Personal Training

As many people are time poor, it has become more important than ever to achieve the very best results in the time allocated to one’s health and fitness routine.

At Anatomy Physical Therapy (APT) we offer a Personal Training Service which focuses on achieving results for our clients. Qualified Fitness Instructors assess an individual (or teams) requirements after which a multi-faceted program is developed, targeted at motivating our clients and achieving the agreed goals. These programs are constantly monitored, reviewed with the client and adjusted as necessary to ensure maximum results.

A range of programmes are available in this area including weight loss management, muscle gain, body conditioning and toning and improved sporting performance.

We offer this Personal Training Service to both individuals and clubs. Currently, we work with a number of prominent Gaelic and Rugby Football Clubs in the Dublin area.

What is Personal Training?

A Personal Trainer is a person qualified in general fitness techniques and gives sound nutritional advice that helps people exercise and achieve the desired level of fitness, good health and general well being.

There are five core components of fitness: muscle strength, muscle endurance, weight management, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility. Additional components include power and speed. These are considered when designing a personal training program for each individual in order to maximise fitness and achieve their personal goals. Nutrition and overall muscle tone programs are also developed so as to provide a rounded physical health management system.

The programme will incorporate the latest thinking in terms of exercise and nutrition. It is designed to fit into everyday life and can be done on a one to one basis or in small groups.

What the individual wants to achieve will determine the exercise type, the intensity and duration of same. There are many forms of exercise that will achieve very specific results and generally a combination of exercises will be prescribed to achieve the desired results. It could include resistance or weight training, step aerobics, circuit training, body conditioning, aerobics, Pilates, cardio-vascular training, flexibility, balance and coordination.

A Personal Trainer provides motivation to achieve results and will keep records of the individual’s achievements to date to help monitor progress and they may also advise each client on how to modify their lifestyle outside of the gym to improve their fitness.
