FAQ

Do I need experience?

No experience is required, movements will be explained thoroughly. Also, any movement can be modified for your skill level.

Am I strong enough to start?

Sure! All movements can be modified, weights are optional depending on your strength and can be altered.

I have no cardio is your program the right one for me?

Everyone has to start somewhere. The interval and cross training methods Dillon uses help build your strength while seamlessly and naturally building your endurance – and before you know it you will have cardio!

What are the benefits of a personal trainer vs. group classes?

Group classes can be lots of fun but having one on one sessions really allows us to build workouts for your personal goals in order to ensure you’re not just getting a great workout but also the results you want in your target area.

Are there any supplements I should be taking during my training?

Supplements are not mandatory but they do help you gain results quicker. Dillon personally takes protein post workout, as well as vitamins that help stimulate lean muscle growth and optimal digestion. All the proteins and vitamins are from a company called itWorks.  More information on supplements can be provided before your training begins.

Should I eat before or after a workout? If so, what should (or shouldn't) I be eating?

Breakfast is a MUST whether you’re working out mid-day or early morning. Prior to workouts carbs and fats are recommend. Those two macronutrients help give our body energy and stamina for the workout. Post workout carbs and protein are recommended. They help with muscle recovery and growth (yes carbs again), however stay away from fats, even healthy fats after workout for they slow down the muscle growth process.

If you aren’t sure what food consist of what nutrients Dillon will be happy to help you with this prior to your training sessions.

Do you train people to lose weight or to build muscle or both?

BOTH! There will be different workouts and/or modifications made depending on each individuals goal. Group classes are also tailored based on each individual and his goals by adjusting weights, distances and reps.

I'm self conscious about my body - will my personal training happen within a ``safe space`` where I can feel comfortable?

Absolutely! Creating a comfortable environment for anyone and everyone who wants to optimize their health with better physical fitness was #1 goal for building Flambeaux CrossFit.

What is your coaching style? Are you going to yell at me?

I am whatever kind of coach YOU need me to be to motivate you. It may take a session or two for us to figure out what drives you but we will find it together and from there we will keep you motivated! As a coach I have to teach all types of personalities therefore I have to remain versatile with my coaching technique. So whether you need me to pep talk you, yell, or both, we’ll find what drives you. I will always push you to be your best and achieve proud physical fitness.
