One-one-one Personal Training in your own home
At Diets Don’t Work we specialise in one-on-one Personal Training. Unlike traditional gym-based training, our trainers come to your home, bringing equipment with them. We are experts in designing fun but challenging sessions in the home environment and can work even in a small space like a kitchen or lounge. We also like to have sessions outdoors, whether in your garden or in parks and green spaces local to you.
Proven techniques to help sort out your eating – realistic sustainable change
With weight loss a priority for many people all block bookings (6 or more sessions) include not just detailed analysis of your eating but the implementation of strategies to help you lose weight in the real world. From how to deal with cravings, dining out strategies, how to drink smart, have healthier takeaways to improving your shopping habits. We help clients to choose foods that will keep their indulgent side happy without breaking the calorie bank; we teach them to take windows of opportunity to be diligent while recognising that sometimes that’s just not possible. Over 500 blog posts cover all the topics and strategies you need to succeed.
Smart & time efficient homework
Personal training with us includes homework to do one your own. One or two sessions a week with us will make you fitter, slimmer and stronger, but a bit extra will make your progress even faster. Using technology like interval timers and smart watches our homework programs are tailored to suit your specific lifestyle and time constraints. Sometimes short frequent bouts of intense exercise fit into your life better than longer less frequent sessions. Perhaps it’s the other way around. Together we will figure it out.
Home training = unique lifestyle insight
Unlike typical gym based “turn up – train – leave” sessions our home training gives us first-hand insight into your lifestyle, work pressures, family routines and eating habits. It allows a more personal relationship to form between you and your trainer so they can more easily remove barriers to success and help you make achievable lasting changes. It also has the additional benefits of not needing a gym membership and not wasting time in traffic.
Highly Qualified trainers
We choose our trainers not just because they are highly qualified but because they are also well-rounded professionals with a sense of humour, real-life experience and a passion for what they do. We are all advanced trainers qualified to REPS level 3 or equivalent. This means we are qualified to train special populations like diabetics, the elderly, the very overweight and other conditions that may make fitness and weight loss a challenge. Most of us have also trained/competed to a high level and can provide sports specific training to get you that elusive PB.
Training outdoors makes you feel better and lose weight faster!
As often as possible we run the sessions outdoors: study after study has shown that exercising outdoors is much more effective than traditional gym style methods. Outdoors training leads to greater fitness gains, feelings of well-being, sustained weight loss and lower temperatures mean that you burn more calories.
Book a first consultation – free
What Now? The first step is to book a consultation. There is no charge, and it’s a chance to meet your prospective trainer. In the consultation we will go through a health screening, lifestyle assessment, goal setting and look at where you are now and how you got there. Together we can then set out where you would like to be and how soon you would like to get there.
If you would like to know more about what to expect in the sessions, what sort of equipment we will be using or have any other questions, have a look at our FAQ section. You can of course also call or email us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions that you have.
