FAQ

General Questions

  1. How do I get started?

    Once you have supplied us with the necessary information about yourself by email or phone, we will call you to set up an initial Fitness Evaluation and Consultation.

  2. How do I cancel a session?

    Once you have scheduled a session, you must cancel the session more than 24 hours in advance, or you are responsible to pay fully for that session.

  3. Do I have to pay a gym fee in addition to the trainers fee?

    No. All equipment and gym fees are included in the hourly fee.

  4. When must I make a payment?

    Payment is expected before a session can be scheduled. Payment options vary from paying one session at a time to purchasing session packages.

  5. Do you accept credit cards?

    We accept all major credit cards, cash, checks or money orders are the accepted methods of payment.

  6. What happens if I am late for a session

    The trainer is not obligated to make up time due to a client's lateness. More than 1/2 hour lateness constitutes a late cancellation and the trainer is not obligated to conduct the session. In some cases I will wait and work with you for the remaining time. But this is solely up to trainers discretion. In either case you will be charged fully for the session.

  7. How many days a week do I need to workout?

    This question can only be answered effectively after you have had your initial Consultation and Evaluation. It depends upon your current conditions, goals, schedule, budget and availability.

  8. I can workout on my own, but I need to learn what to do and how to exercise correctly. Will you work with me on this basis?

    Yes, I will evaluate you, assess your needs, develop a diet plan if needed, and work with you over a number of sessions to teach you fat loss and toning/building exercises necessary for you to achieve your goals. You will come away with a program tailored to your needs and can workout on your own. The number of sessions needed for this depends upon your fitness needs, how quickly you master the movements, and your budget. You can always schedule an additional session or sessions later for a refresher or to upgrade your program. I am very responsive to occasional follow-up phone or email questions for no additional charge.

     

  9. I have done everything, but I still can't lose weight. Is there anything you can do for me?

    Losing bodyfat effectively is the result of a combination of a specific diet and calorie burning aerobic exercise carried out consistently for a particular duration of time. We usually find that, when you think you are doing "everything," one or more elements specified above is either not being carried out correctly, or is not being carried out at all. Sometimes folks will try a variety of fad diets, one after the other, for short periods of time and then give up. Or they may get on the treadmill at the gym for 15 minutes, two times a week, and wonder why they can't lose fat. Bodyfat reduction, or "getting lean", is the single most requested goal of clients who come to us. I will work with you on an effective diet and fat-burning exercise program, and will discuss how long you need to sustain this program to achieve results. I will then help you to attain the discipline and motivation to carry it out.

  10. I have been working out on my own for a long time, but have stopped making any progress in muscle gain. Can you help me?

    Yes, most people who have been working out on their own for a long period of time eventually hit a plateau and stop making gains in muscle mass. Often, genetics play a role in this. Essentially, when someone comes close to, or reaches their "genetic potential," muscle gain slows down and sometimes stops altogether. However, even taking genetic factors into account, we find that in most cases plateauing is due an inability by someone to push themselves to greater heights in their workouts, and/or to find new types of routines. Without steady increases in muscle "overload" and varying of types of routines, gains will not be made.

     

  11. I do hundreds of sit-ups but still have no definition in my abs. How do I get a six-pack?

    Getting abdominal definition is only partially accomplished through specific ab workouts involving crunches or flexion of the abdominal muscles. For the most part "definition" of abs is accomplished the same way that "definition" of any other body part is accomplished: by losing the fat that obscures the muscle and building the muscle. Losing the fat is done through diet and aerobic exercise, not abdominal crunches (or sit ups). But even if you lose the fat, to see a nicely developed six-pack, the ab muscles need to be developed. This is accomplished by intense ab crunches with or without added resistance for about eight to fifteen repetitions, four to eight sets, about three times a week.

  12. After I start working with a trainer, when will I begin to see results?

    This is an impossible question to answer without knowing your present condition and training history. There are many variables including your specific starting point, genetics, and metabolism as well as your consistency, commitment and time you are willing to put into training. You will get results commensurately with what you put into your training and diet. Also, we can set up programs that are aimed to work very quickly, but involve exceedingly stringent dieting and training. Generally we like to suggest that, if you are starting from a very low level of fitness, you take it slower at the beginning so you can accustom your body gradually to a training program. We want you to be fit and fabulous for your lifetime.
