Personal Training

All personal training sessions are approximately 50 to 60 minutes.  I can accomodate up to 4 people in a session (special lower tariffs apply to all extra partisipants). This makes is ideal for partner training or training for a small group of friends or family.  Cooler water and a towel is provided free of charge, so all you have to do is get into your training clothes and pitch.  Shower facilities are also available and if you prefer your own music, just bring your Ipod and we plug it into the music system.  And for all the mothers out there, since it’s only you and me in the gym, bring the little one with (just keep in mind it is a gym environment and you would be responsible for his/her safety and looking after him/her).

MOTIVATION AND MONITORING

A personal trainer can be an effective way to get motivated about sticking to an exercise schedule. As well as devising your workout schedule, your personal fitness trainer will monitor your progress and let you know how you are advancing toward your fitness goals. If you are prone to making excuses not to exercise, the presence and monitoring of a personal trainer may make it more difficult to avoid exercising on a routine basis.

TRAINING

Personal fitness trainers can help educate you about how to exercise efficiently and what activities and intensity levels are appropriate for your age and ability. A trainer will also discuss your medical history and present health condition. She can monitor your execution of these exercises to make sure you’re performing them effectively. Your personal trainer can also advise you about appropriate sporting equipment choices such as the best type of training shoes for your body type and exercise style.

INDIVIDUAL TAILORING

Your personal trainer will create an exercise plan which is specific to your personal medical history and heath goals. He can make sure you don’t attempt any common exercises or exercise forms which are inappropriate or dangerous for you — and adapt exercises and workouts to accommodate an existing injury or disability. Personal trainers can play an important part in recovery and rehabilitation. According to a report in the October 2009 issue of “Neurological Research,” a group of individuals recovering from strokes benefitted from the help of personal fitness trainers.

PHYSICAL SAFETY

If you are new to regular exercise, or if you have a health condition which may be exacerbated by exercise, the presence of a personal trainer can help ensure your personal safety while you’re working out. If you are significantly obese, starting an exercise program intended for weight loss may be done most safely with the presence or supervision of a personal trainer, according to ABC News. Also, strenuous exercise may carry a risk of placing your heart under strain — if you experience problems while working out, for example, your personal trainer can call for medical help.
