Episode 20: Pete Banbury and Haydn Parry (HPT5)

Making Exercise Irresistible, with Pete Banbury and Haydn Parry

People see a hairdresser to style their hair; a dentist to inspect their teeth; a chiropractor to help with their back. So when it comes to physical fitness, why do people think they can do it on their own? Even when it comes to people who are serious about getting in shape, they are often reluctant to sign on with a personal trainer. Is that a problem with the public’s attitude, or with personal trainers in general? On a special episode of The Fit Man Collective podcast, two guests share their progressive approach to heal that divide and get everyone–trainers and clients alike–to think differently about personal training.

“It’s all about the experience. If a personal trainer spends an hour with a client, the client will probably not remember every exercise that they’ve been through; but they will definitely remember how they felt at the end of that session…It’s not what people think, it’s how you make people feel.” – Hadyn Parry

This is a health brief; it’s not a fitness, big biceps, big abs kind of message. I feel that at the moment, the fitness industry is missing the mark and it needs to get it’s act together…We need to stop thinking about ourselves and start thinking about the millions of people out there who can do with our help. So, that’s why I set up HPT5, to reach those people.”
