'TBB is a great initiative. Mental health is at an all-time low in the UK and we have had limited practical support or solutions until now. Speaking from personal experience, exercise can work wonders for a positive mindset and I really believe in and support the TBB method"
British Olympic Gold Medalist
"Wow, what a class! From the moment we began it was so engaging. A combination of mindfulness, motivation and a whole heap of fun. TBB Brings another meaning to working out. We can't wait for another class at Sweaty Betty Kings road. TBB sure know how to get your endorphins flowing!"
"As part of our company wellness day - our team kicked off the day with a TBB session. We were pushed to our cardiovascular limits and empowered by the positive mantras and meditation. It was a very bonding experience for all the participants - many of whom hadn't met each other before."
“Train Body Brain is a fast-track to workplace wellness. It de-stresses, energises and releases desk-bound bodies, whilst bringing calm, focus and positivity to the mind."
"We are very happy and proud to support Train Body Brain™ and all the work they do in education, community and the workplace"
"I used to hate traditional exercise classes! Last year I was introduced by a friend to Train Body Brain™.
The combination is just fantastic and a real time-saver. After each class, not only have I ticked off my daily exercise with the HIIT & strengthening sections, but I always come away feeling more positive, calm and focused for the rest of the day.
Highly recommend it!"
Actor and Radio Presenter
"Train Body Brain™ helps young people at some of the hardest times of their lives to be free from the pressures of social media and negative opinions and simply be happy! Train Body Brain™ operates in schools as a club and also in the community to enable young people to take control of their lives by engaging in mindful fitness. Definite recommendation!"

Teen Train Body Brain Ambassador
"As an adolescent psychotherapist I am seeing too many depressed young girls who are stressed, sleepless, anxious and unhappy. Train Body Brain, with its high intensity cardio work, mindful meditation, sense of fun and positive social interaction is the best thing that I can suggest for the overwhelmed teenagers of today."
Julie Lynn Evans
Leading Child Pscyhotherapist
"This class just ticks all the boxes. The mix of high intensity training, core and strength work, alongside mindful mantras and mediation is unique and something that our puplis have responded very well to. They leave the sessions energised and most importantly feeling good about themselves."
