Starting off as a steady two to three times a week gym goer I soon caught the Gym bug and found myself going 5x a week if not everyday. In my spare time I was reading up on new training methods and trying out new exercises it soon became apparent I was quite good at this gym malarkey. So the next step was almost the natural transition of things why not turn a hobby into my 9-5 job. “I’m sure other trainers will laugh at my naivety this job is anything but 9-5.”
What happened next…
I got qualified as a level 3 personal trainer and took the jump into the fitness industry. Safe to say my eyes were opened.
Walking into my first self employed PT position I was competing against other trainers with much more experience better physiques and most already had a well established client base. It was like my first day at school all over again, realising I didn’t know half as much as I thought I did it was a sink or swim moment.
I became a sponge soaking up all the different training methods, taking in as much information as I could from the other trainers around me. While also buzzing around the gym like a little worker bee offering back to back FREE sessions to people trying to show confidence in my own ability to get them results. My client base began to grow “thank god”.
Jumping forward a few years I was now writing programmes for people as far a field as London, training on average 7 clients a day and even doing the odd nutrition plan. I was busy and you could say a successful personal trainer.
BUT I WANTED MORE…
I decided I wanted to open a gym somewhere that could offer people that one to one interaction that corporate gyms seem too have lost touch with. Giving all members no matter what level of experience that personal touch with advice and guidance to get the best results whether having a personal training session or doing it solo.
THE WORKS FITNESS
Offering a warm welcome on every visit your not just a number on a membership form. All the staff know your name and what your wanting to achieve from coming to the gym. I wanted a staff basis of qualified personal trainers who had worked hard in the fitness industry to be on hand to help the members progress to their goals
The gym would offer a selection of machines and free weights to get everyone the physique they want.
One of my main goals was to get people off the hamster wheel cardio equipment and show them how beneficial just adding a small amount of weight training into there regime could really boost their results.
Ladies your not going to get massive lifting weights trust me building muscle is hard work and requires a lot of dedication. I’m still working on it myself.
So after much planning and tooing and throwing picking the equipment I felt was necessary to get results and not just fancy stuff to show off when possible new members come in to view the place. I felt like I had everything a top end gym run with a family like atmosphere would require. Sorry for those looking for a health spa that’s not use.
But If you want results and somewhere to work hard where we don’t judge and you pay with your pound of sweat on every visit. Then we are the gym for you.
If you want to come in and get your head down with your headphones on crack on.
If you want to come in and vent about your day at work between sets while shifting some tin fill your boots.
If you want to smash through some calories on the cardio equipment to make you feel better about last nights alcohol intake have at it.
Whatever your reason for coming we welcome all shapes, ages, sizes, colours and religions.
