Progressive Personal Training puts in place a lot of the parts traditional personal training neglects: sustainability, empowerment, education and balance.
Our approach is built on 3 Pillars that we believe are fundamental to change: Mindset, Nutrition and Training. Our experience has shown that balance between all 3 is essential to lasting change, with mindset being the more important.
One of our core beliefs is that anything we change should be permanent. There’s no point in changing how we look, feel or perform temporarily. That’s why we educate and empower you with the tools, techniques and mindset to be able to make life-long change and maintain it.
Habits are what allow us change who we are with the least amount of energy and the greatest probability of success. Nobody wants to keep using motivation and discipline to alway make the right choices. Instead, we focus on building simple, sustainable habits that become part of who you are.
How about taking more control of your journey, being in charge of where you are going and how you are getting there? We show you from the very first personal training consultation the level of influence you can have over your life, and we share a solid proven plan of how to implement change.
We provide something very unique that we believe can’t be found anywhere else.
Unlike short-term programmes, we address the mental, physical and emotional aspects to your progress, facilitating holistic change to bring balance to all areas.
One big discerning difference we have is the solutions we provide both educate and empower, so that once you make a change, it’s not temporary, it’s life long.
We work closely through each individual's unique challenges, meeting you where you're are at, and guiding you to your goals.
Understandably, you may want a coach to motivate you. However, this is a temporary fix to a long term issue. Instead, we work with you to build self-sustaining habits that won't rely on external motivaton, but that become a way of life.
Perhaps the most common misconception is that training has to be brutal to be effective. This is simply not true – especially at the start. Any incremental change will make a difference. Then, as you progress, so will your training, harmoniously matching your new-found strength. This is one reason why repetitive exercise like yoga or running (while beneficial) doesn’t produce the results most people want, as there is a cap on intensity.
Most of us know and have seen that diets don’t work in the long run, and yet we still feel we need to torture ourselves, even for short periods. Here, we focus on small, consistent habit changes around food. In this way, we’ll make changes that you’ll have forever.
When it comes to changing the body, the biggest mistake we see is wanting to train too much. Thinking that training 3, 4 or even 5 times a week is required to get results, when it’s usually the contrary. Over-exercising can lead to injury or illness, it’s harder to stick to, and takes more time. We want you to achieve more, in less time, with a more intelligent approach.
A lot of our clients are already making a serious effort to eat healthily when they join us, but are still dealing with a higher BMI or bodyfat level than they would like. Another factor that we may not even be aware of is how much muscle we have. Unfortunately, a lot of us are unclear about what actually works, due to the conflicting messages we receive. We will help you to understand the underlying principles of nutrition, that will actually have an impact.
There’s a lot of perceived options out there when it comes to getting fit, changing our body or feeling better about ourselves. There’s exercise classes, hobbies like running or biking and team sports. None of these replace or can compensate for progressive strength training. Progressive Personal Training is the foundation which allows us to do anything else in life. It is the only method which will build mobility to move easily and safely, build strength and muscle to prevent injury and it’s the only method we prescribe in our personal training sessions.
