PERSONAL TRAINING

I offer 1-to-1 and group sessions. All personal training is exactly that, personal. My approach is to look at the body as a whole taking into account lifestyle, experience, injuries and posture before giving you the ideal programme to get you in shape.

Exercise

All my programmes are tailor-made just for you and take into account your goals and exercise experience. I use a mixture of resistance training and high intensity exercises to burn fat and build muscle, all of this can be done in the gym, outside or at home as long as you have the space.

Nutrition

I believe that the only way to get the best out of your training programme is for you be following a healthy diet! All my diet plans are individual and take into account dietary requirements and allergies.

Weight Loss

Weight loss can be a difficult journey and many people are unsure where to start. The first thing to understand is that it takes time and consistency to lose weight. ‘Quick fix’ diets may only work in the short-term and can potentially be very damaging to your health. Realistically you should be aiming for around 1-2 lbs a week of weight loss (depending on your starting weight) and this should be achieved through a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise.

How do I work?

I use a mixture of resistance training and high intensity intervals to help you burn fat and build muscle effectively at the same time. Muscle is what gives the body its shape and different people will have different levels of muscle-building ability depending on sex, age and body type. Having a healthy diet is key, which is why I will lay out healthy eating guidelines for you before giving you a tailored diet plan to follow to help you reach your weight loss goal.

PRICING

I have a range of monthly and one-off packages to choose from to meet your budget and fitness goals.

Meet Alex

I’ve been a personal trainer since May 2012. I have always been interested in fitness and mainly kept that to playing football and going to the gym throughout school and university. Whilst studying at university my course had a large focus on coaching and instructing, and eventually I managed to combine my interests of delivering sessions with my love of exercise and fitness to become a qualified personal trainer. I’m very passionate about what I do and try my hardest to get all my clients fantastic results.

My approach is based around building a programme that YOU can get along with. I appreciate that no two people are the same, therefore no two programmes I design would be the same either. With me you will get a bespoke training and nutrition plan that will get you where you want to be, whether that is getting in shape for a holiday or wedding, recovering from an injury or training for a 10k. My qualifications include:

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer (CYQ)
  • BSc (Hons) Sport Development with Coaching (Sheffield Hallam University)
  • Outdoor Personal Training (CYQ)

  • Postural Assessment and Corrective Exercise (Premier Training)
  • Exercise Referral (CYQ)
  • Group Indoor Cycling (CYQ)

Testimonials

before-after

”Having over-indulged at Christmas, we realised that our big day was looming so we booked a trial session with Alex and knew straight away that we’d done the right thing – and, just in time!

We trained twice a week with Alex and our whole attitude to exercise and nutrition changed. We both dropped 2 sizes and our friends and family couldn’t believe the difference!

On our wedding day, we both felt a million dollars – our objective had been achieved! We can’t recommend Alex highly enough – whatever your goals, Alex will listen and identify how to reach them. He varies the sessions so they are focused, challenging and fun, and keeps track of your progress.
Alex is professional, supportive and motivational – everyone needs an Alex in their life!”

Caroline and Tim Wild

I have gained fitness and stamina my body looks better than it has done for quite a few years! I have lost a dress size and some inches and for the first time since I had four children, I had the body confidence to wear a bikini on holiday this year. The weekly sessions keep me motivated and moving forward with new goals. Thanks again Alex”

“When the realisation hit that I had gradually put on 3 stone in 4 years without even noticing, I knew I had to look for local PTs in the hertfordshire area. I needed someone to help me change the habits and routines I had slowly formed over the years and to change how I approached exercise.

Right from the first introduction session I felt that Alex was focused on helping me acheive what I wanted . As someone who had never been to a gym before, Alex was great at helping me overcome the initial intimidation and I quickly found myself upping our schedule to three times a week before work and actually enjoying it.

The sessions were always the right level of challenging and I always felt that Alex introduced new routines/workouts at the right time for me. I now look forward to the weekly weigh-ins, tracking my progress even after periods of indulgence (like christmas) becuase I know now I have the motivation, desire and ability to keep improving and setting better goals.”

”I signed up with Alex whilst working in Hertfordshire and highly recommend his services. As well as meticulous detail in regards to diet and the workout sessions I also appreciated the advice in regards to other exercise done outside of our sessions.

The prominent reason I continued with Alex is the benefits and difference noticed as a result of the workouts. I liked the variety and was definitely made to work during the sessions. As well as these being in the gym this also included outdoor sessions and the plan was structured in regards to what muscle groups to target. Unfortunately I had to stop due to my work in Hertfordshire coming to an end and not being local. But if I end up working in the area again I will sign up again with Alex no hesitation.”
