'I work so hard, I just don't have time for myself. I know this is impacting my health and I want to do something about it, but I don't know where to start. I don't know how to find the time or motivation, but I want to be stronger and fitter.'

Does that resonate at all with you?

Here's some more about Amy:

At school, I was sporty but but clever at the same time, so a very difficult one to pigeon hole! I've definitely got some genetic blessings - I'm strong and fast - but definitely not genetically skinny!

At university, I stopped exercising, ate a load of crap and stopped exercising. I lived in a horrible flat share, wasn't very happy and kind of let myself go. I didn't really realise, until one day I did, and decided it had to come off and fast. Cycling and big dietary changes were key and I lost the excess weight in 3 months and it's never come back. (*Results vary between clients and are dependent on many factors*)

For 8 years, I spent  12+ hours per day sat at my desk or a wheel. I thought it would be fine, it's only sitting down, I'm young, it won't matter. However, at just 24, the sedentary lifestyle started to get to me. I couldn't shift a few pounds around my middle, my stress levels were through the roof, I was bored, frustrated and always achy and tired. 

I'd been going to the gym regularly for a couple of years, but I found that my work was interfering with my motivation levels to go. I'd get home around 6, crash on the sofa and be too tired to cook or go to the gym. Not ideal. 

So, I started looking for a way to make it work for me.  I didn't want to spend every hour of my life in the gym, or eat chicken and broccoli every meal for the rest of my life! But, I didn't want to feel like this anymore - I wanted to feel fit, strong, full of energy, less stressed and to get rid of the aches and tiredness. 

Here's where I can help you - I've done the leg work! I've tried cycling 150+ miles per week, poledancing, kickboxing, swimming, heavy weight lifting, a bodybuilder diet, high fat & low carbs, low fat & high carbs and combined all of what I've learned into The Warrior Programme. The best of what's out there from one business owner and former corporate employee to another. 

I make it easy for you - you don't have to think, you just do, which is in itself a break away from work!

If you intend to work hard and make a success of yourself for the next 10,20, 30+ years, you need to make it work for you and your life:

 

What are the common concerns your clients have about working with a personal trainer?

A lot of clients have the pre-conceptions that personal trainers all shout, make you do burpees until you pass out and force you to eat chicken and spinach for every meal for the rest of your life. There are some trainers that take that approach, but mine is very different. I see your journey with me as a joint project - we work together to build your new self into your existing lifestyle. I don't expect you to never eat a takeaway again or count your calories. Instead, we talk about your likes and dislikes and ensure that the changes you make are sustainable - you can keep them up for life. 

I'm afraid working with you will take up a lot of time - will it?

I'm aware that you're a very busy person with limited free time and a changeable schedule. To help with this, my gym is in BS1, very close to the major corporate areas of Bristol, sessions with me last 60 minutes (we get a lot done in them!) and I won't set you lengthy and elaborate homework. If you hate cooking, or don't have time to do it, I won't ask you to cook - we'll find a way for you to eat that is healthy and very convenient. Working with me will take up a lot less time than trying to get these results yourself. 

I think I should go away and get a bit fitter first - am I right?

A lot of my clients have been worried about this, so rest assured that your concern is very normal! As you're already really busy, we want to get this sorted as quickly as possible, right? The less fit you are when we starting working together, the quicker you tend to see progress. 

I'm worried that working with you will be really expensive, I'm not sure I can afford it

It's really normal to be concerned about taking on an extra expense, so please don't worry. Many of my clients have had this concern, but when they see how quickly they get the results they've wanted for a long time and start seeing the dividends it pays everyday, they no longer worry. You've worked really hard to get where you are - you deserve to put something back in yourself. Think of it as a short term investment, that will pay life-long dividends. You'll never need to waste money on a diet or unused gym membership again!

What if I'm different and it doesn't work for me?

Although I follow a tried and tested formula (both by myself and my clients), every programme is bespoke to you and your goals. A lot of clients have worried about this - nothing has worked for them before - but then they are happily proven wrong.
