I love my job and thrive on seeing people making improvements whether that be to their body composition, strength, conditioning or mobility.
Above all the physiological changes I love seeing shifts in peoples attitudes that come with achieving their training goals; increased self-confidence, energy and a shift in their personal perception of what is possible.
Training wise, I focus heavily on improving movement patterns by getting rid of restrictions, improving stability and increasing strength. I am passionate about the health and body composition benefits of resistance training/moving weights. The message that I fight hard to instil in people is: Appropriate compound lifts such as the deadlift can and should be performed by everyone, regardless of age and gender....This means you!
I enjoy seeing people making steps towards their goals either in training or rehab.
I think it’s important that everyone stays active to some extent and that’s where I come in; to help push people to their limits whilst keeping a big focus on correct movement and addressing the root of an injury or potential injury!
A big focus on training with me looks at instilling correct technique and creating cues that can help get someone from point A to point B.
I also push people a lot and look at ways of motivating everyone to give me their all during our sessions, to help get them the best results.
As a personal trainer my aim is to teach new skills and help people to achieve their fitness goals.
Most clients initially hire a personal trainer due to a poor body image/health reasons but once started can realise the full benefits of working out, which has so much more to offer than just looking better in a swimsuit!
The body wants/needs to exercise, not only does it improve our fitness, strength, flexibility and overall health, but the natural endorphins that occur and of course having a better body image, can greatly improve one’s mental outlook on life.
The pre-conceived perception for some of personal training sessions, is of being pushed way beyond their comfort zone/capabilities, but for me, confidence and a sense of achievement in each session is key.
For that reason rather than go full beast mode, I start my sessions with a full and lengthy assessment of the individuals starting point and goals, and we build on that session by session.
Working hard, learning new skills and hopefully having loads of fun!
