What is Personal Training?
If your car was playing up, you wouldn’t just open the bonnet and have a tinker yourself.
What about if your washing machine suddenly went on the fritz? There’s only so much you can pick up about the ins and outs of washing machine mastery from Google – at some stage, you’d have to call an expert.
It’s the same with personal training.
With the plethora of free information available, you’d think it would be easy to find out how to get fitter, stronger, and lose fat, but it just ain’t that simple, amigo.
For starters, just look at how much conflicting information there is…
Some people swear by cardio, while others don’t do any and look awesome
Listen to some guys and girls, and low-carb is the way to go diet-wise, but chat with someone else and they’ll do nothing but speak of the dangers of dropping your carbs. So what are you to do?
There’s the motivation issue too. When was the last time you told yourself you were absolutely, definitely, 100% committed to hitting the gym and changing your diet? If you’re like most people, you probably go through this every few months.
It’s not uncommon to really struggle both with the knowledge needed to change your body and your life, but also with the motivation, and that’s where personal training comes in.
I work with you personally to give you a training and diet plan that not only fits your lifestyle, goals and schedule, but also that you enjoy. I realise the stresses of modern life, work and family, and help you incorporate small, manageable changes into your daily routine to get you where you want to be.
There are a lot of myths and misconceptions surrounding personal training – mainly that it’s only for elite athletes and the filthy rich, but this certainly isn’t the case. I do work with CEOs and business owners, as well as those who play sport to a high level, but my client list also includes students, single parents and everyone in between. The only thing that matters at all is your desire to reach your goals.
Oh, and a sense of humour is preferable too. If you’re after someone to yell at you every workout and make you feel miserable and half-dead, that’s not me. If, however, you want someone to push you and get you where you want to be, but have a chat and a laugh with too, I’m definitely your guy.
