Up until now our Manchester personal training location has been at Longfords Gym, Chorlton. Our Sports Massage base has also been right next door, in the old clubhouse of Trafford Athletics Club!
Well, we have changed premises!
Personal training is still taking place at Longfords Gym. However, we have a new and improved space for sports massage.
We now have a nice, private room, specifically for massage, which can be found upstairs in the new clubhouse of Trafford Athletics Club. Although the old space was lovely, as it had a fantastic view of the athletics track...
There were drawbacks to using the old clubhouse for sports massage. The biggest one being that it was a shared space with the athletes from Trafford Athletics Club. So there was limited privacy for massage treatments, as athletes would often be training in the room at the same time.
The new room is now my own private room, just for sports massage! So there's full privacy during massage treatments, and I have plans to spruce it up to create a nice ambience over time as well. Furthermore, there's toilets right next door, and changing and showers below as well. It's still within the grounds of Trafford Athletics Club too, so can easily found by parking in the main Longford Park car park (off Ryebank Road).
My working hours for sports massage bookings are 8am until 8pm on week days, with limited availability on weekends as well.
If you need some sore, tired or tight muscles to be worked on, then you can book a sports massage session using the Chorlton Personal Training Contact form.
It's Mid October, which in my books, is the perfect time to kick start your fitness training programme and maybe even get started with a personal trainer!
Granted, early Autumn doesn't seem, at least at first glance, as the perfect time to get started with (or ramp up) your fitness training... But that's part of the beauty of this time of year! Because there are not many people really targeting their fitness right now, the gym is likely to be much more quiet at this point in the year.
We all know the gym will be packed in January with so many people making fitness related new years resolutions. Late Spring is also a busy time in the gym, with lots of people desperately trying to get in shape for their Summer Holiday. But Autumn? Not so much.
It's much easier to get in a great workout when the gym is not overcrowded. It's also much more difficult to book a session with a personal trainer in January because we get so busy with bookings. So October really is the perfect time to book in with a personal trainer and start crushing some great workouts in the gym.
The gym tends to be especially quiet right now also, because the nights are starting to close in, and people seem to want to to stay at home indoors a bit more at this time of year. The summer party season has also come to an end by now, and it's a good six to eight weeks until the Christmas party season starts to kick in. So that gives you a good block of time to really focus on your fitness, with less social commitments to railroad your progress.
I hope I have managed to convince you that October really is the perfect time of year to start prioritising your fitness! If I have, and you are based in Manchester, then do get in touch. Our Manchester Personal Training base is located in Chorlton, and we would love help you achieve great results. You can leave a message on the Chorlton Personal Training Contact Form.
See you soon!
I have been producing a short series of video tutorials on training techniques for building muscle and size. It is just a little experiment to see whether or not a video tutorial is a useful (and enjoyable) way for people to pick up training tips.
I am not sure whether I will add any more videos to this muscle building tutorial series. So if you particularly like the videos, you could help sway my decision by leaving a comment below to let me know what you think of them!
There are currently three videos in this muscle and size tutorial series. I hope you will agree they provide a good foundation to help you get started on your muscle building journey!
