5 Answers | Asked by toni slowinski on Oct 06, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 07, 2013

Hi Toni, I have a client who, for a multitude of reasons, has gained well over 100 lbs while training with me. Hardly a showcase for me as a personal trainer :-( Progress - not at all. I am hanging on to what I got. But that's exactly it. While he is not even close to where I would like him...

Small Group Training - Wish You Knew?

5 Answers | Asked by Megan Senger on Sep 28, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 04, 2013

Hi Megan, I like Alana's distinction between a small group class and personal training for more than one person. I have tried the latter, and it's just not for me. Even if clients are very similar in abilities, you end up with just the lowest common denominator. I am even paranoid in group cla...

3 Answers | Asked by Shane Mclean on Oct 04, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 04, 2013

Hi Shane, is this 'getting arthritis' your own diagnosis? Is it another way of saying that your right shoulder is beginning to hurt more and more often? You are a trainer; so I won't bore you with the 'get the doctor to check it out'. You know that yourself. What I am wondering is whether you ...

Confused by my results? Trainers please weigh in?

12 Answers | Asked by s brown on Sep 29, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 02, 2013

Hi there, if I had to choose between 4 inches off my waist and 1 pound off the scale, I'd take the 4 inches any day. If you had had a body composition before you started, you would have seen even more numbers heading in the right direction. As everybody else here has already stated, you sh...

women's only or unisex bootcamp?

9 Answers | Asked by Yasir A. on Oct 01, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 01, 2013

Hi Yasir, personally, I would be more attracted by a self defense/fitness hybrid because it is unique. Bootcamps by now are getting more popular but this is a novel idea that I had not seen before. I think it is a great idea to set yourself apart. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

9 Answers | Asked by Judy kroll on Sep 29, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 30, 2013

Hello Judy, I hope that PT stands for physical therapist and not personal trainer as it is beyond our scope to diagnose problems and prescribe exercises for it. If you have done the exercises correctly and as often as recommended, then there should be some improvement at this point in time. If...
