What kind of results can I expect?
It honestly depends primarily on how bad you want to achieve your goals and how hard you are willing to work. Our personal training programs will allow you to get the most out of your fitness and nutrition.
Other important factors are age, gender, attitude, and what you learn from us and how much you apply it to your lifestyle after you leave our hands. The clients that have been most successful are those that apply these 3 major principles: Positive Attitude, Consistency, and Specific Goals.
On average, most clients lose approximately 1/2 – 1 pound of body fat (not scale weight) per week and often will lose 5-15 pounds in a 10 -12 week period. (Everybody is different)
Don’t take my word for it though… be sure to also check out our success stories page to hear how others have benefited from our programs.
How do I know which program is right for me?
It all depends… first, you need to know what your goals are… then look at the different programs we offer and see if you see one that’s a good match. Each client is unique and we will customize a program to meet YOUR goals and needs. Check out the different personal training programs now

How often should I meet with a personal trainer?
This still depends upon your goals, how quickly you want to achieve them, your schedule and time available to exercise, and your budget… but when considering the cost, be sure to remember that this is your health and there is nothing on earth that is more important… because without it you have nothing.
On average, most clients do best when they meet with a personal trainer 3-4 times per week… less than that many people will slack off and not get nearly as much out of it. Here are a few things to keep in mind when determining how often you’ll meet with your trainer…
1. How fast do you want to achieve your goal and see results?
The more frequently you meet with your trainer the faster you’ll see results and achieve your goals and there are several reasons for this… consistency, accountability, motivation, guidance, you’ll work much harder with your trainer than on your own, etc.
2. How much experience with exercise do you have and how much do you really know?
While many people have exercised before, many for years… but do you really know it all? It’s not likely… we spend years and years studying and learning to know what we know and our primary focus is on helping and teaching you. Think about it… if you don’t know how to fix your computer… Are you going to try to figure it out yourself or have someone help you? Why leave your fitness results to chance? Most people just spin their wheels trying to figure it out and end up wasting time and getting frustrated. Our Personal Trainers use the MOST Effective exercise strategies to get your results FAST!
Many of our clients have openly expressed to me that they have joined gyms in the past and started going for a month or so then never returned. Why? #1 reason was that they didn’t have to go if they didn’t want to even though they know they should. Our surveys indicated the exact opposite response… That our current/past clients actually ENJOY coming because they achieve their desired results, love the variety of training, appreciate personalized instruction and the private studio, and to top it off have FUN!
Do I need to have equipment if I am going to be working with a trainer in my home?
Yes, it does help if you have a universal station, free weights, and some cardio equipment. However, we do transport some portable items to your house that is included in the in-home rate. As we all know, there is no better investment than the one we make in our own health. With that in mind, we recommend scheduling a visit to Fitness 4 Home and contacting our Fitness Expert Bob Lachniet (pronounced Lock-Neat) at (480) 838-0555 who can also provide expert guidance to help you design a cost-effective home gym so that you can maximize your results!
Are all of your personal trainers certified? Insured?
Yes, all of our personal trainers have a combination of experience and/or certifications, and/or degrees, we carry a comprehensive insurance policy, and we have both male and female personal trainers available. We will match you with the best trainer that fits your needs.
What areas do you service?
Tempe, Scottsdale, Awatukee, Phoenix, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and just about everywhere in the Phoenix Metro area.

Isn’t personal training expensive?
It really isn’t when you put it in perspective. First of all, it’s interesting what all of us spend our money on. I invite you to take a look at your budget and I guarantee you will find something that is either frivolous or wasteful. Such being the case, why in the world would you skimp on your own health & well-being?
Doctors, Dentists, Accountants, Attorneys, Financial Advisors, etc. are all very expensive but when it makes sense to use them it saves us time, money, and we pay them for their expertise.
Personal Training is exactly in the same category and without one’s health you have nothing. What always amazes me is that people will spend tens of thousands of dollars on cars, gadgets, Plasma TV’s, eating out, extravagant vacations, partying, cable TV, expensive tickets to concerts & sporting events, etc., etc. and then actually hesitate when it comes to investing in their own health and improving the quality of their daily life and long term health.
