What kinds of exercises can couples easily do at home in addition to their personal training sessions?

  • Partner Planks: Face each other in plank position, adding high fives with alternating hands for a challenge.
  • Squat Holds and Dips: One partner squats against a wall while the other performs tricep dips using their partner's knees.

How long does it typically take for couples to see results with a personal trainer?

The timeframe for couples to see results with a personal trainer can vary based on starting fitness levels, consistency with training and nutrition, specific goals, and how well a personalized program is followed. Most couples notice improvement within 4 to 6 weeks of regular, consistent training sessions. Initial results may include increased energy levels, better sleep quality, improved strength and endurance, and possibly changes in body composition.

More significant and visible results, like substantial weight loss, muscle gain, or dramatic performance improvements, typically take longer—often 3 to 6 months of dedicated effort. Progress is not always linear and can vary. Setting realistic goals and maintaining open communication with the personal trainer for ongoing adjustments and support are important for both of your sustained progress and satisfaction with the training process.

How many times a week should a couple do personal training?

The frequency of personal training sessions for a couple can vary depending on their fitness goals, availability, budget, and individual preferences. Typically, couples might engage in personal training sessions anywhere from 1 to 3 times per week.

Once a Week: This frequency might work for couples with busy schedules. It allows for regular check-ins and guidance from a personal trainer.

Twice a Week: Couples looking to accelerate their progress or who have specific fitness goals may attend twice-weekly sessions. This allows for more focused training, addressing different aspects of fitness, and potentially faster results.

Three Times a Week: This is suitable for couples who are committed to their fitness goals, or those who want intensive guidance and accountability.

Couples should discuss their goals and preferences with their individual Thesis personal trainers to determine the frequency that’s best for their needs and lifestyle. Additionally, couples should ensure they're balancing their training with proper rest and recovery to avoid overtraining and injury.
