A lifetime of involvement in the health & fitness industry, playing competitive sport for most of my life.
In my youth I competed regionally in martial arts whilst also playing football & basketball for local teams. I currently continue to play basketball competitively and use my experience in various sporting fields to relate to the differing demands of each – and empathise with the clients and athletes with whom I work to apply training based on not only assessment and theory but practical understanding.
My background in fitness has seen me work with all manner of individuals from able-bodied high performing clients to those recovering from cardiac surgery and all in-between. My passion at every level is to help people realise goals and become the best version of themselves possible.
I know what it feels like to take myself to my physical limit to achieve goals for whatever reason that may be, so am speaking from experience coupled with an education and understanding that allows me to apply the most effective training approach for everyone I work with.
I also have lifelong asthma, so I know the physical reality of living with, managing effectively & overcoming a physically restrictive chronic disease.
THE PERSONAL TRAINING PROCESS – EVERY CLIENT RECEIVES A BESPOKE PLAN TO SUIT INDIVIDUAL NEEDS – REALISE YOUR POTENTIAL!
Your tailored training program journey — the Elements process.
Aid your long-term fitness development with a bespoke plan.
WE HIGHLY VALUE THE ‘PERSONAL’ ASPECT IN PT – WE GET TO KNOW YOU FIRST & HELP OVERCOME POTENTIAL BARRIERS!
Based on your experience, ability, and on information gathered in Step 1, you will then be offered a session to assess where you are in relation to your goals. This should give us a set of results to see which areas need improvement to reach your goals. We assess basic movement, mobility and fitness at this stage.
IF YOU’RE NOT ASSESSING, YOU’RE GUESSING! WE ENSURE THE PLAN DELIVERED IS TRUE TO YOUR NEEDS & ABILITY!
REVIEWING YOUR PLAN IS CRUCIAL TO LONG TERM PROGRESS – WE GIVE YOU ALL THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO GET TO WORK!
HOW DOES PT DIFFER AT ELEMENTS FROM OTHERS?
We have a bespoke and totally unique approach to 1-1 coaching. From the first consultation session where we will help you identify areas in your own perceived needs that you may not be aware of.
To our assessment protocol will enable us to thoroughly plan out your roadmap to success and no matter which training style suits your goals the most, we will identify the ways that will ensure you get there – while keeping you informed of the WHY behind the WHAT at every stage of your training.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO ACHIEVE FROM PERSONAL TRAINING?
The answer to this lies solely with yourself. We will provide you with everything you need to get to your destination – but it’s on you to walk through the door!
I’VE HEARD PERSONAL TRAINERS ARE JUST THERE TO ‘BEAST ME’, IS THIS TRUE?
In a word, NO. Improving your fitness is tough, but we go through extensive planning with you to ensure your training follows progressive overload, allowing you to make adaptations, recover and come back stronger ready to do it all again! Although exercise must CHALLENGE YOU, to make progress, you need to be able to stick with it!
HOW LONG ARE THE APPOINTMENTS?
Generally, the consultation & assessment session is between 60 & 90 minutes, from there, 1 hour is the standard session length.
I’VE HEARD IT’S EXPENSIVE – IS THIS SO?
As with any service – you are paying a skilled professional for their time and expertise. We have a wide range of options however to suit most budgets. We are happy to run through these with you on request!
