Q&A With Dave the Trainer
Personal Trainer Tips to Help Your Fitness Resolutions
It’s the start of another year and it’s inevitable that a lot of people will be about to embark on fitness resolutions. Because of this I thought it would be a good time to introduce one of the trainers I work with closely at Fitness First Elizabeth Street. Dave is a fantastic trainer with a wealth of knowledge and experience. If you are about to embark on a fitness kick, getting some personal trainer tips and guidance from Dave could be a great way to embark on your fitness journey.
Q: How long have you been a PT at Elizabeth Street Fitness First?
A: 5 years (Started December 2012)
Q: What is your training philosophy?
A: When it comes to training itself, I believe in creating a balanced plan that allows people to move freely and comfortably for life. Beyond this, I believe everyone is capable of more than they see in themselves, so I set out to inspire them to believe in their own ability so they can live a life where anything is possible.
Q: What are you focusing on with your own training and your clients training?
A: I have always focused on mobility and strength as a core part of my own training and my client’s progress. It sets a foundation that allows us to move in anyway we need to, to get the results we want. Recently I have combined this with a mindset approach that allows people to reach for targets that are beyond their perceived limits. This sets us out on a path that means we will do the work required to achieve results that would have gone begging in the past.
Q: What is your recommended recovery and maintenance program for yourself and your clients?
A: Having a strong network of experts around you is important. Along with a balanced training plan, it’s invaluable to have people who can either keep your body right, so you can stay consistent, or fix you when you break down. I invest in Chiropractic and Deep tissue massage because this combination keeps me on top of my game physically. I recommend my clients to either or both of these, to keep them together, so we can consistently work through our training plan. Stress is also a big part of life these days, so I recommend techniques like meditation and mindfulness activities that can alleviate stress.
