Define your Fitness Goals
What do you hope to accomplish with your trainer? Strength? Fitness? Better Nutrition? Injury Rehabilitation? Weight Loss? It’s best to have specific goals in mind when you come in for your initial consult. We will tailor your exercise regimen to help you accomplish those goals quickly and efficiently.
What days and times are convenient for you?
Does your schedule permit you to workout multiple times a week? Are morning or lunchtime hours more convenient for you? We suggest having an idea of your realistic availability and we will help you construct a fitness routine to help you accomplish your goals.
Dress intelligently – work out comfortably.
Lightweight, breathable clothing is best for exercising. Anything from shorts and your favorite cotton t-shirt to tank tops and cotton lycra exercise-gear will do. Comfort is the name of the game. The more comfortable you feel exercising – the more likely you will continue with your workout program. Quality supportive sneakers are highly recommended.
Consult Your Physician
Before starting a fitness program, it is strongly recommended that you consult your physician. During your initial consultation, please be sure to inform your trainer about any medical conditions.
