"Before any wonderful, long-lasting changes can take place in your life, you have to accept just that: this is your life. It's your responsibility. The buck stops with you. This might seem tough but it's also liberating." Sally Gunnell

Personal Trainer Cheltenham

Hello. My name is Ruth Cook and I am passionate about helping ordinary people achieve their fitness goals, whether they be maintaining sanity in a hectic life, weight loss, postural improvement or preparing to run your first marathon.

As a working mother of four I completely understand how difficult it is to fit in time to exercise, and I will commit to making our partnership work for you. Although some clients see me for just a few sessions many have stayed with me for years some seeing me monthly to several times each week. The way we work will be tailored to meet your individual needs.

GymWith over 20 years experience as a Personal Trainer I am also highly qualified from my initial training with the American Council of Sports Medicine through many other courses such as core stability to Functional Fitness to the Rehab Masterclass.


I work primarily at ‘Reset Fitness’ at the bottom of Bath Road in Cheltenham. ‘Reset’ is a boutique personal training gym specializing in 1-1 training, and is both friendly, well equipped with changing facilities and free parking. I also work as the Rehabilitation Specialist for Cheltenham College.
