Get it on!

weight gain Do you sometimes wish you could just put on a few pounds? Do you struggle to gain weight? Do you want to fill out your clothes a little better? Put on a little muscle? Sometimes a combination of body type, metabolism, diet, and lifestyle all work against you to make weight gain just as difficult for you as weight loss is for others. Frustrating, right?

At Fitness Xtreme I have the tools and know-how to help you gain weight in a healthy, sustainable way. Using a combination of diet and exercise we can design a program tailor-made for you, to enable you gain weight, bulk up and/or add muscle where you want it!

And weight training isn’t just for the big boys – or just for the boys come to that!

I know how intimidating the free-weights area can be, full of experienced exercisers training in front of that wall of mirrors. I will show you the correct form, weight and exercises for you, building on your successes and ensuring steady and measurable progress. If you don’t feel comfortable in the gym, we can even start by training you in the comfort of your own home!

 

Food Diaries – I will start off by asking you to fill out a food diary over a two week period to get an idea of what, when, why and how you eat.

Psychometric Testing – It’s not as painful as it sounds! I’ll ask you to fill out a few forms to ascertain how you feel about food and exercise so we can identify together any pitfalls or barriers you may come across and be in a better position to deal with them if and when they arise.

Goal Setting – Together we will set ‘SMARTER’ objectives; they should be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timed, Evaluated and Recordable. We’ll sign a contract, both committing to do all we can to attain your goals.

Nutrition – With qualifications in Nutrition and Weight Management and Nutrition for Sport and Exercise I have the expertise and scientific knowledge to help you construct a diet to support your exercise regime. You will also have the opportunity to really kick-start your weight-gain goals by taking your diet to The Nth Degree.

Exercise – We’ll find enjoyable ways for you to get your heart-rate up and burn those calories. The most important thing to us is that you don’t get bored and that there’s always room for change and progression.

Check Points – Periodically, we’ll check that we’re on the right track and on the way to achieving the goals we set out in the beginning. If it’s not working for you on any level – you’re not enjoying the work-outs, it’s not fitting into your lifestyle, or the diet and exercise isn’t producing the results we hoped – we can sit down, work it out together and re-think how we’re going to get you back on-track.

Progression – So, you’ve achieved your goals? Why stop there? You’ve come so far, think how much further you’re capable of going! We can look back at your original analysis, re-take the tests and formulate a new plan to suit the new improved you.
