“The story of a 60-year-old beginner. In October 2016, I started with what was for me as a 60-year-old an entirely new activity: EXERCISE! Over the course of some 10 years, the pounds had piled up and it was time to put a stop to it. And unfortunately, that requires some work! Because I had never done any training before, I chose personal training: you get a whole hour of personal and focused attention and you need that when you’re a novice like I was… As the months progressed, and after many adjustments and even more advice, I started to get the hang of it. I noticed that I was getting stronger and fitter and I remained untouched by flu that season. We also focused on nutrition. Although I have been watching what I eat and cook for some 40 years, there was always room for improvement and room to focus on weight loss. I discovered that I had quite a lot to learn on that front as well. Since January, I have added small group training to my routine. The group is small enough that I still get enough attention, and it’s nice to exchange experiences with my fellow group members about gaining and losing those rolls of fat, about eating and cooking habits, and about staying in shape. Focusing on strength and stamina was new territory for me and it suits me fine. Geartsje guides me with her expertise, patience, and enthusiasm. She lets me keep shifting my boundaries; I can incorporate her advice easily into my daily life, and I’ve noticed that both my posture and attitude are improving.

And the pounds? Well, they’ve stopped piling up, but I haven’t lost much yet either. Geartsje explains: We can do something about that, but then we need to change the way you eat. To be honest, I’m not quite ready for that yet. It’s in my nature to take things gradually and do one thing at a time. So that will come when I am ready to take that step.

It is nice that you can stay the course in a way that suits you. And together with your trainer. That’s when the chance of success is the greatest. I am curious to see where I will be a year from now. Either way, it will be at Ieders Plak, because that’s a fine and safe space to work on your body, even (and perhaps especially) for 60-year-old beginners!”

“I started with PT because I was doing very little exercise and I needed something to keep me motivated. After 10 years of ups and downs with my health, I have been feeling great for two years and feel like doing all sorts of things again. Such as doing fun things, enjoying life, and of course, looking good! I love going out to dinner and enjoying a glass of wine, which means that I have to do something in return. I often had an excuse not to exercise. I was too busy with work, I had no time, I was too tired, etc. Now you know that somebody is waiting for you, and only for you, so you simply go! I started in late May with Geartsje with one training session per week. I hoped to ‘tighten’ my body up a bit, and I succeeded. I have lost 2 cm around my hips and waist and 1 cm around my neck. It adds up to only 2 to 4 pounds on the scale, but I look much slimmer. And I sometimes even fit a smaller size. How wonderful is that?

The standard warming-up uses all your muscles, which immediately makes you aware of how you are feeling at that moment. And then Geartsje keeps that in mind when we do the five basic exercises. To see whether you can intensify your training or let it rest for now. The condition exercises show that I’m making progress there as well. Those are really tough! But what a great and fulfilling feeling it gives you when you can hold on that bit longer or continue to improve on the exercise! We always keep the cooldown short, to make sure that I can catch my breath, and meanwhile I do some stretches.
I was working on eating less sugar and using fewer additives and the exercises make you more aware of that as well, I think. I am eating more variety and not overeating as much nor drinking too much. Although we do have a lot of parties this month, haha.

I had expected the sessions to be more varied, but now I understand why we keep repeating exercises. The better you are at doing the exercises, the more effective they are! If you have a full and busy life just like I do and do not exercise because you feel that you haven’t the time for it, then I recommend getting a PT. You need to make time to exercise, and you can do that together with your PT. No excuses, here is your incentive! Even if you have been ill or will never be 100 percent because of an illness or condition, a PT is a good start to feeling happy about your body. And of course, if you want to lose weight, a little exercise can never hurt.”

“Personal Training on location (at our place in Oosterend) was the ultimate incentive; it saves time and is a great motivator. It gives you energy, forces you to briefly leave your own comfort zone and has the added advantage that you lose weight while doing so. Personal training is also an effective means to reduce pain and stiffness and is a relatively quick way to get in shape.”
