What makes you different?
As a professional trainer we follow the company’s M.O.R.E. philosophy when it comes to designing programs and we do it with the end goal in mind. We provide routines that are safe, effective, and efficient. We guarantee your results and best of all, you get the effectiveness of an hour long workout in half the time.
What is your philosophy on training?
How quickly will I notice results?
Each person is different, but generally speaking, some results are immediate. You can lose a couple of pounds by the end of the week with appropriate nutritional control. Adding lean tissue may take a little longer. It may take 6-8 weeks although we’ve seen some gifted people pack it on in just a couple of weeks. We’ve even had clients report that they felt leaner even after just one workout. Your resting metabolism can also be increased relatively quickly. The idea is to get a little better in some way each workout
I am a woman. Will I get bulky muscles?
No, women don’t have the same hormonal ability to put on a large amount of muscle tissue. Although some increase in lean muscle tissue is critical to increasing metabolism, improving shape, and improving bone density – all important benefits of resistance exercise, specifically for women. Women may actually stand to gain more from resistance training than men. On average, women put on 4-5 lbs of lean tissue which can translate into a nice change of feminine body shape and a significant uptick in daily metabolism.
I am a man. Will I get bigger muscles?
Yes, if that is one of your goals. We can customize your routine to specifically target the maximum amount of muscle gain or angle the effort toward other adaptations,
Where do you train?
We train our clients in their homes, offices, or our home studio in Merrimac, MA.
How often will I train?
Our workouts are often performed 2-3 days per week with an appropriate amount of recovery days in between workout days. It is a myth that you need to spend hours 5-6 days per week in the gym. You’re trainer will strike a balance between the right amount of work for your personal maximum physical gain and cost for your budget.
Do you offer sport specific training?
What other special populations/areas do you work with?
Our trainers are experienced in the following areas:
•Lower back pain
•Thyroid and other Metabolic conditions
•Pre/post natal women
•Military, law, fire, and EMS personnel
•Adolescents (6 years and older)
•Athletes of all ages
Do I also have to do separate cardiovascular conditioning?
No, not unless you want to. Because M.O.R.E. training is a form of circuit training, your cardiovascular system and muscular systems are working simultaneously. This is the reason the workouts can be maximally effective, but performed in half the time. Your trainer will carefully prescribe your appropriate amount of exercise based on your initial consultation. Should you choose to do additional activity, you certainly can, and we will help you to incorporate it so as not to delve into overtraining or injury.
What do I need to bring to each training session?
Be sure to dress in a cool, comfortable fashion. Usually sneakers, shorts, and a t-shirt will do. We must be sure to mitigate heat production appropriately during exercise. Although some clients enjoy the feeling of working up a good sweat, it is not always desirable. Hot, humid, or rainy days may produce high heat production during exercise sometimes leading to light headedness or nausea. Be sure to dress cool!
What kind of equipment is used during a typical workout?
M.O.R.E. training involves circuit training using all tools available. A routine may be predominantly based on one tool with other exercises being incorporated through other modes such as cables, barbells, dumbbells, body weight, and manual resistance. All modes have pros and cons and each has its place dependent upon what the client prefers, their proficiency, and availability.
What is a typical personal training session like?
Appointments are scheduled for all workouts. Your trainer will meet you at your scheduled time and after greeting you, check to make sure you are feeling OK, and that there aren't any new issues since the last meeting. Afterwards, you will begin that day's routine. Many clients have their own home gyms. We can use your existing equipment or our trainers can bring what's needed. Your trainer will assist you through a workout, in a circuit fashion, coaching you every second of the way through each exercise. The workout should last approximately 35 minutes. At the end, if you'd like to ask your trainer questions or review your nutritional efforts, there should be a few minutes to do so before wrapping up.
Is there a nutritional component to your program?
Yes, you will get ongoing basic planning and support from your trainer and we have more detailed nutritional counselling services available as well.
What education, instruction, and experience do the trainers on staff have?
Cathy is a Certified Personal Trainer through NESTA, National Exercise and Sports Training Association, and a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and has undergone advanced continuing education well beyond the normal industry certification.
Is this something the trainers like to do and are passionate about or is it just something they are doing part time?
Yes, Cathy is a career professional personal trainer with experience, results, and references. You can be certain she is a true business woman delivering a quality personal training service.
Are records kept of your progress and body measurements?
Yes, we keep accurate records of your daily progress and any other pertinent information. We will be able to look back and see where you have come from and we do regular assessments on an ongoing basis.
Lastly, can you GUARANTEE RESULTS?
Yes, because our philosophy has been compiled from the best of many sources, we can happily say that if you follow our program, we can GUARANTEE your good results and a great experience.
