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

Actually there is no secret. It’s basically understanding your body and engaging proper exercises on how to implimiment them safely. You always make sure that the exercises are achievable, realistic and obtainable. Beginners will need to scale the movements first in order to allow to build around the neuromuscular adaptation before building up strength, flexibilty and cardiovascular. Many people commonly get injured quickly during an exercise because they miss the importance of scaling a workout, and the lack of understanding and educating on how to create an effective workout routine . I’m a soul believer that if you are going to train hard, just train the right way. If you train smart, you will have no problems reaching your fitness goals. Finally, always be consistent with your workout plan, allow yourself to step out a “little” outside of your comfort zone, and you must “love” fitness. Fitness is a lifestyle. The body of your dream is no question but becoming a reality and a fact .

What do you love most about your job?

I’m very passionate with fitness and health. I love that I’m making a difference in my clients lives. When putting a smile and happy tears in their faces because I helped to make changes in their physical and health, that’s more the enough that I could ever asked for. I treat my clients like my family.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Actually my clients were the ones who inspired and believed in me. They saw solid expertise, potential and a valuable investment in me. If it wasn’t for them, I would of had a difficult time visioning myself not justonly a pro trainer, but as becoming a fitness entrepreneur. I’m not much of a high risk taker, but comfortable to work for someone. One day I was told by one of my client, if I want to own a successful fitness business, you need to take risk, must have talent, and have lots of passion in your profession. So I took that risk and also accepted the worst case scenario if all fails . I’m so glad that I took that risk. It was the best decision I ever made. It was a blessing of disguise.

Why should our clients choose you?

I believe that I am a very persistent coach with my clients and making sure they stick to their goals. Results is key. Creating a customized workout program that truly works for them and they are satisfied. I hold one of the highly respected and platinum standard fitness and health certification (NASM, EGOSCUE PES, Crossfit LV 1). I’ve been consistently involved in the fitness industry for almost 24 years. I believe in leading by example. I love challenges and I’m always constantly learning. I truly believe that the more I learn , i continually become even better as a Fitness Specialist, and I love to share that knowledge with others. Lastly, it’s very important to create a fitness programs that is fun and challenging, while gaining positive results.

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.
