Don’t let waning motivation or procrastination get in the way of your success. Getting fit simply needs structure and regularity. That’s where we can help. Why not tell us what your goals are and one of our sports physios will gladly answer any questions you may have.
Want to tone up, build strength and feel good?
Some people want to tone up, others want to build strength and stay supple, while other people simply want to know they are doing the best thing now to protect their future health. Many people say they want support with their exercise because they don’t want to lose their mobility and stamina. There is nothing worse than seeing unnecessary decline especially if a few sessions a week is the remedy.

Complimentary Services for Sports People
There are some extra services you will be able to avail of while working with our personal trainer in Fermoy or Cork.
One of these is having an expert sports physio conduct a full body movement screen.
Secondly physio personal trainers will give you the confidence to train well even with moderate to severe pain or injury where otherwise you would be just resting and playing the waiting game.
Skilled hands on and taping techniques can also be used to help improve muscle function and the movement patterns of joints, thus enhancing your performance in the gym, on the field or during your personal training session. We also run screenings before your sports season starts, which helps us determine whether you are at risk of injury when the intensity of the season kicks in. Constant monitoring can be carried out throughout the season to make sure corrective exercises are done soon enough.
Another key service is dry needling. This method involves the insertion of filiform single use needles into the muscle and surrounding fascia. They are inserted into parts of the muscle that are identified as trigger points. Besides relieving pain, dry needling will reduce muscle stiffness, improve the way the muscle functions resulting in greater strength and increased range of motion.
Frequently Asked Questions – 1 to 1 PT
What exactly does a personal trainer do?
A personal trainer will create a personalised training plan that takes into consideration factors like your medical condition, physical fitness, and goals. They are also trained physiotherapists so can provide the best of both worlds.
How do I find a reputable personal trainer?

How many times a week should I train with a personal trainer?
The number of days you work out per week will be determined by your goals and fitness levels. However, in most cases, your personal trainer will suggest you train anywhere from two to five days a week depending on your goals and your body’s ability. This typically consists of a program of strength, cardio, mobility and balance. Appropriate rest is also planned to avoid over training which can lead to breakdown and ultimately injury . Since you are working with a personal trainer, together you will create a plan that suits your goals and needs.
How much weight can you lose in a month with a personal trainer?
Personal trainers are able to help you reach your fitness goals in a safe time period. If your main goal is to lose weight, you should mention this to your personal trainer so that they can come up with a plan on your diet, cardio, and strength training. If you are a beginner, you should be able to see results very early in the training period as the body will be reacting to new training and lifestyle stimuli. Depending on your current fitness level, you should be able to see a weight loss level of between 0 5 kg and 1.0 kg a month.
Is 30 minutes of personal training enough?
Yes, training for 30 minutes a day is enough. However, your personal trainer will recommend that you engage in a suitable training regimen and workout a certain number of days of the week. Another alternative is to stretch the workout sessions to 60 minutes a day and work out vigorously for 3 days a week. The workouts should combine cardio and resistance exercises in order to reduce the risk of injury.
What should I expect on my first day with a personal trainer?
On your first day of personal training, you can expect to undergo a full assessment of movement and your physical condition consisting of strength and/ or fitness testing. You will also discuss your short, medium and long term goals with your personal trainer. This information will help them come up with a tailored plan for you.
How do I get the most out of my personal trainer?
To make the most out of your personal trainer, you should always start your sessions with a 5 to 10 minute dynamic warm-up and activation routine. This way, you will be able to engage in tougher workouts from the get go. Similarly, you should try to warm down and stretch after the workout as this may make you less sore and less likely to get injured. You should also drink plenty of water throughout the day to ensure you do not get dehydrated during or after your session.
