Below are the answers to some FAQ but feel free to contact Anthony with any other questions.
How much does it cost? Good question, personal training prices can be found on our fitness page.
How do I pay? Technology has made it so fast, simple and easy to pay for things and is ever changing so these can be easily set up via Internet banking. You can also pay by bank transfer, cash or cheque.
Where is Little Compton? Little Compton is based in between Chipping Norton and Moreton-in-Marsh on the A44. We also offer online training to those further afield. If you are interested in this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I am really overweight? Best we get started then! Everyone has a health evaluation during our intake session. But being overweight is no problem, we tailor the programme to your needs.
Do I have to fill in some forms? That’s right, just a few questions to help us build up a picture and make your programme more personal and effective.
Am I going to be lifting big heavy weights? That’s up to you, it depends if you want to or not. If you want to build muscle then yes, but we have a variety of ways to workout including bodyweight, TRX, Boxercise and various equipment to aid in fat loss and fitness improvement.
Will you shout at me? Depends if you want to be shouted at, but probably not. Gentle encouragement and motivation is usually enough.
I have an injury; can you help? This depends on what injury, we can assess and if necessary refer you to the relevant medical professional. Your well being is our main concern, real pain and discomfort is your body telling you something is wrong and to stop.
I want to work out with my friend, can you have multiple people in the session? Yes, with prior notice we can adapt as necessary. But everyone will need to fill in a short questionnaire and sign a disclaimer. Safety first and all that!
I have to look after the children, is that a problem? Good question, we can work around the situation and adapt accordingly.
How long do fitness sessions last? From start to finish usually an hour, to include sufficient warm up, workout, laughter and warm down.
What will we do in a fitness session? This depends on the goal you are working towards, so will vary. But certainly have fun, work hard, laugh, sweat, improve and enjoy.
Can you give me an exercise programme to do on other days? Glad you asked. It’s very important to stay active every day and be able to adjust your programme if you are away, travelling or very short of time.
I’m training for an event, race, run, specific sport – can you help? Yes, having competed in triathlons, 10km races, 75+ obstacle course races, a 20 mile race to the top of Snowdon, the 22 mile+ longest obstacle course race in the world plus played football, tennis, golf, badminton, squash and skied around Europe etc – we have plenty of experience and can take on anything you have signed up for and train specifically for that.
Will I ache afterwards? Probably yes, especially when we first start out before your body begins to adapt. We shall advise on rest days or the level of activity in the days after a fitness session.
What should I eat beforehand? This depends on your schedule, timing of the session and your own experiences. Nobody knows your body better than you. Ideally try not to eat anything heavy for 2 hours before a fitness session. Stick to water, coffee, green tea – and avoid sugary/energy drinks.
Cancelling/Rescheduling a session If you need to cancel or reschedule a call please try to give 24 hours’ notice. Life is a game and sometimes sends us a little test to see how we deal with it, so if you have a Lastminute.com drama or emergency we shall do our very best to find a new time that is suitable. If we are unable to rearrange then unfortunately you will forfeit that session, sad face.
Are you qualified? Very important question to ask. Yes, I am, I trained with Lifetime and have a Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training, I am also a registered Boxercise and TRX instructor and trained in First Aid with the Red Cross.
What clothing should I wear? Generally, trainers, sports leggings/shorts and t-shirt plus a hoodie/warmer layer to complete the warm up in. It might sound obvious but the best advice is to invest in a decent supporting sports bra. If you have long hair it might be useful tying it up.
Can I smoke during a session? I think we both know the answer to that. I ask that all clients refrain from smoking before during and after the session whilst I am in the vicinity.
You haven’t answered my question! No problem, feel free to email me at email@example.com and I shall do my best to find you an answer as soon as humanly possible.
