Personal Training Q&A


Welcome to our Personal Training Q&A, where we answer common fitness questions to help you on your journey to better health as well as questions about rehabilitation and functional fitness.


Q: How often should you work out? 

A: I recommend aiming for 3-5 workouts per week. However, I will tailor this based on your individual goals, fitness level, and schedule. I will always try and help my clients even on non personal training days.


Q: Why work with a personal trainer? 

A: I firmly believe in the benefits of working with a personal trainer. I offer custom workouts, motivation, and my expert guidance to help you achieve your fitness goals safely and effectively.


Q: Why choose rehab/functional personal training? 

A: It offers tailored exercises, injury prevention, and my expert guidance to enhance your mobility and function. Especially if you're currently in pain with no structural issues.


Q: How Qualified are you?

A: All qualifications are CIMSPA certificated. 

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer.
  • Level 3 Strength & Conditioning for Sport.
  • Level 3 Exercise Referral
  • Level 4 Lower Back Pain Management
  • Functional Neuromuscular Assessment*
  • Level 2 Fitness Instructing.
  • Self-Myofascial Release CPD.


Q: How often should you do rehab/functional workouts? 

A: I recommend aiming for 2-4 sessions weekly, depending on your unique needs and physical condition.


Q: Why are you more expensive than normal Personal Trainers? 

A: Due to my qualifications in both Personal Training, Strength & Conditioning, and Rehabilitation, I offer more knowledge and experience than most common personal trainers.


Q: How can you prevent injuries during rehab training? 

A: I always prioritize proper form, listening to the body, and confidence in my knowledge as we progress gradually in intensity together. I will never make a client do anything they don't feel comfortable doing or believe will harm them. 


Q: How can you prevent workout plateaus? 

A: We can overcome workout plateaus by changing routines every 4-6 weeks, increasing intensity gradually, and focusing on nutrition, which I'll guide you through the progressions we will work together with. 


Q: What should you eat before and after workouts?

A: For pre-workout, I suggest consuming a balanced meal 1-2 hours prior, including protein, healthy fats, and whole grains. After the workout, aim for protein and carbs within 30 minutes for optimal recovery.
