" Surgery one day, full blown menopause the next, all at the grand old age of 37! I had no idea what was about to hit me was like a bus! Anxiety, depression, weight gain, insomnia. Very low self worth, constantly tired. This lead to overeating, over thinking and dark thoughts. Several times I have got myself to a gym, however I never felt like a fitted in. I was the fat one, the lonely one. Lots of skinny Minnie's that looked at you like you have two heads. I battled this for 4 years. The Box Gym is the total opposite. I joined the 28 Day Challenge in November. I knew it was going to be hard. Menopausal, under active thyroid. Tired. But I did It! I loved It! My new found family! My journey (I hate that word) but it has been epic. Martin and Kelly have your back...they want you to suceed. I now have new gym buddies, a new body that is constantly changing. The scales don't shift in dramatic fashion, but by god, taking photos along the way are a huge boost. But more importantly, the old me is coming back. I laugh, I socialise, I'm positve. A new mindset. The future is bright. All because of The Box Gym Cornwall. I can't thank it enough. Get yourself to this gym. You won't regret it. Don't let the menopause win!!xxx."

Georgia P

" The Box Gym certainly pays off. 6 months in, and getting there...Thank you Kelly and Martin and all the gym family."

Amanda B

" Just did the first day of the Home X workout on the Box Gym App. Thought looking at it before hand should be ok, but those bodyweight squats are a killer. Over the years I have used a lot of fitness apps a lot more expensive. Can't believe what you get for the price."

Marianne A

" On Friday, I hit a 7 stone loss in 3 years. I don't normally post about this stuff but its been a hell of a journey so far!

Its been hard trying to juggle life, organise your priorities, maintain positivity in front of your kids, allow yourself days off and pick yourself back up again after them. I'm really grateful that The Box Gym Cornwall has given me a shove to keep going. Who said fear isn't a motivator LOL. I will never be skinny and I will always love food. I will always moan like hell about exercise, despite secretly quite liking it"

Lucy G

" I just want to say thank you to Martin and Kelly. Really blown away by week one. Three pound gone (only 3 days following the food plan), but most excited that I have lost 3 inches from my waist! I am still fat, but I can already see the beginning of tummy muscles."

Karen P


" AT LAST!! Finally found a fitness and diet App that actually WORKS!!!! Thanks guys."

Liam B

" I have been using The Box Gym fitness app for two months now and I am absolutely loving it. I have had a massive amount of trouble with an injury and have always struggled to find something that could help me keep fit, but not aggravate the pain from the injury. This App has changed my life. I'm stronger than I have ever been and finally feel that I am on the right road. Thank you Martin, a few months ago I did not think I would ever get back to some form of normality. This app has literally changed my life!!"

" Been using The Box Gym App and loving it!!! The workouts are fantastic, love them all, especially the 10 min HIIT classes. Its taking me a little time to get the nutrition right, but I am logging everything on the app. Looking forward to the inches dropping off!"

Chantelle D

" So, I sat back last year and realised I'm all too rapidly approaching 50. I had started to feel old and definitely felt unfit and sometimes struggled to do the things that previously I could do, without the aches and pains. I guess you don't realise how unfit you are until this happens. I knew I needed to do something about it. I haven't really done any specific exercise since my 20's. I thought I would go for a walk daily, but often found an excuse not to. Then, after talking to a friend of the same age who uses the gym regularly, I thought I would give it a go. I had nothing to lose and I haven't looked back since."

Maria P

" I can't believe how great I feel, I have so much more energy and confidence and I am amazed by the difference in my body shape in only 5 weeks of going to The Box Gym. Seeing the difference gives me the right mindset to carry on. I could not have done this without the fantastic support and advice from Martin and Kelly."

Emma B

" HaHaHa, I am so bad at having my picture taken! And what a gigantic chin at the start!!! Was the hardest, but BEST six weeks!!! Really enjoyed the super early morning sessions and wound have never of achieved this if it were not from Martin and Kelly's  support and of course, the amazing women I did it with."

Chloe C

" I joined The Box Gym in January to get my fitness motivation back, as over the previous year or so, I had lost motivation and started to put on weight quite quickly. Being a member I regained my motivation and started to see results happening quickly. Then we were hit with COVID-19 and unfortunately the gym had to close. I was determined this was not going to stop me, I had come too far to stop now. So I continued to stick to my calorie plan set by Martin and continued to exercise everyday at home as per the plan Martin had set for me. Although I couldn't go to the gym, I continued to push for my results. From January until now, I have lost 38lbs of body fat. I know I still have work to get where I want to be, but I know if I keep putting in the work and following the brilliant advice from Martin and Kelly, I will get where I want to be. I know times are hard at the minute, but if we all continue to push ourselves we can all gain our dreams."

Neil G

" WOW...What an AMAZING gym, well to be fair I don't see it as a gym, it really is more like a family gathering whenever you train, be it for me a very sweaty one!!! This is my story. I joined The Box Gym on the 28 Day Challenge. I was quite anxious at first, not knowing what to expect, but I needn't have worried at all, from the start to finish you are welcomed with open arms by Martin and Kelly, as well as the other members. Their knowledge is second to none from the minute you walk though the door you feel in great hands. You are weighed, measured and blood pressure was like being at the doctors!! I felt safe if I am honest. From that I was given my calories, a lot more than I had previously been eating. The fitness classes literally transformed my body before my UNDER 28 Days. I have lost 17.2lbs and have dropped a dress size. This gym is exactly as it says on the tin!! Looking forward to my journey with The Box Gym in the future. THIS PLACE REALLY IS THE PLACE TO GO IF YOU WANT RESULTS. Thank you Martin and Kelly."

Nicola H

" Kelly and Martin are AMAZING! So supportive and encouraging. Everyone I have met so far have been very friendly, its like a big family. I have just finished the 28 Day Challenge and lost 14.9lb. I would never have done this wIthout them. I have now joined as a full member to continue my journey."

Claire G

" I joined The Box Gym in January on a 28 Day Challenge, and although its been bloody hard work, I went out last night wearing a size 12 dress...something I only dreamed about not that long ago...but thanks to my Box Gym family, Martin and Kelly, I have almost achieved my goal. It is possible to achieve your goals!!!"

Penny M


" I have been a member of numerous gyms. Most have had a very unwelcoming clientele and staff. The Box Gym is a very friendly gym, which welcomes new members. You don't feel judged based on size or previous gym experience. I feel comfortable to come in by myself, ask questions about workouts or how to use certain machines. They offer classes as well as open gym whilst offering a fun atmosphere. The Box Gym has helped my confidence grow and continue to grow as well as getting my body to where I want it to be. Thanks."

Dean B

Charlotte P

" I just wanted to let you guys know that the keto diet on the Box Gym App is hands down, the best diet that I have ever done. I gained a huge amount of weight whilst being pregnant and just could not lose it afterwards, and especially the "mummy belly". I started using the Box Gym App home workouts along with the Apps keto diet one month ago. I'm down 7lbs and my belly is going!!! I am never hungry now, don't crave any carbs or junk food and sleep amazingly. Thank you so much."

I would 100% tell people to go for it and join, this place has changed my life and I can’t recommend it enough. With the help of Martin, who gives great nutritional advice, you will achieve your goals."

Lorna W

" Amazing, thoroughly enjoyed the 6 week challenge. Everyone should do it."

Dave L

"The Box Gym and Martin and Kelly are awesome. I have used a lot of gym’s, exercise classes, personal trainers in the past and can honestly say that not one of them has anything on you guy’s and what you offer! You are both inspirational and motivational and really care about helping everybody achieve their goals and more. You are always on hand to answer questions, however stupid and give sound, knowledgeable advice. Its impossible to be around you and not want to push for more. I am totally hooked. "
