I have been in the fitness industry for over 12 years now, in which time I have worked in a number of roles from Fitness Instructor, Duty Manager and Regional Manager. I can honestly say the last 18 months spent Personal Training in Bristol has been the most rewarding.
99% of the people that have trained with me have found the exercise fun, rewarding and have achieved their goals (just ask them)! Working with people in the gym it’s important to remember that everyone ‘has a goal!’ But, given that 80% of people who exercise DO NOT EXERCISE ENOUGH to achieve their goal, are pretty much wasting their time and will fail. I aim to address this issue and resolve it for all my clients.
TAILORING FOR ALL BUDGETS
What I have learnt to do over the past 18 months is to create a product which suits all budgets, helps to improve client retention to their training and is fun! My 8 week ‘weight loss and fitness club’ Fitcamp gives clients the opportunity to work at their own pace and to monitor via a food diary what they eat, then add a bit of discipline and the results have been phenomenal! 80% of the people who attend the programme continue to do so, therefore there is no ‘drop off’ from their exercise.
They say Nutrition is 80% of the battle. With Herbalife® you are given food menus to follow each week and alongside a comprehensive range of products you will have more energy, feel better, stronger and lose weight!
For more details on this, have a look at my Herbalife® nutrition page and kick start your diet and reduce those destructive cravings. It’s affordable and convenient nutrition.
|Whatever your goals, they are achievable.
I became overweight after a series of personal stressors overwhelmed my life. Back in April 2012 I weighed 108Kg, and a BMI rated ‘overweight’.
I was never ‘big’ but I started running 4 spin classes a week as a service for my client base, then I combined indoor cycling with my own training and with the help of the Herbalife® weight loss products I have lost over 2 stone and now sit at 90Kg and ‘normal weight’.
|My Top Tips|
1. Exercise at least 4 times a week for 45 minutes or more at an intensity that causes you to sweat on the RPE scale (Rate of Perceived Exertion) around 7-8.
2. Consume a balanced diet, low in saturated fat and sugar, and drink at least 2 litres of water a day.
3. Have the discipline to do the above and make small sacrifices e.g., get up early to exercise, train at home when the kids have gone to bed, cut out ‘chocolate/alcohol from your diet.
