Success Story - Lisa Snowdon

Lisa has been training with Lyndon since the start of 2007. Her initial reasons for starting training have changed a little from her postural correction goals to most recently preparing her for the gruelling demands of Strictly Come Dancing.

Here is her story:

The First Session

Lisa Snowdon in Red Magazine“From the first session with Lyndon, I knew that I was in safe hands. He doesn’t believe in giving anyone an exercise without going through The Whole Body MOT. At first I found this quite strange, as I just wanted to get started.

However, Lyndon carefully explained why we were doing each assessment, what the results were and what the impact on my body would be when we got these parts working effectively. Although my initial reaction was that this would be a waste of time…I was proved completely wrong. I soon realised that this was exactly what I needed. It was amazing…he knew more about my body in an hour and a half than I ever did.

The Training

When it came to the training sessions I had no idea what to expect. What I did know is that whatever he threw at me was going to be perfect for my body.
Initially we did a lot of postural correction work to help me with my shoulders and neck. He then threw in some lunges and core work which seemed simple enough at the time…but the next day…ouch!!

As my shoulders and neck improved I discovered that I could, with a bit of hard work, change things with my body. Although I still find the gym a little daunting, I completely trust Lyndon to guide me towards my health and fitness goals. He is not one of these trainers that shout at you. He has this way of encouraging, motivating and instilling a level of confidence in you to do everything he asks. Don’t think that he is a push-over though. He is tough, but in a very positive way.

The Difference it Has Made

I know this sounds clichéd, but it’s the best thing that has happened to me. It has made a difference to my lifestyle, my stress levels and I generally feel a lot happier. I really look forward to the gym. I see it as ‘me’ time, which I really treasure.

Strictly Come Dancing

When I first told Lyndon that I had to get fit and strong enough to perform on Strictly Come Dancing he set to work on devising a tough but fun workout routine. Some of the exercises he made me do were like…yeah sure! But over time as I got stronger and fitter, they got easier and I could do them without too many problems. I can honestly say that without Lyndon’s help I would have struggled around the dance floor.”
