Celebrate fitness… with 1-2-1 fitness training
An individually tailored training programme to keep you fighting fit, alert, responsive and most important of all… supporting you on your quest to become the happiest, healthiest version of yourself.
Is this you?
You joined a gym because you wanted to get fit, but after a while you stopped going because you find it difficult to keep motivated.
Now that the kids are older, you have some time on your hands and you really need to lose a bit of weight.
You signed up for a charity event such as Race for Life, Tough Mudder, or a trip to Kilimanjaro… and you need to get fit for it!
Sound familiar? If any of this resonates with you, I know I can help!
As human animals we are all the same in many ways, however, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity and general health, no two people respond the same to physical stress, emotional influences, exercise or even the food they eat. I need to get to know you to find out your wants and needs of course, but more importantly to discover who and what you really are. It’s important for me to understand what makes you tick, your dreams and aspirations, what your motivators are and what turns your stomach!
My ultimate purpose is to help you improve your health and prevent disease and disability, by implementing strategies and tactics designed to increase your physical activity, support a physically active lifestyle, reduce health risks and improve your quality of life.
I want exercise to be fun and rewarding for you, therefore the more I know about you, the better equipped I am to find the right form of exercise most likely to get the best results for you.
Together we will:
- talk about your wants and needs and set some goals
- assess your current fitness level and discover what exercise works best for you
- measure your results and your progress on an ongoing basis, and adapt your training (if necessary) to keep you on track.
I will provide you with the accountability, inspiration and motivation that you need, as well as practical friendly advice and a positive outlook. Everything you need to succeed!
Are you ready for change? Do you need someone to inspire and motivate you?
Let’s have a conversation…
Celebrate Fitness – your active training programme
It all starts with a conversation at home – or if you prefer, a relaxed walk in the park – to discuss what exactly you want to achieve; how soon you need to start and finish; who or what will help or hinder your efforts; and how much you are able to and are prepared to invest, in terms of your time, money and energy.
To help me understand your lifestyle habits and any potential health risks, there are some forms to fill in, but mostly, it’s a chat all about you, your likes, your dislikes, and your priorities.
I may suggest some easy dietary changes that you can make immediately, and I’ll show you two or three suitable exercises that you can do right away, on your own.
The results provide us with a snapshot of your current physical health and fitness levels. This ‘baseline’ measurement is a starting point used for future comparison.
Fitness assessments are conducted at regular intervals, so that we can monitor (and celebrate) your progress and ensure the effectiveness of your training – adjusting your programme where necessary to ensure that you are getting consistent positive results.
Programme for success
I’ll provide you with a detailed report: reiterating key points of our discussion regarding your lifestyle, commitments and goals; identifying any health and wellbeing issues or areas of concern; and my recommendations for strategies and interventions concerning your exercise requirements and any dietary considerations.
In addition I’ll give you an overview of your personal 12-week exercise programme, illustrating the progressions and milestones we’re working towards on the way to achieving your goals.
Cardiovascular exercises may include walking, nordic walking, jogging, running or cycling – no exercise machines required.
For strength and endurance you’ll be doing free-weights (standing or with the Swiss ball), abs exercises (on the mat or the Swiss ball), circuits, body weight exercises and a heap of plyometric exercises. We’ll even have a go at some High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) when you are ready!
It’s really not as daunting as you might think! Take a peek at some of my videos, where you’ll see some of my real clients in action.
Most of us would like to re-shape some part of our bodies a little, whether it’s tightening up bingo wings, shedding a muffin top or firming up man-boobs. Truth be told, exercise alone may not do it all, but some simple dietary changes might help. Don’t worry I won’t try to sell you any lotions, potions or pills, but some of our conversations during training may be focused on what changes could be made to what, how, and even when you eat (and drink).
- build physical strength and confidence in your body
- gain mental confidence, no longer hiding your gifts and talents
- experience the peace of mind that comes with a clean bill of health.
I will support you every step of the way. You’ll discover what a strong, capable, fabulous person you really are and before you know it, when you are having fun, you will soon exceed your own expectations and start planning new goals.
