Throughout my life my weight and fitness have been a bit of a roller coaster. I am no stranger to exercise and I have tried a good many ways to get in shape in the past. My problem has always been keeping myself motivated. I would get bored with any activity very quickly and then would watch all my hard earned gains slowly fizzle away. When I started working with Marc I knew that what I needed was a push and to see some big results. If for no other reason than to keep me interested in what I was doing.
The first thing you will realise is that Marc is not your run of the mill Trainer. Being a good trainer is more than just being an encyclopedia of obscure exercises. It’s about understanding the individual. We took a good long look at my dietary habits, sleeping patterns, vitamin intake, exercise habits and mental attitude in general to see what would work for me. Marc created an exercise and diet programme specific to me and the goals that I had asked him to help me with.
One of Marc’s biggest skills is that he manages to push me harder than I could ever push myself but without leaving me terrified of the next session. In fact something has happened to me that I never expected. I find myself saying things like “Is that X kilos on there? Can we try a bit more?” or “How fast did I run that 5K last time? Ok. I’m going to try for ….” . I currently train three to five days a week. But don’t let that frighten you. I started at one day per week and moved on when I was ready. And that, I think, is what makes Marc’s approach so successful. It doesn’t matter what level of fitness you start with, Marc will find the right level for you that keeps you challenged and engaged without making you want to cry ( too much ).
