Here’s some answers to questions you may have, if you’re wanting more information or have other questions feel free to fill out the below form or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you.
What gym do you work out of? Can you come to my gym?
I Work out of Goodlife Preston, Contact me to discuss Comfit Fitness going to your home gym. Comfit also runs sessions and group classes outside in the park, in your own home as well as online.
Why should I choose you? What are the benefits of a Personal Trainer?
There are so many reasons why a Personal Trainer is essential, whether your goals are weight loss-based, sports-driven or for athletic purposes.
What will I gain from training with ComFit Fitness?
One of the primary reasons that someone should have a Personal Trainer is that they are trained in teaching others how to exercise. And while exercise in itself is only a part of fitness, with nutrition and lifestyle playing an essential role in the overall picture if you don’t get exercise right then you will never achieve your goals.
The importance of education when exercising is important for two primary reasons:
1) If you don’t know which exercises are most effective for the goals you have, you are unlikely to achieve those goals. For example, if your goal is to build core strength but you spend all your time on cardio exercises, then you are unlikely to hit your goal.
2) Education when performing exercises is essential in reducing the risk of injury. Many people are seriously injured by performing exercises they have not received training for, and this can impact their health and fitness for a long time. Having someone trained in how to execute certain tasks will greatly reduce the level of risk and increase the effectiveness of your fitness routine.
Will Comfit help me with my form and technique?
Having Comfit fitness beside you to demonstrate the correct posture and technique is invaluable. Comfit fitness will ensure you are performing exercises correctly and efficiently, in order to maximise results. If your form when exercising is not correct, then you are at increased risk of injury as well as not achieving your goals (nothing kills motivation more than 10 weeks of prescribed bed rest!)
Will Comfit help With my Unique Requirements?
Everybody is different, and that means everyone’s abilities and requirements are different when it comes to exercise. This could be anything from having an old injury that requires special exercises to having a phobia that may impact on where or how you workout.
For example, if you have an old knee injury that required surgery, but since then you haven’t done anything to rebuild the muscles or improve mobility, then you are going to need different exercises and goals than an athlete who is training to run a marathon. This is where CF Trainers experience can make a huge difference to your training program.
Will Comfit help me Set Realistic Goals?
Everyone wants to achieve their goals straight away, whether they be weight loss, cheese grater abs or Hulk-like strength. But these are not always achievable, and if you don’t hit them, then you may be discouraged and backslide.
CF will not only help you set realistic goals that you will be able to achieve – if you put in the effort, of course – but they will also be able to keep you on track to hit those goals. For example, if your goal is to achieve a ‘bikini body’ for summer, it’s not just about doing 100 crunches a day for a month to work your abs. It’s about altering your diet to eat the correct foods, mixing cardio and weights to work the right muscles, and setting a timeframe in which this can be achieved.
Can Comfit help With Specific Goals, Such As Training For An Event?
As well as helping their clients set realistic goals, CF trainers are the perfect tool to help you achieve a specific goal. This is ideal for those who are training for a specific event, or need to achieve a certain level of fitness before they are able to do something they really want.
For example, if you have a bucket list with ‘Skydiving’ on it but are over the maximum weight, then hiring a Personal Trainer to assist with helping you lose weight is a great start to achieving this goal. Or if your goal is to be able to run a marathon in six months, then hiring a Personal Trainer to put you on the right track could be all you need to complete a marathon.

No Wasted Time = Maximum Results
There are two types of people who go to the gym:
1) Those who wander in, spend 10 minutes on one machine and then drift slowly over to another, before half-heartedly trying bicep curls for five reps and then walking out.
2) Those who have a plan in mind, and hit the machines with a purpose. They generally have a set amount of reps they do in sets of two or three, and they’ll know exactly what they’re doing on each machine.
It’s fairly obvious that the first group will not be achieving their fitness goals unless they get some help and have someone to direct them, so if you know that you’re one of those people then you should be enlisting the help of Comfit Fitness.
Can Comfit can help you with mindset and nutrition as well?
Comfit believes that it is not just what you do for fitness that makes the biggest difference, you are what you eat and it is said to make 80% of the difference where the training aspect only counts for 20%. Mindset is, if not the most important over anything you are doing. Without a strong foundation and healthy mindset you don’t have the right building blocks to be become the best version of yourself.
Comfit Fitness has experience with various mental health issues with Qualifications in NLP and TLT and has worked with several health professionals in this field. It has long been known that physical exercise can help with mental health issues such as depression, and that it is a recommended part of treatment by many medical health professionals. Having CF to help with your exercise plan when you suffer from mental health problems can help with motivation, with choosing the right exercises to release the most endorphins, and also just to have another shoulder to lean on.
Which leads us to our next point…
They’re An Unofficial Therapist
Let’s be honest, most of the time when exercising with your Personal Trainer you will be telling them about your week, how work is going, and what’s wrong with your life at the time. This is normal!
CF Fitness is there to help with your fitness goals, yes, but they’re also there to help improve your overall wellbeing. They care about how stressed you are, because that will impact how motivated you are in your sessions. They care if you’re unhappy in a relationship, as this could result in eating unhealthily.
There are myriad ways in which having a Personal Trainer can be like having an unofficial therapist.
Can Comfit Fitness help change bad habits?
It can take weeks to form good habits, and even longer to break bad ones – and trying to do it on your own is hard work. Having a CF Trainer is like having a good angel on your shoulder encouraging you in the right direction. They can help to argue with the bad angel in your head, and keep you on track to achieve your fitness goals.
Do we do Personalised Training Plans?
There are always going to be some exercises that you enjoy more than others, beyond simple capability. For example, just because you can physically do burpees doesn’t mean that you always want to, but you might really like doing squat jumps and sit ups instead.
A CF Trainer will be able to tailor your training plan to suit you and what you enjoy, as well as encourage you to do the exercises that are best to achieve your goals.
As well as this, there are always going to be some days when the last thing you feel like doing is a hard workout, and so having a CF Trainer means that they can tailor your exercise for that day to both accommodate your mood while still making the session helpful.
Can Comfit Fitness fit Into my Schedule?
Regardless of whether the only time you have available to train is at a ridiculously early hour before work, or on your lunch break, or mid-afternoon before the kids come home from school – a CF Trainer is one of the most versatile people in terms of hours. They understand that different people have different availabilities, and so they will tailor appointment times to suit you.
Is there an Increased Flexibility For Location?
Not everyone enjoys the atmosphere of a crowded gym, or having to wait for the machine you want to use to become available. The benefit of having a Personal Trainer is that you aren’t limited to working out where equipment is available – not only will your Comfit fitness have equipment that they can bring with them, but you can also choose the location in which you exercise.
Whether it’s in the comfort of your own home or in your neighbourhood park, with Comfit Fitness you have the flexibility to workout wherever suits you best.
I am quite fit and know what I am doing, will ComFit Fitness trainers challenge me?
Are you getting bored with your fitness routine? Have you progressed beyond the exercises you know and have plateaued in your fitness? A CF Trainer is what you need to take you to the next level, and continuously challenge your abilities.
Don’t think you can lift that medicine ball?
Positive you won’t fit back into your favourite dress?
Doubt you’ll be able to compete in a charity run next year?
A Personal Trainer is your life coach, nutrition guide and encourager all in one, and without them your fitness goals are that much harder to achieve. So what are you waiting for?
Can Comfit Fitness come and run private group fitness sessions at my work or house?
Yes, comfit has done and still runs weekly corporate training for various corporate clients such as Spotlight, Chemist warehouse.
What if I don’t have or want a gym membership?
Not a problem at all – Comfit fitness can organise single entry passes for you to train in the gym if the gym is more your flavour. In addition to this, Comfit Fitness offers In home training and local park training also.
