Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. I regularly begin with new clients by doing one of my TRX Orientation Workouts with 1-2 clients where I teach them how to do several TRX exercises really well. Then, I provide them with a routine to do on their own and we'll continue to get together every 4-6 weeks (or as requested) to introduce new exercises, freshen up the routine and correct form where necessary. I provide all the tools and education for people to effectively take fitness into their own hands over the course of a handfull of sessions.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Be sure to have a conversation with myself or any personal trainer to ensure your needs will be met and you understand how the program will work.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. I wish people understood that fitness is a lifestyle committment and the best way to train long-term, in my opinion, is to learn how from a professional and then take fitness into your own hands with what you've learned.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. How will I continue to be successful with staying in shape long-term if I decide to go with you as my trainer?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I stand out from other trainers because of my extensive training background and ability to work with a wide array of individuals from young to old, male/female and extremely fit to the deconditioned. I'm also engaged with my clients in a non-threatening, patient yet effective way in order to encourage and educate people for success.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love that every training session is unique and that I get to tailor each workout to the individual. This keeps me stimulated and focused on each client so that I can create a program perfectly suited to challenge and improve my clients fitness now and into the future.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I became a certified fitness trainer originally in 1995 in order to learn how to train and become a better athlete. I played professional beach volleyball on the AVP for several years and always worked hard to improve. Since then, I've been growing in the fitness industry with ongoing education, personal experimentation and I love to share what I've learned and what has been successful for me.
