Our corporate personal training programs for businesses are designed to help employees improve their overall health and well-being, and are often provided as a benefit by the company, or simply as a one-off team building exercise. The goal of these programs is to help employees maintain healthy habits and lifestyles, which can benefit both the individual and the business as a whole. We can provide fitness sessions in your workplace, in a nearby location such as a park, or small groups of employees can visit our studio in Knutsford on a regular basis. Call us today for a chat about your business’s needs, and we can put together a bespoke package and arrange a visit.

What is Corporate Personal Training?

With the advancement of the digital era, an increasing number of workers spend the most of their working day at their desks – and since Covid, many are even more sedentary, with people working from home more and missing out on the simple exercise of walking to work or to the train station.

Additionally, the work/life balance is shifting. Workplace hours are growing while personal time is diminishing, and unfortunately, exercise is generally the last thing on a busy person’s schedule.

Nxtep partners with companies to deliver corporate fitness training either as one-time activities, for example as team building exercise, or as part of your company’s continuous wellbeing services. In this use case, we can offer group fitness sessions either at your office, close by in a suitable outdoor location, or you can come to the Nxtep fitness studios in Knutsford in a small group of up to 6 people at a time for your sessions.

Sadly I'm leaving the area and would love to take Nxtep with me. I attend the small classes. Chris has created a unique venue that would be hard to match anywhere. The environment is warm and friendly. The sports science work that Chris does behind the scenes to prepare the classes is immense, so that we don't have to worry about it. Just plug and go. Though education is always at hand if required. The classes can be hard work (results driven) but always fun. The equipment is of the highest standard. I've always been around sports but have never experienced anything so positive and rewarding. At 57 there is no way I would ever have thought I'd lift such heavy weights or complete these vigorous exercises. Chris gets you there incrementally and safely but always with great humour. He uses a truly interactive App that plots your progress. A fitness App that actually works, who knew!!Also the clients are lovely and incredibly supportive of each other. Well bloody done Chris!

Over the past alomost 3 years, Nxtep has been central to my personal growth. Chris and his clients make up a fantastic community of people who have helped me develop in many ways. No one lifts a single kg on my behalf or runs a step for me, but as part of a positive and nurturing environment I have been able to consistently, week in, week out, exceed my expactations of what I am capable of. The Physical and mental benefits I have experienced since being a part of this community have been game changing and I owe them a great deal. Aidan.

Chris has been absolutely amazing at supporting me on my fitness journey. Everything is tailored to the individual so it suits everyone no matter what stage you're at. There's a really supportive environment that I haven't experienced elsewhere and the flexibility Chris has shown to me when needed has been amazing. Would never go anywhere else now!

Have been training regularly each week since October at Nxtep and just wanted to give some feedback on my experience which has been nothing short than excellent. Chris, Luca and the team have provided one and one expertise, techniques, dietary plans to help with weight loss, build lean muscle and improve fitness. Can’t shout their praises enough. Good job Nxtep.

I signed up for the 6 week body transformation initially to help me get my pre baby body back after gaining a lot of weight through pregnancy. I lost 8.6kgs in the 6 weeks and have since renewed my membership to continue with my progress and I’m almost down 10kgs in total only 2kgs away from my pre pregnancy weight. I have always hated going to the gym and would dread going initially but now I am 8 weeks in, training 3x per week and feeling fitter and much happier in myself it is something I definitely want to continue. I feel it has really changed my lifestyle and I am making healthier choices everyday with a much more positive outlook, my family have commented that the old Hannah is back as before I felt I’d lost myself since becoming a mum for the first time. Chris and Luca are incredibly knowledgeable about anatomy which was very important to me after having a C-section and I have seen huge improvements in my core and lower back stability. I am also enjoying the new friends I am making from the sessions and never thought I’d say it but I’m looking forward to continuing the training long term and being in the best shape of my life!!

I've really enjoyed the community at Nxtep. I've never been this thrilled get up before 7am to attend the gym. Chris and Luca are brilliant and I feel I've come so far in the year since I started coming. Looking forward to more progress and the pride that comes with working hard

I initially joined Nxtep to get a better grip on my fitness levels after yo-yoing for years with sporadic classes and runs. It was an excellent decision as the sessions are three times a week which quickly got me in a good rhythm. Chris and Luca are both fantastic and very patient with a newbie like myself who had never lifted weights before. They have really helped me understand fitness and weight lifting a lot better. They also adjusted any exercises based on my capabilities as I had an injured shoulder for a while, and with the rehab exercises they gave me that’s now back to normal. I can’t recommend Nxtep enough!

I've been working with the guys at Nxtep for about a year now; I originally joined thinking it would be a short-term thing to lose weight for my wedding.A year later and I'm married, 12kg lighter than when I first started, lifting much heavier weights and am in much better shape in general. Chris and Luca have been amazing with my training; they always challenge me to try new things and to push further, which is really helpful for someone who's training has always seemed to plateau in the past.They've also taught me about health and fitness as a lifestyle; there's so much more to it than lifting some weights or constantly being on a diet, and they always keep things new, fun and flexible. They're also really helpful and approachable guys; I've messaged them lots of times to ask for training tips and advice when I'm going to the gym outside of training hours, and they're always more than happy to help.

I first met Chris in January 2020. I was 12 weeks pregnant with my first child. As a trained dancer, and teacher I was hoping to maintain my levels of fitness whilst minimising the risks of my pregnancy. My early dance training concentrated on training my limbs, while often neglecting my ‘centre’ or ‘core’. It wasn’t until a back injury in 2012 due to weak lower back muscles that my approach to training changed. When I first found out about my pregnancy, I worried about my back and how to keep it strong.Chris helped me through my pregnancy teaching me safe ways of keeping my core strong, helping with my postural alignment as well as addressing some muscular imbalances that I wasn’t aware I had. Most importantly, Chris gave me the confidence to continue training through pregnancy. I knew I was in safe hands. Chris is phenomenally knowledgeable in how our bodies work.May 2022, I am currently pregnant with my second child and still continuing to train with Chris at Nxtep. Luca has also joined the team and is a fantastic addition. They are a great team, and I am very lucky to be trained by them both. I would highly recommend anyone thinking about pre or post natal pregnancy training to consider Nxtep.

Before starting at Nxtep I would go through a cycle of starting to get fit, injuring my back, then avoiding exercise for fear of making it worse. The same happened when I started here, with my over eagerness to improve leading to the same old injury. Chris and Luca kept me motivated and coached me through the recovery process, allowing me to strengthen the areas susceptible to injury and enabling me to carry on where I’d previously have given up. Now I’m lifting ~100kg more than when I first started and the past few years of persistent back injury seem a distant memory. The guys have helped me with my nutrition, my outlook and overcoming what I previously thought I couldn’t. I can’t thank them both enough!

I’ve been working with Chris and the team at Nxtep, and the initially just wanted to get stronger and fitter somewhere local when the gym near work was no longer an option due to the pandemic. I know feel really confident handling weights and my diet. I recently saw myself in a film from before I started at Nxtep and other people couldn’t recognise me from me who didn’t know me well so, it definitely works! Highly recommended.

Training at Nxtep during Covid was tricky but Chris and Luca made it work! Started with training outdoors in the carpark before we were allowed to move indoors, it was always fun and I feel I made real progress.It never felt just like a business and always felt more caring, I was also doing it as part of my DofE to which Luca/Chris were very helpful with.I've had to stop due to other focuses in life but I've got some real fond memories of the time and am hoping to go back later if I can!

How Our Corporate Packages Work

We are hugely flexible – we understand that every business is different, with differing locations, budgets and numbers of employees, and therefore we offer corporate personal training in a variety of ways to meet the needs of businesses and their employees – see below for how we can run these sessions:

In your workplace

Firstly, we can offer corporate personal training in your business’s workplace. This allows employees to easily incorporate fitness into their daily routine, as they can participate in training sessions during work hours, at lunchtime, or after work. We work closely with businesses to design personalised training programs that meet the unique needs and goals of their employees. This can be on any basis – from three times a week, right down to once every quarter – it’s up to you.

In a nearby location

Secondly, we offer corporate personal fitness training in a nearby location such as a park. This can be a great option for businesses that want to provide employees with a more diverse range of training options, and it’s a particularly popular option in the summer. By training in a park, employees can enjoy the benefits of exercising outdoors, while still receiving the support and guidance of a professional trainer.

In our gym

Finally, we offer corporate personal training at our gym itself in small groups of up to 6 people. This can be a great option for businesses that want to provide employees with access to a wide range of equipment and training options, as well as the support of a professional trainer. We work closely with businesses to design training programs that are tailored to the needs and goals of their employees, and that can be completed in a small group setting.

By offering corporate personal training in these flexible ways, we are able to provide businesses and their employees with personalized and effective fitness training that can help improve overall health and well-being. Give us a call today to discuss how we can help your business and your employees.


Benefits of Corporate Personal Fitness Programs

A corporate personal training program can provide a range of benefits for a company’s employees, helping them to improve their health and fitness and ultimately leading to increased productivity and a positive work environment. As a personal trainer, I have seen firsthand the positive impact that corporate fitness programs can have on employees, and I believe that every company should consider implementing one.

Below are some of the key benefits of a corporate personal training programme:

Improved Physical Health

One of the most obvious benefits of a corporate personal training programme is that it can help employees to improve their physical health. Regular exercise has been shown to have a range of health benefits, including reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes, as well as improving mental health and reducing stress. By providing employees with the opportunity to engage in regular physical activity, a corporate personal training programme can help them to improve their overall health and well-being.

Improved Mental Health

In addition to improving physical health, a corporate personal training programme can also help employees to improve their mental health. Exercise has been shown to have a range of mental health benefits, including reducing anxiety and depression and improving mood. By providing employees with the opportunity to engage in regular physical activity, a corporate personal training programme can help them to cope with stress and maintain good mental health, leading to a more positive work environment.

Increased Productivity

Another major benefit of a corporate personal training programme is that it can lead to increased productivity among employees. Exercise has been shown to improve cognitive function and brain health, which can help employees to think more clearly and make better decisions. In addition, regular physical activity can improve energy levels and reduce fatigue, helping employees to stay focused and productive throughout the day. By investing in a corporate personal training programme, companies can help their employees to perform at their best, leading to improved productivity and better business results.

Reduces Absenteeism

Corporate personal training can help reduce absenteeism in a business’s workforce by promoting healthy habits and lifestyles among employees. Regular exercise has been shown to improve overall health and well-being, which can help prevent illnesses and injuries that can lead to absenteeism. Additionally, by providing employees with access to personal trainers, businesses can help ensure that employees are participating in safe and effective exercise programs that can help prevent injuries and other health issues.

Enhanced Stress Management

Exercise has been shown to have a positive effect on stress management. By providing employees with the opportunity to engage in regular physical activity, companies can help their workers reduce stress, improve mood, and boost overall mental health. This can lead to increased focus and productivity, as well as improved morale and job satisfaction.

Enhanced Cognitive Function

Exercise has been shown to improve cognitive function, including memory, attention, and decision-making. So therefore, a corporate personal training programme can help employees improve their mental sharpness and focus, leading to improved job performance and overall productivity.

Improved Team Building and Camaraderie

Corporate personal training programs can provide employees with the opportunity to engage in fun, team-building activities that promote collaboration and cooperation. This can help foster a sense of community and camaraderie among workers, leading to improved communication and collaboration within the company.

Improved Workplace Culture

A corporate personal training programme can help create a positive and supportive workplace culture. By providing employees with the resources and support they need to improve their health and fitness, companies can foster a sense of community and camaraderie among employees. This can lead to increased morale, reduced turnover, and improved overall job satisfaction.

Enhanced Employee Retention

Companies that prioritize the health and wellness of their employees tend to have a more positive company culture. This can lead to increased job satisfaction and employee retention, as workers feel valued and supported by their employer. In addition, a corporate personal training program can be a valuable recruiting tool, as it can help attract top talent to the company.

Reduced Healthcare Costs

Implementing a corporate personal training programme can help reduce healthcare costs for both employees and the company. Regular exercise can help prevent the development of chronic diseases, leading to fewer sick days and lower healthcare costs.



What Will Corporate Personal Training Sessions Involve?

Our corporate training programmes usually involve a mixture of the three core components, but we can tailor it – for example, perhaps your employees would collectively prefer a program geared more towards weight loss, or perhaps weight training – it’s up to you. The three core components we usually build sessions from are:

  1. Weight training: We generally always like to include weights and resistance training, as even light resistance training is hugely beneficial to overall health and fitness. Increased muscle strength makes daily tasks easier, and muscle mass will help you increase your metabolic rate and so burn more calories.
  1. Cardio training: Walking, running, cycling, and high-intensity interval training are all examples of cardio exercises we employ. Additionally, we always warm up with some light cardio (e.g., 5 to 10 minutes) before each workout session.
  1. Flexibility training: Many workouts will require you to be flexible. Additionally, stretching after exercise promotes flexibility and reduces recovery time, so this is incorporated into every session.

Our customised corporate personal training programmes will include various quantities of the three forms of training mentioned above, but as mentioned, we can tailor the program towards particular goals your employees may have.
