FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions about personal trainers.

DO YOU MODIFY YOUR WORKOUTS FOR INJURIES?

Absolutely! This is one of the first questions I ask my new personal training clients. I believe in smarter, not harder exercising. If we agree there is room for us to rehabilitate the area, we will incorporate targeted strengthening exercises as well.

CAN A FRIEND JOIN IN ON MY PERSONAL TRAINING SESSION?

Absolutely! If you find that a workout buddy works best for you, then I can also discount the session price for each of you! Please contact me for more details.

HOW MANY SESSIONS PER WEEK DO YOU RECOMMEND?

This depends on the scope of your goals and how quickly you are aiming to achieve them. Most clients train with me 2-4 days per week. 3-4 times per week is optimal to see quicker results. I am also happy to recommend workouts to complete on the days we do not meet.

I AM LOOKING TO BOOK AN AT HOME PERSONAL TRAINING SESSION. WHAT TYPES OF EXERCISE EQUIPMENT DO YOU RECOMMEND I BUY?

A good place to start is:

  • Pair of 5lbs dumbbells

  • Pair of 10lbs dumbbells

  • Pair of 15lbs dumbbells

  • Stability Ball

HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM A PERSONAL TRAINER AT A REGULAR GYM?

Through my 21 years tenure in health and fitness I have found the most common difference between a good and great workout is proper form. By booking a personal training session with me at my home gym in Long Beach, or delivered to a location of your choosing, you guarantee yourself an expertly guided workout.

WHAT IS THE TYPICAL STRUCTURE OF A PERSONAL TRAINING SESSION WITH YOU?

I often structure my workouts as follows, but with some exceptions, depending on the individual's goal:

  • 10 Minute Warm Up - A strategic combination of dynamic movements and static stretches

  • 40-45 Minute Workout - Short one minute (or less) intervals of strength, balance, core, cardio and corrective exercises. 

  • 5-10 Minute Cool Down - This is the best part! Each personal training session concludes with a therapy gun massage and/or cool down stretch. 

WHAT IS YOUR COVID PROTOCOL? CAN I REQUEST YOU WEAR A MASK?

Your comfort is my main concern. I am happy to wear a mask during all of our sessions, or when you deem necessary. All of my equipment is cleaned and sanitized between sessions.

General Personal Trainer FAQs

What is a usual price of a personal trainer?

Personal trainer rates typically range from $50 to $150 per hour, influenced by factors like experience, location, and specialization. My private training sessions, priced between $85 and $120, prioritize quality, comprehensive understanding, and actionable tools for clients, ensuring a valuable investment in their health and fitness journey.

How much should you spend on a personal trainer?

Determining how much to spend on a personal trainer depends on various factors such as your budget, fitness goals, and the level of expertise you seek. Consider these factors to determine a budget that aligns with both your fitness goals and financial considerations.

Is it worth getting a personal trainer?

The decision to hire a personal trainer depends on your individual goals, preferences, and budget. A personal trainer can offer several benefits, including personalized workout plans, expert guidance, and motivation. If you value structured and tailored fitness programs, have specific health or fitness goals, or benefit from external accountability, investing in a personal trainer may be worth it.

How often should you see a personal trainer?

The frequency of personal training sessions depends on various factors, including your fitness goals, schedule, and budget. For beginners or those with specific goals, two to three sessions per week may be beneficial to establish a routine and receive consistent guidance. As you progress, you might transition to one or two sessions per week, supplementing with independent workouts. Ultimately, the ideal frequency varies from person to person, and it's essential to communicate with your trainer to develop a schedule that aligns with your objectives and lifestyle.
