FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What makes CH+F different than other gyms?
A: At Cristiano Health + Fitness we believe that good vibes build an amazing tribe. At the studio we focus on creating a happy and supportive community, where training equates to a good time. We believe that by offering high quality programs in the form of personal training and group fitness, we create an experience that will keep you inspired and consistently moving towards your goals.
Q: Do I need to be in shape to attend classes?
Nope. We encourage those of you who are feeling a little lost when it comes to exercise to schedule a free movement screen and from there we guide you to the classes and training that is appropriate for your level of fitness. We have a very inclusive mentality at the gym and happily provide services that cater to those who are just beginning as well as to those who are looking to ramp it up.
Q: What do you mean when you talk about functional movement training?
A: In order to create a resilient body that moves with ease you must train patterns that are needed to perform everyday tasks. Using various forms of strength training, mobility work and smart cardio is how we create a body that is built to last. For example, tying your shoes, putting something away in the highest cupboard, getting up from the ground, carrying heavy grocery bags, lifting up your child or grandchild, getting yourself out of bed in the morning, and, not to be crass, but being able to sit on the toilet and stand back up after you’ve done your “business” is something that can become very challenging over time if we’re not practicing healthy i.e. functional movement patterns.
Q: I really want to lose weight, will joining CH+F help me do that?
A: We love helping clients feel comfortable in their skin! We believe that the best way to shed unwanted body fat is through nutrition along with some lifestyle changes. Although exercise is an important piece when it comes to obtaining your desired physique, eating a nutrient rich diet that supports hormonal balance is key when it comes to fat loss. Check out our monthly nutrition workshops, where you can learn about what to eat and why. Or book a one-on-one consultation with one of our nutritional practitioners.
Q: What do you mean by conditioning?
A: Conditioning incorporates several aspects of fitness. It focuses on having strength, cardio capacity, endurance and stamina. Conditioning training focuses on having strong cardio but also on being able to move quickly, change directions, move with added load and persist through fatigue.
Q: What should I expect from an obstacle race?
A: Obstacle races are designed to test your strength and cardio capacity. They are set up as runs with obstacles at various stages in the run. This will force you to be able to complete an exercise while you are fatigued. They are great for helping you become well rounded in your fitness. Most races range from 5-20 kilometers and feature 20+ obstacles. These events are great for team building and are a lot of fun to complete.
Q: I know what works for me for fitness and it looks like this…
A: Firstly, we are aware that that is not a question, but we hear that statement so often, we thought this would be a great way to address it. There are lots of different programs out there to achieve optimal health, but if a person is aware of everything that works for them but is still in a constant state of discontent with their body and health, we have to ask, IS what they believe works for them actually working for them? All we ask is that you come in with an open mind and an attitude to learn. We find that we are able to successfully teach our clients and broaden their horizons when they let us. This is how we help you, help yourself.
