’Do I have to train in a gym, or can I work out at home?’

It’s your choice, since Fred offers the possibility of either situation. This will be discussed in your initial consultation, and the best situation to meet your needs will be determined.

‘If I work out at home, do I need to buy specific equipment?’

Not all programs require equipment and it is possible to train at home without any. Upon your initial consultation, Fred will discuss his findings with you, and will recommend if, and which equipment, would enhance your training program. In most cases, if equipment is recommended, the cost will be relatively inexpensive.

‘I don’t really have the time to work out...’

To obtain results, you should commit to a minimum amount of time, so Fred will work with you to accommodate your needs. Together you will determine a realistic training schedule that fits both your personal and professional life. Remember...consistency is the key to success.

‘Can I work out with a friend, spouse or partner....’

Fred offers the possibility of small group training (2-5 people) which is a cost effective means to maximize your time, money and results while sharing common interests and goals with family and friends.

‘How much does it cost? ‘

The fees for training vary according to the length of the session (30, 45 or 60 minutes), as well as how often you would like to train. As well, different price structures exist for small group training (2-5 people). Fred will be happy to discuss fees for his Personal Training services with you, as well as billing procedures and the cancellation policy.

‘How do I begin?’
  To get started, contact Fred on this web site at He will reply to you directly, and together you will set up an appointment for a free consultation, and if desired, your first training session.

During your initial consultation, Fred will conduct a simple evaluation to determine your present fitness level and needs. After reviewing your medical history, current state of health, lifestyle and goals, Fred will make recommendations for improving your overall fitness, and will design an effective weight training, cardiovascular and flexibility program for you. It’s that simple...

Scientific research documents that clients are more successful in achieving their goals with individualized assessment and training. To establish a more comprehensive program, Fred recommends having a Fitness Assessment. This will allow you to more clearly identify specific health concerns, set goals and establish a baseline from which progress can be measured.
