We constantly strive to be perfect Personal Trainers, in the perfect gym environment, with the perfect personal training methodology. But as we all know, attaining anything close to perfection is always a challenge, especially in something as inherently complex and individualised as personal training.
Trying to find the perfect Personal Trainer for your specific needs can be a tricky business. There are only a few of us with any sort of profile, so sorting the wheat from the chaff can be a rather confusing process. In fact, the hardest part of my job as the

Evaluating your fitness level is not a one-size-fits-all process. Differences in lifestyle, muscle tissue, genetic makeup, and overall health all help determine your personal fitness level.

There are inherent risks, with all exercise classes and personal training sessions.
