Years ago at another gym group. Back then I stopped because my PT was not very supportive, there was more criticism than encouragement.
What did you normally do in the gym before you started with Christine?
Mostly I would do classes – Zumba™, aerobics, general body conditioning – with the odd bit of extra cardio stuff on the bike or rowing machine. I had never lifted a weight or done any running (I don’t even run for buses). I probably went 3 or 4 times a week to different classes and sweated a lot but didn’t see much in the way of any progress in changing shape. I’ve spent a decade battling to keep my weight under control, and losing more often than winning so I decided to take a new approach.
What are the 3 key benefits you’ve found from working with your PT?
A more focussed approach to exercise and fitness
More motivation through agreed targets and having my progress checked regularly
No more starvation diets!
What exercise or area do you feel you’ve improved on the most?
Difficult to say as so much has improved overall, but probably the biggest leap is in my upper body strength in particular
How would you sum up your PT in a sentence?
Chrissy is the perfect combination: highly professional, very motivational and a jolly good laugh – she’s even got me running for the first time in my life!
