Educational Workshop

Are you new to the fitness industry? Or are you a personal trainer who would like to increase their knowledge and achieve better results with your client base? In 2019 we are running 2 technical workshops to help increase your knowledge and improve your coaching skills.

Each workshop looks at key movements we would commonly perform with clients as well as programmes we would frequently use. We will cover in detail variations in movements, regressions and progressions used with different types of clients and understanding key coaching queues to use to address common faults. We will look at in detail specific programmes we have found to work well for fat loss, body transformations and building strength.

But why learn from me? Well, I have over 12 years Personal Training experience with a long list of testimonials and transformations. I have built up a team of 6 successful personal trainers, who collectively have achieved countless success stories with their client base and for the best part of the last 6 years have been fully booked. I have worked with top-level athletes from various sports including spending 18months working with Partick Thistle Football Club in Scotland’s top division. I have taught and assessed many personal trainers and gym instructors through working for Fitness Training Scotland and British Weightlifting. But most importantly I am passionate about helping others and that includes helping personal trainers to produce a higher quality of service with their clients.

Workshop 1

Programming

Programming can be a headache. Full body vs Split Routines. Where do we put cardio? 3-day, 4-day, 5-day how to programme for them all and what is best for whom?

  • Day 1

    Day 1 in the morning we look at how to programme for your client. What protocols do we follow to work out the most effective plan? What do we need to consider? In the afternoon we look at and perform/coach each other through some of the programmes we use at BSPT.

  • Day 2

    Day 2 follows on from Day 1 and looks at more programme structures as well as how to perform as a coach on the gym floor with your clients.

Workshop 2

Know your exercises!

It sounds simple but the fitness industry is well known for falling short when it comes to teaching perfect form and appropriate exercise selection with clients.

If you are a personal trainer you should be an expert at performing and teaching all of the key exercises you would programme and know exactly how and when to adapt or regress each one. Nothing is more important than understanding movement and how to teach it for a personal trainer.

  • Day 1

    Day 1 covers all the main compound lifts, understanding them technically and how to teach them. Exercises including squats, deadlifts, bench press, overhead press, pull-ups, dips, rowing movements, DB Presses, lunges and many more.

  • Day 2

    Day 2 covers a wide variety of accessory lifts. Posterior chain exercises, single leg movements, single arm movements, isolated upper body exercises, core exercises and more.
