“I joined Alpha as I was bored of getting nowhere with the gym. It helps you lose the fat in those places you really want to! The classes are hard but great fun”

“In January 2010 I attended a seminar at the Vale Hotel. Having known Adam from the gym and also training my dad i was keen to find out what “Alpha Training” was all about. The only time available to me was first thing in the morning before work; I was skeptical i would be able to make this session each week as it was so early but Adam was so passionate about the training etc I decided to give it a go.

My starting out goals were

1. correct my posture (round shoulders) to prevent stress and pain in the neck and upper back region.
2. correct the curviture of my lower back (lumbar curve) to ease back ache.
3. free up my stiff thoracic spine
4. strengthen my knees
5. strengthen my core
6. strengthen my lower abs
7. improve my diet
8. improve confidence
9. tone up generally

The morning sessions are run by Dan Stuart which last 60 minutes consisting of workout A and workout B. Dan has the ability to motivate and push me beyond my self imposed limits. The Alpha training is fabulous for anyone looking to get fit and live healthier. The exercises are changeable to suit individual needs.

The Alpha Group organise Group Challenge Events which have proved a great success challenging individuals to do something they may not normally do e.g. Walk up Snowdon, Go Ape, 3 Peaks Challenge, Roller Skating, Salsa Dancing, Ten pin bowling etc. At least once a year we meet for a meal.

Although a lot of my goals are still ongoing I feel a lot better physically and mentally and I will stay on this program indefinitely since my ultimate goal is to live longer and healthier.
