Frequently Asked Questions



Where do the sessions take place?

Personal training with David can take place at your house, a local park, garden or in the gym at Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club.


Do I need to be a member of the gym to train there with you?

If you are only training in the gym with me then you do not need to be a member. If, however, you wish to use the facilities outside of our sessions you will need to become a member. Membership of the Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club gym is only £12.00 per month.

How much do personal training sessions cost?

Personal training sessions start at £25 and hour in the gym, and £40 for home training.  Discounts for block bookings are available, contact David Calver for details.


How Many sessions will I need?

This depends on your training goals and how committed your are to achieving them. The more regularly that you see me, the better your results will be. I would recommend at least one session per week to start with, but if you are able to do more you will see far better results.


How quickly will I see results?

If you are committed to your targets and follow my programme and diet plan closely you will begin to see results very quickly. It is possible to noticably change your body shape in just 12 weeks.

Is it hard work?

Fitness results don't come without a degree of effort, but hopefully we should be able to make the sessions fun as well as rewarding for you.

Am I too old to start training?

I have recently started training a client of 71 who had never been inside a gym until he trained with me, so there is no reason to think that you are ever too old to train. Obviously if you have never trained before and are, shall we say, likely to be among the first people released in a hostage situation, your fitness goals will have to be realistic and the training is likely to be less strenuous than that of a younger client.

Is it okay for me to train when I'm pregnant?

Exercise is very beneficial during pregnancy. A routine exercise and strengthening program can help boost your muscle strength and endurance and help prepare your body for labor and delivery. It is not advisable to try and lose weight, nor train for a marathon, when pregnant but you can begin a supervised exercise programme to help control weight gain and facilitate a rapid return to your normal weight.
