I have problems with my balance and muscle weakness and following a friends recommendation I contacted Lisa to help me with some exercises.
She has been of tremendous help in restoring my confidence with walking outdoors and has encouraged me with a range of exercises which have been very beneficial. It is a great help to have one to one attention in my own home. Lisa is always very prompt and flexible with appointment arrangements. Her wonderful ‘can do’ approach is important, if an exercise is not to my liking she thinks of another. Lisa displays a wide knowledge of beneficial exercises and a very innovative use of household fittings to aid various exercises. I feel that Lisa has played a very important part in helping me to overcome some of my difficulties and would recommend her cheerful, helpful advise.
In May 2013 I moved to the Gloucestershire area in something of a dilemma, having to leave behind my personal trainer of 6 years. I searched the web and was lucky enough to find Lisa King as a local and flexible Personal trainer who I hoped could fill the gap. The gap has been much more than adequately filled, I have a regular programme with Lisa, not always able to be stuck to in terms of days/times because of my work commitments, but within reason, Lisa is always personally flexible to accommodate changes when required. Specific outcomes for me from my work with Lisa have been:
1. A regular (agreed and discussed) quarterly goal setting session. Sometimes you want to increase core strength, or stamina/resilience, sometimes you want to lose some weight or attach something like the dreaded bingo wings!!
2. Frequent progress review.
3. A blend of different programmes/circuits, Lisa recognises that one size doesn’t fit all and approaches clients with this in mind in my observation and experience.
4. My most recent achievement, with the combined advice of a nutritionist, has resulted in me losing 20lbs in weight over 3 months. Admittedly I had a difficult chocolate reveal and handover session!! Which was not easy, but my objectives have been achieved and am now in good shape and looking forward to my tolerance/stamina goals for 2015.
In general terms, lisa King is a high integrity, high values person. Her style is authoritatively gentle. I consider myself very lucky to have found Lisa since moving to this county.
