What if I am in terrible shape and hate to exercise?
You have come to the right trainer. I specialize in getting extremely poorly conditioned people into an exercise program safely, comfortably, and with minimal pain. Many of my clients were people who had not exercised on a regular basis in their entire life or not at all.
You cannot expect to get into shape in a day or a week. It takes time. You must make a long-term commitment to fitness. Many people try to do too much too soon. They end up injured or so sore that they never go back to working out. You must begin at a level that is appropriate to your current level of fitness. I will gradually increase the intensity of your workout as your condition improves. Your workout will continually be challenging yet safe with no risk of injury. If you work out consistently you will be amazed at the results and how great you feel. Persistence is the key to getting the results you desire.
You must believe to achieve!
How many days a week are necessary?
For strength training, two days a week are adequate but three days per week is best. For cardiovascular training, three days per week is the minimum to achieve results. Five days a week is optimal. For weight loss, interval training five days per week would be the most effective. Remember even if you cannot exercise several times a week you can still benefit from some activity.
How long does it take to see results?
If you work out regularly it will only take a few weeks to notice a difference. The more unconditioned you are the faster you will see results. You will begin to feel stronger and see muscle tone very rapidly. It is also imperative that you follow a proper diet.
