If you’re still not sure about that energy, and how powerful it is, meet us and you’ll be left in no doubt.


Your personal trainer should be your ideal body shape, that you want to achieve or strive to have whether the PT is male or female.

PT’s should be the clients role model, practise what they preach. Your PT should be in a less than 10% body shape all year round, unless they are bulking up for a competition.  Symmetry and balance are the key factors for anyone this will assist in injury prevention. Look at the skin tone, posture and confidence of your PT when deciding to choose the correct trainer.

Don’t always go for the PT with the cheapest training rates, rates are generally based on experience.  Some PT’s only completes a 3 month gym instructors certificate course. These people are not personal trainers, but gym instructors – 99% of the time these PT’s do more harm than good as PT’s.

It is advisable to go with a trainer that has completed a diploma or similar qualification with atleast 10 years’ experience as a gym instructor, ask the PT for references of clients that has trained with them before and check-out the progress they have made, etc. also ask for before and after transformation pictures.  It is always better to choose a PT that is a competitive athlete.

Before choosing your PT, go and watch your PT training other clients.

NO-NO PT’s, the ones that are constantly on their cell phones, texting, taking calls, not watching your every move. A good trainer will wear short pants/long tights, figure hugging t-shirts to show-off their hard-work, avoid PT’s in baggy tracksuit pants & T-shirts these should be warning signs. Personal Trainers charge your per hour, so it is plain rude & unprofessional to interrupt your training session.
