Solstice Fitness, based in Amesbury in Wiltshire, was started by Michael Fernie in 2016, . Michael has been training people from a range of backgrounds for nearly 25 years. During a long career in the Army, Michael coached many people, both male and female, young and old. With his in depth knowledge, Michael has been able to train both individuals and groups from various starting points through to their individual goals.
Michael has undertaken many different types of training over the years and has gained a firm belief that exercise should be part of everybody’s daily routine. Life can be complicated and something will always get in the way if you let it. If exercise is not part of a person's daily routine, it becomes a chore and will quickly move down a list of priorities.
To combat this loss of interest, Michael is a proponent of finding a fun activity that you enjoy doing and that you do frequently, if possible with other like minded people!
Michael firmly believes that the exercises we do should be functional and fun, and provide a benefit to our everyday life. As such, Michael's sessions are focused around circuit based interval training employing a variety of functional exercises. The exercises and training are targeted and designed to allow each client to reach their individual goals. Time is a commodity that we are all short of and as such, sessions are tailored to maximise the impact of each exercise.
When training a client, Michael has two main aims. Firstly, they feel confident that at every stage of their journey he will be right there with them. Secondly, at some point in the future they will no longer need him and be able to move forward with a healthier lifestyle that they both embrace and enjoy.
