Personal Training

My approach to training you is slightly different. Where as most standard PT's will be beasting you and looking at the scales to see how much weight you have lost we will be concentrating on your strengths and weaknesses and working toimproving your general function.

'Form follows function'

Just as an athlete works hard to improve themselves to be able to use their body and mind at every increasing levels of ability so we will be striving to improve your function. Whatever it is you want to be able to achieve is attainable and is the true essence of training. The by-product of this is of course weight loss, improved fitness, strength, mobility, stability, stamina etc.

'Exercise is Fun but training has a goal'

Swimming, jogging, dancing, step classes, body pump, yoga,boot camps etc are all fun general fitness activities. They are great to do and improvements can be made but theres nothing like getting a full on training program and measuring results and working towards agreed goals within realistic time limits.

I take the teacher/student approach

After spending many years in martial arts and other physical disciplines like American football I often took the role as a Sensei, coach or a trainer. I will help assist you to learning about yourself, your strengths and your weaknesses, so we can ultimately build the foundation from which you can excel to a better more integrated you.

You will learn a great deal more than the cookie cutter approach and keep that information for life.

I will teach you the real world secrets to weight-loss not the fast tech body transformation quick fixes. This is for life not a take your money and see you later approach.

Many people have trained with me for years and still have much to learn.

We can do coaching online nowadays as well via skype or of course in person. Many people just can't travel into London but require some accountability and contact so Skype is just perfect for this and can be a good cost saving. Ive trained with many experts across the world using platforms such as skype to very good effect.

Ive seen too many people over the years jump into exercise regimes which are just to far beyond their capabilities. People can cope for some time but often eventually get hurt, tired, frustrated and give up until next time they feel the urge to get exercising again.

Facing the real truth of where you really are, can mean takinga step back in ones thinking. Its pointless you doing bench presses when you cant even do pressups and have not real physical control over your body and a distinct lack of mindful connection to your muscles.

One has to earn the right for instance to train with heavy weights, but do we even really need to? do we need to be subscribing to the go hard or go home mentality? If you ask me the answers is maybe, sometimes but most of the time simple training building on success is so much better. After all Its not a race, not a 12 week body fat reducing transformation for a wedding or a holiday or just to feel good about yourself, these are just ego builders that soon get lost and forgotten by the wayside on life's long road.

We will be building a body and mind for life, its the best most fulfilling battle you'll ever fight and you better prepare yourself because it has so many ways of knocking you down. 

You certainly don't need to do the insane body building, crossfit, or heaven forbid the boot camp style routines that honestly just damage your joints, tighten up the muscles, and screw with your nervous system.

The human body can adapt with much simpler regular exercise, heres a comparison.

Why beat yourself up in the gym thats just creating more metabolic stress especially when combined with a diet high in proteins that just taxes your system even more and doesn't provide you with an abundance of energy, anti oxidants and nutrients for your body to thrive.
