Frequently Asked Questions
1Should I check with my physician before starting personal training?
Yes, it's good practice to meet with your healthcare professional before starting any type of fitness program.
2What are the benefits of having a fitness trainer?
A fitness trainer will design specific programs to meet your individual goals. A fitness trainer teaches you proper exercise techniques and help motivate you.
3Why is proper form and structure so important?
Some reasons why proper form and structure is so important, is to prevent aches, pains and strains, and to make workouts more effective by targeting precise muscle groups you wish to work out.
4How often should I work out?
As often as possible! If you are trying to lose weight, I recommend working out at-least 3x per week for 45 minutes or more.
5What if I'm in poor shape, can I start a fitness program?
Absolutely, a fitness evaluation is required to first determine where to start you, no matter what your fitness level is, I can construct an effective and results oriented workout for you.
6On days when I'm not personal training, should I still exercise?
Yes, these re called homework days. You should at-least do cardio and abs to maintain the physique you are building, it also prepares you for your next session.
7Are there any long term contracts or commitments I must make?
No! Personal Training, Kids Fitness and Fierce Fitness Camps are month to month sessions.
8Will I end up looking like a man if I lift weights?
NO! Absolutely not! Much of the difference in muscle mass between males and females has to do with hormones, specifically, testosterone. On average, men produce ten times more testosterone than women. Unless you're a female who is taking anabolic steroids or other male hormones, lifting weights will not make you look like a man.
9Can I just lose my stomach?
No, because the diet and exercise regimen that you must undergo will also trim down other areas of the body, not just your abdominals specifically.
10How long is it going to take to lose the weight?
Results are different for everyone. It's a equation of existing muscles, your natural metabolism, fat distribution, caloric restrictions, exercise approaches and many other factors. The goal is to lose 1 to 2 pounds per week. That means that to reach your weight loss goals it will take about one week for every pound you want to lose. If you're willing to make more disciplined changes than it may take less time.
11What do I need to bring with me in order to train or participate in the women's fitness camps?
DETERMINATION, DEDICATION, COMMITMENT, towel, workout gloves, comfortable shoes and water.
