What music do you listen to when you are training? Funk? Rock? Dance? Progressive Jazz?!?!
The reason a lot of people use music while at the gym or out jogging is to shut the world off around them. When out jogging with Take That (or what ever your own tastes are) it’s just you and that music. No people, Traffic or out side influence.
Which brings me to the point of this blog. …..Why?
Why not listen to the outside world and hear people talking or other gym users chat about what ever they are talking about! Because at the end of the day your just not interested!
You want to get your head down and jog/workout or generally just concentrate on what you are doing. We are where we are today because people don’t want to go to the gym and listen to people go on, and on about how much they can bench or how much reps they have done that day.
The home is personal, private and it’s yours! Do you think you need a massive front room that you can exercise in and then after wards host a banquet for 2,000? No! The average front room that both you and I have is ample room. Our trainers are there to concentrate on you and not the amount of room you have.
Really don’t have enough room? No problem! There are parks, play areas and all manor of local places near you that our trainers can meet you and give the motivation and workout you need. The key word here is ‘PERSONAL’. We are for you and you alone. Believe it or not our trainers are always self motivated to make you happier! If you’re taking care of your own well-being and showing signs of improvement then they are happy! The last thing on or trainers minds are “OMG look at the wall paper in here!”
The Last word…
People prefer us to gym’s because at home you are happy comfortable and most of all safe.
Add to that you can stick on your Engelbert Humperdinck Cd and workout, not because you need the
distraction but because it’s your home and you can listen to what ever motivates you most.

A fee introduced in April has highlighted a possible threat to the livelihood of mobile personal trainers. A Tory-run West London Council has brought in a business charge for anyone using parks in their vicinity. This means that a personal trainer can use a park for their own purposes, but as soon as they start working out with a client, it is classed as a business and therefore chargeable. There are already charges for group classes in Royal Parks, but now the charge in Hurlingham Park in Putney has been extended to people with individual clients and personal trainers had to pay £300 in Twickenham in early April.
A 12 month licence for using parks in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham costs £350 and without it personal trainers are not allowed to train with clients. There is the worry that other Councils will follow suit in a bid to make more money during the recession that has already seen a multitude of cuts in Councils. Consequently, expenses could mount up if a personal trainer uses parks in more than one local authority. Given that many personal trainers are mobile and have a client base living in different areas, it is probable that they use parks in various locations. The whole point of clients employing a mobile personal trainer is so that they don’t have to travel to inconvenient sporting facilities. The expectation is that the personal trainer travels to them or meets them in a local park.
Escalating charges would certainly have a negative impact on the personal training industry, individuals and the nation as a whole. Personal trainers may not be able to afford the charge for a single licence never mind charges for more than one borough. They would either have to increase the cost of their sessions which would make them too expensive for some or avoid using parks with their clients. This would reduce the type of workouts available to clients and those that prefer working out in the great outdoors may give up on personal training altogether if parks are not an option for them. The impact of people exercising less would be far reaching. We know that physical fitness staves off many health conditions that cost the NHS millions every year and aerobic exercise has been shown to improve mental health. The tautology here is that a short term money making device could cost the nation greatly in the long term.
There is a solution and that is ‘Workout at home’. Workout at home are the leading mobile personal training company in the UK. Personal Trainers bring all the necessary equipment to the home so you do not even need to leave the house.

First of all Congratulations to Wills & Kate. The ceremony was a little too long for some of us but
over all it was a great day to be British and to witness what I’m sure will be a new Era of The Royal
But I had to wonder what we as “common” (I hate that term) everyday people got out of it? Yeah it was nice to see and be a part of it but did it really make a difference to us everyday people?
For the first time I felt that people were celebrating Britain as a whole and not the independent
“football” country’s that we seem to spend most of our time in. We were all one. Black, White, English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish, All one. Most of us seem to have rediscovered something we had almost forgotten…
With British Flags flying and people spread out over the Parade it was nice to see. At the Abbey there was all walks of life. Postmen, Bakers, Shop owners and everything else inbetween.
My point is that happy people spend more money, FACT! And today 29/4/2011 a lot of people were happy. And it helps company’s Like ours and many others because we are here not to force people to do exercise or to make them conform to society’s views on being fit, But to help people feel better about them selves! It’s not about being super fit or being super active. We work with the people we help, No against. Personal Trainers are about giving you a little motivation and encouragement. If you just want to lose “a little tiny bit” just in time for that special Wedding then we are here!
Remember that happiness you felt today? You can feel like that all the time! By being happy with
yourself and looking after your own wellbeing. The Royal Wedding has in some way made us all feel
good and maybe we should all take a quick look in the mirror and ask our selves…
“Am I happy?!?!?”
The last word…
What i’m trying to say here is that we can help you be happy. We don’t cost an arm and a leg and you
don’t have to Marry a Prince just to be able to afford a Personal Trainer. Anyone can, And it doesn’t
matter who you are, where you live or how much weight you “HAVE” to lose. Your feel a lot better
about your self if you just look after your own Wellbeing.

Aberdeen is Scotland’s third largest city with a population of more than 210,000. The city has a number of health and fitness clubs as well as private companies that offer other fitness related services, so there is certainly no excuse to be lazy.
The University and Aberdeen City Council are the funding partners of The Aberdeen Sports Village, which aims to provide a variety of sports for all. The Sports Village also delivers a wide range of facilities and services that can be customised to the particular needs of organisations in and around Aberdeen. Their packages include gym membership with swimming, athletics or squash from less than £35 per month, and an all inclusive package for £45 per month.
If you didn’t mind spending a little more or you prefer a private health club, then you might like to try Cannons Health Club on Justice Mills Lane. The Club has become a Nuffield Health, Fitness and Wellbeing Centre and as well as the normal facilities you would expect from a private health club, Cannons are able to provide personal training services. The personal trainers at Cannons have the expertise to deliver bespoke training programmes, specifically focusing on technique so that should you wish you to train on your own at the club, you can do so safely and effectively.
Whilst a gym environment may suit some people it doesn’t suit all, so there is another option. Workout at home takes the personal training service one step further by delivering training sessions in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Workout at home has recently recruited Nick Kelly, who is an experienced and highly qualified personal trainer in Aberdeen. By getting Nick to come to you, you will save time not having to travel to the gym and you will not have to worry about what you wear. You do not even need to have your own fitness equipment because Nick will bring all the necessary equipment with him.
Martial Arts is steeped in a philosophical approach to increased fitness and the Aberdeen Martial Arts Group on Links Road advocates martial arts as a vehicle for personal growth and development. The focus is on mental fitness as well as physical fitness through responsibility taken for personal safety as self-defence methods are cultivated. The theory is that as higher martial arts training is achieved these higher standards are ultimately reached within the trainee. The arts on offer by the Aberdeen Martial Arts Group include jeet kune do, jun fan gung fu, the filipino martial arts, muay thai, jkd grappling and brazilian jiu jitsu.
The Warehouse Health Club on Mearns Street, Aberdeen has a range of classes on offer. The Mixed Martial Arts class with Marc costs £4.00 per class. As well as toning, strengthening and improving cardiovascular fitness, the classes will help anyone with confidence issues. You can also do Body Blast with Wendy at The Warehouse Health Club, which is suitable for all levels. For those who like a little dancing, there is some simple choreography in this class. With a highly choreographed step class Kerry will play the latest tunes and incorporate the latest moves for the more advanced fitness fans out there.
If it’s moving to energised music then Zumba may be the perfect choice. Zumba is Columbian slang for ‘buzz like a bee’ or ‘move fast’ and was created by the Columbian dancer and choreographer Alberto ‘Beto’ Perez in 2001. After forgetting his aerobics tapes he substituted them for his salsa and merengue music and his class loved it. It now has a worldwide following and is available in many locations within Aberdeen. Zumba fitness programmes combine the fast paced Latin rhythms with a workout that’s fun and exhilarating. It aims to tone the entire body with elements of resistance training alongside a cardio-based workout appropriate for any fitness level. Zumba classes are available with Alison Livingston at the Aberdeen Academy of Performing Arts on a Monday, the Kincorth Sports Centre on a Tuesday or the Holburn Bar on various days of the week. Alison urges people to join her as every class feels like a party and it’s not necessary to know how to dance.
Many people do want to learn to dance. Dancing not only improves fitness levels, it also gives participants skills that can be used socially at weddings or dinner dances. As with classes in any area of fitness, there is also the opportunity to meet new people and learn how to work at something together. Dance classes are available throughout Aberdeen. Citymoves is the dance agency for North East Scotland and is part of Aberdeen City Council’s Education, Culture & Sport Service. It nurtures and supports the work of dance artists, groups, tutors, creators and companies, and takes a lead role in dance development in the city of Aberdeen and the North East. A range of inclusive dance activities are available at Citymoves for people of all ages and abilities, including ballet, tap, jazz, creative, contemporary, traditional and world dances. Classes and workshops in the studio attract participants from a fifty mile radius of the City. Classes and workshops are also run at outreach venues throughout Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire.
The Northern Dance Club provides tuition in Ballroom and Latin American dancing, for complete beginners, and improvers, as well as a fun social dancing calendar that includes demonstration nights with dance cabaret performances from top class ballroom and Latin dance couples. It is possible to learn the Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, Jive, Cha Cha and following tuition there is an opportunity for social dancing which encourages members to try out what they have learnt.
For those that want to focus on their core strength and stability then it’s well worth considering Pilates. Aberdeen Pilates Studio was established in 2001 and has continued to grow in popularity ever since. Pilates like martial arts incorporates philosophy with physical activity and aims to increase a person’s understanding of their mind as well as their body. Pilates can benefit people with acute injuries, chronic pain conditions, recovering from surgery, those with neurological conditions, who are pregnant or post natal and older adults. The Aberdeen Pilates Studio promotes Pilates as a safe and relaxing form of exercise.
Many people associate yoga with relaxation and the people of Aberdeen find it releases tension caused by everyday stress and strain. However, the Love Yoga Studio that is based in Union Terrace in Aberdeen believes that Yoga is also a way of generating positive physical energy. Through yoga, one’s body becomes stronger and more flexible. Again, the combination of focusing on the mind as well as the body is highlighted. Over time the techniques encourage participants to tune into thoughts, as well as their bodies. Love Yoga Studio offers choices from Traditional Hatha Yoga; Yin Yoga; Astanga Yoga (also known as Power Yoga); Private Classes; Dancing Yoga; Yoga for Kids; Workshops, Retreats; Prenatal Yoga; Shiatsu Massage and more.
Lastly but no means least don’t forget Boot camps. Not for everyone but if you are the type to enjoy a gruelling workout then it might be for you. GI Julie Boot Camp in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, offers a residential weight loss boot camp and a one day boot camp. Boot camp is about intensity and group bonding, but GI Julie also offers one to one personal training if someone is looking for some more individual attention.

If you’ve made that important decision to lead a healthier lifestyle, it can be daunting to venture into the gym for the first time or wade through the millions of pages on the Internet for nutritional advice. The help of a personal trainer is invaluable in those first few months of a new exercise programme, but many people believe that personal trainers are the preserve of the rich and famous. However, at Workout at home we disagree, and are committed to bringing the benefits of a personal trainer to everyone, regardless of their income. Our team of personal trainers in Aberdeen and across the UK share our commitment and are ready to help you.
How can a personal trainer help me?
One of the hardest things to maintain is motivation. So many people start an exercise programme patched together from online advice, magazine articles and other sources but fail to understand that making a big change to your lifestyle requires some expert help. That is why many people stick to an exercise and diet programme for just a couple of weeks and then lose that momentum. A personal trainer can help in a wide variety of ways, most importantly through planning a diet and exercise programme that suits you and keeps you motivated.
Where can I get Expert advice with a friendly face?
No matter how hard you exercise, there’s another part of the equation that has to be right if you are to see any benefits. Not only can your fitness trainer give you help and advice on your exercise programme, but they can also put together an effective eating plan that will complement your physical training routine perfectly. Our unique online support system gives you access to a plethora of tasty recipes, nutritional advice and eating plans that will help you lose weight, redefine your body shape and push you that bit closer to your goal without becoming boring. Our personal trainers in Aberdeen and around the UK will work with you every step of the way, whether you just want to lose weight or have specific health conditions that could benefit from a nutritionally balanced diet and some gentle exercise.
Don’t expect your personal trainer to bark orders at you like a sergeant major, either. We believe in positive motivation, so your Workout at home fitness trainer will give you expert advice with a friendly face. To make sure that you’re as comfortable as possible with your personal trainer, they will be with you from day one right through to the end of your programme so you get to know them personally and feel comfortable working with them.
Health problems? No problem
Many first timers to personal fitness training are worried that a health problem may prevent them from making changes to their lifestyle and incorporating exercise into their daily routine. But exercise has been proven to be extremely beneficial to many health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or even heart conditions. If you are suffering from a health problem but would like to take steps to change your lifestyle, have a look at our ‘Health Advice’ page to see how our personal trainers could help you.
So don’t wait for the traditional New Year resolutions to make a positive change in your life. Browse our website to find out more about personal trainers in Aberdeen and contact us to book your free initial consultation now.
