In today’s blog post we will ask Justina whether or not a personal training at home can be just as effective as training in the gym. Read what Justina has to say regarding this topic below.

The question still remains… Can it be just as effective as it is in the gym?

This is the question I hear the most. To be honest – there is no straight answer. It all depends on your goals, fitness level and space you have for training at home. However, in most cases I can say that home training can be just as effective training as training in the gym UNLESS you are advanced body builder or preparing for a competition or a tournament. Nevertheless, if you are not preparing for a competition or a tournament then we will need to use weights which you can find in gym. Alternatively, you can buy most of them online for a cheap price so it just depends on space you have at home.

Do clients need to buy any equipment before they start personal training?

My clients don’t need to buy any equipment for at least 4 weeks of training. I have my bag with all the equipment needed. The equipment includes – TRX, resistance bands, boxing kit and a lot more. Later, if I and my client agree – other equipment can be involved as well. If a client will want to buy additional equipment I can always consult them where to get the equipment from. It’s usually one set of dumbbells and a kettlebell.

How much space one needs for training at home?

For training at home you need the minimum length and width of yoga mat which is usually 2 m X 1 m. Having that in mind it’s very little. However, the more space you have the better. As a personal trainer for home I’m training my clients in their living room, bedroom, hallway or even dining room. It really depends where you have the most space.

Could you give few training routines for people who would love to train at home?

Sure thing, here are few examples:

Legs workout at home:

  • 20×4 squats
  • 20×4 lunges
  • ​20×4 side rises
  • ​20×4 standing kick back
  • 20×4 bridges

Upper body routine at home:

  • 10×3 press-ups
  • 10×3 dips (using chair or low table)
  • 10×3 shoulder walk
  • 10×3 rowing (using resistance band or water bottles/weights)
  • 10×3 bicep curls (using resistance bands or water bottles/weighs)
  • 10×3 shoulders press (using resistance bands or water bottles/weighs)

Full body HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout at home:

  • 10×3 burpees
  • 20×3 jumping lunges
  • 1 minute of high knees
  • 20×3 jump squats
  • 1 minute of jumping jacks

Could you give few training routines for people who would love to train at home?

I would recommend a mixture of all. If the weather is suitable I would recommend outdoor training, being a female personal trainer in London I can say that knowing London’s weather you never know so it’s good to have another option in hand. Indoor or outdoor, gym or home – everything works. As long as you are moving and getting closer to your goals whatever it is – fat loss, muscle gain, toning and conditioning or even mental health.

Just keep going! 🙂
