Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I have to be fit before I start?

Absolutely not.

Training with us is essentially a fast-track towards your goals, and the sooner you get started the better.

We’ll make sure that you’re worked hard when you’re training with us, but not too hard. We’ll ease you in gently and everything you do will be controlled and tailored to your current levels of fitness and ability.

 

Q. Will you help me with my diet?

Of course we will.

When you sign up with us you’ll receive our nutrition e-book, which will tell you everything you’ll ever need to know about nutrition.

From there we’ll work with you in an ongoing basis to make sure you’re comfortable with what you’re doing food-wise and that you understand why you’re doing it.

You’ll have the opportunity to raise your hand for help ‘behind the scenes’ every week in our weekly review, and we’re always on hand to help with any random questions (or meltdowns).

 

Q. I’ve never been in a gym before, is that okay?

Sure! You’ve gotta start somewhere, right?

We’ve trained tonnes of people who have never before set foot in a gym, and it’s never a problem. You may be fit from engaging in sporting activities, running or you may have been on the couch for decades.

Regardless, our coaches are experienced enough to cater to just about anyone. We actually consider taking people from having never been in a gym before to doing extraordinary things as one of our specialities.

 

Q. I’ve been training for a while and I’m pretty fit/strong already, but I feel like I need a bit more direction/structure/expertise to push on to the next level.

Do you train people like me?

Indeed we do.

Some of our members have trained with us for as long as 5 years now and are extremely physically capable. We believe that regardless of your current ability levels (whether ‘good’ or ‘not so good’) our programming and coaching can help you improve.

Maybe it’s your technique that needs cleaned up/refined, or you’re in decent shape but just can’t push yourself at a high intensity consistently. Or maybe you feel like you can’t ‘go heavy’ because you don’t always have a spotter. Or you’re just not too sure how best to structure your training.

Yeah, we’ve got you covered.

 

Q. I’m an athlete and I’m looking to improve my performance, is that something you guys could help with?

As much as it’s not our ‘main thang’, athlete development is something we take seriously and very much enjoy.

We’ve trained international level footballers, champion MMA fighters (including a UFC star), Thai boxers & grapplers, downhill mountain bikers, basketballers, and a load more.

We specialise in helping people move better, whilst getting stronger, fitter, leaner and more confident…

What athlete wouldn’t benefit from that?!

 

Q. I really like the look of what you guys do but I don’t want to commit until I’ve experienced training with you.

Can I do a trial period?

Yes, you can.

Our 28 Day Kickstart is a great way for you to dip your toes in the RSF waters before deciding on whether to stick around with us longer-term. We run this year-round and can take on new faces on just about any given day (depending on availability) so get in touch and let us know when you’d like to kick-off your Kickstart.

 

Q. How much do you charge?

Our 28 Day Kickstart is a one-off fee of £99, and the rest of our programmes are charged monthly; based on a daily rate.

We don’t charge ‘per session’, because we endeavour to support our members as much as we can (or as much as they need) outside of their training, as well.

Team Training is £3.20 per day (£100 per month).

Small Group Personal Training is £5 per day (£150 per month).

1-to-1 Coaching starts at £5 per day (£150 per month).

 

Q. I want to get into bodybuilding, is that something you guys could help with?

As much as we (most likely) could help you, we reckon you’d be best off going to a bodybuilding-specific gym. There’s quite a few in and around the Glasgow area and we’d be happy to recommend one nearby you if you get in touch and ask us to.

 

Q. I like the look of your gym but I’m very shy and I’m not sure if I’ll fit in.

Do you do introductory sessions to help people familiarise themselves with the gym, the coaches and perhaps even other members before they start?

We do indeed.

Before you start training, we like to get you in for a little orientation session. This is basically just a means for you to come in, have a look around, chat with us and get comfortable. We’ll also go through some easy movements with you so as we know how best to approach your training when you start.

 

Q. I’ve got an injury that’s been holding me back for a while and I’m a little apprehensive about exercising because of it.

Can you guys work around injuries?

The short answer is: yes. But the safer answer is: it depends.

Everyone has little niggles and pre-existing issues that bother them and, of course, we can tailor programmes/workouts to ensure that everyone is safe, but the extent of your injury will dictate our ability to work around it.

The last thing we’d want to do is aggravate your injury and make it worse; so we’d invite you in for an orientation session, have a look at you moving and make a judgement call based on how you felt during it. It’d essentially be a fact-finding mission to establish what you would and wouldn’t be able to do.

If you’re really concerned, it’d be worth having a chat with your doctor and/or physio about it and perhaps have them liaise with us prior to you starting. The more information we have the more adept we’ll be at helping you.

What we will say though is that, in our experience, people can generally do a lot more than they had expected to, whilst working around their injury/niggles.

Do you have a question for us that we haven’t answered? Or would you like to know more/for us to elaborate on one of our answers?

Get in touch at info@rsfimprove.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
