Who is EvolveYou’s latest trainer Charlotte?  

Charlotte is a Level 3 Personal Trainer who defines her training as Hybrid. Her training style fuses together functional fitness with core strength training.

What can I expect from PERFORM?

Charlotte’s program is all about performance with strength training and endurance focusses.  You will see MetCon workouts (Metabolic Conditioning) which is a style of training that blends strength training and cardio with the aim of improving the efficiency of your body's energy systems - helping to increase your overall level of fitness.

You’ll also work on your strength with upper or lower body exercises, designed to help you improve your lifts and ensure you’re still building muscle.

What is Hybrid training?

Hybrid training is where you shift away from one single focus such as strength training and you blend various types of training together.

For our new trainer Charlotte, her hybrid focus is a blended approach of strength/ endurance and cardio. The cardio will come in the forms of running, cycling, rowing as well as being introduced to the SkiErg. Although each week will have a similar format to the way it is structured, no workout will be the same, ensuring things are kept varied and you’re always challenged.
