THE CONSULTATION

Your initial consultation is free of charge, this includes doing a general health and fitness analysis and gives me the chance find out more about what your goals and what I can do to help you achieve these. This also gives you the chance to meet me and ask any questions you may have long before we decide if we are right for each other.

DOES IT MATTER HOW FIT I AM?

Not at all, I have helped all kinds of people improve their fitness, quality of life and physiques, from formation sky divers to post heart surgery patients wanting to lose weight. We all have to start somewhere and all of your sessions and workouts are designed progressively to suit you at each stage.

HOW LONG IS EACH SESSION?

Each session is 60 minutes long,  you should always be on time for your session ready to train at the agreed time to get the most out of your training. Most Administrative work is done in the trainers time. Please also be aware that if you are late for your session, I may not be able to overrun.

HOW FAST WILL I GET RESULTS?

This all depends how often you train and how committed you are to getting your results.If you  follow my instructions and are 100% focused, especially relating to any nutritional plan then you will feel better within just 1 week and see improvements within 2 weeks. The rate of weight loss will vary from client to client and is dependent upon your starting weight, gender and metabolism and most importantly good nutrition and how often they train. For best results, I advise clients to follow their chosen program guidelines for a minimum of 12 weeks.

CAN I TRAIN WITH A PARTNER?

Absolutely. Training with someone else can be a a lot of fun and helps in keeping motivated. And is also a way to keep the cost of training down.

WHAT EQUIPMENT AND CLOTHES DO I NEED IN ORDER TO TRAIN?

I will bring all the necessary fitness equipment for your workouts. If you already have fitness equipment that you would specifically like to use, I am happy to incorporate that into your workouts too. It is recommended to have some basic equipment such as resistance tubes for following a training program. You will need wear supportive trainers and workout clothing such as jogging bottoms and t-shirt and also recommend that you have a towel handy for your workout.

WHAT HOME IS QUITE SMALL, WILL THERE BE ENOUGH SPACE TO TRAIN?

The equipment that we personal trainers use is designed to be small, compact and portable. I have been training clients for years and have not come across a client’s home that is too small to train in. However, if you prefer to train outside, I can meet you in your local park or location of your choice.

*“Becoming fit and losing weight is an ongoing journey for me, and a very emotional one as well – and Elwyn has been a lifeline for me this year after I gained lots of weight during my pregnancy. I have already lost 20 pounds as a result of our training as well as Elwyn’s guidance in the food department – and we’re now focused on the next 20. Elwyn is a lovely guy and an extremely knowledgeable trainer who stays up to date and passes on what he learns. He is easygoing and friendly, but no nonsense at the same time. Elwyn plans challenging workouts that leave you aching but determined and I’m grateful for what he’s encouraged me to achieve. I have worked out with a number of trainers over the past 10 years, all with different approaches, and I would highly recommend Elwyn’s training style because it works, and it comes with a sincere interest in helping you achieve your goals.” Sonal, Tonbridge

*“After 5 months trekking through the Himalaya’s across the Nepal, I lost a lot of weight and grew an impressive beard. On my return I decided I wanted to increase my upper body strength and size specifically, and thought it would best to seek help from a professional so that I put on weight in the right places. I contacted Elwyn and started training almost immediately, my upper body has changed markedly and after 10 weeks I am very happy with my results. Although Elwyn can’t take the credit for my beard going, my physique has changed, my posture has improved and I have significantly enhanced my strength and stamina. I plan to go back into the mountains next year in even better shape. Thanks Elwyn.”
