to your success
One of the reasons clients get results with us when they couldn't elsewhere, is that we we take a truly holistic view of your personal situation and the goals you want to achieve before we start to build your plan.
Our Personal Trainers use a Lifestyle medicine based approach to help add structure to the support and education we provide to you. Lifestyle medicine is an evidence-based approach to achieving optimal health through replacing unhealthy behaviors with positive ones.
While promoting optimal health can combat disease, promote vitality and longevity of life, we believe it also provides the best environment for you to achieve your health and fitness goals.
The diagram opposite displays the 6 pillars that play a part in achieving optimal physical and mental health. While each pillar has a direct relationship to optimal health, they all indirectly affect the quality of other pillars around them. So while you may think it is your diet holding you back from results, it could in fact be a combination of stress and lack of sleep that is preventing you from achieving your diet.
Using this framework, we create an overview of your current situation and a road map of how to best achieve your goals. This process enables us to identify the best interventions that will fit with your current lifestyle as well as any potential barriers to success that may get in the way of your progress.
Nutrition is possibly the most important aspect of achieving optimal health.
What we eat can acutely effect our mental state as well as our bodies ability to train or recover. Eating the wrong foods can place our bodies under huge stress, while eating well can enable it to adapt to the stimulus of exercise.
Our initial aim with every client is to ensure they are eating well for their optimal health. This means eating a good balanced diet including wide variety of plant based foods, plenty of fibre, enough protein and healthy fats.
We can then make tweaks and recommendations based on your personal goals, taking into account what fits best into your lifestyle and what approach best suits your personality. This gives you the best chance of adhering to eating well long term and therfore achieving your goals.
Our Personal trainers will fully support you with general advice and recommendations suited to you. Should your require more specific, individual guidance our in house Nutritional therapist Jade can provide one to one sessions and monthly support.
Our Speciality, from your first session we try to engrain the idea of exercise being a stimulus.
Exercise can be used to stimulate changes within the mind and body. From releasing endorphins to improve your mood to promoting fat loss, muscle gain or strength development, exercise is far more than just a tool to burn calories.
Your physical activity levels can also be utilised to promote recovery, decreasing stress and inflamation within the body. It is all about finding the correct balance of stimulus for change and recovery to allow this change to occur.
Through personal training sessions, our world class coaches create the best stimulus for change within your body, also programming the adequate recovery time and activities to ensure you get the best out of your training efforts.
Away from your personal training sessions we also advise the best daily activities or other forms of exercise to help you keep progressing. Whether you want to do all your training with us or just use us for accountability and to give direction once a week or less, we will always keep you moving in the right direction.
Recovery is key, be this physical or mental.
Having looked at your overall routine and weekly stressors, your personal trainer will advise the best activities to allow maximal adaptation and recovery from your personal training sessions.
This could be low intensity or social exercise, a regular massage or rather making time to do something you enjoy to manage mental stresses.
We offer sports massage services to compliment your personal training should you need it.
