Personal Training is the one to one tuition of exercise by a qualified and experienced coach. A Personal Trainer addresses your specific needs by creating a training program that takes into account medical history, exercise history, lifestyle factors, body type, abilities, limitations, goals, diet and more. Nadeen is a BCRPA registered personal trainer with current CPR and first aid certifications.
What is Personal Training?
Personal Training is working one-on-one with a certified personal trainer who will demonstrate exercises and mentor you through safe and effective methods, measuring and recording progress as you go. Due to the interpersonal contact between trainer and client, the trainer is able to motivate and support the individual to provide a nurturing and progressive environment.
What takes place during a Personal Training session?
You’ll begin with 5-10 minutes of warm up to ready the body for exercise. The “work” portion of the session typically lasts 40-45 minutes and consists of full body exercises utilizing cables, balls, dumbbells, and your own body weight, plus short periods of cardio. The session ends with a 10 minute stretch by Nadeen, making sure you aren’t too sore the day after. Nadeen’s role is to motivate, support and instruct you through your program.
How long is each Personal Training session?
Each Personal Training session is 60 minutes in duration. This breaks down into a 5-10 minute warm up, 40-45 minutes exercising, and 10 minutes cool down and stretching. The session will be paced to meet your fitness level, making sure you’re challenged but not exhausted.
How many sessions do you need to see results?
Personal Training programs vary in length depending on your situation and goals. Most people need a minimum of 8 sessions with Nadeen to develop a routine and notice changes like fat reduction, strength gain and a more positive outlook. You may choose to come once, twice or 3 times a week depending on your situation. In general, training more frequently will yield faster results.
Where does the training take place?
Nadeen has relationships with multiple gym locations in downtown Vancouver and also runs outdoor sessions in the Vancouver area. Nadeen also runs sessions in personal gyms and can arrange drop in sessions in gyms further afield.
What if you’re unfit?
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t been active in some time, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly and positively your body will react to regular exercise. Nadeen will create a program based on your specific situation; allowing for medical history, prior injuries, lifestyle and nutrition factors, abilities, limitations, and goals. You’ll receive 100% of her attention during each 60 minute session, in which you’ll get the support, instruction and motivation you need to progress.
What if you have an injury?
Many of us suffer from knee, shoulder or low back pain caused by injury. An effective exercise program will help to rehabilitate the problem area and alleviate pain. You won’t be doing exercises that agitate your injuries. Nadeen will appropriately modify exercises so they strengthen weak areas and lengthen tight ones. Many clients experience complete relief from chronic pain after only a few weeks of regular training.
