I get asked a lot: How many hours a week do I need to see results?
The answer can vary... a lot.
There are many factors involved, such as:
The recommendations below are not necessarily the number of sessions you should have with a coach in a given week, but the amount of work needed to see reasonable results.
HOW TO GET 'RESULTS'
You can get great results with an online coach, in-person coach or with a group class, or simply following a training plan but not every option is suitable for everyone.
Online training or 'Remote Coaching' as I like to call it, is suitable for an individual who is comfortable going to the gym, or wants train at home on their own. It is defiantly a more cost effective option, but I would encourage most beginners to consider getting a coach for the short term so that you know for sure that you are moving correctly,
You will also require a level of self motivation to be successful with remote coaching.
My remote coaching options do include video analysis and video demonstrations to help make sure that you are doing all the movements correctly and tracking to ensure that your progress is monitored.
If you are confident with exercise then you should only need to see your coach for coaching sessions and accountability, this can make remote coaching a very cost-effective way of getting a personalised programme.
If you require more accountability, motivation or technique specific training sessions then you may prefer an in-person coach, or a combination of the two.
