Personal training

Whether it’s on a 1-2-1 or in a small group personal training is a great way to achieve your goals.

Whether you want to lose weight, train for an event or simply struggle with the commitment of a long term plan exercise programme, personal training could be the answer. Personal training helps you by providing structure, results and variety, having a regular appointment with your own personal trainer is great for maintaining your motivation and achieving your goal.

What to expect

Personal training starts with an initial consultation to assess your physical capabilities and current state of health. This will allow him/her to assess if you are safe to train, provide you with an opportunity to establish the training goals you want to accomplish and also set a benchmark against which to measure your progress.

A good personal training programme will be changed regularly, not only for variety, but also to allow for continued progression. The programme should be flexible to your needs - most trainers offer either one-to-one or small group sessions with partners or friends.

Having a regularly scheduled appointment is great for maintaining your motivation. Not only will you have someone else to report back to, you’ll also be taking part in a structured and realistic programme designed to deliver maximum results in the minimum of time.
