- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
As a general rule, the more frequently we see one another and the longer your commitment, the better rates I can offer. With that said, I want everyone interested in training with me to be able to do so. When we sit down together to discuss your goals and get to know one another, we'll take a look at different pricing options and find a way to make things work.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our first meeting will be a free one hour consultation. We will discuss your specific health and fitness objectives, any past injuries or health conditions that we need to take into consideration, the different types of exercise and workout routines that have (and have not) worked for you in the past, your approach to nutrition, and your own assessment of your physiological and cognitive health. We will discuss my approach to training and how we can develop a program specific to your needs and biology. In our first training session we will conduct a number of movement assessments. We will use video analysis software to analyze your biomechanics, so that you can see where you have developed compensations or other breakdowns in movement. Using that information, we will develop a program to correct any issues we have identified. This will help us to ensure longevity in your training and optimal biomechanics for life. Time allowing, we'll get to work on the floor!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I also have a master's degree in Human Evolution from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. My research examined our ability to use cognitive techniques to mitigate physical pain. I believe that we have a tremendous capacity to apply our minds in ways far beyond our current understanding, particularly with respect to physical adaptations. I apply this principle and other elements of evolutionary anthropology to training and nutrition.
