We are so proud to be new and different... And we also know that brings up questions!  If we didn't cover it here, please send us a message or call so we can assist in any way!

 

What is The V Trainer and how does this work?

We are a Virtual Personal Training program.  We are bringing the gym to your living room (or wherever you are)...trainer and all!  Our trainers call you on Skype where they are able to see you- as well as you seeing them in live time.

What is the V-Assess and V-Fit?

You tell us a little about you (previous injuries, medical history so we can know a little more).  We conduct a Mobility Assessment (V-Assess)- to see how your major joints (shoulders, hips and knees) move.  Then, the fitness assessment (V-Fit).  This gives us a baseline of where your current fitness level is (no judgement and the same test is re-tested after 8 sessions to show your progress and to allow us to tweak any programming needed.  We use face to face technology for all of your live sessions, and we are pretty big fans of Skype (it's free and wonderful!).  

Once we have your profile and assessment completed, the magic happens!  We fully customize the personal training program- from your Live Sessions down to your workouts on your own.  

 

There are other workouts besides the Live Sessions?

That's the recipe for our client's success!  Depending on your personal goals we will customize the days you're without your trainer to get you the results you're looking for!

 

Is Skype free? 

Yes!  There are paid options but please make sure to select the FREE download option!

You can download Skype by going here!

 

 What if I've never exercised?

You're in good hands!  Safety is our priority and we take extra care to make sure to customize all of your workouts to YOUR body.  The days you aren’t with your trainer you’ll refer to our App for your customized workouts with videos of movements.  We will be with you every step of the way! 



What comes with the program?

We take your goals to heart!  You will purchase your amount of Live Sessions and choose days and times that work for you.  You’ll set up your account with our App and will receive workouts for the upcoming week on the days you are on your own.



What equipment do I need?

You will need a set of resistance bands (you can purchase from us as well).  Beyond that, any equipment you have at home we will incorporate into your Live Sessions as well as the workouts on your own.  Have dust piling up on your elliptical?  It's time to finally use all the equipment you once had high hopes for and get the results you envisioned! 



How will the trainer be able to tell if I’m doing it right?

Live Sessions are just that... in real time!  Your trainer is able to guide you to set up your computer/tablet/phone in a way that they can see all your movements.  You will be able to see your trainer as they show you the movement from your computer/tablet/phone.  For the days you are without your trainer we include movement videos so you are able to check for proper form.



Will I need a special WiFi connection?

You will need high speed internet.  Depending on what device you use, you can hard-wire your internet cable to your computer/laptop.  For a tablet or phone you'll need high speed WiFi.  Please note any data that be used if you are out of range of a secured WiFi network. 

 

How long are the workouts?

The Live Sessions are 30 minutes.  The workouts on your own will vary between 30 and 60 minutes (and up to 1.5 hours).


I have a gym membership, will I ever use it?

If you want to incorporate gym equipment, we will create your programs to utilize the gym amenities (for instance, a swimming pool).  You will need minimal equipment with The V Trainer as we have created ordinary items from the household to use as resistance.


Is food coaching and support part of the program?

Nutrition is critical for a healthy lifestyle.  We have meal plans for guidance and also offer one-on-one V-Consults with our Registered Dietitian for an additional fee.
