Here are answers to some common questions that we get around here. If yours isn't answered, go to the contact us page and drop us a line. We will get back to you promptly!
Where do the sessions take place?
Face-2-Face sessions are limited to Indiana, PA and the surrounding area. Trainer Tony is willing to come to you, whether that be your home, or preferred gym. Currently we are recommending Sobek Fitness. This is a very well-equipped gym with an open floor plan, and the owners are always making improvements.
What is a "High-Octane" session?
I (Trainer Tony) design these sessions to be highly effective and extremely efficient. Of course each one will be tailored to your individual needs, limitations, etc. What this means for you is more results in less time! I realize that many of us don't have a lot of time each day to dedicate to an exercise routine. So, I like to get you in and before you know it you can get on with your day. When you see the results, you'll feel like your cheating the system.
How many days per week do you honestly recommend?
I feel that four days of resistance training per week is ideal for most people. This allows us to adequately stimulate the muscle to evoke an adaptive response. It also allows for adequate muscle recovery between workouts. Myself, I prefer to train six days per week. But, I am one of those sickos that actually enjoy pumping the iron.
Do you provide workouts for the days that I don't have sessions with Trainer Tony?
Of course! If you are on the Two Sessions per Week program I will gladly give you workouts for two other days per week. If you are on Three Sessions per Week program I will happily give you a workout for another day that week.
What if I don't use all my sessions for that week?
You use them, or you lose them. I want to help people achieve results, and get the body that they've always wanted. This takes a commitment. If you can't commit, and miss sessions, cancel sessions, etc. I consider it a "Fat Tax" and you will not be reimbursed for those missed sessions.
Should I also be doing Cardio?
Absolutely! How much depends on your current fitness goals. At minimum for general health & wellness we should be doing one 30 minute session three times per week. For maximum fat loss I recommend an hour per day (sometimes more) up to seven days per week.
Should I stretch or foam roll?
Definitely! I like to do both, especially if there are structural imbalances that correcting. But, if you have to choose one I would go with a good foam-rolling routine. That will help keep the muscles loose, break-up scar tissue, improve recovery, and eliminate toxins like lactic acid.
