Testimonial

​ Dan makes exercise fun, the time really flies and no session is ever the same. It's far better than any gym or exercise video! I've definitely lost weight and toned up, I get reminded when people comment as it's often hard to notice the change in yourself. I've also met some great people which has played a part in why I keep going back. For those thinking of coming I'd say it can work for anyone and everyone, dan can tailor exercises to meet your needs. It can be hard at first but the pain makes it all worthwhile (you know it's working and it gives you a sense of achievement) and I promise it does get easier.

​ I like the social side of bootcamp and the alternating sessions. The benefits of doing boot camp for me are that I'm a lot fitter, have lost weight and have toned muscle. If you were thinking for joining a boot camp session then do, its hard work but the results are worth it.

When my gym stopped offering the classes I liked, I started searching for an approach more tailored to me, for working out. This flexible plan was exactly what I needed. Before, I could work out 6 days a week and not lose a single pound. I’ve just always been heavy. With BodyBlast, I lost several inches off my waist and went down 4 dress sizes. My husband has started working out with me, too—it’s been great! Thanks BodyBlast!

I had 3 little ones in a 4-year period. After my last child, the baby weight just wouldn’t budge. I was exhausted all the time from chasing around 3 children, but the baby weight remained! Then, thanks to a friend’s advice, I decided to sign up for this coaching plan to help me stay on track with exercise and healthy meal planning. I’ve lost 14 pounds already with BodyBlast Coaching, and I’m feeling much more toned and fit! My goal is to lose about 10 more, but with my new healthy habits it will be a breeze!

Testimonial

I gave birth to my first child a few months ago. It isn’t easy juggling work, motherhood, and fitness at the same time so I needed an efficient solution. I’ve been a member of BodyBlast Coaching for six weeks and I’m feeling great! The program fits into my schedule and is very easy to stick with because it’s tailored to me. So far I have lost 17lbs and 4 inches from my stomach and I'm so pleased with how it's going. I would recommend this to any busy mum trying to stay fit and healthy!

Testimonial

It’s hard to find a flexible weight loss solution that can fit into a busy schedule. A few months ago my friend suggested BodyBlast Coaching because it worked so well for her. I have to admit; it was a struggle at first. Honestly, it’s hard work! But it’s easier to stay on track when you have a coach to help you, and it’s worth putting in the effort—I’ve almost reached my goal of losing 40 lbs, and my coworkers keep telling me how great I look. I tell them all about BodyBlast!

Testimonial

After several failed dieting attempts, I was ready to give up. When I heard about BodyBlast I figured that I would try it, but I didn’t really know if it would work. BodyBlast really knows what they’re doing—Bodyblast Coaching combine several approaches by providing meal plans, online coaching, workouts, and goal tracking. I have been cooking and eating healthier and actually ENJOYING my workouts for the first time ever! I’ve lost 20 pounds, too! I am so glad I’m raising my children in a healthier environment, and with BodyBlast’s quick workouts, I still have time left over to spend with my family.

My name is Dominic Fisher and i am currently on the junior British Powerlifting team. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside Daniel Cook through Vigour personal training and the UEA sportspark. A recurrent lower back injury had put a halt to my competitive year which is why i turned to Daniel for advice on rehabilitation, through exercises to strengthen my lower back and improve my posture. Daniel’s advice has been invaluable and his reassurance has enabled me to recover fully from my injury and begin training again for competition. Daniel is a very knowledgable and approachable personal trainer who uses modern theory on exercise in order to achieve fast and effective results.

Vigour personal trained The Darkness to get the band in shape before their 2006 European tour. Norfolk based Personal Trainer Daniel Cook puts us through our paces. We need to be fit for the year ahead. We do a daily hour and a half at 6pm before dinner.

Testimonial

As my trainer, I had complete confidence in Dan. He worked me hard without de-motivating me – exercises were sometimes difficult but achievable with effort. At first I had 2-3 sessions per week, then 2 and now just 1. The sessions lasted an hour and consisted of various weights, ball and boxing exercises. When I asked for guidance on how I could improve my results Dan told me the best types of foods to help me and what times to eat. After just 2 weeks my body felt firmer – after 6 weeks my body confidence had improved tremendously and by 2 months I had a smaller pair of jeans! I still feel good after 4 months and still see results depending on the amount of effort I put in – has improved my general day to day confidence. (In Jackie’s 4 month re-assessment 15/12/2008, Jackie achieved 7% body fat reduction and lost 3.5cm off waist and 5cm off hips.) The fact that Dan comes to my house was a major factor in my continuing commitment. I have had various gym memberships over 10 years but none have given me the results I have seen from personal training. One to one tuition also means the exercises are performed with maximum results without causing injury. I have no reservations at all in recommending Personal Training – Everyone should do it!

Testimonial

The things I like most about Personal Training with Dan is the convenience, flexibility of dates/times, the variation, and the results. I have lost weight, have more energy, and have lost cm in key places. For people who struggle to find time for exercise, Personal Training is a great kick start and combined with healthier eating, after only a short time it gives results, thanks for all your support,

Dan has been instrumental in helping me reconnect with exercise and made it enjoyable! He has guided me to look at my diet and make sensible effective changes, which have helped me loose weight and made me feel better in myself. Thank you Dan for the kick start.

Personal Training

 

Vigour Personal Training is mobile, we come you! So you don’t need to worry about what you wear, be self-conscious in front of other people, need a gym membership, or rush to get to your session.
We train where ever is best for you. Where that’s in your living room, garden or other agreed upon location and we bring equipment with us. If you have your own equipment this can be incorporated too but is not necessary.

 

Session lengths

 

Vigour offers 2 different session lengths, a 30min intense session, and a 60min for beginners/health conditions/less intense session.
Why 30-minute sessions?
 The latest research shows that the more intense you work out the greater the effect it has on your metabolism, leading to an afterburn effect where your body continues to burn fat long after your session has finished. This afterburn effect can last up to 48 hours after your session with the right stimulus, meaning your 30-minute workout is still working for you 2 days later while you rest and recover! But high intensity cannot be maintained for long without the need to drop down to continue. So the intensity that you can maintain for 30 minutes is greater than that you can maintain for 60 mins, so the 30-minute session is the winner, longer afterburn and its over and down with quicker. The intensity is still personalised to your ability and tolerance, so it is YOUR Intense!
Muscle is your most metabolically active tissue in the body. Not only does it create all calorie burning movement, but it also requires a lot of energy to maintain itself. Bottom line – more muscle equals a faster metabolism and less body fat. But do not worry you won’t get all bulky as for one, most women do not have the hormones to get big naturally, and even if you do have the genetic tendencies, we adjust the rest periods so your body does not get the chance to release those hormones before they are flushed away. In women, muscles tend to get tighter, more toned, and denser, rather than bigger like they do in men. So you will just get leaner, tighter and more toned.

Swedish Massage

 

Norwich Life can get tough! Home life can be stressful, Work even more so! 
But you don’t have to suffer!
You deserve a treat, to be pampered, to move pain-free .. to have an hour or 2 for YOU!

Bootcamp sessions

 

Vigour runs Bootcamp sessions under The BEST Bootcamp Norwich.
Sessions are every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from The Pavillon Recreation Ground in Cringleford near the UEA.
Sessions are from 7-7.45pm all year round.
Sessions are outdoors, so be prepared for the different weather conditions. But it’s nice to train outside, with many members even saying they
enjoy training in the rain more so than the sun! Once you’re warmed up and ready to go, even on the coldest days, the weather isn’t a problem.
Bootcamp is your most cost-effective option and you can make new friends into the bargain.

Group training

 

Group Training sessions are a cross between Personal Training and Bootcamp.
You can train with your friends and usually outside, but with more personal attention the Bootcamp but at a lower price point than Personal Training.
The Best of both worlds!
  • Split the costs so its cheaper per person
  • Spur each other on to maximise the results
  • Make sure your technique is perfect so you don’t get injured
  • Tailored to each of you so you get the sessions specific to your goals

Private Nordic Walking

 

Nordic Walking is an excellent form of exercise. It is walking using Nordic Walking poles, these poles are lightweight and are designed for increased speed rather than necessarily hill climbing or rambling.
Why Nordic Walking is so effective is because you bring in the muscles of the upper body and trunk, meaning you are using 90-95% of your bodies calorie burning muscle power. This means you can burn up to 25% more calories than walking alone. You walk faster but the intensity is deceptive, as you generally don’t feel that it’s that much harder.
Nordic walking can be booked as private sessions or small groups and can be excellent for many health conditions as well as weight loss.

Online Coaching

Benefits of online coaching

Time efficient– the program takes less than 30 minutes to do and are designed to give you the maximum Bang in a short period of time

Safe – We enable you to record your workout so it can be viewed right alongside the demo so you can see any differences and it’s also submitted to me so I can provide feedback too. This will prevent you learning bad techniques and risking injury.
