  • Do I need to be fit and healthy already?

    When starting Personal Training with us you will need to complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire  (PARQ). This allows us to understand more about your current health status and if external input from other health professionals is required.

    In terms of fitness, we assess all our new client’s fitness levels and through testing will understand your baseline fitness status. We will create a training programme to suit your current fitness levels and together create realistic and challenging goals.

  • Who do you commonly see?

    We see so many different women, all with different goals and the age range varies. Women between the ages of 25 and 45 seem to more commonly come to us, however we do have clients younger and older.

    We believe all women are entitled to a personal trainer. If you don’t feel too old, we won’t think you’re too old!

  • Can you help me with my diet?

    Yes. Where we think it is needed we can give you a dietary plan or just some direction as to what foods to eat.

  • I am recovering from an injury, can I still have training?

    We work closely with our physiotherapists, massage therapists and Pilates instructors which means we can find the best service for each client. If you need a physiotherapy assessment, we can refer you to one of our therapists who will help us to understand your limitations whilst training and build up your strength again.

    If you are recovering from a sports injury, we can also refer you for a sports massage which will help the healing process and allow you to make the most of our sessions.

    Depending on your package, you will be able to swap 1, 2 or 4 personal training sessions per month for physio, massage or Pilates with no extra charge. To find out more about our extra services, visit http://iamfierce.co.uk/health-services/

Personal Training sessions

  • What do I receive in a package?

    Our Personal Training packages have been created to improve your health and fitness with a whole body approach. We offer multiple packages including Bronze, Silver and Gold. In the packages you are able to choose from a selection of Personal Training, Physiotherapy, Pilates and Massage. Included in your package you receive unlimited access to our fitness classes, nutrition plans, recipes and much more!

    A fitness programme includes in session and home workouts suited to your fitness levels, lifestyle and goals. On your first session we assess your current status through numerous exercises and work together to develop a tailored programme. Depending on your goals and ability there will be a mixture of body weight exercises, weights and cardiovascular machines.

  • What will happen during an assessment/ consultation?

    During your initial consultation, we will spend some time getting to know you personally as well as your goals and current fitness ability.

    You will fill in a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire  (PARQ) which allows us to tailor your sessions to best suit you and your goals.

  • Do you provide additional support?

    We appreciate that this is a journey and you may need additional guidance outside of your session times. We provide additional support via phone, email and through our Facebook Fierce Fit groups.

  • How do I sign up?

    To join our Fierce Fit movement and go to our Join now http://iamfierce.co.uk/packages/ and select Personal Training.

  • Can I attend both one to one sessions and group classes?

    Of course. You can attend any sessions, as long as they don’t run at the same time- obviously!

  • Can my friend come?

    As well as  private 1:1 sessions, we also offer ‘bring a friend sessions’- these would be 1:2. To find out more, visit our Personal Training page.

    http://iamfierce.co.uk/personal-training-packages/ or come and talk to us at a free consultation.

  • How do I swap one of my Personal Training sessions for another Health Service?

    Depending on your package, you will be able to swap 1, 2 or 4 Personal Training sessions a month for another health service – either physiotherapy, massage or Pilates.

    This is done through your Personal Trainer as they will be able to discuss and advise what is best for your personal progress and refer you directly to the appropriate member of staff.

    Talk to your personal trainer if you are interested in swapping a session and they will be able to help you further.

  • Can I attend if I’m pregnant or are there separate sessions for pregnancy?

    We want you and your baby to be the healthiest you can be. We will train you as long as we can safely, adapting your sessions to meet your physical needs.  

    Once you have had your baby, you will need a month resting period after which we can restart your sessions. Again, these will be tailored to your needs as your body has been through an amazing but demanding journey and will need time and encouragement to get back it’s strength.

    Our personal trainers are always looking for ways to improve themselves and their service, and are hoping to train further in pregnancy and postnatal fitness.

  • I want to get fit for my wedding, can you help me?

    We work towards your goals – whatever they may be. If you want to get fit for an event such as your wedding, or work on a specific area, our Personal Training packages will help you to achieve those goals.

    We can provide a tailored plan of personal training, classes and nutrition to make sure you are feeling your best on your big day and beyond! All we ask is that you work with us to make the most out of your sessions.

Fitness classes

  • What classes do you offer?

    We offer a range of group sessions and classes, take a look at our class timetable for the full list: http://iamfierce.co.uk/fitness-classes/

  • How do I sign up?

    To join our Fierce Fit movement and go to our Join now http://iamfierce.co.uk/packages/ and select Fitness Classes.

  • Do you provide bootcamps?

    We offer a range of packages of 1 : 1 sessions and classes that will help you achieve your goals. Although we don’t provide a ‘bootcamp’ where you can stay and complete an intense week long programme, we do hold a range of fitness classes and personal training times.

    If you are interested in a more intense programme, we would recommend our gold package as it includes 12 Personal Training sessions, unlimited classes and a home workout and nutrition plan every month. We find this is more successful as it promotes an on going overall lifestyle that enables you to feel healthy, confident and happy.

    Remember that health and fitness is a long term lifestyle, not a quick fix. Whilst an intensive programme can be beneficial to see results faster, it should be part of a continuous development of your health and wellbeing rather than a short term fix.

Booking and cancellations

  • Can I book a session last minute?

    From your first booking we will need to contact you to confirm session / class times. Therefore we need a minimum of 24 hours to get you onto your first class / session.

    From then on, if there are any sessions available last minute there will be no problem with booking onto one of them. Availability may be limited but it’s always worth a try!

  • Can I cancel a personal training session/ class?

    We operate a 24 hour cancellation policy. There should be no problem for you to cancel one of your sessions within the 24 hours prior, but if you cancel a personal training session or class with less than 24 notice it will count as one of your sessions / classes.

  • Can I cancel my package?

    If you would like to cancel your package please do so via logging in to Paypal and cancelling your subscription.

    We would recommend comfortable, well fitted trainers, sports leggings or sports pants, t-shirts or sports vests, and a well fitted sports bra is always important.

    Yes our Fierce Fit facilities are fully DDA compliant. We have level access, disabled toileting facilities and hoisting facilities.

  • Do you have private consultation areas?

    Yes, our facilities have private 1:1 clinic rooms where we are able to offer your initial consultation and use if we need to have additional meetings in a private setting outside of gym sessions. Our initial consultation takes between 30-60 minutes where we get to know more about you and your goals. We then explain how we work as Fierce Fit and see which of our trainers you are best suited to.

  • Do you have private gym space?

    Our gym space is by appointment only. The Personal Training sessions depending on which one you select will be 1:1/2:1 with one of our Trainers. Other trainers and their clients can at times share the gym space.

  • Do you provide home visits?

    No. Our city centre locations are easily accessible and we provide all the equipment you will need. Our experiences have shown that people gain a more effective work out and commit to their programme long term when making an appointment with us and experiencing a gym setting. There are often fewer distractions from the postman at the door to the cat climbing on your yoga mat! We do however, provide you with home workouts in your packages.
