Our Story

| we have a passion for health and fitness

Where it all began

After many years of competing and participating in various sports including athletics, rugby and triathlon, Matthew Sills decided to turn his passion for health and fitness into a full time career.

After gaining all the required accreditation including a degree in sports and exercise science from the University of Surrey, he set up Trojan Fitness in 2013.

The aim of the business was to provide up to date health and fitness advice, based on the latest scientific research. Today the aims of the business are very much the same, with the core of the business providing high quality personal training, designed to change people’s lives for the better.

Now with our very own boutique gym in Northwood that features a basement tailor-made for delivering great personal training sessions, Trojan Fitness is excited to set more people on their very own fitness journey.

With the rise of platforms such as You Tube and the influence of social media, deciphering fact from fiction has become harder than ever. Charismatic personalities claiming to be experts in health and fitness often have no qualifications in their field, but freely offer advice that is untrue and sometimes potentially dangerous. Advice given on these platforms is rarely doctored which has led to a barrage of conflicting information.

All staff at Trojan Fitness are qualified fitness professionals, so you can be sure you’re getting the correct advice. As well as owning the required accreditation, all members of the team have a passion for health and fitness, often putting their knowledge into practice.

What we do


Unlike many of the other personal training companies we will not try to sell you copious amounts of protein powder or force you to book 10 sessions per week in a bid to maximise profits. We understand that everyone’s situation is different, so we design tailored training plans that work for you. Our methods are based on the latest research so you can be sure that the advice we are providing is correct. Our fitness professionals will guide you through the training plan, helping you decipher the fact from the fiction when it comes to health and fitness. When you train with us your goal becomes our goal, and we will do everything we can to help you achieve it.


The ‘YoYo’


Many companies advertise their weight loss ‘get fit plans’ as the best and quickest way to get healthy, but most are just gimmicks conjured up to maximise profits. Although some products and services may help you get healthy many are not sustainable. This has led to a ‘Yo Yo’ culture where people go through phases of getting fit only to return back to their unhealthy habits a few months later. Often when people have lost weight through fad diets, they soon return back to their starting weight or become heavier. We believe in developing tailored training plans that work around your current lifestyle – plans that offer results but are also sustainable.


Only the Best


Since 2022, we have been operating out of our very own gym in Northwood, and we didn’t take any second measures when it came to choosing our equipment.

Through from beginners, to bodybuilders, having the right equipment on hand to help you on your fitness journey is vital, and that’s why we have filled our Northwood gym with everything from swiss bars to slam balls.

Our trainers are experts in this equipment, and will always be on hand to show you through all exercises, making sure you have the correct form and you’re always getting maximum effect out of your workouts.

It is this meticulous approach that makes Trojan Fitness who we are, and we don’t ever stop working with you to improve your physical health.
