What Is Personal Training?
Who is Personal Training For?
Personal Training Works. Personal training is one-on-one instruction that incorporates exercise screening, goal-setting and health education. Following a fitness consultation, the trainer will design a challenging workout routine specifically designed for each individual’s needs, working with you every step of the way.
That is the Fitness Lab difference, come in and see for yourself.
Do I need to diet as well as exercise, or will exercise alone give me good results?
We try to discourage “diets”, as they are often only a temporary fix for a long-term problem. We do highly encourage healthy eating through permanent behavioral changes that you can live with. A healthy diet, combined with adequate exercise, will help you achieve your desired goals much faster than either diet or exercise alone. Let our Team here at the Fitness Lab find a Nutrition program that works for you.
How long will it take before I see results?
Generally, it takes 8-12 weeks before you begin to “see” results. What type of results you “see” is very individual and depends on your baseline fitness, how hard and how frequently you exercise, and what your goals are. More importantly however, you will “feel” the results of exercise almost immediately. We try to de-emphasize the obsession with the visual results, and pay more attention to all of the other wonderful things exercise can do for you like increase your energy, reduce stress levels and improve your strength.
How often can I speak with the trainers at the Fitness Lab?
You can contact the trainers at the Fitness Lab using our App, and you should expect a reply within 24 hours. If you are a “Long Distance Training” client, you will have a set time for your coaching session. If you enjoy and require maximal motivation and support, it is best to explain this to your Trainer when you begin.
How often should I exercise?
In general, it is recommended that you start with 3 exercise sessions a week. Over time, you can progress to 5-6 days a week. If you progress slowly, and vary your exercise routines, you will avoid any overuse injury or exercise burnout. This is why it is important to seek advice from a Fitness Lab Trainer —to discover how to save yourself from injury and burnout!
I’ve never exercised before, is strength training safe for me?
Strength Training is safe for nearly everyone, but we always recommend that you check with your physician before starting any exercise program. As long as you start slowly, and do not try to progress too quickly, you will find wonderful benefits.
