EXERCISE

I SPECIALISE IN

WEIGHT LOSS

THE WHY

Maintaining a healthy weight significantly decreases the risks of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and osteoarthritis as well as other associated diseases. Mental well being can also be affected when we are not happy with our physical appearance. We will help you lose weight in a controlled manner meaning you are more likely to keep the weight off.

DISCOVER HOW

The most common reason for commencing Personal Training is the need or want to lose weight, it is important therefore that your journey will not only help you to understand the benefit of losing fat and gaining muscle but to be able to also understand how to maintain the weight that you have reached and a new healthier lifestyle!

As well as goal setting we will spend time gaining an understanding some basic training principles such as FIIT ( Frequency, Intensity, Time & Type)  and also gain an understanding of Nutritional principles such as Macronutrients and what is required to create a calorie deficit.

CORE STRENGTH & FLEXABILITY

THE WHY

Whether it’s for injury prevention or increasing strength, there are no downsides to core exercises. Increasing flexibility throughout your body helps keep your muscles at their peak and prevents injuries.

DISCOVER HOW

A solid foundation for commencing any new exercise journey is to start with the foundations which means improving flexibility and mobility and core strength. 

During the initial consultation, a range of movement and postural assessment will be carried out to identify any areas that may have a poor range of moment; typically this will include range of movement for Hamstrings, Hip Flexors, Abductors, Adductors, Glutes, Quadriceps, Chest, back & shoulders as well as a dynamic squat test and postural observation. A basic core test will include holding the plank position to failure to identify weakness in the core, following this exercise prescription can include floor based exercises for abdominal muscles, glutes and back and progressing to more challenging core workout using the TRX, Bosu ball, Stability ball and weighted crunch exercises.

ENDURANCE TRAINING

THE WHY

The ability to exert yourself or remain active over time, withstand fatigue, stress or pain. Endurance training helps improve cardiovascular, respiratory and muscular endurance during aerobic or anaerobic exercise.

DISCOVER HOW

If you are undertaking an endurance event Personal Training is a great way for you to build up stamina and confidence to be able to complete the distance! 

Your journey will involve a variety of training runs including long slow duration, Interval training, Fartlek and speed training as well as Metabolic HIIT workouts designed specifically to improve lean muscle and develop both slow and fast twitch muscle fibres! 

Your training may take place inside the Gym or outside in fresh open air at a location of your choice! 

Endurance training is great for any sports involving running such as Football, Netball, Hockey etc as well as any obstacle assault challenges!

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

THE WHY

Undertaking Strength and Conditioning programmes will give balance to muscle differences, toughen up tendons and ligaments, tackle flexibility and reduce injuries.

DISCOVER HOW

Increasing lean muscle and/or improving hypertrophy (increase in muscle size)  is important for everyone in being able to function optimally with everyday working life, strong muscles also help to protect the skeletal system. Strength conditioning can improve sports performance, it can help you to run faster, it can help hit a ball harder and inevitably it will also help you to lift heavier loads such as the bench press and leg press! 

Strength conditioning also becomes more important particularly for women who have been through the Menopause, this is due to having less Oestrogen which in turn means that the body cannot absorb vitamin D and calcium as efficiently increasing the risk of Osteoporosis. Your strength conditioning journey will commence with carrying out 1 rep max testing ( 1 Upper body push, 1 Upper body pull and 1 leg press) to be able to see what the maximum load is that you can lift, we will then work with a percentage of your 1 rep max and use a variety of Fixed and Free resistance equipment to increase lean muscle and size.

PRE & POST NATAL

THE WHY

A healthy strong body and positive attitude will allow you cope with the physical and psychological challenges that may arise during your journey as a mum.

DISCOVER HOW

Exercise throughout Pregnancy offers many benefits to the mother to be and the growing foetus, however the  female body will undergo a tremendous amount of stress and change to accommodate the growing baby. 

The key areas that are affected include the Recti muscles, Pelvic floor muscles and back, it is therefore important that the exercise prescription throughout each Trimester will enable you to not only feel safe but also to help prevent injuries. 

Your plan will therefore follow a logical, structured plan taking you through each trimester.

INJURY & REHABILITATION MANAGEMENT

THE WHY

Sports Injury Rehabilitation is critical to help ensure you return to the activities you love as quickly and as safely as possible.

DISCOVER HOW

Specialised training can include a variety of specific training needs which can include Cardiac rehabilitation, Stroke rehabilitation, back injuries, Total/partial knee replacements or Total/partial Hip replacements. 

Exercise prescription for each of these specific areas will be adapted and modified accordingly to the stage of rehabilitation but also aim to progress the client forwards either by aiming to increase the range of movement, improve strength to the weakened muscles and also to improve mental wellbeing.
