  • Knowledge / expertise
  • Motivation
  • Goal achievement
  • Supervised Instruction
  • Cost effective
  • Privacy
  • Safe-Injury prevention
  • Time-effective
  • Personalised Programmes

Knowledge / expertise
There is a critical factor in ensuring you get the best out of your training programme. If you don’t have it, it almost guarantees failure. And that’s the best information. Most people are busy enough with their job and their daily lives to be off researching the latest techniques on training and diet. But some people do this for a living. They are usually called ‘personal trainers’.

Many people who want to get into great shape start off with the best of intentions but after a few weeks very often that ‘rock solid’ commitment is usually not 100%. And even if it is, a lack of knowledge on how best to train means that many will literally spend hours and hours running on a treadmill every week with little or no gain.

How many people do you know who spend ages in a gym but don’t get results? Quite often the reason is because they don’t know what to do.

Many will spend a fortune joining a gym only to leave a couple of months later without any results. Why not invest your money wisely and get a return? Personal trainers, once they have the best information, will allow you to achieve what you want.

One-to-one sessions also provide our clients with greater motivation.

The client is constantly monitored, motivated and supported to steer him/ her towards the agreed goals in a safe, effective and efficient manner.

People have told me that having to keep an appointment means they are more likely to work out than if they were just going to the gym on their own.

People often give up because they dont have the correct guidance.

Goal Achievement
This is very much a goal-oriented service and focuses on each individual. (As opposed to the alternative method of joining a public gymnasium and being left very much to your own devices).
So at the start we discuss your goals so we know what we are setting out to achieve and we design your programme accordingly.

Supervised Instruction
Supervised Instruction in correct technique to maximise results.
A qualified fitness instructor who is specifically qualified and experienced in the area of personal training supervises the clients’ overall routine, as well as each workout.

Cost effective
Many people spend money on Gym membership and put in a lot of time and effort but don’t get the desired results because they are simply doing the wrong things for what they wish to achieve. Hiring a Personal Trainer ensures that your training is geared towards your goals and that your time spent training is beneficial. Even if your plan is to use a public gym and train yourself in the long term, why not hire a Personal Trainer initially so that you can learn how to train properly first? Then you may be confident enough to work out on your own and make the occasional visit to your trainer to ensure that you are staying on the right track.

You can train in a private environment, which suits people who may feel self conscious about training in a crowded Gym.

Safe-Injury prevention
Our programmes are geared to achieve results and with one-to-one attention our clients train in a controlled environment each and every time they work out. This dramatically reduces the prospect of picking up injuries as a Personal Trainer will take any injuries / illnesses into account when writing your routine.

With our training programme, you get results without spending every waking hour in the gym. 3 x 20 or 30 minutes sessions a week with some changes to your diet (and that doesn’t mean eating grass!!) and very soon you’ll see changes.

I think the problem with exercising in gyms is that people can spend too long doing the wrong things. At Lifegym we can create unique training programmes for each individual that take as little as 20 to 30 minutes, 3 times per week.

90 minutes a week – Get into great shape…genuinely

In the time it takes you to watch a soccer match or 1 and a half episodes of your favourite Soap Opera you could be achieving your ideal body shape and all that goes with it.

So what is Personal Training?

Basically Personal Training is working with the client on a one to one basis on a training and nutrition plan to help you achieve your desired goals.

The services offered are supervised training and nutrition plans to help the individual achieve their desired goals such as:

  • Weight loss
  • Weight-gain and muscle building
  • Tone up
  • Sports specific training
  • Aerobic conditioning
  • Endurance training
  • Energy increase
