Frequently asked questions

Whether you are new to the gym or experienced and just looking to change things up, working with a Personal Trainer can be hugely rewarding.

Maybe you have a goal in mind which you have tried to achieve on your own but have failed to yield results. Maybe you lack confidence in the gym and are not sure what you are doing. Maybe you have seen an exercise on social media, but it just does not feel quite right when you perform it, or maybe you just lack motivation and need to be held accountable.

That is where we come in. Our highly educated personal trainers will remove any confusion you may have and put you on the right path to achieving your goals. They will tailor your workouts to your specific needs and help to build your confidence to enable you to exercise on your own, knowing you are performing the exercises correctly and safely. They will be there to push and motivate you, remind you of the goal in mind when things get tough and hold you accountable.

  • An initial in-depth consultation
  • A bespoke, personalised programme
  • Nutrition and lifestyle guidance
  • Free monthly Boditrax scan*
  • On-going support, motivation, and accountability
  • And of course, regular one-hour sessions with your chosen PT

The Consultation

We recommend having a good think about your goals prior to attending the consultation. Expect to answer a series of questions based on your health and lifestyle. It is important to be honest here as we are simply trying to figure out what is safe for you to do and how to personalise your programme based on your needs. We may also take this time to set you up on our Boditrax machine (if you are not already) and do an initial scan, so that you have a clear starting point and data to reflect on, so that you can see how far you have come. There may also be one or two documents for you to sign if you choose to have Personal Training.

Your Personalised Programme

From the information gathered in your consultation, your Personal Trainer will create a fun and challenging programme that is tailored specifically to your needs. This program will be designed with your goal in mind and can be adapted at any point if you or your trainer feels something is not working. Whilst it is important to choose exercises that are going to help you achieve your goal, it is equally important that you enjoy the workouts programmed, so make sure you take the time in your consultation to express if there are any exercises you really enjoy or really do not enjoy.

Nutrition and lifestyle guidance

Yes, that one hour in the gym with your trainer is particularly important but let us not forget about the 23 hours outside of that session. Your Personal Trainer will be able to talk to you about your current lifestyle and nutritional habits and give you some pointers to keep you on track.

Free Monthly Boditrax scan

As mentioned in the consultation section, you will have an initial free scan at the start of your journey but we are also going to throw in a free scan every month from there that you continue with your Personal Training (package dependent), so that you and your trainer can see the progress you are making and use that data to influence any adjustments that might be needed to your program to ensure you reach your goal.

On-going support

Those 23 hours outside of your session with your PT are extremely important for you to reach your goals. What if you have a burning question that you are just not sure of the answer, or you are feeling a little demotivated to do that run that is in your program and you just need that extra push. Having direct contact to your Personal Trainer allows them to give you that on-going support you may need to keep you on track.

One to one session

This is not like your typical induction, so come prepared to do some work. This is one hour with your chosen PT where they will take you through one of the sessions, they have programmed for you. They will be using this time to keep a fine eye on your form to make sure you are performing every exercise properly, keeping a log of your performance and pushing you to the best of your ability.

We have a variety of different Personal Trainers here at University of Nottingham Sport to choose from, which means you are sure to find someone suitable for your needs. You can find information on our trainers below and contact them directly.

It is important to find the right Personal Trainer for you. They all have different teaching styles, different personalities, and strengths in different areas when it comes to fitness. We recommend having a read of each instructor's profile and seeing which one you think will be best suited to you and your goals.

  • Their experience: Personal Trainers have different interests, and while many PTs help clients achieve a range of goals, you may find some Personal Trainers have more experience helping clients in certain areas. Our PTs state their interests on their profiles, but nothing beats a conversation when understanding which PT is best suited.
  • Credentials and specialties: Some Personal Trainers have additional qualifications and expertise in particular areas, such as weightlifting, pre and post-natal, and rehabilitation. Similar to above, you may want to work with a PT who has more expertise in the area you want to focus on. You can find which qualifications our PTs have on their profiles.
  • Personality: Finding a PT that you get on well with can make a huge difference in how your find your sessions. Consider what kind of training style you would benefit from and find a Personal Trainer who fits with this.
  • Gender: Some people are more comfortable with a female Personal Trainer, while others would prefer a male PT.

Our PTs are always happy to have an initial chat before signing a new client, so use this time to ask questions and make sure they are the right fit.

You can purchase a range of Personal Training packages depending on how many sessions you would like. Purchasing more than one session in one go allows you to build a more comprehensive plan, but also provides better value for money. Sessions for groups of two people are also available.
