MEET THE TRAINER

ABOUT ME

Hello and welcome to my KFit2HEALTH page.  

My name is Kara Naomi Shaw I am a qualified level 3 Personal Trainer, motivator and lifestyle coach, I graduated my BA Hons in  Sports Development, Health, Fitness and Exercise at Staffordshire University.  My qualifications are extensive and can be viewed in the qualification section on this page.

I specialise in body and lifestyle remodelling, your body is your home. Much like the house you live in, when things don't function correctly inside or don't look how we want them to on the outside we fix things and change it to how we want it to look, or repair it to function correctly.  

By remodeling your diet and lifestyle you can achieve optimal results, whatever your goals KFit  is ready to help.

Amongst my qualifications I  hold the level 3 qualification Exercise Referral, allowing me to help those with health conditions such as COPD, Osteoporosis, back pain, Depression, Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension and many more. 

My goal is to help you attain your health, fitness and lifestyle goals whatever these may be, helping you to change your mind-set and develop healthy habits that will allow you to reach, sustain your goals and live a long healthy happy lifestyle.

I will empower you to realise that you can change your life and health for the better, it is within us all and when given the correct support we can achieve anything, I will be there to guide you.

My methods encompass a wide range of training methods from chair based training,  to HIIT training, I am qualified to cater for all ages and levels of fitness and ability.  

All 1-1 personal training sessions includes a full body postural assessment, I also train for muscular balance, which is essential for postural health. (information available below)

I WILL push you, I WILL motivate you to achieve your best, but this will never be beyond your abilities.  It is scientifically proven that in order to achieve optimal results we need to step out of our comfort zone and push our limits, otherwise our fitness/ weight loss levels will plateau and no further progression will be made.

If you are looking for a 'quick fix' or 'magic milkshake' to drink then I am NOT the coach for you.  I DO NOT support fad diets as these are scientifically proven to be unsustainable and essentially deprive the body of the nutrient it needs in order to function correctly.

If you want or need that push, aspire to attain long lasting results that you can sustain, are willing to make healthy eating choices, which does NOT mean cutting out ALL of your favourite foods, are willing to dedicate some time to be active but NOT going the gym every day or losing out on social time, then I may be the coach for you.

I believe that there are too many images in which people are aspiring to become, why aspire to be similar to others? when you can  'strive to be the best version of yourself'.

So please feel free to look at rest of my page and when you feel ready, call me or drop me an email I am happy to answer any of your questions.

PROGRAMMES

image97

SPECIFIC

Programmes are designed specifically with YOU, YOUR POSTURE, YOUR GOALS and ABILITIES in mind. A full body postural assessment will be carried out prior.

These can be designed for home or gym use, although I specialise in body weight training utilising equipment, I am more than able to produce a programme utilising resistance machines and other gym equipment.

LIKES AND DISLIKES

All programmes  are designed with your exercise likes and dislikes in mind .  Anything you do not like can always be changed or adapted to suit, remember you are in charge of your fitness journey.

FUNCTION

Programmes perform the function of providing a progressive fitness regime designed to gradually push your fitness levels to a higher spectrum.  This will involve some feelings of discomfort, raised heart rate, breathing rate and sweat, these are all natural processes. 

The discomfort we feel after training is called D.O.M.S (Delayed onset muscle soreness) our muscles are repairing and restoring stronger than before.

PROGRAMME PRICE


Programmes can be purchased and a minimum of one 1-1 PT session must be purchased to enable the client to learn correct technique before the programme is released.  

Programme £50.00 & PT 1-1 £25.00 = £75.00

Ideal for those wanting to train on their own, or short term PT.

FAQ's

Q.   I have been exercising for years and have extensive exercise experience, can I not just pay for the programme?

A.  It would be unprofessional and extremely dangerous to provide a programme without first demonstrating correct technique, I myself used to think that I was experienced before I began to study the subject.  Poor tuition leads to poor technique, muscular and postural damage.  So the answer is no I'm afraid.

POSTURAL ASSESSMENT

MUSCULAR BALANCE

image104

Movement and function requires a balance of muscle between opposing muscle surrounding a joint.

Normal amounts of opposing force  between muscles are necessary to keep the bones centred in the joint during motion.
