Pat has not only helped me lose weight and gain muscle but also helped me find my self-confidence again. I started seeing Pat to help with my shoulder injury. I enjoyed working with him so I continued with having him be my personal trainer. It was right after my 50th birthday. I can safely say my next 50 years will be healthier than my first 50. Thank you Pat. I highly recommend Pat to anyone looking for a good physical therapist and/or a personal trainer.Nov 17, 2017Verified
As a physical therapist and trainer Patrick's deep knowledge provides him with a unique lens for offering a comprehensive wellness plan. He is training me based on my needs and personal goals and inspiring me to see wellness as a journey not a race. He is respectful and professional. I highly recommend him.Feb 13, 2016Verified

Pat does a terrific job! His background in personal training and physical therapy is extremely helpful. He considers ailments and injuries when crafting personalized workout routines. He is supportive, encouraging and professional and I highly recommend him.Feb 5, 2016Verified
I spent several months with Pat as my personal trainer. He was excellent. Besides being just a nice man, he is extremely knowledgeable about the body and health. Within minutes of our first session, he changed some of my routines in a way that dramatically affected the loss of muscle I was experiencing just from aging. Every session was personalized to my specific needs and he readily addressed every question I brought to the table. I highly recommend his work and will return to him in the future.Jul 4, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Most people purchase sessions in packages of 10. If the sessions are done at my home studio, a package for one person would be $600 ($60 per session). If two people want to workout in pairs, they would just split the cost of $700 for the 10 sessions. If sessions are performed at your home location, then there are additional costs based on how long Google Maps says it takes to drive to your location. On average, this usually equates to about an extra $10 per session.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?1. We meet at my home studio for a 45 minute FREE CONSULTATION (or speak over the phone). Here you’ll have the opportunity to explain your situation, and I can answer questions about my services to help you decide what the next step should be. 2. If you decide you'd like to begin, we set up our first session at my home studio, or your location. During this ASSESSMENT SESSION, we evaluate your current health/fitness levels, and examine any other areas of concern, such as past injuries. 3. With what we've learned, we can begin to design the ideal fitness PLAN for you. 4. We then implement this plan during our REGULAR SESSIONS. Each session is about an hour long, and most people choose to meet with me 1-3 days per week. During these sessions, I would teach you how to correctly perform exercises that are appropriate for you. Throughout this time I also provide education regarding other related topics, such as nutrition, posture, and injury prevention. Most clients purchase the 10 session package ($600), which usually lasts about a month. 5. At the end of a package, I could issue you an exercise program to continue on your own. OR you could purchase another package, and I would continue to help you every step of the way. We could make regular changes to your workouts to account for your ever-changing needs, incorporating more variety to make workouts more fun and effective. As you get stronger, we could continue to progress to more advanced exercises. Or if you start having a pain issue, as a licensed Physical Therapist, I would adjust our sessions to quickly address the problem, before it becomes a more serious injury.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor's in Exercise Science with extensive Master's-level coursework (6 years as a full-time college student). I graduated with honors from UNI. I also received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from DMU. (an additional 3 years at PT school) I have about 15 years of personal training experience, and about 10 years as a Physical Therapist. I've received advanced-level fitness training certifications from the top 4 certifying agencies (ACSM, NASM, ACE, and NSCA).
