I have been training with Jan now for just over 5 months with my primary aim being to lose weight and improve my fitness. The results have been fantastic. I have lost just over 5 stones and dropped 6 dress sizes! Not only have I lost weight I have gained so much knowledge with regards to exercise and the best types of exercises to achieve results. Jan has also provided me with endless hints and tips with regards to my diet and why he recommends the types of foods that he does, to give me a better understanding so I can make the right choices. Thanks to Jan I now enjoy exercise and look forward to training as he provides a friendly atmosphere to train in whilst always pushing and motivating you to achieve you’re maximum potential. Personal training, for me, has been one of the most positive changes I have made.
I first came to Jan out of curiosity to check my body composition (body fat percentage etc) and to seek some general advice. I’ve always eaten relatively healthily and trained hard but I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. Jan’s advice has enabled me to make small tweaks and changes in my diet that have really accelerated my results. I have only been working with Jan for just over a month and I feel I have made some of my best progress within this time. I would recommend Jan to anyone serious about getting results.
Grzegorz (1st place in NAC Bodybuilding Championships, Manchester 2015)
Jan was consistently helping me with preparation for a NAC Bodybuilding Championships in Manchester (as a qualifier to world championships) where I’ve earned a First Place in the UK! He was professionally measuring my body composition (inc. body fat) and helping me with diet, nutrition supplementation. He’s also helped me with posing. I would say Jan is one of best trainers I was working with.
Body composition is the amount of fat vs. lean muscle tissue in the human body. These are commonly expressed as a percentage of a person’s total weight. Body weight alone in not a clear indicator of good health because it does not distinguish how many pounds are from fat and how many are from lean body mass.
Body Composition and Nutritional Analysis session will comprise of determining your body fat vs lean mass, Body Fat % and your somatotype to help to understand your individual body type. You’ll also be asked to provide 5-7day nutritional diary for further analysis and you will receive comprehensive analysis and nutritional report.

WHAT IS IT SENSUAL BACHATA? Sensual bachata was created in Cádiz, Andalusia, Spain, by Korke Escalona and Judith Cordero.
Korke learned the basics of bachata in 1998; then he started developing his own dance style by understanding how the leader (traditionally a man) could lead the body of the follower (traditionally a woman) to interpret the music. Sensual bachata is an independent dance form with strict lead and follow principles. The dance is an interpretation of the music with mostly circular movements and body waves. When the music has stronger beats, however, the dance also uses isolations and dips.
ABOUT US: Main instructor: Jan Tabaka is a fitness trainer, acrobatics instructor and Thai yoga masseuse during the day and latin dancer at night 🙂 Jan, has founded Bristol Bachata school 5 years ago, having now 10years of bachata sensual dancing experience following masterclasses of Korke & Judith (creators of bachata sensual) and many other top teachers in the world. His passion for bachata music has lead him to create a very unique never done before Bristol Bachata project lately featured on BBC and now widely recognised as one of the major dancing spots in the UK.
