FAQS

Q: How long until I see results?

A: We assess our clients regularly. Our clients who have followed our complete weekly plan and journaled their healthy nutrition plans have consistently seen positive results, including remarkable improvements in strength and endurance during this period. Like most things in life, the more YOU put into it, the more YOU will get out of it.

Typically we have seen 5lbs lost in as little as a month....  

Q: How many times a week does the typical client work out?

A: There are no “typical” clients – everyone’s program is unique to their goals, their time commitment, and their budget.  Some of our clients train 2-4 times per week. 

4 times per week for best results.

What if I am too old to start working out?

  The aging process has a lot to do with inactivity and lifestyle.  I have seen clients start out with us in their late 60's and get in better shape physically and mentally than they were in their 40's.  Being too old is a mental state that eventually leads us to the physical state.  We strive to help coach people back to that competitive nature that keeps us all moving forward in life. 

 

What makes FT work?

 

FT has been in the personal training business for over 20 years perfecting coaching methods.  We try to entertain the philosophy that all clients learn from different techniques.  Some may be hands on, while others love verbal ques.  We take the learning curve of nutrition, exercise, and cardio and cut it down to the basics. We truly believe that no one can achieve their goals without looking at these areas and reevaluating how they affect progress

 

Why FT?

Why should I use a trainer?

The main reasons to use a trainer idealy come from the individual.  Some may have injured themselves in the past with certain exercises and may have a fear there now.  While others it just comes down to motivation and variety.  I believe that a productive trainer in the right environment can simplify the process of moving past certain physical plateaus.

Why should I use an FT trainer over a gym trainer?

 

I truly believe that it takes a special individual to be able to work one on one with any type of clientele.  There needs to be a certain knowledge base within the trainer to start.  At FT Mansfield, we are all at a minimum of bachelors in our field of expertise.  Some have their masters as well.  This does not always make a successful trainer though.  Second is the ability to pick up subtle ques that someone may be mechanically out of line.  Whether shoulder range of motion is an issue down to ankles rolling in when we walk, we take the time to address and explain these areas and why they may have lead to other discomfort in the body.  Third is the fact that we can take the time to customize an eating routine based on your previous eating habits.  I have seen and experienced myself in a big box gym the nutrition analysis.  Starts like this " I have typed in your goal weight and here is a list of what to eat and not."  What about teaching people how to eat in real life?  We were not made to eat the same things 100% of the time and when you simply coach someone that their success lives or dies by following a printed out "diet", failure becomes imminent.
