I’ve been training with Clarice since December 2013. We talked through what I wanted from the sessions, then Clarice put together a training plan specific for me. We meet twice a week at Crystal Palace Sports Centre to work on my cardio and strength training.
I find having a personal trainer has been really beneficial. It’s motivated me and I have seen the results quite quickly. My overall fitness level has increased, I feel stronger and this has translated to better running.
Having Clarice as a trainer has the added benefit that she is a runner herself so really does understand the needs of someone training for a marathon. She is personable, well mannered, attentive, encouraging and she WILL push you. However, I am glad she is definitely not a ‘drill sergeant’ as that would not have worked with me. And, she will flex the training schedule depending on progress and time constraints.
