This is now the fourth and final feature in a series we’re curating to give readers a taste of what it’s really like to have a PT.
I have now completed a month’s training with Elena – a Personal Trainer (PT) at LED Honiton.
So what difference did it make? I think what held me back in the past is motivation.
Some days I feel motivated, but other days all I want is sleep. I’ve always believed that if you want to do something, you have to do it right or not at all. So when I’m tired and can’t give it my all, I’ve convinced myself not to exercise.
The beauty of having a personal trainer is that you have that extra support, someone other than yourself to talk to before you decide not to go to the gym and, more importantly, someone to motivate you.

Working with Elena also made me realize how important it is to listen to your body. On days when you’re not feeling 100 percent, you can still exercise, but it’s important to take it gently.
However, in some cases it’s a matter of spirit rather than matter, and of thinking that you WILL HAVE more energy after a workout, than you would have if you weren’t exercising. .
Although I haven’t noticed a huge weight loss – I’ve already started to reap the rewards of my health – less headaches, more energy, and overall I feel happier.
What I found really helpful was that Elena wasn’t just there to teach me how to exercise properly. well-being – including nutrition.
She kindly asked one of her clients who she had been supporting with nutrition and showed me a before and after photo.
She also introduced me to meditation and continued to educate me on the importance of taking time for myself to relax – watching TV doesn’t count.
It really changed my life – I recommend downloading the Headspace app if you want a taste. She’s been great giving me advice and helping me start bold new habits – because, as we all know, the longer you have a habit – the stronger she is, whether good or bad.
Elena offers personal training for Â£ 30 an hour and I can say with my hand on my heart that it is worth every penny.
