How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

I use proven fitness and nutrition principles to ensure my clients get the results that they are after. With many years of experience I can effectively apply the right workout to each client and encourage them to make sound food choices that will augment their fitness programme.

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

Consistently taking steps each day to achieve your goals. Getting your workouts in every week, making good nutritional choices and getting plenty of sleep are probably the three best ways of transforming your body.

What do you love most about your job?

Helping people achieve their goals. I love to see people improve in whatever way they can. It may be that they get fitter or lose weight, or it could be they have the confidence to try something new that improves their lives.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I'm an entrepreneur at heart and the fitnes industry has afforded me the luxury of being in charge of my own schedule while enabling me to spend more time with my family.

Why should our clients choose you?

With over 25 years experience as a PT there is very little I haven't dealt with. I know what works and what doesn't, and that experience is invaluable when people want to get in shape and improve their lives.

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.
