Spring into your fitness regime

Spring into fitness

It’s now early spring, the sun is out and all you can smell is the fresh scent of cut grass. It’s also time to start thinking about your forgotten or long overdue fitness program. Winter is over and you now have no excuses about the cold, darkness and not having the right motivation. Rise and shine people!

Funny how spring is the time where we all magically are in better moods, are no longer “busy” and are ready to take action with our fitness, weight loss and general health.

So what are your Fitness options?

I’ve made it simple for you as I’ve summarised the available options in selecting the right one for you. After reading this you will be better informed as to what to expect in terms of cost, effort and time you will need in reaching you particular goals. It pays to be informed as it will determine what you will get for your cash outlay.

First point to cover is what exactly are your goals? Is it weight loss, an increase in fitness, getting stronger, performance based, some sort of event? There are so many reasons to get out there and be active. This is important as once you determine what they are you will be better placed on making an informed decision.

No point in hiring a fitness trainer when all you want to do is increase your body mass.

Too many times people aren’t sure what they are and take up some sort of fitness regime and quickly lose interest. Don’t be that person.

Semi private personal training

This type of training is generally made up of small groups between 2-4 people and depending on the trainer is an attempt of replicate the same environment as a one on one. (that is keep a close eye on you ) At Claudefit my Semi private personal training options are made up to a maximum of 3 people and its typically family members or couples that enjoy working out together. I feel that any more than this number we as trainers tend to lose the value in paying for a personal training session. This type of training suits the person who has a partner/friend who clearly shares the same interest in working out and are committed to their training. The cost varies from $35 to $45 for each person for the hour. The trainer in these sorts of groups still makes good money and you are not paying the full premium price, however the focus is still there with an experienced PT.

Personal training (1-on-1)

This is clearly for those who expect 100% attention from your trainer and expect within reason the quickest and best results. Otherwise, why bother in hiring a trainer? With an experienced PT you should be able to not only be worked to your capacity (no bucket required) but also looked after with proper technique, nutritional guidance and a program that is achievable by you in its proper application. One on one training is suitable when you can’t achieve the same results by yourself so it makes sense to put a bit of effort in choosing the right one as you will spending a lot of time with them in addition to paying one a premium fee for the benefit of being told simply what to do. A professional working relationship should be a given so shop around and find the best fit. I’ve accumulated over 10 years of this type of training so I guess I’ve got a bit of experience by now. You are looking at paying anything from $30 – $80+ per hour. It all comes down to experience and what type of service is being offered. expect a high level of service, skill-set and experience when paying this sort of money.

Group training

This type of training is as the name suggest, it’s all about the group environment.  A group set up can really vary depending on the type of training you are going to do.  The range of a typical small group run by a personal trainer is usually around 6 to 12 persons and to allows for proper group facilitation.  I’ve run these in the past and have found 8 is more likely my limit. Other trainers would probably take in more and you can find yourself working out with at least 20+ others so be prepared to blend in. Most suitable for people who are after a trainer and not looking at paying  for the previous mentioned options. These are great for work mates and family members to take up together. They are also priced at the more budget conscious and are around the $8 to $15 per session. Most operators even sell the sessions in blocks of ten with a discount and require you to do 2-3 sessions per week. There are many options for this type of set up offering the many entertaining ways in getting you up and mobile. Shop around.

These should more than cover any particular fitness, strength and weight management goals.

Where to find them?

It’s pretty straight forward. These options are available in most commercial gym and community centres around you. A simple google search in your suburb should be a good start. You will find that in larger gyms your options for one on one training are many as most gyms have team of trainers with different skill-sets available for consultation. Check out the type of training specialty they offer and take it from there. (PT’s )Trainers usually offer some sort of trial before you hire them. You will also find most centres have regular group training classes that keep their members happy with lots of variety and are also entertaining. Jump in and give them a go.

Also check out the smaller boutique and local gyms that offer the same service. For some the smaller and less intimidating environment suits them better and staff know all their member names.

Hiring a personal trainer

Hiring a personal trainer

It’s getting to the time of year again when people are starting to think about the oncoming spring months and now focusing on their current fitness, health and wellbeing.  It’s the perfect time to start your fitness regime given that you have plenty of time to prepare yourself for the warmer months ahead.

I myself have been involved with this industry as Claudefit personal training coming to 10 years and in addition have been proactive with my own personal fitness and strength since 1988. The industry since has dramatically changed in many positive ways with now an abundance of choices in getting you fit,strong and leaner within your reach, It’s just a matter of knowing what to look for.

If you are like me and past your late 40’s you are most likely looking for someone who at the very least has a sound working knowledge on how to train people. You will also be expecting to be paying a professional who delivers results and a high level of service for your time, money and effort you will be investing with this specific training resource.

So how do you find the correct personal trainer for you?

Here a few tips on finding the correct one. Given the nature of the industry its best to be armed with the knowledge of exactly what you are getting in return for your investment in time, your hard earned cash and safety. Here are the items that need to be on your checklist in order to make an informed and practical decision.

It’s all about you so be diligent in your choice.

Personal trainers can help people reach their health and fitness goals, or they could be big wastes of money

Experience & Professionalism

Given the variety of choice with our Industry an experience trainer who has time under their belt is certainly a worthy consideration.  For the ones who have been around the industry over 5 years you should be expecting to be with a trainer who has managed to stay busy enough with clients to keep themselves employed and continue to develop their skills. These are the ones who have acted with a sound professional approach and have managed to make a business out of personal training.

Skill set & Ability to deliver results

The expectation of the trainers should be that they’re well versed on their particular choice of skill set they promote. If they promote strength training ,Fitness conditioning , kickboxing or boxing do they have a background in either of these disciplines or was it obtained from a weekend workshop. At Claudefit you are dealing with an experience Martial artist and registered Boxing coach. It’s important to understand which skill you are actually paying for.  It’s not only being thorough but for your own safety as these high impact sports (used for fitness)can injure the client with an overzealous trainer who with all good intentions pushed too hard.

Maturity

It goes without saying that your trainer should exhibit some sort of maturity, and what I mean by this is the ability to verbalise teaching cues without resorting to inappropriate language under the impression of getting you motivated. yelling down at adults isn’t my idea of training you. One of my dislikes in young trainers make questionable remarks on your current shape and overly judge you apparent lack of effort. It’s not our business to make such remarks. It’s ours to train you, educate and deliver results in a professional and supportive environment.  It’s always good to know your trainer also has responsibilities like kids, a mortgage and can understand life outside the gym. Apathy is not the domain of younger trainers who often mistakenly judge you are unmotivated and lazy.

Level of service

As someone with a strong background in client deliverable’s it’s the one item that has allowed me to be in this business for as long as I’ve been. Basically do as you say and follow up all your promises. If your trainer says they will call you, and then expect a call. Having to deal with someone who is consistently late for sessions and forgets important details should not be rewarded for this level of poor service. I previously had my own trainer who was coaching me spend most of our time (that I paid for) on Facebook or confirming the next day’s bookings. I simply cancelled the session on the spot and will never deal with them again irrespective of how “good” they are.

Premises

Safety and cleanliness of premise should be primary goal. Is the equipment being used up to the standard of using it in a commercial environment? You are not paying to use someone’s home gym set so expect to be working with equipment that is properly designed for this purpose. Again this is an issue of safety as you need to know the equipment can withstand the constant abuse it takes every day. A simple “cheapo” home gym simply won’t cut it. In addition a dirty gym reflects badly on the trainer.

Approach & personality  

This is an important component in getting the right trainer as you need to be aware how your potential trainer will approach the way they train you. Will they go all out and treat it as a boot camp, will they conducted as a slow and drawn out workshop (boring) or simply deliver the workout as you requested with a sound understanding of training protocols. Far too many times in my experience I have seen newbies somewhat destroyed by their trainer because they thought this is the way to achieve results.

My methods are simple. Claudefit gets you to move better, establish a solid base of all over strength and ensure that you fitness level compliment the other elements. Once this base of body conditioning is achieved it tends to work out that my clients are the ones pushing themselves as the feel how hard to work during out session and get the results they are after.

Remember you need to crawl before you walk.
