How much weight can I lose?

This is a question i am often asked…

personal-trainer-cape-town-south-africa

It all depends on a few factors..,normally a person can lose a healthy 2 to 4kg’s in a month,I am sure there are those out there that will tell you, and promise you much more…

(emphasis on healthy..)

It also depends on the following:

  1. If the training methods are correctly prescribed.
  2. Clean eating habits.
  3. Limited alcohol and sugar intake.
  4. There are no injuries that need to be taken into account.
  5. Whether the client has to first be strengthened before interval training can take place ,to get the weight off quicker.
  6. A positive CAN-DO-IT attitude.

Its very important to have a consultation to map the way forward with the personal trainer, that you have decided to work with.

I need to be very honest with you…,its not an overnight thing ,or quick fix ,you are looking at nothing less than 3 months to get weight off safely and effectively…,how much depends on you.., and the above factors…

personal-trainer-cape-town-south-africa

If you find that these issues are not a concern for you ,and you have the correct positive and mental attitude, as well as ,REALLY  want to get that weight off ,then it’s just a matter of connecting with the right personal trainer…

After that the results should start SHOWING!

Good Luck!

Meet the Trainer

Have you ever used a      personal trainer ?

Did you find that the “personal” aspect seemed to be lacking?

Did the workouts lack variety and seldom change?

Not sure that your program was not custom tailored to your fitness level and goals, and felt frustrated by a lack of progress…?

Then you’ve come to the right place.

With many years experience as a certified personal trainer, I’ve helped many people in Cape Town,Green point, as well as the whole of the Atlantic Seaboard to meet their goals, overcome limitations, and challenge themselves. I will set you up with a complete personal training program that’s easy to follow, fun, efficient and effective. I will help you get past plateaus, when you are stuck, and help you to  start making progress again.

DO YOU HATE EXERCISE?

You’ll find a personal training experience that is not only enjoyable and fun, but you’ll learn something in the process, which is very important!

No time to train?

(I’ve never met anyone in Cape Town who had too much free time!)

I will help you find ways to fit exercise into your busy lifestyle, with flexible scheduling.

Personal Training Motto and Mission

My mission as a personal trainer

To educate my clients about exercise, diet, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, while empowering them to make the most of their abilities: through knowledge, direction and encouragement.

EVER FELT LOST AND CONFUSED WHEN TRYING TO WORK OUT ON YOUR OWN, EVEN AFTER USING THE SERVICES OF A PERSONAL TRAINER?

Never again!!

You will understand every aspect of your fitness program. I encourage clients to take an active interest in accomplishing their goals, and I welcome their input and feedback throughout the entire training process.

COMMITMENT, AND INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION

I see each training relationship as a collaboration, working together to make things happen. What I look for in a client is commitment.

Are you ready to make some changes in your life?

I will provide the necessary tools to accomplish the end result, through progressively challenging and invigorating workouts. I believe in variety, constantly changing and evolving exercise routines to ensure continual progress and alleviate boredom.

“Let’s make it happen”

Stop wasting your time and money on ineffective “one-size-fits-all” personal training programs, and products! What works for your best friend, family member or co-worker may not work for you. It’s time you had your own exercise program customized to your unique needs, abilities, goals, lifestyle, and interests.

  • Want better health and quality of life?
  • Improve function and sports performance?
  • More energy and less stress?
  • Greater strength, endurance and flexibility?
  • Better balance and coordination?
  • A lean, toned body that will do the things you want it to do?
  • Or maybe you just want to see what you’re capable of accomplishing.

It’s all possible…

I train clients at the New Cape Quarter in Somerset road Green Point, which is close to all major hotels, the Waterfront, as well as the International convention centre.

Forget about those overcrowded gyms, you’ll be trained in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere that’s conducive to great workouts.

So what are you waiting for?

Give me a call, email me, or simply come have a coffee with me, if you want to know more about enlisting the service of a personal Trainer.

IN CONCLUSION 

I have a massive success rate on clients, who I have trained over the years, so i would suggest you give me a call, or email me, and get started as soon as possible..,who knows in a month from now, you could be in peak physical condition with a body to go with it….

Sciatica and back pain

[ss_screenshot width=’700′ site=http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2015/09/04/exercise-sciatica-back-pain.aspx-]

 

(Feel free to click the link,and read the article on Sciatica and back pain)

 

As a fitness professional,i have had quite a few people in Cape Town come through my personal training practice..,with 70% of those people having some form of lower back issue,it’s not all doom and gloom when we find out we have a back issue,there are certain exercises,that all can do to assist you in,totally alleviating the problem area or managing it…

During our lives we all suffer from back pain now and then….,depending if it’s an injury or from wear and tear or a sports injury…,if that is the case,I would suggest that you consult your physician,to make sure that it is nothing serious….,after that start working on a strengthening program with exercises that target your lower back and core,as well as work  on your flexibility to improve your range of movement,which will aid in pain relief…

Sciatic-Nerve-Pain-Treatment

 

The GOLDEN RULE is,look after your back..

  1. Keep your core strong
  2. Keep your back strong and flexible
  3. Maintain your posture/shoulders back,tighten up your tummy,and walk up straight.

What type of training are you looking for?

When it comes to assisting you to reach your training and exercise goals,whatever they may be,depending on the individual,training will be focused on a specific training type and program for that individual. My personal training clients fall into one of the items listed below:

 

Weight loss -For those of you that are in need of weight loss,training is structured in such a way that after 2 to 3 months,training results are obvious,with the correct personal training methods. 

Weight gain – There are those that struggle to put on weight,no matter how much exercise or weight training they do,once again with the correct foundation,eating habits,the possibilities are there..

Strength training – There are specific athletes who require specific strength training programs,that assist them to achieve certain actions at a quicker and stronger pace,there are certain exercises,that help to enhance that for them.

Training for pregnant ladies – We need to be very careful when exercising when pregnant,therefore it would be advisable,to seek out a fitness professional to assist,as there are certain exercises,that we do…,and don’t do when   pregnant…a training program,specifically for pregnancy is tailored to suit the individual. 

Fitness training – this personal training program falls into the same category as strength training,and the same rules apply,all the training methods are based on getting the individual to maximum fitness. 

Core and stabilization training – your core is foundation, when it comes to everything we do,so many neglect their core,and balance,this personal training program has a lot to do with balance and abdominal core work,which i work with my clients, most of the time,as it is quite important,in all facets of exercise. 

Toning and  shaping  – the ladies favorite program,but not to be scoffed at,you can still feel you have had a good workout…,here we work on toning and tightening up those specific areas on the ladies..  

Cardiovascular training – the same as the fitness program,mostly for my runners,who are looking at increasing there time’s on the road,we deal mainly with cardio…  

Sports specific training – all the athletes who need to have their program centered around a specific sport,a personal training program is structured for this purpose.

Muscle imbalancesduring the course of our lives,we have a tendency to favor certain muscle’s,which needs to be corrected,as this can be damaging to our wellbeing going forward..,a personal training program is designed to correct that,sometimes in consultation with a physiotherapist if need be.
