You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives. Clay P. Bedford
There are no short cuts, no mystical solutions or potions, just commitment from me to the client, customer or student. My aim is to help you to discover and choose the healthier options.
Talk is cheap, though, and as simple as training is in its design, the journey isn’t always easy. As coach Dan John says, “Training is simple, but simple doesn’t mean easy!”
About Me… briefly.
I’m Jamie Hunter, the proud owner, leader, head honcho and jack of all trades at FitStrong PT.
My own introduction to fitness comes from an early infatuation with cycling which culminated in a career in racing bikes… cool yeah, but sadly ending rather early due to a knee injury. However, this opened doors for me to enter the fitness industry where much like my cycling career, specifics always took precedence. God help my clients in the early days as I had them on planned out waved training programs directed at every flaw and physical fault I could find! My personal training diploma in the late 90s focussed heavily on assessments and appraisals and much like a Sherlock Holmes kind of PT I sought out to direct programs on overcoming weaknesses whilst nurturing strengths. To this day, I still live by the same mantra, only more refined.
The applied knowledge of over 20 years experience gives me a strong-hold on achieving what the client wants. The employed strategies for weight loss, gaining muscle, getting stronger, getting faster and building endurance follow tried and tested ‘simple’ steps.
Now, back to you!
If all you want is a beating every training session, with no particular direction or goal, FitStrong PT is probably not for you!
My role is simply to help guide you to finding your sustainable exercise options, support you, instruct good technique and practice.
I’d love to hear from you.
