We trained Time Out's News Editor, Rebecca Taylor, for the month of December 2009. Here's what she had to say about training with head trainer, Daigo Smith:
WEEK 1
Where the hell are my trainers? I'm a year post-baby, and motherhood has been the perfect excuse to keep me off the treadmill. It was a situation I was happy to collude with until, one day, my daughter started prodding my tummy as if it was a piece of Play-Doh. Enter Daigo Smith, head trainer at Futureproof Fitness, which promises to tailor regimes to individuals drawing on techniques such as pilates and kung-fu, without setting foot in a gym. Daigo weighs and measures me; to my horror my BMI Index is on the cusp of the 'overweight' category. We head to the park and lunge, squat and push. Daigo lays a speed ladder on the ground and times me, while I bounce between the sections. At the next session, Daigo's got a surprise - a pair of red boxing gloves. I start jigging about, humming 'Eye of the Tiger'.


WEEK 2
I'm laid low with a cold, and by the time I meet Daigo, my exercise quota is precisely zilch. He throws in a new contraption: a TRX suspension trainer, which involves balancing between the straps of an enormous rubber band that's suspended from a tree. At the next session, Daigo introduces me to the ten-cone challenge: ten plastic markers spaced at intervals, for me to run and pick-up, as he times me. 'Easy!' I think. Ten minutes later I'ma grovelling heap on the ground.

WEEKS 3 & 4
The boxing has progressed. But will I have improved my times? And dropped my measurements? Incredibly, my times are down by at least ten seconds for each test! My weight is down by 6lb, placing my BMI Index firmly in the 'ideal' category, and I've dropped over an inch. Best of all, I can now think of the word exercise without feeling physically sick.
