What can I expect from a personal trainer?

A personal trainer is your partner on the path to health and fitness.  Here is what you can expect from our trainers:

  1. Approachability – We are friendly and non-intimidating!
  2. Expertise – You know your goals and we know what to do to get you there.
  3. Experience – We’ve helped a lot of people.  And the one thing that has taught us the most is that no two people need exactly the same thing.  We use our experience to guide your success but never with a “one size fits all” mentality.
  4. Accountability – Once you commit to showing up for training sessions, we are here expecting to see you at your scheduled time, and help you do the work.  Even on off days, we check in to help you stay on track during the times we are not there.
  5. Motivation – We help you get past excuses and barriers that may have stopped you in the past, and to keep going toward any goal you set.
  6. Maximization – We can help you get the most accomplished efficiently in the least amount of time each day.  No more trying to figure out how to get everything done in an hour or less; we know exactly how!
  7. Partnership – We care about you and we’ve got your back.  Period.
How long should my personal training sessions be?

We offer 30, 45, and 60 minute sessions.  Your session length can depend on your fitness level, your schedule, how many times you work out each week, and your budget.  Use our price calculator on the Personal Training page to see how much different sessions would cost you per week and per month.  Ultimately, you and your trainer decide on session length together based on the factors above as well as the results of your initial fitness assessment.

What is the difference between individual and group personal training?

Individual personal training offers complete privacy and a workout that is tailored completely to your goals, schedule, fitness level, and built around any injuries, medical issues or conditions you are dealing with.  Partner or group personal training teams up people of the same fitness level and goals with similar schedules and offers a more social aspect with a supportive team behind you at all times.  Group training also allows you to split the cost of the training time between more people if you are on a budget.  Both styles of training are highly effective, safe, and fun.  If you are new to personal training or working out, we often recommend starting with a month or two of individual training, and transitioning to a buddy or group as you feel more comfortable with working out.

How many days a week should I train?

This varies greatly from person to person depending on the following:

  • Weight loss and/or performance goals
  • Activity level of your job
  • Activity level of your life outside of job and personal training
  • Schedules and personal preference

It can also vary from week to week as your life events and schedule vary.  We always give an informed recommendation and discussion on frequency of training once we see you in the studio, discuss all of these factors, and perform your initial fitness assessment.

Do I still have to work out on my own if I’m doing personal training sessions?

This really depends on what your goals and lifestyle are.  If you have aggressive weight loss or sports performance/fitness goals, we normally advise getting some type of activity around 6 days per week.  If you are maintaining weight loss or fitness level, that recommendation can decrease.  When we meet you for the initial consultation and assessment, we use your fitness assessment results, goals, schedule, and lifestyle habits together to make a firm recommendation on how often you need to exercise.  If you do need to exercise on days off from personal training, we offer hundreds of instructor led workouts you can stream from home as part of your personal training package at no additional cost.

Can I do a boot camp class if I am a beginner/new to working out?

Boot camp classes vary greatly from studio to studio.  You can definitely do our boot camp classes as both a beginner or experienced exerciser/athlete.  We keep our boot camp classes at a medium, manageable size, so our trainer is able to give each participant personal instruction, attention, and exercise modifications if needed.  We also are Certified Medical Exercise Specialists, meaning we have the knowledge and experience to work with injuries, medical conditions, or general weaknesses safely and effectively.
