OUR friendly studio
I have more than 20 years experience in the fitness industry and have had the opportunity to work with some of the finest trainers and leaders in personal training from all around the world. I brought this expertise back to Chester in 2011 and was ranked a Top 10 Personal Trainer in 2012 by Mens Health. This led to me opening one of Chesters first Personal Training Studios dedicated solely to private and small group personal training – Creatively named KT Chaloner Personal Training and Pilates Studio. Unlike large box gyms, at my personal training and pilates studio in Chester you are guaranteed 100% focus to be on you without: on-lookers, sharing of equipment or distractions.
We specialise in private 121 and small group personal training to help you move, look and feel better whether this is through strength training, functional training or Pilates. We use a variety of proven and long standing methods of training to get you the results you both need and want. We view you as a whole and go beyond helping you achieve physical improvements. The mental wellbeing achieved through adding a personal trainer to your life can be transformational. The increase in self confidence and the ability to learn to love your body and what it can do for you can sometimes go beyond achieving that initial goal, which all too often is simply weight related.

PERSONAL Training solution for all
Private Personal Training is the most tailored approach to achieving your goal and it’s where we specialise. We have been successfully delivering personal training in Chester to more than 600 clients since 2011 and gained a great reputation through our clients success stories. But not everyone needs that 121 approach and many of our clients who’d achieved their goal wanted to stay with us for accountability, so in 2017 we introduced small group personal training in the form of KT’s Bootcamp. In keeping with our private and personal approach to training groups are kept to a maximum of 8 per session and we design a structured programme based on attending multiple sessions/week. We also introduced private and small group Pilates to provide a well-rounded approach to the mind and body when it comes to exercise and remain one of Chesters best Personal Training studios.

A success for everyone?
Personal Training is of course our business, but the success stories belong to you and they make us so happy. Whilst delivering results is what we do, when you achieve them it literally makes our hearts sings. We get to know our clients on such a personal level that when they succeed we really feel it with them. Read about some of our amazing clients and maybe you could become one.
I am Autistic and have sensory processing disorder which impacts my ability to cope with new places, people and environments. Having moved from full time dance into a teaching role I needed to maintain my fitness levels and health. I decided Pilates could be perfect for me and could also help to reduce my stress and anxiety levels.
Having trained in Dance from 3 years old, I graduated with a level 6 diploma in professional dance at the age of 18. Following my dance training I currently teach classical Ballet, Tap, Modern and Contemporary at a local Dance school, this has been my life without change for 16 years.
I was incredibly nervous and worried at the prospect of starting Pilates however Starting with KT was very easy, her personality, style of teaching and the atmosphere of her studio were just right.
It is very unusual for me to be able to start anything new without it having a major effect on my wellbeing , KT just has a really calming way of teaching, she listens and understands and ensures that I’m comfortable at all times, I train 4 times per week and have thoroughly enjoyed it from the first session.
My training in dance, teaching experience and my Autistic brain have given me the ability to pick up Pilates very quickly however, in any other environment I wouldn’t have come so far, or more likely I wouldn’t have walked through the studio door.
KT has inspired (or pushed me?) me to become a qualified Pilates instructor myself. Thanks KT
Meeting KT has been life changing for me.
Before joining Skinny Jeans School I was regularly rowing and using the cross trainer without achieving results. My aim was to tone up and lose a few pounds. I am over the moon that I have consistently lost and my total loss is over a stone. The classes have been fabulous for me and it has been so motivating to achieve weekly results. My eating habits have changed for the better but I still (over) drink and indulge!
I have since joined KT’s Bootcamp and love it. The structure of training three times a week at 6.30am is exactly what I need to maintain my weighI am confident that I will maintain my new weight and shape. I can’t speak highly enough of SJS.
Normal gyms never appealed much to me. Even the one at my school. I knew I wanted to get fitter but, as a bit of a beginner, I found the atmosphere of exercising in large groups a bit off-putting. It was also always difficult to find the time to fit in around my studies and A level revision timetable.
So I signed up with KT for a flexible programme of one to one sessions which went on throughout my last few months of sixth form at school and over the subsequent summer holidays.
It worked out really well. I could learn to exercise properly in a safe professional environment and quickly gained in strength, fitness and confidence. KT was brilliant at designing a personalised programme for me and kept my motivation high with frequent changes of routine and her infectious and unyielding enthusiasm. She was also a great source of help on the dietary front providing lots of tips, hints and support as to what to eat to underpin the exercise programme (not always the easiest thing to do when you’re a constantly ravenous teenager, stressed by A levels and with a profound love of pizza).
I’m at university now on the south coast and have joined the gym on campus (something I would probably not have done before) but am looking forward to catching up with KT in my holidays to get a top up of her expertise and enthusiasm.
I have been working with KT for just over a year. She helped me prepare my body for surgery in January, without her help, compassion and expertise I would not have recovered as quickly. After my surgery we started again on a 1:1 basis and re-built my strength, stamina and fitness. I have now lost the weight I put on during my recovery period and as well as doing the small group personal training sessions, I am rebuilding my core strength with KT using the pilates reformer and with Melody Dean in pilates classes. KT really pays attention to your individual needs and goals, I highly recommend her and her team
Granted I am biased as KT is my daughter, but when she returned to Chester from overseas I was a size 16-18, eating way too much sugar and not taking any exercise. I was miserable, hated shopping and had no body confidence anymore. Having always been fit and active, I was blaming my weight gain on my under-active thyroid and had basically given up.
After relentless tutting each time I tried to eat cake and deny it, I started to eat healthier. I also started to train with KT three times a week either in personal training or joining her classes. The weight dropped off, my muscles became defined and my confidence started to come back. I started to enjoy shopping and didn’t hate looking in the mirror anymore.
At 63 I am fitter than I was at 33. I attend KT’s Bootcamp and do my best to keep up, but regardless I love to lift weights and squat jump with a great group of people at a wonderful studio!
I came to KT after trying a couple of other personal trainers and have remained with KT for coming up to 4 years now. My knees have always been an issue and I am warding off replacements for as long as I can whilst maintaining a fun-filled life that includes lots of Skiing! Without KT’s knowledge I wouldn’t be able to maintain my fitness nor keep up my Skiing. She looks after my knee and her programmes keep me fit, sometimes to point of feeling like I am dying… but it’s what I asked for. She holds me back when needed and incorporates an amount of knee pre/rehabilitation into our sessions to keep the legs as strong as possible without irritating the joint further. She’s now a regular part of my Tuesday!
