YOUR QUESTIONS, MY ANSWERS

I have answered some of the most commonly asked questions regarding classes, personal training and massage services here. If the question you want to ask is not answered, then please feel free to get in touch.

Where does the training take place?

Most of my clients opt to train at their own home, they all have their own individual reasons for this. Many do not feel confident/comfortable in a Gym Environment, or maybe live to far away from a convenient health club.

Others have young children and find it easier not having to plan their training around childcare or their partners work schedule.

Similarly, many recognise that if they have to travel to a location to workout, then they are less likely to remain consistent with their plans, however, with a trainer coming to them at home, training programmes will remain regular and progressive. 

Are you a professional/qualified trainer?

Yes. I studied with the UK's leading Fitness Education company, Future Fit Training. I originally studied the Total Immersion Diploma, which covered REPs Level 2 Gym Instructor and REPs Level 3 Personal Training and Pilates. I also studied REPs Level 3 GP Referral and Exercise, REPs Level 4 Exercise for Lower Back Pain Management, REPs Nutrition for Weight Management, Sports Nutrition and Pre & Post Natal Nutrition, and Reps Level 3 Pre & Post Natal Exercise. 

In addition, I have studied numerous CPD (Continuining Professional Development) courses over the years to update and refresh my Health and Fitness Knowledge. 

In 2016, I joined the Precision Nutrition Education Programme, which offers a University Degree level Nutrition Science Course. This has further increased and developed my understanding of Nutrition and the Sciences that surround it and this will be completed in 2018.

How much will training cost?

I cannot answer this question without knowing all of the information and details about you and your specific goals and requirements. Every client is different, and needs a different package.

Some clients need to focus more on nutrition and lifestyle, and less on exercise. Whilst others need more help with activity and staying motivated & focussed. 

None of my clients has ever been the same as another, and no one client needs the same level of training. 

I have various packages available that offer varying lengths of training, or number of sessions per week. 

This is why I offer the free consultation, so I can advise you on what is going to give you the best chance of achieving your goals. 

How often do I have to, or can I train with you?

That is entirely up to you and depends on the amount of time you have and how committed you are. Usually, I train with my clients once or twice a week.

In order to achieve your goals, you need to aim to workout, or at least be "active" three times per week. These do not all have to be as personal training sessions. As part of my packages, I offer a "home workout" plan, which will give you video instructiosn on how to do each of the exercises. Plus the plan will details how many repetitions and sets you need to complete. 

Is there any Support away from my Training Sessions?

Yes! I am on hand to guide, advise and help you throughout your programme. Many clients contact me on WhatsApp or via Text or Email to ask questions when they arise, or ask for support. 

I also have a "private" Facebook Group for all of my clients, where I am consistently asking if people need help, or encouraging clients. The group runs monthly challenges, offers healthy recipes, video Q&A's, and of course all of my clients offer motivation, support and guidance to each other. 

It's a community for all! 

Can you help me with my diet as well as Exercise? 

Absolutely! Most results are strongly affected by your nutritional choices, so I have invested in my own education and knowledge in this area to help you. 

Clients are able to submit food diaries online to me on a daily or weekly basis, which allows me to assess what you are eating and any alterations that may help you in achieving better results. The more you do this, the greater the healp can be.

I also have hundreds of recipes available for you and pre-designed meal plans. 

In some cases, I am able to create a meal plan for you, however, I prefer to adapt your current lifestyle in small steps rather than overhaul. this is because too many changes at once can lead to more problems in consistency and binge eating at some point. 

The key is to moderate rather than restrict. 

My house is not very big, do I need lots of space?

No. I can adapt your workout to fit with your space. Many of my clients train in smaller areas, and find that the workout is just as challenging as when they train in a gym or outdoor space. 

As long as you have a small area that you can move in, that will be sufficient. 

I do not have any fitness "equipment", do I need to buy anything? 

You are welcome to purchase any fitness equipment that you want. However, this is not necessary! 

I have a plethora of equipment that I can bring to you for your sessions, this includes, kettlebells, dumbbells, barbells, powerbags, resistance bands, ViPRs, Bosu's, Stability Balls and much more. 

Some clients decide to purchase a kettlebell after a few sessions, so that they can do additional workouts, but this is entirely their own choice. I provide everything. 

In addition, if there is a piece of equipment that I feel will be beneifical to your training, then I will source this for the sessions. 

If you do have any equipment at home, then we are able to incorporate this into your training sessions as well. 

How long will it take to achieve my goals? 

How long is a piece of string?

This question is virtually impossible to answer without knowing you, your lifestyle and your goals.

Some people are able to stick to their transformation plans incredibly well, and achieve their goals in 8, 10 or 12 weeks.

However, in reality, everybody has "off days" and it is only natural to make mistakes. That's life!

If you are able to workout regualrly and be consistent with your nutrition 90% of the time, it is possible to see results of 1-2lbs lost per week. 

BUT... everyone is different, and there are varying factors to take into consideration, i.e. your hormone balance, hydration, sleep patterns and stress levels, portion sizes and how long you have been trying to "diet" or "lose weight" for. Your body may need an adjustment period in order to regain a healthy balance and metabolism.

So, unfortunately, there is no honest answer to this question.
