I first met Russell 18 months ago when my fitness was so low I could only manage 10 minutes on the treadmill, but slowly with a lot of encouragement and patience from Russell, I am now able to complete a half hour session. Russell understands that when I have a bad day medically, I can only exercise for a short time. There is no pressure from him to complete the half hour.
He manages to work towards keeping me on track, without making me feel uncomfortable, that I cannot complete the session. We have over the months worked towards completing a marathon on the treadmill and an Ironman triathlon by using the cycles, treadmill and rowing. I certainly will be carrying on when this block of sessions has finished, as my confidence has grown along with weight loss, as an added bonus.
