Your Questions, My Answers
Am I a professional trainer?
Yes. I have a BSc (Hons) Degree in Sport & Exercise Science.
I am also a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) at a standard of Level 3 Advanced Instructor.
REPs is a public register which recognises the qualifications and expertise of health enhancing exercise instructors in the UK.

If I want to stay fit will I always need a personal trainer?
When you decide you want to get fit, the best place to start is by employing a personal trainer. You will need support, guidance and motivation. I can't teach clients to be motivated, but I can give them the skills and encouragement they need to motivate themselves. I aim to empower my clients to meet their immediate fitness goals and give them the ability to develop healthy exercise habits for life.
Why should I spend money on a personal trainer? I can do it by myself.
Of course you can train alone. But I believe that my main purpose is to motivate you and develop a customised training programme with you that corresponds to your requirements, problems and goals. I will mainly be your advisor. I can detect when your posture is not quite right or when you are putting too much pressure on the wrong muscles. Also I can recommend running paths or the right exercise.
How is my fitness plan decided?
During the initial free consultation we will discuss your goals and fitness targets. I will determine your exercise history, likes and dislikes and we will agree a programme that will be designed exclusively for you.
How often do I have to or can I train with you?
That is entirely up to you and depends on the amount of time you have and how committed you are. Usually, I train with my clients a minimum of twice a week.
