PERSONAL TRAINING & ULTRA RUN COACHING

Based out of the Lake District, Cumbria

Looking at getting fit for mountain sport? Hiring a personal trainer or coach is a great way to go if you want a structured approach to gaining optimum fitness in order to achieve your set goal. Although happy to work with anyone wanting to increase their fitness or lose weight for any reason, operating with outdoor goers is where our experience lays. We really understand the demands of hiking the hills of the UK and the Himalaya, what it takes to complete ultra marathons and fell races, and quite simply just to keep the body in a state of prime-fitness. A Personal Trainer is just that, they are someone who is there to help YOU succeed. You still have to put in the hard work, but at least you know you'll be doing it the right way - every rep, set, mile or calorie is working with you towards your goal. 

 

We have personal experience with many outdoor sports, and feel we can provide an excellent service to anyone wanting to get fitter for any of the following:

 

  • Mountain / Fell Running (More in this below)

  • Skiing / Snowboarding

  • Hiking or Trekking

  • Rock Climbing & Mountaineering

  • ​Mountain Biking

Ultra Running Coaching

As a UESCA certified Ultra Running Coach and an accomplished fell runner, I can help you work towards your ultra running goals in the best possible way. Whether it's your first 50km, or you're about to push the envelope and run 200 miles, I'm sure with some structured training we can get you to event day raring to go. 

What are the main benefits to hiring a PT or Coach?

  • Form Check: Get proper instruction on how to lift weights and use exercise machines. Technique is vital and even hiring a PT for one session to ensure you're exercising the right way it's money well spent!.

  • Experience & Knowledge: Pull on a qualified and experienced mind to enhance your training. 

  • Push your boundaries: Variation and overload are key to sustaining and progressing your exercises. A PT will provide fun and varied sessions. 

  • Accountability: Meeting your PT / Coach is an appointment you shouldn't miss. Having a PT helps to keep you regular with your exercise. 

  • Programme Design: A PT / Coach will work with you to set goals and can help design a programme that can help you work towards them in the best possible way.

Form Checks, Training Runs and Recces

Form Checks:  When starting out a resistance programme you may wish to utilise a PT to teach you correct form to ensure you get the best out of the exercise, but also don't cause an injury to yourself. This may be able to be carried out in the home environment, but most likely the gym. The cost is £50 per session, plus the day entry cost to your gym.

Running Recces: As a qualified and experienced mountain leader and runner, I can take you running across the hills of the UK. So, if you want to head for a training run together, or a route recce we can get it arranged. The cost starts at £200 per session.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL - SARA KING, LAKELAND 50

Matt Le Voi - Trainer of Legends! After moving to the Lake District last October I booked Matt for a Scafell Pike walk during which we we talked about all things trail running, lakes and navigation. I confided in Matt that I had a place in the Lakeland 50 trail race but was worried about the self navigation and night sections. Well as someone who’d completed the Lakeland 50 himself I suspect he began to form a plan.
The next time I met Matt on the Scafell 5 peaks challenge group walk on which he “outed” me to the group as someone who WAS going to do this race! This led to an offer of some personal mountain specific training. How could I refuse? 
I’d trail run for years but I knew this was a massive challenge, since moving the Lakeland terrain was beating my body up and my confidence was very low. In fact there was a 90% chance I’d defer.

Training with Matt was the best decision Ever! Not only did he give me a tailored plan for this races specific challenges he also propped up my confidence enough to get to that start line.

Race day was just epic! The strength training definitely gave my legs more power and endurance throughout! Don’t get me wrong it was tough!! 
But I came through the finish with a smile on my face 16.39 hours!

If you’re thinking of taking on a mountain challenge I’d heartily recommend some training with Matt as he understands the specifics required to succeed. He’s also a bit of a laugh!
