Philosophy

Our approach to personal training is client-centred.  Your fitness, health, personal and lifestyle goals are our focus.  We customise your training to your needs.

We believe our programs are more beneficial (for you) if we connect exercise to education about nutrition, health, lifestyle and mind-sets.

We do not offer ‘set-and-forget’ or ‘off-the-shelf’ fitness programs;  we design programs to meet your needs.  We believe it is important to monitor your progress, give feedback on your progress, adapt your program as your abilities change, encourage you, motivate you, and stay in contact with you.

We enjoy our work, and are committed to continuously improving our own professional knowledge.

If you would like more specific information about our personal training philosophy, Contact Us.
