There are several reasons why people may struggle to work out. Here are a few possible explanations:

Lack of motivation

Some people find it challenging to motivate themselves to work out, especially if they don’t enjoy exercising or don’t see immediate results.

The key ingredient at Absolute, to overcome a lack of motivation, is our accountability program. We are here to support our clients, each and every one, with face to face, phone, text and email support and accountability. And not just from a single personal trainer, but from the whole team.

With accountability, support and a little pick me up from the team when you need it, your motivation will stay on track. We are here to support you every step of the way, and that is the Absolute difference.

Time constraints

Many people lead busy lives and struggle to find time to exercise regularly. This can be particularly challenging for those who work long hours or have caregiving responsibilities.

Our personal 121 coaching is designed entirely around our clients. We will offer you a choice of days and times that suit you, and these will become your regular training slots with your personal trainer. We are also very flexible should clients have a changing rota or flexible work schedule, but the key to training at Absolute is that we make sure we make our services as available to you as possible.

Our Small Group Personal Training programs run throughout the week and at regular days and times, so you can pick and choose which sessions you would like to attend meaning that there is always a session available when you are.

Physical limitations

Some people may have physical limitations or health conditions that make it difficult to engage in certain types of exercise.

We take current health and wellbeing, family history, injury and any medications into account when consulting with new clients and we ensure that we only design programs that will compliment these findings. Many people are trained in Personal Training, the thing that sets up apart is our knowledge and experience within the strengthening and rehabilitation areas of PT.

We strongly believe that every body can exercise and exercise safely. There is no reason why anyone should have a sedentary lifestyle. If you are concerned that your physicality is standing in the way of you working out, please get in touch! We can help you to train safely and confidently, and most importantly, with rehabilitation and strengthening as a key focus.

Lack of knowledge

For some people, a lack of knowledge about exercise or fitness may make it difficult to know how to get started or what types of exercises to do.

Walking into a commercial gym environment is/can be terrifying if you do not know what the equipment is or how to use it. Around 90% of our clients here at Absolute come to us because of this very reason.

Our personal training facility is not an open gym. There are no walk in clients on the gym floor, only clients just like you who are assigned a Personal Training Program, designed by us. The one to one nature of our business means that you will never be left alone, un supervised or feeling lost.

Once you are confident with your training program and the equipment, you will be welcome to use the facilities as often as you like, unsupervised. But never before you and your coach feel that you are ready to do so.

Psychological barriers

Some people may experience psychological barriers to exercise, such as anxiety or depression, that make it challenging to get motivated or stay committed to a workout routine.

This is incredible common and perfectly normal. We all have experienced, or know someone who has experienced anxiety and or depression at some time in their lives.

With more than 16 years experience training clients for fat loss, we are highly experienced in assisting clients to cope with their mental and psychological barriers and we know how to support you through those moments of low self worth, panic and feeling like you want to give up.

Here at Absolute we have been training clients for more than 16 years and we have coached our clients to overcome personal struggles in both their personal lives and also with getting the motivation to exercise.


Exercise is beneficial in a number of ways, and it can have positive effects on both physical and mental health. Here are some of the benefits of regular exercise:

  1. Improves cardiovascular health: Regular exercise can help improve heart health by strengthening the heart muscle and reducing the risk of heart disease.
  2. Helps with weight management: Exercise can help burn calories and build muscle, which can lead to weight loss or weight management.
  3. Reduces the risk of chronic diseases: Exercise can help lower the risk of chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, and osteoporosis.
  4. Improves mental health: Exercise has been shown to have positive effects on mental health, including reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety.
  5. Improves sleep: Exercise can improve the quality of sleep, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  6. Boosts energy levels: Regular exercise can help improve energy levels and reduce feelings of fatigue.
  7. Improves cognitive function: Exercise has been shown to improve cognitive function, including memory, attention, and processing speed.

It’s important to note that the benefits of exercise depend on the type, intensity, and frequency of the exercise, and that depending on your current levels of activity, not all exercise will be suitable for every body. That is why we consult our clients on a 1-2-1 basis so that we can ensure that we make personalised recommendations for you based on your current lifestyle and the limitations this my present.
