If you’ve ever been in a commercial gym you’ll see similar patterns. So called ‘Personal’ Trainers who set up a workout for a client. That client leaves only for the next one to arrive, only to be given the exact same workout.
Every person is unique, you have unique DNA, unique struggles and unique goals and if you are going to work with a Personal Trainer they need to know what it is about you that is unique to then work out a strategy that ensures you are optimising your approach.
When we work with clients we strive to work through every element that influences your results and tailor everything to suit you both as an overall approach and on the day. If you come in to train tired, we will adapt to how you are feeling. If you are full of energy, we’ll look to take advantage of that to maximise your results.
There is no one size fits all approach to fitness. What works for one person doesn’t work for everyone. But by tapping into what it is that makes you unique and working with that, rather than fighting it (or ignoring it) you are guaranteed to find the success you are looking for.
Our clients are not simply to be trained for about an hour and then forgotten about. Your life beyond the gym is important. We will ensure we look to what is going on in your work life, how your sleep patterns are affecting you, look at your nutrition, measure your results (based entirely on your goals, not just what we want to measure), send you reports and feedback out-with your sessions to ensure you are able to take them in when you have the time to read them rather than wasting your gym time.
Your progress is the priority, not the sessions. So, if your time is best spent working through your nutrition issues, that’s what we will do. If you feel you need to unload your problems or work through problems you are having sleeping, that’s where the focus will go.
You have a goal and our job is to help you realize it, not just come up with hard workouts and get you out of breath.
Personal Training is not an “I say, you do” scenario (or at least it shouldn’t be). The purpose of personal training is to give you the tools to make an improvement in your life that will make you happier and be able to enjoy your life more.
So, you will never be forced into a situation where you are dreading the workouts or the food restrictions are something you just need to ‘push through’. These approaches only lead to temporary and unsustainable results.
Rather it is about finding an agreed path where you feel any level of discomfort you are achieving is outweighed by the rewards you are going to achieve to such a level that you either don’t mind, or better yet, enjoy the process.
Similarly, as your goals are the priority, whereas most facilities have their personal trainers working as rivals in competition with one another, everything we do here is based on the best outcome for the client. As such, all trainers, coaches, sports therapists, physios and anyone else who is ever involved with our team, will work together whenever necessary to ensure you have the best advice and tools at your disposal to maximise your potential.
