FAQ

Personal training

I'm a complete beginner. Is personal training right for me? 

Absolutely! 

What is the format of the sessions? 

Personal training sessions are one hour long. Before your first session, you will fill in a pre-consultation form which will include a heath questionnaire to assess your readiness for physical activity and another questionnaire to find more about your current activity levels and goals. At the first session, we will have a thorough consultation to discuss  your currently lifestyle, activity levels and goals in more detail. We will then set goals and I will conduct assessments  depending on your goals. After the first session, we will have a 10 minute check-in to reflect on... followed by a 45 minute workout (including warm up) and a 10 minute cool down. You will be sent an update workout programme to do ahead of the next session.

What should I wear?

Sports clothing you are comfortable in! Tighter-fitting clothes are preferable as it is easier to assess posture and technique. You can train in trainers or barefoot - just make sure the surface you train on isn't slippery. 

 

What equipment do I need?

You can start with no equipment, especially if you are a complete beginner. However, as you build strength and experience, it will be preferable and sometime essential to get the results you want.

As a starter, I would recommend:

1 light set of weights (dumbbells)

1 medium set of weights (dumbbells or kettlebells)
