Get an earful


Queenstown personal trainer Sarah Cole (right) is encouraging people to kickstart 2012 with her innovative fitness programme. 

Cole has this week launched PT in Your Ear – a selection of downloadable audio workouts featuring a trainer calling instructions to music to enable training anywhere and anytime. 

The digital files are compatible with MP3 players, smart phones or iPods and can be listened to with earphones at home or in the gym. 

“PT in Your Ear is metabolic programmes designed to elevate your heart rate,” Cole says. 

“It will constantly cue you, count you down and keep you honest, as well as giving you regular recoveries and encouraging words when you start to tire. 

“It’s such a good workout in 30 minutes.” 

Programmes come with a visual cue card to demonstrate how each exercise should look.
