Services

Personal Trainer - a comprehensive approach

£20 /hour (individuals) - £35 /hour (couples)

I specialise in providing a holistic Personal Training (PT) experience, which not only focuses on the physical fitness & appearance of your body, but also considers the mind, nutritional requirements, and of course, what you want to achieve from me, your Personal Trainer.

Also available is a two session PT taster experience. Consisting of two x 1 hour sessions, it allows you to sample the experience before deciding to commit for a longer period. It's also a great gift idea too.

Nutritional Advisor - feed your body & mind

£10 /hour (individuals) - £17 /hour (couples)

The essential nutritional guidance I provide will help to complement your daily physical efforts, ensuring both your body and mind are appropriately catered for. Part of the process will include keeping a diary and adapting your eating habits where required.

My nuritional advise is based solely upon eating real food: it is not a 'diet' or other dietary fad. So if you are ready to walk away from the status quo, and improve your health and well-being through the food you eat, I look forward to hearing from you.

GP Referral Exercise Programme - for specific health concerns

£20 /hour

Your GP or other health professional may refer you to a subsidised Exercise Referral scheme to complement your prescribed treatment plan. These schemes are popular, and provide a service delivered in mixed gender groups of up to forty people, with one or perhaps two instructors per group.

I provide a private alternative. Health conditions such as high and low blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, together with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, are just some of the conditions I am able to help you with.
So, if you prefer a personal approach, and value your privacy, please contact me for a referral form. Then ask your GP to assess your suitability to the scheme, and ask them to complete the referral form (please return the completed referral form to myself).

Your Initial Consultation

£ free

Once you have expressed an interest in either my Personal Training or GP Exercise Referral Programme services, I will ask you to complete a questionnaire and to attend a private obligation-free consultation. This consultation is free of charge, and will help to identify your current health & fitness levels, as well as provide the basis upon which I will formulate a health & fitness programme specifically for you. The consultation will also provide you with the ideal opportunity to ask any queries you may have.

If you have any underlying health issues, or are pregnant or postpartum, then before embarking on any new fitness activity or programme, I advise you to seek medical advice from your GP/Qualified Health Care Professional to ensure it is safe for you to do so.
To participate in the GP Exercise Referral programme, you must be referred to me by your GP or Health Care Professional. Please contact me for the referral form; you will need to present this to your GP for completion.

This is a great High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) type group workout on spin bikes, and accompanied with some great music, all in the company of like-minded people. Directed by myself, your 30 minute session will take you through the steepest climbs to the fastest descents.

Testimonials

Rehabilitation

After sustaining several injuries I sought Al's help and undertook his guidance and coaching on a one-to-one basis. I was given rehabilitation exercises and advice based on my specific needs.

Although Al's focus is getting the body back to achieving its potential, he considers all health factors and will make other suggestions where needed.'

-  Jodie

Conscientious

Al is a really lovely person, who motivates and encourages. He is conscientious, approachable and has an eye for detail.

An excellent training instructor with a positive personality who ‘actively’ listens, as opposed to ‘making assumptions’. Al ensures all exercises are performed safely and as accurately as possible. Very knowledgeable'.

-   Maureen

Encouragement

Getting back into shape post children is always hard, I finally plucked up the courage to attend a spin class. Walking though the door to a smile and a cheery hello from Al made all the difference, a warm and hearty greeting!!

Love the spin class every week and the 1-2-1 sessions are brilliant - full of encouragement and clear information and instruction, I cannot recommend Al enough!'
