Although all our personal trainers are REPS level 3 and qualified to train special populations (diabetics,elderly,obese,arthritic) we are always looking to expand our knowledge and think of new ways to torture our poor clients.
To this end three of our personal trainers will be getting together over the course of the next few weeks to swap ideas and exchange new personal training techniques, and we will be looking to use each other’s specialities too.
Annie Sealy (who is our fab personal trainer for the Windsor, Maidenhead, Ascot and Bracknell areas has a new type of cargo netting that attaches to doors and provides excellent instability for an interesting upper body workout, brilliant for stabilising the joints and increasing functional strength and joint stability. I am (Adam Atkinson, I am our head personal trainer covering the Ascot, Windsor, Bracknell, Sunninghill and Sunningdale areas) now a kettle-bell qualified instructor, so I will be trying to teach the troops about the posterior kinetic chain and how kettle-bell training can make you super toned whilst also providing an elevated heart rate for extended periods of time while doing resistance training. Meanwhile Stephen Hitchcock, who is our trainer for the Egham, Staines, Richmond and Virginia Water areas is a boxercise instructor and also a proper runner (is a member of a running club and everything!) so he will be showing us how it’s done.
Although we all have extensive experience in the home personal training field, you can always learn new things form other trainers, and it’s really useful in keeping all our trainers and clients interested in the sessions while keeping them varied and fun. All our profiles are on the site, have a look at the meet the trainers page, where there are also some hopefully flattering photos of us too!
