made me realise that all the bad foods I use to eat wasn’t necessary. I feel so much more confident in myself and excited to carry on with the graduate programme and to continue this happier and healthier lifestyle”

Laura age 39

“I cant thank you and Jodie for all your help and support, this plan really has changed how I view food and has changed my habits for the better. I was definitely someone who “lived for the weekend”, I’d be seriously restrictive with my diet Monday – Friday and hit the gym (almost) daily, but would binge at the weekend because I was so hungry and tired so any progress I did make was undone.

I still have a long way to go but my goal was to lose 1 stone in 10 weeks which I’ve done. Next goal is another 10 pounds in the next 10 weeks!”

Faith age 50

“This programme is fantastic.  I have loved the food plan, it teaches you to make the right food choices.  Nothing is off limits and the programme is perfect for all the family because it is  basic simple home cooking.

The exercises are fun and you can do them at home and at a time that suits you so again is simple and easy to follow.  The support from Steve and Jodie is brilliant and I am astounded and delighted with my results.

One of the best decisions I have made and I would highly recommend this programme.”

Denise age 51

“The Lean & Learn programme taught me so much….I can’t Thank TFG team enough. Brilliant support & encouragement for all.
Firstly it taught me how to have the correct mindset, how to control my food intake …the right amount my body needed for the day.
And that exercises are actually fun to do…( never thought I’d say that) I may feel tired after doing a workout but I also feel fantastic at the same time.
I’m now on the Graduates Group, much healthier, fitter & well on my way to reaching my goals.”

Debbie age 44

“I have found this 10 week program simple to follow and was amazed at how much good food I could enjoy whilst learning about what my body needs nutritionally to remain healthy and trim excess body fat.
The support network and information is brilliant and encouraging . I’ve lost 10LBS in weight , changed shape and become more confident in myself.
I have more energy and motivation for everyday things and enjoy my sport, activities far more now I’m not carrying so much weight..

life is better now as a whole and will be continuing this way indefinitely to reach my goals..
I’m so glad I took the decision to join . In only 10 weeks I feel I’ve achieved what I’ve been trying to do for a very long time.”

Laura age 30

“I can honestly say that Lean and Learn has completely changed my life for the better! I was a classic yo-yo dieter, and even though I did a lot of exercise classes, I never seemed to shift any weight. After I had my 3rd baby I decided to take the plunge and sign up to Lean and Learn, and I’m so glad I did!

There are no foods that are ‘banned’, it’s not a diet, there is no feeling guilty for having a treat or a night out. It’s eating well and embracing exercise – I’ve never had so much energy! I feel so much better about myself – after 10 weeks I’ve reached my original target weight, which I’ve never achieved on any of the other plans I’ve tried. It’s not just about the numbers though – my mindset has been changed and I know I could never go back to eating like I used to. I’ve found the balance!”

Louise age 34

“I am so proud of what I have achieved in just 10 weeks.

Found the programme easy to follow, good structure, and great support network from both Steve/Jodie and the group members.

The workouts are straight forward yet challenging and only took 20 minutes out of my day.

It didn’t feel like your typical “diet”,  still enjoyed normal food and the odd treat here and there.”

Liz age 43

“I joined this programme as a birthday gift from my daughter as my clothes were too tight & wasn’t going to buy bigger clothes.  I was already active but knew I had to do something about my eating. 

So I was determined that I would try The Fitness Guy, Lean and Learn plan; it was the best decision I have ever made as I now eat healthy & still have the odd night out and still have fun.

I would recommend anyone wanting help to lose weight & tone up. It’s my 20th week and I’ve gone from 11st down to 8st 12 this is the lowest weight I’ve ever been in a long time.  I have alot more energy, sleeping better, great skin & I’m smilin like a Cheshire cat.  I’m still maintaining the balance.

Give it a go, you won’t regret it.” 

Sharon age 47

“I first heard about Lean and Learn for my friend who had just completed the 10 week programme, she looked amazing but she is only 30, I’m 47 have PCOS and going through the menopause – will it work for me? I had been on so many “diets” over the years and I had failed.

I emailed loads of questions to Jodie, who directed me to the website and WOW the photos and stories gave me the kick up the butt I need so I decided to sign up.

The group I was in all gelled together, we shared our stories, all different people, different jobs, different struggles but all with the same goal – to get fitter and healthier. The meal plan is brilliant, it kept me on the right path, and still is. The exercises, well the first week I was walking like John Wayne after getting off his horse, my thighs and bum were aching but it was so worth it.

Did I have bad days – yes, was there times when I didn’t want to do the exercises – yes but when you see your results week after week and you chat to the other ladies, who some of them are having a bad day too, it made me realise this is what it’s all about, helping and supporting one another over that “bad day”.

Steve and Graeme have been brilliant, every question was answered, every achievement congratulated, it felt like they were there every set of the way.”

Julie age 48

“Hi my name is Julie, I am a 48yr old working mum who found herself feeling frustrated with my body following a breast cancer diagnosis.  The drugs, treatment & surgical menopause had all contributed to a gradual gain in weight, a permanently bloated stomach & a constant daily struggle to fit into my clothes.

I was recommended Steve’s fitness program by one of my chemo chums after she shared with me the amazing changes & successes other ladies were having.  I already felt I was eating a healthy balanced diet & regularly exercising, but I was not seeing any improvements or changes to my body which just left me despairing, so I knew a different approach was required.

Steve’s program just makes sense.  His diet consists of normal regular food, straightforward, easy recipes that taste great & weekly HIT exercise videos that gradually increase your fitness stamina & over-all body confidence.  I never once felt hungry during the 10 weeks, in fact, there were days that I didn’t eat all the food, yet week after week I saw my body shape change & saw myself loosing cm’s from all over.  The online support group really keeps you focused & motivated & Steve’s videos teach you to make simple, obvious changes that make all the difference long-term.

For me it wasn’t really about the weight loss – I only lost 3kg during the 10 week programme, but what I did achieve was a love for my body shape that I thought I would never get back.  I’ve now joined the Graduate group & am looking forward to using everything I have already learned together with Steve’s (& gang) new educational posts, recipes, & exercise videos to remain motivated & help keep the balance day to day. Thanks so much for teaching me how to make a difference!!”


Mel age 34

“Huge thanks to team TFG.  I feel fitter, healthier and happier than ever.

The meal plan was exactly what I needed.  Simple and flexible so it suited the whole family.  And I could squeeze in the workouts whenever it suited me and I loved them.

Absolutely delighted with my progress and my new found confidence.  Bet £99 I have ever spent.”

Tara age 47

“Where do I start?  My weight had been gradually creeping up over the last few years, nothing major but enough that I wasn’t happy with the way I was looking and my clothes were becoming increasingly tighter.

I’d been following The Fitness Guy on FaceBook for a while and kept looking at the before and after pictures before finally deciding to take the plunge.

I’m so glad I did!  The plan is fantastic, from the menus, the amazing coaches, the support from other members in the group, to the workouts.  I loved the workouts and was able to fit them in with my busy family life no problem at all.  I even looked forward to getting a new one each week, something I never thought I would say.

Over the course of the programme I lost a total of 7kg and 35cm overall.  I am so pleased with my results and am continuing with the plan and hope to loose around the same again.

I did this over the summer which included school holidays, BBQ’s, a holiday abroad and lots of socialising.  The healthy meals are also going down a treat with the rest of the family.

My only regret is not doing this sooner! ”


Alison age 33

“What a brilliant programme, so clever in the way it teaches about food, for me anyway, taking it back to basics and then building the plan to suit your own lifestyle with the macros as a basis. 

Even with having a really busy time lately and not doing as much exercise and eating as best as I can I have managed to keep weight and cms off which is a big thing for me. And will hopefully continue to keep losing even if slow and steady. 

Will be, and have been, recommending this plan to anyway wanting to lose weight/shape up.

And such a great FB group too!

Thanks very much everyone!”

Susan age 44

“Highly recommend this programme. I had my reservations when I first read the menu planner. I almost gave up before I started! But after watching Steve’s first motivational video I decided to give it a go and haven’t looked back.  I’m not good at sticking to anything rigidly and this is why this programme has been great. It gives you the knowledge to start making your own sensible choices. I had already been exercising regularly but hadn’t made the right changes with regards to food. This programme helped sort out my eating also taught me so much more about making my exercise worthwhile. One of the main changes that I made was when I was hungry I chose food that would fill me up instead of just grabbing junk. I haven’t made the speedy progress that I have seen some other make but during the 10 weeks that numbers have always gone in the right direction and feel that I know enough now to keep going that way! All in all £100 very well spent!!”


Bev age 43

“A friend recommended The Fitness Guy and said that the Lean and Learn programme would change the way I felt about food. At the end of the 10 weeks, I’ve lost 8kg and 25cm which I love, but actually (though I do love a numerical target!) the bigger success is how much fitter and healthier I feel. With the balance of healthy eating, exercise and the group support, the programme was eminently sensible and I don’t know if it’s changed how I feel about food but it’s certainly changed how I feel about me.”


Vicky age 35

” I joined the group to get my motivation back and loose extra weight I gained after 2 babies. The group is amazing so supportive and no question is daft. The work outs are brilliant and meal plan easy to fit into day to day life.”

Stephanie age 51

“I would like to say that i started the program because i was disappointed how i looked and felt. The way i feel now is amazing, so alive. I have dropped a dress size, but more than that the comments i have had from people that didnt know i was on the program, is amazing and a confidence boost. The support from Steve, Jodie , Graeme and the ladies in the support group is invaliable. Definately one of the best decisions of my life. i will continue to keep with the program as it is  a way of living. No more worrying about the weight, its the cms that count”


Cuca age 43

“I’ve been trying to lose this kilos from my pregnancys for a few years………..I always loose 2-3 and then back again so after watching all the photos from the TFG website, I decided to join and give it a go!!

I am not going to lie the first and second week were hard ( missing my food, fine with exercises) but after that you feel better & look better so you don’t want to fail yourself…. I am very competitive person so reading about other people results encourage me more, so the group was a very good help.

I feel lighter and toned and hope lose more in the graduate group. “

Rhiannon age 28

“Last year I lost a lot of weight and went to my lowest I had ever been since before I had my daughter, but it slowly crept back on… I became lazy, stopped exercising and my eating habits changed because I thought “Oh it’s fine I’ve already lost the weight…”

After standing in front of the mirror looking at myself thinking what on earth, I finally decided you know something I am going sign up for the 10 weeks, and I don’t regret it one bit.

This isn’t a fad “diet” and there isn’t such a thing as eating “on or off plan”, basically it’s all about making the right choices and finding the balance. I am not gonna lie, I do enjoy eating out, having the odd take away on a friday night and a night out at a weekend! I didn’t have to worry about not eating or drinking something, which is why I thought this was great. The meal plan you are given is really good, a swap sheet is provided, and there are loads of options if you don’t like something in particular, i.e fish steak etc. You can choose use this plan as it is or as a guide whilst tracking stuff in My Fitness Pal. I stuck to the plan the first while and then started using MFP to track my Macros (sounds daunting but it is really easy).

On the facebook group that is set up, Steve provides loads of videos (and I mean loads) explaining how everything works, from using the meal plan, using the swap sheet, MFP, finding your way around the Facebook page, myth busters, about alcohol etc. Recipes you name it. Graeme/Steve/Jodie are there to answer any questions you have, and to be honest you probably aren’t the only one thinking that “silly” question, it’s a great way for sharing your questions, good moments and sad moments.

It is on here that the weekly work outs are posted, now, come on who doesn’t have a spare 20 minutes 3 x a week!!! They are good fun, and can be done in the comfort of your own home (no equipment needed) whilst the children are in bed / at school / you have a day off – there’s no excuse, pretty sure you would manage to sit down for 20 minutes, So…

I’m not back to where I was (YET), so I have joined the graduate group, and so far I am loving it. The support is great, and I like how you can still weigh in on Mondays 🙂 (which will keep me on track). Everything I mentioned above is available, there are loads of different workouts, kettlebells, weights, HIIT, yoga, pilates.

I can’t wait to look skinny in my bikini next year :)”


Donna age 44

“What can I say about this programme?  If your hesitating, don’t, go for it and stop making excuses!

I had been unhappy about my weight, shape and fitness levels for some time. I had to face up to the fact that my youngest was now three and baby weight, just didn’t cut it anymore!

I found this programme very easy to follow and was surprised that there were no “weird” potions instead of regular food. The suggested menu could be incorporated into family mealtimes with ease. The regular suggested recipes kept things fresh too.

I thoroughly enjoyed the weekly workouts and the satisfaction after completing each one was rewarding.

I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved, to date and can’t wait to continue and have the waistline that I’ve longed for.

The continued support from Steve & Jodie has been invaluable and the other ladies in the group have been so positive and encouraging.

Best £99 I’ve ever spent!”

Chloe age 27

“The 10 week Lean & Learn programme has completely changed my attitude not only towards food but exercise as well! I actually enjoy exercising now! I’ve learnt that you don’t have to be 100% strict on your diet, if you want to have something then have it but you will just have to work harder in your exercise routine to compensate for it. It really is about finding the balance. This programme has taught me how I want to live my life I don’t want to constantly be on a diet which I end up breaking, I want to live a healthy lifestyle where I can have treats now and then and this programme has made me realise this is possible. I am so happy with what I have achieved in the last 10 weeks but I still have a long way to go and I’m excited to continue on this journey in the graduate group 😊”


Hazel age 43

“After my second baby at 42 and a I knew I needed to do something about my weight and overall health if I wanted to be more than a spectator to their childhood. I had heard about The Fitness Guy from a friend and took first step and contacted him.

I was apprehensive given the amount of fad diets I had tried before BUT I couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s a simple eating plan designed to educate you about healthy eating and exercise whilst still living life. In my first week I lost a whooping 4kgs and centimetres off every body part. So much so I measured twice as I thought I had got it wrong! 10 weeks on 12.3kg and 30cm+ lost and I am healthier than I have ever been. I have more energy to play with the kids but more important I actually like what I see in the mirror.

Please please please join the hundreds of women taking control and changing their life’s for the better you won’t regret it!”

Victoria age 43

“45 years old, 3 kids and having what I thought was a healthy vegetarian diet doing advanced Pilates twice per week I was still gaining weight and my shape was really getting me down. My sister was an early graduate of TFG and great supporter, she still looked fantastic 1 year after finishing the program so I decided to give it a go. I am Scottish but I live in Holland and was a bit wary about being able to get the right food. The first week of following the plan I had to get up to speed quickly with swaps as I don’t have Tesco and I am vegetarian. I was pleasantly surprised by how much you can actually eat but getting the protein balance initially was challenging. I have learned so much about myself, food, macros and lost 6kg and 31cm in the 10 weeks. The best bit by far for me was the workouts and how accessible exercise becomes; doing 20min workouts whenever and wherever. I was on holiday in Italy for 2 of the 10 weeks; I managed to do the workouts everyday and came back from holiday having lost weight and cm! I’ve now joined the graduate program to get the support to lose the final kgs and cms.”

Stacy age 39

“I have absolutely loved the programme. I have been a yo-yo dieter for years and now thanks to TFG I have found one that works for me and round the family. I have loved all the exercises and even had the kids involved. Having two little ones the ability to do all the exercises in the house with no equipment has been a god send and the fact they are only 20 minutes we can all fit that in. It took me a while to get my head round the macros but I know I’ll get it eventually! The support, team spirit and advice have been amazing. Thank you all.”

Jenna age 35

“I had my doubts starting this programme as i have done many fad diets out there and never been able to stick to things long term so thought id be the same with this plan but to say im glad i went for it is an understatement! This is no fad, no diet of the sort, its a healthy lifestyle change that is so easy to stick to, not only for myself but my family too, everything on the plan is child friendly – no struggling for time trying to cook separate meals!

I have always had a love for fitness but my eating was so off that i was not gaining any benefit for the workouts i was doing!  I have learnt so much on this plan and the energy i have for it is amazing!  I never go hungry and working out is so much more enjoyable, i now manage twice as many workouts as i did before!

I wouldnt say i had a huge amount of weight to lose but in the 10 weeks i dropped a dress size, lost 12lbs and 12cm off my waist and all the time enjoying it, not once did it feel like a chore or that i was missing out on anything!

Steve and Jodie are fantastic, on hand at all times offering help and support and having the ladies for motivation and support was great, that really pushed me to get my trainers on and workout!

This has by far been the best £99 i have spent!!!”

Marie age 55

“Joining the July group was the best thing I have done in a long long time. I have really enjoyed all the support and structure of the whole process.  It has given me a new focus and I don’t actually feel I am missing out on anything.

I don’t think any previous workout routine, jogging or gym work has given such visible changes in my body in such a short spell of time. I am determined to keep up with at least the minimum 3 workouts per week if not more. I like all the recipes and have tried a good few.”

Kerry age 39

“I was at my biggest I’ve been in my life after having two young kiddies and I needed to change. It was a very last minute thing my friend said she was about to start the fitness guy programme and that I should do it too. The application had to be completed by Monday night and it was Monday evening so I quickly took the photos and sent all my details in. I then started the following week and I am so happy that I did. I have learnt so much and have loved doing the workouts.

I have lost 13 pounds, 36cm and have so much more energy, I feel great.

I have now joined the graduate group and I can’t wait to get even more fit!!

Thank you Steve, Jodie and Graeme for all your support. I would definitely recommend starting the programme it will change your life”


Lori age 28

“The 10 week programme has been fantastic! I have loved every second of it. The programme did not deprive me of anything and the plan was so flexible that i could adapt it to suit my shiftwork. I am no longer scared to eat carbs and loved the different receipes posted daily. The workouts were great, only 20 minutes long and your done for the day! Steve, Graeme and Jodie have all been really supportive and being part of a group for the 10 weeks really motivated me to stick to the plan. Would definately recommend this to anyone!”

Clair age 36

“I can’t thank Steve, Jodie & the group for everything over the last 10wks, so glad I pushed myself to do this instead of contemplating another FAD diet to lose pounds for the summer!!

I found the determination as the weeks went on cause I could see change in my body but by actually eating proper healthy food! Having 3 herniated discs in my lower back meant certain excerises was more difficult to do but I just did the ones I could and I can’t believe the different in my fitness levels in 10wks, feel so much stronger & so much more energy. My skin is better & after suffering with migraines & headaches for years I was hoping that by eating more healthy foods this would help too & it has, just delighted in so many aspects.

So glad I have done this programme & I’m confident about continuing this process on my own because I have learned so much about different food groups & how to #findthebalance.”

Louise age 48

“After having a baby and struggling to lose weight I decided that this was the best option for me, I had seen so many transformation photos and though that this was exactly what I needed.  I was very apprehensive when I first signed up, after trying so many other diets and eating plans as I didn’t really know what to expect.

It turned out that this was very simple to follow, the meal plans are easy to understand and the whole family is eating the same meals as me.  I never felt hungry either which really surprised me and I never felt like I was on a diet.

This programme has given me the confidence to be able to make healthier food choices going forward, no food is off limits and it’s all about finding the balance now.  Looking back I am so glad I decided to go ahead with this plan, it was the best decision I ever made!”


Lorraine age 52

“I loved the plan I found it easy to follow and it encouraged me to be more organised, it also educated me on healthy eating and was never hungry.

 I have tried other diets over the years they never gave me the results I got with your plan. As I am post menopause I thought nothing would work for me but it did.

I was sad when the 10 weeks came to an end but I am going to carry on! I shocked myself how much I enjoy exercising!”

Mandy age 44

“I was a bit dubious to start Lean & Learn as wondered if it would be another diet I tried and gave up, but I decided to sign up anyway. It was the right decision!

When I first received the plan, I was pleasantly surprised about how normal the meals and snacks were and very family friendly. I was delighted to be eating well but also making sure that my family were eating the same healthy evening meals.

Over the 10 weeks, my mindset completely changed. It wasn’t all about how many lbs I would lose, but rather knowing my clothes felt better and how I felt within myself (more energy, less bloated etc). I just eat differently now, not diet.

Some of the workouts were tough, but as someone who didn’t really exercise, I loved them and looked forward to seeing what the next weeks video would bring.

The support of the ladies in the group was amazing, and of course from Steve, Jodie and Graeme. We were all encouraged even on down days.

I would totally recommend this programme to anyone considering it, you will not be disappointed.”

Jenny age 40

“Wow where do I start. I was at such a loss trying to lose weight, I have been on a diet on and off for years, always saying I would start on Monday!!!! I had read lots on the Internet about what to eat and what not to eat and to be honest I was so muddled! This lean and learn programme was my last resort and thank goodness I went for it.

I have learned so much, the main one being NO food is ‘not allowed’! The programme is extremely easy to follow, the exercises are great as they are only 20minutes and I started seeing results quite quickly, it really is all about Finding the balance!

I really can’t recommend this programme enough.  Thank you so much Steve and Jodie and to everyone that was in the support group.”

Natalie age 36

“The 10 week program was excellent.  I was struggling to lose the extra kg’s after having my baby. I tried for nearly a year to lose it and I was staying the same. It was pretty depressing. I thought I was doing the right things by exercising and eating less.

But I realize now after working with Steve that I wasn’t exercising hard enough or controlling with my eating habits (crisps, chocolate and a glass of wine most nights and eating very little through the day). The program has taught me lots about nutrition, balancing your diet and that even with 20 mins of exercising a few times a week you can achieve great results.

I am so happy now as I am in the best shape I have ever been…..at 36! It has given me the encouragement to continue exercising, eating a balanced diet and I couldn’t be happier.”

Wendy age 40

“Just want to say it’s all been made pretty easy, by you to fit the workouts through the week and stick (mostly) to the diet plan.

I certainly had my fair share of nights out during the 10 weeks and still managed to progress really well, increasing my fitness levels and losing weight. It is all about balancing out the good and the bad.

I feel much fitter now and am even enjoying the exercising! Looking forward to the new challenges in the graduate programme.” 

Sandy age 52

“Like so many women before me I am delighted with my results at the end of my 10 week lean and learn programme. 

Although l lost just over 5kg, the changes in my body shape are fantastic. I’m fitting back into clothes that I haven’t worn in a long time.
Throughout  the programme Steve and the team educate you on how to eat a balanced and varied healthy eating plan  combined with regular exercise. Each week the exercise routine changes. The routines get harder as the weeks go by but Steve gives various options for the exercises so that you choose the right option for you while still working at your own maximum capacity. 

I am very grateful for the encouragement I received from the other ladies in my group and for the words of wisdom and motivation from Steve, Graeme and Jodie. If you stick to the advice you are given and put the work in you will get great results.

I am going to continue my journey in the graduate group safe in the knowledge that this is not a fad diet, this is a manageable change in lifestyle and I am certain that with the continued help and support of the graduate group not only will I attain my long term goals, I will be able to maintain them.”

Sadie age 32

“I really cannot recommend this program enough!! I joined the Lean & Learn plan as I was stuck in a diet rut. I had tried every quick fix & was often disheartened when the results were short lived.

This plan has completely changed the way I think about food, nothing is forbidden, if anything I am eating more now than I ever have!!

The workouts are the best part & I really enjoy my morning workouts, they set me up for the day! I would never have thought in a million years I would feel this good!!

I still have a lot of work to do but this is a new lifestyle for me & I love it!! Thank you so much Steve & Jodie & the amazing girls on my group.”

Marie age 28

“My biggest lesson learned from the programme is that the scales really do tell only a small part of the story. Having lost only 1.6kg, and comparing to the results of others, I genuinely wasn’t expecting to see a huge difference in my comparison photos when Steve sent them back. I was so chuffed with the results.

The ‘learn’ part of the programme has been imperative to my journey so far. Learning that being healthy doesn’t mean tiny portions, that by eating the right things and with portion control, you can be healthy and never hungry! I’ve loved the workouts because they are quick and can be done at home- no fancy equipment, slogging for hours or feeling intimidated about going in to a gym.

The benefits of the group are endless: constant support from Steve and Graeme; support from fellow lean and learners; workouts and recipes. Monday mornings are great seeing everyone’s results and how happy everyone is with their progress.

I couldn’t recommend the programme enough. I can’t wait to see what the next 10 weeks and beyond have in store as part of the graduate programme. Thank you The Fitness Guy!”


Shelley age 38

“Signing up to the Lean & Learn programme is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and definitely the best £99 I’ve ever spent!  I am absolutely delighted with my results after the 10 weeks.

I’ve tried diets in the past and I’ve lost, but never maintained.  This time I feel different, because this is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change.  It’s real food that everyone enjoys and education about how best to eat a balanced diet and combine it with exercise to yield real results.

This programme is ground breaking and it works so well due to the unwaivering support, commitment and enthusiasm shown by Steve, Graeme and Jodie.  They help every step of the way; every question is answered, every victory is celebrated, no matter how small.

I would encourage anyone contemplating a lifestyle change for the better to do it!  I was you 10 weeks ago, and now I feel better than I have in years.”

Joanne age 40

“I have really enjoyed TFG’s 10 Week Lean and Learn. I couldn’t believe that I lost nearly 50cm! Particularly as I had some weekends away and a holiday. The best part for me has been the big improvement in my health and fitness. The workouts are so much fun, really quick and easy to do at home and Steve and the group are so positive and supportive. Thanks TFG!”


Lisa age 39

“Signing up to the 10 Week Lean & Learn Programme was the best thing I have done. The programme is easy to follow and adapts to fit the whole family.

As a busy working mum who sometimes works 60+ hours a week the minimum of 3 short workouts was very achievable and most weeks i managed 3 or 4 workouts. It is like having your very own personal trainer with a 24/7 support group. My fitness levels have soared and I look forward to doing the workouts. I would recommend this programme to everyone.”

Katie age 44

“Lean and Learn has been an epiphany for me. After years of trying various ways of losing weight/getting fit I have actually found something that is sustainable. I was so amazed as to how much you could eat and how much better I felt so quickly after adjusting my diet.

The exercises are great as so flexible and fit in with family life. You do have to put in the hard work when exercising and there are days you don’t feel like doing it however being part of the group makes you feel accountable and therefore motivated.

As someone who has always been obsessed with the numbers on the scales, I realise now it is about how you feel.  Overall as a family we are all exercising more and eating well and my hubby is delighted as he has dropped a waist size in trousers already.  The end of the 10 week programme feels like the beginning for me as it is part of my life for good”


Jenni age 38

“The 10 Week Lean and Learn Programme was my saviour after getting stuck in a rut after having my children.  The meal plans are easy to follow, food that the whole family will eat and certainly is not a starvation diet!  The workouts are easy to fit into a busy day and all it takes is to set 20 mins aside 3 times a week and you start seeing the benefits.

The support that you receive from the TFG team is great and the daily posts in the Facebook group keep you motivated throughout your 10 weeks and if you are having a bad week then someone is always there to listen and help you along the way.  I’m so chuffed with my results and the changes to my body and my mind are unbelievable.  This is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix diet, and I feel that I have found the balance!”


Bry age 47

“My testimonial could be……..”I’ve enjoyed this plan so much.  The 10 weeks have flown by and I’m chuffed to bits that I’ve managed to shift 7kgs, along with 50.5cms.  I’ve always tried to keep my weight in check, but over the last few years I’d definitely lost my way.  The plan re-educated me and I soon realised I’d been consuming/drinking far too many calories, even though at times I felt really hungry and that I was being “good”.  I can honestly say I’ve never felt hungry on this plan and love the fact that no food or drink is excluded. It’s all about “finding the balance” and I certainly feel I have found it.  I’m look forward to losing more and to being fitter and healthier in 2018.   This plan is great value for money and the support you receive from TFG is fantastic.”


Lauren age 37

“Thank you so much for all your amazing support over the last 10 weeks. I have found the programme so much easier than I thought! I am now confident in making healthy food choices and about about finding the balance!

I truly thought I’d be counting the time and praying for the end point, however it doesn’t feel like the end, this is merely the beginning! The beginning of a happier healthy lifestyle for my whole family.

I am blown away with my results and loved all the supportive comments which truly kept me going.

The exercise is hard but rewarding and finding 30mins 3 times a week was easier than I thought.

Best money I ever spent!”

Paula age 47

“I had been thinking of doing the programme for months and so glad I finally did it.  Absolutely delighted with the results so far.  The advice and support that is given is excellent.  I’m eating properly and working out regularly and feeling better with myself than I have in a long time.”


Angie age 40

“I was so apprehensive about joining the Fitness Guy Programme and wondering, will it work, will I actually see results within 10 weeks?  Well I am so glad that I took the plunge and joined. 10 weeks on and I am the fittest I have been in years and look the best (body shape wise) that I have looked in such a long time.

The plan is so easy to follow and the support received from Steve, and Graeme is just fantastic. The exercises are brilliant too and it’s only 20mins minimum 3 times per week so my advice to you would be to grab the bull by the horns and just sign up”

Sandra age 32

“Ladies, if you read nothing else trust me – read this. I’m totally not a fan of dieting but wanted something that worked for me.

This programme works. It is easy to follow and you don’t have to give up anything…I have gone through the ten weeks programme and beyond, and cannot recommend this enough.

I love the 30 mins exercise as have little time for more, love the fact it’s flexible, there’s support galore and I love the fact my whole outlook has changed on diets and healthy eating.

See my pics but they don’t do it justice…this is one of the best decisions I’ve made yet! So if you are hesitating- don’t, you won’t regret this!”

Jackie age 44

“After trying nearly every diet out there and similar lean plans to this, I have to say this is the only one I have managed to stick to and see through to the end. It is easy to follow and the meal plan and swaps make it a realistic and sustainable plan, I have learned how to eat the right things and track what I am eating. I only ever carried out the required  3 times per week exercise as I knew this is what I would be able to sustain going forward.

The group is so supportive and Steve, Jodie and Graeme are brilliant at responding to any questions, at times it didn’t feel like a remote plan as the group and TFG staff are with you every step of the way.. I am so looking forward to continuing my journey in the graduate group as this is a lifestyle change not a 10 week fad diet.. Thanks TFG..”


Lucy age 31

‘Can’t recommend this programme enough! It’s been an amazing 10 weeks and I have learnt so much from Steve and his team. I followed the Facebook page for a while and finally decided to go for it, and I am so glad I did!

I always did well with exercise, it was my eating habits that were my downfall, especially at the weekends.  This programme has completely overhauled my food choices and is so easy to follow. Not like the other strict diets out there, I certainly had a few treats along the way!

The workouts are ace, can easily fit them in to my day and found I wanted to do more and more as the weeks went on.

The support in the group is invaluable and the videos and recipes from Steve are fab!

Go for it! You definitely won’t regret it!”

Vikki age 38

“My story is probably very similar to the majority of ladies thinking about whether to sign up to lean and learn. Having tried many diets over the years including shakes and strict calorie counting to name but a few I decided that I needed more than a quick fix I needed a lifestyle change and that is exactly what I have got!!

I wasn’t sceptical at all I just went for it with support of my family and of course the group. The meals fit in well with my busy lifestyle as do the weekly workouts.

I finally feel that I have found the balance and not just for 10 weeks!!”

Bry age 47

“I’ve enjoyed this plan so much.  The 10 weeks have flown by and I’m chuffed to bits that I’ve managed to shift 7kgs, along with 50.5cms.

I’ve always tried to keep my weight in check, but over the last few years I’d definitely lost my way.  The plan re-educated me and I soon realised I’d been consuming/drinking far too many calories, even though at times I felt really hungry and that I was being “good”.  I can honestly say I’ve never felt hungry on this plan and love the fact that no food or drink is excluded. It’s all about “finding the balance” and I certainly feel I have found it.

I’m look forward to losing more and to being fitter and healthier in 2018.   This plan is great value for money and the support you receive from TFG is fantastic”.

Charlotte age 31

“After seeing The Fitness Guy repeatedly pop up on my ‘suggested pages’ on Facebook, I decided to do my own research online and signed up. If I’m honest I wasn’t sure it would ‘work’, in fact I was convinced it wouldn’t! I had tried many a diet and fitness programme before without success and the only one I had had any success with made me miserable thanks to a restricted diet and little support. I’m also not very good at sticking to things; often starting full of enthusiasm that dwindles off in a few weeks or when things get tough.

I opened the meal plan apprehensively; but to my surprise it was full of foods I recognised and, on the whole, quite liked. Throughout the 10 weeks new ideas and recipes appeared in the group some of which I’m still to try but can’t wait!

It took a couple of weeks to get into the swing of things but very quickly it stopped feeling like I was on a ‘diet’; I just felt like this was my normal day to day life! Steve and the team took the time to explain macros and why they were so important and the team were always on hand for support.

The exercises were great in that I could do them at home, didn’t need equipment and it didn’t matter if I struggled because there were always modifiers. Steve drummed home a very important message; it’s about YOUR 100% and you’re not competing with anyone else.

10 weeks and lots of cm’ s later, I’m well on my way to being a fitter, healthier, slimmer and most importantly happier version of myself. There’s still a way to go but I really have learned that this is a lifestyle not a ‘diet’ and I can’t wait to see how i can progress in the next weeks and months with the support of TFG team and the lovely ladies in the group! ”


Shona age 34

“Struggled with my weight for years now and have been successful on previous diets but it never seems to last. That’s the difference about this programme, it’s not a diet it’s a lifestyle change and learning to make different choices. It gives you the knowledge to change your way of thinking about healthy eating and exercise.

Never been a great exercise fan but the exercises were fab, some harder than others but easy to fit around work and home life. My son loved to join in and it was a god distraction when routines were tough.  The food was great; my son ate every meal in the plan as they are so family friendly. Being prepared with shopping and lunches the night before was key for me.

My goal was to lose weight as I’m getting married next year and wanted to do it properly this time. I’ve still a fair bit to go but now feel I can do it as I know how to do it properly, in a way that’s achievable and can maintain. Jodie and Steve were so helpful and always there to answer any questions as were the ladies in my group which was a huge help.

Had so many compliments about how I look and there is no better feeling. Cant recommend this programme enough ladies, a life changer.”

Clare age 35

“I have really enjoyed the last 10 weeks of the plan. I wanted to teach myself how to eat better without feeling as though I was dieting and this plan has shown me how to do this.

I’ve loved doing the exercise videos and  the support I received from the other ladies in the group was fantastic.

I can’t recommend this plan, Steve and Jodie enough – in fact I’m telling everyone about it!

Thank you for helping me get back on track, finding my confidence and feeling happy about myself again.”

Laura age 29

“I loved the programme, great for someone who needs structure and staying focused. Loads of support in the group to keep you motivated!”

Fiona age 44

“After trying loads of different ways to lose weight over the years I feel that I have finally found something that works and that I can maintain.

The meal plan is easy to follow and I felt like  I was eating loads.  The exercise videos were great as I could fit them in around work and kids activities.

I have also enjoyed the educational side of it, knowing what I’m doing and why it’s working .  Still some way to go but confident I can do it in the graduate group.  Only down side …. my clothes are all too big.”

Alison age 38

I am a busy mummy to a 2 and 5 year old.  Throw a dog, cat and part-time job in the mix and life can get pretty hectic!  Since having my son I found I was doing hardly any exercise and my eating habits just got worse and worse.  I was relying on sugary foods and caffeine to get me through the day which mostly meant horrible headaches in the afternoon.

The last 10 weeks have totally changed  the way I eat and I am confident I can now make mindful and healthy food choices (without giving up my Friday G&T).  My headaches have gone and I don’t crave sweet things like I used to.  It has been so easy to fit the exercise into my weekly routine and I loved noticing that I  became fitter and stronger as the weeks went on.

The support from Steve and Jodie is truest fantastic.  The ladies in the support group have also played a huge part  in keeping me on track and motivated.  I can not recommend this programme enough – it really is life changing!”

Suzanne age 34

“I basically started it after seeing how well my sister was doing following it and I liked the fact that it contained normal everyday food, not vegetables and chicken for breakfast like some other plans I’ve followed!! Which I’ll not name! Haha!

I loved the fact that a few treats were included also, certainly made me stick to the plan knowing I was getting a dairy milk on the Saturday!

Workouts were quick and easy and great to follow in your own home. Yourself and Steve and all the girls in the support group were fantastic, really made a massive difference communicating with others following the plan too.” 

Suzanne age 33

“This has definitely been a lifestyle change for me…  I’ve always been into fitness but never managing to stick to the other “diets” i’ve tried before, but this is different and has definitely taught me a lot especially about food.

The workouts are straightforward and easy to follow but also tough at times, but once you have done them you feel so much better, and its only 20 minutes out of your day.

I would definitely recommend this plan to anyone looking to get into shape, the food plan is so easy to follow and you don’t feel like you are missing out on anything. 

So happy with my results and looking forward to continuing my progress in the Garduates Group.”

Chloe age 27

“The 10 week Lean & Learn programme has completely changed my attitude not only towards food but exercise as well! I actually enjoy exercising now! I’ve learnt that you don’t have to be 100% strict on your diet, if you want to have something then have it but you will just have to work harder in your exercise routine to compensate for it. It really is about finding the balance.

This programme has taught me how I want to live my life I don’t want to constantly be on a diet which I end up breaking, I want to live a healthy lifestyle where I can have treats now and then and this programme has made me realise this is possible. I am so happy with what I have achieved in the last 10 weeks but I still have a long way to go and I’m excited to continue on this journey in the graduate group.”

Amy age 40

“Started this plan wanting to get lean. Although I’ve still got work to do I feel well on the way to achieving my goal.

For me it’s not just about a change in body but also a change in mindset and this is the best part about it as it makes it sustainable long term. Steve and his fab team have taught me so much in 10 weeks.  

After over 20 years of constant on and off dieting this really works!”

Charlotte age 31

“After seeing The Fitness Guy repeatedly pop up on my ‘suggested pages’ on Facebook, I decided to do my own research online and signed up. If I’m honest I wasn’t sure it would ‘work’, in fact I was convinced it wouldn’t! I had tried many a diet and fitness programme before without success and the only one I had had any success with made me miserable thanks to a restricted diet and little support. I’m also not very good at sticking to things; often starting full of enthusiasm that dwindles off in a few weeks or when things get tough.

I opened the meal plan apprehensively; but to my surprise it was full of foods I recognised and, on the whole, quite liked. Throughout the 10 weeks new ideas and recipes appeared in the group some of which I’m still to try but can’t wait!

It took a couple of weeks to get into the swing of things but very quickly it stopped feeling like I was on a ‘diet’; I just felt like this was my normal day to day life! Steve and the team took the time to explain macros and why they were so important and the team were always on hand for support.

The exercises were great in that I could do them at home, didn’t need equipment and it didn’t matter if I struggled because there were always modifiers. Steve drummed home a very important message; it’s about YOUR 100% and you’re not competing with anyone else.

10 weeks and lots of cm’ s later, I’m well on my way to being a fitter, healthier, slimmer and most importantly happier version of myself. There’s still a way to go but I really have learned that this is a lifestyle not a ‘diet’ and I can’t wait to see how i can progress in the next weeks and months with the support of TFG team and the lovely ladies in the group!”

Kelly age 43

“TFG has given me all of the tools I need for a new and improved me. The food plan is easy to follow, I didn’t feel hungry or that I was missing out on food.  The workouts are challenging, but the length and frequency is easy to follow.  I enjoyed being part of a group to share success, fails and the support of the others and TFG himself.”

Michelle age 43

“Signing up to the 10 Week Lean and Learn programme with The Fitness Guy is one of the best things I have ever done for myself.  I have been educated about food, learned about macronutrients and seen exactly where I was going wrong before.

Because I am a runner I always though I could eat what I liked – definitely not the case!!  This programme has made a massive difference to my life – my body is so much stronger with the weekly workouts and I’m delighted with my weight and cms loss, I’m now in the graduate group and continuing my healthy, happy lifestyle.  Thanks so much Steve!!!”

Louise age 48

“After having a baby and struggling to lose weight I decided that this was the best option for me, I had seen so many transformation photos and though that this was exactly what I needed.  I was very apprehensive when I first signed up, after trying so many other diets and eating plans as I didn’t really know what to expect.  


It turned out that this was very simple to follow, the meal plans are easy to understand and the whole family is eating the same meals as me.  I never felt hungry either which really surprised me and I never felt like I was on a diet.   


This programme has given me the confidence to be able to make healthier food choices going forward, no food is off limits and it’s all about finding the balance now.  Looking back I am so glad I decided to go ahead with this plan, it was the best decision I ever made!”

Michelle age 37

“I joined this group to lose weight after the birth of my second child and get back into my old clothes in time for summer.

This plan was so easy to follow, the menus were great and I tried many foods I would have avoided before. Our family meal times have changed and we all now enjoy more healthy and nutritious meals.  

I achieved my goal within the 10 weeks and will continue on to the graduate group to maintain my weight and perhaps lose a wee bit more.  It’s fair to say I am in a happy place as far as my body is concerned and love my healthier lifestyle.  

Steve, Graeme and Jodie provided excellent support and advice throughout the 10 weeks.  The exercise videos provided each week were challenging but achievable and there was no pressure to do exercises you felt unable to do.  

This plan was most definitely about ‘Finding The Balance’.  I enjoyed several nights out and weekends away with friends and family without worrying about the extra calories.  

I would highly recommend this plan to anyone who is looking to adopt a healthier and happier lifestyle while still having fun.” 

Susan age 31

“I managed to lose some weight on my own before I joined this programme, but I had been stuck for over a year making no progress, whilst I regularly did exercise I couldn’t lose any more weight.

I was searching for a programme which combined healthy eating with exercise, as I wanted to get away from low calorie crash diets and concentrate on real food and real results with a focus on being lean and fit.

This programme has been amazing, I’ve learned what to eat, and more importantly how much food I can eat and I’ve lost consistently over the 10 weeks, I can’t wait to continue and with the ongoing support offered by this programme I plan to continue my journey to getting lean and fit!!”

Donna age 39

“This programme is fantastic. It’s not like other ‘diets’ as this one is a complete mindset change. It teaches you so much in terms of the foods to eat and has opened up a whole new range of foods. It has not seemed at all like a struggle and the great thing is nothing is banned, it’s all about being accountable for your food intake and balancing it out. I now feel so much better about myself and my energy levels have increased and genuinely feel my quality of life has changed.

The way the programme is set up is great as you not only have the support of the other people going through the same as you but Steve and Jodie are on hand to answer all your questions, no matter how small.  The encouragement they provide is infectious and pushes you to keep going to reach your target.

It has been awesome and I cannot recommend the 10 week lean and learn enough.”

Karen age 39

“Needed a boost to lose the remainder of my pregnancy weight and I did it! The plan has been great, got me eating the right things and nothing is off limit! Lots of variety!

Best thing I have done and I’m going to continue with it! Just do it you won’t regret it! Steve, Graeme and Jodie are great, offering loads of support!” 

Kara age 52

Before this programme I truly was feeling like a grandma this year, coming home from a very stressful job with no energy and no inclination to do anything outside of home.

This programme has not only allowed me to lose some weight and get a wee bit fitter than before, it has given me back my energy and enthusiasm for life too. I still get stressed by work and there have been weeks where I didnt have the energy to put in much effort but the support from the group along with the feedback, tips and enthusiasm.inspiration provided by you guys has been phenomenal and keeps me going when I would otherwise have given up.

As the weeks go by my energy increases and I see the small changes in my body and how much nicer my clothes feel (no more muffin top!!) which leads to enthusiasm levels increasing. My husband has even commented on how different I look and how much more confident I seem 🙂 I have never felt hungry or as if I was missing out during this programme, nothing being off limits and everything in moderation 🙂 found the balance

I now eat fabulous healthy meals (probably more food than before) and go to the gym when I can as well and fit in your workouts in a morning when I can – a complete change of lifestyle.  I now see this as a way of life and am looking forward to getting fitter and more toned in coming weeks.”

Dawn age 34

“Love this programme!!

When I’ve tried to lose weight previously I’ve literally been starving as I’ve cut back too much and as a result never stuck to it. Nothing is banned and social events can be easily fitted into the plan which makes it easier to stick to long term. It’s definitely a lifestyle change rather than a diet.

I’ve had a few blips along the way but as Steve says “find the balance”. It’s about consistency, exercising and eating well the majority of the time. I now do a mix of HIIT workouts and running every week and love it! I’ve dropped a dress size and feel so much better for it.

Highly recommend to everyone.” 

Penny age 37

“I joined the 10 week lean and learn programme after it coming highly recommended by a friend! Having had three children over the last 7 years, I was very conscious that I was doing no exercise and had some poor eating habits at times. I was keen to loose the last of the baby bulge, tone up and just generally feel healthier and happier. I needed to be able to juggle this with working and looking after the family so it needed to be a plan that was straightforward to follow. It was also important that I could fit in the exercise at home.

I cannot recommend this plan highly enough!!! The food on the plan was great and my family enjoyed it as much as I did! We were inundated with tasty recipes and I learned so much about good food choices, swapping foods around and managing my macros.

I loved the workouts and found myself looking forward to exercising for the first time ever!

Steve and Jodie are an amazing support throughout and I was in a group with lots of lovely ladies and we all helped to encourage and help one another along the way.

If you are considering this plan do not hesitate at all!! I am now looking forward to continuing my new lifestyle with the help of the support group under the fabulous guidance of Steve and Jodie! Thanks so much again – it was a blast!!”

Jemma age 35

“I started lean and learn because being a busy working mum of 2 children aged 3 and 9 my weight was escalating, my blood pressure was high and I had no energy and a thousand excuses not to do anything about it. My husband is in the Navy so getting into the habit of having ‘weekend treats ‘ when was home made me always weigh on a Friday in an attempt to get away with blowing it all on a weekend.  The first big lesson from lean and learn was stopping this bingeing at the weekend for a treat or reward. I learnt I can have everything and stay in control.

In the course of 10 weeks I have lost 16kgs and 54cms all over. I have gone from a size 20 to a comfortable 16. I absolutely love feeling fitter; I have much more energy, seek out every opportunity I can to exercise and can now plank for a minute and run 4 miles. The eating plan manageable and flexible for a busy family.  I’m actually eating more than I used to, just the right stuff!

My goals are to get down to a size 14, ride a horse again and complete a 10k. My blood pressure has dropped. The support of the other women on the board was fantastic and everyone is in the same boat. I had my off days but they help you through and the support of Steve and Jodie and the team is really motivating.

If you’re thinking about it go for it, give it your 100% and put yourself first. It’s hard work but totally rewarding and the best thing I’ve done in years for myself and my children.”


Janice age 53

“As someone who has always been pretty rubbish at exercising and diets, I am surprised and excited at my results after only 10 weeks!  I will definitely continue with everything I have learned.  I feel healthier, more energetic and motivated than I have in many years. Friends have commented  on how good I look and all ask how I did it 😊I tell them it’s down to The Fitness Guy and the team. It’s not just the physical change but the emotional and knowledge gain too.”

Carol age 50

“I couldn’t believe the difference when I saw the photos – so so delighted! Hopefully my hips and thighs are next to go!  I can’t believe how different my mind set is. I actually believe in myself and have so much more confidence. What an amazing feeling! Thank you!

I would never have dreamed of doing something like Tough Mudder but yet I did it!  I’ve now booked up for more events – I feel setting myself goals gives me something to aim for.

I went shopping with my daughter on Saturday and had a ball. Usually I would buy clothes, take them home and try them on in the safety of my own room. This time they were all tried on in the shop confidently strutting out the changing room to look in the mirror! Me? Really? Loved it and bought heaps. I kept asking my daughter “are you sure it fits me?” Lol!

Lastly, the difference this has made to my marriage is amazing. Hubby has decided to really change his eating habits and is now joining me with my workouts. He has also signed up for Banchory Beast with me.

Very cliche but I feel like a different person inside and out. I would never have believed this plan would change how I feel so much. You don’t know any psychologist who would like to be involved – I’ll be the results would be fascinating!”



Lee age 43

“I have never quite managed to lose weight and keep it off, exercise gave me short term results but I was never able to make a change that really stuck.

This is different, I love the meal plan and the fact it includes loads of great food and treats, the exercise routines are tough but keep you challenging yourself and for me the accountability ensured I gave it my all.

I have achieved more than I thought possible. I feel fitter, healthier and more confident with my new body shape but above all I have learnt so much and determined to make this change permanent, with Steve and Jodie’s support I know I can.”

Josie age 42

“I have been struggling with my weight for 10 years trying all sorts of diets which at the start of each saw results in terms of the numbers on the scales going down, however my shape was not changing so I fell back into old habits.  With this programme and the support of Steve, Jodie and fellow ladies I have seen great results in just 10 weeks.  You learn a number of things including combining the correct foods to ensure that you maintain health, burn fat and build tone and also that the numbers on the scales matter little.  Yes that’s right you can, with this programme lose centimetres seeing a change in your body shape and dress size however the numbers in the scales may not reduce that much.

If you are thinking about joining this programme however are unsure then I encourage you to sign up.  I promise you will not regret it.  It is important to mention here that this is NOT a DIET. 

I was unsure as to whether to sign up so I scrolled though the stories on the Facebook page looking for people who at the start where a similar shape to me, I then read their story and reviewed their results.  I can honestly say that while we all tone differently my new shape is on a par with the people I originally looked at.

The programme does not stop at 10 weeks, you are on a learning curve to prepare you for the future so that you can continue to lose centimetres or maintain your new shape if you have reached your target.  

The support you receive is first rate and the encouragement from fellow ladies keeps you going.  You will also love the food which the whole family can enjoy.  It is true on the programme you will learn to find the balance and see fantastic results.”

Hazel age 38

“After having 2 kids I had pretty much resigned myself to never really getting my body back to how it was. It’s true in a way, as I will always have stretch marks & scars. BUT…after just 10 weeks I’ve not just lost the baby weight from both my babies but I’m now also just 5lb from the weight I was on my wedding day 7 years ago.

Today I took a boot load of black bags full of clothes to the charity shop. Some of these things were things I’d bought only a few weeks ago. But they just drown me now!

It was a great feeling to be in a shop looking at a size 12 jacket (when I was previously in a 14) & having the shop assistant come up & tell me (before I even tried it on) that a 12 would do nothing for me & I should try a size 10. I was sceptical…but she was right. It fit like a glove! Amazing!

Aside from the aesthetic factor I also feel brighter, happier, more confident & I have loads more energy, even running round after a 3.5 yr old & a 6 month old!  People are starting to notice the change now & I could never tire of all the lovely compliments.

I’m so pleased that after so many attempts to do this on my own I’ve finally succeeded. A meal plan with easy, accessible foods & workouts that can be done in the privacy of my own home with no equipment made it realistic, achievable & a totally rockin plan! Fillet steak & a dairy milk on a Saturday night helped a lot too!

The success I’ve had is largely due to the fantastic support within the lean & learn group (I love you ladies-you’re all awesome!) & of course from the fabulous Steve & Jodie Bradley. Keep doing what you’re doing you two, because you’re changing lives!”

Sasha age 35

“This plan has been amazing it has changed my way of eating forever! I have always done a lot of exercise but didn’t eat very well.

A friend recommended this programme and seeing her results I decided to sign up. It is the first eating plan I have ever stuck to, I love the food and it is easy to prepare and the exercise is easy to fit into your day.

I am amazed at my progress in 10 weeks, my clothes fit better and I have so much more energy, looking forward to the support group! Thank you so much Steve and Jodie for this plan”

Cara age 31

Last year, after virtually no exercise all my adult lift and after having 2 kids I decided the time was right for me to have some “me time” I took up running.  I done really well and in 3 months had ran my 1st 10k. I totally had a buzz for it. My maternity leave passed and I found it more difficult to get those running trainers on, in between working, looking after the kids and just daily things around the house.

I have followed The Fitness Guy and 10 Week Lean and Learn pages on Facebook for quite some time and always thought everyone had done amazingly well on this programme, so that was enough for me to sign myself up. Exercise 3 times per week, eat the right things (I can do that) I kept telling myself.

I have never been big, but always had about 1/2 stone that I couldn’t seem to shift after having my eldest nearly 8 years ago.

Well I must say, this is the first programme that I have done and I have not been disappointed !! I was put in a group with the most lovely of people, who all had similar goals to myself, so we were all there for each other. Steve and Jodie have been absolutely amazing, they go above and beyond to help you smash your goals.  They are always there to answer any questions that you have.

My husband is proud of me and thinks I look fab ! I lost that 1/2 stone, so chuffed !! My family know that I have never had a love for cooking, but the recipes have been fab help to me, and not only do my family think that their mummy is leaner, fitter and stronger, she’s leaner, fitter, stronger and she can COOK (well a lot better than 10 weeks ago) so hats off to you Steve and Jodie for that alone 🙂

Looking forward to moving in to the support group with my Group 1 buddies and meeting some buddies from the other groups along the way.”

Shanna age 39

“As a working mum who also has to bring home work some evenings – the 20 minute workouts were easy to fit into my routine – I didn’t have to pack a bag or travel to the swimming pool.  My little spare time was put to the best use. This has been the biggest change for me as previously I did hee haw in the way of exercise!

The meal plans were perfect – as an avid foodie and someone who has never really go junk food, I have been able to become better at portion control (I was eating lots of the right foods but the balance was wrong) and have been shown some better snack choices.  Some of the products you’ve endorsed or included in the plan were new to me – eg greek yoghurts, soreen loaf, rice cakes, but I will continue to have these in my cupboards and on my shopping lists.

Most importantly for me, the way that you both come across, through your posts and videos made me feel comfortable in following your advice. You were professional but personable, encouraging without being insincere or making me feel judged or inferior.  You came across as real people, with a real family life and I could relate to you which made it easier for me to follow your advice/and the programme.”

Kerry age 38

“Having tried a lot of different “diets” in the past, this is definitely the lifestyle change I have been looking for with great results.

I am so happy that I did this and will continue on with this lifestyle change.  I notice such a difference in the 10 weeks and feel so much healthier now.”

Jackie age 41

I can’t believe this part of my journey has finished, it must be the first time I have ever completed anything (especially when it comes to fitness!) I cannot thank you and Jodie enough, without you both and the girls in the group I would still look like my first pictures. Now I enjoy fitness and get annoyed when I can’t do any due to injury or illness, something I never thought I say!

It’s been a rollercoaster of a ride the last 10 weeks some weeks I never thought I get through. Knowing there was someone in the group who can help me through the sweet cravings helped me so much and was given the best advice – do a workout! Certainly takes the edge off wanting to burry your face in chocolate!

I am excited about what my future holds for me, I’m planning on walking the West Highland Way next year for my 40th and none of this would have been possible had I not joined your programme 🙂  I now understand the meaning of a balanced diet thanks to you. I always thought I ate “good” foods but I was wrong, I was way over carbs and not enough protein. The learning is so valuable and something that will never leave me, the choices I make for my girls now are way better too, it’s a family thing now.  The difference in my house in unbelievable. Sophie, my youngest, talks more on fitness and we compare exercises when she does her gymnastics 🙂 I feel part of her in this way 🙂 I am proud to be a role model for them now 🙂

Health wise, well it’s definitely improved!!! My asthma is pretty non-existent, I can’t remember the last time I took it. I sleep!!! Before the programme I used to live on a few hours sleep a day. I would be very short tempered, grumpy and quite down. Now, I sleep 8hrs a day and feel amazing, I have more patience, tolerance and definitely not as grumpy (although Ross may feel different haha). My confidence has come back, so much so I applied for college and got a place on an HNC pre nursing course 🙂 I plan to be a Nurse and it’s all thanks to this programme 🙂

This is only the beginning of my journey to health and very much looking forward to the next part :)”



Sarah age 41

“After seeing the amazing success photos on FB and speaking to friends who had had great success on the Lean and Learn programme I decided to bite the bullet and sign up.

I was a bit apprehensive as I knew the 10 weeks would include many pre planned social occasions and wasn’t sure how it would go, but with Steve and Jodie’s guidance this was not  problem.

The programme fitted in so easily with family life.  Meals being food all the family could and would eat was a huge bonus! The kids loved joining in with the workouts too!

I have suffered from lower back pain for approx. 5 years which meant getting out of bed most mornings was a struggle.  On week 7 of the plan my daughter commented that “doing your exercises is really good mummy as I can see you don’t have a sore back anymore” she was right!

I have lost 13cm off my waist, 10cm of my hips and lost 9.5Kgs.  My back pain and energy levels have improved greatly and am delighted with the progress I have made.

The support and guidance from Steve, Jodie and the other ladies in the group was second to none – thank you.  I can’t recommend the plan enough.”

Tess age 37

“I am over the moon with my 10 week results and actually cried when I saw the pics.  I can’t say thank you enough to Steve and Jodie for putting together this plan and for the support they have given me over the last 10 weeks.

I have always struggled with my weight and whilst I have exercised a lot over the last few years I was not noticing a huge difference. Joining this programme is the best decision I have ever made and I know now how to find the balance and still get the results I want. I am feeling fit and healthy and ready to smash the next stage!”

Jill age 35

“I started this programme after seeing the amazing results on Steve’s FB page. I needed to lose weight and tone up and this was the push that I needed.

I have learnt so much from this programme.  I was going to classes regularly and thought I was eating the right foods BUT how wrong was I! I was constantly tired but not long after starting this plan, my energy levels went through the roof.  I now have a much better understanding of the foods that I should be eating and how much I should be eating.

The workouts are great. They are only 20 minute workouts so I have no excuse not to fit this in in the evening once my Daughter is in bed.  You get a new workout each week so it is very varied.

The support from Steve, Jodie and the other ladies in my group was amazing. If you have any questions, Steve and Jodie are always on hand to offer advice.

I have now finished the 10 week plan and have lost nearly a stone. I am so proud of what I have achieved so far. I still have a bit of work to do but I am determined to get this body in shape. This is a new way of living for me and it is totally maintainable. I would recommend this anyone.”

Angie age 40

“I was so apprehensive about joining the Fitness Guy Programme and wondering, will it work, will I actually see results within 10 weeks?.

Well I am so glad that I took the plunge and joined. 10 weeks on and I am the fittest I have been in years and look the best (body shape wise) that I have looked in such a long time.

The plan is so easy to follow and the support received from Steve, and Graeme is just fantastic. The exercises are brilliant too and it’s only 20mins minimum 3 times per week so my advice to you would be to grab the bull by the horns and just sign up”

Julia age 42

“I have never stuck to diets as I like my food too much. However, this has been really easy and all the meals have slotted into our family life, so no separate meals for anyone! Workouts have been hard at times but at the end of the 10 weeks, it has all paid off and I’m amazed and delighted by the results!

Anyone having doubts about joining, don’t as you won’t regret it.”

Dawn age 41

“Having always been one to reluctantly sign up for diets and faddy food plans, after a lot of careful consideration, I decided I’d try The Fitness Guy’s 10 Week Lean & Learn programme.  My sweet tooth, high-carb tendency and busy- mum lifestyle was getting the better of me. I felt lethargic and wanted to shed the unwanted weight and become strong and energised.  My husband encouraged me all the way and was delighted when I signed up.  We both want and continue to try and set healthy goals for all the family and this feels like it’s just the start.

As early as 3 weeks into the 10-week plan I felt so much better and was toning up almost immediately and dropping some lbs.  The plan is very straightforward to follow, and I needed it to be to keep me on the straight and narrow!  The fitness workouts are very ‘do-able’ and enjoyable and I think everyone could find the time to get their workouts done each week. Before I knew it I was full flow and really enjoying it.

I feel better than I’ve felt for pretty much all of my adult life and feel so positive.  It’s been an education to say the least on the food side of things.  Portion control, healthy alternatives for snacks.  Thinking about my food rather than just eating for the sake of it and not even really enjoying it anyway!

I’ve loved every minute and would recommend the plan to everyone!  At the end of the 10-weeks, I’ve come out of it feeling fantastic.  I have slimmed down, toned up and even gained some muscle definition which I’m thrilled about.  Feel very vital and ready for more!”

Tania age 53

“I would just like to say to anyone thinking of joining this programme ” DO IT.

I hummed ‘n heyed for weeks as I doubted myself and thought I would be unable to do the workouts.  It is very easy to follow and it can be done at a level that each individual feels comfortable with.   I will say it is hard and commitment is required but it is so so  worth it.

Great support and advice from Steve & Jodie throughout, and also the other girls in the group.”

Pam age 37

“I have found the plan and all the support that goes along with it fantastic.

Having tried various different diets along the way I have finally learned how to eat right. Quality and varied food suggestions that are so family friendly it makes it so easy – even my hubby has joined in. The workouts are challenging and encourage me to give my 100%.

Have highly recommended to many friends who are now all willing ‘victims’. Awesome programme that has been fab for helping me find me again.”

Sandy age 37

“I had seen the ads for the lean & learn programme & thought it looked great but never had the confidence to do it.

After years of yoyo dieting & gradually getting heavier and heavier I decided it was time to do something to change my life for myself. Having a teenage daughter I also didn’t want her getting fixated on weight and falling into bad patterns like her mum.

It’s been one of the best things I’ve ever did. Its a learning curve all throughout the programme teaching you how to eat correctly (& wow you eat really well!) and introducing exercise into your life, just short but manageable exercises (which I sometimes even managed to rope my daughter and  husband in to do  🙂 ) but its done in such a relaxed and encouraging way that it builds you up and before you know it its all second nature.

My group of girls were fantastic & such a great support network to have. Steve & Jodie really are fabulous and really guide & support and help you every step of the way. I’ve done well so far but I still have a bit to go but I know because of this programme and the continued support I’m receiving I’m going to get to my target and I’m going to stay there. My advice would be just do it, you wont regret it! :-)”

Katie age 39

“Huge thanks to Steve and Jodie…….I absolutely loved this program.

I found it really easy to follow and the workouts were really fun .I loved that they were just 20 minutes and I could do them anywhere.

I never imagined I would loose as much weight or centimetres ,but I’m down a dress size on the top and bottom, I feel amazing.

I’m looking forward to continuing in the support group.”

Lesley age 34


“I signed up as although I loved exercising my eating wasn’t good at all and wanted to learn how to fuel my body properly. I’d done various diet plans in the past which had gone okay but never maintained weight losses.

This plan has taught me so much about food, eating healthily and exercising and also that it’s not all about the scales it’s about learning to feel good on the inside and out!

There’s nothing that I haven’t eaten, yes I’ve had crisps and chocolate and also a few cheeky G&Ts! I have never felt hungry and I am fitter and stronger now than I have ever been!! I can’t wait to continue on my journey…..this is a way of life now ❤️

Please, if you are thinking of signing up just go for it honestly you will NOT regret it!!”

Mhairi age 29

” I found this programme so easy to fit in around family life, both my hubby and 2 year old have been happy with the food!  I never felt hungry, eating the right things means you really can eat lots!

And the 20min workouts are so tough but you feel amazing afterwards! A win win programme all round that really works – without feeling hungry or spending hours in the gym.

The online support is great for keeping you on track too – I’m a big comfort eater but I would definitely say I’m on track to changing my ways.”

Hazel age 61

“I wholeheartedly encourage anyone wanting to get back in control of their weight to enrol on this 10 Week Lean and Learn programme.

I had been eating healthy foods for years, avoiding processed / pre-cooked meals but was still slowly gaining weight. I’m over 60 years old and was convinced that nothing could possibly make a difference. Then a friend told me about Lean and Learn.

I was sceptical but willing to give it a go and now 10 (very short) weeks later I’m one and a half stone lighter and more than one dress size smaller.  I’m still on my journey but know that I am going to get to my goal of a healthy weight and toned body.

The support from Steve Bradley and from others in the same group as me proved invaluable and as well as shedding the equivalent of 17 x 500g tubs of butter I am noticeably more flexible and stronger.”

Amanda age 33

“The last 10 weeks have been amazing!!  I started this program as I’ve got young children and after years of sleepless nights I’d gotten into bad eating and exercise habits and just ran out of energy and struggled to motivate myself to change.

The support and encouragement I received from Steve, Jodie and the girls in the group really kept me going.   This was a lifestyle change that really did fit in with my family and has made a positive change with all of us.  I really can’t recommend this enough.  Thank you so much!!”

Melanie age 29

“I have absolutely loved the programme and made great progress.

The plan was very easy to follow and fitted in with family meals which was really important to me. It has shown me that eating a balanced healthy diet does not have to be boring and I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of food I was eating and still losing weight week after week!

A fantastic service and a great start to life long lifestyle changes.”

Kara age 38

“I joined this program as I felt I was stuck in a rut, the weight was creeping up and although I was exercising it wasn’t shifting the weight.

This program is fantastic. The meal plans are great, very flexible and easy to fit into family life. The exercises are easy to follow and maintain. Lastly the support from Steve, Jodie and your support groups is great. In the 10 weeks I lost 12lbs and I feel amazing! I would definitely recommend doing this program!” 

Lucy age 33

“I came across the Lean & Learn plan on my news feed one day and it was the “before & after” photos that really caught my attention.

I have always been quite a sporty person; attending weekly gym classes, running an average of 10-15kms a week as well as weight training in the gym and although I thought I ate fairly healthy, I really struggled with trying to shift the dreaded fat and tone up. After further research and reading all the comments, I decided to take the plunge and sign up. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made!

I was initially quite nervous about the food side of things as I had assumed we were going to have to cut certain foods out but how wrong was I?? When I saw the food plan I was over the moon; nothing was off limits. It was all about finding the balance and the fact I could EAT cheese – my favourite thing – I knew I had hit the jackpot with this plan.

Steve has totally re-educated me on weight, body fat, food and exercise and as a result my whole outlook has completely changed. I didn’t lose a huge amount of weight at the end of the 10 weeks – only 3kg – but I did lose over 27cms of body fat which is hugely satisfying and when I saw my ‘before and after’ photos I was amazed at the difference in body shape. I had a waist line again (!!) plus my tummy and legs were looking nice and toned which was a complete first for me.

I have continued to find the balance whilst still enjoying nights out. You only get back what you put into this plan but if you want something that works then sign up to The Fitness Guy’s 10 Week Lean & Learn Plan, it’s definitely been worth every penny. And lastly, the support you get from Steve, Jodie and other girls is unreal. Join up now, you absolutely won’t regret it!!!!!”

Sheena age 32

“Since giving birth to my 2nd child, I had lost all my confidence and was feeling unhappy with my post-baby body, however I wasn’t really doing much to change things except skipping meals to try and lose weight – not sensible!

Then I heard about lean and learn! I was a bit apprehensive at first as I’m not one to partake in any exercise regimes but I was wrong to be! The 20min workouts were easy to fit in around nap times or in the evenings! The meal plan was really simple to follow and included a lot of foods my family already enjoyed – bonus!!

I’m delighted with my results so far! I’m feeling fitter, clothes are looking better and I’m gaining my confidence back! Going to keep up with the exercise and will be continuing the plan with further support from Steve and Jodie who have been fantastic motivators and a great source of knowledge!! Can’t recommend this programme enough! Thank you!!”

Moina age 34

“My aim when starting this programme was to loose a bit of weight and learn which foods I should be eating as well as guiding my portion sizes.

The programme has far exceeded my expectations, I’ve lost more weight than I ever thought I could in 10 weeks. I’m now the same weight I was 10 years ago!!

My mind set has changed towards food too. The support and guidance has been absolutely fantastic! Thank you so very much to the ladies in my group and a huge thank you to Jodie & Steve.”

Emily age 39

“Over the years I have tried many different diets and fitness plans and found that after a while of being really dedicated I would revert back to my old ways as on these diets certain foods were not allowed and I felt I was denying myself the foods I enjoyed. I started looking for something that would educate me on nutrition and an exercise plan that would fit into my busy schedule raising three young children and running my own business when I discovered the Lean and Learn group.

I joined the end of August as my “big” birthday was looming in December and wanted to get fitter, lose weight and feel good in my body once and for all.

10 weeks on and I am amazed with the transformation in my body shape, fitness levels and overall well being. I am at the lowest weight I have been in nearly 6 years and the compliments I am getting from friends I haven’t seen in ages is mind blowing.

I am so looking forward to the next 8 weeks before Christmas to see how much more I can achieve.  This plan is so easy to follow and all the meals are suitable for the family so no more trying to cook two different meals each mealtime and the workouts are easy to fit in around my busy day running here, there and everywhere with the kids.  I can’t thank Steve and Jodie enough for all the support and not forgetting the other ladies in my group who have supported me with their stories over the past 10 weeks.”

Donna age 33

“I started the 10 Week Lean & Learn Programme and I recommend this to anyone who’s yo-yo dieted.  Its completely changed my eating habits and my outlook on food.

Before the programme, I would eat chocolate and sweets every single day even when I was on a diet I would factor this in to the calories in my day.  But on this programme, I’ve managed to kick my junk food habits and make me in charge of the food that I choose to eat. I love the food on the menu and I have so much more energy than before.

At first I found the exercises a challenge as I wasn’t used to doing that kind of exercises but I soon eased myself into it and now it’s just part of my weekly routine.  I’m so glad I signed up.”

Faye age 50

“I can’t really believe what I have achieved in 10 weeks.

Exercises were a wee bit daunting in the beginning but kept on pushing and now love it! I am like a new person!   In mind, attitude & looks!

I highly recommend this programme.  If I can do it, anyone can.”


Kara age 32

“This programme has been perfect for me. I am so happy with my results in 10 weeks.

Im a social butterfly who enjoys eating and drinking and that has not been interfered with. I have learned how to manage my lifestyle with extra exercice and planned meals at other points throughout the week.

The programme is so simple and once you’ve got it, you’ve got it. Who knew hitting 3 main macro targets could be so effective?

Thanks so much to Steve, Jodie and the ladies in my group. The education, support, advice and motivation has been invaluable.

If you want a healthier lifestyle then join the programme. I’m leaner and I have learned”

Tina age 36

“Thank you Steve and Jodie for this fab programme.

Having always been thin (size 8-10) in the five years after having my second child I steadily increased in size and weight, a comment from my brother in the summer made me bite the bullet and sign up for the 10week lean and lean programme.

I was terrified of what it might be like……I shouldn’t have been, it’s easy to follow, fun and you can have chocolate, peanut butter and eggs!  I’ve found the love of food that’s healthy and how to manage macros!

Looking forward to continued results!”


Melissa age 36

“After my 3rd baby I started weight watchers – although my weight went down I wasn’t happy with my body shape. I just wanted to feel like ‘me’ again.

I had noticed the lean and learn posts on Facebook and got a glowing recommendation from my sister who had also done the plan. I thought I would give it a go.

By the end of week 1 I knew I had made the right choice. It’s not about how much you weigh, it’s about getting healthier, getting leaner and actually understanding food. I have never felt leaner, healthier, stronger and more content with my body.

Steve and Jodie are on hand to help and answer questions. Can genuinely recommend this program. Would also say you will only get out what you put in!”

Pamela age 38

“I’m over the moon with my 10 week results!

When I joined I didn’t think Iwould last 2 weeks just like diets I had done in the past, but it’s been a total lifestyle change for me. I’ve dropped a dress size and have so much more energy, just what I signed up to achieve!

The exercises are fab as only 20 mins which I find easy to fit in being a full time working mum. The support in the group is fantastic too! Thank you so much from a much happier, leaner me!”

Lorna age 39

I was lucky enough to have been introduced to Steve – TFG through a close friend who had done remarkably well some time back on one of his other plans, and with his support and encouragement I decided to give the 10 week Lean and Learn a bash.

Unlike a lot of the lean and learners in my group I hadn’t joined the programme to specifically lose weight, I had joined the group for a couple of other reasons….1; because I had signed up (on a whim) to run a half marathon at the beginning of October and I had no idea how to fuel my body or make it strong enough to succeed…2; I suffer with IBD in the form of ulcerative colitis and it had started to take control of my life, making me extremely ill and 3; to me this was to be the final piece of the jigsaw of a journey I started a year ago.

Steve helped me from the off by putting my mind at ease with regards to how to use the meal plan to work for my condition and teaching me that all foods on the plan could be swapped to work for me. Once I had my head round Steve’s concept it was remarkably easy, and I never looked back.

In 10 short weeks I haven’t just gained a figure I am proud of, I competed my half marathon at week 9 in an amazing time, and I haven’t had any of my normal debilitating symptoms from my condition. I feel stronger, I feel in control and I feel alive!!

I can’t recommend this programme enough, and thank Steve and Jodie from the bottom of my heart for their support and encouragement on my journey.”

Jackie age 40

“I joined Lean and Learn after being recommended by a friend.  I was sceptical and wondered if I would be able to stick to it but wow, I’m so glad I joined up, this has been the best thing I have ever done when it comes to my health & fitness.

The programme is unbelievable easy to follow, the food is so easy and family friendly, the exercise is fab with new workouts each week to help keep you motivated and which can all be done at home, there is amazing support in the groups from Steve & Jodie and being in a group with ladies who all start on the same day as you is excellent as your all at the same stage and help each other along, the banter is just a bonus!

I’m now 20 weeks in  and I know I will never look back, Im fitter, healthier, leaner and a million times more confident and Im actually looking forward to wearing a bikini in 2017.

Finally Im loving what I see in the mirror..  Thanks so much Steve and Jodie for an outstanding program, every woman deserves to feel like this.”

Jackie age 35

“I signed up to the 10 week lean and learn programme to learn about nutrition, how to enjoy a balanced diet and get fitter, with the hope that I would loose some weight and cm’s.

The programme is really easy to follow and completely family friendly( I have a 1 year old & a 4 year old). The support within the group plus from Steve and Jodie is fantastic. What I have learned will be with me for life. Its been worth every penny and I highly recommend it to everyone.

I am really happy with my results, I have achieved everything I set out to do and more.”

Cass age 36

“I heard so many good things about the Learn and Learn programme from various friends before signing up and after reading up about it on The Fitness Guys website and seeing the progress of so many women I decided to join after my summer holidays in July. I came home after 2 weeks feeling bloated, uninspired and feeling like a stuffed turkey!

My usual approach would have been to punish myself with endless hours of exercise and starve myself by cutting out carbs and eating “healthy” foods.   The plan from Steve was great, there was no starving involved and there was nothing on the menu that I didn’t like. I have to admit when I saw how much food and carbs I was going to be eating I was sceptical to start with however there was no need to be!  The exercise videos that Steve posted each week were great, short, very effective and so easy to squeeze into your day, they were also quite funny at times when Steve forgot what exercise we are doing next – I found myself telling him he was wrong on a few occasions (my family thought I was a mad woman speaking to the TV).

My overall results were surprising, I kept reading in the support group about how much weight some of the ladies had lost and I found myself getting disheartened as my weight didn’t change that much in fact by week 10 my weight had stayed the same but as Steve continually pointed out, it’s the measurements that matter not the scales, and how right he is!!  I am over the moon with my results and am feeling strong, fit and in control of eating habits.  I loved this programme, the support from Steve, Jodie and the ladies in my support group were invaluable, which is why I have chosen to continue with the support group after the programme.  Bring on operation LBD!

If you are in doubt about joining this programme, don’t hesitate any longer, get signed up, it will be the best money you will spend, you might even make some new friends in the process

Zoe age 28

“Really pleased with my weight loss and cm’s lost, ideally would like to lose a couple more kilos so looking forward to carrying on in the support groups.

Have loved the meal plan and exercises as before I used to live on WW bread, microwave meals, never really enjoying them but fearful of eating “normal” food!!

The groups are also great – a real feeling of camaraderie and keep you going even when you’ve had a bad week!!

Thanks so much to both of you and the fantastic support you provide – you’ve no idea how much my relationship with food & exercise has changed since embarking on this!!

Loving life thanks to you and #findingthebalance.”

Jamie age 26

“I joined this plan mainly because I knew I was eating the wrong things to lose weight but actually when I got the plan I wasn’t – my portion sizes were just way too much.

The plan was great and the evening meals worked brilliantly as it was all food my kids would eat so I wasn’t having to cook separate meals. Also, there was chocolate & crisps included! What other diet allows you that guilt free?!

I have noticed a huge difference in my body after 10 weeks – my tummy feels flatter, clothes are comfier and I feel so much more energetic by the end of a working day.

Thanks to Steve, Jodie and the girls in the support group for getting me through the 10 weeks. Looking forward to the next chapter with the support group.”

Pamela age 38

“Having wanted to get back to my weight & fitness before baby came along plus knowing that my eating habits had to change spurred me on to join.

The course has flown by and even though I know I could have done better, there’s no regrets as I still enjoyed social nights out, celebrations and carried it on during relocating to a different city…. it’s that easy!!!!

Brilliant workouts and easy meal plans! After a few weeks with the support and coaching of Steve & Jodie, I felt confident to make my own meal plans concentrating on the macros and calories! This was a lifestyle change and it’s changed mines for the better!

Thanks again to Steve, Jodie and the girls in the group for all the support given!!”

Paula age 37

“I signed up to the 10 week lean and learn because a few folk I knew had either completed it or where midway through and were saying great things about the programme.

I wanted to shed some weight and get fitter and any other programmes I’d followed previously were diets where I did well for a while but the weight slowly crept back on, plus more!

The programme was easy to follow and the virtual personal trainer was easy to fit into my busy schedule of working mon-fri and being a mum to a 6 year old.  I actually began to enjoy the workouts and the release of the endorphins was great post workout!

Steve and Jody are very supportive and on hand to answer any questions, no matter how silly.

I’d really recommend the programme to all as the start in the right direction you need.  I’m educated in making right choices with food now and a new way of thinking that I can maintain.

As Steve would say, “I’m finding the balance”!”

Lynne age 45

“I joined this fantastic plan to learn about fuelling my body in a balanced healthy way which would maximise my efforts in exercise.

I was newly diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes so by planning what I was eating I would be in better control over my blood glucose levels, therefore feel the best I could be.

I felt more energised, my clothes felt great on and people were noticing how well and healthy I was.

For me it’s been ” a no brainer” I’m fitter, healthier, more toned, more confident, sparklier and my smile has got a whole lot bigger!!”

Kerry age 36

“I joined the 10 week lean & learn to hopefully make a change to my eating habits, get weight off & learn some exercise! It has done more than this…it’s changed my whole outlook at food and I love the exercises!

Steve & Jodie are brilliant and were there all the way for support as were the girls on our group…best thing I’ve ever done was sign up!!”

Terri age 37

“As a full time mum of two young boys, I was basically maintaining a weight I was unhappy with. I would stay fairly focused during the week, but binge at the weekend and then spend all week working out at the gym to try to undo some of the over indulgence. I was stuck in a vicious cycle. I couldn’t seem to find any weight loss plans that suited my busy lifestyle until Lean and Learn came along.

The meal plan is so easy to follow and the workouts will push you to your limits but in a good way! You feel so accomplished after you finish and to see the weight coming off and the measurements coming down each week is such a great feeling.

It is amazing what this plan has done for me. I am by far the fittest, healthiest and strongest I have been in years. The 10 weeks flew by. I loved the meal plan and the flexibility to swap out foods and try different recipes. Even my picky kids and husband loved the food. It is all so easy to follow and the support from both Steve and Jodie and the ladies in my group really helped to motivate and encourage me to stick with it.

I just got back into my size 10 jeans and I couldn’t be happier! This is a truly a life changing plan and I can’t recommend it enough!”

Amy age 38

“Having struggled with my weight/shape for years, and having tried the usual slimming clubs with little success, I signed up to Steve’s plan following a recommendation from a friend.

Not once did I feel hungry, or feel I had to sacrifice the foods I enjoyed. The meal plan was easy to follow and fit into family life. The support and encouragement of Steve/Jodie/the rest of the group was outstanding.

The plan has turned my idea of a ‘diet’ on its head, and thanks to Steve, I now feel I have the knowledge I need to succeed in my journey and enable me to finally ‘find the balance’.”

Sam age 38

“I started this plan to learn more about what to eat as after years of running and going to gym I just couldn’t shift the weight with all the fad diets I tried.

This plan has totally changed the way I eat and the choices I make and it does not feel like I’m restricting myself or missing out.  The meal plan is enjoyable and filling and I’m looking forward to continuing with it to help me tone up and trim down some more.

The support and encouragement you get during this diet is second to none and can’t thank the team and other members enough.

Considering how busy I’ve been with social events and holidays during the 10 weeks I definitely feel like I’ve found the balance.”

Rhoda age 38

“This programme has made a world of difference to me.

Being a mum to 2 small children, you put everyone else first and forget about yourself. Not anymore! I am now more confident in who I am, feel much more energised and informed, and feel excited about the future.

Thank you Steve and Jodie for a simple, easy to follow programme. The support and encouragement from you and the rest of the ladies, is priceless.”

Suzanne age 33

“I have really enjoyed this programme.

I’ve always been good at dieting and ok and exercising but have never known how to combine the two to get the best results.

I found the plan really easy to follow and haven’t had to go without anything.

The workouts are great and ideal to do at home whenever I have a spare 30 mins.

I’m really pleased with my results and feel confident to continue with my new lifestyle “finding the balance”.”

Nadia age 42

“This has been the best ever decision I’ve made in a LONG time.

I’ve learned so much more than just healthy eating: I’ve grown in confidence and shrunk in size, fitness improved big time and my eating habits are spot on ! Even my major sweet tooth has literally disappeared!!

The best support you could ask for from the brilliant Steve and Jodie and the fun and laughter we’ve had in group along the way has been the best.

The food is easy and fits into everyday life, this was the fastest 10 weeks ever my only regret is not doing it sooner ! Loving the new me.”

Leigh age 32

“The past 10 weeks have been an incredible journey for me, I feel like a whole new person with thanks to Steve, Jodie and all the lovely ladies from the group.  

As a mum of 2 young children, I found the lean and learn program fit in nicely with hectic family life. The exercises were challenging but enjoyable and I loved that it gave me time for myself.  

At the start of the program I did push ups against the wall and after just 10 weeks I’m doing them on the floor (something I haven’t managed before)!

The best part I’ve learnt from the program was finding the balance but still being able to enjoy food and drink!” 

Kimberley age 38

“I would say, this programme has been a life changing experience and has made me change my whole outlook on life, food and myself.

All the positivity from the groups was fantastic motivation to keep going even if you were having a bad day. Jodie and Steve were always there for all the support advice even on all the stupid panic questions /thoughts that you had.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone not only for weight loss but for pure motivation and accountability. I absolutely loved every minute of it and so glad to be part of the support group with other lean ladies it truly is amazing.” 

Kay age 37

“I embarked on my lean journey ten weeks ago and have been pleasantly surprised how easy it was to adapt meals and snacks without completely changing the meals I eat and the fact that my kids were able to eat the same made life alot more simple.  

I used to feel tired a lot and have a big dip in energy mid afternoon, but by making some relatively small changes to my eating habits I don’t get the same fatigue and now have the energy to workout. It is really handy being able to do the workouts at home at a time that is convenient to me especially with two young children and a husband who works away a month at a time.  

The program is incredibly good value for money given the advice, support, recipes and exercises provided. I would recommend it to anyone who needs just a little boost to change their shape or weight.”

Penny age 41

“This Lean and Learn 10 week programme is excellent.  

I didn’t have a massive amount to lose but I had let my weight creep up over the last few years.  Prior to this my relationship with food was completely wrong.  I was basically living on fresh air some days and wondering why I wasn’t loosing any weight.  

I now eat more than I ever have which helped me actually loose weight and now enables me control it.  This is because I have the knowledge to eat the RIGHT foods and do not underestimate how much knowledge you will get from this! The meal plan is so easy to follow with easy meals to prepare which both myself and my daughter really enjoyed and the weekly exercises were great.

 There is constant support from Steve & Jodie and when I say constant, I mean constant! Every single question I had was answered within a couple of hours very concisely.  The support group was fantastic with all us ladies motivating each other.  If you are swithering about doing it, swither no more. I cannot recommend it enough!”

Heather age 38

Do you have, what feels like, every fitness DVD ever produced? Is your kitchen cupboard bursting with what feels like every fitness cookbook ever written? Have you tried, tried again and gone for the third time lucky approach? Have you lost weight put it back on, lost it put it back on, lost it, put it back on?

If you are shouting YES, YES, YES! at your computer screen as you read this then keep on reading. The Fitness Guy is THEE program for you! I was one of those people described above but in 10 weeks by body and my life has been transformed. The best bit about this program is that you are NEVER on your own – Steve and Jodie are constantly there, the ladies in your group offer daily support/advice and the occasional kick up the behind that is needed and you are supported through each and every stage of it.

The weight starts to drop off instantly with the fantastic food guides – I have NEVER eaten so much but lost weight at the same time! The weekly workouts are great – clearly explained, different effort levels shown and positive encouragement throughout (Steve is the only person I know who can laugh whilst doing Burpees 😉 ) You will quickly start to see the results – tracking your weight and measurement loss helps especially in the  early days when you can always see it in the mirror.

In 10 weeks I lost just short of 10kg – don’t get me wrong it wasn’t easy but with the support, encouragement, food plan and exercise routines it is certainly the most effective weight loss and fitness plan I have ever been on.

Debbie age 36

“Anyone who knows me  knows I love to workout, but I was terrible at picking at food, eating all the wrong things. I have a major sweet tooth!

I joined the lean and learn program after seeing how successful three of my friends had been and its the best decision I’ve made. I can’t believe how amazing I feel! I have loads more energy, not to mention the weight and inches I’ve lost.

The support from Team Bradley is amazing and I loved being part of a group that was so positive and helpful. Anyone who wants to get healthier, fitter and lose weight this is the program you need to get on.” 

Charlie age 34

“Took up the challenge 10 weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised.

I can’t cook but the recipes were very simple to follow. I was never hungry and actually enjoyed the workouts.

I couldn’ t believe the end results. I would recommend this program to anyone who have been struggling especially with yo-yo dieting”.

Charlie age 43

“I joined Lean & Learn to clean up my diet and ‘tone up’. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the programme and found the ongoing support from Steve and Jodie, alongside the camaraderie of the group invaluable. 

I love the way that my body has transformed over the 10 weeks. I’ve learned so much about balancing my nutrition and lifestyle, and have much more energy and strength. I no longer crave sugar and wake up feeling ready to go! 

What’s delighted me more than anything is the way that my fitness has improved dramatically (despite having considered myself fit) and I’m achieving great results in so many areas of life! A real confidence building plan and a new way of life!

Thanks so much to both you and Jodie, and I look forward to continuing the journey with you.” 

Claire age 35

“I really enjoyed following the 10 week plan, it was never a chore!

The food plan was easy to follow, didn’t have heaps of prepping like another plan I’ve previously tried, plus the meals fitted in well with the family too.

The exercise videos Steve posted every week were great and I really enjoyed doing them.  Always different as well so you didn’t never got bored.

Although I didn’t have a lot to lose, I am really pleased with my results.  I see a real difference in my photos and I also feel leaner too! Nearly all my work clothes are too big now!

The support from Steve, Jodie and all the girls during the 10 weeks has been amazing and I look forward to continuing my progress in the support group.”

Lola age 41

“Having tried a wide range of diets without success this year I saw an advert for the 10 week lean and learn programme.  I decided to try it and I am over the moon with the results and keeping going on it now. I’ve lost over 10% body weight in that time and plenty more cm from my body.
It hasn’t been that hard I’ve had less calories and more exercise than normal but it’s been enjoyable and manageable just varying what you are eating has made a huge difference to me. I haven’t followed the meal plans strictly but rather I have adapted them to suit me and my family tastes but stayed within guidelines. This is what has made the difference no fad diets no strange foods just normal family meals.

Also having the support and advice of Steve & Jodie and the rest of the group at much needed times has kept me in check when I have strayed.
Highly recommend this programme to all x”

Wendy age 47

“Having tried everything from Scottish Slimmers to the Dukan Diet over the years, I can honestly say that this plan is the best I’ve done.  It’s the first time I’ve felt like this will be a lifetime change in the way I eat.

It showed me where I have been going wrong over the years as far as nutrition is concerned and that focusing on calories alone is not the whole story.

At the end of the 10 weeks, I didn’t feel like my “diet had finished”, I just looked forward to continuing with it to get to where I want to be.  It made me realise that having the odd night out does not mean I’ve ruined everything and how it’s definitely possible to “find the balance”!!

This subscription was given to me as a birthday present – the best present ever!!”

Wendy age 44

“Lean and Learn in 10 weeks has transformed my life.

I always thought weight was the most important thing but its not. Being healthy, fit and happy is what matters.

My mindset is now totally different and I know that this is a permanent lifestyle change. I couldn’t ever imagine going back to how I was before I did this.

Steve and his team are amazing and will help you achieve your goals.”

Vikki age 39

“The last 10 weeks has been an incredible journey for me. For years I have struggled with my weight and body shape wishing I could change it, trying various diets without any success, usually ending up heavier than I started.

I have been re-educated about food and have found it easy to plan and organise family meals, the workouts have been great and I can’t believe the changes in my weight and body shape.

I couldn’t do a press up or plank week 1 and I can now do both and am amazed at my progress. I have been trying new classes that I never had the courage to do before. I am now looking at the future believing anything is possible. Thank you.

All the videos, messages, information and support has been key in keeping me motivated, working hard and I’m so excited for achieving my next set of goals in the graduate group.”

Tracey age 35

“Joining the Lean and Learn program has been one of the best things I’ve done.

The support and education is brilliant. The change in mindset has been one of the biggest changes, alongside the huge change in my body shape!

I’ve went from doing no exercise to actually missing exercise if I don’t fit in at least 3 workouts a week. Plus I’ve also started running… something I NEVER thought I’d see!

Go on folks, give it a go! If I can, anyone can!”

Nicola age 42

“I absolutely love the lean & learn 10 week programme and definitely recommend it!  It is convenient, family friendly, and easy to follow.

The recipes are “real food”, quick and tasty, the support videos are always motivational and the exercise videos cater for all abilities and busy lifestyles.

Steve, Graeme & Jodie were always on hand to give advice and keep me motivated.

This is nothing like I’ve done before because as well as becoming healthier they are also teaching us about healthy eating, exercise and so much more.  For me It’s been the best thing I could have done, so thank you Steve & team”.

Kim age 47

“I thought about joining Lean and Learn for a couple of months before I took the plunge and I’m glad I did.

Over the years I’ve followed various diet programmes/clubs and can honestly say that this one has been the most educational and transformative.  I’ve learnt that some weeks I can’t be as focused and others and that’s okay as it’s about ‘finding the balance’.

I love being able to do the workouts at home and I can’t believe the difference in my shape and look forward to continuing in the graduate group to continue the good work.

Thanks to everyone at TFG and the support from all the lovely ladies on the same journey.”

Theresa age 46

“Over the last year and a half my weight gradually crept up & I realised that it is true you can’t out train a bad diet.

After seeing the fantastic results one of my friends had after joining the 10 week lean & learn it inspired me to join up at the start of the year. I had a rough idea what I needed to do but never fully understood how I could manage my macros.

10 week learn & learn has been a great experience as I now have the knowledge on how to find the balance.”

“Really chuffed with the results.  I had deleted my original photos so had no idea of the changes.  I was lying in bed last weekend having mummy/ daughter chats when she said. “That fitness thing you’ve been doing hasn’t really worked has it mum!!!”

It’s been a whole new learning curve – complete different mind set on the eating front and now looking at food in a completely different way. It’s made me better organised in that the food shop is done weekly now instead of winging it and having to shop two or three times a week.  This has made a huge difference to the food budget too and far less food waste than would have had before with impulse buying.

As someone who has once been in a gym in my life and hated it, this is ideal for me to do the exercise in my own home but still feel like I have someone there egging me on the give it my all.   Can’t wait to continue this journey.  Thank you steve Jodie and Graeme.”

Susan age 42

“I have loved the L & L programme and can’t quite believe the transformation in just 10 weeks.

I have used diets in the past which have been successful but the weight crept back on. What I loved most about this programme was the educational support and the accountability, realising where I had been going wrong with food choices and the difference the HIIT workouts make to body shape.

Really looking forward to continuing my journey in the graduate group and I would definitely recommend you and encourage anyone thinking about the programme to just go for it – amazing support from the other ladies in the group and a complete lifestyle change for the better!!  If I can do it, others most certainly can.”

Sarah age 36

“I can’t believe the difference in my pics.

The plan was so easy to follow with the same foods I would normally eat.  The exercises were both enjoyable and sometimes hard but I’m so glad I stuck with it.  The Fitness Guy has definitely changed my life for the better 😊.. Thanks TFG”

Sarah age 43

“I am truly delighted and shocked with my progress. I have really enjoyed the program.

I found it easy to follow. I hadn’t exercised in years (other than walking) but enjoyed the workouts (not 8😂).

The food was family friendly and loved the recipes. The program is really easy to fit round family life.”

Nicola age 31

“So glad I did this programme.  I was very apprehensive at first as I had done several ‘diets’ and never managed to sustain the results.

This was so different.  In 10 weeks I lost 12kg and 52cm but more importantly I now understand how to eat healthy and exercise has become second nature.

I have finally found the balance”

Lyndsay age 43

“The hard work and change in mind-set has definitely paid off. Before I embarked on the programme, I had looked from afar in awe at the amazing changes I saw in all the photos. It took  me around 8 months to get myself into gear and commit.

The first few weeks were challenging mentally as I felt that although I really wanted to make the change the old me was making the new me feel deprived.. deprived from what? Well the old habits that had got me into the downwards spiral that I was in. Even though from the outside people didn’t think I needed to change, I knew that if I didn’t take control and seize the moment, I would year on year keep adding the centimetres and half a kilo here and there. Slowly and surely it would have crept on – making the challenge even greater.

I have always tried to be fit and healthy and now I have the knowledge and know how from the programme. The support Group 1, that I have been part of has been absolutely amazing – what a great bunch of ladies and I will miss the banter and encouragement!

So what is next for me? Well, one thing for sure is that there is no going back. I am hooked  – the fitness bug is back and I am loving it. Without the Lean and Learn in 10 weeks programme, I would still be 5KG+ heavier and carrying 35cm + extra.

This is just the start for me – I have committed to myself to never look back and always ‘Find the Balance’

I cannot recommend the programme that Steve and Jodie have created enough. Seize your moment and commit – I’m not saying that it will be easy, but you can do it. Sometimes the thing that holds us back is the reflection in the mirror…”


No more excuses – find your own balance and when you do, you will love it! X ’’

Kristina age 35

“I decided to join lean & learn when my youngest daughter was 12 weeks old to try & get back to my pre pregnancy shape.

As a busy mum of 3 finding the time to do the 20 minute exercises was not a problem, I even looked forward to some time to myself! The meal plan is easy to follow, recipes very family friendly and there was a good mix of food.

The support in the group from not only Steve, Jodie and Graeme but also the other ladies was fantastic, we all kept each other motivated and I am really pleased with my results.

I have now joined the graduate group in order to keep myself motivated and would highly recommend lean and learn to anyone.”

Jill age 36

“After months of trying to build up the confidence to do this programme and being envious of all the amazing before and after photos, my husband gave me a voucher for it at Christmas and I havent looked back!


I now look at my very own before and after photos and I am so proud of what I have achieved! I still cant believe that I am now one of those women that I have so admired!


The programme has been invaluable to me in so many ways. As an emotional comfort eater it has helped to change my mindset towards food. It has helped me to make healthy choices alongside “finding the balance” of enjoying the things that I love! My overall enjoyment of life and motivation levels have vastly improved.


It is very easy to follow and has been designed to fit in with a busy mum schedule! The support group is so unique. It really helps to keep you on track as everyone has a common goal.


Dont get me wrong, this programme requires consistency, dedication and determination but if you have these you WILL get the results!”

Gillian age 46

“10 weeks ago I was tired most of the time, lacking energy, eating rubbish and craving sugar and now I’m not! I have so much more energy, no longer crave chocolate and back to my pre babies weight.

The recipes are brilliant and the info and support Steve, Jodie and Graeme provide has been instrumental in changing my lifestyle, now I have found the balance!”



Jessie age 56

“I cannot praise Steve and his team highly enough. The program is well thought out with the menus easy to follow and made up of foods the whole family eat, and I can honestly say that I never felt hungry.

I was already a regular exerciser but adding three of the HIIT workouts a week has made a huge difference. I am very pleased with my results and will continue in the support group.

What really sets this program apart from others is the support and constant feedback from Steve, Jodie, and Graham, and most importantly the rest of the group. Definitely the best £99 I have ever spent!”

Eilidh age 35

“After having 2 babies in 2 years, I found myself sliding down the slippery slope of bad eating habits and inconsistent exercise.  After seeing great results from a friend who had completed the 10 week lean and learn program I was keen to follow in her footsteps and sort my life out!

The meal plan was super easy to follow and within a few weeks I was gaining confidence in using MyFitnessPal to make the right choices within my calorie and macro allowance.
The highlight for me overall was the different mindset and appreciation I have for focusing more on cm loss rather than weight, although I certainly have lost a lot of weight too!

I cannot thank everyone at TFG enough and all the amazing ladies who have spurred me on when I needed motivation”

Claire age 41

” I signed up to the  lean and learn programme following a recommendation from a friend. I have been really impressed.

The biggest change for me is the regular exercise which is accessible and easy enough to fit round a hectic schedule.  The flexibility of the eating plan makes it so sustainable especially when using MyFitnessPal .  The online support group really helped keep me motivated and I am looking forward to being part of the graduate group.

Thank you to Steve and all the team.”

Simone age 45

“I was sceptical about this programme when people were telling me about it but then I thought why not give it a try – I’ve tried every other one!

Well….. I’m delighted to have been part of this and delighted with my results after 10 weeks.  I only lost 7lbs in weight but more in the way of cm’s and can’t believe the difference in my clothes (and confidence).

If like me you are unsure then please be assured you WON’T regret it. I would definitely recommend this programme as it is so informative and with the support of Steve, Jodie, Graeme and other like-minded people in your group will give you the kick up the backside that’s needed to get you on track to a healthier/leaner new you. It’s not like any other diet you will have followed, you will be eating plenty normal every day foods that even your family will enjoy.

If I can do it then you can too!!”

Michelle age 43

“Signing up to the 10 Week Lean and Learn programme with The Fitness Guy is one of the best things I have ever done for myself.  I have been educated about food, learned about macronutrients and seen exactly where I was going wrong before.  Because I am a runner I always though I could eat what I liked – definitely not the case!!  This programme has made a massive difference to my life – my body is so much stronger with the weekly workouts and I’m delighted with my weight and cms loss, I’m now in the graduate group and continuing my healthy, happy lifestyle.  Thanks so much Steve!!!”

Carrie age 35

“I am extremely happy with my results. I never in a million years thought I would of stuck to the plan, I can safely say im so glad I did as its the begining of a new chapter for me.

I have learnt so much about eating and I can now say exercise is fun and not just a chore. i have found the balance! So thank you to all at TFG!”

Anne age 53

“I found the 10 week programme a very positive journey and am so pleased with my results, I even enjoyed the workouts (was very apprehensive at the beginning).

The workouts are varied and never boring and are tailored for all levels of fitness, I feel stronger and healthier and am 38 cm smaller!  The support from Steve and the team is excellent”
