How it works
If you can answer ‘yes’ to all questions within the PAR-Q or been cleared by your Doctor to undertake exercise, apply by email to see if I have availability. To ensure that I can give a truly personal service, there is a limit to how many clients I will work for at one time.
Once accepted, I will send out a fitness, health, lifestyle and nutrition questionnaire for you to complete prior to our consultation. I’ll also ask you to complete a 7 day food diary.
When completed and returned, we’ll have a 1-2-1 personal consultation to clarify detail within your questionnaire and discuss goal setting. There need to be short, medium and long-term goals. Taking a long-term perspective and treating exercise and nutrition as lifestyle changes are vitally important to help you meet your goals and keep you fit, healthy and active for life! It is recommended that you take ‘before’ photos, for progress comparison along the way.
A bespoke, individual fitness plan will be designed in the form of a 6-week progressive exercise programme and, for nutrition, macronutrient and calorie setting, how to ‘track’ your food intake, along with guidance on the food types needed to meet your goals. Your fitness programme can be worked on in 1-2-1 personal training sessions, where technique can be monitored and, trust me, you’ll be motivated and expected to work very hard. Your fitness and nutrition programme will also be available outside of 1-2-1 sessions through our smartphone/tablet App or web browser. This includes video demonstrations of all exercises.
I don’t tend to provide meal plans, unless you specifically wanted me to. I could write you the most nutritious meal plan, which you might follow for a few days but then you might refine it, catering to your own personal tastes and preferences, further individualising it and changing it from the original plan. The best person who knows you is you. I would rather empower you with the right knowledge about nutrition so that choosing the right food for yourself becomes second nature.
There will be weekly progress checks, to see if you’re adhering to the programme, to see if there have been any problems or barriers to participation, to help overcome these and keep you on track for meeting your goals. There is also unlimited text, email and telephone support to help with any exercise or nutrition queries.
Every 6 weeks there will be a full programme progress review. There is little point in designing exercise programmes for longer than 6 weeks at a time (unless you know a client’s goals and abilities over many years). There may be exercises that you don’t enjoy, feel confident doing or challenge you enough. You need progressive overload in ways that you enjoy. So, it’s important to review and revise, and check health benchmark progress. New or adapted exercises will provide a new exercise stimulus, will promote continued adaptations and help with plateau prevention.
