Start personal training

Learn about training benefits and more:

Whether you want to look good for your wedding or a holiday, or simply struggle with the commitment of a long term plan exercise programme, personal training could be the answer. Personal training helps by providing structure, results, variety and motivation. There are thousands of professionals available to meet a variety of budgets and fitness needs.

You'll start with an initial consultation to assess your current state of health and define your fitness goals - lose weight, improve posture or simply get fitter. This gives you an agreed starting point, and also 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 - most coaches offer either one-to-one coaching or 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. The emphasis should be making exercise fun, so that you have the motivation to not only meet, but exceed your goals. The variety of exercises is almost endless, from mountain biking to Pilates, yoga to Boxercise, and can be conducted at work, at home, or at a gym. A typical programme will generally combine Aerobic (CV), resistance (weights) & flexibility to give you the workout that suits you best. With this much flexibility combined with the benefits of exercise (listed below), you can't go wrong.

Benefits of exercise:
  • Increased sense of well being
  • Improve muscle tone
  • Reduced body fat and weight loss
  • Psychological benefits, including improved self-image and self-esteem.
