Any questions about Personal Training or Nutrition in Essex?

Most people feel nervous or intimidated to ask for help with their health or fitness. Below I have tried to answer the most common questions that I get asked by clients. But if you need any more information or a specific question answered, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me and I will be happy to get back to you. All information given will be held in the strictest confidence. Thank you.

Do I need to be fit to get started?

It doesn’t matter if you have never exercised before. I am here to help you no matter what level you are. We will take it at a pace that is just right for you, so you feel comfortable, whilst still reaching your goals.

I feel anxious about training


Being anxious or worried about starting something new is completely normal. Just make sure to let me know at the beginning of a session, so I know how you are feeling. We will always take it at your own pace and my number one priority is to always make sure you are feeling comfortable.

Will I look like a bodybuilder if I lift weights?


This is a very common question. In short the answer is no, women don’t bulk up. But building a certain amount of muscle has numerous health benefits and gives a toned look.

How quickly can I expect results?


When we first meet we will discuss your goals and what results you should expect. We will regularly review where we are and how you are feeling so we can make adjustments if they are necessary.

Do I need to have my own equipment?


I will be bringing all the equipment you need, to you. All you need is yourself, trainers, water and a small towel if needed.

What happens during a nutrition session?

Before a session we will have pre-arranged a time and also the method you would prefer for me to contact you; either phone, facetime, skype or in person. What happens during the sessions depends on what your goals are. We talk about you. You may be asked to keep a food diary the previous week, which we will discuss. I give you advice, tips and information to help you achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Our sessions are always a judgement free zone, I always want you to feel comfortable to be open and honest with me.

What kind of training will I be doing?

Our sessions are tailored specifically to you, your needs, your likes and dislikes. It could combine a mixture of resistance training, cardiovascular training, functional movements, weight training, stretching and high intensity interval training. Your sessions will also include a variety of different equipment.

I am worried about it being too hard and not being able to keep up


Please don’t worry about it being too hard or not being able to keep it up long term. I work with all levels of fitness and our sessions are specifically designed for you.

Where do we train?


We have two options, first, is in your own home. Just make sure the room that you pick has enough room for you to lie down and not hit your head if you were to jump!

The second option, is to train in my home. With both options, all the equipment you need will be provided.

How likely am I to reach my goals? 

 am 100% certain that you can reach your goals. I am also realistic that sometimes life throws things at us which can slow down our progress. At the start we will look at certain situations or feelings which may stop you from keeping on track and put plans into place to help prevent it. But if you do drift off track, we will work together to find out why and find a solution for you.

I have an injury will I be able to do it? 

As long as your doctor has said you are able to exercise, we are ready to go! All exercises can be adapted for you. If you are unable to exercise, the priority is to get you up and running again as quickly and safely as possible. There are lots of other things that we can work on in the meantime, such as lifestyle changes, nutrition and mind-set which will all help you achieve your long term goals.

How do I pay for my sessions?


Either through bank transfer, PayPal or in cash. We will talk about it more during our consultation and what method is best for you.

What happens if I need to cancel my session?


Sessions need to be cancelled a minimum of 24 hours in advance. We can then rearrange the session for a later date.
