Meet Amy, the founder and Head Warrior at The Warrior Programme®:

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!

Amy is the trainer for you if you want to:

Feel more confident

Learn to love your body

Feel strong

 

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:

 

Meet Ben - he specialises in helping your body meet the demands of your life – be that sitting at your desk without aches and pains in your shoulders or lower back, or to achieve a fitness goal, such as running a marathon or climbing a mountain. He’s spent the past three years training soldiers (whose bodies undergo a huge amount) and he is great at making fitness fun and effective – you can expect a friendly face, a great laugh and even some card games!

What got you into fitness?

It was when I first put my application into the army. I was struggling to even run a mile and I knew this had to change.

Through committing to a plan and making changes to my lifestyle, I am now able to run that same mile in 4:37 and to lift just over twice my body weight.

What’s your greatest success story with a client?

In the army, we have a test called the PFA – it’s a mile and a half run – which we have to be able to do. I took a client, who had never passed this test, and helped him achieve a pass. I helped him learn how to eat and exercise properly, which he hadn’t been able to do before. This was such a proud moment for me because not only did I give him the tools to perform better in the army, but there were huge changes in his self-confidence.

Why do you love helping people get stronger, fitter and more confident?

The body is a wonderful thing, and through my role as a coach, in helping people achieve their fitness goals, I help them believe this too. The body is so much more capable than people realise and when they recognise this, it has a huge impact on their life outside the gym. You start to see people become more positive and for me, that is the best feeling. We are here to help people improve as individuals, including their mindset.

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 we are very different. I see your journey with me as a joint project - we work together to build your new self into your existing lifestyle. We 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, our 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 we won't set you lengthy and elaborate homework. If you hate cooking, or don't have time to do it, we won't ask you to cook - we'll find a way for you to eat that is healthy and very convenient. Working with us 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 our 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 our 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 we follow a tried and tested formula (both by ourselves and our 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.
