Frequently Asked Questions
Am I required to sign a contract?
Answer: No, we do not require contracts. Many people have had a bad experience with a gym or fitness company concerning a contact. Our philosophy is, if we are doing a good job for our clients, we don’t need a contract for them to keep using our services.
Will I be sore after my workouts?
Answer: It depends on the fitness goal. In most cases, there will be a level of soreness, but there is no reason for the soreness to be excessive.
We do a thorough evaluation so as to have clear understanding of what our clients can and can’t handle, to make sure we start our clients at the proper fitness level.
Why aren’t your prices listed on your website?
Answer: We have found that most gyms and fitness companies are too limited in their package and pricing options. We have many options to choose from. To avoid confusion, we have found its best to meet a perspective client in person and get a better understanding of what their needs are, then narrow down what options work best for them.
Will I be working with the same trainer throughout my time training with Vimtrim?
Answer: Yes, we have an amazing staff of personal trainers. Vimtrim believes in taking care of its staff and offering competitive pay. We also strongly believe in treating our employees with respect and encouragement.
Most of our personal trainers stay with Vimtrim for more than 2 to 3 years, which is way above the industry standard. In the rare case a trainer leaves, we will assign you a new trainer and do everything we can to make it a smooth transition.
Am I required to put my “before and after” pictures on your website?
Answer: No, your privacy comes first. However, if you would like us to take your before and after picture, we can most certainly do that. No matter what you decide, achieving your health and fitness goal is what’s most important to us.
Is there a monthly membership fee?
Answer: No, there are no membership fees. Our locations are private studios by appointment only.
Do I have to purchase meal replacement shakes and/or diet pills from you to lose weight?
Answer: No! We do not believe drinking shakes and/or taking diet pills is an effective way to lose weight.
Fact: Whatever methodology you use to lose weight is what you will need to keep doing for the rest of your life to maintain the results. Taking pills and shakes for the rest of your life does not make sense! We believe lifestyle change is whats most effective.
What kind of diet will you put me on to lose weight?
Answer: We are not going to put you on a diet. Long term, dieting does not work. We believe in gradual lifestyle changes, over time, is what’s best for lasting results.
I want to workout with my spouse, but his/her goals and fitness level is different than mine, can we still workout together?
Answer: Yes, in most cases the trainer will be able to train both of you at the same time. The trainer will make sure to cater to each person’s fitness level and goals.
However, there are some cases where the trainer will recommend training separately until one or the other is in better condition. There are times when someone may need the one-on-one attention from the personal trainer before transitioning to group training.
Is it too late for me to start?
Answer: It’s never too late to start!
True story: We had a client at the age of 99 years old, her goal was to be able to stand up on her own for her 100th birthday. After 5 months of training, she was able to stand up on her own with no assistance of any kind. The owner Chris James was her trainer. He was there at her birthday party and he had the first dance. It was one of the proudest moments in both their lives.
This is a perfect example that it’s never too late!
