Professional guidance toward your athletic goals with qualified personal trainers.
Would you also like a beautiful, toned and healthy body, lose weight or less back pain in a professional and medically responsible way? Where fitness stops, we start! We always set an athletic goal that you work toward, for both recreational and competitive athletes.
We recognize that everyone is unique and needs a personal training program to achieve their goals. You train based on intensive one-on-one sessions, creating a unique dynamic with your personal trainer and allowing you to focus on one thing : your results.
Online Coaching is for those who prefer to be coached remotely. In this way, you are tracked via schedules (monthly/quarterly depending on the objective and training level). This can be both for nutrition and sports programmes.Online Coaching
As a company, do you wish to keep your employees fit and healthy in the workplace so that absenteeism decreases, people are more productive and happier? Then corporate fitness is the solution.Corporate fitness
Working out with a Personal Trainer is not the same as working out with a friend. A Personal Trainer will teach correct exercise execution and correct where necessary, motivate you as well as put together a challenging training programme based on your capabilities.
We've all experienced it before: you start off in high spirits after your resolution to exercise, but after a while motivation drops and you think to yourself: I don't feel much like it anyway, so skipping a workout isn't so bad, is it?
A Personal Trainer/Coach will then make all the difference. You won't easily cancel an appointment with your trainer because you 'don't feel like it'. And since you train more, you will achieve your goal faster than if you go to the gym on your own.
With a Personal Trainer, you perform only the exercises that help you reach your goal in the most efficient way for maximum results.
Better results are also achieved because a Personal Trainer constantly evaluates and adjusts your training programme and looks for alternative exercises. Given the principle of 'progressive overload' a Personal Trainer will ensure that your training schedule is just tough enough to achieve lasting results.
Standard training programmes and the quick one-off demonstration of a particular exercise obviously have two disadvantages: correct posture and execution are not evaluated and the potential risk of injury increases as the wrong posture is maintained throughout your training sessions.
A qualified Personal Trainer will always teach you the right posture and technique to train injury-free, allowing you to continue training in a safe way and, of course, make faster progress.
Walking into a gym for the first time can be an intimidating experience, but personal training is a good and easy way to put you at ease. It's important to remember that no one starts out in top condition, but anyone can get in shape. All you need is a little self-confidence and hard work during the time you have available.
We also want our clients to enjoy their time with us. Our goal is to make the atmosphere as motivating, fun and supportive as possible. Our belief is that when our clients train in a positive and supportive atmosphere, they are infinitely more likely to achieve stunning results.
Yes indeed! Researchers at the University of Coventry, in an experimental study (published in March 2018), showed what happens when you let people work out in a fitness centre, but don't give them a customised training schedule: unfortunately, pretty much nothing ...
Gyms where you can train with a low-cost subscription are popping up like mushrooms. Great of course to get people exercising, but a downside is that gym-goers with no fitness experience are usually left to their own devices after an initial programme or are only sporadically given new standard programmes.
The results of this study - at least for fitness professionals - were hardly surprising:

For anyone who wants to build muscle, lose weight, just get fitter, needs rehabilitation or is struggling with back and other problems.Contact
Extensive training and years of experience in Personal Training have ensured that we have gradually become the reference in Flemish Brabant when it comes to strictly individual fitness guidance for various goals.
A busy job, family life and social activities often push sports to the background. Nevertheless, you feel the need to be active and feel better. That is why many people buy a fitness subscription or running shoes. This is often done without guidance, which means the desired fitness results do not materialise. Giving up early then lurks dangerously close around the corner.
We cannot perform miracles but in the years as a personal trainer both at KULeuven and elsewhere, we have helped many people achieve their most diverse physical goals. With our science-based approach, we make sure you get a sustainable physical result.
Because sitting is more taxing on the back than lying down or standing, people with sedentary jobs are more likely to suffer from developing back pain. Core Stability is not about exhausting your abdominal muscles on a piece of fitness equipment, but is about properly and selectively tightening all core muscles so that they form a muscle corset, so to speak, that protects the spine and optimizes energy transfer between the upper and lower body.
This method of exercise reduces lower back pain and, given enough effort, can also be used to control the effects of a herniated disc.
As an aspiring recreational or elite athlete, you constantly want to improve and optimize your physical abilities! We offer a customized program to maximize your athletic abilities and reduce the risk of injury. Explosivity, strength and agility will be improved. In short: you will be able to perform better athletically.
One-on-one workouts to build strength and/or muscle mass with attention to technique and the correct execution of compound exercises in which different muscle groups are trained at the same time and should form the basis for every athlete.
One-on-one workouts in which the Olympic lifts are taught/improved to improve fast power and explosiveness of the body or specific to a sport.
A metabolic workout increases your strength and endurance, burns fat and increases your metabolism to boost energy and weight loss. In addition to selecting the best workouts to lose weight, a personal trainer helps people lose weight by giving advice on nutrition and adjusting your diet.
As Personal Trainer, we set ourselves the task of designing exercises that fit within the framework of a rehabilitation program. Our education allows us to understand not only the nature and extent of the injury, but also what limitations you as a client have in your physical abilities.
Regarding rehabilitation training after a herniated disc, we have already accumulated extensive experience in Leuven and achieved excellent results. We certainly refer to the experiences of our clients listed throughout our website!
A personal trainer will teach you how to perform exercises correctly and safely. If you are starting out in fitness or training with weights, it is highly recommended that you learn how to perform exercises. Proper technique is the basic requirement to avoid the risk of injury, recruit target muscles and maximize progression, with or without a trainer.
As Personal Trainer, we are obviously very passionate about health and fitness and want to help you achieve your fitness goals. Our workouts will both challenge and motivate you to lead you to your full athletic potential. We will help take those few steps further that you might not have taken if you were training on your own.
A Personal Trainer will tailor a training program to your needs, abilities and goals, which a regular gym cannot provide. Since everyone responds differently to training and nutrition, as a personal trainer, we will monitor, adjust and ramp up your training plan based on your needs so you get results faster.
We are there 100% for you. We listen to your needs, review your physical capabilities and motivate you in your personal training plan.
Everyone is welcome. We are here for men and women, young or old, for the recreational athlete or the experienced athlete striving for better performance.
Redert has the University education to perform this job responsibly and is also affiliated with KULeuven.
The days when personal training was only for Hollywood stars are a thing of the past. We provide varied workouts for beginners and advanced students.
No standard programs but training based on your abilities and athletic goals to achieve targeted results!
