How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

I help clients reach their goals by understanding what motivates them. Each client is different in their journey, some need reassurance and support while others just need a exercise plan to follow. I've spent over a decade working with clients from a broad variety of backgrounds, gender, ethnicity and age. No one plan fits all therefore the first session consists of a comprehensive assessment not only targeting the physical aspects but also the clients overall wellbeing.

We will work in a collaborative partnership in order to ensure my clients are successful in their journey.

What’s the secret to getting the body of your dreams?

There is no secret to getting the body of your dreams, no magic pill and no quick fix. As well as designing and personalising individualised exercise plans and nutrition plans to support their goals, I also look how external and internal factors affect their goals. In my opinion for anyone to achieve the 'body of their dreams' there needs to be set of stable behaviours. Areas that can negatively affect this are poor sleep, poor digestion, high stress level, high levels of fatigue, fear, lack of social support and lack of self-efficacy.

When I work with my clients I aim to address these areas so as to create the stable foundation to build upon otherwise the best exercise and nutrition plans will quickly be neglected if my clients do not have the correct mindset.

What do you love most about your job?

What I love most about my job is seeing the joy my clients feel when they achieve Self-efficacy, which is a persons belief in his or hers ability to conquer their gaol. This is a wonderful feeling as this can affect how they live their life and how they view their behaviours and then they make positive decisions for themselves.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I believe I have gained invaluable knowledge and experience of my career and my desire is to pass this onto my clients to help them achieve their goals.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a genuine and honest character with a strong academic and work background. I've been working in the industry for the last 10 years with a wide range of clients both males and females across the board be it sports specific for triathlons or teams sports or someone looking to loose weight, tone up or increase muscle mass.

I have an undergraduate and post graduate qualification related to health and fitness. I have further advanced my training and gained further qualifications to work with patients experiencing heart and lung conditions.

Because of my work hours I am only available from 5pm weekdays and anytime weekends.

It depends on your end goal. If you’re training for a marathon, you might work out nearly every day of the week. If you’re a low-level beginner, a minimum of three times a week is enough to make a noticeable impact. No matter what you’re working out for, everyone needs rest and recovery days. Without them, your muscles won’t be able to recuperate and grow strong, so remember to factor in some down-time, too!

Pretty much anywhere! The great thing about personal training is that it’s flexible - as long as you have the necessary equipment, you and your instructor can decide to have your sessions from the gym, your home, the park, or even your office if you want to!

Yes! First of all, they will chat with you about your goals, and discuss the best way to achieve them. They should also ask you to fill in a consent form to check that you don’t have any pre-existing health conditions that could impact your exercise. They’ll also carry out a health assessment to get a better idea of your current fitness level, tailoring your workout plan around that.

It's tricky to say, as personal training sessions vary significantly depending on what you want to achieve and the type of workout. Generally, one personal training session tends to last forty-five minutes to one hour. It will start with a gentle warm-up, followed by the nitty-gritty of the actual workout, with stretches to end the session. Remember, warming up and stretching is essential for injury prevention - it’s just as important as the main part of the workout!

A personal trainer needs to be clued up on all aspects of fitness, from the most effective exercise techniques to nutrition and human anatomy- that’s a lot of responsibility! You need to make sure your professional is suitably qualified for the job. After all, you shouldn’t cut corners when it comes to investing in your health. Make sure your trainer has the minimum qualifications required to practice. In the UK, this is the Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification.
