What to expect
We will gather a wealth of information that will enable us to devise a programme designed specifically for you. This is a thorough process including:
Body composition analysis
This provides us with the details we need to optimise your time and see the changes you’re looking for, enabling you to achieve the short and long term goals we set for you and to incorporate fitness into your lifestyle. Even if your requirements are the same as your neighbour there will be a number of factors that mean that your programme will never be identical to another. No two clients are the same.
We will revisit these tests at various periods to monitor progress and make adaptations where necessary.
All our trainers are qualified to REPs Level 3 and fully insured with many years of experience working with clients who have varied, unique requirements. Here are some of the many reasons people choose to train with us:
Motivation - One of the main reasons people benefit from working with a personal trainer is that alone they lose motivation to stick with a consistent exercise programme. We provide structure and accountability to help you develop a healthier lifestyle.
Efficiency - We help you focus on results and reduce wasted time by providing efficient results oriented workouts. Time is precious and we will produce a tailored plan to achieve maximum results in minimum time.
New to exercise – For an absolute beginner a personal trainer is the ultimate fitness coach. We will introduce a simple, effective routine from which you will build a good base of fitness. Developing the exercises through regular progression you will find that in no time you will build the confidence and knowledge to decide the direction that is right for you.
Break through plateaus - As an experienced exerciser you may find that you have become stuck in the same routine and need to break out of a rut. A Hillcliff personal trainer is the perfect solution. By rebuilding motivation and creating challenging and dynamic programmes we will take you to the next level.
Specific goals - For those with specific training goals (running a marathon, for example), chronic health conditions or injuries and pregnant women requiring expert guidance. Working directly with you and with your health care provider we plan a safe, effective programme based on sound scientific knowledge (and not the latest fads) that considers specific needs and enables you to reach your unique health or sporting goals.
Work out safely – We watch your form, monitoring rates of exertion and providing objective feedback about your limits and strengths. Most of us tend to ignore some of the subtle signals our body provides. We either push through pain or give up too soon. It’s our job to push when required and slow you down as necessary.
Lose weight – The primary reason people hire personal trainers is to lose weight and get into shape – and that’s because it works! If you are determined to lose the fat and tone your muscle we will keep you on track and realise that goal. We have qualified sports nutrition and weight management consultants who can provide general knowledge on good eating habits, or as an additional service, include fully supported nutritional strategies, whether it be for weight loss or race day.
At Hillcliff Personal Training we will never expect our clients to do an exercise that we haven’t personally tried and tested. We pride ourselves in our professionalism. We love what we do and it shows! Specialist qualifications held by our trainers include Level 3 diplomas in Sports Conditioning, Corrective Exercise, Exercise Referral for medical conditions, Pre and Post Natal Exercise Prescription and Self-Myofascial Release.
