Gavin Elson Personal Training

Hi, My name is Gavin Elson, and my aim is to help you achieve your health and fitness goals. I don't believe in 'quick fix' methods, so won't guarantee you will lose 14lbs in the first 2 weeks... rather I look to educate clients around everything involved with optimizing their health. From physical training to nutrition, to often forgotten things like sleep habits, breathing correctly, and the benefits of quiet time and nature. All of these factors can have an impact on your health and ultimately your physical appearance. My goal is to get clients to a place where they are happy with themselves, both physically and mentally, and confident in the knowledge that they can navigate exercise, lifestyle, and diet choices without it causing boredom or unhappiness. I offer 1-2-1 personal training sessions, as well as an online coaching option where I can guide you through your weekly workout programmes, tailor a nutrition plan to enable you to eat what you want whilst still moving towards your target, and help optimise your habits and daily routines, all without having to leave your home/or your current gym. The online coaching option gives an overall package, creating accountability with weekly check-ins, giving you a set routine for what you need to do in order to achieve your desired results, and offering advice on any matter, at any time, to help you through those tricky situations like eating out or boredom eating etc. Please call the mobile number provided or send me a message with a contact number if you would like more info or to book a session. I look forward to working with you!

How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

My approach to optimum fitness is using whichever type of training fits best with the client. If you want to lose weight but hate running, then we will look at other options so you will enjoy the time we spend together, whilst also achieving your goals. If you have an injury or can't do certain exercises, we will work around that and fit the workout to you as an individual!

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

In my opinion, the body of your dreams comes from creating the lifestyle which compliments that body. You need to think, act, and live like the person who would have this body. Creating lifestyle changes and implementing healthy habits wil make it much easier to work towards the body of your dreams!

Why should our clients choose you?

Everyone knows the basics of what they need to do for fitness, they generally know the basics of what they need to eat and not eat... what really makes the difference is having someone who can encourage and motivate you, as well as hold you accountable for your goals and targets. I have worked with a diverse range of people all over the world, coaching fitness as well as extreme sports, so have developed a strong sense for reading people, knowing how hard they need to be pushed, and what motivates them. I also study psychology and the power of habits, so I am able to help you create new positive habits, new patterns of thinking, and essentially a new way of being which will set you up to win! With the right mindset in place, motivation will be less important as you rely on habits to keep you on track.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Yes - I can either write a tailored program for you to follow, with regular check-ins designed for you to ask any questions and keep you accountable. Or I can offer a bespoke 1-2-1 PT session via Zoom so you can workout from the comfort of your own lounge or garden!

Personal Trainers FAQs

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.
