Those of you that know me know that I am no stranger to the gym and exercise classes so when I found I had won a facebook competition for 2 free personal training sessions and one group session I was very excited hoping to gain tips, exercise suggestions and some technique advice.
Target performance is run by Mitchell Slawson a personal trainer that has his own converted gym at home but also offers home visits, he can also provide exercise programs and nutritional advice.
I arrived at Target Performance HQ to find Mitchell already set up and waiting (que apprehension of what lies ahead) we talk about my exercise routine, my goals and targets as we set to warm up on the bike (bleugh, my worst exercise by far) at this point you know Michell knows exactly what he's talking about and how passionate he is about his job.
Next came some boxing! never tried this before and boy was it therapeutic punching the hell out of the pads (was picturing a certain persons face at the time but I am too much of a lady to let on who it was ;) ) Did this in various combinations of upper cuts, jabs with the intro of squats (get me and the jargon) feeling rather sweaty and heady at this point but exhilarated. Tried skipping, that is all I have to say about that lol.
Mitchell then introduced me to the contraption that hung from the ceiling a bit like some torture device but turned out to be some awesome bit of kit! off this I did squats, balance, press ups and crunches...bloody brilliant and so versatile!
If your wanting some focus, motivation and encouragement with your exercise routine I would seriously suggest getting in touch with Mitch, he can be found on facebook or via twitter or the good old fashioned telephone 07875 510427.
Can't wait for next weeks session! Although I think I should be abit worried when I received a text to say 'I'm going to push you next week!'
