WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY

Personal Trainer Clapham

We couldn’t be more honoured or humbled.  Many men and women have written in with kind words.  Here’s just a few snippets:
“I can’t thank Fit to Last enough for giving me back my health and making me fitter and stronger than I have ever been” – Bernadette Hayes
“Fit to Last really helped me to understand how to break my bad habits, which I am so thankful for.” – Birgit Faullant
“Thanks to Fit to Last for helping change my life.”– Vanda Almeida

HERE ARE OUR TOP 10 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

1. “Who is Fit to Last for?”

Men and women age 21+ who want to go from yo-yo dieting to transforming not only their body, but their health and lifestyle habits too.

Our members have usually come to us for help for the following reasons:

  • I was fed up of spending money on a gym membership and not seeing results
  • I was finding it difficult to motivate myself
  • I needed support, structure and accountability
  • I find going to the gym intimidating and I’m not sure what to do when there
  • I was frustrated by wading through confusing information and wanted a straight forward plan to work on side by side with a fitness professional
  • I was finding it difficult to get into and stay in a habit of regular exercise when I had to book in my workouts on a day-to-day basis

2.”I’m not very fit at the moment, will I be able to do it?”

Yes, sure! The whole point in us being here is to help by providing you with structure, coaching and accountability to improve your health and fitness. If you weren’t looking to improve this, you wouldn’t need our help at all.

We’ll need you to complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire before we get started. This is just to make sure we’re aware of any health challenges you may currently be facing.

3. “How are your workout sessions run?

Each workout takes place at our private studio and runs for 50 minutes. You can attend sessions in a small group (maximum of 4 members) or on a one-to-one basis with our coach.

Small Group Training (maximum of 4 members per group)

This format gives you the benefits of a one-to-one approach in a small group setting. You’ll get the personal attention of your coach at a fraction of the cost, whilst at the same time receiving one-to-one coaching with your eating and lifestyle habits. You’ll get to know your workout buddies, providing you with a non-intimidating, supportive environment, an extra level of accountability and fun!

One-To-One Training

You may prefer to workout with our coach on a one-to-one basis. Or if you have an injury, one-to-one training may be more suitable, at least to begin with.

Our workouts vary to make sure that you are constantly challenged. We’ll always be working on improving your cardiovascular fitness, strength, power, posture and movement. We test the latter at regular intervals to track your progress.

You’ll be introduced and coached to use a variety of equipment i.e. battle ropes, slam balls, kettlebells, dumbells and TRX to name a few.

4. “What times and days do workouts take place?”

Before you get started, we’ll take a look at your schedule and see what you can realistically commit to. Once your workout schedule has been set, it will remain the same week in, week out. This way, you’ll never have to book in your workouts and you get into a good habit of regular exercise. Also, if you’re working out as part of a small group, you’ll be working out with the same team members each time, becoming part of a fitness family.

5. “Where will I need to go to attend workouts?”

Our private studio is in Clapham North Art Centre. About 5 minutes’ walk from Clapham Common, Clapham North and Clapham High Street stations. (There is also free parking available at our studio).

Our address: Unit 1P, Clapham North Art Centre, 26-32 Voltaire Road, Clapham, SW4 6DH.

6. “How will you track my progress?”

You and your coach will always have clear goals set. Once we’ve discussed your goals with you and the strategy within which you will achieve these, we can then determine the time frame to achieve them.

Before you start your program, you’ll complete an assessment. Your assessments will include the following:

  • Body composition assessment
  • Before/after photos (yep, we know that’s a bit scary but you want to see the change don’t you?)
  • Movement screen
  • Posture assessment
  • Fitness test

You’ll then have an appointment each month to re-assess. These assessments partnered with your coaching will help us to track your progress and understand the approaches that work best for you to achieve and maintain your results.

7. “How much time will I need to commit to the Fit to Last program?”

  • You’ll need to be able to attend at least two 50-minute workouts with our coach at our studio each week.
  • You’ll also need to commit 5-10 minutes a day to your tailored nutrition and lifestyle coaching (via our Fit to Last app).
  • You’ll also need to commit about 2 hours per week to preparing your meals using whole foods from your usual supermarket (unless you always buy ready meals or takeaways, you’ll already be doing this anyway).
  • You’ll need to be willing to commit to the program for a minimum of 12 weeks (this is a good timeframe to see some serious results).

8. “How much will I need to invest?”

What you need to invest will depend on the strategy, methods and time frame suitable for you to achieve your goals. This is why we genuinely need to see you to discuss your fitness goals and the options we have available to achieve them.

You can always try us out risk-free for 90 days (see below for our money back guarantee).

9. “Do you offer a guarantee?”

Of course. Complete our program for a minimum of 12-weeks and see results, or we’ll give you a 100% refund.

10. How do I get started?

The first step will be to book in a call with us. We can answer any further questions you have and arrange a convenient time for you to visit us at our studio for a consultation.

4 Ways to Burn More Calories After Your Workout

4 Ways to Burn More Calories After Your Workout

THE AFTERBURN EFFECT

EPOC (aka the afterburn effect) stands for Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption. It’s crucial if you want to get the most out of your training time to see those results faster.

EPOC is all about challenging yourself during your training sessions to speed up your metabolism after you leave the gym in Clapham. While it will feel challenging at the time, by consistently challenging yourself you’ll burn more calories during and after your workout, and by extension, your body will change faster than by keeping at the same pace.

Think of EPOC as an extension of the time you spend in the gym. If you spend your time on a cardio machine operating at a steady pace, you’ll get a sweat on and a bit of an endorphin rush (the happy feeling we get the following exertion) to a certain extent.

However, if you focus on lifting challenging weights using your whole body and using that same cardio machine but completing intervals that get you out of breath, your body requires energy to catch your breath and recovery from the more challenging workout you have just completed.

Here are four ways you can get more out of your training sessions and feel the benefits of EPOC straight away.

1. SUPERSETS

The theory behind supersets is that you complete exercises on different body parts, one after the other without resting. One body part is working while another is resting, but the overriding point is that you are pushing yourself, as well as saving time in the process.

A few examples of efficient supersets include:

Kettlebell swings and dumbbell shoulder presses
TRX Self-rows and lateral lunges
Dumbbell bench press and assisted pull-ups

2. NEGATIVE RESTS

This means you are working for longer than you are resting (for example if you perform an exercise for 30 seconds, you take maximum 20 seconds rest between sets).

This will mean your body will not fully recover between exercises, but the benefit of that is when your body doesn’t recover it will adapt. That’s a sure-fire way to improve your fitness.

3. CHOOSE YOUR WEIGHTS BY FORM, NOT GUESS-WORK

People often make assumptions based on how much weight someone can lift.

When it comes to weight choice for exercise, consider what you want to achieve, and then choose a weight that will enable you to stay in that rep range.

Here are some guidelines when it comes to weight-training goals:

Strength Without Size: 6-8 repetitions
Hypertrophy (Muscle Growth): 8-12 repetitions
Muscular Endurance: 13-15 repetitions
If you can do more than the range, the weight is too light. If you can’t get to the range with the correct form, the weight is too heavy.

4. USE AS MANY JOINTS AS POSSIBLE

When you complete any exercise make sure you use as many points as you can (look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself how many joints are involved in completing the exercise – and yes, wrists and ankles count here). If you’re using less than 3 joints, think about how you can add more joints into the mix.

By doing this you will use more of your body, causing more energy to be consumed.

So get ready to get sweaty and to breath heavier – your body shape will thank you for it.
