You know the gym inside out but two heads can sometimes be better than one. Choose Fit for Purpose if you've got an ideal physique in mind or need to get even fitter for other sports or activities. If you're pursuing perfection then this is for you.
We can help you hit targets to get fit for football, tennis, skiing and plenty of other sports. Equally we can help you build muscle, improve your training techniques or share advice on other specific areas of your fitness and physique.
High-intensity interval training (or HIIT) is an exercise strategy that alternates between periods of intense anaerobic exercise and slower recovery periods for a shorter, more efficient workout – ideal for those who exercise regularly and already possess a solid level of fitness.
With some sessions as short as three minutes, HIIT delivers all the health and fitness benefits of steadier endurance cardio in a fraction of the time. It increases brain oxygenation so can potentially boost your intelligence, while just 150 seconds of intense exercise can burn as many as 200 calories over the following 24 hours thanks to a boosted resting metabolic rate.
As well as improving speed, strength and endurance we can focus on skills specific to the sports you're passionate about.
Serial skills will increase fluidity of movement and improve dexterity with drills focused on honing your proprioception and coordination. Discrete skills will sharpen your accuracy and muscle memory by strengthening joints to increase stability, boost muscular awareness and improve hand-eye coordination. Continuous skills focus on multi-tasking and training your sensory awareness for improved technical form.
Aside from sculpting an aesthetically pleasing physique, the body benefits from building muscle on a more functional level too. Muscular development protects the body from injury, aids weight loss and enlivens the body with a healthy alertness.
By combining dietary regulation with the right training procedures our experts treat muscular development as both a science and a core aspect of building a better you.
Because I am blind, I cannot learn new exercises by watching my trainer nor can he show me what I am doing wrong – he has to either verbalise the technique or demonstrate by physically making adjustments to my body shape.
For this reason, I need to work with a trainer who can effectively explain an exercise and describe the postures and workings of the body that correspond to the proper execution of that exercise. I have found such a trainer in Rob, and as a result, working out with him is both productive and enjoyable.
Through careful instruction and my conscious effort to comprehend and implement what I’m being told, I gain a greater understanding of the mechanics and purpose of an exercise than perhaps I would through visual imitation.
The team's knowledge, creativity and flexibility make training at MyFitness Studio both a worthwhile pleasure and an education.
I decided to invest in some personal training sessions six months before my wedding in July 2011 and have been training with Rob and the team ever since.
As is the case for so many brides (and grooms) to be, I was a bit nervous about the pressure of looking good on my wedding day. My objective was simply to lose some weight and tone up so I could feel confident and happy with how I would look in our wedding pictures.
At my first session Rob identified key areas for us to work on including my arms, thighs and bottom and how specifically to make all of those areas slimmer and tighter. I originally trained only twice a week and saw huge changes in my body after just a couple of months. My arms were noticeably toned and my bottom smaller and tighter.
The team gave me great nutritional information to ensure my diet supported my training and weight loss goals. By my wedding in July I had not only hit my weight loss target, I had toned up dramatically. I felt in the best shape of my life and as a result I felt confident and happy in my dress. That on-the-day confidence really shows through in our pictures and I’m so thankful to MyFitness Studio for helping me achieve this.
Our Fit for the Occasion sessions were the right mix of fun and hard work and I enjoyed them so much that I couldn’t give up training after the wedding.
