Personal training will be unavailable on a temporary basis across our fitness clubs to allow the Activ8 team to focus on offering you support across the gym floor as well as undertaking regular and enhanced cleaning.

Making the decision to recruit a personal trainer is not only a commitment to achieving your goals, it is a commitment to yourself and the lifestyle you want to lead. A personal trainer is 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?

You’ve found yourself on this page because like many others, you are driven to be the best ‘you’ that you can be, and how that looks to one person can be worlds apart from the next. No two people are the same and neither are their reasons for wanting to change their life for the better, but one thing we all have in common, is that we all aspire to lead a happy, healthy lifestyle.

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?

It’s not as easy as it seems!

If you’ve found yourself here, chances are you’ve been training on your own or with friends previously and are yet to see the results you desire. Like many, you’ve probably researched endless programmes on the internet and have a good understanding of the core principles to increase muscle size and strength, so why such disappointing results?

There are so many factors to consider when you start training in such a way, that it can be confusing to make sense of all the information out there. Should I take supplements? What is time under tension? Should I lift more weight for fewer reps or less weight for more reps? Or should I do a mix of both? With so many unanswered questions it’s no wonder it can be difficult to focus your efforts in the right way. What’s more, you might already be packing some seriously lean muscle but are struggling to get your diet on track to notice the results!

We recommend . . .

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.

What have you  got to lose?

‘Weight loss’ has to be one of the most searched for terms on Google, as we all want to find the quickest and easiest way to lose weight. The trouble is, a ‘quick fix’ is only going to provide short term results and is not the solution to achieving the state of mind to keep the weight off for good. Consistency is the key and finding the balance between enjoying life and maintaining your preferred weight is the best way to find success. This is where a motivating and inspiring personal trainer can help you to shift the weight through a combination of diet and exercise tailored to you.

We Recommend . . .

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

Change your mindset to raise your wellbeing

A personal trainer can often be a great way to inject some motivation into your life and help you to start out on the right path to enjoying the most out of life. Often those who suffer from particular health conditions such as arthritis or obesity, or experience social anxiety and confidence issues will often work with a personal trainer to not only to improve their fitness, but also to change their mindset and build confidence to enhance their overall wellbeing.

We recommend . . .

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.

Reach you peak performance

A personal trainer is equipped with the skills and knowledge to adapt your training style to suit any goal. You may already have a good level of fitness but want to push yourself even further for a specific event such as a marathon or triathlon. This could involve training in a way you may not have experienced before to maximise your results and will usually require a few changes to your diet and nutrition.

We recommend . . .

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.

Bundles to suit every budget

Choosing to work with a personal trainer option doesn’t need to break the bank and at Activ8 we are happy to offer affordable personal training with some of the area’s most highly skilled and knowledgeable professionals. Your own motivations and timescales will play a big part in determining the frequency and duration of each session and the most suitable options to enable you to achieve your goals.

Total weight loss: 5 1/2 st

Steph's Weight Loss Success

"I was referred by my Doctor onto Activ8’s Lite4Life course (a 10 week course specifically for people who are overweight and want to lose weight through a change in their diet and physical activity levels). I found the course really interesting, motivating and challenging and it ‘changed my life’. When I finished the course I decided to join Activ8 as a monthly member to keep up my new healthy lifestyle.

I have completely changed my eating habits and now I have lost the weight I am much more confident and I can now wear clothes I would never wear before!"

Total weight loss: 5 st

Jamie's Success Story

"I started my diet/training in September 2015, weighing 18st 3lbs and my target was to lose 5st. I wanted to improve my fitness for football and I felt uncomfortable in the way I looked. Activ8 is really good, it has very helpful employees who always try and help me when training. John was a big help with my diet and exercise plan. If I didn’t go on the course, I think I would still be struggling to lose weight.

I lost my 5st target weight and I was very happy with my progress. Maintaining it will be hard but I am determined to stick to my current weight. I am still training 4/5 times a week in the gyms and pools and I’ve also applied for a few charity runs to keep me motivated."
