 My goal when joining the gym was to get back into shape. I was completely out of condition and needed to sort myself out. I felt bad about myself. I was losing self esteem. It was important to me to regain confidence in myself. And hopefully, to live longer. After initially working under my own steam, mainly doing just cardiovascular exercise. I wanted to gain the confidence to enter the weight zone. I realised to do this properly and without seriously injuring myself, I would need the help to a professional. My first experience was better than expected. I surprised myself how quickly I adapted. I would advise anyone who seriously wants to improve their health, wellbeing and fitness to go for it.  Fac ut vivas. (Get a life).

My goal when I joined the gym was to lose weight and tone up. I was also hoping to gain some muscle. This was important to me because, I had developed a medical condition that the doctors blamed on my excessive weight.  My goal was weight loss and to get fitter. This goal was important to me because I was very over weight and unhealthy! I was concerned for my general health.  I signed up with rick because I didn’t know how and what was the best way to achieve my goals! My first session I was very nervous and anxious about but as soon as I got there Rick made me feel comfortable and at ease! After that I really enjoyed it and couldn’t wait for the next session  If someone was considering joining I would recommend that they did! They defiantly would get a lot off the sessions. Rick is the best in his field (my opinion obviously) he is very knowledgeable and always happy to help! Nothing is too big or too small!

My goal when joining the gym was to regain fitness so that I could enjoy sport more.  I also wanted to lose weight so that my BMI was within a normal range as well as regain some body tone back. It was important to me because, I’ve always enjoyed sport but the effort was becoming more laboured and my capability was reducing.  Exercise is important to me for relaxation and mental health as well as being able to enjoy the great outdoors with enhanced fitness performance.  At home, being fitter helps me address a better work life balance and handle the physicality of day to day life with greater ease.  I had a number of competitive sports events in the calendar and I wanted to be body fit. I signed up to Personal Training as I wasn’t achieving my fitness goals effectively.  Whilst I was getting slightly fitter, my weight and body tone didn’t change.  My diet regime was leaving me hungry and my performance gains in sport were marginal.  I needed expertise from a Personal Trainer to review my diet, lifestyle and training plan and make effective changes. My first training session involved a thorough fitness and strength assessment which set the benchmark for improvement and structured upcoming training plans.  Riccardo was able to provide me with a lot of knowledge and experience on the strength training approach and how this would work towards achieving my goals.  I was provided the first of many practical diet and lifestyle changes.

My goal when I joined the gym was to improve my general fitness tone up and lose weight. My goal important to me because, I needed to improve my fitness levels. I sign up for Group Training because I needed something motivational for me, and a little competition helps. My first experience was difficult I struggled at first to remember techniques and good form in the beginning.  I would you say to someone sat on the fence about joining, “Just do it you will be surprised how quickly you can change your body even in your 40’s”.
