What is 1-on-1 Training?

A 1-on-1 training session is where I train you by yourself standing next to you and telling you what to do, how to perform the exercise and exactly how many reps to do.

It is a personalized training session built for YOUR needs. I know you’re busy, so you arrive and I put you to work for 30 minutes, 45 minutes or whatever you select. I maximize every moment and show you and tell you what to do.

It’s actually kind of relaxing because while I’m tough, you can focus on the exercise and nothing else. Sure it’s intense, but you’ll feel and see the results.

I Maximize Every Minute of Every Training Session

I train busy professionals who have very hectic schedules. I make sure that the minute they walk in the door for their one-on-one personal training session workouts that every minute of their time is maximized.

Some people train to lose weight, others want to get stronger, gain muscle, become fit, or need help recovering muscle tone after an injury or illness. Other clients train to get and stay fit but everybody needs to be encouraged and pushed through the toughest part of the workouts–when they want to quit!

Clients, you’ll begin working out the minute you walk in the door. I’ll stand at your side for every exercise and I guide you through every workout.

When you want to quit, I’ll keep you going. Training may include TRX Suspension training, weight training, strength training, cardio, or toning so you’ll never get bored.

Everyone wants to know the secret to losing weight and there isn’t one. You’ll have to eat the right foods, learn about what’s good and what’s bad for you, stop crazy dieting and workout regularly, especially when you don’t feel like it.

How Long Until I See Changes?

My answer is that everyone’s metabolism is different. Everyone’s body is different. Males may lose weight a little quicker due to their testosterone levels than women. There is no formula or timing for weight loss.

If you eat healthy, don’t miss your workouts, drink plenty of water and get a good night’s sleep you will see changes in your physique within the first few weeks of working out with me. I can’t make you lose weight or eat right, but I do help you workout.

Weight Loss is the No. 1 Goal

The No. 1 goal of most people is weight loss. And everyone wants to know how long will it take to lose weight when you start working out? The answer is that it varies and the answer is up to you. Are you ready to eat the right foods? Can you eat more of the right foods your body needs? Will you eat smaller portions? Can you cut down on sugar, salt, fast food, fried, food, dangerous fatty and the bad carbs? Your diet will determine a gread deal of your success in the gym.

Healthy foods fuel your body and should taste good but using seasoning instead of salt. You can learn how to prepare food by replacing salts, sauces and gravy with seasonings. You can increase your intake of vegetables, protein while cutting out junk food and lots of fat and sugar. Learn about the good carbs. There are a lot of good carb choices to learn about.

You have to eat properly and have learn about healthy foods so that you know what you can eat to help your body as you work out, do cardio, lift weights. You’ll feel better if you drink lots of water, get your rest and have a healthy diet.

Want to Get Healthy? Start Working Out

You may or may not want to lose weight. I work with people who don’t want to lose weight. I work with people who just want to get toned and look and feel fit and get healthy. I work with a lot of people who have health problems, who have injuries, who are recovering from surgery or from illness or serious injury that they’re trying to recover from.

I make sure that when you exercise that you have very carefully created workouts so that you don’t hurt yourself. You’ll learn proper form, customized, restricted workouts after an illness, surgery or injury. We’ll go slowly, you can get stronger gradually and together we’ll work out safely.

With my help you can recover and get back to your old self. If you’re hoping to get better, we’ll work together to reach your goals whatever they are.

Losing Weight is a Battle of Will

One of the biggest issues for people is usually losing weight and that’s a matter of how strong you can be. Can you resist eating foods you crave? Will you lose weight when you work out? That answer will depend on you. No, you can’t eat whatever you want and lose weight and have a perfect body.

Yes, you’ll lose weight when you commit to eating right and cut out unhealthy foods. When you stop eating fried food, candy, desserts and fast food. When you stop eating ice cream before bed and donuts and cookies on coffee breaks. Your ability to lose weight is up to you because only you can control your appetite. Your ability to lose weight means that you’ll have to give up the foods you know you shouldn’t be eating. It’s hard, but if you want it badly enough, you’ll do it.

Ready to Get Started?

So are you ready to get started working out? I’m going to be tough on you in the gym and I want you to be honest with me about what you’re eating. You can lie to yourself, but you can’t fool me because your body doesn’t lie.

If you’re not sticking to a food plan, your body will tell on you. If you’re still sneaking candy bars every night when you drive home after work or school, and then expect to “work it off at the gym” it’s not going to work. You have to eat the right foods to shape your body.

If you want to eat badly, it’s your choice. If at the end of the day you want someone to train you because you eat poorly and can’t control your diet then I’ll help you do what you can to workout the right way. We’ll customize a plan for your body type, and target some activities and workouts that will help you burn calories, tone your muscle, increase your strength and stamina.

No matter how hard you workout, no mater how many times or how long you do cardio,You have to eat healthy to lose weight your personal nutrition is the key to your success. You can keep a food log. You eat differently. But your body will tell on you if you’re eating foods like desserts, fast food, junk food, fried food,  overdoing it with the sauces, cheeses, sugar, salt, dips and gravies.

When your eating habits and food choices are right and you’re 100% committed to eating the right foods, working out regularly, then, you will have your answer to your weight loss issues.

You will lose weight when you’re eating right. Proper nutrition is 85% of weight loss and getting physically fit. Some things you eat may not be the right food choices and it’s important to make changes.

When you’re doing cardio, weight-bearing exercises and making healthy food choices you’ll be on the path to weight loss. I can train you, I can help you to write down what you eat, but you have to commit to your goals. It’s my job to guide you.

How important is food to reaching my fitness goals?

eat fresh vegetables with every meal to eat healthy and lose weight If you’re trying to lose some body fat food choices will be 80 to 85% of your success. If you’re trying to get more toned and defined, again 80 to 85% is going to be from food.

You can do all the exercises you want five to seven days a week. But if you don’t follow a healthy food plan you will not see that body fat go down.  If you want to lose inches or see the scale go down, eat healthy food. However you will feel healthier and more energized from doing all the exercises but again, you will not see the change of the weight coming down or the body fat dropping.

I like to work with people who have made personal promises to themselves, to their families, to their loved ones that it’s time to make a healthy change for the better. Working out will give you energy, make you feel healthier and you’ll sleep better.

Eating Healthy is the First Step

Healthy living is not only my career it’s my way of life. I work out daily, I eat healthy food and cook meals with recipes that replace seasonings and ingredients to make healthy food taste delicious.

What you eat should be your biggest concern. I know how hard it is to find time to eat healthy food or prepare it when you work, have children, school. If you want your workouts to matter, you have to eat the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, vegetables and begin cutting out what you know is bad for you.

It’s not going to happen overnight because change takes time, but the longer you wait, the worse you’re going to feel. When I work you out, you’ll need to have the right food to power up for your training sessions. Get ready by starting today.
