Sometimes health and fitness can feel like a bit of a puzzle. Yes everyone knows the basics, be active, eat healthier and hey presto you improve your health, fitness and body shape. However fitting all the component parts of fitness together can be anything but easy with today's hectic lifestyle.
Therefore the concept of Jigsaw Personal Training is simple, we fit around your schedule, and we provide training at a location of your choice, such as your home or a local park, if unsure where to train then contact Jigsaw to discuss options.
At Jigsaw we're passionate about what we do. Fitness is not just looked at in isolation but also in the context of Total Fitness. Total Fitness is a concept that comprises 5 main areas, which are all required for mental, physical and social wellbeing. The components of Total Fitness are Nutritional, Social, Mental and Emotional harmony, being Disease and Illness free, and of course Physical Fitness.
Clearly Personal Training can have a significant outcome on your physical fitness. For more information click here.
Equally Nutritional advice can be an important factor in health and fitness. For more information Click Here.
What is often less obvious is the impact that physical fitness improvements can bring about in the other Total Fitness areas. It is now firmly accepted that improved fitness levels are directly correlated to a reduction in the risk of suffering from certain diseases and illnesses (such as cardiovascular disease & Diabetes Type II). Likewise the benefits to mental and emotional harmony derived from increased physical fitness are becoming increasingly acknowledged.
Finally, there are the social benefits of training, which can be both direct and indirect. There is the direct social interaction of the training itself be it 1-1, small group PT or the larger Group training and Running Club classes. Then there are indirect social benefits of training from an increase in your energy levels and improved body confidence, which often result in greater social confidence. This can be as simple as feeling confident enough to take the kids swimming or being able to wear the clothes that you want to wear.

Wondering what REPS is?
The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) has been set up to help safeguard and to promote the health and interests of people who are using the services of exercise and fitness instructors, teachers and trainers. The Register uses a process of self-regulation that recognises industry-based qualifications, practical competency, and requires fitness professionals to work within a Code of Ethical Practice.
Members of the Register are given a card and registration certificate to prove their qualification and membership. Also known as the Exercise Register it operates in the UK and across the world to recognise personal achievement and competencies of qualified fitness professionals
