No! Each person in the session has a training program that’s designed to suit their body’s needs. The Personal Trainer will be with you throughout your session to guide you through each exercise, and spot you when doing free weights. Keeping the numbers at 4 means that we can give you all the attention you need, without the intensity of a 1:1 session. Programs will be reviewed once a month to develop your training.
This really doesn’t matter, and is actually a great way to encourage your own training. We are a friendly gym that attracts very honest and genuine clients. There will never be an air of competitiveness, but more of commardier and supportiveness. You should always work within your own parameters and only ever set your goals to become a better you, not someone else.
Simply put, to reach your goals quicker. Some people are happy to follow their own programme in their own time and place; for those who lack the time, or the motivation, or the energy to train effectively on their own, a Personal Trainer can be the answer. The support, advice and encouragement comes with safe exercise technique to help you avoid injuries.
When you are overweight, when you are underweight, when you are unfit, when you want to get fitter, when you have just had a baby, when you are in training, when you are bored with training, when the kids have left home, when the jeans don’t fit, when you are too busy to keep fit, when you are going skiing, when Christmas has happened, when summer is about to happen, when aerobics has got boring, when you can’t avoid the mirror, when you always avoid the scales, when you want to!
There is no ‘should’ – you can achieve results working out in a gym, in the park, or at home. It is more a matter of availability and of convenience for you, particularly if you have special rehabilitative needs, which may require special equipment. The knowledge on how to train is more important here.
Most Personal Trainers are fully aware that in order to change an unhealthy lifestyle you have to work within it. You will find that many Personal Trainers can give you nutritional and lifestyle advice – whether you take it is up to you. We are only with you a few hours a week, but the fitter you become, the better you will treat your body as a natural consequence.
You are the client and so should be able to train when you want. We always try our hardest to get you a time that will work around your life. However, do remember that trainers will have existing clients and so your first choice may not be available so it’s best to be flexible. If you’re changing your training time, always give at least 24 hours notice – otherwise you’ll be charged.
A personal training session will last for one hour. This will follow along the lines of a brief warm-up followed by your main training programme where you will focus on your goals using cardiovascular, strength or flexibility exercises. Finally there will be a cool down or relaxation period. Any programme may vary from one session to the next according to the clients’ needs and progress.
The nature of personal training is such that it incorporates your needs, goals and preferences. The trainer will need to ask some initial questions during the consultation, which probe the demands that are placed on you from your job or lifestyle. Typically the first session will include questions about :
- Basic personal details
- Medical background
- Fitness background
- Lifestyle factors (e.g. smoking or drinking)
- Nutritional habits (you may be asked to keep a diary)
- Personal goals and objectives in relation to fitness
So as you can see a trainer looks at more than just the fitness or exercise component of your life. Any professional trainer should be able to provide information and advice about nutrition, stress management, motivational techniques and then be able to refer you on to others where the need may arise (Chiropractics or Massage say.)
As Personal Trainers we have a degree of knowledge surrounding various medical conditions. We also read widely around disability. As with any body, form and technique is the most important factor to training, so this would be applied to you also. We can adapt exercises to benefit any condition and gain you results. We will also work very closely with existing practitioners within your medical team in order to provide programming that is suitable and safe for you.
