Online Training Session

Fitness is individual – everyone has different targets and different starting levels. Therefore, the training programme you need to achieve your desired goals will naturally vary from person to person. That’s why Picks PT take a highly individual approach, designing a personalised training programme for each client. This ensures that the programme is right for the client and has their individual aims for their fitness in mind. To help you understand the way that we approach training, we’ve put together this guide on how to design a fitness programme.

1. Think about your goals

You can’t proceed with a fitness programme if you don’t know what you want to get out of it. The first step to defining your programme is to identify what your goals are. Do you want to lose weight, prepare for an event like a marathon, or simply improve your general health? Setting clear goals, as well as choosing a timeframe for achieving them, will keep you motivated on your journey.

2. Build a balanced exercise routine

For good overall fitness, it’s important that your routine covers all the major muscle groups. Aim to do strength training exercises for each muscle group at least twice a week. You’ll need to choose a variety of different exercises to target different areas of the body. Exploring a range of different activities will also help to prevent you from getting bored.

It’s also important to balance higher and lower intensity exercises so that your body isn’t overworked. If having an exercise programme is new for you or you’re recovering from an injury, remember to start slowly and build up as you get stronger.

  1. Make fitness part of your routineFor a fitness programme to be successful you need to be committed. Schedule in time for exercise just like you would with any other type of appointment that you don’t want to miss or fit other activities around your fitness schedule. If you’re really struggling to stay committed by yourself, you might benefit from joining a personal training group. Working with a PT or taking part in group coaching sessions helps to keep you accountable and make sure you stick to your programme.

4. Take time for recovery

You’re often full of enthusiasm when you start a new fitness programme, but this can lead to you overdoing it and not giving your body a chance to rest. Ultimately this can cause injury, so make sure you factor rest days into your fitness programme and allow your body some time to recover in between fitness sessions. This will help you to build up your strength and stamina.

Work Hard – Train Hard – Play Hard.
