How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

I work closely with clients to understand their individual needs and requirements. Everyone is unique and I believe a personal trainer should focus on the personal by customising training and nutrition plans specifically to each client. Talking through progress and working through feelings and attitudes to exercise and diet is as important as following the plans themselves.

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

Behaviour change. Nothing else works in the long term. I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques to help shift attitudes to exercise and nutrition so that you can build and keep the body of your dreams.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My inspiration to start my personal training business was a diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes in 2011. Exercise, healthy eating and managing stress were crucial components of managing my condition and helping me go on to achieve a life-time goal of running a sub-3 hour marathon at age 48. I believe exercise, nutrition and wellbeing are the keys for everyone to improve their health, increase their fitness and achieve their goals.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am highly-qualified (PhD, MSc, PgDip. BA (Hons), L5 Nutritionist, L4 Obesity and Diabetes Specialist, L3 Exercise Referral Specialist, L3 Personal trainer) personable and experienced. See my website for some recent unbiased client reviews. Book a consultation for £30 and judge for yourself.

What do you love most about your job?

I love helping people. My goal with each client is to teach them how to become their own personal trainer.

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.
