RCA’s Personal Training Qualifications
I started training with Rob about 3 years ago, wanting to lose weight after after my 1st child. I wanted to tone up but wasn't achieving results on my own! Rob’s sessions are tough but he will never push you over your limits, but you will definitely see the results.
He also trained me right through my 2nd pregnancy adapting my sessions right up until 4 weeks before my son was born. In total I only gained 1st compared to not training in my first pregnancy where I gained 3st. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob to anybody!
I started training with Rob in early 2014 to complement my tennis and swimming, and to build all round strength but, in particular, upper body strength. Rob is very friendly, which really helps to create a relaxed environment in which to train. However, he is also great at motivating you while setting tougher goals as you progress through your sessions.
From time to time, I suffer quite badly from tennis elbow, and Rob has also been great at adapting sessions/programs to work around this, without compromising on the intensity of the session.
If, like me, you aren't a fan of going to/joining a large gym, or are unsure of how best to structure your sessions, I would strongly recommend personal training with Rob, as he creates a tailored fitness program to suit your fitness levels and goals, and provides a great atmosphere in which to train.
Having been told by my GP two years ago that I was overweight I decided to attend the gym and have a personal trainer to make sure that I stuck at the training. I managed to lose the weight and have been training with Rob for nearly 18 months.
My goals were to keep toned, fun, interesting and maintain my weight, which with the help of Rob I am managing to do. Rob makes the sessions fun and interesting but makes sure I work hard and to
my ability during these sessions, taking into account that I suffer from asthma. He always manages to keep me focused on my goals and encourages me to go that extra mile.
I started to workout with Rob nearly 2 years ago, partly du e to my wife who was working with Rob too and was making real progress. I was working away a lot, constantly stressed with work and tired a lot. I was looking to change. I wasn't sure I could do it, and thought PT was a young mans game.
I used to be very fit as a younger man and now at 41, I felt like all that was behind me now having all my time committed to work or family time. I was about 15 and half stone, not eating well and lethargic. I was cynical about PT, and if I'm honest, probably too proud to recognize that it was down to me and not anyone else. I started just to give it 4 weeks.
Now I am a straight 13st. I lost 2 inches off my waist and I'm the fittest I've been since 25, and that's all down to Rob. It's not just all about exercise; Rob really works you out, learns what works for you and helps you develop body and internal motivation at many levels. He develops and changes programs of exercise catered to you. This understanding is rare to find in a PT. He knows everyone is different and require different approaches.
This makes it an enjoyable experience, and it’s not just hard work and screaming, "come on". Don't get me wrong it takes hard work but today I look totally different, I lift as much as when I was 25 and I have bundles of energy.
This has improved not just my health but my outlook on life. Above all else, being fitter has given me a much more positive frame of mind, this has made my working environment much better and that's thanks to Rob developing and pushing me to achieve and do more.
I've been training with Rob for over two years now. My sessions with Rob have taught me so many different exercises and techniques that have benefited me in many ways. Rob encourages you to push yourself in a professional and comfortable surrounding.
The programs he creates are varied and challenging, teaching you the correct techniques along the way, which leads to a rewarding experience. Rob has an abundance of knowledge when it comes to fitness and health/nutrition, he is always updated with new exercises and it is always very enjoyable when it is incorporated in sessions.
If there is a specific area that needs attention, Rob makes sure he is with you anytime you need him, when you need that extra encouragement or just a little reassurance that you can.
I approached Rob almost two years ago. I had seen him train others and he obviously knew his stuff. I wanted to check if my weight lifting technique was correct and expected Rob to ‘tweak’ some of my techniques.
It needed more than tweaking.
Rob was able to quickly identify a number of imbalances in my body and put me through various training programs to solve them. In the first year we broke exercises down to concentrate on technique. This meant each exercise could be done efficiently and effectively, and more importantly, correctly.
Rob set me through a training cycle of strength, power and endurance programs. The results have been that my body is more balanced and I can get more efficiency from every rep, set, and session.
The main reason I’ve continued to train with Rob is because he continues to develop his own knowledge and service offering. Recently he has completed advanced courses in Kettlebell training and boxing and added that to his client’s sessions.
As a result training has never become stale or consistent. Rob is very quick to notice if an exercise or routine is too comfortable and changes accordingly. He is also very open to feedback and can adapt sessions mid-flow. He is very personable and encouraging. If only he knew how to count…
