Michael McLeary Personal Trainer
My name is Michael McLeary, I am a fully qualified REPs Level 3 Personal Trainer and McLeary Personal Training is my freelance company that was set up in 2012. I am a passionate trainer with a friendly approach to my workouts, and have a dedication to helping my clients achieve their goals.
I first got interested in fitness around 16 years old when I left school and signed a full time two year apprenticeship with Millwall Football Club. This means I spent a vast amount of my time in gyms and exercising on a daily basis, experiencing different types of training and fitness approaches. I had also been at the club 7 years prior to this, so was able to see the progression of exercises from when I was a beginner just starting out aged 9, to when I was 18 years old and in peak condition.
Aside from my regular gym and circuit workouts I witnessed and experienced various rehabilitation exercises through myself and other players returning from injury. I observed the progression made throughout that period through to full recovery, which now enables me to effectively treat clients who have injuries whether they are recent or long term problems.
I have also worked in an office for over 5 and a half years as a Junior Project Manager at a construction company, so have some life experience outside the world of fitness as well. Since then though, I have turned my skills to personal training and getting qualified in various aspects of fitness to help others stay enthusiastic about fitness and exercise, but most of all, help them achieve their goals.
I have experience working with clients with varying goals and ambitions. Although many of my clients look to lose weight, tone up or just get healthier, I have also worked with clients who wish to train as preparation for a sport/event, such as young aspiring athletes and also those who are in need of some rehabilitation work.
I have also trained clients with current or previous health issues and muscle/joint problems, for example, returning to exercise after a heart attack, correcting lower back problems including lordosis and kyphosis, increasing the strength and flexibility of weak joints such as rotator cuff injuries, and much more. Furthermore, I have worked in numerous gyms so am able to incorporate that experience together with my past footballing regime, to create exciting and effective workouts for clients.
