Personal Training - "One to One"
This is the area of personal fitness training where I carry out a large part of my work with clients both male and female. The first step is always a "one to one " meeting with a client to discuss personal goals and time-frames.
I then devise a programme to meet these goals and begin personal training with the client. Normally, a nutritional programme is also required together with some behavioural changes!
High levels of guidance and motivation are required in personal training and assistance is provided on a continuous basis. If you are new to the gym and exercise equipment I will select what is best for you and show you how to exercise correctly and safely so that you obtain the maximum benefit from your workouts. I have done a separate web page on the importance of exercise - click here if you would like to read.
Group Training or "Buddy Up" with a friend
Sometimes you may not wish to train alone but with a friend. Sometimes there is an advantage in 'buddying up' because it adds a bit of competition to your workout!! Nothing like seeing who trains hardest or achieves most from good exercise and diet.
The process is the same as 'one to one' personal training and you get exactly the same attention from me.
The advantage for you is that if you choose to do personal training together then, normally I can work out an hourly price that is less expensive for you both. Do feel free to dicuss this in more detail with me.
A proper fitness test before starting a training programme can establish a ‘benchmark’ and guide so then the correct individual fitness workout/programme can be put together. Further regular tests will show changes and other areas where assistance can be given such as diet and lifestyle.
Many tests have been created over the years and can be used to measure specific fitness factors. If you are about
to start a training programme it makes sense to have a fitness assessment and keep a record of your level of fitness when you start - you can also compare your current level of fitness with the norm for your age and sex - can be a bit of a shock!
Have regular assessments every few weeks to track improvements in your fitness - nothing like some real facts and figures for real motivation and to see how you are getting fitter.
PowerLifting and Strongman
Both Powerlifting and Strongman are becoming more and more popular with both males and females. Both complement work outs at the gym but add an extra dimension to training. If you have never felt the "buzz" and rush of adrenaline that competing can give you......!
I have put a section on both of these sports on a separate page so have a read and talk to me if you are interested in having a go. May be the best thing you have ever done click here
