Frequently asked questions
What exactly does an UNIFIT fitness professional do?
At UNIFIT GYM, our personal trainers are highly skilled and nationally certified, and have many roles when working with clients. Your personal trainer will serve as a coach, teacher and motivator. It is the personal trainer’s job to assess your current physical and mental state, establish very specific goals, design an individualized program, and do whatever it takes to keep you on track towards getting results.
During the fitness consultation, which lasts approximately 30 minutes, your personal trainer will gather as much information on your medical and exercise history as possible in order to create the best program for you. Next your trainer will establish realistic goals and discuss the strategies that will be used to accomplish them. Body fat testing, body girth measurements, flexibility, cardio, and strength testing may all be done during the consultation process.
The Fitness program’s success is based on the philosophy that each person has to have realistic goals, become educated, and gradually change eating habits. We will make phone calls or messege to keep you on track with your program. By the end of the nutritional consultation, you will know exactly what is required of you in order to achieve the goals that you have established.
The next time you meet with your trainer, you will start weight resistance and cardiovascular training. Your trainer will demonstrate proper form and technique and explain to you the fundamentals behind the specific training that you are focusing on. Although high intensity training is the ultimate goal, you can expect to take it easy for the first couple of sessions to allow your body to adjust to the new style of training.Your personal trainer will teach you about cardiovascular training. Depending on your program, your trainer will set you up on cardio goals for each week. There will be a complete cardiovascular schedule for each week of the program. You will learn about high and low intensity cardio and how these styles of training fit into your specific program.
What type of qualification do the Personal Trainers have?
All of the UNIFIT GYM trainers have at least one nationally recognized and independently accredited Personal Trainer certification, such as from ACSM, ACE, NASM, NSCA. All of these certifying bodies require continuing education in order maintain certifications. In addition, all of our trainers complete an in-house training program that is based on current guidelines within the industry and on current research.
What types of results can I expect to achieve in working with you?
RESULT & OUTCOME. That’s why you hire us as professionals. In fact we’re so confident in our coaching services that we guarantee your results 100% .
How are you different from a trainer at a chain gym like Fitness First or Chi Fitness ?
First and foremost, we are a private gym & training studio that is privately owned – huge crowds are not a part of UNFIT GYM. We have no alliances to huge corporate gyms, and we work for our clients only.
Unfortunately, many corporate trainers are paid bonuses and are under a lot of pressure to sell clients supplements and other things they may not need.
Also, many corporate gyms don’t require trainers to have a top certification (LHPT recommends that you always ask trainers what certifications they hold!)
Their job is to keep you coming in, whether you’re making progress or not.
What’s included in your personal training programs?
All our fitness programs include unlimited gym access, nutritional plan, an initial testing and evaluation, resistance training and cardiovascular training program design, a review of flexibility, and coaching to work through the process – ensuring your success.
What equipment is available at UNIFIT GYM?
We literally have 30’s of pieces of equipment. From mutiple cardio machines such as treadmills, spining bicycle, cross trainers & rowers, to a wide variety of resistance machines for every body part. We boast the best free weights areas, full of olympic bars, muti racks, benches, squat racks, bumper plates and lots of dumbbells. The heaviest dumbbell is 60 kg.
I have a health issue, can i still exercise?

How often should I exercise?
