First of all we offer you a FREE CONSULTATION which involves a no pressure, no obligation chat. If you’re happy with how things are going then we can use this time to fill out the necessary paperwork. This is to get an idea of your fitness, diet & medical history. During this time we will also start some fitness tests which will be repeated every 4-6 weeks and are completely free with blocks of sessions. The tests include –

  • Blood Pressure
  • Weight
  • Body Composition Analysis – (Body fat %, Skeletal muscle %)
  • Body measurements – (Hip, Waist, Chest, Arms)

If after the consultation you want to try a 30 minute taster session we will throw this in for free as well.

A typical Personal Training session lasts 45 – 60 minutes & includes work to strengthen & condition the body whilst at the same time reducing body fat (usually mistaken for wanting to lose body weight). Combined with posture correction & injury prevention, these are the main reasons why personal trainers are hired.

There is always some kind of cardiovascular or aerobic training involved. This is what burns the fat & gets the heart healthier. This will involve exercises such as –

  • Walking or Running – (Depending on where you’re fitness levels are at)
  • Boxing training – A fantastic way to give the body an all over workout
  • Interval Training – (Fast sprints running, cycling or boxing interspersed with slower periods. This is great for conditioning the body)
  • Cycling
  • Weight based Cardio

After this we will work on Core Stability & Core Strength. The core, or trunk is the body’s engine and these are the muscles that give us good posture & are crucial for day to day activities. Core Stability is about stabilising the many trunk muscles of the abdomen & spine. Over time this will lead to strength work. Core work involves getting used to the gym balls and medicine balls which can be daunting at first but are great fun!

There will also be some weight based exercises involved to improve muscular strength & conditioning. This will involve a structured programme that is customised to your goals. There is a misconception with ladies that weight training will build huge muscles. Ladies lack the vital ingredient, which is testosterone, to build muscle mass. It’s always nice however to have that nice toned body & using smaller weights is the route to achieving this. If you’re interested in building bigger muscles then please visit our strength & conditioning page.

At Matt Holland Fitness we train a great variety of clients, from personal training people who want general fitness or strength training right through to clients with various ailments & barriers towards fitness. Our clients have very different goals such as fat loss, strength & muscle gain, posture correction & even using exercise as pain relief. We pride ourselves on our empathetic approach towards our clients and treat everyone with the same respect as the next person.
