"I don't find going to the gym a particularly enjoyable experienceI. I've found that the best method for me to achieve the level of fitness that i desire is to constantly set 'goals' for myself. Ryan's advise and guidance was key in this. I found Ryan's help in preparing for the half-marathon to be indispensable. With the help of Ryan i'm sure you to could achieve your goals."*
"I wanted to fit back into my cloths and just feel more attractive. After just 16 weeks of personal training with Ryan once per week, I had lost well over a stone in weight, reducing my body fat by 7% resulting in almost 11 inches lost in total from all around my body. I also increased my leg strength by 74% which helped improve my horse riding nicely. Thanks Ryan for your help!"*

Regular cardiovascular (cardio) exercise is a key component in achieving overall health and fitness.
This involves activities such as walking, jogging, running, cycling, swimming, cardio machines or any activity that involves using large muscle groups in a continuous and rhythmic motion. In order to develop your cardiovascular fitness safely and effectively, exercise must be prescribed at the correct intensity to suit your current fitness level and abilities. If you want your fitness to keep improving then correct periodisation and progressing of your training program is essential.
The benefits of increasing your general fitness through a well structured cardio training program are:
1. Increased life expectancy by reducing the risk of chronic diseases
2. Improved physical endurance/fitness
3. Weight control/weight management
4. Increased energy levels
5. Reduced stress, anxiety and depression
6. Increased insulin sensitivity (or reduced insulin resistance/Type 2 diabetes)
7. Promotes better quality of sleep
8. Improved libido and reduced likelihood of erectile dysfunction
9. Improved balance, coordination and motor skills
10. Increased bone mineral density and reduced risk of osteoporosis
11. Normalisation of blood pressure and reduced resting heart rate
12. Reduced "bad" cholesterol levels and increased "good" cholesterol levels
13. Improved brain health and memory
Fitness begins at the end of your comfort zone.
"Left on my own I would almost certainly have been full of excuses. I wish to acknowledge here the major part Ryan Phillips has played in my satisfying though modest achievements. Age does not seem to matter when I can begin my Triathlon life at seventy years, with a "little" help from my friend!"*
"I was unfit, obese category 2 and very unhealthy. Ryan devised a plan that was a challenge, but not too intimidating! He was really positive and encouraged me to go a little further than I thought I could. Within 2 weeks I felt different, I had much more energy to push a little harder."*
