Body transformation

A combination of resistance exercises, cardiovascular training and nutrition coaching will help you to achieve your weight loss and fat reduction goals. It’s not as hard as you think and will leave you feeling great!

Strength training

Literally everyone can benefit from strength training, and it doesn’t mean you’re going to end up looking like a muscle-bound freak. Improved metabolism, better bone density, fat loss, better mood, stronger immune system and ease of doing everyday tasks are just some of the benefits of resistance training.

As I'm mobile I use the super versatile TRX (Tactical Resistance Exercise) suspension trainer. This consists of straps with handles which allow you to lever your bodweight and apply it to a huge range of different movements for every part of the body. As TRX uses bodyweight most exercises engage the core as well the specific muscles group or groups you're focussing on so you get a better all round workout. The TRX also helps to strengthen ligaments and tendons as well as working your coordination and balance.

Cardiovascular fitness

Your heart is arguably the most important muscle in your body and never ever stops for your whole life, so making is stronger and more efficient is something we can all benefit from.

There are lots of ways to train your cardiovascular system with the obvious ones being running, cycling and swimming. For personal training sessions Boxercise is a great way to get your heart rate up, burn calories, release stress and have fun using practical functional movements that can be done anywhere. I can help you to integrate CV work into your tailored programme to maximise the benefits.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is a buzzword at the moment but is also a very effective way to work your cardio. The additional benefits are that you can also work on muscular strength so you get a fantastic all round workout that will supercharge your metabolism and help with fat burning.

Postural retraining

Modern day life means that we often spend a lot of time sitting whether it be at a work desk, in a car or just on the sofa watching tv. Over time this can adversly affect your posture. The human body is made for movement and is actually an incredible piece of bioengineering which can adapt to most situations. But this can mean it adapts to a sedantry lifestyle too as well to positive training.

Lower back pain and rounded shoulders are common postural issues and can have a debilitating effect on you how you look, feel and move. Fortunately they are also easy to fix in most circumstances with corrective strengthening, stretching and balancing. The relief of getting rid of back pain can be invigorating and is something I love to help clients achieve.

Running conditioning

Obviously the best way to improve your running is to run more, but there is a lot of extra strength training you can do to prevent injuries and make you run stronger, faster and more efficiently.

A single injury can take months to fix, so if you’re training for a race it can have a big impact. I can also help you to achieve running your first race like a 5km, or help you to achieve a dream of running a half or full marathon.

Nutrition

Whatever your fitness and lifestyle goals, changes to what you eat and drink are key, in particular for weight management. Simple changes to your eating habits can make a big difference not only to your weight but to how you feel. Similarly if you’re looking to pack on lean muscle you need to adjust your diet accordingly.

How it works

Get in touch for a free consultation. Tell me what you would like to achieve and then I will tailor a training programme and nutrition strategy specifically to your needs.

I'm mobile so choose a location of your choice such as your appartment, house, office or outdoors in a park or at the beach. This is great for people who are pressed for time or do not like gym or group fitness environements. Alternatively I have access to private training facilities if you prefer.

My main training tools are the TRX suspension trainer, skipping rope and boxing gloves and pads! The TRX suspension trainer uses bodweight and leverage to strengthen the muscles, tendons and ligaments whilst also working the core stablisers.

My approach

I am passionate about helping people achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals whether it be shifting a few kilos, toning up, slimming down, increasing strength or running your first 5km, marathon or triathlon.

Exercise and nutrition can have a hugely positive impact on your life, happiness and well-being. I can help you to become fitter and stay fitter and healthier not just in the short term but create habits which will stay with you in the long term.

I carry out a thorough consultation to find out your exercise history, eating habits and day to day lifestyle in order to build up a detailed picture of your background. This then leads on to and informs the most important subject of what you would like to achieve and why. Gathering all the information about you enables me to tailor a programme specifically for you and your goals. Depending on your needs I would always encourage specific and measurable goals to be set (eg reduce waist line, improve lean muscle, decrease fat).

Once training has started I continually monitor your progress and adapt the programme and exercises accordingly. Every workout is planned, logged and available for you to reference online.

A standard workout format would be:
10min warm up
30mins TRX resistance training
10mins boxercise
10mins cool down stretch

At the end of a session I carry out assisted stretching on clients which allows me to check for postural or muscular imbalances and provide exercises or stretches to address an issue.

My experience

I have been involved in sports and fitness all my life – from football, rugby and cricket, to years of martial arts, surfing, windsurfing (instructor level) and snowboarding. More recently I’ve become an avid runner and have taken part in three Ironman triathlons and eight marathons.

Having worked in an office for 15 years, I’m well aware of how difficult it can be to eat and exercise healthily. But I’m also aware of what a positive impact a few simple and easy lifestyle changes can make and am keen to share these!
