Personal training generally takes the form of one-to-one
exercise education and supervision. This is carried out
following a face to face consultation to assess the clients'
goals, health history and exercise background etc.
The training can take place either at a gym that the client
is currently a member of or at a suitable location that is
structure of the workouts can vary but generally consist of:
- Resistance (weight) training
- Functional training - which includes postural assessment
and correction techniques
- Strength and conditioning for sports
- Cardio-vascular conditioning and stretching.
I strongly recommend that we look at each of these aspects,
as they are all vital to the progression of the client's overall
fitness and well-being.
From here we specialise the program depending on the client's
specific goals be it -
- Sports performance development
- or whatever...
I pride myself on instruction and supervision of correct
technique and form in all movements - be they stretches or
actual exercises. I have lectured at a national level on this
topic and have exposed the fact that many of the movements
taught at present may actually be dangerous and ineffective.
Be sure to employ an expert to teach you correct technique!
it would be a shame for a person to grow old without seeing
the beauty and strength of which their body is capable
