Julie M Fitness - What I Offer
Do you have a goal that you want to achieve? Do you prefer to exercise at home or outside but are unsure of what to do? Do you want to stay away from a busy gym? Personal Training will help you with your motivation, accountability and work towards achieving your goals. I can help you with helping to improve your health, weight loss, training for sport events, general health and fitness or special health requirements.
As of 2020 I am happy to offer virtual Personal Training sessions at a booked time via any of the video calling methods. This gives you flexibility and an additional bonus of being able to bring me anywhere you go (business trips, to the beach or on holiday) so you don't have to miss out on your Personal Training sessions.
My passion is empowering people to get active and changing their lifestyles so they can live a longer healthier life. I believe everybody should exercise, and the older you get the more important it is to exercise. The first step is contacting me, then I will book a consultation with you. I use the consultation process to discover your goals, find out about your nutritional needs, discuss any injuries or ailments if you have any and assess your fitness and strength levels so I can create a plan specifically for you.
Couple Personal Training
Get together with a partner or a friend and train alongside them to help with support and motivation. These sessions are still created for each individual persons needs. This is a cost-effective way of personal training as the cost gets split in half.
Home Fitness Plans
Want a little bit of accountability, or do you feel like if you had a fitness plan that suited you, you would find it be easier to work out on your own at home?
For a smaller cost I can create you a home plan with an optional weight and measurement option to keep you accountability and so we can assess your progress. This can be for strength and cardio.
If you are a self-motivated person this option would suit you for a one off cost, or to go alongside your one-on one Personal Training sessions.
Parkinsons and Multiple Sclerosis Exercise Classes
I have been training people with Parkinsons Disease since 2014 and a qualified coach of Counterpunch Parkinsons since 2016. I run a 'Movers and Shakers' class on a Wednesday from 10am to 11am plus a Counterpunch Boxing class on a Friday from 10am to 11am every week of the year.
The Movers and Shakers class includes cardio, strength, functional movement exercises and stretching specifically for people with Parkinsons disease. The Counterpunch Boxing class includes a warm up, boxing moves using freestanding boxing bags and boxing gloves finishing with a stretch at the end.
We ensure you are well monitored at each session, so always have at least 2 instructors at the classes, including Mike and myself. Mike is an ex Black Belt Kickboxer and brings a wealth of knowledge to the group and I was trained by Neil Monzari, Shane Cameron and Lisa Gombinsky in Boxing. We have recently included Multiple Sclerosis clients in our Wednesday Movers and Shakers class.
Nutrition Support and Guidance
For most people, weight loss is difficult. This is because 80% of weight loss is due to the choices we make around food and drinks. While exercise is essential in a weight loss programme, it is the eating that we must learn to control. Have you got your nutrition right? Whether it is for a sports event, weight loss or general nutrition I can help you by looking at your current eating and analyze how to benefit your health using a holistic approach; changing your lifestyle, rather than dieting. Remember, It’s what you eat most of the time that gets you results, not what you eat sometimes.
