This question is generally asked by women and the answer is yes, you can lose weight and tone up at the same time without turning into Schwarzenegger. Women have a different reaction to a workout than men. As you start exercising you tend not to get muscles straight away, this happens over time with a more focussed training. If you want quick weight loss aerobic and repetitive work outs will do the job – just make sure you are working all the body. Lifting some small dumbbells 15-30 times and doing 1-2 sets will be enough for you, don’t forget to take your heart rate into the equation and vary your training. Our personal trainers have lots of experience and advise to help you achieve weight loss without huge muscles

People commonly visit osteopaths for MSK conditions, such as back, neck, joint, muscle and arthritic discomfort. Osteopaths have a well-deserved, evidence-based reputation for expertise in the treatment of these conditions.
People also visit osteopaths for a variety of other health reasons including neuromuscular conditions such as sciatica, digestive issues, headaches and migraine prevention.
Osteopaths will use a wide variety of gentle hands-on techniques that focus on releasing tension, improving mobility and optimising function, together with providing useful health advice and exercise if required.They will also work with, or refer you to, other healthcare professionals as needed to ensure you receive optimum care. They take the time to understand each patient – your unique combination of symptoms, medical history and lifestyle. This helps to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your issue, (not just addressing the site of discomfort), and formulate a treatment plan with you that will achieve the best outcome.
Osteopaths are healthcare professionals who are specifically trained in diagnosing health issues. At the start of your first appointment, your osteopath will ask you questions about your medical history and lifestyle, as well as any symptoms you may be experiencing. This is very important as it will help them to make an accurate diagnosis and suggest appropriate treatment. They will write down what you tell them in your records. These will be treated as confidential in accordance with standards of practice set out by the General Osteopathic Council and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you wish, you may request a copy of your notes, but you may be charged an administration fee for this. Your osteopath will need to examine the area(s) of your body causing discomfort. Sometimes the cause of the problem may be in a different area to the pain, (For example, pain in your lower arm may be linked to the nerves in your neck) so they may need to examine your whole body. They will need to feel for any tightness in the muscles and stiffness in the joints and may need to touch these areas to identify problems. They will explain what they are doing as they go along. If you are uncomfortable with any part of this, you have the right to ask them to stop at any stage, without prejudicing your future treatment.
After an initial consultation, we arrange a first sessions where we assess your fitness, taking measurements for muscle mass, fat percentage, bone mass, metabolic age, blood pressure and relaxing heart rate. We look at your posture and discuss your general nutrition, and expectation then follow this with an hour’s tailored personal training.

Following this, we go away and tailor-make a programme to fit your needs and budget. We always make the training vary,fun and enjoyable so you never get bored.
Perhaps you are over-exercising yourself without knowing your own body. If your body and mind are not ready for the result, you won’t get one.

MG personal trainers will do this with you, guiding you through your workout.

A Personal Training session will last for one hour. This will follow along the lines of a brief warm-up followed by your main training programme where you will focus on your goals using cardiovascular, strength or flexibility exercises. Finally there will be a cool down or relaxation period. Any programme may vary from one session to the next according to the Clients’ needs and progress.
The nature of Personal Training is such that it incorporates your needs, goals and preferences. The Personal Trainer will need to ask some initial questions during the consultation, which probe the demands that are placed on you from your job or lifestyle. Typically the first session will include questions about:
Basic personal details
Lifestyle factors (e.g. smoking or drinking)
Nutritional habits (you may be asked to keep a diary)
Personal goals and objectives in relation to fitness
So as you can see a trainer looks at more than just the fitness or exercise component of your life. Any professional trainer should be able to provide information and advice about nutrition, stress management, motivational techniques and then be able to refer you on to others where the need may arise (Sports Massage Therapy)

Osteopaths are regulated by law and recognised as an allied health profession by NHS England. This gives them a similar status to dentists or physiotherapists and guarantees the equivalent high level of care. By law, an osteopath must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) to practise in the UK. Before an osteopath can obtain registration, they must attain specialist degree-level training, either a Bachelor of Science (BSc.) or integrated Masters (MOst.), plus complete over 1000 hours of clinical placements (direct patient contact time). To maintain their registration with GOsC, which is renewed annually, osteopaths must meet mandatory continuous professional development (CPD): keeping skills and knowledge up-to-date and maintaining high standards of professional development.
As with any healthcare appointment, it may be necessary for your osteopath to ask you to remove some clothing. This is so they can observe and palpate the areas of the body causing you concern. Your osteopath will want you to feel at ease, therefore if you feel uncomfortable undressing to your underwear, your osteopath may be able to suggest wearing clothing, such as shorts and a t-shirt, sports bra or close-fitting garments, that will enable them to work effectively, so please do discuss this with them.You may wish to seek treatment from an osteopath of the same sex as yourself. You are also welcome to ask a friend or relative to accompany you and be present throughout your appointment.
