Regular review

Each programme is bespoke and addresses the specifics of that individual. The starting point is a two-part assessment – spoken and physical.

The spoken assessment will determine what the client would like to achieve and what they are prepared to do to attain their goals. Also discussed will be the client’s activity levels with detailed description required in many cases; the physical demands of the client’s occupation; their current medical status and previous medical history. Other areas discussed are diet, perceived sleep quality and quantity and exercise motivation. For clients who have an active injury and pain, the assessment will include specific sections regarding the history of the problem and a pain questionnaire.

The physical assessment follows on from the spoken assessment. A variety of tests and observation are used to determine strength, speed, stamina, range of movement, flexibility and skill. The client’s static and dynamic posture will also be assessed. A focus on quality of movement will always be a factor in the physical assessment. Video analysis may be used to perform this for example to assess running gait.

Depending on what is gleaned during the spoken and physical assessments, a programme will be constructed for the client to follow and work on with Simon. The programme will aim to achieve mutually agreed goals and would include physical drills and exercises as well as mental techniques to enhance achievement. The programme will be reviewed regularly with the client with reference to the set goals.

Super Fit provides regular personal training and physiotherapy sessions with clients but also collaborates with other health care practitioners where appropriate for example psychologists or swim coaches.

Super Fit does not offer ‘fast results’ and won’t agree to or set unrealistic goals. Results will come from detailed analysis, the appliance of science, mutually agreed goals and hard work. The analysis of each individual will be particular and cater to the desires of the client.

Super Fit can demonstrate a proven track record, a wealth of experience, plenty of high quality training and promise a real enthusiasm for achieving the goals of each and every client.

Super Fit’s Personal Training approach is science based, is comprehensive (diet, sleep, rest, re-fuelling and re-hydration will all be covered where appropriate) and has been influenced by technique/motor control analysis and correction, Black Box thinking (analysing and learning from mistakes), the theory of marginal gains and the theory of deliberate practise used by expert performers. Any programme will also mitigate the risk of injury with emphasis placed on technique and control both physically and mentally.

Super Fit’s Rehabilitation approach follows the best evidence in the literature combined with over 23 years of experience. There will be plenty of overlap with this and the Personal Training approach but differs significantly as the pathology has to be taken into consideration and this will influence the programme and attaining full fitness.

Coming under the supervision of Super Fit means that all of your health, fitness and wellbeing needs will be addressed.  And if Super Fit cannot assist then onward referral to an appropriate professional will be provided.
