What’s training with you like?
Training with me is demanding but because we have fun during the sessions you won’t realise how hard you’re working. That’s one of the key reasons why I get such good results with my clients. I also tailor my sessions to your needs so no two clients will get the same training plan. You can expect to be pushed but everything we do is done for a reason. Any personal trainer can make you tired but it takes years of experience and education to be able to create sessions that have a safe and specific purpose that gets you closer to your overall training goal.
Do I have to be in shape before I start?
Absolutely not. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never stepped inside a gym before because I’ll guide you through a bespoke plan that addresses your specific needs. Whatever your fitness level, I’ll use my experience to give you a thorough assessment so that I can create the best training programme for you. I’ll make sure you’re pushed and challenged during our sessions but we’ll also always do exercises that are appropriate for your fitness level.
Will I get bulky if I lift weights?
This is a very common misconception. It is possible to get a lot bigger by lifting weights but you have to train in a very specific way and follow a certain diet. In short, the average person is not suddenly going to turn into The Hulk if they pick up a heavy weight. We also focus on making you stronger rather than bigger, because this has greater everyday benefits. When you are stronger you reduce your injury risk, delay the ageing process and are able to do useful things, such as carry heavy suitcases without worrying about putting your back out. If, however, gaining muscle is your main goal then we’ll create a workout programme and nutrition plan that will get you the results you want.
Can’t I just go for a run to keep fit?
Running will improve your cardiovascular health and endurance but it won’t provide a complete fitness benefit. If you want to minimise your injury risk, feel more confident and reduce your body fat levels then undertaking a progressive strength training programme is the most efficient route to your goal. Our programmes will also improve your joint mobility and stability as well as giving you a more athletic and toned physique – something that running on its own won’t do. You may not think of yourself as the typical gym goer but once you’ve experienced our approach it will become an important part of your fitness regime.
Am I too old to start weight training?
You are never too old to start weight training. In fact, as you get older it becomes even more important that you maintain strength if you want to delay the ageing process. There is no physiological reason why a healthy person in their 40s, 50s or 60s shouldn’t be strength training. The only major difference is that, as you get older, it’s wise to spend slightly longer on the warm-up and mobility part of your session and also take sufficient rest between workouts. We’ve created a special anti-ageing package that’s designed to make you fitter than you were when you were 20. Just contact us to find out how you can get involved.
How long will it be before I see results?
This depends on how hard you work and how much your goals are driven by aesthetics but it is likely that you will notice a difference with how you look within a month. You’ll also start to notice a difference to how you feel a lot quicker than that. You’ll feel more energised, you’ll sleep better and your concentration levels will improve. If you want to make a radical difference to your body shape in a short space of time, then take a look at our 12-week transformation package, which includes everything you need to make big changes in just three months.
