What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Rates depend on the training package you buy. My rates are typically broken down like this:
20-pack of training = $55 per session
10-pack of training = $65 per session
5-pack of training = $70 per session
Single session = $80
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love fitness and health. I played high school football (and basketball with Kobe Bryant) in Philadelphia. I played 4 years of college football at UR. I played 4 years of football in the NFL. I receieved my BA degree in Sports Science & Health. It was a natural fit!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Overall Wellness Fitness Programs For The Specific Individual
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Every single session with a client, I'm always proud of ....
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you do plenty of research on who you're about to hire. Don't necessarily look for certifications (CPR / AED, of course should be required) - but certifications are really meant for people looking to get into the business that don't have a background in fitness or don't have a college degree. Certifications typically take 4-6 months to obtain. And you can take the tests as many times as possible.
I studied, passed with flying colors, ALL of the subject matter that's included in those certification packages FOR 4 YEARS straight. I've lived, ate, slept fitness and health for almost 20 years now.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Personal trainers often get a reputation of being "not too smart". See all The Bachelor and The Bachelorette shows. TV shows seem to put the worst of us in front of the camera.
I received my BA degree in Sports Science & Health from a VERY well respected, nationally academically ranked university, that's VERY tough to get into - The University of Richmond, in Richmond, Virginia. Private university, approx 3500 students, average class size is 15 students.
