Personal trainer London: find your fitness instructor!

According to a recent study commissioned by the British Lung Foundation, only about 12% of the adults surveyed declared working out at least once a week, and about 1 in 4 adults actually actively try to avoid exercise.

About 20% of those who exercised cited their motivation as being wanting to look good, and 27% as wanting to stay healthy to prevent future illnesses.

These numbers show that there is a growing concern for physical health, and that the British population is beginning to engage in more physical activities to keep fit.

Moreover, our modern-day society must face various global health concerns, some of which can even lead to deadly chronic diseases, such as malnutrition, physical inactivity and stress, which in itself may lead to depression, obesity, hypertension, diabetes or even cancer.

However, to prevent the onset risk of such pathologies, everybody can agree on one point: it is crucial to practice at least one or two sports in order to stay in shape.

In the Big Smoke, the hectic London life can become taxing for some.

Another good argument in favour of exercising, since it helps to blow off steam, clear your mind and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life (car horns, motors of all kinds, etc.).

But this isn鈥檛 a one man job. And you of course ignore the strengthening exercises you need to do in order to tone your body and the stretches required to loosen your muscles and tighten your skin.

Why not then join a fitness centre or gym in one of London鈥檚 32 boroughs, in order to benefit from proper individual coaching?

Superprof tells you all you need to know about personal training in London. But let鈥檚 start with the basics.

What is personal training?

In London, the offer of fitness lessons that allow you to stay in shape is abundant. From individual coaching at home via the now well-known platform Superprof, to fitness clubs, sports clubs, local and private sports associations and everything in between.

However, it would be ill-advised to just dive in head-first. It鈥檚 important to know how to choose the right structure, to identify your personal objectives and to carefully select your personal trainer.

We are often given the clich茅 image, usually thanks to TV, of the thickset, superficial trainer with bulging muscles who trains his rich clients (usually women) in their luxurious upper-class neighbourhood mansions.

This is, of course, a bit cartoonish, as personal fitness instructors are a lot more than that.

They are sports professionals who teach you how to exercise properly and who supervise your movements to make sure you鈥檙e doing them well.

Their goal is to motivate their students and to help them progress so that they can improve their physical condition, all while making sure they enjoy themselves in the long term.

As such, they provide individual support by measuring their clients鈥 physical capabilities and by enticing them to multiply their athletic performance.

Personal trainers often give lessons at their client鈥檚 home, but can sometimes intervene in fitness centres or gyms.

Students seldom go to their trainer鈥檚 home for their fitness lessons.

Personal training lessons strive to quickly tone and strengthen your body. But they also do much more than that.

Personal trainers don鈥檛 just intervene on a fitness level, though. They also provide guidance on nutrition and food hygiene, putting themselves in a nutritionist鈥檚 shoes.

And, since trainers need to know the anatomy and physiology of the human body, in order to properly teach you about muscles and how exercise works, they need to be properly certified (Level 2 and/or Level 3 certificate, accredited by CIMSPA and REPs), so that they are recognised by both fitness professionals and insurers.

Otherwise, beware of injuries (joints, muscle tearing or spasms, lumbar or back pain, etc.)!

Personal trainers are professionals when it comes to exercise, chemistry of the human body and biology, in order to help their students progress.

So, you鈥檒l be able to heed their advice as if you wanted to become a high-level athlete!

What to do with your personal trainer in London

Whether it鈥檚 at home or at the gym, professional fitness instructors can be beneficial to all types of people, from lazy beginners to professional-level athletes.

Why invest in personal coaching in London?

First of all, being supported helps you get motivated. And maintaining said motivation isn鈥檛 always easy, especially if you鈥檝e been inactive for a while.

On top of that, when you exercise on your own, like when you lift weights at home, you鈥檙e not necessarily aware of the mistakes that you鈥檙e making.

One wrong move, going at a pace that鈥檚 too fast for your level, or simply breathing wrong can become counterproductive.

Therein lies the central importance of a personal trainer. As fitness instructors, they accompany their students and see to their progress.

They sell an 鈥渁t-home coaching鈥 service to their students, and they build personalised fitness programmes adapted to each, in order to best meet their objectives.

One of the primary motivations for athletic training in the UK is often to get back in shape.

Personal training can include a sort of 鈥渇at camp鈥, or slimming treatment, for people who are overweight and who would like to skim down.

Someone who鈥檚 obese, for example, will probably find it difficult to force themselves to exercise regularly and to sweat until they have a flat stomach or rock-hard abs.

In that case, they can resort to their coach鈥檚 dietary advice, as well as the exercises they鈥檒l recommend to lose weight (including muscle strengthening, stretching, ab and glute exercises, leg flexes, squats, weight-lifting, etc.).

Personal trainers are also personal development coaches who will mentor not only those who are overweight, but also lazy people and professional athletes:

     

  • To limit the incidence of heart disease
  • To gain self-confidence
  • To enlarge the rib cage
  • To gain muscle mass
  • To loosen your muscles
  • To tighten your skin

This individual coaching can also be used as an opportunity to review your shape, since your trainer will measure your heart rate in order to determine your training programme.

You will be able to see fast results if you manage to keep your initial good resolutions!

The benefits of personal training with Superprof

Regular exercise leads to a relaxed body.

The stretching and contracting of the muscles helps eliminate toxins, binding fat into muscle mass.

What鈥檚 more, a regular athlete鈥檚 heart rate actually diminishes over time, meaning that exercise helps prevent the onset of heart disease, blood disorders, or other serious organ diseases.

Other benefits of a customised personal training programme:

Firstly, having a coach at home helps eliminate stress and gives you confidence.

The best breathing (especially if you don鈥檛 smoke) that ensues will make you feel so much better!

Your body will follow a strict training programme, under the trained eye of your instructor.

All exercise carries many benefits for self-affirmation and well-being, and there are a number of different activities you can choose from, according to your personality, that will help you get there: 

  • Crossfit
  • Cardio training exercises
  • Elliptical machine or indoor cycling classes
  • Skipping rope
  • Running
  • Karate and other combat sports
  • Boxing or cardio boxing (kickboxing, Tha茂 boxing, etc.)
  • Body-building 
  • Aqua aerobics or senior gym
  • Yoga
  • Cross training
  • Aerobics, zumba or pilates
  • Martial arts and self defense

Our personal trainers at Superprof London

Many fitness instructors put their trust in us in Greater London.

In the Square Mile, finding a personal trainer will be much easier than finding a flat! All you have to do is sign up on the Superprof platform and choose your coach based on a number of different criteria, such as:

     

  • Hourly rate 
  • The training completed by the trainer (Level 2 certificate, Level 3 diploma, etc.)
  • Where the coach is located 
  • The type of physical training required for the lesson

To lose weight, feel comfortable in a size 6 and show off your perfect body, there鈥檚 no point in binging on amino acids and creatinine. Your movements will 鈥渟imply鈥 have to be carried out in an educational way and demonstrate perseverance.

That鈥檚 why it鈥檚 important that personal trainers be sure of themselves, so that they can confidently teach their students the correct positions and make their clients feel comfortable.

As personal training sessions are fairly consistent (often weekly), you will also need to find a coach who鈥檚 nice, someone whom you鈥檒l get along with (considering you鈥檒l have to see each other pretty often).

Often, a first lesson is offered for free by our fitness instructors, which allows you to test out a fitness session before looking for another instructor if the chemistry isn鈥檛 there and you don鈥檛 feel comfortable continuing.

Whether you鈥檙e looking to bulk up or, on the contrary, lose weight, to rebalance the energy in your body, to benefit from diet tips, or to get back in shape, you have no more excuses to multiply your physical attributes in London!
