How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

We listen to what they want! The key is understanding exactly what someone wants, we can then look at their current level of fitness and experience and then plot a plan that will meet their goals. It is a collaboration between the client and the trainer. We're not here to punish you with exercise, it is about learning a skill and understanding what you are doing and why you are doing it. We want you to be as involved in the process as we are, we want you to be comfortable with what you are doing and why. That way you won't fear the gym! We have been training for over 15 years and an extensive and varied knowledge base and we've helped hundreds of people achieve all sorts of things from losing weight, climbing a mountain, running an ultra marathon, recovering from back pain and even breaking world records!

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

Patience and an open mind! We are here to support you and provide you with the knowledge you need to succeed, all we ask is that we set realistic goals and for you to be honest with us about your expectations and how much effort you are willing to give. If we can do that then there is nothing to stop you.

What do you love most about your job?

Seeing people develop and progress, regardless of their goals. One of the owners Pete is a Physiotherapist as well as a trainer. He recently has been working with a lady with Cerebral Palsy, who originally came to us in a motorised wheelchair that she had had to use for years. In the last few months she has been walking by herself, completely unsupported. As you can imagine, it's a good feeling!

What inspired you to start your own business?

We wanted to integrate physiotherapy, rehabilitation and training into one business, so that we could take any person, regardless of injuries or medical conditions and provide them with training to improve their life. It's been hard work, but worth every second.

Why should our clients choose you?

Our training is based on scientific research and evidence, we are not ones for the latest gym craze if we're honest! Our approach is based on teaching you excellent technique and developing you towards your goals. If you have injuries or medical conditions then we have a team unlike any other that you will find in a gym that can not only provide exercise but fix any problems too. We also passionately believe in what we do, our staff is made up of Ultra Runners, Sports Scientists, Physiotherapists, Sports Therapists, Triathletes, Weightlifters and competing Body Builders - whatever we will make you do we do ourselves! We feel we have a lot to offer and we're confident that we can provide the right training for you - that's why we offer a free, no obligation, taster session to anyone so that you can come and chat to us and see what makes us different!

Personal Trainers FAQs

Expand all

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.

Absolutely! Online personal training has become increasingly popular as more people are looking to maintain their fitness during lockdowns and gyms closing. As long as you and your personal trainer have a strong internet connection and a device to stream on like a laptop, tablet or smartphone, there's no reason why your session can't be delivered remotely.
