Personal Training in Madrid and Online

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic Maxifisio will continue offering online consultations and services.

For more information please contact us and visit our online class timetable.

If you need a Personal Training session do not hesitate to book with Maxifisio. All sessions last 55 minutes, working with English speaking physiotherapist and sports therapist Clara Moreno, who will guide you during the session and adapt the workout to your personal needs and goals.

Maxifisio offers private Personal Training sessions (one-to-ones and duets) in the Salamanca area of Madrid, however given the coronavirus pandemic we are currently offering our Personal Training sessions online.

Online personal training can help you if you are currently affected by a lockdown in your area, if you are in quarantine and isolation, or if you simply want to avoid exposing yourself to COVID-19. They can also help you as part of your recovery after suffering a COVID-19 infection. During the initial online consultation we will conduct a personal interview to find out your goals, your habits, time available to train and if you have or have recently suffered an injury to take into account for your training. At the end of the session, we will email you your personal training plan.

For more information on our online sessions or any other questions please contact us.

What is physical exercise?

Physical exercise is any activity or body movement that we perform in order to improve our health, physical performance and quality of life. It is used as a tool in rehabilitation and prevention of injuries, in the recovery of functionality and normal movement, in the optimisation of sports performance, and in the improvement of health and quality of life.

In addition, it has notable effects on weight loss, improvement of function and mobility, development of physical abilities (strength, endurance, flexibility and speed), development of athletic skills (displacements, running, jumping and throwing) and improvement of emotional well-being.

Different types of training:
  • Strength training: based on the use of resistance in pull and push movements that increase muscle size and strength, as well as strengthening bones, tendons and ligaments, stabilising the metabolism and improving anaerobic resistance and the cardiovascular system.
  • Metabolic training: set of exercises that increase caloric intake through the elevation of metabolic rate and muscle activation.
  • HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training): combines high intensity exercise periods with periods of less intensity or active rest.
  • Tabata method: 4 minutes of exercise composed of 8 sets of 20 seconds at maximum intensity and 10 seconds of rest in each set.
  • Mobility CARs (Controlled Articular Rotations): isolated and specific work of the various joints of our body in full range of motion (joint range) performed in a controlled and conscious way.
  • Functional training: compound multi-joint exercises that seek to imitate movements of our daily life in order for the muscles to fulfill their function and be useful in day-to-day activities.
Benefits of Personal Training:
  • Adequate function and biomechanics

  • Treatment of “gluteal amnesia”: adequate activation of the gluteal and hip abductor musculature
  • Healthy shoulder: adequate activation of the serratus anterior, lower trapezius and rhomboid muscles
  • Development of physical abilities: strength, endurance, flexibility and speed
  • Development of athletic skills: displacements, running, jumping and throwing
  • Weight loss and body recomposition
  • Improvement of emotional well-being and quality of life
  • Physical exercise adapted to special population groups: children and adolescents, pregnant women and postnatal women, clients with medical conditions (such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, osteoporosis, cancer, cystic fibrosis…) and elderly clients
