What is the Free Consultation, and how do I book?

This normally takes an hour, and is a completely free consultation that includes a health, dietary and lifestyle analysis.

It will give you the opportunity to talk very openly about your goals and objectives and we can obtain the information required to create a customised training programme for you to achieve them.

It helps to ascertain what exercises work best for you, and you’re most comfortable with.

Why should I spend money on a personal trainer when I can do it by myself?

Of course you can train alone.  But I believe that my main purpose is to motivate you and develop a customised training programme with you that corresponds to your requirements, problems and goals.

I 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.

Don’t just take my word for it – Read my Testimonials.

I’ve struggled with my weight and fitness for a long time, how will you make a difference?

The purpose of a personal trainer is to provide a specific programme based on underpinning expert knowledge.  Each client has an initial consultation discussing barriers, objectives and goals in preparation to beginning training.

The barriers to achieving your goals are just as important, so I can identify these and look at ways at overcoming them.

It is my job to both advise and motivate you to maintain your full commitment to the programme 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?

My job is to motivate you and develop a customised training programme that helps you meet your goals – and not to bark orders.I 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 I will 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 or friend?

Yes.  I offer one-to-one training or group sessions.  Whether it’s working out as a couple or bringing up to two friends 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.  Usually, I train with my clients at least two to three times a week.

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 – some people notice results sooner or later.
