Private tuition on a one-to-one basis.
I offer private tuition on a one-to-one basis from my home studio, or in your own home environment, or at the gym working on your specific needs. My personal training sessions are available to everyone regardless of shape, size, gender or age.
I can build you your own personal fitness routine based around your short term and long term goals, taking into consideration your:
BMI and calorie intake
blood pressure and heart rate checks
Body fat %
current fitness level
I will take into consideration whether you wish to incorporate gym work, outdoor work (perhaps training for your first 10k) or if you wish to work from the privacy of your own home or my Studio.
Why should I use a Personal Trainer?
There are many reasons why you may want to use a Personal Trainer. You may wish to train for a specific event or challenge, perhaps you have gained a few unwanted pounds, perhaps you have been training by yourself and are not getting the results you want or you may be recovering from a sports injury and need specific advice and training to aid you recovery. I can help you achieve your goals and take your training up to the next level of fitness and make sure you get the results you want. I will motivate you, encourage you and give you that extra push when you are at the point of giving up. When someone tells me that through our classes, or sessions, they have become not only healthier, less stressed, more grounded and are living a more positive way of thinking and living it is an amazing gift to me. Seeing a client improve week by week and seeing them push their fitness further than they thought possible gives me a great sense of happiness.

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 12 mile-long obstacle courses designed by the Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses and half a million inspiring participants. Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world (www.toughmudder.co.uk)
One of my clients has been following my Half Marathon Program (which includes doing a 10k) to get themselves fit for the above event. It is an extremely tough challenge and they had to be both mentally and physically fit. I am pleased to say that they completed the course in a time of 2 hours 9 minutes. Tough Mudder events are not races and the participants face many challenging obstacles along the route, nevertheless it was still a very good time! My client also had a quick recovery time after the event!
