Looking for a real body transformation?
Exercise and nutrition can have a tremendous impact on the shape, size and look of your body.
A well-planned fat-burning programme can help you lose several dress-sizes or help reduce that stubborn belly. A systematic strength training programme will develop muscle tone or even substantial muscle size, if that is your goal.
How your body changes depends on the training programme that is applied, and the quantity and quality of food you feed it with.
This is where the huge value of personal training comes to shine.
Here’s how we make sure you get results. We:
- Discuss your goals, and see where YOU want to go
- Set realistic and achievable goals
- Provide you with the right programme for your goals, both in terms of exercise and nutrition
- Assess you regularly to make sure you are on the right track to achieving your goals
All the trainers at Richard Geres Personal Training apply this methodology. We’ve tested it with thousands of clients. We know it works, and we are confident we can get YOU great results too!
Our body transformation programmes fall into 3 main categories, depending on your priorities (click them for details):
Weight-loss is on most people’s mind at some point in their life. In principle, the process to lose weight is straight-forward and easy, but in practice there are numerous factors that can make this a difficult or even impossible task.
Causes of weight-gain
Weight-gain is a condition in which fat accumulates in our body as a result of consuming more calories (energy) than our body requires. This can occur in may ways:
- Excessive portions
- Too much snacking or nibbling
- Calorie-rich drinks such as alcohol, juices, soft drinks
- High intake of sugar-rich foods such as sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate etc.
Just one of the above habits can be enough to make you gain weight over time. Weight gain can creep on slowly, and can happen only at certain times of the year, such as over Christmas, while on holiday, or during a stressful period in your life. However, once you gain a few kilos, it can be difficult to get rid of them, so they just stay there.
Lack of regular physical activity also contributes to weight-gain over time.
Furthermore, depression, anxiety, chronic stress, lack of sleep and hormonal disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women, thyroid disorder, sex hormone imbalances, low-testosterone and diabetes can cause considerable weight-gain. Certain medications like anti-depressants and the contraceptive pill can also cause weight gain.
Lose weight to keep it off
As you can see, weight gain is a complex issue that requires more than just a ‘diet’. Unless the underlying issues for weight-gain are addressed, any weight-loss effort is, at best, temporary. We call it a temporary deviation from a flawed lifestyle. After a few weeks of attempting to follow such a ‘diet’ people usually fall back on their usual routines, and the weight-gain mostly follows.
Our approach is to identify causative factors in your lifestyle that have led to your weight-gain. We work on resolving these issues by suggesting healthier alternatives, and get you to implement them on a regular basis. Repeated often enough, they become habitual, and you’ll do them automatically, without really having to focus on them.
Obviously, part of this lifestyle improvement is the implementation of a regular exercise programme. Exercise can be difficult to commence and maintain when you try to do it on your own, due to the busy lifestyles we lead nowadays. However, when you commit to regular appointments with a trainer, your likelihood of maintaining your regular sessions is massively increased.
The high success-rate of our clients can be attributed to these 4 factors:
- Identification and correction of current lifestyle flaws
- Working hand-in-hand with your doctor if necessary
- Commitment to regular training appointments
- Regular assessments and progress reviews to keep your progress on track

2. Fat-Loss and Toning
Burn fat, tone up and feel confident again about your body!
Our fat-loss and body-toning programme is perfect for you if you need to lose only a few kilos of fat, but lack muscle tone. The goal here is to achieve a leaner body with tighter looking muscles, flatter tummy and smaller waist, hips or thighs… and of course, get fit!
For fat-loss, the same principles as weight-loss apply. However, since you have less fat to lose, you can reach your goals quicker. Nutrition plays a significant role when trying to get lean, and exercise alone will not deliver the results. On the other hand, exercise alone is responsible for developing toned, shapely muscles, and exercise assists in fat metabolism. Fit, conditioned bodies are far more efficient at metabolizing fat and utilizing fat as a fuel source than untrained bodies.
Your programme will include nutrition coaching so that your body can burn fat efficiently. Your training plan will be based on strength training to help you develop lean-looking muscles, but you will also be doing some cardio training so that your body can burn fat faster.
Our trainers will put together the appropriate programme for you when you start with us, and will work with you to get you as fit as possible during your programme with us. During your time with us, we’ll regularly measure bodyfat percentage and lean muscle tissue and will measure your fitness improvements. All your fitness data will be visible to you on our custom-made fitness app.
As you burn fat and develop more muscle tone, your body becomes shapelier, more athletic looking and definitely ready for the beach. Want to feel confident about your body? This is the programme for you!
