How it REALLY is at The Studio Trainer.

THIS IS US. *DISCLAIMER - I am a dedicated and knowledgeable personal trainer and radiographer. I have completed various levels of study and received accompanying and recognised qualifications to train groups, individuals, elderly and children. I have nothing but...

Team Sports Over Screens

I have a confession. I think I have become obsessed with it. I do it nearly every day- whether morning, night or afternoon and depending on my mood, I can be very private or very social about it. Sometimes- only SOMETIMES I yell and shout and I do it up to three...

Family is the most important thing in life

Behind the scenes.

BEHIND THE SCENES..... Last night I trained a gorgeous bunch of girls. One of those sessions I really look forward to! Half way through the session, I realised with guilty conscience that I was just standing in front of them saying 'ready set go' . Sometimes I even...

THE FIRST WEEK-OPERATION 'RECOMPOSE'

The first week of my challenge has flourished- thanks for asking! Endeavouring to recompose this body of mine, amongst school holidays, renovating a bathroom and dealing with the fact that the hot weather is gone, I reckon I'm up to par. Of course, even within one...

MY CHALLENGE. ARE YOU WITH ME?

As a personal trainer, wife and mum I am forever thinking about the needs and wants of everyone around me. Am I providing a great training session, tailored to that particular client? Am I looking after my family, hiding the green bits in the cooking well enough...

AM I BORING YOU?

I thought I had a real problem as a trainer. Had I lost my magic mojo? Had I done the wrong thing? Was I really THAT boring? It happened with nearly EVERY client and I started to get a complex. Was there something amiss with my performance? WHY? WHY was everyone...

THROW THE SCALES AWAY

Every week I hear it.   "I'm not losing any weight!". "The scales aren't moving". .....and as a trainer- I'm sick of it! While I always say 'don't go by the scales' and 'go by your clothes' or 'have you ever had a body composition scan?' -here is my PROOF! Here is...

THE BODY'S ENERGY SYSTEMS

As a personal trainer there's a little saying I often throw at clients. It goes something like "let's wait for the lactate to flush out and then we'll go again (not me but them!)". I'm sure they bristle when they hear my little quote- in fact some call me...

"BAD BACKS"

"I've got a bad back". It's a phrase I hear weekly, if not daily. The term "bad" can be used to describe a number of conditions when it comes to the vertebral column. Disc herniation, rupture, degeneration. Kyphosis, lordosis and scoliosis. Sciatica, pinched...

Are standing desks worthwhile?

As The Studio Trainer, I don't need to look far to realize that 'sitting is bad for your health'. While some say 'sitting is the new smoking', I hesitate to support this slogan with complete vigour. So many workers are asking- 'Are standing-desks worthwhile?'. I DO...
