How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

Everyone is different, and that's the beauty of working as a personal trainer! Every client is a fresh start and requires a new and varied approach. I sit down with my clients and make sure every session and every plan is tailored to their specific fitness and nutritional goals.

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

There's no secret. It requires hard work, dedication and hopefully lots of fun along the way!

What do you love most about your job?

Working with such a broad range of people from all walks of life. No two clients have the same goals and aspirations, and that makes the job such a unique and privileged experience for me. Helping people achieve their goals is a wonderful thing, whether it's weight loss, performance-focused or just feeling more confident in their own skin.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My journey in sports and fitness has spanned many years and has crossed various genres. I was a county swimmer and have been heavily involved in a number of other sports, including rugby, squash, basketball and running. But most of all, I started Oxley Fitness because I know what it's like to be unhappy in your body and stuck in a rut. I wanted to help others learn about their bodies, fitness, nutrition and endurance, but most of all make the right choices for themselves.

Why should our clients choose you?

My approach to training and nutrition will always follow a pragmatic, simple mindset. There are no shortcuts or one-size-fits-all ways of achieving our potential. That’s why I won’t be recommending any fad diets or jumping on the bandwagon of the latest fitness trends. I will tailor your exercise and nutrition programmes to fit you and your lifestyle, using evidence-based practices and research the whole way. Most importantly, I’ll do my best to make your fitness journey fun and achievable.

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.
