Leicester Personal Training

Leicester personal trainer

The Concept personal training  was founded for one simple reason. We wanted to create the most effective method of personal training. Be careful – this is where our passion bubbles over and we have a tendency to leave behind the analytical approach, pragmatism and proven science that we apply to our clients! Other areas of this website describe why and how we’re different (dare we say better!) and how we get to know what our clients need. The aim of this page is to show you why training at UP is so different, and so effective.

To put it simply, we are obsessed with improving what we offer, and with remaining at the forefront of forward thinking, real-world applications of all aspects of physical conditioning. We eat, sleep and breathe health and fitness. We are on call 24/7.

We travel to learn from the best of the best. This shows in the spectacular results we achieve for our clients and for ourselves.

We are totally unique because we both talk the talk and walk the walk. Armchair experts abound (especially, sadly, in personal training), but we are top athletes, highly qualified and academic coaches and trainers. Many of us have Bachelors and Masters Degrees in sports science, and undertake further study to ensure we’re always at the cutting edge. We love what we do and are constantly learning and training ourselves. After all – if you can’t train yourself, who can you train?

The concept personal training was setup by individuals who are very passionate about performance and improving the human body. We are constantly driven by the incredible sense of fulfilment we feel when we help someone achieve their goals – no matter if they’re an elite athlete or a middle-aged housewife. We believe that it’s possible for anybody to  positively change themselves and their bodies, and we will move heaven and earth to ensure that each and every person who enters our premises leaves feeling happier, more confident, and healthier.

Leicester personal trainer We never impose our own goals on a client. We listen, advise and then coach with that specific goal in mind. We are not rent-a-friend trainers or here to put on a circus show.

We are here to get a very specific job done.

That job is the one that you set for us – to achieve your own unique version of improved health, fitness and/or physical appearance. We don’t stand back, in fact we get stuck right into every aspect of your life that you are prepared to open up to us. No other way is appropriate for the commitment and investment that you should be making in your health.

We hope this has given you an insight into the passion we feel for personal training. If we’ve got that across, we’ve managed to show you one of the biggest and most important traits you should be looking for in a personal trainer. If you’re still not sure about that energy, and how powerful it is, come and meet us and you’ll be left in no doubt.

How to reduce body fat quickly and naturally–the training program and diet plan I use to do it

marathon

fat

This is what a pound of body fat looks like

If you‟re looking for the best way to reduce body fat levels quickly and safely, then I‟m glad you’ve found this post and I strongly suggest you keep reading…

Because this is my free body fat reduction program that I have successfully used with 100s of clients over the years to easily reduce body fat percentage quickly, naturally and without losing muscle. It has worked for both men and women whether it is for an upcoming event or simply to reduce the excess belly fat that has accumulated over the years.

Firstly let’s get the numbers out of the way. 3500 kcal of stored energy reside in 1lbs of body fat. End of story. None negotiable.

Squashed into the pound of belly fat that you grasp in your hand is enough stored energy to move you through a full marathon and probably a little further. This is a problem. If you have ever tried to realistically expend 3500 Kcal you will know that its an insurmountable effort in itself. I would go as far as to say for most ‘average’ people trying to expend this volume of energy it won’t happen in 1, 2, 3, or even 4 attempts.

 

Say we take playing squash for an hour and remove 640 kcal we aren’t even a quarter of the way there. 3500/640 = 5.4 that’s 5 1/2 hours of squash to remove 3500kcal of energy. That’s some going by any standards. Its a similar story with most forms of exercise. They don’t really remove enough stored energy to tap into the fat reserves to demonstrate meaningful change over time.

A stone of stored body fat equates to 3500 Kcal x 14lbs = 49000 kcal or 76 hours of squash. Game over for most of us trying to lose the stone around the middle.

Moving on its own will not get you lean.

We are too efficient at moving to really chip away the fat stores and we will normally just burn out before the job is done. So this is where the correct diet comes into play. Remove enough Calories from your weekly intake to cause a deficit but not a system/hormonal shut down and we can start to cut the 3500kcal down much more efficiently.

Remove 250 kcal from your diet each day for a week and we drop 1750 kcal from the 3500 stored in 1 lb of body fat (giving us only half of the total to cut away) add this to 3 hours of squash or whatever you are doing exercise wise and we get an additional 1920kcal + 1750kcal giving 3670 kcal or just over a pound of body fat. Four weeks just over 4lbs. More realistic and sustainable.

To increase the effect of this process we can add the correct supplementation to further enhance the diet/exercise effect and start to really move things in the right direction…..The Myprotein fat burning stack will help provide support whilst you reduce body fat levels quickly and safely. The additional extras in the weight loss bundle will act as the icing on the cake keeping your body primed to tap into those excess fat stores giving you key ingredients to assist your diet plan.

Using quality products specifically formulated for the purpose of increasing fat loss will assist with the process but they will not do the job on their own, the exercise and diet program combined together will yield the best results.

The Zone diet plan is by far one of the most effective plans I have implemented with my clients. There is a free link below. Print and use the information contained in the link it will work to create a healthy calorie defecit.
