Frequently asked questions
How do I know if I'm fit enough ?
You don't need to be fit enough to start, after all no one ever starts out fit that's the point of training ! The only exception would be people in hospital or suffering from a serious physical condition.
Turnbull Training will give you an in depth coaching call to begin with, and ongoing testing to ensure you are always improving.
With regards to fitness level, Turnbull training has taken clients from the sofa to Triathlon in 6 months !
That seems like a lot of money for me to pay ?
The question really should be, if you are unfit can you afford not to get fit and healthy?
It's a lot more expensive long term if you suffer from a lack of fitness later on in life and can't work, or have a really low quality of life.
Many find when they actually look at WHAT they spend their money on already, that isn't serving themselves in terms of fitness, they can more than afford fitness training,
for example some clients have reported to me they save easily £5000 a year by quitting smoking alone !
What kind of things will I be doing in the Personal Training Sessions ?

That's a great question ,
Because you have the ability to create your own class based on what you and your group want you can mix and match may of the different activities, you can even extend the timeframe of your training to suit your needs.
Some examples of the activities would be:
Exercise to music

Sea-swimming + Fitness Conditioing
