Why should I spend money on a personal trainer when I can do it by myself? Of course you can train alone. But we believe that our main purpose is to motivate you and develop a customised training program with you that corresponds to your requirements, problems and goals. We will mainly be your advisor. We can detect when your posture is not quite right or when you are putting too much pressure on the wrong muscles. Also we can recommend running paths or the right exercise.
The purpose of a personal trainer is to provide a specific program based on underpinning expert knowledge. Each client has an initial consultation discussing barriers, objectives and goals in preparation to beginning training.
It is our job to both advise and motivate you to maintain your full commitment to the program and to continually adapt and progress your programme to keep you interested and focused on achieving your goals.
I don’t respond well to barked orders, what is your approach? Our job is to motivate you and develop a customised training program that helps you meet your goals – and not to bark orders. We will be encouraging you all the way, whilst advising you on the correct exercise postures to ensure you’re putting pressure on the right muscles.
Some people respond to encouragement, whilst some like to pushed hard; it’s all about having an honest partnership where we have an open feedback loop so you’re happy with our sessions and how we motivate you – with the ultimate aim to help you achieve your goals.
Can I bring a friend or relative? Yes. We offer one-to-one training or group sessions. Whether it’s working out as a couple or bringing friends or a group, we have the package to suit you.
How often do I have to or can I train with you? That is entirely up to you and depends on the amount of time you have and how committed you are.
How long will it take to see the effects of training? The onset of training is approximately 3 weeks. This means that after 4 weeks training the effects of the first week will start to show. However, this is an approximation.
