Achieve better and quicker results with a Personal Trainer

Research suggests individuals using a personal trainer will achieve significantly better and quicker results than people training on their own. So the quick answer is if you’re training to achieve any goal; be it weight lossfitnessinjury rehab or anything else you are more likely to get the result you want with the expertise of a trainer.

Personal Training

Making the decision to recruit a personal trainer is not only a commitment to achieving your goals, it is a commitment to yourself and living a healthier lifestyle. Activ8 personal trainers are dedicated to you and your goals, and will have a significant impact on your training routine. Their expertise and importantly, motivation, will ensure you achieve your goals and start to see the results you desire.

We all have different goals and respond differently to certain types of exercise. Our personal trainers are all level 3 qualified and their skills and knowledge will tailor a plan specifically for you. Whether you are focused on weight loss, building muscle, increasing strength, working towards a specific event such as a marathon or triathlon – or even a wedding day! We can help you get there.

Like you, our trainers all have their own individual style and area of interest so it is important that you work with someone who is flexible in their approach and adaptable to your specific needs. Many of our trainers undergo additional specialist training to expand their skillset and use their additional knowledge to help you achieve your goals. Education plays a huge part in personal training to ensure that you can maintain your achievements long into the future.

You will look at correct form and posture to achieve optimum results as well as diet and nutrition advice – it all starts in the kitchen! You will also learn how your body reacts to specific training methods and how to aid recovery – rest days are just as important as training days. We’ve highlighted some of our most popular bundles below but we can tailor a package to suit your desired outcome, budget or schedule. Take a look to see which option fits best for you, or enquire now and we will get back to you right away.

There’s also a selection of FAQ’s at the bottom of this page to help answer any questions you might have.

What’s Your Goal?

Health and fitness is not all about skinny waists and muscles, it is about making a commitment to the necessary changes that will help you stick to your new lifestyle and this involves diet, nutrition, sleep cycles, recovery and everything else it takes to educate yourself with the know how to get the most of your training.

So, what’s your motivation?

Muscle Strength & Size

You can learn a great deal from only a handful of sessions with a knowledgeable personal trainer, and starting with a session or two a week, coupled with your own sessions, is the ideal starting place to begin seeing results. Knowing when to train, how to train and at what intensity, is the first step to understanding what it takes to achieve your goals.

Weight Loss, Slim & Tone

There are a number of options if weight loss is your focus. One option you may want to consider is enrolling onto our weight loss programme, before going on to recruit a personal trainer to make sure your weight loss is sustained.

Health & Wellbeing

Starting out with a personal trainer who can suggest a suitable training plan that incorporates a number of activities that would be beneficial. This could include, depending on your individual needs, high or low intensity fitness classes or swimming and aqua based sessions.

Energy & Performance

Choosing a personal training package that includes a higher frequency of sessions to begin with so you can learn and adapt to your new plan with plenty of guidance and support. We also recommend increasing the frequency in the build up nearer the event you are training for to make sure you are as ready as you can be.

What are the benefits of a Personal Trainer?

There are several benefits of personal training. These include:

  • Learning the correct form: A Personal Trainer will guide you on how to perform exercises correctly and safely, making sure you target the right muscles while preventing injuries. Even the most experienced gym goers can struggle with form!
  • Knowledge and experience: Personal Trainers have a huge wealth of knowledge on everything from the human anatomy to the best training methods. Working with a PT means you benefit from this information without needing to do the research yourself, or having to trial methods which are not effective.
  • Pushing your limits: Personal Trainers are passionate and supportive, but they’ll also challenge and motivate you to push yourself further. It is much easier to break through a plateau or smash personal bests when working with a PT!
  • Being held accountable: Sometimes, the toughest battle is getting to the gym. Having a Personal Trainer keeps you accountable on your health and fitness journey, so you can reach your goals quicker.
  • Getting a bespoke training programme: There is no one size fits all when it comes to fitness. Personal Trainers will create a tailored training programme to suit your needs, abilities and goals, making sure it is challenging but achievable.
