Whilst gyms are undeniably the first thing one thinks of discussing getting fit, pops up on the agenda, it is not the only option nor is it always the best idea. Apart from the contracts, high fees and group settings (not appealing to everyone) gym classes, by their very nature, must treat the collective as one entity. If your current health situation dictates a personalised training programme then it is unlikely that you will find due attention in a public gym – so what’s the answer? You can struggle on with a solitary fitness regime which a high percentage of people won’t stick to or you can try a one-on-one fitness programme specially created by your own personal trainer with you in mind. www.workoutathome.co.uk is all about helping our clients to fitness and keeping them there. Our encouraging team of fitness professionals, male and female, are on hand to work with you to bring you to the level of fitness you need to improve your health, to lose weight or to help with medical conditions.

Deciding to get your body into shape is a big step that you should be proud to take and planning your exercise regime is important for making it effective, but this takes effort. Furthermore, if you are inexperienced when it comes to working out, the process can seem daunting which is why many people consider hiring a Personal Trainer even if it’s just to get started. This choice could alter the way you look and feel both inside and out.
The process of getting into shape isn’t always as straightforward as simply working out though. A Workout at Home Personal Trainer can explore any physical and lifestyle issues you might have in order to determine the ideal workout approach for you and you alone and one of the advantages of utilising Personal Trainers through Workout at Home is that this strategy can be implemented anywhere in the UK.
Every person has slightly varied requirements when it comes to looking after their body and overall way of life. Your Trainer can go over your objectives with you to help you decide how achievable they are. This will ensure you don’t start exercising with false hopes in mind. It is great to have goals to help keep you motivated, but they cannot be achieved overnight. Your trainer can enable you to see what is achievable and estimate the time necessary for you accomplish goals.
It is not only goals that help keep you motivated, a personal trainer will provide you with a constant source of motivation which is another great aspect of personal training. A personal trainer can create a customised workout program for you and then he or she can impel you to reach your goals. Part of a trainer’s job is to help you look great, but he or she should also make you feel positive and driven to accomplish what you set out to achieve.
A Workout at Home trainer will reduce stress by bringing the gym to your home. In-home training makes it possible for you to be as comfortable in your fitness environment as possible. You may feel self-conscious about your body and lack confidence when it comes to working out in public, so personal training at home allows you to privately achieve the body of your dreams.
The Last word….
It is hard to follow through that vital decision of getting your body into shape, but staying motivated with change your life forever. If you have any questions about how to go about it just ask us. We are here to help.

Michelle Obama, the wife of the most powerful man on earth is jumping on the Personal Trainer band wagon and we at Workout at Home applaud her dedication and commitment to improving her wellbeing and setting a positive example to us all.
We would quite like to see David Cameron and Nick Clegg doing more when it comes to their personal fitness levels. We are not asking to see David Cameron in speedos, doing squat thrusts on Downing Street, but perhaps Nick Clegg could start by giving up smoking. This would surely encourage others to do likewise. Our personal trainers and online support system can offer a variety of tips when it comes to giving up this vice as well as a whole host of other health and fitness issues.

With London 2012 just round the corner we shouldn’t forget the other big event coming to London. I’m talking of course about the London 2012 Paralympics. I started with this because it shows that ALL walks of life can achieve greatness. But sadly ,disabled or not we are not all born to be Olympic hopefuls carrying our nations dreams with them. Some of us just want to get fit!
Are you Blind? Deaf? Maybe you have some motability issues? Maybe you were born just a little bit more special than most other people. Your no different to other people in lots of ways, So why is there this stigma that disabled people just don’t exercise or need the use of a Personal Trainer?
My point is that disabled people (Both mentally & physically) DO in fact like to keep fit, and that’s a FACT! People of all walks of life have the need/want to improve them selves and even if they can’t quite do ALL the things that other people do, Disabled people do want to keep fit! but 9 times out of 10, people with even the slightest bit of a disability feel that going to the gym is totally out the question.
So if going to the gym is out of the question then what about at home? In a relaxed, safe environment with maybe a family member, Friend, care worker or helper getting involved with the program?
Please don’t get me wrong here. I’m definitely NOT saying that we can help everyone. Sometimes the exercises/Nutrition needs of some people with special needs are totally beyond our control/knowledge. But we CAN help a lot of people that are with-out the shadow of a doubt disabled, but just wanting, like the rest of us to increase there own wellbeing and get fit and healthy.
Our Personal Trainers are all masters of what they do. Not one of them has walked in off the street and we have just given them a job with out being fully qualified and/or expertly knowledgeable in what they do.
Are you in a wheel chair? Then our trainers know 1000′s of great exercises for the upper body?
Do you have some learning or mental disability’s? Our trainers will take their time and help you EVERY single step of the way, never rushing, never pushing, Never making you, or your body do ANYTHING that you are not 100% happy with.
At the end of the day we can and should be helping more disabled people feel happy with exercising. With or without a Personal Trainer we are more than happy to answer ANY questions that people have. Don’t know what exercises to do? Then check out our Videos and tuitions, featuring 1000′s of great tips for disabled & able body’s to do. Still don’t know what is best for you? Then JUST ASK!!!!!
Drop us a e-mail (http://www.workoutathome.co.uk/contact_us.php) explaining your situation even if you really don’t want to/can’t exercise with your Personal Trainer, you might want to use your session just taking advantage of his/Her Vast knowledge of Nutrition and Fitness. They all love what they do that’s why we hired them.Don’t be scared, Just ask!
The Last word.
People with disability’s,No matter how minor/Major sometimes just need advice and guidance as well. And if we at fitness@home can put our hands up and say “Yes! If we can help you, We will!” Shouldn’t everyone?

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.

Are video Games a replacement for real exercise?
Now please don’t get me wrong here. I’m not talking at Call Of Duty VS Real war! I’m talking about
the current trend of video games that looks to firmly set it’s eyes on exercise.
A relatively recent addition to the video game universe, these games are interactive and can require
as little activity as a swing of the wrist to play golf or tennis, or as much effort as an intense dance
routine or the full punches in a virtual boxing match. Most of these games do not qualify as aerobic
exercise, though they do require more activity than traditional video games I have chosen 3 games
to play and to see if they relate to the real world. The 3 are…
Wii – Wii Fit Plus
xbox 360 – Zumba Fitness: Join the Party
PS3 – Sports Champions
-Wii Fit plus-
The Wii has established it’s self as a good console for exercising, and at first look it does seem to be
a good form of light exercise. The harder you play, the more calories you burn! Good then!?!
…But alas I started to get board pretty quick and soon found that I could just sit on the balance
board and get the same results (if not better) as when I was standing! Now I know that sitting down
and playing it is not the idea of the game but there is no motivation to carry on trying as hard as you
could when you can do very little and achieve the same level of results. Don’t get me wrong it can help with exercising but no where near a real life replacement.
-Zumba Fitness: Join the Party-
From the off you know that you are not going to get away sitting down with this. Sit down and the
“kinect” sensor will just pause the game until you stand again! With this I found that the level of
exercise that I got is 100x better than the Wii! There was real hope that video games have the power
to replace us Personal Trainers! But… (and there is always a but!)
The learning curve of this game is horrendous! From the training section of the game it started like this…
The virtual trainer walked onto the screen and says “OK then nice and slowly- left foot in, left foot out, left, right, in, and out” Which is probably just the same as a real Zumba class! But then it all goes wrong….
From 1 step moves all of a sudden it seems the game has detected your copying the move and automaticly presumes that you are a Zumba Master!
Suddenly (on the training sections!) the on-screen character starts dancing away at full speed! After
trying to keep up with this for a few minuets I found that I nearly tied my legs behind my head!
We all need a little motivation but if our Personal Trainers come to your house and after the first
2 minutes started shouting “MOVE YOU DIRTY MAGGOT! PAIN IS EASY!!! COPY MY MOVES OR WE WILL DO IT ALL AGAIN ,AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN, OVER & OVER YOU DIRTY WORM!!!!” you wouldn’t want that person back and we wouldn’t be the fast growing company that we are today! Add to that, half the time you try and copy the moves and the sensor doesn’t pick you up, Despite matching the on-screen moves perfectly!
So better than the Wii but we are not all Dance & Exercise masters. We need to warm up
and do things at our own pace not that of a angry video game.
This was by far the most expensive of the 2. (counting everything you have to buy) At first looks the Move controllers work quite well and are very responsive to your moves. It looks far better than the others as well as leaving you feeling a lot more in control. But then the curse of the Wii strikes again.
You soon find that you can just sit down on the sofa and play. Although quite fun it lacked motivation and wouldn’t encourage you to try a little bit harder.
The last word…
So can they replace us Personal Trainers? Probably not! But It’s a good place to start, though. Kids can have fun doing it, they can feel a little better about actually trying the sport or activity.But really, you ought to get outside, give it a try and have some real fun.” Now Only a fool would say that exercise will remain in the real world. But now? No. And not for a very, very long time to come.
But hey! I had a laugh trying them out!

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.
