That depends on your plan, your budget and how often you want to come into the gym. For Clients who purchase 1 on 1 personal training packages we provide them with their workout program and workout sheets so that they can do workouts on their own as well as with their trainer.
Are you going to teach me how to design plans?
Not directly. The service is that of a coach-client relationship and not that of a teacher-student rapport. That said, in providing you with the info required for you to get the most out of your plans and helping you troubleshoot, over time, you should pick up a great deal as a secondary benefit.
How often are plans changed?
Exercise: Most often, plans run on a 4-week system. When needed, we’ll revise plans more or less often but most people are most successful when they’re given plans that run for 4 weeks.
Nutrition: Meal plans are changed when needed. This need may be due to goals, progress, scheduling, incompatibility, etc. More often than not, because the meal plans we provide offer a great deal of flexibility and variety, once we find a structure that works, it’ll remain unchanged for long periods of time (small manipulations, aside).
Supplements: Very much the same as meal plans. We’ll occasionally suggest specialty supplements, that are to be run for short periods of time but otherwise, we like to find a base plan that works for you and stick to it (e.g. protein powder, greens, fish oil, and amino acids)
