How often should I meet with a trainer?

A new client will benefit from more frequent sessions (2-3x/wk) to help you form the habit and understand the principles. Too much time between sessions allows time to forget information. For seasoned clients or regular exercisers, frequency often depends on goals and time available to invest in training. [Back to Top]

How do I get started?

First, contact me (Becca) for a free consultation – either in person or over the phone. Once we get to know each other, we can find a way to meet your goals in a way that fits your personality. The first actual training session consists of a fitness assessment. This aids in a designing your program and provides a benchmark for measuring your progress. [Back to Top]

How soon will I see results?

It depends on your goals and the amount of time you are willing to invest outside of scheduled training sessions. This will be discussed during your initial consultation and you will receive weekly direction and guidance for what to do on your own. In general, drastically quick changes are drastically short-lived. A steady commitment over time will help ensure that your goals can be achieved long-term. [Back to Top]

Will all the workouts be the same?

No. While all workouts will be geared towards your goals and built upon the same training principles, each session will be prepared ahead of time to ensure variety and creativity. As you progress, your workouts will progress to reflect your increased strength and endurance. [Back to Top]

What if I have a medical condition that may get in the way of exercise?

Your medical history is definitely taken into account. Before starting you will need to complete a health history. If necessary, a medical release might be required from your doctor. I am happy to consult with your doctor or physical therapist if needed, and I am certified to make those adjustments to your program. [Back to Top]

What type of equipment will I need?

No fancy equipment is needed. If you choose to train in my studio all equipment is provided, it is just up to you to have some free weights and an exercise ball at home or access to a fitness center. If you choose to train elsewhere, I may also bring some of my own equipment. [Back to Top]

Do you offer nutrition services, too?

Yes and no. Nutrition and exercise go hand-in-hand. This is often simply a matter of general guidance and education on proper nutrition and portion control. If you wish, we can help you keep a food log to evaluate your current food choices and find avenues for improvement. However, only a registered dietician can safely prescribe meal plans or supplements. [Back to Top]
