    How Long Does It Take?

    It depends upon your training goals and how much time you wish to commit to your training. At your first consultation the practicalities of what you want to achieve, what you do and don’t enjoy and how much time you can commit will be discussed and a weekly schedule will be drawn up.

    How often you have Personal Training and for how long are also variable. We recommend each Personal Training session is a minimum of 60 minutes. Our Trainers will also provide feedback on diet and other activities undertaken during the week, making recommendations that apply outside of your personal training session!

    We take the whole of your life into consideration.

  • Ante-Post Natal

    Ante-Post Natal

    Pregnancy is often a time when women become more interested in their health and fitness – often concerned about which activities, exercise and diet is best for them and their babies during those 40 weeks. Our teachers are fully trained and qualified in Ante-Post natal exercise.

    Helen Carpenter-Waters is a leading expert in Ante-Post Natal exercise. She has researched and written her teacher training course in Ante-Post Natal exercise, lecturing health and fitness students at FCOT (Farnborough College of Technology, OCR level 3, HND, BSC) and Pilates Training Solutions (OCR level3, REPS).
    Helen continuously reviews current research and practice and has trained 1000’s of ladies before, during and after childbirth.

    We follow the current RCOG and ACOG guidelines combining them with our own extensive knowledge and experience of working with pregnant and post natal ladies, both in our classes and one to one. We take an individual case/my case approach to working with our ante post natal clients

    Research has shown that being fit before, during and after pregnancy is a benefit for Mum and baby. The health and emotional benefits are extensive and well documented (although never guaranteed!)

    Benefits To Mum

    • Reduced risk of excess weight gain
    • Maintain/improve posture
    • Maintain and promote pelvic floor strength and control
    • Maintain/improve aerobic conditioning, muscular strength and endurance as well as flexibility

    • Reduced problems with breathing
    • Quicker return to former shape and fitness, post-partum and more likely to return to exercise post-partumAll of the above help in improving the feeling of wellbeing and increased self-esteem which reduces possible depression and anxiety and stress.

    Evidence suggests that exercise provides a protective effect against coronary heart disease, osteoporosis and hypertension with reduced risk of colon cancer and perhaps breast cancer.

    Our Objectives

    We assist all Mums to, irrespective of experience or fitness levels, get fit for pregnancy, labour and motherhood (all of which are challenging, physically and psychologically)

Sports massage is also key to resolving injuries such as sprains, strains and tears assisting a more complete recovery and restoring better function to affected areas. There are various techniques used to bring about improvement and each treatment is thorough and individualised.

  • NLP

    What is NLP?

    NLP is described by many as the study of human excellence. Its techniques are used by top athletes, successful business people and anyone who wants to achieve a happy and balanced life. NLP is one of the fastest growing areas of applied psychology.

    NLP is about how we think and behave, how we represent the world around us and how we interact with others. Our lifetime experiences affect the way we live our lives today and in our future this can be for the good or not so good! We can have entrenched beliefs and experiences that can hold us back stopping us from moving forward.

    Through the use of NLP a person can live their life the way they want to, achieving success in career, sports, fitness and relationships. They can improve their self-esteem and enjoy better physical and emotional health.

    NLP practitioners offer clients a huge variety of techniques, enabling them to move towards being the person they want to be, living the life that they want to live. On TV, NLP is being demonstrated and applied by Paul McKenna, Pete Cohen (GMTV) Derren Brown (Channel 4) and Anthony Robbins. Famous and highly successful people such as Bill Clinton, Lance Armstrong, Andre Agassi and Arnold Schwarzenegger have used NLP to achieve their goals and dreams

    And with UK Fitness Academy, you can too!

  • Life Coaching

    What Is Life Coaching?

    Essentially Life Coaching is a skilful, structured way of helping people move their lives forward, assisting individuals identify their desires, goals and dreams and help them find the answers that will lead them to success in every part of their lives. Coaching will highlight where clients have been, where they are today and concentrate on what they are willing and able to do, to get where they want to be in the future.

    Who Can Benefit From Coaching?

    Well everyone – unless you are completely happy and fulfilled in your personal and professional life. Our lives are fast and stressful.

    We can easily find ourselves incredibly successful in some areas of our lives but feeling unfulfilled, unhappy and often burnt out! Life coaching will help you achieve a better life balance and deal with issues that are not moving you towards the “you”, you want to be, and living the life you want!

    How Does It Work?

    Life coaching is not something you sign up to forever. You may have short term goals that may only take a few sessions, or long term ones that require more – you choose. Your coach will advise, but ultimately you’re going to be in the driving seat!

    I’m So Busy, How Can I Find The Time?

    Life coaching can be undertaken face to face or over the phone, reducing the amount of time you need to set aside. Appointments can be arranged that last between 30-60mins.

As a keen club runner I had become frustrated at a number of recurring running injuries. After seeing a variety of different physios and chiropractors, with varying degrees of success but no complete solution, I was recommended to Helen. Helen took a different approach to other practitioners, looking at the whole body structure, core strength and flexibility and initially recommending a programme based around my basic posture, rather than the actual location of the pain. Following the exercises and programmes recommended by Helen I have managed to stay injury free for over 18 months, and am able to train at increasing levels of intensity. Thank you!
