The 4 questions I ask my clients when they work with me ..

What was your situation like before we started to work together?

I would regularly join a gym in January, determined to get fit but would have probably stopped going by mid Feb. I wasn’t doing any exercise regularly and felt lethargic, out of shape and concerned about potential health problems I was storing up for the future.Intellectually I knew the benefits of exercising but I didn’t have any idea of what to do or how to go about getting fitter. I was pretty intimidated by the whole idea of getting fit and the thought of exercising filled me with dread; I had no confidence at all in my ability to do anything physical.

What reservations (if any) did you have about working with me before?

I was worried you would be appalled at how unfit I was and my diet. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do what you asked me to do and that you’d tell me (gently!) that there was no point in my training. I thought you might not have the patience required to help me start seeing results.

What has the process of working with me been like?

A revelation! You have introduced exercise into my life by stealth! I was essentially a lazy person who would happily spend a lot of time doing very little. Somehow (and I really don’t know how) you have persuaded me into the habit of exercising with the result that I now choose to do it! I can remember thinking that exercising 3 times a week was a sensible goal but I couldn’t imagine achieving it…now I’m choosing to exercise 4-5 times a week, every week and I miss it if I don’t do it. You have educated me not just in the various exercise options that I have and the benefits of each one but also given me a firm grounding in nutrition – all of which means I have the tools that I need to maintain a healthy lifestyle…and see results. My outlook on exercise and diet has changed completely, I’ve had a complete overhaul to my physical and mental attitude – which is permanent. You’ve persuaded me to try things I never thought I a) would be able to do and b) would enjoy….and I have to admit that every time you’ve suggested something new, you’ve been proven to be right! You’ve given me the confidence to get out there and try new things and turned around how I see myself.

What is the one best result you have got from working with me?

Making exercise an everyday part of my life that I miss if I don’t do and not being scared to have a go any more!
