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.

The beautiful city of Edinburgh is a fitness fanatic’s delight – especially if you enjoy running! But if you’re still unsure as to how to begin your fitness training and are nervous about walking through the doors of a gym for the first time, there is an alternative that is affordable, accessible and can be done from the comfort of your own home.
At Workout At Home, we come to you. Our professional and highly trained personal trainers work with you in your home to create bespoke fitness programmes designed for a wide range of applications. From simple weight loss through to strength training, pre and post natal and marathon training, your fitness trainer in Edinburgh will work with you to create the right programme for your needs.
How do we work?
Before we begin, our personal trainer in Edinburgh will carry out a full health assessment that includes blood pressure and heart rate, peak flow to test the capacity and effectiveness of your lungs and a range of other checks to build up a complete picture of your current fitness levels. Once we have that information, your fitness trainer will then work with you to create a programme that sets realistic and achievable goals.
All of our personal trainers in Edinburgh are highly qualified and experienced professionals, used to working with clients of all fitness levels. Thanks to our unique online support system, your ‘virtual’ personal trainer is with you 24 hours a day, seven days a week even when your real fitness trainer is with another client!
What we can do for you
Our personal trainers in Edinburgh and across the UK can help you to achieve goals that you may have struggled to reach just by going to an ordinary gym. Our unique mobile fitness suite means that you don’t have to buy any expensive gym equipment either – your personal trainer will bring everything you need to each session.
Our mobile fitness suite- what equipment do we carry?
Buying gym equipment can be an expensive investment, especially some of the larger items such as cross trainers, exercise bikes and rowing machines. To save you the cost of this investment, our personal trainers bring a mobile gym to your door. Whether you want to concentrate on cardio exercise for weight loss, toning up with strength and core stability work or improving your stamina your fitness trainer will bring everything you need. We use the most effective, innovative and fun training equipment to make sure that your exercise programme is fun and effective.
With access to a library of 500 exercises that can all be carried out in the comfort of your own home, your personal trainer can work with you to adapt and change your programme as necessary. This keeps it fresh, exciting and helps to avoid that ‘exercise plateau’ that can reduce the effectiveness of any exercise programme. Years of expertise and experience means that our personal trainers can encourage and support you throughout, making your end goal easier to achieve. A combination of experience, training and cutting edge technology makes Workout at home one of the most effective personal training systems in Edinburgh.
For anyone suffering from Osteoporosis and Arthritis, a specially designed exercise programme can help to reduce the pain and improve flexibility and mobility. Our personal trainers are all experienced in working with clients who suffer from reduced mobility, as well as pre and post natal training, core strength and even simple weight loss programmes that can help shift those extra inches before your holiday. Your fitness trainer will listen to you, what you want to achieve and how you want to do it and create a programme that’s right for you.
