Training Sessions

My training sessions vary from person to person day to day. No one person is the same, therefore neither are my workout programmes.

You will have a training plan designed specifically to your needs and your goals. This is after consultation session, fitness assessment aand body analysis. Lauren advise, assist and guide you, not make you do things you can’t or push you until you injure yourself. That is counter-productive. you’ll do specific training which will aim to get the most from your session, targeting the main muscle groups and working on areas specific to you. ‘I intend my sessions to be enjoyable as well as being planned and targeted, but will I ensure you sweat sufficiently and perform to the best of your ability, but still have leave feeling good’.

Training Ethos

The human body is a fascinating machine and you only get one!

After centuries of study new research is always published and still the general consensus is that human body is designed to help you, if you help it. The more you exercise your body systems the more effectively they work, even while you are sleeping or sitting. But it’s also understanding when and how to give yourself the correct amount of rest and recovery to avoid injury and speed the healing process. I see the body as a structure and every person is different. Your body is excellent at adapting and subconsciously will find the easiest way to perform any task. Therefore over using some muscles and barely contracting weaker/damaged muscles at all. This is caused mainly by injury or bad posture. If you were to stand up right now, in a relaxed state, see if you are standing exactly straight, are your toes pointing at the same angle? Are your foot arches the same or are you standing flat footed or on the sides of your feet? Is one foot facing slightly further outward? This is just an example, but many training errors and injury are caused through bad posture and lack of awareness. Training correctly, will ensure you can keep training for longer, you’ll notice a change in posture as well a body shape. I can help you achieve this without even you even thinking about it (eventually). I train with emphasis on creating lean, strong muscles around a stable and secure core and frame. I also feel a lot of successful health and fitness comes from sustaining a healthy diet and mind set. Being healthy is total well-being as a whole and to reach that point, you’ll feel amazing!
