Private Personal Training

Why should you consider private personal training?

Do you have issues with:

  • Staying motivated
  • Being consistent
  • Pushing yourself
  • Bad eating habits
  • Not knowing what to do

The truth is that working out isn’t easy. Staying consistent is even harder.

Hiring someone to provide private personal training may be the most effective way to get the results you desire.

ReDefineRVA offers a private personal training experience in our 3,200 square foot studio, split across two floors.

Normally when you hire a private personal trainer, especially at the big box gyms, you’re going to end up having a “private personal training” experience surrounded by well over a hundred other people.

I used to train at a Gold’s Gym, and it was always extremely difficult to find space to train my personal training clients.

During busy hours, I would have to find a small corner somewhere in the gym, and create whatever kind of workout I could for the day. It wouldn’t allow me to properly train my clients like I would in a more private personal training location.

Once my business partners and I started ReDefineRVA, we want to offer a private personal training experience that was actually private.

At any one time, our studio will only have a maximum of 20 clients in the studio training at one time.

A maximum of six in our semi-private personal training sessions downstairs.

One of the main reasons clients come to our studio is because of the comfort and privacy they receive while training.

We strive to offer a private personal training experience different than any other location in Richmond, VA.

Our semi-private setting combined with the benefits of a semi-private atmosphere.

Although you’ll be in a session with up to five other clients, you’ll have your very own workout program catered to your goals and needs. One of our experienced trainers will help guide you through every one of of your workouts.

We track your measurements in order to keep you on track with your progress, as well as offer a nutrition accountability program to make sure you’re eating healthy nutritious foods.

Focus on Fat Loss

Fat loss, not weight loss, is important when getting in shape.

The problem is that they have it all wrong.

When you lose weight, you lose both muscle and fat. Although you may drop the numbers on the scale faster this way, you won’t look the way you want to look.

The only thing that keeps your metabolism going, even at rest, is lean muscle tissue.

If all you do is focus on the numbers on the scale, you’re going to lose a lot of the muscle tissue you’ve previously worked so hard to build up.

The better way to go about it is through a proper fat loss program.

This means a combination of good nutrition, progressive resistance training, and effective cardio.


Dropping body fat percentage is a longer process…

Although fat loss can take a little longer to achieve in the grand scheme of things, the end result is a body that you truly desire.

Everybody has muscle, but it is covered up by fat. Now how much fat there is depends on your body fat percentage.

The lower the body fat percentage, the more your lean muscle will show through.

The majority of people out there do not have enough lean muscle tissue on their body to be able to waste it by losing weight too quickly.

You should focus on building lean muscle tissue, while trying to burn off stubborn fat.

The way you can achieve these results is through a progressive strength training program.

When you lift weights, you create tiny tears in the muscle fibers of the muscles you work.

After a period of recovery, your body will repair the muscle, and build more lean muscle on top of that. It does this so that same weight you lifted does not cause the same damage as before.

If you lifted 10 pounds on week one, you would cause some muscle damage. After the muscles have recovered, that 10 pounds won’t have the same effect on your muscles. So you may need to adjust the sets and reps, or increase the weight. This way your body keeps getting stronger, and building more lean muscle tissue.

This is where most people fail on their own. They go to the gym, do the same thing every workout, and never really progress their workouts. This is why many people hit plateaus, and can’t seem to continue to see results.

This is where a personal trainer comes into play. They can create a custom workout for you, based on your goals, and adjust workouts as you get stronger and more fit. This will greatly improve your chances for healthy fat loss.


Focus on fat loss and you will be much happier 🙂

Losing weight quickly can be a very exciting achievement. You feel like you’ve made it, and figured out the recipe.

What you don’t realize is that you’ve lost precious muscle tissue. Once you lose muscle tissue your metabolism starts to drop, no matter how much you work out.

So as soon as you stop working out as much, or performing as much cardio, the weight will come back on.

You need to preserve your lean muscle tissue, focus on fat loss, and avoid trying to lost weight too quickly.

General weight loss recommendations will tell you 1-2 pounds per week is a healthy rate of weight loss. However, the heavier you are to start, the faster it will come off in the beginning. It’s not unreasonable to see multiple pounds of weight loss each week at the beginning.

If you combine proper strength training, with your cardio and nutrition protocol, you can lose weight while retaining as much lean muscle tissue as possible.

Once you’ve dropped a decent amount of weight, you should focus more on building lean muscle tissue, and getting rid of that stubborn fat.

The fat loss will come a slower rate than pure numbers on the scale, but a small change in body fat percentage makes a big change in the way you look.


In conclusion:

Don’t focus too much on the scale. Instead you should focus on fat loss and your total body fat percentage.
