Frequently Asked Questions about 29 Again gym in Timonium
What can I expect during my first visit to 29 Again Custom Fitness?
First, our attorneys insist you start with some quick legal CYA mumbo-jumbo. :-)
At most gyms, you’d jump right into exercising. But not here …
We move on to your Right Start Body Blueprint: We discuss your medical history, exercise history and personal goals, then guide you through the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and Musculo-Skeletal Assessment (MSA).
Finally, we’ll take a few pictures of you for postural analysis. Then we combine all that data to determine exactly what exercises we need to start you with and how we’ll progress through your membership.
Is this 'personal training'?
How much is a 'package'?
So is this a membership club like MAC, Brick Bodies, Merritt, Athletic Club, etc.?
What membership plan is best for me?
Why 3-Month or 12-Month Memberships?
Suppose I have to miss a session?
Wait, what about sick days and vacations?
Are there any incentives for referring clients to you?
When can I expect to see or feel results?
Should I be exercising the days I am not training with you?
That depends on your current fitness level and your membership with us. Many members find that two sessions with us per week and an active lifestyle are all they need to reach their fitness goals.
Do you offer nutritional counseling or support?
Yes. I’m a Certified Nutrition Coach (since 2010) through Precision Nutrition, the industry’s largest and most respected certification agency.
Should I be taking any supplements?
Nearly everyone should be taking a krill oil supplement. Krill oil, even more than regular fish oil, helps you burn fat by:
- Turning on lipolytic (fat burning) genes.
- Turning off lipogenic (fat storage) genes.
- Enhancing the production of leptin, an appetite hormone that reduces hunger and increases your metabolic rate.
- Increasing insulin sensitivity. The better you control your insulin levels, the more fat you’ll lose.
- Increasing fat-free muscle mass to keep you “toned.”
Keeping your cell membranes flexible and more responsive to circulating insulin. This decreases fat storage in fat cells.
- Controlling your insulin response. When your blood sugar rises less quickly, you’re less likely to store sugar as fat.
Will my training sessions consist of the same exercises every time?
No. We use a system we call Undulating Periodization with an A/B Split. You can find out more in my chapter in the Amazon best-seller, The Fad-Free Fitness Formula.
