To boost your fitness you need a personal trainer who can support you and your goals.
To be specific I’d say:
You need a trainer with maturity and experience.
I’m 59 and have over 20 years of training experience in the fitness industry. I’ve been around the block so many times that I know what works and what is nonsense.
You need a trainer with skills.
Being told to jog on a treadmill and do a few push ups, or a bicep curl does not deliver the fitness you need. To become genuinely fit you need to build a skill set.
For over 20 years I’ve taught and coached “basic fitness”, boxing, Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting , gymnastics and postural/therapeutic training.
You need a trainer who can actually teach.
Teaching is my passion. Whilst I have all the normal fitness “instructor” qualifications, I also have proper adult teaching qualifications, including Level 5 qualification in English as a foreign language and I teach regular public classes and events.
You need a trainer who can help with an injury.
Apart from being a physical trainer, I’m also a Level 5 sport massage therapist so I tend to spot things that need tweaking early so we can get them fixed. I can also “cup” and apply medical acupuncture and Im also “rock doc”.
I also spent a long time with a health department delivering GP referral sessions, so I can help if you have medical conditions as long as we can include your doctor/ support workers in the process.
You need a trainer who is bothered about people.
I’m genuinely bothered about people. The fact that I’m fairly old means that I know how crucial to physical and mental health having a supportive caring trainer is. On top of my work in Fitness, I’m an advanced first aider with a leading first aid charity so I’m always volunteering at events which really means I’m always trying to help people.
You need a trainer who is useful in a crisis.
Too many trainers have little to no first aid ability. As an advanced first aider. I’m really useful to have around if things go wrong.
You need a trainer who is reasonably priced
I charge £40 an hour if we train in the park, but I can run sessions from gyms a few minutes from Blackfriars district line tube (EC4) station or from Bethnal Green Tube station in E2. If you are happy with the extra fee they will charge (£15). I work extensively online too!
