How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

I train individuals the way I would want to be trained. I take pride knowing I give my clients my FULL attention their entire time they spend with me. If I were investing my hard earned money in someone to get me into shape, I want that session to be all about ME. It takes more than having various certifications or "book smarts" to do this job effectively. It takes YEARS of experience working with varieties of individuals with different goals, body types, and physical limitations to really be an effective trainer. These are the things I feel strongly about that make a solid trainer.

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

Hardwork and discipline. Being willing to do whatever it takes to change your lifestyle around for a happier and healthier life.

What do you love most about your job?

What I like most about my job is the satisfaction of proving people wrong. Having someone who comes to me with a negative attitude, who's really down about themselveseeing them change their life around physically and mentally. I LOVE seeing before and after pictures of my clients. It makes me feel good inside knowing I'm responsible for getting someone off medication they've been prescribed on for years because of exercise! That's a pretty surreal feeling. I enjoy making people laugh or just being there so they have someone to vent to. So I guess there's many things I like about my job.

What inspired you to start your own business?

When I started working out, I did it because I needed to blow off some steam... I had anger issues as a kid and all I cared about was getting as big as I could so no one would pick on me at school. Well after years of working out hard and eating everything in sight, I grew. I was no longer a skinny kid that got pushed around. When I got the results I wanted my whole mindset changed though. I became more positive of a person. I knew that if I apply myself by putting more work in than the next person, I can accomplish anything. With these changes, I was being asked questions at gyms from individuals looking for advice. I started helping others and became better socializing with people than I ever have been. It was then that I knew I wanted to apply this as a career and strive to help others.

Why should our clients choose you?

I ALWAYS GIVE OUT A FREE COMPLIMENTARY TRAINING SESSION... If you're not sure that you'll like something... Why not try it out for FREE?! I understand people are intimidated by a gym atmosphere or nervous when working with a personal trainer for the first time. That's why I do this!

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.
