FT Newtonville FAQs
Dec 14, 2009
How many times a week should I come in? That depends on your individual goals and your availability, but our clients generally train between two and four times per week. During your initial fitness evaluation, we will learn from you what your needs and goals are and then discuss a plan that supports those goals.
Will you tell me what to do on my “off” days? In addition to your one-on-one training days, you will be advised on when, how intense, and how much cardiovascular exercise you should do. We can also recommend and teach certain exercises you can do at home and on vacation.
Will you help me with my diet? Unlike most other programs, we do not create a “diet” in the four-letter sense of the word. We will educate you on supportive nutrition and provide you with an “Accountability Journal” and continual information to help you create eating habits for a lifetime.
If one of my goals is to lose weight, how much weight could I expect to lose? You can expect to lose between 1-2 lbs. per week. We’re here to make sure you reach your goals by helping you train consistently and stick to your program.
Are your trainers certified? All of our trainers are nationally certified. But it’s not the degree or the certification that makes us great; it’s our attitude, maturity, the systems, and our application of our knowledge.
Why should I choose Fitness Together over the competition? We don’t have competition. No one else in the area creates customized health and fitness programs conducted in private personal training suites with the level of expertise and customer service that we do. We provide all the services that everyone else lacks.
What are the hours at Fitness Together?
Monday thru Friday: 6 AM – 9 PM Saturday: 8 AM – Noon Sunday: Closed
What kind of equipment do you have?
In our training we utilize the functional training philosophy. This philosophy trains the body to respond to the demands of everyday life and/or recreational sport. With this philosophy we use primarily dumbbells, physioballs, resistance bands, and medicine balls for the majority of our training. We find this to be more effective than using machines that force you to move in a fixed, guided motion. When using dumbbells and resistance bands your body is forced to control itself much more in space, as you are required to do in everyday tasks. We’ve found Functional Training not only is more beneficial for improving your fitness, but it is also better for aesthetic goals and increasing the efficiency of your workouts because you can train multiple muscle groups per exercise and therefore increase caloric expenditure.
What happens if I go out of town?
When you purchase sessions at Fitness Together, those sessions are held in our systems until you use them. You don’t, “use it or lose it.”
More importantly, we will plan a nutrition and exercise program for you to follow while you are out of town so that you don’t undo your progress. We encourage all of our clients to remain accountable to their new exercise and nutritional plan while they are away.
Are there contracts?
At Fitness Together, we want to earn our living by getting you to your fitness goals. There are no contractual obligations or membership fees.
Do I get a discount if I refer someone?
Can I bring a friend with me to try it out?
The more the merrier! We encourage and challenge anyone to come with a friend or relative to try out our facility. In fact, we often find that our husband/wife or mother/daughter teams do better than individuals because of the support that they provide to each other.
How does Fitness Together get results?
Fitness Together gets results because of the incredible amount of time, energy, and experience that we invest in each client! The precise exercise routines, individualized diet plans, and constant fitness testing ensure that our clients are constantly progressing towards their fitness goals. We track our clients every move to be sure they stay on task.
Are there any guarantees?
We guarantee that if you follow our program of good old-fashioned exercise and nutrition that you will feel better, look better, and have fun changing your life!
