I started training with Phil in September 2009 after a summer of travelling that left me unable to fit into half my clothes. Since then I have lost 14kg and am now training for a 10k, something that seemed impossible only a few months ago. Phil is so supportive and encouraging, and it’s purely thanks to his help that I have made this much progress. My target is to lose another 15kg and I have no doubt that with Phil’s support I will achieve my goal.
I first hired Phil when he was a trainer at LA Fitness, initially to devise a general fitness programme for me along with a specialised programme to help with a knee injury which was going to result in surgery.Through Phil’s own research and developing a programme specific to my needs I no longer need surgery and my overall fitness levels have increased significantly. When Phil moved to Green’s I had no hesitation in following him to this gym. He is motivational, great to work with and makes a workout at the gym fun.
Before I started training with Phil I was suffering from a plateau and I felt like I wasn’t seeing much benefit from my regular exercise routine. I’d also tried a huge list of fad diets and failed with all of them. Phil has jump started me, and helped me refocus my goals.
There is so much confusion out there about weight management, mainly because the market is saturated with ineffective quick-fix remedies that simply don’t work. We will make it very easy, explaining the truth about how the control of sugar intake in your diet will change your life!
Our professional and skilful personal trainers are there to facilitate and support clients, guide them through necessary changes so the client becomes successful at managing their weight. This is done with nutritional coaching, work out programs, life style changes and maintenance programming.
Edinburgh personal trainers view program writing as a science and an art. They will go through a process of understanding the client’s needs, wants and lifestyle to negotiate an agreed program. This enables the Edinburgh personal trainer to be more effective at shaping the behaviour of the client forever. Edinburgh personal trainers will confidently write programs ranging from basic to advanced, including specific sports (football, rugby, tennis, etc), and also cover specific groups (elderly, obesity, children, heart problems, arthritis, pregnancy).
Nutrition is about what your body needs to ingest in order to stay healthy in light of the demands you place upon it. Basically that mean food and drink. The food we eat contains macro and micro nutrients. These are the components of our diet that we need in a variety of amounts every day.
