Do you offer a group training option?
Not at the moment but we have plans in the future to add group fitness training classes to our schedule over the summer months, as well as a fitness retreat in Norfolk somewhere. These things are in the pipeline and Carlos Method Fitness members will be the first to hear about them.
More Q&As from the Training Category
What is Carlos Method Fitness?
Great question! Our Method is largely based around circuit and HIIT training, with some influence from CrossFit as well. We ensure our workouts are safe, challenging and effective, whilst keeping things varied and interesting too. Carlos has been a Personal Trainer for over 15 years and he found that strength and cardio programs that were too structured and rigid meant that if clients could not complete what was asked of them, they would feel like a failure. Mood, energy and strength levels can fluctuate throughout the week and this will be down to things like nutrition, sleep and stress. And so, quite early on in his PT career, he realized that there was a need to have more flexibility in a training approach and to not have everything set in stone as much. There is always a thought process behind what he does with clients though and it is not simply a random bunch of exercises thrown together.
Is Carlos Method Fitness suitable for me?
We are suitable for all ages and abilities. I have trained kids as young as 11 years old and adults right up until 70+ years of age. We have experience of helping all of the following:
With the the young kids, the focus is on strengthening their core and building their muscular endurance with lots of bodyweight movements, getting them to understand correct posture and alignment.
With the adults, we may be working on fat loss, stress management, or strength and conditioning.
With the older adults, I adopt I very careful approach and we take things slowly and work well within their limits.
I have a lot of practical experience of working with Mums. In Finchley, North London I ran a studio for 9 years and around 70% of our client base were busy Mums. I have my Level 3 Pre and Post-Natal Certificate and have helped Mums maintain their fitness safely throughout their pregnancy. I have also supported them in getting their body confidence back and feeling strong and able again following their pregnancy.
To all potential clients, you can be assured that you will be doing safe and effective exercises, which are right for you and your body. I will constantly communicate with you throughout the session to see how an exercise feels and whether we need to progress or regress the movement to better suit your own mechanics. Everyone’s body shape, level of fitness and strength is different but we begin our training together at whatever your own baseline is and we move on from there, making good progress as the weeks go by. Whether you have never stepped foot into a gym before, or have trained your whole life, we will be able to adapt our session to suit your needs. Everyone will benefit from 30-minutes of safe and effective exercise and will reap the rewards in terms of their general health, well-being and fitness.
Do you offer a train with a friend option?
I am afraid that we cannot offer a train with a friend option due to us having two separate studios. Carlos cannot effectively coach two clients at a time in this manner.
