Your Questions, My Answers
Where does the training take place?
Most of my clients are directly from Harrogate or the surrounding areas. We can train at your home or at several gyms in the town including Harrogate Squash Club, Nuffield Health Centre (Client must be a member here!) or at my own gym at the Fitness Suite at St. John Fisher's High School. That does not mean, however, that I do not sometimes take longer trips to train people in their own town! Just contact me. I am sure we will find a solution!
Am I a professional trainer?
Absolutely Yes. I am fully qualified Advanced Level 3 Personal Trainer and Gym Instructor. I am registered with REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals). Check out the “About Me“ page for more details on my biography.
Why should I spend money on a personal trainer? I can do it by myself.
Of course you can train alone. But I believe that my main purpose is to motivate you and develop a customised training programme with you that corresponds to your requirements, problems and goals. It's my job to make each session as varied as possible, keeping your body guessing and your mind stimulated so you never get bored. I will mainly be your advisor. I can detect when your posture is not quite right or when you are putting too much pressure on the wrong muscles.
How often do I have to or can I train with you?
That is entirely up to you and depends on the amount of time you have and how committed you are. Usually, I train with my clients once or twice a week some clients as many as three times!
Are you Insured and First Aid Qualified?
Yes....and YES!! I currently have Public Liability Insurance which is something ALL trainers should have....If your instructor doesn't, DO NOT use him/her!!
My First Aid Certificate is complete and up to date.
