Gary came to me as an experienced runner, obstacle course racer and triathlete, having completed an Ironman. His goals were to learn about strength training, increase his upper body strength and improve his overall fitness. Despite being in great physical condition Gary had never invested any time in strength training and concentrated on his cardio.
Over the 10 weeks Gary spent time learning and focussing on the following key lifts:
deadlifts, squats, bench press, strict press, push press and the clean.
Here are his final weightlifting stats:
100kg 3 rep max
100kg 1 rep max
90kg 3 rep max
70kg 3 rep max
60kg 3 rep max
47.5kg 1 rep max
45kg 3 rep max
52.5kg 1 rep max
50kg 3 rep max
40kg 5 rep max
As well as focussing on strength training we spent time improving Gary’s functional fitness and working to also increase his speed, endurance and flexibility. This was done through extremely varied and goal-orientated workouts which combined strength and cardio elements.
The main test used as a benchmark to measure improvements in Gary’s overall fitness was the Forza Fitness 50. Gary undertook this workout on 16th July and then again on his final session on 12th September.

“As an obstacle race and triathlon fanatic, I wanted to develop my upper body and core strength to improve my performances in these events. When I realised I had little or no idea of how to do this I turned to Liza, thanks to her I feel fitter, stronger faster. I enjoyed every minute of my PT sessions and if you need help achieving your fitness goals, this is the place!”
