Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be successful and reach my goal if I hire a personal trainer?
Prior to your first session, you will need to complete a health pre-screening form and a waiver. If you mark “yes” to the select questions on the PAR-Q+ form, you will also be required to have your Doctor complete a PARmed-x form for you. These forms are available at the QSWC Customer Service Desk. Bring these forms with you to your first session.

What should I do before my first session?
Ultimately, that is up to you. However, a personal trainer will help you set appropriate goals, and knows the milestones you should expect on the journey to achieving those goals. Your personal trainer will help you stay motivated, on track, and provide you with all
the tools you need to reach your goal!

What will happen during my first session?
Your trainer will go through a questionnaire to get to know you better and complete an initial orientation. Your full personalized training will begin at your second session.

What should I bring & wear to my personal training session?
You should come ready to exercise! That means good, comfortable gym shoes (indoor shoes please) and clothing you can move freely and comfortably in. You can bring water in a closed container (no glass bottles please) and most importantly, a can-do attitude!

 We look forward to working with you!
