"...there are so many personal trainers out there promising the world, but my advice is to do what I did and choose one qualified, with experience, a track record and someone you can trust" - Sion P, Client

Richards’ personal training is fundamentally bespoke and based upon a series of basic foundations. These impact on the fitness programme discussion, design and implementation for the individual(s).
PHYSICAL: relating to the body as opposed to the mind. In the case of personal training, it is the effect to the physical form that we are trying to affect through correct exercise, nutrition and lifestyle adjustment. The domino effect is that it will alter other states.
MENTAL: defined as “a state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
SOCIAL: often defined as relating to human society, the interaction of the individual and the group, or the welfare of human beings as members of society. Within a training scenario, it is to give an individual confidence and the will to want to interact with others better.
GOAL ORIENTATED: The definition of goal setting is the process of identifying something that you want to accomplish and establishing measurable goals and time-frames. How many times have you started on your fitness journey, with all the best intentions and yet failed to finish with a success? As your trainer, Richard is determined to support you to create both long term and short term goals that will serve as markers along the way to highlight progress. With a clear plan in place, training programs devised, nutritional advice given and targets to hit, all that is required to complete the tasks at hand is effort and consistency.
