I've spent the last 7 years working as a personal trainer which has led up to the opening of Legacy.

Legacy Training tips 2014

Happy New Year People! Hopefully you have all started back training and are getting back to a healthy diet after the festive period. Here are some Legacy Training Ltd. tips for 2014:

1. Set yourself some realistic goals with a time frame. I like to get my clients to have a short term goal (e.g.-Lose a Dress Size in 6 weeks), then a long term (e.g.- 2 stone weight loss or 8-10% body fat in 6 months).

2. Apply the K.I.S.S principle (Keep It Simple Stupid). Too many people get to January and panic about getting out of shape so try and do too many things at once, then by mid-February they’ve lost motivation. Start with small manageable changes.

3. Have a Dry January! Hopefully you should be all partied out by now so take advantage of everybody else being strict and save some money. Its amazing how much better your body feels without alcohol.

4. With the money you save on not drinking get yourself down to your local butcher or supermarket and buy some quality meat & fish with a good mix of vegetables and fruit.

5. Very Simple but DRINK MORE WATER! Everybody suggests they drink loads but they don’t, aim for 2-3 litres a day! (Buy big bottles to measure).

6. If you don’t already, start Weight Training and watch your body shape change quicker than it has before! This is not to say don’t do cardio, put it in there but make sure you use weights the majority of the time.

Good Luck and if you get stuck at any point get your ass down to Legacy Training, I’m sure we can sort it!

After training on my own and in a few different gyms over the last few year, I wasn’t getting the results I had hoped for. I was getting fitter but never looking the way i wanted to. I found Legacy online and saw the specialised in aesthetics. After sending them an email I was put in touch with Matt Hall.

Matt has taken me through training 6 days a week for 10 weeks and the knowledge of how to train and what to put in your body is incredible. Always asking how your body feels and tailoring each session to get the best results

The Legacy gym is spot on as well, all the trainers are friendly and welcoming and the equipment is top quality.

If you was thinking about getting into shape then look no further. These guys defiantly get the job done.
