Personal training can sometimes be seen as a costly expensive way to get healthy, fit and to look good, which is a common misconception – it is so much more. Here at Core Physio, personal training and fitness are much more than a process to make you look good. What we offer in terms of your allover well-being is so much more than the physical look of your body. 

If you’re deciding whether or not to take the plunge, we have a few reasons that you might want to consider. The service of a personal fitness consultant offers more than just a couple of exercises on a rowing machine whilst they shout at you what you’re doing wrong. They can help you reach your fitness goals, exercise safely with a chronic injury and help reduce the risk of re-injury.

What Core Physio Can Do for You


We’ve told you what the benefits of personal fitness and training can do for your health and well-being, but now you need a place to start! If you would like the support we can provide outlined below then get in touch.

Give Confidence

  • The gym environment can be intimidating if you’ve never been before or don’t know what you’re doing, but by working with a trainer you will become confident with how to perform the exercises given to you and machines available.

Motivate You

  • A large majority of us work harder when there is someone watching us. It is no different to having a trainer by your side, but the only difference is they will be encouraging you. This then gives you the motivation to do your work, hobby or activity to the max due to having an increase in motivation.

Provide Consistency

  • Sometimes fitness can be confusing especially if it’s new to you. There is chat about all these different eating habits, times to work out and what workout to do. Your trainer can help with all this helping you become consistent in what you do.

Improve Self-Esteem

  • Confidence and self-esteem are probably the two main reasons as to why people decide to get a personal trainer, they want to look good and feel good. Being out of shape or not happy with ourselves can affect our capabilities, self-esteem and confidence.
