Working out your Goals

When you hire your very own personal trainer from PWR Personal Training you are invited to state your 3 main targets/goals/aims/objectives.

Why are you hiring a personal trainer?

The list of reasons/goals is varied, although always along the lines of lack of confidence, lack of motivation, lack of knowledge, lack of time, and lack of enjoyment of exercise. Let's face it, if it hurts, which it does, what's fun about it?
During your thorough one-to-one consultation - included free of charge with any of our 10 or 20 workout package, your PWR personal trainer will spend as long as necessary listening to your fears, worries, concerns and barriers, of which there are usually many.

"I hate the gym."; "I hate my fat thighs."; "I need to lose 4 stone but I love wine and pizza."; "I don't have any time to keep fit."; "My husband/wife/partner is a feeder."

Once you and your trainer have digested your concerns, we will close in on 2 or 3 main goals. This might not include entering the next Great North Run at this stage, but perhaps something smaller and more in reach.
Your trainer and you will agree on a set of targets, and a specific time frame for each. A fortnight of gentle workouts to build confidence. The next fortnight we might try to step things up a little. At each stage we review and reset new goals according to how you feel you have progressed. Little targets. One step at a time. And always achieving. Always progressing.
Repeat this process for 8 or more weeks and before you know it, you're looking down at the scales that show you're a stone lighter. And, hey, you can jog for half an hour, no problem, and hey, you're wearing that little black dress again.
Your PWR trainer will be there every step of the way. Encouraging, reassuring, checking how you're doing.
