Strength Based Training with a Twist

Unlock your full potential and achieve your fitness goals with my expertly designed personal training sessions.

Each session is tailored to push you to your limits, starting with a focus on strength training using weights to build lean muscle mass. Followed by high-intensity interval training (HiiT) or short circuit finisher to ignite your metabolism and burn calories, leaving you feeling invigorated and accomplished.

And to ensure optimal recovery, a stretching session is included, leaving you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your next challenge.

Compound Exercise

Learn the major exercises for building muscle and strength. Lift heavy weights and recruit more muscle fibers, to have greater impact on overall body composition and functional fitness.

Isolated Exercise

Target specific muscle groups for muscle growth and definition. Isolation exercises can be useful for fine-tuning muscle imbalances or addressing weaknesses in specific muscle groups

HiiT Circuit

An effective way to burn fat and improve cardiovascular fitness. HiiT raises the heart rate to near-maximal levels, which increases the body's metabolism, and allows for burning more calories compared to traditional steady state cardio training

Stretch & Abs

To complete the workout, we'll hit abs and stretch. How much, depends on 1. The preceding session 2. The speed you get through said session 🙂

This will depend on your individual goals and effort put into the sessions, but as a  personal trainer it is my job to set realistic expectations and track progress towards your goals.

It depends on your goals, starting fitness level, and effort put into the sessions, but a personal trainer can help you set a plan and track progress towards your goals.

Each personal training session is tailored to your individual fitness level and goals, so it can be as challenging or as achievable as you desire. We will work together to find the right balance for you.

During your first session, I will conduct a fitness assessment to understand your fitness level, goals, and any specific needs or concerns. After that, you will be guided through a workout that is tailored to you.

It is recommended to eat a light meal or snack and to stay hydrated before a session. Also, it is important to let your me know about any injuries or health concerns you may have.

First and foremost I am a personal trainer in Penarth at AnyTimeFitness, however I do provide where necessary home visits, and roll on summer for some bootcamp training.
