Your programme will include physical exercise in a safe and structured manner. Every session, we aim to improve your cardiovascular fitness and muscular strength. Small and sustainable changes are implemented into your daily routine each week, that become healthy habits for life.
You will be given information and guidance about nutrition – how to improve your current diet AND make it tasty. Our aim is to help you eliminate the unhealthy food felons: trans fats, highly processed foods and added sugars. We show you how to do this without crash dieting and without having to eat boring or tasteless food. Guaranteed weight loss and habits that will be with you for life.
Throughout your programme, you will have regular assessments - this means that you will be measured at regular ‘check points’ to ensure you are achieving the results that you want and need. Below are some case studies of people with a variety of clinical conditions and the results they achieved.
It’s essential that we talk through your programme before you commence to ensure that we have every chance of success. Our personalized programme needs to suit your personality, working hours, social life, past experience and of course your likes and dislikes.
Going through every aspect in great detail is crucial to you enjoying and succeeding in your programme. We need you to be committed to your health for the long term and understand that this is a lifestyle, not a quick fix.
You will need to make healthy eating and exercise a priority. This does not need to take up too much of your valuable time. In fact, when you are fitter and eat better you will become MORE efficient and have MORE time to do the things you enjoy.
Our programmes are for those who are committed to living a long and healthy life and are willing to make the changes needed to achieve this.
If you have a medical condition then a referral from your doctor is very helpful. Alternatively, with your permisssion we can contact your doctor or hospital to find out more about your condition to ensure your safety throughout your programme. We will then work with your doctor to develop a programme suited to your current health and treatment. If you don't currently see a doctor regular and have no prior health condition then you may join our programmes with your consent.
Yes - with your permission, our programme will give regular progress reports to your doctor. You will also receive a copy of these progress reports. We perform regular reassessments to keep track of your acheievements and can also adapt your programme based on these results.
The exercise sessions will involve alternating between cardiovascular work (raising the heart rate) and weight (resistance) exercises. The exercise sessions will be circuit based and will involve rotation around number of exercise stations. This means that we can maximise each session. We will always work to your ability and all exercises are safe and structured to you and your health.
You can train at our private studio at East Molesey, Surrey (KT8). Alternative, Angela can travel to you in London or Surrey (travel levy applies).
There is a wealth of evidence to prove that physical activity plays a key role in improving people's health and well-being. Patients who attend cardiac rehab reduce their risk of complications and recover faster. Research has shown that people who exercise regularly reduce their risk of developing cancer and diabetes.
Physical activity can also improve your psychological well-being and mood, decreasing your risk of depression and improving your mental health and quality of life.
There are a wide range of benefits to be made from participating in physical activity, both physical and emotional.
