frequently asked questions
A personal trainer is a fitness coach, just like a coach for any other sport. They are there to advise on form, suggest strategy, guide direction and provide motivation. Just like you might hire a tennis coach to improve your strokes, or a swimming coach to learn to swim, a personal trainer can help you perfect the exercise techniques to hit your fitness goals.
As often as possible! We recommend trying to exercise a little every day (OK, 6 days a week!), for 15 minutes. Think of this daily habit like brushing your teeth, but for your body. Then try to have a longer workout of 30-45 minutes 3 times per week. Strength training every 2-3 days works best for boosting metabolism, building muscle, and shedding fat.
How often you work with a trainer depends on time, motivation and budget. Some people are very self-motivated and just need a little guidance now and then; others readily admit they’re lazy, and won’t exercise unless their trainer provides the external push. We recommend training 1-3 times per week with a trainer to keep on track.
We offer 1-on-1 training, sessions for 2 or 3 people, and group classes. You will get more individual attention and personalized instruction the smaller the group. But group classes are fun and cost-effective.
As independent trainers, we work with clients to identify where they would like to train. This may be a private clubhouse, private or public gym, government facility, sports ground, or simply a large room. We have portable equipment if you would like to train at home or outdoors. We can also arrange a gym or venue if desired, normally at an extra cost.
The kind you like. We hear comments like, “I run, but I don’t really like running.” So don’t run! Life is too short to do things you don’t enjoy. We will work together to find the kind of exercise you enjoy most.
By adding healthier, nutritious food choices to your diet, and through exercise. In our experience, the breakdown is around 60/40. You can eat whatever you want as long as you exercise enough. Conversely, you can lose weight if you simply stop eating or drinking. We don’t recommend either extreme. Blending regular activity with wise choices of food is a smart way to go.
Humans are incredibly adaptable in terms of what they eat. We all have genetic differences and personal preferences. That is why doctors can’t recommend the “perfect diet.” Social, cultural and personal choices all guide what we like to eat, how, and when. We will work with you to identify what you like to eat, and how a healthy selection of what you enjoy can get you where you want to go.
