Stuart's Own Journey
At the age of 14, Stuart was overweight at 14 stone with little-to-no muscle, which was from a very non-active lifestyle which included spending time a lot of time playing computer games. Over the following three years he lost 5 stone by increasing his physical activity. However, by 17 years old Stuart became obsessed with exercising and he was training 3 hours every night. This lead to Stuart to be well underweight for his height at 8 stone.
Stuart has since then had an overhaul of his lifestyle including his diet and physical activity balance to maintain his weight at 11.5 stone which is ideal for his height.
Stuart understands how it feels to be be overweight and underweight and the battles that both sides have emotionally and physically.
Stuart has also dislocated both of his shoulders at different times in the past and so he understands what is involved in rehabilitation and the importance of working alongside healthcare professionals to regain strength and fitness. He is aware of the necessity to strengthen the weakened areas and build muscle at a sensible pace to reduce the chance of further injuries.
1-1 Personal Training Sessions
Stuart caters 1-1 training to his clients needs and their goals. Stuart initially carries out a consultation to find out the clients requirements and wishes. He also carries out a free health check which includes taking your blood pressure and measurements. From this information collected Stuart will design a bespoke program and will give you all the tools to help you to reach your target.
Stuart aims to make the sessions as fun as possible whilst you are working hard and making the most of your workout.
2-1 Personal Training
2-1 sessions can be very popular for couples and friends. Training with a friend can make the sessions less daunting. Stuart has seen how natural competitiveness within us can help spur each other on.
The MMA fitness part of the sessions can be thoroughly enjoyed by couples especially when couples have remembered that one sarcastic comment from the other and have found that by expressing their feelings allow for extra power when hitting the pads.
Sessions are always aimed at keeping fit and having fun at the same time
