Frequently Asked Questions
You’ve got questions? We’ve got answers. We get asked a lot of great questions, and a lot of them are very similar to each other, so we decided to compile some of them that are asked most frequently into easy-to-find categories, which we hope will be of some use to you. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
You have to remember that every one of us is designed to have a balanced lean and healthy body. Unfortunately due to the processed food choices, miscommunication and insensitive marketing by the food companies, it makes it increasingly harder for everyone to maintain that lean healthy physique. But this simply comes down to education and this is where we step in to help and support your learning.
You can expect to lose between 0.5kg-1kgs per week. We’re here to make sure you reach your goals by helping you train consistently and stick to your programme.
We also follow a belief that can be summed up briefly as “to leave nothing to chance”. All of our clientele can expect us to deal with every facet of their physical conditioning. Our job unequivocally does not stop when you leave the gym door. As a matter of fact, it is only just the start, as what you do with those other 23 hours of the day you are not working with us will influence so much of the progress you make. We have put systems in place whereby we track and gauge progress in the best and most methodical manner in the Irish fitness industry; strip out all that is arbitrary and constantly tweak recovery, nutritional, supplement and training programmes to ensure that your line of progress is transparent and steady.
Healthy relationships are a vital component of health and wellbeing – it’s the key to success in your career and in your personal life. Research shows that healthy relationships can help you live longer, be happier, deal with stress and feel richer in all aspects of your life. At TPC, we believe relationships are a huge contributing factor to the term “holistic health”.
We take pride and enjoyment in building strong relationships within our clients and within our team. Through our social / fitness community, we provide a platform for all of our members to connect with each other on a personal and business level and when it comes to your career, there is nothing more valuable than being well-connected with the right people.
This is one of the keys to our success; understanding your individual needs and prescribing the exercises you need to excel. Many gyms gloss over an initial assessment. This can lead to unnecessary injuries and an ineffective exercise prescription. This is something that we look to avoid at all costs.
The amount of female clients who walk through our gym doors desperately determined (d0-or-die!) to shift the so-called “impossible to lose” localised body fat deposits are a testament to the misguided advice and confusion that proliferates the mainstream fitness market. They cannot figure out why they have them, in spite of living supposedly healthy lives. The answer is quite simple – their hormones are totally out of place and their extremely hard work only ever appears to make their problems worse. Invariably they work too hard in ways that are actually harmful to their long-term objectives.
As if this was not enough, how many of you can say that you sleep, without interruption, for 8 hours regularly at a time? How many of you have optimal digestion so that you can absorb all the nutrients that you eat (hint – in the USA it is approximated that 98% of all adults have dysfunctional digestion that can result in an array of internal and external physical problems)? We have the knowledge to readily rectify these conditions, but if they are left they are unchecked, they do nothing but deteriorate your physique, accelerate the rate of the aging process and severely impinge upon your overall quality of life.
We’re not trying to be doom mongers, but including this we have the curse of the sometimes-toxic Internet age, that is, information overload. It is easy, in fact it is extremely easy, to find information on how to add an inch to your bicep or how to lose those love handles, but how do you ever know what is the best road of action for you to take? The Internet is abundant with theories, agendas and pet causes from armchair experts. And then of course, all an individual needs to do is to walk into any facility and there are the inevitable Personal Trainers, eager and willing to give you conflicting advice. Everyone needs a trusted source to go to for advice, which is the reason why we have made the extra effort with this site, to not just talk about our level of expertise and knowledge, but to demonstrate it. If you are interested in how to choose a good personal trainer, a good, basic rule of thumb for checking anyone’s credentials in this industry, be they real life or purported Internet fitness experts is to follow these basic rules:
- Do they look like they workout? If they cannot condition and train themselves then how can they educate, train and inspire you?
- What type of people do they work with? A few anonymous results and testimonials are, to be honest, meaningless. Have they worked with individuals who demand the best and with individuals whose careers rest on them being in the best shape and as healthy as possible? If a trainer is trusted with a client, whose body is a thousands of euro commodity, you know you are in a safe set of hands.
During your consultation we will explore your fitness goals in more detail and help you choose a training program to suit your needs and budget. To schedule future sessions, you can set them up with us before you leave or you can give us a call. Appointments can also be scheduled on a recurring basis. If you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please call as soon as possible so we can reschedule you.

How Do I Join?
This is the easy part.
To become a member of our TPC Tribe means you need to go through our Challenge.
The Challenge is our on-boarding experience which is like no other.
When you register, the Amazing TPC Team will call you for your complete Nutrition, Health and Fitness Audit. On this phone consult, we will discuss your goals, previous training history, what has held you back from your results, your current nutrition and any injuries or movement restrictions you may have. This will give you a complete picture on what you need to do to get your results.
By doing this it allows us to make sure you get the best training program for you, set an expected timeframe to hit your goals, and go through our relevant membership packages. But it is also a chance for you to get to know us, find out what TPC is all about, put a face to the name, and realise that we are not your ordinary gym, we are much much more than that.
