Personal Training

There are many reasons why you may require that personal touch when it comes to your health, fitness and wellbeing.  

At EL-ES Health & Personal Training we can direct you to the right place in order to show you the potential benefits of how a personal trainer can help you decide if the financial investment is worthwhile.

Achieving your goals

Goal setting is important when you make the decision to work with a personal trainer (PT).  Whether you need a bit of a kick up the butt to get you back into gear or a longer term goal of being ready for a sports event or a special occasion your PT will help you to achieve this and help you towards making your fitness and nutritional goals. Your PT will take into account your current level of fitness as well as nutirtion and discusses what and how you want to achieve this through your workouts and your own personal time. You may have a good idea of the goals you want to set, your PT is able to help you break them down into smaller goals that are more specific and realistic. The personal trainer also helps assess your progress towards these personal goals of yours.

Tailor Made Workouts & Nutritional advice

At EL-ES your PT will create a specific workout plan for you based on what you want to achieve, just like your personal goals. A personalised workout plan may give you greater results than our general class workout plans.  This may be because your PT will have a more personal and better knowledge of your physical condition and medical background, they are able to make accommodations to the program to fit your needs.

Your PT will also go through your current nutrition and advise accordingly using the standards set by the healthy eating guidelines laid out by the NHS (Eat Well Guidelines)

Full Instruction Given

Your EL-ES PT will teach you, as a client, the most appropriate and correct way to perform each exercise movement within your routine. Your PT will ensure you perform the movement correctly by showing you how to execute the movement and they will observe as you carry this out so they can correct any issues with your posture and / or your technique. It is important that you learn the correct way to perform each exercise as this will reduce any risk of injury. The instruction your PT offers you will pave the way in giving you the knowledge and courage to be able to do the exercises on your own at home or within one of our classes with our sister small group training provider at NTKFC; getting professional fitness instruction with EL-ES can benefit you in many ways you wouldn't have previously considered.

You will stay Motivated

A common reason why people give up on exercise or are sporadic in their attendance at classes or in the gym is due to a lack of self motivation.  It can difficult to maintain levels of motivation when you exercise on your own. Sessions with an EL-ES personal trainer will enhance your motivation and help you to continue regularly working out. Whether or not you train with a PT for every session, it is knowing that you're soon to meet for another session will motivate you to keep on going. You will also be able to display to your personal trainer the improvements in form, strength and execution of each exercise as your tailor made program proceeds.

Accountability is Key to Your Success

If you have ever tried to exercise on your own how long did you last?  You more than likely found that it was much more simple to find an excuse to skip your session or find a more pleasurable activity that satisfies your mood at the time.  Adopting an eventual lack of commitment to your self made exercise plan is all too common and there you may run the risk of giving up completely and having to start all over again when you feel down.  As there's no one to hold you accountable for your actions you can be sure to find that when you work with a PT at EL-ES they will help to keep you accountable, making it more likely that you'll stick with your training program.

They Say Variety is the Spice of Life

Your personal trainer not only teaches you a variety of exercise methods, they will also be able provide you with alternatives if a specific exercise is not working for or suited to you.  Your PT will be able to adapt whatever exercise is not suited to one that best suits you whilst at the same time giving you the same benefits. As you make advances in your ability and fitness your PT will make adjustments to ensure that you are continuing to make good progress.

An Efficient way to Train

During your workout your EL-ES personal trainer is able to make the most of your time spent with them; this can increase the efficiency of your exercise program. This comes into play more-so when circumstances change and you find yourself with a limited amount of time to exercise. An example of this is if you don't have your usual time to devote yourself to the session and have to cut your 1-hour training session short one day . In those cases your EL-ES personal trainer will tailor make the session so that it provides the same benefits as it would have during your usual session but in half the time.
