Fitness Services

At Sophisticated Fitness, Sophie understands that it can be difficult finding the motivation to exercise by yourself, having a Personal Trainer will make your exercise regime fun and friendly. Sophie is dedicated to providing a wide range of Personal Trainer services, keeping you active and interested. Being trained in Boxercise, Kick Boxercise, Spinning and Aqua-Aerobics in addition to being a Level 3 Personal Trainer, Sophie has much to offer for men and women of all ages.

Each training programme is specific to the client and their needs, from weight loss and improved fitness to muscle gain and athletic fitness. The initial step is to have a FREE initial consultation so that Sophie can find out about your aims as well as being able to show you how the programme would work.

As part of your training programme, Sophie also provides measurements, body fat percentages and fitness testing to help you see the results of your hard work. You can also be given an additional programme to work towards outside of your sessions to keep you motivated.

In addition to the activities mentioned above, in working with a Personal Trainer you will receive fitness, body weight and resistance training. For Spinning and Aqua-Aerobics, clients require their own Spinning bike or swimming pool. After the initial consultation, training sessions can be performed at home, work or in any convenient location that suits you, allowing you to have complete freedom about when and where you train.

To book your FREE initial consultation, get in touch via the online contact form or by calling 07733 325 077.

Nutritional Advice

Whether you are aiming to lose weight, tone up or simply get fitter, nutrition is just as important as exercise. Without the correct nutrients, your body cannot recover as easily and performance will decrease.

Where physical training is concerned, the body requires different levels of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Sophie can help you create a Nutritional Plan, tailored to your needs that will coincide with your exercise plan, improving your health as well as fitness.

Nutrition is about having a balanced diet as well as controlling your fluid intake. Sophie will explain what is required before training begins and provide you with a food diary analysis throughout your training.

Massage Therapy

As a qualified Masseuse, Sophie can help relax your muscles and release tension after your Personal Training session or simply be your point of call when you require a sports or relaxation massage before, during or after athletic activities. Please note that Massage Therapy will need to be booked in advance.

Having a massage before physical exertion prepares the muscles, reducing any swelling or tension as well as promoting flexibility to help prevent injury. Whereas massaging the muscles afterwards helps aid the recovery process by improving blood circulation, relieving pain and muscle tension. Each massage is specific to the client and their needs, which are dependant on the type of physical activities undertaken.

To book Sophie as your Personal Trainer, Nutritional Advisor or Masseuse, contact Sophie via the online contact form or by calling 07733 325 077.

*Clients require their own Spin bike and pool for Spinning and Aqua-Aerobics.

Testimonials

  • A. Hunter

    ‘In May 2008, I tried to complete the National 3 Peaks challenge but to my intense embarrassment I was unable to complete it! I decided I had to do something about my lifestyle. I undertook a complete change in my routine, eating style and training regime… Once I lost my weight, ‘I hit the wall’ and started to lose my focus on training. I decided to take my next step towards Personal Training with Sophie. I sometimes lack inspiration and willpower in my training and Sophie has been fantastic in helping me combat this. The sessions have always been interesting and varied and I can constantly see improvements within myself. Sophie has a knack of making training good fun in spite of the hard work involved. I can’t remember a single training session where we have not been laughing about something. My energy and strength have improved immensely and I could not have done it on my own. Since losing the weight and changing my routine, I have completed many challenges including the National & Yorkshire 3 Peaks, the Oxford to Cambridge bike ride twice and the Blenheim Triathlon twice.’

  • S. Hartigan

    ‘I have been training with Sophie for over a year now and she actually makes it enjoyable and that is not coming from a gym lover. She pushes and encourages you in a very positive way which makes you want to work harder. Her sessions are varied and interesting. Sophie is very knowledgable, I have an ankle injury and she accommodates that in the workouts, whilst suggesting exercises that will help it.’

  • N. Sebire

    ‘…I felt I needed help in achieving my goals and decided to try Personal Training with Sophie to motivate me and keep me on the right track. Due to work commitments, the gym has always been hit and miss but the sessions with Sophie have kept me focused. I have lost weight, reduced my BMI and improved in fitness. Sophie has been fantastic and I cannot recommend her enough. Every session brought something new and the variety and laughter kept it enjoyable as well.’

  • S. Parkin

    ‘Since Personal Training with Sophie, I’ve lost weight, I feel much fitter and I have so much more enthusiasm for the gym (which I was definitely lacking). Sophie is a marvellous Personal Trainer, effectively combining an interesting mix of strength training, cardio, and boxercise to provide workouts that are definitely testing but also great fun. What she doesn't know about exercise isn't worth knowing and I have learned so much since I began training with her. Not only is Sophie very knowledgeable and professional, she's also an extremely lovely person, who cares greatly about the people she trains and wants them to do the very best they can. She'll push you hard but with constant and effective encouragement. Sophie has an innate understanding of just how hard it is for someone pretty unfit to set out on that journey to fitness. Sophie's dedication and enthusiasm is catching. Getting over my initial fears and booking that first appointment with her was one of the best decisions I've ever made!’

  • J. Cochrane

    ‘I have been trained by Sophie for just over a month, I have already seen significant gains over what I would have achieved on my own. Sophie has been very personable, has listened to my goals and constructed the training sessions around realistic targets. All in all, I am thrilled with the excellent results even after a short while. I have definitely achieved far more than if I had tried on my own.’
