Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I schedule personal training sessions?
It is most common for clients to schedule weekly training sessions. However, I also have clients who see me multiple times per week as well as clients who schedule sessions with me every other week. Although I also have clients who schedule sessions once per month, I do not recommend this. Clients with personal training sessions that are less frequent and less consistent have slower and less than optimal results compared to those who meet with me on a weekly basis.
How long should I see a personal trainer?
Of course, this is entirely up to each client and it largely depends on what goals the client wants to achieve. If you are someone who needs to refresh an already existing fitness plan, you may need only an assessment plus a few sessions. If, however, you are brand new to working out (or it’s been a long time), and you have some big goals you’d like to achieve, we may establish a plan that extends from 6 – 12 months. Ultimately, the goal is for you to establish your own fitness habits that you can maintain for the rest of your life. I recommend an occasional refresher session to update your workout plan or help you overcome any nagging issues that get in the way of your established fitness plan when needed.
What types of payment do you accept?
Total Strength Fitness accepts cash, checks, credit/debit cards through Pay Pal and Pay Pal payments. Credit/debit card payments can be made in person as well as on-line through Pay Pal. Payments are expected at time of session.
Will you work with me when I am injured? I will work with a client who is experiencing an injury. However, I am not a physical therapist or a doctor, so I will rely upon the client’s doctor, chiropractor, or physical therapist to recommend the appropriate exercises to help the client repair and recover from the injury.
Will you prepare a meal plan for me?
Because I am not a nutritionist or a dietician, I cannot prepare meal plans for my clients. However, I help clients determine the best way to use nutrition for their fitness goals. Some ways I do this are by helping my client determine an appropriate amount of calories to consume, the amount of protein, carbohydrates, and fats to include in one’s diet based on the client’s fitness goals, and determine ways to include healthy, nutrient-rich foods in the diet. We also discuss the most difficult food struggles for my client and how they can be overcome.
