Prioritising health over performance, even when performance is the goal.

personal training bristol
Exploring joint range of motion and effective aerobic protocols (Cardio) have become staples in my basis for programming. My premise is that, if the basic function of the machine is optimal then any change we wish to make will come more easily, simply because the body will react more predictably to the stimuli we expose it to and can recover quicker and more efficiently, allowing for more ...

Slowly, Slowly, catchee….

bristol personal trainer, redland,

Beware virus vigilantes

bristol personal trainer
Beware virus vigilantes; members of the public assuming the role of police, in seeking - in their eyes - breakers of Covid rules. Their penalty for behaviour that they don't like ranges from polite exchange to aggressive abuse. My client and I experienced the latter while exercising outdoors in a park.

Time on your own

I cannot overstate the value of spending time on my own in nature. I love to take in the beauty and it gives me the quiet space I need to recharge my mental batteries.
