EMEA’s Personal Trainer at the Commonwealth Games 2018

We would like to wish the very best of luck to our personal trainer, Laura Hewitt, who is representing England in her Commonwealth Games debut on the Gold Coast this week! Her previous achievements include being twice awarded British Champion 2017 and 2016. We took the opportunity to speak to Laura about how she got to this point and also how she sees weightlifting as one of the most beneficial ways to train for everyone; to fit into any work/life balance. Read her interview below:- How did you start to get involved with weight-lifting? I got talent spotted through the National Governing Body British Weightlifting. They were spotting athletes from other sports that potentially had a natural talent for weightlifting. I applied for the programme which was called the “Golden Chance Programme”; about 200 girls were looked at through a variety of tests and the top 8 with the most potential were selected - I was one of them. What other sports have you been involved in and what made you choose weight-lifting as a specialism? I was a gymnast from the age of 4-18 and then did CrossFit for a short while which introduced weightlifting into my life. I enjoyed and it and was in the transition of making more of a commitment to the weightlifting before the talent programme. How often do you train? I train 5 times a week. Sessions vary from an hour and a half to two and half hours. You’re heading to the Gold Coast to represent England soon at The Commonwealth Games in April! What extra preparation/training have you been involved in for the event? So, up until October last year, I had only taken part in national championships but never an international championship. In October I got selected for my debut for Team Great Britain at the European under 23’s in Albania.  I came 4th overall and had a 6/6 competition, personal bests on everything. In November I got selected again to get more international experience and went to the World Championships in California Anaheim. It was amazing to see such big names. How does it feel to have been selected to represent your country? It sounds really corny, but it really is an honour. I love my country and I am massively patriotic so to be able to wear my country’s jersey is just a dream come true. What do you think are the benefits of exercise to work/life balance? As well as being an elite athlete, I work as a personal trainer. So, I promote an active lifestyle through that. Weight training is one of the most beneficial ways to train for everyone. Some people don’t realise that elite athletes who take part in endurance events still have to do weightlifting alongside their discipline, because of the crossover benefits. I work with not just athletes but really normal people, GPs, doctors, managers, business owners, mums; people who just really want to improve their lifestyles and fitness. At RWF (Real World Fitness) it’s not just me, but all of us, who teach all of these people to weight train. Do you have any stories to share regarding the positive impact training has made on the lives of any of your clients? I have had people start with me that struggled to sit down on the floor and play with their children comfortably who couldn’t squat a bar. Now they’re squatting over 70 kilos, are 5 kilos lighter and go to the gym 3 times a week. And most importantly they’re healthier and happier. How would you recommend people schedule training around work hours? Everyone is different. What I do say is that lots of people say they “don’t have time” when in reality they just don’t want to make time. As humans, we all make time for things we see as a priority or want, you just have to be disciplined and want something enough. Do you think “I want to train everyday”? I can tell you - no. Some days I wake up, I’m sore, I’m tired, I don’t want to.  But it is my discipline that carries me through. If someone hasn’t trained in a gym before, how would you advise they get involved? Everyone has to start somewhere. Even if you start with body weight exercises because you’re not strong enough to do any more, that is absolutely fine. Don’t be embarrassed about it. Start with basics. Weight train 100%, but check you have the correct technique. Lots of people don’t think to work on their flexibility to help form. It’s all about developing the basics for the long-term benefits. What do you enjoy most about training others? I love people. I love my job. I love watching people grow and get stronger and see results. I love weight training. I love what it can do to the body. And I enjoy seeing others work hard and see the benefits. Gold, Silver or Bronze? What colour medal are you bringing back from the Commonwealth Games? Ultimately, I’m always a Gold girl, any athletes will probably say the same, but this is my first Commonwealth Games so I’m not going to lie - a medal of any colour would be an absolutely amazing achievement. I will have been doing weightlifting 3 years this April. ...
