How I Can Help You Help Yourself

I'm Simon Mc.Neilly, I own & run my own Personal Training company called SM Fitness. My company operates throughout Tamworth, Sutton Coldfield, Mere Green & Lichfield. To date I have helped many people reach specific health, mind, body & training goals from; weight loss, body toning, inch loss, body fat reduction, improved six pack & abdominal work, improved self esteem, improved confidence levels, stress management control, greater sense of well being, leaner muscle mass, improved muscle mass, improved flexibility & agility, through a variety of fitness, exercise && lifestyle techniques from food & nutritional advice, calorie control guidance, weight management observation through to exercise management which could be anything from walking for fitness, power walking, light jogging, boxing, interval training, circuit training (please click on my 'Styles of Training' page for an in depth understanding of training styles to achieve your specific health & well-being goals).

From our first conversation we will arrange a free consultation without any obligations. The purpose of this is for you to decide if I'm the right Personal Trainer to meet your needs. Before the consultation I will have asked you to record a detailed food & mood diary 5-7 days leading to our meeting. We will review them on the day. Based around your specific requirements i will write a tailored food plan for you to follow during our training time together.

I will go into the details when we meet explaining our 80% - 20% philosophy. We will also discuss any relevant matters surrounding behavioural objections to training. If needed we can discuss any stress elements, anxiety barriers & time constraints which have effected your time dedicated to yourself & your training in the past.

From here we will draw up a plan of action which you are comfortable with. If you are happy to do so i will record your weight, body fat & hydration levels along with 6 relevant inch body readings & enter them into your personal file which is only seen by myself & you. Every 3 weeks we do the measurements again so you can see your improvement & from here we set the next realistic targets.

My style of training is unorthodox and unlike any other personal trainer i know. There are many elements to my training, the majority of our work will be outdoor, i show you how you can train yourself safely, effectively & specifically tailored to your body type and your specific objectives. I do have a small indoor studio which we will use for specific times during your training time with me.

Training correctly outdoor is one of the best ways to target calorie burning the reasons of which I will explain in detail when we are training. I train alongside you, gently encouraging and motivating empowering you to progressively strive for that little bit extra. If I think we are doing too much too quickly I will slow our session down. Periodization to our training is vital, we work together in a step by step method.

The session we do on the day is my preparation for our next session, steadily building your energy systems to meet your next challenge. Most of all it's fun, enjoyable & rewarding. It will be hard work too but the rewards are far greater than the effort. In some cases you will notice your self confidence levels increase.

You will notice a change in your body shape & definition. You will notice your concentration & energy levels increasing and a feeling of a better you eating up the old you. If it's time for a change then call me so we can get going.
