Hi my name is Michael I met Carol Hides back in May 2012, after looking for a personal trainer to help me lose weight. My first contact with Carol was by phone. Carol was very friendly and easy to talk to.
I arranged a time to see Carol to talk about what I was wanting to do. As I was wanting to lose weight by biking I soon learned that Carol was a avid road cyclist and mountain biker with plenty of experience. Just what I needed.
Carol set up a programme which would start improving my fitness. I would see her once a week for an hour. The first couple of months were hard going as I had a lot of weight to lose. As time went on I could see my weight going down and my fitness improving.
This dramatically improved my cycling. Carol is a fountain of knowledge and I soon started looking at my nutrition and realised it had to change. Having a personal trainer is so much better than just going to a gym. Right from day one Carol and I clicked, it is so important to enjoy your workout time.
As time went on Carol increased the intensity of my workouts so it did not too become easy. I wanted to do LeRace 100kms to Akaroa so my training changed to work towards that goal. Carol set up a 15 week cycling programme. Carols enthusiasm and commitment to her work is a credit to her.
I would not hesitate to recommend Carol if you just wanted to workout or if you had a specific goal in mind, Carol will work with you to achieve that goal.
