I am available for your personal training.

Making a decision to hire a personal trainer means that you have health and fitness goals that are important for you to accomplish.

Accessing your individual goals is crucial to setting up a proper training program. When you first begin, I will assess your current level of fitness as thoroughly as possible. As you progress through your exercise program, I will reassess all of your initial fitness assessments. Every so often, usually in three- to four-week intervals, I will have you go through some of the assessments you went through during your first assessment.

What results are most likely?

In 1 to 30 days, you will feel the difference.

During the first 30 days, you will notice your cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength rapidly increase as your body adapts from an untrained state. This is especially the case if you have been inactive for quite some time.

If improving you flexibility was one of your primary goals, and you have been working on it, expect it to improve slowly. While you will feel like you have more energy and are getting in shape, your body composition is not likely to change in the first month of training because your body adapts neurologically first.

In 30 to 60 days, you will be able to see the difference.

During the second month of training, you will continue to make improvements in your cardiovascular endurance as well as make muscular strength and endurance gains. Although the gains won't be as rapid as the first month, I will make adjustments to avoid plateaus so you can keep progressing.

During the second month of training, you can expect your body composition to slowly begin to improve, providing you have been eating correctly and doing the prescribed exercises during your training sessions and on your own time. Your flexibility will slowly improve as long as you keep working on it.

In 90 days and beyond, your coworkers, family, and friends will see the difference.

From 90 days and beyond, you are considered to be in a trained state.

    I contacted Dan for a family member, so cannot rate his actual training skills, but he was incredibly responsive, seemed to understand from our phone conversations what the issues were, and we are looking forward to working with him!

    I have a lot of good things to say about Dan, when we first met I was 6 months postpartum, and I was uncomfortable in my own body. I had a trainer before him and didn't see the results I wanted, so I lost faith. However, Dan was able to restore it.

    Just like everyone said, Dan tailors the program to your specific needs and goals. Then, he modifies it according to the areas that need more attention. Yet, what I think Dan has that the other trainers I have worked with lacked is his ability to connect with you. He really tries his best to build a relationship with his clients.

    If you are looking for a trainer who:
    1- Tailors your workouts to your specific needs
    2- Motivates you
    3- Cares about achieving your goals as much as you do
    4- Builds a relationship with you
    Then Dan is your guy!

    Dan has been the personal trainer for my husband and I for about three years. We are in our mid 70's. He has built our strength and flexibility through a double knee replacement and a shoulder replacement. By providing exercises that strengthen my core my cronic back pain is gone. We are stronger, have better balance, are more fit and feel great. He keeps encouraging us to lose weight even though we have not worked at it hard enough to meet our goals.

    Can't say enough positive things about Dan and his training methods. He builds the program around your goals and needs. I have been with two trainers before Dan, and there is no substituting the decades of experience and knowledge that he has. The program he wrote for me was so simply laid out that if it didn't work, it was because I didn't have the discipline, not because the plan wasn't good- so, accepting that a lifetime of good health will come from a 3-4 hour a week dedication is a prerequisite!

    I have been involved in sports and fitness for most of my life. My journey has not always traveled a straight and narrow path. A few bumps and detours have resulted in unfortunate distress that led me into a lifestyle of unhealthy eating and poor exercise habits. As a former fitness instructor, I knew I could be better.

    Dan Kritsonis is one the Pacific Northwest’s premiere fitness consultants. Passionate about health and wellness, and equipped with the appropriate credentials, Dan has been helping others pursue and achieve their goals for balanced and healthy living for over 30 years. Dedicated to continuous learning and innovation, he is focused on my unique requirements and fine tuning my exercise regimen to achieve better results faster while targeting goals that are safe and effective in meeting my needs.

    Feeling good is about more than physical outcomes. It's about emotional victories. After losing 100 pounds, I am on a healthy path to losing the remaining 30 pounds, renewing core strength, and continuing my journey toward emotional and physical balance.

    We all need someone to push, motivate, and guide us, as well as understand our strengths and weaknesses. Dan is helping me get maximum results by personally tailoring my training sessions while coaching and motivating me to do my best.

    With a master’s touch, Dan commits himself to a love of fitness and health. And because he is genuinely passionate about helping me reach my goals, I know I am in good hands!

    My husband and I were looking for a trainer who could work with people in their late 50's, and we were delighted to find Dan Kritsonis almost 3 years ago. Speaking just for myself, I was recovering from cancer treatment when I met Dan. I hadn't done weight training for more than 5 years and was concerned about being at high risk for lymphedema. While getting us going on a routine, Dan studied the facts about lymphedema and designed a routine for me that helped me strengthen my upper body while not overdoing the weight and the number of repetitions.

    Dan is the wisest trainer I've ever met. I recommend him whole-heartedly.
