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 in the gym!
Help you understand nutrition and why it is so important. This will lead to a personal food plan, tailored to your needs.
Teach you how to perform each exercise safely, effectively and efficiently when in the gym. Many of us make mistakes when training.
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 personal fitness tests and screenings:
Medical (Heart Rate & Blood Pressure)
Body Fat Percentage
Lifestyle Analysis (inc nutrition)
These tests will of course be at your discretion. Once the assessments in the gym are finished we can look into:
Personal Training plan
Personal Nutritional plan (see more below)
Personal Goal setting
Now you're ready to let the fun start in the gym!
If weight loss/toning up is one of your goals, what you choose to eat and drink plays a huge part, no matter how often you are coming into the gym.
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 ergo 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 15 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 personal 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 when in the gym or out in the world of temptations.
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 and out of the gym.
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.
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.
