IS THIS FOR ME?


Individualized Personal Training in Halifax, NS

MAINSTREAM GYMS

  • If you are self motivated and confident enough to set up equipment, design, track, and progress your own routine; like to be in large social group settings, have lots of time on your hands, and enjoy the loud music and high energy atmosphere. This is also a cheaper solution to fitness.

VS

ONE UP FITNESS

  • If you don’t have a lot of spare time, are a working professional, value quality and individualized attention, prefer a quiet and controlled environment, if you value your time and results and appreciate a safe and focused approach to reaching your goals.

HOW MUCH TIME WILL IT TAKE TO FEEL RESULTS?


30 minute sessions with a personal trainer in Halifax, NS

MAINSTREAM GYMS

  • 1-2.5 hours, 3-5 times per week (3 to 12.5 hours per week)
  • 3 to 6 weeks of consistent training on your own. You may never reach your potential if you are uncertain of how to track or accurately measure and progress your workout regime.

VS

ONE UP FITNESS

  • Max of two, 30 minutes sessions per week (60 minutes per week total)
  • As little as 3 sessions to start to notice small changes, with continued improvements in strength and conditioning for upwards of 2 to 4 years until reaching and maintaining your biological and genetic potential.

IS IT A SAFE APPROACH?

MAINSTREAM GYMS

  • Without a trainer there are many things that can go wrong. If you don’t have formal knowledge (beyond what you watched the ‘experts’ say or do on Youtube) you leave a lot to risk.
  • With a trainer, safety varies and depends on their formal education, experience and exercise protocol. Some protocols require movements, tools and equipment that are inappropriate for the individual. This can lead to injuries of wear and tear, or in a worse case, cause tears or strained soft tissue injuries that will require weeks of therapy to overcome.
  • Generaly NOT evidence based.

VS

ONE UP FITNESS

  • Evidence based approach lead by Kinesiologist certified in proper exercise techniques and progressions.
  • Innovative technology and equipment ensures safety when working to the challenging level of effort that is required for optimal results.
  • Slow motion protocol insures no excessive forces on joints significantly minimizing risk of injury
  • Fully supervised one on one attention leaves very little room for error.

DOES IT WORK?


Evidence Based Personal Training in Halifax, NS

MAINSTREAM GYMS

  • Self training will always result in a lesser quality of exercise therefore requiring you to do more and spend longer to get similar or not as great results.
  • Almost never evidence-based and protocols are usually beased on popular trends and marketing gimmicks.
  • Fitness can certainly be achieved but it requires significant dedication, motivation, and consistency to sustain throughout your lifetime.

VS

ONE UP FITNESS

  • Evidence based: We observed the most agreed upon approaches for safe and effective exercise protocols from scientific literature and avoid making recommendations based on trends or opinions.
  • Quality trumps quantity every time. Think optimal results in the least amount of time that is necessary.
  • Notice improvements in a short period of time assuming workouts are consistent.

WHAT IS THE ENVIRONMENT LIKE?


OneUp Fitness Environment Halifax, NS

MAINSTREAM GYMS

  • Often loud, distracting, and intimidating for those who don’t like to be in a crowd.
  • Generally feel like a ‘number’ rather than a client.
  • Often feels like a ‘social club’ rather than a place to productively exercise.
  • Have to wait for equipment.
  • Often hard to find someone to help you set up equipment or get advice on how to properly exercise unless you are working specifically with a trainer.
  • Group classes don’t give indivdial attention and are often ‘skill based’. It will take you a number of classes to learn the techniques before you get to the level of effort that is required for great results.

VS

ONE UP FITNESS

  • Small, quiet, climate controlled, and comfortable environment.
  • Innovative and unique resistance equipment makes for an optimal workout.
  • Generally only 1 or 2 other sessions being performed in the studio at once.
  • Distractions free: No mirrors, music, TV’s, or other flashy things to draw your attention.
  • Part of a small community of like-minded individuals.
