Want a Summer Six-Pack? Try a Personal Trainer

If you’re fed up with your flagging fitness routine or you’re lacking the motivation to reach your goals, investing in a Personal Trainer could provide you with the support and inspiration you’re looking for. Here’s ten good reasons why you need a PT at the YMCA Club.

1. Qualified and experienced fitness professionals

Most of the Club’s PTs have trained and qualified through YMCAfit – one of the UK’s leading and oldest fitness training providers. With over 35 years’ experience training Personal Trainers, you can be sure that all of our PTs are a safe pair of hands:

“I qualified at the Club with YMCAfit – the centre of excellence. The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable. I work where they benchmark the industry standards.” (Tino Constantouris, Personal Trainer)

2. Fast results, but realistic goals

Our PTs want you to own your fitness journey and set your own realistic goals, rather than be told what to do. This approach means you could see results in as little as four weeks.

3. A great space to train

The award-winning YMCA Club is the biggest gym in central London. We have equipment for every type of exercise and our PTs know exactly how to get the best out of it:

“We’ve got everything in the Club - functional equipment to help you in every-day life, resistance machines, big floor space, HIIT training, free weights room, studios and boxing based stuff. We’ve got all the equipment you need to cater for your goals.”     (Tom McDonnell, Personal Trainer)

4. Making exercise fun

Exercise doesn’t have to be a hard slog. Our PTs know how to make your training fun.

5. Relationship is king

You are an individual. You are not on a conveyor belt. Our PTs are good at listening and know that everyone is different. They will work you hard, but they will not judge you. Once they gain your trust, they will know how to motivate you.

“My clients love me because PT is based on relationships. It's not just about fitness - I become their friend and have their full trust. Relationship is very important.” (Ernesto Ortino, Personal Trainer)

6. Effective use of time

An hour or half hour session doesn’t seem like a long time, but your PT will know exactly how to structure that precious commodity to address your goals. Every minute will be used effectively!

7. Preventing injury

With our PTs designing and monitoring your bespoke training, you reduce the risk of getting injured during your work out.

8. Sound nutrition advice

Nutrition is a science, but our knowledgeable PTs know which combination of foods in the right quantity, at the right time work best to support your training regime.

9. Accountability

Working out on your own can be lonely, but not with our PTs! Besides creating your programme and motivating you, they make sure you keep on track to help you reach your goals:

“When I work with people on their journeys, they become the best version of themselves.” 
(Magda Bednarek, Personal Trainer)

10. Affordability

PTs are not just for the rich and famous or top athletes. Our PTs work with people just like you! That’s any age and any level of fitness. YMCA Club PT sessions are around £50 per hour. Other gyms charge double that. Why not invest in YOU today?

“Your health and well-being are worth it! A good PT provides excellent value for money. It’s all about priorities - far more money can be squandered on take-aways!” (Teresa Waite, Personal Trainer)
