Personal training in Tunbridge Wells.

personal training in tunbridge wellsActuate PT is a personal training in Tunbridge Wells that is dedicated to helping clients reach their fitness goals. Getting fit and losing body fat is more than just working out a few times a week – it requires a holistic approach. Exercise prescription, programme development, nutritional advice, behavioural modification are all necessary if you want to drop a dress size, get healthier or just look better naked. And that’s where we can help.

Our philosophy is simple: eat right – train hard – have fun. If you have ever tried following aoutdoor workout diet you will know that you can have some immediate success but it’s all too easy to fall off the wagon and put back on the weight you lost (and even more!).

Exercising should be fun – slogging away on a treadmill for and hour is not fun for most people. Instead, we focus on short, fast training sessions where we can do anything from jumping, skipping, crawling, boxing, lifting weights or swinging a kettlebell.
