PERSONAL TRAINING FAQs 

We understand that choosing a Personal Trainer is a big commitment, both parties have to be able to work together with confidence and trust in order for there to be success. There also needs to be a little humour along the way but accountability at the same time. 
 
Below we have listed some questions about our Personal Training and Exercise Class services that could be on your mind waiting to be answered. If we have still not answered you questions please go to our contact us with your questions. 
What is a personal trainer and how can using a personal trainer achieve your goal? 
Whether you want to lose weight, train for a event or simply get fit, using a Impact Training personal trainer will help you achieve your goals, without causing you pain or injury. A good personal trainer has a background in health & fitness and more often than not has specialised in one or two areas of the industry. At Impact Training the trainers also have a background in kinesiology. 
 
In addition, a good personal trainer will be a good listener, a great motivator and someone that you can build a trusting relationship with. So, if your goal is to get into your wedding dress or your summer dress in a few months' time, we take that anxiety on board and make sure your exercise plan is goal-orientated and achievable. 
 
How do your training plans work? 
After an initial consultation, we arrange a first session where we assess your fitness, taking measurements, weight and blood pressure. We look at your posture and discuss nutrition, we then do an hour's workout. Following this, we go away and tailor-make a programme to fit your needs and budget. And we find out what are your likes and dislikes. 
 
Do you charge for advice over the phone or email? 
No Impact Training gives free advice so that you'll always say on top and informed of your training. So pop us an email, drop us a text or give us a call and we will get back to you 
I work out but I'm not getting results! Why not? 
The idea of a workout is not to over-exert yourself by doing too much without knowing your own body, because if your body and mind are not ready for the result, you won't get one. 
 
People often go to the gym and do fast running or short training, they don't care about training intensity, time, repetition and body positioning, they don't take care about their nutrition after going to the gym and think they can eat whatever they like and end up putting on some extra weight. 
 
Make sure while you are training you are on the right track, that you aren't pushing yourself too hard or not at all, take care of your posture in your daily routine, when you're walking, sitting or standing, you will get results in a short period of time and stay fit forever. 
 
What happens if I can't make an appointment? 
It is standard for a client to give a client to give their trainer at least 24 hours notice of cancellation, so that the session has the potential to be reallocated. Failure to give this period of notice would incur the cost of the session, unless there's a valid reason. 
 
What equipment do I need? 
The only equipment a client would need is suitable clothing and footwear. Clothes that restrict movement may not be suitable for the range of activity within a session. The trainer will provide all other equipment for the session. 
 
Which areas does Impact Training cover? 
Generally we cover Preston, Longridge, Penwortham, Garstang, Leyland, Kirkham, Bamber Bridge, Longton, Lostock Hall & Broughton 
 
We do also cover out of Preston for an extra cost of £10 per session. Blackburn, Bolton, Fleetwood & Chorley. 
 
I don't like working out in the gym, what alternative do I have? 
A lot of people don’t like working out in the gym for varying reasons. In these circumstances Impact Training specialises in doing personal training session in the comfort of the clients' home. A lot of sessions take place within the clients' local outdoor environment; sessions can take place in the local park for example.
