Top 5 Questions You Should Ask Your Personal Trainer

If you are investing in working with a personal trainer then you deserve to get the value out of every dime you are paying. It’s called ‘personal’ training for a reason.

Yesterday I gave you some questions that your trainer should ask you before taking you into the gym for a workout, so today I want to arm you with questions to ask them.

trainer screaming

What kind of trainer do you want?

  • What style of trainer are you? You need to know what their temperament is…what if they yell like a Drill Sargent and that intimidates you? The sessions aren’t going to be productive. Or on the flip side, what if they are a push-over? Will you be challenged enough to succeed in reaching your goals? If the trainer can’t honestly tell you their style, walk away.
  • What type of support do you offer outside of the training sessions? Listen, I know personal training isn’t cheap. But for my clients, they get what they pay for – support throughout the week with exercise plans, encouragement via text or email or even phone calls, nutritional guidance, answers to questions, etc. If the only thing you are getting out of your trainer is the session time, you are being cheated.
  • How will you personalize my plan? I can’t say it enough, if it is going to be called ‘personal’ training then the plan should be unique to you, your needs, your abilities, and your goals. Not everyone should be put through a BootCamp style session, and not everyone should complete repetitive exercises session after session. You are paying to improve your health and that can only be accomplished through personalized plans with varying difficulty to meet your needs and challenge your thresholds.
  • How will you track my progress? Certainly you have the ability to watch the scale and see differences in how your clothes fit but it shouldn’t be up to you to make notes of inches lost or increases in your ability to lift heavier or do more repetitions. In addition, your trainer should regularly work with you to set short and long-term goals and help you track your progress. They should provide encouragement through the times your willpower is down, they should help redirect when the goal isn’t grounded in reality, and above all they should be your biggest ‘front row clapper with a standing ovation’ each and every time you make progress towards your goals.
  • How will you keep me accountable? Change requires accountability, period. Along with being your biggest cheerleader, your trainer should be one of your biggest accountability partners. Life happens, I get that. Sometimes we can’t avoid a sick child or a last minute assignment from work. However, if we are going to achieve our goals we also can’t let those things be excuses. Your trainer should be able to read through the lines of the excuses and hold your feet to the fire. There are plenty of ways to do this that aren’t nasty, and as your trainer it’s their job to call you on it.

You’re paying for a premium personalized service and that is what you deserve. Don’t settle for less. I’m not writing this to put down other trainers, I’m writing this to empower you so you know your money is being well spent and that you have a partner that will invest in you and your health.

If you have questions about working with a trainer contact me. I don’t necessarily have to be your trainer to help you. I’d certainly like to be, but more importantly, I’d like to help you find the person that can best help you achieve health and happiness. If you are in the Lombard, Elmhurst or Glen Ellyn area, let’s meet for coffee and talk about your goals…my treat.

Top 15 Things a Trainer Should Ask You Before Creating Your Fitness Plan

The temps have been up in the Chicago area but the sun has been down. Multiple days in a row with little to no sun can send me into a bit of a funk. Nothing extreme, but enough to know that even though the temp is projected to drop 10 degrees tomorrow, the prospect of seeing the sun wins over 40 degree temps.

This got me thinking…why on Earth am I letting the lack of sunshine affect my mood. I know what picks me up so I got up and did it – for me I practiced TurboKick and all the while was thankful that I’m now working hard to learn new things that I love, rather than working hard to manage projects that deep in my heart really didn’t interest me.

But another VERY important thing occurred to me…if you aren’t one who likes to exercise, when you are stressed, or in a funk exercise sounds like the most absurd thing to relieve your bad feelings.

The thing is, when we don’t feel well, whether it’s because of stress, anger, disappointment, etc. the thing we want most is to feel good again. But what makes us each feel ‘good’ again is unique to each of us.

For some it’s prayer or good conversation, for others it’s a drink or some chocolate, for others it’s putting your face in a pillow and screaming or taking deep breaths. The point is each of us are unique, and find comfort or coping, if you will, in different ways to relieve the feelings dragging us down.


Trainers need to be enlightened on your specific needs before they can create a plan.

BING!!! LIGHT BULB!!! In all my years of being a personal trainer and even a group fitness instructor I’ve spent a great deal of time learning about my clients habits, preferences and temptations, but I don’t specifically ask, ‘What is your “GOTO” when you feel bad? What do you do when your willpower is at it’s lowest and when exercise is about the last thing you can imagine will relieve stress?’

As a trainer, if I am going to support someone during the tough times, I have to know the signs to recognize when they are there, but also know how to build them up so they keep going.

All of this got me thinking that if you’ve never worked with a personal trainer before you might not know what to expect. Here are some questions that every good trainer should ask you before putting you through a workout if they are promising you an individualized plan.

Top 15 Questions Your Trainer Should Ask Before Creating Your Fitness Plan

  • Why do you want to work with a trainer?
  • What are your expectations of our time together?
  • What types of GOALS would you like to achieve?
  • How many days a week will you workout out while not with me?
  • What equipment do you have available to you?
  • Do you want strictly home workouts or will you go to the gym?
  • What things do you like to do?
  • What things do you not like to do?
  • What things intimidate you?
  • Do you have any health concerns or injuries that need to be considered?
  • What time of the day is best for you to exercise?
  • Who do you know that is supportive of your efforts to achieve greater health?
  • Who do you know that may be a roadblock or tempt you from straying from your goals?
  • Do you use any technology to track your activity and nutrition?
  • How do you prefer to communicate (email, text, phone calls)?

I talk all the time about creating personalized plans – and I wholeheartedly believe that is the only way to succeed. But in order to do that, I need to know more about you as a person – you are not a one size fits all solution sold in a book off the shelf. You are a unique person with individualized needs and deserve a personalized plan that will enable you to make the changes you want to achieve.

Be sure your trainer is committed to YOU as a person and invests in YOUR goals. If you are interested in talking to me more about your goals and are unsure if working with a personal trainer is right for you, drop me a line, I’d be happy to answer any questions you have. If you are going to work with a trainer I would hope it would be me, but more importantly, I want you to work with the trainer that is the right fit for your needs.

Tomorrow I’ll write more about the questions you should ask every trainer before working with them.

Healthy New Years Resolutions

new years resolution

With Christmas just 9 days away and New Years just 15 days away, the thoughts of New Years resolutions will likely be hot topics of conversation. There is something about a new year that inspires people to make change, just like most new diets begin on Mondays.

In 2012 Time Magazine released a list of the 10 Most Commonly Broken New Year’s Resolutions. It’s not a surprise among the list of ten include:

  • Lose Weight and Get Fit
  • Eat Healthier and Diet
  • Be Less Stressed

However, what is more interesting are the results of New Years Resolutions as published by University of Scranton. Journal of Clinical Psychology in January of 2014. According to their study only 8% of people actually follow through and succeed on their resolutions. Only 8%!?

Seems like a pretty discouraging statistic, right? But I don’t think it has to be, I think the reason people fail to follow through is that they have failed to create a plan. So as you begin to think about your New Years Resolutions for 2015, consider the following:

You Need SMART Goals

Each of the failed resolutions listed above are entirely too general. For instance, instead of lose weight, determine how much you want to lose in a certain amount of time. Then, how are you going to accomplish the weight loss? Are you going to start weight watchers? Are you going to use a free calorie tracker? Are you going to give up soda? You have to determine specific steps you will take to ‘lose weight.’ Without a goal and a plan you aren’t committed to actually making the change.

You Need Accountability

I’ve written on willpower in the past – at some point the temptations will become greater than our ability to resist. When we connect with someone, whether it be a friend, a family member, a personal trainer or group fitness instructor, etc. you become accountable for doing what you said you are going to do. An accountability partner should not only be invested in you but also in achieving the same types of goals. Let’s say your goal is to ‘get fit.’ One of the best accountability partners you can find is someone who already enjoys exercise. Pairing up with someone who also is good at finding excuses for skipping the gym likely isn’t the best choice for achieving your goal.

You Need Expertise

Stop spending money on the latest fad diet book or workout DVDs and connect with a professional in your area. Think about it, why are we willing to spend hundreds of dollars for an ‘at-home’ solution when none of the past solutions have been effective? Instead, invest some time and money to partner with a personal trainer or nutritionist that can give you practical advice and support. Having a one-on-one relationship with a professional is going to help to support your unique needs and goals – no book or DVD is a one size fits all, which is why they aren’t effective in helping you succeed.

If you need help defining your New Years resolutions this year, drop me a line. I’d be happy to take some time to help you create a plan that not only meets your needs, but that you can successfully accomplish.

Why Personal Training is Worth the Investment

As a married mom of three I understand the challenges of budgeting both money and time. In many cases we put our desires and even some times our needs on the back burner to make sure that everyone else in the family is taken care of. Today I’d like to take a few minutes to explain to you why I believe that personal training is worth both the money and the time for you and your family.

We all know what it feels like to be stressed, to be pulled in a number of different directions and not feel like we have the time for any of it. So how can adding yet another thing be beneficial?


Personal Trainers keep you motivated to complete your goals!

Exercise gives you a much needed break.

Sometimes when we are up to our ears in work obligations and taking care of the household the thing we need the most is a breather. Remember the commercial, ‘Calgon, take me away!’? And while a bath may be relaxing, if you’re anything like me it will be cut short either because someone is knocking on the door and needs something, or the weight of all the things that need to be done makes the bath feel like a huge waste of time. Rather taking a break to exercise will not only help you escape from all of the demands from work and home but also give you the chance to improve your health. Working with a personal trainer maximizes the benefits of your much needed break. Unlike with group fitness, the entire session designed around your needs. Who wants to spend 30 minutes doing cardio when they hate cardio? Who wants to wander around the machines or free weights in the gym and not really know which exercises will benefit them the most? Taking an hour to work with a trainer won’t make you feel like the time was wasted.

Exercise is a great stress reliever.

There are scientific reasons that exercise releases stress, but in general, I don’t think that means much to most people. If you’re like me you want to know the ‘practical’ reasons exercise is a stress reliever. What better way to release stress than to slam a medicine ball, or sweating it out with some cardio? What about the good feelings that come along with lifting a heavier weight, doing a higher box jump or completing more repetitions? The feeling of accomplishment will always take over the weight of stress and there is nothing more than personal trainers want for their clients is to achieve a new personal best. That personal best is just that – it is your personal best. You aren’t being measured against anyone else, nor are you watching others out of the corner of your eye measuring yourself against them. Training sessions aren’t just about burning fat and building muscle, they are just as much about building you up as a person and relieving the stresses that bring you down.

Exercise is a return on investment.

The time you put in at the gym will be worth it – you will see results. Now I’m not promising any quick fixes, I’m not promising significant weight loss or increased muscle mass. The fact is, you will get out of what you put into your time in the gym. But that’s only part of it, there are positive improvements to your body beyond the scale. Your heart is a muscle and by participating in regular exercise you are strengthening your heart. Strength training exercises increases bone density, which is important as we get older to prevent breaks and osteoporosis. Moving more improves your metabolism which helps you to more efficiently burn calories even at rest. As we age flexibility and range of motion can decrease, but through exercise you can improve your flexibility and range of motion, which again contributes to your ability to prevent injury. I don’t know anyone who can argue that these aren’t great benefits to exercise. Personal trainers will make sure that the time you put in is worth it. You’ll benefit from all the things you can’t see, but they will also help you to make improvements to the things you can see.

Exercise with a personal trainer gives you the biggest bang for your buck.

I hear it over and over again that personal training is too expensive. I understand when compared with a basic gym membership of $20 a month personal training costs seem extreme. However, by working with a trainer you are going to benefit from their expertise. Unlike group fitness, you will receive personalized workouts designed to meet your specific needs. The entire session is focused completely on you and your needs. But it extends beyond the sessions. Trainers provide you with exercise plans for the days you don’t meet with them, they provide nutritional advise, they provide regular accountability, they follow-up with you during the week to see how you are doing. So when you consider the price you pay for the ‘session’ also consider the benefits that you get throughout the week to keep you motivated and on track.

Let’s face it, will taking an hour out of your day really put you back that far? Consider all of the benefits exercise can give you. I’ve outlined a few, but I’m sure each of you reading this can think of your own benefits to exercise.

For this holiday season I’m offering 10% off of my personal training services. If you’re in the Lombard, Elmhurst or Glen Ellyn area I would love to talk with you about personal training and how it could have a positive impact on your life. Drop me a line and let’s set up a time to talk about your needs.

The Benefits of Working Out, Beyond the Physical Changes

Soon after moving to Lombard, IL my husband and I went to an event where a month membership to Patriot Boxing was one of the prizes. I was intrigued to say the least and dumped all of my tickets in that prize hoping to win. Sure enough, they called our number!

The first time I went to Patriot I ‘eased’ in with a Yoga Sculpt class. And when I say ‘eased,’ I should also clarify there was nothing easy about this class! It was very challenging but I loved every minute of it. Next I gave the boxing and five round classes a try and it wasn’t long before my husband and I were both signed up. Fast forward over a year later, we are still members, have added our children to the membership for their martial arts classes, and attended a number of special events hosted by Patriot.

The thing I love most about this gym is they ‘get it.’ Nick and Tracey get to know their members and truly treat them as part of the Patriot family. They are always offering a special challenge or event to bring people together. They aren’t just building a gym, they are changing lives and fostering relationships.

I asked a good friend of mine who is also a member to write about her Patriot experience. I think her title says it all…

Jab, Cross, I’m Hooked!

by Laura Johnson

Gyms are like bars. They can be fancy, worn down, gimmicky, cooperate cookie cutters, new age and natural, and meat-markets. Then there is my gym, Patriot Boxing and Fitness. It is the neighborhood bar of gyms, and my second home. It is still funny to say that I spend five hours or more per week in a boxing gym. Me: the girl who hates physical confrontation. If people get in a fight near me, I disappear and run away from the physical conflict. That is funny to think about because up to this point in my life I have always been a runner, and now I box with mitts, and punch and kick heavy bags. This has been my choice form of fitness for about a year, and I had no idea that this little boxing gym would become my Cheers.

When you begin a fitness journey in a public place you shine a light on yourself and your current state of physical being in front of a group of strangers. Strangers who are on their own fitness journey that you know nothing about, so your ignorance mixed with nerves can lead you to infer that they are looking at you and judging you. Is everyone looking at my love handles? How am I going to get through this after sitting at a desk too many days per week? Is that a parent of a student? Is that a former student of mine? Is the instructor going to be annoyed with me, since I am new? Why are these bags close together? Ahhhhh!

Once the class started, I had no time or energy to continue this negative self-talk. The class was a whirl wind of jumping jacks, burpees, punches, running, and strength. Half way through, when I thought about stopping for the day, I started to get a few combinations right and punching the bag released some of my frustration. When the class was over, I was exhausted, red-faced, and super sweaty; but I was amazed that my out of shape body could finish the class. I was hooked on throwing hooks to reach a healthier stronger me.

Patriot Boxing and Fitness provided the classes to help me tone- up, increase my speed, and overall level of physical health, but there was an added bonus of conditioning when my inner-self was strengthened as well. This happened due to my gift of gab, and my desire to connect with the people who were sweating next to me several hours per week. I started by looking for the resident gym rats because I felt like I was becoming one. I walked up to a woman who had awesome toned arms and chiseled legs of steel to give her a simple compliment on her strong physique. How could I not compliment her in person? Her hard work and dedication to physical fitness was evident, and I had noticed it right away. Secretly, for a few weeks, I quietly looked up to her for fitness inspiration. She was a great person to observe at the gym because you realize there are not short cuts to get results like that.

After I shared some well-deserved gym props with her, she gave me some too, and we began greeting each other regularly before class, sharing a sweaty smile of encouragement, and hanging after class to have a longer, more meaningful conversation. Fitness for her lives in the nucleus of her life, and I wasn’t surprised to find out that her whole family worked out at the gym, and it was truly her second home. We hit it off as moms who enjoy getting a high off of pushing ourselves in the gym. This was the first real fitness connection that I had made, and I am so glad to have her in my life supporting me on my fitness goals and in other areas of my life.

This inspired me to keep talking to people who ended up at a bag near me. Next, it was a young man who never missed a day at the gym, since he was involved in the gym’s winter weight loss challenge. He was smashing through his weight loss goals each week. I was drawn to his competitive spirit. He set a goal and wasn’t going to settle for second. After many short, choppy conversations and words of encouragement between the bags, I learned that he went to school near my first teaching position, and he knew some of my former students. (I also learned that my Patriot workouts were helping me keep up with the younger crowd.) By sharing a smile and a chat while sweating, I was able to connect with several others who beat on the bags around me, and I could write pages and pages about each and every one of them.

This unexpected domino effect of connection has led a unique mix of people, who would not have crossed paths outside of a gym, to become friends founded on fitness, and who are now walking, lunging, squatting, and doing mountain climbers on the path of lifelong wellness. We text each other to see who is coming to the gym, to make sure we all have our favorite bag to beat on during class. We laugh and push each other during class, and this makes many classes seem to fly. When the classes fly, we stay for a second class, lift weights together, or linger at the gym to catch up.

We also make time for each other outside of the gym with group outings, message boards, and thoughtful planning when it is time to celebrate life accomplishments or growing another year older. This group also doesn’t shy away from the tough stuff that we encounter: parenting, spouses, dating, money, work, divorce, illnesses, surgeries, getting older and working on other scars that didn’t heal quite right. We have gone from only using sweat therapy: boxing, lifting, and running to also sitting on a couch or around a table with each other to share, listen, advise, and strengthen each other from the inside out.

This has become a wellness community, a neighborhood “bar,” my Cheers where, “everybody knows your name,” and the fights are a sport, a healthy physical activity, and not a beer brawl. At Patriot Boxing and Fitness, I found people who now share a corner in the ring of life and support each other through out each round.

As you can see by Laura’s story, being a part of a gym can benefit your life in so many ways beyond your physical achievements. Don’t be intimidated by a gym, find one that treats you like family and you will always feel like home when you are there.

Not Just a Trainer, an Accountability Partner

In my blog ‘The Benefits of a Workout Partner and How to Find One,’ I touched on the importance of accountability over willpower. I’d like to dive a little deeper into the difference between the two and how as a personal trainer I use accountability to increase your confidence and ultimately strengthen your willpower.

Making Changes

When working with my clients we always start by talking about their goals: physical, nutritional and lifestyle. This information is essential to create a customized plan with unique and personal goals. And in creating their plan and goals we break things down into stages.

It’s important to have both short and long-term goals. The short-term goals may be for a week or a month and are the steps necessary to accomplish the long-term goals. They are the key to increasing confidence and willpower and create the accountability needed to sustain change. Let me give you an example of physical, nutritional and lifestyle:


Let’s say your goal is to reduce body fat from 32% to 25%. That’s not going to happen overnight and not something I would recommend measuring on a weekly basis, but rather every 4 to 6 weeks. Here’s why: measuring it weekly could create frustration by not seeing results and could result in a loss of willpower and desire to keep working towards the goal. However, part of achieving that goal will be to increase lean muscle mass and reducing fat.

So the client and I would work together to create goals that are based on increasing performance during the workout; perhaps increasing the number of repetitions, or increasing the amount of weight lifted. These are examples of short-term goals that can be easily achieved in progressing towards the ultimate goal of fat loss. Each time one of those short-term goals are accomplished, the client gains confidence in their ability to achieve the long-term goals and increases their commitment to the process. When committed to change, willpower grows and excuses for skipping workouts diminish.


The majority of clients that I have worked with have had a weight loss goal in mind. While exercise is an important component of weight loss, dietary modifications are also necessary. Unfortunately, even our toughest workouts can’t overcome continuous bad choices in the kitchen.

I try to encourage my clients to track their nutritional intake through any number of free apps like MyFitnessPal or LoseIt, but the fact is, some just aren’t interested in tracking portions and calories. I understand that and help them to create other goals that will help to make long-term dietary changes.

For example, let’s say you love sweets. The extra sugar and calories consumed by eating sweets is a factor in weight maintenance. Once again, this isn’t something that can change overnight. Making too drastic of dietary changes quickly puts too much pressure on willpower and not enough on establishing a pattern of sustainable dietary changes.

So we break it down first by evaluating the quantity of sweets consumed during the week. Once we have a handle on the amount, we can establish a goal of beginning to replace manufactured sweets with natural sweets because it’s no mystery that a piece of fruit is a better choice than a candy bar. Rather than setting a goal that the client is going to quit sweets all together, we establish a plan for manageable modifications. Maybe that means starting with replacing two items a week, maybe more. Using the approach of gradual modification allows the client to see that reducing sweets is possible. As the client gains confidence in their ability to make choices, we increase their goal because their willpower to resist manufactured sweets has been strengthened.

I would never ask a client to stop eating sweets cold turkey; this puts an enormous pressure on their willpower and each time they are exposed to sweets the temptation grows and the greater amount of pressure on their willpower. Eventually, the temptation wins, the client feels defeated, discouraged, and ashamed they weren’t able to stick with their goal. This isn’t helpful for anyone. Whereas the gradual change builds confidence, willpower and the ability to adopt long-term change.


I am a firm believer that if you are working towards improving health, you need to incorporate lifestyle changes beyond diet and exercise. My favorite example for a lifestyle change is creating a consistent bedtime and waking time. Our bodies crave routine and many of us rarely give our bodies the rest they need. I know both personally and through my clients that adopting a consistent sleeping pattern helps with energy levels, weight maintenance, and stress levels.

Establishing Accountability

So I know you’re probably thinking, ‘That’s all great, but as a client I might only meet with you once a week. It’s up to me to follow through on all of these goals.’

In part that is true, it is up to my client’s to commit to their goals, however, I know that no matter where you are in the process of achieving your long-term goals, you need support and accountability. Honestly, as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I need accountability. We all struggle with willpower from time to time so we need to be surrounded by those who want to build us up.

Throughout the week I check in with my clients. Whether it’s a text or sending an email with an article that could be helpful, I make sure to stay in contact. This helps my clients to know that I am there for them, opens the door for them to ask questions or admit their struggles, and further builds our trainer-client relationship.

If you are looking to make some changes, I would love the opportunity to speak with you. Drop me an email, and let’s set up a time to chat about your goals and how I can help you create a plan to achieve them.

Finding a Workout Partner Through FaceBook

As a personal trainer and group fitness instructor working out is an essential part of my life. But I realize that isn’t true for everyone.
Which is why I have asked some of my friends to share their stories about how working out has impacted their lives.

This story is near and dear to my heart. Jason is a great friend of mine and to see the positive changes that have resulted from him exercising is undoubtedly inspirational and proof that finding a workout partner or group can be the motivation you need.

Here’s Jason’s story…

Let me start at the beginning…my Mom died. That’s what woke me up. December 21, 2013 she left this place for another. She was 70. My mom struggled with her weight my entire life. She had high blood pressure and suffered her first stroke when she was 45. The day she passed I was 44, and 281 pounds. I knew I didn’t want the same path my mom walked so I had to change.

I challenged myself to lose weight. Shortly after, my dear friend Jenn, challenged me to join her team in a mud run. Challenge accepted, now to get busy. I stopped eating all of the things that I enjoyed. I worked out like a crazy person and stopped drinking altogether. In five months I lost a little over 20 pounds and I finished the run. I didn’t feel a lot different and I wasn’t losing weight at what I thought was an acceptable rate. I was flabby and unhappy, period.

I found my group on a Facebook post. A friend of a friend mentioned something about a new workout group he was in at a local gym and blah,blah,blah. Next day, I’m passing the gym and decide to check it out. Game changer.

The owner invited me to a free session and I loved it. Ever been in the gym and you think maybe you want to do a little chest workout, or just some cardio….man why am I even here? Me too. That doesn’t happen when you have group work.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, will push you to new levels like thinking you need to stop and looking to your right and seeing someone just like you busting their butt to make it happen. Same exercise, same time. Groups equal motivation and accountability.

If I am going to miss a session I have to write my name on the board and the date I am scheduled to miss. Otherwise, everyone in my group is calling or texting me as soon as the session ends….to make sure I’m o.k., and talk a lot of smack. This works.

When I started in January I set my goal weight at 240. I thought I would be happy there. Today, I’m a very handsome 227. Thank you very much.

I know my weight because we take measurements every two weeks. I don’t check the scale anymore, I don’t care what it says. I feel great. My last physical my Doctor chest bumped me! That’s what matters.

My group is like family. We help each other, we cheer for each other. We make others welcome. Everyone is awkward at first, but we have all been there. I know, without any doubt, I would never have gotten here without them.

Jason’s story is proof that having a partner or a group helps you to keep going when it gets hard.

Do you have a workout story of your own? I’d love to hear it! OR are you in need of finding your workout ‘home’? I’d love to help you do that. Drop me an email and let’s talk about your story or how we can begin your changed life story.
