Fully Inclusive Touring in Asia SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2012 THE SUN-HERALD 57 ENHANCE YOURSELF Stronger, fitter, faster, happier Jason Mountney considers the benefits of finding a compatible personal trainer. No walk in the park Authorities have different rules regarding personal trainers. The City of Sydney lets trainers operate without permits or charges in its parks, though they are banned from the Royal Botanic Gardens and have to be registered in the Domain. In Woollahra, trainers must register with the council and pay a $200 fee. Waverley also restricts its parks and reserves to registered, fee-paying trainers, with popular areas of the beachside authority banned from all training. Randwick and Manly also charge for personal trainers to use their parks. There are no regulations about how much medical proficiency a personal trainer needs, but St John Ambulance recommends asking four questions before you sign up: Does the trainer have a defibrillator?; where is it kept?; can they use it properly?; do they have first-aid training? 'I'm a mother on a mission. Ninety-nine per cent of my clients are mums.' Jenny Dugard, Body Beyond Baby When Georgia Glover moved back to the inner west from Sydney's south, she thought it would be easy to transfer her membership at a nationwide gym chain to a venue closer to her home. She was wrong. "They made it painful," says the 28-year-old real-estate agent from Annandale. "To be honest, I won't rush back to a gym membership." But righteous indignation won't keep you fit, so when she saw a personal trainer running his clients past her Leichhardt office, Glover made a decision to approach him. ''I found him friendly and easy to talk to," says Glover, who now trains with the trainer from Bulldog Balmain. "And he trains in a park a short walk from my office." Glover takes three or four sessions a week with Balmain Bulldog and is working on "building strength". Proximity and approachability are two popular criteria when choosing a personal trainer. Motivation can fall off if you have to travel half an hour to an exercise class, and no one wants to get sweaty with someone who intimidates or scares them. Other people may have special circumstances that trainers need to take into account. "I am a mother on a mission," says Jenny Dugard (pictured above, far left), who runs Body Beyond Baby in the eastern suburbs. Dugard's business specialises in training expectant and recent mothers. "Ninety-nine per cent of my clients are mums." Dugard says mothers have different expectations when they arrive. "We provide an onsite nanny service at each of our group exercise sessions and for all one-on-one clients they are welcome to bring their child to the session or we can organise a nanny to either be onsite with their child or at their home while they come to train." She says many trainers don't take pre- or postnatal women's needs into account when devising programs. "Some of the stories I hear are scary; new mums with babies of just six weeks old being told that sit ups will help to fix their abdominal separation and strengthen their 'core' ," she says. "But sit-ups are one of the worst possible exercises you could be doing at that stage. "Also, mums are made to run, jump or skip -- not recommended for pelvic floor. "It is essential to know what is going on with mums on the inside so there is a series of testing and cues that I highly recommend all new mums are put through."
