ABOUT PERSONAL TRAINING WITH MARIOS

A COMPLETE PERSONAL TRAINING EXPERIENCE

Personal Training and Nutrition For Everyone

My aim is to bring the benefits of great health and wellbeing to you, as simply, easily and as fast as possible. I understand that meeting your full health and fitness capabilities works best with a holistic yet simple approach. This involves carefully programmed physical training but that is not all. We will work on your nutrition and aim to overcome any barriers that slow down your progress.

 

You may feel that you have very little experience in health and fitness but this should not stop you - we all started somewhere. I work with both beginners and with clients who have many years of experience. I also work with all age groups including seniors, abilities levels, genders and personalities.

 

My wide experience and knowledge base equips me to meet all your health and fitness needs, leading you towards being the best version of your self.

Personal Training Health and Fitness Goals

Weight Loss: Your fitness goals may be in the area of weight loss. The majority of my clients are looking for weight and fat loss results as part of their training goals. As we incorporate a regular training routine and work with simple healthy nutrition principles you will start seeing weight and fat loss results very soon! You will feel better, lighter and more energetic in no time, whilst seeing your clothing or belt size shrink.

 

Muscle and Strength Gain: Men and women often come to me with the goal of toning up and adding muscle mass. We will work with effective weight training methods so you quickly feel sculpted, stronger and firmer. As the months go by you will see yourself lifting more weight and increasing your upper body, lower body and core strength. You will feel your clothes fit better and have a stronger physical presence in yourself and out.

Improved Nutrition Practices: As we work together you will feel more empowered and confident as you learn and apply healthier eating practices. This will come with making simple and effective changes to your nutrition intake.

 

We will work towards a plant based diet which is balanced, nutritious and tasty! Nutrition is a hugely important part of the journey when improving your overall health and well-being - physical training alone will greatly limit your progress. Both need to be taken into account. I have the knowledge and expertise to guide you in both these areas.

Yoga and Flexibility: Many clients come to me hoping to feel more open in their body and flexible, as well as to enjoy the mental benefits that Yoga and flexibility training can bring. Clients are also becoming more aware of the link between increased flexibility and the avoidance of injury.

 

Back Pain and Injury Avoidance: I am a specialist in the subject of Lower Back Pain. I will support you if suffering from lower back pain or want to do your best to avoid it by enjoying a balanced physical training routine. 

Improve Skills and Knowledge: As we progress through our personal training journey you will learn a lot. You learn safe and effective exercise technique, training methods to support you towards your goals and improved motor skills. 

 

You'll learn an extensive library of exercises and how to keep your training varied and fun. You'll also pick up healthy nutritional practices, tips and ideas, which you can implement for the rest of your life!

Mental Health: Personal Training can support good mental health. Training releases mood boosting chemicals into the body whilst reducing stress levels. Our sessions will have a positive impact on self-esteem, confidence levels and will put you back in the drivers seat of your life. Everyone is different as with everyone's health and fitness journey - whether that be physical or mental.

Improve Energy Levels: With better exercise and nutrition practices you'll see your energy levels improve and stabilise. Improved sleep, more focus and fewer daytime energy slumps are just some of the benefits you'll see.

We'll keep Personal Training as simple as possible. We'll stick to what works best with no military fitness style training or butt-kicking in sight. No foods which you don't like or routines that don't suit your lifestyle.

 

Health and Fitness can be part of a balanced life style - not a miserable life chore.
