Get Active / Get Fit PT
What does it involve
The first step is to get active and get moving. To make it sustainable keep it safe and enjoyable i.e. just TRY … Train Right for You
yes, you may get sweaty and tired
yes, you may ache
yes, you may need to do another 10 squats
yes, you will gain more energy and build confidence
yes, your body shape will change
Are you going to have to do a few burpees??? Absolutely yes !!! (I had to … so you can too!)
The most important thing to learn / realise is that there are options and alternatives for everyone to help us achieve our goals. Here are some examples:
Do you dislike running long periods? Well, we can try short shuttle runs or brisk walking or do star jumps. Another good cardio option is Boxing …. for fitness, not in the ring! It is a great stress reliever and a great cardio workout. It is one of my favourites.
Do you bend down to pick up a box or child? Well the movement involved should be similar to a squat.
Do you believe sit ups are the best or only way to get a six pack? Have you ever thought about whether sit ups are as good for your back as they are for you abdominals? Leg raises are a good alternative and more aligned to natural body movement as you are flexing at the hip. There are alternatives and other options that work the abdominal area.
Do you suffer from lower back pain and are you perhaps afraid of moving for fear of increasing the pain? The real answer is to keep moving, and focus on getting the muscles surrounding the lower back more active to reduce the strain on the back.
If you want to give yourself the opportunity to work at your pace and be the best you can be, then discover what is possible with TRY.
Your goal, Your pace
Discover what is possible and sustainable… your goal, your pace ! One of the best trainers I worked with taught me the value of “keeping it safe” and “keeping it real” i.e. making it sustainable.
Build confidence by doing activities and exercise that suit your level of capability and that you enjoy. Get into a sustainable routine to achieve and sustain your goal. Here are some of the goals my clients have:
- Lose fat and fit into a specific size of clothing (popular goal)
- Become more functionally fit to be able to walk at least a mile without being breathless and improve functioning of legs (this client has a heart condition)
- Maintain weight loss achieved so far, manage diet to avoid diabetic medication and keep fit for skiing
- To be able to improve time taken to complete a 5km run for charity
My clients will tell you that my sessions are varied (you never know what you will get) and make them sweat but they keep coming back so I think something is working. The best feedback that I have had is when clients say “I did not know I could do that” and when they want to try an extra rep or 2. This is what TRY is all about.
Weight / fat loss: By this I mean being the best version of you, in terms of size of clothing, increased energy, feeling healthy and happy all while still enjoying life
Functional fitness: I focus on improving functional strength and ability to improve your quality of life. I can support you to reduce stress by walking, enjoying the outdoors with friends or family, running after the kids and even to do those moves you never thought possible.
Body toning & core strength: We all want some part(s) of our body to be more toned or more defined e.g. 6-pack? reduce bingo wings?? (I had them too!). But this is not just about how you look, this is also about training and using all your core muscles (there are quite a few) correctly to reduce the onset of or manage e.g. lower back pain.
Performance: This ranges from simply walking at a pace to keep up with friends, family and maybe the kids or running that e.g. 10km race a little faster.
Health conditions & medical referrals: I am qualified for medical referrals. I work with people who suffer from lower back pain, diabetes, obesity and other health conditions.

TRY Get active PT Sessions
Sessions are tailored to your goals using a combination of cardio and strength training to help you get more active, fitter and stronger. Exercises incorporate multiple muscle groups for a complete body workout as well as specific areas that require special attention. I know from my own experience that some exercises can be daunting and the natural tendency is to avoid them. But there are ways to slowly build up to the so-called “hard” exercises and you will be amazed by what you can do. I still am! Most importantly, by doing it this way we build strength, confidence and believe me, we will have the best chance of achieving your own goal.

Movement & Running school Adults
This starts off with an analysis of wlaking and/or running, following but a functional movement assessment that reveals how you use your muscles, where there are weaknesses or compensations either from injury or just habits developed over time. Based on this we can then determine what needs to be done to improve your movement and coach you to either help you recover from injury and/or make you more efficient, stronger and, if desired, faster.

Movement & Running School Kids
Kids sessions are aimed at improving body control, balance, co-ordination and agility so that they can participate and excel with confidence in all kinds of sport. We all think we are not natural runners, but we can all be taught to run and running is part of many sports. The combination of movement coaching and running technique will help build your child’s skills and confidence to run.
For those kids who already love running, the coaching will help develop their speed and agility skills and we will work with them to improve their technique to enable them to run faster.
