Personal Trainer Fitness Instructor Stockport Cheshire Greater Manchester

Specialising in Fitness for the Over 40's and Over 50's...

Eamonn Greene is a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor who helps individuals to improve their fitness and general wellbeing. He will see clients in the Stockport, Cheshire, Greater Manchester and North Derbyshire areas of North West England. His clients are of all ages but Eamonn specialises in working with people over the age of 40 and 50. This level of specialism came about because Eamonn believes there is very little provision in the fitness industry for people in this age range and having reached the milestone of 50 recently he believes that it is important to train with people who have shared similar life experiences, have the same interests and share the same values.

Reaching and Setting Personal Goals and Targets...

Eamonn will encourage and motivate you to identify and reach your personal goal or target. This could be to lose some weight, take more exercise, get in shape for an event (for example a wedding or a special birthday). Your goal might be to run a 10k in aid of charity or even a marathon. Perhaps you want to facilitate weight loss, improve stamina, become stronger, enhance flexibility, gain muscle, improve muscle tone increase fitness or speed recovery from injury. Eamonn is confident that he has the skills and experience to assist you to meet your fitness or nutrition objectives and dramatically improve your quality of life and well being.

Eamonn will come to your home, meet you at a local park or you can use one of four gyms in the Stockport area that he has access to. For home and outdoor training he has a full range of equipment that can be adapted and used by anyone and in fact in some clients cases mean that trips to the gym are no longer needed. For those whose programme requires a gym based environment then the gyms he has access to are the Life Leisure venues at Peel Moat, Avondale, Priestnall and Marple. Some of the pictures on this page show serious bodybuilding equipment, designed to help gain muscle mass, and some are cardio-vascular equipment. This is to highlight that Eamonn has something for everyone, from beginner to expert, but above all he will tailor a fitness programme to suit you. Group training sessions are also available.

Swimming as Part of a Fitness Programme

Swimming is an excellent form of exercise...

Swimming is an excellent form of exercise for beginners because it is the gentlest of all of the aerobic activities you can do. It does not jar your bones or damage your joints, but is still effective. It is especially preferable if you are concerned about injury, have a joint condition, are especially overweight, or are recovering from a pre-existing injury. Swimming challenges your body without putting pressure on it that could worsen some conditions, such as arthritis.

Some people think that swimming may be too easy to qualify as a weight loss exercise. This is not true, swimming is an excellent form of exercise, as the water actually serves as a form of resistance for your body, helping tone your muscles. Additionally, swimming improves your cardiovascular fitness and flexibility.

Personal Trainer Designs YOUR Bespoke Fitness Programme

How does Eamonn design a fitness plan just for you, well the first step is...

Before you start it is advisable to get checked out by your doctor before you undertake any exercise regime, particularly if you have been inactive for a period of time.

When you meet with Eamonn, the first step is to fill out a health questionnaire which will be completed at the FREE Consultation. The questionnaire will cover questions about your current lifestyle, your fitness objectives, barriers to training etc. At the consultation he will cover your requirements in more detail and build a training plan. At the consultation Eamonn will also carry out a movement and postural analysis. This gives him an indicatiion of the areas of weakness (we all have them!) and will enable him to adapt your training plan accordingly.

NUTRITION - the old adage 'You are what you Eat' is in many ways quite true...

Eamonn will also offer you general advice on Nutrition. The old adage you are what you eat is in many ways quite true. There is no doubt that the food we eat and physical activity, or lack of it, plays a significant role in both preventing and managing health problems. There is a lot of confusing and conflicting advice out there that sometimes seems to change on a weekly basis. Examples of bad advice are: skimmed milk is better than semi-skimmed, cheese is bad, all fats are bad and so on. In all these examples the opposite is true and additionally many of the so called health foods are in fact bad for you and are making you gain body fat. Eamonn will assess your current nutrition intake and eating habits through a questionnaire and ask you to complete a food diary. He will then, if you wish, develop a personalised food programme designed around your particular likes and dislikes.

There are many benefits to adopting a healthy eating approach, including an Increase in energy levels, Improved sleeping patterns, Healthier looking skin, nails and teeth, resulting in - A happier and healthier you!

The Foods Standard Agency have produced 8 specific healthy eating tips, some of which you may be familiar with:

  • Base your meal on starchy foods
  • Eat lots of fruit and vegetables (5 portions per day)
  • Eat more fish (2 portions a week, 1 oily)
  • Cut down on saturated fat and sugar
  • Try to eat less salt, no more than 6g a day
  • Get active and try to attain a healthy weight
  • Drink plenty of water (6-8 glasses per day)
  • Don't skip breakfast

Eamonn, like most of us, has always wondered 'What Constitutes a Portion?' - not any more, use the link below to our Nutrition page...

Fitness for Over 40's and Over 50's - Does it Matter?

Why should I bother about fitness if I am over 40, or especially over 50...

Why get fitter over 50 - The thought of someone over 50 doing a marathon would have been unheard of some years ago, and seen as potentially dangerous. Now we see many people over this age completing marathons, doing triathlons, going on long bike rides and so much more. However, many people over 40, and the majority of people over 50 fail to take any exercise at all.

Research carried out for the British Heart Foundation indicates that just 32% of men and 21% of women undertake the recommended 30 minutes of daily exercise. This translates into 6 out of 10 men and 7 out of 10 women are not active enough!
