Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of in home personal training?
There are endless benefits of in home personal training! Here are our top four benefits to working with an in home personal trainer:
#1 Time Efficiency
With an in home personal trainer, you no longer have to schedule in gym time, not to mention travel time to and from the gym. This can save you a lot of time, especially in the morning before work, which is primetime for many clients to get in their workouts. Imagine waking up and heading downstairs for your workout with your trainer, and afterwards heading back upstairs to shower and get ready for work. Having the gym come to you allows you to spend your time more efficiently by eliminating drive time and not to mention the hustle and bustle at the gym during prime hours. With an in home personal trainer, it is much easier to make time for a workout.
Convenience ties into the first benefit of in home personal training, time efficiency. In home training can be convenient for those not only looking to eliminate travel time and be more efficient with their time, but also for those who have physical limitations and have a hard time traveling to a gym. In home personal training is ideal for many people and can also specifically benefit stay at home moms, elderly people, people with physical limitations, and people with injuries who have a difficult time getting to the gym.
The environment at the gym can be intimidating for many people, especially for those who are new to fitness, have physical limitations, or are uncomfortable in their own skin. One of the greatest things about having a trainer come to your home is that it is just you and your trainer. There aren’t other people watching you workout, which can make some people very uncomfortable and hesitant to give a workout their all in fear of what they may look like.
#4 Undivided Attention
Working one-on-one with an in-home personal trainer, allows your trainer to give you undivided and focused attention, free of distractions and interruptions, which are common in a gym environment. Receiving your trainer’s sole attention means greater communication which can lead to better cueing, form, and overall direction. Why travel to a large gym when you can have your trainer come to your home and receive their undivided attention?!
I’m interested in your in home personal training services? How do I get started?
Great question! At DeHenzel Training Systems, we utilize a seamless 3-step process when beginning with a new client.
Step 1 – Phone Consultation
The first step to getting started is to contact DeHenzel Training Systems either by phone or email. After initial contact, we will schedule a time for a phone consultation. During the phone consultation, we will ask you about your personal training goals, exercise and health history, and any contraindication you may have to exercise. This is a great time for us to get to know a little bit about you before the in-person consultation, which we will schedule at the end of our phone consultation.
Step 2 – In-Person Consultation
Our in-person consultation is where we come to your home, building or office gym, to meet with you. We will discuss in greater depth and ask you to fill out some light paper work regarding your training goals, exercise and health history, and any physical limits you may have with exercise. During this time, we will also discuss your training preferences, scheduling availability, and answer any other questions or concerns you may in regards to in home personal training. At the end of our in-person consultation, based on your training goals, preferences and physical needs, we will work to set you up with one of our experienced personal trainers and schedule the initial training session.
Step 3 – Initial Training Session
The initial training session is the last step in our 3-step process to getting you started with a personal trainer. During the initial training session, you will have a chance to get to know the trainer, experience the workout and sample our in home personal services. After the initial training session, you will be able to directly communicate with your trainer and schedule your upcoming sessions. If for some rare reason you do not enjoy your session with the trainer, we will schedule another initial session with a new trainer.
I’ve never worked with a personal trainer before. What can I expect during the first session?
Congratulations on taking a big step and hiring a trainer! During the first session, your trainer will take you through a warmup, workout, and cooldown with assisted stretching, where they will observe the way you negotiate certain exercises and movements, handle various loads of resistance, and identify areas of strengths and weaknesses. Your trainer will communicate in depth with you to make sure they are pushing your appropriately, effectively and most importantly, safely. After the initial workout, your trainer will have a better idea how to program and customize your workout to match your individual goals.
How is in home personal training different from working with a trainer at a gym?
Excellent question! In home personal training is different from training in a gym for a variety of reasons. With in home personal training, you benefit from the convenience and luxury of having the gym come to you. Travel time is eliminated to and from the gym, leaving you with more time for yourself and your family. Our experienced and certified personal trainers will utilize the space in your home to act like a gym. They will also bring necessary exercise equipment such as free weights, medicine balls, resistance bands, and boxing gloves/mitts.
I don’t want to work out in my home. Is there somewhere else where we can work out?
No problem! Workouts can take place in the comfort of your own home, outside, or in your workplace gym.
How much space do I need in my home for a workout?
There is no space too small or big for an in home session. Our trainers are very skilled and creative and are able to work in any size space. As long as there is a clear area, with some space to move around, a workout is possible!
I don’t have any exercise equipment; do I need to buy some?
No problem! Our trainers will bring all the equipment necessary to your home, including but not limited to: free weights, medicine balls, resistance bands, boxing gloves/mitts, and a yoga mat. If you do have equipment that you would like to incorporate, just let your trainer know, and they will happily make use of your equipment.

Is it ok if my kids hangout while we workout?
Yes, of course! Many of our clients take care of their children from home and our trainers are accustomed to children being present during the session.
Are your personal trainers certified?
Yes! Our personal trainers are certified through widely recognized personal training institutes and accreditations. Some of our trainers have degrees in exercise science and kinesiology. All of our trainers actively participate in our on-going mentoring process where they are able to grow and build their professional skills. Most importantly, our trainers are very passionate about fitness and helping people change their lives, one workout at a time.
How do you select and hire your personal trainers?
Great question! We are very particular about who we hire and carefully select our trainers out of many qualified candidates. It is extremely important to DeHenzel Training Systems that our trainers best represent our core values: professionalism, integrity, honesty, passion and education. Each trainer goes through three rounds of interviews: a phone interview, an in-person interview, and a practical interview in which we observe the trainer working with a practice client. Once we hire a trainer, we work with each individual through ongoing mentoring sessions where we sharpen and mold their skills. We also place a large emphasis on continuing education. We only hire the best personal trainers to join our team!
Can you help me with an exercise regimine to accommodate my in home personal training?
Yes! We encourage you to workout on days that you are not working with your trainer. Our trainers will provide you with workouts to do on your own time and hold you accountable.
I have severe arthritis in my knees, can I still workout?
Yes, of course! Many of our clients have contraindications to exercise and are still able to workout safely and effectively. DeHenzel Training Systems will communicate with your doctor or physical therapist to find what exercise program best suits your needs. Regardless of your limitations, exercise is possible!
Is my fitness level high enough to work with a personal trainer?
It is a misconception that you must be in top shape to hire a personal trainer. At DeHenzel Training Systems, we welcome and work with clients of all fitness levels. Our trainers will customize your workouts to fit your needs and will appropriately progress your workouts as your fitness level increases.
