To help you decide if 1-2-1 wellness coaching is what you need, I first offer a free 40-minute discovery session during which we will:
The session provides you with the opportunity to discuss your specific situation and ask any questions and together we can work out the best next steps for you to take.
Before we meet for the consultation session I will provide a pre-activity questionnaire so that I can identify any issues which may require more specialist help prior to starting a block of training.
Do I need to be a gym member to benefit from personal training?
No, all you need is yourself and a space big enough to stretch out in. I bring all the kit required to your sessions. If you don’t have any weights for additional workouts, I provide body weight exercises, which can be just as effective.
I’m not sure about weight/resistance training, won’t it make me look bulky?
To get ‘bulky’ requires a lot of effort and dedication to training and diet. Weight (or resistance) training is essential for everyone to maintain lean muscle as we age and as well as to help maintain healthy bones. Improving muscle quality and increasing muscle quantity will also increase your metabolism, meaning you burn more calories at rest which aids weight loss if that is your goal.
I have a few medical issues; will they stop me?
Most people will benefit from starting an exercise program and sessions can be adapted to suit each individual so we can usually work around any issues to provide a safe and effective program. Everyone completes a pre-exercise health questionnaire so if required I can refer you to a medical specialist before you start.
