Personal Training / Controlled Intensity

High Intensity Progressive Overload Training

Don’t be put off by the heading, its not as bad a it seams However. Lean tissue only responds to high intensity overload and this is a very simple element of human physiology that has been in operation for over 3 million years of human evolution, well before fancy equipment and expensive supplements.

When you understand this principle it is easy to cut through the controversial claims made by many so called experts in in the field of fitness and nutrition.

In fact Intensity is the new buzz word now bounded around gyms and magazines. The truth is most trainers and fitness coaches don’t understand it and cannot apply it in a safe and effective way. That is unfortunate and the reason why so many people get little or no results from their exercise program. Its the key to getting lean, staying lean, improving body shape and increasing energy levels.

At New You our key to attaining astonishing results is the ability to apply the correct levels of intensity during one on one workouts for each individual with their personal trainer. These brief intensive workouts are designed to challenge the body in innovative ways allowing them to make real changes to their physical condition .

Consider the person who wanders aimlessly around the gym moving from machine to machine with no proper structure to their workout. They don’t know or understand what weight they should be lifting or for how many reps or through what range, line or speed of movement they should be training. They have no appreciation of what sensation they should be getting in their body or how much rest they need between sets. With no proper method or technique they feel awkward uncoordinated out of control and probably end up either under training or worse still over training. Frankly the work out is useless. Sound familiar. Now we know why the Weights area in most Health Clubs is far quieter than the aerobic section and the average person only completes about 10 workouts per year out of their gym membership if they’re lucky.

The pity is everyone ends up in the Cardio Area because it seams like the thing to do. Hey its great for the heart and lungs and if you have an hour or so to kill why not. It might also help to burn some calories or if you feel brave you might enter a spinning class and work up a good sweat. But your at best losing very little weight, you see no change in body shape and to be honest your starting to feel a little run down. Don’t get me wrong aerobic cardiovascular exercise has its place and can contribute greatly towards your fitness and health requirements but like weight training aerobic sessions based on very little measurement and intensity will attribute very little visible physical benefits.

These days time is a very valuable commodity and so is preventing boredom. I hear people say I’ve just completed 50 minutes on the treadmill WHY ? because they can burn off say 300 calories, big deal if the intensity is too low and unless you’re a high level athlete you will achieve very little intensity in 50 minutes. That’s why we developed the high point cardio and cross fit workout systems which are time efficient taking around 30 minutes and their based on sound physiological evidence which concludes that high intensity cardiovascular and resistance exercise will significantly raise your metabolism not just during exercise but for 12 to 18 hours after training has finished burning much more calories and much more fat. The whole process takes much less time and prevents much of the muscle loss associated with endurance type aerobic sessions which tend to wear down the body and cause a slow down in the metabolism.

What Our Clients Say:

"Walking out of New You approx. 14 weeks later was easy. The whole world seemed different, I weighed 60lbs less, I was lighter on my feet having much more energy. Weighing 13 stone 5lbs with a 37.5 inch waist, felt great. Having lots more muscle tone, that felt even better. I am now significantly stronger tighter and fitter than ever before."

David Kiely

"After 12 weeks of 6am starts, constant attention from John, good pains and a well-balanced diet... I love what I have become. I couldn't believe that I fitted back into my leather trousers that I couldn't pull up above my knees. And boy do they fit well! I suppose losing 12 kg of body fat and over 8 inches from my waist whilst gaining nearly 2 kg of muscle had to make a difference. "


"Its nearly 11 months since I started with New You. I haven’t put any weight back on, in fact I have continued to get considerably leaner lighter stronger and fitter.* I weigh just over 13 stone, my body fat is now under 15% which makes me pretty athletic, my waist is down to 32 inches and my lean tissue has continued to improve."

Colin Duffy

"Walking through the doors of NEW YOU for the first time was extremely difficult. At 55-years of age I had very little confidence and low self esteem. Twelve weeks later I walked out of NEW YOU a completely different person. I had dropped 37lbs of body fat, which meant I had gone from just over 11 stone to 8 and a half stone."


"I would like to thank my trainer and the medical support from New You and all the team who took a keen interest in my results. Also a special thanks to my mother Christine who got me started and supported me all the way. I have to say that one of the life changing moments I have had besides everything else… is to be able to buy clothes off the peg."
