What Are Your Training Goals?
You already have a fair idea of why you wish to start a training programme. You wouldn’t have arrived at this site if that were not the case. But in order to fully realise your goal you have to take action. This is the only way you can transform your body and your dreams into reality.
At Marc Dressen Personal Training we are focused wholeheartedly on bringing you the finest, most up to date training programmes that best serve your needs.
We have a wide variety of fitness based services you can participate in. At the same time, we do not simply put you on a programme without first exploring your current level of fitness while keeping a clear eye on your desired outcomes.
To give you a clearer picture of what we can do for you, we have outlined the main priorities of a few training packages we have on offer.
But first, let us emphasise the importance of getting to know you – our client. For you to take maximum benefit from our programmes we conduct a series of interviews combined with a full body assessment.
This assessment is pretty detailed and is made up of testing you out in many key areas which include:
- We take all the essential physical measurements, in addition to your weight, so we have an accurate picture of your body shape.
- We conduct tests including blood pressure to find out the state your cardiovascular system.
- We assess your heart rate in various states of exertion to see how well you’ll manage certain exercises at the right intensity.
- We calculate your body composition – the ratio between actual muscle to adipose tissue (fat) you have on your body.
- We put you through actual physical tests: a.) various stretches to see how flexible you are in different situations, and b.) a series of real life practical exercises to gauge your exact beginning level of fitness.
Any fitness programme you do without taking proper cognisance of your actual starting ability – is inherently self-defeating, and in the worst case scenario has the potential to be dangerously injurious to your body and health. Leave it to us professionals to ensure you get the best possible chance at success by first getting you set up the right way.

Putting the details of your initial assessment into perspective, we are able to structure a very sophisticated plan of action for you.
We have packed the very best of exercising methodology and scientifically proven nutrition together – all geared for maximum fat loss results. Call this our toolbox of weight loss secrets and nifty tricks. From here we can devise a programme that is 100% tailored to those many aspects that make you an individual.
We constantly monitor your progress throughout the entire duration of your training. The majority of people trying so hard to lose weight give up the quest too easily. This most important determinant of success with losing weight is consistency. We show you how to stay firm on your objectives while providing you ample ongoing support and motivation.
To make sticking to your dietary plan easier we provide nutritional support in the form of a reliable food delivery system. So you don’t have to become bogged down with carefully measuring ingredients and spending extra time preparing your meals. Learn more about what makes our approach to weight loss so much better than the rest.
We have mastered the art of balancing the factors which bring about supreme muscular development.
Having stronger muscles means they can effectively produce more work and can exert increased levels force and power. This is the principle behind strength training.
‘Thicker’ muscles are those which have grown in a similar manner. We call this hypertrophy or muscle building as you know it.
But it doesn’t stop there. For either of these processes to work you require ample rest and nutrition. By taking your unique situation into account, we carefully select the best resistance exercises together with the appropriate weights and frequency that will see you make the most gains.
We do not, as a rule, want you to fall prey to ‘overtraining’ and injuring yourself, so you are coached very closely to ensure you observe the proper form when exercising. Combining all important rest, training and nutrition we structure a comprehensive schedule which is easy to follow.

Taekwondo is a ‘no holds barred’ fighting art which originated in Korea in the 1940s by combining elements of Karate (Japanese) and Kung Fu (Chinese) and fusing it with more traditional Korean martial arts forms. It is arguably one of the most ‘physical’ of martial arts, and practitioners of this art are known to be fast and deadly, with a variety of devastating kicking techniques at their disposal.
