Frequently asked questions
How do I know if Personal Training is right for me?
Almost everyone can benefit from personal training in some way, however the best way to find out more is to book in for a free coonsultation. At the consultation we can talk through how training works and I can answer any questions you may have. Simply fill in the form on the contact page and I will be in touch ASAP to get you booked in.
If I buy a pack of 1-1 personal training sessions do I have to train at the same time and day each week?
All 1-1 personal training clients are encourgaged to chose time slots that they can stick to each week, for those looking for peak times this is a must. If you occassioanlly need to move I will obviously be as flexible as possible and try to fit you in at another time.
I am going on holiday for a few weeks, can I defer my sessions?
Short answer, YES! When you buy a pack of 5 or 10 1-1 personal training sessions they are yours to use as and when you wish. I would always recommend staying consistent and doing at least 1 or 2 sessions per week, otherwise you won't see good results. That said, we all have work commitments and may need to miss a week every now and then, and that's not a problem.
I have bought a block of 6 Small Group Training sessions with a few friends, I am away next week but my friends still want to train. Do I lose that sessions or can I catch up and have a 1-1 session instead?
Short answer, you would lose the session. BUT please read on!
I am looking to lose weight for a big event in 3 months times, how long will it take me?
This is a very frequently asked question that there is not an easy answer for. Obviously the more time you give yourself the better. If you leave it too late you will likely end up on a fad diet, losing weight in an unsustainable way.
I have an injury, can I still sign up for Personal Training?
Most likely, Yes!
I am considering having a Sports Massage but have never had one before, do they hurt?
A Sports Massage is a great way of alleviating the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. They can be great for anyone from an elite athelte, a busy office worker to a stay at home mum.
When I buy a package of Personal Training do I get help and advice between sessions?
YES! When you buy a pack of 5 or more Personal Training/Small Group Training sessions you automatically get the Lana Jane Health & Fitness Nutrition Guide. You will also be provided with workout programs to do inbetween sessions, these are personalised so will vary between each individual. As well as you can always email, call or text between sessions to get extra advice if you need it!
What is your cancellation policy for training sessions, massage and nutrition appointments?
For cancellations of any training sessions with less than12 hours notice you will be charged the full price of that session.
I am interested in getting an individualised menu plan with details of exactly what I should eat (including weights of food) each day, do you offer this?
As a personal trainer with specific nutrition and sports nutrition training/degree I can give individualised nutrition advice. However I cannot and do not offer individualised menu plan with details of exactly what I should eat (including weights of food) each day.
Would you come to my home or to my local Park for personal training?
The majority of clients take up personal training in Raynes Park at SW20 Training Zone, this is a small, private, friendly training studio where only clients with trainers can exercise (it is not open to the general public). The studio offers most of the same equipment as a gym so provides a great environment for all fitness levels and abilities.
Which areas do you cover?
I work mainly from SW20 Training Zone in Raynes Park, but I also cover New malden and Wimbledon and Southfields.
Do you train pre & postnatal ladies?
YES! I have trained many ladies throughout pregnancy and after birth - it is such a rewarding and exciting journey to share with a client. Providing you have medical clearance to exercise there is no reason that you can't engage in some form of activity. There are large bodies of evidence to suggest exercising during pregancy can be very beneficial to both baby and mother (and maybe even partner too)! The type of exercise and the intensity of exercise will be very individual, dependant on previous exercise experience as well as numerous other individual factors.
