To help you decide if 1-2-1 training is what you need, I first offer a 40-minute 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 the kit to your sessions and if you don’t have any of your own to do additional workouts with I can provide you with body weight exercises, which can be just as effective as training with weights.
I’m not sure about weight/resistance training, won’t it make me look bulky?
No, 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.
I have a few medical issues; will they stop me?
Everyone completes a pre-exercise health questionnaire so if required I can refer you to a medical specialist before you start.
