One-to-one

If you want to get stronger, learn new skills, feel more confident, improve all your physical endeavours and generally become a little bit more awesome, I can help you. If you’ve always wanted to do a pull up, see guys in the gym banging out dips and wondered if you can do the same, or are just looking for a very effective way to get strong, I can also help you.

Whether your goals are as wide-ranging as “build my upper body strength” or as specific as “train to do 10 pull ups”, if you have the drive to succeed I can teach you everything you need to achievement, give you guidance along the journey and advice on the next route to take in order to get to the next destination.

Working with me isn’t like having a normal PT – whilst you will lose weight, change your body shape and get fitter, I’m not going to spend an hour shouting at you to do more burpees, leaving you a sweaty exhausted mess at the end. Instead I focus on carefully taught and mindfully practised bodyweight exercises, leaving you with the knowledge, capability and confidence to extend your training beyond our time together.

Whilst I am happy to work on an ad-hoc basis, I feel following a specific program would bring the best results for most people.

Option 1 : Four session package 

This is suited to beginners to bodyweight training who also want to combine it with a bit of a lifestyle overhaul. It comprises of four training sessions and a half-hour session covering nutrition.

Stage 1

An initial consultation over the phone, by Skype or by email (free) to assess your needs and how we can work together. At this point you (or I!) may decide we are not for one another, which is fine, and if I can help pointing you in the direction of someone more suitable I will have no hesitation in helping as much as I can.

Stage 2 – Week 0

The first session would be a two hour session with me. The first part would be spent going through the exercises with you, showing you the correct form and ensuring that you feel confident being able to do them on your own (including on the different types of equipment you have available, for example in a park or at the gym). At least half an hour would be spent devising a training program for you to follow for the next few weeks.

Half an hour will be spent devising a suitable nutrition plan to suit your eating preferences and training needs. I am very much a believer in coming up with a sustainable way of eating that is matched to an individual, rather than an off-the-shelf diet which may not work for you, so this process will be very detailed and involve a lot of probing questions about your eating habits, likes, dislikes and relationship with food in general.

2 hours – £90

Stage 3 – Week 2 – 3

A further hours session to check your progress, go over any thing you are not sure of, teach you more (variations on existing exercises, new types of sets or ways of changing your workout etc.) and answer any questions, whether about training or nutrition. You can also expect to work very hard at this session!

1 hour – £45 

Stage 4 – Week 6 – 8

Six to eight weeks is a good training cycle – by this time, if you have been training hard and consistently, you should expect to see some notable results – or example I would expect a female who is not overweight and is in reasonable condition to be able to do a full pull up – so this session will focus on reviewing where you’ve come and taking you forward in your training. Progressions for the upcoming stages of the various bodyweight exercises will be taught (and also how to tell when you’re ready to progress), such as how to build up to doing more reps, introducing more advanced techniques such as tucked back lever, and also how to optimally adjust your training routine so that you can focus more on certain goals, rather than chasing everything at the same time.

1 hour – £45

Stage 5 – Future

From here I will always be available to answer any questions you might have (free!) and also for any future sessions, which will be charged at £45 per hour.

Option 2: Two session package

This is suited to those who are familiar with some of the bodyweight exercises and have made some progress, but are looking to consolidate and build on what they’ve got, ensure they are practising them with the proper form,  learn new exercises and generally take their training further.

Stage 1

An initial consultation over the phone, by Skype or by email (free) to assess your needs and how we can work together. At this point you (or I!) may decide we are not for one another, which is fine, and if I can help pointing you in the direction of someone more suitable I will have no hesitation in helping as much as I can.

Stage 2 – Week 0

An hour and a half session to see where you are, identify where you want to be, and teach you everything you need to get there. This session would cover all instruction for the relevant exercises, go over sets, reps etc. and I would also put together a training regime with you to take you until the next session.

£70

Stage 3 – Week 4 – 6 

After at least a month, a further hours session would review your progress, overhault your training plan and introduce further progressions and new exercises.

£45

Location

I am based in Central London and would recommend training in one of the parks in London with outdoor workout equipment, including Battersea Park, Kennington Park and Primrose Hill. Alternatively, I can get people into my gym for free on a Friday if you preferred to train indoors. For all other indoors locations you would be responsible for covering any relevant entry fees. 

I do not charge for transport within zones 1 – 3.

More than one of you?

I would be very happy to do this for up to three people, so that you can split the costs between you. 

Questions?

Just ask :)
