James Cummings, personal trainer at Hindley Leisure Centre

I want nothing more than to help achieve your health and fitness goals - whether you're looking for weight loss or to gain muscle mass, seeking definition, wanting to tone up or simply get active and feel amazing.

Whatever you want to accomplish, I can help you achieve those goals.

I say this because I've been through the whole process myself. I know how hard it can be to get started, stay motivated and change your life.

Only 7 years ago I weighed in at 15 stone. I'm 5 feet and 3 inches tall so that weight caused a lot of pressure on my back, hips, knees and ankles. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and my GP referred me to Inspiring healthy lifestyles for an activity programme designed to specifically reduce my weight.

I changed my eating habits and stuck to the exercise plan and now I weigh a healthy 11.4 stone.

Not only do I look much better - I feel great, and that diabetes has been resolved and does not stop me doing anything I want to do.

I was determined through this journey to help others find a way to transform themselves by getting fit and healthy. That's why I chose to become a personal trainer. I know what it's like to ask for help to change, and if you've already joined one of our leisure centres you've already taken a huge step to not only make a huge difference to how you look, but more importantly how you feel.

If I can do it, you can too. I'm proof it can be done.

Whether you are a bodybuilder in the making, want to run a marathon or just want that beach body in time for summer, come on down and find me on the gym floor. I'm sure together we can make whatever difference you've been looking for.

Why you should consider personal training

Why do I need personal training?

Personal training with Inspiring healthy lifestyles

Sometimes you need a little extra help to hit your fitness goals.

You're running a marathon and need to plan, and stick to, your schedule to achieve a personal best.

Maybe you're looking for a training partner, or an accountability buddy to make sure you stay on track.

Or maybe you simply want someone there to tell you what to do and when to train.

That's where we come in.

A personal trainer is your concierge to a better body, a better race, a better game - and a better life.

Personal training with Inspiring healthy lifestyles is your gateway to a new world of fitness.

Personal training is for anyone and everyone, for people of all ages, body types and levels of fitness.

We can all benefit from personal training. Whether you are an exercise beginner or elite athlete, our qualified personal trainers can help you achieve maximum fitness results, optimising your exercise for your individual body and fitness goals.

Here's why personal training is so much fun - and will make you feel fantastic:

  • You get a totally personalised session. No distractions - and it's all about working on your progress in whichever direction you choose. At each of your Inspiring healthy lifestyles personal training sessions you'll get all the guidance you could possibly need, but more importantly you'll be totally motivated making sure that whenever you work out, you'll be completely focused and inching closer to your goals.
  • Personal trainers will make sure you're doing everything right. If your posture needs correcting, or your technique is a little out, we'll be there to sort it out.
  • You'll have a workout and nutrition programme that's ideal for your needs, to help you run that marathon quicker or simply feel a million dollars. It's your choice, but we'd also recommend a weekly weigh-in, and a monthly full body composition session to give you that boost we all need that we're achieving great things.
  • And let's not forget the trainer. We've already mentioned we're lucky enough to have personal trainers who have each had their own mountains to climb. They've been in your shoes. Your fitness challenges are theirs. That's why dozens of people have already hit the heady heights of fabulous fitness and feeling fantastic. Throughout your personal training package you can enjoy the support and attention that you'll remember for a lifetime of fitness.

What are the benefits of personal training?

  • SOLID, CONSISTENT, NON-JUDGEMENTAL SUPPORT. Each hour you spend with your trainer is an hour to focus on you and only you! They will provide consistent feedback to help you better yourself and achieve your goals.
  • CORRECT TECHNIQUE AND FORM. Trainers pay attention, cue both your mind and your body and help you achieve your goals more quickly by making sure you are doing each exercise correctly.
  • FRESH NEW PERSPECTIVES & IDEAS ON HEALTH, NUTRITION AND FITNESS. Trainers are able to use their education, knowledge and experience to provide you with tips and tricks to help you develop a healthier lifestyle.
  • MOTIVATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT. Your Personal Trainer will motivate and believe in you even when you are feeling at your lowest and don’t believe in yourself. Can't is not in a trainer's vocabulary.
  • REACH AND MAINTAIN YOUR GOAL. Working with a trainer will allow you to achieve the results that you cannot achieve on your own. Each person’s goals are extremely personal. Whether it be weight loss, injury rehab, or companionship. A trainer is going to develop goals that will lead you down a path to success.
  • MAXIMISING THE EFFICIENCY OF YOUR WORKOUT TIME. You will burn more calories in less time when working with a trainer. A trainer develops a program that is efficient and allows you to get the most in, in the shortest amount of time.
