Benefits of having a Personal Trainer

Benefits of having a personal trainer

Personal trainers are not just for stars and athletes. Everyone can benefit from working with a trainer.
Personal training is truly an investment in one’s own health and well -being.
So why can you achieve more with a personal trainer?

James Flatman is a fully qualified personal trainer and owner of Fitness Team Ipswich, and he has shared his views on the benefits of having a personal trainer.


Motivation: It is important not only to help you develop your own personalised goals but to also develop a realistic and achievable plan to attain these goals.

Develop a personalised program: With years of experience and qualifications in a range of fields, I will find the most effective way to help you achieve your fitness goals.

Nutrition: My aim is to provide my clients with sensible advice with their nutrition and dietary habits.
Too few have enough knowledge in nutrition, and with such a crucial part to play in your health and well-being, I will help to develop a plan of attack to fight that stubborn fat and build lean tissue.

Proper technique and form: As more and more people take up physical activity and join gyms, I see more and more magazines, websites, and posts raving about the latest craze in the fitness industry. This leads to more gym enthusiasts and weight lifters trying their hand at new moves, and taking on new challenges.
This is all well and good, however, but can you truly master these new and exciting techniques and movement patterns from a magazine diagram, or a speedy online demonstration?
It is my job to ensure every client learns how to lift effectively and safely, getting the best out of their exercise program.

Sports specific training: Even a recreational athlete can improve performance in their sport.
It is my job to study body movements and patterns, and therefore I know the best exercises to help you develop strength, power, speed, endurance, reaction and agility.

Results: We all know how hard it can be to achieve the results you’re looking for on your own.
As a trainer, it is my job to allow you to do exactly this.
Each person’s sgoals are extremely personal. Whether it be weight loss, injury rehab, or performance enhancement, I will develop the goals that will lead you on the path to success.

If you feel you could benefit from having one to one personal training sessions to better your fitness levels or learn new skills, then contact us to BOOK a FREE consultation with James and discuss a Package that will suit your needs.
