How Long Should You Have a Personal Trainer?

This is a question that crops up a lot; but the truth is, there is no specific answer. If you’re asking this, then you’re likely approaching personal training in the wrong way… why is this? 

It’s because it is something that depends on your ultimate fitness goals, and whether you want to stay in shape after you reach them. Ask yourself questions like; could you do this alone? Would it benefit you to have more guidance after you’ve gotten to where you want to be?

Advanced Stretching techniques

The following is from Ashlyn Leidy from the Stretch Solution who has created a master class course that can be helpful and valuable to personal trainers by showing them how to stretch their clients from head to toe with stretches via videos, quizzes & lecture. Please see the link at the bottom with more info on the course.

Did you know that only 20% of personal trainers know how to stretch their clients from head to toe?

Physical and Mental Benefits of exercising outside

As a Personal Trainer I am passionate about helping others to get more active and using the ‘outdoor’ gym via ‘green’ exercise. There are many physical and mental benefits of exercising outside in the fresh air and natural environment during winter, which I have found both personally and whilst training with my clients.

Physical Benefits
Exercising outdoors is associated with the following physical benefits:
- Increased Energy and Get-up-and-Go

Why the Country Needs Personal Trainers?

The following is an interesting, thought-provoking and detailed guest post article on although gym memberships have grown in the UK so have UK Waistlines and thus why the country needs personal trainers. The guest article was kindly written by Scott Beaman who works with Robert Hicks, the head content writer for Insure4Sport (http://www.insure4sport.co.uk/), who provide specialist insurance for Personal Trainers. Robert also writes for national newspapers, numerous lifestyle magazines and several sport publications.

Inspiring exercise moment - Steep hill cycling challenge

For me being a Personal Trainer is the greatest 'job' in world. It does not feel like 'work'. Getting paid for something I genuinely enjoy doing - exercise and fitness is my hobby - and crucially making a difference to people's lives. It is a great feeling knowing I am helping, supporting and inspiring clients to change their lives and to live more active and healthy lifestyles.

Today – as always – was a busy and action packed day. Lots of cycling, running, power walking and circuits including press ups, lunging and squats. Living life in the active lane.
