What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Each client gets a free 10-30 minute clarity call to see what her most pressing struggles are to determine the direction of our coaching. In addition, my clients get a free fitness assessment that lasts anywhere from 1 to 1.5 hours.
During this assessment, we discuss past exercise and dieting experiences (likes, dislikes), previous injuries, strengths and weaknesses. This will help me formulate a custom training plan for each client.
