WHY SHOULD I WORK WITH A PERSONAL TRAINER?

A personal trainer can help you get the results that you want that you haven’t been able to achieve on your own.

Personal trainers also help with:

– Maximizing your caloric burn.
– Strengthening and toning your entire body.
– Diversifying your workouts.
– Building cardiovascular endurance.
– Improving flexibility.

A personal trainer can also provide you with new exercise knowledge, creativity, and most importantly, the motivation to help you achieve your goals.

HOW WOULD YOU BEST DESCRIBE YOUR TRAINING STYLE?

I’m a big proponent of functional exercise.

At its core “functional training attempts to adapt or develop exercises which allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries.”

Whether your goal is weight loss, toning, or gaining lean muscle, there are functional exercises that will help achieve these goals.

Functional exercise also helps with posture, balance, and flexibility. Many functional strength exercises can also be considered “cardio exercises,” which means you can get more done in a shorter amount of time.

HOW SOON SHOULD I SEE RESULTS?

The majority of clients tell me that they feel a change before they see one. This can happen within the first few weeks of beginning a training program. Often they will describe having more energy, and feeling stronger doing tasks that were once considered difficult.

Of course diet, and the frequency and intensity of the training plays a big part of how fast you see results.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TRAIN?

The majority of clients train between one and three times a week, depending on their specific goals and desired timeline for results.

HOW FAST CAN I EXPECT TO LOSE WEIGHT?

A safe, reasonable expectation for weight loss is one to two pounds a week. It’s important to note, again, that nutrition plays an essential part of the puzzle when it comes to losing weight. Even a vigorous exercise program may not be enough to drop those extra pounds if you maintain bad eating habits.

HOW LONG ARE TRAINING SESSIONS?

Private and semi-private (two people) sessions are 1 hour including 5 minutes of warmup and 5 minutes of cool down. The bootcamp is 50 minutes.

WHAT IS THE BOOTCAMP?

The bootcamp is a group class, that includes cardio, strength, and flexibility exercises, generally using timed intervals and circuits. All of the exercises can be easily modified so that everyone, no matter their skill level, can get a good workout.

Some people find that the camaraderie and “team spirit” of exercising in a group are more motivating than solitary workouts.

WHAT IF I HAVE AN INJURY OR MEDICAL CONDITION?

Before getting started, we’ll discuss any current medical issues and design your training program accordingly. Your physician should also be aware that your are starting an exercise regimen.

HOW DO I GET A SIX PACK?

Believe it or not, most people already have them. The problem is they’ve got a layer of fat covering them up.

What most clients don’t understand, is that it’s important to work the larger muscles groups (back and legs) in addition to your stomach. The larger muscles continue to burn calories after you’ve worked them. The more calories burned, the more fat loss you’ll have. Aerobic exercise combined with strength training is the most effective way to get that six pack you’ve been after.

WHAT IS QIGONG, AND HOW IS IT INTEGRATED INTO THE TRAINING?

Chinese in origin, “qigong is a practice of aligning body, breath, and mind for health and meditation through slow movements and deep rhythmic breathing.” I’ve been practicing for 15 years and have found it indispensable for the prevention of injury and maintaining flexibility and balance.

I generally like to incorporate a little qigong into the warm-up and/or cool down portion of a training session, but if a client wants to spend more time on it, I work it into the training.

WHAT DO YOU DO TO STAY IN SHAPE?

For as long as I can remember, exercise has been an important part of my life. There are so many different activities that I enjoy, I couldn’t possibly list them here. A few include surfing, cycling, hiking, tennis, swimming, strength training, and any activity involving my dog.

ARE THERE ANY SPECIFIC FOODS OR SUPPLEMENTS YOU RECOMMEND?

Not being a registered dietitian or nutritionist, it is beyond my scope of expertise to specifically recommended foods, meal plans, or supplements.

That said, I’m a huge proponent of clean eating, and personally try to eat as much fresh produce as possible. The simplest, safest way to improve your health through your diet is to eliminate processed foods and added sugars.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Just email or call to book a session.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Bring some water and a small towel. If there’s music that pumps you up for working out, bring it and we’ll plug it into our system.
