F. A. Q.
How often should I work out?
In general, it is recommended that you start with 3 exercise sessions per week. Over time, you can progress to 4 to 5 days per week. If you progress slowly and vary your exercise routines, you will avoid any injury from overuse or exercise exhaustion. Therefore, it is important to seek advice from a fitness professional - to find out how to save yourself from injury and exhaustion!
I have never exercised before, is strength training safe for me?
Strength training is safe for most people, but we always recommend an initial assessment where you can find possible limitations for some movements or techniques before starting any exercise program. As long as you start slowly and don't try to progress too fast, you will find great benefits from strength training.
Do I need to diet in addition to exercising, or will exercising alone give me good results?
Most diets usually only provide a temporary solution to a long-term problem and this is why we try to discourage them. We strongly encourage a permanent behavioral change that you can live with, both in exercise and nutritional patterns. A healthy diet, combined with proper exercise, will help you achieve your desired goals much faster than diet or exercise alone. In addition, exercise and healthy eating together will ensure that you keep the excess weight off for the rest of your life!
How long will it take before I see the results?
It usually takes 8-12 weeks before you start to "see" the results. You will mostly feel them before you see them. The type of results you "see" is very individual and depends on your basic physical condition, how hard and how often you exercise, and what your goals are. More importantly, however, you will "feel" the results of exercise almost immediately. At Sculptors, we believe that "obsessing" over visual results will only become a barrier to the whole process, so we're more sympathetic to paying attention to all the other great things exercise can do for you, like increasing your energy, reducing stress levels and improving your strength.
Will you put me on a diet?
Personal trainers cannot ethically, or legally, tell their clients what foods to eat or give meal plans, as they are not graduate nutritionists and it is against our 'scope of practice' to advise on specific supplements our clients should take. However, what we can do is review the basis of your nutritional pattern, check with you what you already know is not good for you and help you set a commitment to change those habits by working on your awareness and responsibility. We also have specialist nutritionist support that can help you make permanent lifestyle changes and behavioral modifications if you have complicated medical issues or health needs, we can refer you.
How to choose the right Personal Trainer?
Interview several trainers. Regardless of where you find your personal trainer, it's important to interview them first. You may even consider interviewing several trainers to make sure you find the right one for you, to see which person is best for your needs. You can also ask them if you can see them working with other clients. You'll be able to observe their personal training style, and how they motivate their clients. Ask the trainer everything you need to know before you decide. Review your trainer's credentials and certifications as part of your interview process. Ask to see their insurance, licenses, and any other credentials or certifications they have. Remember, a poor choice is not only a risk of injury but most importantly, a way for you to stop the whole life-changing process.
