RAW personal training has been open since 2009. We have produced successful body transformations and consistent results in Central Hong Kong for over 10 years now. Clients come to us for either fat loss and muscle gain, injury rehabilitation, guidance on nutrition, lifestyle change, or to reach specific strength and conditioning targets.
When people come into our gym the first time, I personally meet with every single one of them for a free 30-45 min consultation. My name is Jeremy Meyer. I am the founder and owner of RAW personal training.
I have been a personal trainer for 22 years. I majored in exercise science and strength and conditioning at university. I have worked with a wide range of people from different backgrounds, experience and with different goals and have trained high school athletes, professional athletes and amateur athletes of different sports: American Football, Baseball, Basketball, Tennis, Ice hockey, Rugby, Wrestling and others. As well as working with athletes I have spent much of my career specializing in training clients for post-rehabilitation, pre-wedding transformations, pre-photo shoot transformations or to simply help normal people lose weight, change their lifestyle and become healthier and happier. My clientele has ranged from high school teenagers to seniors in their 70-80’s trying to improve their mobility and functional strength.
During the initial consultations with all potential clients, the main questions that 95% ask me are how long will it take for them to start noticing changes in terms of:
Looking better: – fat loss and muscle gain
Feeling better: – Increased energy, improved mood throughout the day, more strength and stamina.
The answer is, I expect all clients of RAW who are compliant with our programs to notice results within 14 days.
In order for this to happen, we follow a planned, step-by-step detailed process and focus on the steps below.
Step One: Collect, assess, and re-assess data on a weekly basis.
Each new client goes through a 90-min initial assessment. We measure body composition, take circumference measurements, test their mobility and ability to perform basic human movements. New clients are given scores for each section. We can then set short-term goals. We re-test clients on a weekly basis. This helps keep our clients motivated throughout the process. It also allows us to show our clients that the changes they are implementing are leading to tangible and measurable results. Testing and re-testing clients is highly important and most trainers in Hong Kong do not provide this service to their clients.
Step Two: In order to achieve noticeable results in 14 days, clients must train a minimum of 3 times per week.
When it comes to achieving results within any time frame, frequency and consistency is more important than intensity. Our clients do not have to train in our studio 3 times per week, but they are given detailed training programs to follow in their own time. We ask that each client messages us after they have done their workout in order to provide accountability.
Step Three: For our clients to feel better and look better in 14 days, we ask them to agree on making a minimum of 3 “behavioural” changes during the initial month of training.
These behavioural changes vary from client to client depending on their current lifestyle and nutritional habits. Initially, they can be as simple as exercising 3 times per week for beginners or untrained clients, to following a detailed nutritional program for advanced clients. There is a wide range of changes that are easy to implement and that leads to faster results.
We explain this in detail during the initial assessment.
