We hope that 2017 has started on a healthy and happy note for you all!

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our personal trainers and Pilates instructors so that you can get to know them and their expertise a bit better.  They have been helping me during my maternity leave and will continue to do so. I am indebted to them.

What do you look for in a Personal Trainer? We think what makes a great Personal Trainer is professionalism (qualified, communicates effectively and consistently, knows and shares the latest exercise and training information, remains discreet, turns up five minutes early – always-, doesn’t look at their mobile phone during a training session, etc.) fun (enjoys what they do and they let it shine), and approachable (friendly, motivating, personable and good to be around). Furthermore, their great personalities play a big role in building lasting relationships with our clients. We believe our top London Personal Trainers are like this!

We have four fabulous Personal Trainers and an incredible Pilates instructor. They are Paul, Carrie, Dan, Louenna and Tian. Read on and get to know them!

Personal Training for a Positive Childbirth Experience

Personal Training for a Positive Childbirth Experience

Posted in chelsea pt news

London female personal trainer and director of Chelsea Personal Training, Agi has decided to share her positive childbirth experience and how she prepared for it following the good and quick birth of her daughter, Lana, in November 2015. 

I have chosen to share my good birth experience because the following left a big impression on my heart from the Tell Me a Good Birth Story website:

"It isn’t easy to tell a good birth story. Thousands of women give birth easily every day, but we don’t hear about them because they are outnumbered by all the scare stories that circulate. Or often they are censored in the first place. Given that in an average post-natal coffee morning, seven out of ten of the women will have experienced difficult or even traumatic births, it’s not surprising that women with good birth stories feel the need to keep quiet, or imply they got lucky.

But this is wrong, a distortion of the facts, and a shocking waste of a powerful social and emotional opportunity.

Talking about your own good birth – in the right way, with the appropriate tone – is exactly what is needed to help other pregnant women have a good experience too," (http://tellmeagoodbirthstory.com/be-a-birth-buddy/).

In this first blog after a long time out, I will talk about my personal journey of pregnancy and the birth of my daughter, and my top five tips that helped me the most during pregnancy and in preparation for the birth itself.
