No Excuse Fitness FAQ
You have questions and we have answers. We’ve taken some of the most popular questions we’ve received over the past several years and combined them all in our Frequently Asked Questions section of this site
Why hire a personal trainer?
The role of the personal trainer is changing. It used to be that celebrities and wealthy individuals were the only people that used personal trainers. The stereotype of a personal trainer used to be that of a big bodybuilder. Today, the personal trainer is a highly skilled professional that has been educated and certified to work with various types of clients. Children as young as 7-years-old, 80-year-old men and women, obese adults, athletes, cancer recovery patients, and adults with diseases all benefit from working with personal trainers. Clients are using personal trainers for fat loss, weight gain, flexibility, improve posture, alleviate stress, increase energy, rehab an injury, improve quickness, general health benefits, and cancer recovery.

HOW WILL MY TRAINER KNOW WHAT PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Prior to getting started, our personal trainers will meet with you for a free consultation. During this time, our personal trainers will ask you questions about your fitness goals, past history with exercise, etc, to get an idea of what type of program is right for you. All of our personal training programs are specifically tailored to meet each client’s specific goals.
WHO SHOULD I TALK TO ABOUT WHICH PROGRAM WOULD BE BEST FOR ME?
DO I NEED EQUIPMENT FOR IN-HOME ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING?
IS NO EXCUSE FITNESS A GYM OR A PRIVATE PERSONAL TRAINING STUDIO?
No Excuse Fitness is not a gym. We do not require a gym membership or allow clients to train on their own without the guidance of a personal trainer. No Excuse Fitness is a private, personal training studio where only the client and personal trainer work together privately 1on1 with a safe, friendly no judgment environment.
WHAT EXACTLY DOES A PERSONAL TRAINER DO?
At No Excuse Fitness, our personal trainers are highly skilled, nationally certified and have many roles when working with clients. Your personal trainer will serve as a coach, teacher, and motivator. It is the personal trainer’s job to assess your current physical and mental state, establish very specific goals, design an individualized program, and do whatever it takes to keep you on track towards getting results.
CAN WE SHARE A PERSONAL TRAINER?
Of Course, you can! If you would like to share one of our personal trainers with a friend, spouse, or coworker to save money or for more support? No problem, we can do that. We can still give you high-quality instruction plus safety with only 2 people per trainer. Contact us to find out how the second person can train for half off saving you even more $$$! Text or Call
WHAT ABOUT NUTRITION?
WHAT ARE SOME THINGS THAT YOU WILL MEASURE TO SEE IF I'M MAKING ANY IMPROVEMENTS?
Resting heart rate (RHR)
A stronger, more efficient heart will have a lower RHR.
Measure your hips, waist, thighs, and calves (and anything else you may want to keep track of.
If you need to lose body fat, these measurements will decrease gradually as you lose fat. Bear in mind that at the same time, hopefully, you are gaining muscle.
Body Fat Assessment
Our personal trainer will perform a body fat test either through tape measure, electric impedance, or calipers
Anecdotally, this seems to be the last thing to rely on. You may only notice a decrease in weight after seeing other improvements in your body.
HOW FAST WILL I GET RESULTS?
Within one week you will feel a difference, within 2 weeks feel different in your clothes, in the 3rd week feel stronger, more flexible and elevated happiness. Week 4, you will be assessed to find out what progress you have made. Within 30 days, you will have burned body fat and increased lean muscle, driving your metabolism higher, as well as your body will feel firmer. Within 90 days, you could be a whole different person! We are known for getting results! Check out our testimonials & reviews.
