Are you looking to finally get stronger, look better, reduce pain and increase energy? Personal trainer helps you with many goals.

Everyone knows exercise is the answer. However, due to lack of motivation and organization 95% of the people never actually reach their goals.

One of my core beliefs is that your goals, your physical condition and your expectations must be in harmony. How many people commit to an intense regimen at the end of the year only to lose motivation by mid-January? How many people do that every.single.year? Inadequate training process also can cause injuries. Others simply live in an illusion that the future is always brighter. As a result, some personal event forces them to finally address their personal health that they were neglecting for years.

Working with a Personal Trainer

My approach to personal training is to create a highly targeted effective training plan you will actually stick to. As a personal trainer, I do it by listening to your specific goals and using my expertise (you can read about my education and certification here) and a lifetime of fitness experience. In addition, I will be with you every step of the way. We will work to address your physical well-being from all angles: strength, cardio, flexibility, balance, specific skills.

No motivation? Busy schedule? Injuries that prevent from common exercises? Do you feel that exercise 'is just not me' or you are too X Y or Z to exercise? Probably you are limited in your budget. Maybe you had a bad experience with a personal trainer or exercising in the past. Are you ready for your excuses to melt away and start seeing tangible results? Me too. Read on!

I am highly adaptable personal trainer. As a result, we will find the best option for exercising for you. I work with different clients because I enjoy helping people every single day.

Working out with a personal trainer has many great benefits (read below). What are you waiting for? Let's meet and I will create an individual type and plan for you after a fitness assessment, so you can get the most benefits from exercising.

Initial Fitness Consultation

One of the greatest challenges most people experience in starting anything new, and especially in fitness is getting started. As a result, some people delay months or years because they feel unsure about how to begin. Luckily to get on your way to a healthier, stronger, and fitter you is less difficult than it seems. As a famous proverb goes a journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.

Even though I was involved in elite sport for many years and developed healthy habits in some areas, I had to find new ways to maintain them when I retired from professional sport. I also spent some time transforming my poor habits, which negatively affected my life.

The best option is to meet regularly once a week. First, the one week period is enough for accomplishing homework discussed at the previous consultation.

Saying that, understanding the different time and budget resources I am flexible to meet periodically on a custom schedule such as once every two weeks. Making small steps is better than standing still!

People usually get benefits even from meeting for guided exercises session once a week. Depending on your overall activity level and your goals, one session can suit you well. However, two or three sessions a week help you to reach your goals faster.

Yes, I can come to your home for training sessions or lifestyle consultations. Just keep in mind, that it is better to have a quiet space for lifestyle consultation, so you feel comfortable and are not distracted.
