PERSONAL TRAINING

WHAT WE WILL DO FOR YOU

  • Create a detailed training programme specific to your personal goals & update your programme as the weeks go on. Variety is very important!

  • Help you understand nutrition and why it is so important. This will lead to a specific food plan, tailored to your needs.

 

  • Teach you how to perform each exercise safely, effectively and efficiently. Many of us make mistakes when exercising.

  • Motivate you to ensure that what we are doing will become a lifestyle and not just a short-term task. We are in it for the long term!

 

  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses, through a range of fitness tests and screenings:

 

  • Medical (Heart Rate & Blood Pressure)

  • Body Fat Percentage

  • Weight Analysis

  • Lifestyle Analysis (inc nutrition)

  • Posture Assessment

  • Strength Assessment

  • Cardiovascular Assessment

  • Flexibility Assessment

These tests will of course be at your discretion. Once the assessments are finished we can look into:

  • Your bespoke training plan

  • Nutritional plan (see more below)

  • Goal setting

Now you're ready to let the fun start!

NUTRITION

If weight loss/toning up is one of your goals, what you choose to eat and drink plays a huge part. 

You could do all the personal training sessions and fitness classes you want, but if your diet is not in the right place then this will drastically delay or prevent you getting where you want to be. 

We will discuss your current diet and figure out the best approach moving forwards. We are all different in our habits and therefore need to approach our diet on a very personal level. If a certain diet worked for a friend does not mean it will work for you. 

As you can see I have not been afraid to use the word "diet". Diet is originally a greek word meaning "way of life". We all have a diet of some sort, whether good or bad.  

WHY MANY PEOPLE HAVE COME TO ERGO

TONE UP/LOSE WEIGHT

Over the combined 35 years our team have worked with clients who want to make a better version of themselves. We can guarantee we'll be by your side, giving 100% to help you by using all of our knowledge and by motivating you every step of the way. Of course, you have to be willing to make some changes, in order to change yourself!

Let’s remember that this will be a change you want to make last forever. Ergo, there’s no rush! (unless of course you have a short term goal). We'll assess your current level, and then we’ll decide together exactly what you want to achieve and how best to do it!

INJURY REHAB

Have you recently had surgery? Or are you going to soon? Meet the expert: I’ve already had three operations on my right knee at the age of 30. I know what you’re thinking, how can he be a personal trainer? Well, I am. And I still run, play football and compete in all sorts of sports. A huge reason behind this is because of my strict regimes in order to prepare pre and post op.

 

Does this make the rehab exciting? Not for most. What’s exciting is the prospect of being able to go back to what you were doing, at the same level or sometimes even stronger. I’ve dealt with hip replacements, hip resurfacing, knee-replacements, arthroscopies in almost every joint you can think of and many more injuries. It could just be a bad back or it could be a lot more.

WHY MANY PEOPLE HAVE COME TO ERGO

I HAVE NEVER USED A GYM

Those that have never exercised before will always find it the hardest to get going. That first initial step is a very big one. This can be for numerous reasons but mostly people struggle with knowing how or when to start.

 

Many of our clients have come to Ergo having never done any exercise, sometimes in their lives, some times in the last 20 years. Want to know what the best part is? Which they very quickly found out. It’s NEVER too late.

SPORTS SPECIFIC

We've helped tailor programmes for the following sports: swimming, running, cycling, golf, football, tennis, rugby, hockey, gymnastics, climbing & horse riding. We still take part in many of these sports ourselves.

 

This is crucial to understanding what needs to be done for each athlete – understanding when or why they are struggling to improve. You can read numerous articles online about how to get better at whatever you’re trying to get better at. Some of those articles might be accurate. What we will do very differently is assess and figure out where the weaknesses lie, then create a programme that will turn these weaknesses into strengths.
