Personal training is as individual as you are! After an initial consultation your fitness program will be designed once we identify what motivates you, your likes, dislikes and ultimately what you are looking to achieve.
I will combine different methods and styles of training to suit. This may be mostly using weights with a focus on both strength and conditioning, whilst teaching you different techniques to get the most out your sessions with me and so that are confident to the replicate this on your own too.
Alternatively we may be more focused on high intensity training with a combination of heavier and lighter weights, body weight exercises, plyometrics and intervals, all dependant on what your goals are.
My client sessions are known to be quite fast past paced and I am a keen believer that the key to achieving results (or not) is the time and intensity your muscles/body are under tension/challenge. I want you to get the most out of the time spent with me to achieve maximum results. At the same time I want you to feel comfortable with the level we are working at and, most importantly, enjoy our sessions and reap all the rewards they will bring.
80% of your body transformation and fitness results is dependant on nutritional requirements – therefore, the first factor we will need to consider in order for you to reach your goals is how to adjust your diet accordingly. Initially this will include a food diary analysis, body stat measurements, advice on carbohydrates, proteins and fats and the effects they have on your body – helping you to understand how nutrient timing plays an important roll. Ways to increase the metabolism and providing you with a detailed food plan for you to follow. As we progress and monitor your results closely we make adjustments where necessary to make sure you continue to see maximum results. Every person is different so the design of your plan and ongoing adjustments is personally designed just for you.
This can often be as much of an inner job as it is out to create total transformation and can end up going far deeper than applied health and fitness techniques.
Often we are unaware of self sabotaging behaviours and wondering why we never quite follow through with a plan we put in place to achieve our goals.
Logically we know that to follow a plan we will achieve a result. But how many times have you started to apply something positive and life seemed to get in the way, an external force out of your control and wanted you to mess up?
For sure I know its happened to me over and over! When I speak with 95% of my clients I can guarantee you they are saying the same thing, interesting huh?
This has fascinated me for a long time and lead me to look deeper to what is really happening here.
For now I will spare you the details but simply put we don’t like change and unconsciously we are just trying to keep ourselves safe. When we try and adopt a new behaviour our subconscious can go into fear and bring up all the reasons why we shouldn’t be doing this – even if it’s completely to positively benefit our lives. Think of the saying ‘better the devil you know’!
Our mind and body like to stay in homeostasis and avoid scary changeable situations.
Therefore we need to find ways to marry the conscious and the unconscious, pull out whats blocking us and chuck it in the bin. Only then we can start to see amazing changes in our lives.
We will find ways to create a new and positive mind set and incorporate regular daily practices to make sure you don’t keep getting stuck in these old sabotaging thoughts and behaviours. We will agree on some actions you can do daily to keep you moving towards your goals whilst offering you tools and techniques to cope if and when those seemingly external forces pop back up!
By following this consistently you will be able to completely reshape your health, body and life. Whilst being in total control of the decisions you make in each moment.
