Personal trainers are exactly that – personal. They'll understand what you're looking to achieve, and work one-on-one with you until you reach your fitness goal. You’ll benefit from a PT who is passionate about health and fitness. Not only that, their efforts to help you fulfil your potential can boost your self-esteem.

Getting the most out of your workout

There’s definitely a science to getting the most out of your workout. This is why personal trainers and fitness instructors will often have an impressive array of qualifications. They understand the body and how it works. It’s not about how much weight you can lift – posture, breathing, flexibility and movement are key to a successful workout. You don’t want to be wasting the time you spend at the gym by not working out properly. Personal trainers in Birmingham will also know exactly how hard to push you, so you avoid any injuries.

The right fuel for your workout

There’s a reason that bodybuilders and top athletes need an enormous amount of calories each day. If you’re looking to start exercising, getting your nutrition right is vital. We all know the importance of balance when it comes to what we eat. But, a personal trainer near you can devise a meal plan with all the right carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. They may also recommend supplements where necessary. This balance can vary based on your body type and fitness goals.

Help setting the right fitness goals

It’s a running joke (no pun intended) that gym memberships surge around the New Year and then steadily decline. The journey towards your ideal weight or body takes time. A personal trainer will ensure you set realistic expectations and will keep you motivated throughout. Many people feel self-conscious about exercising, especially at the gym. A PT will not only put you at ease, it’s their job to ensure you stay focused.

How much does a personal trainer cost in Birmingham?

Generally speaking, personal training averages between £30-£60 per session, but this can change depending on different factors.

If you’re ready to transform your fitness with a personal trainer but need to make sure the cost is within your budget, read our handy personal training price guide to find out just how much your specialist instructor will charge based on the type of training, their experience, and where you live.

What inspired you to be a personal trainer?

They say that if you pick a job that you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. I’d always found exercise great for my physical and mental wellbeing, so it always seemed ideal for me. Once I started my first few personal trainer courses, I realised that a career in fitness was worth pursuing.

What’s your favourite memory of work?

Even though it’s my job to motivate people, I never fail to be inspired by how far some of my clients have come. One of my earliest clients had been inactive for a number of years. We made real progress through a varied training programme that included weights, cardio and a meal plan. Last year they did their first marathon and I couldn’t have been more proud. Seeing them cross that finish line has to be up there as one of my favourite memories.

Are you qualified to offer nutritional/lifestyle advice?

To be honest, any personal trainer worth their salt should be. I have an HFE Level 3 Qualification in Nutrition and Weight Management. I’m also currently studying for my Level 4 to become an Obesity and Diabetes Specialist. There’s a lot that goes into health and fitness, it’s not just about lifting weights. To get the best results, your personal trainer should be looking at everything from diet and hydration to your sleeping habits. Fitness is a lifestyle, one that anyone can embrace with a few changes.

What’s it like training with you?

We both have to have clear fitness goals. Some clients want to reduce their body fat percentage. Others want to gain lean muscle mass, or really tighten up their physique. I’m very conscious that not everyone is active. I tailor my fitness programmes around the goals and each person’s individual abilities. I’m also a big believer in variety. We might be concentrating on a HIIT workout one day. On another day we may spend a lot of time in the squat rack!

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.
