- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
There is a charge of $45/individual session or $65/couple. Online Personal Training is available as well.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My typical process when working with a new client is to first and foremost ask questions. What are their goals? What level of experience do they have? What do they enjoy about exercise? What obstacles may be in their way to achieving their goals? It is extremely important for me to understand what motivates my clients and what pitfalls have disrupted their progress in the past. It is my job to help my clients progress, so I must plan appropriately. From a more scientific stand point, it is also important to collect data, to know where we are starting from and define the goals ahead. We take anthropometric data like weight, height, circumference measurements. I look at movement patterns to check for deficiencies that may inhibit progress. I record performance records to track improvement. Then we periodically invest time in reassessing our progress to motivate my clients to perform better.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
All of the following boils down to one thing: BETTER EDUCATION = BETTER CLIENT RESULTS 1) I spent 5 years studying adult fitness and wellness while partaking in pre-physical therapy and athletic training courses. During this time, I spent 2 years assisting a physical therapist where I obtained a better understanding of the human body with a focus on back injuries. 2) After my attendance at EKU, I attended the University of Kentucky where I studied Biomechanics. This allowed me to have a better understanding of how the body moves while focusing on performance and injury prevention in runners. 3) I spent many months studying for both my Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified Nutrition Coach and American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) personal trainer certification. 4) I am currently studying for the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification in order to further my abilities to help athletes improve their athletic performance.
