South West London outdoor group personal training

Does the thought of outdoor group personal training in South West London appeal

to you?


Many people going to the gym either find it boring or don’t get any results. Unless you

hire a personal trainer which can be very expensive the chances are you won’t really

know what to in the gym do to make your workouts fun and effective.


The other problem with joining a gym is the joining fees, expensive monthly payments,

one year contracts and aggressive 3 month cancellation policy.  You see, when you join

a gym you may be getting classes, the latest gym equipment, towels and soap in the

showers, but that is it. You are paying to walk through the door and use the facilities –

nothing more. If you want any further expertise such as a personal trainer then you have

to pay more money, sometimes up to £50 an hour!


Nor do you get any nutrition advice (although many unqualified and unregulated personal

trainers will claim that they provide nutrition advice), nor will you get any regular goal

assessment and monitoring, motivation or accountability. You are basically left to your

own devices to use the gym as the club’s sales team peruse the elusive targets of

securing more sales and generating more members.


We also know for a fact that over 80% of gym members don’t get the result they’ve

signed up for and the health club industry knows this too. What’s also astonishing is

that 50% of a gym’s membership base is inactive at any one time! That means these

people are paying for nothing. So it’s no wonder why people are leaving the gyms in

droves and looking for better, more reliable and financially more viable options.

So what is the answer?  If you are looking for great workouts that produce results in a

fun and sociable environment then outdoor group personal training in Balham South

West London might be for you.


Secrets that the gym goers don’t know


Manipulating hormones during exercise is one of the key elements to successful fat loss.

Research has shown that doing resistance training, particularly when performed in a

circuit as performed on an outdoor group personal training On Wandswoth Common

in South West London, increases certain hormones such as testosterone, cortisol and

growth hormone. The goal with this type of weight training circuit is to produce as much

lactate as possible in the working muscles. When lactate builds up in your muscles you

get that burning sensation as they quiver under the strain of hard exercise.


Lactate production is directly correlated to growth hormone production – so training hard

to produce as much lactate as possible is a great way to burn fat. Here’s how it works.

Lactate is an acid and as the lactate builds up in your muscles and blood your blood pH

goes down (becoming more acidic). This causes your growth hormone production to go

up. In the liver growth hormone is converted to a substance called insulin growth like

factor 1 (IGF1) and this causes more fat to be burnt during exercise thus making you

lose more body fat.


Blood lactate concentration is correlated to the amount and size of the muscles used

during an exercise. Therefore using exercises that target a large group of muscles such

as squats, kettle bell swings, walking lunges and many of the other exercises used in

outdoor group personal training in South West London is much more effective for

building up lactate than using an exercise that only uses a small amount of muscle mass

such as wrist curls.


This type of resistance training is also much more effective than doing cardio for weight

loss. Long slow cardio, like spending half an hour walking up hill on a treadmill (which

may be effective for initial weight loss if you are extremely over weight, but that weight

loss will soon plateau unless you change to another type of exercise) just taps in to your

type 1 muscle fibres, these muscle fibres respond to this type of exercise by getting

smaller and reducing androgen receptors. This also leaves your type 2 muscle fibres

(that can be anything up to and above 50% of your muscle mass) completely unused.

This is a disaster for weight loss! Imagine trying to fight a battle with only 50% of your

army active – you are going to lose that battle. The same is true for weight loss.


Also consider this, go into any gym in the world and you will see most of the fat unfit

people plodding along on the treadmill watching the TV of riding a bike whilst reading a

magazine. If you can watch the TV or read whilst you are training you are wasting your

time, you will not get any results, you do not belong in the gym and should go home and

park your arse on your sofa and watch TV or read there!


What you need to do is resistance training as your primary form of exercise. Resistance

exercise increases your muscle mass which will mean you burn more fat 24/7. It helps

increase your bone mineral density. It improves your immune system. It improves your

insulin sensitivity. And most importantly it helps you lose weight.
