So you’re thinking of hiring a Personal Trainer in Cheshire or Manchester?
Most of us think of sporty young types, whipping you into shape, and making you young, fit and healthy again.
My experience, and what I have to offer, is quite different from that. I’ve had a few friends and colleagues who’ve tried personal fitness trainers. Guess what? They tried it. They stopped. They never did it again.
Often when people start a new fitness regime, you can overwork, become injured, and stop exercising.
The amount of my clients who come to me complaining of back and neck ache after being forced to ‘go the extra’ on a badly designed and fitted exercise bike or rowing machine astounds me.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some excellent, really excellent personal trainers out there.
They look after you and nurture you, they gradually increase your capacity for exercise. The emphasis is on quality rather than quantity. I’m looking forward to working with one, I could do with a little less tummy myself!
Alexander Technique teachers, however, train for three years to teach you how to interact mindfully with exercise, with work and with play. To teach you where your joints are, what they do, how you move, how you do every little thing you do, each and every day. Without pulling a muscle or putting your back out.
I can definitely say without hesitation that I wouldn’t have had the rowing success that I have had the luxury of experiencing in my short time on the water, without finding the AT and the great teachers that I have had the privilege to work with.
