Personal Trainers in Leeds

Personal trainer Leeds: find your fitness instructor!

According to Insure4Sport, there are over 13,770 personal trainers in the UK. Only 35% of them are women, and about 80% of them work as freelancers. Overall, the Health & Fitness industry grew by 75% between 2000 and 2011.


Health and well-being, even in times of financial crisis, continue to be a cause for concern for many people.


You live in Leeds and currently run around Waterloo lake, in Roundhay Park? Or maybe you sometimes head north to Meanwood Valley Trail for a change of scenery?


You鈥檙e interested in high performance sports?


You want to lose weight, but you鈥檙e not sure how to reach your goals before the summer?


Regular fitness and cardio training will always do you some good.


Whether it鈥檚 by hitting the gym, doing some training at home, or even outside (cardio training, cycling, rowing, rock-climbing, team sports, etc.).


But, it鈥檚 not always enough.


In order to make further progress, it鈥檚 sometimes necessary to turn to a professional trainer, a genuine fitness instructor, who will build a complete training programme to fit your needs.


And who hasn鈥檛 dreamt about having a personalised program prepared just for you by a sports professional?


And what about getting motivated by a real coach, who knows the job like the back of his biceps?


Having an at-home personal trainer isn鈥檛 necessarily superficial, like going to sweat at a zumba class so you can show off your beautiful abs at the beach.


Even top-level athletes turn to personal trainers.


So, no shame, and let鈥檚 get started!


Here鈥檚 why you should find a sports coach to get back in shape, and how to find one in Leeds.

Personal trainer Leeds: objectives and qualities

Contrary to what some people think, fitness instructors aren鈥檛 necessarily top-level athletes.


Being a sports coach requires, first and foremost, a solid set of interpersonal skills.


Do we ask high school teachers to do scientific research?


No, their role is to transmit the key results of said research to their students.


Thus, personal trainers don鈥檛 have to be world champions in their discipline in order to teach it.


They 鈥渙nly鈥 have to show their students the proper posture techniques to adopt and the training programme that will make them feel comfortable, so that they can quickly make progress in a friendly atmosphere.


Here are some qualities that are often required of fitness instructors:

     

  • They lead healthy lifestyles, both when it comes to food and fitness 
  • They are tolerant and supportive 
  • They know how and when to intervene by identifying their clients鈥 problem areas, what they have more trouble with, and when they become saturated with a certain exercise, in order to better adapt the personalised programme 
  • They remain cheerful, polite, courteous, positive and dynamic at all times; just like in sales, fitness instructors are ambassadors of their own monthly revenues, so it鈥檚 important that they convey a positive image of themselves (both for them and for their clients) 
  • They are punctual, motivating their clients from the get-go 
  • They are rigorous and precise, two qualities that prove serious legitimacy to clients (in yoga, for example, a vague explanation of downward dog will certainly not suffice) 
  • They listen to their clients and take into account their different preferences and dispositions 
  • They know how to assess their trainees鈥 strengths and weaknesses 
  • They can adapt to all situations (a sports coaching session will never turn out as planned, so it鈥檚 imperative for trainers to quickly adapt the class accordingly) 
  • They must have great people skills

In parallel to having all of these skills, and as providers of in-home services, personal trainers must also be certified with the proper license.


In the UK, it鈥檚 important to have your Level 2 certificate or diploma if you want to enter a career in personal training.


After all, it鈥檚 important to know the different sports disciplines, the objectives of each, the chemistry of the human body, and how to be a good judge of character.


In Leeds, the fitness instructors that put their trust in Superprof are:

     

  • Studying or have finished their studies (BSC and/or MSc in Fitness, Physiology, Sports Science, etc.) 
  • Qualified coaches (boxing, Olympic sports, etc.) 
  • Professional trainers (Level 2 and Level 3 certificates)

From Horsforth to the city centre, and from Alwoodley to Rothwell, the City of Leeds provides a good environment for muscle strengthening and cardio exercises.

What to do with your sports coach and what to expect from the private lessons

The day of your first at-home lesson has finally come? It鈥檚 your first personal training experience and you鈥檙e a bit nervous?


To relieve some of the stress of this first encounter, one solution (which we should actually all be applying daily, no matter what) works quite well: doing a sun salutation first thing in the morning, making sure to focus on your breathing.


This doesn鈥檛 necessarily ensure that you will be extra productive during your session, but it helps to relieve stress and to make you feel good about yourself for the rest of the day.


The motivations that most frequently drive people to invest in personal training are a desire to lose weight and/or to have a flat stomach and a resolve to stay in shape.


Feeling like your physical capabilities begin to dwindle when you turn 25, for example, is very unfortunate and even worrisome for the future.


Hence, a personal coach is both beneficial for all, at all ages, and can contribute to gaining self-confidence.


Muscle-toning cardio exercises are a step in that direction. Without necessarily having to go to the gym to use all of the necessary equipment (exercise machines, leg press, dumbbells, etc.), you can work out with your personal trainer in the comfort of your own home.


If you want to lose weight and tighten your skin, for example, lifting weights will help replace the calories you burn with muscle mass. However, it鈥檚 important to complement this with a healthy diet, under your coach鈥檚 guidance (you can also get some help from a dietician, if needed).


If you are overweight, or obese, you may experience some difficulties moving, and are perhaps even at risk of stroke. In this case, favour instead exercises like gentle gym, aqua-aerobics classes, Nordic walking, etc., in order to strengthen your core via low-intensive activities suitable to you.


If you really want to improve your physical condition, after only a couple of sports lessons, you will see an increase in your athletic performance.


This will be the moment to move to crossfit or to something more sustained (body pump, cardio boxing, kick boxing, weightlifting, squats, dips, bootcamps, working your abs and pecs with dumbbells, etc.)


But careful! Don鈥檛 wait for your fitness lesson before engaging in physical activities. We recommend exercising at least once or twice a week, in parallel to your personal coaching sessions.


Its also important not to overlook the importance of warming up and stretching properly (otherwise, you can say hello to sore muscles for a week!), and pay attention to your postures to avoid getting hurt.


Your personal training lesson should be versatile, but your instructor can鈥檛 do it all. A big part of the work has to come from deep within you.


In short, getting personalised support directly at home is an efficient, instructive and progressive way of conditioning your body, both physically and mentally, without having to go to the gym.

The criteria to help you find a personal trainer in Leeds

Ok so, exercising is great, we get it, but how much does it cost?


A personal trainer is, of course, more expensive than going to the gym.


But then again, how many people out there pay for their gym memberships and never actually go? Isn鈥檛 it worth investing a little bit more for something you know will get you in shape, rather than trying to save some pounds and then realising you don鈥檛 actually know how to use any of the machines and the group classes are all at inconvenient times?


In Leeds, there are already about a dozen instructors ready to give you keep-fit lessons.


If you鈥檙e also ready to give them a try, here are some important points to keep in mind when choosing your personal trainer:

     

  • Make sure you identify your personal objectives 
  • Compare hourly rates (with an average price of about 拢19 an hour, lessons range from 拢10 to 拢40 an hour), 
  • Carefully select your geographic area (if you live in Horsforth, for example, try to find someone who lives around you, in Bradford or around the city centre, rather than looking for coaches in Wakefield) 
  • Take a look at the trainers鈥 background and experience (do they have a bachelor鈥檚 degree in sports medicine? have they obtained their Level 2 and Level 3 certificates?), to ensure that they are qualified to give you personal training lessons

However, whether they have a personal training certificate or a professional experience as a trainer or sports coach will change very little. What matters most is human contact and having those interpersonal skills.


At the end of the day, you need to find someone with whom you are comfortable. After all, you鈥檒l be seeing quite a bit of each other. And what better way to find the perfect personal trainer for you than to take advantage of a first lesson offered for free?
