Consultations with Helen can be carried out face to face, over the telephone, or both. After this, she recommends some simple fitness tests for her to gain a clear picture of your fitness level, likes and dislikes to exercise and an idea of the goals you are looking to achieve. From this, she will work on a programme that will include additional exercise/training through the weeks as your “homework”. (Training on your own during the week is important to the success of your training with Helen if you are seeing her once a week, or less).
Where possible, training will take place outside, either in a public area or private garden, depending on your preferences.
There are many different exercises available to try and sequences to push even the fittest athlete. Helen uses a variety of equipment of different weights and resistance but often finds that simple body weight exercises are the most effective, for building strength, power and range of movement.
Each training session will typically involve a balanced set of exercises, working cardio-vascularly (walking, running, skipping etc), strength training, core stability, balance and flexibility, to give a complete “all-body” workout.
