Personal Training can help everybody regardless of your current level of fitness. It is just as important to us to encourage sedentary and/or overweight people to start and continue a program of exercise as it is to train elite athletes to enhance their performance in competition.
A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in exercise prescription and instruction. Here at Physicality we have two Personal Trainers with Level 3 Diplomas from the University of Bath – Carole Page and Carl Avery.
We treat every client as an individual and our programs are tailored to suit that specific individual. This approach will help to motivate you to achieve your own goals and our programs will be based on your unique combination of current fitness levels, aims for the future and time/work constraints.
Further, your sessions will be one-to-one in our private gym so you will be exercising with only yourself and your trainer present. If you prefer to train with a friend, we will take a maximum of two people by prior arrangement with you.
Advantages of exercise
Proper exercise prescription may result in improved body composition, physical performance, heart condition and health outcomes. In addition, physical exercise has a beneficial effect on mental health and self esteem.
Advantages of Personal Training compared to training alone
Personal training can make training both enjoyable and more productive than training alone. It results in higher strength, higher workout intensities, and higher perceived exertion during exercise.
We develop exercise prescription plans for aerobic exercise, resistance exercise, and stretching routines which are specific to the individual.
A full personal assessment is carried out as part of the first session and repeated at a later session to measure a client’s improvements in physical fitness. The assessment includes:
- Resting heart rate
- Blood pressure
- Height and weight
- Body mass index (BMI)
- Waist to hips ratio
- Skin fold measurement
- Cardio-respiratory fitness
- Muscular strength and endurance
- Joint ranges of movement
- Individual client profile (goals/motivations/constraints)
We also aim to educate clients in many other aspects of wellness besides exercise, including general health and nutrition guidelines. As qualified personal trainers,if we suspect that a client has a medical condition that could prevent the client from safe participation in an exercise program, we are obliged to refer the client to the proper health professional for prior clearance.
