Online Training

The Coronavirus lock-downs of 2020 have seen a massive change in the way people improve their health and fitness and the massive overnight evolution of Online Training saw many personal trainers scrambling to find a way to help their clients. Online training is nothing new to myself as I have been using software for this since 2009 (see Ptenhance) and have connected with people all over the world since then. For a long time I avoided trying promoting this on the internet for I simply did not have enough time or energy to cater for the demands this type of work entailed.

However, since April 2020 I had a large amount of requests and I have now begun to change my business structure to allow time for consultations and online programs for people all over the world.

How It Works

The first session involves a 60 minute Zoom call with myself where I try to find out as much information about you as possible. For example I will need to find out things like:

  • What are your goals?
  • Do you have an injury at the moment?
  • What previous injuries have you had?
  • Do you have any other health problems?
  • Have you seen or are you seeing a therapist?
  • What exercise program are you currently doing?
  • What equipment you have access to?
  • How much time do you have to train?

I may also ask about nutrition and other lifestyle factors if it is relevant to your objective.

During this call I will also ask you to perform several exercise assessments for me to determine what type of program you will require. These tests will vary from person to person as it all depends on the nature of your goals and needs. Sometimes I will email you prior to the call with a series of tests to complete yourself so I can ask you the results of these during our meeting.

Once we have had the call I will then create your Online Program.

Creating The Program

Exercise Programs that I write for you will be available for you to view complete with video clips and descriptions to view online, printable summaries that you can take into the gym, a place where you can record your workouts and view reports of your progress.

These programs allow for you to execute every exercise EXACTLY the way I would show you in the gym. 

We know that exercise technique is vital to the success of your training program and to be honest this is possibly the main reason people get in touch with me in the first place. Firstly they are not sure of what to do, and secondly they are not sure they are doing the exercises correctly either.

The Ptenhance software helps me to overcome both of these problems and give you 100% certainty and confidence in your training program. 

The most difficult part comes down to me trying to determine the right exercises and methods. This can be quite difficult at the best of times and I may need several follow up consultation to be certain we are on the right path. With over 15 years of experience of training with people with all types of injuries and even professional athletes I have an extensive amount of knowledge to fall back on. This is what has allowed me to work successfully for this long in this very complex and tricky field within the health and fitness industry. 

I do not claim to have all the answers, but I do claim to endlessly pursue a solution to your problem and work with you until you reach your goal.

To book a session all you need to do is send me an email and we can discuss where you are located in the world to get the right time zone and then find out what the best time for each of us is. For all ongoing review sessions this same process will apply.

An Online Training Success Story

"I discovered Nick at No Regrets by absolute luck.  Every day I ran for 20 years, it was my passion but I’d started to get intense knee/patella pain.  I was only in my late 30’s.  After trailing around visiting every expert I could find I eventually ended up having major knee surgery but a few weeks after the surgery it become very clear it had changed nothing.  All the experts, the physio’s and the podiatrists I had seen at the time were not able to clearly identify the cause.  During a particular frustrating day I stumbled across some google reviews for Nick at No Regrets.  Without trying to sound too dramatic it changed my life.

Because of my past history and complications including my back I decided to make the flight interstate to visit Nick in person.  After an initial consultation, we have since continued to work together through the phone every six to eight weeks adjusting my fitness program. 

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that my body felt very broken when I initially met Nick.  I had no strength in my legs from years of only running and a locked up thoracic spin /back.  Through Nicks incredible knowledge and practical experience, he immediately determined what the issues were and it wasn’t my knees. He helped me build strength slowly using exercise I could actually do and that didn’t blow my knees out. 

Every six to eight weeks I make a call to Nick and we walk through the exercises he has given me detailing where I found complications or what I found easy. The programs have always been super interesting because they challenge you mentally and physically, keeping you engaged – people at my gym often comment on them.

I am now the strongest and healthiest I have ever been. Where simple things caused me pain and were unachievable I am now able to do so much I could never manage, like long hikes and riding my bike with the kids.

I’ve met a lot of people in my time in the fitness and rehabilitation areas and Nick has knowledge like no one I have ever met.  He’s incredibly generous with his time and always responds to any query with detailed help and information.  I would be absolutely lost without his help." - Catherine Cantwell

Shoulder Pain PDF Report

Out of all the injuries to work with, shoulder and neck pain would be the most difficult. There is just so many factors that contribute to pain, it is no surprise this injury is so common.

Many rehab programs fail to recognize that the shoulder joint is very unique and a delicate process of choosing exercises is required. The shoulder is the most dynamic joint in the body which is great for performing athletic movements like throwing a ball or serving in tennis, but this incredible mobility comes at a cost to the stability of the joint. Even though this report is about the shoulder many times we’re not really looking at the shoulder. It’s really about how the entire system works together.

This report firstly explains the 3 Key Concepts to shoulder function, how to assess and correct the underlying cause of the problem and how to integrate movements with the rest of the body. We provide 95 pages of material and each exercise, mobility, stability and important topic there is a link to a video placed within the text to guide you on exactly how to complete the program. At the end of the book is a 6 phase program that takes you through each of the important steps, we know and have proven to work for over 12 years. It is time to stop putting up with your pain and get rid of it for good!
