What is personal training and coaching? What and who is it for?
You may think of personal training in relation to someone who wants to drop a few pounds ahead of a big event like a wedding or a holiday, or for someone who wants to work towards a photo shoot.
Which are all valid and valuable uses of personal training.
But with me, it's about more than just that.
Personal training with me will get you physically stronger and fitter. Depending on your goal, you'll also lose some body fat and/or put on some muscle mass. All massive benefits to your physical health.
But there are also numerous other benefits - the mental health boost that comes from the confirmation that yes you can do the things you thought you couldn't, yes you can achieve the goals that seemed unreachable.
Your sleep and energy levels improve.
You can rely less on caffeine and sugar to get you through the day.
Your mobility improves.
That bad back you have from sitting at a desk or driving all day starts to ease.
The mental load of these things starts to lift.
And in time, and with consistency, your confidence to try new things and your ability to move better improves more and more.
While the numbers on the scales, the measuring tape and on the barbell are all physical, useful measurements of these improvements, often the measurements that have the greatest impact are those you can't necessarily 'see' until you step back and look at how far you've come and how differently you feel and move every day.
As a personal trainer and coach, I'm dedicated to helping my clients use their time training with me as a tool that works for them in their everyday lives.
