PT Workspace Making Fitness Fun!

Coming up this September PT workspace is taking park in Rough Runner which is Inspired by TV game shows like Gladiators, Total Wipeout and Ninja Warrior with a 10k run throw in the mix. As abit of fun we have gathered a troop of incredibly talented personal trainers which work alongside us to form a team ready to take on the obstacle course in 6 weeks time. The aim of the game is to get through the obstacle course as fast as possible, but with many of these team assault courses its as much about teamwork as it is about winning. Of course we still want to win! So we will be putting our best foot forward over the next few weeks to make sure we have a fighting chance. Now this is not as serious as tough mudder and we are definatly not pretending it is, but sometimes you just have to have some fun!

We intend to…

  • Exercise obviously beforehand, that’s what personal trainers do.
  • Eat, Eat, Eat energy will be a must… Any excuse to eat pasta the day before!
  • Never leave a man behind, teamwork makes the dreamwork.
  • Possibly carry the marketing officer Hannah, because she is really short and might not make it over some of the hurdles.
  • Run like we are being chased by a herd of Elephants.
  • Smile as much as possible!

Like Willie Wonka and the chocolate factory we have two golden tickets left remaining, If you would like to join PT Workspace in our crazy excursion on Sunday 9th Of September please contact Nathank@ptworkspace.co.uk.

Are You Losing Clients?

Its is a simple enough questions and one which could leave you feeling deflated when you are still giving 100%. Every personal trainer goes through the motions of losing clients, certain times of year can be more prone to seeing a drop off in clientele than other months. Such as summer when many clients go away on holiday or during the winter months when clients can lose motivation. PT Workspace studio manager Nathan has some tips to help build your clientele back up again, so you can restore some of that confidence in the job you love.

Healthy Food Business Venture Opportunity…

pt studio

2018 has been an incredibly exciting year for PT Workspace having gone from strength to strength at our private personal training studio in Islington, which we launched in 2016. So naturally we want to bring luxury affordable studio hire to personal trainers all across London, as well as attainable fitness for those looking for a personal trainer. With our eyes firmly on the prize, the next step is a new studio and we feel confident with the location we have found in Farringdon, close to central & Exmouth Market with great transport links.

healthy food

We love what we do and the sense of community we are building at PT Workspace, which is why we would like to offer the right individual/ individuals the opportunity to join us in this exciting venture. The space we will be leasing will be big enough for the right business to open their very own healthy food venture above our studio, meaning you will be able to offer your wonderful products to the independent trainers and clients which come through our doors.

healthy food

If opening up or expanding your very own health food business is the next step in your career, than we would love to talk with you! Of course we ask that your product is inline with the health/fitness industry which PT Workspace is aligned with.

PT Workspace Football Club…

There is nothing  quite like getting together with an awesome group of individuals and blowing off some steam on the football pitch. Whatever week you’ve had up until this point, is left at the side of the pitch before the whistle goes and the excitement begins. Specially with the World Cup now in motion, it could not be a more inspiring time to get outside in the late evening sun and break a sweat.

Summer Time at PT Workspace

This summer we have had great fun renovating the front entrance of PT Workspace, into a user friendly space for personal trainers and clients to utilise. When the sun has everyone smiling, we know that you want to feel those rays too, so we have given you the best of both worlds! Sunshine outside or a cool personal training space on the inside! Although we anticipated a good reception to the newly laid astro turf, it has been amazing to watch the personal trainers we work with making the most out of the additional equipment too! From Boxing bags to sledges we have your summer covered!

Take a sneak peek around PT Workspace…

Below the studio manger Nathan has put together a short video, showing you how many sets could be done with just the a tyre alone! Including a random interval from the next door neighbour.

See if you can add one set to your summer routine…
