From the desk of:
Owner of Excel Health & Performance
Essex Personal Trainer
My name is Craig Maddocks and I’m a personal trainer, body transformation expert and owner of Excel Health & Performance. I’ve dedicated the last 12 years helping people transform the way they look and feel, and remain on the cutting-edge in the field of training, nutrition and performance.
I started Excel Health & Performance a few years ago because I saw a real difference in my health, strength and appearance when I focused on physical, mental and nutritional well-being.
I’m passionate about what I do and work with a group of expert trainers who match my passion for fitness and good health. We don’t just add names to the membership book. Every person who works at Excel Health & Performance cares about YOU achieving your fitness and weight loss goal!
Excel is more than a gym and offers much that the David Lloyds and Virgin’s don’t. I became ill in 2008 and after treatment really struggled physically and mentally to train and generally look after myself. Craig and his team have helped me in many ways where the medical profession couldn’t.
Craig with his Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Clinic – the test results were pretty shocking but following his treatment advice, I and those around me, have noticed a difference to my health and wellbeing. Steve with his EFT which really helped me get over the trauma of my illness and get some perspective and balance in my life again. Finally feeling well again I have just completed Craig’s ‘Exceleration Programme’ and have lost 2 stone in 12 weeks.
I have three PT sessions per week with Craig and Jemma who are both excellent – patient, knowledgeable and get the most out of me. I actually can’t wait to start it all again – I never thought I would ever say that!
I’d trained at various gyms before Excel and was never entirely happy with the short-sighted approach and closed-minded attitude to health and fitness of staff and members and, eventually, I always became disillusioned and unstuck. Excel’s holistic and inspiring approach to fitness and well-being has changed and re-invigorated my training and I have never been in better all-round shape and condition. Craig and the rest of the Excel team are informed, personable, supportive and fully committed to helping you achieve your best and I can’t champion and recommend them enough!

“From the first time I saw the facilities at Excel I became immediately excited. For me other gyms just don’t compare. Excel has fantastic equipment to help keep my workouts fun, interesting and deliver results! I have become much stronger since becoming a member and have benefited enormously from having the opportunity to vary my workouts and incorporate lots of equipment into my programmes, I was also introduced to Kettlebell training at Excel which I love. I would highly recommend Excel to everybody. ”
“Since joining Excel back in March 2009, I have lost 1.5 stone and still enjoy a full and varied diet. The support at Excel is impeccable, you feel thoroughly engaged and help is always on hand. The club is overall a great place to come.”
I did think I was reasonably fit and healthy, as I took regular exerciser 3-4 times a week and ate pretty well most of the time. That was until I completed Craig’s 10 week body transformation programme which not only dramatically changed the way I looked and felt, but has educated me on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle that works for me.I thought I could never loss the stubborn fat (muffin top and thunder thighs for me) but I did with the help of Craig and his programme. I can honestly say that I have never felt better, I have so much energy and I look and feel fantastic. I’m very proud of what I have achieved and accomplished over the last 10 weeks.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s very tough and you need to be committed, but it does get easier (honest) and the results speak for themselves. The only reason you won’t transform your body is because you decided not too and if I can do it with the help, knowledge and support from Craig anyone can.
Too often people come to me because they want to focus on one particular body “issue”. They have a ‘jelly belly’ that they want to tighten up. They have wide hips, a big bum, a muffin top or “bingo” wings.
Does that sound familiar?
At Excel Health & Performance we believe that no person is the same, therefore, no fitness program should be identical. We work with you to find a balance of exercise and nutrition that is best suited for your individual fitness level and goals.
Total Loss: 18 Ibs – 5 % Body Fat
“Having tried and failed to achieve the results I wanted with commercial gyms and fad diets, Craig Maddocks offered me the chance to take part in his body fat loss Exceleration programme! Thanks to Craig’s guidance on Nutrition and his fitness programmes I have managed to lose 18lbs, 5% bodyfat and 3 inches off my waistline, all in just ten weeks! Im feeling Stronger & fitter than ever. I would recommend this programme to anyone. “
I started working with Craig 4 years ago when I needed to lose weight and has serious issues with my upper and lower spine. I lost over 1 stone in weight and improved my core body strength to such an extent that I have been able to return to playing tennis which I previously had to abandon. He has also re-educated my eating habits so the weight has stayed off which gets much harder as you get older. In short if you are looking for an all round trainer who does more than just give you a workout programme, then I would definitely recommend Craig

“ My goals were to lose weight and improve my golf fitness at the same time. Exercising at home never really worked for me, so joining Excel was the perfect answer, the gym trainers gave me a balanced workout programme where I could see weekly improvements which gave me the motivation and desire to come on a regular basis. I am now down to the weight I want to be and my golf strength is showing in lowering scores. I have also lost 4 inches from my waist. Thanks.”
Since having personal training by Craig I have lost two stone and a lot of body fat something I would never have achieved going to a conventional gym. I find the method of training varies and lets you push yourself to achieve different goals. My body shape has changed and I have a lot more definition now.
After training at Excel for over a year with Craig my strength and conditioning has improved massively! My attitude towards eating and my diet has also improved which has helped me with my training so much. Although sessions are intense and hard I look forward to them. Excel is helping me achieve my goals and my journey with them has only just begun.

I Can’t believe in only 8 weeks I’ve lost 17 lbs. The program has been lifestyle changing. I now eat really healthy, but love everything I eat. I eat regularly so have no highs and lows or mood swings. I have become a gym addict and go not because i have to, but because it makes me feel good and I enjoy it! For the first time in as long as I can remember I feel good about myself and positive. I definitely have no intentions of slipping back to my old ways.
|Total Loss:||6 inches|
“The 8 week Boot Camp at Excel did the job. I enjoyed the classes, made new friends, stuck to the food list and I now fit back into my old jeans. It was also an education on the food front, and I shall continue to eat this way.”
“I have been training at Excel for over 12 months now with Craig Maddocks, over this time I have got stronger, fitter and more powerful. I have also learnt a lot about training, nutrition and how to eat correctly. Every session is intense and a challenge. I am 38 years old and feel fitter than I have ever done before its been an amazing journey with the team at excel.”
|Total Loss:||12 inches||3% body fat|
I have done many different diets In the past which I have lost weigh on, but have not necessarily felt any different in myself and the weight soon came back. Since training at Excel I have learnt how to change my lifestyle for the better and have a cleaner understanding on how my body functions and what I need to do to keep my weight at a level I am happy with.

“With every new program from Gemma I think, ‘Bloody hell this is hard!” But after just one year at Excel I am nearly 2 stone lighter and at 60 I have never felt fitter and healthier. A big thank you to all The Excel Team for your support especially Gemma for constantly pushing me. I wish I had found this place years ago – Thank You”
