In this article, I’m going to give you 5 signs that you need a female personal trainer.
In this article I will go over what it is like to train guys being a female myself. What are the differences between male and female clients and a little bit about nutrition differences.
1) What is the main difference between training a male and a female?
Frankly speaking there is no difference. The only difference is their goals. The ways to achieve the goals are mainly the same. The only difference is that with male I’m using much heavier weighs than with female. However, techniques used are exactly the same. Every body is different and I’m not thinking male fat loss program or female fat loss program I’m thinking fat loss program for exact body type.
2) What are the main goals for male?
Most of my male clients are training for fat loss and conditioning. It always seems to be a problem to push yourself that extra mile for better definition. Some of the guys want to learn new exercises because they are so bored of the same weights and training routines. Male clients mainly want to target ABS or arm muscles.
3) What about personal training for guys outdoors +/-
It’s great to train outdoors with male clients, because other than woman guys are not scared to get muddy, dirty, lie on the grass… On the contrary – they love it!
Places like Hyde Park is perfect for training, because it has little hills where we can do variety of things. It’s amazing to see how different clients feel after training outside. All that energy from nature seems to have very high impact on client’s moods and looks!
4) Yourself being a female personal trainer, do you have lots of male clients?
At some point I had more male clients than females. At the moment I have at least 4 regular male clients that makes around 15 sessions a week. It’s very common these days. Girls training with male personal trainers and guys training with female personal trainers.
5) Could you tell us about nutrition differences?
Every person is different so it’s very hard to generalize. Males usually can have much higher caloric intake. If the goal is muscle mass gain I usually do an assessment where I count BMR and lean body mass, this gives me an idea about required nutrition intake.
2.5g-3g of protein per kilogram of lean body mass. That is easy way to find out approximately protein intake.
If you would like to know more about it feel free to email me anytime 🙂
Guys are lucky – they have a testosterone which makes results quicker and easier compared to females. In general testosterone promotes protein synthesis. Testosterone helps with muscles mass growth, bone density and strength.
