My name is Cordell Wilson and I help people lose weight, feel comfortable with their bodies and live A happy normal life with the body they’ve always dreamt of.
It’s that simple.
I am a weight loss specialist personal trainer in Cardiff and Newport, South Wales. I specialize in helping the everyday people of Cardiff and Newport lose weight, become strong, healthy and confident with their bodies through health and fitness .
Why do I do this? because I was once one of those people.
At the age of 17 I badly broke my leg and it left me in a wheel chair for nearly a year. This lead to my weight rocketing up to 17 stone ( picture below). My diet was terrible, my energy level were rock bottom and my confidence was completely gone. When coming out of cast ,walking again and losing over 3 stone I knew I wanted to help people who felt like I did and help them regain their confidence and happiness.
After losing the weight I studied Sports coaching science at the University of Wales, Cardiff, and worked through university as an fitness instructor. Throughout university I was heavily involved in coaching local communities and sports teams different sports as I knew I always wanted to be in a profession were I was helping other better themselves.
After 3 years of university I felt that tactical coaching of a sport wasn’t quite where I wanted to be, so I moved all my focus the the physical sides of things. Improving a persons physical attributes can literally change their life, can improve their health, fitness, sports performance and more.
I had been working in gyms for over 4 years and this then fueled the fire for me to become a personal trainer and to help more people with their health and fitness goals. Hence ‘Cordell Wilson personal training’ was born.
As you can see, everything I have done revolves around getting the absolute most out of an individual, whether that be sports player or a client wanting to lose weight. Through one on one personal training, group training and partner personal training I have help 100’s of people achieve amazing weight loss results, And you could to with my support and guidance.
They’ve said about Cordell’s work
20lbs lost in 16 weeks.
I started to train with Cordell but due to illness had to have surgery and rest for 6-8 weeks. During this period I continued to listen to his nutritional advice and my husband went on to train with him. My husband lost 2 stone in weight and has kept this weight off now for 6 months.
As soon as I was well enough I returned to training and I too have lost 1 stone in weight and feel fitter and healthier than I have in years. Healthy lifestyle choices are now normal habits and I don’t feel like I’ve been on a “diet”…I hate that word, I immediately feel deprived! Nothing is off the menu.
I have always enjoyed my PT sessions as they are always varied but tailored to my targets. If you are willing to listen to sound advice and work to your capabilities you will receive fantastic results having Cordell as your PT. He’s always there for advice when needed and l leave the gym smiling every time.
30 lbs lost!!!
I have been working with Cordell since February. I was stuck in a rut, feeling out of shape and as a busy working mum was really struggling to find the time to look after my own health and fitness. Cordell is always really professional and supportive and even though he often pushes me to my limit during our PT sessions, I love it!! I am now lifting weights I never thought I could and my fitness has improved enormously thanks to his motivation. He has helped me stay focused with my nutrition and his enthusiasm is brilliant, he always has a smile on his face. Would highly recommend, it’s just what I needed!
33lbs lost in 12 weeks.
Since June I have lost a total of 33lbs to date thanks to Cordells motivation encouragement and coaching with laughs along the way too!! I highly recommend personal training as this the first time I have ever achieved this much success in any gym. We have worked as a team throughout the whole process and addressed any issues along the way in a positive manner in order to reach my goals. It’s been a long journey however one I am thoroughly enjoying and continuing to see improvements every week. My sincere thanks to Cordell for his support now and also over the last three months. Cheers it’s been well worth it.
34lbs lost in 12 weeks.
Eternally grateful to Cordell for everything he’s taught me over the past month; I’m now more confident in the gym and loving using weights! Getting the results I want and feeling much happier. I lost over 30lbs in 3 months and managed to keep it off unlike diets in the past which I hated life whilst on. Would recommend to anyone looking for a Cardiff personal trainer who cares about his clients and will help coach you to make consistent life changes. Thank you so much!!
I’ve been training with Cordell coming up to a year and I have loved every minute of it, since my first session I was hooked even when he makes me do cardio which I can’t stand! My strength has increased massively, on our first deadlift session I could only just about lift the bar now I can deadlift nearly 80kg. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to get fit, stronger and learn how to eat healthy, he checks in with u regularly and is always on hand if u have a question. It’s our 1 year anniversary next months so I’m gonna bake us a huge massive cake and eat it on the treadmill, he’s simply the best!!
35lbs lost in 12 weeks.
Summary of today’s PT session. Cordell – 100kgs deadlift, 8 reps, 3 sets. Joe – 8 reps? can’t do it. Done. Cordell – assisted pull ups & lat pull downs. Joe – can’t do them. Done. Cordell – circuit to finish session & burn that fat involving battle ropes, squatting with dumbells & throw/catch medicine ball, Joe – can’t throw or catch, I have no coordination. Done. After completing all of the above as recommended by Cordell it’s a good job he doesn’t listen to my crap! It’s hard to believe in yourself when you’ve been out of shape forever but if there’s anyone that can help you, it’s him. Forget New Years resolutions, just do it now and drop him a message. Literally changing my life. And who knew I could catch. Ha!!
