Following on from the previous topic on apps, we wanted to show just how different training is with one of our awesome trainers.
The topic on apps can be found here:
When working with a trainer, the first thing we do is take you through a consultation where we find out about your previous training, what type of training you like and what you dislike. All of our clients have their own journey which they go through, and all start at different stages of fitness – so it is important for us to take this into consideration.
Not only this, we also run through a pre-screening questionnaire so that we can find out about any previous medical issues or injuries our clients may have had. This ensures that whilst training, we can work around these issues to offer safe and effective exercise, whilst offering a truly individualised service.
Unfortunately with an app – none of these issues are taken into account. We think it is fantastic that you have taken the first step in wanting to change your lifestyle; however this might mean that the exercises may be difficult or may not suit you, or may not take into consideration any injuries you may have, which could ultimately end up making things worse or could cause further injury.
Secondly, we will guide you through a movement analysis – finding where our strengths, weaknesses and imbalances are in our body. This is an important step we take all of our clients through so we can ensure we focus on strengthening and improving the mobility of the areas so that we can live healthy, pain free lives. This ensures our training transpires to more than just in the gym – but being able to move freely without pain during the whole day.
Working with lots of individuals from office workers, to business owners, to maintenance workers – we all have different movements which can cause us pain or tightness over a long period of time – and with an app these are rarely taken into account. However with a trainer, we are able to offer assistance in the form of our training plan and home individual plans so that we can focus on reducing pain whilst guiding you towards your goals.
Our expertise of movement, combined with your previous history and seeing you as an individual can help you above and beyond with reaching your goals.
