What THe Training Process Looks Like

At Tosum Strong, our personal training starts by tailoring a schedule that integrates seamlessly into your lifestyle. We then select an appropriate workout strategy, focusing on optimal techniques and muscle group training. This personalized approach ensures that each step, from fundamental skill building to advanced exercises, is aligned with your fitness goals!

1

Determine Training Schedule

First, we’ll establish your training frequency by discussing your goals and evaluating your current activity levels. This step ensures your workout plan fits seamlessly into your lifestyle. Recording your weights in the app during workouts is crucial. This not only helps in tracking progress but is also key for tailoring your training as you advance.

2

Choose Your Workout Strategy

Next, we decide on starting with full-body workouts, split routines, or a combination, based on what best suits your needs and recovery capabilities. If you’re a beginner, we’ll emphasize mastering form in the initial 8-12 weeks. This period is critical for developing neuromuscular connections through weight training, setting a solid foundation for your fitness journey.

3

Optimize Muscle Group Training

Lastly, we aim to train each muscle group twice a week, adhering to the FITT principle—Frequency, Intensity, Type, and Time. Our training will incorporate the seven fundamental movement patterns: pull, push, squat, lunge, hinge, rotation, and gait. Regardless of whether you’re training online or in-person, I’m here to guide you every step of the way towards achieving your fitness goals.

I am a fitness photographer and have worked with Charlene on several photography projects over the past few years. She truly is beautiful on the inside and out. Our most recent project was for the purpose of capturing professional fitness related content for her website, social media and print media! As a client, Charlene went over and above with the collaboration. I had so much fun and she is super easy to work with! It is my professional opinion that anyone looking for a fitness coach and trainer would be so lucky to be working with Charlene and should expect her to go above and beyond designing a personalized program! Her own physique is phenomenal and definitely her best calling card as she absolutely practices what she preaches. Charlene would also be an excellent choice for anyone wanting to be coached toward a bodybuilding show as she has years of experience as a competitor in several federations. Most recently she received 3rd place at the stacked WNBF Calgary Fall Pro Show and will be stepping on stage in Seattle within the next few weeks for WNBF Nationals! Wishing you all the best Charlene and I can’t wait to work with you again soon and love following your journey!
