How often do you meet with your personal training clients?
All clients have different needs, wants, goals, budgets and lifestyles therefore how often we meet for session is determined on many variables. During our initial consultation we discuss our schedules and availability and decide together on your optimal session schedule.
What are your personal training fees?
The fee for a personal training session is $65.00 tax included. Private coaching, yoga and Pilates sessions are the same fee.
What can I expect with your personal training services?
Taking the step to hire a personal trainer is an important one and for some a big one that might be exciting and overwhelming at the same time. When you hire me as your trainer we become a team.
We start by meeting for a consultation where we sit together for a conversation to get to know each other to ensure we are a good fit for this process, discuss your medical history, fitness history, current lifestyle, your goals, needs, wants, etc. Together we review our schedules and availability to review options for training sessions. We work together over a series of sessions where I teach you your customized exercise program that is tailored to your specific goals. As we move through your sessions we adjust as necessary, progress your exercises to keep you challenged in the right ways for you, and ensure that safety is of the paramount focus. During your 60 minute sessions, I guide you through teaching you breathing, alignment, technique, form, pacing, and educate you on the mind-body connection and other appropriate topics related to your specific goals. Sessions are choice-based, meaning you choose your level of participation based on your energy and comfort level, you are in control of your body and choices at all times.
