Gentle Fitness ltd also offers:

Programme writing

My programme writing service consists of exercises written for you to complete in your own time, whether this be to use in the gym, home or away with work. The programme can be using any equipment you have or can be yoga, pilates, body weight or water based exercises. Some people have also asked for their programme to be for running to complete a 5K, 10K, half marathon or marathon.

Ideally your exercise programmes should be updated regularly (between 1-3 months) to ensure you are progressing towards your goals.

£7 per programme (this does not include being shown the exercises, some decide to pair this with a one off PT session where the programme is taught)

Massage

Massage with Gentle Fitness aims to promote a feeling of good health and wellbeing while being affordable. Massage involves manipulation of the body’s soft tissue to relieve muscle tension, back pain, headaches, aches and pains. Massage also increases mobility and flexibility, increases relaxation and improves the circulation.

Prior to your massage you will receive a confidential consultation that allows Samantha to discover how to best meet your needs and will cover injuries and medical conditions to ensure she is aware of any contra-indications (physical conditions that would prohibit or limit a massage). Any client with certain conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, diabetes or trapped nerves will need to check with a doctor before receiving a massage.

Massage Treatments:

Gentle Fitness ltd offers a mobile massage service which means we can meet you at your place of work or in the comfort of your own home, equipped with a professional massage table and everything that is required to provide your treatment of choice. All that you need provide is the floor space of an average wallpapering table.

Should you wish to pay for an individual session your payment must be received prior to the treatment, however we do offer blocks of sessions at a discounted price.

If you need to cancel your massage we require a minimum of 48 hours notice will be needed or you will still be charged for your massage


Swimming lessons

Confidence in the water at any age!

From water confidence to lessons in advanced swim technique you are sure to receive a session to suit your needs.

Whether your first lesson covers holding hands walking through the water to get used to it, learning breathing and getting your face wet or mastering butterfly stroke, all levels of ability can be catered for.

Samantha currently offers lessons to clients ranging from 3 years old to mid 80’s. Swimming lessons are one on one and can be held in a pool local to you. Samantha predominantly gives lessons within the South Gloucestershire Leisure Centres. If you’re unsure of the best location for you, get in touch.

£20 per session (this does not include you own pool entry)


Hydro therapy

Hydro therapy consists of exercises taught in shallow water so is suitable for both swimmers and non-swimmers alike. Hydro therapy can help with joint pain and in rehabilitation after surgery, for example following hip and knee replacements. Due to the water helping to make you buoyant and lighter this very light form of exercise minimises impact to your body.

Floatation devices and other water equipment used such as webbed gloves, floats, noodles and resistance bands can also be used.

£20 per session (this does not include you own pool entry)


Personal Training

Personal training is offered in your own home or place of your choice. Samantha specialises in special populations. This means things that need special attention such as ante-natal, post-natal, mental health, high blood pressure, injuries, aliments, cancer rehabilitation etc.

You may only want one session with a programme written up for you to follow within your own time or you may want a regular session.

If you are looking for a trainer who will bully you to reach your goals, I am not the instructor for you. I will support you, checking your technique whilst making your training worthwhile and enjoyable. I adopt a less formal, friendly relaxed approach

£30 per session
