What are your main goals?
I work with many clients all who have very different individual goals, which may include:
- Becoming fitter and healthier in general
- Drop a dress size
- Becoming stronger
- Gain muscle or reduce body fat
- Improve or learn technique
- Improve quality of life
- Being able to do something you have never been able to do before
There are many reasons to have a personal trainer, if you’d like to discuss how we could work together to reach your goals, get in touch.
Why have Personal Training?
Personal training is all about YOU. The training plan is designed for YOU, based around YOUR goals, what YOU want to achieve. It means you can progress quicker because you are pushed when you might otherwise not put the effort in, and have on the spot coaching to make sure you are doing everything correctly. If something doesn’t work for you, we can correct it there and then and find something that does.
Who is this suitable for?
Can I train with a friend?
Yes. It works best if you have similar goals and abilities, and is great for motivation.
Where are the sessions held?
I train out of Better Gym Portsmouth, which is located at The Pompey Centre Unit 6, Dickinson Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO4 8SH.
You do not need to be a member for me to train you here.
How long does a session last?
Usually an hour, although it depends on the needs of the individual.
What do I need to bring / wear?
Wear something that is easy to move in, sports specific kit is ideal as it is much more comfortable and absorbs sweat. Foot wear depends on what you are doing, generally, trainers are great for everything, although for weightlifting, flat soled shoes are better for stability. Bring something to drink water out of, and maybe a sweat towel.
The most important thing is a positive attitude and open mind.
I have health issues / injuries/ mental health concerns, will this be understood?
Most definitely yes. I understand!
I have a very thorough understanding of the human body and mind, you will be very much cared for, exercises are adapted to suit your needs, not to harm you. You may even find that certain aspects of your life improve or find relief.
Exercise is not only good for the body, but great for the soul. The mental health benefits of exercise are incredible, so I believe that it is important to try and find a way, regardless of the obstacle that is currently in the way. Anything that is beyond my scope to deal with, I will always seek help, because your well being is important.
Do you help with nutrition?
Yes. I believe in behaviour based goals and actions.
This means that I will guide you in the right direction so that you make achievable changes to your diet that result in long term change. Getting you to follow a set plan is not a sustainable solution. Teaching and coaching you to make better decisions will get you better results in the long run, there is no quick fix to dieting, improving your mindset and approach will improve your health.
Can you train me online or write me a programme?
Yes I can. There are several options here.
I can meet you in person to discuss your goals, where you are, what your limitations are, what you need to work on. It is helpful if I can see you move. Then on the basis of this I can write you a programme.
The other option, if we cannot meet in person, is for you to send me videos so that I can see where you are.
During the course of the programme you can come to me with any questions or concerns, if you need anything adapted, due to change of circumstances or injury, then this can be changed. Submitting videos can enable me to correct your technique and see where any weaknesses may be present.
However, you must be self motivated.
