Frequently asked questions
What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is competitive with this market. A 45 min 1 on 1 session is $35, an hour is $45. I do offer pkg pricing through Square. Fitness coaching should be affordable and when a client makes a commitment to work with me, I'd like to take the issues of payment out of the equation.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
It's extremely detailed. The first contact is important because I'm able to get basic information. However, when the client and I sit across from one another, I can ask more detailed questions that I use to assess goals and commitment level. It could last up to an hour.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a certified Personal Trainer through ASFA. Certified Sports Performance Coach through NASM and A certified Strength and Conditioning Coach through NCFS. I have a background in Physical Rehabilitation, Sports and Reflexology massage and Functional Movement. I've used these principles working with Athletics (Football/Basketball), Civil Service (Firemen, Police, Military) and MMA practitioners for over 26 years!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've ALWAYS been involved in sports, martial arts and boxing since the age of seven. I've ALWAYS loved training my body and eating well but it really wasn't until I lost close loved ones to controllable ailments that I gained a laser like focus on helping others.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Many, from all walks of life and backgrounds. Clients with Parkinson, Diabetes (Type 1 & 2), MS, OA, RA, Heart disease, Lumbar/Sciatic Nerve issues, Mobility, Balance and Flexibility issues and Weight loss, Muscle tone and Strength gains.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Working with a client who has a small pin hole in the heart. It's on going but she is Awesome!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a professional in your area of work?
Well, this is a question that the answer comes with a lot of Humility. I wouldn't say this is advice but my suggestion would be this. Out of all the reviews, testimonials, videos and the like, is this person the right Coach/Trainer for you? Don't worry so much about affordability because I believe that whatever you really want to do, afford you'll do it! If they have the ability to be totally honest with you and you can accept the truth then that's a possible match.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their weight loss project?
Your specific training goals, scheduling. Is this a total lifestyle change or do you just want to lose a few Lbs. Don't do it because of emotional issues unless it's going to motivate you in achieving your goals.
