Personal trainer Kevin Marshall of Positive Steps in Bury St Edmunds is passionate about helping people reach their fitness goals and achieve a greater sense of wellbeing.

“The reason I called my business Positive Steps is because I want to help people take positive steps to improve their fitness and well-being,” he explains.

“It’s about working with people to become more active and healthy and make important lifestyle changes.”

Kevin works in partnership with Bury Physio in their gym and offers his services to the gym users.  He works closely with his clients to provide fitness and nutritional advice and create a regime that fits around their lifestyle.

Kevin has recently (August 2018) undertaken some additional training in adapting  and developing exercise for older adults. He has completed a Level 3 Award in Exercise Considerations for Independently Active, Older Adults and will incorporate this into his training plans for personal training clients.

“Some of the people I work with are sporty people, some are just ‘ordinary’ people who recognise the importance of being fit and healthy  and some have pre existing health problems and are working on their fitness to improve their health and wellbeing,”

‘It does for you what the name suggests! I’ve been working with Kevin for several months now and started to feel the benefit at an early stage. The tailored sessions have improved my overall health and fitness, in addition to helping me successfully recover from an injury. I now have more confidence to do the things I really want to because of the strength, flexibility and cardio vascular exercises that we work on. Kevin understands how best to achieve my goals and whilst the sessions are necessarily challenging, they are also varied and enjoyable. The plan we have developed together is enabling me to perform better at work and in my leisure time. I would thoroughly recommend Positive Steps, from my own experience, the improvement both surprised and delighted me.’

Personal Training will work for you if:

– Your Physiotherapist has referred you as part of your treatment or recovery

– You have never been able to stick to a training routine

– You have been trying a new diet every few months and always end up back at the same weight or heavier

– You are tired of doing the same old workout and getting nowhere

What does Personal Training do?

Every aspect of your lifestyle affects your health and fitness.  Personal training recognises that we are all different and will take your lifestyle, fitness levels and goals into account and build you a unique programme to fit around your life.  Most importantly with personal training we will help you to reach your goals.

As part of this we can look at the following factors:

  • Diet – what, when & how much to eat
  • Stress – and its effects
  • Sleep – do you get enough/too much?
  • Flexibility- posture
  • Injuries – past, present and prevention
  • Goal setting – decide which goals mean the most to you

If you have not done a lot of exercise of late, it is never too late to start to look after your health and wellbeing! We work with many mature people with medical conditions and adapt exercises to suit all fitness levels.

Personal training will….

Help you acheive your goals, from weight loss to improved fitness to marathon training

Introduce you to different options to keep you training effectively and keep it interesting

Play a key role in maintaining health and wellbeing

When working in conjunction with physiotherapy, it will assist in managing and bring about improvements with long-term conditions

Why chose personal training at Bury Physio?

Kevin has over 27 years of personal training experience and has maintained a high level of personal fitness for all his adult life.

But what really makes him different is that he understands that each of his clients are unique and so each training programme is customised to match their individual goals and abilities.

Whether you want to lose weight, get fitter, start training for a marathon, or simply want to factor in some ‘me’ time, Kevin can devise a programme that will meet you needs.

He is completely flexible and will train individuals or groups.
