So many great sessions this week πŸ’š

Just a few shots from this weeks sessions:

πŸ’š doing a TRX Low Row, with great form πŸ’ͺ
πŸ’šOh to be young! Ella showing us that it is possible to get your elbow to the floor! 😊
πŸ’šDeborah using the parallettes, push-up walking through to dips, after some great success at the Cyclocross Nationals with a podium place πŸ’ͺ
back from her holidays and getting stuck in with a sun-drenched perfectly done Bulldog hold 😍
Alistair getting to grips with a TRX Reverse Crunch keeping technique and form throughout βœ…
Finally we’ve got Sam performing a fabulous back strength exercise over the Swiss ball in streamline and a a Bench Press PB too πŸ‘

Some excellent movement here plus many others throughout the week, challenges being done and ticked off, plus welcoming Chloe and Sam K to Greenheart as well.

Well done everyone πŸŽ‰ have a lovely weekend all πŸ’š

02/11/2022

Thank you for trusting me πŸ’šLoved seeing this post

It feels like an incredibly slow process, when you want to whip back into shape, and as we get older it isn’t so easy, but by taking the time to think about posture, breathing and form and technique and not going straight back in to lifting weights and thinking that 100’s of crunches or sit-ups will solve the problem, will eventually get you the desired results in the right way.

Your body has been through immense trauma to produce another life, in this case 3, and it is easy to forget it needs time to heal, trying to quicken it could potentially do more harm than good. Have patience πŸ’ž

24/10/2022

Super busy morning πŸ’š
4 sessions all very different and an extra visitor today as it’s Half Term Week!
Not missing a session, just adding in your offspring 😊 and why not πŸ’ž
Bayla was happy to do some ladders and balancing and stretching, a bit of rowing and some pair work at the end with her Mum 😍

19/10/2022

πŸ’šSome fantastic work from this new young client.
Swimmer, Ella has got some lovely form and technique throughout these exercises:
Swiss Ball Hamstring Curl - strengthen hamstrings, glutes and core
TRX Low Row - develop back muscles
Elevated Push-Up - great form here building upper body strength working our way down to get that perfect technique at floor level
TRX Reverse Crunch - developing endurance and stability of the torso

Great to hear in this weeks session that Ella swam well over the weekend, taking a second off her 50m Fly and 50m Breaststroke times - well done Ella πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŠπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

14/10/2022

πŸ’š I am massively proud of this young man!

Huge congratulations to one of my clients today, Spencer absolutely nailed his driving test, passing first time!

Since first meeting Spencer back in February of this year, it has been a joy and a privilege to watch him grow in strength and confidence, not just with me in the gym, but in his life.

To get that message from him this evening, was the best news to start the weekend πŸ‘πŸ‘

I look forward to congratulating Spencer in person tomorrow πŸ‘πŸŽ‰

10/10/2022

WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY πŸ’š

So important not just today, but every day.

Why do I walk, run, and strength train and try to look after my body, because it helps me look after my head.

02/10/2022

Some fabulous work again in the last week!
after doing chin-ups for the first time recently, got a Bench Press PB this week of 66KG! πŸ’ͺ
We turned the ball over this week for Alistair, doing some squats, doing some TRX single leg deadlifts, which you think are easy until you try them! 😬
Debbie working hard here using the support of the TRX, but holding those handles as light as she can, trying to keep hips facing towards the floor, squeezing the glute max (your butt) to keep that leg lifted πŸ‘πŸ‘
So much more happened this week, brand new little swimmer joined me for her first session, looking forward to the next tomorrow, doing some fantastic Bulgarian Split Squats, big shout out to getting to me even though she wasn’t feeling tip top and it would have been much easier to stay in bed πŸ’ͺ great session complete!
Absolutely beasted Deborah this week, racing today, no doubt she nailed it.
Everyone else doing great things improving functionality and strength and always doing their best - well done everyone, more of the same in OctoberπŸ‘ŠπŸ’š

20/09/2022

Delighted when this happened last week! πŸ’ͺ
First full chin-ups is always something to celebrate πŸŽ‰

16/09/2022

Some fantastic work this week everyone πŸ’š

Just a few photo’s of some of the moves this week, some new to these clients and some re-visited and some adjusted to create more challenge.

Each person has their own reasons for training, each has their own session.

The range of sports just in this one photo:
Running
Swimming
Waterpolo
Netball
Cyclocross
Adult Cheerleading Base

All perfecting and improving their positioning, their movement, their strength, their bodies and minds.

To all my amazing clients, family, friends and supporters, I hope you all have a fabulous Bank Holiday Weekend! πŸ˜ŽπŸ’š

Starting off my weekend showing you what progress looks like. When Spencer first came to me, I don’t think he will mind me saying, he struggled to do wall push-ups. Slowly, but surely over the weeks he has been building technique and strength and I am super proud to see this in yesterdays session, nailing 3 sets of 10 with super form πŸ’ͺπŸ‘

Photos from Greenheart Fitness's post 22/08/2022

WE’RE BACK! πŸ’š
Fabulous Fitness Centre on hols, which meant still getting in some workouts and using some different machines for a change, and swimming instead of running for me, which was also a welcome change.

Removed my Apple Watch for the duration of the holiday, partly to tan my terrible watch strap line πŸ˜† but also to remove time and just enjoy some relaxation.

Also enjoyed all the fresh food, love an all inclusive buffet, breakfast was my favourite 😍

Back to it now, getting ready to welcome everyone back and excited to be creating new programmes based around everyone’s individual wants and goals πŸ’ͺ

Looking forward to seeing everyone,
I wonder if they are looking forward to seeing me?! πŸ€”πŸ˜ŠπŸ’š x

Those that know, will know how hard this is! Great balance work from this young swimmer

Our record is 17 so far! πŸ’ͺπŸ’š
Well done Alistair πŸ‘

28/07/2022

πŸ’šPROUD POST ALERT! πŸ’š

BRITISH NATIONAL CHAMPION in the 100m Freestyle! πŸ₯‡

Not only that, but Silver in the 50m Backstroke and Bronze in the 50m Freestyle.

It has been an amazing week of racing in general and I love watching these young athletes, and supporting them is essential to the growth of this relentless sport. One of the toughest in my opinion and not only for those 04.30am starts!

Myself and my family have spent a considerable amount of time with ._ whether it is school runs, swim training lift shares, socialising, paddle boarding, hamster caring or visiting Greenheart, more frequently in lockdown when rules allowed and in recent times to get the odd land training work done provided by his swim club, he really is just an extension of our family β€οΈπŸ’š

The last few months have been tough, but it has been rewarded this week by the sweetest moment in victory, and what a race it was!

There have been strains and stresses and pressure and ups and downs over these last few months, we are incredibly proud of you, your scholarship to Millfield is thoroughly deserved and we look forward to supporting you and seeing where this journey takes you next! Good luck πŸ€

13/07/2022

This young swimmer showing us in the top picture, how we have probably all been feeling in the heat this last week πŸ˜€πŸ₯΅

Then creating a fabulous streamline on the BOSU 😍 Alistair loves this exercise πŸ’š

We call it Streamline Collapse, holding that streamline position, squeezing the glutes, drawing in the core, using back extensors, creating that tension through the body, extending through the arms and legs, to balance and then collapsing round the ball.

Great exercise, we love it!


12/07/2022

Happy Birthday to the lovely Debbie today, getting in an early 06.45am session this morning πŸ’ͺπŸ’š before the heat of the day 😎

This lady has also made my week, messages received:
β€˜I’ve spent the last 2 early mornings on my paddle board, and the best but is I could stand up! So much stronger in my core now and all that balancing has definitely helped. Love it!’

β€˜First time standing up in the sea and stayed standing up without wobbling!!… In front of people on the beach as well! I have never felt confident enough to do that before!!’

β€˜Definitely made a difference. Plus I could hear your voice as I was about to stand up or wobble, β€˜core, lower shoulders and breathe!!β€™πŸ˜‚

What better messages to receive, ❀️ and why I love my job and love what I do:
It enriches peoples lives, it makes everyday better and easier, whatever you are doing and it also brings with it, along with strength in the mind and body, confidence to do and enhance the things you love, whatever that might be πŸ’• πŸ’š


06/07/2022

UNI-LATERAL MOVEMENTS - why do we do them?

Very often we have one side that is much more dominant than the other. There will always be in every session at Greenheart, some form of single sided movement.

πŸ’šdevelops hip, knee and ankle stability

πŸ’šeliminates muscle imbalance

πŸ’šprevents injury

πŸ’šteaches each side to be independently strong

πŸ’šcreates more power and speed

πŸ’šyou will be more in control of your body

LEFT TO RIGHT - Stretch cord work for this young swimmer = healthy shoulders and core stability

1st photo - left shoulder dip
2nd photo - curved through the back
3rd photo - nailed it! Fabulous flat back from top of head to tail, everything aligned for the resisted pull through πŸ˜πŸ’š

09/06/2022

Just a couple of photo’s from a couple of sessions from this week.

has a half marathon this weekend, so the session was reduced in terms of load this week keeping things nice and steady with this full squat, and a nice early stretch/Pilates session this morning ready for Saturday. Good luck Steve πŸ’ͺ

Toby performing a great split stance squat with the addition of a resistance band challenging the adductor and our overall stability through the core, hip, knee, ankle and then just for fun πŸ˜‰ adding in a weighted med ball bringing the arms in closer challenging stability even further and working the upper body too!

Also putting Toby through some balance work on the BOSU performing an egg-beater movement

πŸ’š I hope you have all had a wonderful day, whether you’ve been working, with friends and family, enjoying the sunshine β˜€οΈ celebrating the jubilee with neighbours or just having a well earned extra day off.

NEW CLIENT πŸ’š
1st session with Debbie this morning and she was amazing!

The apprehension and nerves, I hope disappeared really quickly once Debbie had settled in.

The fear is there, I’m not where I was, I’m going to be rubbish, how bad will I be? It is subtle, and negative, and destructive.

Rather than, I’m looking after myself, I’m doing this for me, I’m taking the first step, this is the start, I’m going to go with it and see where it takes me.

The first step is the hardest part, but that is done now and the journey begins πŸ’ͺπŸ’š

I took Debbie through a series of movements to screen her mobility and strength and with this information, I will build a programme for her.

Some super squats here using the TRX, with great form! πŸ‘πŸ‘

19/05/2022

doing a squat variation, streamline position with band resistance, and we threw in some isometric holds in there as well πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ

Steve has great hip mobility, so his range of motion is fantastic, which means he finds squats very easy, so we have to mix it up to really challenge him.

14/05/2022

I rarely write about my own goals, it is generally all about my Greenhearters and what they are getting up to here in the garage, but this is something I have talked about with them and I was ecstatic to achieve it:

I bench pressed my own body weight!! I felt amazing when I did it! πŸ’ͺπŸ’š

#46

Photos from Greenheart Fitness's post 29/04/2022

I was chatting yesterday to one of my clients about strength and getting older.

Q:Why wouldn’t you want to be and feel strong?

At 46, I know that the Menopause is coming whether I like it or not, and as we age as women and go through the Menopause we lose bone density and muscle mass, exercise whether that’s walking, swimming, cycling, tennis, jogging and my personal favourites strength training and Pilates will go a long way into keeping you fitter, healthier and ultimately stronger.

If you are strong in your body, that strength filters through into feeling strong in your mind and strong in your life and whatever that may bring πŸ’ž

Just wanted to post some pics of some of my awesome team of clients smashing it every week here at the Greenheart Garage πŸ’š

Consistently showing up and getting to grips not only with resistance and loads and new exercises, but also getting to grips with their bodies and the way they work.

We are all uniquely put together so what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another, which is why Personal Training is so important.

The blocks of training and programming are as unique as you are and they should be. We are finding things out about ourselves all the time when we move and how we move, those goal posts will move all the time creating change and strength and function.

Well done everyone! πŸ’ͺ
