Most London gyms are overcrowded and 80% of the space is used for cardiovascular equipment such as treadmills, cross trainer, bikes etc and are simply not geared up for personal training sessions.
Mobile Personal Training Versus Gyms
Having worked in them myself I often found it hard to get on the equipment I wanted with my client because it was already being used by someone else. This meant I constantly had to adjust my sessions ultimately giving my clients what was available not what they needed.
Its very easy as a trainer in a gym to stick your client on a treadmill or cross trainer for 10 mins to warm up but honestly, is this what you pay for? Personally if my clients want to pay me to take to them for a run I would tell them to do it on their own.
Personal Training Should Be An Education
Personal training should be an education on how to train whilst getting the exact results you want in an achievable timescale. The solution is mobile personal training.
Mobile personal training means you get a personal trainer that comes to wherever you want to train and brings the equipment needed to train you, simple. That said however as in any sector there are good and bad trainers.
I see so many people working out with trainers in the park using little or no equipment. If you want an hour’s session of lunges and push ups then go to a group fitness class.
To conclude, mobile personal training saves you the time of going to the gym, gives you far more variety, and with the right company you will get much better trainning for your money.
Are a gym person? Do you have the motivation to go at it alone? Maybe you need the push from a personal trainer, whichever your personal preference we would like to hear your views in the comments below.
