Frequently Asked Questions
Regular exercise improves your health in a number of ways. When performed on a regular basis, physical activity reduces the risk of developing such diseases as high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis and reduces your risk of heart disease. Not only does regular exercise help control weight, it also helps build and maintain healthy bones, joints muscles as well as promote psychological well- being. The concept of being “in shape” is quickly becoming synonymous with being “in good health”.
Why hire a personal trainer?
How well do you think a sports team would perform without a coach? A trainer serves as your coach to motivate you to develop good habits around fitness and nutrition. Most people need guidance and clear direction when developing these habits that will become a regular part of your life. If you are like most people, you have a life team comprised of doctors, financial advisors, clergy, home assistants and more. A trainer will be a valued member of that life team as well, insuring you keep your physical health and well being in tune as well.
Why is training so expensive?
When you compare the cost to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, it really is not that expensive. When you are fit and healthy, medical bills drop, sick days are reduced and you are more energetic and productive. Those things translate directly to positively impact your bottom line. A good trainer should want you to “graduate” from personal training and transition into working out on your own. That means they have been successful in instilling healthy lifestyle habits that you can now practice for the rest of you life.
How many sessions per week are necessary?
Three is generally a good number. I also advocate cardio training on the days in between. The body is at its best when moving. If you do some sort of exercise 3-5 days per week, you will see results.
