As a Personal trainer, there are common questions that we are asked, especially by those who are just beginning their fitness journeys with us. Here are some answers to your most common questions …
How often do I need to work out?
Depending on your fitness goals, we usually recommend four days of exercise each week. Resistance training should be involved in at least three of these days. You should be getting around 150 minutes of moderately intense activity ever week.
How often do I need to work with you?
Everyone is different, and it will take a few sessions to evaluate what kind of program will work for you and how often in-person guidance will be needed. Typically, at least three a week until you consistently get to the gym and perform the workouts that keep you on track to meet your goals.
What should my diet look like?
Depending on what you hope to achieve with your fitness plan, this will vary and nutrition will play a key role in the success of your health and fitness goals. Proper nutrition is commonly composed of lean proteins, plenty of vegetables and fruits and whole grains.
What should I eat before and after a workout?
You will need energy before you work out and time before your session for your meal to digest. If you have ample time, a balanced meal is best, while if you are pressed for time, something as simple as a banana with some peanut butter will serve you well.
