I’m on a nine week program there and they’ve been so good to me. Plus they have donated more prizes to my son’s school fundraiser. Wonder if I could be double lucky and win again?
Anyway, I’d often driven past personal training studios and wonder what went on within.
If you’ve ever done the same, here’s the scoop on VisionPT:
The studio is like a small and very personal gym, with good equipment. You can visit anytime you like just to use the equipment.
You see your trainer at the gym either once or twice a week, or more if you choose.
Training sessions last just 30 mins, which includes a final five minute stretch with your trainer (the best bit!)
Each studio runs group training sessions too e.g. circuits, boxing, walks and running, all included in the costs.
I’ve mostly done weights sessions with my trainer, and do the cardio on my own. The couple of cardio sessions I have done with my trainer have been SO much harder than I usually do – sweat, sweat!
Vision training starts off with a lot of discussions about your body type, your food and exercise habits and your goals. The Vision software program crunches all your info and comes up with an eating plan and exercise program.
The VisionPT website has heaps of advice, plus lots of inspiration. Members have a large private section to use, with really useful videos and food planning areas that fill in all the macronutrients of the foods you enter.
I am AMAZED! No, let me be more emphatic about that… I am AMAZED at how little weight training one needs to do to change your shape and most importantly to make you feel amazingly good.
Two 25-minute sessions a week have made my body feel quite, quite different. I feel very strong, can feel all sorts of muscles and my wobbly legs and arms are becoming so much much less wobbly – hooray!
So far, so good. I can’t say the eating part has been easy, or simple. I’ve had to learn a lot and will share that in Part 2 of my Personal Training Adventures next week.
Have you used a personal training studio? Does its programs and philosophies sound similar? I’d really love to hear of your experiences?
