Clients hire personal trainers for different reasons. They may not have time to drive to the gym 3-5 times a week, shower and then drive to work. They may not like the gym atmosphere and may find it intimidating especially for those people just starting out on this new journey. Or they may have been given or purchased equipment with the express intent to start a programme and don't know where to begin.

Some typical questions are:

  • What is hypertrophy?
  • What is strength endurance? Do I need it?
  • What is functional strength?
  • How do I lose weight or change my body shape by lifting heavy things and putting them back down again?
  • There are so many diets out there it is confusing, can you simplify things for me?

Muscle Mass

Muscle mass or hypertrophy as it is known in weight training circles, is the task of lifting weights over a period of time with the express intent to increase the size and strength of muscle fibers. More muscle equals faster metabolism and increases the body's ability to burn fat.

All too often athletes or body builders spend hours in the gym sweating and toiling for little or no results. That is because of a lack of understanding of these four basic components of training.

1. A sound weight training programme designed for your body type and goals.
2. Proper nutritional guidance that will promote growth whilst maintaining good health.
3. Rest. That's right rest. Sleep is necessary to make gains.
4. Managing your hormones to effectively gain mass or lose body fat.

Ramsden Training can provide you with the professional guidance you need.

Strength Endurance
Strength endurance is a key component of many sports and activities but is also for someone doing repetitive work place activities where we absolutely need to be strong to reduce the likelihood of injuries and missed time from work. Training for endurance strength is not the same as training for mass or speed.

Load parameters, rest time, the speed at which you perform the exercises must all be taken into consideration. Nutrition for distance sports is different than that for gaining mass.

Explosive Power
Athletes will certainly want to get the maximum benefit from a training programme. Learn to develop explosive power incorporating proven methods of complex training to your workout routine to develop exceptional speed-strength.

Weight Loss
If you just want to lose a few pounds to "cut" down for your event or if you are seriously overweight and need help, Ramsden Training will guide you through the process and get results.Billions of dollars are spent each year on the latest fad products. Many of these diets will sacrifice muscle mass. Many of the aids will sacrifice performance or health. Don't fall victim to mass media hype.
