Bespoke Personal Training

Sutton Sports Injury and Physio clinic offers a Bespoke Personal Training programme as part of our multi-disciplinary approach to the management of sports injuries and musculoskeletal disorders.

What Is Personal Training?

Personal training is supervised 1-2-1 or small group physical exercise to assist in various aspects of health and well-being.

Personal trainers are qualified exercise professionals who can help with various aspects of health and well-being, from weight loss, to strength and endurance training or late stage recovery following injury and improving sports performance. Personal trainers come from many different backgrounds such as gyms and studio-based training, sport, massage therapy or strength and conditioning.

There is no typical personal trainer as education and experience differs with the individual. Most personal trainers are now registered on the REPS accreditation scheme which guarantees a minimum level of education and competency and many have incorporated training systems such as Pilates, Yoga, TRX, boxing, speed/agility and others into their repertoire.

 

What Is Bespoke Personal Training?

Bespoke Personal Training takes in to account the unique needs and requirements of the individual to help plan, implement and maximise the benefits of physical training.

Here at Sutton Sports Injury and Physio Clinic our personal trainer is Kieran O’Connor. Kieran can work independently with clients, or as required, in conjunction with one of our highly skilled physiotherapists to ensure that interventions are tailored not only to the individual but also to the specific requirements of an injury and recovery plan.

Kieran has a long history of working in the fitness industry and has achieved numerous qualifications in areas such as kettlebells, suspension training, spinning, nutrition and weight management, core/abs, strength training, pad work and more. Kieran is also our resident Sports Massage Therapist and as such has studied anatomy to a higher level giving him great understanding of the human body.

With his particular skills, experience and the ability to work alongside our physiotherapists, Kieran is ideally placed to produce Bespoke Personal Training Plans to achieve the maximum potential benefit for his clients.

 

What Does Personal Training Involve?

Personal training does not come in a standard format and Bespoke Personal Training is all about getting the recipe right for the individual.

If strength and endurance is seen as the main problem, then this is the focus. If weight-loss is the main aim then the plan will be slightly different. Combined approaches are very common, but it is all about the clients goals and requirements.

All training sessions will involve some form of physical exertion and that may be cardio exercise, stretching, strength training, power training, speed and agility or most likely a unique combination of these to suit the individual.

Before the commencement of any personal training each person’s individual goals and aims will be discussed as well as any physical issues or impairments that may be present. This will typically be done in the form of a health questionnaire. If the training is following on from a period of physiotherapy then the therapist and trainer will meet to discuss the needs of the client before the training starts.

 

What Can Personal Training Help With?

The simple answer is that is up to you, the client.

With our individualised approach and programmes we work to achieve your aims and goals, that is why each personal training session, group or block will be preceeded by a short assessment to better understand your needs. This then helps to create truly Bespoke Personal Training

 

What Should I Wear?

Physical training can be hot and sweaty so wear something appropriate to work-out and sweat in. Our studio is small but very well equipped with aircon but it can get hot. Showers are available in the main centre but not in the Clinic itself.

Always bring water and a towel with you and ensure that you have had something to eat approximately an hour or two before the session.

 

How Long Do Sessions Last?

All sessions are for one hour and can be 1-2-1 or in small groups of up to 6 people maximum.

Assessments are for 30 minutes to discuss needs, aims and goals as required.

 

How Much Will It Cost?

Please refer to our price list for up-to-date costs. Discounts are available for bulk bookings, please ask at reception for details.

Bespoke Personal Training is self-funded only and cannot be claimed against medical insurance unless your policy explicitly says so.
