Richard Geres Personal Training Malta
Personal Trainer Profile - Richard Geres:
Over the course of some 19 years I have been fine-tuning my programmes to provide effective, yet practical solutions to a problem that many people face nowadays: Getting rid of excessive bodyfat. Whilst some people may be only after improving certain areas of their body, others may be looking at losing substantial amounts of bodyweight. I have ample experience with both extremes, and both provide me with an equal challenge and equal satisfaction when the results are achieved.
I was introduced to sports at a very young age and grew up playing competitve soccer and tennis. Whilst in my early teens, I was introduced to weight-training by my Tennis Coach in order to improve strength and power. The more I worked out the bigger my facination for weight-training became.
I like to work out with simple equipment like dumbbells, barbells and using your own bodyweight, and am a big advocate of functional training, a philosphy that tends to look at the body as a complete, interdependent system and working it accordingly, rather than using traditional exercises that tend to isolate separate muscle groups. In real life every movement we do involves a large number of muscle groups and joint movements, therefore it makes sense to train the body accordingly. Also, the more muscle groups involved in a movement, the greater the energy demand placed on the body. The higher resulting metabolic rate contributes not only to increased energy expenditure, which assists weight-loss but also to higher aerobic capacity, or simply put, increased level of fitness.
Unlike some people in the business, I lead the lifestyle I preach and keep myself in shape year-round. Have a look at the Gallery and see for yourself!
