Why do they feel the need to call themselves celebrity personal trainers?

 

Celebrity Personal Trainers

Celebrity personal trainers.

So do celebrities get different training or a higher level of training from there personal trainers? Do they F@@k! It is simply a term that is handed about by trainers who happen to stumble across a celebrity as a client, no more, no less. If the personal trainer in question has a PR agent as a client for example, they me teamed up with said celebrity to increase the celebrities image etc or even for the interest of a future release of an exercise DVD. Or the celebrities PR agent may seek out a personal trainer to keep them in shape. the level of the celebrities fame does correlate to the personal trainers skill or knowledge! A bad trainer could be working with anyone.

Bottom line famous or not, the human body is the human body. You cannot create a gold or platinum package depending on the client. Fat loss and muscle gain is fat loss and muscle gain whether its on a celebrity or Joe Bloggs. The point which should make your personal trainer stand out is … have they got you that fat loss and muscle you wanted? Regardless of your social status.

How to take a personal training client from fat to thin, skinny to muscular in a short time whether they are male or female, that’s the key to being one of the best personal trainers in London, the UK and the world.

Working with a clients individual  genetics and understanding there problems with bio-mechanics or muscular imbalances. For example the vast majority of male personal training clients are looking to build muscle fast and lose fat. How this is approached differs from client to client. A rep, set and weight range that works for one person might not work for the next.

Is he Ecto / Endo or Mesomorph?

Is she apple / pear / straight up and down or curvy?

Different shapes are going to require different strategies of training to even out the body,  strip weight and build muscle. Is the personal training client gifted at exercise? Or are they going to take a few weeks of neuro-muscular (mind/muscle) connection training to get the full benefits of training.

Example: If your male/female client cant produce a full squat without falling forward, knees caving in, heels raising and lowering only a few inches. Then guess what? There’s issues that have to be addressed before shes going to achieve the best result possible.

If your a client and your personal trainer is just throwing you on the leg press every session, ask yourself this. Why am i not squatting, deadlifting and lunging first?

Top 10 personal trainers London. Some advice for training your legs.

Top 10 Personal Trainers  London

Is leg training your favorite or worse day of the week? Have you forgotten your legs? They are underneath you!

Neglecting your legs could be your down fall!  Training legs will give you a great over all physique, raise your testosterone and even out your look.

Squats, be it back or front use up all the major muscle groups of the lower body – hamstrings, quads, glutes, calves and even the lower aspects of the erector spinae. Using these muscles in one exercises creates a hormonal release “testosterone”. The more testosterone you have the better your muscle building potential for the rest of your workouts (upper body).  Rule number 1 of any training regime that your using to create optimal hormonal response is maximal lifts in the compound exercises first. So make sure in your squat sessions your lifting 70-90% of your maximum and use a periodised program so that you cover all rep, set and tempo ranges and keep the muscle guessing.

Mixing up the leg workouts is a great way of keeping yourself or the client interested in the session. We have all been there, leg sessions are tough and painful and very draining on the nervous system if your training at the right intensity. Combining heavy back squats or front squats then going into uni-lateral movements – lunge variations, then hit it with plyometric jumps either onto a box or tuck jumps for example.

Another great introduction to the leg session (if you have the space) are tractor tyre flips, sled pulls and farmers walks. These are great for filling out your leg sessions. A change of tempo and non-standard equipment is good for keeping spark going during leg day.

Total body muscle growth will be achieved if you train legs at least twice a week. Using all the above tips of mixing the workouts up, always training heavy compound exercises first and utilizing all rep, set and tempo ranges.

Train at the studio in Shoreditch. Come down and find out the difference between your standard weekly training routine and my brand of intense sick at the back of your throat style training.

I use a mix of Strongman, Poliquin and MMA training to achieve great results with clients. All these combined create a great mix for fat loss and muscle gain the 2 most sort after results by far. The trick to my training is hard heavy lifting (keeping good form) using big compound exercises, with short bursts of sprints or other intense cardio systems.

Train for what your body was designed for – heavy pulling, squatting and pressing. All three systems Poliquin, adjusted strongman for the gym and MMA training will utilize these 3 variations of training. You can easily combine them for example deadlift straight into pull ups, squats straight into overhead presses. Keeping these principals in mind will create a superior body composition, a leaner and stronger physique.

 

Training with strongman, Poliquin or MMA techniques is simple, lift heavy bars or dumbbells for distance, height and faster, or for repetitions.  If done correctly, it will take you to a new level of training. You’ll learn how to deal with pain and start training through plateaus like never before!  Add these types of training sessions into your weekly routine and see the difference in your strength and body composition.

How do you sum up health and fitness for women?

Girls do cardio and men lift weights, right? … WRONG!

Most female clients that come through my door are looking for weight and fat loss.

First thing I say is – throw out your bathroom scales and concern yourself with body fat only. If your total mass does not decrease but your body fat drops 5-10% in 12 weeks, I have done my job.

Weight loss … or fat loss?

You see, muscle weighs 3 times more than fat! All my female clients lift heavy weights to encourage muscle stimulation, muscle tone and a firmer appearance (rather than what we call in the industry “skinny fat”). This creates a lean, fat-free, toned look, but may mean that the bathroom scales remain the same.

Lifting weights also offsets osteoporosis in women which is a great side benefit.

With this style of training and look comes rapid and efficient fat loss. This means the ‘weight watchers’ style of dieting (where you’re on the scales every 5 minutes) becomes irrelevant. So, unless you are clinically obese, your weekly weight is of no concern to me and it shouldn’t be to you either. It’s just that it has become a must for women to weigh themselves, almost like a female standard.

What’s ‘skinny fat’?

In the personal training industry this term is used for weight loss, but without toning and training the muscle at the same time. What you end up with is something like this:

This picture represents a slim lady and I’m sure she’s happy with the weight she sees on the bathroom scales. However what the image says to me is a lack of weight training. No squats, lunges, dead-lifts, hip extensions etc.

So my question would be, is she happy with her bum?

Long distance cardio … or weight training and HIIT?

Girls. Doing long distance cardio is a waste of time. Just think of the thousands of women right now around the world who are toiling away on a cross trainer, treadmill or bike for hours on end, and after several months losing nothing. Long term cardio has been shown to be an inefficient form of weight loss.

You should be doing  a combination of weight training and high intensity cardio (HIIT). This combo is a guaranteed fat stripper.

Now before you rush down your local gym and start throwing weights around, please see a fitness professional for some advice and guidance on how to lift weights. I have seen hundreds of women (over 11 years in the industry), walking round a gym with  a couple of 1-2 kg dumbbells in their hands, doing the occasional bicep curl or tricep kick backs. This can be even more of a waste of time than long distance cardio if you don’t know what you’re doing.

I know we have a DIY culture here in the UK but seriously, see a fitness professional for some expert advice!

Hormones affect body fat!

One important consideration is your hormone balance. I recommend that all female clients have their hormone balance checked out. This can be done via “bio-signature” modulation or through blood testing.

What you eat affects your body composition, but where you store fat and how your body loses it is controlled by your hormones. Control the hormone and you control the fat!

Of course if you’re on the contraceptive pill, this is a major factor. The pill has such an impact on my results with female clients, that I no longer guarantee results with women who are on it. The pill contains around 35-50 micro grams of oestrogen per pill, which massively throws out your oestrogen / progesterone balance. This increases fat storage on your quads, hamstrings and triceps … bingo wings!

It can also be useful to have a food allergy test. This will tell you if you’re becoming inflamed or bloated, or having problems digesting certain food groups.
