What should I wear and bring with me to personal training?

This obviously depends on the weather, but I recommend my clients wear layers. If it's dry, shorts, t-shirt, tracksuit, sweater, trainers, a towel and water bottle.

If it's wet, add a water proof jacket and a baseball cap to keep the rain off your face.

How long will the session last?

That is dependent on you. Most clients opt for 45 - 60 minute sessions. This allows me to warm you up, work you out throughly and complete a good cool down and stretch.

What equipment do you use?

I have a wide range of equipment:

2.5kg and 5kg dumbells

6kg, 8kg and 12kg kettlebells

Boxing gloves

Resistance bands

KO8 trainer


Plus cones, skipping rope, yoga matts, footballs. I only use the best quality equipment - it need to be hard wearing and fit for purpose.

Depending upon what you're looking for (cardio, endurance, strength, conditioning) will depend on the kit I bring with me.

What happens if there are adverse weather conditions?

The only weather conditions I don't train in are ice/snow. Most other weather conditions I try to make sure that there is some cover to protect you from the worst of the weather.

How many sessions a week do you recommend?

If you are looking to lose weight/tone up, then I'd recommend 3-4 sessions a week. These don't necessarily need to be with me, however, you need to schedule in time to complete these workouts. If you aren't going to do the workouts yourself, then I'd recommend a minimum of 2-3 sessions a week with me.

Is exercise enough to help me lose weight?

In short, for most people, no. Exercise helps you lose weight, however, you also need to look after your diet, too. This doesn't mean eating less, it means eating well. The rough rule of thumb is if you exercise, then your body will need carbs. If you don't exercise, then stick to a protein and fat diet on that day. I also recommend using an app like my fitness pal to track calories. If your caloriesin are more than your calories out, you will not lose weight.

How do you take payment?

I send out weekly invoices and accept bank transfers.
