Personal Trainer Regular questions and answers.
1) When will I start seeing a difference?
You should start to see a difference after 8 weeks.
2) Should I eat protein or carbs after my work out?
Both. Your post-workout meal is arguably the most important meal of the day if you train with any kind of intensity. You need to replenish the glycogen stores that have been depleted by consuming carbohydrates, and you need to make sure you have adequate protein so that your body can repair itself after the beating you just put it through
3) Will doing the block booking save me money?
Yes it will save you £50, which is 2 PT sessions.
4) How much should I sleep?
Although eight hours has been a general rule of thumb, new research has emerged that seven hours is the sweet spot for brain function and living longer.
5) Should I train before or after work?
Train when you're least likely to blow it off or be forced to cancel. It will take you 10-21 days to adapt to a new training time, so stick to your plan and power through.
6) Why should I have a PT?
A personal trainer is the fitness professional and the motivation you need. Your personal trainer is extremely important to your fitness success. ... Once the goals are set, a personal trainer will teach proper exercise methods and progressions. Each piece of information taught has one purpose: to reach your fitness goals in a time frame.
7) I don’t know if I have the time?
There is over 10,000 minutes in a week, surely you could train for 3 times a week?
8) I wouldn’t know what to do when I don’t have a PT?
The workouts you do are based on the F.I.T.T. Principle, meaning you choose the frequency, intensity, time and type of workout you're doing and manipulate those elements over time. A trainer can help you navigate all of those things and ensure you have the correct techniques and programme when you’re not with them.
9) Will I get bored?
A trainer is coming at this with an objective eye and may see some things about your program or workouts right away that will definitely make them more interesting and fun.
10) I have injuries?
Our Trainers are trained to manage the injuries and possibly help with recovery, they also have contacts for more specific injuries.
