Our personal training sessions are 60 minutes in length. They comprise a warm-up at the beginning, a work section in the middle and finally a cool down at the end.
Your initial session with us is an assessment, used alongside the online PARQ (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire) you already completed and the early conversation with the MP team you would have had to discuss goals etc.
From then on your programme and personal training sessions can adapt each time you train depending on how you are that day, energy levels, what you achieved that week.
The elements that make up our personal training sessions
The following elements are commonly featured in our sessions:
this bodyweight training system uses no equipment. So it’s easy to learn and highly effective for all fitness levels
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
a workout programme that combines short, intense training periods with longer, recovery periods

Strength Endurance Training
all the benefits of strength training (weight loss, muscle tone) without lifting very heavy weights
includes static stretching to increase flexibility, dynamic and ballistic stretching to prepare for exercise, and passive stretching during the cool-down to reduce muscle stiffness
sharpens up an overlooked skill that is useful in day-to-day life. Includes single leg work, closing eyes or working on unstable surfaces

multi-directional movements develops motor ability and control, reduces chances of injury, increase body confidence and adds an element of fun to sessions
ever-popular boxing-style training. Includes rope work and full body conditioning. Intense, quick and stress-relieving
effective way of developing cardiovascular, strength and flexibility through swinging a cast-iron weight
elastic bands you hold and either push or pull with. Can add a challenging resistance to almost any exercise and from any angle
Sprint (Speed) Training
an athletic challenge that burns many calories, develops muscle and increases your body’s work capacity
Aerobic & Anaerobic Training
cardio + strength at the same time
teaches you control of movement from the very centre of your body. Improves exercise performance and help reduce daily pains such as low back pain
explosive jumping movements that burns calories
holding exercises that can benefit exercise newbies, older clients and those carrying joint injuries
Remember that each of our trainers has their own unique training philosophy (all built on solid exercise physiology and science, experience and common sense). So if you had any questions on why you’re doing a certain exercise, or requests about trying something new – just ask!
