“The only impossible journey is the one you never begin” – Tony Robbins

We want to encourage you to make a decision to start your training, even if it seems impossible right now.
Our beginner’s training is for anyone who would describe themselves as one or more of the following:

  • Physically inactive for longer than 1 year, or exercising less than once a week.
  • Never been the sporty type or keen on gyms, exercises classes, or had much interest in physical activity.
  • Unfamiliar with gyms or exercise equipment but would like to learn and become confident with both.
  • Unsure about how to approach nutrition and calorie targets.
  • Suffering from poor posture (often suffering from a lordotic or kyphotic spine), or having weak core strength.
  • Suffering from limited mobility and stiffness in certain joints (particularly hips or shoulders).
  • Experiencing pain when running or when performing certain movements.

If you describe yourself with any of the statements above then give us a call. The hardest part is always going to be taking that leap and making the decision to speak to someone. If you decide we’re the right Personal Trainers for you then rest assured we’ll do everything possible to make your life changing decision as easy and simple.

For our beginners we take the approach that you are completely new to exercise, nutrition, and goal setting.

We focus on teaching and training you in the basics of resistance (bodyweight and weights equipment exercises), cardiovascular, and mobility exercises. We’ll also teach about nutritional guidance, sleep and recovery, and goal setting. For each of these we will give you small strategies and approaches which will make a huge difference.

If you find you are constantly craving sweet or savoury foods then don’t worry, we have a strategy for that. Constantly tired? We have strategies for that too. Struggle with motivation? We know how to overcome that too!

Your goals integrated into a unique beginners training programme

All our programmes are written in 12 week blocks at a time, so over the 12 weeks we’ll slowly increase the intensity of your training sessions, and increase the difficulty of the challenges. This will keep your training varied, challenging, and allow you to constantly improve.

Your training programme will also be unique to you because we will integrate your goals into our beginners training aims. Your goals will be central to your training and we will perform regular assessments to make sure you stay on track with achieving your goals.
