As exercise is ultimately designed to improve the quality of your life, it makes sense for us to create a plan that will ensure you achieve results utilising exercises you will enjoy, and avoid those that may aggravate any current medical conditions or injuries.
In order to design an effective and safe gym training programme for you, it is vital that we both know your current strengths and weaknesses, so part of assessment is a friendly discussion of your personal goals, aspirations and expectations, as well as information regarding your current lifestyle, work and eating patterns, and physical activity likes and dislikes.
Accurate measurement of physical parameters such as cardio-respiratory fitness, muscular strength, flexibility, body composition, posture and blood pressure, then gives us a realistic picture of your actual physical condition. The combination of the measurements and discussion provide us with a baseline to work from, and with which to compare progress.
The important thing to remember is that there is no such thing as a bad result – it’s an honest appraisal of where you’re at right now. And far from being a judgement, clients use this baseline as a motivational tool when repeat measurements are performed during the programme.
Your personal training exercise programme is designed to be the best course of action to take in order to achieve your goals. It will be simple to follow and take into account your current fitness levels and the time frame we have to work in.
Working with me as your personal coach, you will complete regular fitness sessions, structured in a way that safely and effectively challenge different aspects of fitness (cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, motor skills, and flexibility) to meet your needs.
Regular one-to-one sessions ensure that all exercises are appropriate for your abilities and adapting, modifying and progressing exercises and activities can be performed on the spot as required.
The process or attaining your goals really starts as soon as you take your first steps, as any change in behaviour naturally brings about an adaptation which allows you to perform to a higher level than you did previously. Regular progress reviews help us to quantify these improvements so that, in addition to ‘feeling better’ about exercise, you will be able to see exactly where the improvements are occurring.
Realistically this review process occurs informally during every personal training session, rather than every 4 to 6 weeks (or longer) as would happen within a normal gym environment. Therefore your programme can be updated and progressed more regularly, with continuous feedback on technique ensuring exercises are performed correctly with positive results.
Formal reviews and testing will also be planned, allowing for comparison of your performance against your previous test results to give an indication of improvement and, of course, the effectiveness of the exercise programme.
Whether your overall goal is weight loss, or weight gain, improvements in muscular strength and/or endurance, or better cardiovascular fitness, the bottom line is that you will achieve your goals more quickly with John as your personal trainer!
