- HOW WILL A PERSONAL TRAINER MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
A personal trainer serves as a coach, motivator and teacher.
It is a personal trainers job to assess your current physical and
mental state with regard to barriers and motivations, establish very
specific goals, design an individualised programme and do whatever
it takes to get you on track to achieving your goals. This continued
commitment will ensure results through a continually adapted, challenging
and progressive programme.
- WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN AN ACTUAL PERSONAL TRAINING SESSION?
You will perform both weight resistance and cardiovascular
training. You will be demonstrated proper form and technique, and
have explained the fundamentals behind the specific training that
you are focussing on. Although high intensity training is the ultimate
goal, you can expect to take it easy for the first couple of sessions
to allow your body to adjust to the new style of training.
You will be taught about cardiovascular training. Depending on your
programme, you will be set cardio goals for each week. You will learn
about high and low intensity cardio and how these styles of training
fit into your specific programme.
- HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE THE EFFECTS OF TRAINING?
The onset of training is approximately 3 weeks. This means
that after 4 weeks training the effects of the first week will show.
This is why the body may still continue to develop even after training
has stopped. This is an approximation - some people notice results
- WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN'T MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
It is standard for a client to give 24 hours notice of cancellation.
Failure to give this period of notice may incur the cost of the session
- HOW OFTEN SHOULD I EXERCISE?
It is recommended that everyone exercise for 30 minutes 3
times a week to maintain conditioning. So those exercisers attempting
to progress their conditioning should exercise a minimum of 45-60
minutes 3 times a week. It is recommended that at least 1 hour of
this be with a personal trainer, to ensure continued development and
to monitor progress.
- WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
The only equipment you need is suitable clothing and footwear.
Clothes that restrict movement may not be suitable for the range of
activity within a session. I will provide all other equipment for
- HOW WILL PROGRESS BE MONITORED?
I will keep a detailed log of each session and chart progress,
which will be reviewed and discussed as appropriate.
- WHAT HAPPENS IN BAD WEATHER?
We get wet!! Just bring waterproofs and a change of clothes, and a
rain cover for your buggy.
- WHAT DO I WEAR?
Comfortable clothes which are suitable for exercise (preferably jogging
bottoms and layers. Please wear trainers and a good sports bra.
- WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Sense of humour, gloves and hat / sunscreen and hat!!! Plastic bottle
of water, snacks for baby, health screening form and £5
- WILL ANY BUGGY DO?
Yes, but we do find buggy boards unhelpful as they can encourage bad
posture. Bring your most robust buggy.
- CAN I BRING OLDER CHILDREN OR DOGS?
Older children are welcome as long as they are in a buggy. Unfortunately,
whilst we love dogs, health and safety does not allow us to have them
in our classes.
- MY MUM IS VISITING, CAN SHE COME TOO?
Dads, Grannies, Grandpas come free!
- MY BABY IS OVER A YEAR OLD - HAVE I LEFT IT TOO LATE
No - sometimes it takes a while to get around to thinking about
yourself, so come along and do something for you!
- DO I HAVE TO BE FIT?
Certainly not!! Buggyfit is for everyone and
we are used to weak pelvic floors (but we work on this), leaky boobs,
and flabby tummies (but not for long!). You are not alone and will
be able to work at a level that is right for you!
