Personal Training with Jennie


Jennie is a qualified Personal Trainer and Yoga Alliance Certified teacher who has practised yoga for over 15 years. Jennie also specialises in functional training with resistance weights. The combination of these two different approaches to looking after the body is very much reflected in her personal training style. 




“I believe in encouraging self-acceptance. I believe that it is not about being skinny or a certain size. Instead, it is about being strong, healthy, energetic, and, above all, comfortable in your own skin.” (Jennie, Absolute Yoga, Crosby)



Jennie’s personal training sessions are based on the principles of functional exercise and the yoga asana practice. Accordingly, clients can expect to use a variety of resistance weights including kettle bells, dumbbells, barbells, medicine balls and body weight to work on developing strength, core power and body awareness. However, fundamental to each session is the integration of body, breath and mind as this is where the real magic happens both inside and outside of training sessions.


Programmes are uniquely designed to meet the goals and needs of each individual client such as:


  • Weight loss
  • Increased muscle tone and definition
  • Increase in muscle mass
  • Increase in core strength
  • Improvement in cardiovascular fitness
  • Increase in flexibility and range of movement

Personal Training with Jennie and Weight Loss

If losing weight/reducing body fat is one of your fitness goals then Jennie can design you an exercise programme and nutritional plan to achieve that goal. 


Jennie believes in looking after the body in accordance with the first Niyama, Saucha (cleanliness and purification). Accordingly, she encourages and supports her clients to eat clean and look after the body through yoga and resistance training.  However, Jennie also believes in encouraging self-acceptance and that it is not about being skinny or a certain size. Instead, it is about being healthy and comfortable in your own skin. 




What type of exercises will I perform in a typical personal training session?

TridyThe type of training you will complete in each session will depend on your health and fitness goals. For example, if your goal is to lose weight then don’t plod along on the treadmill – hit the weights! Using resistance weights such as kettle bells, dumbbells and body weight, with the right number of sets and reps, will really get your heart rate up and you will see some amazing results from this type of training. However, if you are already quite fit and looking to build muscle or get stronger then your training session will involve working at a lower set and rep range but with heavier weights. 


No matter what type of programme you complete, your sessions will involve elements of yoga such as deep breathing, stretching, body awareness and relaxation. 


How can adding yoga to a personal training session help me to meet my fitness goals?


Weight loss is a common goal of people who make the decision to use a personal trainer. A client looking to lose weight will benefit significantly from an endurance based exercise programme and nutritional advice. However, adding elements of yoga can also assist them in achieving their weight loss goal. 


Unfortunately, not many studies have rigorously examined the relationship between yoga and weight loss. However, the few studies that do exist suggest that yoga may be associated with weight loss or maintenance as a result of:


  • The calories burned during a yoga class
  • The regular practice of yoga may allow for additional exercises to be performed outside of the yoga class as a consequence of reduced back and joint pain
  • Yoga heightens mindfulness, improves mood and reduces stress which may help reduce food intake
  • Yoga may encourages a deeper connection between mind and body which may lead to enhanced awareness of satiety and the discomfort of overeating

Accordingly, adding elements of yoga to a weight loss personal training programme is intended to assist with behavioural change, weight loss and subsequent maintenance.


Where does the training take place?


Sessions take place at Absolute Yoga. Home training is also available.



How often should I train?

It would depend on your programme and other factors such as how much time you have to dedicate to your fitness plan. Clients are given an exercise programme to take away and complete either at home or at their gym.
