Q & A
Here our some of our more frequently asked questions:
Q: What should I expect during my first Training Session?
A: Please download our personal training health history questionnaire and have it filled out and ready for your trainer to review. After the questionnaire and your goals are discussed the training session will begin.
Be prepared to exercise by wearing comfortable clothes and gym shoes. Your first session will allow your trainer to observe your movement capabilities, so it will not be to the full intensity of training sessions to come. Everybody needs to allow their body to acclimate to new exercises and movements.
Q: What will happen after my training session?
A: At this point you and your trainer will need to decided how to proceed. Depending on your experience level most new clients train 2 to 5 times per week and must book their appointments in advance to assure their time slot is held for them.
It is important to work with a trainer more frequently in the beginning of new exercise program implementation as it is likely that you will need the time to remember proper form and exercise execution which cannot be learned in one session. If you are an advanced athlete then you might be able to get by with one session to build off of your existing knowledge however for most beginners it is not advisable to learn everything you need to know for a full exercise program in 45 minutes to an hour.
It just is not possible to have the greatest amount of success by trying to learn something in that short of time.
Q: When can I expect to lose weight or gain muscle?
A: Every person is different. There is no one specific answer to this question. The variables are this: weight, body fat percentage, nutritional and exercise habits. Some people desire to lose unrealistic amounts of body fat without cleaning up their nutrition. All the exercise in the world will not wash away all of the white bread, doughnuts and cheese burgers they eat in a day.
However, if a client commits to a consistent exercise program in addition to making better nutritional decisions, their results will show through rather quickly.

Q: What can I expect during my massage appointment?
A: Please download our massage health history questionnaire and have it filled out and ready for your massage therapist to review. Once we have discussed any concerns or muscle target areas, we will then take you to a private massage room where you will disrobe to a level of your comfort knowing that you will be covered by the massage linens/blankets at all times with the exception of the area that your therapist is working on.
We take great pride in making our clients as comfortable as possible, using table warmers if needed, so please tell us if you are comfortable during your massage. You will always be treated with respect and if at any time you or the therapist wishes to discontinue the massage you have the right to do so.
Sexual advances, comments or general misconduct is not allowed by our company from either the client or the therapist. This will be grounds for immediate termination of the massage session.
You can be sure that we will provide you with services of the utmost dignity and professionalism.
Q: Should I talk to the therapist during my massage? What if I fall asleep?
A: Some people like to make general conversation throughout the massage, however you should not feel like you have to chat with your therapist. After all you're there to relax and the therapist is used to having people be completely silent. Sometimes clients are so relaxed that they fall asleep to the extent that they snore! Don't worry, the therapist will gently awaken you when it is time to turn over, or if the massage time has expired. It's perfectly OK to close your eyes and relax, which is what most people do. If you fall asleep, that's OK too.
If the therapist is working on the deeper layers of muscle during a deep tissue or sports massage they might ask for more feedback to make sure they are working the areas adequately or to ensure that the pressure is not uncomfortable.
Be sure to speak up if:
- the room is too hot or too cold
- you experience pain
- you have any questions related to the massage
- there's anything you forgot to mention during the consultation
